I can accept that.

No it's a legit question as not all Christians believe Jesus was god. Many believe he was merely the son of god and completely separate. They passionately believe in Jesus just not that he is god.

You have lived a sheltered Fox News life so you don't know this.

It's still an ignorant queston. No matter is a Christian believes in Jesus or not, God is still God. And for the Christians that do believe in Jesus, Jesus IS God.
So asking a Christian "Which god" is an ignorant question.

In the pursuit of a totalitarian state learn the difference. Stalin sunk a fortune into his cherished Russian Orthodox Church as you have been shown and is to this day as back then considered a hero and saint to them. He killed people who his delusions told him was plannin his assassination. Nothing to do with atheism. And you know this. All of your examples are due to totalitarian states nothing to do with atheism. Unlike hitler who said he was going to punish the Christ killer Jews.

The reign of terror in the French Revolution had to do with dethroning a king and killing his cronies. The overwhelming majority of those people were devout Christians. Note there were certain priests marked for death but not all of them. Actually only a small handful.

Again nothing to do with atheism whatsoever.

And you know it.

Not "in the name of" atheism, but in pursuit of an state which was atheist.
Do some reading on the Reign of Terror (1793-4) in France...
The enactment of a law on October 21, 1793 made all suspected priests and all persons who harbored them liable to death on sight.

LOL! I did not tell my teacher that it was 9, she told me. Back then, an elementary student did not talk back or contradict the teacher.

She taught us that we should question authority.

The next Sunday, when I was in Sunday school, I started asking all those questions that I had and was afraid to ask.

After a few questions, the teacher got a bit upset and told me not to question god. I was sent to the preacher who very quickly told me the same thing.

Is your god afraid of questions form a fifth grader?

This Langoliers guy is a total scumbag and consistently suggests dangerous cures to sick people on another forum. It is really all about him getting the attention his little underdeveloped mind needs.

On the other forum he is very deceptive and posts under many names, do your best to stay away from this lunatic.

Excerpt:

Bob Jones: Big-mouthed Bigot from the Boondocks

The son of a Confederate soldier and Alabama sharecropper, the young and poorly educated Bob Jones (1883-1968) discovered a youthful talent for memorizing scripture.

With a natural flair for oratory, the "boy preacher" warmed the hearts and softened the brains of the yokels. At 15 Bob was already an itinerant Methodist and on his way to Jesus loot, an enterprise he continued for half a century, until upstaged by the new boy on the block and dangerous liberal, Billy Graham.

Proudly intolerant, Jones was a racist, anti-Catholic, anti-Darwinian, who supported the Klan. In 1927, with the tide of history moving against religious reactionaries, BJ put money into the Bob Jones College (later University), the purpose of which was to train missionaries and teach the "Christian alternative" to reality.

Topix atheists will not see the weakness in their methodology. They will immediately fall to the floor and genuflect to these scientists.

Instead of using their brains, they smash things and sift through the pieces looking for clues, when they already have enough.
