I suppose that’s one way of trying to trick atheists you can claim to your god when you meet him that you were giving it to them twice as hard and so deserve extra “do good in the name of god” points ::><::
Assume all you want. It makes no difference if you believe that I'm one person or many. I know my lighting fast wit makes it looks like I am many people.

I don't see how posting under two or more name accomplishes anything.
Why would? What's the advantage?
Sorry I don't get it.

Well enough on that let's get to atheist bashing, now that's fun!!

2.3% what a joke your religion is!

You claim all humans are born atheist.
Ok that means at one time you had 100% of the human population. The current percentage of the world population is at 2.3%.

That means that 97.7% of your congregation has left your faith!!

WTF is wrong with you guys?
97.7%!!!!!!!
Do you realize how many people that is?

Man your not just losing them at that rate there running from you! LMFAO

What wit? I must agree with VCP, you suffer delusions

If you were not posting under another sock and you were not posting under Langoliers then you werent here and so Sceptic was pointing out fact. Basically you lied.

.

Where did you get your 2.3% from? Another christian lie? You do realise that lying does the decline of you faith no favours dont you?

Take the US first - A 2004 BBC poll showed the number of people in the US who don't believe in a god to be about 9%. The most recent ARIS report, released March 9, 2009, found in 2008, 34.2 million Americans (15.0%) claim no religion. According to Yahoo News 19% American public now spurns organised religion in favour of a nondefined scepticism about faith. The Washington Post says -The Global Index of Religiosity and Atheism, found that the number of Americans who say they are religious dropped from 73 percent in 2005 to 60 percent.

Now combine the US with the rest of the world so you cant forget Hindu, Buddhism, Sikhism, Shinto, Bahai and the hundreds of other non abrahamic faiths that have no belief in the abrahamic god

World wide there are around 18% of people who consider that they are not religious and that number is increasing plus 31% who have no belief on the abrahamic god. Thats 49% who have no belief in your god.

The 2.1 billion christians in the world (approx 33% and not 97.7%) comprise of over 38000 different squabbling sects and more than 60% of them are lying about it because they dont believe in god but just follow a tradition.

World wide christianity has lost 8% of its following between 2000 and 2005

Islam is the only abrahamic faith that is increasing, the decline of christianity is outstripping its growth so as a whole faith in your god is going down the pan

What a joke your lying christianity is and what a joke you are.

.

Indoctrination is a particularly insidious thing yet you seem to revel in it.

.

WTF is wrong with deliberately ignorant morons like you? Are you really that delusional? of course you are, you dream of incorrect assumption about 97.7% or is it 82% or is it 51% or is it 33% or is or is it 13.8% are all godbothering christians. See how you figures can be knocked down as lies when you include facts.

.

BTW - According to the social attitudes survey in Europe in 2008the number of non religious people surpassed the number of christians for the first time in 1300 years

LET THERE BE LIGHT, AND THERE WAS LIGHT

It has been an a "tohu vavohu" among many questioners, especially Christians, even many Jews, to come up with an explanation for that kind of light in Genesis 1:3 wen the sun, which gives light by day was created only on the 4th day of creation. The embarrassment is that at both, Atheists laugh. And not because they know any better in terms of an adequate answer, but for two other reasons: First, because they look for answer only in Science; and of course it is not there but in Theology. And in Theology, they laugh at us for they think that we are all speaking about an anthropomorphic god, which, as I don't blame them: It indeed never existed.

But what light is indeed the Torah writer referring to when he reports of God as declaring, "Let there be light?"

Since before the creation of the universe it was already in the designs of God to provide for salvation of Mankind a People whom salvation would come from, in the words of Jesus himself in John 4:22, that salvation comes from the Jews.

When for good, the Assyrians removed Israel from existence by replacing the Northern population of the Galilee with Gentiles, and after the Jews or Southern pupulation was taken for an temporary exile of 70 years in Babylon, and the time had arrived for their return to the Land of Israel, Prophet Isaiah said that the people who walked in darkness, he meant the Gentiles in Galilee, had seen a great light as the Jewish People was returning to the Land of Israel.(Isa. 9:2)

Then, later, he confirms that light of Genesis 1:3 when he explained that Israel had been assigned as light to the nations.(Isa. 42:6) But the light was to remain divided from the darkness, so that both should exist in the same world; although, in the language of the Essenes, there would always be a conflict between the children of Light and the children of darkness. Between Jews and Gentiles. Just as light cannot coexist together with darkness. Wheneverlight is come, dakness is gone.

Jesus was aware of this Light as he delivered his famous Sermon of the Mount to a crowd of Jews, when he said to them: "You are the Light of the world." (Mat. 5:14) The reason why he said "you are" and not "you have" is that what one has, it can be taken away, but what one is, he is no matter what. Individually, we have the light the world needs to know God. But as a People, we are that light of Genesis 1:3, which the world needs for salvation.

Study: Atheists Have Lowest 'Retention Rate' Compared to Religious Groups

Only about 30 percent of those who grow up in an atheist household remain atheists as adults. This "retention rate" was the lowest among the 20 separate categories in the study.

There were 1,387 atheists (weighted) in the survey. Four-hundred thirty-two weighted respondents said they were raised atheist. Of those, 131 self-identified as atheist.

Continued:

Gray also noted that, "of those raised as atheists, 30% are now affiliated with a Protestant denomination, 10% are Catholic, 2% are Jewish, 1% are Mormon, and 1% are Pagan."

