oh iseeyou.........hinduism, buddhism, shintoism, atheism. Its an ism.......meaning its a religion or a cult. You believe we snapped into existence out of thin air......wait...there wasn't even any air. What is it exactly that you believe? I'm never able to get a straight answer from an atheist on how the universe began.
cult
noun, often attributive \ˈkəlt\

: a small religious group that is not part of a larger and more accepted religion and that has beliefs regarded by many people as extreme or dangerous

: a situation in which people admire and care about something or someone very much or too much

: a small group of very devoted supporters or fans

The definition of religion shows that Atheism is not a religion so the first definition is out.
The second definition matches christianity perfectly.
The third definition matches christianity perfectly.

Sophomoric dullness at best.

But that would be a stretch.... a real, generous stretch.

newsflash isee.........atheism IS a religion. Did you not say you went to church all those years? And you are unfamiliar with the holy trinity? Guess you didn't pay attention at all.
So weak and dishonest that you can't even accept the definition of atheism!!!

Atheism is not a religion

If you have to have someone read to you aloud,
there's the problem. Who could have imagined
that Reasonable Man was functionally illiterate.

Some people fail to see any humor except slapstick.
Very dull minds. These are people one doesn't need
to know.

It sounds like your trying to have us explain abiogenesis to you.

I suggest you google it for yourself because:

1.this is too adult of a conversation for you.

2.you wont appreciate an explination because this is too adult of a conversation for you.

ahhhh the old abiogenesis nonsense. I was waiting for one of you to bring that up.

Abiogenesis (/&#716;e&#618;ba& #618;.&#629;&#712;d &#658;&#603;n&#616 ;s&#618;s/ AY-by-oh-JEN-&#601;-siss[1 ]) or biopoiesis[2] is a natural process by which life arises from simple organic compounds. Now where did these organic compounds come from????

You remember the kid in grade school that had low self esteem so they tried to belittle other kids in order to make themselves feel better? Uh huh angel....you were that kid and its carried over to adulthood.

sorry angel........none of your biz. It really shouldn't matter anyway. If Christians are following the bible then its clear homosexuality is wrong. I know some denominations have chosen to ignore Gods word and pacify today's politically correct crowd. Methodists for example have gone down this path. At least some of them have.

Its just that this is an open discussion forum where people come to exchange ideas and interact with one another.

If it doesnt matter then why not tell me?

I have told you plenty of things about my beliefs openly and freely because I am proud of them and happy with who I am.

I can imagine why you would so blatantly preach about how you are a Christian, yet when I ask which flavor of Christian (merely out of curiosioty) you tell me "its none of your business"

You have literally asked us to explain the origin of the universe for you.

Just dont see why this is a taboo subject.
I have follow up questions also.

Can you find some place else to ramble.
Plainly being intoxicated isn't against your
fundamentalist beliefs.

Burn a Methodist today.

yes angel......I'm sure you have a follow up. Actually I've already answered that before so go back and find it. What denomination shouldn't matter at all. The problem is we have too many denominations that fail to follow God's word.

Are you seriously going to beg me to repeat myself just so we can argue? Lol...I'm sorry, but that will not be happening. The jest of the convo is that you believe in god, and you think that it should be obvious that he/she exists...I do not, and I am aware of the fact that there is no solid proof for his existence.

As well they should considering that whole free will thing that you're supposed to believe in as well.
