Lemme ask you this: When you have sex, is a man present?
Always, since it's me and a woman, and I don't find that strange.

<quoted text>That's because there is no point to life without God. Knowledge and information is important. But until mankind finds a way to eliminate death, then all the theories in the world about how this universe and mankind came into existence is just mindless blather.

Death comes to everyone. Underline that. Death is the issue. And that is the reason why it does not matter how much knowledge there is, Religion will always be a top subject. Because religion is the only subject that deals with death and God. Science deals with life on earth and knowing. Science cannot compete with death. And that is why Science cannot compete with God. because most people believe after death, then God.
As
Seriously?!

Science can't deal with death?

Our life spans have tripled from just a few hundred years ago. Science is closing in on immortality as we speak.

REAL immortality.

The kind we can enjoy in the here and now. Not some empty promise that is impossible to verify and is, for all intents and purposes, an empty promise that causes people to waste the precious few years they have chasing a foolish dream.

And what makes you think that, even if there IS an afterlife, that your way is the only way to achieve it?
There are hundreds, if not thousands, of different ideologies that include an afterlife, and every one of them is just as sure that THEIR way into the afterlife is the right way-at least for them.

You're nothing special and neither is your religion, whatever the hell it is.

<quoted text>So what? I have those same quotes.

A person can claim to have faith, or even believe that they have a strong faith in God, that doesn't mean they have a free pass to heaven.

If a person has faith in God but their actions show otherwise, that directly reflects their faith.

Let's put it in a nonreligious perspective that you might better understand. Say a person claims to be a patriotic American, but the only patriotism they show is when they barbecue hotdogs on the Fourth of July. Would you agree that there claim is true?
That's about the only patriotism I show.

Seriously.

Saw a guy in the grocery store today with a tshirt that said "I'd rather die for my beliefs than live a life without meaning."

<quoted text>You're looking at it in an elementary linear perspective. You're thinking says that your life is a straight line and all of your actions are predetermined, how do you know that's true?

Because I believe that God is omnipotent and omniscient, I believe that God can see any and all possibilities that your life could take and the path your life does take.

Your actions are your own, the possibilities are endless.
Not to an omniscient god.

Why do you have to lie?

It's just like the people that got me fired. The only way they could do it, was to lie. That's how I know they were wrong.

Now that your pal Phelps is dead, who knows?
Pat Robertson? That Lively fellow? Phoney Baloney Mahony?
Let me make one thing very clear.

No, let me rephrase that (because it's you).

Let me attempt to make one thing very clear; Fred Phelps is not my friend. He's a piece of shit, lying scumbag and I'm glad he's dead.

Is that clear?

<quoted text>Which is why atheists try so hard to prove that free will doesn't exist.

Y'all aren't doing a very good job at it.
Nobody's trying to prove that either.

We are simply, as simply as possible so that even you can understand, that free will and an omniscient god are logically contradictory.

That means that they can't both exist simultaneously.

That means at the same time.

typo - missing word - "a. I'm not your "honey" - so please call me this. Your endearment has no merit."
- s/b =....so please DON'T call me this.

Not specifically looking for a god, but I did keep my eyes and ears peeled in case one tried to sneak up on me.

No gods appeared (and it was a very successful trip).

As for the Redneck: What's the use? He's hopeless, ignorant, brainwashed, wiseass high school dropout, but I may continue to goof on the poor slob.
By all means-carry on.

The cult leader? Why, the Jesus!, of course.
There is no evidence of the Jesus! being a "god".
At best, he was just a human. That's all any of the alleged evidence shows.
Christianity began as a cult, waiting for the charismatic "leader" to return after a preemptive death. When the leader didn't come through in the "prophesy", given in Matthew 24, confirmation bias http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Confirmation_bia... and cognitive dissonance http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cognitive_disson... kicked in, and in walked theTrue Believer™ http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/True-believer_sy... .
The cult still persists.
Jim Jones, David Karesh, Charles Manson, Bhagwan Rajneesh, and Warren Jeffs are/were cult leaders.

What do they all have in common? Pathological narcissism.

Jesus Christ was no cult leader in Christianity is not a cult, it doesn't fit the criteria.

It might fit the Topix Atheist! criteria, but we all know that's extremely biased and doesn't count.

What else are you skeptical about, that you spend so much time being skeptical about, other than Christianity?

You're a liar.
