When South Florida atheists held their first meeting, they were just five friends, having a beer at a bar.

(sigh)

I know. I think the only data that I have on the atheist position, from which I conclude, in which they all agree is that, they don't believe roses smell good....

And because of that I will try and keep roses away from any atheists I come across, and tell them why....

Believer: Look at all the Christians in the world!
Sane Poster: Yes people can be easily deluded so anyways how do we observe evidence for this god chap?
Believer: Obama swore in on the bible not a copy of the god delusion!
Same poster: And? Look all I am saying is why is it a good thing to believe something on faith alone without a Hint of proof?
Believer: You believe a rock rolled into a puddle because of the Big Bang and then people and all the animals came running out of that rock and puddle!
Same poster:..... I have never heard such a thing but at least in that example we have proof of rocks and puddles so it's still more plausible than a god doing it right?
And on and on :)

The ethical bankruptcy of secularism, as evidenced in the profitability and popularity of violent video games, is behind a rash of mass murders committed by desensitized kids who think killing sprees are a form of entertainment!
Spare me. There is only one reason we didn't have violent video games a generation ago. Morality had nothing to do with it. The technology didn't exist. Kids had toy soldiers, tanks and guns.

March, march, march...hate that God you don't believe in.
You loons create so many bullshit tangents to avoid your nothing its more incredible than something from nothing.
Atheistic regimes have been responsible for more death than all other religions combined. It isn't even close.
If you don't accept a historical Jesus you must also reject a broad range of other history.
Why? Can you give a real reason, some examples?
John wrote:
Moral relativism is a sickness. There is something beyond societal values and mores called the natural law.
This stumped you bigots three years ago, but you like to repeat bullshit until you believe it.
Do any of you have an accountable position to debate? Of course not you're just throwing irrelevant crappy against a wall hoping something sticks.
I've given my accountable position many, many times. But you won't even debate point 1!
1. If god exists, there is evidence for his existence.
By "god", I mean a god like one in the buy-bull. All knowing, all powerful, truthful, cares about what we do, and says he'll answer our prayers. If "god" can mean anything, there is nothing to debate. In fact, it seems to me, that if god existed, there would be some much evidence of his existence, we'd no more debate his existence than we would debate the existence of gravity.
2. There is no evidence of god's existence.
3. There is no god.

So, John, come on, debate!

Still no takers willing to debate the nothing vs the something.
Why waste perfectly good puppy blood?

Violence? You can get all the violence you want out of the bible so I guess we must remove that violent book from our children's view.

Brilliant!

And the BuyBull is also full of rape, slavery, forced-sex-brides, incest, murder, infanticide.

And these are just the actions of it's GOD! Nasty piece of work is the BuyBull.

Rated Triple-X, at the very least. Just for the rape scenes alone.

That is because the game controller lets him interact with the activity.

In direct contrast to the BuyBull where all you can do is read it and become a mindless drone.

Or, if you manage to keep THINKING while you read it? An atheist.

Either way-- in this case, there is little chance of a third outcome.

So it's a good thing kids are avoiding the evil BuyBull.

Indeed it is--- Harry Potter teaches kids that it doesn't matter who you were born as--

-- what matters is HOW YOU CHOOSE TO LIVE.

Something that Genuine Christianity™ does NOT teach: it has the "always forgive no matter what" thing.

Meaning that even Voldemort could get into heaven-- simply by saying "Jewsus forgive me" at the last second.

Which teaches kids that they may do ANYTHING-- anything at all, and get away with it.

Not a good lesson to teach.

Among other things, the level of education in America continues to decline compared to other developed countries. We are no longer number one in the world. U.S. students fall behind 31 countries in math proficiency and behind 16 countries in reading proficiency. And if that's not bad enough, the U.S. ranks near the bottom of 17 affluent countries in life expectancy. Unbelievably and despite our advanced medical technology, the U.S. is 34th in the world in infant mortality! And all because amoral secularism focuses on personal convenience and entertainment more than it does anything else.

All religions are distortive, so is science. Both arrive at approximations, at best, of reality. Religions has been the cause of much prejudice and cruelty, but the bombs over Hiroshima were not dropped by God. Science is apt to turn into another religion, if it has not done so already. The distortions in religion and science have been truly disasterous. Atheists and the religious alike demonstrate that any fanaticism is vicious, one-sided, and limiting. causing a kind of tunnel vision that is dangerous.

No thanks to computer technology, America is growing a crop of overweight stupefied kids who don't know how to use their imaginations. You rarely see them playing outside of their own free will and volition. Instead they are planted in front of their game boxes munching bags of Doritos and downing soft drinks by the gallon. Parents, educators, and doctors are seeing creative and spontaneous play disappear in the wake of increased video game play time. In order to function well in the real world, children must experience “actual reality, not virtual reality".

Those "overweight" kids score higher on intellectual tests.

Well, let's look at the benefits of video games, shall we?

They aren't out doing drugs and shooting each other for real.
They learn hand-eye coordination that benefits them in any career.
They learn cooperation skills as well as advanced planning and critical thinking.
Because of these skills we have found a very good use for the video game player, they help us in chemistry and biology when dealing with three dimensional and spacial atomic structures.

Online they have access to more information than we ever dreamed even existed when we were their age.
They get exposed to various other cultures, increasing their international exposure will benefit any career in the future.
They often learn conversational levels of other languages simply because they need them to talk to their friends. I know a 12 year old Russian on IRC who is on there simply to learn English, and he's really good with the language, even better than most US christians.
Many kids are now even finding fame as their careers, through such sites as YouTube, and not even needing to work at fast food because of it.

Face it, you cannot outweigh the benefits no matter what you try. You just don't like the internet because it's where all religions come to die.

The problem is you lack the comprehension or education to understand the difference between fact and opinion. To say roses smell good is an opinion but you are trying to say it's a fact. As usual you are wrong.

Here let me help you retard. Say I think roses smell good or perhaps, many people think roses smell good. At that point you will be phrasing it with the ability of a 5th grade education! Hurray!

Glad to be of help. You're welcome.

So you confess to being anti progress. Well that's more than many of your fellow Christholes. Throughout history your ilk has been anti progress. Don't build that telescope, you'll use it to look up god's skirt or see what he is beating off to in heaven! Don't you dare say the earth is round, does not the bible say the earth is square flat and resting on four pillars? Off with his head! Don't you dare mix those herbs with oils and try to cure a sickness or kill pain that makes you a witch! Burn the witch! Don't use stem cells to cure diseases! Jesus will weep at those frozen cells being harvested for good use instead of incinerated!

I could go on and on but you are simply following in the footsteps of the dullard Christians before you.

Thank you and exactly! If a Hindu man raped his daughters after beating their mother and his his unconscious and then killed all of them he could later in prison become a Christian say run a dub dub Jesus and poof! He goes to heaven while his victims who never said rub a dub dub Jesus are burning in hell. Neato!

Seriously this is what Christians believe, some will begrudgingly admit it.

Yes, the bombs over Hiroshima to drop were ordered by the US president Harry Truman. He was never been made responsible for these war crimes!
