Person from Israel?

In 2008, an Israeli professor claimed to have discovered small traces of element 122, Unbibium, in some naturally occurring deposits of Thorium. This fact had been criticized by other scientists all over the world. See here, at this page only.

Perhaps, that his claim could be false as well?

I agree here.

If it bothers you then ignore it. Simple as that.

That is a vile and bigotted slur. You should be ashamed for your insinuation. How is a school kid responsible for an entire nation?

If this was the soapbox and your were poking at Cheesehead, Xilman, or OT, that would be different, but it is not.

Indeed.

If you want to be widely ignored, please go ahead. Perhaps mistakenly, Ihad thought that you wanted to be taken seriously.

Obviously I'm screwing with Orgasmic Troll. No one would be stupid enough to want to be widely ignored on this forum (except R.D. Silverman of course).

The trouble with these Godbotherers is that they don't like it up 'em.

On second thoughts perhaps they like it too much...

Of course both sides are being unfair. One concept that I grant is much easier to adhere to with religion than without is the idea of pacifism in the face of aggression. Religion has a great deal to offer -- and some who do not hold religious beliefs are able to take advantage of things much the same way that a pathological personality can more easily choose which tenets of society they follow or manipulate.

I feel that the discussion actually draws the schism in the wrong place. Strange it is, that the present antithesis of a Jainist Monk is a Wall Street Capitalist.

I do not intend to dispute your allegation of unfairness - indeed, I welcome it - but, for the benefit of our members from Minnesota, I should point out that sarcasm is a rhetorical technique in which one adopts a caricature of an opposing view and speaks in an assumed voice.

Certainly most Christians do not think that the only thing stopping humans from chainsaw-mayhem-rape-o'-rama is the belief in a divine presence.

I still wonder, though, why such Christians are not offended by this characterization of humans. Sheesh! It's a nasty way to characterize Christians as well as athiests: as abortion-loving serial slashers restrained only by an invisible being.

You're also falsely assuming (without much evidence) that MOST people are irked by my "nitpicky" spelling demands.

How about I post pictures from Goatse in all my replies to you? If it bothers you, ignore it.

What the hell does "falsely assume" even mean? If you're going to nitpick people's spelling, at least have the decency to make sense in your own posts.

You are assuming that MOST people are NOT irked by your "nitpicky" spelling demands, where is your evidence for that?
