Atheists don't really care if you defend your mythology. We understand the struggle within your own mind, hopelessly attempting to provide a rational thought, about your faith.
No I post fact, if you took the time to study of the origin of religions you would discover the same things that we already know!
Oh no, atheists care very much when Christians defend Christianity. That is evidenced amongst these threads.

You do post some fact, I'll give you that. But the majority of your posts is your opinions.

Ah. Thinking is thinking there's no such thing as a scientist who is also a Christian.

Quite the reverse, dear heart.

I'm saying scientists must use the scientific method to be useful. It simply should not matter what their personal belief system is.

I believe piltdown man was a hoax perpetuated by Arthur Conan Doyle to expose the weaknesses and gullibility of the scientific community of his day. CD is the father of modern forensics forensics, being an investigator and educator with Scotland yard. He masterfully exposed weakness if he is behind the hoax. Far from being a creationist or "christian", if he was behind the hoax did a great job of exposing the gullibility of some scientists of his day.

Reality cares little for what you believe.

The scientific method eventually buried the christian's lies.

Imagine how much better the world would be if religitards didn't lie so often.

you are the purveyor of a message supported only by a hypothesis. save the lectures and pseudoscience. you have no reasonable "point", no arguable position. you self identify as an atheist in a failed attempt to appear intellectual. A cursory review of your random, jargon-filled post indicates you are angry, argumentative and dogmatic.

As we all know, the New Atheists love to posture as if they are champions of science. The problem is that they only seem to care about science when it can somehow be recruited to aid their metaphysical and/or political agenda. What if you were to debate with a New Atheist and inform him that science has provided evidence that New Atheists are narcissistic, mean, and dogmatic? Do you think the New Atheist would acknowledge this characterization of New Atheists? Or do you think he/she would come up with reasons to ignore or dismiss such a scientific finding?
Well, there is no need to keep this in the realm of a thought experiment, as science has provided evidence that New Atheists are narcissistic, mean, and dogmatic.
