lol


How could you fathom math, becoming radio, becoming black-and-white TV, becoming color, becoming computers... so fast‽ But, it took thousands upon thousands of years none of us will ever live-[why we haven't changed anything from "learning" history] to create the lard on your cake.

Can't teach new humans new tricks, because their parents haven't learned them yet! 🤣

Funny, I was chiming in to throw another random blurt: 'Yous biased-processors, we!'

As we all are, but hypocrites too. Just not as dumb to think that we should have the death penalty on Earth when we don't think people should kill? Idiots or worse yet vote for them! The only reason you allow it is because they fed you to let them( electoral college &c)!

Education at two is the universal problem!

People teaching people will teach us anything. Us tching ourselves will never happen... 🤔

On the seventh day ... he rested. (v.2)

Even God gets tired sometimes.

Does God work on the Sabbath?
First time I ever posted a quote from the Bible, er, I think ?

I am a complete atheist
The most corrupt countries are the most religious. We have just had a royal commission into sexual abuse and they were all religious people. Catholics, THe Salvation army etc
The least corrupt countries are NZ and the nordic places.
I went to a presbyterian and teachers were paedophiles. If had kids I wouldn't send them to a religious school.


Here is a nice atheist forum

Convinced Friend (Quaker). I believe that Jesus meant what he said about "love your enemy," which is why I find such things as participating in militaries to be morally indefensible.

Luke 14:26 New International Version (NIV)

26 “If anyone comes to me and does not hate father and mother, wife and children, brothers and sisters—yes, even their own life—such a person cannot be my disciple.

Perhaps you could enlighten us by explaining which religion the Communist Party of China is secretly practising. Or do you not consider their methods corrupt?

Not that I support stereotyping entire nations, unless earth.

It's nice to see that China still officially* has freedom of belief for the country as whole. Its ruling Party is officially atheist (and requires its members to be), and is plagued with corruption, hence my questions. China itself is perceived to be more corrupt than any of the countries mentioned by nigelc.


*How much freedom of belief the Chinese actually have is a matter of some debate.

My pitch is, we're all morons!

Believing in whatever morons got us to( LOOK AT THE WORLD THROUGH EVERYONE ELSE'S cocky eyed dream$) why would religion be any different... WE!

Relarn!!!

Morons are morons because they can't and can believe what they're born into isn't true so we're fu-ucking evolving!


But; morons txt,,, morons don't listen... ie on me.

It's fun to think in black and white but we're all dictators to our own children?
