My question is, if you have seen such 'Marvelous from God,' why do you not believe? God wants you back...:)
That sounds exactly like a ... threat.

We have witnessed the "gifts" from your god--they are ... ugly.

Usually involving someone getting killed, or driven to suicide from persecution, by people of your cult.

Pass.

You know hell couldn't exist! If it did satan would have all the greatest minds and strategical genius at his disposal. In the bible he is shrewd and cunning. You really think he would torturing those assets or using them to overthrow heaven?

Heaven will have a bunch of drooling half wits and a god general scared of iron chariots!

Lol!

<quoted text>Threatening an atheist with hell? Or with satan?

Or even making empty promises of your heaven?

Is EXACTLY like telling YOU that "santa will not bring you presents".

EXACTLY the same thing.

Just as soon as you make the connection?

You will understand why we laugh at your Dead Jew on a Stick stories.

Indeed. Iron chariots require manipulation of fire.

Something bible-god is not very good at...

If you would stop having such insult-worthy beliefs?
Maybe the insults would diminish.
Just a thought...
Okay, sooooo Bob, tell me about yourself?:) What do you believe, or not...?

Threatening an atheist with "satan" is the same as threatening YOU with Batman...
... seriously-- it's exactly the same thing.
Seriously, that's funny, cause I like Batman... His last movie was awesome...

Anyway, I'm listening...:)

I believe in things which can be shown to be logical, reasonable and backed with facts and figures.

Unfortunately for people such as yourself, that pretty much means all gods are unbelievable.

The more ludicrous the god-claims are? The more unbelievable they are-- and the more >>evidence<< they require to be true.

Since there is zero objective evidence for >>any<< god?

That pretty much leaves them all unbelievable.

How's that?

Haven't been happier since I kicked toxic religion to the curb.

As for sin? That's self-inflicted nonsense.

Entirely fiction, in other words.

It is not real. There is no bible god, the bible contradicts and invalidates itself.
