In America, atheists are still in the closet

So do many other interest and identity groups. Complaint is our political lingua franca: it's what Occupiers, Tea Partiers, Wall Street titans, religious and irreligious people share.

Hey, on another subject.

Any idea what's happened with Dave Nelson?

I think it's been over a week since he last posted.

That's not like him.

Right.

So cience is always correct because it is always correcting itself and always changing.

Yesterday the earth was flat, today it is round. Yesterday the sun revolved around the earth today it's the other way around. Scientists assured us that heavy objects fell faster than lighter objects and changed their mind.

Isn't science fun?

Those theists, on the other hand... same god for 5,000 years...

It aint necessarily so wrote:
"The vast majority of the scientific community and academia supports evolutionary theory "
The vast majority continue to believe in God.

It is almost as though the scientific community as well as the theist community is not as monolithic as you NotBots insist.

Better to spew my "Christian" sprite than the boy spiddle that you haven't managed to swallow, SweetCheeks.

Putting aside contradicting the crap you post and pointing to the fool you are doesn't make me any more a Christian than the crowd who share the same opinion, SweetCheeks.

Did not give two sh!ts about SDI: he knew exactly how well it would work (and how well it has worked over the last 25 years).

BTW: you read up on the Emancipation Proclamation yet, SCROTE?

Just something else you are wrong about.

"According to the Director of Arms Control and Disarmament Agency, three-fourths of all the USSR's propaganda budget from 1984 to 1986 was directed solely against SDI".
yes...SO WHAT?

You do remember that Reagan promised to SHARE SDI (after Americans spend a few hundred million for it... putting aside it never worked)?

But then you forgot that the Emancipation Proclamation freed only some of the slaves, not all, as you asserted.

Are you aware of the difference in "round" and "spherical"?
The earth is neither 'round' nor a 'sphere'.
The Earth is very round, no matter how hard you stomp your fat lying feet.

And the Emancipation Proclamation did not free all of the slaves in the USA, no matter how hard you whine and cry.

Atheists are such posers. They insist on telling little children their dead parent, or sibling is worm food and then making fun of them when they cry. Atheists are sick to the core they can't find.
Now THAT is biased. I know several athiests who would never tell kids their dead sibling is worm food. There is a common stereotype of athiests that portrays them that all they do is try to convince people there is no deity. There are plenty of super-nice athiests out there. You only notice the jerks and say that every athiest is awful.

Would you like me to say that all Christians force others to believe in their god? NO! Because my practically my whole family are Christians and they are the nicest people you could ever meet! Also, my parents are athiests and they are incredibly nice as well, so I know that neither of the two stereotypes are true.

Bringmedinner, go out into the world and find yourself a couple of nice athiests! It'll do you good.

I didn't come close to saying the US military was a party, Scrotum.

I understand when things don't go your way, you have to make things up.

Maybe you can borrow from KowKow who makes things up and then copies and pastes the exact same thing a few dozen times.

PS: If you had served in the US military, you would know the US military goes out of its way to make sure you vote if you are inclined to vote- everything short of ordering you to vote.

That's correct. But it can become anywhere from reasonably likely to overwhelmingly likely.

He didn't give two sh!ts: What he cared about was he would be forced to match the spending that Reagan was going to waste on SDI in the Soviet Union and he was sure spending the money that Reagan was prepared to waste would destroy the economy (what was left of it) there.

You did.

So you looked up the Emancipation Proclamation and you read the fine print and it turned out that I was right and you were wrong.

Emancipation Proclamation did not end slaver in the USA as you said.

As long as you are civil, I don't mind what you post. You're doing great, BTW, although not with everybody. But you seem to be trying with me, and I appreciate that, Buck. I'd rather trade riffs with you than personal insults. I'll never respect what you respect. But it's not personal, and you seem to understand that now.
