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.

Simple, Stalin killed more. I think it's ridiculous how atheists try to use the bible against Christians.

<quoted text>It doesn't make me angry, it makes me sad....This world could be a much better place and people like you want it to stay the way it is. It's very sad. I get angry about you and your friends lack of social skills, and your constant posts of name calling, anger, hate, and ridiculous responses. It also makes me sick that you have such a high demand for that kind of reaction to be given in return. To me you are all sad individuals who are bored, and have nothing else to do but to fake a liking for a religion that you make it obvious that you don't follow.
I think your reaction is dumb also.

God.

It points to a First Cause....of the Big Bang and everything else that was created afterwards.
No evidence for your claim of first cause. When you're brave enough to prove first cause your ignorant opinions about the nature of the universe might matter.

Its absolutely a contradiction because you said nothing could exist unless god created it, so with that line of thinking a god could not exist unless a god created it. Yes the universe had a beginning but that in no way proves a god or divine intervention. Your using a god of the gaps fallacy and plugging him in where you think he fits. Stephen hawkings himself said no god was needed for the creation of the universe.
God is not a "Thing". There is every things else created in Universe, except God.

You cannot apply rules for "Creations to the Creator".

Big questions of all Atheists, which they think as "No religious person having answer for" melts itself.

It is a baseless question. The Creation process stops when it reaches God.

He is the only Uncreated being in the world, He was present before start of time and He shall be presented after end of time.

Time, space, stars, galaxies, vegetable, animal, human, angels , every thing we see and do not see in this universe is His creations.

Sorry, but if you want to re-write history, it's best to wait till the people alive during the period you are revising have passed away. Too many of us have 'grown up' along with Islamic Terrorism. Bottom line is ... you indiscriminately murder innocent people to make a political statement. Too bad the 'political statement' you make is drowned out by the horror and mayhem created. In this same period, we've seen Israel constantly attacked and goaded. I think they've shown admirable restraint. Any response to an enemy cowardly enough to use 'human shields' and launch their ridiculous pin-prick attacks from populated neighborhoods is bound to result in collateral damage. Of course, that's the point, isn't it?

Who says you get to pick when "the creation process stops"? It is not absurd to ask 'from whence came a Creator'. It is absurd to presume a Creator's existence based upon pure conjecture. Like I've said ... only godbots think they can sum the Universe up in a Topix post. Another absurdity. Keep 'em coming MUQ. Science opens our only window into the early Universe. Religion offers nothing ... NOTHING ... but childish fairy tales. You can piling absurdities upon absurdities until the end of time and you will never come an inch closer to reality. Why? Because you have already got it all figured out!

"Time, space, stars, galaxies, vegetable, animal, human, angels , every thing we see and do not see in this universe is His creations" and he "is the only Uncreated being in the world".

That's not even a good Fairy Tale, MUQ. It's incredible that a Human Being, alive in the times we are living in, could utter such nonsense.

Oh so it's only the amount of people that makes it a horrible act now? I thought your opinion was that Atheism was the problem. Since there are obviously many christian killers in history as well, did you decide that we needed to play a numbers game with it now? I have no time for that kind of stupidity. As far as Atheists trying to use the bible against christians...it seems that it's needed many times. If you are a christian then you are supposed to follow what your book says correct? Well when you start talking to people the way you start talking to them....that's when I will start telling you what you should already know. I don't see how that is using it against so much as it is, oddly enough, trying to get you to follow it and leave us the hell alone lol.

If you are not trying to convert people to your religion then I see no purpose for you on this forum other than to argue when there is no reason for it. That is really plain and simple. It's really not that complicated at all.

Well thanks for clearing that up lol. Unfortunately, this is just your opinion, and not a fact. See you have no proof, and Science can only tell us so much so far. I will say this though...science is definitely winning out. They have much more plausible possibilities than "God made it".

Again, don't preach what you don't believe in. Is that simple enough for you? It's never a numbers game, but many atheists try to say how much religion has killed, etc... It's people who are power hungry that kill people. It's people's hatred that kills other people. Atheists, theists, gangs, drug cartels, bikers are to name a few. When atheists leave theists alone, uv will be more than happy to leave all of you alone.

I'm theist and nobody will change that, but I don't preach, convert, or condemn you to hell, it's not my thing to do. I have to admit that I love taunting and pissing off atheists, but it's all in good fun to me.

I don't preach what I don't believe in. I have read things that I don't believe in, and I repeat them to people who have obviously never read them before.

[QUOTE who="Educated What"]<quoted text>

And many christians try to say how much a dis-belief in a god means that you are automatically immoral, and cruel. Not to mention all the talk of Satan worship.

I agree. Well and I can add in that sometimes they are just flippin crazy no matter what their "into".

The problem I have with this statement is that someone is going to have to make the first move. Now considering God is all over everything in our country....I think we can see who the overbearing party might be.

At least you can admit to the fact that you are only on here to piss people off. Most of your friends can't even do that so simply. However if you are a christian then I would never be able to change to a believer or agree with religion simply because you have the same hateful actions that you accuse your "enemy" of having, and if that's the case then I choose to stay a descent person. For something that you are so sure about, you certainly seem to have no problem making it look like such a joke by making it seem like its all good fun.
