    Cop looking at her like she is crazy, a lot of drama in this one

    The things we do to mess up our lives, never went as far as this person.

    My advice to this man is to go into the goat business.

    yes, finally the truth, diamonds are a horrible investment unless you are deep in that industry. It’s too controlled for an outside to make a buck. I don’t even think the idea to use diamonds in wedding bands is all that new.

    Wife and I have gold bands, no diamonds. I do appreciate the beauty of a diamond ring but we always had other priorities (like eating!)/

    Hey, as long as we know from where your coming from.

    When you burn books, do you light from the top or the bottom? Do you prefer to wear a snazzy uniform when your burning books? I really want to know because people who think like you are a complete mystery to me.

    I think his Christianity allowed him to see the good works George Bush did in Africa. A lot of liberal never gave Bush credit for anything.

    Put it a different way, if a teacher shows a leftwing movie in class I do not think he should be fired for it. I am for all speech, I want to know what other people think.

    If a teacher prays in class I do not want him to be fired for it, he has a right to his own ideas.

    If a teacher is an atheist, I don’t want him fired for it.

    I will make certain conclusions about people based on their speech, thats my right too.

    Prayer is speech, all speech is protected (or should be).

    This is state censorship, pure and simple.

  • [4] September 17, 2014 at 10:45am

    sooo, you would also want to prevent a public showing in a school of ‘An Inconvenient Truth’ as it is proselytizing a political view people are against? My guess is you value certain speech and do not value other speech.

    My view is simple, prayer is speech, all speech is protected, period.

    Your view is clear, speech you don’t like should be banned, using the state to stamp it out. You would make a good Nazi.

    sorry verycobaltviolet, preventing people from praying is fascism, it’s the same as preventing people from reading banned books.

    If the software is really all that, Apple could buy the rights to it. Its not as if Apple has no cash to work with.

    Or they could sell it for $4.99 and if everyone who has a iPhone buys it they will be well compensated.

    Judeophobia, its an actual disease

    you are so much better off with a black cup of coffee, a glass of wine or a beer. Coke is pretty bad on your insulin levels and is full of empty calories.

    There is a good documentary on Netflix about it, very much like Animal Farm when the pigs morphed into the farmer at the end, the original promoters have made some good money on it.

    Thousands of poorly educated people attend, its exactly what you think it would be. The was a woman sculptor who was very talented and they did pick up after themselves.

    As much as I dislike the demonstration of paganism and pachouli, Im always in for burning stuff in the desert.

    Thanks for the correction on the carib island residents travis, I do appreciate it.

    I think you could create a moral policy based on societal needs but I think it really falls short for the individual. If you can get away with stealing why not do it? Does it make you a good person if you treat others as yourself or does the word ‘good’ have any meaning when applied to people?

    When I was an atheist I never intentionally hurt anyone or stole things. I at least had no illusion that I had any logical reason to be a ‘good’ person. I didn’t think then and I don’t think now that a truly moral code can exists (as we think of morals) in an atheistic moral framework, I think atheism is amoral in the sense that with it only my welfare is relevant to me. Another persons relevance is only important because it effects my existence in some way. Therefore, it is logical to take an old mans money if I can get away with it. You will notice when I first brought up that scenario, no atheist has come up with a reason not to steal.

    I really like this story, to taking ownership of your life like this is inspiring.

    sorry guys, not at all convincing.

    You say if blink steals the coins from someone who will never miss them, never know it happens effects society in some way. Society will never know about it. Society is not effected, period, end of story.

    You have been raised to want a society were people do not steal and kill, consider the possibility that you have been brainwashed. Isn’t it possible that you have been told never to steal since you were young is the reason you now think its wrong? Maybe you have no philosophical reason against stealing but you feel its wrong.

    what if you lived in a Norse society were stealing and killing were common and even celebrated, are you saying blink would feel differently and express strangely christian notions of not stealing and not killing? I highly doubt it. The Norse society did very well for centuries killing the weaker, enslaving and killing rivals.

    Just accept you live like christians, expect others to live as christians but think the bible is bunk. You don’t have to live a consistent life to be happy and thats all there is to life for an atheist.

  • [1] September 15, 2014 at 12:12pm

    blink, nearly everything you believe in is untrue. The Christian religion made society moral. For example, how many hospitals built solely to heal the poor were created before Christianity flourished (zero).

    Blink you live next to a old man with severe alzheimer’s and is dying of cancer. He has relatives you do not like, and some gold coins you can easily steal. What non-faith argument can you give to not steal the coins?

  • September 15, 2014 at 11:51am

    I’ll tell you what you are, you are an American atheist. That is a person who lives by christian morals, expect others to live as christians but prefer to not believe in God.

    If you were born 300 years ago on the carib islands you would be a happy cannibal. Theres no logic that determines what you believe is right and wrong. Just accept it and be happy you were born in the united states.

    Certainly, thats why there is a huge number of Chinese christians.
