God hates Shrimp!
Leviticus 11:9-12 says:
9 These shall ye eat of all that are in the waters: whatsoever hath fins and scales in the waters, in the seas, and in the rivers, them shall ye eat.
10 And all that have not fins and scales in the seas, and in the rivers, of all that move in the waters, and of any living thing which is in the waters, they shall be an abomination unto you:
11 They shall be even an abomination unto you; ye shall not eat of their flesh, but ye shall have their carcases in abomination.
12 Whatsoever hath no fins nor scales in the waters, that shall be an abomination unto you.
Deuteronomy 14:9-10 says:
9 These ye shall eat of all that are in the waters: all that have fins and scales shall ye eat:
10 And whatsoever hath not fins and scales ye may not eat; it is unclean unto you.
Eat shrimp burn in hell!
All that lovely seafood, shrimp, crabs, lobsters, oysters and scallops. I guess we will all go to hell happy, with cocktail sauce and rarafied butter on our breath.

It's happening as we speak. Tell me if not why would so many believers spend so much time on an atheist forum? Why would they write all these books and make websites by the hundred? Why spend so much time and effort of we are such a small insignificant number? If this were really true we would not warrant such a massive effort from believers. They would completely ignore us and move on.
So when I see the angry believers coming on here I smile because they prove me right.

Do you see any harm in what I'll call "benign" religious beliefs and actions?(As opposed to people imposing their beliefs on others.) Richard Dawkins' "The God Delusion" includes people going to Lourdes looking for a cure. I might be assuming too much, but I assume the people who go there are people doctors have given up on. Do you see any harm in that kind of thing?

Smart? LOL. Let me guess you two pseudointellectuals lump yourself in that category. Hell you can't even meet your own rules for evidence.

God doesn't exist according to you folks, but he sure occupies your time. Do you think atheists that keep their nothing to themselves and don't force it on others are dangerous?

Save the charade kids you have nothing to contribute or talk about without a God you don't believe in.

Stump an antitheist! Ask them what they believe. Crickets,,,

Just that many people forsake traditional medicine in hopes of a miracle and It doesn't happen. There are some very sad stories of people who have done this and could have easily been cured by an md but wasted time there. James Randi I believe has a great article and study on that. Let me look it up for you.

Nope, no "god" occupies my time. What *does* occupy my time is pointing out the irrational belief in a "god" by those who lack any evidence or logic to support their belief.

Apparently, John can't distinguish between an entity (real or fictive) and the belief in the existence of that entity. The belief, in this case, is certainly real, but the object of that belief? Nope, still no evidence for it.

Another day of ineptitude from the antitheists.*Note to lurkers* They have gone almost three years without giving one accountable position they are willing to debate. Three years without an example of evidence that meets their criteria for evidence. These are angry agenda driven folks that don't give a damn about the evidence.
If you want to subject yourself to this farce by all means see for yourself. Antitheists you could also just cut and paste one of the 62,200 posts to show otherwise.

As I have even trying to do let's change the subject and get this thread back on track. No matter what anyone says or reasoning you use it's just not going to get through his stump temper tantrum.
Ignore the screaming child because the atheist non believer movement is spiking in the US an that's what we should focus on and not let a desperate Christian try to derail a great thread.
The religious crowd knows they are in huge trouble.

Indoctrination sad to say is a powerful enslaving device. Those indoctrinated sheeple are seeing their numbers dwindle, their churches becoming less an less filled and then closing it's doors. This enrages them and they are fighting the only way they know how and that's to attack non believers with nonsense. Yet it's like fighting the tide.
With each passing year reason slowly becomes more of a factor while their superstitious ways dwindle. The more they lose control the more desperate and unhinged thy will become my friend. Just sit back and enjoy the show.

Still waiting for John to debate.
1. If god exists, there is evidence for his existence.
2. There is no evidence of god's existence.
3. God does not exist.
Let's start with point one.
Do you think it would be possible for god to exist, yet there be no evidence of his existence.
At this point, we're not debating if there is any evidence, what would qualify as evidence, or even how we would become aware of it.
John?

I think it's really tragic when people forgo actual medicine in hopes of a miracle cure. I just got the impression that people searched for those cures after medicine had failed. Except for Christian Scientists, who don't use medicine at all.
I'd like to see Randi's article, thanks.

All kinds of weirdness from the marginalized loons today. I'll wait for you to explain your nothing. It is your forum. Henry, send me your $$$.

Stump an antitheist! Ask them what they believe. Logic and rationality stumps them as well.

There are some that try that as a last measure but really would you rather have a dying family member or friend in a controlled sterile environment hoping for some positive update or med change that could save them, Or have them roll in or ewwwwww drink some water that just has a pus dripping disease riddled person in it or say a filling adult diaper?

They have run tests on that water before and I wouldn't wash a dog in it let alone allow someone I cared about drink it.

Let me hunt up that Randi article but you can google up the sad stories of people who got scammed by that and lost more than their money. A lot more.
