its not that hard either.
Armchair, you dissapoint again. You really had my hopes up for an epic rant of religious intolerance, something I just can't get enough of.
As soon as someone defines their God, I'll go ahead and explain to them how it doesnt exist.
I am an athiest-agnostic, but for argument sakes....
PRAISE BE TO ALLAH!
yah, but you live in alaska. you don't count.
Dodging me huh,
Alright, Then I believe in the native creator...the Raven.
Lots of Russian Orthodox out here. Ill take up the Christian version.
Before Israel was granted as the Jewish homeland Alaska was talked about as being a possible location for it said homeland in front of the UN assembly back in the day.
Also in Anchorage, which is a very very diverse community, there are quite a few Budhists. So Ill take that up...whatever is gonna get me the punch line here im down for it. The anticipation is killing me!
On a side note, and keep in mind I live in the middle of nowhere and know everyone in my town. I was in the mall in Anchorage and saw 5 Monks walking through the mall in the full orange robes etc...wearing white bunny boots. I had to walk away and crack up out of thier vicinity.
Raven...he's a pretty neat character. Kind of like Coyote.
watch out, Monks know kung fu. or something.
Speaking of mystical K-9 creatures, I just got home from a little drive and saw two wolves on the side of the road. It was dark and all I saw at first was glowing eyes. Then drove by and there was no mistaking it.
Oh I am a very polite person, especially in face to face encounters. I would never say anything remotely disrespectful to them.
Do you know what bunny boots are?
I recomend the FAQ section here.
They are an Alaskan staple. Surplus military boots that are very bulbous, but amazingly warm. It could be -30 and I am wearing ankle socks because otherwise my feet sweat. If you were to go over your boots in water, such as falling through ice. You simply dump the water out, and put your foot back in and you will still generate body heat. Developed in the 50s I believe.
Every good Alaskan has them. So I guess these monks. Damn fine Alaskans.
Come on ACG, tell me how you can prove got doesnt exist.
Now that is neat :grin: We have coyotes but no wolves
all these christians are like:
but the fact remains,
and just for giggles...
LIke I said, first we have to define God.
the one Supreme Being, the creator and ruler of the universe.
I always think so. We have plenty in Alaska. There was an article this week about a pack of wolves killing a half dozen sled dogs. I have seen quite a few. They are just elusive. To see them from the road is rare. I can think of
5x in my life seeing a wolf/wolves from a automobile.
We have coyote as well, and I have seen many many of them. I may have even pointed a gun at one or two, but that is for another time
One last night was quite large. Easily a body and tail over 6ft long. Probably as tall as great dane at the shoulder. If I would have had a gun with me and it would have been light out, I would have myself a new coat...or several hundred dollars.
goodbye to this site. I thought I was entering a realistic forum. obviously i wasn't. well done to the debaters and moderators who have debased what could have been a good site. and you ban people with racist views. fair enough but remember they had views. (maybe racist) but they didn't further childish crap. at least they had a view to debate against. and for the record America isn't the only country on the map. try opening yourself to the rest of the world instead of centering on US policy and politics. Your politics are so un-democratic it begs belief. (2 parties one voice) poplar vote etc etc
america defines what it is to let a country loose with a high GDP and no real morals. your constitution really goes against what both Thomas Paine and also your founding fathers really had in mind.
your constitution was based on greek then Roman then British values. and you have distorted every single one of them?
No wonder the world has no time for you. try to see the world from an objective view. you are the youngest nation on earth. and at the same time the most powerful nation on earth. Your nation has the chance to change world politics. please do the right thing and elect a leader who is qualified. would Britain ever choose an actor or a sibling of another president. No we choose real leaders.
Its impossible to prove the lack of existence of something.
Of course not. Haven't you ever (dis)proven a fallacy?
Isn't anyone going to prove God does not exist? I hear it is quite easy.
Actually, I keep checking this post with ever mounting curiosity. Is this the day? Is this the day that the existence of God is disproven once and for all, and easily?
I hate being a sucker, so somebody spill the beans already.
