It seems that there is a problem with religious people - when you say 'no thanks' they continue trying to persuade you with some other religious nonsense.

There must be something wrong with these people who can't take a simple no' for an answer, and have to troll the atheism forum with their tired old religious propoganda.

God does not want anyone to spend eternity in a terrible place of judgment. That is why we keep telling unbelievers about the saving grace of Jesus Christ.

It is not we cannot accept "no", it's because we want them to make it to Heaven!

Okay, you never seen the past, and just because it sounds crazy for a God to exist, that means he doesn't exist. You're really intelligent(sarcasm)

If you want to convince us, bring actual evidence. And the evidence will have to be extraordinary, and conclusive with EVERYONE! Not just your sect of Christianity. I am talking people of Muslim, Jewish, Budhist, Raelian, heck, all other faiths. Atheists would need to agree upon the evidence as well. Again, EVERYONE WORLD WIDE needs to agree. Until then, keep it to yourself, please.

Thanks

Unsubstantiated threats only faze the gullible. You have absolutely no evidence of this place. It's part of your mythology utilizing the old Carrot and Stick approach that is used by authoritarians to keep the sheeple in line. It's a situation that allows theists to get away with any kind of malicious behavior. You can do wrong, ask for forgiveness, then get you Free Get Out Of Hell Card.

Simple: the self-deception is only sustainable when everyone buys into it. As soon as there are people questioning the myth and saying the emperor has no clothes, the whole belief system is in danger of collapsing. If "faith" is the foundation of belief, instead of evidence, it depends on everyone mirroring the same faith. When believers look around and don't see their beliefs in your mirror, they panic, in the original sense of the word.

There is a Christian legend about Pan. In some versions it takes place at the birth of Christ, in others it occurs during his crucifixion, but all involve travellers, usually sailors on the Mediterranean Sea. As they approach the coast, the wind suddenly drops, the air thickens, the vessel is becalmed, and an odd stillness descends. All day the sailors wait, and then, toward evening, a great thundering voice rings out: "The Great God Pan is dead!" Suddenly, from all the hills and streams, from the little hidden valleys, from temples and sacred groves, from mountain pastures and ferny cliffs, there rises a cry of lament, a vast outpouring of wailing and weeping and shrieking that echoes across the hills and valleys and spreads all across the land. Pan is dead.

After this event, the Greek oracles no longer prophesy accurately. The old gods of the classical world, the genies of all the old sacred sites, the nymphs of the wild places, the fauns and satyrs and centaurs, and all wild things fall silent. The Lord of the Wood is dead, and the new king's domain is not earth but heaven. The old order dies with Pan, giving way to a heaven-inspired mystic religion spread by the followers of Christ.

With the rise of science, the religious see their own demise on the horizon. Atheism is the next voice proclaiming the death of a god.

Yes, it always comes down to that. In the absence of any positive proof of the truth of your beliefs, theists always fall back on the fear card as the only card they can reliably play.

The koran says all non-muslims will go to hell. We don't fear your threat for exactly the same reason the koranic threat doesn't phase you.

I wonder how you are so sure that God doesn't exist.

Ooh, there's no evidence so God doesn't exist. Isn't it suspicious that so many people believe in the Bible.
It's highly unlikely that there's 2billion idiots on the planet.

That probably means something did happen in the past.
I'm not saying this to prove anything, I'm saying it that you can't always take everything for granted.

You can't accept no, because you suffer from a medical problem. Its got nothing to do with religious conviction - you're a psycho that can't stop judging others.

We're sure because evolution is a scientific fact and you have no evidence for god.

On top of this is evidence that you're a bunch of liars who are openly dishonest.

There is no god and pretending that their is, or imagining that there is, is not going to change the facts.

not accepting facts is symptom of psychological illness.

Waiting,

Just as billions of people have waited for 4000 years

And still waiting

Honey, if anyone had actually presented any evidence do you really think this division between god and not god would still exist?

And still waiting

Why do you care about their icons? To me, the more the negative icons, the more I know I'm onto something.
