I lost all respect for most of the Atheists on here. They slam the fundie for not looking at the facts, basing their beliefs on feelings and indoctrination; and then they do the same damn thing.
Have a good one, KK!

It is obvious that you people have no clue what you are talking about and it is obvious that you do not care.

What is a "godly day"? Shall I wipe out a village because one among them did not believe? Shall I stone my daughter for not being a virgin? Stone my son for talking back to me?

What do you mean by, "godly day"?

I want to mention that I am involved in this new movement that is a little broader than atheism. it's called monotheistic-fundamentalism. Although it accepts god, but other god like figures like satin, devils, angels, demnond saints etc. It also does not accept the union of a god and a mortal producing a demi-god.
In addition, god is not defined. eg: god is good. Maybe god is not good...maybe god is everything including bad. monotheistic-fundamentalists believe that we are not in the image of god, and when we try to describe god we huminize something that is not humans.
Yes, Athiest go on faith in saying god does not exist because it cannot be proved. Monotheistic-fundamentalism equires no faith because it accepts evrything that is known and unknow. But it leave no room for making things up to support a matter of faith. It's a cool religion. www.monotheistic-fundaentalism.com

Care about what?

If you can't be specific, shut up.
