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.

God is not a "Thing". There is every things else created in Universe, except God.
You cannot apply rules for "Creations to the Creator".
Big questions of all Atheists, which they think as "No religious person having answer for" melts itself.
It is a baseless question. The Creation process stops when it reaches God.
He is the only Uncreated being in the world, He was present before start of time and He shall be presented after end of time.
Time, space, stars, galaxies, vegetable, animal, human, angels , every thing we see and do not see in this universe is His creations.
Well said, MUQ

Sorry, but if you want to re-write history, it's best to wait till the people alive during the period you are revising have passed away. Too many of us have 'grown up' along with Islamic Terrorism. Bottom line is ... you indiscriminately murder innocent people to make a political statement. Too bad the 'political statement' you make is drowned out by the horror and mayhem created. In this same period, we've seen Israel constantly attacked and goaded. I think they've shown admirable restraint. Any response to an enemy cowardly enough to use 'human shields' and launch their ridiculous pin-prick attacks from populated neighborhoods is bound to result in collateral damage. Of course, that's the point, isn't it?
And you claim you aren't getting paid to peddle Israel's Islamophobia propagada garbage.....

Bwaaaaahahahahahahahahahahhaha hahahaha

Mark 16:17-18, which says, "And these signs shall follow them that believe; In my name shall they cast out devils; they shall speak with new tongues; they shall take up serpents; and if they drink any deadly thing, it shall not hurt them: they shall lays hands on the sick, and they shall recover."

There is no such thing as a Christian or a believer. We are all born Atheists and then some of us believe the lies our mamma and poppa tell us about God and Jesus. But it is all pretend. The Bible clearly states what a believer can do and yet no believer is going to show us his faith by drinking a quart of Draino. Believers will make up all kinds of excuses to avoid facing the fact that they are not a real and true believer but instead a liar. A liar for Jesus and God. We do not live in a Christian nation, we live in a nation of Atheists and liars.

Mark 16:17-18 is the proof that there are no believers.

Yes it does because earlier you where saying nothing can exist without god meaning everything in our natural world was created by a god who lived outside our natural world thus making him supernatural you can deny it all you want but you set up the scenario for making him supernatural. Yes a first cause of the big bang not a creator or god, your killing your own argument because you where just saying no cause and effect existed before the big bang now your saying it points to a cause.
If God is not the First Cause--what is, bubba?

Can't be gravity because sub-atomic particles are not affected by gravity. In fact, sub-atomic particles rarely operate according to Newtonian physics. They operate according to their own laws--laws our poor primitive store of scientific knowledge is yet unable to fully comprehend...but we're working on it.

For now we know that one sub-atomic particle can appear in two places, pass through what we think of as "solid" objects, magically disappear and then re-appear--and we have no clue how they do this or why or where they are when we can't see them. Another magical thing we've observed with entangled particles is that they are somehow able to communicate with each other even when they are separated by distances halfway around the world. The world of quantum physics is far more magical and mysterious than any religion man has created, bubba.

In Matthew 2:13-14 God sends one of angels to Joseph in a dream and tells him to flee with his family to Egypt.

This is most extraordinary in view of Isaiah 31:1 Woe to them that go down to Egypt for help; and stay on horses, and trust in chariots, because [they are] many; and in horsemen, because they are very strong; but they look not unto the Holy One of Israel, neither seek the LORD!

Here we have a God who has made it very clear that Egypt is no place for Hebrews and they shouldn't go near that country. The main problem seems to be that once there, Hebrews would be chased by hordes of warriors on horses and others driving them into the ground with their chariots.

God then shows an amazing weakness. Apparently he has no jurisdiction in Egypt because the Egyptian people don't believe in him.

This is good news for all of us. All you have to do to escape the horror of the Bible God is not to believe in him.

The Egyptians had not changed their religious views when the fictitious Jesus was said to have been an infant. So God still wouldn't have been able to protect Joseph and his family, yet he tells them that Egypt is their best chance of survival.

This is all very odd, not just because of the warning in Isaiah, but an earlier piece of godly advice:

Genesis 26:2 And the LORD appeared unto him, and said, Go not down into Egypt; dwell in the land which I shall tell thee of:

Despite the fact that in Hosea 12:9 and the previous chapter, God says he is an Egyptian God, he maintains that Egypt is not the place to be for Hebrews.

Oh, but wait on a moment. What is this?

Genesis 46:3 And he said, I [am] God, the God of thy father: fear not to go down into Egypt; for I will there make of thee a great nation:

Now God is waving the flag for Egypt.

How can anyone believe in such a mixed up God?

There is no "First Cause". However for those who assert the existence of God: who created this alleged being God? The Universe exists to maintain itself. No invisible sky fairy is needed or required, in fact, what would such a thing do?

Over five thousand years ago, Moses said to the children of Israel ,
"Pick up your shovels, mount your asses and camels, and I will lead
you to the Promised Land."

Nearly 75 years ago,(when Welfare was introduced) Roosevelt said,
"Lay down your shovels, sit on your asses, and light up a Camel, this
is the Promised Land."

Today, Congress has stolen your shovel, taxed your asses, raised the
price of Camels and mortgaged the Promised Land!

I was so depressed last night thinking about Health Care Plans, the
economy, the wars, lost jobs, savings, Social Security, retirement
funds, etc .... I called a Suicide Hotline.

I had to press 1 for English.

I was connected to a call center in Pakistan . I told them I was suicidal.

They got excited and asked if I could drive a truck......

Time as we experience it here on the earth in this Universe is a self contained structure, it is not self-contradictory as you would deceive us into believing. Something existed before time and something continues to exist where time does not.

Having only your triune brain you are limited in your ability to comprehend what has existed [before time as we know it began] and as it continues to exist outside our time continuum.

You are an incomplete and unfinished being. Your possibilities are so much more than this puny triune brain of yours can comprehend.

Sufi Islam is much older than either Judaism or Christianity, and the other sects of Islam didn't borrow anything from either Judaism or Christianity. No "Jew" or "Christian" wrote any of the original texts of the Bible or any other ancient wisdom literature from the Middle East.

Astrophysicists, mathematicians and cosmologists must have a 'time zero' with the Universe unwinding, like some enormous mechanism, towards it's inevitable and predictable 'heat death'. The Universe thus becomes amicable to their formulae, analysis and understanding. Infinities of something 'unfathomable' must exist outside of these boundary events. Maybe your god is hiding there. Maybe that's where the really interesting stuff happens. Maybe there's an infinite Multiverse of which we are a tiny and transitory particle. Who knows.
