To say that atheism requires faith just as religions do is akin to saying that absolute darkness is just another kind of light, or that absolute silence is just another kind of sound or that a bald person has a different kind of hair. This is patently absurd!
Do you think that I need faith in order not to believe unicorns ever existed? I think not.

You made the claim every part if Christianity is a copy of other religions.
I took the fundamental identity of Christianity, grace, and asked where it is copied from.
Can you validate your claim, or were you wrong?

The parallels to Mithra, who also offered this grace nonsense, are alarming.
"I don't find it strange anymore that there is a four thousand year-old legend among the Zoroastrians; the legend of Mithra. He is supposed to have been born of a virgin on December 25th. Mithra was considered as the "lamb of god." He atoned for the sins of people by dying. Then he resurrected on the third day! There is strong reason to believe that Saint Paul fabricated the belief system of Christianity from the Zoroastrian mythology. In order to hide Paul's plagiarism ... the Christians burned the library of Alexandria in 390 A.D. Books in that library kept Mithra's original story of which the Pauline Doctrine is an almost exact carbon copy.(George Sarton - Introduction to the History of Science)
No honest Christian scholar can deny that Saint Paul forged the belief system of Christianity from the four thousand year old Persian legend of Mithra. In order to hide Paul's plagiarism, the Church burned the library of Alexandria in 389 since that library preserved Mithra's original legend of which the Pauline doctrine is a carbon copy.(Kersey Graves - Christianity Before Christ)

Actually, grace is what makes your religion disgustingly immoral. That a omnipotent could only think of demi-human sacrifice via suicide by centurion is ridiculously laughable and disgustingly ridiculous.
Your CS Lewis apologetics are childish.
You "Loving Christian" oxymorons disgust me.
Barf.
Really?

You want to invalidate the Bible with that pile of baloney? I'll bet you know it is too.

Because that too, is regurgitated.
Hinduism is over 10,000 years old and that religion also uses the concept of divine grace.
You think your myth is special, it really isn't. It combines concepts, characters and stories from different, older religions. Badly.
Oh please, be specific.

Because there is still light, therefore it is dark but not darkness. Why the need to slice the words thinner than a Christian?

It's fiction because everything in the bible is imagined, there is NO evidence that anything in the bible actually happened. Your example of Eve in the Garden is a prime example of something only imagined.
I just gave you an example of one that is fulfilled right now in front of your eyes. Made 5000 years ago.

And all you can do is make unvalidated denials.

Pitimize? Hahahhaaaa.. How do you get this alleged promise? By dying, nitwit.

It's not a promise, it is a con. It is a product sold that never gets delivered. The shaman is the oldest profession in the book. Soft hands and no need to work while getting power and money on the backs of the deluded.

You "loving Christian" oxymorons are willful dupes.

The Bible invalidates itself and you invalidate it as well. Hey, internet tough guy, what part of the Bible exhorts you to call me a punk? Is it this Scripture?
Ephesians 4:29
Let no corrupting talk come out of your mouths, but only such as is good for building up, as fits the occasion, that it may give grace to those who hear.
Or this one?
Proverbs 20:19
Whoever goes about slandering reveals secrets; therefore do not associate with a simple babbler.
Or perhaps this?
Titus 3:2
To speak evil of no one, to avoid quarreling, to be gentle, and to show perfect courtesy toward all people.
Oooh, I know, this one...
James 4:11
Do not speak evil against one another, brothers. The one who speaks against a brother or judges his brother, speaks evil against the law and judges the law. But if you judge the law, you are not a doer of the law but a judge.
You have proven the a Bible is meaningless to you outside of using it as a way to make yourself feel superior to others. How shot must your self-esteem be from your inculcation that you find it necessary to twist what is supposed to be a message about love into some creepy, backwater death cult. You hide behind the anonymity of the internet and puff out your chest and engage in ridiculous SWAIM for your evil religion. A deity would be so proud of your behavior. Any time you would like to call me a punk to my face I can accommodate you. No go crawl back in your hole, little skeeter. Your Momma needs her feet washed.
You "loving Christian" oxymorons are creepy.
Wow, that's a creepy rant!

Frankly, it fits your picture perfectly.

All because I exposed your dark soul.

You know the best is yet to come.

Facts don't need judging. Facts are facts. Lame conformation bias is not a fact. That you are a pusillanimous creep afraid of his own shadow and dumber than a stump is an established fact.

Because I use the word "dark" and "darkness" in the common use of the terms. Total Darkness would require an absence of the entire electromagnetic spectrum, not just the light humans can see. As such "Total Darkness" is as meaningless as "nothingness".

You've proven you are incapable of stringing together two coherent thoughts let alone following a conversation.

Let me break it down for you, ITG:

1. You spewed out the tired CS Lewis trope, total PRATT, that Christianity was the only religion that had "grace".

2. She asked if you really believed that.

3. You asked her for an example.

4. She gave you Hindusim, which predates your immoral dogma by thousands of years. Hinduism has Kripa, the concept of grace you falsely claimed was exclusive to your death cult.

There's your facts. No judgment necessary.

Spit.
