Actually Christianity is the only religion, therefore the only one I have studied.

And I think Christians have failed in general when we have this many athiest running around claiming there is no God.

# Atheists are somehow simply unaware of The Bible and Christianity, and will happily convert on the spot when informed of the rudiments of Christian dogma. Expect them in an Author Tract.

Then you know a lot of wrong stuff, s many people became atheists just because they lookes closer at the word of god and really read the bible instead of only a few passages, selected by your preachers. ;)

Actually Christianity is the only religion, therefore the only one I have studied.

How do you know if you haven´t studied other religions as well. Maybe you are christian and no buddhist because you just don´t know the buddhist scriptures ;)

I'm not a Christian because I read the bible. #1 reason there.

I'm guessing you are a Christian because of your lack of understanding about the origins of Christianity. Shame.

The 'Word' is the best way to recruit atheists.

The Book of Genesis, for example, is clearly nonsense from start to finish. Most of Leviticus is completely irrelevant to anyone other than bronze age nomadic goatherds. The Book of Joshua, hate-fueled vengeance fantasy from end to end. I defy anyone to find any 'good' in the Book of Job. Endless books of imagined histories no more true than the genealogies appendixed to 'The Lord of the Rings'. Third-hand stories of miracles, written generations after they supposedly happened. Five conflicting accounts of the resurrection.The fundie favorite Revelation: pure psychotic fantasy.

Get my drift?

51 years a dedicated christian and now in my 23rd year of being an atheist.
I've lived under Adolf Hitler, Josef Stalin and several US Presidents.
The worst enemy of christianity is the christians.
As for god - there are over 2500 of them - all "one true", "all-powerful", "all-seeing" - and ALL man-made.

@solomongrundy - true, true a 1000 times true.

I thought the argument was that God's word always found a way to reach everyone regardless of time or place, so you can justify sending people who have never even heard of Jesus to hell?

Oh, me! Right here! Spent the first half of my short life at a pentecostal, rapture believing church. Didn't believe it then, don't believe it now.

I'm pretty tired of this. There seems to be so many of the "convert the heathens"-kind of Christians who truly believe that people in the modern world actually haven't heard about Jesus.

We have. People knock on our door with silly little books and tracts. They pester us on the streets. They have tv-shows and radio shows. So even the atheists who haven't read the bible or any other holy book have certainly heard the message. And no, for rational people that doesn't make you instantly convert.

i would tell you that I spent the majority of my life as christian, but then you would claim it was the wrong denomination...

Yup. I still go to church every Sunday (christian family, don't have the heart to break the news to them). Still very, very atheist.

Are there any athiest that have gone to church and know the Word and yet deny it still?

Right here. I spent my entire scholastic career in Christian schools of one stripe or another. I was taught the precepts of your religion by professional theologians, pastors, and other Bible experts. In fact, it's largely because I do know the Bible so well that I became an atheist. I was sickened to my soul by the constant threats, bloodshed, and villainy demonstrated by Jehovah and all His favorite guys like Moses, David, etc. And it's spelled "atheist", numbnuts.

And I think Christians have failed in general when we have this many athiest running around claiming there is no God.

What a shame you can't torture or burn us like in the good old days, eh?

Actually atheism is the only religion therefore the one you have studied is a fraudulent lie.

So I don't know enough about your BS to convert to it. Au contraire, I know more about your religion then you do, and that's why I don't subscribe.

Then why do I always have to correct Christians on their understanding of their own holy book?

Running around claiming that there is no God? Taken literally, that's kinda funny. Like a bunch of people in jogging suits quoting Nietzsche.

"Are there any athiest that have gone to church and know the Word and yet deny it still?"

I've been to Sunday School, and did RE at school, been to church for weddings & funerals. I've read the Bible, and the answer is YES.

Because I've determined that the 'Word' is a load of bollocks. Now how hard is it for you to deny that the Word is a load of bollocks too?

"Actually Christianity is the only religion, therefore the only one I have studied."

And yet I studied (in RE) Christianity. And Islam. And Judaism. And Hinduism. And Sikhism. And Zoroastrianism. And Jainism. And so on (including after I left school). Even $cientology. You must have either missed a LOT of classes or been 'hoemskuled', Elaine. Either way, this proves your ignorance.

"And I think Christians have failed in general when we have this many athiest running around claiming there is no God"

Hallelujah! She's seen the light of Logic! If only more fundies would realise this, then maybe they'd be on the right path of Reason. One more step would be changing 'claiming' with 'knowing', then that's half the battle won.

Wrong. I went to church regularly as a child and then again for several years as a young adult. I even got confirmed when I was in my 30s. It was during a church service that, while reciting the Nicene Creed, I realized I didn't believe a word of it. I never went back.

And yes, I have read the bible.
