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.

Ah ah ah, the one claiming a statement is true first must first provide their own evidence. That's the way discussion works; you make a claim, you back it up.
Ok lets look again "true first must first provide" WOW great English once again form the fool.

Neither "god" nor "the bible" should be capitalized, that is the way the English language works.
Again with the Alzheimer's; you're the one that complained that people don't capitalize "god."
'God' is a title, the capitalised version 'God' is reserved for the only true God.'Bible' is the name of a collection of books, it is a proper noun and is there for capitalised. Come on I expected more form you.

There is no evidence for god, so there is no reason to even entertain the idea that he is real.

The buy-bull says that night and day existed before there was a sun, and that plants were growing before there was a sun.

Many have been made up by men, but alas the God of the Bible has not been. He created man kind, man kind went wrong them ma kind turned away from the true God and made false gods.

Why would you not 'entertain the idea that He is real' when He is the creator of all, even you.

I am sure the buy-bull says nothing at all as I doubt if it exists.

As for your line about creation, day and night are measurements of time the sun and moon were placed there to show us that time, time still exists with out the indicators like clocks the sun and moon do not create time.

Yes God created the plants before the heat of the sun warmed the earth, so what, He chose to do it that way and he did.

Let's start with the "Facts" your Bible Claims;
1. God is omnipotent
2. God is omniscient
3. God is omnipresent
4. God has a message for all people.

That's what your bible claims right?

OK, so why couldn't your God write down this message himself or otherwise leave a message where all can find it?
There are only a few possibilities to consider;

1. He didn't know how.=> He's not God.
2. He wasn't powerful enough.=> He's not God.
3. He did but someone hid it.=> God doesn't know where it is, could not have known it would be hidden => He's not God.
4. He did but someone destroyed it.=> God didn't know that would happen and could not prevent it => He's not God.
5. He did but man is too limited to understand the message => God didn't make his creatures so they would understand his message AND he didn't write his message so his creatures could understand it => He's not God.
6. God doesn't really have a message for all humans => The bible is completely wrong and does not describe God properly i.e. The God described in the bible does not exist.

There, ONCE AGAIN!! Solid Proof the God described in the Bible does not exist.

Just asserting he exists isn't proof of squat. Give me some real evidence.

Say it out loud. Buy-bull.

BS. The story clearly says there were light and dark before the sun was created, and there were evening and morning the first day, before the sun was created. Genesis 1:3-5 or thereabouts.
It's clear they didn't know that evening and morning were caused by a point on the earth rotating away from and towards the sun. It's clear they didn't know that moon light was just a reflection of sun light.

No, that just shows that the Bronze Age goat herders that wrote the story were ignorant. They didn't know the sun provided the heat and light needed for plant growth. They thought the sun just "ruled" the day. They didn't know that the earth would be around 0 Kelvin without the sun, and that plants wouldn't last for a second under that condition.
Their ignorance was understandable.
What about yours?

So what you're saying is you can't back up your claims. Good, we know you're lying when you say it's true.

I have read this rubbish from you before you have used it so many time and so many people have pointed out the flaw in you logic, I don’t really know if I should do so as so many already have.

I will repeat what someone else has already told you;
It is recorded in the Torah that God Himself did write on the stone commandment tables. So your entire thing falls over at that point.
Secondly there are more possible statements in your logic; you have chosen to only use a few.

Now answer me this in a court of law do the judge, the lawyers, the witnesses and the jury all write down their own words, or is there a scribe to do it for them. The fact that a scribe does it does not disprove the existence of the judge, the lawyers, the witnesses and the jury. Again proof that you logic is flawed.
The fact that God chose to interact with mankind through a mediator does not make him any less God.

I am especially proud of my volunteer work and donations to the humanist cause. Every year I go to the Philippines and spend thousands on food,water, clothing and medicine for the needy there. After a horrific typhoon and flooding there I was there amongst others 14 hours a day handing out supplies, giving life saving injections and treatments to those who lost their home. I stood and watched as homeless children lined up easily 3 miles deep for a package of crackers sandwich fruit and bottle of water. Unwanted children who were born because the Christian ran theocracy light government makes it nearly impossible for a woman to obtain birth control. My wife is in pre-med classes and wants to practice medicine there free to help those poor children. Here in the states I collect donations for running in marathons with the money going to children's charities and cancer or HIV awareness programs.
I have seen first hand time and time again the damage and heart breaking situations brought on by theists. The same theists who come crawling to us to help fix their mess! Oh but while we are fixing it are we thanked? Nope. We barely get the figurative broom in hand and they are shrieking at us for not believing in their imaginary friend.
Honor? I guess it is a relative term. The dozen of urban low income students I assist for free with their biology and pharmaceutical homework at two different colleges locally would probably say good ole KJ is an alright dude.
Now if coming on topix and giving the theists a little taste of backbone, the theists who try to intimidate and silence non believers because they think we should all be meek and humble and tolerate their abuse and repeated logical fallacies makes me vile, Without reason, Disrespectful, In someone's opinion? So be it, hmmm I will chuckle about how vile And disrespectful I am Friday at U of L for the 6 hours I am assisting the students there as a volunteer. Or perhaps this summer as I am passing out thousands of dollars worth of free medicine and other essentials trying to save some more homeless from dying. Yes I was walking by a group of people there and they were huddled together praying loudly and crying. I looked in and a young girl was on the ground dying of dehydration. Instead of getting her water and rushing her to the hospital they stood there holding hands and praying! I grabbed my cell phone and called for an ambulance and started trying to get her to drink. Slowly she sipped the water as the praying continued. The ambulance came after almost an hour and reluctantly took her to the hospital, the paramedic said she was good as dead and best leave it in the hands of Jesus same thing the crowd thought. She died 18 hours later. They didn't even know her name and couldn't figure it out.
I guess I'll somehow deal with being called disrespectful.
