    I didn’t know there was a “band” on same sex marriage! Does this guy play the skin flute?

    As a straight man I find it so odd that all these god-fearing Christians are walking around being sexually attracted to both men and women and only choosing to be with the opposite sex. I for one do not have a choice…I am not sexually aroused by men.

    I hate to break it to you…you are bisexual.

    Lol. “Did you feel that wind?” “It’s gods breath!”…”Oh my! Do you see it raining? Our show is making him weep for joy!” “Hear that thunder? He is laughing!”

    @foment

    It seems most theists have the same disease. The inability to distinguish between evidence and what they want to believe. It is frustrating but nevertheless fascinating.

    Hey Avenger I found a Dr. for you. He is an Osteopathic Physician…but happens to be an expert in food, drugs and supplements, HIV and Aids, cancer, sunscreen, microwaves, and vaccines. Now, you have no need for those experts in those specific fields when you have and Osteopathic Physician who is an expert in all of those. LOL!

    Trust me Avenger…I can never take the “look stupid” handle from you.

    Friends of Science? How about you go find me some peer reviewed info from…wait for it…climate scientists.

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Friends_of_Science

    Let me give an analogy that even you might understand.

    You have Ebola like symptoms…you got see 100 people regarding your condition.

    99 of them are infectious disease experts and 1 is a holistic homeopathy expert.

    97 of them say you have Ebola and that you need to be quarantined and take an aggressive action to fight the virus.

    2 of them say you have Ebola but you don’t really need to do anything.

    And 1 of them says you just need to eat raw fruits and veggies and do some yoga.

    I’ll let you figure out who you are listening to.

    What does that have to do with anything I was saying? I would be nervous sitting next to people with many ailments and diseases. I’m nervous when a toddler sits too close to me on an airplane.

    @Avenger

    Can you point out where I have indicated that I wouldn’t be scared if I was sitting next to a known ebola patient? I mean, I feel like you’re not even trying anymore.

    @flown

    I’m sorry…97% http://climate.nasa.gov/scientific-consensus/

    “The scientific method doesn’t scrub trough all available data until they find data to support their hypothesis while ignoring and burying “inconvenient” data that does not.”

    You got a source for that? You know that 97% of climate scientists are in a conspiracy to lie and deceive the public…just cause.

    @ricckky

    “who says it’s not as contagious as the flu”

    The people who study infectious diseases. I don’t “believe” in global warming…but climate scientists are pretty clear on what the data says. Science is not something you believe in…you either understand it or you don’t…no belief required. No, I’m not you typical lib:)

    @Ken

    Even if that was true it is far more serious than ebola. Here is some info for you to read.

    @freak

    I’m not trying to sound smart I’m just trying to bring some levity to your uneducated and irrational fear. Most likely brought on by watching 24hr News.

  • [2] October 28, 2014 at 5:28pm

    Educate yourself…you have the internet. Why are you relying on pictures and men in power to inform your opinion? Read about Ebola…you have so much information at your fingertips.

    @freak

    600,000 people die each year from heart disease. Can you imagine how cold a winter Minnesota would have if the population of Minneapolis disappeared each year?

    Yet you are worried about a virus that is far less contagious than the flu or measles.

    Well hopefully his position is the same as 99% of climate scientists…considering they are the ones studying it and finding the data..

    I know it’s basic but you seem to have some basic misconceptions.

    J…here I created an email account just for you :) Ask away…. Lucretiuschrist@gmail.com.

    I was a Christian for 25 years…my family is still very devout. You don’t realize how much you are surrounded by the talk of the supernatural/god until you step outside the box. It is everywhere. I don’t wear my non-belief on my sleeve out in the real world like I do here. That doesn’t mean I falter on my principles, if asked directly I will tell the truth. But I am very much a product of my surroundings. Call me weak…I might agree with you but I like to think that I’m not Since becoming an aware atheist I have heard co-workers, family, friends, and others speak of the supernatural and their disdain for people like me. Like I said…it is something you won’t understand unless you are outside of the box…and I don’t mean that disrespectfully only as a matter of analogy.

    Again, all I need is evidence that the second horse will win or is going to win. Until then I will keep betting on the one that has…every single time up to this point in history.

  • [1] October 24, 2014 at 5:56pm

    “I am puzzled by some of the ‘non-believer’s’ disdain for what passes for supernatural.”

    I don’t have disdain for what passes for the supernatural…I just don’t have any evidence for it. Do you have disdain in “believers” of Hinduism?

    “There is a lot of the natural realm that is not understood that can (and perhaps should be) be considered supernatural as it seems to go above the normal or accepted understanding of how things work.”

    Why? If one horse has won a race a billion times and another has lost a billion times…why would you place a bet on the second horse? Because you really really like that horse?

    “There is a lot for instance in the study of particle interactions (I don’t remember the actual name for some of this) that seems to defy reality.”

    Whose reality? Humans, right? We are but an organism “on a mote of dust suspended by a sunbeam”. Before the scientific method, before we were able to successfully distinguish between our wants and intuition…volcanoes and electricity defied our reality.

    I am willing to enter into a conversation…that is why I come here. I like to see both arguments and test mine against my peers.

  • [18] October 24, 2014 at 12:59pm

    Did you have a point, other than making mine?

  • [3] October 24, 2014 at 10:55am

    “And it should be pointed out nobody was forced to take part”

    Yeah because teenage boys in a team environment being led by adult authority figures are always so easily able to stand up for themselves. What planet do you live on?
