happened with Israel and it happened with Christian Rome, we are no different.
Do you genuinely believe that or is it just a silly bit of trolling to pass time on the weekend?
Interesting beliefs but, that is all they are, faith based assertions. Until such time as there is any evidence to support claims of gods I shall
continue to lack belief in any of them.
I must commend your faith however. Atheism is a very courageous religion. To believe that nothing created everything, and that the
incredible intricate complexity of life is just an accident, takes astounding faith.
You like many religious types fail to grasp what faith is. I have seen nothing to convince me of the existence of any gods, I therefore do not believe
in them. If I was to state "there are no gods" then that would take faith as there is no way I could prove such a statement. I do not make such
assertions though, I just do not believe as you do. Oh, and in case the concept is difficult for you I'll try to simplify it: Atheism is a lack of
belief in gods. A lack of belief in gods is not a religion, no matter how much you would like it to be.
Frankly I'm confused why so many religious folk are so desperate to present a lack of faith as a religion, it just seems such a stupid idea to me and
anyone who thinks rationally.
As for the Falklands, I too believe in self determination. Unfortunately most everyone else does not believe in that. They believe in
imposing their will on others in the form of taxes, stealing and the promotion of the worship of the state.
It is not about 'worship' of the state, just a realisation that an organised society formed though a democratic voting process is what fixes roads,
provides healthcare, collects the trash and all the other things required to have a decent life. Your gods do none of that, and to be blunt, I think
your argument is ridiculous.
If the UK had not acted as it had in 1982 the Falkland Islanders would still be under the rule of an invading Argentinian force. Without organised
government there would not have been the recent referendum, or are you saying some god/s would have sorted both issues out for us? It really would
take some blind faith to believe in that idea.
