In America, atheists are still in the closet

So do many other interest and identity groups. Complaint is our political lingua franca: it's what Occupiers, Tea Partiers, Wall Street titans, religious and irreligious people share.

The GOP was right to change it.
The GOP changed it because they didn't like all those black Christians showing up to vote after service on Sundays.

I understand why a tea beggar like you would support restricting their voting rights.

I wait for you to support the paper bag test.

Right... the want to "restrict" by allowing millions of people to vote 'early', i.e., the way it was before the GOP "expanded" voting by taking away Sunday voting from persons who want to vote after church.
Scrote's Daffynitions...
If it's too much trouble to go to the polls on election day, they should not be allowed to vote.

Then maybe we wouldn't get the pieces of shit elected like the bastard in the White House now.

We should also re-think womens' suffrage. Without the female vote, neither Clinton nor Obama would have been elected.

That makes a strong case for repealing the women's vote.

You and Cletcher voted with the girls.

Nope.

There is no round 3D shape.

The earth is not a flat disc. Get a science book, moron.

Hang on there.

I always cast my vote in a responsible fashion.

And, although you may wish otherwise, I ALWAYS cast my vote.

Also, I don't understand your problem with the ladies. I like them.

You are wrong, and I proved it.

What best science is this? The ID kind or real science?

I looked up your text on google

“microevolution and time do not produce macroevolution”

Funny thing is that it’s only been posted for an hour and if you put it in quotes as above your topix post is the only reference. Remove the quotes and try typing in variations of the wording as well and I find no scientific site offering comment to confirm your claim. Admittedly I only looked at the first 5 pages for 3 variations 150 results, nada.

I do however find a few about pages stating the contrary and more than a few ID / creation./ religious type site all shouting as loud as possible

Please provide scientific proof, a simple link to a peer reviewed scientific paper to back up your claim will be fine

I would normally only consider round to be a 2-dimensional descriptive, but Websters does in fact list (definition #5) round as being an appropriate noun to describe a sphere or a ball.

It's a sloppy use of words, but it does fit.

The GOP is the party pushing absentee and mail in ballots... well, at least as long as the voting favors the GOP.

And I see how you skipped over the FACT that it was the GOP that CHANGED THE LAW and **RESTICTED** Sunday (tens of thousands) of votes.

Restrict:(quote)
re·strict
[ri-strikt]
verb (used with object)

to confine or keep within limits, as of space, action, choice, intensity, or quantity.

You don't respect intellectual rigor.
Your posts reflect that.
Liberal cliche' is sufficient for you. I like to support my opinions with intellect - and from a variety of sources.
It's not a new concept.
start your new religion

you will make an excellent religious leader

you express the correct amount of truth, honesty, and rigor.

Wanna bet your post here will lead to 1 of 3 possibilities:

1. Some reference link to the Discovery Institute or other religulous propaganda.

2. Ad hominem attack

3. Totally ignore due cognitive dissonance, i.e., turn a blind eye

It is not in anyway sloppy, and round (as the quotes above) include definitions that place round as three dimensional shapes.

Putting aside where any one dictionary puts a definition does not make one definition more or less correct- perhaps, in the opinion of the dictionary, more common, but no less correct.

What you you suggest trying? A flyswatter?
The Earth is indeed round , but is that a concise exact and informative description? Round takes modifiers to describe it.

You're full of horse pucky round is a general description that can describe anything that has at least 1 circular dimension.
A donut is round , a wheel is round , a plate is round.
Is round a complete description of anything? NO
