But you guys were not willing to admit the god could not do something.
Just try answering the darned questions and quit dancing around and maybe you will get a bit more respect.

BTW, how can you know what size rocks god needs to create? How can you know what size rocks god can lift?
How can you know god does not test himself?
Point is, you guys seem to just invent what god does, and this is a great example of this. This is why I think the entire idea of god is simply of mans imagination.
Do u read your own replies?

The idea of a universe from nothing is rooted in scientific evidence. Truth is we don't know how the universe got started...yet. But we sure as hell don't revert to magical thinking to fill in the void of our ignorance.

Science takes time and actual work.
U r behind on your "scientific evidence"

Poor curious. If you weren't such a vile, hateful, little monster I'd probably feel actual sympathy for you. But, your incessant false accusations, insane ramblings threats, and just downright nastiness makes that nearly impossible.
Still, I'd like to know... what is it that you think I'm lying about?
And..you just admitted that you know Chromiuman and I are not the same person. Yet, you still make that accusation. Why is that? What do you think I stand to benefit from posting as two separate people?
<quoted text>
See what I mean? A rotten little monster, you are. Full of hate and wickedness.
<quoted text>
Been there, done that. I've told you this before. I grew up believing in your god. I started questioning things when I was around 17.
My life has been improving ever since.
Oddly emough,it seems all you Atheists conveniently claim to be former believers.
What did you believe in and how did you come by your beliefs remain unanswered questions.
A plant with no roots will not blossom.
Some of the things you should be questioning now are
1)Why do Atheists have highest rates of suicide?

2)Why are 25% of Atheist families attending religious services

3) Why are 70% of children raised by unbelievers converting to believers when they reach adulthood.

It most assuredly seems that being foolish enough not to believe in God is not the solution,,,Yet you claim your life is improving?

How stupid can you be wrote:
<quoted text>No you tard....
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!

1)Why do Atheists have highest rates of suicide?

If that is true, I would imagine it would be because they look at death differently than theists.

2)Why are 25% of Atheist families attending religious services?

Maybe, sense of community, tradition, or because they really want to be open minded and give their children a chance to learn about religion. I bet their are several folks in any congregation that are atheist or agnostic. The keep up appearance so they don't hurt family or loved ones or they just have not figured out how to break ties to a community that has held such a big place in their lives.

3) Why are 70% of children raised by unbelievers converting to believers when they reach adulthood.

This article explains it a little better:

"Where did that 30% number come from? When the Pew Forum on Religion & Public Life conducted its massive U.S. Religious Landscape Survey, only 432 people surveyed said they were raised as atheists — a very low number. Of that batch, only 131 of them still considered themselves to be atheists. That’s 30%.
But where did the rest of the people raised as atheists go? According to a Georgetown University (Catholic) research blog,“Of those raised as Atheists, 30% are now affiliated with a Protestant denomination, 10% are Catholic, 2% are Jewish, 1% are Mormon, and 1% are Pagan.” Also, 20% became Agnostics or “Unaffiliated.”

Conveniently? I think you're using another word to which you don't understand the meaning. There was nothing convenient about my, or my families faith.

I, like most people of faith, was born into it. My parents brought me to church, ensured I attended bible school, and had long talks with me about the glory of your god. And I, being a good boy and impressionable young lad gobbled it up...that is, until my cup runneth over and I couldn't stomach anymore nonsense.
And now, my eyes are open. I've been saved! My salvation was rational thought. It all started with one little question: "Where did god come from?"

I know that you're "curious" and all, but I thought I was clear the last time you did this; I am not interested in you that way. I'm not gay (not that there's anything wrong with that). Please stop sending me invitations and making sexual advances towards me under the guise of insults. Your "curiosity" is going to get you into trouble if you're not careful.

Says I,let me make sure I understood you correctly.
Your parents brought you to church,enrolled you in bible study and had long talks with you about the glory of their God.
You gobbled it all up until you could no longer stomach their nonsense,which led to your becoming an Atheist.
Now,the real possibility exists that,your children will gobble up the nonsense you are teaching them and as they mature into adults,they may very well start seeking the God you have told them does not exist.
It may turn out that your children will become one of the greatest blessings God has bestowed on you...
I certainly hope so...

The moment you sprinkle your comments with" I would imagine's, maybes,if this were true leads one to believe you are voicing your opinion,not to be confused with facts.
What I believe is that Atheists are finding an empty space which Atheism is unable to fill and are looking for real answers to life's problems...

Maybe the Abrahamic God is real? Perhaps the Bible is true? I imagine those who are devoutly religious are not brain damaged? It could be that God responds to prayer?

Nah.... just teasing, Bonzo.

Well, of course it is my opinion. I can't go ask the participants in the study for more details.

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.
