I think your thought process has issues. Take some Ginko pills. I think Alzheimer's is setting in.
Really, so those two sentences look alike to you too?

Yours: 1.You return because you doubt your own cult.
His: 2. So are you saying that I'm attacking yours?

Not a whole lot of gray matter packed into the old family "Educated What" brain trust, I presume?

Creationism is a mental illness. Unforutnately creationists believe that atheists are their doctors..
I think maybe that they should never be told,that tier doctors are most likely atheist.

EW actually posted that he thinks wine has only 5-10% water content....

... wait for it.... it'll hit you.

Yes, he actually said that.

This level of stupid only comes along once in a great while.

Fortunately.

But even among a group that is known the world over as a collection of stupid people?(godbots)

He stands out as one of the stupidest of the stupid.

Just like it takes intelligence to abuse your ex-wife's children. You try to compensate other things for the actions you took in the past. How was jail time?

I'm sure I don't believe in atheism but I'm not sure whether I believe in agnosticism or not.

That much water, huh? I didn't have to wait on that one, at all. I'd bet that 5% water content wine would be some tough chewing?

He is as much an ass, as any poster I have ever encountered, plus he has the added stupid factor, which may not be on a Divine Alien level but, it is not far from that. His most visible malfunction, seems to be that he has no conscience, and no morals. He has much filth to try to say against others, and his main whine seems to be that they will retaliate.
Luckily most of us, would not stoop to his level even for the thrill of leveling his azz, and I for one, have decided that he really doesn't even merit a "click", anymore.
I may respond to his stupidity occasionally, but it won't be often be a direct response. He is simply not worthy of the effort.

Since atheism is just the lack of theism, I don't see how you would even begin to try and believe in it.

If you are looking for something to believe in and reality won't do it for you, I suggest religion. There are mnay available, and most can be tailored to fit only you. There are equally malable gods, all there for the taking

See? As a creationist for proof of god, and the liar will either:

1. Change the subject & attack you
2. Threaten you with Judgement Day
3. Tell you you are going to hell repeatedly.
4. Attempt to lie about atheism telling us all to commit mass genocide.

All of the above are typical dishonest creationist responses to the question:

""Where is the proof of the god you're lying to us about?"

Of the mythical thousands gods there is not a single one real.
