yep..they sure do have the right to claim their beliefs.

I guess it will take God to prove them wrong.... and He has done it before.

If some humans continue to spit in the face of our creator and insist He doesn't exist, even after He has given substantial proof in miracles, apparitions..don't be surprised when God's patience runs out..




Considering God is supposed to be omnipotent I would hardly consider "miracles" or "apparitions" to be substantial evidence of anything. I dunno about God's patience but mine is wearing thin (PS. I'm a god fearing young man, just not the christian kind).

What a bunch of attention whores, if they want to be atheists then be it, don't waste money on some billboard attacking Christianity.

I would assume, through logic that any billboard of christian nature would be attacking the non-believers then. If I follow your logic that is.

I say either take it from all of us, or let us all have it.

Of course, the previous would cause outcries of oppression and the latter would cause...well, the exact outcome we're discussing.

Where does the right to free speech derive to an atheist? They have the right because they say so? Because they, man, say so?

No, they have the right because the first amendment says so. And last time I checked, it still applies.


But wait, they do not put faith in things on paper.

Where is the evidence besides an old historical document?

With Love,

Your Brother

Now to someone who believes their rights come from a higher authority than man, well then they have an argument.


Actually quite the opposite is true. Being able to APPEAL to authority is hollow, meaningless, as authority is not necessarily correct. A higher authority can be fallible too. (see: Euthyphro Dilemma)

Also, I'm curious as to why you think human beings are unqualified to determine what their own rights should be.

By the way the God of the Bible condones slavery, yet we reasoned out that slavery was wrong and put freedom as a right for all men.

So which is better, having an authority put in place rules that cannot change, or allowing empathy and human reason to find the right path? Self-determination trumps authority in my opinion.

Atheists have an agenda. Plant a seed, see if it grows. Join our team.

Well, sure they can express themselves and try to make people who believe in God look like idiots.

NWO wants a society that does not believe in God, too. I'm not impressed.

All in all, this is just sh_t stirring.

No no, whether people believe in God or not does not matter, it is HOW they believe, these atheists and the christians on the other side are identical if you can see it. Those who go beyond the very idea of belief are what prove dangerous to the power. as long as people have some nonsensical way of living, on floaty ideas, ideals, and dusty books, they will remain bound.

If your idea of a higher authority is one that is fallable in a way that you, it's creation, would detect, then I suggest you climb to an even higher authority. One that baffles your mind and causes you to listen.

You have the right to speak because you were designed with the necessary parts, the mind to formulate language, and the good fortune to have been taught it so you could share your thoughts. Because of all these blessings which came from outside you, yet remain within you, your rights are inalienable by your own will to exercise them.

No man gave you these things.

Thus no man has a right to take them away.

Listing what you have a right to do is a trap to limiting what you can do.

You want to know what I have a right to do?

Anything that I can do.

And I haven't found it's limits yet.

This is because I am ever mindful that others have the same rights. Therefore I circumscribe my actions to not interfere with that of others.

This is true freedom, and the only right of concern, is the right to be.

With Love,

Your Brother

I've heard that argument many times. I'm not gonna get into why i don't go with that but, I rather have a world of ghandis and MLK's than a world with 'common sense' people.


Yeah...where did common sense ever get anyone??

What an absurd attitude to have

When Atheists start posting up billboards they come to the very edge of becoming what they hate; a religion.....

The difference between the two is that religous boards are put up to promote their religion. These Atheist board are put up to slander religion.

Yeah. Posting up billboards is the very definition of a religion. In fact, i think coca cocola is probably a religion. I've seen their billboards.

No but in the sense that they are promoting their ideas, which is in itself a religion(kinda funny when you think about it), and now in a religious manner of "throw up a sign and see if you can get the whole neighbourhood there.
'Nuff to hit my funnybone.
