Your doubt and unbelief has no affect on my faith. You’re powerless in your argument to convince me otherwise. Enjoy the darkness that you embrace. Your love of self defines who you are and what you stand for.

I believe and will always believe that God is real. I know that he is real even if you don’t.

Psalm 145
[A Psalm] of praise. Of David.

1 I will extol You, my God, O King; and I will bless Your name forever and ever [with grateful, affectionate praise].

2 Every day [with its new reasons] will I bless You [affectionately and gratefully praise You]; yes, I will praise Your name forever and ever.

3 Great is the Lord and highly to be praised; and His greatness is [so vast and deep as to be] unsearchable.

4 One generation shall laud Your works to another and shall declare Your mighty acts.

5 On the glorious splendor of Your majesty and on Your wondrous works I will meditate.

6 Men shall speak of the might of Your tremendous and terrible acts, and I will declare Your greatness.

Atheistic mind:

Self centered and self elevated. Always believes they are more intellectual than the really are. Enjoy admiring themselves. What they say is absolute truth. Why?, because they said so. What you say does not matter. Why?, because you said it.

Vain to the center core of their belief. Their overly important self rises above all who challenge them. Arrogantly smug and their overly inflated self worth. Always in the indictment mode. Pointing the finger is a mainstay. All their accusations are true. Why?, because they said so, that makes it true.

Their sense of self exceeds the limits of what is normal. Narcissism has permeated into the root system of their mind. Channeling throughout their innermost recesses of their being. Mindlessly conceited and copiously self important to the degree of absurdity.

Admiring self and ones fanciful self absorbed and imaginary talent. Their wisdom is elevated by their superior high mindedness. They have obtained greatness in their own mind. They are their number one fan. Self rule and self guidance they navigate through life by self induced pride.

The atheistic mind is all about being self centered.“There is no god,” they say. Because they see no evidence in their inward looking self diagnostic analysis of self. Self being the center of the universe according to the wisdom of self.

“It must be quite galling for religious people to see atheists like me going about their business without a shred of guilt or self-loathing, and not in the least inclined to pray or to do penance of any kind, and not in the slightest bit worried about any form of eternal punishment. I have to admit if I was religious I'd probably think to myself: "How come I've got all this weight on my shoulders while these bums are getting a free ride?" – Condell

It makes a change from the religiously afflicted trying to push their old testament gibberish onto the whole of humanity in the same way they have for thousands of years.

Have you ever been to New Orleans?
I lived there for a few years and there is no other place like it. The cost of living isn't cheap there, but it is amazing how you can survive on so little, especially if you are just hanging out. It has its issues, but one of the neatest collections of people around. A good place to get your head together. Very mellow. Saved my ass.
Have you been to Venice Beach? Talk about a collection of people :)

Why do I have no belief? Cause there is no proof! The people who believe are completely different from the next believer! Atheists are not that far apart.

They are a saner kind of crazy in NOLA. The people are more real.

I don't think much of California and the plastic fruits and nuts they export. They check for them coming in, but not leaving.

It's kind of pathetic how you creationists love to lie about science to so much. Perhaps it part of your mental illness.
What is not pathetic is how you agonizing athetards will burn in Hell. You continue to show reasons why.

It aint necessarily so wrote:
Yes, I do. Such ideologies of violence are predicated on blind faith, personality worship, fear, and obedience.
They did not worship Stalin. They obeyed Stalin because he was a totalitarian dictator.
You're not telling me that you don't like to be grouped with the likes of Mao and Stalin, are you?
Does not matter what i like or do not like. Mao and Stalin were atheists like you. Not like me. You want to distance your atheism from their atheism by lumping it in with religion. You need to take a reality break.
And you're surely not telling me that Stalinism and Maoism aren't religions, are you? If not, why not?
They are not defined that way. Neither in a historical sense or any other sense. When people think of Mao and Stalin they do not think religion. They think tyrants and mass killers of innocents. They did not define themselves as religious people or founder of religions. They despised religion. What goes on in that head of yours should conform with historical reality. Otherwise you come off as just another crackpot.
