Thanks. It is always good to see your insightful posts too. The difference between me and Wimp-Lo is that I have helped many people throw their belief in a myth away, which I see as good. He also helps people turn away from the myth(Actually, I have saved some of his posts to show others the violence his religion teaches), but he sees that as bad(If he sees it all). The best part is, that I can post all of that here, and it doesn't make any difference to someone like him. He can't help himself.
I'll see you around.:)

I will post to you this one last time.
I have not lost anything. Loss or win is in the eye of the beholder. From my standpoint, you have failed miserably. You haven't convinced anyone that science is flawed. Everything you have posted demonstrates that the science community corrects itself, while the religious community denies it's errors. I believe I was one of the first persons to answer your first post. I answered you without hostility, and you ignored it, because you were (As you put it) looking to "insult and berate". That makes you a troll. On the other hand, I have suceeded in showing anyone reading this what you really are about. I have suceeded in demonstrating that religion does not work, at least in your case. Even if you had a valid point somewhere along the line(I certainly didn't see one), it was lost in the very hostility that you implied to be a shortcoming of we atheists in your first post. So from my perspective, you have failed miserably, while I have ccomplished something, through you, that furthers atheism.
I am sure none of this will get through to you, but that's ok. The folks that it is written for will understand. You undoubtably will get the last post. Why that is important is beyond me, but hey, everyone has their little obsessions. You certainly do help atheism. Keep up the good work!
Cheers!!
I knew we could count on you to come back “one last time”, lol.
That was “sweet.”
Not that I care about your “standpoint”, but see it anyway you want, if that makes your wounds feel better.
I don't need to convince anyone of the flaws in science – they are documented in the scientific sources I posted and the links that are still on the board.
You point out my insults, but excuse your own, and try to paint yourself as the victim, lol. If I were to list all of your posts that were insults against God and Christianity, there would be too many words to fit into a post.[Not to mention your ungodly insults to Christians in all the other forums where you spread your poison.]
I don't care about your insults against me because they don't damper my spirits one bit – I just consider the source.
You say,“religion does not work, at least in your case.”
Oh, at least not in my case? But in some cases it does? Hmmm – coming from you, that's surprising. Maybe there is hope for you yet.
I'm sorry I wasn't your door mat.
I don't care which of us gets the last post. Come back or stay away – no one said you had to announce your sad departure.

You're absolutely right.

These people troll because they know they've already lost.

Trolling is all they have left.

It's sad that something that obvious and simple had to be explained to you.
You need to recruiting of that we're all sure.

<quoted text>Changing faith can only happen after indoctrination.
Being without theism is being atheist, and if infants were imbued with theism, then Sunday school would be an unnecessary tool and all children would have the same brand of theism. So which god are you pretending, exists?

Wiki's data applies to non beleievers, more so than to atheist
"Changing faith can only happen after indoctrination. "

Nice try!

The atheist on this thread claim all humans are born atheist. KJV claimed that atheism was a conscious decision
If you look back they ( your clan ) rejected that and insisted that all humans were born atheist.
Therefore with the world population of atheist being 2.3% that would mean that 97.7% have left your faith. LOL

"Everyone is born atheist. Religion is learned. As a learned behavior, peoples' religion can be accurately predicted by the religion of their parents and the place where they
live. Therefore it is no surprise that 77% of Americans are Christian, 97% of Saudis are Muslim, 95% of Thais are Buddhist, 80% of Indians are Hindu and 85% of Swedes have no religion.

Religionists do not want to admit that everyone is born atheist. The statement infuriates them. Religionists want to deny the facts. They call this faith--persisting in believing something despite contrary facts. They act as if faith is a good thing. But it does not
change the fact that everyone is born atheist, religion is learned. Perhaps religionists fear that if they admit religion is learned, people will realize that it can be unlearned."

Now to address your scampering. I was a baptist growing up in church every Sunday without fail. We had a nightly family bible study and prayer before each meal, bedtime and so on. I progressed past it unlike you. I am we'll versed in the fictional book known as the bible and the pagan polytheistic religion known as Christianity.

You have a paganized version of the Jewish faith and a poorly bad NT that makes so many mistakes about the OT it's laughable. Had Constatine not forced Christianity down people's throat with the sword and spear you would be arguing about Zeus or Mithras right now.

I see you changed you picture!

LOL

You're 48 years old who wears a moo moo and slippers all day. You have big thick glasses, you have no clue what makeup is, you have more gray hair each day, you had it dyed once but now it has grown out about 8 inches. Your breast are down to your belly and are as flat as a skunk run over by a convoy.
You've not shaved you legs or arm pits in years. Yes you're living in a dream land. Except I know you.

When you think (I know it's something most of you know nothing about)
About it losing 97.7% of your clan is pretty bad, we're putting atheist extension year on a Vegas board and it's getting lot's of hits just none out past ten years!!! LOL

The seven deadly sins are a laugh, just try getting out of the "no bastards, even unto the tenth generation, will be getting into heaven", thingy. That means that probabally less than ten humans since the beginning of time will achieve entrance through those pearly gates. Even the Rabbi Jesus will be in hell, he is after all, a bastard.

Funny thing about that, the bastard, his children, his grand children, his great grand children, his great, great garand children and his great, great, great grand children plus four more generations of his, will not be going to heaven, but two people in this scenario are not doomed for their sin. Guess who? That's right, the two people who created the bastard in the first place, will not be doomed to hell. Amazingly fair and loving condemnation for your god to level on those who were innocent, don't cha think?
Oh that's funny!

Tell me have you figured out how to police your ancestors actions, from two hundred years ago? It must be rough knowing they most likely have doomed your great great grand children, along with your parents, your self, and your children to hell.
Doesn't sound like you have a firm grasp on three things.

1) Christianity
2) Reality
3) your membership!!

This is so much fun because you all hand over all these hand grenades and all we have to do is pull the pin and toss it back.

"All humans are born atheist!"

Ok so you start with 100% of the human population and it's now 2.3%

The 100% is your claim

The 2.3% is the estimated current world population of atheist.
