    Tell me which is the greater oppression:
    1. Saying you should not do it and if you do, I won’t be a party to it or recognized it.

    2. Forcing everyone, whether they agree or not, to participate in your lifestyle choices and destroying their livelihoods if they disagree.

    Christians regularly employ 1 above and that torques you off, I get it. I don’t know why you value our approval so much when you could just go your own way and live as you choose.

    The LGBT crowd uses 2, though, which utterly destroys freedom. We don’t get to go our own way and live as we choose because you hunt us down and force us to choose between our livelihoods and our convictions.

    Here, let me fix your statement for you:

    “Show us evidence, realizing that every bit you do come up with we will find a convenient excuse to reject out-of-hand.”

    I can’t prove the sky is blue if you insist on seeing it as green, ej.

    Atheism is a religious point of view. Saying there is no god has the same amount of evidence and requires the sane amount of faith as saying there is one, be he Vishnu or any other one.

    It’s very clever what you did there, don’t think I didn’t notice. You advocated that the scientific THEORIES that atheists put forth are “truth” while all of religion is merely “belief” and in direct contradiction to that truth. You make a fine evangelist for your religion.

    Atheism makes for a poor religion. It’s popular today and it has been in times past, but it has no staying power as it is self-defeating. It’s hard to maintain traction when you claim that the ultimate answer is unknowable by science, yet you have discovered it through science. Also, no one wants to hear that past oppression against you is a legitimate excuse for current oppression of others.

    If it isn’t signed by Iran, it doesn’t matter what the US Senate does. No future president will be beholden to it.

    So that’s the good news, I guess.

    South Korea and Japan also have a lot and common – especially an enemy in North Korea and a not very friendly China.

    Both Japan and South Korea should have enrichment programs, though. The only strength in East Asia that gives a damn about them is the United States and we are becoming decidedly less reliable.

    South Korea should have an enrichment program. The North is not “developing” a nuclear weapons program, it has developED one. It has nuclear weapons.

    South Korea, meanwhile, is a thriving and free republic and a great friend of the USA – one of only two in the region. We should be encouraging South Korea to defend itself – that is the message to send not only North Korea, but also China.

    Should the only two nuclear powers (3 of you count Russia) in East Asia be hostile to the United States?

    How is this controversial? If there’s a preacher of ANY religion that’s teaching that any other religion but his is the correct path, either that preacher or his entire religion is worthless.

    It seems we are supposed to care less about abuses of Constitutional authority if the abuses come from people more sympathetic to our causes. It’s the Republican way.

    As a private company, AVIS should be able to deny service to anyone they don’t want to do business with. As private individuals, we should let them know how we feel about their discriminatory policies.

    It’s racism. A minority spider species moved in down the block, so they are all fleeing to a new neighborhood.

    “The Palestinian Authority called her death ‘a brutal war crime against humanity and childhood.’”

    So killing a knife-wielding psychopath in the act of murder is a war crime, now? Can we get a comment on this from CAIR and/or the Boycott Israel crowd?

    What? AMA’s were last night and I missed them? Shucks.

    Those poor rich and famous celebrities only have millions of adoring fans so I can definitely see the reason for all of these awards ceremonies so they can finally get some validation for their lives.

    Oh, OK. Let’s just throw it all away, then. We’ll just protest when someone violates our rights, but freely violate the rights of others.

    Such a tracking system has the same Constitutional problems as the NSA wiretapping scheme. It also shares another problem with our so-called security in the USA.

    Data is worthless if you can’t effectively parse and analyze it. The mountain of worthless data captured by these schemes hides the data we actually need to find.

    So you are an agnostic atheist. That’s fine. Richard Dawkins might take issue with it, but I won’t.

    Our very existence is circumstantial evidence in favor of God’s existence. Nothing can exist except that which is made. That which is made has a maker. Christians contend the universe’s maker is God. That is not evidence that God is as described in the Bible, but it is evidence of His existence.

    Gnosticism is a claim of knowledge. Agnostic is “a” (without) + “gnostic” (knowledge) – meaning there is a lack of sufficient knowledge (or faith) to warrant a statement of specific belief.

    Atheism is a specific claim about the presence, or lack of presence of an intelligent creator that still speaks to us. Almost no belief system requires absolute faith – certainly Christianity does not. If it did, God would have provided it so that we work on proven fact instead of faith

    There is evidence blinky. Plenty of it, all circumstantial. For you to say there is no evidence requires faith in a belief system on your part.

    Agnosticism is not a specific belief system. It’s a lack of one. One can be agnostic and any other denoting a lack of faith in that one as the correct path. Atheism is a belief system. It is not compatible with other belief systems. It may or may not be compatible with agnosticism.

    A lack of belief is called agnosticism. Atheism is a belief there is no god or, at least, not one who speaks to us or we have to answer to. It is a belief system.

    You do realize the metal that makes up university leadership these days, right?

    A true “gift of love” is not something that can be contained in a box wrapped up under a Christmas tree.
