Unlike us atheists we celebrate our strength to desire the unvarnished truth over a comforting lie. We tend to self lead rather than have a need to follow.

True, true. Faith IS a weakness after all.

It's also demonstrative of an extremely lazy mind.

After all? How much thought does it TAKE to say, "goddidit"?

Answer: none at all.

In fact? The less thought, the better "goddidit" sounds...

How about these ideas?

Suggestions of what we can all get behind now to wrestle the control of our country out of the hands of the 1% and place it squarely with the 99% majority.

1. Eradicate the Bush tax cuts for the rich and institute new taxes on the wealthiest Americans and on corporations, including a tax on all trading on Wall Street (where they currently pay 0%).

2. Assess a penalty tax on any corporation that moves American jobs to other countries when that company is already making profits in America. Our jobs are the most important national treasure and they cannot be removed from the country simply because someone wants to make more money.

3. Require that all Americans pay the same Social Security tax on all of their earnings (normally, the middle class pays about 6% of their income to Social Security; someone making $1 million a year pays about 0.6%(or 90% less than the average person). This law would simply make the rich pay what everyone else pays.

4. Reinstate the Glass-Steagall Act, placing serious regulations on how business is conducted by Wall Street and the banks.

5. Investigate the Crash of 2008, and bring to justice those who committed any crimes.

6. Reorder our nation’s spending priorities (including the ending of all foreign wars and their cost of over $2 billion a week). This will re-open libraries, reinstate band and art and civics classes in our schools, fix our roads and bridges and infrastructure, wire the entire country for 21st century internet, and support scientific research that improves our lives..

7. Join the rest of the free world and create a single-payer, free and universal health care system that covers all Americans all of the time.

8. Immediately reduce carbon emissions that are destroying the planet and discover ways to live without the oil that will be depleted and gone by the end of this century.

9. Require corporations with more than 10,000 employees to restructure their board of directors so that 50% of its members are elected by the company’s workers. We can never have a real democracy as long as most people have no say in what happens at the place they spend most of their time: their job.(For any U.S. businesspeople freaking out at this idea because you think workers can’t run a successful company: Germany has a law like this and it has helped to make Germany the world’s leading manufacturing exporter.)

10. We, the people, must pass three constitutional amendments that will go a long way toward fixing the core problems we now have. These include:

a) A constitutional amendment that fixes our broken electoral system by 1) completely removing campaign contributions from the political process; 2) requiring all elections to be publicly financed; 3) moving election day to the weekend to increase voter turnout; 4) making all Americans registered voters at the moment of their birth; 5) banning computerized voting and requiring that all elections take place on paper ballots.

b) A constitutional amendment declaring that corporations are not people and do not have the constitutional rights of citizens. This amendment should also state that the interests of the general public and society must always come before the interests of corporations.

c) A constitutional amendment that will act as a “second bill of rights” as proposed by President Frankin D. Roosevelt: that every American has a human right to employment, to health care, to a free and full education, to breathe clean air, drink clean water and eat safe food, and to be cared for with dignity and respect in their old age.
What can I say? Your ideas are nothing less than brilliant.

Alas, the Party of Rich, Old, White MEN (Republicans) is too firmly entrenched by the wealth-class.

Indeed... the word godbot, or god-robot, has become an internet meme.
It refers to the fact that god-botherers act exactly like little mindless drones, repeating the same old sh7t day after day.
And said sh7t isn't even modern-- it's rehashed crap from the slightly-less mindless shills who pathetically attempt to "explain" the serious and fatal flaws in the various "holy" books. Bible Apologetics.
Sad, really-- that they feel that apologizing for the mistakes, contradictions, and outright lies in their book will help.
It won't.
To qualify as divine? The book in question would have to BE divine--and self-evidently so.
So divine, that there wouldn't even be a question about it's divinity--no one would EVER need to explain-- just reading it would instantly, and automatically indicate to the reader it's self-evident divine status.
You know.
Kind of like Harry Potter--only much-more so. Divinely more so.
THAT kind of divine.
Sad, really-- these god-robots, these godbots, keep on playing their broken programs, stuck in an infinite GOTO loop...
If there is a God, and you are proved wrong?
You may be forced to watch Fox for eternity.

