that was to Dave Nelson. I still do not get your way of thinking or replying to people. I wrote you a long serious comment and asked you for an explanation, over on the thread about Atheists on the March in America, or some such title - which I think it is silly, since the onward christian soldiers mentality seems to be silly, and that seems to be a copycat type title, which no sensible atheist would want to do.<quoted text>
There's no such thing as god. If you disagree, you need to provide proof.
You've had since the biggining of recorded time itself to prove that you are not liars.
You've failed. How long do you think you can go on lying to people about god, before people wise up and demand proof?
I do not think Dave Nelson has existed since the beginning of recorded time, so you at least should have written "you believers in some god or other" rather than merely you.
Also you seem to think insults and calling folks liars is an acceptable approach for a presumably rational atheist. I think it gives a very bad example of atheism, and requires other atheists to denounce you and your tactics - which is too bad, since you are capable of making rational arguments against religious beliefs.
I do not think that you know there is no God - if you say you do, then the burden of proof is upon you. You are very arrogant in saying that if someone disagrees with you, the burden of proof is on that person. If you state there is no God, the burden of proof is on you, not on the person who disagrees with you. I wish you would go read my comment on that other thread and finally explain yourself either here or there.
Why do you take the burden of proof on yourself by making a claim that there is no God and that you know it?? Why do you think you can get by with telling everyone who disagrees with your assertion that the burden of proof is on him or her? Why do you prefer insulting people? Why do you like to call people liars when that term usually implies a deliberate telling of something they know to be false - don't you think any of them are actually dumb enought to believe it is true?
I think you are a very emotionally immature person, full of hostilities and arrogance. I think you do harm to the atheist "cause" and argument. I think you are quite capable of doing much better, by debunking the views of believers with sensible arguments - and I wonder why you don't do that. I also wonder why you will not assume the burden of proof when you claim to know there is no God. If you made any claim, wouldn't the burden of proof be on you, instead of the person who disagrees with you?
I wonder how you were raised. You seem to have the egocentricity of a toddler. a nasty one at that. grow up. you seem to think the only sign of maturity is your obscenity and your insults. why don't you use the rational mind which one suspects you have? are you terribly angry or unhappy or both, and taking it out on folks on topix?
