Say this pledge!
I ____________________, do hereby to this day forward pledge not to believe in 2000 year old ignorant nonsense that is touted today in this era as absolute truth that was written down in a book over 2 millennium ago. I hereby pledge not to be manipulated nor cajoled into believing in invisible deities, ghosts, spooks, angels, demons, devils, saviors, prayers, miracles, souls, blessings, virgin births, preachers, life after death, NDE's, heaven, hell, witches, spells, visions, prophets, apparitions and assorted nonsense that purported as truth because it was written down by broken down drunken and drugged up goat and sheep herders of their day.
I also state that I am a person of sound mind and use my own common sense and I do not fool easily nor do I cater to, nor bow down to emotional pleading and psuedo religious authority, I think with my mind and not my emotions, nor do I think with my internal feelings. I also refuse to be manipulated by what a majority of people want me to foolishly believe is true.
Say this pledge!
A stance of atheism represents truth in this exact period of time.
Atheism does not need to punt to faith in order to convince people believe in the unbelievable.
Atheism does not need the testimony from people who supposedly lived over 2000 years ago written down in a book, whom claimed that miracles, wishes, hope, faith, lies, ghosts, dreams, visions, revelations, false prophets, nor does atheism need to lie about things that cannot be proved to exist, like Christianity does to shore up it's own false philosophy.
Atheism is the stance that represents absolute truth for this exact moment in time.
Atheism does not need to promise something in the future that it cannot up-hold for the sake of some one's emotional stress, nor for a person's inability to cope with the fear of the unknown.
Christianity gives one the false perception that they are for some reason, better than those whom do not believe as they do.
Christianity represents nothing but lies and falsehoods in order to manipulate people and to control the way most people would not normally think.
Christianity is the evil dark sludge of the world.
Christianity is nothing more than filthy lies created and spread by liars.
An unknown uneducated author given the poetic license of Paul of Taurus, whom was a self confessed murderer.
From his own internal paranoia, he feared for his own life for punishment of his wrong doings.
He invented his own savior whom he never saw except through his own imaginary hallucinations, he being a mentally ill schizophrenic idiot fool psychopath.
Now widespread and worshipped as absolute universal truth, the words written down 2000 years ago by a mentally paranoid schizphrenic lunatic.
The early christian settlers claim to have come over to America to flee religious persecution, yet they could not live peacefully with the Indians whom already had discovered this land.
Instead of using what the Bible teaches about love thy neighbor and turn the other cheek, love thy enemies, they coined the Indians as infidels and savages and killed most of the Indians and claimed this land for themselves and call this a christian nation.
This is a christian nation with the highest percentage of drunks, rapes, child molestation, murders, thief's, embezzlement, liars, every crime against humans imaginable.
If you claim to be a christian, it's because you have been indoctrinated from the beliefs of another christian. You have ignorantly and blindly assumed to believe that someone who calls themselves a christian has found some unrevealed hidden truth that you could not have gotten on your own.
You have been stupid enough to believe that you have been especially chosen to have been placed here on earth by predestination from an invisible god that loves everybody, except those who choose not to believe in his son, which is himself disguised as himself.
Stupid christians quotes:
Invite Jesus into your heart!
My heart and prayers goes out to you!
I'll pray for you!
Have you been saved by the blood of the lamb?
You're going to hell, but I'm saved!
I have a relationship with god.
I have faith in Jesus.
Satan also believes in Jesus.
I love my church.
I love my pastor.
You think that because you have been specially chosen to have this revelation of truth revealed to you by other christians, that you are above others because of your ignorant beliefs.
While being blinded to the fact that you're a self-righteous jerk ass-hole!
Just because everyone at your church licks your ass clean out on Sundays, this confirms to you in your mind that you are absolutely correct in your silly stupid ignorant beliefs.
You love how the church makes you feel, all pious and righteous inside.
You're so shallow and self-centered that you don't have enough sense to realize that it is recognition and praise that you're looking for, recognition or praise that you did not receive in times that you thought that you deserved recognition or praise for something that you either said or did while growing up as a child.
You want to be thought of and seen as a great religious figure, or as great goodwill ambassador to change and save the world from hell though your silly ancient 2000 year old beliefs.
You have been told that if you can convert someone to join or agree with your silly christian beliefs, that you will receive a reward in heaven by the utmost authority on high, that's the only reason you go out of your way trying to convince as many people that you can that you are in fact a christian. But you're only fooling yourself, that's why you love your church because so many like you have also fallen for the stupidity of fundamental christianity.
