Very interesting article. However, most likely you won't receive any answers to your questions. Religious people would rather avoid questioning their faith, as it will shatter their already fragile faith. There's no religious person on earth who doesn't have a smidgen of doubt in their beliefs.

Indeed.

We know they are nearly as faithless as atheists are, because they must **repeat** the lies that support their faith on a weekly or even more frequent basis.

That's the trouble with lies-- without constant repeating of them?

People soon realize they **are** lies and change their minds...

Non-belief's that simple, yet some religionists cannot understand it. Religion's the fault of religionists, not non-believers.

Religion = superstition

Indeed.

Since religion is **forced** into child brains by endless repetition?

There is some small hope that repeating the **truth** about it, may finally get past the brainwashing....

... of course, you have to have an actual **brain**.

Alas, many religionists have brains that are no longer functional.

LCN is an excellent example-- he cannot write on his own, but must resort to cut-and-paste instead.

It's rather sad to witness.

Or if they do, the answers will be likely lifted from apologists sites like gotquestions or catholic answers.

Indeed. They dont really know. At best they think they may up their chances. Although you do get the born again types who think they are "saved" no matter what.

It is evident that you do not know any one who is Jehovah's witness.
What you wrote may be true of people who are religious because their appearance demands it or they are religious because they make their living preaching their philosophy holding a Bible and quoting a Scripture or two.
The television if filled with great pretenders who are very rich by being religious teachers. 2Corinthians 11:14,15

Jehovah's witnesses welcome anyone to question their faith in God's word the Bible, and want everyone to learn their Bible so they can have the hope of living forever in the new world that is soon going to replace this one. No one will survive the end of this world unless you know, love and serve the one true God and father of Jesus, Almighty God Jehovah. Matthew 22:37-39

There are over 8 million people who are serving Jehovah God today, by being obedient to the direction of Jesus our reigning King in heaven, millions of people are studying their Bibles to make the necessary adjustments to survive the end with angelic protection at Armageddon.

I am sure people said the same thing to Noah, who spent over 50 years building and preaching a flood was going to destroy everything on the earth then. Can you imagine only 8 people who obeyed God and what they accomplished? Today Jehovah's witnesses are also accomplishing what Jesus said would be done before the end of this world. The end will be swift just like the flood.

(Matthew 24:14).&#8239;.&#8239; .And this good news of the kingdom will be preached in all the inhabited earth for a witness to all the nations; and then the end will come.

I **do** remember **you*.

And you would have to take special improvement classes to qualify as "low grade moron".

Yes-- that is deliberately insulting.

But not **nearly** as insulting as you, claiming the silly and fictional bible is anything BUT fiction.

No self-respecting deity of any merit, would suffer such as the silly bible to represent it's message.

None.

Noah? Wasn't he supposedly 600 years old,**before** he started building an ark?

What was his god **doing** for those 600 years while Noah puttered around?

And?

Why did Noah have but ***three*** sons, in an age of **no** contraceptives!

THREE???

What? Noah's wife was **that** horrid? That Noah only had sex with her THREE times in SIX HUNDRED YEARS?

My, my.... that is..

... unbelievable.

Even more than your silly idea of a global flood...!

If we are going to go with imaginary beings?

I would much prefer a reasonable one-- such as The Flying Spaghetti Monster.

In being atheist, there is no opinion to be had, nor to be posted.

Incessant miss-definition(Do you need the correct definition again?)by the theist, of the word "atheist", requires continual correction.

Your diagnosis of OCD is most likely incorrect. Consider it patience and a willingness to teach, even those who are both abusive and cursed with the malignantly foul mind set of HTT*, that allows them to condemn their fellow man.

Had he existed, they very well might have, but since that tale has long ago been proven to be pure balderdash, why even go there? World-wide flood has never happened. Man and his penchant for recording history has bested yet another god, and that recorded history proves it.
BTW: The all powerful god you are hawking, was beaten by the iron chariot. Actually not very godly nor powerful.

It takes only a very tiny bit of faith to believe in the Creator and God of the Bible, Almighty God Jehovah. The person who can't see with his eyes of understanding, could never see the truth of Scriptures or believe in God, that is not our problem. Matthew 17:20

The world wide flood did happen, and the physical evidence is still available today, and this world will end very soon, when the United Nations declares all religion is now under the control of Government and not a god. The holy war of Islam is controlling the flow of power over people, and the Roman Catholic Church who lost that same control over millions of people, has fulfilled Bible prophecy.

You have no good evidence for the above. Just the deranged writings of goat herders and superstition, and paranoid conspiracy theories. To have a rational set of beliefs you need to back them up with good evidence.

Top Ten Signs You're a Fundamentalist Christian

10 - You vigorously deny the existence of thousands of gods claimed by other religions, but feel outraged when someone denies the existence of yours.

9 - You feel insulted and "dehumanized" when scientists say that people evolved from other life forms, but you have no problem with the Biblical claim that we were created from dirt.

8 - You laugh at polytheists, but you have no problem believing in a Triune God.

7 - Your face turns purple when you hear of the "atrocities" attributed to Allah, but you don't even flinch when hearing about how God/Jehovah slaughtered all the babies of Egypt in "Exodus" and ordered the elimination of entire ethnic groups in "Joshua" including women, children, and trees!

6 - You laugh at Hindu beliefs that deify humans, and Greek claims about gods sleeping with women, but you have no problem believing that the Holy Spirit impregnated Mary, who then gave birth to a man-god who got killed, came back to life and then ascended into the sky.

5 - You are willing to spend your life looking for little loopholes in the scientifically established age of Earth (few billion years), but you find nothing wrong with believing dates recorded by Bronze Age tribesmen sitting in their tents and guessing that Earth is a few generations old.

4 - You believe that the entire population of this planet with the exception of those who share your beliefs -- though excluding those in all rival sects - will spend Eternity in an infinite Hell of Suffering. And yet consider your religion the most "tolerant" and "loving."

3 - While modern science, history, geology, biology, and physics have failed to convince you otherwise, some idiot rolling around on the floor speaking in "tongues" may be all the evidence you need to "prove" Christianity.

2 - You define 0.01% as a "high success rate" when it comes to answered prayers. You consider that to be evidence that prayer works. And you think that the remaining 99.99% FAILURE was simply the will of God.

1 - You actually know a lot less than many atheists and agnostics do about the Bible, Christianity, and church history - but still call yourself a Christian.
