Why are you bashing Atheists here? Doesnt your religion teach you to act charitably to others?
If you were a real Christian and believed any of the stuff you write, you would be praying for us, instead of making insulting and offensive remarks.
Thats a great point adam, Thats the difference between a bible thumper and an atheist.Atheist arent angry at christians for believeing in a myth we just stratch our heads at them. But they call us evil names and say we will rot in the myth hell.

While all atheists may have beliefs, what they all have in common is that they do *not* have a belief in a god.
um..... No shit, Sherlock.

And what all Christians have in common is that they "DO" have a belief....

As soon as the werewolf people start trying to stop science from progressing because Saint Woof Woof telepathically told them to I am sure he would.
Oh and Catholics actually do believe in Jesus. I know that's hard for you to comprehend.
<quoted text>
Are Christians trying to stop science for any reason?

Your analogy is flawed - as usual.

To you, I'd assume that Jesus is as fake as werewolves. Why then aren't you out there getting an anit-werewolf propaganda machine going?

So again you are asserting Catholics are not Christians so you think Catholics do not believe in Jesus. If Catholics believe in Jesus and his biblical teachings they are Christians.
So what branch of Christianity do you align yourself with again? Stop being a chickensht coward and answer the question.
Amazing how cowardly you lot are when simply asked what religion to adhere to.
I am thinking Pentecostal holy screamer.

Once again (you f_ckin retard), I've never said that Catholics don't believe in Jesus.

I said they worship very differently than Christians.

What is a "decent social environment"? There's no one single definition for it. It's relative.

<quoted text>From reading your posts it's no surprise you don't know what a "decent social environment" is. You should get out more. Hanging with the boys at the muskrat bar and swilling wild turkey is NOT what I mean by "getting out more."
You avoid the question by shit talking?

OK, so come up with a way to measure the difference. This seems like it would be an easily decidable question. PET scans, perhaps?
Not necessary for me to do it.

You're the one claiming that people get happier when they drop religion and "live there lives"....

What do you athitards say?

You made the assertion, the onus is on YOU to prove it, or admit that's just your opinion.

There is one belief under the label "gnostic atheism", but there are no atheistic beliefs. Gnostic atheism is not a belief system, unless there are additional beliefs. One belief is not a system.
You're claiming that there are, so you need to provide them, unless you are just lying, in which case you won't, because you can't.
If egotism is driving anyone, it will be the one who is unable to support their position. Right now, that's you, halfwit.
There's no such thing as a gnostic atheist.

The belief that you're right.
The belief that the bible is all lies.
The belief that religious people are stupid.
The belief that life created itself.
The belief that prayer is all in your mind.
The belief that Jesus never existed.
The belief that Moses never existed.
The belief that Paul never existed.
The belief that God isn't omnipresent.
(funny one) The belief that God causes bad things to happen or doesn't prevent them from happening.
Etc.
Etc.

That's your belief system.
If you could prove ANY of it, it becomes fact instead of belief.

Like I said, "If you could prove ANY of it, it becomes fact instead of belief."

Which is it, TwB? Is it a fact that God isn't real or is it your belief?

Close.

A gnostic atheist "knows" there is no God.

Since this is something they can't know, there's no such thing as a gnostic atheist.
