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.

Sorry, I go for news sites like The Gazette.
Unbiased and informative.
Sometimes I like what I read, sometimes I don't.

I also tend to go with statistics from the APA, FBI, and so on.

Look, Mr. Wahhabi, Keep your despotic religious bullshit in the mind control shit-hole country you are posting from. We have enough problems with christian creationist fruitcakes as it is,without us pandering to your toxic garbage.
When you have so many "nuts"....what is one more.

But seeing your post, I think it was for "your kind" of people that Dale Carnegie wrote his famous book "How to win friends and friendship".

You would make the "ideal" model for that book.

You have all the basic ingradients, foul mouth, arrogance, stupidity and no consideration for feeling of others!!

They always make the claim that carbon dating is false. Actually it is the other way around. Carbon dating proves their beliefs to be false.

The Bible is fact, mixed with legend, mixed with propaganda, mixed with superstition, mixed with poor philosophy, etc. It has some historically accurate facts. It also has a lot of historically inaccurate claims.
You got that right....I might just add "the names which appear on Title page, have no connection with the "real authors" of the book.

For Example: First five books of OT were not written by Moses.

Samuel-1 and Samuel-2 were not written by Samuel.

Book of Psalms was not written by David..

And so on

These are anonymous books which "faith" has turned into scripture.

Of course because those people likely never existed. The Torah is nothing but a collection of oral campfire stories told by desert nomads. They were folk tales nothin more.

The Quran is foolish enough to say these things actually happened.

I have feelings for the millions of Men,Women and Children who are brainwashed and brutalized by your despotic religion. I even feel sympathy for the christians that have to live amongst such wahhabist savages.
You talk about friends,We see the results of Shia and Sunni friendship in the form of sectarian violence and the images of mangled corpses strewn about the streets in places like Pakistan and Syria.
How much tolerance,friendship and respect do the Saudis show towards christianity in that bastion of islamic enlightenment?

I suppose it would be difficult to make friends with someone who thinks I should be murdered for blasphemy. It could get a bit heated after a few pints of lager.

Exactly. We have enough killing over actual issues imagine how much better the world would be without killing for your imaginary friend?
