You lead first!! Practice what your preach.
WHERE have I LIED on a perpetual basis as you. If I'm wrong, I have the spheres to admit I'm wrong, unlike someone not a million miles away. MUG! Why don't you concede defeat? The consensus is that you're a born looser. Or is that hatched? If you believe I am being rude, recall who it was that "Cast the first stone."

That's the only eternal life you'll possess....it's not a badthing either.
E=MC squared PROVES mass to be a form of energy.

No such thing, next fallacy please.
You supplied it.

If you know what you claim to know, you have to be omniscient, as physical knowledge cannot provide it.

Since mortals are not omniscient, you have to be a god.

Since you are a god, gods exist.

Or else you're just lying...

You can't call atheist's liars because they don't believe in god.

If god was accepted as a scientific fact, then yes you can call them liars, but it isn't, so they aren't.

I think the scientists have a word for you guys too...

Nope, it proves that the two are related. Also, computer annotation is e=MC^2

Check out your dancing, that's some good moves, for a third grade student.

You danced around the topic, then twisted and contorted the meanings of the words. Yep, just like a break dancer.

Nope.
I cannot hate that which is not real-- you may as well try to accuse me of hating Harry Potter.
Silly person.
I do despise what the IDEA of god does to people such as yourself-- it clearly damages people's minds.
Yours especially.
Pity, you.
The more intellectuel you are, the less influentiell you are for a religion.

Yes, I believe it needs challenging and thank you for it. Anyone who would make a statement so obviously rediculous would put one in a quandry as how to answer.
I have Italian heritage, I read it as a joke at first, then looked at the poster's name.....The man(?) himself is ignorant and rude. I don't think responding nicely or not to him will make any difference. If you disagree, he'll act like a jerk anyway.
Just depends on your personal preference and how much patience you've got. I prefer to be nice but I've not got an abundance of patience......sooooo ;0)

Belief in God declines in more developed countries and is concentrated in Europe in countries such as Sweden (64% nonbelievers), Denmark (48%), France (44%) and Germany (42%).
In contrast, the incidence of atheism in most sub-Saharan countries is below 1%. In United Kingdom "No Religion" has overtaken "Christians" in a 2007 poll.
Interestingly enough in Mexico separation of church and state is guaranteed by Article 130 of the Mexican Constitution, which also designates religious leaders as ineligible for public office, while the majority of the population identifies as Roman Catholic (89%); if only the USA can learn from this!
The less uneducated people are the more they are for the catches of religious myths!
