He can't debate. All he seems able do is repeat the same crap and continue to miserably fail to evince any of his implied moral precepts. <shrug> I don't anticipate that he'll ever come up with anything meaningful. The best way to deal with trolls is to ignore them.
I often wonder how the fundamentalists come up with the idea that homosexuality is a lifestyle choice. There was never a time in my youth where I made the decision to be attracted to girls - I just always have been. I can only presume that there was a time in fundie homophobes' lives when they must have been on the fence about which way they were going to flip.

Christians believe that there is a universe creating super being capable of reading everyone’s thoughts. Christians believe that this super mind reading being is judging the thoughts of billions to see if they meet his standards. After reading and judging the thoughts of billions of humans the mind reading super being will impose an eternal sentence upon all of either a world of eternal supposed bliss spent worshiping the mind reading super being or eternal torture spent forever burning but never dying.
The thoughts determining which of the eternal judgments you will receive must be that you believe, contrary to any evidence whatsoever, the following; over 2000 years ago the mind reading super being that created the universe became a ghost, impregnated a Jewish teenager with himself, was later killed by the governing authorities that were ignorant of the fact that they were part of a suicide plan that the creator of the universe had thought up.
The thought reading, universe creating super being was according to his plan taking the place of sheep. The sheep were previously being killed to pay for what the thought reading, universe creating super being judged to be sins against his self. Part of this belief must be that the thought reading, universe creating super being after committing this assisted suicide didn’t stay dead but came back to life and flew into outer space.
The delusional Christian having lost the ability to understand how utterly insane all of this nonsense is believes that it is the unbeliever of this delusional world that fails to see the light and needs their help to come to the same conclusion that they have about Christianity and how much sense it all makes.

The short answer: hell is a myth.

Christian mythology is weird and convoluted. There are multiple big events in the world that involve mass death and suffering and gods suddenly presenting themselves and doing things (whereas currently they seem unable to). So you get people going to hell and then later you get this Judgement Day boloney.

Notice how in religion all the impressive magic was either done in the past so we can't confirm it or it is yet to be done in the ambiguous future so it can't be nailed down to a timeline. With that sort of framework you can invent whatever crazy stories you want and just leave it all up to "faith".

That was covered a few days ago. Hell just means grave or alternately the trash dump in the valley of Gehenna. You are confusing it with the lake of fire in the book of Revelation (19-21). According to John of Patmos, dead souls will be raised from their cold graves (hell), judged and the sinful and the allies of Satan will be thrown alive into a burning lake of sulfur for all eternity for a second death. Naturally, you should realize that this was all just a paranoid schizophrenic's dream and has nothing to do with the OT or the Gospels. If you have any other questions about the Bible, feel free to ask atheists to get a straight answer.

Pretty much the Jesus story by itself indicates that if you behave and think in the way he directed you get the reward of heaven and if you don't you just die and that's it. "The wages of sin is death." No reward of eternal life frolicking among the cherubim and seraphim, The End Finis No Curtain Calls. It isn't much different than other religions in which spiritual fitness brings bodhi or nirvana.

It's not appropriate to teach religion in school. we live in a diverse society and can't teach all religions in schools. One has to keep these separate, it's up to the parents to inform their children on religious upbringing. I thought this issue was long solved, but i see it keeps coming back up.
This is part of Anthropology and SHOULD DEFINITELY be taught in schools.

I wouldn't leave it open ended as any school in any grade. Anthropology is not a children's course.

Chinwendu, for your posting of #137005,#137010,#137011,#13701 2,#137013, you are the winner of this month's Blah, Blah, Blah Award!
Do you really think that quoting the "holy" babble means anything to those of us who actually use our brains to THINK?
Foolish babble stories only underscore WHY we don't believe that nonsense.
Those stories are full of injustice, brutality, the rape and abuse of women, violence, how to slaughter your sacrifices, how to manage your slaves, intolerance of those who are different in any way.... all sanctioned by Yahweh.
You should notice that your deity reflects the thinking of superstitious Bronze Age tribesMEN.
This, in turn, should cause you to wonder WHY you think this kind of being would be admirable.
Do you kiss @ss, just on the off chance that this nasty creature is real, you might get granted immortality? It's not worth it......
"means anything to those of us who actually use our brains to THINK?"

Hahahaha.... you think you are using your brains...?

He is real, and not nasty at all.... He's offered you a gift, and it is YOU.... that is being nasty!
Of course.... you don't "see" it that way.... you "THINK" you are right....
