    Name calling? Now who's insulting, criticizing, and demeaning? Where do the scriptures say, "Go ye therefore and call names?"

    Sorry but whatever your opinion, my original comment is likely true.

    Nowhere do the scriptures say to be a doormat and if you ever met me you would know that I am not one.

    The reason most atheists post here is to put the opposing arguments out there. Talk to any of us and you'll hear a similar story of being raised in some flavor or other of Christianity by people who were very devout and yet their ability to answer some specific questions left much to be desired.

    For instance, the outright lies that are constantly told and retold by the YECs about the geological timeline and evolution are finally starting to be recognized as the insanity it is by the mainstream. The creationist "interpretation of the evidence" gets pretty easily exposed as biased nonsense as soon as you get into any real conversation with them.

    There are already plenty here that identify as Christians yet they don't feel compelled to deny scientific evidence only because it doesn't jive with the bible. The hardcore hangers on of YEC theory are a lost cause. They don't have the minimum required number of brain cells to rub together and make it click. Those people are not the minds we're out to change here.

    Think of it as teaching others how to play chess by first showing them how not to play chess by playing with irritable children that don't understand the rules and constantly flip the board over in frustration. Those that are smart enough to understand that games are won by default as well as checkmate will soon find themselves a bunch of little Bobby Fishers when they realize exactly what a clump of delicate, petulant children they're up against.

    You're obviously very insecure or you would have to boast about you manliness. That's a sign of immaturity. I'm through with children' hour.

    Can you give an example of most atheists here acting like spoiled brats? Then maybe you could answer a long list of very hard questions that the YECs constantly turn tail and run from like...

    Well, like spoiled little brats.

    I disagree. Most of the atheists I have known, who are vocal about their beliefs, have an axe to grind.

    That seems especially true of the majority that post in this forum.

    Many of us are former religious folks. Perhaps it's the desire to help others think critically or to try to understand the dogma we once followed, or to challenge others to question their beliefs. I find the different flavors of christianity fascinating. As a former catholic, I find all organized religion to be pretty much equally mythological.

    More than you know. Statistically, even.

    http://newsfeed.time.com/2010/09/28/survey-atheists-know-more-about-religion-than-believers/

    " Why did atheists do so well? The study concluded that those who reject faith often do so after growing up in a religious household, and studying and deliberating keeping the faith. Also, atheists and agnostics tend to be better educated in general. Why did Christians do so poorly? It may be because once someone accepts a faith, they stop examining it."

    A bit off topic but I see your sig line and I see who it quotes. Seems to me like both of you are beneath engaging. So rather than acknowledging you as a human being who is fit to have a discusion with I will simply bid both of you adieu.

    You guys really are the lowest common denominator. I personally think the two of you are the epitome of everything that is wrong with this once great nation. May God have mercy on us all.

    I just love how you neglect to mention how atheists can't have a thread about why they don't like religion without the resident christians posting crap they know is asinine. :rofl:

    I don't post a lot, (unless CD is spewing his drivel about Atheism.) Maybe the occasional comment here and there when I just can't help myself.

    But I lurk, I read most all the threads, and I have a very good reason to do so.

    Some folks here........ are insane. Since coming here I've found insane people are highly entertaining.

    They're fricken hilarious!

    Some of the crud I've seen posted here ( by supposedly rational, educated people living in the most advanced civilization the world has ever known) is simply unbelievable.

    And I hope ya'll don't think this place would be a peaceful paradise without the Atheists, thats a laugh. Have you ever read some of these urination matches around here? Not an Atheist in sight and you people squabble like 3 year olds.

    Harmless Christians my achin ass!

    The Protestants and Catholics were still killing each other in my lifetime, and given enough of a chance and the right circumstances most religions would continue to do so. The only time out they would take is to burn all the Atheists on a cross....upside down. And thats not even a shot at religion.... people kill each other, thats what they do. Religion just seems to be a high ranking reason.

    I'm not disputing the age of the earth or the universe.

    But basically what you are saying is, reality is what science says it is?

    So if science changes our concept of reality in the future, does that mean you are not currently living in reality?
