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.

Until you've proven the god that you choose to lie about, your halfwitted opinions about science are worthless.

Atheism isn't a religion. By calling it one, you simply insult your cult further.

Atheism is a lack of belief in god. You have to lie about atheism to make your cult look more trustworthy - sad immoral mental illness you suffer from.

Israel is the only open and democratic society of the Middle East and it is their priority to get rid of it first. The claim that Osama bin Laden was "created" by the U.S. is propaganda waged by extremists. The popular claim that 9/11 was done by the Mossad also originates from that same source and directly contradicts the fact that many islamo-extremists celebrated 9/11 as a victory against the Jewish/American "oppressor". Between 1989 and 1996 Islamic-Jihad in Sudan kills 4 Million people. Bin Laden and his Muslim Brotherhood friends Al-Zahawiri and Al-Bashir masterminded the largest genocide since Hitlers bloodthirsty rampage through Europe.

How poetic. I bet that was his biggest seller. Too bad he sold out to Mammon, huh? Maybe I should give him the 'benefit of the doubt' and just presume he lost his mind.

Nope. That's kind of how I had it pegged. Atheism is about as far away from a religion as you can get. Yet, you 'bots remain confused. Not surprising I guess. Y'all definitely ain't the brightest bulbs on the string <if you catch my drift>. Perhaps you can suggest another term that better illustrates A COMPLETE AND UTTER NON-BELIEF IN ANY TYPE OR FORM OF SUPERNATURAL PHENOMENON. And just so there's no confusion ...

Atheism is not a religion but can be termed as a belief. A religion is a belief, too. However in my experience I find then Atheists as the least deluded lot as far as truth matters are concerned.

This nation backed the Mujahadin against Russian back in the 80's. Some might suggest Osama bin Laden was with the "Freedom fighters" there. Same when we were shaking hands with Saddam supporting him against Iran.
With friends like us????
Lies Lies Lies.
Are you not confusing the contingency politics of national interests with emotional amicability? In cold war years, the US dreaded domino effect takeover by the communists more than anything else. The US policy then erred in ignoring other threats.

Erich Fromm, the spiritual atheist, said atheism was a religion decades ago. The Supreme Court's definition of a religion says it need not be based on a belief in the existence of a supreme being. In the 1961 case of Torcaso v. Watkins, the court described "secular humanism" as a religion.

LOL Haven't you heard how busy atheists have been busy setting up churches and conducting Sunday services for their congregations? The new atheism promoted by evangelist gurus like Christopher Hitchens, Richard Dawkins, etc, is just like old satanism with a new paint job, bubba.

We know what a man is made of, when he has to bring up an outdated court case in order to convince an atheist he doesn't know what an atheist is.

Atheism is not a religion. Now that you know this 100%, from an atheist, will you stop lying now?

Probably not - because religious liars have no morals.

All religious types just love their nonsense.

What price THINKING?

But most of all. What price INTELLIGENCE?

UN was formed as a result of defeating Nazi Germany and Japan.
There was co-existence of Communist countries and freedom countries. Then, the point is not about democracy and communism on the planet, as it is about not accepting aggressor nations like Germany and Japan.
But today, the aggressor nation is actually US, as it is so proven, that US wars to Vietnam and Iraq have demonstrated such. So, UN is not fulfilling the agenda. What is the point of Russia and China supporting aggressor nation US call on Syria by doing for US to take Syria weapons away, and also on North Korea and Iran by saying they cannot have nuke weapons?
This is purely looking at true facts--just what weapons of US have been doing, as they are mostly used and exercised after WWII, resulting huge massacre of people worldwide. This proves the weapons of US are too dangerous. When US is very much into aggression of all the time, countries find the needs of needing great weapons for protection. Why would Russia support aggressor US nation to say about North Korea and Iran, as the world security is degraded and threatened by US scheme of aggression warfare and weaponry?

In reality, that North Korean and Iran having nuclear weapons, as not aggressors, are more worthwhile, than US having many big, dangerous weapons, by reviewing and assessing from facts that have occurred.
Where is UN agenda and direction as of now?
It is still a free world-- free world means the people on the planet have free thinking, as which way the course of this world should be like, and global people can do according to their way of thinking to have their security. Nothing is true from UN any more since UN was formed. Russia and China have lost their direction of the position of implementing against Aggressor nations, like US as one.

As It is a free world, people of the world can believe and do their own positions in free thinking accordingly.
Believers and value holders can go to North Korea, Iran, Syria, and other countries under US threats, to build on stands of association ties, their defense, weaponry, warfare systems, businesses, in order to deal with the current world criteria and situations now for essentially needed outlook of the world, as UN and Russia and China, cannot do anything that matters since UN is lost.

A quicker, sharper, more intelligent, better educated atheist would have said "If it looks like a duck, walks like a duck and quacks like a duck, it could be a transitional crocodile." Alas, no one is ever going to accuse you of being quick, sharp, intelligent or educated, bubba.

BTW I did notice that your recent posts indicate you seem to have a better handle on your Tourettes Syndrome these days. Kudos.

Had any atheist actually said any such tripe, we would immediately think "religitard troll". As you are the one who has said it, "religitard troll" doth spring to mind.

Also "If it looks like a duck, walks like a duck and quacks like a duck, it is a duck, and not a religion. The atheist "system" that you fools claim* as a religion, is as non-existent as your Jewsus.

Not one of us, has ever claimed or known even one iota of that system, which begins and ends as yours.

Atheism is NOT a religion, that is why it will replace religion!!

This is fantastic, a thing which does not even have a positive definition will replace religion.

What wastage of logic and reason, these people make.
