Go away you lying scum, nobody wants to join your failed and ridiculous cult of similar liars.
Prove that I said ALL atheists are child molesters and Nazis. You talk about proof and you project so much now prove yourself. If you don't, that makes you a liar, scum, and a low life. We shall wait.

And since when does Shana, or anyone else, have to justify their opinion by describing what they've "done for this world", and what does that even mean?
Again it doesn't matter about what you consider evidence. It's not like you did those experiments. Many religious people have done great things but all you can do is bring out what they have done wrong. But my argument is, it's their right to believe like its yours not to. So why does it matter?

Everyone has the right to believe anything they want.

Apologies to Ricky Gervais...
So apparently putting down what people believe is your method of comedy? Well you're acting dumb. But again, what have you done for people? Probably nothing.

Stupidity deserves to be put down and you are a prime example of stupidity.

Godbots come to these threads to spread pure BS and then for scream for respect and then wounder why you don't get it.

What BS did I spread? Am I preaching to you? Am I trying to convince you about religion? I believe stupidity comes from you since you assume too much. Lol! Again, what do you gain from it? I don't care if you respect me or not, I just wonder why you spend so much time on people who believe. Why does it matter? I don't care if you believe or not, but I do care about the freedom to do so. Lol! Do you care about your freedom?

Unbelievers don't have to get rid of anything.

Fundamentalists have painted themselves into a rapidly-shrinking corner, and the whole mess is dying a rapid (if long overdue) death, all by itself.

Wanna know what's killing off your nonsense even faster than you are?

Google.

You're right, I didn't do "all those experiments". I don't need to.

Drop a thermometer into boiling water, you'll get a reading of 100°C.

Every time.

Create enough friction in inflammable material, you'll get fire.

Those are two that I have done, BTW.

You'll lose because science works. Prayer doesn't.

Nope. Just that he said it better, so I paraphrased him.

Again, what does someone else's life have to do with whether they're right?

True. The internet is killing off religion. Religion can only survive in a bubble. Christianity is trying to adapt to new circumstances, but cannot evolve quick enough.

Again you hope. So I guess you believe everything posted on Google? I bet you believe Wikipedia too! Lol! No one is dying out, to many things will happen in the future like Hispanics being the majority and you know how religious they are.

Again who is competing with you? I don't care what you believe or don't believe, it's about people's choice. Why does it matter so much to you why people believe in God? There's nothing you can do about it. What have you done to help others?

The point is, it shouldn't matter what people believe. It shouldn't matter if you don't believe. It's the freedom of religion or from religion that is the issue. That alone is enough for all of us to choose. Why should anything else's matter?

If you believe everything that is being posted. Most posts about religion are done by atheist and atheist are still the minority. No offense because that's not my purpose. My purpose is why should you care. That's all.

I used "Google" as meiosis - presenting a part as a symbol of the whole.
Like "Hand" for a member of a crew, or "Head" for the whole cow.

The point is, instant access to information is killing fundamentalism in a most heartening way.

I already pointed out that it doesn't matter.

You may believe in anything you want - I don't care.

But if you're raising fundamentalist kids, they're gonna lose to my kids.

Because in the real world, science works.

Oh great, you are using the educational barrier. Hispanics, the minority will soon be the majority in 2042 and I guarantee meiosis is happening already for that to occur. But here's the point, what difference does it make? You live your life, I live mine, and others live there's. Again, it's their right to choose.

Why is this a competition to you? What will happen if one of your kids believe in God? Are you going to make fun of him/her? Do you really give them the choice? That is pretty immature there.

You're becoming tiresome.
I don't give a rat's patoot whether Hispanics are a majority.
I speak Spanish, and have no difficulty with 'em.
What "educational barrier"?
And even though I gave you a #ucking definition, you still don't know what "meiosis" is.
