Were you raised by Christian parents?
If you had been raised by Hindu parents, do you think you would be Hindu?
If you had been raised by Buddhists, do you think you would be Buddhist?

Pretty amazing that people who are raised in a religion are all certain that their religion is right and that the others are wrong.

Oh, but I'm sure you are one the lucky ones who actually was raised in the right religion. Unlike everyone else who also thinks they were the lucky ones.

15,000 religions in Human history. Wow, you lucked out.

You do that (pray).

That way, I know you are not doing something useful.

Or worse, doing what many of your fellow True Believers™ do all too often: beat the crap out of gays, picket women's clinics preventing women from getting health care, abusing children and hiding the abuse to "protect the church" or other heinous things your cult is well known for doing.

So you keep on praying-- in fact? I suggest you avoid all other activity.

What an evil person you are, here.
Did you ever work on the Sabbath day? According to the buybull, that is a sin worth being killed for.

I reject any concept of "sin" that cannot be defined using real-world terms.

Until and if they prove with actual facts, their god is real? They have no right to define "sin".

I've been thinking alot lately about how you can not believe in God. I been thinking how i would feel if I never believed in an after life. God tells us in the bible to not fear death. I just don't see how if you are an atheist, how you can not fear death. I mean, you believe that once you die, you die. I don't believe in heaven or in hell. How can you be satisfied with not living eternally. I mean, if you at least believed in God, you would have an after life or something to look forward after you die!
/QUOTE

Isn't sickening that these godbots have no issue with the facc that their tyrant is alleged to have ordered innocent people killed for working on the Sabbath, Masturbating, or because King David took a census?

Indeed.

And they quite ignore the command to murder their children, just for the "sin" of back-talking.

But are all too happy to keep the command that abrogates gays?

They truly are hypocrites: cherry-picking here and there, to conform with the things they hate.

If all you are going to do is cut and paste the same comment over and over again, at least get the damn spelling right you nitwit.

It's CONFLICTED not convicted.

No one "feels" convicted about anything.

They pick rules that much more comfortable to them to honor and things that rules that are comfortable to them to ignore.

Have you noticed, that they also pick the rules that allow them to continue to hate people they really want to hate anyway?

Sonya, when you claim that God has done things for you and that he's working through you, it's the same as saying that everyone who belongs to a different religion is better than you.

Think about it.

You got a nice job because God helped you get it.
Meanwhile, your co-worker Hitesh is a Hindu. God wants to punish him for breaking the first commandment. Yet, Hitesh has the same job you have. He must be a much better person to earn this job despite God not liking him while you got it because God gave it to you.

You go and work at a soup kitchen to help the homeless. That's nice. God is "working through you". Of course the guy standing next to you is Mike the Atheist who's there on his own accord. He's there because he feels a sense of personal responsibility to help his fellow man. He doesn't expect to go to heaven for it. He's not afraid he's going to hell if he doesn't do it.

The more the religious talk about God's effect on their lives, the less important their lives become.

Tell me, do you pray? Do you think God listens to prayers?

How many Catholics in the world prayed for John Paul 2 to get better? Is he still Pope? Or did he get sick and die?

It gives them the excuse to feel better about themselves and their hate.

The atheists don't believe in god for the same reason you theists don't beleive in leprechauns. We are honest and we can face our own mortality honestly like adults.

Atheists and theists do not argue over the merits of believing in aliens on Pluto, or leprechauns. We rarely dispute what is or is not valid evidence for something outside the scope of religion (death denial). Theists prove every day that they can and do use normal reasoning. They can even serve on juries! It is ONLY in matters that conflict with the theists cherished death denial mythology that these disagreements arise. This clearly proves the hypocrisy and dishonesty of the theist, attempting to protect their cherished beliefs.
