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.

Every tyrant , every mischief maker, every one filled with vain glory, tries to muffle out the voice of truth and reasoning.
Did my post hurt you in sensitive part?
Why not answer it, instead of banning it?
Don't you attack Muslims for banning so many things? Why resort to same action?
Why do you refuse to denounce islam's abuse, rape and murder of little girls are you afraid?

In the open dialogue with Archbishop of Canterbury, Dr. Rowan Williams, Dawkins also noted that in his book, The God Delusion, he never made the claim that he is certain that God does not exist.

Of course, he has never made the claim that Santa or pixies don't exist either. The point is that there is no good reason to believe in gods, pixies or Santa.

I meant: Of course, he might never have made the claim that he's certain that Santa or pixies don't exist either, or if he did it wouldn't be controversial. The point is that there is no good reason to believe in gods, pixies or Santa.

The important difference is that there isn't widespread adult superstition about pixies or Santa, but there is regarding abrahmic or interventionist gods.

A number of contributors leap to the doubtful conclusion that they can confidently distinguish the people who have duplicate monikers.

I think those who use multiple monikers have been discerned occasionally and (I seem to recall) have even admitted their duplicity, though they see nothing wrong in it. My perception is that some people use multiple monikers, but most don't. Some probably 're-invent themselves' with a new moniker sometimes.

Religious beliefs are easy enough to discredit without such concerns.

Religion = superstition
Atheism will become redundant when religious beliefs are more widely and thoroughly discredited. We're all apixie-ists too.

First you said: "It should be noted that oil companies are commercial enterprises and not political ones."
When I questioned your intelligence about making such a statement, you reiterated that oil companies were about "business, not politics."
When I responded by stating that the oil lobby is one of the most powerful political forces in the US, your response was to launch a childish personal attack me for saying it and then flip over to defending oil companies' political activities.
I stand corrected. You're not stupid. You're a moron, bubba.

Why the name change, Just Results?
Yeah, I know who you are.
Everybody, this is Just Results, a flaming radical hyper superfundie who posts hate on the "Why I'm No Longer A Christian" thread. He has a number of socks, most notable of which is a grayboxer known as "Gut Stomper." He's got about six or seven other socks, and he thinks he's really clever about changing his name--but his ISP location is always the same.
Now he's come to ruin this thread.
Just thought y'all ought to know.

Very interesting lie you claim here. Me being a newbee on topix,
The only thing "new" about you is your current registration. How many user IDs *do* you have now? With all your free time, you have ample opportunity to create as many as you want so you can spread your "savior's message of peace" by wishing that people like me would die and burn in your imaginary hell.

Your ISP location appears right next to your name, every time you post.

Your writing style, for lack of a better description, is identical.

We all know who you are, and your little jesus sock buddies will never change that, no matter how hard you wish or pray to your false god.

Anyone using a name like "atheism is evil" is not playing with a full deck! How can one form an opinion based on verifiable facts with this kind of biased ideology?

Dumb as dirt, Zit ... but at least I'm not a godbot. I guess without their lobbyists and political shenanigans, we'd be running our autos on the secret cosmic energy stored in sea water or something. Why do they need to cheat? We line up in droves for their product. A few days without it and we'd be bartering our first born for a gallon or two. There'd be a great wailing and gnashing of teeth. Maybe you wouldn't miss it, living like you do all self-sufficient on the bitter edge of civilization.
Naaaah, you're a lot dumber than dirt, bubba.

And you bubbas don't have to worry about running out of oil. You'll still have plenty to drink after you run out of water and food....

That's because you are a career-less, jobless , good for nothing atheist.
Whats your problem with Atheists???
Is it bad to have no belief???
Why attack people with no job or career?
Why the hate?
