An agnostic view in a court of law would be:

"Maybe he's innocent, and maybe he's guilty."

You can sit on a fence and practice sophomoric sophistry when you're not forced to make a decision, but when it comes to proving anything, ALL propositions are false until proven true, including religious mythologies.

The religious have to prove their laughable myths exist because they're making the false claims. In the complete absence of any evidence, I refuse to grant them an undeserved and unearned platform to talk from. To say "Maybe there's a 'god'" is to be gutless and wishy-washy.

if jesus had to forgive somebody it was the fraccer that put him on the cross ; after that , you freaks are all on your own . jesus might have died because the people of that time figured he was interfering with their sins but that's about all he died for ; their sins not yours , idiot . The idiot was just for shites and giggles

People who do not accept/believe what you do -- on faith -- are not to be called idiots. Your beliefs are not sacrosanct and they do not stand up to scrutiny.

No, the atheist point of view is that we want to see the evidence. In cases of law, a person is innocent until proven guilty. In cases of epistemology, a thing is non-existence until proven to exist.

I worked as a nurse at richmond state for many years and many times rode to work with a guy named pete...he said he was an athiest...he had been raised catholic as i have.....i loved pete as a friend and whether or not he believed in God didnt make me care about him any less. He and I had lengthy debates about God and the Bibke and we enjoyed it, learning from each other. So Pete its been years but i do still think about ya and hoe you are doing well!!

god didn't create man , man created god for people just like you ;simply gullible , a sheep being led to the slaughter . pathetic that this many years later and several versions of the same events in several different languages ; it was all invented for a strange nation of folks without any bearing or self control . I don't mind that you have it but atleast recognize that most bible thumpers are not mentally all there . Can I have 10% tithes but do they ever see the poor or the indigent that they were meant for ? Really , do you think that any dwelling would actually be suitable for your omnipotent god ? Be serious , monotheistic religion with a father , son , holy ghost and a few other varying spirits that jump in and out of bodies as if someone were possessed ; Nice reading but a person can tell that ruling was on the mind of the writers definitely not saving .

And you are perfection? There are no perfect humans. We all have flaws. Some of us can use logic and reason to arrive at an opinion. Others must have someone else defining what is real and what is false, as they are incapable of using reason to arrive at an answer. That seems to be your flaw. Have a good day, you devil
