well that's asimple one, and this thread is not new, so I'll give the standard issue reply.
Most athiests don't have a problem with Christianity actually, but they do have a big problem with a lot of their followers, which when it comes to
religion, being open or many times, inclusive turn into complete jackholes. Worse, when confronted by any of this behavior, in the athiests eyes, the
christian's reason is 'An invisibile man who lives in the sky told me" after that, they simply want to quote ther little book and filibuster
their way out of anything or try to play the circular logic game of the same.
so, to point out your speaking points..
1 - killing in the name of christ has been a time honored tradition starting from way in the past. Along with that has been the constant torrent of
christians trying to shove out most other religions in their expansionist agenda, and when they can't try to lawyer them out, they start killing and
2 - points in fact.. people joined jim jones and most of those other whackos on their own free will also.
3 - I don't see pagans and islamics knocking door to door, I don't see buddists preaching on street corners and so on. Lets face it, christian is
the new black. we have dating sites, you all have christian dating sites, and so on and so forth.
4 - im sure it has happened through history, but it seems prevalent in the christian churches.
5 - well, yo have yet to answer the question, unless you assume that babies decided to be stillborn, good people taken way before their time and
disease to spread across the lands here, as well as famine, and such.
how arrogant are you to sit there and think that the trillions of people here now and before you are wrong in their view that the christian faith is a
silly, hateful and cancerous religion that blights this planet?
