I do not believe that God exists. He is just too evil.
Their arrogant assumption that they are correct. Evidence for their convictions is so poor that one can even justify the assumption that Satan killed God and we've been praising Him ever since. It would explain a lot - e.g. the deaths of native S. Americans, the constant wars / crusades, the three ambiguous books, etc. But seriously - they're blind to the absurdity of their beliefs.
I didn't. I suggested we start it!
Yes - but I feel that direct confrontation is not the answer. They've had direct confrontation for millenia. Education is the answer.
I'm not a quick enough thinker, nor am I practised, to enter into serious debate. I like to write sarcastic/flippant material that extends religious 'logic' in the hope that it may cause a religious person to stop and think about what it is they're actually doing.
I just want to live, laugh and to tell a story or two. But as my late mum said to me, 'Mark' she said (!), 'you might be bright but you have no common sense.' And as a man who bought into 8-track cassettes and beta-max videos - I have to agree.
Wonderful people, nice atmosphere
