I have neither religion nor spirituality-- and I feel no need for either.

I know of a great many people like me-- including a lot of folk who attend churches on a regular basis.

The facts are, that the majority of folk are >>not<< spiritual in any way--even those who attend church.

This desperate need for magic? Is not universal.

We're not sure why you lie about god to atheists, when its been established that you have no proof whatsoever. It must be your mental illness of faith that keeps you from talking about everything except this fact.

so you admit that you have no proof of god and are an immoral liar, lying about atheists.

Great.

If you believe god is possible, it is your duty to present the evidence.

Since the dawn of time, not a single theist has ever produced any valid evidence. So we must conclude after several centuries of lies that you are definitely mentally ill and have no interest in learning about the universe according to observational evidence.

God never has been real, its a fiction created by mentally ill people who must lie, because they have no evidence for their hallucinations.

Also, theists do not respect logic or facts. They would much rather avoid those things that cause themselves to question their beliefs.

So we have a mentally ill patient that is averse to curing itself, because of ego and immorality - the opposite of the very values the theist cults try to promote.

So far science is silent on God
Odd that atheists talk about God all the time.
The United States seems to be governed by elected officials who are Christian. President Obama and VP Biden two examples.

Science would be silent, or an invisible, silent and active entity. If something cannot be seen, heard and does nothing, what does that tell you?

I have no idea-- as soon as you can show PROOF that this ... "god" thing is real?

Then we can talk-- until then? There is no reason to ASSUME that such an unlikely thing (magical sky-fairy) is real.

Is there?

Yes. My mother and father had unprotected sex-- nine months later, I was born.

That really is not a mystery; pretty basic stuff.

But I can see how you'd be confused-- you assume things without asking for proof...(such as god).

Actually?

Lincoln-log-for-brains is wrong as usual.

Science is NOT AT ALL silent on gods' "domain".

In the past? Everyone just KNEW that lightning was "a direct message from god".

Science came along and proved lightning is just electrical discharge in the atmosphere to the ground, created by large masses of air moving quickly over the ground-- EXACTLY like rubbing your feet in carpet, to get a spark from the doorknob, only on a grand scale.

In the past? Everyone just KNEW that the stars were heavenly beings--gods of some sort.

Science came along and proved the stars were just distant suns.

In the past? Everyone just KNEW that sickness was evil demons sent by god to punish people.

Science came along and proved that most sickness comes from microscopic life forms, invading a person's body.

Science has a LOT to say about what was formerly "god".

And with each SCIENTIFIC STATEMENT? The god in question either vanishes or grows smaller and more weak.

Science is ANYTHING BUT silent about god....!

That's just it: Constantine did >>not<< have control--there were problems, and squabbling between factions with different religious views, that sort of thing.
So by force-converting everyone, by sword or die, that put paid to the religious squabbling, as he no doubt murdered all the different leaders of those now-illegal religions. Or else they converted to the new one he had just invented.
Your Christianity started with a mass-murder of anyone who refused to play along.
Like so many religions that came before it...
Yeah......."you" must realize "all" of this is unsubstantiated ...(except)...

Christianity "did" begin with mass-murder ..(of the Christians themselves )..Who had to wait 200 years for Constantine to be born , before the persecution of Christianity would come to an end ...

Because "witnessing" is judgment-writ-large.

The "witness" is JUDGING that the person is not GOOD ENOUGH for their savior's blessing, and must meet some arbitrary STANDARD.

If that were not true? There would be no need to "witness" at all.

So it's pretty ugly behavior.

When Constantine murdered everyone who did not comply with his order to Join or Die.

That is a flat lie-- there WERE NO christians prior to 300CE, until Constantine had written the Genuine Official Christian Bible™?

There were NO christians to BE killed you silly person!

Don't lie-- it's unbecoming.

Lie. Without the Genuine Official Christian Bible™, there were no such people.

Sorry-- but that's the facts-jack.

That would be you: projecting your own obsessive-compulsive behavior onto other people.

Sorry, but that's the way it is-- not EVERYONE is as OCD as you appear to be.
