But another observation wis while they are swift to argue with Christians and Jews, they are tolerant of Muslims. Scared?

We give a crap about faith because 1. it is factually wrong in every way, and 2. they try to legislate how I am supposed to live my life.

Where do you get that we are tolerant of muslims? They are the worst(most dangerous) out of all of them at the moment.

Never been on meds.

Because you seem willing to dive into the lake of fire, I consider it my duty to keep you entertained until you splash down. After that you are on your own.

Well that settles it then.

Tell me one more time how the Flood could have happened because Mt. Everest wasn't' very high back then. The new folks here deserve a look at your wit and wisdom. You're a riot.

Oh it's working. The number of people in this country that identify themselves as religious is dropping. The Number of Atheists, Agnostics, and People who identify themselves as Non-Religious or "Spiritual" are increasing. You guys are losing ground in this country. I could care less about the third world hell holes you mission to. You're losing America. And that's so wonderful for those of us that enjoy true freedom and liberty. The attempt at creating a Theocracy failed. And the believers are being seen as nut cases more and more every single day. Each Generation becomes a little less concerned with God. And that... makes me hopeful for the future.

Settles what?

Why should I tell you a story you know and have rejected because you are too "intelligent" to accept it?

I am sure the "new folks" can simply look back at the "fossils" of my posts and leap to their own conclusions.

I don't think some people really understand how competitive the scientific community is. If there were a rational way to tear down evolution... there are scientists that would LOVE to be the Next Darwin.

Exactly. Who's one of the heroes of 20th century physics?

The guy that tore down Newtons laws of motion after hundreds of years of being "right". Einstein, with Relativity.

The guys that tear down the existing "dogma" are heroes in science, and heretics in religion.

It's beyond ridiculous to suggest that there's some sort of conspiracy (by scientists who are mostly Christian, at least in the US, by the way) to push evolution or the Big Bang theory in order to remove any need for God, or to debunk religion. Science is entirely restricted to the study of natural physical phenomenon, miracles and supernatural stuff are by definition precisely NOT even a subject for scientific study. If anyone can point to the mathematics of God and how to go about performing experiments to replicate miracles, please step forward and I'll retract the above statement.

Exactly. Scientists don't deal with proving or disproving God. What they're learning is that you just simply don't need such a being for these things to happen on their own.

Exactly. Reading the Bible cover to cover is one of the things that destroyed my faith in God. It's the best book to read if you want to become an Atheist or Agnostic. Most believers have read very little of it.

I'll second that. Reading the bible cover to cover in an official academic setting is what permantly debunked it for me. Most christians have never really read the bible, but rather they have "studied" it under the guidance of some teacher or author. Small excerpts are taken here and there and put together to illustrate some moral lesson, but never are people told to read whole books in a contiguous fashion. If they did then they (at least many) would realize how silly it all is.

Often under an apologist focus twisting many of it's meanings in an attempt to force the puzzle pieces to fit.

I love the "You're reading it wrong" or "You're not using the proper context."

If there is a god and I meet him/her on judgement day, I have a few questions.

1. Where did he/she come from?

2. If one religion is the correct religion, why do people who practice that religion have a definite advantage, live longer, not die painful deaths,......

3. Why have all the miracles happen a long long time ago? If god would just show up and do something.....

Shouldn't it be why don't people who practice that religion have a definite advantage, etc.

Some claim miracles are happening all the time, just not in any objectively verifiable way. If someone recovers from a potentially terminal disease, that's a miracle. If they die, it's simply the unknowable will of God.
