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.

Your requirement that is be "positive" like your claimed cult / religion (which it is not) is foolish and ignorant.

You repeat your stupidity because you know you are wrong.

In the meantime, no proof of your f*cking bullsh*t god whatsoever and you continue to lie while selling us moral superiority.
We know you're lacking. That's not the issue.

Here is an atheist posting what an atheist is. You might recognize him.

Bingo!!

A positive belief!!
As in Religion!

A positive assertion in a belief put the burden of proof on "you" that there is no gods!

This is a perfect example of an Atheist that DOES believe there is no God.

Not an atheist that has an absence of all beliefs.

Religion is like Chocolate!!

This is the Latest one from these Superbrains!!

When you are on diet, you replace chocolate with no chocolate, right.

But when you are "out of diet" , you start taking chocolate!!

So where did "no chocolate" replaced Chocolate?

So after a "short period" of Atheism, people will turn back to religion!!

The West is endangered, primarily, by the religious fragmentation of the human community, by religious impediments to clear thinking, and by the religious willingness of millions to sacrifice the real possibility of happiness in this world for a fantasy of a world to come.

We are living in a world where untold millions of grown men and women can rationalize the violent sacrifice of their own children by recourse to fairy tales.

We are living in world where millions of Muslims believe that there is nothing better than to be killed in defense of Islam.

We are living in a world in which millions of American Christians hope to soon be raptured into the sky by Jesus so that they can safely enjoy the holy genocide that will inaugurate the end of human history.

We are living in a world in which a silly old priest, by merely giving voice to his religious inanities, could conceivably start a war with 1.4 billion Muslims who take their own inanities in deadly earnest.

These are real dangers. And they are not dangers for which more “Biblical faith” is a remedy.

Worse you can tell he paced and prayed and took his time coming up with that. He was proud of that one! Probably called his imam to brag about his cleverness.

Fair play. Another famous German ace was the Red Baron (WWI though). Pity Hartmann wasn't around a couple of years earlier, they could have used him in the Battle of Britain.

When the facts change, I change my mind. What do you do, sir?– Keynes
In 2008, The Atlantic reported:

"Keynes obsessively counted and tabulated almost everything; it was a life-long habit. As a child, he counted the number of front steps of every house on his street. Later he kept a running record (not surprisingly) of his expenses and his golf scores. He also counted and tabulated his sex life.
The first diary is easy: Keynes lists his sexual partners, either by their initials (GLS for Lytton Strachey, DG for Duncan Grant) or their nicknames ("Tressider," for J. T. Sheppard, the King's College Provost). When he apparently had a quick, anonymous hook-up, he listed that sex partner generically: "16-year-old under Etna" and "Lift boy of Vauxhall" in 1911, for instance, and "Jew boy," in 1912.

When an atheist pervert quotes an atheist "authority" but hides the fact that his atheist "authority" was a moral leper aka homosexual pedophile.....it's relevant.

The RAF fought marvelously during the Battle of Britain in the summer of 1940.

Technically the Germans had the advantage in both machinery and pilots.

Had their aircraft sufficient range to loiter over England they would've decimated the RAF By sheer numbers.

Hitler also lost a major opportunity to destroy the British army at Dunkirk.

My point was simply if the Germans had a plane like the zero, they would've outflown the British and German aircraft that time in maneuverability and equal them or exceeded them in firepower.

Sometimes throughout history a battle has been won solely because the weaponry was more advanced.

For example in the United States during the Indian war Samuel colt came out with a six shot revolver.

The Indians were used to attacking white settlers and waited to attack after they fire one shot knowing they would have to reload, a big surprise awaited them when the revolvers appeared.

Ans.

When you can fight WW-1 and WW-2 in which many millions were killed, why you are so "horrified" at this "low level of violence" caused by religious people?

When Communists can kill millions of their own people and there is no "murmur" in the world, why you look so horrified by some hundreds or some thousands being killed "in the name of religion"?

It means that killing on every other ground is OK, but it is only on ground of religion that is Anathema?

This is surely a strange law that I can see, don’t you?
