    I refuse to participate in any debate with creationists because doing so would give them the "oxygen of respectability" that they want.
    Creationists don't mind being beaten in an argument. What matters to them is that I give them recognition by bothering to argue with them in public.

    “It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood, who strives valiantly; who errs and comes short again and again; because there is not effort without error and shortcomings; but who does actually strive to do the deed; who knows the great enthusiasm, the great devotion, who spends himself in a worthy cause, who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement and who at the worst, if he fails, at least he fails while daring greatly. So that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who know neither victory nor defeat.”

    -Teddy Roosevelt
    He was already a badass in my book but this quote makes him even more so

    "42" - Douglas Adams

    There does not exist a quote that says more than this.
    The plural of "anecdote" is not "data."

    "Will Space Ghost surrender his power bands and save Moltar from Your Mother? Will Adam West come to his aid or will he wimp out? Will every word Batmantis says be followed by that suspenseful sting music? What will happen next? Why is the sky blue? What is the legend of the yeti? Do you know the muffin man? Stay tuned to find out!"

    I really want to know the answer to those last two questions now!!!!
    This cosmic dance of bursting decadence and withheld permissions, twists all our arms collectively, but if sweetness can win, and it can, then I'll still be here tomorrow to high-five you yesterday, my friend. Peace.

    "It doesn't seem to me that this fantastically marvelous universe, this tremendous range of time and space and different kinds of animals, and all the different planets, and all these atoms with all their motions, and so on, all this complicated thing can merely be a stage so that God can watch human beings struggle for good and evil — which is the view that religion has.

    A king may move a man, a father may claim a son. But remember that, even when those who move you be kings or men of power, your soul is in your keeping alone. When you stand before God you cannot say "but I was told by others to do thus" or that "virtue was not convinient at the time. This will not suffice.
    ~Kingdom of Heaven; King Baldwin IV

    "In the event of my Demise
    When my heart can beat no more
    I hope I die for a principle
    Or a belief that i had lived 4
    I will die before my time
    Because I feel the shadow's depth
    So much I wanted 2 accomplish
    Before I reached my death
    I have come 2 grips with the possibility
    and wiped the last tear from my eyes
    I loved all who were positive
    In the event of my demise!"

    Mental Is Not Physical. Mr. Nietzsche was a very wise man. How BRAVE of you to challenge his thought.

    Your point? Mr. Nietzsche, prior to his death, encouraged a move away from religious doctrine, he felt that moving toward our primitave heritage (only the strong survive) was the better way.

    just telling it like it is. I'm pretty indifferent personally, and find your commentary in various threads funny at times. but that doesn't mean others do. you make the bed you sleep in. it is what it is.

    Lately you have been anything BUT indifferent. In fact, I recall a couple post quite to the contrary. You are the pot calling the kettle black. On a few recent threads, you have personally "snipped" in at me simply because of that ONE thread, where you did not like my 'opinion'. Ever since that day you seem to be following my posts with disparraging remarks. not cool. just let it go.

    I have no issue with the bed I make.

    I made the comment to Liquid. Why did you feel necessary to chime in on it before he had a chance to answer? Why does it seem that ever since my post, that you didnt like, that you continue to challenge me?

    Lose the chip on your shoulder. Its not that big of a deal. We simply have different values.
