    Try to get it through your skull, I'm not supporting what Schilling said. Just pointing out the moron's suspension had nothing to do with that. It was entirely down to his behavior, which was that of your standard dick.

    Did I post anything pro or con about creation or evolution? But hey, why would I expect you to comprehend what you read.
    I get it. But creationists need to be called out, there is enough stupidity in this country.

    Yes, I comprehend what I read, no need to make a personal attack.

    How many times have I heard Jesus referred to as a zombie? To claim there is no atheist antagonism toward Christianity might be the funniest thing I've seen. I am curious about why you all just don't want to own it. Surely the thoughts and opinions of any believer can't matter to you.

    Edit: *ok, Hatuey's in the thread. There is someone I would trust less.
    I have no problem with you wanting to believe all that.

    Problem is.....science is about facts, not beliefs.

    And there is no room for your dogma, or anyone's dogma in a science classroom.

    Virgin birth, miracles, etc.... All you have is a belief that they happened, that may be enough for you, but I need proof, scientific testing, etc.

    Paying any amount of money to watch CNN is a poor decision. They seem to spend half their time relaying what CivicDriver1978 has to say on Twitter or Facebook about current events. If I wanted some dip**** on Twitter's opinion, I'd open my web browser and go to Twitter. You people are reporters. You learn about the thing, and then you tell me about the thing. That's how this is supposed to go. I want to hear what you think about the thing, because you allegedly know more about the thing than I currently do.

    Then Fox News tries to one-up them with the entire room full of enormous, unwieldy touchscreens that still only display four twitter posts at a time none of which I wanted to hear about in the first place. Stop outsourcing your ****ing jobs to social media, you ****s. Giant-ass tablets for some high-tech newsroom? Great! How about you use those things to show me some news.

    I kinda believe that. No offense.

    But I also think that anyone who thinks they are smart enough to rule out a "creator," or some kind of supreme being(s,) is a bigger moron.

    So I make popcorn instead.

    No offense taken, I actually appreciate the straight reply. What's funny is people saying, "not all Christians are idiots, just the ones who believe God is the creator."

    Can you point me to a post that said this?

    Because, once again, you are misunderstanding what people say. I'll help you:

    Not all Christians are idiots, just the ones who believe in a literal interpretation of Genesis. You can believe God is the creator and also believe that Genesis is metaphorical. Maybe that's the part you're missing: You can't conceive of the idea that the bible isn't literal.

    no kidding. CNN ****ing wasted time on some stupid holographic teleporter during the 2008 presidential race. who ****ing needs that? just tell me who the **** is winning.

    i mostly keep it for live coverage of breaking events and election. i would miss having it during election night. it would just be nice if they'd let me choose the ****ing channels i want. i don't want fox, sportsball, shopping channels, or other idiocy.

    Actually no. I don't think someone is a moron or unintelligent for their religious beliefs. Obviously I understand taking things on faith.
