I told you that if you couldn't understand my post (and from your response it's obvious that you don't) to go find a child to explain it to you

Quick question - why didn't you just admit you screwed up when you wrote that the world population is mostly Christian and then proceeded to post that ~ 33% of the worlds population is christian

Why not just admit it was a mistake and move on?

You did it earlier in the thread and it was fine

Why all the nonsense instead of just admitting a simple mistake


You will keep responding to me even though you've already stated, twice, that it's both pointless and a waste of your time to do so.  Yeah, that's very logical.

You are as mentally ill as you say that I am.

The only thing you are pointing out or proving by continuously responding to me in this manner, in this thread is that Beach Bum was right about illogical atheists.  LOL

damn, I only wish that was the case

I guess you must not have considered the possibility that I have a computer at my office (and I work from home most mornings)

Since you seem to forget things immediately after you read them (I'm going to give you the benefit of the doubt here)

read the bold part below and if you're still confused see if you can find a child to explain it to you

still lacking reading comprehension

try reading my last few posts very slowly and maybe you'll figure it out

Boy, you have a lot of time in your hands.  I see you are still lying at home all day while your wife goes to work and bring home the bacon.

lack of reading comprehension much?

I answered your moronic question in my last post

I will keep responding to you as long as it continues to interest and entertain me to point out the futility in trying to engage a fundie such as yourself in a conversation.  It illustrates that the point I made 7 years ago is still true today.

That's the first good point you've made in this thread

Let's do a quick review

This thread was about a group of atheist being able to leave literature in a school where Gideons were also leaving bibles

By the 2nd page the consensus was pretty much that neither group should be doing anything at a public school

The thread rambled on for a couple of more pages of the usual diversion that happens on this board and then you made the absurd claim that "the world population is mostly christian".   When challenged on this you provided a link to CIA Factbook claiming that Christians were 33% of the population
.
.
.
.
You actually provided proof that your own claim was not correct

after many back and forths with me trying to explain elementary school math you finally conceded that your statement that world population was mostly christian was probably incorrect

Again, I simply pointed out that there was no probably about it.

Then you decided to use the angle of suggesting that the data is wrong (including the data that you provided) as if that somehow helps support your original point

To the question you asked about how do I know whether the data is 100% correct the obvious answer is that it's most certainly not 100% correct.    How could it be.
Do you think we have the ability to even count the world population down to the person much less categorize them by religion?

You seem to think if we can't do that then somehow your original claim gains support by this lack of 100% accuracy.   Ignoring of course the many many different estimates that put Christian at ~ 30% give or take a few points.   Even just a simple population count of Muslim, Hindu and Buddhist countries would show that the world is not mostly Christian

So back to my claim of 7 years ago that the fundie mingsight is akin to mental illness and therefor trying to have conversation with such a person is usually pointless....well I think that has been well documented in this thread

Wow, not only are you still talking to me, but you are now writing books to me.  Why is that, Straw Man?  You are as mentally ill as you believe I am.

How do you know your sources are 100% accurate?  Why do you continue to avoid my questions?
7  Getbig Main Boards / Politics and Political Issues Board / Re: Tennessee atheists win right to distribute literature after schools give Bibles on: April 18, 2014, 09:50:58 AM
why do you keep repeating the same thing as if it some how supports the claim which you've already admitted was wrong

you need to learn when to fold

who gives a shit is Christians are only 1/3 of the population?

why don't you bump my post from 2007 again so that I can comment again on how some neuroscientists are starting to consider the fundamentalist mindset as a treatable mental illness

then you can pretend that you didn't see any of that....again... and ask me the same questions all over again



If the following is still your personal belief...

Besides, my personal belief is anyone who holds a fundamentalist belief in any religion is mentally ill (for real) which again makes for a pointless discussion

...then why are you still having a discussion with me if you believe that I have a mental illness and that having a discussion with me is pointless?  You seem just as mentally ill as you believe all theists are.

How do you know that your sources are 100% accurate?  Why do you keep avoiding my questions?

Is Obamacare A Success? We Might Not Know For A While

After months of focusing on how many people have or haven't signed up for health insurance under the Affordable Care Act, we now have a rough total (7.5 million), and everyone's keen to get to the bigger questions: How well is the law working? How many of those who signed up have paid their premiums and are actually getting coverage? How many were uninsured before they signed up? And just how big has the drop been in the number of uninsured people?

Unfortunately, the answers to some of these questions simply aren't knowable or, at least, not knowable yet.

One presumes we'd begin to get a handle on that when the Census Bureau puts out its annual numbers in the fall. Except officials have decided to change the way they ask their health insurance questions for the Current Population Survey. (That's the study that produces the annual uninsured number.)

