You 2 are pretty much my new favorite people on this website.
Or a person hugging their legs to their chest
You, sir Astronaut_Will, would NOT be sorted into Ravenclaw
Key words, in your opinion. Newspapers are supposed to record current news. New stuff happening with science is news. Fake made up stuff no one believes in but for some reason thinks is fun isn't news.
hey! hey Nack! THIS POST IS IRONIC
What a profound thought. It's never crossed my mind before but that one's gonna stick with me.
THERE IS NO GOD!!!!!
Gay people SHOULD have rights, and it's because of conservatives and christians that they 'don't'. Didn't your Jesus say to love everyone?
He could still be smart.
I live in the Buckle of the Bible Belt. I'm a healthy Democrat atheist.
This is actually such a good analogy. When you have the TV on, you're forced to mentally ingest a small, limited window of the world, contained in a carefully planned and edited program. There may be one type of show on now, but next year, some shows will be cancelled and new ones will appear, and 10 years from now, TV will be unrecognizable from what it is now, although somewhat similar. A person from one country will have a limited number of channels to choose from, a person from another country will watch another set of channels, and the best country may be able to broadcast their channels throughout other countries if they're influential enough and if the market is right.
Meanwhile, once you turn the television off, the entire world becomes your oyster. It may not be as immediately rewarding, but there is so much more to do and explore and get done. A TV show is carefully planned and edited, but the real world will seem much more random and meaningless. And simply not watching TV doesn't say much about you as a person. While everybody watching a particular TV episode is viewing the exact same material, people who turn the TV off are off doing all kinds of different things.
Ignorant? No. My reasons for not believing in God is lack of proof. It is not the duty of atheists to disprove God. It is the duty of the believers to provide evidence of God. In all my time on this Earth, I have not seen a single ounce of evidence suggesting the existence of any god, Christian or otherwise. Furthermore, there are many passages within the Bible that are blatantly wrong scientifically. If your God created the properties of atoms and elementary particles, then His book would not include these errors.
