Nobody with a brain wants what you nincompoops are pushing. You're the nut screaming on the corner now -- something you'd cross the street to avoid. Why do you bother? Nobody gives a sh!t what kind of crap you believe. Why don't you flock together with other like minded idiots on the religious threads and stroke each other to your heart's content? Why do you continue to try to push a drug nobody wants? What do you think you're accomplishing with your maudlin crap? Nobody feels anything for you but contempt outside your little backwoods collection of inbreds who LO AND BEHOLD!-- think jus' lak yew!
Get lost lamebrain -- your time of throwing your weight around by threatening people with your brand of eternal hell is dying as you regurgitate the medieval horsesh!t you were force-fed from birth, or picked up later in life like the inbred hillbilly you most assuredly are.
why do you have so much hate what happened to you?It is sad to see someone so completely lost.

That's because you think it was all made just for you. How self-centered.
I see it more as we evolved to suit the environment rather than the environment was created just for us.
Truth is, if you think the environment was specifically made by a "god" then the Flying Spaghetti Monster must be closer to reality. Cephalopods have much more space to thrive in and have much better eye design than humans. Go figure.
Truth is you think you are just a cosmic fart in the scheme of things. How idiotic.

Your right twice, I didn't have what it takes. A willingness to ignore reality, and an ignorant, childish belief in fairtales. Also, it's not gods fault, nor is it Harry Potters fault, and it isn't little Bo Peeps fault or any othe make-believe character.
Just in case you didn't know.... Being willfully ignorant isn't something to be proud of.
Reality is God. He uses simple things to confound the so-called wise. If you can honestly look at everything and say it was just a cosmic accident then you deserve to be as stupid as that sounds.

I really like how all the theists look at the grand expanse of the universe and see how the earth is EXACTLY where it should be to sustain life and they ignore all the science, evidence and reason that explains how that came to be, and say, It must have been a magic sky pixie!!! LOL!!!! How completely STUPID does one have to be to say that?
LMAO SCIENCE?? Why don't you call it what it is? SPECULATION on sc ience's part, nothing more. Why o Grand Pooh Bah doesn't the moon have life on it? Why isn't there water and other essential ingredients for life on other planets around us? Why don't you admit that you just don't have a frickin' clue?

Nothing is evolving monkeys are still monkeys-apes are still apes-fish are still fish. Where is the scientific evidence of evolution surely after all these years there must be some evidence of some species that has evolved. Where is the evidence??????????Where is the proof

Why are you so goddamned persistently STOOPID? It is sad to see a person in the 21st century who believes in the equivalent of giants and elves and world-wide floods and vengeful, perverted sky daddies. Most people wish you'd die before you passed on your defective DNA. Sometimes you do, but not enough.
What did you do? Burn your fingers trying to make an offering to your self? Anybody with half a brain, which leaves you out, would believe they crawled out of a mudhole some billions of years ago and evolved into what mankind is today. Granted, some people aren't too bright but that is the STUPIDEST lie ever perpretated on man.

Atheism is a dwindling religion.

You think it was made in six days by a failure of a god. I'll take my chances with the science that beat smallpox and put a man on the moon, and leave you to the mythology, thank you very much.

Those aren't difficult questions. Neither are these from this Christian "pinhead."

The 10% brain myth is just one example of what you have wrong in your post. Virtually everything you said was wrong. Not just slightly wrong mind you, but laugh out loud, how stupid can one person be, type of wrong.

There are literally mountains (Dinosaur National Monument) of evidence for evolution (every natural history museum in the world). That you're not capable of understanding it is not my problem.

.. You cannot destroy religion because human beings were created to worship a creator....
It isn't a matter of 'destroying religion'. Belief in Abrahamic gods is dying out in the face of knowledge, the Internet and scientific discoveries. The harm that religion does (e.g. prejudice against gays, child genital mutilation, etc) need to be confronted in the meantime. And one cannot get rid of just witchcraft or Islamism while trying to maintain another superstition like Christianity. That is why religion will go.

Religion = superstition
Theology = mythology

Thank-you SOOOOOOO Much for that post!!!! As an atheist, I couldn't in my wildest dreams hope to post ANYTHING that better demonstates the absolute ignorance of a theist/godbot!!!!

I don't know if you are trying to be funny, or if you are simply that ignorant. I hope it's just you trying to be funny.

Which god is that? There are thousands to chose from. f you have some real proof that there is a god, cough it up. Until than, it's a silly little fairytale. Grow up, there is no happy-happy sky pixie.

Ahhhhh, yup, yup, that's aright Jethro!!! Tha's ahow that thar evoluuuusion works!!! Aaaaa yup, that's jus what is saaays in that tha fancy readin' book.

You are an embarrassment to yourself, and just to stupid to realize it. Maybe you should actually read something about evolution before you misrepresent what it says, and look like some backwoods, inbred hillbilly, redneck, hick. And I don't mean read from some idiotic, creationist site. I mean read what it RAELLY is about. Personally, I don't care if you look like an uneducated godbot, hick. To me, it simply demonstrates the backwards, uneducated, ignorant thinking that is required to believe in an invisible, cloud-gremlin. Oh, and two more quick things... Atheism is not a religion. And atheism is on the rise.

That is because their friends and associates let them get away with that kind of senseless drivel, and it reenforces that ignorance.
