If you read much here, you would see that atheists aren't fond of islam or judaism either. Hindus and Buddhists aren't big on prosletyzing, so we don't see many of them in these forums...
Agreed. It is generally the Abrahamic religions that people have an issue with given their tendency to evangelise, and the violence of their holy books, and some of their followers. Also a number of the Atheists here are ex-Christians, so have first hand experience of that religion.

Indeed it is.

Buddha was simply a man-- anyone studying his sayings quickly realize this fact. Buddha himself admitted he sometimes made **human** mistakes.

But the real kicker? Buddha **really** does teach peaceful ways, and interpersonal cooperation.

In **direct** contrast to Genuine Christianity™, which teaches you to **hate** all non-christians, and to accept they magically "deserve" infinite torture.

Which, naturally, leads you Genuine Christians™ to do violence against non-christians.

You love to use the word "religion" dont you? Other religions never have had a living, breathing savior that thousands witnessed perform miracles and rose from the dead.
Neither do **you**.

None, IN FACT, have that for REAL.

It's all 100% bullshit, you ignorant moron.

Why?

Belief in Santa Claus would be equally valid, here.

Both are figments, you see...

... but with SANTA? You get presents in December.

What do you get with your mythical "christ"? A destroyed sense of self worth? As you are told, repeatedly, that you somehow DESERVE to be tortured forever?

"it's", fucktard.

The beast and the false prophet are cast alive into a lake of fire. The rest of us the unchosen will be killed with the sword of Jesus.“An all the fowls were filled with their flesh.” Revelations 19:20-21

Actually?

It **is** your ugly and vile religion.

Islam is also violent, but has a **long** way to go, before it surpasses the historical ugly that is your hatecult (christianity).

You flunked history, didn't you?

I find it very hard to be offended by mere swear words.
The endorsement of child rape by your bible is evil, however.
Sort out your priorities.

...
Thank you for proving my point about christians knowing nothing, or next to nothing about other religions. Buddhists do not believe the Buddha was a deity of any sort. He is revered as an enlightened teacher, but only that. He was born like any other person, with no deities or virgins involved. He died like any other mortal man. He is not believed to be the creator, or the son of the creator. Strictly speaking, Buddhism has no creation mythology, although some branches essentially borrow the Hindu creation story. It isn't necessary to believe in a creator or deity to be a Buddhist. You can technically be an atheist and a Buddhist at the same time. In real life, that doesn't work out, but only because there is no more evidence for reincarnation than there is for any other religious theory about what happens after you die.

On the other hand, allah and jehovah seem very much to be two names for the same being. Both seem inordinately fond of the idea of torturing people in hell for all eternity.

So we know you endorse sex with children.

I will never stop saying that your behaviour is not acceptable.
