My first year at USNA, mandatory Sunday chapel was declared unconstitutional.
Go figure.
You don't know how many utter "so help me God" while swearing in. For all you know, everyone does.

Ya, that mandatory Sunday chapel thing was decided by 2 people. I wonder if they're the same 2 people that ruled a corporation is a person....

"God" is a pagan word. It is not found in any Hebrew or Greek manuscript.

I can pretty much guarantee that not all of them utter under god. More so than you can guarantee that they all do.

What 2 people? This was back in '72. You were probably still in diapers.

I've never even had an abortion.

But since half of embryos just don't make it, you worship the biggest of abortionist of all. Your god is a psycho.

Even though you lied to make your point, it's good to see you've changed your mind and now believe God exists.
BTW, Satan is the reason for miscarriages, so it is YOUR god that is doing the murdering. I guess that's why atheists murder like they do.

Heard about the proposed Cinderella law in the UK?

I think it should be applied to any mosque, synagogue or church that tells children they might go to an eternal hell.

I know he was said to have resurrected but 300+ years is a bit if a stretch.

Outdated rhetoric?
Excuse me, lovey, I am not as tied to fashionable thinking and rhetoric as you are. I kinda learned to think for myself a long time ago. With it goes the terms, etc. The difference between understanding things and and just regurgitating words.
BTW, you have some alphabet soup or something stuck on your chest there. Here's a napkin.
:-)
Have fun playing your role, dear.
Say what? Think for yourself just as long as your deity agrees

More godbot guesswork? What is alphabet soup? Something you are familiar with?

Oh I am having fun, don’t concern yourself.

Which kind of atheist are you? Do you disbelieve in the existence of God or do you deny the existence of God?
Both

<quoted text>The reason there is not an "atheist Bible", is because the atheists of the biblical times couldn't refute or deny what happened. Everything in the Bible did happen leaving the atheists empty handed. They were left speechless or were slaughtered due to their wickedness.(My goodness I wish I could have witnessed firsthand the slaughter they received).

For example, I would have enjoyed watching the drowning atheists as they tried to cling to Noah's boat out of desperation.

Today's atheists are stranded and embarrassed because no "anti-Bible" was written by atheists to counter the real Bible.

This is why they are so angry all the time.
And you sound like you're filled with unsurpassed joy.

No he is not, the word god is a Germanic word, that was used in various forms/spelling through the dialects of northern Europe.

It never entered the English language until the 6th century, that’s 350 years after your babble was written and 700 years after the late jc is said to have lived.

It is not in any Greek or Hebrew manuscripts although many different words for god are. The most common being YHVA (YHWA) Jehovah, Ei, Elohim etc.

Heard about it on R4 on the way to the office this morning.

Although it should I bet it’s not going to apply to religious institutions, they are going to continue the mental abuse because it’s the only way they can keep there numbers up.
