Reality is truth. You are unable to see it due to your Alzheimer's.

You like to use that term "we". You need to get on the stick, because your peers are going to mature and leave you behind.

People using science usually put to death by the religious leaders. Yes in that way they have been a part of each other.

I am almost at the point of really feeling sorry for you. Seriously you have no idea how ignorant you sound do you?

What happens when a seed starts to come to life? Should be the same for plants or animals. You need an energy surge to begin the process.
You and a rutabaga have a lot in common.
Become a product of a seed and look back at your very beginning. You would see much the same process.

Yes there are. You obviously have no researched the matter yourself. Simply look up secular evidence of Jesus, there is plenty.

So hitler killing all those Jews who he dubbed Christ killers was a good thing in your eyes. Just like a family member dying of cancer sparked the cancer treatment center?

This just goes why Christianity is the worst possible form of morality imaginable.

Typical ignorance.
Christianity 101. All that is evil can only exist by an act of free will. This does not negate the power God may exercise to make something good emerge from a tragedy.
Just as family members who might lose a loved one to cancer, to make something good turn out of it by starting a new cancer-aware program.
A logical atheists would know this, and would not make this error. A rational atheists takes the time to learn the theology, before making such foolish remarks.

It’s weird, Atheist don’t believe in God. Yet they believe all life just magically self created from sterile material and made this crazy run on the earth. We know that’s impossible because scientist have not been able replicate it in this modern era of science.
Then they point at us believing in a myth. But it’s acceptable for them to believe in a myth. Even though science does not support their position. They say science will one day will come up with an answer for how it all started.
Science will come up with a time machine way before they figure out the genesis of life.
It's weird that god can only live in the gaps of science.

You spend all you time arguing over scientific theories and hypothesis, but never once have I heard you mention where science got it right and the bible got it wrong. Why is that?

What is your god's cure for leprosy?

Yes, killing one bird, then dip another bird in the first bird's blood and then let it fly away.

Has this ever worked to cure leprosy? Why aren't we using it today?

Because it is absolute bullshit.

How old is the Earth?

Not 6,000 years, as the bible clearly states!

Was there a flood 5,000 years ago, which covered the entire Earth?

No. There has been no such flood in the last 4 billion years or so.

So, you stay in your ever shrinking gaps! You will not be missed.

After all, evolution also hates pretty much everything Christians do. Immoral people obsessed with petty desires are not desirable to the overall survival and expansion of the species.

Oh, great! Another subset to the WAG family! "evolution also hates" How do you come up with this shit?

You are neither rational nor logical, and you have no idea what those even mean. You are deluded into thinking your imaginary friend is real in spite of being unable to present any real evidence that it is more than imagination.

Italian jeans maker with trademark on 'Jesus' cracking down on US apparel companies

http://www.foxnews.com/us/2013/02/26/italian-...

"Attorneys for the company say their trademark is similar to the trademark owned by Nike, whose namesake is the winged goddess of victory."

How true. The god, demigod, son of god, whatever you want to call him, joins the ranks of other mythological gods we now use for marketing. I bet the christian churches are pissed! They have had exclusive rights to the marketing of the name,'jesus' for 2000 years!

frikken intense pain. I've been stung or bit by all kinds of insects and critters numerous times.

Those are some really bad ones. Maybe I'm sensitive to those. All I know is I'd choose 10 hornet stings to just one of those if given the option.

They're like a jellyfish, all it takes is just a light "brush" against those spines, and it's done. It's delayed, too.
