so that we may live in a world free of Jeffrey Dahmer the atheist...
Are you upset that Jeffrey Dahmer killed people? He didn't do it because he's an atheist, he did it because he was crazy. Do you want me to pull up a list of christians who have killed people? Does that make all christians murderers?

You want to live in a world free of Jeffrey Dahmer, but you also want to live in a world where a god killed EVERYBODY and EVERYTHING except for 8 people and some animals?

Oh, that's classic!

So that's what you resort to when losing an intellectual discussion.

I call it God the Creator and I call it "Father"

What makes you call this creator "Father"? Does it have male genitalia? Also, is there a "Mother"? Next, do you have a personal relationship with this "Father"? In other words, can you communicate with this being, and can you hear from it clearly and concisely, and not confuse your thoughts with its voice? How did you stumble upon this truth, that this god, who you call father, is real?

if it's not self-evident I call into question the intellect of the naysayers.

a "Civilization" was built upon these principle right before the worlds eyes...

Classic theist debate tactic!

Ignore all questions, and just keep talking!

I am thinking theism is a kind of mental disorder.

I don't care if you call my intellect into question. I already know I'm not the sharpest knife in the drawer.

But no, imo, it is NOT self-evident. If it were, then why are there so many gods being worshiped today? Why would there be people who do not believe in gods? Are you saying that you and those who believe in your god are the only intelligent people on earth? Mind you, I'm not saying that's what you said...I'm only asking.

LOL, are you claiming that because our nation was founded by some deists and theists that this proves a god, a father god at that, to exist???? Be clear on this please.

nope I'm just making the connection for you that these principles may not be so bad afterall, maybe even adoptable.

that's 2 minutes with Christ's principles in control!

I can imagine what a few hundred more will do... in the ways of uniting the theist that is

Lol, what? You do realize that some of the founders of the U.S. were not christians, right? They were deists. This means that they believed in a supreme being who does not interfere. These principles you speak of aren't necessarily christian in origin. I would imagine that Bhuddist principles would make a great nation.

Now, back to my earlier question: Do you think you could be wrong in your beliefs?

the rate of the atheists ability to consistently lose will only exponentially increase as the population swells, Theist are born at a greater rate...

Lol! Where did THAT come from? Who cares? Anyway, having the majority of people believing a certain way does NOT make that belief true.

and yes they are respected by me... I can't idolize but I could say they are idols.

sometimes I let their audio from one of the series play just while I am going about my routine, even while reading something else.

but I believe in God too
