Re: Convinced yet?

I rest my case. How about if instead of resting your case you justify your position? What did I say that wasn't factual? You have this tendency to drop a snarky one liner and retire, as if your point was self evidently correct. It wasn't. You can get away with that here on your home court, but that...

Re: Convinced yet?

Wanna know why I support Trump? This is why: https://uk.news.yahoo.com/hillary-clinton-says-trump-knows-124019380.html . No. No way. That's just too hypocritical. Barack Obama won both the popular vote and the electoral college twice. He got no help from any foreign powers. Republicans never accept...

Re: Convinced yet?

Wanna know why I support Trump? It's not because I like him, in fact I don't. And it's not because I agree with his antics or methods, I don't. It's not even because I agree with some of his policies, I do but that's an incidental byproduct of my conservatism. This is why: https://uk.news.yahoo.com/...

Re: Convinced yet?

Kinda looks like the President tried to extort the Ukrainians into opening an investigation of the Biden family by threatening to withhold military aid at a time when Ukraine (supposedly an ally) is under severe military pressure from Russia (supposedly a hostile power). So there's some corruption ...

Re: Atheist question

My first comment on Meyer was on his clip https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7c9PaZzsqEg, which you referred to, #179. Between 4:33 and 6:08 he discusses the possibilities of proteins and says that the chance to find a new protein is one in 10^70 and the age of the earth isn’t long enough for generati...

Re: Have we crossed the line yet?

Enough stirring up trouble, Hortense. Ed knows he made a mistake in coming back under another name. And he's admitted it. Also, let's not be so thin-skinned that we can't tolerate views that oppose our own. While Ed can be a bit edgy and cranky with certain people, at times - he's usually pretty co...

Re: Is impeachment and removal from office possible? What would it take?

I know Canada isn't some utopia, but at least you guys seem to have an ounce of sense. Why don't you just move there then? Maybe you will in 2020, we'll see. All I want to say is THANK YOU LORD the founding fathers saw to it that the so-called 'majority' states don't usurp the will of the smaller o...

Re: Have we crossed the line yet?

Maligning liberals I could understand, conservatives I could tolerate, chefs I would encourage. But maligning yoyo enthusiasts? That's just crossing the line.

Surprising Kenny didn't chime in on this - as many atheists assume that Christians believe in Christ and God on faith alone!

Not surprising at all.

Re: Many Atheists DO Believe in the Supernatural

Where exactly did I say if you're not logical you can't be a Christian? When you disagreed with me. A person may not employ logic to be (or become) Christian Great! Sounds like we agree. That's the only point I was trying to make. No kenny, you don't get to chop off my entire response to your point...

Re: Many Atheists DO Believe in the Supernatural

Yes; logic, reason, or proof are not necessary to be an atheist, ... I mean, seriously, what else is there to discuss with Kenny? He effectively slammed the door shut on any form of rational discourse. I commend you Kenny, at least you've finally taken up the only logical (pardon the insult) positi...

Re: Canada Goes After Online Content

Personally, I think Canada does it better than we do. We in the States are so proud of our unfettered right to speak our minds that we've never taken the time to really think about whether or not that's entirely a good thing. Is allowing neo-Nazis to publicly preach hate and spread their poison on ...

Basically my replies were: *How do you know there can only be one eternal thing, *How do you know that which is eternal cannot be material I know because you have proven time and again that you have no concept of what logic is even though you pretend otherwise.
