<quoted text>I don't think many people actively disdain religious people, and I personally have no problem with a personal belief in god.
I do, however, take issue with those who make it their personal mission to spread their belief - a behavior that is highly encouraged in certain religions, christianity being one of them. And I am especially against those who try to impose the archaic notions of their religion on science and social policy. If someone wants to think that we are magical creations and that evolution is false, or if someone wants to think that gays shouldn't have equal rights, that's fine so long as they remain personal beliefs. They are stupid personal beliefs, but they are personal nonetheless. It's when people make it their mission to impose their beliefs on everyone else that it becomes a problem.
Why would you have a problem with a Christian? as a true Christian you are to live a quiet, humble productive life. There is but one true church? and that would be the Church of Christ, Romans 16:16, Mark 16:16. Study Acts 2 and it will tell you when the church was started and how to become a Cheistian. It will tell you how God wants us to worship him, which is in spirit and truth.

You should deny gravity next. If gravity is real how can jets fly for hours over oceans even! How do birds fly if gravity exists? If gravity were real we would all be crawling on the ground barely able to stand up!
Just thought I'd help your next argument out you flat earth reject.
<quoted text>
Every time you jump, you experience gravity. It pulls you back down to the ground. Without gravity, you'd float off into the atmosphere -- along with all of the other matter on Earth.

The print media. Kind of like "In God We Trust" being printed on money? Atheists can't exactly say, "That offends me so I'm not going to use that money". Talk about a scam.
At least it's honest about itself, heck it shows you a pile with an eye ball. I take it to mean if you have a huge pile of money you're a god with trust.

True. Your babbling doesn't work on the educated and rational people here.

Maybe you should stick to teaching Sunday School.

The horseshoe crab would be building and riding jet skis by now. Or perhaps even something more advanced like the hovercraft.
Oh but they stopped evolving just 500 million years ago. They’re not a good example of this evolution thing.
You proved that you don't even know what evolution is.

Thanks for that.

Since all the letters in the phrase are capitalized, I assume GOD means my god of choice. I trust a different one monthly as I spend U.S. currency. This month it's: IN TIAN WE TRUST

Ya, IANS.
But Matthew 28:20 says to teach everything & obey.
It doesn't say "force them", "make them" or "require them".
It's a teaching that you don't have to choose to listen to. Nobody's forcing you.
Why are you so afraid?

Yes, Tam. You're right.
As America has absolute freedom of religion, the GOD on your dollar bill is ANY god you choose.
Otherwise it'd say: "In Jesus we trust". Which America can't & won't do.

It aint necessarily so wrote:
<quoted text>
Have you ever seen the scripture that exhorts believers to approach others without an invitation and promote Jesus and Christianity?
"Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost" - Matthew 28:19
Note that 'Matthew; added much to 'Mark' when he copied it. Guess God forgot to tell Mark a lot of stuff. LOL

Lies grow with each retelling.

"He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved; but he that believeth not shall be damned." Mark 16:16

Mark is talking about the Jewish ritual cleansing that Christinaity perverted into "baptism".

Jewish converts were "Baptised" into Judaism long before Jesus was born.

G_O_D, Mark was NOT talking about the Jewish ritual of baptising...
The word "baptize" has multpile meanings, you know? It also means to cleanse, purify or initiate.
Are all atheists as smart as you?
