And the number ONE reason: God does NOT exist. And even if she did, she's obviously insane.

How does it feel to be mentioned in the Holy Bible? You are you know, you are called 'scoffer (s).' I wonder how you will meet your death? like Voltaire, screaming? in fear? certanly not with blasphemous bravado?

As am I. I talk with Him regularly. He replies. So do millions of people. And no, "mass delusion" does not come within 7 orders of magnitude of explaining that simple, easily verifiable fact.

Atheism has nothing to do with reason; it's the refusal to engage in reason. Most atheism, in fact, is nothing but personal anger redirected improperly away from its proper object (self, parents, teachers) and toward the truths that they embody imperfectly.

No you clearly have no understanding what atheism is or an atheist for that matter. Read a book other than your bible and you might "get it". Try the dictionary, that should clear up what an atheist is.

See no anger there.

My late bro in law was raised by a godly, praying woman. His father was a verbal bully and drinker. She died when he was 16 and I saw a look in his face at the funeral home I will never forget..he got mad at God for taking her (she died young of cancer). She sacrificed so he and his other siblings could go to a Lutheran parochial grade school and H S. He turned away from GOD and claimed he was an athiest and cussed me out when I told him I knew why. He died not long ago of cancer, his older brother (my pastor husband and his sister) prayed for him on his death bed. My husband laid hands on his arm and in the midst of his prayer he said he felt a response and the sister reported that he squeezed her hand at the same time. So...

we believe he repented on his death bed and died almost immediately afterwards.
His wife, an atheist with an atitude scoffed at their request but allowed them to pray, however I would never want to attend another funeral planned by an atheist with her attitude.

Faith? I think what you have, more properly, can be called schizophrenia.

As a Christian, it can be difficult to reconcile all the evil that happens in the world with an all knowing, all powerful loving God who could stop it if He wants, but chooses not to do so. If our hearts break for the innocent children who were senselessly murdered at Sandy Hook Elementary, how can a God who loves us not feel the same way? If any of us had known what Adam Lanza was going to do, we would have done anything in our power to stop him, so why didn't God? All too often we tend to quote...
