1. Because people who believe in talking snakes and magic vote. I live here too and their votes make a difference in my life and the lives of those I love. Therefore it is important to combat stupidity.
2. It's fun.
Combating stupidity is important.
I do believe that is exactly what the 25% of Atheists that attend religious services each week are doing.

Moreover,so are also,the 70% of your chidren,whom upon reaching adulthood,discard Atheism as worthless,are converted into believers
or become Agnostics.
If you want to fight stupidity,you'd best start that fight with the stupid members contained within your ranks.

You really only thing in one color. Of the millions of possible answers to the questions you posted, you only came up with one answer to each and they're nothing more than what you want to be real.

Sounds like your delusion has rotted your brain completely.

You keep throwing out these numbers. Where are you getting them? Because I know for a fact that "70%" of atheists do not become religious.

And the distinction between an agnostic and an atheist is meaningless in this discussion. Both reject your claims.

Good question. I don't think you can sin against the Holy Spirit. There is just sin. Sin goes against righteousness, which means it is contrary to any of the members of the Godhead.
I think that most errors in the Bible were not intentional. I think even the Council in Nicea were, for the most part, trying to figure out the doctrine to the best of their ability. But none of them had access to a prophet, the Gift of the Holy Ghost, or the priesthood. So they reasoned amongst themselves as best they could and made decisions on doctrinal questions. And most of the stories of the Old Testament are not believed to be written by the people that experienced them. So there could be inaccuracies there too that come from verbal pass downs. I don't think I would consider it sin unless someone knowingly translated something wrong.
Your comments are interesting and have some basis in religious history, thanks for your reply. Now just a few questions.

If what you said is true about the Holy Spirit, then all good atheist are also among the ones saved. All who are good will be saved. So if those that are good will be save. That doctrine is nicer than the Jehovah Witnesses doctrine and even Yaa's doctrine and many others.

You don't think one can sin against the Holy Spirit, then why would one suffer in hell for all eternity? Something does not sound correct. If you sinned and have to suffer in hell for all eternity then you must have sinned against the Holy Spirit I would think.

Judias Escariot was commsioned as an apostle and had no doubt about the diety of Jesus, yet like Satan turned against him. Would you consider that a deliberate act of treason against God or an act of sin against the Holy Spirit by Judias.

That was not to me. I did find some reasons atheist would attend church.

But why would atheists go to church? I mean, what's that all about?

First, scientists feel that having a scientific mindset means being able to make choices for oneself. Even if the scientist parent does not believe in God, this does not mean that the parent should impose that decision on his or her children—the children should think for themselves. Many scientists interviewed explicitly stated that they did not want to indoctrinate their children into atheism and so exposed their children to a diversity of religious communities.

Second – the most dominant reason – many of the scientists had a religious spouse who had a strong influence on how to raise their children. While this naturally required some negotiation, most of the scientists came from religious upbringings themselves and did not oppose a religious upbringing for their children.

Lets try this on your level...'It were better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and he cast into the sea, than that he should offend one of these little ones."
You are offensive and you continue to be so on purpose. Why? Do you think that shows Christs's love somehow? What is your reasoning for continuing this behavior? Attention? Couldn't be ignorance, you have been shown why it is offensive over and over and you refuse to stop.
What it shows to me is that you have no reasoning power. You are unwilling to learn. You do not really care how your words hurt others, you just want to talk to make a sound, as sounding brass, or a tinkling cymbal. Empty words, void of charity. You cannot even hope to uphold Christ and his teachings when you refuse to have empathy for your fellow man.
Your behavior disgusting and other Christians should be ashamed and call you out on it!
Revelation
5:1 And I saw in the right hand of him that sat on the throne a
book written within and on the backside, sealed with seven
seals.
5:2 And I saw a strong angel proclaiming with a loud voice, Who
is worthy to open the book, and to loose its seals?
5:3 And no man in heaven, nor in earth, neither under the earth,
was able to open the book, neither to look upon it.
5:4 And I wept much, because no man was found worthy to open,
and to read the book, neither to look upon it.
5:5 And one of the elders saith to me, Weep not: behold, the
Lion of the tribe of Judah, the Root of David, hath prevailed
to open the book, and to loose its seven seals.
5:6 And I beheld, and lo, in the midst of the throne, and of the
four living beings, and in the midst of the elders stood a Lamb
as it had been slain, having seven horns, and seven eyes, which
are the seven Spirits of God sent forth into all the earth.
5:7 And he came and took the book out of the right hand of him
that sat upon the throne.
5:8 And when he had taken the book, the four living beings, and
four [and] twenty elders fell down before the Lamb, having
every one of them harps, and golden vials full of odors, which
are the prayers of saints.
5:9 And they sung a new song, saying, Thou art worthy to take
the book, and to open the seals of it: for thou wast slain, and
hast redeemed us to God by thy blood out of every kindred, and
language, and people, and nation;
5:10 And hast made us to our God kings and priests: and we shall
reign on the earth.

You have to be the dumbest dumb @$$ on topix.

You are not offending the 'little ones' posting on this topix thread.

You are using a term that is offensive to people with developmental problems and their families. And some of them ARE those 'little ones'.

You lost any credibility on here long, long ago and I don't care how hard you are on these people because they know you are ignorant. You have no proof of anything you claim so you use offensive terms and language to draw attention away from that fact.

It is foolish to think that calling someone an offensive term is going to make them see the error of their ways and turn to your religion. You are just tarnishing the image of your religion....

So, have at it, I guess.

Isn't there a way that it could be taught and the parents have a choice as to whether their child did or did not attend that specific class? I myself think it is a good idea, but I can't speak for everyone. There is so much going on in our schools nowadays, maybe for some this will help. It's scary how things have become. When I attended high school, there was a class there, but it was our choice as to whether or not to attend. This is just my opinion.
It is good that you have given it some thought. The most effective way is to have a free Bible study at your home where every family member can set in. If you are interested go to www.jw.org and request a Bible study.
