<quoted text>I find it difficult to refer to the lack of belief in a deity (atheism) as a religion. Atheism does not carry with it many of the hallmark features of a religion. It is a belief system in a sense, though it is comprised of lack of belief.
Primarily, I see that atheists feel a need to defend their lack of belief in order to not be overrun by those that believe. Believers are like little children with a scab. They can't leave it alone. They have to pick, pick, pick at it. Considering history, when believers pick a scab there is a lot of blood shed.
Funny, I have never seen any evidence of Dawg trying to convert anyone to atheism. This is not to say he hasn't provided well grounded arguments in support of his position, but if that changed the way you think it would be on you and not on Dawg. Sounds to me like you may have some unspoken doubts about certain things.
I bet if you were to ask Norton about Islam, he would make a number of claims regarding its lack of being the true religion. Where it would get interesting is how much those same negatives could be applied to Christianity. This would be especially true in a debate with someone like Norton. You see how he posts nearly back to back contradictory statements and when called on it defends his position by calling others ignorant. Norton sees the stupidity in his statements, he just can't bring himself to admit it. I would say he would bring the same to the table in comparing Islam to Christianity or Christianity to any other religion.
If athiests are trying to convert people, and I don't really believe the majority are, then they aren't very good at it, because they represent a small portion of the population that isn't growing by leaps and bounds.
OK smart guy! What have I contradicted? I would not debate Christianity and Islam because it would be a no-win situation. They have their belief and I have mine. I hate the word religion because there are a lot of religions. Christianity is the belief in Jesus Christ and, yes, the only truth. Isn't it strange how you people that don't believe in God keep talking about! Could it be that God is dealing with you? Hmmm! How could an atheist try to convert anyone to atheism? They have nothing to stand on!

OK..........Nobody can live a sinless life, because Adam and Eve disobeyed God and ate the fruit from the Tree of Life. If they had not disobeyed him, things would have been different. God drove man out of the Garden of Eden and there was a flaming sword to guard the tree of life. It's all right there in the book of Genesis. The serpent deceived Eve into eating the fruit so God told the serpent he would crawl on his belly all the days of his life. etc., etc.........!
I guarantee you that during the Tribulation that meteorite you are talking about will seem like nothing. It will be a horrible time like nothing ever seen before. You have a free will..........to believe it or not. It's your choice. Satan has a hold on you and are too stubborn to let go.
CHEERS!
The tribulation is a modern phenomenon never mentioned by Christ or his disciples. Your God tortures people. Even if they are disbelievers, it's downright narcissistic, cruel, and mindless nonsense.

This might be a generational thing, and I am certain you were taught this nonsense by someone—but tell me this, did Christ seem like he was mean to you? Why is your God so damned vicious?

He's a loving God. Preaching about him as if he were Adolf Hitler suits no one, and you will never convert people by making God into a brute. He gave us Free Will. You had the Free Will to either read the scriptures and study theology, or to be a follower of useless tripe.

If you know verses that can back up your arguments, besides the so-called flood, Sodom and Gomorrah—both done for genetic purification, and not just to rid the earth of sinners—then please, show me the verse. Christ came to show you the love of his message, not to placate a bunch of really bad theologians.

Yet you can call me a blasphemer and condemn me to hell with the rest. One day, when the time comes, I will prove to you the reality of God's word—not this nonsense you call Religion. It's pure zeal.

That level of derogatory response and attack is what one would expect to see when one has nailed it on the head. You are clearly everything I have said and more. You don't even have the wherewithal to provide any form of supporting evidence for you statements. Just rant and attack. Based on what I have seen you take this approach whenever you are confronted with your intellectual, moral and philosophical superiors. Tsk, tsk, tsk. And I had such hopes that you would be somehow different.

I have pointed out your contradictory statements. Are you too ignorant to understand the written word.

I will sum it up. You said that God was in control. Then you posted very soon after that post, that man was in control. You can't seem to get you stories straight. How do you expect to have any credibility at all. I admit, at this point, on this forum, you have blown any chance at credibility to pieces, but God bless you, you just keep trying.

Norton, have I ever said that I don't believe in God? No. I am just not a fanatic like you. I don't follow your brand of witchcraft Christianity.

Why is it so strange to you that an intelligent person would try to learn as much as they can about a subject before accepting or rejecting it. Oh, that is right. You just swallow everything whole like a good little lamb.

I agree with your last point, if not for the reasoning, at least for the conclusion.

It's a good thing here on "topix" you all can hide behind a fake name and picture because in the real world if you have any family and/or friends they would be so ashamed and embarrassed of you all on how you act and disrespect people on here. If you all would step back at look at yourselves you would see just how childish and stupid you are making yourselves look. But hey I guess when your life is so boring, lonely and dull that this is your primetime pastime and pride of joy,,, we all should feel sorry for you. There is this amazing thing called "life" out there that does exist and can be amazing. You all should get off your @sses, away from your PC, put away all your fears, stop ridiculing others and get out and enjoy it sometime. With that said I am out for I thought this would be some kind of intelligent conversation but I just see now it is the battle of the losers with no life other than to belittle other people, try to be king of the idiots and try to feel smart and good. May you all find better things to do in life that will take away your fears, your bitterness, your loneliness and bring a little happiness into your lives. Yes you all can bash this all you want, it won't matter. It will not change the reality of this post on how you all are.

Atheism may not be "growing by leaps and bounds," but nevertheless it is growing, worldwide and in the United States.

According to a WIN-Gallup International poll reported August 2012, religiosity worldwide is declining while more people say they are atheists. In the United States, a growing number consider themselves non-believers.

http://www.csmonitor.com/World/Global-News/20...

(I will point out that "atheism" is not monolithic. There are various levels of non-belief. For example: agnostics,'weak' atheists, and 'strong' atheists. Simplistically, those levels correspond to "not sure there is a god," "possibly there is a god," and "no way is there a god.")

God does not play dice with the universe." —Albert Einstein.

Some would beg to differ.

"In our experiment, we show that any theory in which there is significantly less randomness is destined to fail: quantum theory essentially provides the ultimate bound on how predictable the universe is," said Dr. Wolfgang Tittel, associate professor and GDC/AITF IndustrialResearch Chair in Quantum Cryptography and Communicationat the University of Calgary in a release.

Dr. Renato Renner, Professor at the ETH in Zürich added, "In other words, not only does God 'play dice,' but his dice are fair."
