Wow. Really? Really?? The guy is going off to deal with what could be a serious illness and you have to get off a parting shot like that? This is wrong on like nine levels. Top three being: 1) Hardly a "christian " message. Barely even a humane message. 2) If heaven is all that, you should be jealous that he may be closer to it than you. 3) Mary was a knocked-up Jewish teen. Protestants say Catholics are pagans for worshipping her. And yet you recommend it?  (Aug 17, 2009 | post #7000)

Better yet, are you saying that in every instance of virgin pregnancy the girl in question was monitored 24/7 before the pregnancy to be sure there was no human male involved in the "miracle "? And that if she wasn't monitored as such, everyone just believed her when she said there was no man involved? This mom was almost as gullible... http://www.thesun. co.uk/sol/homepage /news/2525921/Teen -pregnant-after-sw imming-in-pool.htm l  (Aug 16, 2009 | post #6923)

Does 'New Atheism' harm the cause of science?

Yes, and if the theists hadn't brainwashed so much of the population against birth control, we may not have so many billions! Who is preventing poor people in Africa from getting condoms? Here's a hint: Not the atheists. Imagine a world with no social stigma against contraception or abortion...heck, while we're at it, imagine a church that doesn't protect it's pedophile priests! It's nice to dream.  (Aug 11, 2009 | post #644)

A Christian Analysis Of Atheism, Part 1

I tried to read it too...the first half was a slog through lies and oversimplification s...then when he got to Ayn Rand and described "Atlas Shrugged" as being about that solipsistic architect, he lost me. See cuz the book about the architect was "The Fountainhead. " "Atlas Shrugged" is the one where the world's elite thinkers, designers, and builders "shrug" off the society that has come to rely on them and yet blames them for all the world's ills. Also, he describes Darwin's work as having a "veneer of science." I would, in turn, describe Mr. Meekins as having a "veneer of a grasp on reality."  (Aug 10, 2009 | post #10)

If it shuts him up to think that you'll speak to his invisible friend on his behalf, then by all means, tell him you'll pray for him. But by no means should you actually spend any time or energy trying to directly address his invisible friend. I didn't mean to suggest I would *actually* pray for that guy...I meant to show how useless prayer was by equating it with arguing with him.  (Aug 4, 2009 | post #6138)

I'm not judging anybody by any standards. I don't care if a character in the bible had a million wives plus two horses in his bed. I'm responding to your request for other clear implications of incest which appeared to be accepted if not promoted by god. And you just brought up another illustration of the bible's contradictions, complete with contradictory rationalization. Yeah, I'm done. Praying for you would be more productive than arguing with you. (only the atheists will see the irony in that statement)  (Aug 3, 2009 | post #6101)

Hey may not have "put them up to it," but he certainly accepted it. Why else would he have allowed them to live after wiping out an entire city for what he judged to be bad behavior? And their own mother for daring to disobey him and turn back to see her home town as it was being destroyed? Your failure to see the most basic contradictions in your bible myths is epic. Your ability to assign these contradictions to everyone else's inability to comprehend the book is colossal. I would rather believe there is no god than believe in one who behaves like such a buttwad toward his followers.  (Aug 3, 2009 | post #6062)

Also, Cain and/or Abel would have had to sleep with Eve. How else could two people with two sons give rise to all humanity?  (Aug 3, 2009 | post #6061)

Do you understand the difference between one and zero? It's much bigger than the difference between one and two. If there were two pieces of concrete evidence for Pilatus and only one for Jesus, you might have a case, even if we said there was twice as much evidence in our favor. But there is zero for Jesus.  (Aug 3, 2009 | post #6060)

Proof please? If Stephen Hawking doesn't know what caused the Big Bang, I doubt a 2000-year-old myth will provide any answers either. You can say it was god and I can say it was the Flying Spaghetti Monster. Our answers are both equally provable.  (Aug 3, 2009 | post #5994)

Flying Spaghetti Monster Evangelism

I'm going on a mission for FSM later this month. Yes, it will look like I'm just visiting family back home for a few days, maybe doing a little kayaking and swimming, and I'm not going to knock on any doors or try to talk to anyone, but really I'll be spreading the noodly word. Ramen.  (Aug 2, 2009 | post #8)

How is that different from what you are doing? Because you are only staking out the pleasant bits? The bits that support your version of god? The bits that tell people how to live their lives in ways you agree with? We're just pointing out some of the verses you've clearly chosen to ignore. Our lego set is more complete than yours.  (Aug 2, 2009 | post #5944)

You stated that having only one physical relic proving the existence of Pilatus is weak. I agreed, and added that if you can question people's belief in Pilatus since there is only one piece of evidence, we can question your belief in Jesus because there are fewer pieces of evidence (i.e zero) proving his existence. The only straw here is in the bits falling off your strawman arguments.  (Aug 2, 2009 | post #5943)
