Your lying ways have led you into Atheism.
Your dysfunctional mind has led you into foolish beliefs.
Your chidren will more than likely chose not to live in your fantasy world.
Your Atheist acquaintances are probably at a religious service on Sundays while you sit at home drinking beer and watching TV.
It seems that your world is slowly but surely crumbling around you.
Your children will more than likely seek God,many of your Atheist acquaintances already are and you are unable to keep God out of your mind.
That which you claim does not exist has really got a hold on you.
And praised be God,not only you,Dukette,Chromiuman,Kitten kodder,
Witchinthe woods,Viagio etal..
Although you are not as many as you appear to be...If you catch my drift.. That deceptive trick is obvious and fools no one.
I have answered these questions and you have yet to rebut my response.

Man up and answer some simple questions.

It is relevant.
God operates within certain guidelines. For example, when He covenants with us that if we do a certain thing, He will bless us with a certain blessing, He is then bound to come through on His end if we come through on ours, or else He lied and would cease to be God.
He must operate within the realm of righteousness or He would not be worthy to use the priesthood power and He would cease to be God.
Part of righteousness is performing acts that further righteousness. Idleness and acts that produce nothing, serve no purpose and therefore would be taking time away from righteous acts that He (or we) could be performing. Therefore it would be against the will of God to make a rock for no righteous reason. Testing God with such a statement is unrighteous and a waste of time to ponder. This is why my answer is relevant to your question.
It's not that I'm twisting your question into a pretzel. It is that your lack of knowledge about God leads you to ask the wrong questions.
Tell it to the Christian that made the silly claim.

It is funny how Christians blame satan for all bad and god for all good. With these rules you can always find some way to justify your statement here.
Fact is, Christians that are good people often get crapped on with bad luck. Churches get slammed by tornadoes and innocents die and suffer greatly.
Counting blessings can be warped by flawed perceptions. Pointing at the devil makes this perception all the more flawed.

And here you go again projecting. I wouldn't care if I were the only atheist on this thread. It doesn't change the arguments. At the end of the day you're a guy who believes there's an invisible man who lives in the sky who reads our minds and controls everything and I'm a guy who believes you're bat-shit crazy for believing that.
I'm also a guy who understands that the classified advertisement process doesn't operate outside the explainable universe... and you're apparently not.
When have I lied?
Says I,You have lied every time that you have intentionally falsified that which I have posted,as you well know.
But that was to be expected. Since I know you lied and you know you lied,then your denying that you lied does not change the fact that both you and I both know that you lied

Maybe, I doubt it, but that will be their choice and I'll love them the same either way. At least they have the opportunity to approach it with an open mind.

Says I,Glad to see you will give them the opportunity to approach their search for God with an open mind.
That is probably the same reason why some Atheists are attending religious services with their families

Not at all. This is what you don't get (well, one of the many things that you don't get). It's not the concept of god that holds my attention. It's the lunatics that believe in god. Unfortunately you and your brethren are very real. The more I interact with you, the more I hope to learn about how your mind works. Which means the better equipped I'll be to handle your kind in real life.

Says I,I am extremely glad that you are seeking to find how our mind works. what you will find is that those who seek and find God ,our minds are guided by the holy spirit.
So, I fervently hope that you will find an answer to your question ,that will be a tremendous revelation which only God can accomplish.
By all means,I hope that you will keep seeking that answer.

I know,but the fact that all of you seem to be seeking to find out how our minds work and a desire to be provided evidence of God's existence points to your search for something that your Atheistic beliefs are not able to provide you.
What you are seeking can only be provided by God....
The fact that you all keep seeking is the Good news

I've wondered about that myself over recent years. Especially when candidates like Mike Huckabee show up who overtly admit they want to change the constitution to inject (their) religion into it.
Really?

Send him back to school-make him study SCIENCE this time lol.

First experiment-how to poke at an ape ad make it's face turn red in frustration--on par level with swiping a hand through a hornets nest.

It is a complex question that you tried to answer with a Cutnpaste from yahoo answeres.
That havinfg failed,you inserted ape penises and vaginas into the topic.
That failed.
Now you state what we already knew.
Only a far superior intellect can answer the question that neither Science ,evolution, Einstein,Hawkins or dawkins or human intelligence has an answer for.
We knew the answer all along.

<quoted text>Who says they don't teach it as a theory? And you might wish to look up the word "fact" as you clearly do not really understand the definition. Also, look up the phrase "scientific theory" and the word "theory" to see the difference.
How many times this must be pointed out to you in order for you to learn is astounding.
I went back to Webster and it seems my understanding of the definition of these terms is just fine. So I'm still right that fact should be taught as fact and theory should be taught as theory.

If you want to know who I was talking to on this topic, read through the discussion you joined.

You might think you know what these words mean, but it is clear you use them in a such sloppy manner to the point you sound uneducated.
Learn to use words properly so we can have an intellectual conversation. At this point I feel I am speaking to a child.
My definitions are fine. My use of these words are fine. You like to say that because there is some evidence for something, it is fact or truth.
There have been many innocent people sentenced to death because of court cases that have evidence that point to that person's guilt.
We all know that different evidence can emerge in the world of science, and then a theory may change or become obsolete.

Male and female do not have equal contribution. In FACT, the male sex chromosome is degrading, and may one day be completely diminished. Evolution is about surviving, and to survive, you must provide what the female cannot. This is learned not through communication, but by an inner will put in place long before religion was CREATED. It is not a design, did not come from an angry book of instructions, it is simply what happens, aka evolution.

Who are you talking to? "Bless them" suggests you are talking to a god, but I was unaware that you guys ask god to "pray" too.

Never can answer a question first, eh? "you guys" refers to you guys who pray to a god. While you're going about answering the last question I asked you, please also include an answer to "who exactly would your god pray to?".

Psalm 83:16-18 will answer your question:
16 Fill their faces with dishonor,
That people may search for your name, O Jehovah.
17 O may they be ashamed and be disturbed for all times,
And may they become abashed and perish;
18 That people may know that you, whose name is Jehovah,
You alone are the Most High over all the earth.

Religion should be left OUT of schools. End of story. Separation of Church and State is there for a REASON.
