If your god was as smart as humans, he would have known how religion corrupts and would not make for religion.  (12 hrs ago | post #137610)

She is here as we are, but you are not discussing anything. You simply preach. When you gather up the courage to have an honest discussion, let me know. Seems your team is on the run.  (Monday | post #137594)

Why should we debate it if you have pre determined our answers are foolish? Just because you see magic in the things that are fantastic, does not mean it is magic.  (Monday | post #137593)

These are claims, not facts. How is morality objective if you change the idea of killing for religious reasons as you have in the case of Moses? You stated the goal of reaching the promised land as the subjective reason to slaughter those who worshipped the golden calf. You can't have it both ways. You can't build a house with the blink of an eye and a wish either. You are still here and 4 years ago you claimed Jesus would be here in a few short years. Seems your prediction was wrong. Your opinions are not facts. This thread has plenty of atheists still in the fight. Seems the Christians have run away. Is this how you determine a victory for your team?  (Monday | post #137592)

You see a picture organized religion has painted.  (Friday Oct 17 | post #137564)

Yes, you can easily catch air. A kid can do it. Ever hold your breath? Try this simple experiment. Get a bucket and turn it upside down. Now dunk it under water. Now turn it right side up. You will see the captured air in the form of bubbles rise to the surface. God cannot pass such a simple test, because god is a myth, and air is real.  (Thursday Oct 16 | post #137552)

Air can be tested. It has pressure we can measure in detail. We can measure the oxygen levels of air. God cannot pass such tests. You must rely on pure faith(superstition ) to believe in god. You do not need faith or superstition to believe air is real. I am sure you read such claims in religious propaganda, as I have heard it a thousand times by as many ignorant people. Learn some science before you spew your propaganda and look like a fool.  (Thursday Oct 16 | post #137550)

The big bang was an event, not a reason. You cannot show an intelligent creator making life, so your claim falls flat. It may be your belief, but not my belief. When you use phrases such as "has to take a very intelligent being" you are insisting we accept your beliefs. Well I do not believe it, as you have zero evidence of the claim. I see no reason to accept the claim. It is but a claim. Thank goodness your religion is no longer insists my kind be killed for not believing your claims. You and your religion have progressed one step away from ISIS. Now pat yourself on the back.  (Thursday Oct 16 | post #137549)

You say this as if homosexuals were unaware of religions position on the matter. They are fully aware of the superstitions of your holy book. You are not saving anyone. You are just bitching and moaning in the typical bigoted fashion of religious extremists. We are fully aware you object to freedom.  (Monday Oct 13 | post #137500)

Everyone probably had a homosexual friend as a child. Many just did not know it. Homosexuality is no more a choice as eye color is. Not sure what PETA has to do with any of this, but it is normal that you write things that are nonsense. Now continue on your bigotry like the average Islamic extremist.  (Monday Oct 13 | post #137499)

So what do the words "congress shall make no law respecting the establishment of religion" mean to you?  (Monday Oct 13 | post #137498)

That thing you hate so much (secularism) is what stopped Christians from killing as you speak of. Maybe if your kind promoted secularism, we could show a better example. Sadly your measure of success is getting past murder.  (Monday Oct 13 | post #137497)

It is bigotry when your ill will thoughts lead to actions like intolerance. The religious are the main ones being bigoted towards homosexuals. To act as if this is not the case is part of the problem. The amount of atheists who are intolerant of homosexuals is so small, it is laughable anyone mentions them with the actions of religious bigots. The religious books of Christians, Jews and Muslims all make for this bigotry. Yes, it is common to not like those like yourself. Sadly religion adds to this problem, not alleviates it. The holy books demand you be intolerant of different people.  (Sunday Oct 12 | post #137485)

Ok, now back to the actual point. Why not call out those who are intolerant?  (Sunday Oct 12 | post #137484)
