I wonder how many people on here who are so brash with their comments have actually studied religious history beyond what they read on the internet. I would guess not too many.
Well, first of all, what's wrong with the information on the internet? The internet is one of the most important inventions in history, what's wrong with using it? Second of all, I (along with MANY other atheists) went to Catholic school where I was forced to take classes on religion and study the Bible. I also had a Bar Mitzvah, and guess what I had to study before I had it? That's right, the Bible. I've believed for a very long time that there is no quicker route to atheism than exposure to religion.
The question isn't how many atheists have read the Bible; it's how many Christians have.
I also wonder why some of you are so hostile towards Christianity?
What's hostile about stating the fact that there is no evidence to support God's existence?
I have never seen a Christian poster starting a thread attacking non-believers? It's too funny to me in reality. I swear some people get so insecure and touchy when it comes to other people's beliefs. LOL
As soon as people start criticizing Christianity, you claim we're "attacking" Christians. Who's insecure?
If you don't want to discuss your beliefs that's fine, just don't post in a thread that's all about religious beliefs.
