In other words, there is not now, nor has there ever been, any proof that any of the gods ever worshipped were, in fact, real.
Feel free to believe whatever suits YOU.

No one is listening to your wannabe Perry Mason presentation.

This coming from someone who believes in a god that he can't even prove is real and believes that all the other thousands of gods ever worshipped over the millennia were fake...because his fake god said so.

LOL

Dude, it doesn't take Perry Mason to point out the obvious flaws in religion.

Your perspective on the subject is sadly lacking.

What are you trying to prove? There is no supernatural or dimension other than this physical one, or that you are possessed by some emotional issue?

He can touch our hearts and on the same level it is your choice whether or not to have faith.
If you choose not to have faith, he can choose not to touch your heart.
Its not all about you....you know.

Sounds like you have a problem with the religion you were in - not God.
this should go down in the encylepedia as a text book example of ignorance and idiocy
on another note creationist need to learn that just because every detail of the universe hasnt been ironed out or unraveled with science yet doesnt automaticly means that your mythological being known as god exsist by defalt
You say my post was a text book example of ignorance and idiocy.

Nope.
I do believe in a higher power that brought forth all creation without exception.
His name is Jehovah and I am not him.

You have no supporting evidence for this assertion of yours, therefore, your god is nothing but your alter ego. Thus when you support stoning children and pedophilia then justify it with "god commanded it" you are really saying that you wanted it to be commanded.

One simple example, ancient Egyptian mythology is much older than your bibles are, and there are two stories in there that when combined form your entire "Jesus" myth. Imhotep and Horus.

Besides Alexander was a white racist who shrank to midget size when he saw the superiority of the black African Kings and pyramids in Africa.
He became the king of Egypt , and the father of a Greek Dynasty that ruled over Egypt!

When Alexander entered Egypt, he received the typical fivefold title of the pharaoh: from now on, he was the Horus, the protector of Egypt; king of Upper and Lower Egypt; beloved by Amun; the chosen one of Ra; the son of Ra, Alexander. The last element,'son of Ra', is of course the most important. As ruler of Egypt, Alexander was the son of the sun.

Ancient man did not have the advancements and data that we have. They thought doing rituals and killing animals on an alter would please the sky wizard and receive his approval for harvest or whatever. They thought you could whisper the right words to stop a hurricane from destroying your city.

Time has brought about progress and mankind is growing up.

Time to put away childish things eh?

<quoted text>In the beginning the description of it may have been accurate in a metaphorical way, but the description of it was quickly perverted to advance the interests of a particular group. That wouldn't make the original any less real, just discredited.

Man has a way of doing that. Including secularists and the noble ideas they profess.

Not when society uses this delusion called god to impede scientific and medical progress and causes the deaths of billions.

It's the only sane thing to do given the circumstances.

Why is it that many atheists are antagonistic against a God that does not exist and does not by implication challenge their reality?

Isn't antagonism towards a non existent being a sign of pure madness?
