You calling me a liar when you don't even know God consciousness exists besides not knowing the difference between the Torah/Tanakh scriptures of Jewish Yahweh and the Quran scriptures of Muslim Allah? Boy, that is dumb to parading your ignorance of religions you attack. As well as libelous calling people liars you post against without any proof to offer, without any knowledge of my specific beliefs that I can tell since I haven't posted them, just your emotional outburst as a born-again atheist who traded one false belief system and fanaticism for it for another if you're the one coming to atheism from Pauline Christian disillusionment.

There you go again, lying through your teeth, when you have no evidence and are so bitter about having no evidence, that you come to atheism forum to tell us all about it.

When you're brave enough to the prove the god you're lying about, your opinions will matter more.

Its not libelous to call you a liar when you have no evidence for god that could stand up in any court of law.

Atheism is, in a broad sense, the rejection of belief in the existence of deities.[1][2] In a narrower sense, atheism is specifically the position that there are no deities.[3][4][5] Most inclusively, atheism is simply the absence of belief that any deities exist.[4][5][6][7] Atheism is contrasted with theism,[8][9] which in its most general form is the belief that at least one deity exists.[9][10]

The term atheism originated from the Greek ἄθ&#949 ;ος (atheos), meaning "without god(s)", used as a pejorative term applied to those thought to reject the gods worshipped by the larger society. With the spread of freethought, skeptical inquiry, and subsequent increase in criticism of religion, application of the term narrowed in scope. The first individuals to identify themselves using the word "atheist" lived in the 18th century.[11]

Arguments for atheism range from the philosophical to social and historical approaches. Rationales for not believing in any supernatural deity include the lack of empirical evidence,[12][13] the problem of evil, the argument from inconsistent revelations, rejection of concepts which cannot be falsified, and the argument from nonbelief.[12][14] Although some atheists have adopted secular philosophies,[15][16] there is no one ideology or set of behaviors to which all atheists adhere.[17] Many atheists hold that atheism is a more parsimonious worldview than theism, and therefore the burden of proof lies not on the atheist to disprove the existence of God, but on the theist to provide a rationale for theism[18]

Atheism is accepted within some religious and spiritual belief systems, including Hinduism, Jainism, Buddhism, Raelism, Neopagan movements[19] such as Wicca,[20] and nontheistic religions. Jainism and some forms of Buddhism do not advocate belief in gods,[21] whereas Hinduism holds atheism to be valid, but some schools view the path of an atheist to be difficult to follow in matters of spirituality.[22]

Since conceptions of atheism vary, determining how many atheists exist in the world today is difficult.[23] According to one estimate, atheists make up about 2.3% of the world's population, while a further 11.9% are nonreligious.[24] According to a 2012 global poll conducted by WIN/GIA, 13% of the participants say they are atheists.[25] According to another study, rates of self-reported atheism are among the highest in Western nations, again to varying degrees: United States (4%), Italy (7%), Spain (11%), Great Britain (17%), Germany (20%), and France (32%).[26]

Thanks for all the spam Aberto, but a link would have sufficed,(and is still required).

If you think only 11% of Brits are non-believers you are grossly mistaken...

I've lived here all of my life. Even the Christians don't seriously believe a god sent a prophet to Earth. They aren't stupid. They see Christianity as a tradition and the Bible as alegorical.(Heaven knows how or why they do. Christianity is a load of old rubbish, in my view).

Yeaa, yeah, yeah, we know, the one you chose is the real one. That is what they all say.

They all began at the same place, and vary a bit in detail. Exactly like the 50,0000 or so different so called Christain religions do.

All Arab, all myth, Yahweh/Allah and Jehovah, one and the same.

It all boils down to a massively bloated ego.

They cannot stand the idea that their ego is not somehow, magically, "special" to the universe itself.

So they manufacture these "gods" which magically transform them, into a Cosmic Being of Greater Significance.

So much so, that they actually believe the universe was created...

.... specifically, and especially for....

....... them.

LOL!

Agreed: the truth is always preferable to a comfortable lie.
For once you start down the road of lies? Where do you stop? At what point, do you say "enough lies"?
The truth, on the other hand, does not require faith-- evidence does not require faith.
Reality just is-- even if nobody believes it.
So once you stop all the lies, and strip away all the deceit?
Whatever is left over, must be reality.
Sherlock Holmes said the exact same thing, "Whatever remains, however improbable, must be the truth."

It's sad when people wish to run away from reality and absorb themselves in lies. It's a sad sight when half the people of the world choose to do that willingly. Fortunately, more of us are starting to realize the truth and open our eyes.

<quoted text>My religion? That would be none? If you are the only person in 7 billion, without a new testament, you could just go buy one. Or you could just look in your Torah, you will find the same thing, edited somewhat differently, but that holds true of all the holy books. Same shit, different spin.
rabbee: religiously against G-D, is your religion. there is no such thing, as a non-religious creature of habits. when your habits are involving some religion religiously.

i have even rejected your new testament, so why would i want any one else's? and my Authentic Torah Scroll, is not edited. denying being here in The-Story, does not really get you out of being here in IT again. not being here in TheTorah from G-D, is just an illusion from the subtle talking critters again.

G-D did not quit giving TheTorah, just because they wrote their new testament tanach. G-D is going to give TheTorah here in IT, for the full six days. then HaMoaheeach, shall give The-Final day here in TheTorah. just like the last time.

then G-D shall give it all over again, beginning with Noach, His Family and whosoever the talking 144,000 talking critters are again. with or without all of you, and your grandmother of all just again.
