So who is praying for children to starve to death?
Who's praying for childhood leukemia?
Who is praying for birth defects?
Because their prayers seem to be working.
Evidently not the same ones praying you get a brain.

Just because you said "I believe..."?
At least when an atheist uses the word "believe" or "belief" he implies an element of doubt.

That's a difference between a theist and an atheist.

A theist denies any doubt when he uses those words in reference to his god.

Sounds fun. Will you jump with me? No hang gliders or those fancy modern gadgets.

Sure they can. Gender is a role, not a sex. Any twinkie can marry any butch in any state. Likewise femmes with the tops.

You're stupid, and ignorant.

Hey we got an angry bride here! Calm down triple chin.

Dave was knocked loopy he did not have an NDE. An NDE is a hallucination or dream. We can recreate them with in a controlled environment.

Sorry fatass but it's true just like eating all those empty calories is making you fatter.

NDE does not fit into the parameters of hallucination.
You know nothing about the subject.
Even more certain, you know nothing about the physics and physiology occurring in Dave's experience.

Sounds like a threat there at the end there Dave. You know people who suffer head injuries like yourself often have trouble controlling their anger and are a much higher risk of violence.

I am sorry that I learn from studying and not banging my head into the wall because god told me to.

Honestly it doesn't seem to be working out very well for you. Perhaps you should take a nap and rest your brain damage now?

I have read about boxers having crazy dreams or hallucinations when knocked out.

Spiv is a trip. He read about, but hasn't experienced. He learsn from reading, but he ignored the fact I had a dumpt truck and bulldozer come crashing through my driver's door at 40 mph, with me being the center of impact, and being all alone in there for 15 minutes or so hanging upside down, and I was just knocked out like a boxer. Nowhere near death.
Buck, the boy needs a lesson in getting knocked out or a NDE.

Bet they look for other things beside terrorism.

You could have worn a red tie and red pocket handkerchief to a party on Mat 1 in the early 50's, and some concerned citizen could have written the FBI thinking you may be a commie. You could probably still find that letter buried in a file on you in FBI archives.

They never throw anything away.

With these new search algorithms and internet monitoring capabilities, and info sharing with various agencies, just imagine.

Ya that's why you get all that spam. I could care less what google sees. I actually looked up a recipe for cake mix cookies that wifey wants to make for her class :)

My neighbor's wife is a detective Dave! We have them over for dinner and go to their condo for board games and snacks weekly! Gasp!

Looks like you're correct again, Aerobatty...
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Same-sex_marriag...
Same-sex marriage appears to be banned or 'not legal' in more than 30 states. What an embarrassment for the USA. It'd be better for the USA to lead the way than have to be led.
JMHO

I'm not up on US law on the matter, but maybe Pres Obama's statement indicates that the USA will now enter the 21st century in regard to gay rights and treat them with the equality they deserve. Now we just have to wait for the USA to catch-up in regard to atheists and regard us as well too....
From:
http://usatoday30.usatoday.com/news/religion/...
"The latest survey, from June, found that 54 percent of those asked said they would vote a "well- qualified" atheist into the Oval OfficeŚ the highest percentage since Gallup began asking the question in 1958, when only 18 percent said they would back a nonbeliever."
Only 54%? Still a long way to go.

Happily for all, there are signs that the USA is getting there. More young people than ever are 'non-religious' which is an advance. Let's hope more reject superstition altogether.

From:
http://topics.nytimes.com/topics/reference/ti...
"Despite changing attitudes, though, polls continue to show that atheists are ranked lower than any other minority or religious group when Americans are asked whether they would vote for or approve of their child marrying a member of that group."

Religion = superstition
Theology = mythology
