Well, since the Bible proves that Jesus is a false god, then your "Satan" must be working for the God of the Bible to keep people OUT of Hell...

100% correct!

This is why we live by faith now... Some folks think God is mean, they haven't seen the mean the that is going to happen. Wait until the 'Wrath of God' descends upon Earth. Every knee will fall to the ground in worship, believers and non-believers alike...

False.

If, by some ugly twist of horrid fate, your monster-terrorist god IS real and DOES end the world?

**I** will not bow to such a monster-- I might hork a lugi in his masochistic eye--but I won't BOW NOR KNEEL.

Kneeling is what SLAVES do. I'm not a slave.

So your claim, above? Is just an ugly display of your ugly ego.

When the Lord Jesus Christ returns upon the clouds of heaven, you will confess His Lordship. So stop speaking as a FOOL.

Nope. Not even then-- should the IMPOSSIBLE happen, and your ugly terror-god be real.

Not.

Even.

Then.

Never, will I admit your terror-god is a "lord".

Never-ever-- your god?

Is unworthy-- a MONSTER. An EVIL creation of insane and deluded fools.

And gullible idiots such as you?

STILL don't get it...

I can tell you why I personally didn't believe in God... Because I wasn't looking for God. My mind and heart were closed, so I looked for evidence to the contrary.

I am a firm believer that when one looks for something, they will find what they are looking for. A form of Representative Realism ( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Representative_r... ). A person's internal maps dictate what is meaningful to them as evidence of what's real or not. I believe that God changed my heart so that I would seek him out.

So I went from being agnostic, to believing in God. I can tell you that for me, it has created a happier life.

So what you are saying is that the human brain tends to see things that aren't there when we manage to coinvince ourselves that it is.

I am thinking it's cause ppl don't want to admit there is a higher authority to answer to after you die for the way you lived your life and things you did. People want to believe they can murder and steel and rape and if police never find them they get away with it, they don't want to admit to themselves this is not true and one day they will stand in front of the ultimate judge who knows all their secrets. That's too frightening of thought and so they deny it and call themselves an atheist.

Or is it because christians NEED to believe in something bigger because you cannot accept that death is the end.

That's not true at all. I was agnostic, and the thought to steal, murder, or rape never crossed my mind. I wasn't a non-believer because I wanted to "pretend that there is no god", as you seem to suggest, but simply for the fact that I didn't believe, and it didn't make sense to me.

I believe in God now, but when I didn't it was not for any of those reasons. Non-believers just as good and evil as believers. People are people. They are not atheists because they are despicable people, they are atheists because they don't believe. Nothing more.

i laughed when i read this, im not even joking, i dont see how anyone can possibly believe such things unless its been rammed down your throat from day one, in which case people will believe ANYTHING.

personally, as a young child i remember the day i asked my mum "how can people believe we were made by some wizard in a cloud?"
