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.

You know just some advice. You would feel much better if you took the time to wash those jeans you are wearing.
Well, I'm not wearing jeans, so….I guess you'll have to fantasize about me in some other type of clothing...

Have you tried those colorful silk bloomers Catcher plays soccer in?

They look great with knee socks.

Yet, he refused to let me and my brother, Fountain Crick, visit him and go to the beach because we are both over 6'6 and 300 pounds and wear cut off bib overalls with cowboy boots and Alabama tube socks.

Can you believe that hoity-toitiness?

OK. We'll leave PeeBob at home.

How's that?

He's not as hip as Fountain and me, anyway.

He's soft-hearted. If a fight were to break out in SoCal, he would be hesitant to rip somebody's face off.

I can’t even joke around with some of these folks. They have steam blowing out their nose, ears, and @sshole all the time. Peace unto my friend, always peace.
I agree, and even when I disagree, I can agree to disagree :-)

Recent news that impacts both Christians and Atheist. The Supreme Court is set to rule on prayer before local government meetings. This is going to be difficult for the court to rule on. Because prayer has been said before government meetings going back to 1787. A historical precedent has already been set.

If it was unconstitutional I would have expected it to have been stopped 226 years ago. But the founding fathers of this nation had prayer before government meetings.

We must remember in this balance between separation of church and state. The first amendment says "Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof.”

The part I would like all my Atheist friends here on topix to note is this,“Or prohibiting the free exercise thereof.” So individuals can and should be able to freely exercise their religious beliefs within reason. No matter where they happen to be. On government property or private property.

But organized and scheduled prayers before government meetings should be suspended by the Supreme Court. A lot has happed since 1787 and America has become more religiously diverse. I don’t want to here a Satanist prayer for example. If you allow organized Christian prayer that opens the door to any religion to participate.

That doesn’t mean a High School Student on the football team is prevented from saying a prayer with his teammates before the game providing they volunteer to be in the prayer group.

Now this we agree on... I've said the same thing of prayer groups in school. If they have a private prayer group outside of school time they should be at to...provided that its not mandatory for the entire school to have to hear it or participate.

My good Doctor, why are you so angry all the time?
It could take 50 hours to motor 200 miles in the Gulf???
Sure if one travels only 4 mph.
We were going much faster my good Doctor than 4 mph. By the way it was a day trip.
Don't be so angry Doctor. You know I respect and love you.
Impossible for it to be a day trip, most deep sea fishing boats travel at 15-20 knots, and thats really moving, so you'fre lying once again, it breaks down like this.

In a car traveling at 60 mph it takes 4 hours to go 200 miles, 30 mph, 8 hours, 15 mph 16 hours. If your fishing boat travels and 15-20 mph it would take 16 hours one way to travel 200 miles, 36 hours round trip. You are full of shit once again!!!!

I can’t believe you’re getting all worked up over a fishing trip that I took in 1990’s.

We traveled 4 hours out into the Gulf and fished for 2 hours and then traveled back for 4 hours. I know it was too far to swim back and we couldn’t see land.

Who freaking cares anyway?

Why are you so pissed off all the time?

BP has been airing the commercials with Jon Parker saying,“safety is at the heart of everything we do.”

Those commercials make me hate them even more. They should spend their money helping the communities they devastated. And stop trying to make themselves look good. Their company image is shot. And their efforts to improve it isn’t helping.

But they don’t get it just like Tony Hayward didn’t get it. I can still see him saying,“I want to get my life back.” Maybe he should have spent some time in prison to help him get his life back.