Or if you don't get the praise or recognition that you're looking for, then you're ready to condemn people to hell and if you don't find the recognition and praise you're looking for at your church, then you'll look for another church, this happens constantly by christians switching churches, switching pastors, members switching memberships, etc.
I can't imagine why anyone would want to be around another smelly rotten human male corpse named jesus after they die....Why is that, could it be that we were all lied to by our parents and religious authorities?
The convenient lie of christianity!
Can something that was believed to be true 2000 years ago still be believed and revered today as a pure fact? Unless of course you're a coward and are afraid of being sent to hell for what you happen to believe in your mind.
1. The world is more than 6000 years old, in fact it's billions of years old.
2. The planet earth is still growing and developing islands and new lands.
3. There is no proof or evidence that humans were ever created from dirt, or from earth.
4. Invisible beings have never been and cannot be proven to exist.
5. The NT gospels were not written until 20 to 100 years after Jesus' supposed death.
6. No one knows the original names of the NT authors.
7. Saul/Paul never personally met Jesus.
8. Saul/Paul was a murderer turned self-appointed saint.
9. Anyone having a baby out of wedlock 2000 years ago, was immediately stoned to death, unless your name was Mary and happened to be raped by a rabbi.
10. Joseph was bequeathed to Mary, but she had a baby out of wedlock.
11. Mary was supposedly raped by an invisible ghost.
12. Virgin birth is not probable nor possible and breaks the laws of nature.
13. The people who wrote the NT thought that the world was flat, they also thought diseases were caused by demons and witch spells and that the heart was the center of all thought and emotion.
14. There is no proof that Jesus ever existed.
15. The people that wrote the bible had no formal education they also thought that the earth was at the center of the universe and the Sun rose over the earth.
16. There is no proof that a serpent, a bush or donkey ever spoke words.
17. There is no proof that demons, angels, spirits, ghosts, holy ghosts, miracles, souls, blessings, a savior, god or gods exists anywhere.
18. There is no proof or evidence that anything exists beyond one's death.
19. The bible is nothing more than a book of superficial fantasy and fables, invented and made up to manipulate and change the way and direction that people would normally think.
20. The bible and all religious materials should be destroyed immediately.
Since every person that holds a belief in a god or a savior were indoctrinated into their beliefs by other believers, the man made gods and saviors loose all their power when the believer is asleep, they can only control the believers thoughts when they are concious, therefore the man made gods and saviors loose all their power to control the believers thoughts when they are either asleep, or unconsicous.
Since one half of the worlds population is either basically asleep at any given time, the man made gods loose their power and miss out on much of their undeserved praise.
Every person is an atheist, to qualify that statement, if you do not believe in at least one of the many gods that was invented or created in the minds imagination of men or women, then you are in fact an atheist to at least one of those invented gods.
Chances are you do not believe in the majority of the gods that were created in the minds imagination of the people whom invented them, this leaves you as a nonbeliever and an atheist to those gods.
The term atheist is wrongly used as a mis-characterization against people who do not believe in the christian god.
I've heard many a preacher condemn atheism in the past, to condemn a person for being an atheist is a bigoted statement against ones own self and it shows their ignorance.
When you joined the religious society you thought you were joining a club that showed all the nonbelievers and outsiders how righteous and pious you are, but what the religious authorities failed to tell you is:
The people who wrote the bible over 2000 years ago were ignorant superstitious imbeciles, who believed the world was flat and believed that diseases were caused by demons and witch spells and they believed that the heart was the center of all thought and emotion, they also believed that the earth was at the center of the universe.
They also believed that a god and jesus lived in the clouds above and knew the amount of every hair on every persons head.
We now know with the invention of the microscope that diseases are caused by germs, bacteria, microbes, man made chemicals and nuclear waste.
We now know through medical research that the heart is a pump and not the center of all thought and emotion.
We now know with the invention of the telescope that the earth is not at the center of the universe.
We now know with the invention of airplanes, rockets and space ships that a god nor a jesus lives in the clouds above.
We also know that rainbows are not a promise from a god not to flood the earth but are formed from the refraction of light rays through water molecules, called the prism effect.
We also know there is absolutely no evidence for a god or jesus or a devil, heaven, hell, angels, demons, good spirits, bad spirits, holy spirits, witches, talking donkey, talking snake, miracles, blessings, virgin births, ghosts, sin, saviors, or people raised from the dead.
To seal the deal in the minds of Christians that they have chosen the right faith as explained by the following supposed quotes from Jesus. It is foretold!
