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.

Tell me, bubba, have “they” developed any instruments that can detect love? What about compassion? How about mercy? Courage? Justice?
No?
According to your logic that means that since things like love, compassion, mercy, etc, are “100% undetectable” by any instruments they are therefore “nonexistent” and should be dismissed as just ”idiotic ideas”.
LOL
Emotions can be detected via brain scans. When certain emotions arise certain parts of the brain are activated.

As for the rest, they are abstract concepts and exist as nothing more than thoughts in people's heads. You can no more detect 'justice' than you can detect 'adventure'.

Where was he allegedly born? Bethlehem in Judea.
Why did Joe and Maz need to return to Bethlehem? The fictional Roman census.
So Joe and Maz returned to the town of Joe`s birth, so it`s safe to say Joe was a Judean.
"Many of the people of the land mityahadim became Yehudim(Judeans/Jews) because the fear of the Yehudim fell on them." ~Esther ch.2 vv. 5-6.
So what Esther is saying is that they changed their ethnicity?
The Book of Esther is a fiction written by the members of the "Synagogue of Satan", i.e. those who lied and called themselves Yehudim, but were not Yehudim,(Revelations 2:9; 3:9) kinda like the European Jews who called themselves Yehudim and stole Palestine from the real Yehudim circa 1940's.

Emotional responses like fear, anxiety, pleasure, etc. are "effects" which can be stimulated artificially and detected on brain scans. Your presumption that love is merely an emotional response indicates you're confusing lust with love.

And yet quantum physicists, including Bohr, Heisenberg and Wigner, concluded after exhaustive scientific experiments that consciousness, i.e. thoughts causes quantum state reduction, that consciousness, i.e. thoughts collapses wave function. Are you saying you are right and science is wrong?

Mr Crick is a follower of that great(and I use the term loosely) thinker Michael Behe who in the Kitzmiller v Dover ASD court case was FORCED(in order to protect his argument) to admit that,
"if creationism was taught as science then it would only be fair to teach astrology too as they were both comparable in their contributions to human knowledge" (I`m paraphrasing).
These people are not above looking like complete idiots to protect their dogma.
:) How sad, 4 him.

One thing wrong there, the only thing going for him actually:
It is legal (in his country).
Still horribly immoral and disgusting, but legal.
Legal or not, when children die from it, when little bodies are ripped so that surgery is needed to repair what was done to them, these people know it is wrong. They know it!

Ans.
01. I think you are "over reacting" without any cause.
02. When you define any thing, it should be a Positive definition. We cannot say, Oxygen is a gas which is not Nitrogen.
03. If you ask 100 Atheists, what Atheist means, they will give you 100 different answers.
04. And if you ask 100 Atheists what they believe in, you will get 100 answers too. Every Athiest is a religion unto himself or herself.
05. The "Only" point on which ALL Athiests agree is that "There is No God and there is No religion" and this is a "Negation" and it is not enough, you should have an assertation too!
Some one said All this dictionaries are written by Religious People so Athiests should not believe on it and here you are again referring me to these dictionaries
Well said, MUQ

Do you know the Thumb Rule of discussion in these threads?
The one who comes to name calling, abuses and swear words and throws tantrums and hyperbole..... is the one who has no reasonable and logical answer to the subject being discussed!!
I thank you for accepting your "inability and disability" to define what is Atheism!!
Tattered old strawmen laced with stinky red herrings garnished with ad hominem vomitus sauce is all these anti-theists are able to serve as rebuttal. I don't expect logic, reason, or civil discourse from them and they don't disappoint....

Of course you would agree with someone who agrees with marriage between pedophiles and children.

You wouldn't know morality if it it slapped you across the face.

<quoted text>What Jesus taught? He taught Mary to be a male so she could get into heaven, and he taught Jewish Rabbinical law that would make a bride from a toddler impaled on a penis. He taught that you will and must hate your family, he taught that he came to save the Jew only, and he taught that practicing cannibalism and vampirism will get you the ultimate zombie experience. Duh, no, no thanks. BTW: Anybody seen the real savior "Emmanuel"?
If you really believe what you posted above is what Jesus taught, you need to get some help from a mental health professional. Your cheese has done slid off your cracker, bubba.....

Why don't you find another place to post your filthy pedophilia fantasies, bubba. Aren't there some other internet blogs where other disgusting perverts like yourself can hang out and masturbate together?

Let me get this straight.
-I show my opposition, quite obviously, to pedophilia.
-You sympathize with a pedophile (MUQ).
-You then accuse me of being a pedophile.

And you want us to treat you as a sane individual with morals?

No he is not confusing lust with love, you just lack the proper reading comprehension skills.

Regardless you cannot compare a supernatural being like god with a personal emotion like love.

Care to fail again?
