You're stupid.
(1) Every belief is a disbelief of something else. Every killing in history has been for a disbelief.
If someone kills for their religion, it is a disbelief in other religions or no religion.
(2) Atheism is not a disbelief; it is a belief.
"Atheism is the belief that God doesn't exist" -(The World Book Encyclopedia).
I'm not stupid though.

My Special Ed teacher assured me of that.

Well-- to be technical, nobody was killed in the **name** of disbelief.
In the Muslim world? If you profess to be a non-believer, Islam **will** kill your azz.
The same thing in pure Christian areas-- that is, where Christianity is both government AND religion, if you profess to not believe? You get death.
This is why religion is evil.
Killing because of a disbelief is not the same as killing for a disbelief.

No Forgery Evidence Seen in "Gospel of Jesus's Wife" Papyrus

Scientists find no evidence of fakery in an ancient papyrus scrap saying that Jesus had a wife.

The papyrus fragment is owned by an unnamed private collector, with bills of sale going back only to 1999.

Did Jesus have a wife? A controversial papyrus scrap making that suggestion dates to the eighth century A.D., assert a series of just-released scientific reports, which may point to earlier Christian beliefs.

Announced at a 2012 conference in Rome by the Harvard Divinity School's Karen King, the "Gospel of Jesus's Wife"—a scrap of papyrus with Coptic writing—contained some intriguing lines.(Related: "Jesus May Have Had a Wife, Ancient Text Suggests.")

The words "Jesus said to them, My wife ... she is able to be my disciple ..." are written on the center of the fragment. Initially dated by King to the fourth century, the message from the past resonated with ongoing debates about the role of women in Christianity, as well as echoing themes from Dan Brown's popular thriller, The Da Vinci Code.

The claim also attracted skepticism from religious scholars, who saw the fragment as a likely forgery.

But in the series of reports released by the Harvard Theological Review, various experts report analyses of the chemistry and ancient handwriting of the fragment.

They conclude that the fragment's ink is consistent with ancient inks and that its papyrus fibers date from the seventh to eighth centuries.

I wonder what he bought her for Valentine's Day?
A few extra communion wafers and a glass of wine? Or a necklace with the star of David on it?

I must say I rather like the new pope.

Of course I think he's full of shit but he seems like a decent man.

A far cry from the albatrosses currently in the Vatican.

If he does a right thing and turns every pedophile priest over to the police and they are sent immediately to prison he will win OG's approval.

This however is a fairytale and we all know that.

Organized religion is a professional business and should be taxed accordingly.

As you know good old Jimmy swaggert is on his way to the pearly gates even after two rounds with prostitutes in which he cried asking for forgiveness

He knows his god forgives this sordid behavior and his hypocritical stance insures he is a messenger for this God.

Once again it's safe to say that most atheist know more about your Bible than Christians including the apologists.

Repent from what ?
I wasn't born into sin nor were you.

How about that wife of JC?

Did he consummate his marriage and if so where is the brat?

There isn't any critical thinking about religion

It consists of nothing more than organized superstition for the ignorant.

People just feel there's got to be more to life than it really is.

What idol am I worshipping. You are a Christian which is the ultimate worship of self over everything else.

Your Divine Dear Leader is an incompetent middle manager at best.

If I didn't want people to suffer perdition, I wouldn't have it, especially for something as innocuous as a thought crime. The entire system as described in your fantasy book is a major moral failure. Infinite torture for finite thought crime is highly immoral in the standards and laws of our modern world. The authors of the Booble were trying to consolidate power and money as repentance was tied directly to tithing and acquiescence to the Church.

The best way to be an atheist is to read the Booble. This is why many atheists have a better grasp on Scripture than the theists who only get regurgitated study on Wednesday and Sunday.

I don't care if some Christians have that belief, they're wrong. Just like some of the Christians that think they can literally withstand the venomous bite of a snake because they've misinterpreted the Bible.
Just like I don't care how Topix Atheists! interpret the Bible, 99.9% of the time, they're wrong too.
You're lost in the woods on this one. The original poster sarcastically stated that headaches are caused by sin. You mocked her for making that statement even though she was mocking some Christians for having that belief. I illustrated that there are, indeed, Christians with that belief to illustrate that your mockery was just childish trolling. Try to keep up, nitwit.

Why should I believe you over them, anyway? Your immoral dogma is so convoluted and fractured that there is no reason to believe one Christian over another. It all goes in the dustbin together.

99.9%, eh? A number you pulled from nowhere. Quantify that statement or admit that you are once again just an intractable prevaricator. Why would a book inspired by a Divine Dear Leader be open to interpretation? Why should I trust your interpretation when there are easily millions if not billions of Christians who disagree with you? How can I trust you, when, if you are a modern evangelical Christian, just 100 years ago your views and interpretations would brand you as a heretic?

You have no compelling reason why your interpretation is correct and others are not. Christianity is nothing more than self worship, an army of one, a god styled after your likes and dislikes. Those other people are all wrong. I am right. I am going to Heaven. You're not. Blah biddy blah blah blah. What utter horse hockey. I'd say you should be ashamed of yourself but you're not smart enough to feel shame.

I never wrote entire. Describe the exact nature of your god. It has been said because your god is imaginary and no one can describe its exact nature. It is funny, though, because Christianity, Inc. rakes in billions every year while telling people exactly what Divine Dear Leader wants.

given more than ample time and a myriad exhortations to repent ...it is obvious God doesn't people to suffer perdition either ..

the idol you heathens adore is self ...you , put self above God ....