Matthew 24: 8-14
Then you will be handed over to be persecuted and put to death, and you will be hated by all nations because of me. 10 At that time many will turn away from the faith and will betray and hate each other, 11 and many false prophets will appear and deceive many people. 12 Because of the increase of wickedness, the love of most will grow cold, 13 but the one who stands firm to the end will be saved. 14 And this gospel of the kingdom will be preached in the whole world as a testimony to all nations, and then the end will come.
Mark 13: 8-13
Nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. There will be earthquakes in various places, and famines. These are the beginning of birth pains. 9 "You must be on your guard. You will be handed over to the local councils and flogged in the synagogues. On account of me you will stand before governors and kings as witnesses to them. 10 And the gospel must first be preached to all nations. 11 Whenever you are arrested and brought to trial, do not worry beforehand about what to say. Just say whatever is given you at the time, for it is not you speaking, but the Holy Spirit. 12 "Brother will betray brother to death, and a father his child. Children will rebel against their parents and have them put to death. 13 All men will hate you because of me, but he who stands firm to the end will be saved.
Luke 21: 12-19
But before all this, they will seize you and persecute you. They will hand you over to synagogues and put you in prison, and you will be brought before kings and governors, and all on account of my name. 13 And so you will bear testimony to me. 14 But make up your mind not to worry beforehand how you will defend yourselves. 15 For I will give you words and wisdom that none of your adversaries will be able to resist or contradict. 16 You will be betrayed even by parents, brothers and sisters, relatives and friends, and they will put some of you to death. 17 Everyone will hate you because of me. 18 But not a hair of your head will perish. 19 Stand firm, and you will win life.
Just what a Christian loves to hear, about how they are so right and everyone else is wrong!
If a Christian is cornered or criticized or questioned for their beliefs then this is proof in the Christians mind that they have wisely chosen, the right book of truth, the right religion, the right belief, the absolute right truth and will be rewarded until the end with a crown of righteousness and a mansion to reward their faithfulness.
Your reality in this world begins at the moment of your birth, it does not begin some 2000 years ago in the minds of insane gypsy goat herders.
Having to stare and grip reality directly in the face takes an enormous amount of growing up mentally by being able to accept that when you get weaned and distanced away from the warm soft teats you will eventually have to face reality, you will be forced to go to school and be away from your Jesus loving mommy and socialize with people you would not normally socialize with, you will be expected to make your mark among society with either a college degree or join the military, or a religious organization and looked upon as an up standing citizen of the community, otherwise you will be looked upon as an outcast of society.
You may eventually have to come to the realization that you are for certain going to die and face the event of death and that there is no Jesus and bible god to save your soul from hell and that you have been lied to by your tender loving mommy who meant to serve you well but she too had also been lied to by her good intending parents also.
Growing up means you'll have to distance yourself away from your mothers teats and realize there is no loving god and jesus, nor some false religion to save you from your own stupid ignorance.
Growing up means you'll have to face reality for what it is, and not some glorified dream with fabricated lies to make you look special in the eyes of someone's fabricated god and savior.
Growing up means you'll have to get a job instead of trying to fool people into believing that you have been called to preach the word of god and never have to work a single day in your life as many false preachers and false prophets have done.
Growing up means you'll face reality for what it is instead of hiding your fears in a false religion as many have chosen to do.
Growing up and facing reality isn't a lot of fun and it takes a lot of guts to stand up and not cower down to religious authorities and religious indoctrination.
Christianity is selling false hope at the expense of a lie by the deliberate fabrication of an invisible rose again savior and by declaring people desperately wicked and then offering them a solution from their wickedness by making them feel guilty and then scamming them out of their hard earned money.
Today is May 22, 2011
Jebus has come and claimed his Saints, if you are still here on earth you are destined for hell.
It's guaranteed, it's in the buybull !!!

The great biblical tribulation as predicted by some religious fool named Harold Camping, the rapture begins on:
May 21, 2011
GOD AND JEBUS ARE KILLING PEOPLE AT THIS POINT IN TIME TO PREPARE CHRISTIANS FOR THE GREAT TRIBULATION WITH TORNADOES AND TSUNAMIS, EARTHQUAKES, HURRICANES, FLOODS ,VOLCANOES, FAMINES, PESTILENCES AND DISEASES TO WARN EVERYONE THAT JEBUS IS COMING SOON AND HE LOVES YOU, SO NOW IS THE TIME TO TAKE HEED AND REPENT AND BE SAVED ALL YOU HEATHEN INFIDEL PAGAN SINNERS!!!!.
If you're on this list below you're destined and bound straight for HELL!!!
