"Science has nothing to do with my believing/not believing in god. Believing in god and trusting in science are not mutually exclusive but I can examine the evidence for both and I find one factual and one not. Wanna guess the factual one? Science is…"
"Lol, you could give it up to catch the flight out but I bet after you arrive, it becomes a personal hobby. Partnership will be a point of conflict at the start with a new group only once every two years."
"I don't see a problem with killing her. She saw no problem with killing the guy. It's a fair price for murder if you ask me. As an atheist, I see value in life some theists don't. There is no after life so life is all you get. If you…"
"I'd just tell the guy, if I'm wrong, I'm hell bound but if he's right, he's hell bound too. All that bias, bigoted hate speak is buying him a one way ticket to be your cell mate in the here after. I'd tell him I'm…"
"Good points but there is the other side of the same coin. Most of these medications have side effects like depression, insomnia, suicidal thoughts or tendencies, mood swings and a whole host of others. Should a doctor that puts a child on these…"

Ah yes...Louisiana.. a place where God sticks his finger in the eyes of hurricanes and tornados, guiding them here with the sole purpose of testing our faith! All the innocent lives lost is well worth it, just ask the faithful! :)

hey Bryan, just wanted to let you know that i removed the thread you just posted on the survey results showing atheists and agnostics know more about religion as there already exists a thread on that subject in the forum. check it out here.
the moderators would appreciate you searching the forum first to make sure that there isn't an already existing thread on the topic you mean to post so that we don't have redundant threads cluttering the forum up.
thanks very much!
