Come on chimney1, show us how smart you are. You constantly use plageurisim, along with copious amounts of copy and paste, pretending to know everything.

Ok chimney1, show everyone here just how smart you really are. Tell everyone here what it means to be truly smart. By the correct answer will all know if you are truly smart or full of sh*t.
Dare you answer chimney1?

Have you had a chance to prove that you aren't a liar and give us some evidence for your god? You've had thousands of years, isn't it time to grow up and leave your imaginary friend behind?

So they weren't disquised as scientists. They were simply scientists. Big deal. Most scientists are atheist or at least agnostic. Not sure what the news is here.

Seems interesting and no look at an old topic

Scientists discover that Atheists might not exist, and that’s not a joke

While this idea may seem outlandish—after all, it seems easy to decide not to believe in God—evidence from several disciplines indicates that what you actually believe is not a decision you make for yourself. Your fundamental beliefs are decided by much deeper levels of consciousness, and some may well be more or less set in stone.

Poor dishonest Creationist who can't get it through his thick head that without evidence of god: there is no god.

When you learn to love Athiests, they'll let you become a Real Christian?

Don't you want to become a Real Christian, instead of a bitter Creationist mouth breather, who can't bear to read anything remotely Atheist?

As usual, the attention grabbing headline of the article is not really supported by the facts presented. So humans "narrate" their experiences to an imaginary listener? So what? So long as they do not believe that the imaginary listener is real or supernatural, they cannot be said to believe in their imaginary listener.

Sounded like sensational tosh to me. If anything its really only claiming that we are wired to arrange our experiences in a way that we can later relate them to others - the "imaginary friend" is just a rehearsal for later real communication. That is how I would look at it.

However I would agree that this setup might predispose some people to externalise the experience and convince themselves that they really are talking to Zeus or their dead wife. Doesn't mean we all think its real.

Poor ill theists like Chris are literally grasping at straws in an effort to make Atheism look bad...

If only they had common sense...

Atheism is discredited?

Lets see. Atheism is merely the lack of belief in deities that nobody has ever been able to show actually exist. So to discredit atheism, you must provide actual evidence of a god. Any will do.

Until you do, I would say that reports of atheism being discredited are perhaps premature.

The existence of god is actually a very simple problem.
If he is real accoding to Christian, Hebraic and Islamic faith he is the most evil, childish, violent scummy degenerate being to have ever existed.

Or if you aren't an idiot he does not exist.

Wrong way round, the NAS gives around 74% of scientists as athiest (no belief in a higher piwer) and 19% agnostic (don't know and don't care), the remaining 7% have some belief in a higher cconsciousnesses.

And going off the press hype of "science discovers athism might not exist", how does one descover that not believing in something does not exist? How does one discredit what does not exist?

Come on now, as a good fundy you must have some god magic to explain that away.

Amusing article
What scares the new atheists
The vocal fervour of today’s missionary atheism conceals a panic that religion is not only refusing to decline – but in fact flourishing

Evangelical atheists today view liberal values as part of an emerging global civilisation; but not all atheists, even when they have been committed liberals, have shared this comforting conviction. Atheism comes in many irreducibly different forms, among which the variety being promoted at the present time looks strikingly banal and parochial.

So as a true fundy of the expected and required intelligence quotient you have nothing to explain that away and instead choose to promote some different and equally as ignorant ignorance. Why am I not surprised?

That is not what scares atheists, because atheism and the non-religiously affiliated are growing as a percentage quite rapidly, and that scares the hell out of you in fact.

What scares us is your refusal to accept reality as you hide away in your infantile fantasies and actually look forward to the end of the world, dreaming of Armageddon and the Rapture and all that other Death Cult nonsense you espouse. We would prefer to think the world has a future, and you cannot wait for it to end.
