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.

Overall the online atheist makes it harder on the out going atheist. I never meet one that did not tell me to pay these guys online no mind. From time to time I wonder if they say that in person, then turn around and make post like these clowns.

All the kids will be coming around tonight for Halloween treats. Be sure to turn off your lights.

Their Moms & Dads should know,“Oh no honey don’t go there. That’s where Bob lives.”

And for goodness sake this year don’t wear that freaking John Wayne Gacy, Clown costume. You freak everyone out including the parents. Just keep it on the low down and watch some TV Bob.

<quoted text>Everyday is proof that God is real? Really? For you to say that, and to actually believe it, means you have no scientific background on how planets are formed. You are no different from the ancient goat herder's that looked up at the night sky and because they could not have possibly understood what they were seeing, attributed it to a mythical being. These people had NO other choice than to believe in a magical being that created the cosmos, they had NO science. You, on the other hand, have mountains of information available to you, specifically on how planets and stars are formed. You either can't read, are unable to comprehend what is written, or choice to remain ignorant. Being willfully ignorant is one of the worst traits a person can have. "Everyday is proof of God." What a childish and simplistic statement. You should be ashamed that you have not advanced beyond the mentality of ignorant goat herders.
Michael Kaku and many other scientist say the same thing, the more they learn the more they believe. You re too stuck with that minor league crowd that teach.

RED SOX need to win tonight

With the World Series down to a best-of-five as the Red Sox and Cardinals take the festivities to Busch Stadium, here's a look at five keys for Boston in Saturday night's Game 3...

1. Get something from the bottom of the lineup.
Since Mike Napoli's three-run double in the first inning of Game 1, the Nos. 5-9 spots in the Red Sox lineup have combined to go 2-for-33 (0.61)-- and one of those hits was the Stephen Drew popup that fell between befuddled pitcher Adam Wainwright and catcher Yadier Molina early in the series opener.

Throw in a couple of walks and a sacrifice fly, and that half of the Sox lineup has reached base at a .111 clip against the Cardinals over that same span, and what's scary is the bottom of the order is about to be thinned out even further. Saturday night they'll put Jake Peavy into that portion of the lineup, while removing Napoli, because the National League doesn't allow the designated hitter. It'll stay that way through Game 5.

Obviously the Sox survived the struggles of their lower-half to win Game 1, but Game 2 showed why that might not be sustainable. Against a team with a bullpen as talented as St. Louis' is, a team can't afford to give away innings, or even at-bats. It's going to be difficult for the Sox to score late in games, so it's imperative that they keep the line moving, and turn the lineup over frequently enough that their big bats have a chance to do damage. Those batters in the 6, 7, and 8 spots don't necessarily need to drive in runs, or score themselves -- but every time they draw a walk or get a hit, the Sox get one batter closer to Dustin Pedroia and David Ortiz, both of whom are hot.

In an effort to help that, John Farrell will use Daniel Nava -- he of the eighth-best average and fifth-best OBP in the AL this season -- as his left fielder for Game 3. And while Drew might look like a lost cause at this point in what's been a dreadful postseason offensively, here's one reason to think he could come around:

Before going 3-for-4 with a double and a triple on May 26, Drew was 1 for his previous 24. Before going 4-for-5 with a homer and two doubles on June 4, he was 2 for 23. Before going 3-for-5 on June 21, he was 7 for 47. And before going 3-for-4 with two homers and five RBIs on July 27, he was 1 for 15.

The point is, Drew has shown a tendency to bust out of slumps in a big, bold way. The Sox can't expect that to happen Saturday -- but, if it does, it might be exactly what they need to win Game 3.

<quoted text>As far as the IRS targeting religious groups, they absolutely should. Churches pay NO taxes, and anyone with a crazy idea can form a religion and escape paying taxes. I can declare that the fish gods from Neptune created the universe. I could form a church around that belief......mmm, let see, I'll call it The Neptunian Religion. Now, do you think I should be tax exempt?
BTW, I have just as much evidence that the Fish Gods from Neptune created the universe as you do for God doing the same, that evidence is...zero!!!
The trick includes that you don't own anything your non-profit organization owns, so yes it should be this way.
GL however finding a following to support this fish god enterprise.
It exists on donations alone, so you could put all your personal profits into this and be exempt , but unless you have supporters making donations ...it is a losing proposition.

Thank you for mentioning Dr. Kaku.

"This week Dr. Kaku addresses how physics has revolutionized mathematics. In the video below, Dr. Kaku says we might imagine God as we know him to be a mathematician: "The mind of God we believe is cosmic music, the music of strings resonating through 11 dimensional hyperspace. That is the mind of God."

I quit doing Halloween years ago-- you hypocrite christians would send your teen age kids around and trash the neighborhood.

I used to do it for the little ones-- but due to Christian Poisoning of the holiday?

Little kids are no longer allowed out and about.

You should be proud: Your sort has killed a children's holiday.

Due to your ugly hate-beliefs.

"imagine God"

Then call your imagination "Gods Word" and bash everyone who disagrees with you.

Babies and miscarriages all go directly to Hell. They are unsaved and damned!

What do you expect of an evil deity that (allegedly) murdered every living thing on the planet except a handful of people and animals. A deity that ordered the murder, rape and enslavement of entire nations.

Bible God is a real evil POS.

Of course!

Just watch: one of the True Believers™ will trot out "age of accountability".

When they do? Ask them for a biblical reference--- there isn't any...

Giftmas!

That is what I call the celebration of Winter Solstice: giftmas.

The exchange of gifts with people we love, and people we are expected to love (but sometimes find it hard to).
