Oppression, I can honestly say I have never had a muslim verbally abuse and threaten me for being a Christian. I have never had a muslim attempt to kill my children, I have never had a muslim explode a bomb while I have been near by. I have never had a muslim spit on me because I choose a different lifestyle. I cannot say that same for atheists, including you, though.
Smile.
Plagiarism becomes you even if you have to doctor the words to make yourself feel good in the face of your god.

But truthfully, when has any atheist exploded a bomb near you? When has an atheist attempted to kill your children? When has an atheist ever spat on you?

Never, so this confirms that you are a liar in the name of your god but hey, we already knew that.

Say what, christian influenced democracy, do not make me laugh. Oh the irony is astounding. Democracy existed 500 years before christianity was even a twinkle in Pantera’s eye and there is evidence that democracy existed in several areas of the world even before ancient Athens in Mesopotamia and parts of India
Democracy under christian influence is not democracy, it is dictatorship.
Of course you are so enamoured with your god dun it wiv magic faith to realise this in exactly the same way as an extremis muslim is.
So you are going with Col. Mustard in the Library with a candlestick, huh?

And that is the bottom line in the whole debate. Kudos to you.
Sure is.
But I notice there is at least one christian extremist who shows his disagreement by judging your post span, clueless and nuts. Completely expected I suppose and pretty much vindicates the bottom line

Of course voices in your head always have ‘good’ ideas, it is after all the basis of religion once struck with the bug you cannot help but agree with everything the god voice in your head tells you

look , this debate of who is most moral betwixt you and I ..can easily be settled as adults ..
..Rock..Paper..Scissors ..
Please provide a link to this material. Of course it could be church anti abortion propaganda in which case you will be unwilling to provide a link or it could actually be validated academic material in which case you would be only too happy to provide it.

Yes I have also seen anti abortion propaganda claims of 1.47 million abortions each year in the US. Consider that there are a few over 300 million people, half women that’s 150 million women, around 24 million are under 13 and 75 million are over 40 so not really in child baring age. Around 4 million children are born each year. That leaves, broadly speaking, around 47 million women of child baring age. So you are saying that 3% of all women who don’t give birth in a single year in a country where almost 70% of the population are devout christian have abortions? And if pigs could fly the price of bacon would go up...

Pro rata, the genocide attributed to god involved 100% of all human beings 100% of all land animals and 100% of all sea animals except a small handful of buddies and around 18 million animals who all fitted on a wooden boat, impossible to make even today, never mind in the bronze age for almost a year.
But good to see you admitting that your god was a genocidal maniac, not many godbots actually have the bottle to admit that.

As to the laws of a sovereign state, whether they are unjust or not they are the laws.

Yes it can easily be settled, prove your belief in magic or admit you making false claims in the name of your god.

Ha ha, so funny and completely typical of the nothing people like you have in defence of facts. In your deliberate ignorance you cannot put forward a rationally counter so you make fun as though it will earn you extra god points.

au contraire, my love! self righteousness is just that; a custom stylized sense of 'right' based on one's own prerogative.

the only other form of righteousness (the true & just one) is the gift of righteousness which comes trhough faith in Christ, the Righteousness of God Incarnate!:-)

Hi waaaahtsh|tttt, honey, you want to call names then please be man enough to expect like for like return.
Considering that noah is a myth, the flood did not happen, impossible in at least 12 different ways then nope, certainly not as threatening as the average godbots of little intelligence who used bronze age mythology to justify his violence, abuse and threats.
lol! i can take whatever you call me, but i LOVE it when you call me "honey" honey!:-)

the flood did happen, but in order to understand how it could, one must also understand that the earth, sea and sky/ozone was different prior to the flood then it is now.

however, you may remain ignorant if you so please, but don't come knocking on my 'ark' when the wrath of God falls again;-)

hon buns, i'm a Christian and i favor democracy much more than the current 'liberal' socialist party in my country does! this fascist dictator we have is superceeding congress and is applying executive order to establish more control on a daily basis over here.

You assume the universe required a cause, but understanding the singularity requires you to understand it does not require a temporal dimension to exist.
Quite simply Einstein solved this riddle with general relativity, as space/time was created in the initial expansion of the universe. The singularity does not require time, but the big bang unleashed it. In human terms we require time and it is hard to imagine something that does not require it. But there is a set of conditions where a thing can exist where the arrow of time does not exist. See def no. 5.

The universe requires causality regardless of the presence or absence of time.

You are tap dancing around the problem with bull shit.

Nope, christian countries do not instil freedom, they impose their own rules just as Islamic countries do, it just so happens that they are the rules you want, just as they are in Islamic countries.
And freedom under you command is not freedom, it really does not matter what country you are in or what religions you choose to follow.
I have never been mauled by a grizzly bear.

Are you saying grizzly bears are not dangerous?

Are you saying it is not prudent to avoid them when they're pissed off?

Thanks, Drizzled Buns. More sound logic from the Looney Atheist Channel.

Chrissy, so far you have worked as an apologist for:

1. Stalin
2. Hitler
3. Muslim terrorists
4. Muslims who mutilate genitals of little girls with rusty tin cans

Who will you go to bat for next - Hillary Clinton?

So what? If intelligently designed, a structure should always heal itself?

Do computers crash? Yes. So this is evidence they are not intelligently designed? I guess the hard drives and programs came from combinations of randomly generated characters, huh?

No. That's stupid. You're stupid.

I have private healthcare as well as NHS. But I know that private healthcare will default if I have a long term issue whereas the NHS will always be there for me.

Imagine how your health system could have been if it hadn't been opposed by tea party types every step of the way.

In the meantime, the US is slipping way behind Europe in terms of longevity.
