But.

You True Believers™? You lie pretty much 100% of the time.

It's what you do.
What? An atheist making false claims?
Go Figure!

<quoted text>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.

Note the plural, wetpants.

"Atheists believe there are no gods."

Bingo!!

A positive belief!!
As in Religion!

A positive assertion in a belief put the burden of proof on "you" that there is no gods!

This is a perfect example of an Atheist that DOES believe there is no God.

Not an atheist that has an absence of all believe.

Merriam-Webster
athe·ist\ˈā-thē-ist\
noun
: one who believes that there is no deity

Point proven!

To easy.

<quoted text>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."

Church, without God

“Stan Bradley likes Bible stories, admires Martin Luther and uses expressions such as 'heavens, no.'

The Lithopolis man is president of a local congregation and rarely misses a Sunday service. Occasionally, he goes to his wife's church instead.

For these and other reasons, Bradley considers himself religious.”

He is also an atheist.

continued:

“Like Bradley, some atheists participate in organized religion for its social and psychological benefits.”

continued:

“Churches are great places to find friends, support and youth education, so nonbelievers and believers alike join congregations to fill those needs, he said.

He has spoken to elderly and sick people who can no longer go to church and they say they most miss the feeling of community.

Recent research from Harvard University and the University of Wisconsin backs him up. It found that religious people tend to be happier than nonreligious people, not because of belief but because of the friendships found at church.”

“religious people tend to be happier than nonreligious people”[I have said this all along, and my posts are still on the board to confirm it. Now you hear it straight from the atheist, lol.]

Nice try, but wouldn't it just be easier to admit that according to your religion you committed a whopper of a sin?

YOU get to keep people out of heaven?

Word games are the best you can do?

I guess it's hardly surprising as your ridiculous beliefs put you in such a weak position.

So your Satan-god is the more powerful of the two you worship?

I mean-- according to YOU?

Your Satan is powerful enough to bamboozle very intelligent people -- WITHOUT THEIR KNOWING IT!

But your god?

Cannot manage even ONE real-live appearance to PROVE he is real?

That's lame.

But FUNNY!
