    The US, in its own decline, is showing this same self-destructive tendency. The worse things get, the greater the inclination of the citizenry to say, “Carry on, everything’s fine.”

Every day is a NEW Eurozone crisis.  Every day Merkel and Sarkozy declare that they're on top of the latest crisis ... and every day the ongoing crisis gets just a little bit worse.

While this has a great deal of entertainment value, it is, nevertheless, really becoming tiresome ...

The Greeks are like the family member that comes to your house, eats your food and drinks your beer and never leaves.  What would be the downside to throwing these losers out of the EU?  Don't give me that contagion BS, they are who they have always been.  Why keep the albatross around your neck?

Define God for me. Most people don't actually understand the difference between a deity, God, and the fact that most religions worship deities, not God.

You're avoiding the question because you don't have an answer. If you can't tell me the difference between God and a deity then you don't know wtf you are saying exists or doesn't exist.

He's not answering because it's clear you're itching for a semantic argument as opposed to just accepting that an Atheist doesn't give a shit what you call your imaginary friend. Does a 7-year old care about the difference between Kris Kringle and Santa Claus? No, because they're both made up.

He's not answering because it's clear you're itching for a semantic argument 

The word "semantics" itself denotes a range of ideas, from the popular to the highly technical. It is often used in ordinary language to denote a problem of understanding that comes down to word selection or connotation. -wikipedia

And what is your point? He doesn't understand the difference between God and a deity. Is it an issue of semantics? Of course! but it is in how we draw meaning that we truly understand. All arguments are about semantics, so your point is entirely moot. Look at how I use the word God. I never speak of God in any context that would derive another person to believe I was refering to a "being", so why tell me I beileve in imaginary friends? It is obvious that you are associating God with deities. 

Does a 7-year old care about the difference between Kris Kringle and Santa Claus? No, because they're both made up.

Once again semantics isn't about two people using a diferent word to describe the same thing, semantics is about two people talking about the same thing but using entirely different meaning. Your analogy fails, Chris Kringle is Santa Clause, God does not exist as finite being hence the comparison to a deity is rather uneducated.

Quick search on wikipedia : deity comes through the Latin languages and god from the Germanic.  We might not be having quite the same discussion if we were spanish, for example (dios and dios.)  God's existence is a given, if god is available to think then it is (much like I am, cogito ergo sum), at least as an object of thought and therefore an existence as such.  Even an atheist would have to agree with that ;)  God exists in at least the same way unicorns do.  But I don't suppose that was the answer you were looking for?

Apparently you need an IQ under 90 to disbelieve...see Smithovsky, for instance.

This is all silly. It has nothing to do with IQ and everything to do with whether you think you are the biggest thing in the universe or if there is something bigger out there. Never mind...maybe it does have to do with IQ, ridiculous test that it is. (And before you start with your blathering about my IQ, it's several standard deviations above the mean.)

Any human who doesn't realize there are bigger things/beings in the universe than his/herself is at least a little retarded. To say that something "bigger" must be "god" is also a little retarded, logic-wise.

God was invented by men, there is no god, simple as that.
