Don't dictate beliefs

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

God is real.
Here's a real world myth: The serpent was right say something intelligent.
LOL
Your god is no more real than the Great Dreamtime Snake of the Australian Aborigines.

Prove your god first, then we can talk about the rest of the nonsense associated with it. As far as you have asserted, Zeus is real, Cthulhu is real, even Xenu.
He won't be able to do that.

Christians proclaim their god is real but not once in nearly 2000 years have any of them been able to prove it.

No wonder Islam started - they got fed up waiting for the no-show god.

Just goes to show how much hatred there is in the myth of Christianity.

Thank you for your very original and enlightening post. I have never heard it put quite that way before. You sure know how to think up some convincing arguments!!!
Send it in to your church headquarters for review, lol.
Tell them about pink unicorns too - they might not have heard that one yet.
Yeah, I'm a regular wordsmith.

See, you want me to answer your questions, then you don't trust me. Have I ever told you anything that wasn't true?

I'd love to meet you there, but I'm too busy looking up fraudulent scientists.
Thanks for the link. Maybe I'll join!
Next time though, try to be a bit more observant. It says on the page that there are no more spots left!! You went and got me all excited for nothing!!

But in case you want to see what's going on in your back yard..... http://www.thinkatheist.com/group/dallastexas...

Maybe you can go on down there and set them straight. LOL!!! I guess Dallas is a little more liberal than you thought!

Oh, poor Serpy – always searching for proof.
Your atheist faith has failed you because you know your worthless evidence in science is fraudulent, yet you can't accept God because you haven't seen him when you're out working in your yard.
You are truly a tormented soul.
Poor Derelict, I have no "atheist faith". I don't believe in bigfoot either, but I don't have "faith" that he doesn't exist. The part you don't get, is that it wasn't atheist faith that failed me, it was christian faith that failed me. Just like you, I require some kind of proof to believe wild tales. The difference between us is that in the case of god, you suspended that requirement. I bet you can't even explain why that is.

As for science, I have explained before that I don't have blind faith in science, but, I have proof that science has accomplished many great things. I felt that way when I was a believer too, so it is unrelated to my atheism. Remember, there is no requirement that an atheist even be aware of science. It is simply a lack of belief in god. Why you can't understand that is a mystery.

That's not perfect, that's imperfect.
You're a leading example of imperfection, yet God gives you the same opportunity to go to heaven as anyone else. That shows God's greatness, not his imperfection. This is something you fail to comprehend, lol.

It's interesting that you should mention the “Dreamtime Snake of the Australian Aborigines”, which has certain roots in fraudulent science. I think it was your science god who evolved from them, lmao.

What did you do that was heroic – became an atheist, lol? Wow, how much effort did that take?

Satan will reward your heroism, and God will allow you to go to the hell you have chosen for yourself. You will also be held accountable to God for the lost souls of your kids.

So? You also asked me for the link to the place, even though it was in my first post, which clearly shows you can't remember anything, so eating there previously won't help you.

Better print that map and take it along.

Blah, blah, blah.......just keep pretending there is no fraud in science.

Some night when you are sitting out under the moon, meditate, and ask your self - if there is so much science fraud now, with all these wonderful “peer review” systems in place – how much MORE fraud there was when Darwin was at work with Haeckel.

You just keep trying to convince yourself of your faith in science, lol.

There's no such thing as god, and wishing it to be real doesn't make it real no matter how hard you try.

We pity you idiots who delude yourselves and expect us intelligent people to stoop down to your ignorant and dishonest level and "play pretend" with you.

Grow the f*ck up you liar.

“Restaurant Owner Fights Atheists Over Dinner Discount for Church Bulletins “

[An example of atheists trying to dictate their beliefs]

“It has been a Sunday tradition for many years at restaurants all over America: Bring in a church bulletin and get a discount on Sunday dinner. But a restaurant in Columbia, Pennsylvania, is now under investigation by the Pennsylvania Human Rights Commission after a self-identified atheist filed a charge of discrimination against it over its church discount.

Pennsylvania's Lancaster Journal reported that John Wolff, a retired electrical engineer as well as a member of the Freedom From Religion Foundation (FFRF), filed the charge against Columbia's Lost Cajun Kitchen (pictured), which offers a 10-percent discount to patrons who bring in a Sunday church bulletin.

continued:

The attorney, Rebecca Markert, insisted that the discount, offered by thousands of restaurants across the nation for years,“violates the federal Civil Rights Act in addition to provisions of state civil rights statutes.” Markert quoted the Civil Rights Act as mandating that “all persons shall be entitled to the full and equal enjoyment of the goods, services, facilities, privileges, advantages, and accommodations of any place of public accommodation … without discrimination on the ground of race, color, religion, or national origin.” Commented the attorney:“As a place of 'public accommodation,' it is illegal for Lost Cajun Kitchen to discriminate, or show favoritism, on the basis of religion."

continued:

“Fox reported that Prudhomme “wondered if their other discounts might be considered discriminatory — like the one on Tuesday night — where kids under 12 get to eat free. Or what about the senior discount?'Could someone under 65 complain?' she asked.”

Prudhomme told the Lancaster Journal that, as it stands now, she and her husband are not likely to back down, and, in fact, have availed themselves of legal counsel to fight the discrimination charge.“We have people who say we should do everything they want, and bend over backwards,” she said, but added that “I'm an American. This is an independent restaurant. I can do as I wish and I'm going to continue to offer the church-bulletin discount.”

According to the York Daily Record, a local newspaper, the Prudhommes' willingness to stand up to the type of intrusion the FFRF and its agent are attempting has actually paid off in increased business for the Lost Cajun Kitchen.“It definitely has picked up,” Sharon Prudhomme said.

“With the First Church of Atheism you can become ordained quickly, easily, and at no cost.”

“As a legally ordained minister, you will be able to perform weddings, funerals, commitment ceremonies, and other functions that are reserved for members of clergy.”

Also you can order your marriage certificates from the church at this page:

Thanks to whomever is judging my posts with negative marks as soon as they appear on the board.

I appreciate it.

As long as I know atheists are giving me bad grades, I know I'm on the right track.

It is most flattering to me when atheists hate my comments.

LMAO
