So naturally, he tries to change the subject and make you answer his dull sophistry. God doesn't send anyone to hell - people like "David3036" will have chosen to go there of their own volition. What God will not do is drag people like "David 3036" kicking and screaming into heaven.

God doesn't send anyone to Hell because both God and Hell are fictional, not real. Fantasy doesn't trump reality.

But he'll push them kicking and screaming into hell, because the cut-off for this particular test is just before you get to find out the answer.

What do you lose by believing in Ra, or the Hindu gods, or Neptune? How about UFO's, the Loch Ness Monster, and Bigfoot? Why not believe in ghosts and alien abductions?

What you are giving up is belief based on logic and empirical evidence.

David is a far left homosexual. God is his straw-man, he hates God, it makes him feel better about his homosexuality/

My wife, my five kids and 12 grandchildren will be very surprised to get that news!

My colleagues and the Republican candidates I campaign for will also be surprised to hear that I'm a leftie.

By the way, did you take out your teeth so you don't have to lie through them?

Good one. Now all can see where "anderson659's" theism has taken him and he's done it himself. No surprise here.

Personal attacks do not make your arguments more valid, nor do they denigrate the points made by those who disagree with you.

Well, at least I don't accuse people of lying through their teeth before even bothering to check the facts. Is that a Christian trait?

You appropriated the supposed words of a relative of a man who is no longer here to speak for himself, and ascribed those beliefs to the deceased man. That is false.

The "supposed" words? -- play the video. Are you saying it is false of me to quote the brother, or that it's false of him to say that his dead brother did not believe in a god? Either way, you're wacko. He knew his brother well.
Last week the New York Times published an opinion piece that offered atheism's response to the evil/tragedy in which 20 children and six adults were murdered at the Sandy Hook elementary school in Connecticut.

What prompted Susan Jacoby to write her piece was a colleague telling her that atheism "has nothing to offer when people are suffering."

She wrote the piece, "The Blessings of Atheism" ("It is Here and It is Now!" screams the subhead) to prove her colleague wrong by offering a consoling atheist alternative to religion's consoling belief in an afterlife. Atheists cannot believe that there is any...
