Happily so! :-)
There are antique texts that we're aware of only through fragments. The poems of Sapphos for instance. (And... some ancient new testament fragments)
Yeah, I don't think you understand the point, either of my comment, or of whataboutism. Your OP claimed that Christianity was a defense against Muslim immigration, and that atheists should prefer this. I responded by showing that your rationale and argument would serve a Muslim just as well. This appears to have been a subtle point from your perspective, since you failed to recognize that your argument results in exactly the kind of oppression you claim Christianity could prevent. This is isn't an evasion of your point, it is a refutation of it.
'Nothing' is 'something'. If you can give credence to the existence of 'eternal' or 'infinite', then 'nothing' is their opposite.
I don't know. LOL Is there a punchline? "-)
Bragging or complaining? I am cornfused again. I do 63 miles one way and I see plenty of.... "Undesirable drivers".

You mean the god you can't prove exists.
We understand exactly what the mean. Other (((parties))) like to blur things.
I believe that's still pretty speculative and AFAIK the physicists who posit it are not presenting it as reliable fact.

I didn?t realize you were a professional educator! Good for you as it should be a part time job for you so you can qualify for the SNAP program
I have read the Qurah myself, meny years ago.
As if Texas didn't get "government" money.
Why yes you are, you got back what you put out.
You haven't made anyone do anything. You probably did get out there and make an ass of yourself for a little Soros money but you haven't stopped anything. Don't flatter yourself
Doesn?treally matter for this discussion. It?s about how YOU answer the question, does truth exist even if no one believes it.
She said to ask if you give piano lessons? :)
What about the god fearing people who killed 10 million Native Americans?
Like it or not Baghdad was the intellectual center of the universe during the 11th century. Islam hardly played a role, by keeping their nose out they thrived.
You think this is a debate?
If the OP is correct, the higher number of Christians means more targets for the angry atheists.
OH, GOOD GRIEF!
You were never a slave, either.
Reporting a story is not "an opinion"
Sure it does, else the government could simply deport you, or kill you outright.
Where's the persecution? I see a Cardinal's opinion.
Sex in the bathroom. How and where?
I've found them pretty tolerant...to a point. And it's their point.
Thanks I needed that. Please tell my wife about my studliness.
?For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men who suppress the truth in unrighteousness, because that which is known about God is evident within them; for God made it evident to them. For since the creation of the world His invisible attributes, His eternal power and divine nature, have been clearly seen, being understood through what has been made, so that they are without excuse. For even though they knew God, they did not honor Him as God or give thanks, but they became futile in their speculations, and their foolish heart was darkened. Professing to be wise, they became fools, and exchanged the glory of the incorruptible God for an image in the form of corruptible man and of birds and four-footed animals and crawling creatures. Therefore God gave them over in the lusts of their hearts to impurity, so that their bodies would be dishonored among them. For they exchanged the truth of God for a lie, and worshiped and served the creature rather than the Creator, who is blessed forever. Amen. For this reason God gave them over to degrading passions; for their women exchanged the natural function for that which is unnatural, and in the same way also the men abandoned the natural function of the woman and burned in their desire toward one another, men with men committing indecent acts and receiving in their own persons the due penalty of their error. And just as they did not see fit to acknowledge God any longer, God gave them over to a depraved mind, to do those things which are not proper, being filled with all unrighteousness, wickedness, greed, evil; full of envy, murder, strife, deceit, malice; they are gossips, slanderers, haters of God, insolent, arrogant, boastful, inventors of evil, disobedient to parents, without understanding, untrustworthy, unloving, unmerciful; and although they know the ordinance of God, that those who practice such things are worthy of death, they not only do the same, but also give hearty approval to those who practice them.?
Liberal believers don?t necessarily believe that they are ?correct?. But believe that they follow one option among many.
