Don't dictate beliefs

No one else can say otherwise? That is basically saying those who do "believe in God" are better? Hardly.

So if they are the children of atheists, they will be indoctrinated (by their parents) to the mind fantasy of evolution and godlessness. Right, but, thank God, that indoctrination doesn't always stick. Not all children follow what their godless parents taught them.
William J. Murray is the chairman of the Religious Freedom Coalition, a non-profit organization in Washington, D.C., active on issues related to aiding Christians in Islamic and Communist countries.
William Murray is the son of Madalyn Murray O'Hair,[1] a United States atheist activist who came to national attention in Baltimore, Maryland when she filed a lawsuit with the Supreme Court of the United States, claiming that compulsory prayer and reading of the Bible in public schools was unconstitutional.
Murray converted to Baptist Christianity in 1980. Learning of his conversion, his atheist mother commented: "One could call this a postnatal abortion on the part of a mother, I guess; I repudiate him entirely and completely for now and all times ... he is beyond human forgiveness." He expressed similarly negative feelings toward his mother in his first book, My Life Without God, in which he wrote: "She was just evil … She misused the trust of people. She cheated children out of their parents' inheritance." Murray also repudiated his mother after her death, saying "I used to ask people to pray for my mother's salvation. I don't do that anymore…. My mother was an evil person." He also blamed her for the death of his daughter and his half-brother, who were murdered at the same time.

If you knew what you were talking about, you'd be shoving your fist down your throat to shut your mouth up, before anyone heard you.
It's like hearing someone say the horse taught the colt to be a horse and luckily the colt couldn't remember how to be a horse.

The atheist is the default, it is what every one is before indoctrination. There is no indoctrination, to not iondoctrinate someone.

LOL. Nut Job.
No, you got it all wrong. I take the bible's word for it, and based on that, the buybull god is no god!

Okay, so here's the rest of your tripe.

As I said, theism is only a category. There are lots of different subcategories and religions under the umbrella of theism -- Hindus, Catholics, Orthodox Catholics, Protestants, Baptists, Mormons, etc.

There are also a lot of different subcategories of atheism -- Buddhists, Jainists, Humanists, etc.

As a category theism itself is NOT a belief in any specific thing. It just specifies those people who hold a belief in one or more deities.

As a category atheism itself is NOT a belief in any specific thing. It just specifies those people who do NOT hold a belief in one or more deities.

Anything else you try to add to that is just so much BS.

Are you a male, or a fat broad with boobs to your waist? I'm assuming your male. Most men grow up and don't stay “momma's boys”, or “grandma's boys” either, you wimp. I remember your early whiny little posts,“my grandma this”, my grandma that”, blah blah blah. Who gives a sh*t what your grandma does? And if you had any decency you wouldn't have introduced her to the forum in the first place since she's probably a fine person, and you're nothing but a piece of sh*t. Go sit on the toilet. As to what your pore old worn out grandma might tell me, I don't give a fu*k, got that? LMAO

Who appointed you judge of the forum?

Atheists always say they're winning, lol, and they think they can proclaim victory even when there is rotten egg all over their puny faces, lol.

You're the biggest loser in any forum I've ever been in. Your posts aren't worth stopping to read. You're a fool.

So go get rid of the rest of your poop, douchebag. You're full of it.

Atheism Is a Religion

Found within the text:

“Here you have the atheistic religion in a nutshell: superhuman agency, devotion, self-selecting groups of people. Add to that the intense—even religious—zeal with which many atheists defend their claims. Let me tell you: The angriest ones can be as malicious as a coven of Westboro Baptists at a veteran’s funeral. Bill Maher himself took five minutes at the end of the next week's show to rant against anyone who would call atheism a religion.”

continued:

Atheists should embrace their religiosity, recognize the biological component that drives them to make sense of the world like the rest of us, and church it up. As the Man from Galilee once put it, render unto Caesar what is Caesar’s, and to God what is God’s. If you don’t believe in God, then you don’t owe him anything. And if my Facebook friends are any indication, you lost your sense of humor ages ago. Which means you atheists may have nothing left to lose but your taxable status.

