TOPIX ATHEISTS!!! DO NOT READ!!!
Thanks Dave that was good reading.

Here something else TOPIX ATHEISTS!!! DO NOT READ!!!

Last words of famous atheists:

Caesar Borgia: "While I lived, I provided for everything but death; now I must die, and am unprepared to die."

Thomas Hobbs political philosopher "I say again, if I had the whole world at my disposal, I would give it to live one day. I am about to take a leap into the dark."

Thomas Payne the leading atheistic writer in American colonies: "Stay with me, for God's sake; I cannot bear to be left alone , O Lord, help me! O God, what have I done to suffer so much? What will become of me hereafter? "I would give worlds if I had them, that The Age of Reason had never been published. 0 Lord, help me! Christ, help me!…No, don't leave; stay with me! Send even a child to stay with me; for I am on the edge of Hell here alone. If ever the Devil had an agent, I have been that one."

Sir Thomas Scott, Chancellor of England "Until this moment I thought there was neither a God nor a hell. Now I know and feel that there are both, and I am doomed to perdition by the just judgment of the Almighty."

David Hume, atheist philosopher famous for his philosophy of empiricism and skepticism of religion, he cried loud on his death bed "I am in flames!" It is said his "desperation was a horrible scene".

Napoleon Bonaparte, the French emperor, and who, like Adolf Hitler, brought death to millions to satisfy his greedy, power-mad, selfish ambitions for world conquest: "I die before my time, and my body will be given back to the earth. Such is the fate of him who has been called the great Napoleon. What an abyss between my deep misery and the eternal kingdom of Christ!”

Sir Francis Newport, the head of an English Atheist club to those gathered around his deathbed: "You need not tell me there is no God for I know there is one, and that I am in His presence! You need not tell me there is no hell. I feel myself already slipping. Wretches, cease your idle talk about there being hope for me! I know I am lost forever! Oh, that fire! Oh, the insufferable pangs of hell!…Oh, that I could lie for a thousand years upon the fire that is never quenched, to purchase the favor of God and be united to Him again. But it is a fruitless wish. Millions and millions of years will bring me no nearer the end of my torments than one poor hour. Oh, eternity, eternity forever and forever!, Oh, the insufferable pangs of Hell!”

"Strawberry" Pinson, a good Christian man, right before he died:

"I'ma sayin air's at least 3 coons upinat tree, somebody me uh shotgun!"

Then he took a big breath and died.

Holy crap...do you really think if they gave a detailed explanation of where time came from that you would even accept it??? This who thread is not about where time came from. Atheism is not a religion...it's a lack thereof. It does not take faith to not have a belief in something.

If you are arguing for and prosyletizing it, then it is a religion.

There is no other reason for your passion about it.

Creationists ALWAYS, ask - What was before the Big Bang? Einstein already proved that energy or matter cannot be created nor destroyed. So, clearly, whatever is here, has always been here (or there). My personal belief is that we devolved from some black hole EXPLOSION/IMPLOSION. In the entire universe (including the unkn own, where we came from, "for starters", I would estimate there are UPWARDS of 1 Googol Black holes. Comments?

I do argue for anything that does not resemble religion because religion likes to try to convert everyone that they can, and if they can't convert you then they try to force you. I however am not an atheist myself. Atheists would love for people to come to their senses, but as far as trying to (convert) people no...there is nothing for them to convert you to. The only thing that they would like for you to see is the evidence that is provided for you to learn from, and the open mindedness to let people live their lives the way they see fit without wanting to push a religion into every aspect of their lives. I have a passion for humanity and people's freedom to live how they choose as long as they harm no one else. As should you.

OK, how do I contact your god? Presently, I am at a total loss. I am afraid that when I die I will descend to HELL. What are my specific steps to avoid such a damning doom. I have been good for most of my life. I was in Vietnam where I did some very, very, bad things. Aside from that, what do you suggest that I do in order to right things? I know of convicted murderers who are now Jesuit priests. What do you suggest for me, personally?
