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 avoid dodge and ignore questions, hardly a discussion is it.
Your explanations regarding the qualities of a true prophet are lacking in anything substancial as representative of a god. You offer nothing other than the thoughts of a man, and that just won't do for the majority of sensible people.
That is a nice reply from someone who does not have any idea who are prophets and what are their qualities.

When I gave you choice to present your own list you could not come out with any.

Now instaed of commenting on my list, you show "marked disinterest", what type of positive arguments are these?

If you do not know anything, ask from people who know.

Why remain in darkness and spend and end your life in confusion?

There's no such thing as god. Its because you don't have any proof.
You might *feel* like there's a god, but this is just chemicals in your body and nothing special at all.
Once you realise that you make up the reasons for feeling a certain way in your head, you will realise that you have been sold the ultimate scam - religion!!
Sorry if we choose not to take your word for your atheist religion.

You can't insult atheism by calling it a religion.

Why remain a cowardly liar with no proof of god, incapable of addressing hard facts of life, ending your life willfully denying the understanding of the world he's in?

That's a good idea. Never go to the source for your information.

In fact I would suggest the further from the ones who would actually know the answer, the better.

For instance who better to give you cooking advice, than a sewer technician? None, go for the gold, the sewer guy has your answer to all things culinary.

And should you need to ascertain NASA's projected budget for the year 2015, you should go no further afield than the neighborhood playground, where every 6 year old has the correct answer. Though you might be a bit careful how you go about questioning the kiddies.

This one you already know, but for information on atheism, ask those least capable of knowing the correct answers, the religitard

Atheist Alliance International (AAI) has been accorded Special consultative status by the United Nations, enabling the organization to better serve the need of the world’s growing non-religious population and defend the interests of atheists and non-believers who are facing persecution from governments.

Also of interest (I hope), quote...
The BHA took a central role this week in revealing that 46 schools around the UK have Sex and Relationships Education policies that discriminate against homosexuality. The policies are apparently based upon the bigoted Thatcher-era legislation which banned local authorities from 'promoting' homosexuality or recognising its acceptability as a 'pretended family relationship'. Although Section 28 was repealed 10 years ago, around half the schools have policies which reference Section 28 as if it was still in force, while the rest recreate it with lines about not promoting homosexuality.

The word cult in current usage is a pejorative term for a New Atheist movement while religion a milder term less offensive.

That your horrid and uncaring deity would simply stand by and allow such things to occur?
Proves he doesn't care- and is therefore, a monster.
No it doesn’t. You just gave me your opinion. Proof isn’t derived from people’s opinions.

I dunno, Bob. You’re pretty adamant to disprove religion. But I’d say your line of reasoning has been pretty hazy thus far. It is just logically unsound no matter what you believe.

I just can’t get past the irony that, for all the weight you claim to give accurate human reasoning, you’ve presented an argument that is almost devoid thereof and riddled with conjecture.

I’m done. This argument can’t be resolved by proof if we can’t even agree on the definition of proof.

Nope. I gave an **observation** about your god's **failure** to act **godly**.

And you just brush it off as if it did not happen!

I already have-- many times. You just keep **ignoring** the facts.

Yet, you cannot muster up even ONE (1) counter-argument apart from "IS NOT" (as in the above)?

Nope-- it's based soundly on observational fact:

GOD-PREVENTABLE EVIL EXISTS.

That is observational FACT.

Which you keep IGNORING.

Of course not. Why would you? He tells you the truth, but you have a better source, who claims the truth is her version.

As long as you have a former Mother Superior/crack ho, now turning tricks at the Blazing Flamingo motel, where you spend your spare change, why would you ever have any doubts. No atheist could possibly know as much about themselves as you and she know.

A divine portent that your version of God is dying?

Like the many other Gods invented by humans, exploited by humans, so a few self chosen individual humans have power and comfort over other humans as seen in history many times?

What sort of question is this?

First prove to me that men and women are created equal, in any way?

Why you have different sports for men and women? Why do they not run side by side in races, in boxing , in wrestling?

And I want to ask you another question, do you treat your mother, your sister and your daughter , "In the same way" as you treat your wife?

Answer in yes and know and it would suffice!!

You and your Y and N Question!!
