Atheism is a “belief system” in that they believe that you ought to demonstrate that you know something about a god before accepting that said god exists and wants something.

The “golden rule” is by no means unique to Christianity or even western civilization. It doesn’t take a deity to figure out that society is nicer when people treat each other well.

There certainly doesn’t appear to a be any gods anywhere…but there’s no shortage of people who want to claim they’ve heard from god and that god wants you to give them money.

“They do not have the necessary tools to discern spiritual reality from spiritual counterfeits.”
Neither does anyone else. That’s like saying that someone doesn’t have to tools to discern real leprechaun gold from counterfeit leprechaun gold. Until we’ve established that leprechaun gold, or “spiritual reality” is actually a thing, everyone is making claims about something they can’t even demonstrate even exists.

Not much? It’s called a cellular broadcast. At worst, they could send annoying messages to everyone connected to a cell.

It’s nothing new. The technology has been available since at least 1997. It’s called a “cellular broadcast”, and basically sends a text message to every phone connected to a cell (transmitter).
There’s no “right” that anyone has to protect them from exposure to differing opinions.

You’re right, we should have just started another pointless war so even more of our soldiers could get killed and maimed. Good thinking, conservatives, good thinking.

If you don’t think women should vote, then by all means, start with yourself.

Do you realize that your candidate AGREED with just about everything Obama has done, and stated so during the debate? Romney’s responses were almost entirely along the lines of “I’d do what Obama has done, but then some more.”
Keep talking about liberals, but ignore the idiots on your own side, I guess.

It’s impossible to debate with Gingrich or anyone else who’s slipped off into Conservative dream land.

I still don’t get what you morons think he lied about. There was an attack during what appeared to be a protest. Could have been two separate event or they could have been coordinated. The government did well not to say a whole lot until an investigation was done. This ridiculous attempt at turning this into “the president lied’ is going to blow up in your faces.

Oh please, don’t bring up 9/11. Bush led the country in what could possibly be the worst knee-jerk reaction of all time. We invaded Afghanistan and then Iraq for nothing other than the need to lash out after a terrorist attack, and we have achieved nothing other than sending our economy into a downward spiral (oh, and sending young people off to die or come home with PTSD).

Never met a lie she didn’t like? Sounds like she’d fit right in at the RNC too!

Ah, I see, you’re being all figurative.

You missed his joke.

Probably neither. Cleanliness is not a religious matter.

You seem to be confusing “all out war” with people not choosing to believe the same as you.
February 24, 2012 at 12:43pm
I suppose that depends on what “divided” means. Divided on political grounds? Religious? Culture?
