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.

You need to be concentrating on how horrifying and painful Hell is going to be for you----and I don't have a burden to prove anything and this gripes your ass.
Your imagination does not threaten me. You cannot scare me into believing in your mental illness.

This is the problem with the mental illness of creationism - it's sufferers are like brain dead zombies.

What are you going to do about it? Continue to worry that you are wrong?
I'm going to keep reminding you over and over again that you in fact a simple minded liar with no proof of god.

We should ask why a creationist is in the atheism forum in the first place. if I was afraid I was wrong, I would be in the creationism forum.

You're wrong. The bible says I have no burden at all to prove God exists. I know this angers you but it really does say that. If you had read the Bible and understood it, you would know this.
You have no proof of your god and that is why you fail again and again in this forum.

When you become brave enough to prove your god, or admit at you are a liar, you will reach personal salvation.

The bible says that all atheists are fools, and for this reason alone it's an outdated piece of garbage cult propaganda.

It doesn't anger me...I already know what your bible says about it...unfortunately when you are speaking to people who understand personal responsibility this will not and does not work as an excuse. I know that you don't understand personal responsibility because your bible doesn't teach that, but people in the real world understand that we are responsible for the things that come out of our mouths and to have trust we have to make sure that the things that we say to people are truthful and if they are just opinion and they cannot be proven then its our responsibility to admit that and then take responsibility for our decisions to feel how we feel.

You don't follow what your bible says so it does nothing for you to say that the "bible says". If you followed it at all then you wouldn't be on this forum at all right now.

This is the creationist logic we have to deal with.

The bible says telling the truth is important, but the burden of proof is not???

Flawed cult.

LOL Science “addicts” such as yourself meaning atheists? The modern scientific revolution was founded and launched by “godbots”, bubba.

Does this mean your atheist “approved” reading list never publishes anything by snake oil salesmen trying to scam you into believing the impossible, such as the idea that something can evolve from nothing....?

Exactly why it's not a 'revolution' more like a 'devolution'. It's twisting of the facts to fit their <godbot> agenda and they are extremely clever about it. I can see why you have been fooled. It must sell A LOT of books.

If I smell snake oil ... I run the other way. I am aware that, to one degree or another, a lot of media tries to manipulate us. You must be constantly wary and the foe is getting more subtle and better at their game.

"Nothing" is a very misleading term. Even mere Humans have become adept at turning 'matter-into-energy' so there's nothing surprising about Nature turning 'energy-into-matter' given time (something someone has convinced you doesn't exist). What does 'energy' or 'potential' look like? What about 'dark matter'? Nothing comes immediately to mind.

I personally grapple with concepts like 'vacuum energy','virtual particles', etc. I've always thought 'empty space' must have something in it for radio waves to propagate through. Something like "the ether" ... turns out that's not too far off. Whatever it is ... it ain't magic ... and it ain't 'nothing'.

No. It's clear there are a lot of Atheists who have abandoned belief for other than purely scientific reasons. As you have pointed out "there are many paths to Enlightenment". This is a situation where "the enemy of my enemy is my friend" so I certainly welcome all Atheists regardless of how they awoke. No matter how or why, it's good to know Science is there, an impenetrable shield against which you can flail your wet-noodle-of-faith without effect.

Things that don't exist leave no evidence. The people who write holy books know this. So that is why your burden was removed and by whom ... the people that wrote the holy book. It's really not Rocket Science.

Why don't you become brave and provide proof? Are you too scared it is false?

That's why your cult has no morals - it doesn't even follow its own rules.

If the bible says truth is important, why do you run like a coward when asked to present it?

You've had since the beginning of time to provide proof, so your sentence "If you got proof" is plain stupid.

There is no "if" you're just idiot liars who are too cowardly to admit you work for a cult that is losing members every day.

Jesus said that. Hindu holy men, Buddha, Moses, Isaiah, Jeremiah, Lao Tzu, Muhammed, all the great religious leaders have said essentially the same thing for at least the last 8,000 years. YOU have to do the asking, seeking, and knocking. Nobody else can do it for you, bubba. And,
You responded with:

Again, if YOU aren't willing to ask, seek, and knock, you will remain as blind, deaf, and ignorant as you are today for the rest of your useless, pathetic life.
What is useless and pathetic is self delusion. Basically, you've still got nothing. So keep on keeping on.

Type into your browser "Who are the modern Jews" by Scott Stinson to learn the anthropology of those claiming to be direct descendents to the "Semitic Israelites"
These people are related to Khazars and the Hittites and have nothing to do with the "chosen bloodines" that they have bulls**ted this nation into believe. They scemed the federal reserve, they schemed Britain into stealing Palestine, and have plundered this nation into debt while having "The Goyim" fund and die for the genocide of Muslims and confiscation of their land and resources.
I cannot paste the link because topix keeps removing it because it is damning evidence with references right out of "The jewish encyclopedia" itself. It's all a lie and the joke is on us while they further corrupt and deprave our youth while at the same time are out to bring about armageddon for their lies and God extortion. They are the hatred and they are the liars. For "non semitic Israel"
It's all a lie....

You miss the point that Jewish cultures and religion are not genetic source specific. Jewish are people and they do take pride in their inheritance and perseverance, no matter how these came about! even according to their faith, a person can be Jew if his mother is was a Jew! If we take your line seriously then there was nothing called Arabic culture before 1400 years.

2K years ago Jews were in Medina and rest of today's Saudi Arabia. Maybe many of today's Saudis are mainly descended form Jews.

So who would you blame more for these Mideast genocides? Judaism or Christianity? True Christians want NOTHING to do with these senseless wars for those that are NOT semitic jews.
Judaism prints our dough (Bernanke) and taxes it (Lois Lerner) while Israel spies on all of us (NSA) and aipac greases the pockets of our sold out polititians and judges. Why do you think they allow govts to sexually deprave our youth? For profit and culture destruction.
Which middl-east genocide? Do you blame Jews for the Sunni/Shia carnage?

“For the scientist who has lived by his faith in the power of reason, the story ends like a bad dream. He has scaled the mountains of ignorance, he is about to conquer the highest peak; as he pulls himself over the final rock, he is greeted by a band of theologians who have been sitting there for centuries”(Robert Jastrow, God and the Astronomers, p. 107)

Atheism is just another religion, bubba. Atheists are no more "enlightened" than fundamentalist zealots and no less dogmatic about their belief system. Both are broad well worn paths to self delusion....not truth.
