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.

Jewish atheism

"Jewish atheism refers to atheism as practiced by people who are ethnically, and to some extent culturally, Jewish. Because Jewishness encompasses ethnic as well as religious components, the term "Jewish atheism" does not necessarily imply a contradiction. Based on Jewish law's emphasis on matrilineal descent, even religiously conservative Orthodox Jewish authorities would accept an atheist born to a Jewish mother as fully Jewish...."

THE PEOPLE OF THIS WORLD must have human rights freedom and free choices of fundamental liberty righteous rights to live or move to reside in places having these anywhere if they do not have, at where they are.

People can choose not to live by their old grand-parents' places, or barns, or farms or inner cities if finding too corrupted or too MANY BUSYBODIES(nosy snoopy people or big brothers snooping) troubling them.

Workers and security guards at bar places would harass and even beat non-smoker customers because they think non-smokers would spend less on alcoholic drinks. Yet other workers would even go along with bad people for being silent and corrupted, and besides, workers don't even have such rights to say something, or else would be told by leaking secrecy and be disciplined
If nothing can do and can change the corrupted establishment, people are having such bad and ugly environment, then they can move to other lands with other people having societies of no corruption but great value and liberty rights and privacy freedom, with no snooping on public at all.

Countries around the world must keep on building societies and be supported, so that humans have choices for their human rights freedom with no snooping agenda and free choices of fundamental liberty righteous rights to live or move to reside, on the planet.

Many countries would not do as US does on snooping programs, while people can file charges if such snooping occurs too extremely for unjustified reasons to them. Then the human rights free choices societies will be rewarded with building excellent rules and systems for all the dignified people's needs, and for many needy people, and many those who are thirsty for all these can move to, and they will be dynamic, as all these are constructive and valuable.

As countries on the planet are facing the radicalism of US doing the coalition of willing again (as if like the standpoint of Iraq war), some of those are the willing, like countries, Austria, France, Italy and Spain, by joining US to pursue on the Snowden case like the Iraq war. Spain did wrong to conduct the detour of airplane going to Bolivia because being one of the willing. First, there were no facts of truth of full evidences of Snowden on board airplane and that was ugliness of Spain. Then in doing the detour of airplane was another wrongdoing by messing up a lot to make bad troubles. Countries can choose not to be with the willing or joining so that the world is not being made so bad, corrupted without rules.

US has damaged relationship with many countries by chasing Snowden, by creating destructive way of International disorder. Whether US has broken International regulations, which can be sued or penalized, as those people so concerned are saying of the wrongs and wrongdoing of such, which are making the world in chaos. US way of doing is not the new world's needs and wants. US ought not make the world to be bad in volatility in addition to further suffer more harms of relation and economy, by doing the too extreme on Snowden story and violate International rules and systems. It ought to let its people have free choices, and not suppress human rights freedom of choices of dissidents (e.g., Snowden), ADVERSARIES, AND non-believers and let them move to places where they belong and want, just as other countries do to their dissidents by taking lots from their homeland to US.

The world must be a free world with freedom liberty choices for all, so that human rights freedom and free choices of fundamental liberty righteous privacy rights exist in many places around the world, that all people can have basic free rights values to live everywhere and anywhere.

You enjoy putting words in people's mouths and lying about what they've said.
Whereas we've been quite vocal and spoke against any kind of harm, you've yet to make a statement as to whether you think child rape is wrong.
Let me make it easier for you, and if you ignore this question or attempt to deflect, we'll know for a fact that your answer is "no":
Do you think pedophilia, child rape, and child brides are wrong?
The gay atheist perverts in NAMBLA want to lower the age of consent for the boys they lure into their homes with candy, toys, drugs, etc. to eight years old. You defended NAMBLA -- said they wanted to lower the age to only twelve years old, not eight.

Again, what have YOU personally ever done to make this world a safer, healthier, happier place for ANY child? Answer: Zip. Zero. Nada. Nothing.

And again, where are all the atheist humanitarian organizations that are dedicated to feeding the hungry, healing the sick, comforting the dying, sheltering the homeless, etc.? Hmmmm.....? Name one and post a link.

The evidence for the existence of God can be found in Whitehead's Theory of Actual Occasion, i.e. according to the law of cause and effect, God is the First Cause.

Rationally, without God, nothing would exist because without a First Cause (God), the Big Bang and the billions of years of sequential causes and effects which produced the universe, our planet and all life on Earth, including humans, would simply never have happened.....

If you want to see God for yourself, there's only one way: purge your soul of all filth, corruption, envy, hate, fear, jealousy, and repent ALL of your past sins. Purify yourself.

Matthew 5:8 "Blessed are the pure in heart for they shall see God." -- Yeshua ben Yosef

Unless and until you become willing to follow this ancient spiritual path taught by Essenism, Buddhism, Yoga, Shintoism, Sufism, Hinduism, etc. your mind will never evolve to higher consciousness and you will never see, hear, or feel God.

But you are an antisemite hating even people with Jewish blood who are not in Judaism.

Therefore if Jesus existed you would hate him because he was Jewish.

That contradicts itself, your saying without god nothing would exist but if that where true god himself could not exist without a god to create him which in turn creates a never ending string of gods creating each other.

We no longer need to refer to Stalin or Hitler. The Islamofascist dictators have been worse. Saddam Hussein murdered millions of his own people. Mass graves of Kurds, Shi'ites, and other political opponents have been found throughout Iraq.During his reign, Hussein was a major supporter of terrorism. He offered $25,000 apiece to the families of PLO and Hamas suicide bombers, and has at various times supported, and been supported by, al-Qaeda and other groups.

Omar Qadaffi was linked to numerous terrorist attacks, including the 1988 bombing of a Pan Am jet over Lockerbie, Scotland, which killed 270 people. Qaddafi bombed towns in eastern Libya, and his henchmen opened fire on prisoners in Tripoli’s Abu Salim prison, killing over 1,200. His legacy of rape, sex crimes and corruption is unprecedented. 250,000 people died in the Libyan War to overthrow his brutality. He was finally caught, publicly humiliated and beheaded without a trial.

In Syria Assad is a notorious Islamofascist dictator. Over 100000 people have been killed, many are innocent women and children. The Assad Government has used chemical weapons against its own people. Assad's bloodthirsty brutality has left 1 million refugees without a place to live.
