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.

Yep. They are all, at the bottom of the analysis-chain, the same.

It's a money-making con of the best variety: ALL the major props are 100% imaginary!

The initial investment can literally be $0.

You can't get a better con than that.

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.
Angry? Because atheists are being treated as 2nd-class people by True Believers™.

Because True Believers™ get a free ride on the backs of ALL tax-payers with their tax-free churches

Because True Believers™ keep passing hate-laws based on their ugly cults, such as anti-abortion, anti-gay, pro-religious BS.

Because True Believers™ keep electing IDIOTS to Washington, based on the religious LIES the idiots tell; and then those same IDIOTS turn around and cater to the top 1% ONLY.

Because True Believers™ keep trying to get their RELIGION (creationism, etc) taught in public schools, polluting the minds of the innocent.

There's more, but that's a pretty good summary.

LOL. Are you trying to insult me with the word cult?
cult\ˈkəlt\
noun
Usage: often attributive
1 : formal religious veneration : worship
It IS an insult-- too bad you don't have the wits to comprehend it.

But ALL religion is a cult, so I can see how you'd be confused.

I see you worship your favorite god, Satan.

You also give this "satan" character far more power than your god has: your satan can usurp free will at a whim...

I swear man if I didn't have the strong secular morals that I have, with my bible and religious knowledge I could easily start up a church or even a new religion and make a fortune scamming rubes into thinking I had the path to heaven.

Yes all religions are cults. Cult and Religion are interchangeable words.

Not like atheist and agnostic that are NOT interchangeable.

"

ATHEISM IS A RELIGION as deemed by the courts.

The Seventh Judicial Circuit of the Court of Appeals of the United States held that ATHEISM IS A RELIGION. Therefore, it cannot be promoted by a public school. Currently, public schools are often unwittingly promoting atheism through a dogmatic and uncritical teaching of materialistic theories of origins."

Atheism = Cult

Correct.

Athiesm is complete LACK OF BELIEF in gods.

Agnosticism is the declaration that you cannot KNOW about gods.

The two are complimentary.

Neither is a religion-- which requires you to LIE (faith).

Like I said my secular humanist morals won't allow me to do as such. It takes really scummy people to do that and support people like that. Sorry but William Lane Craig has hurt way more people in a week than Larry Flint has hurt his entire life.

Yep.

I have to face the morning mirror-- thus I cannot permit myself to be a thief-- which is what a con-game is: stealing, by way of lies.

A soul.
Actually, that wispy little miasma thingy, you lot called a soul
seems to have caused such unbelievable anxiety among most religion's sheeple, that it is just plain undesirable.
Why would we want that mediocre bit of nothingness that is so coveted by the underworld, that the person stuck with it, must be on constant guard against both his own god, and his own god's evil other half? One of whom will simply take and own it, the other may casually harden the heart of the soul carrier, so that any and all attempts to guard one's soul, may be over ruled by the same god who foisted it on you(but he will pass the buck and blame your grand pappy). Then there is that grand pappy thing, of the hideously repellant and unescapable "unto the tenth generation" rule about the bastard's family whose souls will all burn in hell, for sins committed by the long dead and unknown to the soul possessor's, ancestors.

Not only do we reject the entire concept as ludicrous, but if the damned things were real, you couldn't pack one in a barrel of hundred dollar bills and trick us into taking it.
