Christopher Hitchens? Atheists are stupid aren't they. I mean what a bunch of silly billys for not wanting to believe or put trust in an
Science is legend for putting trust in theories. I wouldn't try to beat me with that
Oh, and by the way, I didn't even imply atheists are one thing or another, I'm sure they are plagued with all levels of intelligence, or lack there

What a bunch of idiots for wanting to discuss more profound human thoughts such as discussion of scientific theory, which can help progress and

We try to live like there are absolute truths, we live like we do, but, there are none. Other than math, and music, but even that is debatable. And
for another thread!
As for you stating you're not a sinner?
Interesting thought that. If you start a thread on it let me know, I'd like to read it.
