    It's definitely unpopular among those of you that don't own any land. Whether or not it's stupid is debatable.

    Renters literally pay the landlord’s mortgages and taxes, they contribute far more than owners

    Do you have empirical evidence to back your claim concerning contributing with regards to land owners vs. renters?

    Owners buy property and rent it for the going rates - which are higher than the average mortgage and taxes combined in most cases. While they certainly pay property taxes, unless they’re legitimately stupid, all that money is paid by the person renting, it’s included in the rental price to offset the cost of ownership.

    It’s a pretty sweet scam for landlords more often than not.

    In the case of people who just own and live in their own home, they’re paying the same as renters are, they just pay it to the government instead of it passing through a landlord’s hands first.

    The only people who don’t pay property taxes (which are much lower than income or sales taxes in most cases, which again, everybody pays) are homeless people

    And it’s cheaper to house a homeless person than letting them live on the streets, by almost 4x - cities with homeless people pay an average of 100k a year per homeless person while they’re homeless

    It’s factual information. If there are any inaccuracies please point them out

    Love learning new things

    But I don’t have much faith in someone who sees goodness in a authoritarian moron like trump

    You made a claim, and I was asking for empirical evidence which you did not provide. You simply reiterated your claim and acted as if this somehow serves as evidence. It's not on me to disprove your claim.

    It’s interesting how someone can ask for empirical prove, and at the same time be absolutely sure hat the christian god does not only exist, but is also the one true and only god.

    There is no empirical evidence for his beliefs.

    Like the meme goes - people accept their religion with only faith and no evidence, but if you tell them paint is wet the same people require proof

    Okay, you have no evidence for the claim you made, so you attempt to deflect. Clever.

    There’s lots of actual evidence for everything I posted, but I don’t really think there’s any point in posting it. Regardless of what it is, you’re going to discount its veracity for two reasons

    1. It doesn’t line up with your beliefs, so you’ll find reasons to pretend it’s flawed or irrelevant
    2. You’re so thouroughly brainwashed that a white Christian setting off a bomb at a mosque wouldn’t offend you.
    You have a solid intellect, but it’s incapable of basic reasoning. It’s sad, because you have immense potential from an intellectual perspective, if only you were willing to question things and examine evidence that’s contrary

    What do any of those insulting musings of yours have to do with anything? I couldn't care less what you or anyone else here thinks of me, I'm just trying to get evidence for the claim you made in your attempt to simply be argumentative not against the opinion I posted, but against me. You've got a hard on for me for some reason.

    Isn't that exactly what I attempted to do, but you are unable to actually provide any evidence? Are you on the junk right now, or what?

    Would you give a fair appraisal? I doubt it, you’re brainwashed with the fake religion

    Why don't you present your evidence instead of weak superfluous ad hominem attacks?

    Perhaps I will, I’m hesitant to put effort into something fruitless, but I’ll accept that you want to examine evidence with an open mind, and put something together for you.

    Why don't you post some factual evidence as backup?

    Burden of proof is on both parties in this one since you're both making claims of the opposite.

    To the atheists, we, Christians, are already waving the white flag when it comes to proving that our beliefs are factual, since we are saying that we believe on pure faith, lol. You guys win already. What more do you guys want, lol?

    I didn't make a claim...I stated an opinion. Is everyone here on the junk or just stupid?
