Sep 15, 2011 Full story: The Orange County Register 1,872

Members of a grassroots atheist group say they will tear out pages of the Bible at the Huntington Beach pier Saturday to point out what they say is immorality in the book many Christians base their faith on.

When a Christhole can't even copy and paste right on here it makes me wonder why they think they could actually debate.

Master copy and pasting first ok?

Sheesh!

Dr Alister McGrath, who earned two doctorates at Oxford University, one in molecular biophysics, the other in theology, described his spiritual and intellectual journey to the Christian faith in this way:
“At Oxford – to my surprise – I discovered Christianity. It was the intellectually most exhilarating and spiritually stimulating thing I could ever hope to describe – better than chemistry, a wonderful subject that I had thought to be the love of my life and my future career. I went on to gain a doctorate for research in molecular biophysics from Oxford, and found that immensely exciting and satisfying. But I knew I had found something better – like the pearl of great price that Jesus talks about in the Gospel, which is so beautiful and precious that it overshadows everything. It was intellectually satisfying, imaginatively engaging, and aesthetically exciting.” 1

They come in here and get destroyed as expected.

I must confess I dig how much power we exercise over them seeing as how they are believers who live on the Atheism forums! Lol!

I don't know what book you're reading, but the Bible doesn't teach hate. Some people hate.
Your bible teaches the hatred of unbelievers, for starters :

[1] "The fool says in his heart,'There is no God.' They are corrupt, their deeds are vile; there is no one who does good" - Psalm 14:1

According to this piece of hate speech, there is not one good unbeliever. Not one of us does good ever. According to your holy scriptures, those who doubt are all corrupt and vile.

Here's a little more love from your blessed book:

[2] "But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone." - Revelation 21:8

Now we learn that doubters are abominable, the moral equivalent of murderers and whoremongers, and fit to be dropped while still conscious into a pit of burning fire to suffer forever.

What would you expect the ramifications of such hate speech to be?

[3] "No, I dont know that atheists should be considered as citizens, nor should they be considered as patriots. This is one nation under God. George H. W. Bush

Bigotry Worst Against Atheists - The Ultimate Outsiders? New Report Casts Atheists "Others" Beyond Morality And Community In America

March 25, 2006

"A new study ... has found that Americans perceive Atheists as the group least likely to embrace common values and a shared vision of society.

"Researchers concluded: "Americans rate atheists below Muslims, recent immigrants, gays and lesbians and other minority groups in 'sharing their vision of American society.' Atheists are also the minority group most Americans are least willing to allow their children to marry."

"Disturbingly, Atheists are "seen as a threat to the American way of life by a large portion of the American public," despite being only 3% of the U.S. population. Edgell said that Atheists "play the role that Catholics, Jews and communists have played in the past" in that we provide "a symbolic moral boundary to membership in American society."

This is what your little book of love teaches, and the consequence of that, which make our lives more difficult and more dangerous. We have every right to push back as hard as we can in an effort to cripple that.

What's it to you who I choose to worship?
Fr the reasons I just gave, it is in our interest to see that there are as few of you as possible, and to argue passionately against faith and religion to help accomplish that goal.

Once your church has shrunk down to a size where it has no voice or influence on the lives of nonbelievers - what I call its Druidization [1]- we'll likely never think about it again. Do you think about the Druids? Me, neither.

All you did was simply rephrase the definition of atheism. A synonym for belief is faith. Look it up. Are we really gonna split hairs here?
Religious faith is not synonymous with evidence based belief. They are radically different:

[1] Religious faith is absolute certitude based on a guess or a wish. It lacks supporting evidence, and is refractory to contradictory evidence.

[2] Evidence based belief is trust or confidence based on prior experience, such as observation or experimentation. It is less than certain, the degree of assurance being commensurate with the quality and quantity of evidence supporting the belief. And unlike religious faith, it is amenable to modification if conflicting data arises.

They sound the same to me. Belief in a higher power is a personal view.

Religious truth is multifaceted. It is comprised of science, logic, philosophy, history, ethics, and experience, all mixed together. It is, in a sense, a different kind of knowing
"Are there things in the Universe that we cannot know in the usual way of observing and measuring, but that we can know in some other way -- intuition, revelation, mad insight? If so, how can you know that what you know in these non-knowing ways is really so? Anything you know without knowing, others can know only through your flat statement without any proof other that 'I know!' All this leads to such madness that I, for one, am content with the knowable. That is enough to know." -- Isaac Asimov

Oh, now you've done it-- you've gone and confused him with two different uses of the word "belief".

We can't trust the way some people use it, as when they pick a preferred definition out of many and attempt to impose that meaning on one who says it's not what he meant. Plus, it's always a little behind the times.

That is correct. America says it trusts in a god, for example. How has that been working out for it?

Have you read Genesis? Have you seen the Big Bang theory or the Theory of Evolution?

Have you seen the archeological data that tells us that there was no Egyptian captivity, no exodus, and no battle of Jericho as described in your bible: http://freethought.mbdojo.com/archeology.html

Belief, faith, what's the difference?
Both are pretty words to describe someone lying to themselves about actual reality.
Mental insanity, in other words.
And yeah-- we really are gonna "split hairs". It's necessary when dealing with hategodbots such as yourself.
Belief can be rational if it is backed up by proof. For example, I believe that my Mother loves me an I could trust her personal information. That belief is based on the fact that she has showed love and care for me and my siblings. However I would not extend that belief to random strangers on the street. Godbots choose to create a life and to portray as the truth something they cannot prove is real.

Religious beliefs (or lack thereof) aside, you're an asshole. A narcissist. And a bully. So we can't trust the dictionary now either? We can't trust our emotions because they mislead us. We can't trust in a higher power because that's all in our head. We can't trust the vast array of scientific as well as archeological research which proves the Bible's accuracy as a historical document. We can't trust educated people who admit that you can neither prove nor disprove a person's belief in religion. Cause anyone who opposes or questions atheism is a superstitious idiot and a whacko. Or is that just me? Who the hell can we trust? Maybe we're all just fucked. Not in a good way either. So what if I misspelled the word moot. Who the hell gives a shit? Trust me when I say it won't happen again. I honestly could care less about what a hategodbot is.
1-One should not put too much trust on emotions
2-The higher power is in your head.
3-The research says that some of the stories may be true, but it does not support the bible's claim to be a "holy book."
4-We are not obliged to show evidence that your god does not exist, you are obliged to show evidence that he does.

Many times people become atheists because they encountered something in life that hurt them and blame God. For instance Skeptic lives in the basement at mommy's home and prayed to win the lottery and he didn't. So he blames God for that. Of course the loss of loved ones also brings them to change. The will argue burden of proof, straw man, etc... And go out if their way to destroy ones faith.
