<quoted text>So in order to "obtain" the evidence, one must first die? And you find that concept acceptable? You don't for one moment find such a position absolutely insane?
You do know that such a belief is not only totally insane, it's completely unsupported by any known data. This makes it a belief as foolish as any Dark Age superstition.
Are you really that stupid that you find any part of this statement as being real?
It comes down to how soon you want the evidence. If you want the evidence now then take the ride. But it's a one way ride. My good Doctor, you are going to take the ride sooner or later.

Hopefully we'll see more of this diminishing membership as people begin to realize how idiotic childish superstitious beliefs really are.
So Doc, if you see a house for sale does that mean every house in America is for sale?

Or if you see a house being repo'd does that mean every house in America is going on the auction block?

Or if a school is shutdown does that mean every school is going out of business?

It never fails to amaze me those that cry over the treatment of some people show almost daily how bigoted they really are.

I have read your posts. Hot air and misrepresentations. Your fandom of self is unwarranted.
Such eloquent word construction. This must mean you're a genius. You could have said something a Neanderthal would say, but no, you used a higher vocabulary and being the intellectual you are you said, Wow, you're stupid."

This must be your superior intellect at work here for all to see.

The top ingredient's in the universe are Hydrogen, Helium, oxygen, nitrogen, and carbon. Carbon is actually the 4th most abundant ingredient in the universe. These 5 elements are what stars are made of. Guess what the main ingredient's are in YOUR body. Yep, all 5 of these elements. You should be very moved know you are made of the "stuff" of stars.

I make no claims of abiogenesis. Keep lying. It suits you.
Um, SCIENTISTS have changed their views. Toward what the Bible noted 5000 years ago.

You need to stick with vulgar scoffing, otherwise you really look stupid.

Interesting how they mainly care about human life only when it's still in the uterus.
Its always been that way, and the moment its born, then bitch and complain about another mouth their tax dollars are having to feed. Along with the "deadbeat" mom and dad.

Smirkmouth has already call every one of them "sluts". I bet when he walks, his a** hole is so drawn up, you couldn't get a tooth pick up it? He thinks his sh*t doesn't stink at all, that he is perfection walking. Except for that little prance caused by his a** sucking on a lemon.

This is the man that says we have no right to judge. He is judging "slut slut slut,"
that is what he thinks women are today, sluts

. Out of his own mouth he is judging all women .

What do you think they do when they've out-grown a building?
I laugh my ass off every time I read a 'rational atheist' oxymoron post like yours.
Smirk.
I KNOW for a fact that they never "outgrew" their building, just the opposite, people over time just stopped coming. The last sunday before they went belly up, they had 5 people for a Sunday service. People just decided that bronze age childish superstitious beliefs were embarrassing.

Since it is a known fact that Atheists display greater intelligence levels than Theists, rational thought, reason, logic, and skepticism, are very desirable traits possessed by all true Atheist's, so there is no oxymoron here, the mistake is all yours. He smiles down at the delusional child!!

Bullshit piled on top of more bullshit never makes it true. There is ONLY one kind of evidence, only one, and that evidence ONLY exists in reality as part of the naturalistic realm. Now if you want to say there is another source were evidence can be found its on YOU to demonstrate the validity of this "other" source.

Be prepared to supply something other than just your delusional episodes, or your psychotic personal experiences.

So I'm waiting, show me this alternative reality where I can discover evidence for souls!!!! Ready........Set..........GO!! !

Of course not, WTF kind of question is that?

It simply shows that this one particular Church has failed, that the "Faith" of it's members had vanished. One small victory for skepticism. And seeing TWO of these failed churches seems to suggest a trend, at least in that particular region.

You Topix Atheists! sure know how to spin a fanciful tale.
You know what a Topic Atheist! just told me? He said the Bible was written for the illiterate.
Yeah, that's right. A book that is completely text was written for those who can't read it.
Amazing...
That's right, only the ministers, priests, whatever religious leader got to read to his crowd, what ever part of the book he wishes to, almost like now. Most people never open their bible until they are in church and reading along with the preacher. They may as well be illiterate.
The preacher chooses the subject, reads and then tells everybody what he just read meant.
Been that way since the beginning of the religion. The book is sacred to the illiterate, they trust what the minister says and what the meaning is.
