Stop being purposely obtuse I know even you are not THAT stupid.

When people say look to the heavens they mean the sky and even you know that ditch digger.

Keep dancing puppet! I could buy and sell you a dozen times a day.

Know your role half wit, shovel in hand and diet on your face.

You know we all laugh at you right? Your ignorance clearly shows the damage theistic faith causes. Not all of us can be college graduates and successful. The world needs dish washers and ditch diggers like you as well.:)

Is that where you look?

You can only say what YOU do.

You cannot imply that you know what everyone does.

Oh I get the inbox messages and trust me most of us are laughing at you not with you :))

Again not everyone can be a college educated success story. We need grunts like you to collect trash, dig ditches and wash ditches. I suppose your ilk needs the comfort of an imaginary god who you telepathically speak to. Whatever helps you through your day grunt.

Whichever you prefer, we Americans have this little thing called freedom of religion. If you wanna believe in a sky wizard, that's your choice.
Christians don't believe God lives in the sky nor is He a wizard of any kind. That's an atheist belief.
So far, no atheist believes in wizards at all, that's what the christian religion believes in.

Of course next they will need to rely in taking the bible out of context. It mentions witches and sorcerers but it meant.... Uhmmm...... Like other stuff?

Actually wizards are possible, men such as Archimedes, Tesla, Edison to name a few were considered wizards.
Sorcery is different from wizardry.
John Browning was THE gun wizard.

Yu are kind of stretching the imagination here. It's great to think of magic as "technology we don't understand" in existentialism, but that is not what the stories describe, they very clearly state that these "powers" defy the laws of nature. That is not "technology not yet understood" but opposing all of known science. Of course, this would be required if it was a supernatural event in any way. Though you are correct, Tesla and Edison would have been hung as witches if the christian leaders were allowed full power, and the bible was to be obeyed.

Freedom of religion does NOT mean the freedom to ignore scientific facts and lie about atheists.
You believe that jesus rode on the backs of dinosaurs. Fine. Just keep your hallucinations out of civilised society and schools and everything is cool.
Keep your cult in your livingrooms and away from impressionable minds.
Thats as much freedom fraudulent cults deserve.
To be fair, the notion of a powerful wizard/beast master riding dinosaurs while spreading the gospel is pretty awesome.
