Those were your exact words. The logical question is what things has he seen?
Yes...that is the question that would be expected, but as I said, I don't wish to argue with you by telling you his many different reasons he's chosen to be an atheist.

antiatheist is a Creationist Cult member and a troll.

He ignores scientific facts and tries to ridicule them instead of providing any evidence of his own.

Its because you're an ignorant Cult Member that you support Hitler
Hitler did more good than harm, Jim.
You should like him too.
You're not Jewish are you Jim ?

He also did things for people with simple minds like you, Jim.
There are many fewer mentally defective people in Germany
now than before Hitler. He fixed them. You can be fixed too.

You want to meet God don't you Jim.

I'll make any statement that I choose too. You are not owed a personal explanation of any kind from me. You really should step off your soap box.

my guess is more than half of you, wait, all of you rarely do squat for anyone. Its easy to get on here and start talking about all you do but you have no proof of it. Whatever you have done, its not enough. You still sin on a daily basis and only Jesus can save you of that.
I have read all of posts and it sounds as if you consider yourself god and judge other people. You are not a nice person and that is plain to see. Why do you think only you are right and unless others believe exactly as you they are not only wrong but stupid too. I notice that you refuse to answer the question asked : Where Did God come from? That shows you are the one with the low IQ-----untill you answer Were God came from----nothing you say on here means diddly squat!

Oh I'm sorry anti...you're right...that is hypocritical of me lol...especially since you're whining cause I'm doing the same thing, that you do all the time (not answering a question. Oh except I'm an adult and I'm actually telling you that the reason I'm not answering your question is because I don't want to argue with you, and I know that's what will happen.

;-) sucks don't it lol

your excuse is you don't owe me an explanation? Ha ya real adult. You were the one that brought up your in laws and your husbands atheism. You are also the one that brought up the "if you had seen what he has" nonsense. Sounds like quite a pair

Apparently the words "maybe" and "possibly" do not mean the same thing to you as they do to me. Either way, it's still nothing that I choose to discuss with you lol...yes I certainly did bring up my in laws :-). It's always my favorite when you pay attention :-). However that post was in response to someone else, and if he asked me the same questions I would still not be required to answer them.... And he may even have more maturity about that than you my dear ;-)

Also, my statement is "that I do not owe you any conversation at all". It's not an excuse darlin, that is fact!:-)....and my relationship can't "sound" like anything to you because I have told you nothing of it that you could correctly make a judgement lol...but just so you know...we are quite a happy married pair ;-).

Christianity borrowed its central myths and ceremonies from other ancient religions. The ancient world was rife with tales of virgin births, miracle-working saviors, tripartite gods, gods taking human form, gods arising from the dead, heavens and hells, and days of judgment. In addition to the myths, many of the ceremonies of ancient religions also match those of that syncretic latecomer, Christianity. To cite but one example (there are many others), consider Mithraism, a Persian religion predating Christianity by centuries. Mithra, the savior of the Mithraic religion and a god who took human form, was born of a virgin; he belonged to the holy trinity and was a link between heaven and Earth; and he ascended into heaven after his death. His followers believed in heaven and hell, looked forward to a day of judgment, and referred to Mithra as "the Light of the World." They also practiced baptism (for purification purposes) and ritual cannibalism—the eating of bread and the drinking of wine to symbolize the eating and drinking of the god’s body and blood. Given all this, Mithra's birthday should come as no surprise: December 25th; this event was, of course, celebrated by Mithra’s followers at midnight.

Mithraism is but the most striking example of the appearance of these myth

Time for your regular owning.

Scientists didn't give us Piltdown Man it was creationist hoaxers.

Scientists uncovered the hoax. Yes, science is that good.

If you want real and tangible truths about our universe then the scientific method is the best guide we have.

If however, you prefer superstitious mumbo jumbo to real truths, then pick up a religious book. It doesn't really matter which one, take your pick.

The Qur’an, Bagahad Gita, Bible, etc,- they're all superstitious nonsense....equality of ju-ju.

Christianity is the divinity of doubt.

As set out in that lexicon of futility known as the bible.
