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.

You just spouted a whole litany of brain washed Christian Dogma no doubt fed to you as a small child.
Not even close, bubba.

Your erroneous presumption that it was is just further proof of your atheist ignorance and arrogance.

I answered your question before you asked it because time doesn't exist ... or does it?

I have no doubt whatsoever you learned your conception of God from dogma taught by whatever Christian sect you followed. That's what most people do. And what, most people don't know and never learn is Jesus was not a Christian and neither he nor any of his followers were involved in establishing the Christian religion or any of its false teachings. In my opinion, few of the hundreds/thousands of different Christian sects that exist today even understand let alone follow or teach what Jesus or any of the Prophets taught about God, the world, life or anything else.
BTW my conception of God didn't come from "Christianity" or any other man made religion. Your knee jerk assumption that it did was what I call extremely ignorant. Discovering the religion you trusted gave you false teachings is the first step in the path to enlightenment. Adopting atheism and using it as a process to purge yourself of all those false teachings can be healthy and productive, but adopting atheism permanently as your new religion is just as lazy and ignorant as remaining a "Christian".
By definition I have to label myself an atheist because I don't believe in a deity. Since I don't claim to know for certain that there isn't a "god" then I've been told I am agnostic. I simply, really choose not to label myself at all.

And yes...from your previous posts I assumed that you were a christian. If I may ask, what is your belief? I have seen that you obviously believe in a "god", but what are your beliefs if you aren't christian?

I've read several other posts from her. I don't like to assume that people are crazy, but I do like to make sure that they take responsibility for their actions and words. She is not very polite at times, and I personally think that the muslim religion is worse than the christian one. I base that opinion on the way they treat their women though...I haven't read their book so I can't comment on it. What I have read about it though I do not agree with.

The fact that you don't think time exists just shows how incredibly dumb and insane you are.

I was raised in the Catholic religion, became an atheist, had a near death experience during which I was instantly healed from a terminal disease by an entity I choose to call God. I've been a big fan of His ever since. And, no, I'm not a member of any religion. God, as I understand Him, is omniscient, omnipresent, omnipotent spirit and He is in every particle of everything in the universe,.like the Higgs field....

If it exists, if it has its own separate reality and isn't just in your head....prove it, bubba.

This time thing is being discussed on another thread, and I'm not educated in it at all except for what I've heard, and what I googled earlier, but it seems as though this time problem doesn't have a clear answer. I don't understand the importance of this topic. Can someone please explain this to me.

The Quran is a garbled mess. It steals from the Torah, the gospels and Hindu writings and tosses in some adventures in wife beating from Muhammad. Often it just rambles on and on with no coherent point whatsoever.. Much like a Muq post!
