They've substituted prayer with actions of hatred. We have school and public shootings to prove that.
Atheists are universal terrorists. One took action by shooting up people who were simply wanting to watch a movie in a theater.
He was an atheist performing the deeds he was encouraged and coached to do most likely by atheist students and professors in his college.
Wouldn't surprise me if he was an atheist poster right here.
Hi JR.

If this is your way of asking me to go to the movies with you, the answer is no.

How was the atheist response violent? You were merely asked if you were truly going to follow in Jesus' footsteps. The poster did not threaten you with nailing you up to the cross personally.

By the way, there are some extremists that do go to that extent voluntarily.

And when it comes to violence that is usually the "Christian" side. I have never threatened any theist, but I have been threatened and I have seen theist joke about attacking atheists.

I don't have "belief in atheism."
And I don't require any faith.
I just don't believe in the supernatural. I don't believe in hexes, ghosts, astrology, witches, gods, Santa Claus, the Easter Bunny, none of that sort of stuff.
This shouldn't be difficult for you to understand. You probably don't believe in most of the supernatural stuff I mentioned, and as for gods, you don't believe in any of the over 10,000 gods that have been suggested in different places by different cultures over the years, except for one of those gods. So in effect you are an "atheist" about all gods except one of them.
I'm an atheist about that one too. So really, we aren't that far apart. We agree that 9,999 of the alleged gods don't exist, we only disagree as to one of them. Just one out of 10,000.
I wasn't even writing to you..... is that hard for you to understand?

Just because you are brainwashed doesn't mean the rest of us are.
You just don't get it ~ it is events in our lives that enhance our beliefs..... I guess you just don't have the events at all! I can only feel sorry for you as you are missing out on much :(

Know what the name of the forum is Black Sheep? It also has a question mark after the title, sort of insinuating that this is a forum for debate!!

Hey Richard.

You have to get yourself an "event," whatever that is.

An you'll be converted.

And will no longer be "missing out on much."

Christards want to blame it on atheists and....
His priest wants to say he was possessed by the devil.
Nobody want to admit he was just plain crazy, probably driven that way by them.

So when bad things happen to you, your belief grows? When a car crushed my leg and the doctors cut it off, I should have dropped to my one knee and thanked your god?

Am I the only one that finds that silly?

Well you could have prayed for God to fix it. Oh wait, God hates amputees, never mind.

Neat coincidence, the ship in the background was named for a battle my father fought in. My Dad was a Marine at the battle of the Chosin Reservoir. They were severely outnumbered, well over 3 to 1, with estimates of up to 10 to 1. The nights got down to -30 F. And of course they were camping with no fires. The Marines had on the order of 60% casualties and had to withdraw, yet it is still considered a great Marine victory. Their own casualties were horific, perhaps up to 30,000 dead. The Chinese had not been openly in combat in the Korean War before this and their goal in their first battle was to totally wipe out the U.N. forces (luckily for me they failed). My father was wounded in the leg and like many veterans of that battle he still has issues from frost bite today.

God's a jokester. Sometimes he makes my ankle itch. Kinda like the dude who's been wearing contacts for 3 years and still, occasionally, puts his finger between his eyes to push up his imaginary glasses.
