    I retired a bit early (57) and still loving it after 12 years. I have always stayed busy. We bought a retirement toy (camper/boat) which kept us busy a lot of the time for 10 years. Then I tore my rotator cuff a couple years back and made a decision to sell it. Still keep pretty busy with yard and gardens (almost 4 acres), and do a lot of pro b…[Read more]

    Teaching moment-
    1. VP Mike Pence is in that same category. He just lies about it publically.
    2. I agree that Dawkins can be a jerk. However, there are many evangelicals that fit those adjectives as well. And many radical Muslims that would love to literally kill you and me.

    Ever heard of the Westboro Baptist Church? And I have personally had conversations that start with “you have no morals”, or “you will be going straight to hell”. There is certainly enough arrogance and bad manners on both sides to go around.

    • Teaching Moment:

      1. Westboro Baptist Church is a small group of insane individuals who should be locked up. They are so small in percentage as to be insignificant.

      2. Atheists are consistently hateful, consistently condescending, consistently arrogant and pretentious. They take their cue from haters like Richard Dawkins, a professor.

    First of all, thanks for the insults (lol). When someone has no real argument or simply do not know how to debate, they default to insults.

    Secondly, I made no claims here about anything. I simply joined the thread but will respond to your point.

    Science and religion can be compatible, depending on the believer’s Christian denomination (and…[Read more]

    • I was talking about atheists in general, not you specifically. I thought I made that clear. Atheists are thoroughly hateful, condescending, and vulgar. Not exactly the qualities one would expect from those pretending to be so very rational and enlightened.

  • As an atheist, I have to say no. Since most atheists I know, self included, do not believe in any unverifiable supernatural realm, believing in ghosts is a bit inconsistent. I thought I saw a ghost in the window of an old “haunted house” as a kid, but was scared and expecting to see a ghost. It was likely just a reflection on the glass. There…[Read more]

    • It is the height of dishonesty to claim that science and Christianity are mutually exclusive. It is likewise the height of dishonesty, and there is no shortage of dishonesty of course among atheists, for them to claim intellectual supremacy, and that BECAUSE of their (claimed) universal supremacy, all of their arrogant pronouncements are correct,…[Read more]
