Then you don't understand Christian thinking,
That's easy, regard all atheists as fools without ever having met them, pretend to be polite when you do, and then secretly judge them when their backs are turned.
That is your mighty christian morals.

I would say this is likely the most accurate thing I know you have ever said .
This single statement can cover an expanse greater than measure.
And it reflects something laRGER , than life.

Skeptic, I meet you and others on here and I'm not polite.

What's your beef with me?

Got your message. Is that "we" that has my IP you and your gerbil, a Topix atheist gang, or the intelligent people of the world like you?

Very very well said.

<quoted text>So this provides the perfect example of how lacking in education you are. Your entire concept of reality is what you made up, nothing in it challenges your fears, nothing in it challenges your mind. You have made existence itself meaningless by replacing it with religious superstition instead of attempting to study it, attempting to understand it.

Several societies were by far more civilized and intelligent than the Christian/Roman/ Greek one at the time.

Not to mention humanism doesn't say to bring non humanists before them and chop off their head as Jesus did.

So as usual your example fails.

No sweat we are used to that by now Dave, you are after all here for our amusement.

<quoted text>Your assumption is that Greeks and Romans originated such, That is only because those were the writings that survived the times containing such that became part of Western education.

Many of man's perceptions are common and independently arrived at. Your education trains you to think in a linear fashion about such things.

Intelligence in man is proclaimed to be universal. Thus the logics and perceptions are apt to be similar. The Greeks and Romans were a small minority of the world's population.

A bush man squatting in the dirt is as capable of deep thoughts as a collector of previous recorded thoughts in a university. Perhaps even deeper. Less baggage to sort through.

It is apparent most Topix atheist on here don't either. Blatant displays of emotional reaction to the perversions of ideas by those who use it for personal advancement, ignoring the underlying messages. Humanism and every other social/religious/political thought suffers from the same thing. Charlatans and demagogues. Topix atheists just jumped from one group to another. Hardly "free thinkers". Emotional reactionists. Putty in the hands of those that know how to mold them.
Those typical topix atheists provide tons of entertainment.

Ya I guess you should have researched the different Tzars a little better before making your 28th screen name. They made Hitler and Stalin look like jokes when it comes to mass murder and genocide.

That's why your screen name cracks us up so much!

Classic Christian stupidity on display!

Butchy, as I write this there are 947 people logged onto ALL of the Top Stories forums. Once in while it may go over 2000 if there is a real hot topic going.

There aren't many on here. Your atheist army is a little sparse.

However, I am pleased that I can provide you and your Johnson some amusement. Perhaps if you changed the batteries in it you wouldn't need me so much.

Also, in English, it's either "Tsar" or "Czar".

Why is that justified?
If you really are atheistic, then nihilism is your ultimate philosophical destination, how does antagonism towards anyone make sense with that in mind?
. I wasn't justifying anything, but if that's what you want to think, and it makes you feel better go for it. I don't hold any antagonism. I just believe organized religion has turned a lot of good people bad, and is not good when it has control of any government. My reasons are in the past, and the Middle East today. One more thing I'm not a atheist, I believe in a deity just not the same as organized religion .

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.
. Proof of a deity is personal experiences, it's not the kind of proof you can put your finger on. Sure there are other ways to look at the proof, but to the person who experienced it, it is all the proof they need to believe

That is not proof, and every follower of all the millions of other gods have that same thing. This means, your god is a myth unless you can provide some verifiable evidence.

Not getting that proof has made you very angry . Why is that?
Perhaps you are upset that your atheism isn't fulfilling your needs?
Perhaps your faith in atheism has been stricken down with doubt? Or is it you are just a bitter person as I've suspected all along?
No atheist has EVER answered my question: "Why do you want proof of God?"
Faith is what Christians rely on to believe in God. Asking a Christian to provide that proof is silliness on your part.
I think the question should be , "why are atheists too weak-willed to rely on faith?"
. Im not a atheist but i can answer your question. atheist need some kind of hard evidence before the can believe in thinks, and find it hard to understand why others dont. What's the name of this threat again . Response to your last question.
