Well, I can understand a liberal or a super-conservative not liking Obama, seeing as he is one of the most >>centrist<< of Presidents we've had since before WW2. With the possible exception of Eisenhower....

.. and I can kind of understand someone so wrapped up in self, to not want sex--as sex tends to require cooperation of at least one other person.

But.....

.... not liking CHEESECAKE?

Are you ... INSANE?

Who does not like CHEESECAKE?

I mean-- I can almost believe in a GOD, simply because CHEESECAKE even exists ...!

Seriously....

I cannot disagree.
Most folk have a fairly strong sense of self, coupled with the natural self-doubt we also have.
This balance helps people to cooperate with each other-- the self helps them from becoming too subservient, and the self-doubt keeps them from over-dominating the cooperative experience.
However, in some cases, one or the other overwhelms a given person.
And then you either get someone deathly afraid of their own shadow (which you rarely see in a public venue like Topix) or else they are a bit overbearing-- just the sort of person who might come to Topix....
... <laughing>
I think this place does tend to self-select for the latter, don't you?

Absolutely.

People know that God is REAL. They just want to be 'free' to sin at will. Some 'freedom'. 'Spiritual slavery' is more like it.

Ive heard of this before. That Atheist doesnt believe in God just to free themselves from its preaching and sins. But ive spoken to some Atheists and some of them doesnt believe in God because the evidences are not yet that convincing. Either that or they still have doubts and questions on other religious preachings.

I know no such thing-- I would love it, if there were a benevolent deity watching out for humanity's future.

But there is no reason to think that-- none-- apart from mental sickness, of course.

As for sin? I do not sin-- not by any authority I recognize, such as the US Constitution.

Your bible? Not relevant-- legally, the bible is not an authority over anyone, least of all me.

That no establishment clause in the aforementioned US Constitution.

Indeed I know of >>no<< atheist who has turned to atheism because of fear of some retribution of some mythical god.

That's silly-- as silly as worrying about the Tooth Fairy.

There is zero reason to believe in a god-- none.

That's pretty much it-- if there is zero evidence for a god?

What's left after that?

The default is atheism.

Thats why i find it funny they are calling Atheists as escapers from sins and judgements. Oh well, these people, when they dont disagree with your belief they will always find a reason (no matter how lame it is) to throw at you :)

PS
Im no atheist.

I may or may not be an "atheist", depending on which of several definitions you choose.

It doesn't matter, really-- all I ask for, is proof for any and all claims made, before I'll conditionally accept them as valid.

That's it.

Simple, really-- not complicated in the least.

For proof, I'll accept anything that is both objective and repeatable/testable.(can be measured)

If it cannot be measured? It's not real--by definition.

But never mind all that-- I have yet to meet someone who believes in supernatural stuff, who does not have some moldy-old book that they think is an authority on the subject.

Why is that? Why is an old book required?

Why cannot these ... gods... make modern contact with people?

I never ever get an answer to that one...

I can mostly agree with that, but I would also have to point out that the vast majority of people do that - they will find something, ANYthing, that they can use to puff themselves up. Even atheists do it, claiming that the fact that they are atheists makes them SO much smarter than theists. The mere fact that, statistically speaking, they are most likely right has no bearing on the case.
As an atheist, I know that there are theists who are much smarter then me. But no matter how smart they are, it is hard to respect them, when 1-they claim that their god exist without evidence
2-defend books that call for sexism, hate, and intolerance,
3-post dumb things like saying that fossils were put on earth by the devil to deceive us.

LOL!

So you admit that within your ugly religion, that you love your satan-god more?

For you give your satan-god all the REAL power.

That is soooo FUNNY!

You are literally a satan-worshiper....!

False. I grew up in church, went multiple-times a week for most of my life.

Yet? After reading the >>whole<< bible? I became an atheist...

... you ought to try that: read ALL of the bible, not just the 1% you've been given to read.

It'll melt your ears...

Are you, really? I know of a large contingent of small kids, who were forced to attend church, and were subsequently molested by the church's leadership.... who were then whisked away to do it all again in another unknowing parish...

... where was your god THEN? Why did not your god STOP these pedophiles in their tracks, by showing the local police what they were doing?

Is that TOO MUCH to ask of your god? To help STOP child abuse in it's tracks, by helping the police find the perps?

Apparently...!
kayla wrote:

Well... your god certainly does HIDE himself from anything useful...

... how about all the STARVING KIDS around the world? Do you think THEY believe, as they die from starvation?

All that your god would need to do? Is... MAKE IT RAIN...

.. but apparently THAT is too much, too...!
kayla wrote:

Are all the little kids who STARVE TO DEATH going to hell too?

Just curious..... your god cannot FEED them, so I guess he doesn't like them either, so it's OFF TO HELL for them, too...

Yes... that is true. You appear to be one of the mean ones--

--- you happily condemn STARVING KIDS to an early grave-- then on to HELL FOREVER.

That >>is<< pretty mean of you...

I pity you a bit. I ma glad that I left religion at age eighteen. My awakening was when I read the book The Secret Origins Of The Biblehttp://www.amazon.com/Sec ret-Origins-Bible-Tim-Callahan /dp/0965504786, a book which exposed the many lies, contradictions, and the heartless nature in the Buybull. Even then I refused to be an atheist(I was 13 at that point)Then I watched the movie on the Scopes Monkey Trial and realized the extent of Christian nastiness. How these loving Godbots wanted to destroy a man's life just for teaching evolution. Then, I discovered the two contradictory stories of creation in the buybull.
At this point, my twin told me that he did not believe in God. He told me that belief in the creation was not consistent with belief in evolution. I called him a blasphemer, but he was right. The reality was that I was a atheist all but in name. The only thing that was stopping me from fully declaring myself was the thought of not having a divine being who punishes wicked people. It scared me then and still scares me now-the thought that evil people like Stalin and Ivan the Terrible could kill so many people and get away with their crimes.
When I went to college, I took a class in religion. My pro asked completely reasonable questions like; "If we have free will, then how could God know things in advance?"Why does a good God allow innocent children die? Why do we inherit original sin from what we did not commit
Watching xtians fumble and mumble in response was what convinced me to announce myself openly. I realize that scaring people to do good by the thought of hell has not stopped wars and genocides from happening. In fact, we've had less wars and oppression while we are getting less religious. I realized a truly just God would not allow for the deaths of newborn infants or allow people to be born with disabilities.

You just don't understand, blasphemer! Our lord heyzeus works in mysterious ways, maybe he likes it when innocent children die! Ever think of that one, you big smarty pants? Maybe he stares down logical contradictions in the face until they run scared!
