PS Those memes are pretty damn funny...because they are 100% true, according to the fiction book that you claim is the direct word of god.
You claim the Bible is "fiction". May I ask what makes you so sure?

Adults who believe the infinate universe just invented and powers itself let alone the dozens of diverse life forms in say a cup of pond water completely self sufficient and self created amuses me.

Better hope the Bible is fiction. It doesn't end well as a book of "myths and fables" goes for people who reject it's offer of salvation.

Your ranting and jeering of Christian beliefs is amusing to me too.
Your behaviour concerning your rabid unbelief is exactly what the Bible says it is

I'm not the world's most religious guy, but ... well, let me put it this way: I've never been exactly overwhelmed by the intellectual power of most atheists.

God reads posts on GTRI? Who knew?

I am sure he appreciates your help in drawing us out.

I would think if god was omniscient he wouldn't need JBs help, but that's just me being arrogant again.

So much of the Bible can't possibly be true. Ergo it's fiction. Here's a good place to start. Be sure to follow the links at the end of the article after you finish it.

The latter (imperfect and incomplete) description is supported by literally volumes of empirical observations. The former is supported by absolutely nothing.

Furthermore, the latter is completely logical once you understand the well defined and concrete governing principles whereas the former is a fanciful tale that defies all known scientific knowledge and, to be perfectly honest, strains credulity.

Theists keep trying to pretend modern scientific knowledge is the truly absurd of the two, but all they do is reveal their complete lack of knowledge and poor critical reasoning skills.

Theists always seem to relish this thought. The idea that those that don't buy into their nonsense will get what's coming to them always seems to get them revved up.

It isn't much of a grip if it can't be detected.

Free will? Does not force? No coercion? What happens to people who refuses to worship him? Damned for all time in the burning inferno of Hell, perhaps?

Omnipotent God can't squeeze your balls hard enough for you to notice?

He seemed a lot more powerful in the old days.

You misunderstand completely, my otherwise totally sensible pen-pal.

Atheists post these things to point out the logical failures of a belief system that is utterly unable to stand up to scrutiny. Its not that they believe in Satan. Its that they think your concept of Satan is so damn hilarious.

Classic. Not classy.

God already knows the heart.

If there is any purpose in exposing the unbelievers attitude or heart, is so that they can repent and come to the find the love of God. God purpose is never to arrogantly show dominance. It is always to bring people to humility that they might find the grace of God. Pride hurts the one that is afflicted by it. It harms God in no way.

Or theists for that matter.

Atheists tend to win on the intellectual level.

Faith is a choice. There are smart people on both sides.

Some of these memes are brilliant, this one is hilarious. Thanx a bunch for the link Muskogee!

Creation in six days.

TalKing serpents.

People living 900 years.

People turning to salt.

One family surviving a wolrdwide flood in a boat, and preserving every kind of animal by twos.

Building a tower to heaven, then waking up one day and realizing everyone was speaking a different language.

Parting the Red Sea.

Manna falling from the sky.

Walls falling from trumpet blasts.

The Nile turning to blood.

Talking bushes.

The sun stopping in the sky.

People walking in white hot ovens.

Virgins giving birth.

People walking on water.

Feeding 5,000 with 3 loaves and 2 fish.

Raising the dead.

People dying, then rising, then ascending to the sky.

Surviving inside a fish.

Does any of that sound remotely factual? Does "goddidit" really satisfy your intellect? Would anyone believe it if they hadn't been indoctrinated as children?

I'm always bemused on this forum as to how much time atheists devote toward studying religion, thinking about it, and talking about it.

Actions speak louder than words, and they are so definitely not who they pretend to be. The only question for me is how many of them even realize it themselves (or could deal with it if the did).

Don, there was a good show on of all channels, The Military Channel, last night. It was Biblical Myths Explained. They went through many of these and explained them quite easily. Great show.

You're more likely to get an answer if you are not so cryptic.
