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.

Also.

Does this rather incorrect and hateful response of yours indicate that you support his active hatred towards the transgendered and islamic community?

Go back and actually read my posts before stamping your "Christian" mark on me.
I'm AGAINST chistianity you utter moron. I'm an agnostic leaning towards athiest.
My post was about transphobia. Learn to read.
I take advice from no deity.
Gods do not exist.
Religion is defined as organized superstition.

Meeting for the first time in March 1985, the Jesus Seminar has periodically brought together dozens of university scholars and gospel specialists representing every shade of Christian thought, plus a few Jews and atheists.

In their initial study, the scholars collected more than 1500 versions of approximately 500 Jesus parables, aphorisms, dialogues, and stories written during the first 300 years of Christianity.
After 6 years of debate and reflection the consensus was that 82% of the words attributed to Jesus were fake.

In phase two, between 1991 and 1996, the Jesus Seminar considered 387 versions of 176 'Jesus events'. Their conclusion: 84% of the activities attributed to Jesus were bogus.

In contrast, Caesar's words and deeds are fully documented by multiple witnesses.

Caesar was an eyewitness to many of the events he describes in his commentaries. He wrote not for posterity but to have an immediate impact on the power players in Rome as he schemed to advance his own career.

The elapsed time between the wars and Caesar's own writing was a matter of months or at most a few years.

In contrast, the elapsed time between the gospel reports and the supposed events that they describe is at least 40 years for 'Mark' and 60-70 years for the other three Gospels.

And just who was witness to that fabulous nativity, 30-odd years before the grande finale?
At the most generous understanding,'Luke' and 'Matthew' were recording hearsay testimony a century after angels, shepherds and wise men went calling.

The unembellished truth is that the gospel accounts were written by eyewitnesses to nothing but their own skills of fabrication.

For good reason, based on spatial and temporal proximity alone, historians give more credence to Caesar's commentaries than to the gospels, no matter how prolifically they were copied

Oh ignorance is so rife on this forum...
I guess he is. He also claims that I sent him nasty messages and yet he has not proven anything when asked to show evidence. Don't waste your time with that person.

You have a chip on your shoulder because you are actively against religious extremism and through your crusade against extremists you've ended up hating anyone who isn't a hard-core athiest.

Got it.
Here is the funny thing, he admitted that he is married to a Catholic woman. I bet that makes an interesting marriage being that she is theist.

Yep, that's the guy you are taking advice from.
And now you have skeptic who I believe is Givethemliberty. This person wishes to destroy all theists by using the "Final Solution." I guess he based his ideas from Hitler. As far as the Dinosaur and Jesus thing, he tells every theist that. I see him as immature.

You lash out at my opposition to child brides? Seriously?

And that means I have a chip on my shoulder?

If someone wanting to protect children against such a barbaric practice is something you work against you are no better than those subhuman animals yourself.

Of all the comments for you to make your 2 penny pointless....

The concept of theists married to atheists is difficult for you to comprehend?

Seriously?

Anyways still waiting for you to answer my questions. It seems you are having trouble with that.

LOL Dream on, bubba.
“For the scientist who has lived by his faith in the power of reason, the story ends like a bad dream. He has scaled the mountains of ignorance, he is about to conquer the highest peak; as he pulls himself over the final rock, he is greeted by a band of theologians who have been sitting there for centuries”
-- Robert Jastrow, American astronomer, physicist and cosmologist, Noble Laureate, and agnostic, from his book, "God and the Astronomers" ( p. 107)
Sorry bubba, that's not an alternitive to the theory of evolution. So what do you have to offer science other than quotes that replaces the TOE?

That's why I told you to get into a biology class. It's the framework theory. Go argue with a biologist about it. I'm guessing you haven't found anything to replace it yet so I will file your opinion under not worth a sh!t. Get it?

All the wishful thinking in the world isn't going to turn your pile of ideas, speculations, claims, hypothesis etc into something that can pass the test of a REAL scientific theory until somebody actually writes one, then has it published and peer reviewed. How could a science genius like yourself not know that very basic fact?
