I guess that absolves me completely, Eagle
First of all I am a devoutly irreligious Agnostic, Secular, Humanist that has never seen a God nor has anyone else on the planet.
Vainly attempting to blame atheism is all the ills of society is rather misinformed at the least.
Scandinavian countries are very irreligious mostly socialist democracy's that enjoy one of the highest standard of living on the planet.
Your religion is dying and the evidence is worldwide.
How long do you plan keep your head buried in the sand of The Religious abyss?
Jesus may love you, but how can you be sure, his own father had him crucified.
Intelligent design = original sin
PULLEEZZEE
What a bigoted, ignorant, hateful post.

The population of the Scandinavian countries totals 25 million. Texas alone has more people. What they both have in common is oil. Only Texas shares it's oil revenue with 300 million. Imagine what would happen in Texas if they didn't?

That's just a start.

Gotta love those 'rational atheist' oxymorons...

Do I make it up as I go along...just for you or did find the key to the carefully hidden information?

You poor young aspiring intellect, you are cut from the same cloth as those jihadists. You read a book that you think enlightened you, leading you down a path where you will never see the larger picture.

You are a fanatic.

We'll take you cowardly creationists more seriously when you can actually present evidence for god, instead of whining at Atheists as they show you up in a public forum every single day.

Would it bother you to know we really don't care if you believe or not? Some of us know the Creator made junk.

OOHRA... here's your start...

Such beautiful sentiments it almost brings a tear to my eye...

(KJV) GE 17:11, 14, 23-25, EX 4:25, LE 12:3, DE 10:16, JS 5:3, SA 18:25, 27, SA 3:14, JE 4:4, HA 2:16 Various references to foreskins, some rather vulgar.

GE 9:22 Ham, the father of Canaan, saw his father's nakedness.

GE 19:4-8 A group of sexually depraved men demands that Lot turn over to them his two male visitors. Lot offers his two virgin daughters instead.

GE 19:30-38 Lot's daughters have sexual intercourse with him while he is drunk and both become pregnant by their father.

GE 24:2-9, 47:29 "... put your hand under my thigh, and I will make you swear by the Lord ...." (Note: This means "put your hand under my testicles," which is the manner in which oaths were taken at the time; "testament," "testify," and "testicle" have the same root.)

RUBBISH!

Here's a huge steaming pile of rational for you...

You believe in a book that has talking animals, wizards, witches, demons, sticks turning into snakes, food falling from the sky, people walking on water, and all sorts of magical, absurd and primitive stories, and you say that we are the ones that are irrational?

This only makes sense to religious slaves...

A religion impaired mind is always interesting to atheists.

Each Christian post, in atheism forums, is a advertisement for atheism.

You're doing a great job of 'not caring'- hurling insults at Atheists in the Atheism forum every time they show your beliefs to be ridiculous and false.

Wrong
Atheism is a religion like bald is a hair color,
Further - no one joins atheism, it's an individual decision based on education.
The more educated you are and scientifically literate, the less religiosity.
“Organised religion is violent, irrational, intolerant, allied to racism, tribalism, and bigotry, invested in ignorance and hostile to free inquiry,
contemptuous of women and coercive toward children.”
~Christopher Hitchens
The 7th Circuit Court of Appeals says atheism is a religion.

Regardless of whether it is a religion, it is a belief, same as theism.

Creationists like Buck Crick suffer from a mental illness where they can't accept that Atheism = Not Theist.

Its easier for Buck to 'believe' that Atheism is a religion, because its a convenient delusions for him and his cult.

RIP Hitch. His book changed my life.
He was a gifted writer.

But if you really want to read wonderful comments you need to read Robert Ingersoll aka "The great agnostic"

Robert Green Ingersoll is too little known today. Yet he was the foremost orator and political speech maker of late 19th century America.

Ingersoll was born in Dresden, New York in 1833. His father was a Presbyterian minister who changed congregations often.

Ingersoll entered public life as a Peoria, Illinois, attorney. Following distinguished service in the Civil War, he served as the first Attorney General of Illinois.

Politically, he allied with the Republicans, the party of Lincoln and in those days the voice of progressivism. Ingersoll’s electrifying speaking voice soon made him the most sought-after speechmaker on behalf of Republican candidates and causes.

His legal career was also distinguished. He mounted a successful defense of two men falsely charged in the Star Route Scandal, perhaps the most controversial, politically-charged trial of the late 19th century.

But it was his private speaking career that made him famous. Tour after tour, he crisscrossed the country and spoke before packed houses on topics ranging from Shakespeare to Reconstruction, from science to religion.

In an age when oratory was the dominant form of public entertainment, Ingersoll was the unchallenged king of American orators.

Ingersoll was the friend of Presidents, literary giants like Mark Twain, captains of industry like Andrew Carnegie, and leading figures in the arts. He was also beloved of reformers like Elizabeth Cady Stanton.

Other Americans considered themselves his enemies. He bitterly opposed the Religious Right of his day. He popularized Charles Darwin and was a tireless advocate of science and reason. More, he argued for the rights of women and African-Americans.

Ingersoll also praised the virtues of family and fireside. And he practiced what he preached. Contemporary sources say Ingersoll enjoyed almost idyllic contentment in family life. Opponents frequently despaired of finding anything to disparage in his personal life.

I've always had a fascination with history.
The Egyptian religion was quite interesting especially Horus.

To become agnostic is only a matter of reading through history and studying various the religions their beliefs and origins.

Kinda cute.

You have some more epiphanies to go yet, young one.

One of my earlier ones was in my early teens. I read in an encyclopedia about Antony and Cleo dressing as slaves and getting into bar fights. People is people.

It's apparent history has taught you nothing or you never studied it.

Please reconcile the Horus mythology with the Jesus mythology, go play in the Mithras fun house for a while, visit exciting Krishna and dine with Buddha.

Take the time to research the origin of this word...

Dare to watch this video, take the wheels off your trailer and sit a while, Ya Hear?

Don't let the title frighten you, Jesus will still love you if you watch it, IF he is in a good mood today.
