    The real problem is that there is no god.

  2. Devout Atheist Says:

    Much evil has been committed in the name of God. Personally, as soon as I find a company or person I’m considering conducting business, is what I consider, “fringe religious”. I stop all dealings. I’ve yet to be screwed by someone professing no religion.

  3. Steve Says:

    The real problem is that many people are superstitious and live in fear of death.

    MASS HYSTERIA FOR THE WEAK OF MIND ,I WONDER HOW THEY JUSTIFIDE CANNIBALISM IN ONE OF THERE CRUSADE`S ON JERUSILOM WHEN THEY RAN OUT OF FOOD , OR KILLING ANYTHING IN SIGHT AS THERE THIRST FOR BLOOD GREW ONCE THEY GOT THERE ,IN THE NAME OF GOD THEY SAY . HOW CAN ANYBODY FOLLOW A CULT KNOWING IT WAS ALL PAVED IN BLOOD. I WOULD RATHER STAND ALONE ,THAN DISCREDIT MY INTEGRITY IN SUCH A FASHION. HITLER ONCE SAID IT`S BETTER TO TELL ONE BIG LIE THAN TELL ALOT OF LITTLE ONE`S. GOD BEING THE BIGGEST OF THEM ALL.

    The ones who is suppose to uphods faith are the ones who carries tons of responsibilities upholding it,not simply justify doing anything as the quote twist it. Noreflection,if god is the biggest liar,than your nose might have been located upside down.

  6. solomon Says:

    Steve, your accusations of ones fear of death is just a lame one.What is there to fear of.Neither you fear it or otherwise no one except god can escape from it.Faith is as real and have nothing to do with superstitious.Its only the Atheist who intentionally categorize it to make it sounds silly.

  7. solomon Says:

    Ah….I don’t have to respond to some loser who is out of argument.

  8. solomon Says:

    Dear dave, there will be real problems when one no longer believe there is god.

  9. sam Says:

    Atheists seem to always have a bad reputation. Those who questioned the word of God have always been looked down on. I deny the existence of the Holy Spirit and yet I live a good life. Having god in your life Does Not make you a good person! I really hope you don’t believe that christians are above rape, murder, corruption etc. Having morals and respect for others are the keys to living a good life.

  10. solomon Says:

    Dear sam, religion not in any circumstances are the reason one becomes low in morals or that sort but have actually managed to control them,without it,situations might be worse.Your sayings that religion pose a negative effect was just a lame accusation. To live a good life does not solely depends good morals alone.Life is full of complicated process in which religion pose a conducive control in which one can live in a balance or equilibrium state. For example homosexuality claimed ethical or nothing wrong in moral value by the gays have proven to show a negative effect on society.

  11. Stevemon Says:

    People have got to upholds faith and carry burdens so they can be responsive to weight, not just make rules as stated by warped excerpt.

    Noreflection,if god is the biggest liar,than your caps lock is stuck on.

  12. Stevemon Says:

    Dear Dave, Solomon is right, there will be real problems for the church when one no longer believe there is god. As quote says, one with faiths in gods will justify anything.

  13. Stevemon Says:

    Well sure, Sam, Like Dear Solomon says, lack of religion is why one becomes low in morals. And even if you manage to be moral it might be even worse without religions. Otherwise, it’s another lame accusation against religion, because life is complicated and a process where lifes conducive controls stay in balance my equilibrium from a state. Like Solomon says, gays have been proven a negative effect on society’s religions.

    Like the quote says, as long as we have faith in religions we can justify homophobic gay-bashing, really anything we want to live a good life in a society where god runs everything.

  14. solomon Says:

    Thank you Stevemon for your support.All the while I thought I’am alone facing the Atheists sharks. God will allways be with his subjects I guess.Other true viewers are most welcomed to give your views even its a single tread as long as youre bringing truth.Come on..

