Well... to be fair, the hateful parts are most of it anyway.

You take my comments as "hateful"?

Seriously?

All I am doing, is pointing out the fatal flaws in your beliefs.

That is it.

And you think that's "hateful"?

Wow.

The problem isn't me-- the problem is your hate-filled beliefs!

Seriously.

Get help-- before you kill again.

No its a lie, and it hurts you more. Nobody trusts creationists who have no evidence of hel; or god - which is all of them.

You are more scared of god not being real, than atheists are scared of the hell you invented to threaten us with.

No-- threatening small children with horrid infinite torture is child abuse.

Your hideous and abusive religion has been ruining children's lives since it was invented.

And **you** are the result of such abuse.

But.

Anyone who uses threats--even imaginary ones (hell) is an abuser.

<quoted text>If there is no heaven, there is no God. The two go hand in hand. I believe in both. The energy in our bodies has to go somewhere when we die. The purpose of life is life. God is called the "King of heaven" Daniel 4:37.
One of the ways we define death is a flat EEG, i.e. no electrical activity in the brain. When you are dead, there's no energy left in the body to go anywhere.

We agree on the no god = no heaven and vice versa. Since your evidence for both is belief that the body retains energy after death that has to be discharged to somewhere, and that belief is contradicted by the very definition of death, there's no proof of the existence of either.

In order to evolve, living things must reproduce, so in that sense, the purpose of life is to produce life, i.e. future generations. Beyond that, your statement is mere tautology.

The bible is a book of myths written by people who lacked understanding of most of science. No proof of anything.

You are completely unacquainted with the hard honest truth.

Seriously.

Grow up, already.

Try to get past the abuse you had as a child, why don't you?

Hell is no more real than Zeus is.

You are an atheist for Zeus, right?

Right.

When we die, we lose weight and heat. Both of these are associated with Energy and are part of the human Spirit which can be immortal. Your statement that the prophets lacked understanding of science is incorrect. Daniel 1:4. Science, mathematics and the bible are perfectly compatible. I have seen most of the bible literally fulfilled in the past 52 years and am confident the rest will be fulfilled also.

Proof?

**ALL** fossils are transitional.

I am so very sorry for your loss (of intelligence).

Yes, you don't like hear that your cult is full of liars with no proof of god. The truth is hard for you to confront or even acknowledge.

This is why you're a coward after all.
