Their preaching has imperiled others' lives, as in Africa today.

How so? I'd like to hear more on this. Thanks.

Skepticism is not a position; it is an approach to claims.
Science is not a subject, but a method.

He says he wants water and is thirsty, and he sees the error of his ways and asks Abraham to send witnesses to his brothers up above so they can avoid judgment. Overall, I tend to find that non-Christians constantly bring up hell because there are some downright medieval perceptions of it. The muslim hell is a REALLY bad place, though. That is a torture pit and one reason I would look askance at Islam.

As for the other thing you mentioned, Heaven is a place of forgiveness and acceptance. Whom have you raped and murdered? Likely no one, but if you say you are perfect, you remind me of all the people in prison today--they're all innocent, don't you know?
The problem with religion is things tend to go right over your head while your busy not questioning and simply accepting on faith... like Rahn127's post for example.

P.S. Any hell that isn't a really bad place isn't hell and you're just kidding yourself.

I am not accountable to any God. I am accountable to myself - and not because I think I am God as some theists would try to assert - but because, no matter what actions I take, thoughts I think, or words I utter, I have to be able to live with myself.

Bonus: Jesus was not the first of these, chronologically.

Perhaps they are also bothered by people publicly preaching to others.

Are you kidding? Even Google has some standards.

We have enough youth. How about looking for the Fountain of Smart?

Every other religion need good works- such as not sinning or following some sort of rules.

Not only is that an extremely broad statement because there are tons of religions, but I think a lot of different religions actually do believe that their god is the loving savior.

She also said the old testament is there to show that we can never be good enough without Jesus. Facepalm

So basically, god waited all those years in the old testament before he sent Jesus, caused all that chaos (to say the least), let people get brutally punished and killed for not following his law...all so that he could make a fucking point.

Oh, well now I feel silly for being an atheist.

Really wasn't that hard.

You can't convince someone to not believe something.
You can only get them to ask questions about their belief.
Some eventually figure it out.

Hell is a terrible place to be, yes. But hyperbole about it doesn't help my cause or that of an atheist. G.K. Chesterton called hell a compliment to the dignity of free will.

I'm told atheists on forums like TTA are bitter and angry. If you are not, your posts to me will be respectful, insightful and thoughtful. Prove me wrong by your adherence to decent behavior.
