Remember, folks - just because someone says they're a homeopathic remedy salesman does not mean their products actually use PROPER homoeopathic methods. Don't get taken by con artists selling cheap, knock-off homeopathic remedies when the real thing is just a website away!

Stick with the name you trust - Carrier brand Homeopathic Mythicism & Atheist Supplements! Order yours today!

Crude,

How bigoted of you to engage in such blatant homeopathiphobia!

You need to sit down and shut up! Modern, enlightened thought has moved far past your Dark Ages superstition. You are dust under the chariot wheels of Progress!!!

That's right. And we know that classic theisim the correct religious persuasion. Fundamentalism and theistic personalism are just ridiculous.

Dang! Acharya S thinks this fellow's theory is too far out!

There are moments that one feels like Gandalf, when he calls the forces of the West to stand fast as Mordor implodes.

One is a cashew and the other is an almond, and together they make up the Mythicist(TM) brand bowl of nuts.

Nothing to do with this topic, but HERE is yet another nail in the coffin of the faux "war between science and religion".

When will the atheists ever learn? Most of the really good scientists have been believers. The so-called antipathy toward science by Christians is all in their heads!

But it seems that no amount of proof will ever dissuade them from endlessly repeating the discredited meme. And I thought they were supposed to be all about the "evidence"?

The above proves that even a clock that has stopped is right twice a day.

additional:

It goes to show that Skept A Priori sees all Theism as fundamentally ridiculous.

Interesting insight into his psychology.

Bob, when did you ever hear someone say that there are no religious scientists? Just curious. And why is it that every time I speak of evidence, I'm accused of scientism?

Because you believe only empirical evidence counts as evidence & not philosophical evidence.

So by definition you support Scientism/Positivism.

Good grief man on the other thread you had the balls to ask "How do you know god always existed? How do you know the universe didn't?".

Martin already explained the first way to you before.
