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.

I might be an ignorant Bible scholar, but could you elaborate on your examples. You seem to imply that the Bible describes God being beaten by an iron chariot, that God forces people to eat their own children, and that God punishes men by having their wives raped in the street. Perhaps there is some portion of the Bible that I missed, but I don't remember those sections.
Sure thing, but I must warn you, we all have been there done that many times before, and the stock response of the religitard, is to try to invalidate the buybull's words or to just make like a leaf, and leave.

I predict that you will try to show us how the buybull doesn't say what the buybull says. I have a few things to finish first, then I will look up the scriptures using google. I live for the day when one of you lot will do it yourself, and then post a comeback.

Judges 1:19 And the Lord was with Judah; and he drave out the inhabitants of the mountain; but could not drive out the inhabitants of the valley, because they had chariots of iron.

Leviticus 26:27-29 27. And if ye will not for all this hearken unto me, but walk contrary unto me;
28. Then I will walk contrary unto you also in fury; and I, even I, will chastise you seven times for your sins.

29. And ye shall eat the flesh of your sons, and the flesh of your daughters shall ye eat.

2 Samuel 12:11 Thus saith the Lord, Behold, I will raise up evil against thee out of thine own house, and I will take thy wives before thine eyes, and give them unto thy neighbour, and he shall lie with thy wives in the sight of this sun.

Would you also like help with golden dipt hemorrhoids being used as a sacrifice to your god, so he would cure the 'roids that he inflicted?

Or the happy, happy, happy world of harvesting foreskins, as gifts to make a buybull god happy.

Or how unblemished a man's genitalia has to be for him to approach the buybull god's altar?

Or maybe how the only happiness n joy in the buybull comes from bashing babies heads in.

Heavenly jobs, because you will only be there, to make god happy.

Do you know what a bastard is? It's a conception or birth of a child from a couple who are not married, or haven't been married long enough, or is not the actual issue of the male member of the married duo. It's all about the timing of conception, women not cheating on the man, and not cheating the priest/witch doctor/spell casters out of their fee's to hitch the couple in holy matrimony.
Now you repeat yourself from post 15009 in order to reply to a different post.

Thanks for giving us wonderful scripture as you failed to support your irritated collapsing agenda of atheism.
ROFLMAO!!!!
Don't worry about it, I laugh at the bible too, a lot.

But no that is not what I quoted. I quoted nothing, I gave a link to the many versions of the buybull. Was there a Verse of the day, that you thought I had "quoted"?

I have never claimed perfection, but I did post it again, to the correct "reply" button. I quite often do compile several replies before posting them. You saw the results of my getting in a hurry to finish up, and get back to the good part of my life. Should I mention that you sometimes do not hit that reply button at all?

Just FYI, I do not have "atheism". I cannot have "atheism", no one can. It is not an "ism", it the specific lack of an "ism".

Let's see you just got here(again), you are unregistered, and >>> you <<< have decided that any more of my postings from now on, will be predicated on my belief that you are wrong? "So, if I believe you are wrong, I will not post responses to you?" Is that what you are saying?

Well, if I truly thought that you are doing my thinking for me, I just might fall for that shit, but since your thinking is not even in the same stratosphere as mine is ... uhm, no.

What a flicking self important ass you are, do you really think so highly of yourself?

How about we do it this way, if you really have confidence in your god, and your belief system, how about you start following your god's word, to the letter? All of it, not just the selected bits and pieces that your own spell casters have cherry picked to get you bending to their agenda?

It has nothing to do with me, or my reaction to you or your posts, so ...... practice what you preach, practice what you preach, religitard.

Now that we have that out of the way, how about you prove a hell exists?

People like you are modern day examples of why people were slaughtered in the Bible.
Those were the good ol' days I guess, when filthy atheist blasphemers , like yourself, were stoned to death. Would have been good CNN reporting to have seen that.
I can just see you clawing along the sides of Noah's boat, begging for mercy, trying to get onboard, just before drowning as punishment for your years of enjoying your willful mockery.
Oh well, eternal damnation and intense torture will be awaiting you once your pathetic and worthless life is over.
You horrid person.
Thank you for testifying on behalf of your Lord and Savior who commands you to love your brother even if he strikes you repeatedly.

I also want to thank you for judging on your God's behalf and wishing Hell and damnation to one of your fellow men.

