God got me out of that sewer. Those still living under those same sewerlike conditions , would like to drag me back in.
You will fail
One does not exchange a Gold mine for a latrine filled to overflowing .
Given the mental health of unbelievers ,it is certain that THEY are afflicted by Ignorance and Delusion.
One of your own seems to have discovered that which afflicts you.
Freudian slip , a mistake in speech or behaviour which shows what one is really thinking.
Atheists attending religious services.
Atheists invoking God's name in times of stress
Atheists continuously debating that which they insist does not exist.
In an aside; I can help you try and crawl out of the sewer , but ,I will not let you drag me back in
AMEN!

I'm saying that playing the race card is old and in most cases idiotic to play... There is a big deference between being prejudice and racism.... You are prejudice, I am prejudice... Everyone has been prejudice at one point or another... being prejudice does not make someone racist... and prejudice can have absolutely nothing to do with race.... It's roots come from Pre-Judging and if I someone dressed a certain way, have a certain king of car and a 1000 other outward things, Someone states they believe in a god, someone says they are atheist and a 1000 other details makes all of us Pre-Judge others even when we do not realize it....
But I'm tired of the chicken shite race baiting ploys....
Great post!

Evolution has been proven to billions of people. Of course it cannot be proven to someone who is so ignorant as to not even know how to use the word "proven".
Hold that thought!

Please explain why you feel that non believers would consider rapist, molesters, killers, A-ok?
Lets see, Incest is weaved throughout the bible, Killings is commonplace in the bible, and all performed by men of God. I'll bet you'll post about these things being A-ok!

No one is damning you based on your beliefs, but you are constantly damning those who don't see things exactly as you do. Explain to me how you have a right to judge me as evil and you as good. Haven't we all shown you through proof that what you judge us by happened in the bible by the very ones you hold to be men of God.

What have you shown or contributed to us with proof?

Careful your christian is showing. Well you did follow gods law and not get involved with knowledge.

I will ask yet another question you will not answer.

When you committed your sin or sins and asked for forgiveness from your invisible friend did you also ask for forgiveness from the real person you did wrong?

From Wiki:
"A German census in May 1939, completed more than six years into the Nazi era[2] and incorporating the annexation of mostly Catholic Austria into Germany, indicates that 54% of Germans considered themselves Protestant,(including non-denominational Christians) and 40% considered themselves Catholic, with only 3.5% claiming to be neo-pagan "believers in God," and 1.5 % non-Christians, or "non-believers". "
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Religion_in_Nazi...
Taken from this source:
http://books.google.com/books...
Therefore Nazi Christians killed millions of Jews.
Likewise, concerning Stalin and those other a**clowns, they didn't do all the killing on their own. Their armies did it. Among those soldiers were most certainly many religious adherents. Regardless of whether or not a dictator says you can believe in god or gods people traditionally did and do believe. So the idea that these millions and millions of people were killed by atheists is absurd.
Put it this way. If a Catholic president ordered the slaughter of a million people it would be carried out by soldiers. What are the odds that all the soldiers would be Catholic?
Very, very low indeed.
He who gives the orders is the one who is responsible for ALL that transpired.
You guys keep looking for excuses in order to deflect responsibility for the heinious acts committed by these butchers.

I imagine Pol Pot and MaoTseDung hired Christian mercenaries to do their dirty work...
The facts are that Mao, Hitler ,Stalin and Pol Pot had the political and military power and the means by which they tried to eradicate religion.
They sent millions and millions of innocent civilians to their death . I am sure they considered themselves Honorable men.
And there are those who tried to take them off the hook,,,and still trying

Bi-curious why do you change what you said. You said germany was not a christian country and the poster addressed that. Do all religies do that or just you? Is deceit part of the christian code or just yours?

