spotted! Note, the response "lol you're using x as a source" it is definitely from IRA, I've noticed that exact same on other pages that have discussed exactly the same thing, it's been used against me "lol your using vice as a source"... For example: here Rei makes a nice little post. The anonymous IRA goon does the standard format "lol, your using x" post to try and knock it down (not noting that it was the new york times, not the the national enquirer). Rei responds in kind, detailing why his post was correct. Another IRA goon, or the same one by mistake uses the same style of takedown as before, making the classic rookie mistake of highlighting their tactics. Notice also the outdated homophobic slur "gaydrian chen", so obviously russian it's painful (ok the poster may be a 6 year old child, but few adult westerners would do that) , might as well have a bear on a red background.

Most terrorist attacks in the US have been committed by christians frankly the islamists have only had a couple of successful attacks. In fact the US has killed more innocent US citizens than islamist have in the same time. In the UK you have more to fear from people who don't agree with you that a bit of biscuit changes to flesh or not when you eat it. One name shows that the US needs to fear military veterans and christians: Timothy James McVeigh Your argument seems to say that if you worship a zombie or shot a gun for your country you should get a free pass to kill who you want?

Well define omnipotent and omniscient then if it's not the same as a dictionary. I guess this is how christians get to make up their own meaning for theory too. If you don't mean omnipotent just say very powerful, if you don't mean omniscient say very knowledgeable. Don't redefine words then get upset when the rest of the world carries on with the original definition.

This is what always bothered my about prayer. If your god is omniscient, then they don't need you to tell them when someone is in need, which suggests that they are either incapable of helping, or unwilling. If god is omnipotent, then they are just unwilling to help. So you only need to pray to convince god to help. Does god only help after a certain number of prayers have been met, like some kind of spiritual kickstarter?
