My blog posts on religion have attracted a lot of controversy. Religious people are annoyed by my claim that belief in God will go the way of horse transportation, and for much the same reason, specifically an improved standard of living.

Wrong assumption.
If he doesn't know nothing then he knows something. There is nothing there what so ever to make the claim that he knows everything.
An atheist making false claims, Go Figure!
You guys pollute cities with your churches based on false claims. That's how silly religion really is.

Theist: "hey we built a church for god"
Atheist" "has anyone in history ever proven that god is real?"
Theist: "no, but maybe if we build more churches..."
Atheist: "You're a f*cking idiot, put that shovel down for f*cks sake."

That is what we have been telling you dipsh!t, there is no such thing. It is only an absence (meaning there is not one there) of a theism.

You believe the God of Abraham is bad, you believe his faithful to be bad.
Keep reading on you chip mouthed slag for further explanation.....
<quoted text>
You have chosen to believe that God is bad, now rub your 2 brain cells together....you have made a judgment and hold that judgment to be true or in other words you have a belief.
If one is a theist then it is correct to say that person holds a belief in the existence of God, as to the level of belief or devotion to God well that can only be known truthfully by that person and God.
But for the most part a theist will hold that God is good or God is above good and evil because he is perfect and balanced.
You on the other hand proclaim God to be evil, you proclaim him, his followers and everything to do with him (and that actually includes yourself) to be evil or bad.
You make a definite statement in calling him bad, you proclaim him bad (MAL) and yet accept his existence (THEIST).
In addition you are recognised as being a bad (MAL) acceptor of God (THEIST).
.
You chip mouthed maltheist slag
Mal-theist = you, you silly person. Atheist is not a theist.

So you are making my decisions for me are you?
Well factor this in, your choices do not fit me at all, they are far too small and far too constraining, so they would have long ago been tossed in favor of decisions which reflect the genuine human that I am.

My beliefs concerning your silly myth god are as follows, firstly, there is and never was a god, for you to follow or for me to believe is bad. Secondly, "he" this non existent thing has no faithful, but there are people who play at acting as if some bits and pieces of that particular theism, fits themselves. Yet if any one of them were to be held to the theism in it's entirety, they would be the first to cut and run. The Christain will never be held to the Christain dogma. That dogma is for using as scare tactics against people who are not playing at Christainity.

I did not proclaim a myth to be evil, nor did I proclaim it as bad. I do think that the pretend followers of the silly myth quite often are disgustingly and inhumanly bad. Evil is a word I have not used, other than in this sentence.

And all of this is what you proclaim as my words and thoughts, do you think your silly myth god can't tell the difference? LOL!

You called me maltheist, which I more than happily point out means "bad theist". Your dispicable atitude towards me, stems from the fact that I am openly atheist, and now (after I show the word to have the opposite meaning)you try and claim me as being who you are, a very bad theist.

Sorry loser, you ate the shit, you digest it. You are a maltheist(bad theist).

As science is silent on atheism the frustration leads to name calling.
"...an absence.." of logic

Then tell me why there is an atheism board on Topix?
If you believe in 'nothing' why have a board to discuss it?
How do you have an intellectual and rational discussion about nothing or non existence?
Is Club Maltheist big fans of the Seinfeld show which is about 'nothing'?
All you Topix atheists of Club Maltheist do is whine about God, if you did not then you would have nothing to post about.
You declare yourself to be an atheist or 'without God', that is your choice but you recognise something that you want no association with.
You could call yourself 'non-theist'(or non-deist) which Buddhists and Jains are...but you hate them too.
You declare yourself atheist in the same manner as someone who declares themselves divorced....because you hold a obsessive resentment of the family you were once part of.

Oops. Almost spiraled off into godbot fantasy land. But really ... even the smartest, most educated, most scientist sounding people on here dance around and won't just come out and say there's ZERO chance for a God of some kind. They'll launch into a probability and statistics lesson to an audience, most of whom, make their decisions with a coin toss. From the seeds of these miniscule philosophical improbabilities ENORMOUS AND TERRIFYING RELIGIONS BLOSSOM!!!
Science has explored the electromagnetic spectrum from DC to light, dug and bounced sound waves off layers deep underground, counted photons from the edge of the Universe and THERE AIN'T NO HEAVEN AND THERE AIN'T NO HELL. There ... I've said it. This dumb-ass radio technician from Texas has come on out and said it. Prove me wrong. Spare me the tales of how Aunt Bessy May's nose wart fell off after a night of intense prayer or how a 'voice' led you to your dead Grandpa's long lost stash of silver dollars. The evidence for my assertion is all around you. It's in the faces of the starving and the neglected and the frightened. It's in the BILLIONS of unanswered prayers that get muttered in quiet desperation every minute of every day. Your God is an evil basterd and we're trying to club it to death with words" ~ R H Hill
That is unfair against a god who is not existing at all!

Atheists will claim there are no gods.
You will claim there is one god. You then go on to claim that a snake and donkey talked. You also claim that you're in telepathic contact with a 2000 year-old zombie that's watching us from some other dimension.
Not happy with all this you make further claims that the universe is only 6000 years old and was created by magic.
Still on the magic thing, you then claim that every single species of flora and fauna was poofed into existence by more magic.
Then you claim that the Grand Canyon is so huge that nothing other than a worldwide catastrophic flood could have created it.
There are many more comical claims you make. Including how geology, cosmology, genetics, biology, anthropology, astronomy, botany and numerous other sciences have all got it wrong; while a book selectively compiled from texts doctored and written by catholics got it right.
Oh yes, the catholics! They need even two popes, is that really so important?
