Yes, the grammatical errors included in the "stories" are hilarious. especially since they were put in there on purpose to make the scam seem more authentic yet all it really does is make you look like a backwater hick when you speak, or type, like that in reality. Because only stupid people "doesn't know English proper liek."
Giving an insult is like relieving a pus-filled boil. The pus comes out oozing with each gentle squeeze. The swelling and pressure upon the boil is diminished as the abscess drains its infectious contents. A sharp pain is felt as the last of the unsightly pus is pushed out by force.

Now don’t you feel better all that pressure is off of you?

You think facts are insulting, I am sorry, I'll try to be more like you, but I have a very difficult time lying about anything.

Where? Where is this "doctrine" you creatard keep saying exists? Where is it? No atheist has ever heard of this thing, so give it up, if we're suppose to have a doctrine as atheists, then why are you keeping it from us?
Here's your atheist doctrine.

1. There is something called "Faith" which can be defined as unjustified belief held in the teeth of the evidence. Faith is primarily a matter of false propositional belief.

2. The cure for faith is science: The existence of God is a scientific question: either he exists or he doesn't. "Science is the only way of knowing – everything else is just superstition" [Robert L. Park]

3. Science is the opposite of religion, and will lead people into the clear sunlit uplands of reason. "The real war is between rationalism and superstition. Science is but one form of rationalism, while religion is the most common form of superstition" [Jerry Coyne] "I am not attacking any particular version of God or gods. I am attacking God, all gods, anything and everything supernatural, wherever and whenever they have been or will be invented." [Dawkins]

4. Religion exists. It is essentially something like American fundamentalist protestantism, or Islam. More moderate forms are false and treacherous: if anything even more dangerous, because they conceal the raging, homicidal lunacy that is religion's true nature.[Sam Harris]

5. Faith, as defined above, is the most dangerous and wicked force on earth today and the struggle against it and especially against Islam will define the future of humanity.[atheists]

Moronic, I know. But that's atheists for ya!

Read the funny article. Not a word about atheists anywhere just management following the law.

I guess when you see something you don't like you just cry that an atheist did it right?

What an idiot. Catholics are Christian no matter how much you pout and scream.

Your mind is like a computer that has been corrupted with a destructive virus. The virus is in control of your thoughts. You are just the caboose. Riding along where the virus takes you. A deep cleansing is the only way to be rid of this virus.

Of course the virus doesn’t want that. It wants to remain control of your mind. So it remains an active defiant virus trying to reduplicate itself in others. I know that if you had the deep cleansing. You would be a new creature with a pure heart of gold.

There you go again, you keep equating living organisms with machines, do you ever learn anything? anything at all?

If anything, a god delusion is akin to having AIDS, we might be able to cure you, but it's terminal to your intelligence.

How can one deny "nothing?" We believe in no gods, the word atheism is a definition for a nothing, an absence. If you can make up stuff about "nothing" more power to you, it's still made up because nothing means just that, nothing. We don't believe in any god, we're just one up on you is all.