You worthless god's favorite people, all you Jews, You self-righteous Mormons, Damn Fool Catholics, Insane Muslims, Jackass Buddhas, Intelligent Atheists, Frigging Non-Baptists, Smart Communists, Stubborn Nonbelievers, Jebus Doubters, Sceptics, Adulterers, Non-conformists, Non-christians, Wiccans, You dope heads, Ye of little faith, You Spineless Nuns, You with your hardened heart, You scoffers, You idol worshippers, You incestuous inbreeds, You reprobates, You murderers, You liars, You false preachers, You thieves, You adulterers, You lesbians, You whores, You workers of iniquity, You prisoners, You god-damned God and Jebus haters, You drunkards and winos, You witches, You devil worshippers, You homeless bastards, You rapists, You false prophets, You rich business men/women, You child molesters, You queers, You homosexuals, You baby raping faggots, You Aborigines, You sinful Eskimos, You self-righteous cretins, You useless Pope.

Just remember, Jebus loves everybody and God, he loves the smell of burning flesh!!!
To claim to be a Christian does not prove one to be an honest person, if it did you would never hear of any Christians committing any crimes, like thievery, embezzlement, adultery, lying, cheating, stealing, even murder, but as long as they believe they can blame a man invented invisible being (satan) for all their crimes and not blame themselves and then get instant forgiveness from another man made invisible being (jebus) from being influenced by the man made invisible being satan.
Someone who claims to be a christian is an emotionally psychotic fool.
The date was March 31, 1621, the day the Mayflower landed with it's load of religiousized self-righteous Christian fanatics, who came over here looking for the opportunity to save lost souls and to convert all infidels to Christianity.
From Wikipedia: The Mayflower was the ship that transported the English Separatists, better known as the Pilgrims, from a site near the Mayflower Steps in Plymouth, England, to Plymouth, Massachusetts, (which would become the capital of Plymouth Colony), in 1620.
 There were 102 passengers and a crew of 25–30. The vessel left England on September 6, 1620 (Old Style)/September 16 (New Style), and after a grueling 66-day journey marked by disease, which claimed two lives, the ship dropped anchor inside the hook tip of Cape Cod (Provincetown Harbor) on November 11/November 21.
The Mayflower was originally destined for the mouth of the Hudson River, near present-day New York City, at the northern edge of England's Virginia colony, which itself was established with the 1607 Jamestown Settlement. However, the Mayflower went off course as the winter approached, and remained in Cape Cod Bay.
On March 21/31, 1621, all surviving passengers, who had inhabited the ship during the winter, moved ashore at Plymouth, and on April 5/15, the Mayflower, a privately commissioned vessel, returned to England.
In 1623, a year after the death of captain Christopher Jones, the Mayflower was most likely dismantled for scrap lumber in Rotherhithe, London.  The Mayflower has a famous place in American history as a symbol of early European colonization of the future United States. With their religion oppressed by the English Church and government, English Dissenters called Pilgrims who comprised about half of the passengers on the ship desired a life where they could practice their religion freely.
This symbol of religious freedom resonates in U.S. society and the story of the Mayflower is a staple of any American history textbook. Americans whose roots are traceable back to New England often believe themselves to be descended from Mayflower passengers.
1. Because they have been told a god exists by people whom they have trusted to tell them the truth.
2. Because they are afraid not to believe in a god.
3. Because of a book that was written in the pre-scientific age over 2000 years ago and claims there is a god.
4. Because society has wrongfully established the Bible as a book of absolute truth.
5. Because churches were already built and established as vessels of absolute undeniable truth before the majority of people were born in America.
6. Because the majority of people are too coward to stand up against unproven lies and myths.
7. Because Christianity offers the believer a false glorified title of superiority (christian, pastor, priest, etc.) above others that do not believe as they believe.
8. Because the Bible promises a reward for belief in a god.
9. Because the Bible threatens people with eternal punishment for non-belief.
10. Because the majority of people are cowards and have been taught not to question the Bible, the Koran and other so-called holy books.
11. Because people foolishly tend to believe that people who lived before them had more privilege to knowledge and wisdom than people living today.
12. Blind assumption - Death is mentioned in the Bible and we all die, so it must be true.
The Problem of Miracles
By John W. Loftus at 2/14/2011
I can think of at least seven problems with believing in the biblical claims of miracles.1) We live in a scientific era whereas the claims of biblical miracles come from a prescientific era. New Testament scholar Rudolph Bultmann just calls them “myths” and says:
“The cosmology of the N.T. is essentially mythical in character.
