Seriously, what's behind this "my species sucks" and "my country sucks" perspective? I would really like to understand.

If you're asking me, you're asking the wrong guy. I never said either of those things. Didn't imply it either.

Me too.  I'm "up with people".  And I think the U.S. is fantastic (warts and all).  I'm just pissed at the Administration which is raping it.


Other than that...

Cool. Some people do seem to feel that way and I would like to understand why.

Question: Is there such a thing as an evangelical Atheist?

Good sense is, of all things among men, the most equally distributed; for everyone thinks himself so abundantly provided with it, that those even who are the most difficult to satisfy in everything else, do not usually desire a larger measure of this quality than they already possess.

How about a "born again" atheist?  Someone who was, then wasn't and now is again...

Oh yeah, I've met those. And these conversations are turning me into one.

Dan you willingly participate...  what's the deal baby?

I'd be happy if someone stopped this thread.  Why do I keep posting?  It's like climbing Mt. Everest - because I know it's there...  It's a bit compulsive actually.

I'm wondering why this guy is hurt so badly while in his "robe".  And it is terribly ironic, as you know of course, that the people he hates are trying to save his life.

I must confess, if and when he got better, I'd want to play "peek a boo" with him and his hood.  "Now I don't know who you are.  Now I do! Now I don't know who you are.  Now I do!" Hours of fun.

Re: KKK dipshit on gurney; I think it would be OK if they didn't try their hardest to save him.

I remember seeing it written that if there was no god, we would be our own god, and while that would be nice, it is unrealistic from my point of view.

I think the implication is that it takes a big ego to be one's onw god, but I would think that the difference is simple:

Deists believe that we were created in an image of a perfect being.

Atheists believe that we were spawned in a pool of sludge, and crawled out of it, as we evolved from stupid, violent biological blobs.

I think that the bigger ego is obvious.

You're a "born again" atheist?  Wow! When were you a Christian or member of another well-known, organized religion?  And what now has turned you to atheism?  If you tell me what it is, I'll send you a "Get Well Soon" card.
