You're stupid.

(1) Every belief is a disbelief of something else. Every killing in history has been for a disbelief.

If someone kills for their religion, it is a disbelief in other religions or no religion.

(2) Atheism is not a disbelief; it is a belief.

Atheist fingers are too bloody to go pointing at someone else.
But Christians are squeaky clean.

And, of course, Christians killed for political power-never in the name of Christianity.

This whole argument is such a dead horse issue, just stop beating the poor beast. You're embarrassing yourself and you're too stupid to know it.

Nothing surprises me where our corrupt politicians were concerned.

Our country's elections amount to rearranging deck chairs on the Titanic. We can't vote our government back to us. A peaceful, people's revolution is the only way we can take back our government.

The multi-billion dollar business of buying and selling political influence (currently the driving engine of our government) must be overthrown, repudiated and thoroughly replaced if democracy is to survive in America.

This massive influence-peddling scam must become our number one political issue because it underlies and thus greatly affects all other issues.

If we don't get big money out of our politics, our democracy and our standard of living will continue to decline and surely we'll take the rest of the world down with us.

These is a word for this: oligarchy

STUPID = BUCK CRICK

The position of the atheist is that the theist has not successfully met his or her burden of proof.

Proof, with regard to gods rests solely with the side claiming their existence.

When phrased to focus on faith, the claim typically centers on a fundamental misunderstanding of the meaning of atheism.

They have erroneously convinced themselves that atheism means absolute certainty that no gods exist.

They reason that to be absolutely certain without proof is a form of faith.

Atheism is not about certainty at all; it is about doubt.

Now say your rosary and be a good little Christian

Yes they did - about 150 million in 90 years.
Atheists murdered more people for atheism in 90 years than Christians in all of world history.
The average atheist year killed 182,000 times Christianity's worst year.
You atheists should not mention atrocities. You have the bloodiest hands in history.
Sorry to inform you dipstick but this god of yours is the greatest mass murder of all time... and he enjoys it!

A god so inept and useless he can't even get a creation correct without destroying it all starting over again.

No doubt all the other gods are still laughing at this major mistake!

This reminds me of building a model ship putting glue on a piece but touching it up against the wrong part, then descending into a fit of childish anger and destroying the entire model.

I do believe there's a caveat to this something about "mysterious ways"

You seem to be forgetting what started the gulf war, which was Saddam and the 40 thieves little
border hopping into Kuwait and attempt at stealing everything including the entire country.
Then his continued defiance against the victors brought this upon them.
Exactly the way Germany brought their woes upon themselves.
Of course you can say no big deal, but to the Kuwaitis it was a BIG DEAL, and I can't imagine how the second gulf war would have ever been without the reason that brought the first one. there were lots of reasons for the second gulf war, but they were only possible because of the singular reason that caused the first. Saddam's greed and aggression.

The last war this country fought for "freedom" was WWII.

All the rest were manufactured by the military-industrial complex... Under the full support of big money and influence.

Undoubtably the worst administration on record is the criminal "Mission accomplished " GW Bush.

This country is in decline.

Even the news is so heavily biased you can't discern the truth from fantasy.

It's a sad state of affairs for a country that once was great and is no longer.

Memories last for ever as long as your mind remains stable.
Heaven and hell are equally impossible - literally make zero sense and therefore are unworthy of any critical thought.
I believe it's safe to say paradise represents something different to every person who entertains the thought that it exists.
Also remember should it actually exist; you will be sharing it with Muslim martyrs..
Will food be necessary or toilets?
If you're not allowed to have animals than what is Heaven without your dogs?
Take the time to do some serious thinking about your own family - will you see everyone since the first amoeba?
Will they even recognize you?
Oh I forgot with gods help you recognize everybody is going to take you a long time to go through a few million relatives just to say how are you.
Not to mention all the new in-laws you'll find yourself having in paradise!
Doesn't sound much like paradise to me sounds like a place you need to escape from not go to!
Ain't superstition fun?
And what about people who's significant other has died, and they move on to another person?

In heaven, supposedly,**both** lovers will be there --- with whom to spend eternity? Both?

That would be a 3-way....

.... the whole idea of "heave" (and hell too) is beyond idiotic.

Yeah. And they waste a lot of time and talent on mythology.
I met a young lady who earned her degree in early childhood education who was shocked when I mentioned that Sarah Palin believed the earth was 6000 years old.
And she wasn't shocked that Palin believed that. She was shocked to learn that the earth was over 4 billion years old.
Obviously, your young lady's definition of "education" did not include any actual..... facts.

One thing for sure...Christian schools produce thoroughly brainwashed individuals with a very unrealistic view of life, i.e. they're going to heaven and the rest of us will burn in hell.
It takes an extremely ego-centric and selfish person, to accept both heaven *and* hell as concepts.

Sad, really.

You're confused. That was the first Gulf War, not the second.

Besides, it's not really a conspiracy theory when the facts bear out the complicity of the United States in the events that led up to the war. It was certainly a war of convenience with full support of the military industrial complex in order to consolidate power and weaken a strong man of our own invention. It's all about the oil leases.

Hussein was wrong to invade Kuwait, no doubt, and it was a foolish move as the conflict was welcomed and precipitated by the United States, Kuwait, Saudi Arabia, and Israel. The history has been opened to the sunlight and it's not pretty.
