All you do?
Is go on **personal** attack of **me**.
You **never****ever** attack my **ideas**...
... why?
Oh! Because you hate me so?
That seems to be it...
You are too much. Your ideas of God and The Universe sucks. You should be very happy you can't prove anything. You are more entertaining than the rest of your sort.

Not one argument in the above. Not one.
But lots and LOTS of HATE SPEECH-- nothing but personal attack and invective.
Your continued display of hate is astounding-- or it would be, if you were not already known as a hatecultist.
Sad, really.

Ye, of poor reading comprehension, not only have I admitted I could give you no argument. I have pointed out to you the argument can not begin and why. I tell you we can't have the argument because we lack the knowledge for it, and you start bobbing. Little Red Bobbing Hood fits you so good.

Honestly your comprehension is worthy of satire.

How is that an improvement?
The Gnostic Atheist did have a much better game than you guys have. They would not ask for arguments after I clearly proved we don't have enough information for an argument. The Gnostic Atheist grew bored with you clowns, ad I could see why.

<quoted text> If there is a religion within atheism ,I do not know about it. But it is true Stalin and others created pseudo-religions out of atheism, but those philosophies are far and away from the American boys around here. I just do not believe there is any evidence that rings true for your bible god to have ever existed. It is however a great way for the Jews to rule over your mind. And play you like a violin, which they have done expertly and are living off your tax money and Americas might, without America, Tel Aviv cannot exist. But can you truly tell me if Tel Aviv is a symbiont or is it a parasite? Riddle me this
Robert Stevens. Because I think its got it's claws in you and is sucking your blood, and giving nothing back. Guess why? Because you have bought into the book of lies.
We all have beliefs and most often because we buy into theories of a book. am assuming you are assuming my book of lies is The Bible. If so you are very wrong. If you respond to enough of my logs or post, and continue to insist I am a Christian. I have to mock your reading comprehension. I don't frown upon Christianity a you do, and I don't call anyone's book a book of lies. It is the book that is meant for THEM. In my opinion prior o the internet Atheism was a sort of religion of Philosophy. That was in their own admission, and in books of Philosophy. Great fans of Nietzsche, they took his words and perhaps found them inspiring. I could go on but why, I know you'll deny. You'd deny me my thoughts how could I believe you if you tell me that you don't have such thoughts. I can't see why Dave Nelson waste his time posting such long thought filled post.

<quoted text>Critics have the Bible down as myth until proven true. The moderns were wrong on a number of assumptions including David and the non existence of certain locations mentioned in the New. They were wrong about the late dating of Go John. These are just a few things. It is the moderns who marginalize everyone and claim they are right including the Kings of Europe. They are just hostile towards Scripture and God depicted. Their only real interest is protecting their atheism. I don't know why you would consider my example a warning. Just saying by your standard of measure it may be measured out to you.
Modern history gives ancient documents the benefit of the doubt and has methods to glean information for historical purposes. You come in here, take a few cheap shots and then bug out. I don't see any substantial arguments coming from your posts. A lot of claims. You really don't have any to make. The Kings of Europe had some ulterior motive for example. Did you pull that one out from where the sun does not shine? Where is your evidence? Fact being they believed they came from Noah and you have nothing from history to counter except unfounded accusations. LOL!
There is no need to "protect" atheism, unlike theism, it stands on it's own without the various crutches, props, smoke and mirrors, etc.

Sure modern historians give ancient historians the benefit of a doubt, they don't declare it factual statement mind you. They take as truth, the truth that was accepted at the time....before the advancement of knowledge.

Ancient Kings, lol. Much like our world leaders of today, mouthing platitudes and watching out for mumero uno...themselves. They had a VESTED interest in proving some kind of divine heritage and not just Christianity.

Theists can easily spot the falsity of ancient Pharaohs claiming to be direct descendants of the son god Ra or today's politicians who beat their breasts much as the ancient Pharisees and get caught with their pants down - literally - on an every day basis. Yet, you seem fundamentally unable to look at yourselves in the mirror and see the ridiculous reality of your situation.

Oh well, religion is losing ground daily the world over....it will never die out completely....but it will dwindle down to an oddity that the majority shrugs and avoids.

Atheism requires no faith at all but I wish i had Jean-Paul sartre's attitude to religion, a man so thoroughly atheist he deemed the whole subject beneath his intelligence to consider. Simply religion is divisive and restricts us as a species, simple as that. Check out a book that's causing a bit of a buzz in the Uk called 2082 the chronicles of hope. On the website the 1st chapter for the 1st book is on there for free, there's a speech in there by an atheist politician that's genius
Sounds interesting, I'll have to check it out. TY!

And the United States government has ignored the fact that religion is not supposed to be a part of the government for many years now so it was not surprising when they ignored the actual definition of the word religion. Now I'm curious as to whether you are a person who just agrees and doesn't do any thinking for yourself or if you are someone who can actually admit that the statement is false. The definition of religion does not in any way mesh with the definition of atheism. If you don't see that then you are simply arguing to be arguing. It's simple and obvious. It's always seemed silly to me that people can't just look at the definition an see the simplicity of it. "Not believing in a deity". It's just so plain and simple.

At the base of anyone who claims to be an atheist that is the one simple definition... To address what you would call Churches of Atheism...it's in my opinion that if someone calls something an atheist "church" then they are also ignoring the definitions church... A church is a public building yes, but mostly used for Christian worship. There is no reason for an atheist to have church.

Also Can't blame the Federals to try this option.

After all, throwing money or tax breaks at the problem to make it go away (for now) has worked well in the past.

There is no reason for an atheist to have a funeral either, right?
