You have some issues reason can not reach.
Eight years can be a long time. They only look short when you look back at them.
Evolution marches on. That means those that come later have to wade through the shit you left behind.
Not ranting - stating Inconvenient facts.
None of which have been disproven.

These facts can be examined almost anywhere if one chooses to investigate.

I attend this forum purely for amusement and you are one amusing poster. I like T town clownie as well, For the same reason. ;)

It's hilarious watching you guys dance in circles.
A smile is better on your face muscles than a frown, thus my enjoyment of this! ;)

Fear not I only venture here occasionally perhaps once a week. This being a holiday weekend I find myself somewhat bored.

I appreciate your continued support in my laughter!

That was supposed to be a rational statement?

I can't say it was "bad". I would just have to say it was the best you could do.

Interesting sidelight when Egyptian tour guides are questioned about Moses...

Wrong again as usual David

My "Audience " is an Ill-informed, under educated, juvenile, dogma addicted, fact-allergic, reality-challenged group that are still engaged in a courageous battle with literacy and mental health.

Tough they are not!
Hilarious they are!

See how stupid and myopic you are? I don't have that.

They may think you are worth saving, I don't. I have as much regard for you as I would a mad dog or fleas. I see you as failed product easier to recycle than fix.

Yawn
Really? that would be your hook, line and sinker.

Consider, your heaven and/or your Hell actually need exist to warrant any critical thought on my part... they do not meet my criteria.

And if memory serves... It was your sky daddy that created evil! Cruel prank for a god!

Unfortunately it's all too very very human.

There are many like you sitting in a corner giggling to themselves about how the rest of the world is crazy and they aren't.

You are special, OK.

Actually it is sympathy for, not "despising", of those under the illusion of their reality and rationality.

It can get frustrating dealing with them, but God understands.

Nah. It's atheists or better defined as "the irreligious" they despise and fear.

The larger question is why?

Not conforming to their various faith cult dogma poses no threat.

Yet, they feel compelled to hate the irreligious.

Irony meter explodes!

One could conclude that religion is based on hatred not love.

Watch them Indians, they will scalp you. They will get their revenge on you.

I do miss the casinos in New Mexico. Had 4 of them within 12 miles. Great buffets. Cheapest cigarettes, too.

There were 3 issues in my life that have been affecting me for the past 5 years, which all came to a head in the past 3 months. A message from the bible related to these 3 issues was randomly delivered to me by a stranger. Shortly after a couple of other things happened which presented a resolution to the issues.
The last 5 years of issues coincided with my choosing to be agnostic, and the resolution to them coming with a biblical message is what changed my heart. It was truly a Dues Ex Machina to me, like you would see in a movie where several plot lines intertwine and resolve themselves.
Nothing like it has ever happened in my life.
I'm glad that a message from the bible was able to inspire you, and make your life better.
If people need God in their life to make them better, then by all means...have God in your life.
I respect that, and would never want that taken from anyone.

BUT, being an Agnostic, I must add....so often do "believers" give themselves credit for their won change...they give that credit to God, when it was actually their own inner strength the whole time.

My point is WHY would God help you resolve issues....but NOT be there for the kids at Sandy Hook, Oklahoma Tornado? Boston Bombing? Starving, beaten, and molested children?
If God took the time in YOUR life to ensure you receive a very important message, why not do the same in dire situations involving innocent children?

I guess that's why I'd never worship or understand the supposed Christian God.
I mean, anything that would qualify as a God would understand this...is that really a GOD worthy of worshipping?
