Now that's a good one when you have had countless thousands of
educated people who couldn't get jobs immigrate to the REAL
Western countries.
The UK is on the dole. And has been for a long, long time.
Other countries send them raw materials and they ship
out dinky toys. As a matter of fact, pretty much ALL your
automobile factories have been taken over by non Brits....
even the Germans have had a go.
But then again, you snobs never learn until someone

I think not Mr. Christian.
How well do you know your Bible?
You believe in a book that has talking animals, wizards, witches, demons, sticks turning into snakes, food falling from the sky, people walking on water, and all sorts of magical, absurd and primitive stories, and you say that we are the ones that need this rubbish?
Here's what you don't know...
The next time believers tell you that 'separation of church and state' does not appear in our founding document, tell them to stop using the word 'trinity.'
The word 'trinity' appears nowhere in the bible. Neither does Rapture, or Second Coming, or Original Sin.
Now let's throw this potpourri of religious terms into the mix, add Omniscience, Omnipresence, Supernatural, Transcendence, Afterlife, Deity, Divinity, Theology, Monotheism, Missionary, Immaculate Conception, Christmas, Christianity, Evangelical, Fundamentalist, Methodist, Catholic, Pope, Cardinal, Catechism, Purgatory, Penance, Transubstantiation, Excommunication, Dogma, Chastity, Unpardonable Sin, Infallibility, Inerrancy, Incarnation, Epiphany, Sermon, Eucharist, the Lord's Prayer, Good Friday, Doubting Thomas, Advent, Sunday School, Dead Sea, Golden Rule, Moral, Morality, Ethics, Patriotism, Education, Atheism, Apostasy, Conservative (Liberal is in), Capital Punishment, Monogamy, Abortion, Pornography, Homosexual, Lesbian, Fairness, Logic, Republic, Democracy, Capitalism, Funeral, Decalogue, or Bible.
Ingersoll
"The notion that faith in Christ is to be rewarded by an eternity of bliss, while a dependence upon reason, observation, and experience merits
everlasting pain, is too absurd for refutation, and can be relieved only by that unhappy mixture of insanity and ignorance called 'faith'."

Go and put some money on your collection plate, bob nobgobbler.

There are some lawyers that will need paying instead of compensating children abused by your church.

You destroyed nothing except your own credibility. When did you become a geologist or a archeologist who knows how the layers of earth have been laid down? People get paid to know these things and they say a global flood never happened. Maybe a local flood, but nothing has ever flooded the entire earth.
The claim was that there was not enough water to have a global flood.

They JUST discovered that is untrue.

I guess he doesn't know about The First Church of Atheism
Of course we do !

although I do not know the original poster of this terrific piece of humor I acknowledge that I 'Harvested' this from a much older topics post, I do not remember the thread.

"The First Atheist Church of the Non Credo Quia Absurdum.

" We have no buildings, no scriptures, no beliefs in common except by coincidence,(I refuse and nobody else is willing either), no dogma, no
clergy, no missionaries, no holy book, no rituals, no observances, no special clothing or hats. We never meet, collect money, or even communicate
with one another.

We do, however, demand tax exempt status.

All communications with other atheists will be exempt from legal discovery.

As the self-ordained head of this church, I expect to be eligible for a job as a cruise ship chaplain or United Nations Atheist Ambassador."

Remember...
That God cannot lie, is no advantage to your argument, because it is no proof that priests can not, or that the Bible does not.

Religitards believe god drowned every baby not on the ark.

Religitards worship a baby drowner.

That acceptance must contribute to the child abuse so prevalent in churches.

Nope, Islam, like its predecessors, Will eventually collapse under the weight of scientific understanding.
Perhaps not in our lifetime but it will happen.

"Lack of belief", no matter how you slice it with the naming conventions, is on the rise worldwide.

And whilst dabbling in superstitions... organized religion that is,(Thx Mr. Clampett) we shall consider this...

A advanced alien spaceship lands on the White House lawn. The occupants or aliens step out onto the lawn under the full glare of media and reporters. Our military is on DEFCON 1 alert and the weapons are pointed directly at these strange creatures from another world.

They offer the promise of long life and everlasting peace with the advanced scientific knowledge they retrieved throughout their long history and clearly demonstrated by visiting our planet.

Do you think the aliens would care about any of our many religions? Their beliefs, their rituals, their clothing and such?
