To each his own. If you believe in religion that's cool, if you don't, that's cool too.
But no matter your belief or non belief, to call believers "herds of cattle" is just the most idiotic thing I've heard. I'm not that religious, but don't you get defensive if believers say ridiculous shit about non believers? The answer is yes, so just let people believe what they want to believe. You're no better than than the guy that started this blog by being a closed book yourself. Just go find a friend or something. This thread is retarded.
Yes, let's allow people to believe whatever they want as long as they don't thrust it down my throat and force me to "in god you trust."

I urge all those who have not been saved to go to the nearest Church of Chrst and be baptized a live your life as God instructs us to. When ones asks, "What must I do to be saved?" we find that the Lord answers by telling us to:
1) Believe in Christ. Jesus said, "if ye believe not that I am he, ye shall die in your sins" (John 8:24). This faith comes through hearing God's word (Romans 10:17). Without faith, it is impossible to please God (Hebrews 11:6).
2) Repent of your sins. To repent is to turn away from sin and wrongdoing and determine to live for Christ.It is a change of mind which results in a change of life. Some have equated repentance with sorrow, but it is more than that (II Corinthians 7:10). Jesus said, "I tell you, Nay: but, except ye repent, ye shall all likewise perish" (Luke 13:3, 5). Paul told those on Mars' Hill, "And the times of this ignorance God winked at; but now commandeth all men every where to repent" (Acts 17:30).
3) Confess your faith in Christ. The Bible says, "For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation" (Romans 10:10). The Ethiopian eunuch made this confession when he told Philip, "I believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God." (Acts 8:37). It is this confession which Christ said was the basis upon which the church was built (Matthew 16:16-18).
4) Be Baptized. Finally, we find that if one wishes to be saved, he will be baptized in water for the remission of sins. We see this happening in Acts 2:38, when after the people had heard the gospel (Acts 2:22), and believed that Jesus is "both Lord and Christ" (Acts 2:36), the people asked, "what shall we do?" (Acts 2:37). Peter's response was that they needed to "repent and be baptized ... for the remission of sins" (Acts 2:38). On another occasion, after Philip "preached Jesus" to the eunuch (Acts 8:35); when "they came to a certain water," the eunuch asked, "what doth hinder me to be baptized?" (Acts 8:36). When he was told to believe in Christ, and he confessed his faith (Acts 8:37), "he (the eunuch) commanded the chariot to stand still: and they went down both into the water, both Philip and the eunuch; and he baptized him" (Acts 8:38). The teaching of Philip and the response of the eunuch parallels not only Acts 2:36-38, but also Mark 16:15-16.
Friend, this is what the Bible says you must do to be saved. Don't delay any longer. Let us help you "put on Christ" (Galatians 3:27). Why not be saved from your sins today? "...behold, now is the accepted time; behold, now is the day of salvation" (II Corinthians 6:2) "To day if ye will hear his voice, harden not your hearts" (Hebrews 3:15).

I ask you this question about evolution. If amn evolved from apes, why do we still have apes?
The cosmos i leave alone even though you say you understand it. No way man. It is not to be understood.
You betray your ignorance of evolution by the above statement. We are not evolved from apes. We are evolved from a COMMON ANCESTOR with apes. Apes are our nearest relative. They will continue to evolve and we will continue to evolve. Please read and study evolution before you comment - I recommend "Why Evolution is True" by Jerry Coyne - that is the easiest read on the topic that I know of.

'attitude of hatred'? Where have I claimed to hate anyone? I think religion is nothing but groups of grown-ups afraid to face the prospect of dying playing pretend with each other. How exactly does that amount to hate?
That uneasy feeling you sense in your gut comes from something called cognitive dissidence, a feeling of discomfort when simultaneously holding two or more conflicting cognitions: ideas, beliefs, values or emotional reactions. Your dissonance is aroused because you are confronted with facts that are inconsistent with your beliefs. If the dissonance is not released by adjusting one's belief, the dissonance can result in restoring consonance through misperception, rejection of facts, seeking support from others who share the beliefs, and attempting to persuade others.

I suggest that the growth of atheism, Islam and other non belief in your god will eventually cause him to slaughter us all again (even you if you are not perfect) so my question is WHEN?

You really do disappoint me with that boiler plate dogma and your magnificient ability to change the subject or get off topic.

Is there some reaason you can not give an answer or opinion that is not slanted by your bias and hate? Could you have answered my questions if in, lets say, 1905 all religions in thw world had been euthanized.

Afterall you and, according to reason, love to show your views on here dealing with theory but questions requiring ordinary answers from ordinary people who have learned from life's lessons and history based on fact, seem problematic for you.

Guess we can chalk it up to another dodge by the non-believers when confronted by reality.

One more thing we all get tired of you guys shouting, Hitler was a Christian. Not so. Neither was Mussolini and for sure Tojo and Hirohito were not. They belong to you and your religion of no religion.Based entirely on theory and lies.

Take care of your soul and go to church and avoid all the bad things some people do, instead pray for them.
. Who the f*ck do you think you are, telling me what can save my soul? You are an awful human. Go to church to avoid bad things? Do you think bad things don't happen in church or in the name of religion? Go find your brain, sweetheart, I've got my soul.

Humans and apes evolved from a common ancestor. Look it up man, its science.
An ape is an ANIMAL and a man is a HUMAN BEING. There is no common ancestor to man. Man is man and animals are animals. 24 Then God said,“Let the earth bring forth the living creature according to its kind: cattle and creeping thing and beast of the earth, each according to its kind”; and it was so. 25 And God made the beast of the earth according to its kind, cattle according to its kind, and everything that creeps on the earth according to its kind. And God saw that it was good.

26 Then God said,“Let Us make man in Our image, according to Our likeness; let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, over the birds of the air, and over the cattle, over all[b] the earth and over every creeping thing that creeps on the earth.” 27 So God created man in His own image; in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them. 28 Then God blessed them, and God said to them,“Be fruitful and multiply; fill the earth and subdue it; have dominion over the fish of the sea, over the birds of the air, and over every living thing that moves on the earth.”

29 And God said,“See, I have given you every herb that yields seed which is on the face of all the earth, and every tree whose fruit yields seed; to you it shall be for food. 30 Also, to every beast of the earth, to every bird of the air, and to everything that creeps on the earth, in which there is life, I have given every green herb for food”; and it was so. 31 Then God saw everything that He had made, and indeed it was very good. So the evening and the morning were the sixth day.

For anyone reading, this is what is holding back our society. Evolution is a fact that we see today, and no amount of " I'm no scientist, but I feel that all science is wrong" will change it.

Get a grip people of Jackson, this is 2013, not 1513, we know facts that we didn't know then.

<quoted text>
The premise of your question is flawed. The first option is self-contradictory.
Christian religious law is not civilized. Burning witches, stoning unruly kids, executing gay people, stoning adulterers, etc is not in any sense of the word civilized.
We must first separate your false claim that current law is Christian and note the true nature of Christian religions law. Only then can everyone see that an atheist like me would fair no better under Christian religious law than I would under sharia. We are lucky that a majority of the founding fathers were well aware of the divisive nature of religion and set about founding a nation which follows neither. Our laws are secular and our government functions with the principle that religion shall not dictate government policy and government shall not establish or otherwise endorse a religion.
“Christianity neither is, nor ever was a part of the common law.”-Thomas Jefferson, letter to Dr. Thomas Cooper, February 10, 1814
