And after all, as an atheist, I do not KNOW that there is no god. But I can see the flaws in the "holy" scriptures and deduce they are not divine. However that does not mean there isn't a god there that either is malevolent or doesn't care/doesn't know about life on Earth.

Civil debate can always accomplish something. "You hurt my feewwins" name calling accomplishes nothing.
