You say that, now that it has moved to pizza. Good move.

Any good Chicago pizza in the airport in Chicago?, got a short layover next week.
I think Pizzeria Uno in in O'Hare. They have a couple of locations there. Not a cool as the downtown location but the pie is as good.

YAHAHA If it's gonna be thin crust... then it's got to be crunchy thin. There was a place down south called Simple Simon's Pizza. They had a crust so thin it was almost like a cracker! The pizza wasn't spectacular but that crust was awesome!

kg4kpg I agree, open discussion on complicated topics is part of what made this country. If we all had the exact opinion on everything then we'd be just like......well, we'd be like somebody, just can't think of who.
Some folks just can't take prdding like others can, you have to have thick skin sometimes. I disagree with personal attacks though, they have no place in any forum unless that's what that forum was made for.

Then you should try bacon on your pizza! My favorite is italian sausage, pepperoni, american bacon & fresh garlic. It's best to have the meats on top of the cheese so they get a little crispy and the garlic under the cheese so it doesn't burn.
Oh believe me, I always have the bacon on my pie. Your description is close to mine but I also like pinapple on mine and on thin crust.

I disagree 100%. It's threads like this that allow people to be exposed to other people's points of view. Some people are sheltered in their upbringing and go through their lives with closed minds. Open forums and discussions allow them the opportunity to get more information and the opportunity to discover new possiblities. Otherwise, if we were all still closed-minded & sheltered, we'd all still be worshipping Zuess and Aphrodite.


And good luck with your dad. Remember though, he was probably very patient with you when you were a baby and unable to have a reasonable discussion with him.

Makes me glad my dad's heart exploded before he got to that stage in life. His grandmother was that way and it was hard to go see her and have to constantly explain to her who we are and why we were there to see her.

navret been in chicago a few times and had pizza while there, had same discussion with friend in navy, took a ride from philladelphia to nyc and had brick oven pizza, although he liked it, he said chicago was better. to each their own. How did i/we go from God to pizza?
12-02-2010 08:51 AM
YAHAHA NYPizza?

Hit the windy city for some pie and you will forever be changed!

Pizzeria Uno / Dues
Lou Malnatis: order online; they deliver. Of course, not nearly as good as fresh out of the oven.

How do I know that Chicago Pizza is better? Jesus himself told me so. Wait, maybe it was Moses or Sheeba. Irregardless, I could care less who it was... Chi-town pizza is the best if you like a thick, crunchy, buttery-crust pizza!

I have always found civil religious threads to be indicative of a group that also is concerned with the other important issues of life, whether they be war or economics or which city makes the best pizza [chicago, by the way].

I left another forum because it couldn't be civil, because critical thinking was seldom used [and those two go hand in hand].

The place of religion in the world is a hard subject for some folks to discuss as it historically contributes to both war and peace, hate and love, life and death. We have many religions and many views, it is the working together, talking together from those desperate perspectives that make us better.

And yes, we determined that Poseidon is a Dolphins fan, Native American Spirit in the Sky is a Chiefs fan and Thor is a Vikings fan. Christian God is a Saints fan.

Irish Catholic God is serving drinks and Kali is writing all the gameday's odds on the whiteboard.

They are all quietly discussing the spread, who to bet on and which prayers to answer, all the time hoping the real boss doesn't find out and take their powers over this little outpost of a planet away.

And you know who else I can't stand? Aetheists who just can't let well enough alone and let people who believe, believe.

Some people just aren't content letting others live their lives in the way they believe in. They feel they have to go after their beliefs and convince them their beliefs are wrong and only the beliefs THEY believe in are right.
There you go. In a nutshell. covers the whole argument. I knew there was something with this guy J-Jerry, J-Jeep ,J-Jesus, J-joint, well maybe scratch that lst one!

Everyone has an innate ability to believe. What you choose to believe in is your choice, and your choice only. My wish, is that it makes you a happier person, and brings a greater meaning to your life. Whatever brings that to you in your life is what you should believe in.

I'm proud of who I am, and I'm proud in the people around me. To me, that's all that matters. I'm not going to state my religion or my beliefs. It doesn't matter. Just respect me for me, and I'll respect you for you.
Okay, lets try to straighten all this out. I am pretty sure from the beginning. This was supposed to be a honest to goodness debate over Christianity vs Atheism. I was trading with several different people who brought refutations and then I would present my refutations to theirs. It was a trade off until recently when it was more attacks on self. I personally wasn't pushing or hammering any ideas. Just answering to the best of my abilities and personal quest conclusions. It was a great debate for awhile... I have truly enjoyed the discussions on this thread and I would hope that it wouldn't turn sour for the sake of questioning.

I know there are several people that would just like to see this thread die. I hope that it doesn't.
