Why, when people are arguing that we should not 'bow to religion', are we creating new rules for another religion that of atheism? The definition of a religion or faith is a belief in the existence or non-existence of God in the absolute absence of corroborative scientific evidence.

Think about what you just said.

Imagine you are God, you send a messanger, to tell a select few, that people must follow him, or face an eternity of torture in a lake of fire. Your messanger refuses to provide any future civilizations evidence of his existence, other than word of mouth.

Many of these non- believers will one day come to you, who have led full, moral lives. You are then going to say, sorry, I know I left no address to come find me, nor one little shred of evidence of my existence. I know you were a good person, better than alot of my followers, but, too bad for you, you get what you don't deserve. Bye.

How is any of this story a moral represention of how you, me, or society, would treat someone, simply because they don't know you or I exist?

Thankfully, because of no evidence, I need not worry about this extremely evil, immoral character you call, God.
Indeed... the most immoral human on earth?

Is still morally superior to the christian god.

By simple fact that humans are limited to human-level activities, if nothing else.

Well... Satan is just an ugly fairy tale used to frighten stupid people.

So in a way, Satan couldn't kill anyone.

But you Genuine Christholes™? You people have killed countless folk down through history, in the name of your horrid beliefs.

Well, of course.
In truth? The whole "free will" is bogus anyway-- it's not actually in the bible at all, anywhere.
It is a fabricated concept made to try to excuse the problem of god-preventable evil in the world.
And it simply does not fly.
My religion professor used to ask why does not god just use his power to rid us of evil. The godbots always used to claim free will. Hiss response was to ask about the free will of murdered babies or disabled people.
Their response. We can't understand the purpose of the divine dad.

Which is exactly not-a-response-- but rather an excuse.

Indeed. You could easily see-- if a large fraction of their population followed those rules, would quickly gain a reputation as liars, con men and thieves.

Well... by reducing gentiles to non-human status? It's easy to do.

That is the classic method by which nearly all religion works:

Them versus Us.

And they use various methods to reduce Them to less-than-human status.

Even among the primitive cultures you see this: their word for themselves usually means "people", whereas their word for anyone **not** in their group, means "not-people" in one or more ways. Some even went so far as to call them "animals-who-speak". Not-people in other words.

Sadly, that method works all too well...

He's just another Kristian Kowardly Killer-wannabe.
(see what I did there? <heh>)

His cowardice is evidenced by his deliberate anonymity, and his admission he stole time & computer use from his work.

He even uses a proxy to spoof his **real** location-- that's how much of a coward he is.

It's kinda sad to witness such a failed person like that, though.

I do see, and agree.

BTW: The Badger nearly fell out laughing at your face book page last night. The "not recognizing others" thingy.

It's his few minutes. Why does it irk you so?

What does not registering say about you? How many postings a day for you? And why do none of yours, make any sense or contain any truth?

..... but the real question is why would you invest in a device that cannot display the "Reply" buttton?