They sure have a lot of "Free Stuff" buttons. I clicked on the first one and was pleasantly surprised my anti-virus program didn't go crazy.

Jesus Christ! They have a "The most realistic combat simulator in the world" video game link.

This certainly supports the Christian dogma of "Snipe thine enemies" given by Jesus with his Sermon on the Mount.
Your sources comic books.

My sources the "CIA", "Encyclopedia Britannica", "Pew Research", "University of Minnesota", and more.

http://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Atheism#sectio...

A 2010 survey published in Encyclopedia Britannica found that is atheists at about 2.0%.

Another study assessing religiosity among scientists who are members of the American Association for the Advancement of Science found that "just over half of scientists (51%) believe in some form of deity or higher power.

Sociologist Philip Schwadel found that higher levels of education are associated with increased religious participation and religious practice in daily life.

According to a 2012 report by the Pew Research Center, people describing themselves as "atheist" were 2% of the total population in the US.

http://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Demographics_o...

According to the International Bulletin of Missionary Research, an academic journal, "about 80,000 new Christians every day, 79,000 new Muslims every day, and 300 fewer atheists every day."

Another survey attributed to Britannica shows the population of atheists at around 2.4% of the world's population

While there are more atheists than ever before as global population continually increases, the atheist percentage of the total population seem to be declining

http://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_religi...

Sources outside of Wikipedia give differing estimates:

The CIA's World Factbook gives the world population as 7,021,836,029 (July 2012 est.) and the distribution of religions as Christian 33.39%(of which Roman Catholic 16.85%, Protestant 6.15%, Orthodox 3.96%, Anglican 1.26%), Muslim 22.74%, Hindu 13.8%, Buddhist 6.77%, Sikh 0.35%, Jewish 0.22%, Baha'i 0.11%, other religions 10.95%, atheists 2.01%

persecution. A 2006 study by researchers at the University of Minnesota involving a poll of 2,000 households in the United States found atheists to be the most distrusted of minorities,

In 2012, an article entitled Atheism in decline by Nigel Tomes declared:

In 1970 atheists (those avowing there is no God) numbered 166 million worldwide; that was almost one-in-twenty—4.5% of the globe’s population. By 2012 atheists’ number is estimated at 137 million. That’s a decline of almost 30 million. Since world population is growing, atheists’ share declined to less than one-in-fifty—under 2% in 2012. Put differently, every 24 hours there are 800 fewer atheists in the world! Atheism is in decline.

This is some funny stuff! He puts down all theists yet his wife is one. He probably got his wife on a porn site or Filipino Brides. That is why I call him Givethemliberty. Of course What about Bob will believe his nonsense without evidence. Did I say evidence? Lol! Isn't evidence what all atheists preach? This post is funny! He probably owned a mobile home and is supported by the government. The only home he owns are the pieces from a monopoly game. Lol!

Religion in America

Recent survey data analyzed by sociologists from UC Berkeley and Duke University has revealed a decrease in Americans who identify with a specific religion. The data, gleaned from the General Social Survey poll by the University of Chicago’s National Opinion Research Center, shows “a trend of Americans disavowing a specific religious affiliation that has accelerated greatly since 1990.” Rather than a definitive lack of belief in a deity, however, the data shows a lack of desire to commit to a particular religion.

The study states that 20% of Americans polled do not have a religious preference. This is a marked change from samples taken in 1990, when only 8% of respondents did not identify with a religion. The 20% in the sample are considered to be “unchurched,” which can mean either atheist or “no religion”— a difference that is stressed in the study.

Atheists make up 3% of the NORC study, having grown by only 2% since 1962. As the poll suggests, however, atheism in America has not reached the heights of many European counterparts. When compared in a 2012 RedC Opinion poll, the 5% of Americans who stated that they consider themselves to be atheist in outlook does not come close to Western European nations such as France (29%) and Germany (15%). This also means that a large portion of the “unchurched” figure are unaffiliated, sometimes referred to as “Nones.”
