[No, the point of atheism is to removed the false concept of gods from our vocabulary so we can progress, instead of voluntarily maintaining our stone age mindsets.
I guess it was the "stone-age mindset" that cause Christians in Rome in the first and second centuries to go find babies abandoned in the streets and adopt them?
And it was this same "stone-age mindset" that caused the Church to start universities in Europe during the Middle Ages? Even the Muslims started universities in Spain then.
And it was the same "stone-age mindset' that started many orphanages and hospitals in the past 2,000 years?
And it was the same "stone-age mindset" that started Harvard and Princeton Universities?
You can assign all sorts of horror to atheism, because you don't like it, while you assign all sorts of magisterial wonder to your god because the last thing you want to do to the dude is piss him off.[/quote]
See, that's where you go showing your ignorance again about Christianity. I can't piss God off. Why, because "I have been crucified with Christ. It is no longer I who live, but Christ who lives in me. And the life I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me." Galatians 2:20 ESV.
"There is therefore now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus." Romans 8:1, ESV
Now you on the other hand, well, not so good news: "God judgeth the righteous, and God is angry with the wicked every day" Psalm 7:11 KJV
If he's real, I've pissed him off for over half a century, and I don't seem any the worse for wear. If he wants me dead, he knows how to do it. Unless he isn't real, in which case i'll go ahead and finish this sentence and stuff.
You have unwittingly just proclaimed the greatness of God's mercy by stating what you did. Your still being here is evidence that God is extending mercy to you and giving you more time to repent of your sin and confess Him as Lord.
