This is getting old. What is being accomplished?

I'll tell what it is, hate. Radical anti theists are making it really hard for atheists such as myself to be respected in this town. Why can't yall be civil? Why are yall making Christians hate the shit out of us?

I understand yall are trying to make a point, but at this point yall are failing miserably at trying to spread the word of education and reason.

Yall are giving Christians a reason to not take what we say seriously, don't yall see that?

I think I may be able to answer your question. Christians are afraid to take a bite on the tree of knowledge!

“Give me the storm and tempest of thought and action, rather than the dead calm of ignorance and faith. Banish me from Eden when you will; but first let me eat of the fruit of the tree of knowledge.”
&#8213; Robert G. Ingersoll
We have heard talk enough. We have listened to all the drowsy, idealess, vapid sermons that we wish to hear. We have read your Bible and the works of your best minds. We have heard your prayers, your solemn groans and your reverential amens. All these amount to less than nothing. We want one fact. We beg at the doors of your churches for just one little fact. We pass our hats along your pews and under your pulpits and implore you for just one fact. We know all about your mouldy wonders and your stale miracles. We want a this year's fact. We ask only one. Give us one fact for charity. Your miracles are too ancient. The witnesses have been dead for nearly two thousand years.
-- Robert Green Ingersoll

Awe, is someone offended by mere language? Ingersoll lived during the golden age of freethought. Hundreds of people would travel miles to listen to his speechs. Here is another taste.
"One Sunday I went with my brother to hear a Free Will Baptist preacher. He was a large man, dressed like a farmer, but he was an orator. He could paint a picture with words.
He took for his text the parable of "the rich man and Lazarus." He described Dives, the rich man -- his manner of life, the excesses in which he indulged, his extravagance, his riotous nights, his purple and fine linen, his feasts, his wines, and his beautiful women.
Then he described Lazarus, his poverty, his rags and wretchedness, his poor body eaten by disease, the crusts and crumbs he devoured, the dogs that pitied him. He pictured his lonely life, his friendless death.
Then, changing his tone of pity to one of triumph -- leaping from tears to the heights of exultation -- from defeat to victory -- he described the glorious company of angels, who with white and outspread wings carried the soul of the despised pauper to Paradise -- to the bosom of Abraham.
Then, changing his voice to one of scorn and loathing, he told of the rich man's death. He was in his palace, on his costly couch, the air heavy with perfume, the room filled with servants and physicians. His gold was worthless then. He could not buy another breath. He died, and in hell he lifted up his eyes, being in torment.
Then, assuming a dramatic attitude, putting his right hand to his ear, he whispered, "Hark! I hear the rich man's voice. What does he say? Hark!'Father Abraham! Father Abraham! I pray thee send Lazarus that he may dip the tip of his finger in water and cool my parched tongue, for I am tormented in this flame.'"
"Oh, my hearers, he has been making that request for more than eighteen hundred years. And millions of ages hence that wail will cross the gulf that lies between the saved and lost and still will be heard the cry:'Father Abraham! Father Abraham! I pray thee send Lazarus that he may dip the tip of his finger in water and cool my parched tongue, for I am tormented in this flame.'"
For the first time I understood the dogma of eternal pain -- appreciated "the glad tidings of great joy." For the first time my imagination grasped the height and depth of the Christian horror. Then I said: "It is a lie, and I hate your religion. If it is true, I hate your God."
From that day I have had no fear, no doubt. For me, on that day, the flames of hell were quenched. From that day I have passionately hated every orthodox creed. That Sermon did some good." Ingersoll
nice to see you have to use someone elses thoughts as the building blocks of your church.

This is something else you do which is intellectually dishonest, a sort of dodge if you will. You completely ignore the subject of the post and protest the fact that I am sharing something written by someone else, something I freely admit and even cite. It is called research, but what would you about that. Its like debunking an argument by pointing out that it was typed instead of hand written. That may be true but it is irrelevant.

At least she admitted this occurred after an "accidental drug overdose".

I'm not saying abondon the cause, I'm saying there are better ways to go about it.

Hate is all this disscussion is bringing. Nobody knows how to have a civil disscussion anymore.

I bet we can't make it through a page of comments without insulting the other side, which both sides are guilty of at this point.

Is there anything else we can talk about?

So you think anti atheist or wftl will ever convert due to arguements on here? Or vice versa? If not, then are we not just chasing our tails?

Nope, but I'm not trying to convert anyone one way or another. They just think they can continue with their religious privilege, and their fear and hate emerges when it's questioned. They think they can go backwards to the world of Mayberry and the 1950's but all the while the world is passing them by.

It's possible yes but do I have my hopes up, not really. That's not what this is about, at least for me. My focus is to expose them to the methods of critical thinking and to show them that yes in fact there are, and have been for many years, logical refutations of their religion. They have never known freedom of thought, they have only ever known THE BOOK. Anti-Atheist's anger is purely a coping mechanism for dealing with his own internal conflicts. He wants so badly to hang on to a reassuring myth and since we are the ones actively reminding him that it is a myth, we are the enemy and we are the ones at which we expresses his contempt. He knows we mean him no harm but he tries so hard to force us into his prejudiced notion that we non-believers are some evil subculture, part of a secret society, hence all his 'atheist church' bullshit.
Then there is the matter of this being a public forum. Sure, these few guys with whom we engage my be so deeply ensconced in the religion that nothing can remove them, but there are plenty of silent fence sitters who are reading this and taking in both sides of the debate. They may have never seen a religious apologist refuted or, in your case, had evolution explained in the correct way. I would not being doing this if it were purely a private exchange, then I would agree that we were most likely chasing our tails.
whoa. since whem are you not a cult and a gang of deviates. that cartoon you posted of jesus a few posts back proves it.

wish i could find one of darwin giving a chimpanzee a blowjob while you and mr desoto circle jerk. it would go up.

Please note there is a difference between hating people and hating a belief which has caused (and is causing) untold horrors.

OK let me use your argument. Evolution is true because I have faith it is true, period. I will accept no criticism of evolution. Anyone who attempts criticism is an evil monster.

Insults only occur when a person chooses to feel insulted. I really do not mind them attempting to insult me because that is all they can do, try. An insult is entirely dependent on the receiving party. Anyone is welcome to say anything they like about or to me for I am not concerned with their subjective opinions, I am concerned with evidence and rational arguments. At the end of the day, when all the intended insults are brushed aside, is the person any closer to substantiating their claim?
In the case of Anti-Atheist and his cadre the answer is a resounding NO.
Good, because your personality warrants a lot more than you've gotten. Anti-theist and Evolutionman are rational human beings. You and Anti-atheist might as well be sleeping in the same bed. From the information he's provided me, it appears you prefer to be a "Catcher" as opposed to a "pitcher" in the sack... hahahha

Good night, and have fun trying to link me to religion again. I look forward to it.
