I'm sick of these ill-minded atheists. There has to be something in their mind that's seriously messed up. I'd like to find this Philip Pullman's email address and have a word with him.

Your picture on your ID appears that you are rather young yourself. Who filled your head with the foolish idea there is no God? Who told you such a damnable lie?

You really are a revolting piece of work and a fine advert for xtianity.

Why should youth be an impediment to rational thought and intelligence? You sound as though you are quite old
and as thick as 3 short planks.

I will take that as a compliment coming from an atheist. You sound just like your god, Dawkins who makes the same absurd claims about all Christians.
You like to attack people's intelligence to make yourselves look like you are so smart when in fact you are the biggest dumb clucks on earth! I think the majority of you haven't graduated from the sandbox yet.

You also sound like you are an immature, hotheaded jackass! Wisdom is wasted on the youth and she's young. Still wet behind the ears. She has a lot to learn as obviously you do.

Many young people think they are invincible and make rash, stupid judgments! Like there is no God.
If you had a dab of intelligence in your brains you would realize there is a God.

I could not give a tinkers toss what you worship. My comments were aimed at you the the arrogant,pompous bully. The fact you post from behind an anonymous proxy demonstrates the level of your bravery.

It is blatantly obvious there is no need for anyone to attack your intelligence.

I have not read any books by Mr. Dawkins, Mr. Harris, Mr. Hitchens or any other current Atheist author. I have no need to. I have arrived at my viewpoint through 55 years of life. I have been an Atheist from the age of 11, since then I have not seen anything to persuade me the thing you call god exists.

Your comments about young people are extremely bitter,
twisted and sad. If you are feeling bad about yourself or your life you could always turn to god. Oh, wait a minute, you already have. Talking to him obviously works quite well.

It is very easy for you to prove the existence of the thing you call god. Just pray for Jesus to appear in my living room. The Bible (the word of god) says it is OK to do this and Jesus did appear to Paul because he doubted.

Check out the following sections of your instruction manual for advice on prayer.

Matthew 7:7, Matthew 17:20, Matthew 21:21, Mark 11:24, John 14:12-14, Matthew 18:19 and James 5:15-16

According to what is written here you can pray for anything you want.

Well Jesus has failed to materialize in my living room, what do you think this means?

I wish people would stop stereptyping atheists, a lot of us don't judge you. I'll admit i get angry when someone downs us and might lash out, but it's only because they don't give me the tolerence i give them. Not all atheists are bad.

Nice God you have there, very loving.

And I do think I am better then the God of the bible, that God is immoral, barbaric, insecure and just not a very nice fictional character.
So there , I judge God, and he failed my moral test. And I now banish him to spend eternity in the bottom of my septic tank with the rest of the little shits. Amen!(Haaaa!)