You have helped to prove that the Bible is a worthless book, full of contradictions and fairytales and that the Religious among us are hateful, spiteful people and are the very whited sepulcher that your Christ spoke of.

It seems religion does not make you a good person although you speak loud and strong that you are better for your beliefs. I have no belief in a god although I was raised in the church. I do believe that Jesus' followers are the very ones who drive us to open our eyes, however. Once you the scales drop from your eyes the falsehoods and hypocrisy are more evident and you realize that they were there all along begging for sanity and reason to lift the burden of "faith" from your shoulders.

I have certainty in my heart that you are a bad person and your beliefs are bad for humankind. The sooner the scourge of theism is gone from the face of the earth, the better off we will be.

Another insight into the tormented heart of a GENUINE CHRISTIAN™. Oh well ... if it makes you feel any worse, I long for the "good ol' days" myself ... those happy times before everybody started gorging themselves on the Tree of Knowledge. Alas, that cat is out of the bag, no going back. Ignorance is bliss (they say) which should make you one of the few truly happy people on Topix! You have a strange way of showing it!

Basically, the only people who weren't "clawing along the sides" of Noah's magical boat were related to Noah. I wonder if you would have 'made the cut' and been found worthy of your monster-god's tender mercy. For some reason I tend to doubt it.

Anyway, you're an amusing creature ... a real anachronism ... here, let me offer you my other cheek ...

When is your fear of being wrong ever going to end, allowing you to stop requesting for proof? Are you unwilling to admit your faith in atheism is inadequate and very weak?
I really do pity your loss.
One doesn't need to "fear being wrong" when verifiable evidence is required before believing something is "right".

You only need "faith" (in the religious sense) when there is no evidence to support what you're being asked to 'believe'.

You'll understand this once you are burning with flames wrapped around you for eternity. And yes, I know you already know this but your stupidity keeps you retaliating against the truth.
Please, feel free to continue to persecute me. The Bible predicted it.
pointing out/drawing attention to your stupidity does not equal 'persecution'.

If you don't like having your stupidity pointed out and laughed at just keep it to yourself

When you are more confidence about your cult, you will post proof of god and then god will become part of scientific knowledge.

We will use god to help keep people warm, feed them, stop them getting ill.

All these things are more are possible, when you liars can prove your god.

But you can't and choose to spread your mental illness instead.

Your choice. Now take responsibility for it as the world changes.

The first lie is God.

The second lie is the threat of hell.

Now you you know that Atheists don't fear either of these lies, what will you say next?

Are Theists more or less 'rational' than Atheists? Be honest. Spare me the canned 'why certainty is irrational' explanation. Is it a sword that cuts both ways or not? Is Agnosticism the only rational philosophical principle? I hope not.
It is not the certainty that is irrational.

There are two ways one can be rational and believe with certainty in God. First, it is possible (at least in theory) that God might introduce Himself tou you. Although we have a right to view any such claim with extreme skepticism, we must also admit that someone could come to possess absolute certainty about God's existence through such an event.
Second, one could come to know that God exists through indirect evidence, i.e. through circumstances and phenomena that cannot be explained without positing God's existence. A great deal of what we know today, we know only through such indirect evidence. For example, we know that there was once an American president called Abraham Lincoln. We know this not because we ever met Lincoln, but because there is no other reasonable way to explain the existence of a universally accepted tradition that he lived. Whether direct or indirect evidence of God actually exists is a separate issue. The point here is that it is possible for such evidence to exist, and therefore we cannot a priori know that someone is irrational just because he claims to know that there is a God.
It is also possible the be rational and be uncertain if God exists, just as it is possible to be rational and be uncertain if any particular person, force, or object exists. Until one has either direct or indirect evidence, it is reasonable to remain unsure.
In contrast, it is impossible to be rational and know with certainty that God does not exist, just as it is impossible to be rational and know that any person, object, or force does not exist. Knowing with certainty that something does not exist requires first being aware of all things that do exist. This would mean simultaneously examining every cubic centimetre of the universe for the objects or forces in question. Because we cannot monitor every corner of the universe, we cannot reasonably declare the non-existence of anything -- including God.
Any student of history knows how many men have made fools of themselves proclaiming the non-existence of things: of a continent west of Europe; of a particle smaller than the atom; of a natural force besides gravity and magnetism. Atheism -- the state of knowing that God does not exist -- is inherently irrational.
