Correct.

Too bad we humans are too stupid to get a good, scientific reading on God...

Maybe someday we'll have the technology.

1. Nothing. A low budget Internet "news" site. Curious they had no footage of what the preacher said.... Lie

2. A black preacher trying to lift his community by shedding truth about the lazy black men in his community. That's bad?

3. Nothing. Images of a few guys that "looked gay" to sad music. There's no telling why they were really hung or if they were hung.

4. Terrorists actions.

We're not sure how God made the universe.

But rest assured, people smarter than you & I are working on it.

I'm sure they cannot truly understand any complicated process , it is just beyond the scope of their understanding.
But we still try to make people see that a simple thing can in fact be a algorithm of complex computations , not easily understood by conventional terms , much less by the simpleton.
But we know there is a process that created the living, and it will be understood fully before long.
How sweet, one puddle gooist rushing to the defense of his brother in the faith...love this quote from you,..( they cannot truly understand any complicated process),total arrogance attempting to cloak the lie, the evidenceless belief in the goo miracle.. perhaps you will enlighten me about this process that produced life?, with evidence of a WORKING theory!

a simple thing?ha,ha,ha

and it will be understood fully before long? Pure faith for the simpleton such as you.

You will eventually uncover the truth, however since you prefer to paddle the river of denial, floating along with lies, it will happen at your death.

{LEMON GROVE, CA (KSWB/CNN)- A billboard that reads, "Atheism, a personal relationship with reality," sponsored by San Diego's Coalition for Reason, is designed to shine a positive light on atheists.

Some said the billboard is "trying to shine a positive light on a negative philosophy."
"When people hear the word atheism or atheist, they usually think about a corrupt, bad person, and that's so far from the truth," said Debbie Allen with the coalition.

Down the road from the billboard is the Christian Church of Lemon Grove, where members say they're worried about how this message will be received by the community.
"I don't know how much an atheistic message like that will resonate with the people around here," said Rev. Will Warren, pastor of the church.

For now, Allen hopes the billboard will encourage those who think like her to join local atheist groups.
The billboard will be installed Thursday}.

I don’t who the individual was who came up with the wording but it was brilliant. A softer and more gentle approach than some of the signs we have seen in the past.

Certainly within this group constitutional right. However the location of this sign is less than brilliant. Right on the main path to a church. From a Christians point of view it couldn’t be any better than that.
Why? Well they could have placed it near a University or High School were their apt to make some positive headway. Since they placed it near a church. I think they lost some of their potential marketing ability.

Atheist groups marketing ability is like a fish floundering around out of water. They just make stabs at marketing. Usually they come up with some radical divisive wording. In this case the wording was fine. It’s the location that they missed. I doubt the Church in Lemon Grove is going to empty out in a couple of weeks and join the Atheist movement.

Any organized Atheist group is going to want membership dues to pay for their marketing and other activities they want to do. Only problem is pulling those dollars out of the tight billfolds of Atheist. That’s going to be the most difficult problem going forward in trying to organize Atheist. That’s just fine because where dollars are collected there’s always a potential of financial improprieties.

Remember when Madalyn Murray O'Hair operation came to a abrupt end when her office manager shot her and her son? Then cut them up and disposed of them. Perhaps she would have been better off hiring a Christian Office Manager?

Without funding there will be only a negligible impact on marketing. Like the said in the movie “The Right Stuff.”

Atheism is a pagan religion with faith they evolved from the rocks of the earth even stardust.

The Christian faith is supported by all SCIENCE & HISTORY.

It is intuitively satisfying to think that someone was behind the towering legend. Yet like the worship of Horus or Mithras a human life was neither necessary nor helpful.

As it happens, we have an excellent witness to events in Judaea in the first half of the first century AD: Philo of Alexandria (c. 25 BC-47 AD). Yet Philo says not a word about Jesus or Christianity!

Nothing in the 'Christian message' was original. Brotherly love and compassion had been taught by the Stoics for centuries. The Christian faith was a vulgarised paganism, set to the theme of the Jewish prophets and debased by religious intolerance.

The early Christian sects attacked each other as energetically as they attacked pagans. 1st century Palestine had rabbis, radicals and rebels in abundance. But a 'life' conjured up from mystical fantasy, a mass of borrowed quotations, copied story elements and a corpus of self-serving speculation, does not constitute an historical reality.

there's no such TNT as god. atheism is not a religion. Not a single piece of scientific evidence that supports any religion,

Why do theists lie about their faith and science? It is a cult that is why.
