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.

If that is true, how come Christians developed "so much affinity" with Jews?
Why they have become their "Natural protectors"?
How come Christians allow Jews to control their Media and their finances?
Somehow it does not make any sense?
It doesn't "make any sense" MUQ because it is not true. In fact, Christians have been persecuting Jews for the supposed execution of Jesus for centuries.

Whatever "affinity" or protectiveness we may feel for the Jews is simply the long overdue realization that they are Human Beings and no more responsible for 'killing Jesus' than you or I. We carry a burden of guilt for our ancestor's various cruelties.

Please check some of your other 'core beliefs'... you will find that many of them do not "make any sense" either. We may make a Skeptic of you yet!

Does that mean, you too recognize that you are a liar, and a weasel?

And, it's not accusation, it's proven. And you have proven it on this page.

According to Pew statistics. They always seem to indicate a slower decline in religion than the other pollsters, but even they indicate 'declining religiosity'.

And what does that say about the USA and USAmericans? Do 98% of USAmericans seriously believe there's an interventionist or Abrahamic god? That could be what's wrong with the USA - ignorance and not facing facts.

Religion = superstition
The truth will out - and it won't change whether people are ignorant or thoughtful.

And the balance on this thread , the prominence of so many atheists and many other polls suggest your favorite US statistic is misleading. Gallop suggest only 92% believe in any sort of god at all....

let alone one who sent a prophet to Earth.

It's funny really. You know, when you hear "the price of gold just went up" ... it really means the value of a dollar 'just went down'. Similarly, if Atheism is at 2%... that means Ignorance is at 98%. Not a good thing.

I wonder what the answer would be if the question was, "Do you seriously think a god sent a prophet to Earth"? If people thought about it, perhaps the USA is more than 90%'atheist'? Gods and pixies are obviously came from Man's imagination and religion is declining too.

At least the trend is in the right direction. The main thing is that people aren't discriminatory...

A poll last year suggested that only 54% of USAmericans would vote for an atheist for President. That sort of prejudice is surely wrong and must be harmful.

Faith and doubt seem like different sides of the same coin. We're probably 100% Atheist in everyone's 'heart of hearts' but are driven to posture and 'quack like a duck' in service of the real god, which is spelled EGO. I can think of no other word that better describes the desire to see one's own pitiful little persona perpetuated 'for eternity' when the rest of the Universe is clearly so transitory. But yeah ... such prejudice is wrong and certainly harmful ... and here we are doing our small bits to try to fix things up. Like cur dogs, the 'bots bite the hands that feed them.

Did you add "the wise" to your name, because people keep calling into question your wisdom? Figures.

For reminding you that you work for a liar-cult which has no proof of god and continues to lie to complete strangers online.

It doesn't matter what I say - you're mentally ill and can't think straight. Concentrate on proving the god your cult sent you here to lie to us about, instead of focusing on your bitterness.

I respect coal miners, they do a really difficult job. Saying this just tells me how much you have coal miners, and how much hate YOU have because of your worthless cult that teaches you to lie about god.

Your cult invented the idea of evil, remember, we can read it in your rag, you can't hide your hate.
