I was thinking of real abuse, not just his story book.

But you raise a good point. Why didn't god just lay a big jesus egg instead of impregnating a girl?

Your whole narrative is reliant on God to have a voice. Logic and rationality are lost on liberal atheists. Do you have an example of evidence that meets the criteria you hold others accountable to?
How does a bigot measure the evidence for the following possibilities: prime mover, always was, something from nothing. Show your work.
You can't even make up an accountable position to debate vs a prime mover. The reason your forum won't engage is they realize just how futile their nonposition is.
Debate nothing with your other personalities. I don't debate nothing Stumpy.*38
Make sure to skip the questions. Nobody realizes just how helpless you are LOL. Questions...a-a-a-a

I have seen a picture of the earth taken from the moon and I didn't see any pillars.

John may say some crazy things and ignore answers.....

But....

I'm gonna be "that guy". And say I don't think the constant name calling and assertions that he is a horrible human being are called for.

The copy and paste is annoying and his ignorance is frustrating..... But that's all...

Say what you want but I think some atheists are just participating in a gauntlet of angry words that john is willingly running though with ears plugged and eyes closed.

It just seems like a waste of time and emotion for everyone until the occasional real conversations are had.

It's astonishing how dishonest you folk are - no shame whatsoever. You will play victim at any and every opportunity.

This is a discussion forum. I'm new to this particular thread but can see that in the absence of any real argument John has decided to simply repeat the same phrase ad nauseum.

Its a shame because he should be able to counter every argument with his own research and understanding of faith.

But thats where being so pious without being objective becomes destructive. He is no different to some of those fundamentalists who wish to impose a strict dogma on people simply because thats the way it is.

I think sometimes we try to debate with poes and people who obviously aren't 'the full shilling'.

There isn't much to discuss with religion/atheism really. There are no such things as gods and pixies. One song says it all..
http://www.atheismuk.com/2012/03/31/atheism/y...

One reason I come here is that I'm interested in what non-believers think on certain issues and there are no Humanist or Ethical Topix forums.

Another reason I come here is offer support; or help show non-believers that they don't need religion, religious language (beliefs, atheism, agnosticism) or religious thinking at all.(Search humanism, skeptics, rationalist, Brights, etc). I sometimes challenge religionists on areas where I feel religion/superstition are harmful, such as creationism; religious courts; prejudices against gays, non-believers or bastards; sectarianism; child abuse and mutilation; etc.

You skipped the point. Your repetition exposes that you realize you have no evidence stronger than that of your primitive mediaeval forefathers who unwittingly accepted faith over rationalism.
Come on back when you have a clue. What's the object of your venom today?....Evolution, science, homosexuality?
Stump an theist! Ask them why they believe without evidence. 3
