calling believers "bots" is a great example of that hypocrisy I was talking about. Atheists are some of the biggest robots there ever has been. Most have been brainwashed beyond repair.

You're right-- calling these fools "bots" is highly insulting to robots.

This is because a **robot** can be programmed to actually produce useful work.

A mind-numbed goddite such as yourself, cannot.

A **robot** can be shown information which will change it's behavior.

A brain-dead Genuine Christian™ such as yourself, cannot be shown anything to change your mind.

So you are correct-- it's insulting to robots, to compare you people to these incredible and useful machines.

Absolutely I have!

I'm much-much smarter than ...**you**.. for example.

Of course, to the astute observer, that would be like proving I'm smarter than a rock, so I must ever strive to better myself.

By rejecting bullsh8t claims such as "god is real", I have made a most excellent beginning.

Which again, proves me much-much smarter than ... again... you.

LMAO!

Yeah ... priests have never liked "rebellious minds" ... in an earlier age you may well have been burned at the stake!

Offer up an alternative descriptive word just as short and I'll consider using it. I can see where you might find it derogatory but since Atheists clearly hold a certain disdain for religion and it's practitioners I can see nothing hypocritical about it. Religious Folk act and react in largely predictable and repetitive patterns based upon their religious upbringing (programming)... just like robots. Of course, we all do that to some degree or another with Skeptics and Free Thinkers at least being aware they are doing it and trying to think outside the box.

Pick up a rock. Any rock. You're holding a book containing a story that began billions of years ago and ends billions of years from now. We're just little transitory things to that rock, no more important or consequential than yesterday's rain or a puff of wind.

I envy the Geologist because they can read those books. What a power to stand on a landscape and know it's history! Almost god-like. Geologists are cool.
You're profound. And way too horny for geologists.
Has one of them been telling you he can read a rock,
and you believed him.

Don't let him tell you he can hear rocks talking too.
Don't do anything disgusting if he asks.

There ya go. Leave it to a bot to drag everything good or noble down into the feverish, swirling cesspool of their poorly repressed sexual fantasies. Poor old WarForOil, singing hymns while mentally undressing the Choir. You're Hellbound according to the rules of your own mythology! Well ... you won't be lonesome down there Mr WarForOil. Most of you favourite televangelists will be down there prostrate before Satan swapping pervert stories.

rhill you are incapable of saying anything that I would find derogatory. I only get offended by people I respect.

So the people you "respect" offend you? You're not making much sense.

RHill, this post is one of the most honest I've read on this thread. I don't hold it against people if they are none believers or believers we each have to figure that on our own. Just don't come to my home and tell me what I should believe, that I will go to hell if I don't conformed to your personal idea of a 'saved' person. Jehovah Witnesses are the worst in my experience. I told one woman who refused to leave me alone. Finally I just told her to haul her ass off my property and don't come back!

Atheism is one of the strongest cults that I know of. Not only are they robots but they usually have a terrible attitude. Dawkins is a great example of an old, angry atheist. Sad really

The term "bot" isnt reserved for believers. Its for the people who have gone of the deep end of their religious belief. Anything that goes against their literal interpretation of their holy book must be denied and slandered at all cost. And all lies and deception on their part is COMPLETELY ACCEPTABLE.

MOST believers DONT fall into this category thank god lol

Your name is laughably ironic with your post lol.

Oil companies are heavily dependent on geologists and their findings. Along with precious metals, coal, gas and whole lot of others lol

Not to bad for people fluent in the Igneous and or Sedimentary and or Metamorphic rock dialect.

Oh its much more than a lack of belief. Its a militant and angry belief system. You go out of your way to poke fun of believers and put up ridiculous billboards during Christmas time. Its just plain weird
