oh amused.........you know you are in trouble when you have to totally make things up. I bet you thank God everyday for topix. Its the only place you can go where you have a small group of people that are just as crazy as you.

Can we get a direct flight back to reality, or do we have to change planes in Denver? I am not the one suggesting that if I didn't believe in an invisible scorekeeper planning to torture me forever for bad deeds that I would run totally amok. You are the one who said that in the absence of a belief in god, your would rape, murder and pillage whenever the opportunity presented itself. Yet, you think I am crazy. I am indeed ... Amused.

only you in your warped little mind could come to that conclusion from what I said. Either you are flat out insane or just so hung up on your religion that you can't see past it.

Where in Jesus' teachings does he say to do that? From what I have read he was a pretty passive guy. You should read some of his work and maybe it might help you with some of this hostility.

oh angel......you are the person that goes around to various topics bad mouthing Christians and mocking God. Jesus got angry in the bible but guess you missed that. Probably too busy posting on atheist message boards.

LOL!

In truth? I doubt he attends anything local-- he's too full of himself and full of vitriol to be in a social group.

I have read the alleged words of Jesus.

Many-many times. I used to have the 4 gospels pretty much memorized, in fact.

One thing is clear? You are not very representative of what those stories talk about.

You **are** a hate-filled and horrible person, though.

... sad, really.

apparently you are also pretty entrenched in your atheist religion. So much so that you are unable to comprehend what you read. Christians don't abstain from sin because we are afraid, we abstain because we love God. I know the concept is foreign to you but try and think outside your little box no matter how hard it may be.

Yeah...you abstain simply because you love god...if you didn't love god you apparently would be a murdering psychopath. Fortunately for society not all of us have to have a love for a god to be stable human beings...some of us have sense enough to be moral and have love for our fellow man without having an imaginary friend... That is one reason why I really don't care if you love your imaginary friend cause if its what you need to keep you from contaminating society even worse, then by all means.

well what you don't understand is that you aren't good. You have done things in this life, and continue to do things, that are wrong. No matter how good you think you are you really are far from it. If you actually did go to church all those years then you should already know this. Ultimately you and you only will pay the price for your arrogance and denial. Don't say you were never told.

You and I have already agreed more than once that everyone is not free from doing "bad" things in there life...I just wonder what you assume that I do in my life that is so horribly "sinful" as compared to you.

didn't say you did anything "horribly sinful" as you put it. You were born a sinner just like everyone else. You can do all the "good" things you want to in life but its not enough. I'm sure you have lied before and probably a handfull of other things that most don't consider to be good. You are far, far from perfect.

why not steal, kill, rob, lie, cheat, etc.? Why does it really matter to you? We are all animals anyway and survival of the fittest is how we got to this stage right? You have no basis for your belief if you are an atheist/evolutionist. You have to borrow from Christianity which is very hypocritical of you. You can't have it both ways dear.
In this statement you are making the assumption that because I do not possess faith in god that I think that it's ok to steal, kill, rob, lie and cheat.

You can possibly be this difficult to have a conversation with in real life.

Again, you have confused what you, yourself have done and are trying to project it onto someone else.

I have not insulted anyone, not even you. I have called you ignorant plenty of times and pointed out how filled with hate and intolerance you are.

Every other post you put up is: "your sad or pathetic or you have a lonely life"

I have said NOTHING about God other than I don't believe he exits in the same way you do.

Mocking God? You just flat out made that up.

Jesus got angry with the money changers at the temple John 2:16.
"You have turned my fathers house into a market"
I have to say that i agree, making money off religion is enough to make anyone sick to their stomach.

Lastly, can you not see the dichotomy of you saying I have missed the point because I'm too busy posting on atheists message boards and then you post that on an atheist message board?

angel you go around posting anti God crap in various topics. You are obsessed not only with God but with gays.

Didn't say you thought it was okay to do these things........I'm saying you have done some of these things therefore you aren't nearly as good as you think you are.

I am not in favor of RELIGION, I am really not in favor of religion being used to repress and deny basic human rights to anyone.

I am not anti god, if one exist i would be happy to have a conversation with he/she/them. I have plenty of questions for them.

Give ONE example of anything anti-god that I have said.

Sure I have said that I have not been provided with sufficient evidence to convince me that a god or gods exist but thats hardly anti-god. If you show some good evidence i would be happy to listen.

It is religion I am speaking out against, more specifically the people that use religion as a means to justify their on sick ,carnal, ignorant, sexist, homophobic agendas.
