But you guys won't stop. You said you weren't coming back until I was gone and here you are. Notice in that thread the non-believers getting along. Look up Vic's "saved by grace" thread... The believers can't help but fight with each other about who is more saved. Conflict is in the nature of the religious.

When I joined this forum there weren't many people challenging religion. It has been good to watch the change. Religion can't stand up to an open honest debate. It requires censorship to thrive. Notice that religious debates are never on prime time. Networks are still intimidated so they continue to censor. Hitchens could debate politics on TV, but not religion. As the debate comes more into the open, religion will continue to lose more ground.

I believe atheists have the right to voice their opinion,however. I honestly believe there should be sub forums to the Religion section. Example. A Christianity, Muslim, Wiccan, Atheist, and a general Religion section.

This would make the experience here a lot more enjoyable. I honestly feel this forum will soon die out and only atheists and agnostics will primarily post.

It won't be a death... it will be a rebirth. As will happen to the world when religion is gone.

Like the rebirth of Russia under Stalin.

Or China under Mao Tse-tung.

No silly. That's communism. We're talking about a democratic republic truly free of all religious nonsense. Utopia perhaps?

And this is what happens when Atheists no longer post.

The Day of Atonement

Arguments over who is and is not a true christian based on dogmatic stances of various biblical interpretations.

No one said that atheist should not post, what was presented was that there should be sub forums to support different religious views. I do understand if that would happen mot of he atheist would leave since they love to debate too much, and he Christian section would thrive.. I truly believe a lot of Christian have left because of all the atheist activity. It doesn't mean either side won, it just means most Christians have had enough of the silly post here.

Our view is linked with religion like it or not. We have religious issues. This is the place for that. You want us segregated and pushed aside. You want the non-believers censored and placed in another area. That's not how it works. This is the beginning of a new age where we aren't going to go away. Every time one of you starts evangelizing one of us is going to show up to counter you. And we all know ultimately religion can't withstand such constant questioning. Did you read the stats that Gen Xers (My generation) were about 21% Atheist or Agnostic? That the current generation of 18 to 22 year olds are like 34% Atheist or Agnostic. Not to mention the huge number of just unaffiliated non-religious? That protestant and other faiths are in decline and the only reason the catholic faith is holding it's small share is due to the flood of illegal latin immigrants? It's over. Christians aren't leaving. Religion is dying. You want to blame it on something else... that we're taking the fun out of it or that you're being oppressed. But that's not it. Religion had its time. Now we're moving on. Thank God.

Are you saying that anyone who doesn't agree with you is silly?

Notice in one thread everyone is joking around and cutting up. In the thread you quoted everyone criticizes everyone else for not being the right kind of Christian.

I'm an Astros fan, and I like the Rangers, too. I know some of you guys might like the Braves, the Giants, or even the As; but the important thing is that we all hate the Yankees. We just hate them in different ways. It's a concept that the Christians have totally forgotten.

It's been a long time since I read Nietzsche's Antichrist, but I think that is a pretty good paraphrase of it.

I'm surprised at this. Several of you guys claim to come from 'churched' backgrounds, and you forget so soon that even in Christianity there is a right, and a wrong.

The real fight is not between evolutionists and creationists, or apologists and skeptics; the fight that matters is the fight to maintain the purity of the gospel. The false prophet is far and away more dangerous than the atheist. This constant insecure harping about myths and fairy tales and the church keeping you down is a sideshow to the real struggle.

"I felt it necessary to write to you appealing that you contend earnestly for the faith which was once for all delivered to the saints." (Jude 3)

The faith was delivered once. For all. The legalists are wrong, and I called them on it. But it's not your fight -- the faith is for the saints -- so feel free to sit it out.

The false prophet is far and away more dangerous than the atheist. No offense, but you guys are a sideshow. You'll get all the proof you can stand at the parousia; just be patient.

There is a faith. It was delivered once. For all. The legalists are wrong, and I called them on it. But it's not your fight, so feel free to sit it out.
Each of you will claim that your interpretation is the correct one and the other guy is worshipping all wrong. The few times I tune in to those arguments it's petty stuff, like should I worship on Saturday or Sunday? Do I worship on Christmas or some Jewish holiday?

Rather than hate the Yankees together some of you get so sick of the other team's fans that you go watch college ball, or badminton.

The other guys might be rooting for the wrong team, but they still hate the Yankees same as you.

Not surprised. Just pointing out that the religious are combative by nature and always tend towards conflict.
