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.

Ah so you finally admit the bible is not the word of some god. Apology accepted

Thank you

There are no verses that say what you are claiming the Bible and there are no verses which allude, imply, indicate, infer, insinuate, intimate, suggest or even remotely support the claim that "The bible (genesis) empowered believers to f**k the planet over."

Ans.
In fact you people are busy in gathering all the proofs any one need for existence of Creator.
But you are just "looking" and not "seeing" those proofs.
Just like cattle, who "looks" but seldom "sees"!!
Now, now....don't insult cattle, MUQ

Cattle have better vision, better hearing, and I'm absolutely sure they have more functioning brain cells than the evolution groupies on this thread.....

Some Rush, excellent Canadian band.
I(and 6 friends) have tickets for the O2 in London on the 24th of May to see Rush.

Cattle have been granted with facilities which might surpass humans in some specific areas, because of their environment and their survival.

But overall they are no match for humans, it is humans who lord over them and use them in any way they like.

If cattle had working brains, they would be lording over humans, should they not?

That is why Quran gives simile of Non Believers as Cattle, or even worse that them. Because cattle recognize their "masters" and these people do not recognize their Creator, despite being asked again and again.

Yes we do insult cattle in a way from that angle!!

Lucky lucky, I wish I had the money for that sort of thing. Money is tight at the moment as I am trying to focus on my debts.

Actually, you would be the cattle, for you have someone that "lords over" you, and that is your god.

It is curious, then, that the atheists on this forum write substantive, coherent, sell-organized, and original posts while you either cut and paste or write poorly organized posts that are long on assertion and short on support, outperforming you on every page as writers and as thinkers.

Not bad for "cattle," eh?

I'm taking my daughter to see them July 4th at Summerfest in Milwaukee!
There's a you-tube video of Rush playing "Closer to the Heart" in studio with Bubbles playing along.

Yeah... I'm in the same boat, but I promised my daughter that I'd take her and I can't see not following through.

Besides... it's Rush... outdoors... with 4th of July fireworks over the lake during the show. should be a blast!

For 'SHEEP' the religious have no equal!

Christians (Sunday at the church)

First saw them live in 1978... I had to hitchhike to Green Bay from home (about 20 miles) as I was too young to drive. I've been a fan ever since :)

Well, at least I'm lucky enough to have gone to the last Foo Fighters concert that took place in Montreal before the band announced its end.

Great point! Sadly I doubt he will respond or even read it. Spamming his scribd page seems to be all he's interested in not actual back and forth conversation.

Cool. I've never seen them live but heard they put on a good show

I was lucky enough to see Stevie Ray Vaughn (Alpine Valley, WI). He died (helicopter crash) after his show the following night

I used to love Rush!!

My first Rush experience was hearing "Finding My Way" on the Old Grey Whistle Test. Then they dipped off my radar until I picked up "Caress of Steel". I stayed with them until "Permanent Waves". Although I do have "Vapour Trails" and "Clockwork Angels".

Saw them on their first UK tour in 1977.

This is what you fail to understand and it is only 1 of 10!
The Ten Commandments – A simple logic problem
1. I am the LORD thy God, which have brought thee out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of bondage. Thou shalt have no other gods before me.
The first commandment has God, who describes himself as a "jealous God," proclaim by fiat that only he is to be worshipped. All other Gods are to be shunned, and the proper penalty for worshipping Gods other than the biblical God, as the Bible itself repeatedly makes clear, is summary execution, without trial or investigation.
"If your brother, your own mother's son, or your son or daughter, or your wife, or your closest friend, entices you in secret, saying,'Come let us worship other gods'- whom neither you nor your fathers has experienced... do not assent... but take his life. Let your hand be first against him to put him to death, and the hand of the rest of the people thereafter.
Stone him to death, for he sought to make you stray from the lord your god... Thus all of Israel will hear and be afraid, and such evil things will not be done again in your midst" (Deuteronomy 13:7-12).
As we shall see repeatedly, the biblical commandment not to kill cannot be taken as an absolute moral command, and was not even intended to be such by the author of Genesus. The Biblical God in fact commands the death penalty for a whole slew of offenses, such being homosexual (Lev. 20:13), being a witch (Ex. 22:18), saying bad things about Yahweh (Lev. 24:16), worshipping gods other than Yahweh (Deut. 17:2-5 RSV), not being a virgin on your wedding day (Deut. 22:20-21), striking one's parents or being a stubborn and rebellious son (Ex. 21:17 , Lev. 20:9), bestiality (Ex. 22:19, Lev. 20:15-16), working or performing prohibited activities on the seventh day of the week (Ex. 31:14-15; Num 15:36). Luckily for Hagar and Ishmael, Yahweh intervenes at the last minute. Moses was a murderer, and incited others to murder as well. After some members of the camp took to worshipping a God other than Yahweh, in this case a golden calf, Moses, speaking with Yahweh's authority, commanded his own people to kill each other in a wild, indiscriminate bloodbath.
"Then Moses stood in the gate of the camp, and said, Who is on the LORD's side? let him come unto me. And the children of Levi did according to the word of Moses: and there fell of the people that day about three thousand men" (32:26-28).
This is the same God who, according to Christian evangelists and apologists, is a morally perfect entity, providing the sole ground and justification for all human moral values.
. Thus the fundamentalist logic forces one to admit that accepted moral evils such as infanticide, gerontocide, genocide and slavery are actually morally perfect actions when their God performs them.
Go figure. I must have missed somethin in the
'translation' huh?
The biblical Yahweh, who commanded genocide against whole nations (DEU 7:1-5), who incited his own "special people" to kill one another in a senseless riot (EX 32:37-8), who SPECIFICALLY demanded the murder of infants (1SAM 15:3; EZ 9:6), who caused men to engage in cannibalism (EZEK 5:10; ISA 49:26), who commanded incest, and who killed someone for refusing to comply (GEN 38:8-10; DEU 25:5-6), who engaged in deception (1KINGS 22:23; 2 THESS 2:11), and who demanded bloody animal sacrifices by the dozen (LEV 1:12; EXO 29:15-18; EXO 29:36, etc., ad infinitum), is portrayed in a light which would make Saddam Hussein look like a saint by comparison.
And... the 'EVIDENCE' BELIEVERS SO OFTEN DEMAND... THERE IT IS!
Get out your verion of the Bibile... it could not possible lie could it?
Interesting. An inconvenient fact for sure.
