No it doesn't and why would you care that a wispy little nothingness would have to pretend that it was in pain? LOL!

First of all, it doesn't exist, and if it did, it would have to retain some fleshy aspects to be capable of being punished. Fleshy bits are dead, it is all dead.

And while you wait for your after death reward, those thumpers of the holy books, have thier rewards now. You are handing over your bit to god, now aren't you. He needs money, lot's and lot's of lovely, lovely money.

You have to lie about atheists to spread your hate cult. Atheists are more honest that you liars with no proof of god.

Critical posting on topix generally refers to reading in a scholarly context, with an eye toward identifying a text or author's viewpoints, arguments, evidence, potential biases, and conclusions. Critical reading means evaluating what you have read using your knowledge as a scholar. You may look at the quality of the writing, the quality of the research, and the persuasiveness of the arguments, among other things. Critical reading is an active process by which a scholar rigorously and systematically questions the literature with the goal of assessing credibility and validity.

It's the christians that are in it for the money. "...they all look to their own way, every one for his gain, from his quarter...and tomorrow shall be as this day, and much more abundant". Isaiah 56:11-12.

I can't speak for America,,,but here you would find a lot of Christians can be biggoted hypocrites with a touch of racism thrown in. I know plenty of atheists who would give you the shirt of their back, if you were in need.

If I'm lying, then I'm not the Messiah. Isaiah 53:9 "...neither was any deceit in his mouth". When VWD Day comes, I will have plenty of converts. Isaiah 54:1-3 "...For you shall break forth on the right hand and on the left..."

Obviously. According to the bible, I am mental. Psalm 38:7. But I don't take illegal drugs, I'm on a natural high. Maybe that's why I'm called the "most High".

Whenever we ask you creationists for proof of god, you threaten us with "Judgement Day" or "Hell".

I think you know that you are liars and this Judgement Day is just another attempt to lie your way out of the problem of having absolutely no evidence to back up your sh*tty little made up story.

Instead of threatening us with hell, why can't you prove your god?

What is the matter with you minds? are you really that retarded?

The burden of proof is always on the person making an assertion or proposition. Shifting the burden of proof, a special case of argumentum ad ignorantium, is the fallacy of putting the burden of proof on the person who denies or questions the assertion being made. The source of the fallacy is the assumption that something is true unless proven otherwise.

Take your medicine, freak.

Use a comma to separate the elements in a series (three or more things), including the last two. "He hit the ball, dropped the bat, and ran to first base." You may have learned that the comma before the "and" is unnecessary, which is fine if you're in control of things.

However, there are situations in which, if you don't use this comma (especially when the list is complex or lengthy), these last two items in the list will try to glom together (like macaroni and cheese).

It is the spell casters and thumpers who are in it for the money (and power), gods don't exist. But the people who laud the gods as real need to keep pulling in the green, or else they might have to actually work for a living.

People with Alzheimer's, and people with traumatic brain injuries, have already lost much of their identities.

There is no heaven, there is no hell, either concept is simply ludicrous. Somebody is jerking you around, to see who just look to your wallet.

I actually died, and there was nothing there beyond that last breath and heartbeat. Nothing, LOL! You were sleeping and dreaming, that's proof of life, not proof of an after-life.
