Don't dictate beliefs

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

LOL!! Another example of the insecurity of the spinless godbot!!
My wife was agnostic when we met. LOL!!! That didn't last long!! A little logic and reason goes a long way!!!
I have to tell you all this one(you'll be so proud!). My oldest son is dating a young lady who was a 'go to church every sunday, raised christian from birth, bible thumper. She took great pride in her knowledge of the bible, and "loved jesus". Well, eventually, religion came up, and she was horrified to learn that my son was an atheist. So, he asked me what to do. I advised him to let me talk to her, so he did. That poor girl didn't stand a chance!! LOL!! It took a while, and quite a few talks, but she is now quesioning the very existance of jesus, and is mad at her folks for brainwashing her from birth to believe in such unfounded rubbish. She now considers herself agnostic, and is quickly approaching atheist. Yes, she still attends church because her parents make her go, but she now sees it as unbelievable, and primative. She is a smart girl. Reason and common sense free another ex-cultist.
I have found that the young people are much easier to help. They always have some fear, but it is much easier to get them past that, and they are more open-minded. I wish it was always as easy as this one, but I'll take em when I can!
I hope you don't mind if I butt into this forum. I have read a few of your posts and I can't quite figure out the general direction of this forum. Are you some kind of atheist missionary? For what purpose do you convince people that there is no god? How did you arrive at your conclusion that there is no God?

There is no proof that any god ever existed.

What would you consider to be proof that any god ever existed if such proof were to exist?

What constitutes as proof that anything at all ever existed?

You sound pretty confident that there is no proof, so I must assume that you have taken the opportunity to seek for such proof, but you haven't found it yet.

What have you done to seek proof that any good ever existed?

What kind of proof have you been looking for?

How did you determine what kind of proofs an existing God would demonstrate if in fact there is no existing proof from a god to compare to?

Who is jehobah?

Why all this slang? It kinda discredits those who use that inaccurate terminology. Why not use accurate references?

I didn't know Jehovah had a son. Which faith believes that Jehovah had a son? Jehovah's witnesses?

This is an Atheism Forum. It's the theist missionaries that keep popping up on here entertaining us with their myths, superstitions, and folklore, that was mainly written in the Bronze Age by illiterate sheep herders and goat ropers.

Convincing others that there is no god is not our job, because it's yet to be proven that there is one.

Thanks for the explanation. That saved me a lot of time reading everything. So at this point in the progression of the forum, is the main objective to logically disprove the existence of a god?

Yes, he's an atheist missionary in the atheist religion. I have posted many links here confirming that atheism is a religion – there are atheist ministers, atheist sermons on line, atheist churches – even an atheist bible.

The Unfit and Inferior

Exerpts from What is Eugenics?, chapter 14, 1932 3rd ed.

Leonard Darwin

“AL of us are being greatly damaged by the presence of the unfit and the inferior in the ranks of the nation. If those included in these classes have large families, this injury to our country will be slowly increased as the generations succeed each other. And in all probability, from this cause, racial deterioration is now actually taking place very slowly but very steadily.”

[Leonard, of the Darwin family, and his suppression of the races.]

continued:

“All this we have seen, and the question is, What can be done to safe-guard the nation against this treacherous disease?”

In the first place, how are the individuals to be selected who ought to have either small families or no children? This question has already been answered as regards the insane, mental defectives, criminals, and the diseased. If parenthood were to be entirely prohibited amongst all these classes, not only would all these particular troubles be slowly lessened in the future, but in all probability something would thus be done which would tend to produce a much more widespread improvement… The elimination of the mifit, however beneficial in itself, might not alone prevent a deterioration in the breed from taking place.”

[I wonder how Leonard would like today's marriages and mixed races?]

Some people define intelligence as the value of light and truth. We can not have truth unless we obtain it by seeking after it. Truth can be sought and found as we ask questions; questions about ourselves, about others' assertions, and about god.

Would you rather I try to impose my belief system on you while making dozens of incorrect assumptions about what you believe? I don't like monologues and lectures, I like discussions. Thats why I came to the forum to talk with ya'll.

“Atheists Battle Against Religion”[and the atheists lose, lol.]

from ABC News

from within the text – near the end:

“Atheists who envision a world without religion may have a while to wait. While polls show that the percentage of Americans who say they're not part of an organized religion has grown from 8 to 14 percent, only two percent of Americans identify themselves as atheist or agnostic.”
