Tell of of this to 14 million dead babies. Oh wait. You can't. They're dead.
Europeans do not like us. Stay out of Europe. In fact, if you do not need to leave the USA, don't.
What proof would a believer require to agree that God does not exist? What proof would an atheist require to agree that God exists? Answer to both questions – There is none. Gregg, et. al. admit that there is no proof you would accept. If you met God face to face you would have an alternate explanation. Will, et. al. admit that there is no proof you would accept. If you were presented with the scientific evidence or formulas you would have an alternate explanation. Both sides simply believe what they believe because they believe it. It is the common thread between the believers and the atheists. It is called faith. Were there any proof, it would not be faith. Interestingly, atheists claim to have no faith. They claim they have facts; completely ignoring the simple truth that there is no proof that God does or does not exist. There is evidence but there is no proof. Yet watching the two sides tilt at windmills is somehow morbidly fascinating.

"A woman cannot be a priest anymore than a man could be a mother. Our genders are equal in dignity be we are not the same. The Truth is not up for grabs it is the same today as it was yesterday and the same it will be tomorrow." Chapter and verse???

“Racial profiling is a type of pre-judging. Someone who deserves to have the benefit of the doubt, like any other person, is not given that benefit of the doubt simply because they are of a certain race. Mark Twain used say "There are lies, damned lies, and statistics." Using statistics in this way is wrong..” So the fact that certain ethnic groups are disproportionately represented in prison populations is of no consequence? And should a person of one of these certain ethnic groups be on one side of the street would you have no thought of crossing to the other side? Do you drive down Troost after dark? Did you shop at Bannister Mall? “…and here's why: I can concoct any group that I want, mentally lump everyone in the group together, and then I will eventually attribute bad traits of the majority to each and every person in the group. Innocent people become responsible for the bad actions of others in some imaginary group.” Could you create a concrete example? “That's wrong. That's pre-judging. It violates God's JUSTICE.” And we know there is no pre-judging in scripture; all ethnic groups were treated equally and with respect.

"Traplock, I can’t forget you, you posted late that evening, Sept 30. Your insight on body hygiene is priceless. Your knowledge should be in a grooming book. I bet your family is proud of you. Thanks for your advice, if it was aimed at me. If not, I’m sure it will be valuable to others. Keep up the good work." "When I said, in the past, I don’t believe jesus was a real man, it is only my opinion, not every atheist’s opinion. Jesus, Adam, get a life, get a brain. I mean that in the nicest way. I saw a rock on the way home and thought about you." Can someone tell us how this promotes "Peace For The Sake Of Goodness???" Cole is apparently interested in neither peace nor goodness. It appears that he is only interested in insults and confrontation.

There are things that one cannot change - skin color - height and these cannot be used to evaluate or judge a person. While you have the right to have long hair or not shave, be aware that people WILL judge you based on these things. If you choose to wear things or practice hygiene that others find offensive, you may be treated differently. And certainly I can judge you by how you choose to dress, bathe, shave, wear your hair, behave etc. because you choose to make that statement.

adamh, "Peace For The Sake Of Goodness" Cole has repeatedly demonstrated that he is an angry, lonely old man with few friends, most like icky I imagine. He is no more interested in peace or goodness that I am interested in rantings of Kanye West.

Cole wrote - "Tag team member, a theist said, “Will, Followed the link and that is a bit scary. It's on their website as 3 and iggy claims 20. What gives?” "What gives? Your god gives us our divine plan. We atheist are just following it. Not just Iggy claims it, but I know it to be a fact, like evolution. Join us sometime and see for yourself." If we show up, would this be the kind of well reasoned 'brain tasting' we would experience? Again Cole I cannot fully express my contempt for you and iggy because Bill won't post it, but suffice it to say that NO rational person would attend to be abused by you two. Oh and what did you think of the letter I emailed you??

Cole wrote - "And I thought I was a skeptic. I never knew we would be asked not to come back. You are such a conniving individual. You think this way. Well, seeing how your god is, I suppose it doesn’t surprise me after all." At least I think Cole wrote it - maybe he's quoting someone else. If Cole wrote this, what does it say? Red Biddy wrote - "God is a conservative, but his Son is a liberal." Not exactly.

Cole, you are a trip. Thanks for confirming my suspicions.

JD, My apologies. I assumed that you and Cole and Iggy are all the same person or at least post for each other. The only thing I know is that I post as a.theist and no one else. Who is really who here is kinda up for grabs. I am wondering why when I ask Iggy a question, Cole responds. I also wonder how giving the time and location further in advance would allow Christians to disrupt the study any more than giving it when Cole/Iggy do. All Christians need to do to disrupt it, is to show up. Oh, Cole/Iggy don't what them to show up! Christians, You will not win a deabte with Iggy/Cole - they are not interested in the truth; they want to insult, belittle and intimidate Christians. I have no doubt that a spirited with them debate could erupt in violence. Not worth the risk.

Iggy/Cole/JD, Why would I waste the time it requires to attend one of your 'bible studies'? What's in it for me? The ten minutes I spend here on the days I post is more time than I should waste.

Anybody notice that Bill used th expression 'inside terrorist brains' rather than 'inside the mind of a terrorist'? Sound like anybody you know?

Cole wrote - "Because, I believe, you want to disrupt it before we all get there. Your track record shows this." Pointing out the obvious lie - I have no record as I would not waste the time it would require to disrupt your silly meeting/study.
1 reply
Iggy, All that notwithstanding, why don't you just post the address of the church a few days before the study? e.g. "The bible study will be at the First Baptist Church at 1224 Main in Harrisonville, Mo at 6:30PM Monday August 24, 2009"

Did I miss something? Cole, You have the email as promised.

Lynne/Iggy Of course he's joking. But why would he even post such tripe? Oh wait, everything he posts is tripe. Sometimes it's vicious tripe and when he's called on it, he claims he was just joking.(See your post.) Pretty sad.

Iggy wrote "Cole introduced the hypothesis of an "alien egg" laid in the brains of adamh/Will Graham. I further support it with express understanding that it is actually an "invisible alien egg" - it cannot be seen (just like the space alien who laid it) but can be observed through the actions of the "crazies" And he expects us to take him seriously?

"I never attack them or call them names. I just state facts." Cole, you post to people who've read what you've posted before. It is what it is and the readers know it. Denying it won't work. Anybody with no life have the time to scan this blog for Cole's rants?
1 reply
Cole, Post your email address and I will send you a copy of the email from Bill where he makes that very statement.

"I guess you don't mind then if I call you an arrogant, self aborbed, moron?" Be careful, according Bill, Cold will sue you for calling him a moron.
