You have no proof of god - that's why you're angry.

Instead of getting angry at atheists, ask your cult leaders why they lied to you.

<quoted text>Nope, just like the sky isn't really blue, that is just an illusion, an optical illusion. Why do you think you don't see blue "sky" between you eyes and your hand raised up in front of them?
Just as there are things that aren't real that can be "seen" there are real things that can't be seen with the naked eye.

It keeps life interesting. My favorite optical illusion is the rainbow that shows at night. It is Nature's own magic show. I can't imagine a night much more special than standing at the foot of a waterfall with a moonbow to the left and a brilliant moon to the right. Absolutely primal.
There's lots of ways to keep life interesting. One of my favorites is to understand the tricks behind the "magic" or in the case of natural phenomenon ... the reasons behind it. Clearly our paths have led to different interpretations of what constitutes "illusions". None the less, I can see where you're coming from. The sky and pack ice isn't really colored blue. It appears blue as a consequence of how different wavelengths of light propagate through different media. That's okay ... it's still "magic" if it captures your interest or makes you think. The evolution of that trait is what 'makes us all so special'.

You've been using your computer all these years to transmit the disease of atheism. Please refrain from your continual day to day lying. It's not healthy for you nor to others.
You know that God is real.....it's why you have to brainwash yourself to believe otherwise by constantly lying to yourself.
BTW, I corrected your post. Due to your gripping fear, you made a huge mistake.
I like you chose a medical analogy. In mine, Atheism is like an antibiotic and Religion is like a Yeast Infection.

I agree. Militant bigoted atheist trash like Skeptic are mentally sick jobless liberals wasting tax dollars in every way they can, while lying to people.
Atheists are verifiably the most hateful people that crawl along the earth's terrain.
Actually, Grasshopper, we have very little to get militant about. Nothing 'brings out the hateful' in people quicker than telling them their cherished beliefs are in error. You 'bots labor under a huge burden of erroneous cherished beliefs. We are here to lighten that burden. You should be grateful. Of course, you are not only ungrateful, you are actively hostile! Humans seem to possess a limitless capacity for hostility, especially against those who are 'different'. It's interesting that in 'your world' the Creator-being made us all free-willed individuals then invested us with a hostility towards other members of our species who dare to exercise their free-willed individuality. Indeed, that is one of the little 'paradoxes' that should give you pause, make you think, plant the seed of doubt. But it doesn't. A Miracle of sorts, I suppose.

The increase in crimes and the misery index can be solely blamed on your atheistic agenda.
People were much happier worldwide when Christianity was the main influence in our schools and workplace.
While you're laughing at Christians, people you've harmed are crying.
You should be locked up behind bars and left to only eat pig slop.
The "misery index"?!? Is that like a Credit Score or something like the Dow-Jones Industrial Average? Is 'happiness' some commodity that can be bought, sold, stored, indexed and cataloged? I personally use a 'happiness/laughter' coefficient factor that indicates the happier a person is, the more they laugh. It works out pretty well. I've seen dirt-poor African children laughing as they play in rutted dirt roads with a stick and an empty tin-can and I've seen American kids mewling, crying and complaining surrounded by their thousands of entertainments. We didn't do that godbot ... you did. Does anybody remember laughter?

Its like junkies in a crash pad telling each other and themselves that smack is good and improves your life.
Who, better than a godbot, knows about 'self indoctrination' and gathering 'to find others like them'? Y'all wrote the book on perpetuating mythologies. If you want to know how to turn total hogwash into a profitable enterprise, study religion.

Medical term for your condition: Mental constipation.
Wow. You are trying to be nice! It must be Sunday and you're feeling generous. I would have thought you would have said 'projectile vomiting' or 'diarrhea of the mouth' or 'hemorrhagic fever of the soul' or something to that effect. True though ... constipation is no picnic.

Tell me ... are you getting ready to gather with your fellow godbots for some 'mutual aid'? Some self-congratulatory re-enforcement of your primitive belief system? Did your Creator-being whisper in your ear to visit the Atheist Forum before going to His House to worship him? Perhaps it was His alter ego ... your old buddy SATAN! Listening to Voices-in-the-Head can get mighty confusing! Hang in there pal ...

Okay. I find it interesting that only you and your arch foe Quantum-Bob know how to do the little 'tm' trick thing. Maybe you are the other side of his coin, the ying to his yang ... or maybe y'all should just leave your dang ying yangs alone.

You strongly hinted at it-- on multiple occasions. You might--maybe-- have been joking.
But-- based on your subsequent *w*h*ring comments? It's doubtful you were-- at the heart of many a joke, is the truth.
But you **are** a credit to your cult of hate.
Kudos, Credit!
Kudos to you, for spreading your hate
Says the worm who is too cowardly to come out to his church about his true ideology. That type of deception is no less of a lie than the buttpirate who pretends to be straight.

Actually? In the **photograph** they are-- the physics of what is taking place? In the resultant moving images, they are going backwards.
Even though the original wheels are not.
As for photographing of a rainbow? That proves it is **not** an illusion-- for an illusion, by definition, only exists within the mind/eye of the one being fooled.
Once you see through the illusion? It is no longer an illusion.
But this is too subtle for the like of you.
You just do not have sufficient brains.
You are a CREDIT to your hate-cult.
You can photograph your image in a mirror too, that doesn't prove anything but that you recorded a reflection/illusion of yourself.
An ordinary camera is "constructed" to record what the *human* eye sees, so it records the same optical illusions that humans see.
There are other animals who can't see the "arc" of a rainbow, so does NOT seeing it become an optical illusion too? xD

Some are, some aren't. Topix atheists are a different breed than most atheists. They are the acolytes of creeps like Richard Dawkins and Sam Harris.
