When I investigated those other belief systems I found that I had already thought of the few good ideas that they had and the rest appeared to me to be mysticism fluff and balms for the emotionally oriented.

Getting rid of one set of nonsense does not demand that it be replaced with a different set of nonsense.

Yep: Them be mighty rational reasons to "hate" someone, esp. in general!

3) I love the Hebrew Bible (Old Testament) for its values.

Hey. Who doesn't love good principles? We atheists just don't emotionally crave the nasty Godhead that you require to accompany them!

4) I don't mind its myths either, though I don't believe them to be literally true.

And neither do we, and yet, you "hate" us for those well-thought-out beliefs. Holy Wowzerz! Such nice Christian ethics on display!

Well now, my logic-based views, which you claim to hate me for..., on all this are here in my follow-on points below And thus we come to:

Oh blah blah blah. This is, apparently what the theist morons on the Koo-Koo Khristian Websites, like...

Christian Answers Network [Home]

A Front-Row Seat to African Faith | Christianity Today

Answers in Genesis - Creation, Evolution, Christian Apologetics

http://www.bennyhinn.org/

CARM - Christian Apologetics and Research Ministry

...love to endlessly prattle on about, without any shred of rational perspectives to fall back on! Compelling arguments for sure!

I could go on and list literally hundreds, if not thousands, of examples of such factually empty blitherings, against which there is no defense by us, since their authors simply won't participate in a reasonable discussion...

This kind of stuff has endeared the Defenders of Christianity to rote-chant and automatically believe, and others who read their stuff also won't choose to EVER question it?

Again, my once-mere-suspicions about the total lack of interest in ANY honest debate about such beliefs turns out to be absolutely, and oh so very VERY true.

Well OK then... keep it up.

Meantime, we "spiteful, unethical, angry, sadistic, terrorist-minded, disaffected and mentally unbalanced" atheists (again, I'm sure those are the very adjectives they have used to describe us, right? Am I right? You betcha... Right here is the written proof! Oh, and the ardent Christians defenders eat it up and tehn regurgitate it on demand, like stuff that some half-starved hoodlum street dogs would do to whatever they find in an alley trashcan...!).

Wow. No wonder it'd be so very easy to argue you down, even if you would ever rise to the occasion! [Frady Cats!]

And as a result, it's no wonder you guys are getting the bad reputation you're getting!

Man up, guys. Answer a few questions, and be openly prepared to possibly learn about yourself and your origins in this Universe! Such knowledge will NOT kill you, or deny you anything in your future, to wit:

If you are right, then off you go to fairy-land, singing "Nyah Nyah!". And if we Godless heathen-pagan atheists are right, you won't be missing anything, now will you?
