    That quote is boring, and I feel the need to vent… No offense Netherlands, I am happy for your pleasant surprise. However, it doesn’t make for a great debate. The real question has always been…

    Is there a god? Any god? From any religion? With one single supernatural power? At all? Anywhere on this earth? Anywhere at all? How about one angel? Anywhere? At all? Just ONE single solitary shred of proof? Anybody!

    The preponderance of Evidence lies with the claimant!
    This trial is over, since your witness failed to appear.
    Your case cannot be proven and I find you in contempt.

    Judgment in favor of the atheists!

    You may appeal if your witness can be produced…

    It is not the burden of the atheists to prove your case. You made the claim, you need to provide the proof, end of story! Oh, you have no proof, sorry, you lose, PERIOD!!! I’m tired of being asked to prove god does not exist!!! NOT MY JOB!!! Why is that so hard to understand? Put up, or shut up! Bring me proof! Stop making wild claims if you have no evidence. You should be thrown in jail for make false statements and wild accusations!

    Matt 6:5-6
    For those who wish to eat on the run. You do not have to pray over your food. If you need to pray, do it in secret, so sayeth the lord!

    Doesn’t it say “unpleasant”? Personally, I’m rather glad the Dutch take this issue seriously. If the Vatican wants to play at being a nation state it has to accept the diplomatic consequences of its actions. I hope they expel the ambassador aka the Papal Nuncio.