“The angriest ones can be as malicious as a coven of Westboro Baptists at a veteran’s funeral.”

[Amen!]

“... you atheists may have nothing left to lose but your taxable status.”

The Religion of Atheism

Some Atheists recoil at the claim that Atheism is a religion and consider the notion absurd. Many would consider Atheism the antithesis of religion. Maybe you’ve heard such remarks as,“If Atheism is a religion then bald is a hair color.”

[Poster's insert: Yes, we have – Hedonist took credit for that without mentioning he grabbed it from a “mold” and without attributing it to the real author.]

It is a false analogy that asserts all religions are defined by a belief in a deity which we know is inaccurate because of such religions as Unitarian Universalists, Taoists or Buddhists.

Nonetheless, how is it that we can purchase ‘The Good Book: A Humanist Bible’ that includes their own version of the ‘Ten Commandments’ or attend The First Church of Atheism with services provided by an ordained Atheist minister but we can’t buy a box of hair color called bald?

[LOL]

continued:

The ‘New Atheism’ is placing faith in the belief that there is no God. Their belief system is based on science and philosophy. The ‘New Atheists’ use this belief system to interpret and relate to the world around them, defining their worldview as an overall perspective of life and the universe.

Atheists are known to have their own prophets like Charles Darwin, Friedrich Nietzsche, Ludwig Feuerbach, Vladimir Lenin, Karl Marx, or Voltaire.

They have their own preachers such as Christopher Hitchens, Richard Dawkins, Sam Harris, and Daniel Dennett among others. Through their work these men are aggressively seeking to convert others.

Atheists have orthodoxy as they believe everything is unintentional, uninspired happenstance
via evolution. They base their beliefs on the ever changing developments of scientific scrutiny.

[Yes, atheism is a religion...]
continued:

“The ‘New Atheism’ is placing faith in the belief that there is no God. Their belief system is based on science and philosophy.”

[And they are very devout to their religion.]

You do apparently as you already admitted to being her secret admirer. You and your butt buddy langoqueers remind me of the old snl skit with Steve Martin and billy crystal I believe on a cruise ship trying to hook up with elderly women. Now keep your hands off those elderly people at the nursing home you freak.

Ewwwww!

In regards to the 2.3% figure just mentioned, the 2005 survey cited by Encyclopedia Britannica survey did not include Buddhist in regards to the 2.3% figure and Buddhism can be theistic or atheistic."
Wikipedia:
"Another survey attributed to Britannica shows the population of atheists at around 2.4% of the world's population.[citation needed] It is difficult to determine whether atheism is growing or not"
Wikipedia :
"2005 poll by AP/Ipsos surveyed ten countries. Of the developed nations, people in the United States were most sure of the existence of God or a higher power (2% atheist, 4% agnostic)"
Wikipedia :
"According to one estimate, atheists make up about 2.3% of the world's population"
2005? Did you have go that far back to find something relevant to your mistaken way of thinking? You could have just done what all the other religitards do. Make something up and lie. Even if it were true, theism is not just Christain, it is every bit of space cadet crap that can be imagined, even the guys who wait for the bus from outer space. Those are your theist!

100% of babies born to theist parents, are atheist.

100%.... we didn't lose them, we never had them, they are atheist at birth. That means without theism, it does not mean non believer, even those infants are non believers too.

Being the children of theist, they will be indoctrinated to whatever invisible magic friend mind fantasy their parents play at.

There are many thousands of theistic bents, that the theist parents could be indoctrinating their children into. You go ahead and claim them all for the loon side, the worship of any and every god from Achelois to Zeus, from Kali to Beelzebub, they all make up that ever shrinking percentage, they are the vanishing theist.

Once upon a time, all these gods were believed in, and now it's only a tiny percentage, that are left, with even a few believers. >>> godchecker.com
