You've made a half-dozen statements there.

You've not provided links or copies of where he said any of that.

Don't misunderstand me, please - I am not claiming that he didn't.

Just that you've not shown that he did.
No those are his claims. I'm waiting for the evidence to prove them. You know this but you like to twist things aground a bit.

Name them and provide evidence they want a Christian Theocracy.

Well here's the evidence that you called Chess Jurist a child molestor because he was atheist (and the fact that he crushed your creationist talking points)

Atheists KNOW that God is....REAL. They're just RUNNING FROM HIM because they want to be free to choose for themselves how to live. And that inevitably means thay want to be 'free'....to sin.. whenever they want to.

Nope. What I know, as an atheist, is that no evidence has been provided to support any belief in a "god".

Let us know when you have some.

Yeah, that must be it. Somehow you twist reality to fit your f*cked up Creationist model of the world.

Just like how you folks deny fossils. You even deny the definition of atheism - a lack of belief in god.

If we're running from "him" as you say, doesn't there actually have to be a "him" to run away from???!?

I don't know who can pull you out of your depths of ignorance...

----------

I am sure you know the answer to your question. But you need for some reason to test me. Why people in a certain area are prone to certain diseases or to suffer from an act of nature, while in other areas they do not apply? It falls within the perpective of being on the wrong place at the wrong time or to belong to a people who have not developed their intellect enough to fight diseases with their know-how. The point is that there is no reason to blame God with anything of the sort.

You're an idiot for believing the earth is 6000 years old, when fossils exist.
