Same old shit deserves the same old response:

If there were any cogent arguments for a god-centered universe, we would, need no extraneous links or spurious videos to put them forth. They could be stated plainly in a single post or a series of them right here on this forum. I have yet to read any.

Atheism isn't based, you see, on the strength of science, whether biological, physical, or astronomical, however fascinating those subjects may be. No, it's a response to the weakness of all arguments for that god-centered universe, arguments that rely on the gullibility of the listener more than on flawless logic based on demonstrable reality.

A person can be completely unaware of the principals of science and still see that ultimately, the reason always given is "Because I say so" or because some unimpeachable authority supports a theistic world view. Einstein is often cited, for instance, and even if those assertions weren't based on misunderstanding and misinterpretation, citing him as a source means nothing unless the words themselves stand on their own no matter who says them.

I have no interest in shaking anyone's faith. Others can live their intellectual/emotional/spiritu al lives as they please. But if anyone wants to change my mind about religion, I will require compelling logic and evidence that meet MY standards.

It is not enough that you find your own arguments to be persuasive.

You are not a skeptic.

I am.

What was the question?

Was it in the video?

It was difficult for me to read the black lettering on a chick and egg with a dark grey background.

This sums up exactly what people of faith can't understand. Their minds are far too closed to think outside of their tiny box. It is quite astonishing the levels of stubbornness they portray.

They also seem to think it is a personal attack on them when you question their faith. Like I just punched them in the face. I really wish they'd stop the propaganda and just live their own life how they see fit.

I agree-- I tried to watch that-- I really did. I could not read the thing, black-on-black letters is simply not readable.

I noticed they disabled the comments-- they were afraid of FACTS, obviously.

LOL!

Watch that again a couple more times.

Look at it from a marketing point of view.

In an odd coincidence, I felt the urge to light up a cigarette at the end.

On your last paragraph! Why do atheists ridicule Christians? When we talk about Jesus, all one simply has to do is just say "no" or "I'd rather not talk about it." You say, "...live their own lives as they see fit." Why do atheists try to take Jesus out of everything? I wanna see displays of nativities at Christmas, hear about Jesus in the stores, etc. Atheists want Jesus to be taken out of everything. Christians don't! Why can't you be satisfied to let Christians have freedom of speech?
I normally do not come over here---I was just looking for a certain poster or 2. I will most likely not read your response. I do want you to know that God loves all people, there is a Heaven to gain and a Hell to shun, and I hope to meet you in Heaven one day. I'll kindly get out of your way on this forum---for now. I can't swear I'll never come back over here---but I may well not. Last time I looked over here might have been a year and a half ago. Jesus is real, and I hope you come to believe in Him. I don't intend any insults toward you and your friends. Good day!

It is kind of insulting for you to say everything you just did, especially towards the end. You know I am atheist yet you still choose to tell me how the world works. That's insulting my intelligence.

You can have your god where ever you want him. I don't much care. It is when that ideology is forced on me that I have problems with. Christmas has nothing to do with jesus, it's a pagan holiday adopted by catholics/christians. Also, seperation of church and state. Your god should be nowhere near the government, however it is and that is against everyone's rights.

I am not familiar with this god being out of christmas crap. Everytime christmas comes around all you see is relations to jesus or some other religion, such as judaism. Don't forget, your right to speech is everyone's right. Not just the religious.

So, you insist on your freedom to preach at atheists, but yell "persecution!" when atheists ask questions or point out illogic? Then, you say that you come here to preach, but have no intention of reading any response. No doubt out of fear of seeing any facts that do not comport with your preaching. I wish I could say I was surprised, but drive-by christians are a dime a dozen in this forum.
