I wasn't aware this was a buffet...

Your buffet sucks. Only two items on the menu?

Reasonable.

From my perspective, you have no morality, save what someone else made up in their head. Are you implying that that is better?

There are many Atheists with a clear moral philosophy, and Christians with none...

Well, it seems to me that killing an unborn child is better than killing a fully grown one for gluttony and drunkenness.

So what you're saying is we're free to make progress?

Does it? Do you really believe that?

Ah, what is the motive of Atheists? You might just have to ask a particular person and find out what his response is.

Yes, because Atheists have this book, which all follow, and... shit, wait, let me start over.

Clearly you have struck upon why every Atheist in the world has killed themselves in despair.

Certainly no more than Christians toss down the toilet every Sunday.

A fission reactor that never produced any energy...? So what dumbass is responsible for that? We've had very functional fission reactors for a long time.

Right, the expected life span going up about 15 years over the last 60 is just... um... fuck, what are you attributing that to, now?

Are you talking about the Fisher space pen, which was developed independently from NASA at the sole expense of a private firm, or are you referring to successfully landing on the moon, or possibly, say, the GPS system, landing a rover on Mars? Which of those things are not working?

I'm sorry, but how exactly do you find fraud in faith?

Freedom of speech is the basic freedom of humanity. When you've lost that, you've lost everything.
