Here, people are rather irreligious.
It is a culture shock 4 sure. USA is viewed as backward in many ways, in spite of, military superiority.
We are getting used to hi-speed rail and public transport.
Very efficient.
People with no theistic beliefs never feel the need to conquer those who have them. We never assemble huge atheistic armies to kill those whose beliefs we do not believe.
We do not march door to door to tell total strangers how bizarre and silly their religions are.
Too bad this courtesy is not returned.
It is true that it is difficult to get any two atheists to agree on whether to capitalize the word “God” but I doubt there are any, anywhere, who would call for pistols at dawn to settle the dispute!
Atheists don’t kill because of atheism. If they kill, it is for some other reason. The very idea of “Atheist Wars” is so preposterous it makes one laugh.
But the idea of Christian wars and Muslim wars and Jewish wars is not only believable but quite real and with us today.
Indeed-- it was not that many generations ago, when Genuine Christians™ were still murdering atheists as soon as they found them out.

This took place for centuries.

Now that the godbots no longer have power over unbelievers? They are trying to complain about being "persecuted".... right.

The most I ever hear atheists do, is criticize their quack beliefs (now that doing so is not an instant death penalty).

As you say-- atheists, for the most part, are simply not interested in murdering people who are different.

Interesting response, no one said you were a Catholic. I use the term clergy to be general, as you were when you said you were molested.
I've never--ever said I was molested. And I haven't.

That was just you-- fantasizing again.

Do you really get off on fantasizing about molesting kids? I ask, since you keep bringing it up so often.

The best part of the statement was some other atheist applauded you for stepping forward, and said "No Christians would have the guts to come forward here as you were." and you just took that compliment, then leader you bobbed the statement, as Bobbing Bobby does.
Post a link to this alleged post-- you can't because you are 100% lying here.

You are just confusing your FANTASIZES with reality.

You are one sick f7ck.

Can you explain why your god is so "good" to you, but treats kids in Africa like they were literal worm-food?

In that they are starving and die by the thousands each and every day.

What makes **YOU** so special, and THEM so worthless?(in your god's eyes, obviously)

We were of course talking about cosmology. I think in your case it would be better if you understood cosmetology first. Before you delve into the more complex philosophical stuff. Then gradually we could ease you into understanding cosmology and astrology.
This is all more complex than the ins and outs of the porn business you're involved in.
Porn business? What?

Anyways - thanks for the laugh. You possess less understanding of cosmology than a grade schooler. That you can even compare it to astrology tells me all I need to know about your "understanding."

Besides his God sitting and watching these children die horrible deaths each and every day, his God also loves to watch the parasitic worms that burrow into the eyeballs of these same children.

There is a heart wrenching account of the young mother on her journey to find food and water for her two young children. The youngest was so weak that she had to stop and rest. Then realizing that the child could not take another step, and if she stayed her and the other child would surely die. Can you even begin to imagine what it took for her to leave her youngest on the side of the road to die a slow and horrible death while she continued her journey to save her other child? And this demo God did what he always does, he sits with arms folded and does........absolutely nothing. It's almost as though there is some perverse enjoyment in watching the suffering of young children!!!!

But then again, can't you see how he would confuse astrology as a science? He deals in mythical beings and magical events only, so astrology fits right in.

Other previous post, you remarked about Matthew 6:6

If you take the time to read bible it'll contradict itself enough to make all religions, in any foundation, false.

Everything is relevant to everything. You would understand that if you understood your formula. It is a matter of degree and direction, and polarity caused by the first cause, when the switch was thrown. It didn't turn on by itself.
Your beloved term energy, my love, is one of those most ill defined and nebulous words you can come up with. If you get down and serious about analyzing just what it is you will see the causation of the circular logic employed in modern physics, and which has taken us off the path, lost in infinite loops of math. Energy is motion, or more properly, the displacement of a medium. Gets kind of hairy tracing it out though, but that is what it is. Nothing moves unless something moved it, by direction or inadvertently.
Oh, lovey, the hours you and I could spend enjoying physical sensations while discussing these intellectual thingies. The tapping into your raw energies and passions. Gets an old man all stirred up.
You really have no idea do you? You actually are clueless, congratulation, you have just hit the top spot on the most stupid people I have met on here.

We are talking about E=MC^2, the fact EVERYTHING is derived from energy seems to leave you stumped on the fundamental principals by which this universe operates.

You try and add complications that only you can understand and guess what? No one actually cares about your davesworld wet dreams and rampant sexism

Oh yes and I see that you have not got the intelligence to validate your ignorant claim that I provided misinformation.

In NO WAY have you provided the slightest semblance of evidence that my post contains any misinformation. All you do is spout lies in defence of you lies.

So what does that means – it means you LIED – again

It is people like you who give christianity a bad name, the very reason why christianity is dwindling. Congratulations, keep it up.

P.S. I am not going to go away just because you are ignorant.

No your not *into* cosmology and astrology, thats obvious from you ignorant posts on both, nor are you apparently *into* any of the sciences, its no wonder you are ALWAYS speaking in ignorance when it comes to any subject that involves science. You have made no point, you have babbled on in ignorance as usual, and thinking that you have somehow made a point is further proof of you delusional mindset
Yes, music theory get into some very deep stuff, and as I remember stuff your son was completely unaware of, and probably still is

You got a little testy there Doc. You know what that tells me?

I got you all worked up over a freaking school mascot. At least he’s not a Irish Bull Dog like some mascots.

He probably got his degree from watching Star Wars over and over. A Yoda student.

I’m sorry you have been duped by Mr. Hawkings. But your specialty is Music and not space cadets. What else could we expect.

But the way I see it you could have done worse. You could have picked Buzz Lightyear as a scientific reference.

Some parts of Africa are very civilized and the populations do well.

Other parts of Africa have been ravaged by wars and mismanagement by their governments.

Men and corruption are the cause of these wars and atrocities. When nations turn away from God the outcome is never good.

By the way, when you see him, my God. You can ask him yourself about all these questions as you sit by the fire.

Psalms 50:

16. But unto the wicked God saith, What hast thou to do to declare my statutes, or that thou shouldest take my covenant in thy mouth?

17. Seeing thou hatest instruction, and casteth my words behind thee.

18. When thou sawest a thief, then thou consentedst with him, and hast been partaker with adulterers.

19. Thou givest thy mouth to evil, and thy tongue frameth deceit.

20. Thou sittest and speakest against thy brother; thou slanderest thine own mother's son.

21. These things hast thou done, and I kept silence; thou thoughtest that I was altogether such an one as thyself: but I will reprove thee, and set them in order before thine eyes.

22. Now consider this, ye that forget God, lest I tear you in pieces, and there be none to deliver.

23. Whoso offereth praise glorifieth me: and to him that ordereth his conversation aright will I shew the salvation of God.

Your “observations” of energy are limited to sticking you head in the fire. Oww hot, Oww hot, must be godmagic

Nope they are only complicated if you don’t want to understand and it is becoming more obvious that you are quite happy with you head full of seagulls

I think you will find that in the majority of these African nations ravaged by war that the population are very devout believers in god.

For the most part the christian god or the Moslim god. Oh wait a moment, it’s the same god, the god of Abraham
