I hit 5-Oh last week.
Geographical evidence says it didn't. The science of the earth.
Here's the whole problem with your argument. There isn't an "ideology" of atheism. Atheism is a singular stance or statement on one question. My being an atheist doesn't define me as far as what I believe morally, or ethically, or what I like or don't like. There's nothing with atheism that informs my actions that you could point to, as you have with religions. When a christian refuses service to a homosexual, or protests an abortion clinic, or funerals, or lobbies against birth control....there are specific beliefs you can point to that inform those actions from the specific religion in question. Atheism isn't a system, it doesn't have rules, it doesn't have mantras....or anything like that. The only thing all atheists have in common for certain is non-belief in god(s). I've been to atheist conventions where I've encountered drastically different personalities than mine. I've seen republican atheists, conservative, anti-abortion, racist, flat earther atheists, 9/11 conspiracy, belief in alien abductions......I mean all kinds of atheists and none of these things you can point back to and say "oh he believes that because of this scripture in the book of atheism".....because there is no book of atheism or ideology of atheism. Atheism doesn't mean a person believes in science, or is liberal, or is anti-religious, or has no morals...or anything like that. The only thing me being an atheist did, was force me to look at my beliefs deeply and decide what and who I wanted to be as a person. It also gave me a thirst for knowledge and a drive to live the best life I possibly could. By your own admission in your last sentence, we have no written dogma....so I'm not sure how you can call it a faith, when there's nothing to examine with regards to what we believe. Now as far as morality is concerned, I don't go to my "atheism" to inform that. I follow Humanism with is a moral system with a set of beliefs and can certainly provide an excellent reason why genocide is wrong. So instead of attacking atheism for what it isn't....how about you talk to an atheist on an individual level and find out what it is that the person actually does believe and stop assuming you already know everything about us. Your whole rant here kind of proves what I said before and why I come here....to clear up misconceptions and confusions....which you do have. Hopefully you learn from this.
i hope so, but you can never know with our current leader.
You are trying to use reason with her and she doesn't want to listen. So stop trying reason. Just say No. Two letters. It can be a complete sentence. Try it. "NO." It will be infinitely more effective than reasoning with the unreasonable.
Only by the second definition:
They came for various reasons.
So you can?t answer that? Sounds like you are dodging a simple , direct question.
Priests don't generally get involved in politics.
I contacted my lawyer been trying to schedule a meeting for a while now, but the secretary called me to call off 2 meeting already and I am waiting for a call to reschedule.
The NT letters traditionally called the Pauline Epistles were actually written by at least three different authors. Four if 2 Thessalonians had its own unique author, five if you count Hebrews, which never claims to be written by Paul but was attributed to him by the Church Fathers starting with Clement of Alexandria. For simplicity's sake, lets not count Hebrews and say that there are 13 NT epistles attributed to Paul.
I am certain that a tri-omni doesn't exist because the abilities create paradoxes.
BLECCCH!!! Who in the hell puts salt on watermelon?!! Just nasty!!

Only the Christian god can judge who is a Christian. The rest of you are insufferable posers and hypocrites.
Trump is not a deal maker ,he is a deal breaker.

Good morning to all the tall girl haters, zombie raccoons, echo chambers, diet coke drinkers, misandrists, crazy cat ladies, petite nuggets of fun, slap-a-ho's, misunderstood sarcastic folks, world travelers, and Francisco. Who else is up?! I'm already ready for bed!!
Majority Christian countries that are *secular* are for the most part more tolerant. This is the key difference. Before Christian countries were primarily secular they were not tolerant at all. So the credit doesn't go to Christianity (or any religion, for that matter) but to secularism.
