Please note that for this article "Atheism" also includes agnostics, deists, pagans, wiccans... in other words non-religious.

You will notice this is a statement of fact. And to be fact it is supported by evidence (see references below). Now you can have "faith" that this is not true, but by the very definition of faith, that is just wishful thinking.

He approves of child brides as you know so we can safely assume you approve of the practice as well?

He was graciously trying to elevate the discussion on this thread above logical fallacies like strawmen, red herrings, ad hominems, etc, by using the Socratic method to stimulate your critical thinking skills. It's obvious by your response that you just don't have any, bubba.....

Yes, it would be refreshing to have honest discussion on a subject without all the emotional baggage that accompanies a religious debate.

Have you had a chance to read MUQ’s response to the questions posed to him/her?

There have been very few answers from MUQ’s own thoughts and words.
A direct question about anything closely resembling morals is directly ignored.

Yes I know morals are subject to geographical and cultural, but there are some universal values or I would hope so.

The ethic of reciprocity comes closest ... and so far it works fine on this planet. Though an active imagination could come up with some hypothetical situations where it might not.

Really, he supports:-
1. child marriages.
2. thighing.
3. the murder of young girls.
If you think there nothing wrong with him then you are as sick as he.
Defamation is any intentional false communication, either written or spoken, intended to harm a person's reputation; to decrease the respect, regard, or confidence in which a person is held; or to induces disparaging, hostile, or disagreeable opinions or feelings against the targeted person.

You are a pathological liar and what you have posted is unequivocally defamation.

Another equally repulsive poster has just been banned from Topix for this cowardly behavior.

Would you like to be next?

I've been reading MUQ's posts in response to the questions posed to him on various threads for about three years now. I've always been impressed with how calm and civil he remains despite the number of filthy insults and accusations from sick, ignorant perverts and bigots on Topix.

No it is fact. Any defamation here comes from you to me by saying that I am "pathological liar" show me one post where I have lied.

therefore he gives consent by his silence.

He has also spoken out in favor of child brides and thighing.

BTW. We know you are his sock puppet.

All he and you (his sock) have done is prove that atheists have much higher moral standards.

I just wish for them to come up with something new and not just a rehash of the tired old stale logical fallacies and attempts to change the subject.

Sigh

He said a girl can be sold into marriage as long as she has had her first menstrual cycle or reached the age of 15. You approve yes or no?

That has been answered many, many a time. I can understand that someone that is stanchly religious may have a hard time grasping it, but it is just a person that does not believe in god or gods nothing more.
Do you understand that the majority of posters on this thread who claim to be atheists are actually anti-theists, misotheists, altheists, and not atheists?

Atheists don't believe in deities and are indifferent to religions.

Anti-theists, misotheists, altheists, on the other hand, are not indifferent to God. They are defined by their HATE. They HATE God, HATE religion, HATE people who love God, and are obsessive-compulsive about expressing and acting out their hatred.

I'll take that as a "yes", you want to be banned from Topix.

Works for me.....

Someone who believes God is evil. Richard Dawkins is an example of an altheist, He referred to God as "the immortal knob-twiddler" at his last debate.

Good question. Most fundy trolls label anyone who disagrees with their notion of God to be haters. It is simply a projection on their part.
