We get it. You have awoken from indoctrination and seen the light, and spend your free time trawling the net for sarcastic articles that address subjects your fellow atheists have obsessed over on this forum for many years.

Ha Ha Ha, God likes penises, can I get a big atheist group hug.

You're spending more time looking at the bible now than you ever did when you were a 'believer'.

The requirement of circumcision always did perplex me.  I wonder how it ever got started.
It doesn't make sense to let go of something you've had for so long.  But it also doesn't make sense to hold on when there's actually nothing there.

Don't blame me that weird things are in your Bible. Why would god create men with a foreskin he wants them to cut off anyway?

Indeed, if only more "Christians" would do the same.

Must have something to do with cleanliness like not eating pork.  Disease stuff was banned in old times when it was seen to kill you.

But the God thing does seem to be obsessed with them.  Maybe He is not so much now that porn is available.

One of the weirdest was when Saul wanted David to bring him 100 Philistine foreskins in exchange for his daughters hand in marriage. The Bible says David delivered 200 foreskins to Saul, with the implicit statement that God helped David obtain the foreskins.

What in the hell was Saul going to do with 200 foreskins and why would god help someone obtain foreskins??? Maybe Saul offered them as a burnt offering or something.

which does explain a lot, including the silly stories that MM wants to insist are real.   

the whole foreskin thing is odd.  I can see perhaps, after the Jews started the bizarre custom, a foreskin would be one sure way of collecting bounty on killing non-Jews.   However, the beginning of the idea is beyond me.   The only people who would see it would be sexual partners, and maybe if one shares a bath. 

However, the bible is weird about not seeing your naughty bits, with this nonsense from Exodus 20:26 You shall not go up by steps to my altar, so that your nakedness may not be exposed on it.”

that I ever believed in this nonsense amazes me.

You're spending more time looking at the bible now than you ever did when you were a 'believer'.

Honestly I think that's the thing—when a lot of people actually decide to read the Bible rather than just accept what they were told about it, that causes them to realize that there are some problems with it, they investigate more about it and the history, and come to realize it's not consistent and was developed over time by a bunch of different people, etc., leading them to lose their faith.

At least that was my experience.

It's been shown in studies and surveys that most Christians not only refuse to read the Bible, they also ignore most of it even when it is presented to them. They misrepresent or simply do not know what the Bible actually has in it.

Christians, open the Bible to page one and read until you are finished with Revelation. Then come back and talk to me about how great it is.

Its a fair point. Bunch of people with no belief in God, I should know that God, God and God would be the three biggest topics of interest.

I've read the Bible.  Never felt the need to obsess over circumcision though.
Ye are my witnesses, saith Jehovah, and my servant whom I have chosen; that ye may know and believe me, and understand that I am he: before me there was no God formed, neither shall there be after me.

well, that second answer explains a LOT of things.

always bemusing when christians never seem to comprehend why atheists discuss religion. 

as for jst not being obsessed with foreskins, that's a thing.  It's also a thing when your god *is* obsessed.

Yet, the Bible itself does obsess over foreskins through circumcision. Isn't that incredible? Bible obsesses, you don't. Hmmm...

Okay, so like I cannot go get checkups at the Cancer Care facility without God talk. It's almost like visiting a funeral home.

Last week I went for my diagnostic mammogram. The technician talked about how her nephew was miraculously healed by God. I did not challenge her conclusion verbally, but in my mind I'm thinking; "what of the other children?".

My point here is, if I want to come to an atheist website to talk about theism (something I cannot do elsewhere for fear of personal safety) what is it to you?

 :o.....huh? I'm not a participant at IGI, I don't think I've ever posted there. And as I've said many, many, many times before, I don't go to theist forums. I've certainly never been banned from one. In fact, I don't think I've ever been banned from a forum in my life.

You sound paranoid MM - what the hell are you talking about?

. It seems that MM. Has nothing.  Name calling, fasle claims, and whining about people discussing his religion because that will show how ridiculous it is.

He does seem to enjoy hanging with atheists and he is aware of the other atheist sites. 
So we must be filling some void he has.

(maybe we can all go in and get him a few foreskins as a peace offering.)

Makes zero sense, no-link Nick. Its an atheist site which talks about my major interest! No voids being filled.
