This forum isn't really a religious debate forum. It's really just for atheists. Y'all tolerate theists, but the forum is for atheists and you scare away every Christian that would dare step foot in here.

No shit Sherlock...

Did you work that one out for yourself, or did you cheat and read the banner at the top of the page?

What a cunt you are. What kind of human being says something like that to another person they don't even know? And this has nothing to do with atheism or Christianity, it has to do with a basic sense of what's right and wrong. To have that kind of spirit in you...

You know, I'm more convinced than anything that's what it's all about.

Judgment Day? Who knows what happens on Judgment Day. God and Christ know the heart--no one on earth does. But Jesus said you'll know a tree by the kind of fruit it has, and look at your rotting, hateful, sadistic fruit.

You think I've wasted my life? Bitch, I'm a registered nurse. I care for people every day I work--people you wouldn't touch. I went to school for it, I was on the Deans List for it, it meant that much to me, and I've been at it for over 10 years. What the fuck have you done for humanity? Except wish people horrible deaths?

You call yourself an atheist? I don't think you are. I think most atheists just can't stomach the shit they see all around them passing for knowledge and wisdom. I would imagine God can respect that. He made us that way. But people like you? Who say things like you do. You just have nowhere else to be. But I don't think most atheists want to be associated with that, or painted with that brush.

What a sick fuck you are. I just want you to know that I know that about you.

Here, have a Mark Twain quote:

"Travel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry, and narrow-mindedness, and many of our people need it sorely on these accounts. Broad, wholesome, charitable views of men and things cannot be acquired by vegetating in one little corner of the earth all one’s lifetime.” - Innocents Abroad

Nice quote, Full Circle. Couldn't agree with it more. But most people are bigoted and prejudice. Some are just more honest than others about it.

Saudi Arabia (20 times, 3 weeks each time)
Lived in England for 8 years.
Lived in Canada when I was 10
Mexico x2 trips
Germany once
Spain twice (10 days each time)
Sicily once
Scotland and Wales several times
Diego Garcia (70 days)
Azores twice (4 weeks total)
Turkey (10 days)
Most of the states in the US
Guam
Hawaii

And I still have very close ties with England because my daughter and my 4 grandsons live there.

Tell you what, I've traveled enough so I don't want to do it anymore. That's for sure. No

That makes some sense since I seem to remember you were in the Navy. But this just perplexes me more about you. I have found, like Twain’s remarks, that well traveled individuals have a much higher acceptance of other cultures, lifestyles and thinking, it is a natural progression and comes with seeing how many different ways a person can live their life, what foods they eat, what gods they pray to if any, and what their daily lives are like, etc.

But you break the mold and I don’t mean that in a positive way I’m sad to say. I would have thought that someone of your age, who has seen as much as you have of the world would think more inclusively and have a life outlook closer to “live and let live” than your current one of “everyone is wrong but me”.

Oh well, c’est la vie.

Living on a base is not the same as visiting the country. I've worked professionally in 23 different countries and lived for extended periods in 3. Yet I've hired Navy and Air Force guys who've travelled to three times as many places and you'd never know it.

Just recently I was on business to Spain with one of these guys (ex-Airforce) and he had all the cultural sensitivity and awareness of Reg Varney.

Pssst .... he doesn't really know even one atheist, in real life. (He needs to feel all *church lady*)

Insufferable know-it-all.Einstein God has a plan for us. Please stop screwing it up with your prayers.

Re: I can do it
You're better?

I have been nothing but nice to you. All you've done is insult and accuse everyone.

This is why being nice is pissing me off lately.

I do.

Quote:But you break the mold and I don’t mean that in a positive way I’m sad to say.

Yeah, but you don't know what you're talking about. You're talking to a magician and telling him why something is true based what you saw him do.

"Look, pal, I'm telling you: rabbits come out of hats. You saw it yourself. Hell, you pulled it out!"

It would probably surprise you to know that I actually like most of the people in here, and someone like that idiot up there who hopes me and my wife die horribly, even though you read my reply and you assume a seething anger, truth is, I don't even know him and couldn't care less what he says. I'm more concerned if my commas and periods are in the right place. But you wouldn't know that from what I wrote.

But then that's the talent. You don't even know what I believe. You think you do, but I assure you, you don't. My religion can be summed up in about two sentences, and I have no desire to share it. No

Quote:I would have thought that someone of your age,

[Image: blablabla.gif] Someone my age, who's been doing this sort of thing for over 20 years, has a lot of practice. I am so far beyond any concerns about atheism or what this or that Christian believes--you just don't know what you think you see.

Quote:who has seen as much as you have of the world would think more inclusively and have a life outlook closer to “live and let live” than your current one of “everyone is wrong but me”.

Oh well, c’est la vie.

You think atheism is the end of it? You think you've arrived at some truth?[Image: laughloud.gif]

You look one direction you see Christians; you look the other you see atheists, but you can't see what's right in front of you. But it's like you said, c’est la vie.
