The thread is about suicide, not teen pregnancy. Typical lame tactic though. When you can't face facts, you deflect to something else or just launch into personal attacks.

I'm sorry. As soon as you submit any data linking suicide to atheism, I'll start taking the thread seriously.

I also would like to apologize for those personal attacks...I'm very sorry, atheists. I was just kidding. (I mean I sure didn't make anyone else personally so I'm assuming that's who you meant, Jeff.)

This thread is NOT about car insurance! Please refrain from personal attacks! Well, unless they're against atheists. Like in the thread title.

p.s. I don't know much about apologetics, but I DID stay at a Holiday Inn last night.

I am serious, I don't understand what you are suggesting.
So God was “TRYING” something and some human prevented what God wished?

LOL at the irony, when you said you are serious.

This is the world atheism and secularism as created. More division, more hopeless, more conflict, less tolerance and less empathy. People have bought into the lie that there is no God, and no purpose to live. We are merely souless flesh and bone here to consume resources then die and rot. The vast majority of us will be completely forgotten from the next generations that get their turn at living.

And the research has shown a direct link between atheism and suicide.

That's the bed you made, so now you can get to lie in it. It is just sad that atheists dedicate so much time out of the few short decades we get in life into tearing down an institution that gives hope and healing to the masses.
Well since you're into the blame game, thank you jeffbase40 for the death and destruction in the Middle East for the last century.

I'm going to try to be a billionaire against God's wishes.

You can't handle straight up facts so you have to resort to straight up mockery. Nice going.

So are you personally praying for a natural disaster to take your life because otherwise you might face greater personal hardships in other forms if you lived?

Cheaper to drive, and backseat sex is less risky?

Damn you atheists for taking the excitement and thrill out of life.
