This gets my vote.

He's not worth the shit on your shoe.

Yeah, but for some reason I find him fascinating. Kind of like slowing down to look at an accident scene I guess. I can't imagine living with that much delusion.

It is an interesting crop of theists these days. Pops and Alla who are just completely vapid, Q and COTW who are so arrogant in their refusal to consider anything, and Jason who seems to be pretty intelligent and with the potential to overcome the indoctrination. Aliza is the only really confusing one... I have no idea why she is still a believer.

Atheism: it's not just for communists any more!

You have witnessed good things happening to people. So have I, to theists and atheists alike. I've also seen bad things happen. Strangely enough, the rates at which these things happen don't seem to differ. Random chance is an amazing thing. Consider that with 7 billion people on the planet a one-in-a-million event could be happening to 7000 people today.

If you can't demonstrate that your answered prayer is more that a random event then you have no legitimate reason to ascribe a cause to it, especially not a supernatural cause for which no evidence exists.

Once upon a time on the forum I ran a statistical probability of having three airplane passengers with the same birthday sitting side by side on the same row. It happens way more often than one would imagine.

Has to be a miracle.

To better know our enemy.

To commiserate with others in our position.

To learn how best to deal with theists in real life, including being banished from one's family, threats of violence, legal limitations, and having religion shoved down our throats.

Etc.

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

Would it be even more of a miracle if I could guess the date of that birthday?

I never was an atheist. Why not go to a christian forum to better know your "enemy"? Btw.. I don't think of atheists as "the enemy".

Unlike here, where theists are allowed and seldom banned - because you don't scare us-an atheist on a Christian forum enters with a target on their back and is soon banned.
