I don't want this to be a chance for you to tell me what is wrong with the theocratic abscess burrowed; the thorn in your side or the vacant imperfection imposed upon the resident scapegoat. I care not to afford you the opportunity to lick your wounds in my sight or to appease the cultural norms subscribed.

Without the fear on the other side of the fence nor the ruckus in the alley way I want you to tell me what the benefit of an atheist lifestyle is had the social and political majority not absolved you and the necessary protestation of that artificial insemination had manifested itself in hindsight.

In other words, had there been no myth where would you see yourself rather than where would you see yourself in light of it.

In my scenario, our nature has evolved past 'magical thought' - and that would mean a paradigm shift in civilization that would very likely free us from a lot of our cyclical mistakes.  Just saying.

Earlier I offered a Latin term which loosely translated is a jackass rubs the back of a jackass to make them feel good. 

Why don't you and Heather rent a manger in Jerusalem and start a cult.

People like you have no answer.

Jesus fucking Christ, Heather Sponheim is as obtuse as a caboose.

Its fucking funny. She is so dumb.

Much hate I sense in you, young Henson. The path to the douche side is a dangerous one.

Is theism a "lifestyle" (like the supposed "gay lifestyle")? or is it more of a theological orientation?

Well we are all born atheists similar to being born gay or hetero.

The religious lifestyle, I love it. You insist on being religious. You can walk around thinking about religion, have it in you head, but its only when you act out on those thoughts, entering into religious relationships, performing religious acts, 'thei-cating' if you will, shoving your religious lifestyle down our throats, that you get yourself into trouble.

It's just a religious agenda methinks.

We aren't born atheists.

Why do I sense a technicality coming here?

Ok Unseen hit me with it.

A baby does not have a position on the question of God's existence. Nonbelief is different from disbelief. By parity of logic, we aren't born apolitical, we're born unaware of politics. 

I could have wrote your response, Unseen.

Ignorance is bliss.

Albert Einstein famously said:

We are all ignorant, just on different subjects.

Smart cookie that Albert.

I can assure you Blaine, it wouldn't be his only, or even his most serious, problem --