Those tweaks to the survey mean that, going forward, the uninsured numbers won't really be comparable to those of past years. That has produced some significant upset in the research community.

"It is a very unfortunate set of decisions in my opinion," says Blumberg of the Urban Institute. "We have all used the Current Population Survey for trends for measuring insurance coverage ... forever, it seems like, and we're not going to be able to do that because of the question changes."

Hmmm, my sinus issues have improved greatly in the short time I've been in SoCal.  Maybe it's not the pollen, though -- I'm living in the "Inland Empire"  (lol, that still sounds weird to me) so maybe the air being so much drier than in Raleigh is why I'm feeling better.

My wife is a green card holder because she's from Thailand.  She's been here just over 5 years now.  She isn't trying to become a citizen just yet;  Her green card is of the 10-year variety (there's a 2-year one, too, I think) so we have a little time before spending the money to get that done.  Immigration the legal way (petitioning for fiancee visa and then for a green card), even without the help of a lawyer, costs some money.  Not sure how much the citizenship stuff costs yet, but we won't put it off too long.

RRKore, best of luck with your wife obtaining US citizenship.  It will cost you about $1,500 without a lawyer.  A lawyer is not necessary.

I recommend you and your wife get this done ASAP, not just for the right to vote and to hold a government job, but for other more important reasons.  I am sure you are aware of them.  

If your wife travels outside the US, and for whatever unfortunate reason gets stuck outside the US longer than six months, her permanent resident status maybe revoked permanently.

I also read from an immigration attorney about a case where a non-citizen, legal permanent resident got into a bar fight.  He is married to an American citizen, has kids born in the US and he himself had lived in the US for years.  The guy got taken to court for hurting someone in the bar fight.  The judge somehow managed to get the guy's permanent residence revoked and the guy was deported.  It was all done legally.  The attorney who wrote about this said this is one reason why non-citizen US residents should behave and seek citizenship ASAP.

Why?  Are you not familiar with the Google?

Anyway, here's one:  City elections in Takoma Park, Maryland. 

Green card holders (who are not citizens) have apparently been able to vote in city elections there since 1992.

The google tells of more, but I'm gonna give you credit for knowing how to look them up on your own.

Now, what's your point?

RRKore, thank you!  I stand corrected.

I apologize for thinking you were a 24KT/JaguarEnterprises gimmick.  I still say she messed up in this thread and won't admit she was wrong.

LOL - dude you're flailing here

you can't support your claim and you can't admit you're wrong

Now you're projecting your obvious fear of atheists on to me

You really need to learn to admit when you're wrong and just move on



How do you know that your sources are 100% accurate?

Why are you so afraid of theists?

Why are you still having a discussion with me if you still believe this?

Besides, my personal belief is anyone who holds a fundamentalist belief in any religion is mentally ill (for real) which again makes for a pointless discussion

You seem just as mentally ill as you believe all theists are.
13  Getbig Main Boards / Politics and Political Issues Board / Re: Tennessee atheists win right to distribute literature after schools give Bibles on: April 17, 2014, 02:53:49 PM
do you understand that what you posted from the CIA World Fact Book not only does not support your claim of "most christian" but proves it is wrong.   If you're now going to say that we can't trust the sources you post then all that does it leave you without any evidence to support your claim

The weird part is that you've already admitted you were wrong but now seem to feel the need to back track

Virtually everything I've seen (some of which I've posted) put's christians at around 30-33% which I guess I need to point out yet again is not "mostly christian"

not only is it still my personal belief but I've responded to it the two times you posted it in this thread

Why are you not capable of seeing that?

I just responded to it a few minutes ago thanking you for posting it again and pointing out that you're providing proof of my belief by your posts on this thread  

How do you know that your sources are 100% accurate?

Why are you so afraid of theists?

Why are you still having a discussion with me if you still believe this?

this is ridiculous

you posted a claim that ~ 33% of the population is Christian as support for your statement that the "world population is mostly christian"

if you have some proof that the world population is mostly christian then post it or just admit you fucked up

btw - thanks again for posting my 7 year old quote.   You're pretty much proving my point about fundamentalist religious types being mentally ill with your recent posts on this thread

I said that because I read it in the CIA World Fact Book.  No need to get your panties in a wad over it.

How do you know for sure that your sources are 100% accurate?

Why does it matter when you made the statement?  That is still your personal belief, isn't it?  

Why do you keep dodging my questions?
15  Getbig Main Boards / Politics and Political Issues Board / Re: Tennessee atheists win right to distribute literature after schools give Bibles on: April 17, 2014, 02:03:54 PM
you're joking right

now all you've got left is questioning the veracity of the stuff you post

You're the one who posted this info

Various source show that Christians account for around 30% of the world population so your claim below is just FALSE

deal with it and move on

http://www.pewforum.org/2012/12/18/global-religious-landscape-exec/

How do you know for sure that your sources are 100% accurate?

