Atheism requires as much faith as religion? bearvspuma : The only problem with this rationalization is that ita s assuming all athiests are so because theya re intelligent in the ways of science and reasoning and all people that believe in a form of god are unintelligent.

SO! most of you hateful witches were influenced by christianity too, but you chose the world, the flesh and the devil over living in the spirit and now God and His people are your enemies just like it was for judas, stalin and all other wicked people throughout history. just like some traitors and spies chose to keep their identity a secret so that they can sabotage armies from within, so do some of y'all anticristers.....DUH!
This is exactly the sort of irrelevant mumbo jumbo that I expected. It completely ignores the documented facts and instead simply attempts, with no evidence whatsoever, to put the blame for what you cannot understand on atheism.

And again you are wrong, you make assumptions based on your own hatred, you are assuming that because I don’t like you then I don’t like all christians, how arrogant can you get?

Do you have any evidence that Stalin chose to keep your claimed atheism secret?- hell no, you have nothing other than hearsay and lies that pander to your wet dreams

Where did I, or KiMare, ever say that terrorism is OK?
You are a liar.
It is you who is trying to excuse Muslim terrorism and atrocities, which are going on everyday both in Muslim countries and outside, even in our own civilized Christian countries when they could.
Show me where Christians are killing in the name of religion, as you imply.
The IRA do NOT kill in the name of religion, but in the name of nationalism.
And even in their case they have ceased all terrorist activities long years ago.
While your beloved Muslims are continuing, and even increasing daily their terrorist activities on innocent people.
Trying to excuse them or watering it down is a shame on you.
You excuse christian terrorism, you deny christian terrorism and you lie about christian terrorism while coming down blindly and hard on Islamic terrorism.

I have no argument with the claim that Muslim atrocities happen often. I do have argument with any claim that say christian atrocities do not happen or that somehow Muslim atrocities are worse than christian atrocities.

I have already shown you where christians kill in the name of religion and YOU have condoned / excused / ignored them.

And you are doing it again, so do we assume that you have contributed to the NORAID fund and hence are at least partly responsible for the murder of women and children? It seems that is a question you have not answered.

Here, let me tell you what happened contributions to NORAID. The donations, ostensibly for charitable relief work in Northern Ireland brought into Ireland, often using US diplomatic methods. And this is the bit that will upset so many good contributors to NORAID because they found the way to Libya (gaddafi’s lot) and Russia in return for arms and ammunition or to some of the Russian satellite states in exchange for explosive. Then of course indiscriminate murder became easy.

I will repeat the IRA are a christian funded organisation who murdered in order to attain a catholic state for all Ireland. It was funded by christian donation, mostly but not all collected by Americans in America. Although funding from the US has more or less dried up and they (claim) peaceful political involvement there are various branches, notably the RIRA are using terrorism.

Trying to excuse them or water them down is shame on you and considerably hypocritical.

Honey, I have no god to lie for and I actually find lying abhorrent, hence the reason I come down so hard on godbots like you who lie for your god and your belief and don’t even realise you are doing it.

You still have NOTHING that equates to the violence that will be perpetrated on humanity TODAY! Zip, zero.
Nor is the horrific intolerance of Islamic violence limited to 7 countries.
First you decline to post validation, now you try to discount links FROM YOUR OWN POSITION!!! Everyone knows, if you really didn't believe them, all you would need to do is post validation disproving it.
As to your claims of Christian despots and wars, the facts don't agree with you, let alone most people. But you go right ahead and look like an idiot.
Kuwait didn't ask for saving, along with Saudi Arabia and other Islamic countries providing a position to do so.
Oh, name one non-Islamic country where you are condemned to death for being a 'rational atheist' oxymoron.

Honey,
I took YOUR distorted list of ancient issues. I ignored nothing. You slandered me and I called you on it.
What was your point in highlighting """muslim" """ if it wasn't a silly stupid attempt to discount it's part?
Bottom line?
Today, more violence occurred by the hands of Islam, than any you can honestly attribute to Christianity.
Which makes you a Blonde 'rational atheist' oxymoron to the max.

