Why do fundies have so damned much trouble reading a simple sentence?
Where did I ask for 'proof'?

Most of us also tend to notice the killings 'in the name of God' that
go on right now, too.  In fairness, I note that not ALL are done by
'Christians' (whatever that means...)

Some of us do tirades about gravity, physics, and other facts, too.

Here it is with 'proof' again.  Are you really that incapable of
reading a simple question?

Reason 'what' out?  A 'logic' of an omniscient superman who is recorded
to have committed genocide on several occasions?  Who 'creates' a
world full of easily observed facts that contradict it's own existence?
Who orders wholesale murder on a regular basis?

A 'reasoning mind' is also blind to the reality of the Tooth Fairy
unless it chooses to cast away that reason and accept nonsense purely
on 'faith'.  It's a hell of a sloppy way to run a universe, if that's
the way it works, and I have no interest in dealing with anything
that deceitful.  If you do, go for it.