It wouldn't scare me one bit even if Christians were the world's minority today.  Christianity started with just one man and his twelve disciples.  If Christians are the majority today, then great!  If we aren't, then we evangelical Christians need to step it up.

Either way, atheists have always been and will always be the world's minority.  Deal with it and move on.

Why does it matter when you made this statement?  It is your personal belief still today, isn't it?

Besides, my personal belief is anyone who holds a fundamentalist belief in any religion is mentally ill (for real) which again makes for a pointless discussion

you're suggesting that the source that you yourself posted is not correct ?

Thanks for bumping my post from 2007

17  Getbig Main Boards / Politics and Political Issues Board / Re: Tennessee atheists win right to distribute literature after schools give Bibles on: April 16, 2014, 12:18:08 PM
not probably incorrect but definitely incorrect

btw - the atheist were not "passing out literature"

From the article in the first post in this thread

and no one, other than you has made the claim that atheist are "afraid" of christians or anything

that is just another one of your weird assertions based on nothing but your own beliefs

given your posts on this thread you seem to be the only one that feels threatened by any point of view that is contrary to your own

How do you know for sure that it's definitely incorrect?

How is what the atheists were doing different than what the theists are doing?  The theist stand there with their Bibles and students can take one if they wish.

While I am no member of an atheist organization, I can clearly see the need. If left to their own devices, religious people would push their agenda and beliefs on everyone much like they have tried to do for centuries. Non believers need to organize to protect themselves from those zealots who want to legislate their beliefs into laws.

Besides, my personal belief is anyone who holds a fundamentalist belief in any religion is mentally ill (for real) which again makes for a pointless discussion

yes, I mentioned how you wasted 3 pages going in illogical circles but if that makes you feel better about yourself then more power to you

you seem to also be confused about very simple math

you wrote

"Christianity started with one man 2,000 years ago, and it grew to the point that today's world population is mostly Christian, and even greater is the percentage that is theist if you include all religions."

That is a provable and undisputed FALSE STATEMENT

Unless of course you apply that classic Loco pretzel logic and then it's obvious that 5 million out of 7 million people being NOT Christian ="world population is mostly Christian"


Okay then, I do admit that my statement saying today's world population is mostly Christian is "probably" incorrect.

My statement should be rephrased as saying today's world population is mostly theist, and will always be.  Atheists will always be the minority, unless they start popping as many babies as theists do.  So I do understand why these atheists passing out literature at schools are so afraid.

weird how you think that a reply I made to Ozmo was intended for you

seems like camp is definitely set up in your mind

You mentioned me on the post, nevertheless, and here you are again addressing me.  I live in your mind, apparently.  Who is loco now?

And this post was totally out of line, since I did post the information I go by, and OzmO verified it, whether you think it's valid or not.  But everyone knows you are an @$$hole, so what else can we expect?

don't you understand by now

if Christians believe something then it MUST be true regardless of any evidence to the contrary
20  Getbig Main Boards / Politics and Political Issues Board / Re: Tennessee atheists win right to distribute literature after schools give Bibles on: April 04, 2014, 10:49:46 AM
so we agree that the majority of the world ( ~ 72% or  5 billion out of 7 billion people) are not christian

it's good to find something we can agree with on in this thread

Edit - the debate at hand, namely "Tennessee atheists win right to distribute literature after schools give Bibles" was pretty much settled on page 1 when most everyone agreed that neither group should be distributing literature in a public school

Then Loco got confused and went off for 3 pages being Loco and....here we are

I thought you were done with me, and that this was a waste of time.  Why do you keep posting and going round and round in circles with me?  Have I setup camp in your mind or something?
21  Getbig Main Boards / Politics and Political Issues Board / Re: Tennessee atheists win right to distribute literature after schools give Bibles on: April 04, 2014, 10:48:50 AM
That's why i asked.  

Its safe to say its the largest in the world.  Not accurate to say "that today's world population is mostly Christian"

No biggie.   One mans storied life 2000 years ago turned into the largest religion in the world.  What does that have to do with the debate at hand?  not much i see, unless we are now debating the validity of the religion its self which makes it a candidate for the religion board.

You asked, and I gave you the data that I am going by, and you checked your own sources and validated it.

As for what does this have to do with the debate, go to the original post and see.

before making new posts why don't you try reading the existing posts

then maybe (hopefully?) you won't attribute false claims to me (or anyone)

If you want to just keep repeating the nonsense then go right ahead



I know you posted that, but you are contradicting yourself.  This thread is about atheists passing out pamphlets at schools, and when I questioned its "necessity" from an atheist's point of view, you got you panties in a wad.
