    Atheists are dreamers. Try a book about the tooth fairy.

    The funniest thing I have ever heard in my life is an Atheist say "I swear to God that I'm an Atheist."

    Hey, I swear to god that I am an atheists too!!:tongue:

    Self destructing sentences are of interest to some philosophers. You should look it up sometimes.

    And why do you have to denegrate people of faith with your avatar? Just curious....do you like it when people of faith give you a hard time for being an Atheist? If you don't than maybe you should try giving them the respect you want for yourself.

    The "swear to god" phrase has been detached from actual religious connotation for a long time. It's just something you say...like Jesus Christ. I say that, but I can assure you it has no real religious meaning while it's being said.
