It was not an attempt at deflection at all. It was a reference to what Elaine said on an episode of Seinfeld. The reference has meaning in what was being said at the time, that it's all made up, which is sort of like your posts.

To bad they didn't work! Usually when pushed into religion it doesn't work. It takes a lot of commitment. The life of a Christian is hard. Look at history. Well good luck in life. Maybe one day! Why are all atheist so offensive an usually want to attack Christians?

Christian Religion is never superstition. By now we know about our REAL GOD; HE walked among us. 'Too bad it didn't work' says you, only you. It is whatever education you had that failed. OBVIOUSLY.BIG TIME.

Religion certainly is declining in the less retarded countries.
When I lived in Banbury, my favourite pub was an ex church.

The correct question to ask is, why haven't Christians corrected the bible and removed the passage attacking all atheists as fools?

Why has this not been removed after all these years?

Answer: you're mentally ill lying idiots with no sense of honesty whatsoever.

Exactly you didn't answer any of my questions just give me a question that has no real answer to. It's like talking to a child when it comes to atheist. Read the good book it is honest! Now go back and answer my questions.

The only question you need to concentrate on is "Where is the proof of god you and your mentally ill cult are lying to society about?"

Concentrate on answering the question your cult is so frightened of and you won't look like an idiot in this forum.

'proof of god'? and who are you to make such demand?'mentally ill cult'? WHAT are you intending to prove, yourself? Proof of God lives around you, with you. Take off your blinders and you'll see, you've got eyes, nose, teeth, tongue and everything that senses you are ALIVE. Imagine that! PROOF OF GOD? Proof of you comes first. Go at it.1216

The "culture war" is a religious right construct to gloss over the fact that they are being, as Alan Ginsburg put it, "run down by the drunken taxicabs of absolute reality."

Madeline McCann's parents are devout christians. They have asked people to pray to god for news of her whereabouts.

What sort of god won't say where Madeline until you pray to it?

What sort of god still won't say where Madeline is after all those prayers?

The only instance in the bible of the devil killing anyone, whereas the bible says your god is a moody genocidal bastard.
