Perhaps you should read more widely on the subject... and not just from apologists of the Clinton administration and its support for genocide?

He should be on trial at the Hague... not Mladic and Karadzic.

Pretty much all wars are about politics and nationalism. In any case Washington has no business in other nations revolutions. To actually side with barbarism over...

All to divert attention away from Monica Lewinsky, Whitewater and the impeachment hearings.

Atheist sure have a hard time keeping your believes straight.
Yet alone just the definition of the word atheist.

Merriam - Webster

athe·ist\ˈā-thē-ist\
noun
: one who believes that there is no deity

"who believes". That's a positive assertion. Seeing as there is no proof of your belief It's FAITH.

Faith:
"Synonyms: devotion, piety, religion"

Ah yes Atheism is a Religion.

Have a nice day and don't forget to go to church.

Church, without God

“Stan Bradley likes Bible stories, admires Martin Luther and uses expressions such as 'heavens, no.'

The Lithopolis man is president of a local congregation and rarely misses a Sunday service. Occasionally, he goes to his wife's church instead.

For these and other reasons, Bradley considers himself religious.”

He is also an atheist.

continued:

“Like Bradley, some atheists participate in organized religion for its social and psychological benefits.”

continued:

“Churches are great places to find friends, support and youth education, so nonbelievers and believers alike join congregations to fill those needs, he said.

He has spoken to elderly and sick people who can no longer go to church and they say they most miss the feeling of community.

Recent research from Harvard University and the University of Wisconsin backs him up. It found that religious people tend to be happier than nonreligious people, not because of belief but because of the friendships found at church.”

“religious people tend to be happier than nonreligious people”[I have said this all along, and my posts are still on the board to confirm it. Now you hear it straight from the atheist, lol.]

If it is a belief with absolute certainty that you know the ultimate truth about creation... and a desire to spread the word... how is it not a religion?

That is what religion/myth are all about.

The word is "your" not "you".

Your pinky must be sore from all that capitalizing of FSM.

And Barnum had you pegged when he hung up the first Exit sign.

you didn't capitalize atheist, hypocrit.

i have never considered myself an atheist. if you need to label people, then it is up to you and only for your use so it doesn't matter to me what term you use.

freethinker works better for the non-cult members, though.

Sorry Charlie, but there is no truth to prayer. You, and all the Christians in the world are just deluding yourselves. If prayer actually worked, every person in the world would be Christian and our world would be totally different.

You are living in a dream world if you actually believe a God answers your (or anyone's) prayer.

don't know if you saw this earlier...

http://xkcd.com/808/

if religion did what it said it does, it would be the hit you described. yet it still has to compete with all the other cults. it has to change the word of its god to remain relevant to society lest it be overtaken by the other cults.

funny stuff!

You can't proof a negative.
Bt the way you phrase it.
No god=no god.
Now the onus is on you to proof that this is true or false.

Hello woodtick57. Yes I did see the cartoon and as usual it was right on. It always amazes me how the author of xkcd is able to boil down to just a few words something I have been trying to vocalize for months.

Yes, the apologists for Christianity are constantly reviewing and changing their understanding of the Bible so they can keep themselves and their dogma currant.

I am anxiously awaiting their apologia of the loss of the Adam and Eve story and not having someone to pin 'Original Sin' on. Whatever will Jesus do now??.:-)

The truth is...is if it didn't work, it would have been given up along long time ago...

Is every prayer answered?...no...why? Because if every prayer was answered it would become mundane, deteriorating into mere wishes for such things as money and power.

bohart, it is always up to the person making the positive claim to provide evidence for their claim.

So it is up to you to provide evidence for the existence of god if you want to claim that.

To be fair we have to provide evidence for evolution if challenged. Of course that does not mean that you can deny our evidence. There is a definition of scientific definition which is used for scientific debates. Using that definition there are mountains of evidence that support evolution.

I don't know what type of evidence you would use to support the existence of god.
