Khatru was trying to make a point, and failed.
Langs was posting about atheists being in the minority.
Khatru replied to him: "You should know that being in the minority doesn't mean you're wrong. What percentage of the population did Noah and his family make up?“
Langs replied,“100%” LOL
A better question would have been, what percentage of the population thought the earth was flat a one time?

The slaughtered ones had their chance for redemption and "missed the boat" - that's our point.
So --- you're finally catching on that it doesn't pay to mess with God, lol.
Fortunatly, it's all just a silly fairy tale. You do realize that the flood as described in the bible is impossible don't you?

If you studied your Bible, you would know the answer to your questions. They aren't new questions.
The short answer is that the innocent children who were too young to be held accountable for disbelief, or lack of knowledge, will be in heaven, therefore better off than they were on earth.
Their godless parents, who knew to accept God, but refused, will be in hell, due to their own choice - just as you will be if you reject God.
The choice is all yours.
Really, where does it say that?

Yes, you will not answer this.

(Watch the foolish atheist try and prove me wrong)
No, your wishful thinking answered it. I gave you a question to ask him(Which you won't)

That proves you wrong.

If you know all the ins and outs of this puppet thing, you must be guilty of it.
Not at all. It just takes about ten seconds of thought to figure it out.

Oh, ten seconds of thought. That explains why you can't get it.

Tell it to the neurosurgeon.
He knows way more about it then a thread troll!
Um, when mental instability hits, from the lack of oxygen of the dying brain, you also lose a lot of information. People can have complete personality changes from a bump to the brain, because part of what makes them who they are dies when that happens, same concept here. Same thing as Alzheimer's, except that's reversible and brain damage, such as from nearly dying, is not.

Have you ever seen what happens in the brain when someone is terrified? It's a pretty image on the scan but what those images mean is just as frightening as the terror the subject goes through. In a matter of moments, once the brain realizes it's dying, it goes through this chaotic moment of rationalization, attempting to make sense of things which are not real. In that process it becomes highly suggestive, and the most common myths will become tangible to that person as a result, making them believe beyond a shadow of doubt that their hallucinations were real. In Iran they see 72 virgins, even if they're atheists, during NDEs, it all depends on the local common mythology.

Do you believe in Noah's flood?
Well, since I called it a fable, I would say not.

Did all the children of the world in the story of Noah's flood die horrible drowning deaths?

No not at all, for me,being moral and giving help to the less fortunate doesn't bother me at all.
What is it that scares you so much about there being a God?
You poor thing, having to live your whole life in fear.

"Snake boy who's my God?"
It doesn't matter who you think your God is. All gods are make-believe. I would guess you call yourself a christian. Feel free to correct me if I am wrong, but I'm not.

"Do know him?"
Nope, and neither do you in any real sense.

"Can you prove he doesn't exist?"
Actually, it depends on which one you worship. If you want to tell me, I will certainly prove that it is a myth, depending on which one you choose.

Oh, and I am still waiting for those initials. LOL!! What's wrong, cat got your fables' tongue? Isn't it funny, as long as you were asking the questions, you claimed he was chatting up a storm, but when it came down to a question that YOU don't know the answer to, your weeny, little, "all-knowing" god seems to have gotten his little, "all-knowing", imaginary, ass kicked!! LOL!!! It's funny how that happens every time!! LMAO!!!

I still give Langoliers credit for being the expert on Noah and his family, lol.
I used to be able to name all of Santa's reindeer.

And my daughters were experts on the family of Disney princesses: Jasmine, Pocahontas, Tiana, Mulan, Snow White, Cinderella, Aurora, Ariel, and Belle.
