    Do any of you folks actually understand genuine Christianity and what it means, how it impacts contemporary society?

    That anyone who just tried to forward Pascal as if it meant jack shit now tries to talk about being educated is laughable.

    Rome accepted death as part of living

    Christianity denies its existence.

    Our biggest contributers to social programs in our state are atheists ... go figure that a christian journalist writing for a christian site would completely ignore them, as well as all the Jewish people who support a lot of commerce and the pagans who sacrifice almost all they have for the poor ... then there's the atheists who support the economy by spending a ton of money on whatever they want, whenever they want, instead of using it all on rebuilding churches every year. ;)

    Despite the vastness of the Christian population worldwide, Atheists spend far more time discounting Christianity than we do attempting to convert anyone. There are exceptions to every rule, with every religion and zealots are indeed a problem with perhaps more than their share of skeletons in their closets, I'm sure. But mainstream Christianity of those who live a very peaceful, fulfilled, benevolent life do not knock on doors, protest against any other religion, bomb abortion clinics, and spread tyranny and destruction throughout the world.

    Imagine that!

    Where did your god come from? Who or what created this invisible entity? Who or what created the entitiy that created your invisible entity? on into infinity....

    Sorry .... yours and a billion others like you don't have enough power in your faith to push me and millions like me off of a foundation of reality. I would gladly ignore you if given the opportunity. Like the "night of the living dead" you zombies just keep popping up all over the place.

    First ... "vastness of the Christian population worldwide" ... WTH are you smoking ... for two reasons from that statement. Secondly ... um, no. Most atheists don't give a rat's ass about christians any more than they do for any other religion ... you are painting with the same broad strokes you seem to wish that others would not paint christians with ... so turn about is fair play, until you stop seeing everyone else as evil, you cannot expect everyone else to see you as any more than a religious zealot trying to prove to yourself that your own belief is valid ... oh wait ...

    Is there some point here? And who do I see as evil? Sheeesh!

    I'm not complaining about your contentions. That's your disposition, not mine. I'm simply qualifying the viability of Christianity against your contention. I'm not complaining nor condeming it. This is a message board for discussion about religion right?

    Would you rather talk about something else that makes you less uncomfortable?

    And? I mean would there be any point to including all religions in a debate? There are many encyclopedias on the internet for that. No?
