  • If that's the case, why do Christians try to keep their followers away from atheists? Why do they report atheist posts on social media sites? Why do they ban atheists from posting on church sites?
    • MisterKatt
      Good points.. thank-you.
    • Linda Joy
      Why would an atheist WANT to post on church sites? Is it their craving for contention and combat? BTW my church doesn't try to keep us from atheists.
    • Linda Joy
      Really?! You couldn't come up with anything smarter than THAT?! You're even a joke as a troll!! And again you claim I'm an atheist repeller, while you chase me all over AB! That's the epitome of your hypocritical behavior to this point! I don't even have to do or say anything to make you look stupid. You do it yourself!!
  • No if one doesn't believe nothing will change that. I tried going to church many times and reading the new testament the more of it I read the less I believe. As far as sitting in church the crap they preach there Ill never believe.,

      Fact is, the simple existence of atheists makes religious groups stronger - the religious are at their best when they have a group of people to hate and crusade against. Funny thing is -- republicans are exactly the same in that regard.
  • No, because atheists don't have any need to argue about it - because they know there is no argument. Imaginary god creatures are not real and do not exist. That is a fact - and they know it. Believers have been desperately trying to prove their god is real for thousands of years, and have failed EVERY TIME. There's a reason for that -- there is no god there, and nobody has ever proven otherwise. Same for leprechauns, Santa Claus, goblins, Middle Earth, Voldemort and the easter bunny. Christianity and its very silly Zombie Jew on a Stick myth remains to be one of the silliest cult myths on the planet. It would need a lot more than atheism to strengthen a nonsense story like that, which Christians have NEVER been able to validate, prove or substantiate in over two millennia of desperately trying.

      The other terrible weakness that Christianity has is that it is 100% hypocrisy. They blab all day long about Jesus and his teachings - and 100% of Christians consciously refuse to live by his NT teachings every day. Nobody is impressed by a large cult full of two-faced, bigoted, judgmental hypocrites - except the followers themselves, they are VERY impressed by their own bullcrap, that's for sure.
    • Linda Joy
      "atheists don't have any need to argue about it" So how many hours a day to you spend online bashing Christians claiming you don't need to? Why do you do it if you don't need to? What do you accomplish? pot/kettle/hypocrite?
    • Linda Joy
      "Believers have been desperately trying to prove their god is real for thousands of years, and have failed EVERY TIME." Then why are there BILLIONS more religious than non-religious if all attempst have failed? https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_religious_populations Looks to me like atheists have lost the battle and can't stand it that they have, so they feel the need to rant LOUDER AND LONGER! To convince themselves, because they're not convincing anyone else. lol
    • OrangeDonRump
      To answer your other question, Linda, I'm not arguing with believers about their silly cult BS, I state facts and leave them. Or, answer questions asked of me. Stating a fact in the face of lies posted by other people is simply what Thinking People do... it's never good or healthy for a person to let a lie just sit there without a factual counterpoint. Again, it isn't arguing, it is simply stating facts in the wake of stupid, dishonest, never-validated cult commentary.
    • Linda Joy
      Fact: There are billions more religious than non-religious so obviously their "tactics" whatever they choose ARE WORKING! And I never claimed to be Christlike, in fact I've often said I'm not a good Christian. And you're not important enough in my life to make me angry. I only get angry when I care. You, are like a mosquito.
    • Chicagoan
      There are all kinds of times in history when THE MAJORITY was wrong. Like when slavery was OK with practically everyone (except the slaves). Your "majority is the best position" is a fallacy, Linda, flawed to the very last. And you really go out of your way to show everyone how unChristlike you are.
    • Chicagoan
      "in fact I've often said I'm not a good Christian." -- Nobody's gonna disagree with that. It's no wonder you worship someone like Trump - the filth of the earth, and yammer about "jesus" out of the other side of your mouth. What two-faced hypocrisy.
    • Linda Joy
      Worship Trump? O.k. I guess lies are just your thing. You know you're lying and don't care. Do atheists have any rules about lying and telling the truth? Or hypocrisy? Well, this site still has rules against personal attacks at least that's why I was pb'd once.
    • Linda Joy
      I didn't say the majority was right. I said the fact that there are WAAAY more people of faith means that the preaching or whatever tactics are being used are working which disproves the claim otherwise.
    • 1465
      Is it just coincidence, or do the majority of agnostics naturally gravitate to the Left?
    • Chicagoan
      "Well, this site still has rules against personal attacks" More rules that you violate every day, and yet, you report it when you think anyone does it right back to you. What a hypocrite.
  • No, I think it just feeds the atheists need for contention and persecution. And the Christian's assumes the need to defend their God and their beliefs and the atheist finds great satisfaction when they can get a Christian to loose their composure and get angry. I don't think it serves to educate or convert anyone.
    • OrangeDonRump
      "I don't think it serves to educate or convert anyone." That is something I believe about you, 100%, and that is - you find little value in people being educated. Which is the foundation of religion. Religion THRIVES in places where education is poor... like Africa, parts of China, the southern US States, etc.
    • Linda Joy
      And in you? Wrong again, I've educated thousands. And you're educating many on what an atheist troll is.
  • I believe they do, because they are coming from a standpoint of knowing that there will be those that will rally against God. However, if you look into history, then you will learn exactly where atheism arose from and with who, (which some Christians have done) and WHY, which very little atheists bother to do, they don't examine there own beliefs, they hence end up doing exactly that which they accuse the believer of doing, swallowing someone else's idea, for which they have not explored.
  • That depends on two things: the Christian with whom they are discussing the matter, and the quality of their arguments.
  • Atheists deny your imaginary friend that you can’t prove is real due to no physical evidence. Religious people are typically angry and hateful towards atheists due to intolerance of difference. It’s the religious people who is involved in their subconscious mind and brainwashed to believe in religious delusions
  • Arguing about something you don't believe in is delusional. Christians have no need to strengthen their faith - they just dislike debating with fools. "To argue with a person who has renounced his sense of reason is like administering medicine to the dead." - Thomas Paine
  • I've had an unholy desire to invite some atheists to a dinner and then serve the most fabulous gourmet dinner that has ever been concocted and, after dinner, ask them if they believe there was a cook.” – Ronald Reagan 😆
