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.

He is allowing freedom of choice. It's the wicked atheists and their Satan that are doing the horrific cruel acts. You would be extra mad if God took your freedom to be wicked away from you. God is not just sitting back and allowing it, He is saddened by the choices you and your atheists are making.
Sounds like you want to be treated like a robot, with no choice.
The problem is not that God does not love you,; YOUR problem is that you don't love Him.
There's no such thing as god and fee is nothing you can do about it.

Atheists will not make your hallucinations come true. Atheists prove that your all powerful god is a lie.

Why does your god need you to come to the atheist forum if he is allowed ful?

But & obvious questions that all theists run away from because their egos are large and arrogant.

It does solve the question. You just want to over-complicate things.
You would rather lie, than make the effort to understand a complicated truth.

Tells is all we need to know about your so called religious morals...

Theists are liars and they choose to be immoral and take no responsibility for the stupidity behind their beliefs.

It's funny how Christianity keeps you so angry, not allowing you to be happy as an atheist.
I've NEVER seen a confident, sweet, nice, pleasant atheist.
When I was a child, it didn't bother me when I found out Santa didn't exist. I dropped the matter and went on with life.
Since you think God doesn't exist, why can't you drop the subject and move on, you flustered anti-theist?
As long as there are fundie religious nut-jobs trying to write their beliefs into laws that govern everyone and trying to have their beliefs taught as fact in public schools there will be no "moving on".

So if you do not know, or do not care to know, the reality will change?
If you do not know or care to know what happens when you die, the reality will change?
If you do not know, nor care to know what is the purpose of your life, the reality will change and your life will become purposeless?
These are the topics which are main subjects of every religion, you just cannot say, I do not know and I do not care to know.
That is what Atheism should explain and provide "alternative theories".
Just denying things will not solve the problems and these are not "trivial matters"
Not that it matters, but I already know that when I die, my body will start rotting, and it will be cremated. My family will remember me for a while, and certain friends will too. Other than that, pretty much nothing else will happen. No reality will change, whether I do or do not know these things.

The purpose of my life was never mentioned in that last post, and not knowing what happened millions of years ago, has no relevance to what my life is now. Again, you assume things in which you are just plain wrong. I know the purpose of my life, and I have fulfilled most of the objectives that were mine to fulfill. My purposes were mine to choose, and I did choose what to do with my life.

I do not know, nor do I care what happened millions of years ago. I do know that thousands of years ago, religions were created and rules set forth, and those too, have no bearing on my life, and I can and do say that I do not care, because I - do - not - care.

If atheism explained and provided alternate theories, it would be a religion, and not atheism. There is no problem in not having that particular problem.

And yes, when it comes to my life, religions are trivial matters, which I leave to the superstitious and silly people who dabble in them. They are much like those who used to play at seances, and other games in which they pretend to communicate with the dead.

Another confused and flustered atheist belching out lies , one after another..
Actually not. LOL!

You don't know, and you are not even guessing, you are accepting what some collection plate toting spell caster has told you. None of us can know, not yet. There simply is no proof, and without the proof, we cannot know. To say you can, is a lie.

You can't tell me that the Abrahamic god doesn't cater to the prick, or that he would protect a child from being raped. We all know, that no child has any protection coming from any god. In my estimation, the gods are all pissy little weasels, and the god of Abraham one of the pissiest.

You will prove your words, won't you? You called me a liar, now prove it, of STFU!

Your filler material is hatred towards Christians. You'll pay a steep price for that after your short pathetic life is over.
The filler material that was being referred to was religion, MUQ is sure that atheism is one, but he just can't make us see what he can't see either, but he is sure is there.

I'm Ok, that you see it as Christainity, I am sure that MUQ sees it more as Islam, but what do I care what you two hallucinate? My life already has been long, productive, and reasonably happy. I am also as certain as one can be that I have many great years left.

I've never understood how God could expect his creatures to pick the one true religion by faith — it strikes me as a sloppy way to run a universe.
There is not one true religion. There is some truth in all religions. However, there is one true God who inhabits heaven and that is the living God of Israel. This God established a covenant with mankind so that we can have hope in our death. It has always been Gods' intent for us to live past this earthly life and live forever. The purpose of life is life and God created mankind because she was lonely.

Why can't you simply say... I denounce the practice of Islamic child brides?

My sites like all advertised sites are closely maintained and monitored for safety thanks.

Today hundreds of little girls were forced to marry a man old enough to be their grandfather and are being raped after the ceremony in Islamic nations under the blessing of Allah. Why can't you simply, clearly state you are against this terrible practice?

It's wonderful how much we have evolved as a species from those barbaric times, now, if only the religious nuts would catch up.
