Isn't it sad that believers work so hard to remain enslaved to delusion and superstition? I supposed they are comforted by those chains that bind them.

Silly sheep scared to jump that tiny fence to freedom.

That seems rather arbitrary to me. Why that particular word and not the one before or after it?

And your hero Richard Dawkins is somehow different? His militant attitude, monotone emotionless visage, and relentless self-promotion makes him the Osama bin Laden of atheism.

Yet these personal characteristics you bestow on Dawkins can be found in thousands of pastors and tele-evangelists.

You do realise that Dawkins has a christmas tree and wishes people "Merry christmas" whereas when I'm in the US I often hear christians saying all this mealy mouthed "happy holidays" BS?

Grow up.

Pointless off topic nonsense. So anyways yes Christianity is really like a mafia style religion. Either do what the mob boss Jesus tells you to do or face the punishment that he created lol!

Very interesting leap! How did that work exactly? Wgats was your thought process?

You called my god a Mafia boss.
That upsets me because it makes sense.
I don't like atheists.
Dawkins is a very well known out spoken atheist.
I need to equivocate Dawkins to god...
So Dawkins being the atheist god makes him a mafia boss because i think he seems mean.....

I hope I'm way out of line.

By the way. "Yeah i follow a lunatic but so do you" does NOT help your case

Yet things continually improve, and the improvement is significant. So the whole "prophecy" nonsense proves to be nonsense more each passing year.
