"Only an immoral, insane god would "bless" a family´╗┐ with a baby that the god has marked with a sin for an act it didn't commit, then kill himself to save us from his eternal damnation."

Excerpt from: Religion is the answer? To which question?

Atheist Egbert: Hundreds of thousands of atheists are already active as atheists, in atheist titled groups.

Don Quijote: The online flame-wars are nothing but people sitting behind the safety of their computer writing things they would rarely say in public, face to face.

Getting out in public, and talking with believers who don't spend their days online fighting with atheists is eye-opening. You'd be surprised how many people approach me in public because of an obviously heretical t-shirt, and question me, which allows for a conversation, not an argument.

I remain in contact with quite a few people who stopped me in parking lots, stores, coffee shops etc., who did in fact read the books I recommended.

If you stop talking at people and start speaking with them, you will find many people willing to have a discussion. Progress is made.

Your internet flame-wars do not stop legislation. They are nothing more than an argument between you and some other person.

Most atheists were at one time believers. That fact proves that believers, can accept science, reason and logic.

To make a blanket statement that "They believe the development, understaning and our place in the world comes from whichever bible they believe in." is to say all believers are identical, drones.

They are not. They are people.

Comment 150 @ Roedy As I mentioned above:

Transubstantiation during the eucharist IS the pagan cannibal ritual of devouring the deified leader. If you believe it is not the actual body and blood of your martyred leader, you nonetheless eat him symbolically. If you have moved beyond those primitive practices...good for you, now dump the rest of the nonsense and we are good to go.

Might you sue a church that prays for your brothel to burn down when it does?
