What's funnier is how atheists have blind religious faith in fraudulent scientists and are willing to go to hell with them, lol.

"Scientific views end in awe and mystery, lost at the edge in uncertainty, but they appear to be so deep and so impressive that the theory that it is all arranged as a stage for God to watch man's struggle for good and evil seems inadequate."

That's a great point. And that's why so many scientists have given us bad answers. They were fraudulent with their research and they were WRONG, lol.

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.
I am a good father to my kids. That's why I am a hero to them. It doesn't surprise me that you don't get that. You probably think your father is a worthless dick, right?

As for the satan/ boogie-man story.... ROTFLMAO!!!!!!!! Grow up little boy. Your silly myth may keep you shaking in your little cowboy boots, and keep you from asking questions that your silly religion can't answer, but I am way past that childish stupidity.

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.
We don't want to lose you – what would we do for laughs?
Oh, wait - we still have Khatru, lmao.
Assumptions on your part show your ignorance. Not that we needed any more examples, you have given plenty thus far, and I expect more to come.

“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.

[Funny, they noticed increased business, lol.]
That's one of your more interesting articles. Discrimination is always a bad thing. I will be interested on how this turns out.

And what is funniest of all is how some poor, little theist tries to divert attention away from his lack of proof for his childish myth, by trying to discredit science. And than tries in vain to tie science to atheism. LMAO!!!

Poor Derelict, his stinks of desperation. But keep plugging away, we can always use the laugh!

Your complaint seems to be with Michael Newdow, lol.
Send him an email and let him know you don't like him.
I'm sure he will be crushed.
Hey, Hedonist - your little friend and fellow religionist doesn't know who Michael Newdow is - is that the kind of people you hang out with?
Why would I bother, I know nothing of him. That you have posted his name is in no way significant to me. It is you who attempting to bottle me with your own brand of sleaze. I don't fit there at all.
I see you as someone who would walk into a room of people, pass out small spray bottles, and tell everyone to spray it on their face. That they will like it, and some of them, do just that. There is some people who says "What is it?", to which you say, "try it you will like it". And more spray their faces, still some don't and you try cajoling them into trying it. They ask again "what is it".

After awhile, no one else is going to spray themselves, and the ones that did are all waiting for whatever, and then you tell them, "The bottle contains flesh eating bacteria, and I can tell you how to keep it from eating your face".

Do you think you can now get these people who have sprayed their faces, to do whatever you say?
You are Christainity and I do not spray my face

There were no assumptions. You failed to see the link and asked for it again. Same old you as ever. You don't read the material, then you reply. If at any time you want to ignore my posts, that's fine, but if you choose to reply, please read what you are relying to, or don't bother. Things always work better in forums when it's done that way, lol.

You may clothe and feed your children and entertain them, but no, you're not a good father to them because you turned them away from God, and they will go to hell with you.

And you know this because you already said you weren't always an atheist, which means you left God, and will suffer the consequences of your choice.

You'll find out how big a hero you are to them down there in hell -
And your place in hell will be hotter than most, since the souls of your children will be lost because of your false atheistic religion.

So how many of you atheists out there feel about those animal crush videos by 'Pit Boss' Stevens of Pittsville, VA being ruled as free speech by the U.S. Supreme Court!?
http://m.washingtontimes.com/news/2009/apr/21...

"Mr. Stevens’ attorneys describe one film called “Catch Dogs and Country Living” as documenting “the use of pit bulls to help catch prey during hunting expeditions, as well as the training of dogs for such hunting purposes.”

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.
Considering what it is claimed to be, why would you think heaven holds any appeal, for us?

Will the people who worshipped your god during biblical times, be in heaven? I'd think that any men who'd raped 3 year old girsl, are not worthy to sit by my side, anywhere. You may have less scruples than that though.

Maybe you and they, can sit at the veiwing window into hell and watch that toddler pay for her sins.
