Don't dictate beliefs

Sep 5, 2012 | Posted by: roboblogger | Full story: The Star Press

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

why not? if your child, the being u created killed another person, shouldn't they be punished?? "

Not by a god. It's people that want to punish you, and they speak through a god mask.

Clementia wrote, "i guess u would always love your child but as a good parent u should send your child to prison, right?"

Never. Perhaps you aren't familiar with American prisons.

Clementia wrote, " or should we also release all the murders and rapists in prisons?"

That has nothing to do with gods punishing people. Besides, the Christian god is infinitely more brutal that the American corrections system. The god tortures at a volume of 11 on a scale of 10, forever, with no hope of mercy, and to the benefit of nobody except perhaps the sadist monster it built.

Clementia wrote, "i hope i didn't say anything to hurt u, coz i didn't mean too!"

Thank you for your concern, but you needn't worry about that.
Even The Christian God says to abide by all of mans laws unless they conflict with Gods law. Murder breaks both laws.

<quoted text>No

He's a liar.

In one post he went to great pains to state that Noah and his family were the only people left after the biblical flood.

In another post he said that lots of people survived the flood.

Like I said. He has no credibility.

You three are the Holy Trinity?

I thought that was God, Jesus and the Holy Spirit?

You do realise you're blaspheming here by denying the Holy Spirit?

You're screwed, bub. You've just committed the one unforgiveable sin.

Let's see now, that's Longears burning for being a liar and you burning for denying the Holy Spirit.

Now that's progress.
I thought that was God, Jesus and the Holy Spirit?

Only if you're a Christian.
You don't sound like Christian so it should not matter to you. I know I don't care what he calls himself! I saw a poster calling himself GOD and you didn't rip him, was that because he was atheist?
Do you use a different set of rules for who you are debating?

Your a poor example of a atheist!
Most atheist are hate free. You have lots of hate. Hate is based on religion of one form or another. If you believe life is just that life, and death is lights out and humans are our own Gods why the need for hate to others that think their believes is correct when you have no proof that they are wrong?

You know there is a chance they are right and we are wrong.

I am honored, fine lady.
I'm sure that you saw this from Khatru, which originated with you: http://www.topix.com/forum/religion/atheism/T...
;)

Oh yes, I saw that. I was proud to see him using it. I always check out the way each poster customizes it. For me, that is where the fun lies, in those little hidden stingers amongst all the ha, ha' s.

But you are OK, with the Pagan start of Christainity?

You do realise that Satanism comes from Christainity, don't you. It is not from outside your little focus group, it is from it's midst.

<quoted text>
Proof? Of what? For what?
"Extraordinary claims require extraordinary evidence" - Carl Sagan
"What can be asserted without evidence can also be dismissed without evidence." – Christopher Hitchens
We don't need to prove that there are no gods to disregard Christianity and embrace rational skepticism and its three great contributions to humankind: atheism, secular humanism, and science.
“Skepticism is my nature. Freethought is my methodology. Agnosticism is my conclusion. Atheism is my opinion. Human[ism] is my motivation.”- Jerry DeWitt
Atheism freed man of the horror of death created by the church:
"To the philosophy of atheism belongs the credit of robbing death of its horror and its terror. It brought about the abolition of Hell." - Joseph Lewis
And it permits an authentic spiritual experience of our world.
"My atheism, like that of Spinoza, is true piety towards the universe and denies only gods fashioned by men in their own image, to be servants of their human interests." - George Santayana
Secular humanism gave us the philosophies of science and the modern secular state,including government, political freedom, and democracy for starters.
What have been the fruits of Christian theocracy? Crusades, inquisitions, witch burnings, organized pedophilia, strife, division, exploitation, guilt, shame and fear:
"Religion is based ... mainly on fear ... fear of the mysterious, fear of defeat, fear of death. Fear is the parent of cruelty, and therefore it is no wonder if cruelty and religion have gone hand in hand.... My own view on religion is that of Lucretius. I regard it as a disease born of fear and as a source of untold misery to the human race." - Bertrand Russell
So how much evidence do you need to abandon the church and its opinions, and embrace rational skepticism instead?
Who said anything about Christianity? Who cares about Christianity? Religion is religion. Dogma is dogma. You can scream in deaf ears all day for all I care. I was saying that religion and atheism are pretty much the same . They both have foundations in absolutism. The only claim that they have is that nobody has any proof to prove the other wrong.
Why don't you write aonther five paragraph long piece of drivel that repeats the same old shit? You can even throw some quotes in from reknowned people that carry your views to make your opinions appear more legitimate.
I don't know why you even bother with this idiot and his innane posts about about bad scientists are? The F@#k-nut doesn't even care if anyone responds to his posts.

Actually, it does. If you don't believe in the gods proposed by humans, then you are an atheist. If you believe the universe is "god," or something similar, then you are a deist.
Non-belief is what atheist is.
There is a difference.

Ok let me say it again using smaller words. I see you always taking up for godbots and bashing non believers. Walks like a godbot, talks like a godbot, acts like a godbot....

Anything else I can help you with half wit? Very good back your crayons then. That's a good boy.

Dismissed.

Half wit you do realize this is a forum and people can go back and read your posts defending believers and bashing non believers right? I know the concept must strain your IQ but you'll have to trust me on this one.

That'll be all troll dullard.

Well any Religion that has a focal point of a or many Gods can not be called fact just as saying there is no God be called fact. Simple fact is we don't know. Both side claim evidence and they are both correct there is evidence for both claims just no proof.
I do not know if any gods exist, just as I do not know if any vampires or leprechauns exist.

But I do know that the Christian "God" does not exist, as well as a several others. If you're interested how I know, I recently gave my argument here http://www.topix.com/forum/religion/atheism/T...

What was your point? I can't tell what part of my post you were replying to. That I should subject my children to American prisons? I don't care what the bible says about anything.

It helps if you make your points explicitly.
