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.

You come here acting like all the other religitards, then you try to go into philosoraptor mode, trying to emulate what your icon represents.
It doesn't fit, you aren't very good at it, and trolling Topix isn't successful when you're mimicking the same ploy as everyone else.

Carry on with your lack-of points.

So you're saying that people back then, in the 19th century, had these headsets?
You are horrible at discussion.

Because that's what man-made items are; unnatural.
The fact that people have an imagination and are able to come up with new things doesn't prove your god exists.

a theory and a scientific theory are two different things. The way you see things is quite stupid really.

As usual you notice these unregistered theists come running in here like suicide posters.

They come in here dropping bombs of ignorance, are unable to debate with reason, blow themselves up in humiliation and change screen names.

Fundamentalists: believe 2+2 =5 because It Is Written. Somewhere. They have a lot of trouble on their tax returns.

"Moderate" believers: live their lives on the basis that 2+2=4. but go regularly to church to be told that 2+2 once made 5, or will one day make 5, or in a very real and spiritual sense should make 5.

"Moderate" atheists: know that 2+2 =4 but think it impolite to say so too loudly as people who think 2+2=5 might be offended.

"Militant" atheists: "Oh for pity's sake. HERE. Two pebbles. Two more pebbles. FOUR pebbles. What is WRONG with you people?"

There's one thing that is slightly off about that though.
The "militant atheist" example you gave goes with the moderate atheist.
For if the fundamentalist were to tell you that heaven is above the clouds, and no space, it would just be pointing out how deluded one is.

There's a difference between letting someone believe in a god or not, and letting someone believe that if they touch fire, they'll freeze.

What a waste of a perfectly good Bible. He could have used it as toilet paper or burned it in the fireplace to keep warm.

There's no such thing as a "fundamentalist atheist."
For atheism is not a religion.

You really are horrible at making any valid points.
