i have proven langoliers lies time and time again.
I don't see any evidence. Dismissed. I provided evidence of atheist lying two pages prior. You were silent. Click the appropriate page and go see what evidence is.

I'm glad we have various subjects to discuss since atheism is nothing.

Anyway, what else do you guys have on atheism you haven't voiced in four years. Atheism is simply disbelief. Got it. End forum. Apparently there is more that necessitates it have its own forum and tens of thousands of posts. Hmmm
What do you suppose that is?

By the way.. If someone is pro life and anti gay and doesn't believe in a god... They are just as true of an atheist as a pro choice gay rights advocate who doesn't believe in a god.

I know you understand this. I know you aren't stupid. I'm just curious what point you are really trying to make when you respond with the nothing this and nothing that rant.

You seem to be aiming toward..... Nothing.....!?!

Why do they hate other peoples harmless beliefs then? Anyone could understand not liking beliefs that are harmful to others (like extreme terrorist type zealots, that insist people view things their way and thier way only, and think nothing of creating hell on earth for people that don't) but why the need for SOME (not all) to hate on that which is harmless, just merely different from what they don't believe in?
There's no excuse for hatred of the harmless, not even ignorance.
Harmless beliefs? Tell that to all the women killed during the Salem Trials and all the other witch hunts throughout history.
Tell that to all the women who were forced to stay in abusive marriages because the buybull states that women must obey their husbands and that divorce is wrong.
Tell that to all the slaves whose enslavement was legal because the buybull tells slaves to be obedient to their masters.
Tell that to all the Heretics and Jews massacred in the inquisitions and crusades. They were killed because the buybull demands the killing o infidels who worship different gods.
Tell that to gay people like myself who were made to hate ourselves for something we have no control of, because the buybull states that gay men should be put to death.
People like you try to make Christianity look peaceful and pretend that it is just crazy fundies that create problems. However many of the great bigotries and crimes of history; slavery, intolerance, sexism, and homophobia, are supported and even promoted by the buybull.

Intolerance and hatred are often encouraged by books, dumbo! Take for example, Mein Kampf. Your buybull is a book that encourages hate and intolerance.

Hey that's a good one!
Here, we have civil laws against hatred and bullying of others on line.
I'd love to see the courts get a hold of some of them and make them into public examples of the ignorance they personify!!

I disagree, and find hateful vitriol against others, Especially in braid range, one brush sweeps, both WRONG and intolerant (as in BIGOTRY and Stereotyping) probably based upon your own intolerances of OTHERS beliefs that differ from yours, which is based upon YOUR OWN ignorance,that of which you are even too Ignorant to see.

The Bibles I've learned from -NEVER taught hate OR intolerance.Quite the opposite, so please do not include people sch as myself, into such a little marble headed sphere of Ignorance.

Nooooo thank you.

And just for the record, those same Bibles, belong to any and everyone for the reading, not just a certain, select group of people, so for you to even add a possessive pronoun in front of such, actually shows the doubleness of your OWN ignorance and hatred.

Those of us that know better, already realize, Hitler was a socio-psychopath. So was Saddam Hussien, no "bible or koran" needed (exceptt when he was feining religion for the sake of poliTical manuevering.)

Kind of a third indicator of your own spews of incitement of hatred of displaced, twisted and warped type.

People harm others out of their own ignorance, hatred, intolerance and other inhumane imperfections. NOT books.

AtheisTic name calling at others, not really being one of any such subject matter.

Courage is what it takes to stand up and speak; courage is also what it takes to sit down and listen.

Let's continue to stand up for those who are vulnerable to being left out or marginalized.
Hillary Clinton

Follow the path of the unsafe, independent thinker.(Ooooh-now that's BRILLIANCE just in itself lol)
Expose your ideas to the dangers of controversy. Speak your mind and fear less the label of 'crackpot' than the stigma of conformity. And on issues that seem important to you, stand up and be counted at any cost.

You can believe in what you want, but that does not change facts.
The buybull encourages sexism, tolerance, and violence.
Sexism in the buybull
1 Corinthians 14:34 - 35*

34. Let your women keep silence in the churches: for it is not permitted unto them to speak; but [they are commanded] to be under obedience, as also saith the law.
35 And if they will learn any thing, let them ask their husbands at home: for it is a shame for women to speak in the church.
(Woman to be silent in church. A woman is not to speak in church)

Ephesians 5:22 - 25*

22 Wives, submit yourselves unto your own husbands, as unto the Lord.
23 For the husband is the head of the wife, even as Christ is the head of the church: and he is the saviour of the body.
24 Therefore as the church is subject unto Christ, so [let] the wives [be] to their own husbands in every thing.
25 Husbands, love your wives, even as Christ also loved the church, and gave himself for it;
(Wives must submit themselves to their husband, afterall he is the head of the wife)
Slavery in the Buybull
When a man sells his daughter as a slave, she will not be freed at the end of six years as the men are. If she does not please the man who bought her, he may allow her to be bought back again. But he is not allowed to sell her to foreigners, since he is the one who broke the contract with her. And if the slave girl's owner arranges for her to marry his son, he may no longer treat her as a slave girl, but he must treat her as his daughter. If he himself marries her and then takes another wife, he may not reduce her food or clothing or fail to sleep with her as his wife. If he fails in any of these three ways, she may leave as a free woman without making any payment.(Exodus 21:7-11 NLT)
Violence encouraged in the buybull
Kill Witches
You should not let a sorceress live.(Exodus 22:17 NAB)

Kill Homosexuals
"If a man lies with a male as with a women, both of them shall be put to death for their abominable deed; they have forfeited their lives." (Leviticus 20:13 NAB)

Kill Fortunetellers
A man or a woman who acts as a medium or fortuneteller shall be put to death by stoning; they have no one but themselves to blame for their death.(Leviticus 20:27 NAB)
Death to Followers of Other Religions
Whoever sacrifices to any god, except the Lord alone, shall be doomed.(Exodus 22:19 NAB)

I remember, when I was a kid, watching my mother jam herself into her girdle - a piece of equipment so rigid it could stand up on its own - and I remember her coming home from fancy parties and racing upstairs to extricate herself from its cruel iron grip.
Susan Orlean

It's easy to kick somebody when they're down. George W. Bush has dealt with more difficult issues than any president since Franklin Roosevelt. And I've told my colleagues it's time that we go stand up for the president.
John Boehner

A fact is like a sack - it won't stand up if it's empty. To make it stand up, first you have to put in it all the reasons and feelings that caused it in the first place.

I don't know what aids has to do with anything. I stated that the buybull encourages hatred, intolerance, and sexism, and you responded by bringing up a non nonsensical rambling on aids. Point is that books encourages ideas, whether good or bad. The buybull encourages despicable things like slavery, homophobia, and sexism.

It has me completely amazed that I see people on here who can continuously call others bigots and are upset about name calling... And in the same comment will insult and use bigotry.

yeah...the cult members always run away when you ask them how they can follow a god that condones slavery...some openly deny it is inthe bible...

cult minds are tough to fathom...there is no rationale or accountability there...
