Why do you continue to talk about "pure bullshit" so much then? Can your atheism provide you with more redeemable and valuable activities outside of your entrapment on atheists hate forums like this one? Can it allow you to escape the topic of God?
I think not.
You will die talking about the God you hate , just to then face Him and then be thrown into the Hell you deserve.
None of your excuses will hold up, none of your scientific facts will rescue you, none of your fellow atheists will be able to help you , none of your requests for proof will look rational as you look up to Christ on your knees dwelling instantly as to what an idiot you've been your entire life.....you're empty now and you will be remembered as a fool for eternity.
Its because you're an ignorant liar that you cannot prove your god.

This is how disgustingly dishonest people with no morals behave...

Lol! May I ask what language did Buddha use to write his autograph manuscript?
Here's a buddhist web-site refuting your claim:
Question:
I know there are all these books about buddhism, but is there just one book with just what the Buddha wrote? Kinda like a bible for Buddhists?
Answer
Simply put, no. The reason is simple. Just like the Bible was not written by God or by Jesus, but by men, Buddha didn't write anything himself.
The first written text of Buddhism come well after his death. The tradition wants that his disciples, after his death decided that they needed to put down in writing the Buddha's teachings and discourses. So, it is accepted that the words are of the Buddha's but not by him.

religion
Several weeks ago, a ground-breaking study on religious belief and social well-being was published in the Journal of Religion & Society. Comparing 18 prosperous democracies from the U.S. to New Zealand, author Gregory S Paul quietly demolished the myth that faith strengthens society.

Drawing on a wide range of studies to cross-match faith – measured by belief in God and acceptance of evolution – with homicide and intimate behavior, Paul found that secular societies have lower rates of violence and teenage pregnancy than societies where many people profess belief in God.

Top of the class, in both atheism and good behavior, come the Japanese. Over eighty percent accept evolution and fewer than ten percent are certain that God exists. Despite its size – over a hundred million people – Japan is one of the least crime-prone countries in the world. It also has the lowest rates of teenage pregnancy of any developed nation.

Next in line are the Norwegians, British, Germans and Dutch. At least sixty percent accept evolution as a fact and fewer than one in three are convinced that there is a deity.

At the other end of the scale comes America. Over 50 percent of Americans believe in God, and only 40 percent accept some form of evolution (many believe it had a helping hand from the Deity). The U.S. has the highest rate of teenage pregnancy and homicide rates are at least five times greater than in Europe and ten times higher than in Japan.

All this information points to a strong correlation between faith and antisocial behavior -- a correlation so strong that there is good reason to suppose that religious belief does more harm than good.

At first glance that is a preposterous suggestion, given that religions preach non-violence and intimate restraint. However, close inspection reveals a different story.

All believers learn that God holds them responsible for their actions. So far so good, but for many, belief absolves them of all other responsibilities.
Consciously or subconsciously, those who are "born again" or "chosen" have diminished respect for others who do not share their sect or their faith. Convinced that only the Bible offers "truth", they lose their intellectual curiosity and their ability to reason. Their priority becomes not the world they live in but themselves.

The more people prioritize themselves rather than those around them, the weaker society becomes and the greater the likelihood of antisocial behavior.
Hence gun laws which encourage Americans to see each other not as fellow human beings who deserve protection, but as potential aggressors who deserve to die.

As for sex… Faith encourages ignorance rather than responsible behavior. In other countries, sex education includes contraception, reducing the risk of unwanted pregnancies. Such an approach recognizes that young people have the right to make their own choices and helps them make decisions that benefit society as a whole.
In America faith-driven abstinence programs deny them that right
. The result is soaring rates of unwanted pregnancy and sexually transmitted infections.

Despite all its fine words, religion has brought in its wake little more than violence, prejudice and intimate disease.
i think this shatters the thinking that morality is lost when societies become secular.

Abrahamic religion are foolish as they generally invovle belief in an afterlife. These pages won't last for eternity, but they will remain observable for a very long time. I think history's verdict will be that 21st Century religionists are foolish and have crashed here.

I enjoy watching Bob crash.
It's daft to think that a god sent a prophet to Earth. There's no scientific justification for such nonsense. It is fairly clear now that Religionism and religious faith are simply man-made relics on the path of human development.

Religion = superstition
Theology = mythology
They're plainly divisive and outdated nonsense.

If you didn't follow what was going on, you can keep your mouth shut.

The fist part of your response was from Bob's post where he claimed: "Records exist of stuff he's written-- alas, it's not in English." And the whole reason I posted the Buddhist link was to refute him, showing how he bit his own tongue. I made no attempt to compare Buddhism and Christianity.
