Atheism requires as much faith as religion? bearvspuma : The only problem with this rationalization is that ita s assuming all athiests are so because theya re intelligent in the ways of science and reasoning and all people that believe in a form of god are unintelligent.

Speaking of cigarettes in Cherokee North Carolina major brands are 24.95 a carton.
Harrah's has a casino there also.
What part of the country are you in Davy?
SE Colorado now. Long ways from casinos and cheap cigarettes.

I didn't go for the gambling, I went for the buffet. Don't think I ever spent more than $10 on the machines, even in Vegas. I was a penny machine player. I bleed slow.

But I have a sad story to tell today. Picked up a quick pick lotto ticket at the store a couple of days ago and plumb forgot about it until today. The drawing is tonight. Haven't got a clue where I put it or what I did with it. Of course it would've been the big one.:-)

MLK had that ability.
Then again... so did Robert Green Ingersoll
Robert Green "Bob" Ingersoll (August 11, 1833 – July 21, 1899) was a Civil War veteran, American political leader, and orator during the Golden Age of Freethought, noted for his broad range of culture and his defense of agnosticism. He was nicknamed "The Great Agnostic."
Many of Ingersoll's speeches advocated freethought and humanism, and often poked fun at religious belief. For this the press often attacked him, but neither his views nor the negative press could stop his rising popularity. At the height of Ingersoll's fame, audiences would pay $1 or more to hear him speak, a giant sum for his day.
In a lecture entitled "The Great Infidels," he attacked the Christian doctrine of Hell: "All the meanness, all the revenge, all the selfishness, all the cruelty, all the hatred, all the infamy of which the heart of man is capable, grew blossomed, and bore fruit in this one word--Hell."
http://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Robert_G._Inge...
In 2005, a popular edition of Ingersoll's work was published by Steerforth Press. Edited by the Pulitzer Prize-winning music critic Tim Page, "What's God Got to Do With It: Robert Ingersoll on Free Speech, Honest Talk and the Separation of Church and State" brought Ingersoll's thinking to a new audience.
I enjoyed your Titan story!
Did you like the Lincoln Kennedy comparison?
On a completely different unrelated topic but for the curious... Of which you are...
I strongly recommend a documentary by Charles Ferguson entitled "inside job".
A real eye-opener into the debacle that was 2008.
http://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Inside_Job_ (film)
I loved the Lincoln/Kennedy comparison. I had heard that before. Both of my parents are historians at the professional (albeit local) level. You're right, "Inside Job" was notable for it's approach.

It's your book clownish, not mine!
I think it's hilarious! You take it serious! Rotflmao
I think you are unintentionally funny but not in the way you'd like to be.

Did Jesus lie or was it John?
" Very truly, I tell you, the one who believes in me will also do the works that I do and, in fact, will do greater works than these, because I am going to the Father."
--John 14.12

Ignorant or lying angel?

"The Lord God shall give him the throne of his father David: And he shall reign over the house of Jacob forever and of his kingdom there shall be no end." – Luke 1.32.33.

Hmm. Did Jesus ever get to reign over the house of Jacob?

Thy guidebook does not make any sense clownish, like you! Have your foreskin at "ready status". According to your book, god likes these. ;)

Actually, IF all the historic books of the Bible were blotted from the memory of mankind, nothing of value would be lost.

<quoted text>you're ignorant! it don't make sence to you because you are lost! fact according to my bible you are a FOOL! once again Bro. Clownie rubs dung on the face of a dummy
But you know nothing... Dung is what your book contains. It speaks to you but not to anyone with any serious intelligence. It's painfully obvious you've never read nor do you understand it.

What isn't boring in that book is sadistically cruel, rabidly misogynic and just plain primitively stupid.

But even more important, the Bible is supposedly the guide to morality, inspired by a deity.

Why is any of that awful stuff included in such a supposedly wonderful document?

Why does anyone have to make excuses for the filth in it? The "context" argument does not hold.

There is no moral context into which murdering babies, for example, may be inserted.

One of the most conspicuous blind spots Christians display is regarding Jesus' "Sermon on the Mount."

Snippets of it are cited repeatedly and even nonbelievers know some of them.

That sermon begins in Matthew 5:3. Some of its better known "beatitudes" include: Verses 3 through 5 - "Blessed are the poor in spirit: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven. Blessed are they that mourn: for they shall be comforted. Blessed are the meek: for they shall inherit the earth." Also Verses 7 through 9 - "Blessed are the merciful: for they shall obtain mercy. Blessed are the pure in heart: for they shall see God. Blessed are the peacemakers: for they shall be called the children of God."

Yeah, yeah... But. But. But...

What makes this so ironic is that a mere eight verses later, in the same "Sermon on the Mount" Jesus says this: "Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to fulfil. For verily I say unto you, Till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law, till all be fulfilled.

Whosoever therefore shall break one of these least commandments, and shall teach men so, he shall be called the least in the kingdom of heaven: but whosoever shall do and teach them, the same shall be called great in the kingdom of heaven." (Matthew 5:17-19) And again, "For had ye believed Moses, ye would have believed me: for he wrote of me.
But if ye believe not his writings, how shall ye believe my words?" (John 5:46-47)

There you have it. Jesus is unambiguously talking about Old Testament Law!

Jesus, the supposedly "gentle carpenter" from Galilee, as part of the Christian Triune God, participated in every single Old Testament atrocity.

Get it now dummy?

PS: It is wise to read a book before you comment on it.

Central Florida here but i travel quite a bit.

We've squandered thousands on slot machines over the years. Not one large win ever. ;(

we were in Amsterdam in a very small casino - we're talking closet here - 10 slot machines and one person watching them.

My wife slides a few euros into a machine - hits some kind if Jackpot - we have no idea how much because we don't read Dutch!

It turned out she had bet the max, and it paid €1800! Frankly Dave we were stunned and thrilled. Ironically this is the only time we ever won a lot of money on a slot machine.

It's permitted us to extend our visit and do more high-speed rail travel.

Good luck on your ticket ;)
I would say a prayer for you but you know me...
