Why would you continue to focus on Christianity when all atheism is is the lack of a belief in deities.
Still, it you atheists are always on Christian boards and I rarely see you on Muslim or Hindu or other major religious forums. You say it's because Christianity is the world's largest religion. Yes, it is, but Islam is running a close second, and why aren't you debating Muslims as ferociously as you do Christians? I think it's because atheism is really an emotional backlash from most atheists being raised in Christian cultures, Pauline Christian cultures which means to me, atheists are reacting against the Pauline Christian doctrines established by the Church Fathers under Constantin's orders.
If you guys would do your homework you would know that my type of Christianity, Celestial Torah Christianity, is a modern Gnostic Christian theology that, like ancient Gnosticism, has strong roots in Egyptian religion symbolism as well as ancient Canaanite and Mesopotamian ones. Near Eastern ancient roots except the pre-historic Ariel figurine is from Europe.
So our Gnostic path is quite at home with Mythos carrying symbolic meaning and coupled with synchronicity experiences for most and the Voice of God for some it is possible to be spiritually guided to the truth of just about anything it seems although I surely haven't tested and asked all possible questions. That's what humanity's for--to ask all the questions and receive all the answers to move the spiritual ball forward along with our own social and technological progress.

**EXCEPT** for the Official State Religion™, which was used as a TOOL to keep people in line.
Without RELIGION? Neither Stalin nor Pol Pot would have been successful.
Seriously-- faith is what kept them in power.
Atheism is about NO FAITH.
Official state religion? That's a joke.
For both Stalin and Pol Pot, "religion" was just a tool, just like "nutritionists" on McDonalds corporate payroll are tools. In their hearts, they were athiest, despite what they chose to label themselves.

Atheism is a disbelief in god. Show us where the murder part is again?

Oh yeah, you can't because atheism is simple belief and has nothing to do with genocide whatsoever.

When you can successfully prove your god, you won't have to lie about atheists so much.

<quoted text>We've been over this before, bob. Has something happened to your memory? Each sect picks and chooses, adds and subtracts Books, each according to their own guidance and interpretations of Devine Will. I've never taken up the serpent, either- does that make me an atheist? The only thing I'd like to do that occurred in the Old Testament is to do as Sampson did and take up the jawbone of an ass and smite the enemies of Christians...for you, it would be like getting hit by your twin brother.
That is very Jesus of you: hypocrite.

Of course religion was a TOOL.

I responded, defend your comment.

BTW: I am atheist and more likely to understand the terms meaning than would a paper god concept, still silent some two thousand years later.
Atheism is much older than that...

Men have been trying to hide from God since the dawn of sin.

<quoted text>Nope-- you are lying:

Atheism is merely asking that the "GOD IS REAL" people PROVE their claim.

Until (and if) you PROVE your claim "god is real"?

The **default** is that your god is NOT real.

That's how it works, bubba.
Is your reasoning infallible?

Lie.

Athiesm is simply a request for **proof** that gods are real.

So far?

Nobody-- including you-- has offered any.

So by **default**? Gods are myth.

Indeed we do. Wasn't that long ago, when "blasphemy" was a "crime" punishable by death.
You, me and anyone else with a **working** brain recognizes that blasphemy is simply a word used to describe what is **true** about the religion in question...
... a truth they cannot allow to be told far and wide-- it undermines their cause.
Indeed it does. Which is why we must wake up the masses and get them to realize the truth. The sooner, the better. Anything is better over believing in something that is a lie. I've always lived by that principle.

To deny something, you have to believe in it first. Atheists don't deny god, we just realise that you're lying about it.

There's a difference.
