Yes. How many Muslims are in the news? All 1.6 billion of them? One percent of them (which is 16 million)? A thousandth of a percent of them (which is 16,000)? Much less than that?

Do you read the news with any logic in your perception?

Poor thing; you are "Lost"
But there is always "Hope"

It's not the Middle Ages anymore. Christianity's moved on from stoning heretics and apostates.

And so now you don't believe in 'anything'. Probably not even yourself.

Some of them have anyway. There always has been, still is, and likely will continue to be, very bad apples in that particular barrel.

Christianity in it's pure ancient form was absolutely brilliant. We have had war from the beginning of history....No one knows how to put an end to war. Christ had the simple answer and no one seemed to get the message..."Love your enemy" - THAT is the only thing that works. Atheists who have a hate on for Christianity could never come up with this concept. They can't even love Christians let alone their enemy.

Pretty how humans act when there is not any accountability. In short is is a textbook example of a man - made religion with a god made very much in man's own image.
You forgot to mention that the boss knew this is exactly what would happen from the beginning.

This claim makes no sense. The obvious example is the idea that he created a creation that he had to do a factory recall on in the flood, keeping one breeding group which turned out to be no better than before. The whole thing is a story of an incompetent coming with ad hoc 'fixes' which do not work. The Jesus sacrifice and resurrection are no better than the Flood. Nothing has changed. We still have the same sins. The get - out clause is utterly confusing and full of small print. The 'God knew it all from the beginning' claim will not wash and only a denial of evident fact and a reliance on faith in defiance of fact will allow someone to claim that God knows what he is doing and it's all part of His plan.

As the old saying (1) goes: atheist does not believe in nothing, and atheist believes in everything - except gods.

(1) somewhat inaccurate, but snappy and to the point as is 'A Christian believes in nothing - except God'.
