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.

After your hundreds of vile insults and displays of ignorance on here nobody will respect or believe you.

Sorry you don't get to have it both ways she-male licker.

First of all, I am no idiot and I don't preach to anyone. I don't try to convert or do I pray with you. I am a theist but that is my choice. The reason I am no idiot is what I do for a career. I do own businesses and I guarantee it took a brain to get there. I worked hard. I also do not slow anyone to preach to me either because of choice. You have the choice to believe or not to believe and I respect that. But you respect me too.

He is very needy and lonely as evident by the 30+ PMs he sent me begging for my attention. Creepy to be honest.

Exactly and when you have so many people messing things up for reasonable people all because the magic sky wizard told them to we see why it's dangerous.

<quoted text>You have to earn my respect and you have failed miserably at that. Your bragging and pontificating are nothing to me. You can say anything on the internet and unless you wish to impart your name and address, your self aggrandizing cannot be verified. I've often found that people toot their own horns because no one else will.

My post stands as it is.
Now that I think about it, I believe that earning respect from someone that already assumes all theists are idiots may not be worth the attempt. I am not going to try to earn your respect because I really don't need it. Your post is an opinion anyway so no big deal. But have a great night.

This is another way of not answering anything.

Just reverse the direction!!

And what about, why More people should not follow the example of Adam Lanza?

Oh, the man that claims to be perfect has now entered the argument. Aren't you still on vacation? Wait, you are suppose to prove that I sent you PMs about liking you, etc... What else did you state? How about that IQ exam you supposedly set up in Vegas, tell them about it. Also tell them how other atheists called you a liar.

<quoted text>You think that prayer is a "contribution". The fact is that helping hands are far more useful than praying lips. Some of the largest charitable organizations in the world are Atheist organizations. In fact, no God is required to have a spiritual nature. But the belief that our "spirit" is eternal is folly.

"I would love to believe that when I die I will live again, that some thinking, feeling, remembering part of me will continue. But much as I want to believe that, and despite the ancient and worldwide cultural traditions that assert an afterlife, I know of nothing to suggest that it is more than wishful thinking. The world is so exquisite with so much love and moral depth, that there is no reason to deceive ourselves with pretty stories for which there's little good evidence. Far better it seems to me, in our vulnerability, is to look death in the eye and to be grateful every day for the brief but magnificent opportunity that life provides." - Carl Sagan
I contribute financially and my church has helped many victims. Just like atheists, religion has organizations that help also. Now I am not preaching to you because that is disrespectful to you and I do respect what you feel. I will tell you that I am a productive citizen, I voted democrat, and I believe in choice.

But explain how you know so much and yet you married a Catholic who believes in God. Do you tell her about the sky wizard?

Asked and answered many people do they are called Muslims. Adam like many Muslims yourself included are angry miserable people who lash out harming others. The reason more people do not do as Adam and many Muslims do is simple. They are not animals like you who cheer for children being attacked and they want to live.

Now do you think Muslim suicide bombers go to heaven? Yes or No will do.

We get home after New Years Mr. Needy and lonely ok? But why did you go screaming to the mods about me posting those having them send me two warnings yet you come on the threads demanding I post them?

Regardless I will when I get home back to my iMac so everyone can laugh at your desperation.

You know you are lying but that adds fuel to what type of person you are. If you were on vacation which is a lie you wouldn't be on this. If you can prove that I screamed to the mods please do so. If not, you are a liar. As far as the so called PMs, you had plenty of time to post them. So stop being a chicken sh!t and do it.

The question is do you think Muslim suicide bombers go to heaven yes or no? For months you have avoided this simple question and it seems the only reason you avoid it is because you know how the honest answer will make you look.

The question is what happened to Adam and his victims when both are dead?
Did they became equal?
If they did not became equal, then what is difference between them?
And why more people should not follow the example of Adam?
You did not answer any of these question and are trying to lead the discussion into another direction.
Why not say that you have NO ANSWERS to my questions!!

We have answered your questions Muq. They go against your brain washing from that cult of Islam which is why you don't like them.

Now do you believe Muslim suicide bombers go to heaven yes or no?

Just a simple yes or no Muq to show your honesty.

Hey you're on vacation with a hot wife (probably fat) and are suppose to be having fun. I don't know about you, but I would be doing other things right now. If she's hot, you can imagine. If she's not, I would be drinking until she becomes hot. Instead, you are in here. Thank you, your puppet master has spoken.
