My blog posts on religion have attracted a lot of controversy. Religious people are annoyed by my claim that belief in God will go the way of horse transportation, and for much the same reason, specifically an improved standard of living.

So are you suggesting that since I'm not as important as Jesus, Satan isn't even going to bother tempting me?
But I've demonstrated that Satan can quote scripture.
You have quoted scripture.
How can I figure out that you are not a minion of Satan or Satan yourself?
I'll give you a break - tell me about God without quoting scripture from the Bible.
Why should god any way exist? There is not the faintest chance for it!

They seem bent on educating America away from Christianity?
The education system is very bad in the US. So the chance for atheists are bad too.

It could very well that Mary (but not Joseph unless he was related to Mary) was a descendent of David.
But the prophecy of the messiah was that he was to be given the throne of David. Luke 1:32 He will be great and will be called Son of the Most High, and the Lord God will give him the throne of David his father,[33] and he will rule over the house of Jacob forever and his kingdom there will be no end.
The Divine Right of Kings didn't come out of nowhere. Jesus needed to be a direct and primary heir to the throne of David to be the Messiah.
The Bible takes a bit of trouble and insists that Jesus is the legitimate heir to the throne of David.
But I don't recall Jesus actually making that claim. Perhaps the theists can help me out here.
The facts: Jesus is 2000 years or so dead. God never existed so what?

Explain to me again, how I became the mal-theist (bad theist), in your little crack head scenario.
If I think the god is bad, how would that make me the bad theist? If you believe that Satan is bad, will that make you bad? Do you have to believe in Satan to believe he is bad?
Mal-theist! LOL! Hang on to that mirror, it is showing you to be, what you are claiming me to be, you dumb mal-theist. Ha, ha, ha!
You believe the God of Abraham is bad, you believe his faithful to be bad.
Keep reading on you chip mouthed slag for further explanation.....

You have chosen to believe that God is bad, now rub your 2 brain cells together....you have made a judgment and hold that judgment to be true or in other words you have a belief.
If one is a theist then it is correct to say that person holds a belief in the existence of God, as to the level of belief or devotion to God well that can only be known truthfully by that person and God.
But for the most part a theist will hold that God is good or God is above good and evil because he is perfect and balanced.
You on the other hand proclaim God to be evil, you proclaim him, his followers and everything to do with him (and that actually includes yourself) to be evil or bad.
You make a definite statement in calling him bad, you proclaim him bad (MAL) and yet accept his existence (THEIST).
In addition you are recognised as being a bad (MAL) acceptor of God (THEIST).

"How can a work of fiction be it Yahweh or Voldermort be bad?"
Maybe you should ask Boob as he thinks God causes all manner of wickness despite 'not existing'

Jesus Christ! Did you really refer to a passage that says effectively, this scripture is true because I say it's true?
Amos 3:7
Strange - my Bible shows Amos chapter 3 only has 5 verses. I looked around in the surrounding verses but all I see that resembles yours is Amos 3:2
"Even upon the servants and handmaids, in those days, I will pour out my spirit."
Rule 34 in play?
Silly as the "spirit" is!

We have come to the conclusion that Yahweh is a work of fiction like all other gods.

And your mal-theist definition there is actually polar opposite of an atheist.

Just thought I would help you out so you didn't keep making a jackass out of yourself.

It would be a task comparable to digging the Panama Canal with a rusty spoon, to find a way to make Siro >>not<< be a jackass...

... not unlike asking 14 pounds of pure U235 to NOT go into a chain reaction...

...!!!

In either case? It is in their very nature to do what they do.

And in Siro's case? Being a jackass is what he is.

He literally demonstrates that with every ugly True Believer™ post he writes.

Wrong assumption.

If he doesn't know nothing then he knows something. There is nothing there what so ever to make the claim that he knows everything.

But it does clearly illustrate how god is just an imaginary self projection tht believers use.

Atheists will claim there are no gods.

You will claim there is one god. You then go on to claim that a snake and donkey talked. You also claim that you're in telepathic contact with a 2000 year-old zombie that's watching us from some other dimension.

Not happy with all this you make further claims that the universe is only 6000 years old and was created by magic.

Still on the magic thing, you then claim that every single species of flora and fauna was poofed into existence by more magic.

Then you claim that the Grand Canyon is so huge that nothing other than a worldwide catastrophic flood could have created it.

There are many more comical claims you make. Including how geology, cosmology, genetics, biology, anthropology, astronomy, botany and numerous other sciences have all got it wrong; while a book selectively compiled from texts doctored and written by catholics got it right.
