lol skeptic you are pretty weird. You don't even realize how dumb you sound. Atheism is in itself a religion for dumb fools. You can't know there isn't a God because you don't know everything.
Since you are the expert on a religion, that we know nothing about, maybe you could clue us in? Religions have bits and pieces, rules and regulations, acceptable conduct guidelines, that sort of thing, and atheism just means "no theism".

So we need you to show us how a religion can fit into that. There is no church required, no services to attend, no gods or godlings to even give a thought to, no collection plate, no rites, no chants, prayers or mumbo jumbo, and no group of people. In fact most of us, do not even know other atheist, except in places like topix.
So tell me about the religion that you claim for me, and I will tell you about the honesty and morality I claim for you. Would you like me to tell you what they are and how they do fit into your life?
Tell me, could a real god be whooped by an iron chariot?
Would a real god make parents eat thier children?

you know what is really amazing? Atheists take up a good part of their life talking about something they claim not to believe in. We both know the YOU don't know there isn't a God. Just admit you don't know and I might have a little more respect for you. Claiming that there isn't a God just makes you look dumb.
Your respect is worthless, after all you follow a Pagan derivative of a myth-god who would make you eat your children.

There is some bizarre cannibalism verses in the old testament, and then God-eating ones in the new. Strange indeed.

wow looks like someone passed the little atheist book around to all of you. Every atheist I've ever talked to says exactly the same old thinks and quotes the same old distorted verses. I thought you people are supposed to be intelligent. I've honestly met very few that are not simply filled with hate about something they supposedly don't believe in. Very, very weird.

Really? I thought that Henry Ford analogy I said was pretty original. I just came up with it off the top of my head. I didn't read it in a book. There really is a hundred year old oak tree in my front yard and you really cant prove that Henry Ford didn't plant it.

you guys should really stop and listen to yourselves. You claim the bible preaches hate yet you turn around and attack and hate Christians. You should see how desperate all of you sound. Its really pretty sad.

Hello, Pot......You're kidding, right. You are talking about atheist talking points? Really? You nutt jobs have been speaking the same babble talking points for 2000 years! And you still can't get the bible right, as there are over 30,000 secs of Christianity.

We are here to stop your theocracy from ever happening. You hate democracy, secularism, and the constitution. You don't even have an argument, so take a hike.

What have i said that is hateful? When have i said anything insulting? Please give an example of an attack on anyone that I have been a part of. A lot of the insults and intolerance that i have read here have been under the name "antiatheist"

Let me give you a little information about myself, I don't hate anyone.

I don't hate any god, i just don't believe that any of them are real because I have not been provided with sufficient proof to convince me otherwise.

I am not a hateful person, nor do I conduct myself in a hateful way. I have witnessed hatred and bigotry firsthand and I find it to be a wasteful way to live one's life.I choose to live my life as a happy person, I have been one ever since I became an atheist.

Christians give more to charity.......not even close.
If you include in the definition of "charity" giving to religious organizations, churches, etc., probably. But, since those organizations are of no benefit to humanity and the needy whatsoever, so what. You might as well burn your money to provide warmth to the needy in cold climates as give to religion.

When you're brave enough to prove the god you're here to lie about, your little observations / hallucinations might matter more.

Remember just be brave and admit you're here to lie about god and have no evidence whatsoever to present.

And you don't know for sure that the universe isn't controlled by an invisible pink giant unicorn. But it is so improbable that it would be irrational to believe it. Ditto your idea of the biblical god.
