No, the red dot is used primarily by Indians, not Iranians. The purpose of the red dot is to show you where you are in the store....ROFL

      No, have you ever seen the maps in the Mall? Wherever you are inside the mall, and have access to the nearest map, you will always see a red dot showing where you are inside the mall.

          I understand...

          I can't afford those malls either. The last time I purchased a shirt was from the Goodwill store. It cost 3 bucks....

            The red dots are birthmarks that let those born in India know if they are going to come to the U.S. and manage a motel or a convenience store.

            Those who run the lotteries love it when players look for consistency in something that's designed not to have any.

            Lep

            There is one and only one 'proven' system, and that is to book the action. No matter the game, let the players pick their own losers.

              Are you out of your mind?

              Show me where I said my grandma said she hated Christians. She may not agree with them but she doesn't hate anyone. She must've done something right considering she's 107 years old.

              Like you said, I might have lost too many brain cells but best I can remember it was in a very

              heated  post which Todd had to lock and delete a few pages.  If memory serves the reply had

              something to do with the way christians had treated her in the past.   What I find confusing is

              that my God is a monkeys butt but he is the same God that the Jews, Muslims, and Christians

              all worship.   All three trace thier lineage to the God of Abraham.  I hate religion because it is

              nothing more then a way to put down someone or make themselves look better or more

              important.  Kind of like what is going on here,  God knows who his people are and what one

              calls him/her self is of little value.  Many call themselves Americans but lack the values that make

              America great.  Just like the fake regilous who care nothing about God but use him for there own

                RL, I'd have to agree with a lot of what you wrote, especially this:

                "Many call themselves Americans but lack the values that make America great.  Just like the fake religious who care nothing about God but use him for their own gain."

                Of course there are many ways to apply those statements, one would be to the TV ministries that collect millions of dollars and put most of it in their own pockets.  Another might be wars made in the name of religion.  Even wars of empty vile words by people that wouldn't know God from a hole in the ground. 

                An open minded person, would be able to make a choice and not worry about the religion of other people.   Everyday there are people that we would call "nut jobs," harming other people in the name of religion, isn't that a lot worse than people that are decent, hard working people that have little or no belief in God and harm no one?  There are good and bad from both sides of the spectrum.  That doesn't mean one would have to become an atheist nor a religious zealot to be a good person.

                  TC

                  That is exactly what I mean, I am not saying that one needs to be of faith to be a good citizen, I was

                  once a non believer and still tried to do my best.   The two are unrelated and each person has the

                  right to live however they choose.  I see the decline of both america and people of faith as an effect of

                  not caring about anything  but self. 

                  I tied the two togeather because they both suffer the same disease, our country is falling through the

                  cracks because many no longer care about preserving anything.   I liken it to a bunch of people having

                  a party on a ship at sea.  They used up the supplies and now are using peices of the ship to build bond

                  fires to dance around.  I love america and it's people no matter where they come from.  I only want them

                  to show a little respect for what america is or was.  If someone does not want to beleive in God that is fine

                  but don't call me a dumbass because I do.  I can't prove God exist but no one can prove he does not exist. 

                   

                  Lets say that you want a new car and to get it you work extra shifts take a part time job and then one day

                  you go pick it up.  You love the car and having it gives you a sense of pride because you earned it.  You wake

                  up one morning to find it has been stold and taken for a joyride by someone who cares nothing for all your

                  labor you put into getting it.   You have insurance so the car will be replaced but this still cost us all.  Lets

                  say that they find the person and put them in jail at a cost of $50.000 per year.  Next our insurance goes up 

                  and takes even more out of our pocket.  The hard working people are made out to be fools because that thief

                  even gets full medical which most hard working americans can't afford.   It's no wonder that many choose to do

                  nothing constructive because what's the point,  however many have the faith to keep doing what is right hoping

                  that  someday we will get things fixed and life will get better.    If I called you a dumbass and a fool because you

                  choose to continue to work for a better tomorrow then how would you feel?   

                   

                  A person is either helping or making things worse there is no inbetween,  There are so many like you say that take

                  avantage and the world would be much better without them.  I heard a TV preacher say that God wants billionaires,

                  the world has them so why not the church.  This made me sick and then I had to think that I can't judge people of

                  faith based on what some idiot says.   There is a place in the bible where God's people wanted a king to rule over

                  them so they could be like the rest of the world.  God told them what would happen but they choose it anyway.  We

                  of faith are still dealing with that decision today.

                        Surely you don't use those exact words, but you don't have to. You speak as If you know for a fact.

                        I don't claim to know what TRUTH is, but I know what it's NOT.

                        This whole thread was about winning money out of a prayer, and I listed a ton of reasons why If there is a God, that his priority would most likely be to help or prevent 20,000 kids dying every single day, than for some shmuck to win a million or a few thousand bucks. It's not just the kids, there are many other problems in the world that have much higher priorities than winning any money, but some here just KNOW FOR A FACT that it was divine intervention. It boggles my mind.

                        The world is going to hell, but God stopped everything he was doing to let me win 4 thousand bucks. What a freaking joke.

                         

                        Had you said you just know he exists at the beginning, then I would have no problem with that. Of course, we could have a back and forth on that alone, but I can deal with that. You have every right to believe whatever you want to believe in. If you don't want to join the 21st century and quit dabbling in stone age mentalities that involve outdated rituals and hidden meanings that are only in the minds of delusional people, then go right ahead, be my guest. I have a right to disagree and so do you. But once you started with the patriotism crap, that's when I get upset. You don't know me from a hole in the ground. That's why I called you a dumbass, not because you're a believer in God.

                          I know nothing as I should and yes if God exist he could take care of the children but he might

                          have given the task to us.  The winning ticket could have been just a coincidence and I can accept

                          both as a posibility but don't know one way or the other.   Even if the story was made up I would

                          not be suprised and it would have no effect on what I believe.   I might change my belief some day

                          or upgrade my thinking as new information comes along but as yet I have seen none worth making

                          a change.  I did not just fall off the turnip wagon and have good reason for what I believe.  I have

                          read many books about the Ancients, UFO's, Evoultion, conspiraciy theories, devils, demons, gods

                          as a hobby and all of them use speculation as if it was fact.   I do know that UFO's are real I just 

                          don't know if they are from outer space.  I and a friend were  close enough to one that I could have

                          hit it with a rock, and that is a FACT!  Someone once asked me how I could believe in God and UFO's

                          at the same time.  I told him "well, UFO's Ive seen so that's not to hard however I have never seen

                          God but I can't write him off just because of that.  Many have never seen a UFO but they still believe

                          even with all the science saying it is very unlikely.   I guess moving past the dumbass thing is just too

                          much to ask.  Once one takes a side or stand there will always be those who know we are wrong.

                          I will consider the opinion that my winnings are a product of chance if you are willing to consider

                            You obviously don't understand the 20,000 kids paradox that I tried  explaining earlier. And I refuse to keep writing it over and over. You don't get it, and never will. Oh well, stay uninformed, who cares?

                            You actually believe that in the 400 billion galaxies, we are the only ones? Only an uneducated person would believe this.
