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.

Stump an atheist. Ask him why he wants proof that God/Jesus exists.
Okay, I'll bite.

How about "I want proof that God/Jesus exists so that I can examine this 'proof' and determine it's validity."

Actually, it doesn't have to be that complicated. Present me irrefutable evidence of ghosts, spirits, demons, souls, an afterlife, telekinesis, mind reading, levitation, remote sensing, precognition, water witching or reliable predictions based upon the examination of spilled goat intestines and I will cede you the possibility. Whether such beings are worthy of our admiration is another matter altogether. Whatever might pass as improvements to the Human Condition have been brought about by our own efforts.

I don't think any cruise ship has enough lifeboats to carry an entire crew, let alone the titanic back then.

Regarding the other things, do you have a source?

I'm now awaiting more of your filthy posts to bring more to Christ. They all realize now that Christianity is the way to remedy the corruption of our society.
And these 14 people are all in your head, yeah, we know.

Because it stumps religious people, it proves that you can't prove one exists at all.

If Atheism were a religion then, yes it would have to be man-made just as your christian religion is.

I wasn't accusing the employee's of slacking off...I was simply going by what you had posted....that even the employees were getting in on it lol.

I'm sure Starbucks more than enjoyed your wonderful company today..... I can't wait to see where your next journey to end Atheism will take you lol.
I can gather what his story was from the bits and pieces I've heard so far.
I don't buy it.

The fact that we come here to hear the stupid things you say (like that right there) for entertainment, is prof of a god?
How does that make any sense at all?
Wait, why am I even asking, none of your comments make much sense.

01 Yeah, but the Romans and the like had different motives.

01a That is only what we have been led to believe.

01b Inferior people are not supposed to prosper.

01c Displaced? Are Palestinians not, even now, trying to govern themselves in their ancestral region or within a few miles of it? I think they get too much 'help' from external factions pursuing their own hate agendas.

01d Seems the Jews have been around there for quite some time.

03 Various conquerors prompted the 'diaspora' which scattered them out, including Europe. Now they are regrouping. It is good, I suppose, to have a name (Ashkenazi) for the people upon which you want to focus your hatred. It just so happens that Europe is within walking distance.

04 There has been no lack of weapons or 'aid' in the Middle East. The region has been divided and used as pawns / weapons customers for the so-called 'Superpowers' for the last couple centuries. I can sympathize with a certain level of disdain for those in 'Western Civilization' who have misused all of you. Just be sure to include the Russians, who have unloaded billions of Rubles of inferior weapons on some of you.
Ans.

01. Why should “every nation” where jews went hated them? You did not answer that question properly.

1C. Who says Palestinians are not “displaced”? they are living in tents for past 60 years?

1D. Jews have been around for a long time, no doubt, but in a minority living under Christians or Muslims. It seems they are best as subjects and worst as rulers. Their past history proves that and the history of Israel for past 60 years proves this.

3. I do not want to “focus” my attention on any one. I am just stating the facts which I came to know. It were these Ashkenazi Jews who were behind that Zionist movement and it is they who are ruling Isreal.

4. Superpowers have been “controlling” the so called rulers of ME countries, but they have been always unfair when it comes to Israel.

Had they been fair and impartial, this situation would not have taken place.

I just do not see the logic of Europeans Love for Jews, all of a sudden? Why cant they give them a “safe heaven” in their own countries?

In my view Site selection for Israel was very wrong, it bode ill for Jews as well as for people of that area.

And our hind sight for past 60 years has been 100 % correct.

The “best course” should be for Europe and USA to stay neutral and let the combatants solve the matters themselves.

01. There are those who would also like to purge Europe of all Muslims as they are not Caucasian or French or British or German. Isn't this wrong?

02. Why must Muslims focus on Israel which lives on less than .01% of the Middle East? At the same time Muslims are killing each other, hating each other and their nations are in chaos, poverty and ruins and Muslims are impoverished refugees with the highest illiteracy rates on earth. The infrastructure of most Islamic countries is collapsing and governments are corrupt.

It feels good to rally Muslims against the infidel, the intruder, but this is 2013 and its time to live in peace.
Ans.

01. Muslims immigrated to these nations after fulfilling their laws of Immigration. They did not went and “occupied” those nations.

It is therefore against natural justice that you want to turn them out, just based on your Racism and Ethnicity.

02. Why should we not concentrate on Isreal. It does not matter if it occupies 0.1 % or 0.001 % of ME.

Why do you not “donate” 0.1 % of Europe or USA and establish Jewish homeland there.

Charity begins at home, why are you advising us to donate our lands while you turned them out of your lands.

PS:

I gave a suggestion, some times back, that we take back all Muslims from Europe and you take back all Jews from Isreal.

How is that for a solution to both parties living in peace?

People hate the Jews because they do not believe in Jesus. This is common knowledge and you yourself have stated this.

Your comment about subjects shows your bigotry and hatred. Several Muslims live in Israel to this day as do Christians. The Israelis have allowed these people to live and worship as they please within Israel. Perhaps racist bigots like yourself could learn something from that.

If some Palestinians are still living in tents 60 years later they must be either stupid, love the tent life or lazy. Muslims are welcome to live and worship in Israel from day one until today.

01 Inferior people should not prosper. They 'killed Jesus' so they should not be doing well. Yet, they were good business men, studious, successful. A lot of the persecutions were done to remove them from their assets to fill royal treasuries.

01C What were they living in before? Should they be 'given' better housing? Sounds like a welfare mentality. Believe me, they'd be better off improving their own lot than waiting for someone to hand them something.

01D Well ... you go right ahead and make them your "subjects" or annihilate them or whatever you got the testicular fortitude to do. Good luck with that.

03 Maybe they'll get 'voted out' in seven years as your buddy Zit has predicted. That's actually how you are supposed to 'get your way' in a Democracy. Voting ... not terrorism. If shifting demographics mean new majorities are going to come into power that means they are doing something right.

04 It's rather absurd for a supporter of International Terrorism, the abuse and subjugation of women/children and the exploitation of poor Arab nations for slave labor should be talking about what is "fair".

We've been forced to deal with the various ME despots because we had to ... you know, to feed our energy requirements and develop markets for our weapons. There are aspects to these dealings which are rather unsavory. But, that's life in the big city.

Composed of largely Christian nations, Western Civilization's ties to Israel are more cultural than economic. The territories in dispute were Jesus's stomping grounds and visiting Christians no doubt feel less likely to get beheaded by Israelis than your somewhat agitated brethren.

As an 'Atheist-Evolutionist' I don't really give a hoot. You know,'let the strong survive' sort of thing. I really don't want to see anybody get hurt, but at the same time, I see Jews and Muslims, clinging to their ancient religions, as Primitives and thus not amicable to diplomatic solutions or the application of reason.

I'm not sure how much "site selection" took place. The "Holy Land" is the Holy Land and all you holy rollers think you own the place. Grow up, get a life and join us here in the 21st Century.
