Atheism requires as much faith as religion? bearvspuma : The only problem with this rationalization is that ita s assuming all athiests are so because theya re intelligent in the ways of science and reasoning and all people that believe in a form of god are unintelligent.

Who gives a flying frogs ass where he got it.
It would be wrong if he was selling the questions for profit. This is topix, he won’t get paid for making a post. This is a volunteer site. Who is to say Ann did not take it from someone else.
You remind me of the freaking little girl in elementary school who was left in charge when the teacher stepped out of class. She was just itching to write some body up. Of course I being a hard nose criminal. Took advantage of the down time to sharpen my pencil at the front of the class.
So I would get my name on the board and a follow up ass kicking for being a out of control heathen. This of course made it more fun for the girls to turn in the boys when the teacher was gone. You are just like those freaking little tattle tales. Looking for some naïve reason to tell on someone.
Here in our society we have bank robbers, drug dealers, murderers, thieves and you’re here pointing the finger at someone for mighta, sorta, couldof copied something from someone else who copied from someone else.
Did you even think to look at the content of the question ant it’s message? No you are too busy acting like a 8 year old girl telling on the boys.
I give a frog’s ass that that he swiped it, failed to cite his source, lied about it, and then called those who busted him liars – it shows one more religinut’s moral bankruptcy. And that’s a good thing.

But I really don’t give a frog’s ass about your troubled childhood.

And it is not a matter of someone “mighta, sorta, couldof copied something from someone”. It is a* fact* that he plagiarize that list. One does not come up with the identical list and identical wording without plagiarism:

Exactly. So when your fellow religinut claims Angel does supernatural feats despite Angel’s denials of that and despite a video of the him demonstrating one of his levitation methods, it is worthwhile pointing out. It demonstrates the delusional thinking behind living in a world of demons.

And it’s good for a few yuks too.

I have no way of tracing my mother's ancestry back to the line of Judah so I can not call myself a Jew. Nor my father's lone past 1096 AD, I could be the Messiah for all I know.
I have not converted to Judaism either. If I did it would be reform Judaism, it is the closest modern religion to what Jesus taught.

You believe in some sort of deity but are very defiant against the New Testament. You have nothing to be ashamed of if you are Jewish, nothing at all.

If you are talking about the Miller experiment in the 50's that did not create life.
You didn't even bother to read the article.

Oh yeah. I wanna piece of that Jesus pie.

I'd implement a %10 tithe for Jesus, with an extra %10 for church overhead expenses, because that's the right thing to do. Don't be cheatin' Jesus out of his ten cent!

Nice!

And the quote at his trial, when the evil lawyer asked "Sir, do you have mad adoration for this boy?"

I think he answered "I only have mad adoration for myself."

There are many techniques for making people more suggestible without fully hypnotizing them. They are used by magicians, con artists, preachers, and politicians, for the most part.
To prep an audience to receive magic tricks, you need to make them feel very comfortable and confident, at the same time you are pushing them away from their "normal" mode of perception. A magician seduces his or her audience. Many will start with simple tricks and maybe even explain how they are done, and then later do a variation of an explained trick using a different means that seems to negate the previous explanation, and appears as genuine magic.
A magician may try to form a bond with the audience by portraying himself or herself as a skeptic, who only started learning magic to prove to himself/herself that it wasn't real. Then he/she would expound on all the revelations of real magic that they didn't want to believe, but eventually just accepted as a mystery. This gives the audience a direction for acceptance. They don't have to agree that it's magic, but they can enjoy the mystery that it could be.
I could think of a bunch more techniques. One point I would like to make that is the magician generally uses less powerful techniques than con artists, preachers, and politicians. The magician's aim is for entertainment. They aren't trying to control you after you leave their performance.
Now if we can just start discussing the manipulation techniques employed in churches I'll be in my element.
Wow, that's how I teach the magic of evolution!

Uhm...
