    I’m often amused by these atheist , who hate god/religion. It seems only reasonable that IF your Athiest and American that your in a pickle. How does one not believe in god, yet expect god given rights, per our constitution. We’re I come from that’s called being a hypocrit.

    Just my opinion.

      Their hypocrisy goes even further than that, Dirk. These are the same idiots who are terribly offended by any signs of religion, particularly Christian religion, probably because Muslims and Jews fight back when attacked by stupidity and immorality, but they never seem to consider that signs of secularism MIGHT just be offensive to those of us who are religious. What’s good for them seems not good for others. This is the true mark of the hypocrite. I need to get a T-shirt made up that says, “You being offended, offends me!”. 😉

      Sorta like the politicians in DC wussing out of Obamunist Care, leaving the rest of us to deal with its big steaming pile of laws, rules, regs, and costs, while they and their minions skate free of it. If it is so effing good, then it ought to apply to ALL Americans. If it is not good then it should apply to NO Americans. Too bad that they are incapable of “getting” the logic of this statement. Or, maybe they do get it but just don’t give a damn.

    Atheism IS A RELIGION. I you cannot prove god exists then you also cannot prove god does not exist.

    The only intellectually honest thing to be is an agnostic.

    My rights didn’t come from any god, my rights come from my being alive. If a god gave you your “rights” then that same god (or more likely some corrupt mouthpiece claiming to talk for that “god”) can take them away.

    Nobody gave me my rights, they are mine because I exist and I acknowledge that I only have the rights I can enforce with violence if necessary. If we really had a “right” to life then there could be no murders, so a right to life is a joke.

    Since when does your make believe supernatural deity confer any rights onto you or anyone on this planet for that matter? We are a product of nature, neither the supernatural nor the supranatural. If anyone here can offer EVIDENCE otherwise than step up and make your case! Atheism has never been about the non-belief of any god or spiritual deity, it has always been that a lack of credible evidence exists, not even a shred, that your so called supernatural timeless, omnipotent, omnibenevolent, and otherwise all knowing deity actually exists. Nature provides no rights, not to food, not to weapons, not to water, not to shelter, not even to survival. Nature and the natural world only provide you with the potential to survive.
    The claim and burden of proof that something exists always rests with the person making the claim. I personally under any circumstance have zero obligation to anyone to disprove any of their beliefs or belief systems. Us atheists also don’t accept due to lack of evidence that the easter bunny, santa, or the tooth fairy, and a whole host of other fantasy imagined characters exist. So must I also be agnostic to these things as well?
    All of these religious believers seem to be consumed by the logical fallacy that their beliefs must be right and if enough of us believe in it, it must be true. Thus all the gods of Egypt, Rome and Greece are still all alive and well. It must be true because somebody, somewhere in the world just might believe in them.
    So if I can invent something in my head, publish a few books on it Eg. Scientology, and market it enough, convince enough gullible sheeple to believe in the shit I’m selling them, well then it must be true.
    Can any one of you provide valid physical, not ethereal evidence for the existence of your supernatural deity? And go figure, I was always told that their was only one ‘god’. But when I question christians about the muslim god they say it doesn’t exist. The muslims believe otherwise. Thus there are at least two of these supernatural deities creeping around. NO EVIDENCE for any one of them, or just as much for the easter bunny.
    So yes agnostic would be intellectually dishonest and against both my critical thinking and critical empathy skill set. Thus atheist I remain and choose to never believe in anything, especially a pathologically old testament tyrant and a pope who decided all by his lonesome to include what gospels he thought made the story he wanted the church to sell to it’s very illiterate people of the times.

    Ro 2:11 For there is no respect of persons with God.

    2Pe 3:9 ¶ The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance.

    1Co 1:18 For the preaching of the cross is to them that perish foolishness; but unto us which are saved it is the power of God.

    2Th 2:10 And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved.

    Ro 8:7 Because the carnal mind is enmity against God: for it is not subject to the law of God, neither indeed can be.

    For those who think there is no God(Creator) is equal to denying you have no Father and Mother.The denier can go on deceiving themself until they take their last breath as they tumble into eternity,seperated from the truth forever.A relationship with the Living God,Creator of all things visible and invisible,is a one-on-one relationship,not a church membership/affiliation.The truth of this relationship/reconciliation of The Creator with his Creation is revealed in his inspired Word,The Authorised 1611 King James Bible.Knowing the Creator is not an intellectual exercise,but a spiritial one.

    The scoffer will say that there is nothing Supernatural about it,Jesus is not who he said/displayed he is.The Bible is just a compilation of Fables/Allogories/Metaphors and not a true historical account.To that I say the greatest proof of truth in The Book is he Nation of Israel.

    The Truth is the Truth and needs no defense,regardless if it is acted upon or not.

      If you are happy with your religion then good for you, but quoting a book that has meaning for you (the bible) at me, means absolutely nothing to me.

      The only problem I have with religions is when their believers try to influence big government to impose the tyranny of their beliefs on everybody else at the point of the big government gun.

    Dirk, the Atheist does not hate religion, or god. You can’t hate something you don’t believe in. As Stefan points out, you could search the whole world over and you won’t find anyone who holds a seething anger toward Zeus. That god, and that religion simply died a natural death once nobody believed.

    But belief moves on. While the ancients had hundreds of gods to choose from, today (in the west) we have hundreds of interpretations of various middle eastern mythologies to choose from. Christians, Jews, Muslims. Those are the three major categories of myth in use today in the west, but there is no consensus among the various adherents of these competing fantasies due to their converging interpretations of the same basic documents.

    And then there are the eastern mythologies as well, all of which are still vitally alive which Christians Jews and Muslims would all disregard altogether. Oh, and Mormonism, Scientology, and various up and coming cults just waiting for political power to give them status as a bona fide religion.

    What inspires irritation though among rational people who have determined the lunacy of these ideas is the ongoing political coercion to believe in the unbelievable, and the concurrent prodding to give money to the frauds who organize the unbelievable into tax exempt entities. Add in the sex molester priesthoods and you have a real springboard for anger.

    Oops.. wrong word. “due to their converging interpretations…” should have been written “due to their diverging interpretations…”
