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

So you settle for a “mild happiness”- lol.
Maybe one day you will give up the hopelessness of atheism and discover that deeper happiness which could bring meaning to your life.
This is a discussion forum. It hardly qualifies as one of the deeper happinesses of life. But it is a nice diversion and I do learn things here.

Do atheists realize that when they falsely attribute quotes to Thomas Jefferson that they seriously damage their own cause?
It makes the public realize they are just “jokes”.
Thank God the atheists know how to show themselves in the worst possible light to the whole world, lol.
Keep up the good work, atheists - we love it.

You may want to have a word with your buddy, KJV.

He reckons the founding fathers of America were atheists.

Does it pain you so much that science is far from perfect?

So why do you say that it is always being changed?

A great loss. But I'm confident that his words and ideals will live on. He has gained immortality by seeing the greatness and potential of the human race.

I'm confident that one day humanity will mature to those ideals.

Bats are birds according to your bible. If that's perfect to you, you have very poor standards.

Right, atheism and this forum don't bring the deeper happiness you're trying to find.

But I'm glad you're learning – at least you're making a start.

I was happy to teach you. Thanks.

Happy New Year!

What about corrupt scientists who steal laboratory results and share confidential findings with foreign countries?

Traitors? Espionage? Selling us out?

Should we just spank their hands?

No, I'm afraid they will receive far more recognition than that, lol. The government expects this should be taken very seriously. Jianyu Huang was arrested for doing just such a thing.

LOL – not only a corrupt scientist, but a petty thief too; Mr. Huang reportedly stole laptops and other computer equipment as well.

Let's look at some more of the blatant lies atheists tell.

For one thing, they falsely declare that religion is evil. One example filled with such lies is Richard Dawkin's book,“The God Delusion”.

Even though modern science developed in the Christian west, atheists allege Chritianity is the enemy of science. That's false, also. The first scientists were Christians: Kepler, Galileo, Newton, Copernicus, Pascal, Pasteur, Farady, and Mendel – and others - contributed enormously to science.

Atheists also try to tell you that the Church persecuted scientists. The included link explains the falsity of that lie. The account of Galileo is very enlightening. Atheists need to read it and learn from it.

Actually, it was atheist political regimes who persecuted scientists, which is also explained in the link.

If only scientists knew what the Bible knew 2000 years ago. Yet, in all the time science has been researching our origins, they still provide us with the wrong answers.

And that's where the lies are – in science.

It was in the news where a Christian group defended an 89 year old atheist's right to display a sign in his window which claimed religion was a “fairy tale”.

Would atheists defend Christians if Christians displayed signs saying science was based on fraud and fairy tales?

If Shirley had worn an ordinary secular necklace, would these groups have been concerned about the health and safety to patients?

... or were they just concerned about the cross?

Hmmmm..........

Why are they afraid of the cross if it's not real?

Do you support the United States Constitution and freedom of speech?

Then don't go to Britain, because if you own a business there, you cannot display Bible verses on your television screen.

The Huffington post link included explains.

When I saw this, I immediately thought of our own little Khatru and how he / she (?) is so favorable to the U.S. Constitution, and wants to protect it.

Khatru – hi, are you there? Do you enjoy free speech in Britain?

Oh, well I guess so – it's probably ok as long as only atheists have it, lol.

Apologetics. "It didn't mean that, it was just interpreted wrong."

Try to come up with something that's actually a logical reason for the error ... oh wait, it would still be an error, duh.
