ďthere are few atheist charities because there are so few atheists.Ē
Some believe the Atheist population in the United States is 6% of the general population. That would mean thereís 19,000,000 Atheist. Yes a small number compared to the overall population.
But if each Atheist donated every year $100 to an predominately Atheist Charity to fund hospitals and help make sizable donations to the Red Cross for example. That would be about a donation of about two billion dollars per year. That is a sizable amount.
But my good friend Atheist as a whole arenít known for their benevolent giving to their fellow man. Why is this? The bible teaches from the old testament through the new testament to help the poor and needed. Atheist donít believe in the bible nor see any good from it.
The truth my good friend the majority of Atheist donít care about anyone other than themselves. Most are skeptics when it comes times to donate to charity. They donít even give blood in massive numbers. All it would take is 15 minutes of their time to save someone else life.
Now itís important that you understand there are some Atheist that do give. But Iím talking about in serious numbers. Thatís why there are no predominately funded Atheist Hospitals and other charities.
Being Atheist doesnít carry with it any desire or dedication to the charities. Christianity is different because Christians are benevolent and believe in helping our fellow man. We are taught this in our Bible.
Atheist donít have a Bible or book to guide them in benevolent activity and encourage them to be good Samaritans. They have nothing which is what they believe, nothing. And nothing produces nothing.
I'm sorry to make it sound so cold but Atheist don't care as a whole.
You lost every shred of credibility with "The truth my good friend the majority of Atheist donít care about anyone other than themselves."

Wow...

The pot produces these changes. Literally shapes your brain. Kinda owns you. But you will think it is beneficial and you are in control.
There is a large body of research kind of proving emotional maturation stops when drug abuse starts.
Yeah, you are your own man. Yep.
Have some more potato chips and some more tokes. Too late for you to recover at your age.
You've been had, but you may as well die happy.

Been had?
I leave that 'been had' to the faithful obedient slaves to superstition. I prefer zeitgeist to polarization.

I have years and years of quality international cannabis sativa experience. Never "HAD" a dull moment!

I have had a very happy life so far and plan to die happy. I have no fear of death it's a natural event.

I think you need to study the movie 'reefer madness'.

You may call this your learning experience into the wonderful world of government approved propaganda.

Marijuana only adds to the pleasure of my every day experience.

I suffer no ill effects whatsoever, my business is successful, my employees are happy, I don't really have to work, I have all the free time in the world now.

About those potato chips...

The Greeks and Romans had advanced medical centers and learning centers.
The Modern University is based on the Roman education system.
All in place long before Jesus was born.
We even have many of the surgical tools from ancient Rome in museums and many are identical to those still used today.

All of the institutions that you mentioned can be found, next to or near , Atheist churches.
The real problem is finding where those godless churches are!
Atheism as a whole has no moral code or direction. Itís a belief that embraces nothingism. Thereís no code of conduct or benevolent duty with being Atheist. Nor is there any required standard of principles for them to follow.

The belief in nothingism produces no compassionate felling for their fellow man.

For example Atheist have no code of conduct that bans lying, deceitfulness, treachery, treason, false accusations, deception, theft to name a few. Some Atheist certainly are law abiding and good citizens. Iím just saying Atheism as a whole has no code of conduct.

Again...that's because all atheism is is a lack of belief in deities. No rules, no guidelines, no code, no meetings, no clubs...

Seriously, this isn't that difficult.

The lack of benevolent Atheist organizations in any serious numbers is evidence that Atheism is a self centered belief system. Atheist have no code of conduct or sworn duty to promote benevolence.

Uh huh.

No dull moments?

Lack of mental depth to interfere with the trip pot takes you on?

I would ask you to think about that..

but...

Take another toke.

Your diet doesn't sound so healthy, either.

Actually, what you said was the that most atheists don't care about anyone other than themselves.

I guess that means you believe that most of those 19,000,000 atheists you were speaking of don't fall in love, get married, have kids, have parents and brothers and sisters they love, have friends, etc.

Again, you lost all credibility with that one.

But the simple truth is, as long as you keep trying to make atheism an organized "belief system" along the lines of religion, you're never going to understand atheism.

I would agree 100%.

Atheism embraces nothingism.

And nothingism produces no benefit to mankind, none.

No drug user has had a life changing experience from joining the ranks of Atheism. Nor has Atheism ever delivered or treated anyone who suffers an addiction.

Atheism has made no gains in medical research.

It has not given hope to the hopeless or feed the hungry.

Atheism has never healed anyone ever in society. They have no hospitals or Doctors.

It has done nothing for children or the homeless.

Atheism has never drilled water wells for the poor countries around the globe.

It has never built schools for the poor.

Atheism has done nothing for the better of mankind. It's not ever going to.

It has arrogantly criticized those that have done all these things through faith in the Lord Jesus Christ.
