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.

The scientific evidence just doesn't support your bigoted atheist ideas. Poor little blind, deaf, and dumb bubba head.
Actually, the quote I embedded in my response was from your article and does support my contention. Children, in their efforts to assimilate into a world filled with mystery, will grasp 'minimally counter-intuitive' explanations and eventually amplify them into a quasi-religious worldview. Doesn't mean they (or you) are correct. Just means we are predisposed. Sad really and explains a lot. I won't use the 'born atheist' argument again. It would be more correct to say that we are 'born gullible' or perhaps 'born eager to cling to intuitive explanations, no matter how vacuous, so we can move on to more pressing matters". Someone still 'plants the god-seed'... a TV show, a cartoon, a movie, a relative. Some woman just the other day started asking my 3 year old grandson about Jesus. You people really need to 'curb your dog'.

Drunk drivers in Texas kill more people in one year than any religious zealots, except atheist Jew zionazis, have killed in the last 50 years. So, yeah, your Islamophobia is totally bigoted and completely irrational, bubba.
I suppose drunk drivers are instruments in your god's 'mysterious ways' tool kit. Got to be tough coming up with ways to 'call your creations home' without providing evidence of his existence.

You have serious issues. You're a LOT further from the 'I'm okay, you're okay' ingredient to world peace than I am. That's for sure. Your full of hate for Jews, atheists and most likely, anybody who doesn't dance to the same tune that you do. I'd pray for you, but ... LOL ... I'm an Atheist.

Well his God did direct those men to fly buildings into the WTCs so that could be why he defends the crimes against humanity from Muslims.

Creationists can never answer direct questions and resort to game playing / adhominem, when confronted with the facts.

Its a mental illness after all.

You're lying. Hitler was a practicing atheist no matter what he claimed he was.
History won't be changing, Adolph Hitler was and will remain for all time, a practicing Catholic, the leader of a Christain nation, and commander of a Christain military force.

Ha, ha, ha!

Ok, let's text your theory out. When did i try to recruit atheists to become theists? Find the thread and let's see if you can answer this directly.