The world is viewed as a three-storied structure, with the earth in the center, the heaven above, and the underworld beneath. Heaven is the abode of God and of celestial beings—angels. The underworld is hell, the place of torment. Man is not in control of his life. Evil spirits may take possession of him. Satan may inspire him with evil thoughts.
It is simply the cosmology of a pre-scientific age. To modern man . . . the mythical view of the world is obsolete. It is no longer possible for anyone seriously to hold the N.T. view of the world. We no longer believe in the three-storied universe.
No one who is old enough to think for himself supposes that God lives in a local heaven. There is no longer any heaven in the traditional sense. The same applies to hell in the sense of a mythical underworld beneath our feet. And if this is so . . . we can no longer look for the return of the Son of Man on the clouds of heaven.
It is impossible to use the electric light and the wireless and to avail ourselves of modern medical and surgical discoveries, and at the same time to believe in the N.T. world of spirits and miracles. The same objections apply to the doctrine of the atonement. How can the guilt of one man be expiated by the death of another who is sinless?” [R. Bultmann, in Kerygma & Myth: A Theological Debate, ed. Hans Werner Bartsch (New York: Harper & Row, 1961), pp. 1–7.]
My claim is that in our world miracles like a virgin birth, resurrection, and an ascension into the sky do not happen. What world are YOU living in? If miracles do not happen in our day then they never happened in first century Palestine either. And that's the end of it.
Jason Pratt made fun of me by saying this is a "category error":
Remember folks, if televisions and electric light switches didn't happen in first century Palestine, they couldn't happen in our day either. And that's the end of it.
But it's a category mistake to equate ordinary events with extraordinary ones. It's a category mistake to equate ontology (i.e., what actually happened) with epistemology (i.e., what we have reason to believe). And it's a category mistake to equate the results of science with the results of god-explanations which, to date so far, have always been wrong so the theist must continually move the goals posts as science solves the gaps of the past and uncovers new ones. 2) To believe that a miraculous event took place demands a near impossible double burden of proof.
What believers must show is that an event is not possible without a supernatural explanation (or at the very least very very very improbable). However, once they do that they must turn right around and claim such an impossible event probably took place anyway. On the one hand they must show said event is improbable, and on the other hand argue said event probably happened!!! Whatever they place in one hand they take away with the other hand. 3) Time itself is a problem. We are separated by 2000-3000 years from the biblical claims of miracles.
We cannot go back in time and interview eyewitnesses. To see this read about Lessing's Broad Ugly Ditch. I admit miracles might have happened in the past. But my claim is that even if they did there is no reason to think they did from a historian's perspective, which is the only one we have to know what happened in the past. In that sense if the historian does not see miracles in today's world then he cannot interpret the raw uninterrupted data of the past any other way but from his present perspective. 4) If believers provide a natural explanation for an event it is no longer miraculous, whereas if they don’t do this it’s very difficult to accept such an extraordinary claim. Once someone describes how it's naturally possible for there to be a virgin birth (if that could be done) at that point there is no longer a miracle. And if they cannot explain how it might have taken place it's simply unbelievable.5) Even if we agree with the Jews of Jesus' day that Yahweh exists and he does miracles this still does very little if anything to lead us in today's world to think Yahweh raised Jesus from the dead. Because a completely overwhelming number of Jews in Jesus' day did not think Yahweh did this particular miracle in this particular case. If they were there, and if they knew their Scriptures, and if they believed in Yahweh, and if they believed in miracles, but they didn't believe God raised Jesus from the dead THEN WHY SHOULD I believe? WHY SHOULD WE? 6) There is the intractable problem of how a God that is an immaterial spirit can actually interact with matter, unless they share something that allows him to act in the material world. If not, he can't act in our world. If so, then God must be at least partially a material being.7) Biblical miraculous claims can almost never be proof of the existence of God, for in order to accept such claim by a writer in the pre-scientific past, and having the double burden of proof mentioned above, a person must already believe in a miracle working God who works these kinds of miracles.
But where do we get those particular god beliefs--or Bayesian "priors"--from in the first place? We get those "priors" from our respective cultures. But that's not how we should justify why we believe. For each different culture provides its own different god "priors." We must defend our "priors" apart from how we we raised in our respective cultures. This is the adult way to examine our religion once we grow up and want to see whether we were taught correctly by our parents and significant others. My claim is that this cannot be done. And taking the Outsider Test for Faith is the best and only way to see this.

John 3:16: The expanded version
"For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life."
John 3:16. It's one of the most widely-quoted Bible verses.
