Aug 27, 2012 Full story: News24 14,477

Please note that for this article "Atheism" also includes agnostics, deists, pagans, wiccans... in other words non-religious.

You will notice this is a statement of fact. And to be fact it is supported by evidence (see references below). Now you can have "faith" that this is not true, but by the very definition of faith, that is just wishful thinking. Full Story

And now they call democrats anti semite. Isn't that just some of the funniest chit you ever heard of?
Round n round they weave their web of lies. They are running out of time just printing more money.

I get unalienable rights you don't.
Fairly simple.
Humans are apes. All Humans are apes. That's just taxonomy, it's a fact.

You have no evidence your creator exists. Therefore if you are looking for him to "bestow" something, you are SOL.

The rest of us can claim our rights and our heritage as humans evolved from an ape like ancestor.... Well except the Christians, they don't evolve.

WHY DID HITLER NOT RESIGN FROM THE CHURCH AND STOP PAYING CHURCH TAXES??? EVERY SERVIOUS SCHOLAR KNOWS HITLER WAS A COMMITTED CHRISTIAN!!! There is a painting of Hitler as a Christian Knight!!
GERMAN CITIZENS PAY A TAX TO THE CHURCH--A SIGNIFICANT BURDEN
Hitler had constant arguments over paying taxes on his book royalty and other income. However, there was a simple way for Hitler to save money, by sending a signed declaration to the church that he was no longer a believer and no longer a member of the church. But Hitler never did that. To the day Hitler died, he was paying his church taxes and was a Christian and member of the church. Hitler was a committed Christian. Christianity is consistent with fascism. Eat your heart out!!!
And he painted my avatar ... very Christian looking, isn't it?

You are a living example and testament that something does indeed exist. You are the proof, just selfish and a narcissist. Just because one does not believe, it should not allow them to make a mockery of.

Yes, it should! Blasphemy is a victimless crime and therefore a mockery unto itself.

If that was the case then we would still be under the rule of the UK. And we fought a war to make it binding.
No the Declaration of Independence is very much binding.
Nope. It was nerely a big F you to King George. Nothing more. The constitution is what gives you your rights in this country. And there is nothing christian or religious in the document.

The facts presented to you concerning religious scientific discovery and involvment in nurturing scientific thought and the scientific revolution are widley held matters of fact.
Your contention that it was Christians who burned the Library at Alexandria on the other hand is pure speculation with no supporting evidence and is not widley held or supoorted.
Please dont support your contentions by pointing to anti-religious bigotry and works considered marginal.
Which fire? There were many fires.

http://www.straightdope.com/columns/read/2233...

As Christians gained dominance in the region, they felt uncomfortable with pagan temples full of pagan documents. In 391 AD, Theophilus, the patriarch of Alexandria, urged a mob to destroy the temple at Serapis, presumably at the same time destroying whatever books were left in the daughter library. This was hailed as a great victory of the Christians over the pagans.

The final fire was in 645 AD, when the Moslem caliph Omar conquered Egypt. The story is that Omar was asked what to do about the books in the library, and gave the reply: "If the books agree with the Koran, they are not necessary. If they disagree, they are not desired. Therefore, destroy them." According to tradition, the scrolls were used as fuel to provide hot water for the soldiers' baths for six months.

.... It seems the Moslems did the final job.

NO argument here. Especially since U.N. officials are appointed not elected not that it matters if they were. F'n world leaders and their power struggles would be pointless if the people stopped listening. Let the power hungry bastards fight their own battles.

Unlike you, I reference any number of scientific studies, speak scientific jargon (such as the word theory, which you consistently fail at), understand what mainstream science is like and know what theories frame each major discipline of science.

You, for example, are a science denier. You openly lie about evolution - all the time.

Evolution is the framework theory of all biological science.

That you don't know or understand that (because you don't know what theory is and does for a discipline of knowledge) demonstrates you know nothing about science.

There is no lie in the above. All of that is quite true.

You're welcome to explain what a theory is, and what a framework theory does for a discipline, if you'd like to prove you know something about science.

But I know you won't. You've resorted to calling me liar because you have failed to defend your miserable, impoverished understanding of science. That's not surprising. You're a creationist - and, by definition, a science denier.

He is sharp as a marble. Hey hiding am I the only one who gets a kick out of how all the Christians in here are blatantly violating the commands of their own bible and messiah? They by purposely coming to the atheism threads and letting it dominate so much of their time are associating purposely with non believers. The bible in several accounts explicitly forbids doing this. Jesus and Paul especially forbade this in no uncertain terms, unless you were actively trying to convert them but even then you kept interaction to a minimum. I still remember the old baptist preacher going into long angry tirades against doing this saying even if you could out debate a non believer they will be saying things against Christ that can and will eventually sink into your head and how that poison can linger for years like an unnoticed cancer. So instead spend your time with your fellow loving Christians and stray far away from the non believers.

We obviously have many Christians who have been to the proof of god websites or watched Eric Hovind flail at debating atheists and they think, hey I can do this!

We from just this forum have turned at least one soon to be minister away from his calling to Christ and more to come:)