Why are there so many religions?
A recent tabulation concluded that there are 10 main religions and some 10,000 sects. Of these, some 6,000 exist in Africa, 1,200 in the United States, and hundreds in other lands.
Many factors have contributed to the development of new religious groups. Some have said that the various religions all represent different ways of presenting religious truth. But a comparison of their teachings and practices with the Bible indicates, rather, that the diversity of religions is because people have become followers of men instead of listening to God. It is noteworthy that, to a large extent, teachings they hold in common, but that differ from the Bible, originated in ancient Babylon.(See pages 50, 51, under the heading “Babylon the Great.”)
Who is the instigator of such religious confusion? The Bible identifies Satan the Devil as “the god of this system of things.”(2 Cor. 4:4) It warns us that “the things which the nations sacrifice they sacrifice to demons, and not to God.”(1 Cor. 10:20) How vitally important, then, to make sure that we really are worshiping the true God, the Creator of heaven and earth, and that our worship is pleasing to him!
Are all religions acceptable to God?
Judg. 10:6, 7:“The sons of Israel again proceeded to do what was bad in the eyes of Jehovah, and they began to serve the Baals and the Ashtoreth images and the gods of Syria and the gods of Sidon and the gods of Moab and the gods of the sons of Ammon and the gods of the Philistines. So they left Jehovah and did not serve him. At this Jehovah’s anger blazed against Israel.”(If a person worships any thing or any person other than the true God, the Creator of heaven and earth, it is evident that his form of worship is not acceptable to Jehovah.)
Mark 7:6, 7:“He [Jesus] said to them [the Jewish Pharisees and scribes]:‘Isaiah aptly prophesied about you hypocrites, as it is written,“This people honor me with their lips, but their hearts are far removed from me. It is in vain that they keep worshiping me, because they teach as doctrines commands of men.”’”(Regardless of whom a group profess to worship, if they hold to doctrines of men instead of the inspired Word of God, their worship is in vain.)
Rom. 10:2, 3:“I bear them witness that they have a zeal for God; but not according to accurate knowledge; for, because of not knowing the righteousness of God but seeking to establish their own, they did not subject themselves to the righteousness of God.”(People may have God’s written Word but lack accurate knowledge of what it contains, because they have not been taught properly. They may feel that they are zealous for God, but they may not be doing what he requires. Their worship is not going to please God, is it?)

Did anyone here claim hitler was not responsible for the deaths? Nope, so you are diverting as usual.
And it looks like you are letting the killers off the hook by the old, "I was just following orders" excuse. Just what the typical follower of barbaric men would say.

I am sure that Stalin,Mao Tse tung and other destructive atheists thought themselves to be Honorable men.
Mafia Chieftains consider themselves to be men of honor.
You need only read the postings of Atheists on this website and see how they self proclaim themselves men of honor...
At no time have they ever committed an act for which they would feel ashamed.
Of course ,that is all based on their value system , which may well permit for any type of behaviour as being acceptable as long as it pertains to them individually and not others.
Obviously , Honor is a hollow meaningless symbol,since it can be applied as one pleases.
Human nature is controlled by strong unhealthy desires.
Envy , greed ,lusts ,deceit and jealousy among others.
Those who deny that they have no such desires and are not motivated by such ,are liars , in addition to.
What you posted , which you are attributing to me , is a description of your own desires.
You are partially right. Many things that I no longer do , is due to my fear of God, but more importantly , I now realize hjow corrupt human nature is.
Those who claim to be (HONORABLE) and self righteous continue being controlled by their carnal desires and condem others for behaviour that they themselves continue to practice.
You , being an honorable person , best not cast the first stone, cause someone may unleash a mountainful of boulders in your direction...
Humans do have carnal desires. But it is not just religion that keeps men from acting animalistic. And of course religion is not so great at slowing the acts of mans nature either. So acting as if Christianity or any religion has the market cornered on morality is just silly and evidence deficient.

The Nazis and Christianity
By Bruce Walker
Christianity had declined severely in Germany at the time the Nazis came to power, which is why the Nazis were able to come to power. In his book, The Dictators, Richard Overy states that in the decades preceding the First World War Germany was becoming increasingly secular, and that after that war, from 1918 to 1931, 2.4 million Evangelical Christians formally renounced their faith as well as almost half a million Catholics. In Prussia, only 21% of the population took communion and in Hamburg only five percent of the population took communion. Before Hitler, German religious leaders were publicly condemning the rise of moral relativism and decline of traditional religious values.
Weimar Germany largely had abandoned Christianity and increasingly was embracing hedonism, Marxism and paganism. There, decline of Christianity in Germany led directly to the rise of Nazism. Professor Henri Lichtenberger in his 1937 book, The Third Reich, describes the religious life of the Weimar Republic as a place in which the large cities were "spiritual cemeteries" with almost no believers at all, except for those who were members of the clergy. The middle class went through the motions, but lacked all living faith. The workers, influenced by socialism, were suspicious of the church. Even in the countryside, preachers had little influence on the people. In the 1938 book, The War Against God, by Sidney Dark and R.S. Essex, describes pre-Nazi antipathy toward Christianity by noting that churches had lost all their vitality and that their services were lifeless. Mower, in his 1938 book, Germany Puts the Clock Back, wrote that by 1920, God and Christianity had been in steady decline, a process that had begun in 1860. Mower talks about a culture not so much casual as vicious about sexuality. He writes of art sickened into atonal music, about the absence of any sense of sin, about entire graduating classes in high school turning up for birth control devices, and about the commonplace occurrence of abortion.
This hostility or indifference toward Christianity in Europe, and especially in Germany, led naturally to a profound anti-Christian sentiment in Nazi Germany
Sounds like every preacher or Fox News host these days talking about America.
I am sure these things have been said since the first religion was ever invented.
It is par for the course in any fire and brimstone sermon. Moses used the same theme.
Same speech, different day.