It's been called "the Gospel in a nutshell", for its succinct summary of the New Testament's "message".
A verse as vital and revered as John 3:16 deserves proper examination in the light of the rest of Holy Scripture. Let's place it into the wider context of the entire Bible:
"For God so loved the world, that he...
Decreed sickness, painful childbirth, and death for all descendants of Adam and Eve;
Drowned every man, woman, and innocent child on Earth, save a handful;
Had countless animals blood let and killed for atonement of sins, loves the smell of burning flesh;
Slaughtered every man, woman, and innocent child in Sodom and Gomorrah;
Murdered countless babies in Egypt to impress a Pharaoh;
Explicitly allowed and even commanded slavery, the beating and murder of slaves, and the rape of slaves;
Ordered the execution of homosexuals, disobedient children, stubborn sons, blasphemers, non-believers, "witches", adulterers, complainers, anyone ignoring a priest or judge, anyone working on the Sabbath, anyone touching Mt Sinai, any woman whose father cannot produce bloody sheets as proof of marriage-night virginity, and any betrothed virgin who is raped but doesn't protest loudly enough;
Repeatedly commanded his people to capture and rape women after battles;
Established a law requiring that rape victims marry their rapists;
Killed 24,000 Israelites by plague, stopping only when Phineas's pleased God by murdering an interracial couple;
Commanded the Israelites to slay all Midianites, including women and innocent children – except for 32,000 virgins, who were to be saved for raping;
Commanded the Levites to attack each other, resulting in the deaths of 3000;
Allowed Lot to give up his daughters to a mob of rapists;
Caleb to give away his daughter as a battle prize; and a concubine owner to give his concubine to a mob of rapists (after which she dies and is dismembered);
Allowed His various champions to rip the flesh off captives; kill 69 brothers "upon one stone"; bring down a building on 3000 men and women; massacre inhabitants of cities with saws and axes; and throw 10,000 captives off a cliff;
Commanded Joshua to kill all peoples of all lands he visited, including women and innocent children, as well as kill all livestock and burn all cities;
Ordered that all Samaritans be killed by the sword, with infants dashed to pieces and pregnant women ripped apart;
Commanded and aided massacres of men, women, children, and infants among the Caananites, Bethelites, Moabites, Philistines, Hittites, Perizzites, Hivites, Amelekites, Midianites, Succothites, Sihonites, Benjamites, Ammorites, Syrians, Assyrians, Edomites, Heshbonites, the city of Nob, the city of Ninevah, the town of Laish, the house of Jeroboam, the house of Baal, the house of Baasha, foreigners in Samaria, Hagarites, Hazorites, Jebusites, Ethiopians, Babylonians, and Israelites;
Directly murdered people Himself for reasons including masturbation; refusal to strike a prophet; believing a lying prophet; looking into the ark; attempting to save the ark from a fall; and "offering strange fire";
Murdered the wives, sons, and small children of men who argued with Moses, along with 250 bystanders;
Sent bears to slaughter 42 children who laughed at a priest's bald head;
Killed Job's children, slaves, and animals as part of a game;
Repeatedly punished children for sins of parents or even earlier generations;
Vowed to use lies and stumbling blocks to lure people into unrighteousness, then damn them eternally for it;
Inflicted various peoples with curses including pestilence, leprosy, fever, mildew, hemorrhoids, locusts, itching, blindness, dead livestock, slavery, madness, worms, burning, thirst, baldness, miscarriages, famine, hail, and fruitless olive trees;
Delivered a plague that caused women to boil and eat their children;
Welcomed human sacrifice, including Jephthah's burning of his innocent daughter; the Moab king's burning of his son; Josiah's offerings of burnt priests; and Abraham's willingness to slit a child's throat."
Yet let's not neglect the key message concerning Jesus in John 3:16. God showed us His Love in one more way:
"For God so loved the world, that he...
... gave his only begotten Son – to preach death, damnation, and eternal torment for disbelievers; to criticize Jews for not executing disobedient children; to defend Old Testament atrocities like slavery, massacres, and bloody thirsty laws; and to doom thousands of valuable pigs in a botched exorcism."
Why anyone in their right-mind would pretend to worship such a being is beyond me!

We were all primararly raised by our mothers, whom where nothing more than cowards, she cowarded down to our fathers and she also coward down to the Jesus icon, whom was also nothing more than a coward himself.
Rather than bravely face down your enemies, you love them to death, turn the other cheek, do unto others, nothing more than cowardice bullshit.
Our mothers basically taught us all how to be cowards, backed by the teachings of the buybull.
