Atheism
Belief that there is no Deity or Deities.
Hence - Atheism = Religion
Belief that deities don't exist is not religion, wetpants.

It's a disbelief.

And you know what?

It's stronger than your belief.

The article you posted not only explained it all with the theory of evolution, but it depends on the theory of evolution for all of it's information. Therefore, if you stand by that article, you stand by evolution.

From: The Columbus Dispatch:

Church, without God

“Stan Bradley likes Bible stories, admires Martin Luther and uses expressions such as 'heavens, no.'

The Lithopolis man is president of a local congregation and rarely misses a Sunday service. Occasionally, he goes to his wife's church instead.

For these and other reasons, Bradley considers himself religious.”

He is also an atheist.

continued:

“Like Bradley, some atheists participate in organized religion for its social and psychological benefits.”

continued:

“Churches are great places to find friends, support and youth education, so nonbelievers and believers alike join congregations to fill those needs, he said.

He has spoken to elderly and sick people who can no longer go to church and they say they most miss the feeling of community.

Recent research from Harvard University and the University of Wisconsin backs him up. It found that religious people tend to be happier than nonreligious people, not because of belief but because of the friendships found at church.”

“religious people tend to be happier than nonreligious people”[I have said this all along, and my posts are still on the board to confirm it. Now you hear it straight from the atheist, lol.]

He even thinks that Pi = 3
"Now the Hebrews were not an especially technological society; when Solomon built his Temple he had to hire Phoenecian artisans for the really technical work. So the author of this passage may not have known the exact value of pi, or thought his readers might not be aware that specifying the diameter of a circle automatically specifies its circumference. In any case, the essential point was the impressive size of the cauldron, and its dimensions were only approximate, because the ratio of the circumference to the diameter is stated to be EXACTLY 3! rather than the real value of pi which is 3.14159...."

What how could this be?

The bible said to build it ratio of the circumference to the diameter to 3 and son of a gun it is 3 and not Pi.

Hmmm maybe God didn't want to use Pi?

I do?

Or maybe I slap you or them with their own science claim. That goes against you or the others idiots claiming you're wrong.
I don't have say a thing. You atheist can't even get it straight.

See KK I don't have join your religion to quote it.

No its true, God does not answer prayer. Why should he? After all. All Christians are doing by praying is saying "God, you are wrong. DOnt do what you are doing. Do what I want instead." Cant you see how blasphemous that is? Think about it.
Your post is false, doesn't match Bible teaching. Subject closed, lol.

That describes Christians perfectly. They believe stuff without evidence, and ignore evidence which contradicts their beliefs.
Where we differ is the free thinkers here are critical of supernatural claims, and question bizarre claims and magical thinking. That is how to think rationally.
Don't flatter yourself. You're not free thinkers, you all come from the same mold, lol.

Unfortunately for you, the evidence for Evolution is something you can only dream about.
You can deny evolution if you like but then you can also say the moon is made of cheese.
I don't need your okay to say anything, lol. Darwin brought us fraudulent science and Khatru religiously accepts it.

I can't help but notice your failure to cite the scripture that describes the earth as a sphere. Perhaps that's because there isn't one and you're lying for the baby Jesus again.
Given the Bible's ratio for Pi, this is hardly surprising. Your god has some pretty funny ideas about what a sphere is.
You're so intelligent, but you don't know how to find a scripture? It's elementary, lmao. I've included a link for you.

You need to read your Bible, and you would know what it says. You've just shown your ignorance, AGAIN – lol.

http://debunkingatheists.blogspot.com/2008/08...

In your next post you wrote:“you just keep on failing to refute us.”- No, I don't “fail” to refute you, lmao. Many of your posts and others I simply don't read, and I consistently refuse to waste my time on more than 3 or 4 of atheists' gibberish posts.

It wouldn't matter what anyone said who is on the opposite side of you, you wouldn't accept it if they said black was black and white was white, so why should I bother? Do I care what you think? No.

I didn't ask you to respond to my posts, nor do I care if you do or not. Ignore them if you wish. Read them if you wish – do whatever turns you on, lol.

You post opinions. I don't know you or respect you, so your opinions carry no weight with me. Further, I don't really care what you do, what you say, or whether you like it or not. Participating in the forum assigns no obligation to me to address anything. So deal with it - my present policy will continue, lol.
