Problem? To what problem are you referring? To the problem of theism? Anyway, to the rest of your post... For one thing, it's completely beside the point being made with Ozzy. For another, you've been living under a rock for the past decade or two... right? (May 9, 2016 | post #1031358)

You're telling the thread (though perhaps, albeit, unwittingly) that theism/religion is primarily concerned with 'self'... specifically, in your case, with self-preservation. Most atheists you'll encounter will already be aware of that... as most you'll encounter will have previously given the topic much more serious consideration than you've given it (or are even willing to give it). Continuity of life matters more than continuity of self, regardless how distressed and insignificant the thought makes 'self' feel. I don't remember the exact wording, but there's a saying, about camping, that goes hand-in-hand with 'leave no trace'... ... "If done properly, no one will know you were ever there." Though imperfect in either regard, that's a pretty good philosophy camping... and, to me, personally, it applies equally well to living. "Do as little harm as possible" is something the majority fails at miserably... many don't even try... and appealing to "God" to save us, or for "His" forgiveness, or for "Him" to let us into Heaven where we will live forever... ... is selfish and ignorant. Atheism itself provides no comfort... however, the first step to solving a problem is to stop being the problem. Need more be said? (May 9, 2016 | post #1031343)
What smear tactic did I employ? If you said that you're racist, even just a little, then you said you're racist. I'm not saying there's anything wrong with it... not saying there isn't either. Right/wrong is beside the point. Whether you said it or not is the point. Did you ever imply that you're a little racist (as opposed to a lot)? If you say "no" and I check, will you be caught in another fib? BTW... Liberal? Why bring that up? What does it have to do with you being racist (assuming you are)? (May 4, 2016 | post #1031138)
Your god doesn't do anything, never has, and never will... nonetheless, the feeling's mutual. (May 4, 2016 | post #1031137)
Last I heard, Redneck was just a 'little racist'. He's short with a wide wife. (May 2, 2016 | post #1031056)
For another, he said he NEVER described his god as immaterial. (May 2, 2016 | post #1031054)

Hold your fingers up. Count them off, out load, but say "six" after every number, like so... "One-six, two-six, three-six..." (Apr 7, 2016 | post #1029989)
1. I think you're an idiot. 2. You just confirmed my suspicion... again. (Apr 7, 2016 | post #1029971)
Pssst... I wasn't even expecting a danish... just the lousy pint. Don't tell Boo. (Apr 7, 2016 | post #1029969)