"Whoever shall believe in him, shall not perish but have everlasting life."
John 3:16 is the persuasive verse for calling in a free rein of so many mindless Christian converts! John 3:16 was a statement from John, not from Jesus, John's statement is not theology that Jesus supposedly taught.
It says, just believe in Jesus, no requirements just believe, never mind the lies, absurdities and the atrocities and the rest of the mindless nonsense and murdering filth written in the Bible.
John 3:16 Suggests to people to just believe, without question, nor to examine the veracity of the Bible. To just believe, leaves the door open for all kinds of religious charlatans, many different denominations, frauds, crooks, snake oil salesmen, false preachers, false prophets, false popes, bishops, false priests, etc. to just believe, means you can do no wrong as long as you just believe!!
Never mind that the Bible god drowned millions of innocent people and animals to cleanse the earth of all wickedness and evil and it failed.
Never mind that Lots wife was turned into a pillar of salt just because she turned around and looked back, while it was perfectly alright that Lot's two girls got him drunk to have sex with him.
Never mind that god came back looking for Moses to kill him and his wife cut off his son's foreskin and threw it towards god and he changed his mind about killing Moses.
Never mind that god spent all that time trying to change Pharaoh's heart when he would not even try to prevent Hitler from killing over six million of his favorite people.
Never mind that he had to have his own son murdered for him to save people from their sins.
Never mind that god calls men to preach his words to beg for money, but yet the Bible god will not save a single little girl or boy or children from getting molested or shot in the head or from starving to death or horrendous diseases.
The Christians say, I just believe, that's all they need to do is just believe, they never have to question their pastor, the Bible, nor never have to read another word of the Bible, with no qualifications needed, they don't even need the education to nor eye sight to read, the only requirement is to just believe to be a Christian.
The Christian says, all I know it's the word of god, because grandpa said it was, or grandma said it was, or uncle Joe said it was true or aunt so and so said it was true,
I blindly believe, because my neighbor believes!
I believe because Billy Graham believes!
I believe because George Bush believes!
I believe because Jim Bakker believes!
I believe because Benny Hinn believes!
If it's good enough for them, it's good enough for me!
A christian can lie, cheat, steal, molest children, or murder and many of them have done just that, and Jesus will forgive them, but if you don't "believe in him" you will go to hell!
The Bible doesn't have to make sense to them, it doesn't matter to them what nonsense is in the Bible nor how or when it was written, all they have to do is sit back and believe.
The majority of people converted to Christianity from peer pressure and the threat of hell. No one had enough courage to stand up and say, Wait a minute! I want to be absolutely sure and investigate that the Bible is true before I join this church! And I want to know exactly how and when it was written, and by whom? Most people joined just in case it all happens to be true and out of mindless fear!
To this day, there's absolutely no evidence for the Bible being true.
I an Atheist, from this day forward, pledge to live and think in terms of reality, reason, and common sense for the betterment of my country and my fellow man, and I will never let my mind be encumbered with silly beliefs of ancient superstitious ignorance and lies written down in a book consisting of ghosts, saints, angels, spirits, demons, souls and invisible beings that is passed down and falsely accepted through society as absolute truth.
I an Atheist, intend to take care of this planet and respect it''s animals, wildlife and not to harm another human being through wars caused by religion, jealousy, politics, race or color of another human being.
I an Atheist, also pledge not to deplete the earth's natural resources with an irrational philosophy that a flying dead zombie messiah is on his way back from heaven to destroy the planet and it's inhabitants.
Christians constantly remind their phony god about how wonderful he is in spite of the fact he/she lets children starve to death daily and gives people (mostly christians) cancer and horrible diseases.
Why would anyone in their 'right mind' pretend to worship and give praise to a god that would allow over 6 million of his (favorite people) to be murdered, when the same god supposedly hardened Pharaoh's heart a bazillion times just to prove a silly and petty point?
The same god sat there and fooled around with the Pharaoh for how many years, and yet the same god never lifted a finger to help his favorite people, the Jews.
A god that would allow infants, children, pregnant women, the elderly, handicapped, sick and innocent people who where tortured and maimed and murdered, shot with machine guns and ripped apart and pushed off into open graves, with a bulldozer while many were still alive?
What kind of person will pretend to worship that kind of god and condone his very actions of not stepping in and putting an end to all that murder and suffering?
What kind of god would allow this to happen to anyone?????
ANSWER - Certainly not a loving bible god!
This very same god that is said to take a personal interest in people, yeah as long it's a Pharaoh or a King, or a so-called prophet, yeah no problem.
