Truth eventually prevails. Which is why your outmoded beliefs are in trouble.
And yet your group to date, are in the minority.

Always remember that both atheism and theism are both belief systems.

I went back looking for the post to see if I had actually made an error. I was unable to find it.

But if you really look at your post vs my post everyone can see I've always been correct and you've always been wrong so I felt no more need to research this any further. ;)

So you're implying that the age of a scripture is a test of its truth?
Then how about the Bhagavad Gita?
It has survived for five thousand years.
According to that premise, the Bhagavad Gita would also have to be true.
I can't wait to see what you change the subject to this time.

You yourself are a positive assertion atheist. That my boy is a believe.

You are a perfect example of an Atheist that DOES believe there is no God.

Not an atheist that has an absence of all believe.

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

Point proven!

Not believing in a God is a belief system, because ruling that out, is just impossible( not possible).

DOLT!

What does that have to do with the disagreement between the Catholic Bible and the Protestant Bible?
And what does that have to do with the disagreement over the Apocrypha?

From: The Columbus Dispatch:

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.”
http://www.dispatch.com/content/stories/faith...
“religious people tend to be happier than nonreligious people”."
That's organization and money making.
Anecdotal evidence.

And re: "...religious people tend to be happier than nonreligious people"?

I'm happier when I can sleep in on Sunday mornings.

Plus many studies find that NON-religious people are more intelligent than religious people.

Read through my earlier post.
Like i said, God is one, it was the Hebrews that discovered who this true God is, others do worship him through gods and goddesses.
