You will accept the opinion of others re intelligence? We know you have issues recognizing it.
I will accept facts not opinions, opinions are like buttholes, we all have one

Facts are what you imagine them to be, sweetness. You can supply plenty of them for yourself.

After all, what is the difference between what you dream and what you think when awake? Same body taken care of by the same mind.

No I have not...

WHAT I HAVE SEEN:

I have seen HATRED and CONTEMPT from virtually ANY Xtian that bothers to post in a forum where they are not only unnecessary but unwanted. Get thyself to thy holy forums.
You do belong among thinking individuals.

The 'religious' have stunted minds.

Xtians refuse to THINK.

They question NOTHING.

They BELIEVE every silly thing they're cults teach and preach.

I find each religious poster to be:
Reality Challenged, Fact Allergic and Brainwashed into organized superstition aka RELIGION.

It happened again yesterday, the mysterious deflection of weather from this little town.
For a half hour I watched a severe T-storm approach with lots of hail in it on radar. But instead of it diverting about 5 miles out, this time it just kind of fizzled out while it passed over and started again after it did. I watched the radar and it was still organized up to a mile away, very red and violet. Then we just got a few drops as it passed over, where it resumed its intensity. It was a large storm.
The same thing seems to happen where I live. Go a bit north or south, and they get these tremendous storms. Here, we get a couple of bits of rain and perhaps some lightning that lasts a few minutes.
Is it my deodorant?
I do appreciate not having the wicked hail storms, though.
I grew up in central Kansas and we had some amazing storms there. I truthfully miss them. The ones around here are paltry compared to what I grew up with.

I'm glad you called that atheist out on that. I read on another atheist forum where he claimed that atheists don't blame God for bad things. You and I just proved him a liar.
Now that we agree on this, watch them call us sock puppets. They just are such a paranoid bunch.
Have you notice when we get to them with a good come back or witty post, how mad they get and claim you can;t be a christian! and talk to us weak atheist like that!

I posted a link a few days ago to a CNN photo gallery of black and white photos of some of those Plains storms. Really dramatic looking, something you can only see on the Plains or a mountain looking over them.

I grew up in S. Florida where we had some very impressive lightning storms and deluges, but the lay of the land didn't let you see them at a distance. Those couldn't match these Plains storms for wind ferocity, though.

This area, about 80 miles from the Rockies, seems to be the mixing bowl that creates those Kansas storms. SW winds with moisture scooting around the south of the Rockies, winds coming off the Rockies, and cooler air from the north. You look up and see clouds heading in all sorts of directions.

Big hail storms can be real impressive.

It has been 50 years since the Supreme Court banned school-sponsored prayer. But God and faith are probably present in more ways now than ever in public school

• "See You at the Pole" began in Texas with 10 Christian students praying around their school flagpole in 1990. It has blossomed into a yearly ritual involving 1 million to 2 million public school students nationwide meeting on a designated September morning before class.

• Informal Bible study groups have proliferated, judging from anecdotal reports, sometimes meeting on campus, sometimes at a coffee shop or someone's home.

Nope, fact is fact, imagination has nothing to do with fact and your statement highlights one major limitation of davesworld when compared to reality.

The difference - what you dream you have no control over, a waking thought you have control over and can direct.

I have seen it the difference identified as

A dream is uncontrolled thought.

A thought is a controlled dream.

Say what? Never happened and as far as I can ascertain can never happen. For one you need some intelligence to come up with a witty comment and even more intelligence to come up with a good post.

Certainly most of the godbots I know on here are incapable although there are a few (very few) that can and do

Nope, you do that. You believe in a myth, a nothing.

Think of the definition, how can you blame something that you don’t believe. Of course youe dunning kruger stupidity prevents you seeing the incongruity of your illogical statement.

Same source.

There is plenty of crossover of what you said, so that is not an accurate description.

You need to grab one of those biblical witches, borrow her broom, and head to the nearest library.

I would say that any supernatural entity does not exist, that religious faith is a serious mind-altering delusion.
You are fixated on a false belief.
The daily news always contains some horrific act committed in the name of some God.

I have always been good about resurrecting dead machines. Pulled many a dead device out of trash piles and made them live again. I'm a Jesus of the junkpile. Another few jolts and Scar may come to life permanently.
