Yeah
I should be honest and say I was actually in a couple synagogues and several churches back in the days of my youth.
This was because the girls I was dating at the time drug me a long and of course I wanted to get laid!
What was confusing was when to stand up, when to sit down, when to kneel, it was a series of Unknown rituals to me
Praise the Lawd
;)
Well, of course! Religious girls are easy.

But you IGNORED my question-- you could win a million dollars!
Let's see you PRACTICE what you preach!
Next time you're in a building with multiple floors?
DO NOT trust the MAN-BUILT ELEVATOR.
Go to a window, and trust you god instead... see if you can fly, why don't you?
I will bet you a million dollars you WILL NOT TRUST YOUR GOD.
But you will take either the elevator or the stairs instead...
...!!!
You are such a hypocrite.
OMGosh, are you okay? Why on God's earth would I try to fly out a window. God did not give us wings to fly... I'm beginning to think you are not very smart. Even a child would have a enough sense to know that...

What is hypocritical about that?... Did you really go to college?

Yes. You can't earn your way to heaven by being good. It must be by faith. God gave us free will, so we are not Stepford children.
God could 'Zap' you into anything if he chose too.
1-Why would God want people to believe in him without showing proof of his existence?
2-How can it be justice for a Buddhist who has never committed any crime to go to hell, but a thief or murderer who converts gets a ticket to the pearly gates?
3-What about people who never got a chance to here of Jesus' precious sacrifice, like Native Americans?

You can't even prove your god and you go around calling other people dumb.

Classic theism.

Because he needs to be surrounded by adoring idiots. Anybody with half a brain may ask too many question. Like three gods in one: isn't that a gay three way?

The standard theist defence is that God wont send people to hell if they are ignorant of the Christian message. They will then be judged according to how they acted. Cause God is supposed to make himself known.. apparently. I used to believe this rubbish :D

The problem with this argument is that you would have no incentive to preach the gospel. Because if for example you told an ignorant person about how great Jesus was, and he rejected the message. Then he would go to eternity in hell. So you would be responsible for his eternal punishment, and he would be better off before. As he would have been better off living in ignorance . So the "great" commission turns out not to be so great after all.

Blasphemy is a victimless crime. There is no god. The only Spirit that would help you understand the book of talking animals is tequila. Salt, shot, lime, repeat until the fairy tale makes sense.

I really feel sorry for these people that blasphemy, they don't know what they're doing and when VWD Day comes, they will only get one chance to repent of any deadly sins they've committed. Sins against Gods person include hatred of God, blasphemy, ticking God off and swearing falsely by the name of God.

And we feel sorry for you for pretending to know more about God than anyone else does.

You don't.

You never have.

You never will.

You have only your monumentally massive ego telling you that if someone disagrees with your baseless opinions then they "must" be disagreeing with the creator of the entire universe.

Actually it's not legally actionable, at least not in the US. It's just called freedom of speech. So if someone is "slandering" God in your opinion then it's up to God to put a plea into the courts.

Somehow I don't think it'll bother.(shrug)

We're not afraid of your mental illness. If you had awareness at the world with billions of people on it, your mind would explode with all the blasphemy happening right now each second.

Atheism seems like "a Catholic girls school",
too much absolutism in your thinking
and Not enough skepticism?
Question atheism
