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.

Oh but they stopped evolving just 500 million years ago. Theyíre 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.

<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?

1 femtometre = 1.0 x 10&#8722;15 metres = 1 fermi = 0.001 picometre = 1000 attometres

Not a whole lot of the universe, but that doesn't stop speculating on the whole thing. In a scientific manner.

Your right atheist just donít show up at the front door, sort of. They are much more subtle. They use Schools & Universities as a platform. Then thereíre the icons that put their message into print and sell their message.
Magazines, books, college professors, comedians, signs, all have used the print media to promote their message of atheism. Iím like you and others in that I donít like my space being violated by personal bids to buy or accept something.
Usually when someone is trying to sell you something by approaching you without an invitation. They are running or promoting a scam. No matter how good it sounds itís probably a scam. Unless itís the Girl Scouts selling cookies. Their cookies are worth buying, lol.
You - all people - are a product of both environment and genetics. There's no other way, unless you want to add magic.

Education makes people atheists. I never teach atheism in my class - not the place to - but I teach critical thinking. That's enough for the smarter students to start reflecting on the nature of religion.

To be honest, a lot of students come to me, to make fun of religion. I think there's a much higher percentage of atheists among those going through university now.

Eagle, your religion has been promoted and is promoted everywhere - TV shows, media, violations of personal space, people walking around pushing it. The amount of atheist media compared to Christian media is insignificant, a tiny fraction. Your complaint here is a joke.

Imagine if we demanded equal time to be heard how upset you'd be.

Personally, we should teach children about all religions in elementary school. Don't even bother with atheism, just define it in one class or something.
