You're a failed Creationist, go back to the Discovery Institute and ask for your money back you ignorant buffoon.

So you are comparing the lack of belief in god with the belief that some races are inferior to others. You aren't even worth a response.

That is, of course, assumming that you picked the right god out of the thousands that have revealed themselves to humanity. And this assumes that if there is a god, he is as petty and jealous as described in the bible, so childish that he would suffer a man eternal torture for something as simple as picking the wrong god, or choosing not to believe in the face of insignificant evidence for the supernatural.

So take pascal's wager elsewhere, it is senseless and reflects poorly on your intelligence.

Oh no! Which one, there are thousands, if not millions. There must be a clue, some way .....

Surely one of them has some cobbled together putrid mish mash book of contradictory, insane gobbledygook, that we can use as a guide to life everlasting?

Oh wait all of them do. Damn the luck, now let's pick the most obviously wrong choice, and understand that in doing so, we will have just made the only right selection.

Would you come and worship with me, this god who will make you eat your children? Come and bow down to the god who would sanction the rape/marriage of three year old girls. Come let us adore him, Christ the king of thieves and liars.

b-t-w: Has anybody seen Immanuel around here lately?

He has got to be a Mormon, they are the only real Christains, and only recently did they agree to let non whites be admitted into heaven. I wonder if they just let those people go to hell, before that? You do know they are all going to be gods, and each one will have his own planet?

Pretty funny, but it still makes me roll my eyes every time I see it. It's like they think they're actually saying something new that no one has heard before.

Everyone out there all alone, on his very own planet. The sense of community, quickly fades into the distance as greed tramples in to fill every void. Will it be only white men who are granted planets, of their own?

....okay...If Constantine ..really was the driving force behind Christianity .....why do I have to travel to Ukraine to find a church named in his honor ....while here, St. Joan of Arc's ..St. Peter's ..St.Mary's these abound ....
2) Faithful name their children after Saints...ie..Paul ,Matthew ,Sarah...
2a) Mormons and Muslims do the same...Moroni ..Muhammad ..Moses ...
2b)...Where are all the Constantine's ....Father of Christianity..???

3)Many Christians keep medals ...I've seen St. Christophers..St.Judes..etc... .."never" have I even heard of a St. Constantine medallion .....ergo.....Emperor Constantine is considered inconsequential ....

.....Oh for pete's sake....!!!...and, you almost had me believing you were intelligent ....allow me to elucidate...I'm entitled to pick whoever I feel will "best" represent me and my community ..
..I would rather have a christian over someone who denies the existence of God.....but..I would vote for an Atheist over an openly gay christian or a practicing Wiccan ..and, I'd probably choose the heathen over a scientologist .
2) As for what you were unable to comprehend ....Would you elect a racist with stellar qualifications ....or his less qualified opponent...???
2a) The point being ..qualifications are to be strived for...but, if the candidate does not represent my morals ...he is not getting my vote...

Allow me to educate you. Again. He was instrumental in Christianity taking off. At his time Christianity had a modest following but it certainly wasn't dominant. He made it the official state religion a theocracy. He commanded his soldiers to go temple to temple destroying or altering statues of Zeus into Jesus and other gods and goddesses into Christian characters and saints. Hera becomes Mother Mary for example. Most scrolls of those ancient gods were deemed illegal and owning them was punishable by death. We know thousands were killed or jailed for not converting. Some call it the great pagan purge an it was a long bloody massacre. A cornerstone of your faith that we since have seen time and time again be It the crusades, the Spanish Inquisition, witch hunts. Oh yes even if Jesus existed each drop of his blood has been paid back by a hundred thousand gallons of non believers or those unwilling to fall in line.
Again had Constatine suffered a PTSD hallucination of Perseus you would be defending Zeus right now.

Whether you buy it or not, will not change that it is how you happened to be Christain now. But not so, for Romney, don't look now, but you are not a Christain, and he is.
