    I find it odd that most of the comments on topics dealing with religion are made by atheists. I have noticed this phenomenon on many message boards on the internet.

    It seems that atheism is more than just the belief that God does not exist. Atheists actively and aggressively condemn religion and belittle those who believe in God. Atheists seek to discredit, mock and belittle religion and harass it's followers. They seek out internet forums that discuss religion only to mock and taunt the believers. Atheist groups pay for billboards, TV and bus signs that ridicule religion and God. They tear down crosses at cemeteries and war memorials. They bring court cases to remove the word God from our currency and our schools and to have the Ten Commandments removed from our courthouses. Predominant Atheists even write books about their so called non-belief. It seems to me that: "Thou atheists doth protest too much".

    It seems that atheists have a disdain for God, religion and their followers. It seems that atheists are angry with God. If this is true, then they aren't atheists at all. Could it be that atheists just hate or resent God?

    Ask any atheist you know to go out side, shoot both middle fingers up to the sky and yell: "F*ck You God!".

    Haven't found a single one yet that'll do it.

    I have............no lightening bolt out of the sky struck me down. Because there's a perfectly reasonable scientific explanation for lightening, not that someones silly god is angry. :)

    Because you and most other religious people simply adore those that on a fundamental level don't believe in the god you worship, whether they're vocal about it or not. [/sarcasm]

    You only think they're going to hell, which I assume is a topic taken seriously by you.

    We're not afraid of our God...we respect our God.

    He's letting you think about it....he doesn't ALWAYS use lightening whenever some imbecile doesn't something stupid. He lets you think about it.....gives you a chance to repent. Someday you're luck will run out.....

    Sounds like you have to be careful about what you say or else

    Why worship a God that can be such a douche if you tick him off?
