If you keep saying he does not exist, then why do you waste your time with this? No job? No life? No hope? No brain? Which is it, you fool?
More projection.

<quoted text>Silly child, the Bible claims that the God of the Bible is the only Deity, therefore there can be no "Satan". After all, the Bible points out that ALL evil comes from God, anyway...

Isaiah 45:7 I form the light, and create darkness: I make peace, and create evil: I the LORD do all these things.

Amos 3:6 ... Shall there be evil in a city, and the LORD hath not done it?

Lamentations 3:38 Out of the mouth of the most High proceedeth not evil and good?

The myth of Satan was invented after the children of Israel spent time in the Babylonian captivity and were exposed to dualistic beliefs concerning a good God and an evil God.
Well said.

<quoted text>Jesus does not show up anywhere in the Bible. He is a character in the New Testament only.
Yes, agreed. However, my understanding was that when the Word of God is mentioned in the OT, it sometimes refers to the Word as being Jesus, but I could be wrong and often am :)

Nope. The truth doesn't bother me at all. Jesus never claimed to be God.
You hate that no one is buying your lies about God and Jesus.
But Jesus didn't just talk about being the Messiah, He demonstrated the power of God -- His power -- through many "signs and wonders." He revealed His authority over creation by turning water into wine, and by commanding storms to cease -- and cease they did. He revealed His compassion for people by healing multitudes, restoring sight to the blind, hearing to the deaf, and health to the sick. He raised people from the dead. Finally, after Jesus was crucified and buried, He physically arose from the dead and appeared afterward to more than 500 people. In every phase of His life -- from His conception to His resurrection -- Jesus fulfilled prophecies made hundreds of years beforehand, convincing those around Him who knew and believed the Scriptures that He was the Messiah.

I believe it

<quoted text>Hmm, there is some evidence that there MIGHT have been a person named Jesus (or at least the Aramaic name that would have been transcribed into Greek as "Jesus"). However, there is NO ->OBJECTIVE<- evidence that he was anything other than just another Jewish revivalist preacher.

Any claims that he was a god are PURELY subjective in nature.
Well... Yeah, if you're gunna bring logic into it...;p

<quoted text>Many religious scholars insist that Jesus drove a Honda, but he didn't like to talk about it.

As proof, they cite a verse in St. John's Gospel where jesus tells the crowd;

"For I did not speak of my own Accord..." - John 12:49
There were Hondas 2013 years ago? I knew I chose the right car!
It's not all bad news from you after all...

I'm not sure it matters, actually, in the scheme of things.

Then explain to the class how atheism is a "religion." What are its rituals? Where to atheists gather to worship the non-god? Why don't atheists have tax-exempt status?
Care to explain?

That's right, it's not.

Atheists already have First Amendment rights, along with every other citizen in this country. No atheist would ever claim atheism to be a religion; that's just a blatant lie.
No sweets. It does happen.

I have been participating on this forum for a long while.. This afternoon I stood by my mothers bedside as she took her last breath in this world. She was a christian and believed that she would be entering heaven; now I dont know if there is a heaven or a hell either one...what I DO know is that for all the debating, arguing insult and mud slinging about what is and isnt real and the truth and lies, shouldnt we as adults be able to accept the fact that others have the right to not believe as we choose to and not be condemned?..
I agree 100%