Honey, the IRA are still killing in 2014 – NOT ANCIENT ISSUES, it really does not matter how you try to excuse them with LIES.

March 14th 2014 is the last attack I know of. Funny really because while I was writing this another popped up in the list of IRA atrocities, a hotel bombing in Londonderry last Friday.

What was you point in highlighting muslim if it was not a silly stupid attempt to deny christian terrorism? Which incidentally is never highlighted in the christian press.

Yes but yesterday it was different.

That makes you a deliberately selective godbot moron and a sexist bigot. Me, I’d prefer to be blonde

And you are whining about the KKK.
You are a really sick 'rational atheist' oxymoron.
I am not defending anything, you are assuming that because I don’t like you then I automatically defending something else.

You have never provided any evidence for you claims that muslims object to the boko haram kidnappings in Nigeria, the fact that you were told you are lying has simply stopped you commenting on the muslim reaction, not admitting you were wrong but hey, you are a godbot so you could never admit you were wrong, could you?

But you still love to promote their atrocity, even if you are a lying T \/\/AT

You tell me what’s more of a threat? Maybe you should ask the victims of bombing and shooting in Ireland, England and Syria.

You really are a childishly sexist moron. Murder is murder, it really does not matter which faith does it. Difference is you accept and condone murder by christian why decrying murder by anyone else.

You ignorance and stupidity has made you accept murder in the name of your god

Godbooks are like that aren’t they? The thing is that it’s not the godbook, it’s the interpretation of the godbot that makes them into murderers in the name of their god. Fortunately it’s only a very small proportion of each and every faith (including yours) who read the godbook and think kill, enslave, subjugate, rape because my god tells me to.

What you believe is irrelevant and of course your comment makes this obvious. I am not here to think how you want me to think but how I want to think. Just because the facts as can be clearly seen throughout history and in many cases documented do not tally with your sensibilities is not my problem however you really should not invent make believe about other people just so you can feel better about yourself.

What gives you the right to claim that I hate religion, I really have no feeling either way, I do however hate liars (including lairs for their god) and morons who make BS up because they have no comprehension of how the other person sees things but of course a guess is better than actually taking note of fact in the eyes of a godbot – No?

Wrong, you may be challenged as a believer in your godbook, that in no way means that it has any effect whatsoever to someone who has no belief in your godbook or you god belief. To me such a statement is tantamount to challenging the tooth fairy or goblins or little green men or other such childish myths.

If you want persecuted look towards tthe Jews , nobody really realizes this because they're not a bunch of bloody whiners ..
Are you really this stupid or is it an act for topix? Same god, muslims believe in the same god as you, they simply worship that god more devoutly than you and they don’t have the confusion of the 3 in 1 mumbo jumbo and other such magic.

Wrong again, muslims believe there are superior full stop, in just the same way that christians think they are superior, it’s the godbot way, it is thought (indoctrinated) from the very godbooks that make you who you are.

Actually yes they are, the whining that they are wronged each and every time they murder an innocent Palestinian child and their whining excuses as to why they withhold medical necessities and cause deliberate suffering and hardship is really quit nauseating.

And quite funny really because there is no one that can whine like a Jew in full whine mode. I know Jews who are proud of that fact.

I really don’t think you have a grasp on the situation, when anyone goes on a killing spree then someone gets killed. But I suppose it’s ok for you to excuse a christian who does not shout praise jesus but if someone shouts praise allah then it’s all wrong.

And you also seem to be saying that christian bombs don’y kill people as much as muslim bombs, perhaps it’s shouting praise allah that make them more deadly?

Of course I know it, probably far better than you. Since the time of Henry the VIII so that must make it ok for them to indiscriminately murder and kill women innocent children centuries later in your book? Fair enough, just so long as we understand each other.

It is far to in-depth to go into in 4000 words, so tough on that one but needless to say. Once Stalin had removed the corruption (look it up) from the Russian church and consolidated his power (look it up) he began rebuilding the church and its institutions,(look it up)