All this personal god would have had done is caused Hitler to have a stroke or a heart attack, or a stray bullet and no one would have know a god had intervened, but there is no god that takes a personal interest in anyone, because there is no god, period.
This all loving bible god, all he had to have done is take out "one mentally psychotic man" and he chose not to, that is no god, it's a Satanic evil monster.
Just like he chose to send a baby found in the bushes to intervene with Pharaoh after 400 years, of shameless murdering and needless suffering with the 40 billion needless plagues.
The same god came around looking for Moses to kill him but his wife cut his sons foreskin and threw it towards him so he changed his mind.
I suggest christians investigate what kind of god they are pretending to worship.
Beliefs inciting the existence of imaginary beings imposed upon children and adults that are taught as true and agreed upon by any society is a form of child abuse and the foundation for a mentally ill society.
Religious beliefs are the core of a mentally ill and a coward society!
The use of words such as prayer, blessings, disciples, apostle, miracles, souls, sin, gods, saviors, demons, devils, witches, heaven, hell, ghosts, good spirits, bad spirits, saved, unsaved, church, are all indicators of mentally ill indoctrination.
The use of metaphorical phrases such as, Walk with god, Invite Jesus into your heart, I'll pray for you, You've received a miracle, You have turned your back on god, I have a relationship with Jesus, I've received a blessing, You're going to hell, he/ she's with Jesus now, Put it at the feet of Jesus, are all indicators of indoctrinated mental illness.
The self-elected title of Christian, Muslim, Mormon, Jew, apostle, disciple, minister, reverend, preacher, pastor, bishop, pope, are all titles imposed by false indoctrinated religious beliefs.
The constant use of nonsense religious words and phrases are the indicator of a mentally ill society which is the state America is in today. The violence and the state of rampant insanity is at the core of religious beliefs imposed upon America by it's insane religious fanatic so-called founders, Christian cowards.
Since Atheists have no glutinous charismatic leaders to lie for us and claim victory for something that does not exist, Atheists blogs are as about as useless as a set of tits on a doorknob.
The stance of Atheism or the default position of no god's existing after being born into this world, Atheism is a natural position of a person's ability to reason within one's own mind, this is before the external influences are brought on by outside sources of previous existing parental Biblical induced indoctrination.
The contents of the Bible in America is falsely advertised as an absolute universal truth claim, just as a persons current native language is accepted as their universal language truth claim.
Since the English language is the current standard for communication used by the white man in America as opposed to the unacceptable pre-existing Indian dialect, the English language is perceived as an absolute truth claim on this continent. Therefore the Bible which was translated into the English language and brought over here by the white man, the Bible is also considered an absolute truth claim, in the minds of the people who desire to believe that the Bible is the absolute word from a god, for the following reasons given below.
After having delved one's self into reading the Bible and by falsely thinking they have found absolute universal truth while seeking for answers for their own existence, the Bible believer is led to believe that they have been awarded the permission to elevate one's self to to the throne of self-righteousness, thinking they have accidentally found the best news a person could possibly stumble onto. Therefore the Bible persuades and convinces in the readers mind that they have found the absolute righteous universal truth that has secretly been revealed to them through the Holy Spirit by reading a book that claims to have been inspired with holy words written by ancient prophetic wise and clever sheep and goat herders that lived over 2000 years ago and was written with a message of divine revelation directed specifically towards the reader from the creator of the universe with their best interest in mind for the eternal destiny of their soul after they are deceased.
After accepting the Bible as absolute truth, the reader now perceives it as their chosen duty and righteous commission to take on the world and to save the lost sinners from the flames of hell with their steadfast ability to walk with god in unison and in his perfect righteousness, as if to say "This is my son with whom I'm well pleased!". Hence now the Bible believer is now ready to roll up their sleeves and do god's holy divine will and follow in his footsteps and without even considering to travel to other lands to save the lost multitudes, they conveniently stay here in America and eagerly proclaim their newly found ignorance among one another as if no one person living in America today has ever heard of the Bible, nor of the name Jesus, except for a lucky chosen few Christians, after having mined the Bible for it's shinny worthless iron pyrite tripe.
Just imagine what a supreme feeling it must surely be for the Christian to self-elect one's self to the position of disciple and apostle of the most powerful being to have ever been invented and endorsed by a bunch of uneducated sheep and goat herders around 2000 years ago, imagine what a pseudo feeling of self-aggrandizement it must surely be, while the rest of us nonbelievers are just lowly infidel atheists without a belief in imaginary beings to promote us up to a false level of saintly status.
