I love how you've ignored all of my previous on-point responses, and only when I go off on a tangent because I'm getting bored with talking to a wall, now do you decide to finally respond to me... Dodgy

However the point that you've seemed to miss is this; many of the non-religious are non-religious because we know so much more about religion than the religious. This might seem surprising to those who profess belief, but many of the people here who no longer believe did at one time; and many of them were deeply entrenched in their religions.

So it should not come as a surprise, all things considered, that some non-religious folk talk about religion a lot.

Everyone's has posited pretty much the same thing: Those figures being myths is less important than their supposed contributions.

And that is fine. I don't mind at all that you talk about religion. I said that in response to someone who questioned why a non-Christian would talk about Christianity.

For someone claiming to be non-religious, you sure talk a lot about religion(s).

actually,i don't. I only talk about religion if people have asked my opinion,wich they do rarely since they know they won't like the answer

I don't really like going outside.
It's too damn "peopley" out there....

You've made thousands of posts on this forum, and they don't have to do with religion or God?

Fair enough but i fail to see how Christianity is any different from other religions.

Dreams/Hallucinations/delusions are not evidence
Wishful thinking is not evidence
Disproved statements&Illogical conclusions are not evidence
Logical fallacies&Unsubstantiated claims are not evidence
Vague prophecies is not evidence
Data that requires a certain belief is not evidence

You did not reply to my post about 'attributions'. That's ok. You have no obligation to respond to everyone.

But I see above that you have responded in a way, by instead using the word 'contributions'.

And yes, I think I agree with your summary that "Those figures being myths is less important than their supposed contributions."

Hitch said it rather well...

Really? Then please share with us YOUR views, I think you have asked us plenty of questions without revealing your own stance. Did you do an intro post so we can get to know you a bit?

I think you know you have walked into a room of mostly atheists and agnostics, questioned, and now, it's your turn to share about you. It's how a community works.

I have answered any I deem worthy of such.

I think there's quite a few of us that would like my question answered.

Because assholes like you insist on coming in here and trolling your bullshit fairy stories. And lobby governments to pass laws forcing your fucking fairy tales down our throats and our childrens' throats. And so we band together in forums like this to discuss how to get your fucking boots off our fucking necks. So what.

It's Special Pleadings all the way down!
