Perhaps he was too busy doing his paper route to concentrate on the course.

TKramar sounds like a person who has completely withdrawn from society...There is a name for that in the medical journals...Just can't think of it at the moment.

If I go up and ASK you about your religious preferences, then feel free to spout off about them. Otherwise, they're unsolicited, and unwelcome. And I don't care WHERE you're coming from. I don't care if we ostensibly share the same faith...I don't want to hear it. If I wanted to hear that crud all the time, I'd go to church every Sunday. I haven't gone in years.

As I have said earlier, Mormons and Jehovah's Witnesses seem to be the guiltiest of bringing unsolicited opinions on religion, but atheists run close behind them. If I didn't ASK you to bring up the topic of religion (in daily life), then WHY are you doing it? Just leave me alone with your anti-religion crusade, and I'll certainly leave you alone with discussion of...well, anything. I believe in keeping to myself, and I don't start up conversations with strangers. Small talk is NOT part of my repertoire.


Need I remind you, atheist know more about religion then the religious.

Why do you care that the VAST majority of people on the planet believe in God?

Personally i could care less if people worship Jesus, Allah, birds, frogs, chickens or a rock. Moderator cut: Inappropriate language do i care? thats their right...
That's right and that's because they are DEMONIC.

If they truly did not believe in God then they wouldn't even bother. They know he's real, they know where they're heading, and so they're just here to kick stuff up as much as possible before their final destination.

No, people just need to learn not to push their beliefs on others, regardless of what those beliefs are. It isn't difficult.

I don't consider myself religious though. I don't go to a church or read a Book about it. My belief comes down to one thing, and one thing only, and it's a conscious choice on my part. I don't seek out other information on it, because it isn't going to change what I think and believe, it isn't going to change my experiences, it is going to have no effect on something that's subjective.

Are you serious? You think Atheists are demons? If you are then I would suggest that is one of the worst (false) attacks on atheists I've ever heard.

Yes...most of the religious believe they have a lock on the passage to heaven and never stop to think about the fact that since primitive mankind first began to make marks on the walls of caves god worship has been thriving. Each generation has totally removed any possibility of real individual feelings being developed by callously indoctrinating the next with their individual belief. As we speak if one includes the south sea islands there are more than 4000 gods. Take the Christian faith and add over 44,000 denominations, conventions, sects, cults, sub cultures etc.

Those who have been purposefully and willfully indoctrinated with subjective information to replace their inherent desire and thirst for knowledge, real factual information...will never realize the true feeling of personal accomplishment because they must give credit to some invisible man in the sky. I believe it's one of the saddest outcomes of mankind's difficult trek through the eons. I believe brainwashing infants and small children with fables and unprovable myths should be considered a form of child abuse and that those who do it should be removed from society by incarceration.

Like being able to predict the weather, or to find the cure for cancer?

Those are still unknowable. Science has also yet to create, from scratch, human life, except by using the biological means already in use.
