<quoted text>What is cult like about atheism?

what bible does an atheist use?

no, your theory is full of holes and basded on proven lies.
There is a general consensus that:

A person who believes in a specific God is a Theist.

A person who actively denies the existence of God is an Atheist.

A person who feels that we have no method by which we can conclude whether a deity exists is an Agnostic.

“The word cult in current popular usage usually refers to a new religious movement or other group whose beliefs or practices are considered abnormal or bizarre.[1] The word originally denoted a system of ritual practices. The word was first used in the early 17th century denoting homage paid to a divinity and derived from the French culte or Latin cultus,‘worship’, from cult-,‘inhabited, cultivated, worshipped,’ from the verb colere,'care, cultivation'.”~ Wikipedia

“Dogma is the official system of belief or doctrine held by a religion, or a particular group or organization”~ Wikipedia.

Organizations of atheists ritually denounce the existence of God. They have become an organization, dedicated to the activity of removing all relic’s of Theism from public places. Their dogma is based entirely on their notion or belief that God does not exist. These organizations work tirelessly towards this effort.

It is no longer possible for an individual to simply state they are an atheist, by reason of personal belief, and not be affiliated, by membership or indirect alignment with these organizations.

These organizations have an official system of belief and their doctrine is to end the belief of theism on this planet.

They are exclusive, ritualistic, and have a belief system which generates activity within and beyond the boundaries of the organization. They are a Cult.

Church, without God

“Stan Bradley likes Bible stories, admires Martin Luther and uses expressions such as 'heavens, no.'

The Lithopolis man is president of a local congregation and rarely misses a Sunday service. Occasionally, he goes to his wife's church instead.

For these and other reasons, Bradley considers himself religious.”

He is also an atheist.

continued:

“Like Bradley, some atheists participate in organized religion for its social and psychological benefits.”

continued:

“Churches are great places to find friends, support and youth education, so nonbelievers and believers alike join congregations to fill those needs, he said.

He has spoken to elderly and sick people who can no longer go to church and they say they most miss the feeling of community.

Recent research from Harvard University and the University of Wisconsin backs him up. It found that religious people tend to be happier than nonreligious people, not because of belief but because of the friendships found at church.”

no, once again you are starting from a faulty basic premise. it is not a general consensus. atheists just acknowledge that there is no evidence of any god, gods or goddesses ever. none.

when you start froma faulty premise, you get a faulty conclusion.

just because someone wrote a funny book and called it a bible, does not support your point. there are many books refered to as "the bible of___"

Pathetic is this nothing forum that has been exposed since 2009. Get your nothing out of here!

Hey Sicko you said you were off work today and ready to physically harm me. I don't remember the exact words but you used capital letters and exclamation points. I do remember a Harley shirt and 265. Scary stuff. I gave you all day to respond but I'm not surprised you are letting your mouth override your ass. It's a common atheist trait. Huff and puff and blow my house down.

I'll just show you some ankle locks or arm bars while making you scream for Gods help. I won't hurt you though. I'm a benevolent puppetmaster who feels sorry for retarded nothings.

There is definitely a coward gene involved with being an atheist. Back to the regularly scheduled nothing.

Reminder- since 2009 this forum has submitted zero evidence in this arena that meets their own criteria. In other words they are cowardly hypocrites.

If you are going to steal other's spam you could at least fix the errors and realize the one book anyways is meant to be funny not serious.

I really don't get what you fundies get out of claiming atheism is a religion and Christianity isn't. Maybe you just like to deny reality in general.

Let it be known that since 2009 atheists have been resorting to evidence free posts. They can't answer questions such as I've presented. They need a God they don't believe in to have a voice. They have been exposed thoroughly.

This is a forum of bigots not simple nonbelievers. Since they are so insistent on.attempting to marginalize believers I have called them out to debate for years. All I require is an.accountable position that meets their own criteria. I guess they could admit their criteria is worthless and we can begin.again. Agenda based bigots don't do that though.

I can't stress enough the degree of crazy in these folks to spend years on illogical and irrational anti-science nonclaims hoping to diminish something they don't believe in.

Rose has no conscience.
If Rose had a conscience there would be evidence of one.
There is no evidence Rose has a conscience.
Therefore, Rose has no conscience.

Save your disbelief Rose. We get it. Your nothing has been clear for years.

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 66,160 posts to show otherwise.
Stump an antitheist! Ask them what they believe. True
science that is repeatable and observable.
