BTW, I have my limits.

You take a poke at someone to see what he's made of, then you move on...

Good job.

Cityboy:

Look at someone like Mohican, he states his beliefs in a matter of fact way and doesn't feel the need to follow it up by putting other people down. This indicates he's a man who's content with his beliefs and doesn't have anything to prove.

On the other hand, you're compelled to frame everything up from the negative; fighting some imaginary battle in a way that says anyone who doesn't believe exactly what you believe is somehow deficient.

And you can't even begin to see the irony in your comments about fanaticism and bigotry etc.

Even though you don't realize it, all of this, including your aggressive demeanor, speaks volumes about you and your mindset.

Anyone who is reasonably astute will come to their own conclusions. I don't have to spell it out.

I actually feel somewhat embarrassed for you.

Good luck, indeed.

Einstein also said, "The word god is for me nothing more than the expression and product of human weaknesses, the Bible a collection of honorable, but still primitive legends which are nevertheless pretty childish. No interpretation no matter how subtle can change this."

So there's that.

I donít think he said that. That was Homer Simpson. The episode where he took the smart pills.

No, I've seen that episode 87 times and I've memorized every line of dialog. It's not in there.

Okay... I made that up.

Isnít it amazing how CBís threads get so much traction, though?

He must have a large penis. Thatís all I can think.

A very large penis. I can see him hugging it and licking it while thinking up the next outrageous thing to say, then propping it in one elbow while he reaches around and types his response.

He thinks it makes him a god, and no one can fuck with him.

Well, most women are down for a big penis to a point. But after that itís just too much work to make it work. So... maybe heís lonely?

EFFORT, my friend. Just might penetrate your closed mind. who knows? You may inch closer to truth.
I am back, briefly. I do not care if you're are atheist or spiritual or adhere to a particular organised religion; I do not have a dog in the fight. The debate was about whether physics on the quantum scale is random or not, I do not know why it had to be turned into a debate on religion? If it did, why quote Einstein who was incorrect on the subject?

And since he's from and in the city, Farmers Only.com is not an option....