  15. Holysmokes Says:

    LMAO! Talk about a lack of reading comprehension!
    Anyhow, this quote is spot on. We see the evidence daily. Whether it’s muslims blowing people up in the name of their god, or christians dumping loads of cash into the coffers of evangelists who wear $2000.00 suits. So long as the deed is in the name of god, then it’s justified.

    “The real problem is not that those who stop believing in God will believe in anything, but that those who have faith in God can justify doing anything.”

    I’ve heard the statement “If you don’t believe in something then you’ll fall for anything” of which the quote seems a reprise. No more than a neat soundbite written on tissue paper in either case. When I believed in god, I DID believe in anything. I remember being a kid and nodding with the plausibility of miracles, the existence of demons, ghosts, spirits, the soul, hell and heaven. I also watched “In Search Of” (old tv show presenting myths as real) with the sincere hope that they were on the verge of finally capturing a Big Foot.

    But then you grow up and you realize that things require evidence to require belief and it all falls from you and you need better reasons to think the world is rich and mysterious still.

    So, lack of belief in god helps you avoid other ridiculous beliefs. As for the “justify doing anything” bit – recent events in Islam and Catholicism provide all the proof anyone should need.

  17. solomon Says:

    Capt’n, so you think we have’nt gone thru those notions “things require evidence to require belief”?We have surpass higher than that.You need more than just evidence.You need reasoning and wondering,and that is the main point youve been running away from all this while.And what sort of evidence you do require?Not all evidence you can aquire right there and then,a lot of it not grasp within the human generation.Even a simple court case is lack of evidence.Without reasoning one is no near or nowhere in finding truth.

  18. Atheist MC Says:

    Can do no better than quote RD here

    “(Religion) With or without it you would have good people doing good things and evil people doing evil things. But for good people to do evil things, that takes religion”

  19. sam Says:

    hahaha really solomon, really? why dont you read what i wrote again! Anywhere in my statement did I say that religion pose a negative effect? No, I did not. I am very curious why you believe gays have proven a negative effect on society?

  20. GoodWithoutGod Says:

    Those who believe in God are more susceptible to believe in anything, like talking snakes, walking on water, rising from the dead, etc.

    And dropping one crutch for another isn’t the answer, either. Throw the crutch away and walk the path of freedom on your own! That is what atheists have learned to do.

  21. solomon Says:

    Dear sam, I will give you a very simple example how gays pose a negative effect,even a disastrous one to society and human survival.Imagine if all men become gays.Theres no meaning having a family institution.The human race will soon become extinct.Women or wifes will crave their lusts by humping pillows or vibrators or among themselves.I hope other extinct species like dinosaurs have not been practicing such despicable act.

  22. solomon Says:

    Dear sam, You might have not said religion pose a negative effect,but have have implied so by saying ‘Having god in your life Does Not make you a good person!’.See…I’am well aware.

  23. sam Says:

    Its crazy how you read into things to make them negative toward others. I was simply saying that you can live a good life and not have “God” in it. In no way does that mean that religion poses a negative effect. You are absolutely ignorant if you really believe that by having gays in this world, humanity will die out. Its amazing how closed minded some people are!

  24. solomon Says:

    I was just citing a very simple example.Its possible is’nt it?

  25. sam Says:

    No it is absolutely not possible that the human race will end because same sex people love each other.

  26. solomon Says:

    Can love only between same sex produce offsprings?

  27. Alavi Hossain Says:

    solomon,
    think about how many gays there are. do u really think this minority is going to end our species? why is the world population growth so high right now then? do u think that these gays are so afraid that they are not having gay sex but actually impregnating women behind the scenes? muhammad ibn ‘abbdull?h on a pop-sicle stick. it amazes me how retarded you are.

    but anyways, i am in complete agreement with this quote. how else do u explain the mentality of bin laden, george w bush, and emperor alexius of the byzantine empire?

  28. solomon Says:

    Alavi,

    The world population is so high right now coz religion have succeeded to condoned the situation.
    mentality of bin laden, george w bush, and emperor alexius of the byzantine empire=wait till they undergo mentality tests.
