My concern is that non-whites finish taking control of this country and that the UK falls to muslims, all of which has been predicted by reliable sources. As for America, prepare for minority status by 2042, if not sooner. Enjoy, you made your beds and now you'll lie in it.

Have you seen one of IANS' looney posts where he said if he only converted one person away from Christianity that all the time he's spent ranting on Topix was worth it?
No, and neither have you.

Here an exhaustive search of Topix-dot-com using the parameters "aint necessarily," "one person," and "convert." There is nothing like what you claim there. Feel free to vary the parameters if you like a repeat the search - perhaps substituting "anybody" for "one person," or "converted" for "convert" :
https://www.google.com/#hl=en&tbo=d&s...

I have no misapprehension about you or any other theist here learning anything or converting to anything. You are considered goners.

I have explained many times why I am here, and it has nothing to do with converting the likes of you. Here is one such occasion:
http://www.topix.com/forum/religion/atheism/T...

The more alert Christians among you will notice that you're not on this list of reasons to post on the Topix atheist threads. You'll find yourselves mentioned in item [5]

If this is atheist school, the teaching we do for one another is the lecture section, and you are the lab section. Your principle function is to be yourselves, and show us what a lifetime of faith-based thought and religious teaching can do for a person. We observe you and see firsthand just what quality of human it generates.

Look at how you lie shamelessly - you just lied about me. That character flaw runs rampant among you theists, something that I was not aware of before my Topix experience.

This is atheist school. Thanks for all you do.

Hi, Catcher. Hope all is well.I haven't been on here in ages. Hope you had a nice Christmas/Holiday. I still have long and very heart felt letters from TLeary, he was really a gentle person who had a very interesting life. I can't bring myself to delete them... our conversations were long and sweet. It truly broke my heart when he died. If you ever want to know what his last deepest thoughts and feelings were, I can always email them to you...Anyway, people are not always as they appear on here. Henry was a sweet and gentle man and I wish him well wherever he may be.(:
Agreed. Henry's still my Facebook friend. I didn't want to delete his account.

I'm sure that you were aware that his son Harrison had just died months earlier. Had you seen the YouTube of Harrison playing Oye Como Va on lead electric guitar. Henry was very proud of him.


And did you see the responses of the Christians first to the news that Harrison was dead, which Henry brought us, then to the news that Henry was dead, which we learned from his sister? It was utterly repulsive. They behaved like jackals, gloating over each of them being in hell. I am not exaggerating. I'm sure that others here can confirm that, perhaps you as well.

Anyway, welcome back.

IANS, I loved your list so much that I decided to copy it and add some reasons of my own :D

<partially quoted text, written by other topix poster>
REASONS TO POST ON TOPIX

[1] Learn from and share with one another. This is theist, atheist, talent, law, interpretation, bigotry, comedy, hypocrite, science and troll school; We have many gifted, as well as, many special minds here.
[2] Sway any possible uncommitted lurkers or future readers. Into what? Your guess is as good as mine.
[3] Practice and teach the formulation of better and more cogent arguments.
[4] Practice and teach writing, reading and comprehension skills.
[5] Observe the parade of theists, atheists, illiterates, racists, addicts, trolls, comedians and other assorted personalities, professional and otherwise - I'd pay for that.
[6] Fellowship with other theists and friendship with others. There haven’t (been) too many venues for this (atheism and mockery) in the past<-->(only most forums on earth).
[7] Entertainment - it's fun.
<end of partially quoted text, written by other topix poster>

My own additions, for now;

[8] Study & research.
[9] Exercise - way better than sit ups.
[10] Exploring alternate realities.

Peace, love and apple pies <3

The global elite want to cleanse the entire West of Christianity - Europe, Russia, Australia, and north America.
Would that it were true.

The "global elite" are √ľberconservatives that see the rest of us as living capital, like livestock, but able to serve them in more ways. Do you think that that is an exaggeration? I mean it literally.

What could be more useful to such people than religion? Christianity even uses the metaphors of livestock: the Good Shepherd and his flock.

Christianity teaches the slave values, perfect for a sheep. Your priests have taught you to consider yourself dirt - failed and unworthy flesh - just like a slave.

A slave is taught to be without will or spirit - to be submissive - and to never stand up for himself. I'll bet that you are good at taking a punch in the face and offering your other cheek.

Meekness is not a virtue except meekness in a slave in the eyes of his master.

People who love you teach you independence, and to think for yourself. They teach real virtues like courage, integrity, fortitude, compassion, and justice, not being a spineless doormat. That's what somebody that want to exploit you teaches you.

That's what your church teaches you. Worshiping is for slaves, too. Look at the posture: Get down on your knees. Divert your gaze, close your eyes, and put your unworthy head down. Put your hands together in a begging posture, and begin mumbling to the ceiling fan in a whiny, victim voice. Let your lower lip tremble, your voice break, and your tears flow. Grovel like an insect and beg the ceiling fan to protect you from invisible devils. Tell the fan how worthless you are, how meaningless you are in comparison, and how lucky you feel to not be stepped on and extinguished like the unworthy cockroach that your bible tells you that you are. Beg he who you think made you human for mercy for the crime of being human.

How is this not perfect for the purposes of the elite? Why would they wipe that away?

You forgot quite a few other freedoms guaranteed by the First Amendment. How about freedom of speech, of the press, to petition the government with grievances, and to assemble peaceably? Oh,and freedom *from* religion.

They all come before guns in the Bill of Rights.

This is pretty cartoonish.

Also, what difference should it make to an atheist how Christianity defines a good or bad atheist? The church has published its opinion of atheism in its holy book, and it's pretty hostile to us.

And finally, how can you be a bad atheist, even if you are a bad person? You might be an idiot, antisocial, and have body odor, but if in the area of belief in gods, you've rejected them all, you've done as well as is possible.

BTW, I found your source - Urban Dictionary, definition 2, at http://www.urbandictionary.com/define.php... . It also had a definition of a "Good Atheist" that you left out of your post. Here it is:

"A person who has read and studied thoroughly the concepts of science and religion. He/She has come to the conclusion that there is no supreme being and therefore does not believe in any god or gods. In spite of this however they are open to the concept and enjoy having mature, intellectual debates on the issue without being critical or condescending."

I do not consider that a good model. It serves your purposes, not ours.

Science isn't the reason for atheism. Rational skepticism is.

Why study Christianity? A casual exposure to the brutality and irrationality in its bible, and the hypocrisy, scapegoating and anti-scientism in its church is sufficient.

Most atheists have not come to any conclusion about gods. They simply aren't interested in supported claims that they exist.

"Open to the concept"? What concept? God? Religion? I'm not interested in hearing about your god or your religion at all. What's to discuss? Been there, done that. I'd rather discuss your church, what is happening to it, and why.

"Mature, intellectual debates on the issue without being critical"?
That's inane. The essence of debate is defense of one position and criticism of its alternatives.

As far as condescension goes, sorry, but its the Christians who need to be brought down a peg. Faith is not a virtue. You call yourselves more spiritual and more moral. Both claims are shams.

If telling you so is condescending, then mea culpa.
