I think God has severe anger problems. Gods little shop of horror.

Deuteronomy 32:

19-25 God saw it and turned on his heel,
angered and hurt by his sons and daughters.
Wait and see what happens to them.
My anger started a fire,
I’ll pile catastrophes on them,
I’ll shoot my arrows at them:
Starvation, blistering heat, killing disease;
I’ll send snarling wild animals to attack from the forest
and venomous creatures to strike from the dust.
Killing in the streets,
terror in the houses,
Young men and virgins alike struck down,
and yes, breast-feeding babies and gray-haired old men.”

This part shows God afraid his enemy will show him up. So God wants to do all the killing himself.

26-27 I could have said,“I’ll hack them to pieces,
wipe out all trace of them from the Earth,”
Except that I feared the enemy would grab the chance to take credit for all of it

I did not make that allegation.
The study that I cited made a point that Atheists find believers to be more trustworthy than their fellow Atheists.
I find that to be incredulous.
That is as surprising as the members of the KKK stating that they trust the NAACP more than their own members.
Obviously , Atheists know something about their belief system that makes them trust believers more than they do thir own.
It is the atheists who drew the believers into the equation.
That Atheists don't trust atheists is not my doing , it is your doing.
My problem right now is trying to figure out how many other monikers you use and what excuse you might use in order to deny them as I bring them to light.
I have found two of the six studies conducted in your post.... and proven both of them to be chock full of bigotry and prejudice....It's not my problem you lack the ability to understand that which you are reading!
My search is on going and I'm sure the outcome will be the same in the other 4 studies as with the two I've discovered...Bull $hit!

<quoted text>True that! Many will say they would not vote for an atheist, but if an atheist was on a presidential ticket, and was a good candidate, I doubt all of these people would refuse to vote for them.
Actually I am shocked that number is so high. Clearly many theist are open to voting for an atheist after all.
Mitt Romney was a well know Christian and was of the Mormon faith. Obama was called everything from an Atheist to a Muslim.

All it takes is a little research to find the answer, and Gervais's opinion of the reason why. >People are willing to hire an atheist for a job that is perceived as low-trust, for instance as a waitress,” said Gervais.“But when hiring for a high-trust job like daycare worker, they were like, nope, not going to hire an atheist for that job.”

The antipathy does not seem to run both ways, though. Atheists are indifferent to religious belief when it comes to deciding who is trustworthy.

“Atheists don’t necessarily favour other atheists over Christians or anyone else,” he said.“They seem to think that religion is not an important signal for who you can trust.”

The researchers found that religious believers thought that descriptions of untrustworthy people — people who steal or cheat — were more likely to be atheists than Christians, Muslims, Jews, gays or feminists.
NOTE>...... Atheists don't necessarily favor other atheist over CHRISTIANS OR ANYONE ELSE!!!! in other words, they are less judgmental than that of the "Christian' they base their decision on things other than one's religious or irreligious background!
Something Christian's undoubtedly cannot do, as this study suggests!
Basically, Atheist are intelligent and can make rationale, un bias decisions without prejudice. As with Atheist, Religion is not an important factor when deciding whom to trust or not.

The "Jewish Bible" does not recognize Christ and you are CLEARLY NOT knowledgeable or objective enough to pronounce what is correct and what is moth-eaten propaganda. Primarily, the Protestant Reformation splintered the wealth and power base held by the papacy and its representatives, but it did not appreciably change the tenets and rituals that had been established in Constantinople and Rome. There are no New Testament references in the Dead Sea Scrolls, and only about 40% of them contain information regarding the Tanakh, anyway.
The bastardization started with Paul, but you are right that it sure as heck didn't end with him.
You are Truly Clueless!
Good luck with that!

Ephesians 6

6:12 For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against
principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the
darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high
[places].
6:13 Wherefore take to you the whole armor of God, that ye may
be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to
stand.
6:14 Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with truth,
and having on the breast-plate of righteousness;
6:15 And your feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of
peace;
6:16 Above all, taking the shield of faith, with which ye will
be able to extinguish all the fiery darts of the wicked.
6:17 And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the
Spirit, which is the word of God:
Yes and Amen

<quoted text>The Jews wrote nothing of Jesus, so I am not sure what you think is so correct about it? The Dead sea scrolls does not confirm your version of Jesus.
The Catholic church burned many writings of Jesus in order to keep their version of the story intact.
Now you guys can war, as you have, over just what Jesus said, but it is all hearsay anyways.
Are you that CLUELESS?
What do you think Matthew, Mark, Luke, John, Peter, James, Paul,

The Holy Bible, Mohandas Ghandi, and I prefer the KJV. Our country(the USA) was founded on Biblical principles, by Bible-believing men.
Historically, the Bible was the main (if not the ONLY) textbook in early American schools. The Bible is the oldest, most accurate, best-selling book of all time.
nope. The Bible was used in early schools simply and only because almost every house had one.
So now here it is, 2013 and there's no excuse for anyone to be illiterate - or ignorant, yet you still think that the U.S. was founded on faith. Not a great surprise. You probably think there were only 10 commandments, too. In fact, the OT has over 600 commandments... Oh, you mean THE TEN commandments - the ones that Jesus didn't fulfill. The ones written in stone...

I have to add....
Everything written in the OT POINTS towards Christ, but
like you, and yours... They didn't 'want' to believe it!

Years ago I worked for a Christian woman.
Part of the work was decorating Christmas trees during the holiday season.
As a non-Christian, I had no problem with that.
I mean, who cares? It's just a tree with ornaments, far more a pagan symbol than Christian actually.
However the boss hired some part-time help for the holidays.
She hired a "Christian" ...who then refused to decorate trees because it was against her religion.
I can only assume she was Jehovahs Witness.
She was fired.

The problem is, although you are right, most of the people do not read or learn on their own. They only know what the preacher saids, they do not comprehend.

1948 + 3 score, and 10 = 2018... give or take!
The Re-birth of Israel, mentioned in the Bible
is Proof of God's existence, and His Love for
Israel, Jesus is Proof of His Love for ALL
of us....
Deny if you want to...
We cannot stop that!
God's word is True, and we pray for you!
Great day to you all!
