Agreed. They are rude, uppity and impertinent. First they tell me that he loves me. Then they tell me that God hates me and will send me to hell
1-because I inherited original sin
2-because I am a fag.
To give an example of Christian rudeness. Two Lesbians came on the train I was taking last week. They sat down together and were talking and giggling. It was clear that they were a couple. Some Godbot knowing their orientation, had the temerity to start preaching shyt and handing them a pamphlet. The Lesbian rightfully threw the garbage out and cursed out the Godbot.
Good for her! It's high time to stand up to these ugly, hate-spewing religious thugs.

Back in the day (of smoking), another good response to religious tracts? Is to roll it up with tobacco inside, light it up, and blow the smoke into their faces ...

Agree with the first bit. There is no evidence that the old testament existed before 500 BCE, which kinda blows the Christian claims out of the water.
Indeed it does.

I've seen several excellent analyses of the OT, showing how it could not have existed prior to 500BCE.

It's also clear it was deliberately written to >>seem<< older than it really is. The writers were the would-be "priest class", who had a clear agenda to pad their own nests.

As is the case with ALL self-proclaimed "religious leaders", they want an easy road to power, wealth and privilege.

... ugg.

God has both male and female sex organs?
Of course!

But the real question?

What happened to God's Shyt?

I mean-- it's >>divine<< shyt, right? So it would smell like flowers or something, but more to the point, it would NOT decay or go away.

God-shyt would naturally be immortal--forever.

Since, according to the label? God existed forever?

Then there >>must<< be a pile of INFINITE SHYT somewhere or other....!

Where is it? What does god DO with all that shyt?

Inquiring Minds want to KNOW!

I have yet to see one who's even mildly curious about why atheism exists.
Therefore we entertain ourselves and have fun at their expense. ;)
It's easy to adopt a superior attitude when this is based entirely on scientific facts every day observations and rationality.
The Internet will become the Achilles' heel for these people... There is entirely too much knowledge and they can't escape it forever.

No, it isn't.

What? You want PROOF that the bible, LITERALLY damages your brain?

Okay.

Here it is: The SUM of ALL YOUR POSTS.

They prove, BEYOND A DOUBT, that the bible causes brain-damage.

There.

Thanks for playing.

1) I will gladly go to your god's hell, rather than have to spend ONE DAY, in YOUR company in "heaven".

2) Telling an atheist he or she is going to hell?

Is EXACTLY the same as telling a little kid, if he doesn't eat all his Lucky Charms, he won't get a Leprechaun.

I have to disagree. All of the theists I know personally are quite honest and, as long as religion is avoided, quite normal and easy to deal with. Theism isn't a disease. It's just an incorrect belief, albeit a pervasive one, but one that doesn't affect daily life all that much. Most people aren't as religious as all that. They believe in a half-hearted way (unless one foolishly challenges them on it), but it doesn't affect they way they navigate life.
NS? You are a veritable saint-- and no, I do not mean to be insulting when I call you "saintly".

:D

You have a very good way of looking at people, one that more folk should try to emulate, I'd think.

Kudos, mate! I'll toast your attitude, the next time I'm having one.

Shame on you liars of decent honest society.
There is no basis for morality without God and he does not need to lie, the truth is strange enough. Truth is stranger than fiction. Blessed are all those who have hoped in and waited for him.

I agree, and you will see that there is nothing in my post that indicates I would worship said god.
I of course do like my variation of Pascal's Wager. Since there are thousands of possible deities your odds of picking the right one is extremely small. One deity is as likely as another. So if you are going to believe or worship a deity it should be one that merits worship and second it should have the best possible heaven. Now I do have a personal dislike of loud noises so becoming a suicide bomber and trying to get my 40 some virgins that way is not going to happen. Second who wants virgins? Can you imagine getting stuck with 40 or however many totally inept lovers?
And they couldn't really appreciate how good you are compared to others if you're the only lover they've ever had.

No, the correct god to believe in is the Flying Spaghetti Monster. With heaven containing a beer volcano and a stripper factory a good time is guaranteed for all.
I have yet to see one of our theists bring up a good reason not to believe and possibly worship the FSM. Heck, all it takes is a nice dinner of Spaghetti and Meatballs on a Friday night.

Exactly!
The Flying Speghetti Monster is a god who is actually WORTHY of respect.
In contrast to all the others....
... well.... except for Thor.
I mean... hammer? Lightning-bolts? Whether you like Thor or no? You so gotta respect the hammer and lightning...!
Go Thor!
And it's Thor's day tomorrow.

So, why will god wait until it's too late to really let us know he exists?

Yet if he is "all-knowing" then it is not possible in any way whatsoever to surprise him. He already knows the outcome of each and every one of your decisions before you were even born. Thus "free-will" is an illusion. As pointed out, one of the numerous paradoxes of theism. So best to simply say "I have faith" and leave it at that, rather than have the details of your baseless theological opinions brought down to Earth and examined where they get eviscerated by their own axioms.
What you describe is not a paradox of "theism".

It might be a paradox of certain religious views, to those who do not understand that foreknowledge and free will are not mutually exclusive.

And no, you won't get that, either.

So many fundies believe. That's why they invented prayer. And allegedly God's hippy son was able to change it too by telling him to chill out and stop being a complete d ck like he was in the old days while J came down saying "Peace, man!". But then God's due to change his mind and and become a total ahole again later.
<quoted text>
Bottom line, not if this God of yours exists. In fact even God can't even do that. As apparently it's already set in stone because of this old book that says donkeys and lizards talk.
"Fundies" didn't invent prayer.

All these posts - and you haven't been accurate on one thing.

<quoted text>I agree with Mlodonow. The arguments for and against the existence of the various gods, angels, demons, and demigods that people believe in against all reason lie outside of the realm of science, more the stuff of history, philosophy and the like. That's why I read with interest, but rarely weigh in on the discussions that focus on science that are often beyond the level at which I have anything useful to contribute.
We all have our strengths and weaknesses. Mine seems to be an ability to spot logical flaws and to evaluate statistical stuff. I'm not sure what yours is--perhaps to force more knowledgeable people to write in greater detail and with more precision than they would without the need to counter your usually flawed but often complex assertions. Even if I rarely agree with you, I have to say that your relentlessness definitely bring out the best in your adversaries.
That arrogant and snotty reply is received with the same lack of respect with which it is offered.

If you had an ability to spot logical flaws, and you do not, you would be falling on my side of these arguments against things like the possibility of real infinite quantities, a beginningless universe, and the self-serving dilution of terms of debate like "atheism".

If you run across someone "more knowledgeable" than me on this thread of misfits, goofballs, and narcissists, point him out to me. Please.

Ronald Reagan was the first time this nation became a debtor nation.
Alexander Hamilton, America’s first secretary of the Treasury, issued the first U.S. Treasury bonds on Sept. 18, 1789. The Continental Congress had borrowed money from overseas to help finance the Revolutionary War and could not pay back its loans. It defaulted on maturing debt in 1786 and couldn’t pay the 625 soldiers of the U.S. Army in 1787. By the time the Constitution went into effect on March 4, 1789, the United States owed $75 million.
That debt would be roughly $900 billion in today’s dollars and was 30 percent of gross domestic product in 1789.

The only debt-free year in American history was 1835.

Congratulations, EmptyTheJohn.

You were only about 200 years off.

For you libs, that's very good work.
