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.

All of the recent (and past) killers are atheists. Let's continue to focus on that.
Colorado shooters (both theater shooter and Columbine shootings), Newtown killer, Dahmer,....gosh , there are so many atheist mass murderers on the news lately I can't keep up.
Atheists usually start off holding up banners of protest then eventually end up holding assault rifles and pistols , shooting up everyone in a public venue, killing while insane.
It's a repeating pattern I'm getting tired of seeing.
We have the disgusting atheist Madelyn O'Hair for starting this pandemic.
Your ignorant opinions matter AFTER you've proven the god you're lying about and NOT BEFORE.

Atheism is a lack of belief in god. Explain to us where the killing part comes in?

You lying piece of sh*t...

<quoted text>Not true. Stalin killed quite a bit
Stalin didn't kill for atheism, therefore your argument is shot.
You know who did kill in the name of Christianity?
Hitler.

<quoted text>Why are you so hateful? I have friends who are christians who aren't nearly as hateful as half of the christians that find their way to the atheist forum.
Topix is rampant with the hateful types.
I don't get it either.
I have met a few good religious people though.

<quoted text>I worship God, his name as I call him is Jehovah.
He is the creator of all existence and he is the prime mover and sustainer.
His judgment like his being, persona and entity is perfect in all ways.
He is the only one worthy of worship
You say I worship a mass murderer, in that case you worship quite a few.
You probably have a shrine to Pol Pot just to show you aint racist.
"Seems to me that Christians worship the incredible shrinking god. I mean at one time it was supposedly capable of flinging thousands of billions of galaxies into existence with a mere thought. By the time of Noah, it was reduced to flooding an insignificant speck in the cosmos. By the time of Moses, its best trick was moving a tiny portion of a minor sea aside for a short while. By the time of Jesus, it has to send a delegate on its behalf who leaves behind only rumors that he was able to turn water into another beverage, or render himself extra buoyant. Now it counts as a miracle if a water stain grows mold that kind of looks like a bearded face which could be claimed to resemble this supposed delegate. How much more pathetic can this god get? How do Christians manage to sing praises of its glory and greatness without feeling like fools--or at best, like new parents gushing over their toddler's ability to make a pee."

He also has a love for LV she-males but whatever.
I don't waste my good words on him, I know he's a troll.

But then again, a real creationist would act in the same way.

<quoted text>What's you infatuation with she-males? This is my point, this retard here claims that I sent him dirty messages yet refuses to provide any evidence. Of course dumb atheists believe him cause he's atheist. This retard also married a 14 year old Filipino girls cause he paid the family. To take it further, she's theist. Yet he says I'm a troll that says anything? Even another atheist said he was a liar. Oh but he has a Masters degree from UCLA and claims to have the biggest shlong ever.

I never have the need to make the comment that the false god Shmaltz doesn't exist.
But Shmaltz does exist!
Why do you feel the need to lie?

<quoted text>Really! They were all atheists? They were all humans. They were all Americans. They all had hair. They all were wearing shoes. What other invalid associations do you care to make? Please tell me where you go to find the religious preferences of the various celebrities. Yeah ... mass murderers are celebrities of sorts and chasing their 15 minutes of fame, just like some of your high profile bible thumpers. Some of them, anyways. I lack your ability to draw inferences, something you have developed into some kind of super-power! You're like a 'Superman' of bad logic!! Be careful!!! Knowledge and information is your Kryptonite and it's literally everywhere.
I wouldn't bother treating him like he's rational, moral, or even logical.
He's quite obviously insane, though willingly.
I treat him as such.

<quoted text>We take 'comfort' in it. It makes us 'feel good' to know we are doing something against ignorance and superstition. If someone was preaching "Shmaltz" at you or the god "Shmaltz" was giving you lists of things you had to swallow to get to his version of heaven (or hell)... you might feel the need. Maybe if people, high on "Shmaltz", were knocking on your door or invading your forum on Topix ...
My advice: don't take the guy seriously.
He doesn't deserve it.

There can be no all powerful compassionate god because we have evidence of avoidable suffering.

So what the hell are you following?
