Disregarding the convincing argument of the first post, TFA is a waste of time. Another rehash of what theists think atheists are.

Funny how they never bring up atheists have read the bible and became an atheist -because- of the bible.

The buybull pretty much made it a no-brainer for me. I believed until I found, the contradictions, and outright fallacies. Lucky me, I have reverted to my default stage of non believer, one without theism: atheist.
Now I will never be forced to kill anyone because they are from a different sect than I was.

I didn't "choose" to be an atheist any more than I "chose" to believe in gravity or "chose" not to believe in Santa Claus. That's where the evidence, or lack thereof, and logic led me. One can choose to exercise volition to believe in something for which there is no evidence, as theists do, but if one does not practice intentional self deception or is not brainwashed from an early age, and simply lets the evidence lead to the conclusion, this is just where you end up.

I was at church the other day and when the collection came around I put some Monopoly money in the basket. The priest said to me, "What are you doing? That's not real money!"
I replied, "Well, let's talk about this god of yours..."

Atheism is not a "choice". It is the inevitable result of being educated and grasping the facts.

Religion requires wilful ignorance, poor education, self-delusion, mental deficiency, and a denial of reality.

No, believing the buybull is a no-brainer, because those who do have no brains.

Maybe that's why the religitards think they'll be the ones who survive the zombie apocalypse, they have no reason to be eaten.

Choose atheism cause it's easy and you don't have to think hard about anything.

You're right and all others are wrong.

Moses' diary : God spoke to me today from inside a burning bush.
He said I should be more careful about what kind of mushrooms I eat.

They will be the zombies, they are going to rise from the dead, not us.

Abrahamic religions are superstition - the ultimate in 'easy' and 'not thinking'.

The Holocaust was like a modern inquisition, killing all who did not accept Jesus. Though more Jews were killed then any other it should be noted that MANY ARYAN pagans and atheists were murdered for their non-belief in Christ.]

How Christianity was the catalyst of the Holocaust:

Hitler’s anti-Semitism grew out of his Christian education. Austria and Germany were majorly Christian during his time and they held the belief that Jews were an inferior status to Aryan Christians. The Christians blamed the Jews for the killing of Jesus. Jewish hatred did not actually spring from Hitler, it came from the preaching of Catholic priests and Protestant ministers throughout Germany for hundreds of years. The Protestant leader, Martin Luther, himself, held a livid hatred for Jews and their Jewish religion. In his book,“On the Jews and their Lies,” Luther set the standard for Jewish hatred in Protestant Germany up until World War 2. Hitler expressed a great admiration for Martin Luther constantly quoting his works and beliefs.

Is my ISP supposed to display?

I was I supposed to know? This Topix window is just a small box at the corner of my screen.
