Bill Gates - atheist and world's largest philanthropist.

I thought we went through that yesterday?

But creationists must lie to protect their weak cults

Repeating a lie does not make it true. Bill Gates has given more and it's sad that your cult cannot accept real giving.

I forgive your denial of facts because you are mentally ill.

The current most charitable individuals in the United States, based on “Estimated Lifetime Giving,” are:

1) Warren Buffett (atheist, donated $40.785 billion to “health, education, humanitarian causes”)

2) Bill & Melinda Gates (atheists, donated $27.602 billion to “global health and development, education”)

3) George Soros (atheist, donated $6.936 billion to “open and democratic societies”)

Religious people love to lie and exaggerate about their cults effectiveness.

Listen to yourself, you original argument was defeated, so now you move the goalposts.

Typical creationist tactic.

I just have to disagree. To lump a large group of people together and preach hate against that group just doesn't make any sense to me.

To spit in the face of someone because of their beliefs goes against our constitution and shows very little respect for one's fellow man.

Why all the hate?

Christians don't hate homosexuals angel. We hate the sin they are involved in and we don't want it normalized in our society. Many Christian groups reach out to homosexuals all the time.

Christians include tithing as a donation to charity. Something many are FORCED to do, like a tax.

Are you seriously saying you're better than me? It is nonsense to say that religionists are more charitable, generous or better than non-believers in any way.

People are good or bad, generous or selfish, according to their nature and nurture not their religious superstitions, or lack of any.

Antiatheist's comment seem indicative of typical religiously motivaed prejudice....
http://www.positiveatheism.org/writ/ghwbush.h...
I have read that only about 54% of USAmericans would vote for a 'non-believer'. Such prejudice is a disgrace.

Religion is the last bastion of superstition. It's divisive and nothing but trouble these days.

Non-belief is a perfectly honorable and respectable stance.
John Lennon's 'Imagine' sums it up....
http://www.youtube.com/watch...

I also like Jonny Eve's song but he swears. Perhaps like some people he sees swearing as a 'taboo' to be challenged..

USAmericans have largely beaten prejudice against women, blacks and now gays. An inclusive, secular society can only be achieved when non-belief is entirely respected and accepted.

So no religious cult or bishop ever compels anyone to contribute to a church?

Homosexuals? Were not talking about homosexuals at all. Atheism was the topic. However i totally think you have something against homosexuals now that you brought up how much you "don't" hate them on a forum that wasn't even about them in the first place.

Correct the bible then - remove the part about atheists being fools.

Put your morals where you mouth are you religious cowards.

Ignorant excuse to hate gays - just admit you are predjudiced and use religion to justify YOUR ignorant opinion.

You're cowards that need to hide behind religion to express your hate...worthless people

All you have to do is prove the god you're lying to us about - no need to apologise, just stick to your task and see how honest you are.
