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.

What difference does it make what he meant? Is he a scientist? No. He's just a ranting atheist. Do you depend on him to let you know how you are to believe? What does science tell you about global warming? You don't ever research these matters to learn about them for yourself?
You are just a clueless, robotic spammer whose posts reflect your inablility to use science and reason, much less any kind of research. You are also reflective of the premise of the orignnal post of this thread: "Don't dictate beliefs....No one else can say otherwise? That is basically saying those who do "believe in God" are better? Hardly." You like your other annoying, parasitic trolls have been epic failures in everything you've tried to accomplish here.

“The Atheist Agenda is an organization founded in 2005 by a group of atheist and agnostic students and teachers from the The University of Texas at San Antonio. The group is dedicated to the philosophy of free thought, as well as promoting aggressive activism against theology and theological institutions, encouraging non-believers to take pride in their history and community, and providing to them the same fellowship that those of a religious background share.
That sounds terrific. I admire activism against the church, especially if it is aggressive. Is there a place I can make a charitable contribution? I'd like to help finance a billboard ad.

I think "Science rules, Jesus drools" would probably be vandalized. Likewise with "Are you borin' again? If so, STFU." or "Prays the Lowered" with a picture of somebody groveling in prayer. What do you think? Which do you like best?

Note the references to religion:“ providing to them the same fellowship that those of a religious background share”
Sorry, but I missed the religious reference there. All I see is the word "fellowship," which has nothing to do with religion. I use the word frequently to refer to what freethinkers do on Topix:
http://www.topix.com/forum/topstories/TOCO8TE...

BTW, did you get that new dictionary that I advised you to purchase? If the priests have all your money, you can still get free access to dictionaries on the Internet, like the one that defines fellowship this way:

"Fellowship - 1. Friendly association, esp. with people who share one's interests. 2. A group of people meeting to pursue a shared interest or aim."

Where's Jesus in that definition? Oh, Jesus! Where are you! Come out wherever you are!

Incidentally, you contrasted atheist with "those of a religious background," which is poorly worded, since many if not most of us have a religious background. You meant to contrast atheists with those with a religious foreground, meaning the presently religious.

He seems to think by bashing scientists by laughingly using other scientists ironically, this proves deities exist? Bottom line one can bash science all day and it still hasn't touched atheism because it still shows no proof for the existence of deities.
I am glad more and more people are turning away from the superstitious ways of the past. I am an optimist about the future.

Thank you, my friend.
I hope that what comes through is the contrast between Christianity, which he represents here, and humanism,my philosophy. His fund of knowledge is so underdeveloped, his judgment so poor, his psyche so dark, his worldview so primitive, his ethics so shabby, and his spirit so small.

WE DON'T WANT ATHEIST AGENDA
You're living in America now, correct? If that's how you feel, you should think about leaving. Do you know who else hates atheists? Saudi Arabia and Iran. You'll likely find kindred spirits there, where the atheist agenda is kept at bay using stones, hand amputations and beheadings.

You're enemies of the US Constitution. And you damage the nation in any way you can if it supports your church. I'd call you enemies of the people.

Not as much as they did under Christian tyranny. That provoked them to revolution.

Nonsense. Do whatever you like ... on YOUR property. Nail the scary chicken to the stick and shake it at the moon if that's what grounds and centers you. Just don't do it on public property or using public funds, because with irreligiosity growing so fast, and freethinkers becoming so emboldened, somebody's likely to insert the scary chicken beak first up your colon. I don't condone that for a moment. But I understand.

"God"? As if.

The neutering of your church can't come soon enough. Your religion's cultural hegemony can't fade fast enough.

All one has to remember with that reject is she first made these posts saying she had an uncurable disease with less then a year to live. When I pointed out as all the sympathy well wishers jumped in, with less then a year to live the last thing any same person would be doing is waste time on topix! She immediately says, oh I was cured already right after she thanked posters for their sympathy and how words cannot express how difficult end of life diseases like hers are. Whamo she is healed that fast!

Wow! Amazing! Praise Jewsus! Lol!

Ain't it great? It's only going to get more assertive as we grow in number and gain confidence that it's finally safe to speak. Many of us have a few words for you.

Our goal is to get your religion out of our lives, not to rid the world of it. Once you have shrunken small enough to drown in a bathtub, we probably won't think of you again, just like the Druids. Did you realize that they are still around? Not too many posting on Topix, though. Wherever they are, they have no influence over the lives of anybody but other Druids, and only to whatever degree they allow it to influence them.

It's ironic how Christians harp on about "enemies of the state" and being American.

Yet that bedrock of American society, the constitution, stops the lunatic Christians in their tracks.

It's a great time to be alive. From Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.:

"I've been to the mountaintop ... I've looked over. And I've seen the Promised Land. I may not get there with you. But I want you to know tonight, that we, as a people, will get to the Promised Land."

Likewise, we might or might not live to see their god's name scraped off of the money and expelled from the Pledge, but we can see it from this vantage point. Good riddance to the scary chicken god.

Hello, hello, and hellooooo!!!

How are the friendly atheists this evening? Gaining any new converts in China yet? How about Asia? No?

Well, don't give up = you can still practicing singing your Christmas carols. Got your Christmas tree yet? What do you put on the top of it – a smiling picture of Darwin, lol?

You know, it's okay for you to get real spiritual at Christmas......I am allowing you to do that, and so are other atheists, so enjoy!!!! Pause, and say a prayer to your science god – see if he can help you, lmao.

Atheist and communist Russia are great belief dictators, as I'm sure you know. Atheists bring lawsuits to have nativity scenes torn down, then run out Christmas eve and sing carols, lol. Atheists: dictators and hypocrites all at the same time.

LOL – as usual, you guessed wrong. The definition of a scientist is someone who manufactures data to support his discoveries.