Jehovah's Witness, congregationalist and holiness churches had the next lowest retention rates at 37 percent, 37 percent and 32 percent, respectively. Thirty-eight percent of those who grew up with no particular religious faith or belief system remained that way.

Hindus had the highest retention rate at 84 percent, followed by Jews (76 percent), Muslims (76 percent), Greek Orthodox (73 percent), Mormons (70 percent) and Catholics (68 percent).

Baptists had the highest retention rate of the Protestant Christian categories at 60 percent, followed by Lutheran (59 percent) and Pentecostal (50 percent).

“Atheists abandon their beliefs more often than people in other religious groups, study finds”

A new study has found that people raised in an atheist home abandon those beliefs as adults more often than people raised with other religious belief systems, putting atheism at a 30 percent retention rate. Conclusions and interpretations of the study are that atheists are more often "made" as adults rather than "raised." The highest retention rates are in the Hindu faith, which holds onto about 84 percent of adherents.

Those who grow up in an atheist household are least likely to maintain their beliefs about religion as adults, according to a study by Georgetown University's Center for Applied Research in the Apostolate (CARA).

Only about 30 percent of those who grow up in an atheist household remain atheists as adults. This "retention rate" was the lowest among the 20 separate categories in the study.

There were 1,387 atheists (weighted) in the survey. Four-hundred thirty-two weighted respondents said they were raised atheist. Of those, 131 self-identified as atheist.

Why would I hate Jews? I dislike liars, whatever their belief, I hate terrorists, murderers and paedophiles, liars are not quite in the same category, but not far off. Just because you are Jewish does not make you a liar, what makes you a lair is your personality.

You can of course claim the religion card or the race card or any card you like, it makes no difference to fact that you have been caught lying and were challenged on the lie. For which you refuse even to acknowledge your lies and have now tried five different excuses to offload your guilt.

If truth is anathema to your debating method of :-
* see it your way or your opponent is using ad hominems,(most common)
* or you claim hyperbolism
* or you post sexist comments
* or offer sarcasm (something you are not suited to)
* or you claim racial or religious hatred
Then we can only assume that nine persons in your case is a lie too. Or perhaps you lied to them as you lie to everyone on topix in which case we are not talking religious conversion here but fraudulent abduction.

I have never seen anyone wriggle as much as you in the face of facts, you may think it clever but I can assure you most people can see right through you. You dont like the facts of the matter then maybe you should have thought about that before LYING or at least been man enough to accept those facts.

I still see no link to your source, your word is not enough however I have done the job for you, here are some links that actually quote the Encyclopaedia Britannica

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Demographics_of_...
1995 survey attributed to the Encyclopdia Britannica indicates that the non-religious are about 14.7% Another survey attributed to Britannica shows the population of atheists at around 2.4% of the world's population

Are you confused yet?

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Atheism
A 2005 survey published in Encyclopdia Britannica found that the non-religious made up about 11.9% of the world's population, and atheists about 2.3%. This figure did not include those who follow atheistic religions, such as some Buddhists.[

Nor other non religious and believers in other deities to Abrahamic god, note that there are over 3700 other deities

More confusion?

So you see quoting figures out of context is not really the way forward is it? it just means that you are quoting figures out of context and makes you look silly(er)

And then making up other figures (97.7%) assuming that your out of context 2.3% means that everyone else thinks you way is just pathetic

What fact? That 2.3% are declared atheist according to one survey? 14.09% are non religious, 13.26% are Hindu, 5.84% are Buddhist, 12.48% belong to none abrahamic religions

However other surveys say different

http://www.patheos.com/blogs/friendlyatheist/...

What study? A study carried out by on behalf of christian organisation by a committed christian on such a small sample is not a valid study.

Atheism is growing (particularly in America), Islam is growing, agnosticism is growing, wicca is growing, the pagan religions are growing again. In fact the only faith that I know to be shrinking is christianity

<quoted text>I still see no link to your source, your word is not enough however I have done the job for you, here are some links that actually quote the Encyclopaedia Britannica

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Demographics_of_...
1995 survey attributed to the Encyclopædia Britannica indicates that the non-religious are about 14.7%… Another survey attributed to Britannica shows the population of atheists at around 2.4% of the world's population

Are you confused yet?

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Atheism
A 2005 survey published in Encyclopædia Britannica found that the non-religious made up about 11.9% of the world's population, and atheists about 2.3%. This figure did not include those who follow atheistic religions, such as some Buddhists.[

Nor other non religious and believers in other deities to Abrahamic god, note that there are over 3700 other deities

More confusion?

So you see quoting figures out of context is not really the way forward is it? it just means that you are quoting figures out of context and makes you look silly(er)

And then making up other figures (97.7%) assuming that your out of context 2.3% means that everyone else thinks you way is just pathetic
Your nuts!!!

You post that atheist make up 2.3% of the world population then claim it was taken out of context.

Your post "atheists about 2.3%."
Non believers and the others are no atheist I know you wish you had better number so you try and draw as many other into your clan. But that's just a lie. It says atheist 2.3% and that is about where it's at. I don't include all theist into Christianity.

Fact atheist claim everyone is born atheist. So atheist claim 100% of the human population was at one time atheist.

Fact the percentage of the population is at or around 2.3% today.
That would mean you have list 97.7% of you congregation. That is a very very very high rate of lose.

However other surveys say different
The BSA survey shows that over Europe the percentage of atheists varies between 1% in the most religious (and smaller/least inhabited countries to 33%
