Re: A JWST Collection. Merry Christmas!
Right after I saw your post, I added the Orion Nebula as my official computer screen background. It makes me think. A pause for reflection, as it were.

The most difficult subjects can be explained to the most slow-witted man if he has not formed any idea of them already; but the simplest thing cannot be made clear to the most intelligent man if he is firmly persuaded that he knows already, without a shadow of a doubt, what is laid before him.” - Leo Tolstoy, The Kingdom of God is Within You (1894).
When both religious and non-religious people reach the same conclusions then you know religion isn't the reason.--Percy

Troll alert
Back under your rock troll.

What can be asserted without evidence can also be dismissed without evidence. -Christopher Hitchens

Facts don't lie or have an agenda. Facts are just facts

"God did it" is not an argument. It is an excuse for intellectual laziness.

If your viewpoint has merits and facts to back it up why would you have to lie?

Re: More religious crap
There is absolutely no reason for anyone to run away from the god you try to market, rather the best reason is to keep it around as an example of what can be created by those who are bigots, discriminatory, incapable of thinking or unwilling to look at reality or evidence.
The most likely reason though is simply as comic relief, as something to laugh at when you're not doing or thinking about anything important or relevant.

That sounds funny coming from someone who's been running from God for a very long time.
Keep running, but know that the truth will catch up with you one day.

Yes, the truth is bigoted and the truth discriminates. Sorry.
incapable of thinking or unwilling to look at reality
Reality? What do you know about reality?
What is your yardstick for measuring reality? Science?
or evidence.
What evidence are you referring to? Do you have evidence that God doesn't exist?
The most likely reason though is simply as comic relief, as something to laugh at when you're not doing or thinking about anything important or relevant.
Laugh ... while you still can.

Re: More religious crap
You really are simply whillfully ignorant at best or utterly dishonest.
Fool.
I am a Christian and have been a Christian for over 80 years now.
It's the picayune god you created and marketed that I laugh at.

What you mean is, you're a fake Christian ... ie, non-Catholic.
and have been a Christian for over 80 years now.
You've been studying your (fake version of the) Bible in your fake church for over 80 years and still get it wrong. When are you going to wake up?
It's the picayune god you created and marketed that I laugh at.
Lady, what are you talking about? What "picayune god" have I "created and marketed"?
"picayune" isn't even a real word ...
Fool.
Technically speaking, I'm an idiot, since I have an IQ of 9 ... oh, and I have a fragile, eggshell mind.
