Because he exposes your cult lies. That is why you hate him - because he tell you the truth to your face.

Most atheists have read the whole bible. Reading the whole thing, as opposed to the few pieces cherry picked by religious leaders for the flock to read is the shortest road to atheism.
I agree.

The Bible can be used to teach everything from love for one's fellow, to subjugation of women. Anything can be read into such old and irrelevant text.

gonna try to keep it as basic for "anti" as I can.

Why should anyone believe the Bible is divinely inspired?

What evidence can you provide that proves you claim?

What evidence can you provide that there is no God? If we only know 1% of all there is to know then how could you possibly know there isn't a God? There is a reason there are so few atheists. Its absurdity.

No-- I've never been happier than when I kicked toxic religion to the curb.

How,**exactly** is the following "sad"?

Quoting the ugly bible-- word-for-word-- is what you call "distortion"?

Really?

Yep.

It's quite common to mix a little bit of nutrition in with the poison grains.

That makes the poison a bit more palatable, I suppose.

You did not need to-- your projection of your hate was self-evident by this:

Instead of addressing my valid criticism of your beliefs?

You go on a personal attack-- displaying your hate for me for all to see.

Who Would Jesus Hate?

I bet **you** know... don't you?

Which god is that? Thor?

Well.... Thor as a god **does** have a pretty good case, now that you mention it.

Firstly, there's actual lightning. Thor is supposed to be the author of that.

Secondly, there are no Frost Giants anywhere on earth-- so far as anyone can tell.

And that is one of the major promises made by Thor to his followers: to rid the world of Frost Giants.

So, you may be correct: Thor may well have been real enough to rid the world of Frost Giants.

Besides: Thor has this really cool hammer.

And your god?

Got his sorry pansy-azz nailed to a stick...!!

...!!!

What a wimp....

bob its really sad that your kind has so much hate inside you. It really shows how unhappy and lost you are in life. You are completely blinded by your atheist religion that its really too bad.

All I really need to do, here?

Is ask you for your proof that there **is** a god.

I do not **need** to show that **all** possible god-memes are false.

All I have to do?

Is prove **your** god-meme is false-- which is quite easy.

Basically-- your god-meme is false, because you don't have any proof of any kind.

As in none at all-- nada, nothing, not-one-thin-fact.

... in support of your god-meme.

That?

That is more than sufficient proof to show your god-meme is false.

Thor, on the other hand? Would be ...

... a wee bit more difficult to prove false...

.. than... your god is.

oh my goodness. I can hear the desperation just by reading your pathetic words. You mean there are three??? wow how impressive lol Three whole atheists that gave to charity.
LOL...you're pathetic. Atheist or not, that is a enormous amount of money to put to something productive. Oh...I know what you're thinking though....my gosh think about how many more churches that could have built...lol

religious people are just more charitable and willing to give of their time and money. Its part of being a servant and being humble. Atheists for the most part are more self centered and don't have a reason to help others.
Excuse me....I am not self centered thank you very much. I think you should take a second and not be so egotistical. Also, people in churches, or religious people mostly tithe and give to charity because they want to boost their status in the church. It was that way in every church I ever attended. I watched grown ups talk about how much they spent, and how much they tithed....it was always a "I can give more" game. That's a huge characteristic in a lot of devout church goers that I've met.

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.
The only thing weird is that we continue to tell you the same screwed up stuff that's in your special book, and you continue to believe in it, and condone it. We don't believe in it, but when you continually try to throw it in our faces then, yes, we are compelled to give our opinions and factual information on the subject. Isn't that what you're on here for????

amazing how much hate all of you have. You sound extremely vile and unhappy. Very, very sad indeed.
Lol...I think it's funny that every christian comes on here and talks about all of the hate. You are the only person on here up to this post that has said anything about hate. It's amazing to me. However since you obviously have hate on the brain...I hate religions. You all think you are right...no matter what denomination. I could name them all off, but it would take forever. There are so many. Supposedly worshiping the same "god", but for some reason you guys can't decide on a book...a book that "god" supposedly wrote. Do you not find that a little weird (you seem to like that word lol)????
