We are not the ones who believe in a God who sends people to hell for not believing.
We are not the ones who believe in a god who believes in slavery.
We are not the ones who believe in a murdering god.
But you are the ones that think you are the masters of biblical knowledge(if you were masters, you would understand proverbs even), yet you aren't. Since you aren't masters of biblical knowledge, you don't have a clue what God is like or should be like.

And, you are the ones whose ancestors not only believed in slavery but had slaves.
And you are the ones whose ancestors not only believed in murder but did it.
As a matter of a fact, people who share a common ancestor with you, today have slaves and commit murder.

Nah, but that, what you just said is 100% proof that you don't know what you're talking about and you can't come to logical conclusions based on facts. All it proves if people have different interpretations is that it can be interpreted in many(or 40,000) ways.
And that? Proves to 100% that there are NO GODS whispering to these people what the truth is.

Thanks!

You are just helping out my case!

Sorry, but that's the facts, Jack: you simply do not do science.

At all.

I expect god to be BETTER THAN ME, you idiot.

But?

According to YOU?

GOD IS DUMBER THAN A DOG.

Seriously-- the god you worship would lose in a battle of wits to a dog.

I know that god should be SUPERIOR IN EVERY WAY to mere humans.

But?

The ugly bible pictures a god who is JEALOUS!(an evil emotion)

And HATEFUL!(all the commands to murder non-believers)

And MURDEROUS!(all the times bible-god killed people for trivial things)

And EASY TO ANGER (all the times bible-god shows his extreme temper tantrums)

I expect BETTER than THAT from a ... GOD.

Fail.

This is your initial premise of your reasoning.

Excuse me sir, but it was godbots like you who translated the buybull and it' horrible passages.It was godbot scholars who agreed that God killed a man for working on the Sabbath, turned a woman into a pillar of salt for looking backwards, and killed a man for refusing to marry his brother's widow.

Are you an idiot or what? As the picture on my screen shows, I'm black. My ancestors were slaves who revolted against the French in Haiti. It your fellow Christians who opposed the abolishing of slavery.

Notice the idiot thinks that I'm white and says that my ancestors owned slaves, though I'm black and my ancestors fought against slavery?
Notice his racist assertion that a whole race of people(the white race) should be held responsible for tings the did not commit?
Pretty Christian of him
How do I know.
Him wrongly assuming my race without evidence and with all evidence to the contrary=His assumption that a god exist, despite all evidence to the contrary.
His racist viewpoint that a whole race of people should be held accountable for slavery= 1-The Christian doctrine that we are all sinners, inheriting original sin from Adam and Eve. 2- The fact that God killed the children of Egypt for the crimes of Pharaoh.3-The fact that god banned bastards from heaven.

He is disgusting, I agree.

I find that religion pretty much brings that out in folk--regardless of who they were before.

One of many reasons why I oppose religion on general principles: it allows ugly people to "justify" their hate--

-- and worse, lets them convince otherwise ordinary people to go along with it (or to turn a blind eye).

I find the Buddhist religion to be okay, though I disapprove of it on the same grounds that I disapprove of an religion-the fact that it assumes it knows what has not be proven. Buddhism, unlike the Abrahamic religions, does not have a god who kills innocent people.
If I ever chose to be religious again, I'd be Buddhist.

I agree-- non-theistic/non-reincarnation Buddhism is a pretty good thing for many folk who need/want the rituals.

I just never felt the need for that sort of thing-- I'd rather just belong to a social club instead.:)

But I do respect that Buddhism teaches that violence isn't the answer for pretty much most things.

That's a lesson a lot of people could use more of.

If it's "just worthless talk," why are you here?
The way I see it, atheists (myself included) ridicule Christianity because so-called "Christians" insist that everyone worship it and get mad when we refuse to do so. Then these same "Christians" start throwing insults and making vague threats about the mythical "hell."
To me, it means they're pissed because we refuse to join their Misery Loves Company club. Too bad. I simply refuse to trade in the pleasures of secularist freedom for the miseries of religionist slavery. The religionists will just have to deal with it.
That's just the way your type sees it. It doesn't make it reality.

Yeah right. If you only knew what you were talking about.

I'm not here to teach you anything useful. You're just here to try to convert me. It's not me that can't stand someone else believing or doing different than I do. It's you and your type that are that weak minded that they need others to believe and do the same. lol.

I'm no idiot. Especially compared to you(since your type is so weak minded you need to compare what others are like to what you're like).
Nah, the real problem is that you're dumber than a dog, you idiot. Well, I take that back, you might be as smart as a dog, but that's about it. You're doing an awful lot of barking on here with your comrades.

Calculus is based on internally consistent logic.

Can you say the same about your bible?

No?

Interesting-- it **is** internally contradictory.

The two are nothing alike.

Nicely put. Bob is a sick and mentally disturbed person. We have his ugly cult of atheism to blame for that.
I wager he has killed Christians in his past.....probably dozens. His hatred can't stay bottled up.....the angry little hateful twit.
The only murderers in History are you christians-- well, and the islamics too, of course.

Spanish Inquisition anyone? That's just a drop in the bucket of your hate-filled murderous cult's doings.

I've killed no one-- but I would bet a new $100 that **you** fantasize about murdering ME.

Your hate-filled comments above is proof of that.

It's very Jesus of you.
