No.

The professing atheist is what is commonly known as an “agnostic”- one who claims he “doesn't know” if God exists. It is interesting to note that the Latin equivalent for the Greek word is “ignoramus.” The Bible tells us that this ignorance is “willful”(Psalm 10:4). It's not that a person can't find God, but that he won't. It has been rightly said that the “atheist” can't find God for the same reason a thief can't find a policeman. He knows that if he admits that there is a God, he is admitting that he is ultimately responsible to Him. This is not a pleasant thought for some.
I have every sympathy with the theists who are so horrified
by what is in their Bible they gave up reading.

More 'faith facts'
http://www.vaticancrimes.us/2010/04/catholic-...
Tell me WHY nothing has been done?
Catholics are the majority of the Xtian cults.
Crimen Sollicitationis
The appalling 39-page document, Crimen Sollicitationis, was issued worldwide in 1962 by then Cardinal, now resigning Pope Ratzinger, outlining procedures to protect priests accused of sexual abusing minors and sexually propositioning penitents, and how to conceal these violations.
First of all the catholic church is a false religion, actually it's the biggest deceiver of mankind, followed by the Muslims faith. I believe the Church of Christ is the true church of the bible and the only church teaching and preaching the true word of God and worshipping in spirit and in truth. God said it's better to marry than burn, this is one of the many problems caused by a false religion like the catholic church, if men were allowed to marry there wouldn't of been such a problem with sexual abuse. The catholic church is riddled with all kinds of problems, and for a very good reason, it's a false religion. The Church of Christ was established on 33 A.D. and appox. 300 years later some of the elders of the Church of Christ decided to branch off because of their own selfish desires, and that's how the catholic church came to be. They have added and taken away from the bible and have deceived more people than any other false religion.

Why is it Topix atheists have no real intellectual curiosity? It seems all they can do is blurt.

Is it really necessary for the body human to have so many zits? Is this part of a growing and maturing process? Or has mankind ate too much junk food?

This is true, if you keep lying about God like Skeptic does.
He hates God and is reduced to 4 lettered one liners about the faithful....(he thinks his fellow 'atheists' appreciate it and him....yeah go figure....)
He says he has proof that God doesnt exist but wont show anyone because he believes he is too 'elite' for us.....
And because he 'said so!'

Ok, then why did you say I was wrong?
RiversideRedneck wrote:
It's just as irrational as saying it DOESN'T exist with no evidence.
You keep missing that.
That's not true. It's not a 50/50 likelihood of these extraordinary claims being true or false.

If I tell you there's a dragon in my garage, it's not equally irrational for you to doubt me as it is for you to believe me.

Because I know all about car engines, fairies aren't in them.
You don't know that. Absence of evidence isn't evidence of absence, right? It could be that there are fairy colonies at every car factory and when each car comes off the line, a fairy goes with it.

You don't know that. Housey the House God gives each house a soul when it's built.

Not much. It's just a matter of degree. If I told you my uncle was dead for 3 days and then popped out of the ground, you'd consider that to be a ridiculous extraordinary claim, yet that's something you believe about Jesus.

The words of a defeated creationist with no proof of god, who can't stop immorally lying about his beliefs.

That's it huh? You just turn off like a broken TV and get discarded? That is your assumption.
I view it more like a candle flame that is blown out. And it is *your* assumption that there is more than this even though there is no evidence of such. What we do know is that after we die we decompose (assuming we aren't preserved in formaldehyde or something similar). If you have any evidence of anything more, please present it.

There is nothing difficult about the *concept*. Now, is there any evidence that it happens in reality? Any evidence at all that this program can run on different hardware? Any evidence that it does, in fact, run on different hardware (or even without hardware)?

None that that specific phenomenon regarding human souls does, but only because science hasn't figured how to measure it yet.
And this is in spite of many, many attempts to find a way to measure it. At what point do we simply admit it doesn't exist?
