Please note that for this article "Atheism" also includes agnostics, deists, pagans, wiccans... in other words non-religious.

You will notice this is a statement of fact. And to be fact it is supported by evidence (see references below). Now you can have "faith" that this is not true, but by the very definition of faith, that is just wishful thinking.

Professor Flew taught Analytical Philosophy and Evidentialism at Oxford, both of which have been classified as sciences since Bertrand Russell's time and are required courses for anyone seeking a science degree.

Yeah. Whitehead's Theory of Actual Occasion, Jung's Theory of Synchronicity, Quantum Entanglement Theory, Gaia Theory....
Ah, you're a new ager. Why didn't you just say so?

Since 1996 .. it has been Science Against Evolution's objective to make the general public aware that the theory of evolution is not consistent with physical evidence and is no longer a respectable theory describing the origin and diversity of life ... When we talk about "evolution" .. we don't mean .. "any kind of change." .. Nor do we mean minor variations that result from natural selection ... We use the term "evolution" to mean ..“The doctrine that unguided natural forces caused chemicals to combine in such a way that life resulted .. and that all living things have descended from that common ancestral form of life.”........ http://www.ic r
Your source (liars for Jesus) openly admits it doesn't care about science and that evidence is irrelevant.

What's the "scientific theory" of IDC?

Communists were the "Real Atheists" that ruled the world and every one knows how cruel, barbaric and mass killers they were....of their own people usually.
Our Capitalist Atheists are only a bunch of loose thread types of fellows, who have no philosophy, no central thought and no idea of how an Atheist society should function.
They are united on a negative point, there is no god and there is no religion. Nothing positive in their places.
How can they create a civilization, with only Negaives? No one did that in the past.

Your god destroyed the world and is due to do the same thing again. Sorry bub, but there ain't getting around the fact that the entity described in the OT and NT is the biggest ahole in the entire multiverse.

They all self destructed out of vanity and greed.

Nice use of that quote.
The only problem is that it doesn't really apply to this situation.
You aren't "catching" anyone in any sense of the word.

Even he doesn't know. He means the genetic code, however the code (A,C,G,T) is an arbitrary concept developed by humans to help us describe the chemical compounds of DNA, a fact recorded by over six decades of medical research. He claims there is another "code", apparently invented by an invisible magical Jewish wizard, used to create all life on Earth. This might even be true.
He just never bothers to give us the scientific evidence.

You call atheists "closed minded", but you're so open minded that your brain has fallen out.

We're all stupid on some level. I am the first to admit I am stupid when it comes to ornithology or archeology or art history.

But theists are stupid on such a a colossal scale that they totally misconcieve their understanding of the very universe they live in.

That's the mental illness - it is all consuming.

Us civilized people think forcing little girls to be child brides is a serious query. You do approve of the practice yes?

This is an Islamic teaching is it not? Muhammad married a 6 year old child did he not?

Yes he did and you know it. This is a factual Islamic teaching and you know it.

Why do you fear to answer questions about your Islamic beliefs? I thought that was what you wanted to do?

Help us understand why you think the practice of Muslim child brides is acceptable.

Atheist Angelina Jolie pledges $200,000 to The Malala Fund.

This money will go to save and educate young girls age 5-12, who are currently forced into domestic work rather than attending school.

“Today I’m going to announce the happiest moment of my life and that is the first grant of the Malala fund," said Yousafzai. "We are going to educate 40 girls, and I want all of you to support the Malala fund and let us turn 40 girls into 40 million girls."

Ah ok.

You have a chip on your shoulder because you are actively against religious extremism and through your crusade against extremists you've ended up hating anyone who isn't a hard-core athiest.

Got it.

Your Church is now under Public Reclamation and is declared an Open Community Space

The recent Criminal Conviction of Pope Benedict and the heads of the Catholic,
Anglican and United Church has caused your church property to be forfeited and reclaimed by and for victims of church violence

This is your opportunity to do what God and Christ require: Justice, Truth and
Compassion
Dear parishioners,

Greetings and welcome to this public space, reclaimed by the people and the victims of child rape, genocide and other crimes committed in your name and with your money.

By order of The International Common Law Court of Justice, Pope Benedict and other Catholic and Protestant church leaders were sentenced to arrest and imprisonment on February 25, 2013 because of their crimes against children, and for conspiring to commit and conceal Genocide. The Court Order and evidence of their crimes is found at www.itccs.org .

This Court also ordered the seizure of the property and assets of your church as partial compensation to the millions of people harmed and killed by your church. This church property is now declared to be public reclaimed space and is re-consecrated to be of service to the homeless and the poor, and to all who seek justice.

Under international law, you must cease and desist from financially supporting this church lest you be indicted as accessories to Crimes against Humanity. Your church openly protects child rapists among its clergy. You are morally and legally forbidden from participating in this crime.

Your own Bible compels you to come out from evil doers and false churches, and live justly, truthfully, and with compassion for victims of oppression.

We invite you to rejoin humanity and the commands of God and Christ, and help us disestablish this church corporation and others twisted by centuries of blood, crime and corruption. This is not the House of God - for 'God' does not harm the innocent.
