Been there. Sorry, my man.

From what you said I assume some kind of assisted suicide is out of the question. I also take it this is in keeping with his expressed will.

I hate to be seen as cheapening human life but in this case I can only hope he passes quickly.

Sorry Tangle.

Re: New Topic Spinoff
Yet through the magic of the maths and physics, the conclusion can be reached that there is NO God.

Is there any physical evidence to evidence your god? Is there any set of physical facts that can only require a god to be explained? Is there any reason other than personal emotion to suggest that such a thing can exist?

You are not allowed to hide your god unless it doesn’t exist. You are not allowed to hide the evidence of your god in some supernatural cave of ignorance.

So where is your god? Show me. Have it come around for a nice glass of Chardonnay.

Show me some handiwork in this universe that can only come from your god.

Give me any physical evidence of this extraordinary claim there is your god.

I’ll give you a break, Thug. I know it’s an unreasonable demand because we both know it cannot be done.

With the logic of the math and the physics the conclusion *can* be reached that there is no god just like there is no pink polka doted unicorn sitting on the edge of your couch. Ignore her. She’s harmless.

How many times must we check the North Pole before it is accepted as positive that Santa Claus does not exist?

Whoa!

Re: A circuitous relationship
Yes, but it does show Al is operating on the godless reality side of the universe.

And if you wait another few decades maybe one of your "serious relationships" will be with Erotica the Sensual Home Companion.

So you keep threatening but nothing ever happens. None of your future prognostication will ever come true just like none of your past predictions. It's all bs.

Re: Topic Summary According to Thugzy
How is being deprived of a wisdom that is going to kill you a "threat?"

Religious quackery. Wisdom does not kill. Religion kills.

Care to compare body count, let's say, Crusades vs Penicillin?

God could if you'd let Him but apparently you aren't interested

Humanity tried that already. Hasn't worked out for us. Nothing but torture, blood, war and a few statues. No thank you.

I think what it means is that all that worldly wisdom will no longer exist when Jesus comes back and sets everything right for eternity.

Next time you talk at him tell him to take his time.

I think it would make me rather peculiarly happy if you were there too.

Thank you, Love, but it really is not going to happen. It's not real.

Re: Topic Summary According to Thugzy
Not a great argument. For starters, if not for the Crusades, Europe would probably have been overrun by Islam. Then there is the fact that atheist (read: Communist) regimes killed far, far more people in just one century that all the Christian wars in history put together.

Oh Dear Muslima, do you really think the horrors of a few here and there excuses the blood, pain, and suffering perpetrated by your creed for more then a millennium?

You make excuses for a philosophy of hate.

How sick can you religionists get?

Re: Topic Summary According to Thugzy
Still trying to excuse the oceans of blood of slaughtered innocents murdered by your creed. And using other slaughters as a justification.

Sick.

Just like the commies your legacy is war, torture and death. You should be treated in like manner, reviled by humanity, ostracized from society.

Re: Topic Summary According to Thugzy
Oh, I nearly forgot ... as well as the hundreds of millions killed by Communism ...

More justification for your Christian slaughter. You just love showing your evil.

Keep going. You do more to advance atheism than a dedicated little antichrist could ever hope to accomplish.

Re: Topic Summary According to Thugzy
Freedom within our society includes the freedom to be a twat, but not where you are being such a twat that we have collectively decided that you would harm others by behaving that way. Fair enough for me.

On this side of the pond we feel pretty much the same way but extend our First Amendment rights to the point just short of causing actual physical harm. We do not believe that speech is harmful unless it is directed to incite immediate violence, say, provoking the crowd to stream out of the meeting to go kill, or calculated to cause an obvious harm like screaming “fire” in a crowded theater.

The overriding belief here is that speech, no matter how caustic, is better free and open so the rest of society can react, positively or negatively, to the ideas expressed without any directing interference from government. We do not see government’s role, and vociferously reject the idea that government should have any role, in regulating the marketplace of ideas no matter how ugly an idea may be. Government cannot be allowed to decide which ideas are allowed/disallowed to be expressed. That decision is for us as individuals and thus as a society.
