Your reasoning is averse to this your reasoning is faulty.
You don't have any evidence & you don't respect the scientific standards that this evidence should have.

So we must conclude that you are mentally ill liars that make up your own definitions and live in a fantasy world.

Yeah, so you are a salad bar Christain? As you pick and choose as to which bits of this god, please you, consider that what you are not choosing is still your god. The noble brow is still connected to the odorous armpit. A slab of god, sliced from the whole and held aloft as to induce wonderment, only gets you ridicule. The cream that you lick from the plate covers maggots. The whole damned braying ass is your god and your religion, and it smells to high heaven.

Yahweh is Jehovah, Jehovah is Allah, Allah is Yahweh. Mohamed was a pedophile. Jewsus is an imposter, no saviour Immanuael was ever slipped into the books.

Athiesm is simply a request for **proof** that gods are real.

So far?

Nobody-- including you-- has offered any.

So by **default**? Gods are myth.
No, atheism is self delusion pretending to be neutral.

<quoted text>We've been over this before, bob. Has something happened to your memory? Each sect picks and chooses, adds and subtracts Books, each according to their own guidance and interpretations of Devine Will. I've never taken up the serpent, either- does that make me an atheist? The only thing I'd like to do that occurred in the Old Testament is to do as Sampson did and take up the jawbone of an ass and smite the enemies of Christians...for you, it would be like getting hit by your twin brother.
In other words, you are saying that unless we atheist would dig into the swill of those roiling cream covered god maggots, with you, then you happily would bring about our deaths? And you think we are deserving of this brutality?

Yeah, you can keep that, we do not want the first nibble of that grotesque buffet.

Atheism is much older than that...
Men have been trying to hide from God since the dawn of sin.
The dawn of sin? LOL! Sin is self inflicted nonsense .... first one must sign up to follow the rules of a chosen deity, then one must fail to follow those same rules. There are lot's of gods, who have rules that you do not follow, are you sinning against those gods? No, you aren't, not until you sign up. Would you accept being conscripted by Kali, as you try to conscript us, for Jehovah?

There are no differences between the witch doctor and the priest, the spell casters, ministers, clergy and bone chunkers, they are the men to whom power is granted and whose pockets are lined, as they act as liaisons to the gods.~ L J Lilly

Atheism has different interpretations so it is invalid then?
Is your arguement, actually, that all gods do exist?

Atheism is only the lack of theism, nothing more. People can be many things, but the lack of theism is limited to being only that, the "lack of theism". And the atheist is simply not a theist, nothing more.

You will not present the evidence. No one does. No one will.

Somehow, it looks just like it has always looked, no one has any evidence, but everyone of you has the right and only real gods. From the Voodoo priestess, to the Appalachian snake handlers, the Baptist holy rollers, to the Cardinals of the Vatican, and to Charles Manson, all are in possession of the only truth.

There is no claim, at all. We simply wait for any one of you, to prove yours. When it comes to the gods, none are more valid, than any other. They are all the same ........ completely un-proven.

Skeptic, you really think you can get away with calling me a liar when I tell you this former atheist who was as blind to spiritual reality as you went through a three day religious conversion experience in which I was in spiritual communion with God? Do you really believe that theists would make up such experiences and why on earth would we do this? I was an atheist up until my 35 year and really did not even think about God and certainly was not in a community in which Christian God consciousness was something you went around bragging about. You are nothing but a slanderer who is posting libel against theists as your "defense" of atheism. That's chickenshite tactics.
If you atheists cannot mount a rational argument against theism when you resort to name-calling and ad hominen attacks like Skeptics or when you continue to post inane soundbite emotional and therefore meaningless outbursts like our Swedish atheist, we theists can only think the DoJ is spot on the mark with atheists exhibiting the classic denial behavior of all fundamentalist believers.

That's why you atheists have to keep posting everyday like all fundies are prone to do--to go around posting massively on Christian talkboards almost exclusively their fundamentalist belief systems that replace reasoned arguments. Ad hominen attacks replace logic that atheism can never hold being non-objective and thereby unscientific. Only agnosticism is a valid philosophy of science--not atheism.

Take the constant atheist demand for "empirical proof" of God or gods when atheists throw out automatically the way science gets at invisible forces that cannot be measured directly--by studying the effects of such invisible forces on things that can be measured, such as degree of belief in spiritual phenomena. I can offer myself as example of how an atheist can be converted to theism by going through a profound religious experience in which the atheist runs up against spiritual activity his science can in no way account for. Since Spirit is by definition unmaterial, the atheist demand for material "empirical" evidence is a diversion of proper science study of invisible forces, especially ones effecting psychological states of mind. You study the effects of the invisible forces and thereby discover a Pattern that repeats itself through time and generations of human beings. This atheists refuse to do, study the Pattern of religious beliefs through time to see that people never really ever stop having spiritual experiences. It's part and parcel of being a human being as it is a universal attribute of human beings through time and space. And atheists are not immune to conversion to spiritual consciousness but it does take a bigger emotional trauma or psychedelic chemistry usually to stop the atheists' left-brain's domination of consciousness so that spiritual phenomena can be "seen". There are so many scientific reports of spiritual conscious states of mind that for Skeptic to throw out atheist libel of theists as liars it only shows the willingness of atheists to scrap the bottom of the ethical barrel in order to defend a logically indefensible ideology, an ideology that claims the backing of science but ignores the Scientific Method altogether. Atheism is a religiously held belief system. Only Agnosticism is scientifically valid.

The basis of our claim is the complete and utter lack of evidence that supports yours.

Step up and prove atheist philosophy or religion.

Keep posting as you may be a Christian trying to embarrass atheists?
