Atheists stay on the defensive by arguing against other posts instead of explaining their own beliefs in original posts. Watch them get hostile toward this post.

The reason is because I would only expect to see more of the same brainless posts and atheistic hatred I've seen far too many times already and the same rhetoric atheists always go through. More pink unicorns, more insults against God and the Christian belief. Don't need the aggravation, and don't need to waste any more time with any of them than I've already wasted. Feel free to chop up my post into little pieces, and break it all down, or dismiss me with a single sentence......lol.....whatever you want to do, but realize that I will not be back to check up on you, sweetie cakes, so the only good that will do is to serve for you all to gratify each other. And you know what, I hope it does that for you. The only joy you get from this life is what you experience at the moment, since death will bring you only one of two things:(1) nothing at all but worms and decay, if you are right, or (2) hell if you're wrong. Your belief is a lose/lose situation. Take care of your health, eat right, and enjoy the limited years on the planet that you have while you can. Okey Dokey?[OKEY DOKEY]
Thank you, that's very condescending of you.

Thanks for stopping by, I would say that you may not have read many posts then.

It is difficult to explain one's beliefs when one has none. Learn what atheist means.

Not at all hostile. Atheism is simply a lack of belief in a god(s). That's it. Pretty simple isn't it? Most people already know that though, so there isn't much of a need to explain it too often.

Why do some christians believe that their right to believe should somehow be given preference over nonbelievers' right to not buy the bull?

The final argument of a defeated Christian. You really have nothing else, do you? You have no carrot, as almost nobody is attracted to the idea of praising some black hole of ego and need for eternity, so you are left with your stick. Boo!

We are trying to make a better world not just for our grandchildren, but yours as well. You don't care about anything but your soul, which doesn't even exist.

You and your bible are sickening. We need fewer churches and people like you in our neighborhoods.

Get used to it. Our time has come, and we have a voice at last. There is so much to say about your church.

As Emo Philips told his German brother-in-law, who was lamenting about how hard it was to find a good bagel in Berlin, "who's fault is that?"

And what did you just do here, Jesus Boy?

Did you think you go so a drive-by, and then avoid criticism by adding that comment?

How about this: We promise not to burn you at the stake or put you in the iron maiden for your beliefs. That's more than your church ever did for us.

These threads are providing a useful reality check for the Christians. They're used to being able to belch their threats of hellfire unopposed.

After so many centuries of patting themselves on the back for being so good, they are amazed not only to hear back talk, but to discover the degree of contempt and hostility so many non-Christians feel for their church.

Like the insubstantial Ruby, they tuck tail and run.

Told you they would get hostile, and they proved me right. So funny, so predictable, so universally angry. Could have pretty much guessed what they would all say. Funny. Love to watch them showing their colors - gives them their adrenalin rush. Unimpressive as usual.

Atheists never run, run, run, except when they poo poo and when they speak. It's hard to tell the difference since either of their holes look the same :)

So no proof of god then. I guess childish insults is all you guys really have had for centuries. What can we expect from immature liars afraid of death - invent a fantasy, become religious...

It makes sense that Christians would see it like that, and further, confuse those areas.

Just look at the child molestation problems that are prevalent in Christian institutions where the clergy and members are raping young children primarily in, how did you put it?
