Maybe next time, you could refute Kierkegaard. Or Hegel. Or Kant.

Well, not you. The abstract you.

A year ago there was a near 2-hour debate called "Does Got Exist" between Trent Horn (Catholic) and Jim Travis (atheist). It's pretty interesting.

For those that don't want to listen to the full 2 hours, they each give an opening talk right at the start and the final statements begin at 1:38:10.

Law enforcement officers arrested a Florida pastor Wednesday as he drove to a park to light nearly 3,000 Qurans on fire to protest the Sept. 11, 2001 terrorist attacks.

Polk County sheriff's deputies arrested Pastor Terry Jones, 61, and his associate pastor, Marvin Sapp Jr., 44, each on a felony charge of unlawful conveyance of fuel as they traveled in a pickup truck towing a large barbecue-style grill filled with Qurans soaked in kerosene. Jones had doused the Qurans after he met Sapp at a McDonald's, Polk County Sheriff Grady Judd said Wednesday night.

Sheriff's officials said that Jones was also charged with unlawful open-carry of a firearm, a misdemeanor, and that Sapp faces a charge of having no valid registration for the trailer.

When Jones got out of his vehicle at the McDonald's on State Road 60 in Mulberry he was openly carrying a firearm, Judd said.

“As he prepared to go to the park to burn the Qurans as he said he was going to do in violation of the law, the next thing he did was opened up a drum, a container, that he towed behind his truck. And then he took kerosene and doused the Qurans in the parking lot of McDonald’s," Judd said at a press conference. "The McDonald’s manager came and told him to leave. Well, now what he’s done is he’s taken a flammable liquid from a legal container and put it or poured it into an illegal container."

lol, this must have been difficult for you to decide which thread to put this in, as it involves your 2 favorite things to hate religion and cops.....had a couple options with the I-hate-religious-people thread.....or the I-hate-cops-arresting-law-breaking-citizens thread.

looks like your hate for religion won out.

Nobody's hating on religion.

Just pointing out how it makes people dumb.

Which it does.

The bible-banging nut in Florida is a great example.
