Is your reasoning infallible?
You seem to be avoiding answering this simple question.
Which reveals that you suppressing the truth on this.
The above?

Is neither an argument in support of, nor evidence for, a god.

You lose by default: your god is still not real.

Think about it, if God was never real to you then that means you never were a Christian.
Jesus refused to teach the Pharisees because their hearts were closed.
Did you seek for God with your whole heart, if you did you would have found Him.

So the bible cant be true because different people have translated older texts at different times?
No--the bible can't be true because it contains a multiplicity of mistakes, errors, lies, falsehoods, fairy-tales, misconceptions, lies, fiction, myths and so on.

In fact?

If something in the bible turns out to be factual?

That is **also** a mistake-- for it was never the **intent** of it's authors...

Read carefully, as an atheist you have no basis for morality.
You have no absolute standard if right and wrong.
If you do, share what it is.

You are missing the point.
Why do you get to define what atheism is?
Because **we** are **atheists**.

You are not.

You do not get to define the word we use to describe ourselves.

For one thing?

You clearly have no clue what "atheist" means...

A lack of belief is a knowledge claim. You are claiming there is no evidence, which is a position.
You are not neutral.
If there **is** evidence?

PRESENT IT, AND WIN THE NOBEL PRIZE.

Can you do it?

No?

Hmmmmm....

You are **not** special.

For one thing?

You are quite hateful in your attitude.

That right there? Pretty much means that any god you claim to represent is also hateful...

Nice try.
The burden of proof is on the person making the claim.
Negative or positive is irrelevant.
Correct: that would be YOU.

Do you have **ANY** evidence to prove your god-claim?

No?

Interesting. By **default**?

Your claim is therefore false.

Parents are not Ultimate Creators of the Universe.

Parents are not omniscient.

Parents are not omnipowerful.

So, yes-- you can have parents and free will.

But you cannot have a **god** who is omni-X.

Such a being would eliminate all possibility of choice-- who can go against an omnipowerful god, who has already seen **the** future?

And you think you have a deep knowledge of the bible?
I think you confuse intentional skepticism with actual knowledge.
Far deeper than you, obviously.

Proof?

You still **believe** the bible...

Anger at God does not mean He does not exist.
Fear of god does not make him any more real.

Just as fear of the "boogyman" does not make that real, either.

Your fear is showing.

How can morality predate God?
Because your god-claim is fiction, invented by very lazy people who were deeply afraid of the Out There, beyond the campfire's light.

So these cowardly, lazy first-priests fabricated a god-beast to "explain" things, and to give them dubious "comfort" when they cowered under the animal skins someone gave them out of pity.

For these first-priests were too lazy, too cowardly, to fend for themselves-- they had to coerce people to do it **for** them.

And the racket known as "religion" was invented--it's been stealing money, goods and services from humanity ever since.

The old Santa Claus argument.
Correct.

Santa Claus is **exactly** as likely as your god-claim.

The two are **exactly** the same sort of belief:

100%**not** supported by **anything**.

If you **had** proof?

YOU WOULD HAVE PRESENTED IT BY NOW, AND WON THE NOBEL PRIZE.

Nope. The word "jesus" is nowhere to be found in the OT.

Nope. Jesus was born in the **wrong** town according to the OT. More to the point? The name "Jesus of Nazareth" is impossible; Nazareth did not exist until well after the Jesus-myth supposedly happened.

Nope. Jesus was not descended from David-- his "dad" was god, not David. And in Hebrew, the **male** lineage is paramount-- why do you think all those *begats* were of **men**?

He got fired from editing The Mirror newspaper as a result of lying about Iraq. So maybe GWB can put him up? The Iraq liar Blair is clearly too busy bringing peace to the Middle East to help you.
