No need, I know of more than one such place, but I can tell you with some certainty how to ruin it.

Well, I didn't mention the name publicly, did I?

Read what you have written. It is entirely hypocritical and politically motivated, exactly the characteristics of the Pharisees that Jesus despised.

Not at all, but probably not what/where you are thinking. PM me if you want details.

Gregs

''everything had to come into being as a result of random actions and processes over countless eons. Thus, that means that even our thought processes and the ability to reason are the result of random processes generated by meaningless molecular activity. The logical conclusion is that the atheist essentially is asserting that even his or her own ideas about atheism are caused by the random interaction of hormones, glandular secretions and chemical processes. Since atheism itself negates reason, the mind of an atheist is a whimsical flight of fancy''

That paragraph displays a lack of understanding of biological processes and how evolution works which leads to a non-sequitur conclusion. I think I could come up with a better argument for being a Christian than that.

Do you sell "Ignorant Pulsatile Mass" in something larger than gallon-sized containers?

I sell nothing. Occasionally I distribute freebies. I will remind you though that I'm also prepared to earn money for charity.
