So what? And the Nazis are forever linked with the bible because de Gobineau used it to justify his idea of divine Aryan supremacy, which Hitler then used.
I do. We do. You might think someone having an abortion is evil. I don't. I might think scaring kids with concepts like hell is evil, you don't.

Morality is not relative to the observer as you would like to pretend. There is absolute truth. We don’t always have it. But not because of my opinion. Because of God. God left us a book full of it. You just reject it.
For example, many people saw Blondin walk across the gorge below Niagara Falls on a tightrope, and believed (on the basis of the evidence of their own eyes) that he was capable of carrying a man on his back safely across. But only his manager Harry Colcord had enough faith to allow himself to be carried.
Believing a certain variable will act or has the potential to act a specific way despite the potential influence and probability of known or unknown change.
To have faith that one's spouse promise or commitment.
To have faith that the world will someday be peaceful.
To have faith that a person will pay you back.
To have faith that you will be alright despite adversity.
To have faith in one's full dependence on the will of supernatural forces or deities.
To have faith you will see someone again.
A means to obtain something.
To have faith in a process. (Faith in the Law)
To have faith in a source or resource. (Faith your pay check or employment)
To have faith in a method to obtain. (work hard, lie, cheat, buy, trade, be attractive, etc.)
"Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen." In other words, faith is the "evidence" of what Christians "know" to be true within their own hearts that has revealed to them by God

What of the Great Flood? Was that not a form of eugenics? Did Jesus say the Old Testament was wrong?
The majority of people in the world do not subscribe to this book you speak of, yet the majority of the world have similar morals. Morals are not the sole property of Bible-believing folk. Period.
So now that you understand that my statement about killing the other guy on the island was sarcastic, how do you justify your claim that atheists have no morals? (And even if I had said it literally, I don't represent the whole of atheism, now do I?)
...honestly, i keep seeing the same stuff rehashed over and over. stuff that i've refuted through argument on here being repeated by the same people
...where's the denial of ignorance here?

The Bible reference is not a good one. God brought the flood to wipe out the fallen angels who had created a race of their own through reproduction with earthly wives. Read it, its' there.

What's wrong with this picture?
LOVE IS MISSING IN ACTION. It's been sent off to war and is held captive in a prison called survival of the fittest man.

They were separate sentences. I never meant to imply that the definition of Atheism makes claims of belief in God being delusional. What I did do was say- the definition of Atheism is A. Richard Dawkins is an A who goes way beyond A. So he is a radical A. …hole
The more common understanding of atheism among atheists is “not believing in any gods.” No claims or denials are made — an atheist is a person who is not a theist.
Notice how the author walks on eggshells to not take a position on anything else in particular....Dawkins has taken this quite a ways further in advocating the abolition of faith in God. He calls parents teaching their children about God “child abuse”.... If true atheists make no claims or denials, then Dawkins is an atheist extremist, or perhaps a radical atheist.
“Science has clearly shown religious superstitions to be false.”
But he doesn’t define what “religious superstitions” are. At least I offered a definition!
Pragmatic? more like tricky Dicky… “I want to show how faith acts like a virus that infects the young…”
Well Dawkins does not acknowledge it. And who gets to be the mind police for our children Athiesstic scientists? The same ones that say it’s OK to slaughter the unborn ones? Sorry we say NO!
The Bible teaches that we are all made in the image of God. Even Atheists So for that reason alone there is value in human life as image bearers of God.
Yeah and faith is a virus. And Bible study is child abuse. Belief in God is delusional.
But if you’re wife goes out of town and you trust that she is not cheating on you. That is belief in things unseen Mel… That is faith. So is faith still BS as you put it. Or is it necessary for a healthy relationship with anyone?
You’re using the airbrush again. The strategy I see is to make it so foggy no one can see the connections. You won’t face the absolute truth of the unholy trinity of Atheism, Darwinism, and Marxism.
No it just looks like he wasn’t very clear himself. It really doesn’t matter, he’s dead now.
There’s still time for you though. His influence is what really matters. Stalin believed in God until he read Darwin. Reading Darwin influenced him to become an Atheist.
That doesn’t prove it’s false. Just that you want an excuse not to address it.
But Marx and Darwin influenced their thinking in ways that made killing acceptable. Natural selection, survival of the fittest, Dialectics, eugenics . All share this idea of conflict.
Why do you have those values? Where did your internal moral compass...
