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

Still adding nothing.
Considering you actually think you'd enjoy an eternity of just worshiping some god .... you obviously have no clue.

You think the Crusades and the Inquisition can actually be topped by anything? You are deluded beyond repair.
Crusades were justified in turning back Muslim invasions of Europe.
Justified in the military sense, not in morality.
The barbarism of the 20th century seems to know no match in history, sadly.

There's that deep Christian misanthropic pessimism chiseled by decades of hearing you how useless and depraved man is, and how horrible the world is. Humanism offers a much cheerier perspective. No sin, no perdition, no judgment, no demons, and no damnation - just a love of mankind, a respect for the planet and life in general, a love of justice and of truth, and an optimism for the future and man's incredible potential based on his historical arc.

Americans are among the most unhealthy people in the world. Surrounded by technological affluence, we have fancy heart scans that can give us a nice picture of our clogged arteries. With diabetes reaching epidemic proportions Americans are fatter than they've ever been. Crammed with highly sophisticated scientific equipment, the fourth leading cause of mortality among Americans is infections in our hospitals. More Americans are strung out on psychoactive drugs than any other country in the world. This practice even has a name, it's called the "the medicalization of unhappiness." Seventy five percent of our nations population breathes unhealthy amounts of air pollution...BUT...our cars are faster, our houses are bigger, and our menus a smorgasbord of cheap unnutritional food designed to titillate even the most fickle of palates.
Bummer.

The humanist is right.

When Christians are the majority, we have laws that prevent same sex marriages, for example. Both of those are changing.

Did Mr. Haggard repent? I don't know, and neither do you that's between him and God. If he did repent, he's been forgiven. If he did not, he will be held accountable.
There's that cheap Christian forgiveness on demand.

And no, Mr. Haggard's hypocritical homophobia is not forgiven. I don't forgive it, and I doubt too many other skeptics do, either. I hold the good reverend accountable whether he mutters demands at his ceiling fan or not.

And not for snorting illicit powders off of the nut-sack of his man-whore in a motel, but for being a hateful and hypocritical homophobe like his god, and teaching others to be as well.

Prominent scientist discovers that God indeed exists.

"One of Britain's most prominent atheists has decided that God might exist after all."

Even in the dementia that characterized Mr. Flew's alleged eleventh hour conversion, he still rejected "God" - your god.

What Flew allegedly did in his dotage was still an extreme repudiation of faith and Christianity. It is claimed that in his dotage, he became a deist.

Flew was still evidence based until the end, even when senile. His waning intellect concluded that the universe implied a creator after all.

And this is touted as a great victory by the theists even though Flew continued to reject all mythologies, religions, and dogmas, including Christianity and Jehovah-Jesus, who he considered a mythological character like the Kraken.

He rejected magical thinking, prayer and miracles.

He rejected virgin births and resurrections.

He rejected divine revelation and holy books.

He rejected heaven, hell, angels, and demons.

He rejected sin, grace, the soul, salvation, and damnation.

In fact, Flew rejected everything held sacred and self-evident to a Christian.

And to Christians, he is in hell.

I have no argument with deists. They make good citizens and good neighbors. For example, they don't damage America with antiscientific propaganda, nor scapegoat atheists or gays.

But there is no evidence against Genesis and Exodus. And that's all the proof you need. LOL
According to the Bible, Moses went up Mount Sinai a few times.

While he was up there, down below at the foot of the mountain were approximately 3 million Jews, 600,000 goats and sheep, 300,000 cattle and about 10,000 wagons.

I guess you know that not a single campsite, midden or sign of occupation has been found in Sinai.

Why do you think that is?

Perhaps it's because this is just a myth?

Bradley Monton, science philospher and atheist, carefully argues that intelligent design deserves serious consideration as a scientific theory.
Intelligent design deserves no consideration as a scientific theory. It's not even a scientific hypothesis. It's just a claim.

ID has already gotten serious consideration, at the Kitzmiller v. Dover trial for one, where it was found to be unscientific and unsupported by evidence. Nobody's ever defined irreducible complexity in a way in which it can be positively identified when present, which is what makes the claim for it unscientific. It's as vague a concept as holy, blessed, sacred, and soul.

"But you are my witnesses, O Israel!" says the LORD. "You are my servant. You have been chosen to know me, believe in me, and understand that I alone am God. There is no other God--there never has been, and there never will be.
Going by your name, I thought you'd use the King James Version:

Ye are my witnesses, saith the Lord, and my servant whom I have chosen: that ye may know and believe me, and understand that I am he: before me there was no God formed, neither shall there be after me.

Here we can clearly see your god referring to a time before and after him.

Science tells us with great superiority that we humans, close relatives of the chimpanzee, are the very pinnacle of creation, not only the most intelligent creatures on earth but the whole universe.

We live on a tiny speck in the corner of an infinitely old universe surrounded by an infinite number of galaxies, stars, and planets, and our only reason for being there is to die. Such presumptive baloney - such conceit! I can't believe educated people can swallow this mythical crap and call themselves intelligent let alone think they have a reason to criticize Christians for their beliefs!

No scientist has stated we are the most intelligent creature in the universe. Seriously, you're making yourself look silly...
