"It would be, I believe, mostly true to state that most mass murderers are also atheists."
You have zero reason with anybody, Shawsy.
You still are somewhere else and not in this conversation
Yes, when viewed as a whole, the UK does fare better. But when you compare just metropolitan areas (ie cities to cities) that gap quickly narrows, and in some cases, inverts.
Sure, I agree with pretty much everything you wrote there. Commonness is indeed not rightness. I mention "common beliefs" because the argument in this OP is that religious experiences should be disregarded because such experiences lead to beliefs that are inconsistent amongst individuals, cultures, etc. My point is that there are beliefs associated with these experiences that are fairly common/consistent.
Everyone not in politics but we don't matter.
On that side of the world perhaps, don't include us all under another poisoned blanket.
It is all over Disqus. Islam is constantly berated and criticized as an Abrahamic religion. Any claims about God made by Buddhists are also criticized.
soon not our problem anymore. ai will do this job.
It is kifey to begin with. When milk turns sour it is bad, when cream turns sour it is bad. But when sour cream turns sour... :-)
That is not possible legally, of course.
I didn't do it.
Well, I'm from group (A) and you should tell us the number of users for that Survey. Also, this is not scientific at all, so don't deceive yourself by this result.
I'm not going to get in a pissing match with you.

Our traditional allies are avoiding eye contact with us, but the A List of Shitholes love us.
When did I ever even HINT at the idea that I don?t want y?all around here. Common... without the atheists we?d have no fools for entertainment. If I wanted a sounding board, I?d chat over on the Holy Catholic Apostolic channel. But my beliefs are solid enough that I don?t require a sounding board to confirm them; thus I?m called here to evangelize. Now I?ve been here long enough that 1. I?m well aware of ALL of the rules, and your copy and paste was entirely unnecessary, especially as I welcome you here with open arms. And 2. I?m aware I probably won?t convince any of the fools to believe the Truth and a bulk of my evangelizing is wasted pearls on swine. BUT on the slight chance that an open-minded atheist reads what I contribute and sees the ?evidence? of Truth and explores the existence of God father, my work becomes well worth it. Now if my words don?t inspire any fools to join the ranks of the royalty, then at least I still had fun laughing at your clownery. So I whole-heartedly agree with the welcome message to ALL beliefs, including atheists and agnostics.
Ok listen... I am nothing like Hitler. Some people identify as solely catholic or solely christian.
Have you any material evidence? If not, you'll find that what I have a problem with is not the object of your fantasies, but with the fantasies themselves.
This is the first day in history that I have not complained about Monday, bc I logged in like:
"Fan fiction" [sic] and hallucination are unnecessary to explain the accounts of Jesus' resurrection. Quite simply, resurrection narratives were inspired by the fear of torture and death. While Jesus was alive, he was the only glue holding his disparate group of followers together. When he died, that threatened to make the group come unglued. That would not only have meant the end of mutual support networks for women in the group like Mary Magdalene and Jesus' mother Mary, it would also have raised the prospect of a traitor ratting out the names of Christians to Pilate.
I have never heard of allowing the blind to own guns, excuse me - GUNS, but I have heard of regulations on those with mental issues and criminal records. Still doesn't sound like "anyone."
Actually that's a good point. There wouldn't be in true communism
Bargain compared to average divorce.
"She pointed out she has Native American ancestry" = Claiming Native American roots.
I hope you have seen an MD to rule out/address any organic issues that maybe impacting your well being. You are worth taking the best care of yourself.
