<quoted text>It's true.... Why are atheists fighting against something they don't believe exists??

Why don't they spend any time trying to get out anti-Casper blogs? Or anti-Bilbo Baggins blogs?

Answer: Because they don't believe in Casper or Bilbo....
Religion exists.

Ignorance exists.

Dogma exists.

Religious bigotry exists.

WTF are you talking about?

I wouldn't waste 10 seconds of my life arguing against leprechauns or ghosts, I'm a non-believer in both.
Does religion exist?

People are emotional creatures. It is part of the overall scheme of expression by higher powers. They push buttons and play notes to get some action going. Simple minds are math heads just plodding along.
You were in the Army. You know you have to be taught to march, to follow the cadence set by someone else. You and your fellow plodder alongers holler a lot and make noise with your hot air pumping machines trying to get everyone to follow your cadence. You don't realize you are the ones out of step.
Get some poetry in your soul. Get you a duduk and emote.
So no proof of god then. Keep lying, we'll keep laughing at how many different ways you can try to articulate "I have absolutely no proof of god, but god is real I tellz ya, honest!"

These creatures think in terms of slogans as used in commie countries like north korea, they use the same sort of mantras as used by terrorist groups like the red army faction of germany, red brigades etc with their 'peoples revolutionary liberation struggle' and so on.
The hatred of God and viewing him as an enemy to be destroyed is compulsory to their political thinking not rational thinking.
They then merely rename their political thought as 'rational thought' and peddle it from there.
Their mental poison comes from the Frankfurt School of marxism, a combination of narcissism, hedonism and ultimately nihilism and probably something else.
And their "rational thought" & "skepticism" ends when a calculator can't give them any answers.

Society is a mix of ideas. Some are good, some are bad. They all must be challenged. If someone says trickle-down economics is the best way to help the poor, people will stand up and say "That's crap." But in our country, religion gets a free pass. It shouldn't.
So then your ultimate goal is to overturn the Constitution?

Just as you have every American right to not believe, I have every American right to believe.

That, my boy, is freedom.

Enjoy it. Embrace it.
Really? So the gay friends can get married now? I can stop worrying about Christians trying to put Creationism and reconstructed history in schools? Christians have given up trying to strip funding for women's reproductive health?
Yes, gays can marry.

You can stop worrying about creationism when we stop worrying about evolutionism.

No, republicans are trying to make people understand that if a woman wants an abortion, it should NOT be federally subsidized. Pay for it yourself, bitch.

There are two types of Topix atheist. Generically speaking.

You have those that are so enamored with the technical aspects of existence that they lost sight of the greater picture and kind of blunder about in a maze they can't get out of. A jeweler's loupe is a great device, but you don't want to walk around with it on.

Then you have those with the technical aspects rattling around loose in the case.

Get you a tube. Have a friend or someone to assist you.

Ya, I got it. Just wanted to clarify that he believes in a god.

Not a true atheist, is he?

And to have a god that is a word? Strange....

Reason:

Noun
A cause, explanation, or justification for an action or event.

Excellent deconstruction. You're very patient with the hard of thinking.

This is false. For example, the center of mass in the Earth-Moon system is inside the earth. The location where the gravitational forces 'cancel' is fairly close to the moon. the 'wobble' is around the first.
<quoted text>
Wrong. The force produced by two masses on a third does not have to be directed towards the center of mass of the two.
<quoted text>
Huh?
<quoted text>
very nicely described by the vector addition of the different forces. But you don't think math applies here.
<quoted text>
If the masses are orbiting, the distances won't close: for two masses, the distance will be periodic.
<quoted text>
Well, the center of mass of two objects is always between the two.

And here you go from simple ignorance to flat-out kook. The rest of your diatribe goes downhill from here.
Seriously, Dave, go get a book about this stuff and read it. The universe doesn't work the way you seem to think. And yes, the ideas in the books have been tested repeatedly over the last few centuries. They actually work in practice.

Why do you atheists always ask the stupidest questions?

That has nothing to do with the fact that you are arguing against something you claim to be a non believer of.

Why?

Atheist bigotry exists as well, Aero.

Don't pretend like it doesn't.

You're doing an awful lot of shouting for something you claim to have no belief in.....

Bob of Quantum-Faith is a prime example, he quotes me and then calls me a racist even though there is no mention of race in what he has quoted me or even the thread he quoted me from.
Atheists use marxism because it is a shrink wrapped ideology with no thinking required.

And yet Skeptic claims the the non existance of God has been proven, but when you ask for this evidence all you get is 'God doesnt exist because I said so'.

Evolution is science. Sorry, you'll always have to worry about education occurring in schools.

Creationism is religious mythology.

A load of crap. The Religious Right wants abortion to be illegal and the most extreme elements want even contraception to be illegal. Listen to politicians like Rick Santorum. He thinks people's bedrooms are a legitimate domain of the government, which should make sure they're doing the right,'godly' things. And this isn't a crackpot who has 2 followers; he was a major GOP candidate for President.

I'm sorry that you don't have any proof of god and must lie about atheists to further your cult.

It just demonstrates how poor your morals are to us folks.
