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.

Evoution is a fact, if you have evidence otherwise, why not present it instead of denying the facts? Why doe your cult enjoy lying so much?
What is respectful about a creationist cult that regards all atheists as fools and claims that all scientists are wrong?
Make no mistake, you're just simple liars who love to play victim when challenged to prove their rubbish that you lie about.

Yeah, Jesus Zombie.

It is Christainity which practices the old Pagan rituals of cannibalism, the eating of the dead human flesh of one who was admired or honored.

When a leader or a warrior died, the Pagans ate his flesh to assume his strengths.

Next, the drinking of blood is vampirism, designed to awaken one from death, and grant immortality.

And will you arise from your grave and join your Zombie Jesus an admired and beloved leader, to live forever?

Christains are really Pagans, Cannibals, Vampires and wanta be Zombies!

I am not an evolutionist. In fact, I know almost nothing about it.

I am an animal, a primate, and a human. It is what all humans are, you can't escape it. It is our classification, we must fall into one of these three categories, "animal, vegetable or mineral". If you look up the word's actual meanings, they may be quite different than you now believe.

Now if you want respect for your beliefs, you would have to get some that are less insane. In the holy buybull, you have a god who doesn't want any man with less than perfect danglies(genitalia), coming near his altars.
You have a god who when angry, will make you eat your children.
You have a god who thinks that, insects have only four legs.
You have a god who is made happy when two hundred foreskins are given to him.
You have a god who loves the smell of burning flesh, and he does sometimes require that people be offered as sacrifice to him.
And the only happiness in the entire buybull seems to be the return of a prodigal son and bashing babies heads against rocks.

You will garner no respect in these threads.

Courtesy can be expected but respect has to be earned. The fact that we are primates gives us the right to call people primates. You cannot stigmatize a pot for calling a kettle black! Whether it sticks, stains or simply bounces off ... reality is what we sling here and you'd be surprised how few people want to get any on them.

Liar and fools? Debatable. Ignorant? No doubt.

<having said that I got to thinking ...

the facts are readily accessible and crystal clear ... to remain ignorant in such a climate takes a willful act. To be willfully ignorant is foolish. Likewise, to know the facts but preach the fantasy ... that makes one a liar. Skeptic is harsh sometimes but remains a Truth-sayer. Truth-sayers always sound mean>

LOL Evolution theory says dinosaurs sprouted wings and became a new species called birds. If you're saying humans can't also sprout wings and evolve into a new species, it's you who really doesn't understand evolution theory, bubba.

That view of respect is funny LOL, in my culture you dont have to fully respect a man for him/her get a little respect. So again my friend, whether one believes evolution is true or not, you cant go around calling people primates. would a chick be impressed if you said her primate features are very pleasing to the eye? LOL

Evolution theory says certain dinosaurs evolved wings and took advantage of an unexploited (by dinosaurs) ecological niche ... the air. Human Beings are perfected adapted to their environment and where they are not, they adapted the environment to suit them (thanks to their highly evolved brains). We are unlikely to "sprout wings" except in Heaven, of course, when we become angels.

At the most basic levels of Human interaction, respect and common courtesies would be indistinguishable (I would think). If she were an Anthropologist or something she might!

It's you who doesn't understand, we have already invented our flying machines and therefore we have thwarted any need for humans to spend a few million years on evolving wings.

We?
Those angels are really vampires. Seriously, one is no more believable than the other, and the Christains are at least following the protocol to become vampires. They drink the blood of their "risen from the dead" Rabbi, and then they too will come back from the dead, to "live?" an eternal and immortal life.

In John 6:48-58 Christians are required to eat Jesus' body and drink his body to be saved. This is also mentioned in the OT. Psalm 16:4 "Their sorrows shall be multiplied that hasten after another god: their drink offerings of blood will I not offer, nor take up their names into my lips" It's a sin to even speak the name of another god. This is probably what happened to the body, they stole it and ate it.

Ancient Man was so anxious to "sprout wings" the 'bots had to invent Angels!

First off ... nobody hates religion! Without religion you wouldn't have ... er ... we would need ... hmmmm ... it would be really bad because ... uh ... <somebody help me out here>

Second ... Jesus, the MAN himself said "this is my blood you drink, this is my body you eat" ... so, I think we understand that just fine!

Third ... The Catholics say some magic words over crackers and grape juice (wine? I know the Baptists use grape juice, they being so much less sinful than the Catholics)... literally and magically transforming them to REAL FLESH AND BLOOD OF JESUS!!! And if you don't believe me just ask one of 'em.

Those are real facts!

Jesus said to eat Jesus, not God. Did you read the scripture reference? That is what it says. Do you know what communion represents? You are symbolically eating the body of Jesus and drinking his blood. God does not approve of human sacrifice or cannibalism.
