We're selective who gets thru the door.
Yes, we all know how selective you were in the 1960s, and heck the 1940s too.

You spend 100% of your efforts on hating 3% of the population. There is a lesson in there somewhere.

Pity????? lol.... you don't have compassion for anyone as far as I can tell from your posts on here. Aside from that, you have no reason to pity an atheist or anyone who chooses to not be religious. It's a choice, and a sensible one in my opinion lol. Now...if you want to pity me for something, pity the fact that I have 2 herniated disks at such a young age lol, but I don't even feel that way so I see no reason why you would or should ;)

not really........80% of the population believes in God. There has been atheists going back to the beginning of time. There seems to have always been a small percentage of kooks that continues today. Good luck with that

You seem to have some trouble with numbers and statistics. Here is a recent Gallup poll.

Poll shows atheism on the rise in the U.S.

By Kimberly Winston| Religion News Service,August 13, 2012

Religiosity is on the decline in the U.S. and atheism is on the rise, according to a new worldwide poll.

The poll, called “The Global Index of Religiosity and Atheism,” found that the number of Americans who say they are “religious” dropped from 73 percent in 2005 (the last time the poll was conducted) to 60 percent.

At the same time, the number of Americans who say they are atheists rose, from 1 percent to 5 percent.

90% of the world can't eat, read or write. Does that make starvation & illiteracy a virtue?

We don't need your pity.

And you **are** afraid of reason; that is why you fight so hard to get your religion into science class.

You can lie all you like-- your behavior proves you *are* afraid.

Try 40%, doofus.

40% of the world does not believe in the god you worship.

In fact? More than that number-- by a **large** margin.

Nope..... 60% or less.

And of those 60%? Less than 1% believe in **your** very ugly god.

That puts you into a very tiny minority.

Very....

... tiny.

Just like what's left of your mind.

Illiteracy **is** a virtue.
