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.

*You will find it all true, verifiable and consistent. And every last bit of it, you would applaud, if it had been done by any theist, including those worshipping little blue gods, gods with too many arms, and gods who require you to mug people. The magic word that would allow this stupidity from you, is "theist". Well guess what, myself and every living human child who is not yet indoctrinated are atheist!

Now that you've started, have fun, get to know the real me. You are going to like me, in spite of yourself. You only have 13,275 more left to repost, and since it's my birthday week I am going to enjoy the heck out of this.

(Hey EW, it's been a year, since you decided I was on my last legs, a dead woman walking. LOL)
* we can repost this again next year

Because I exist, because he can. Because he wants to cause hurt, and the best way do that is to look for my Achilles heel, so he needs to get to know, who he most enjoys stabbing in the back, and he "WILL" get to know me this way.

All of those posts were done with no consideration of him and his knife. He is going to do what everyone else does, love me or hate me, with no in-between.

I am glad you caught that. Imagine a place that would charge a prayer, a sermon, or even a bowed head as price for a hungry man's meal. And yes, at the Club Mal-theist Soup Kitchen they do have requirements that are far beyond the only one that should be required, and that should be the need of food.

I, as an atheist know, what these Club Mal-theist god-pushers do not seem to know. The hungry will eat and leave, the lonely will eat and stay to talk, the spiritually needy will reach out, for that theological comforting crutch. The religitard flock have need to make every hungry mouth a route by which they may shovel their god manure.

And FYI, I have never been to the Islam, board, forum or threads

For almost my entire life (yes, even in my childhood) I have been active in trying to help those less fortunate, For years I operated a soup kitchen (free of dogma), cooked in another

>>>>>>> >>>>>>>(p rayers mandatory)<<<<< <<<<<<< <<,

which was the reason I started and funded one myself, delivered food, water and clothing in emergency situations (fire and storms). I took in and raised 4 abandoned children along with my own, and I can tell you, this life is beautiful.
The possibilities, the endless chances to reinvent your life, to step outside of your own past, begin anew, are real. Even with disease and terminal illness, we humans can look for the possibility of cures, we can live in the moment, making as much as we can of the too short days left. We can pass on who we are in music, art and in the written word. Nothing is guaranteed, but for one brief bit of life that we have, we can make it a brilliantly beautiful and shining moment

The only belief you have demonstrated so far is a hatred of God.

Educate me? More like hopelessly failing in trying to indoctrinate me and everyone else for that matter. You cannot educate people into 'nothing'.....unless youre a nihilist of some sort.

OK....so whats the answer?

What? In the same way dawkins and co. live off government grants and donations from stooges like you?

You proclaim yourself as being 'not theist' then add you are a 'non-believer' as if these 2 terms were exclusive from each other.
Maybe in your mind they are........
It is absolute folly, to hate a god which is non existent!

And here we see word games in play...
Notice how the poster twists a positive negative claim. The negative claim is poorly worded but that's all that's needed to wrench the discussion away from the positive claim - there is a god.
Is this supposed to be proof that god does exist?
The burden of proof is upon those who claim that god exists.

For all the thousands of gods there was never a proof possible. Why should there be now such a silly thing possible?

What is your religion?

It's what keeps your mind in the dark; shut down and sealed against the light of science and reason.

Just from the level of hate you spew on a constant basis?

You are either Islamic, or one of those Genuine Christians™

And that right there marks you for a bigot-- but we already knew that.

As for ugly cult's rules? You clearly fail to follow 99% of them...

Oh he has been reduced to demanding, name the church I go to!

Who gives a fck? Even if we did guess correctly the chump's church out of the 64,000 different Christian religions he would say we were wrong.

He is a garden variety christhole.

Why are these Athiests so angry?

I believe in God, you don't.

Whats the big deal?

Its upto you what you want to believe, upto me what I want to believe.

And before anyone goes off on one, I'm a secularist also, and I don't go to church etc because I think organised religion is wrong, and in most cases is a money racket.
