"Nothing peeves me off more, than the 'nature' argument.
With technology as advanced as it is, countless aspects of the way we live to day, have strayed from the workings of 'nature'- birth control, plastic surgery, processed…"
"I am most defineately not 100 percent sure that there is no God.
However, there is very little (if anything at all), that I AM one hundred percent sure of.

"So a LOT of different circumstances have been brought up since I last read this thread.
Of course it is illogical to take offence to the act alone, but I think it's the ideas surrounding the act that one has right to take offence to. And of…"
"I LOL'd. Because I completely agree. This has always been a big thing for me.
I do like to display common courtesy, and I do appreciate it when people show the same to me.
However, I don't feel that women need to be paid any…"

Everything is great. Thanks for asking.
The weather is -10F windchill (-23C) with 3 inches of snow. That is the weather we want for the holiday season.
From what I have read I would like the Aussie people. I have this minor fascination in what it is like to live in Australia.
What's happening in your world.
"Living forever is not what it's cracked up to be. I'm not sad, but I do get tired more often. Imagine how sad and tired you would be after a few hundred years of singing praises and hosannas with God. Maybe it wouldn't even take that…"
"I agree with Two Cult Survivor. The theist already knows that he is correct, and he has the evidence, the Holy Bible - the "word of God." The theist puts it on YOU to show evidence that God is non-existent and he walks around talking to…"
"@blue pashima. The woman being interviewed by Blitzer has a TON of class!
@Randall. I tend to agree about rednecks. Personal bias on my part, but the sound of Country and Western music is, to me, the equivalent of a knife scraping against a…"
