People get sensitized and reactive when they are called idiots and names for their beliefs. That is why I react to these Topix atheist idiots. I started out and made a mistake of not calling theists idiots and they jumped on me. They made me do it.
But, back to worshiping men, which Topix atheists do, I haveone question I would like them to answer.
Given that every government has a chief executive, a top dog that runs it, even democracies, I would like to know what man or woman alive today would they trust their lives and happiness to by giving them absolute authority over such. Such an individual, or small group of individuals, will determine morals, correct thinking, and all other aspects deemed NECESSARY at the time for smooth social advancement. Those leaders will be answerable only to themselves.

<quoted text>Anger is not a sin, it is a natural reaction and an emotion. We cannot control the way we feel. But the way we respond to that anger we can control. God is "slow to anger" and doesn't let it rule her spirit.
Tell that to the Pharaoh durning the time of Mosses, if you believe in that book. Her spirit seemed a little out of control.

There is no sin in the bible forum. You either do what you belief to be right, or you don't care about what you belief to be right, and don't.

All of them Dave , you know non belief in America is a small but growing percentage. But 30 years ago probably like 1%.
Most everyone I know is religious, and most ridiculously so.
See Jesus on the cheese toast, and floating in the coffee religiousnutty.
The mass media is responsible for the Jesus on the toast phenomenon. It is also responsible for the rash of UFO sightings and Topix atheists.

Fill an empty mind with bullshit and watch them reproduce.

Har har. How witty.

Rope a dopes.

A little bit of knowledge can be a dangerous thing.

The dumbest humans are not the lowest IQ's. It is those just above the average. The ones that can just make it into college.

An appeal is made to their natural counter culture rebelliousness and reinforced with you are so smart because you believe what I say. Then they get led by the nose the rest of their lives. Said nose is lifted in the air by the leash with a little whisper in their ear telling them how much superior they are to those others.

The smarter and dumber laugh at them. They have sense.

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.
OH, the bible.

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?

No, I didn't, I don't believe athists are antagonistic against any gods. Maybe towards the ones who believe in them.
