I'm sure he kept accurate records of who gave money to his campaign and will be reimbursing them, right?

Nope. He already said that they wouldn't return it because it's not the end. Apparently his plan is to give money to people when they're either in heaven or hell. You know, when it's worthless.
The truth is absolute. Life forms are specks of specks (...) of specks of dust in the universe.
Why settle for normal, when you can be so much more? Why settle for something, when you can have everything?

So pathetic how he and others are claiming that some good came out of such a perfect storm of cultish stupidity. Seriously, right-wingers who complain about moral decay need look no further than these Lying Losers for Jesus.
Live a good life... If there are no gods, then you will be gone, but will have lived a noble life that will live on in the memories of your loved ones. I am not afraid.

He's 90 and he's had a stroke. As far as he's concerned the world will be coming to an end any day now.

Yeah, I can't help thinking he's already gone.

I emailed him before his first try at predicting the end and told him a) it wasn't going to happen and b) he knew it wasn't going to happen, and that he was hurting people with his claims (folks who gave away everything, etc.).

Never heard back. But I'm beginning to think he believed it.

But he can't say he wasn't told. When these people come up with this crap, they should fact-check with the closest atheist. Then they would know it isn't going to happen and could stop with the stupid publicity stuff. Life would be so much easier without these self-indulgant dolts.

Oh, and if you're a believer and think you know the date of jc's return. You don't. It ain't going to happen. And I hope some frickin' historian and 30,000 years finds this post and tells the christians of the future that my prediction has been accurate for 30 centuries and then maybe two or three of them will come to their senses.

My words are not prophecy. It's just the best we can hope for.

I carved your post in stone just in case and buried it in an undisclosed cave in Syria. We're covered PP.  8)

I am no proponent of corporal punishment, but I'd say a sound public flogging for a select few could prevent several fools from parting with their money and senses.

Atheola, going to Syria at this time of the year requires a lot of courage. How many new scars did you collect?

He was wrong? Really? Wow, I never would've guessed... [/sarcasm]
You keep using that word. I do not think it means what you think it means.

Sweet. And I'm glad you did. I just scribbled it out on a piece of toilet paper and tossed it out the window. I'm always forgetting to remember posterity.  :laugh:
