Strange? Perhaps you best tell all the Christians,. Jews and Moslems out there that their god books don’t say a thing about the Noah story.

Anyway, atheist know this, it’s godbots who deliberately ignore the documentation

No, just more from a desperate attention wh*re. He'll say anything to get people to pay attention to him. Since he doesn't have anything intelligent to contribute, he just tries to be outrageous. Pathetic, really.

Yep.. Classic Troll, too-- if you ignore him? His posts become ever more plaintive and pitiful.

Then, he'll SPAM some stupid "news" copy/paste on **all** the threads.

In short?

1. The idea that we came from aliens just goes to show how desperate atheists are at coming up with an alternative for the obvious, a creator. And furthermore, it would still not answer the question of origins because it begs the ? who created the aliens?
2. The evidence points to creation more so than to evo.!
3. The evidence for creation is overwhelming; the evidence for evo. is lacking and what there "seems" to be is based on erroneous guesswork.
But you know all of this, I am sure, as you have probably been told time and again by others on here and on the many sites that refute evo.
Stop it. Stop it. STOP IT. The aliens thing was no doubt a joke! There is NOTHING that supports creationism other than the bible, which cannot be used as any sort of proof whatsoever! The real thing this site denies and refuses is religion! Do you know why? Because of people like you, who sit at home and look for sites to try and rant about your theology.

About thy alleged saviours...

At midnight the LORD smote all the firstborn in the land of Egypt, from the firstborn of Pharaoh that sat on his throne unto the firstborn of the captive that was in the dungeon; and all the firstborn of cattle.--Exodus 12:29

A huge steaming pile of Shiite

http://www.touregypt.net/featurestories/moses...

Excerpt:

In the final analysis, attributing Moses to a specific person, or even determining which specific Pharaoh was involved may always be a matter of speculation.

To the modern reader, the biblical Moses seems to oscillate between tradition and reality, and more secure historical knowledge is probably not possible, at least at present..

And though an Exodus could have taken place, the specific details recorded in the Bible largely fall outside the sphere of probability, given the silence of any Egyptian record.

How could it be otherwise?
< your turn to save me here>

In fact, all children are atheists until they reach an age where they can truly understand religious doctrine, which will mean well into their teens.

Children can mimic their parents in prayer, for example, by closing their eyes and clasping their hands together, and repeating some words that they don't understand. Of course even toddler-praying can't happen until a child reaches the age of speech.

Beyond praying though, there is so much more to consider when parents proclaim that their little ones are Christian or Jewish or Hindu or Muslim and so on. To say that someone is "Christian" is to say that the someone understands:

(1) the story of the life of Jesus as told in the Bible;
(2) the concepts of heaven and hell;
(3) the concept of "faith" in an invisible
entity;
(4) sin;
(5) forgiveness;
(6) the Triune God and
(7) communion.

With all this complicated theology in mind, picture a 5-month-old infant contentedly filling her diaper, and try to convince anyone that she understands all of the above.

If she does not, she is not a Christian.

I don't care how much water you sprinkle on her head, or how many magical words you recite over her as she howls in a church, she doesn't have the foggiest idea about any of it.

Which means she cannot be a Christian.

But whatever religious doctrines are held to be infallible by any religion, they are so held by adults only.

Only adults can begin to grasp the concepts involved (and often convoluted) in religious belief.

Therefore only adults can be religious.

Therefore all babies are atheists.

You're full of shit, CuddlingApenis.

Atheism is the belief that no god exists.

Not one baby was ever an atheist.

You might consider embarking on a journey outside the atheist schtick lines someone read to you.

Or not. I'm not pretending to care.

Hey Butt Crack,

You are full of it worse than anyone on these threads.
You don't even know that Atheism is not a belief at all.
And, yes, everyone is born a nonbeliever until the likes of people like you start indoctrinating.

LOL!

Buck lives to post random tripe and dares you to argue with him, and it feeds off of his complete narcissism.

I dismissed him and his juvenile responses long ago but I do comment about him with others.

He is so totally obsessed with himself he is compelled to respond to anything that has his name in it.

We pull the strings... he dances till the fat lady sings. She hasn't shut up in years so he keeps dancing and dancing.

The reminds me of a goldfish aimlessly wandering in circles all day.

Here's the other portion of that which wouldn't fit in the context of 4000 characters.

Theists do not, cannot, will not think this through, they refuse to think less they disturb their fragile faith.

How can any rituals done over/for/around a baby affect the baby's understanding of the world around it?

The infant doesn't understand language or geography or personal property or income taxes or.....anything at all, really.

To then present that baby to a priest and after some water sprinkles and some solemn words say that the baby is now Catholic, means that the baby magically understands the difference between a venal sin and a mortal sin.

Can't you see how silly that is?

The baby understands nothing more than was understood before the religious ceremony.

And, since the infant in question does not understand, let alone believe, in any kind of God at all, it is an atheist -- a being without religious belief.

Case closed argument over

"It has not done so up to now. I cannot imagine a god who rewards and
punishes the objects of his creation, whose purposes are molded after our own - a god who is but a reflection of human frailty. Neither do I believe that the individual survives the death of his body. I am convinced that some activities by (Roman) Catholic organizations are dangerous. I mention here the fight against birth control as a time when overpopulation has become a serious threat to health and to any attempt to organize peace on this planet."
