It is **highly** doubtful that **you** know "dozens of folks".

Let alone, are on **speaking** terms with that many people...

Are you saying that those 2 thugs are not responsible for their actions by mental defect?
Are you saying that there was no racial or political motivation behind what they did?

Are you their lawyer?

Like most thugs, they clearly picked the religion that suited them best.

You are being totally dishonest, not only with yourself, but with everyone else.
Really judgmental one where have I been dishonest?

You spout hate and evil in your words.

You are being dishonest and disillusioning yourself.

By the way you probably know many atheist but they do not spout indignityas you do.

Sorry, but all of the hatred in this world comes strictly from atheists and atheism. Atheists are the most hate-filled people walking the planet.
These forums prove it. I've shown it to dozens of folks just since I've joined Topix and they are all appalled at what they read from atheists.
They agree with me that atheism is a mental disease and it is fully responsible for all of the corrupt and violent deeds we see on the news.
You are a liar.
You aren't sorry for the things that you say, and that is obvious in this post, so that is your first lie. The second lie would be the statement that all the deeds you see on the news are being done by atheists. If you watch the news, which I can only assume that you do, then you would know for fact that you cannot make such a bold statement cause they don't give a rundown of person's religious beliefs or non beliefs. Also, there are more religious people in this world than non religious so it would be impossible for there to be more crimes committed by the non religious.

As for you and your friends, you may not be receiving love because you are spewing hate. One good thing about being a non-believer is that we are who we are without the help or guidance from an imaginary father. We treat people the way they treat us. Unfortunately for you, your god expects you to see hatred, but still act with love and just from my observation from this post.....you are being very naughty....I think your being a hypocrit.

Atheism is evil is a reprobate. I find it hard to believe that someone can have as much hate and evil in their heart as atheism is evil has.

Lets try this story out for how morally sound your "god" is...

2 Kings 2:23-24

New International Version (NIV)
Elisha Is Jeered

23 From there Elisha went up to Bethel. As he was walking along the road, some boys came out of the town and jeered at him.“Get out of here, baldy!” they said.“Get out of here, baldy!” 24 He turned around, looked at them and called down a curse on them in the name of the Lord. Then two bears came out of the woods and mauled forty-two of the boys.

This is simply one example and I could continue if you like.

Your "god" killed 42 kids just for mocking someone...If you have children, would you think that it would be good morals to kill them for making fun of someone. No matter how many times you have warned them? Answer the questions that I ask please. It's very rude to have a discussion with someone, but ignore the person at the same time.

Very Cynical is good people-- a slight mistake here.

VC was speaking of the poster going by "atheism is evil".

A pair of double-quote marks makes all the difference in meaning...

At least in this story, the kids did something wrong. In the story of Job, his kids did nothing wrong but God killed them anyway to settle his bet with the Devil.

Both were characterized as egomaniacs and bullies, so it kinda stands to reason they wouldn't understand it anyhow.

Indeed. It also neatly illustrates the "value" bible-god places on women and children.

... as in: none at all.

Apart from being hostages/rewards to the more valued ... men.
