Dave Silverman can continue to be on Fox news, while Hemant can continue to be on NPR. Same message, different platforms, different markets.
Atheists are well known to not be birds of a feather.
celebrating these holidays are inclusive events, teach my kids about what other people believe koo-koo or not, and are generally nice times.
However, these are in my house. If I see a nativity scene on city hall, I will put up a tree of knowledge or somethng.
good luck rev Oxley
I havent used pot since high school over 30 years ago and back then I mostly smoked it because is was illegal, but I am with you, it should be legal. I think it would be a good opportunity for NY to follow NHs example and completely socialize it. We can follow them with alcohol because we already have a distribution system in place for alcohol and you would ruin jobs. After the coffers are full again, we can talk about freeing the market for it.
Now if pot is ok, how about meth or coke. If those are not OK, why not? My worry is that there is clearly a line, but the line itself it fuzzy. Frankly i think opium should be legal. No one is dangerous who is using opium, even f their teeth are disgusting.
Virtually all atheists would change their postion given evidence of a god or something we call synonymous with god (.e. aliens that made earth). They would also agree that jesus was really the son of god if these aliens or gods told them that this was true. We probably would still find them repugnant for all the same reasons we find God repgnant now.
Atheists, agnostics and frankly many religious people live in a way as if god doesnt exist. So who cares what the minute difference is? Why the hell do we have all these other words that mean the same things also? (freethinker, humanists, brights, blah blah blah)
As people looked at me like I was a dick, I said quieter, "no I'm dead serious, if you write with this pencil, you will see the exact same improvements that that guy with the bracelet is offering. Just indulge me, I'll do it for free instead of his 25 bucks, what have you got to lose?"
I did the stupid kinesiology trick to two or 3 people and pretty much cleared away the crowd as they realized that the power balance guy was full of it. It was my own personal, one and only skeptical triumph.
I'm sure a new crowd grew 10 minutes later.
I'm sorry but without even deciphering through your convoluted logic I can tell you immediately why it is most assuredly wrong. You tried to use only logic to prove god. There are lots of logical paradoxs, fantasies and simple "proofs" of the impossible when you miss out on the important part: Observation.
Basically you wasted a lot of your time writing that.
The other thing was that I was writing a lot, I looked back on some of my posts and am still proud of many of them. But, I dont feel like they have made much impact. The energy required to make impact is not an amount I am willing to expend. Plenty of people are doing it and doing it better than me, and spending their daily time on it.
But thanks for commiserating. I appreciate it.
