People going to Hell say the dumbest things.
People who think that atheists believe in a "hell" or really care about someone suggesting that they are going to "hell" shows their ignorance and frustration at atheists who do not believe in their "god" - and know that they can do nothing about it.

No, pricks like you just burn them. If you are heartless enough to kill youthful Christians and unborn babies (people), you'll burn down the house of God.
I am confident you will burn in Hell, you atheist terrorist.
LOL..."hell" again...LOL!

And I believe you are misunderstanding atheists, we don't "kill youthful Christians and unborn babies" - we eat them, hadn't you heard?

So, you mean none.
There are no facts in that post. It's just portions of your religious creation story. None of those are related to scientific discoveries of this era - or any era.

Like I said before, those are your beliefs based upon your religious mythology.

Just so you know, I don't take people too seriously, who, had they been taught differently from birth would be thanking The Cat In The Hat for the food they are about to eat.

However, it is amusing to see what you believe.

You denigrate others when they can't explain what is in the Bible, than turn around and dismiss what can be understood in the Bible.
Foolish hypocrisy.
Run and hide 'rational atheist' oxymoron!!!

Meh...call it what you will in order for you to feel better. From what I have read from your postings and the responses you receive, you aren't taken seriously anyways.
Have a great day!
I called it what it is.

Your scoffing is a childish, cheap masquerade of intelligence.

Now you stoop to ad homoan troll attacks.

I live in Reality, I've never seen you there yet.

If I did mean none, it would be easy, really easy, for you to take each point and destroy them.

You don't. Instead you make immature generalizations that only expose your ignorance and bigotry. In fact, your responses strike me as the classic blondie, you know, the dip in the road of life. Are you a blonde girl?

Your failure to be specific is clear proof that you have no answer. Your denial about God is exposed and you are running scared. You should be.

2 ) God made them female and male ...Science , says homosexuals damage their anal canals and are are spreading virulent disease ..

3 ) God made them from the clay of the Earth ...Science ...well...doesn't really know " primordial ooze " ..God wins ..in the Seas ...Atheists win

4) God says you are to be stewards ..Science , says man is responsible for the destruction of the environment ..

But, where's the scientific links to the talking snakes or donkeys?
Until then, all you've got are biblical myths.
If it’s “links” you are looking for. Something you can bite your teeth into. You’ll find them in the meat section of your local grocery store. Cause I think that’s the only links you’ll ever bother to get.

hahaa..
Where am I in life, according to you?
Haaahaaa I’ll be glad to tell you.

What we have here in your particular case is the “Dunning–Kruger effect.”

Pay attention scooter.

“The Dunning–Kruger effect is a cognitive bias manifesting in unskilled individuals suffering from illusory superiority, mistakenly rating their ability much higher than is accurate. This bias is attributed to a metacognitive inability of the unskilled to recognize their ineptitude.”

“David Dunning and Justin Kruger of Cornell University conclude, "the miss-calibration of the incompetent stems from an error about the self, whereas the miss-calibration of the highly competent stems from an error about others".

Now let me break all that down to a more simpler explanation of where you’re at. You’re a person who thinks you are much more intelligent than what you really are. Remember when you were in school you didn’t study for those test?

And the reason you didn’t study was because you were a genius in your own mind. The reality Bubba is that you are a dumbas*. Plain and simple a dumbas* But you think you’re a genius. You see that’s the Dunning–Kruger effect at play in your situation.
You’re thinking you have hit a home run. The rest of us just watched you strike out and lose the game for your team. But in your own mind you’re the guest of honor in a New York Ticker Tape Parade.

Bubba, I hate to break it to you like this but you didn’t hit a home run. You stuck out. You’re just a plain ole dumbas* suffering from the Dunning–Kruger effect.

To add to that:

Dunning and Kruger proposed that, for a given skill, incompetent people will:

tend to overestimate their own level of skill;
fail to recognize genuine skill in others;
fail to recognize the extremity of their inadequacy;

People turn to Atheism for various reasons.
In one case I’m aware of was a young man that left the faith because he was surrounded by hypocrisy. His father was a hopeless alcoholic. Going on drinking binges on Friday and on Sunday going to church and teaching Sunday School.
Not everyone is exposed to the same Christian environment. In this case I’m referring too the hypocrisy took it’s toll. Another case I had a neighbor that had a child die from illness. This personal tragedy made him bitter and cold. He became angry and left his religious faith to become an Atheist.
Others get caught up into the intellectual hype that comes from some godless Universities. Their gullible minds fall into the recruiting trap of some influential professor. As you know it takes some objectivity to find and get to know God. Atheist are never objective so if they can get someone else to close the door of their mind they have just signed on another recruit.
It is possible to reach beyond the coldness, hardness, and narcissism many of these Atheist and love them. Atheism has served a vital role in my life. It has defined the battery limit and made me much stronger believer in God than ever before. Unknowing to them they have helped me and that I’m forever grateful.
I regret that many of these wonderful people will never know God. Their souls will be forever lost into eternity. Nevertheless, we try, learn, battle, and go forward.
May God give you peace as you fight the fight of unbelief. For we are fellow laborers together in the same field.[tipping hat]
Fantastic rebuttal. Very good !!!!
