Well he said his god gave everyone a chance to save themselves in the time of Noah's flood which was ridiculous. When this was pointed out all he had left was his usual way out in left field Daffy style rant.

Good grief you say some stupid things on here. Crazy ole Daffy always good for a laugh.

Could we add to that the innocent unborn that untold numbers of pregnant women were carrying. And lets not forget the developing fetuses that God saw fit to destroy. And all because of a temper tantrum.

LOL!
So the letters from the Apostles in the Bible are not admissible? the later sources do not confirm their writings?
That is far more evidence than necessary, we have less for the existence of Caesar himself, we have far less historical sources for most of Roman history than we do the events surrounding Jesus.
But you exclude the Bible itself, which naturally would be a collection of the most conclusive evidence, since that is what the religion is based on?
LOL!!!!!!
Unlike the mythical Jesus Christ, we know what Caesar looked like and we have a complete history of his life. In turn, general, orator, historian, statesman and lawgiver. We have words written by Caesar himself and words written by both his friends and his enemies. Artifacts confirm his life and death, as do his successors. Caesar established a style of government – and a calendar – which endured for centuries.

Evidence that confirms the existence of Caesar is legion – in stark contrast to the utter dearth of evidence for Jesus.

"Jesus better documented than any other ancient figure"? Don't believe a word of it. Unlike the mythical Jesus, a real historical figure like Julius Caesar has a mass of mutually supporting evidence.

Honey just because the process is not yet fully understood (but it is being worked on) does not mean you can throw in the town and say “I don’t understand do goddidit”

Atheist Leaders and the number of deaths from wiki
Russia/Soviet Union
Vladimir Ilyich Lenin (1870—1924): Marxist revolutionary and leader of the Bolsheviks. Lenin considered atheist and anti-religious propaganda to be essential to promoting communism.[18]
Nikita Khrushchev (1894–1971): Soviet General Secretary, 1953–1964.,[19][20]
Joseph Stalin: General Secretary of the Communist Party of the Soviet Union's Central Committee from 1922 until his death in 1953.[21]
Leon Trotsky (1879–1940): Marxist theorist.[22]
Mikhail Gorbachev (1931–): Former Soviet president
Jiang Zemin (1926–): Chinese communist politician, General Secretary of the Communist Party of China 1989–2002 and President of China 1993–2003.[3] Mao Zedong (1893–1976): Chinese military and political leader, who led the Communist Party of China to victory in the Chinese Civil War, and was the leader of the People's Republic of China from its establishment in 1949 until his death in 1976. Under his leadership, China officially became an atheist state
the introduction, editor Stéphane Courtois asserts that "...Communist regimes...turned mass crime into a full-blown system of government". He cites a death toll which totals 94 million, not counting the "excess deaths" (decrease of the population due to lower than-expected birth rates). The breakdown of the number of deaths given by Courtois is as follows:
65 million in the People's Republic of China
20 million in the Soviet Union[3]
2 million in Cambodia
2 million in North Korea
1.7 million in Africa
1.5 million in Afghanistan
1 million in the Communist states of Eastern Europe
1 million in Vietnam[4]
150,000 in Latin America
10,000 deaths "resulting from actions of the international Communist movement and Communist parties not in power."(p. 4)
More than 123 Million died at the hands of Atheist Leaders!!!

Evidently, I have to repost again, because you didn't read it the first time, or you are mentally challenged.
Typical ignorance.
Christianity 101. All that is evil can only exist by an act of free will. This does not negate the power God may exercise to make something good emerge from a tragedy.
Just as family members who might lose a loved one to cancer, to make something good turn out of it by starting a new cancer-aware program.
A logical atheists would know this, and would not make this error. A rational atheists takes the time to learn the theology, before making such foolish remarks.
let us know what good will come from someone you love dying slow painful death,IF that should ever happen..

Wrong.
The case for Jesus has been challenged, and successfully defended for 2000 years. It was attacked when Christianity was still fresh, and all failed to discredit it.
There is plenty of secular evidence. No Christian, EVER, had to defend his faith, or explain this to you. Only you have the burden of proving all the evidence false in history. Good luck!
burden of proof FALLACY.

secular evidence!?LOL youre one nutty dingbat

Is this the same God who supposedly wiped out the entire population of the Earth via flood? I'd say those numbers trump "ideological states" combined many times over. And in any case, if God's genocide numbers were lower, how does that make it morally OK?
See? This is exactly why critical thinking skills are important.
Not at all. Just add up all the deaths ... not even close to modern warfare since World War I.

Unless there were quite a lot of people before the flood, but that is unknown.

Genocide? God is not partial to races. He made us all, and He can take it all away.

Yes, critical thinking skills ... the one think that most atheists completely lack. Just look at your post.
