No. Belief is a statement of faith.
I think it is **likely** someone called "plato" existed-- we have tons of stuff he wrote.
In direct contrast to your Jewsus-- of which we have zip, nada, nothing that he wrote.
Obviously, your Jewsus was ... illiterate.
Neat.

So you easily believe that Plato existed but not Jesus.

Even though there's more evidence of Jesus than Plato.

Sounds kinda biased.

I'm just making observations about your sociopathic behavior.

It's cute, though, that you presume I give a crap about you, or what you think.

So. You have no counter-argument? Good.
I accept your admission of guilt.
It's only because you hate-theists keep passing your hideous and bigoted religion into **law**.
**Forcing** people to comply with your ugly bigotry.
And the final insult?
Your ugly superstitions are SUPPORTED BY TAXES.
You're being too vague.

What taxes support Christianity?

Specifically.

Dreams are not real, you ignorant savage.
They only exist within a person's imagination.
But I can see how you'd be so easily confused:
You believe in mythical monster-gods.
Sad, for you.
Huh...

I had a dream last night.

You probably did, too.

But they're not real?

Go figure.

I also wrote that He can't do anything against His character; His nature.
Which, obviously, includes keeping innocent babies from dying needlessly from the most trivial of things.

That's quite an uncaring deity you worship.

Genius. The man denies a good portion of the history of man. His questions are idiotic, because they show all he is, is a denier. He strongly believes the last word makes him correct. Very odd.
Yes-- you are very odd.

You admit you cannot prove **any** of your ludicrous claims-- yet you keep going on and on as if you **did** prove them!

You are one severely challenged godbot.

I can give you his reply before he does.

It will be a dodge based on word-meanings.

He will say that "atheism" means only rejecting specific god-claims, and is therefore, consistent with skepticism.

His argument will rely on the mischaracterization of the two main terms in the discussion.

Getting off the hook, to him, is simply a matter of controlling the vocabulary.

It's a common rhetorical trick. Propagandists use it all the time.

Then dreams do not exist, by your own definition.

Oh, I forgot.
In the index you will see the section called history. Within that section you will find a list of "movements"
"a group of people working together to advance their shared political, social, or artistic ideas."
"Freethinking"
Say moo.
:-)
HA HA!!

Despite what the term actually means, it is used by condescending people to describe themselves.

The irony of people who refer to themselves as freethinkers is that even though they believe they formed their opinions solely on reason and science, modern psychology disproves that people are capable of that, their cognitive biases make that impossible.

Typical atheist.
They deny God because there's no evidence but they accept dreams, intuition, ghosts & aliens....
I do not. And I know of **no** atheists who do.

Typical godbot-- build up that massive Straw Man, so you can knock it over and declare victory...

... over nothing.

Hilarious.
This is because we do not have islamics herein. We skeptics have exchanged words with these nutters as well.

But you were not around-- likely you are afraid to confront the "religion of peace".

Understandable-- islam does tend to murder critics.

I suppose they learned that lesson from early christianity.

And Dave is even more OCD-- I proved it just today.
I blasted a post of his-- just as an experiment.
And? Viola! Results! I got about 8 of mine blasted in return -- 12 times by the same ISP.
It was hilarious.
He's so easy to manipulate, it ought to be a crime.

Amusing.

The thought you have that so many people that think you are an idiot are really just one man.

Topix needs an online store. The Bouncing Bob Bobble Head Doll would be a big seller. Head bobbling, fingers pounding furiously on a keyboard, and a little wet spot in its chair that it bounces on.

I'm so very hurt Bob that you would say such a thing. And I was petitioning congress to have a statue made of you in Washington. The inscription would read,“Bob, the only perfect human being. He was never mean or offensive. Never told a lie ever in his whole life. Just perfection to the core.”
But some in congress didn’t want a statue of a pile of bullsh*t. Go figure…..
You are still not a nice person, in my book.

All you do?

Is try to put people down.

Who Would Jesus Put Down?

I bet **you** know-- you have no shame of any kind.

You want God to save babies?

What about the old folks?

Or the middle-aged?

What about that college kid that asked for an A on that exam?

Or the wife that asked for a new ring for their anniversary?

What about the neglected animals out there?

What about the weak structures that collapse because of mother nature?

And the dodo bird, what about them?

Where would you have God's aid end? Why do you limit it to "save the babies"?

What kind of people would we be if God did everything for us?

Classic repressed christian: obsessed with sex.

That does dovetail nicely with your obsession with same sex marriage, too.
