I don't trust them because they act all friendly until they find out you're an atheist and then they treat you like you are some green rotten slime that oozed out from under a rock somewhere and if you have the misfortune of having a good friend that converts to fundyism, they will drop you like a hot potato and it can hurt.
So your opinion of so-called "fundie atheists" is LITERALLY meaningless.
I DO, however, like that you label me as a fundie atheist, since I have never even claimed no god exists, and actually hold a god as a possibility. Its not a high possibility in the least, but it is POSSIBLE. (however, no one has been able to actually produce objective evidence to support the idea, which is why I disbelieve it).
Huh????I suppose. After accepting some very silly laws that prevent Israelites from eating cooked pork or that require the use of magical rituals to detect if your wife has been cheating, they became better people who would know to release their slaves.
Not that this has anything to do to with the topic but Abraham Lincoln was no "dangerously pragmatic atheist." And the North was very involved in religion. Not that that alone gave Abraham his morals but well you can read for yourself...http://www.mrlincolnandfreedom.org/i...39&subjectID=3 http://www.mrlincolnandfreedom.org/p...jectID=3&ID=39 & the following...Oh, wait, except the Emancipation Procalamtion came from a dangerously pragmatic atheist who was involved in a massive and incredibly destructive war between the relatively secular and industrial North and the relatively pious South.
And though Lincoln rejected the God's-on-our-side certainty of Northern abolitionist preachers, he eventually came to see the Civil War as divine retribution for the national sin of slavery. "Lincoln is clearly a believer in God and providence, yet it's a more mysterious God than his contemporaries worshiped," says Mark Noll, a history professor at the University of Notre Dame. http://www.usnews.com/news/history/a...us-uncertainty
I presented observed fact which you couldn't refute.You are equating the relative power level and degree of politeness of the UN with the Old Testament God.
The UN signs resolutions. God... well, going Biblical on someone is a phrase.
Nice "dodge" I'm a Ford man myself.Your beliefs. You are not plural and you do not speak for Christianity as a whole, or even a significant fraction.
That can be said of any group of people, your point? Nobody's trustworthy?In a room full of ten random Christians you could easily be the only one to interpret it your exact way. Even within whatever church you go to, I'm going to guess not everybody thinks the same thing.
That what is? And if they are in error does that mean the bible promotes their erroneous assumption?Whatever a believer believes, they do so with all their heart. There is often no room for doubt in their mind that this is the literal Biblical interpretation.
Well I should hope you don't change your mind in the near future I guess.You're not for sale because it is *my* belief that slavery is wrong. Your market value is probably low anyway, unless you have blonde hair.
There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.
