Eh. Depends on what she means by "believe".

You could easily make this argument:
- I am an atheist, but I have read the Bible and I feel that the teachings of Jesus (though based in mythology) are still a valid means by which to orient your interactions with other people.

(Substitute Jesus for Buddha or any other religious/philosophical leader).

You don't have to accept miracles and Creationism to say that, in general, "Be nice to other people" is an okay motto.

Poverty, poor education, sexism, etc...all the real causes behind the high numbers of teen pregnancies that end in abortion. And the highest numbers come from within the ranks of the Bible thumping Xtian areas.
Free? Really? Young girls in many areas being sexualized at a young age, being preyed upon by older men who think its their right to have them and as many as they wish, then the girls wind up stuck on a cycle of poverty and little to no education, only to pass along the submissiveness to their daughters...
Where all the Xtians preachers seem to care about is shutting down clinics and not fixing the causes...
That's what I'm talking about...a HUGE Xtian led effort to end the practices and cycles of poverty, poor education and sexism that is ignored for the most part by the bulk of American Xtians. Even when they themselves are very often the victims!
As a woman, you seem a little clueless...maybe its your background...? Are you from one of these communities?
Just reading a few of your posts here shows how your knowledge of people is as shallow as your brainwave activity...flatlined...

You, like most of the idiots here are so willing to 'blanket' statement about how 'every' Christian does 'nothing' to help society and how they just 'wallow' in their 'pride' and 'arrogance' of being special with their GOD...and yet, that's all I 'ever' read in your posts... I, I, I, me, me, me...

While I do commend you for your actions, you fail in thinking you / atheists are the 'only' ones doing it.

I know you won't agree as this goes against your arrogant prideful ways, but your conscience/heart has been instilled by GOD with the LAW written on your heart. Not from the 'muck to man' dogma ya'll cling to...

Its not my money. So I don't take it.
The US ranks the highest in nearly all crime rates...so your lie doesnt work. 1. We're a so-called Xtian nation, 2. laws dont stop people from breaking them...if they did there would be no jails. Laws are so the law-abiding dont have to suffer the criminals being free to roam.
You're right the US legal system is not always just (is the Aussie one truly any better?) but its damn better than what your stupid mythology has devised. 15 yo jerks off for the 5th time, goes outside and gets hit by a car, dies, goes to hell! Woman divorces her abusive husband, she ends up in hell.
"Hardened" criminals are psychology/biologically born that way...all - if we believe you - because your God sent them on their journey that way.
Have you been actually paying attention to 'living' in the US over the last 4 decades and seeing what is going on? This nation is on the precipice of completely flipping into lawlessness. Your 'claim of it being a "Christian Nation' is ludicrous at best...

And your basing this on the fact that Crime is at it's lowest level in the history of the US?

Speaking of paying attention to the living, did you know that Texas Republicans who just passed a strict anti-abortion bill are ADVOCATING FOR COAT HANGER abortions now?

Where you been the last 40 years? Have you not watch American middle class not get a single pay raise while the small group of rich keep taken from those with less and giving it to themselves.

The last bubble to break was because the powers to be new they had to give the middle class and lower something.So they gave us easy credit (far to easy credit) making it possible for a person making 12 bucks an hour get a home load with nothing down on a 250,000 house. Bankers made back while the only ones still paying taxes (middle class) got stuck picking up the bill.

Over the last 40 years CEO pay went from 10 time the average worker salary to 500 tomes the average worker salary.

One thing is for sure.The GOP propaganda machine is great at getting Christians to vote time after time against their own best interest. Your view of Obama proves that...

Here's the trick:

GOP has tapped into the fact that Christians are only capable of thinking about one issue at a time.

So, the GOP feeds them either Abortion or Gay Marriage to get votes. Now, in order for these things to be vote getters, the most important factor is that the GOP does _NOT_ solve the problem.

As soon as the GOP "solves" the problem of abortion, it's no longer an issue. Then the voters will think about something else.

Hence, when the Dems and Reps but agree that elective late term abortions are something we should ban, the Reps make it impossible for such a ban to pass by insisting on no exceptions for the health of the mother.

Why? Because they'd RATHER have millions of elective late term abortions so they can complain about them and get votes.

But after birth the mother a teen aged girl that dropped out of school is stuck in a life of poverty as is her child. a Child that will more then likely start having babies as a teen herself making an every growing number of poor Americans. For some reason some feel the need to thank god for this mess.

Hey, Punisher, how are you?
Let's see, having returned to the Catholic Church the following things, among many others, have occured:
Poverty: I gave the best half of my clothes to the mission yard sale to feed the starving Tarahumara Indian tribe. Now, for reasons totally beyond my ken I've got more clothes than I started with so we'll have to do that again.
Racism: Padre embarrassed the shít out of me by pointing out at Sunday Mass that their token gringo, he called me Anglo-Saxon but I'm not sure Irish-Hungarian falls under that heading, was one of seven who travelled to Santa Fe to argue for 'your human dignity'.
Apparently he did the same thing at the second Mass because when I go out in public people I don't know from the Man in the Moon address me by name.
Sexism: I've embarked on a one-man quest to abolish the 'machismo' stereotype. "Maybe that's OK in the Old Country but you're in the United States of America now where women are your equal." Not sure how much success to expect with that one. I don't think I've convinced anyone to stand when a woman enters the room but maybe that, too, is sexist.
Oh, yeah. I've got an English as a Second Language class.
How does your superstitious mumbo jumbo stack up agains mine?
God bless you.

By the way, Pope Francisco took on the name of that saint because his intent is to focus on the disenfranchised. He is the spiritual leader of over a billion people so we'll just have to see how that turns out.
Right on brother.
It feels better to do than not to do, doesn't it?
Keep up the good works.

“they could not believe”

John 12:39-40 (NKJV)
39 Therefore they could not believe, because Isaiah said again: 40 "He has blinded their eyes and hardened their hearts, Lest they should see with their eyes, Lest they should understand with their hearts and turn, So that I should heal them."

Ya got a screwed up way of showing it. Besides you got nothing to prove they are lies.

I was raised in a Christian home feed a steady diet of religion from an early age and still became an atheist. That leads me to believe that no matter where I was born I would become an atheist. Continuing with that logic leads me to believe that Christians if born to Muslims or Mormons or whatever religion would grow up with a life long belief of that religion.

Atheist are less likely to divorce, cheat on mate,commit a crime or believe conspiracy theories. Atheist are less likely to believe in anything without evidence.
