What has basic arthritic got to do with slaves or is that genuine question about math? In that case the answer is 8 and I suggest you go back to school.

Real psychos and Topix atheists have one thing in common that is most telling. They both think they are absolutely sane and everyone else is crazy. Two things. They make their own reality.
Goodnight.
I nominate Dave for nobel prize. Or perhaps Buck and Dave in collaboration for nobel prize.

Anyway, you didn't answer the question, so...
What I said was "You just described a deity who appreciates skeptical scientific thinking more than belief on blind faith."

And you answered
RiversideRedneck wrote:
<quoted text>
Why are you always going on about "blind faith"?
But "faith" is firm belief in something for which there is no proof, so actually "blind faith" would be redundant.

And you totally ignored the content of my comment and tried to redirect the conversation by focusing on the word "blind". If that bothers you so much, leave that word off. It doesn't change the rest of the comment.

So --

You just described a deity who appreciates skeptical scientific thinking more than belief on faith.

Sense you seem to be a fart expert why not open a thread on fart types and you and all your buddy's can chat all day about your fart types.
Sorry.

One would think I would learn to read my own post before I hit post button, seeing as to how the iPhone does love to change words on me, not saying its all the iPhone but at least two thirds are iPhone word swap outs. The the word "SO" it always changes to "DO" I ask WHY! Why does it always change SO to DO? I think my iPhone is demon possessed!
Mine used to do that. It stopped after one of the updates.

A serious historical study of ALL religions is very revealing.

One could say RA was the basis of the desert religions.
Worship? Why?
Religion has inserted itself and its inane beliefs into civil law in many countries, including this one. Zero proof of what they claim. The three desert religions in particular - hate each other and have been waring against one another since their inception

And do you think that unto such as you;

God gave the secret, and denied it me?
Well, well, what matters it! Believe that, too."

"I don’t know if God exists, but it would be better for His reputation if He didn’t."
...Jules Renard

"An atheist doesn’t have to be someone who thinks he has a proof that there can’t be a god. He only has to be someone who believes that the evidence on the God question is at a similar level to the evidence on the werewolf question."
