re: Atheists, why don't you believe in God? - MiketheTiger69 on 5/13/11 at 1:46 pm
[quote]Why didn't god extend the same protection to 20,000+ innocent Japanese people who drowned as a result of a natural disaster? Why didn't god protect the ~20 men who went into the nuclear plant on what amounted to a suicide mission? It doesn't get much more nobler than that, potentially sacrifi...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)
re: Atheists, why don't you believe in God? - MiketheTiger69 on 5/13/11 at 1:29 pm
[quote]Question, is "God" in the OP referring to the christian god? [/quote] For me it's the "Christian" God but you raise a valid point. Since there are multiple belief systems for the sake of argument it could be any deity. But since atheists don't believe in ANY deity, that pretty much covers ...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)

Atheists, why don't you believe in God? - MiketheTiger69 on 5/13/11 at 1:03 pm
Since it's probably safe to assume that atheists believe the science of The Big Bang Theory and the universe, and subsequently the Earth, has a certain age of approximatley 6 billion years, my question to them would be, where did it all come from? It all had to start from somewhere and something, r...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (19)

re: How high is the gas going? - MiketheTiger69 on 5/3/11 at 12:12 pm
Here is why you're getting ass-raped at the gas pump. It ain't an oil shortage. It ain't the Arabs fault. It ain't' a pipeline problem. It's pure good old fashioned shortsighted selfish American greed! This ain't capitalism! http://artvoice.com/issues/v10n17/news_feature This is long....Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)
Poem from WWII - MiketheTiger69 on 4/14/11 at 10:26 am
As some of you may know, my mother recently passed away. While looking through things, I came across this poem written by my grandmother in 1943. I thought some of you, especially the vets on here, might find it interesting. My apologies for the "N" word. Remember, it was written in 1943. Though...

[quote]So parents helping there children out with college is just like spending tax payers money.

Sorry Jeff to revive this. I wasn't going to come back to this until my mom actually died, which hopefully will be sometime today. I've been villified for using this as a political platform.
