OK folks, we have a genuine islamophile in our midst. I have learned a great deal from his videos, but I doubt it is what he hoped I would learn. I would venture that your average Muslim is not any more noxious than your average Christian, but both fundamentalist Christians and fundamentalist Muslims are scary! Just so everyone is clear on this; I am armed and I do know how to use it!

I posit, that while religions foment for the existence of God, the mere existence of religions is pretty conclusive evidence for the existence not of God, but of Satan. Traditionally, it is Satan's overriding desire to spread pain, evil, suffering, disharmony, etc. among mankind. What better way to achieve his desires than to create religion. Religions assures that various groups of humans will be constantly struggling to eliminate each other. It does not allow for compromise, how can one do… Continue

It is my contention that if one grew up without ever hearing of gods, religion, and the supernatural; that when one was presented with these concepts for the first time, one would laugh one's ass off!

When I was 7, two neighborhood kids grabbed me, one held my arms while the other punched me in the stomach repeatedly while yelling "dirty catholic!"

When I was 16, the Fellowship of Christian Athletes at my high school surrounded me and threatened to beat my ass if I didn't start praying with the rest of the team. When I… Continue

I did not become an atheist because of what others said, I simply was an atheist.

The anti-ontological argument for God: God is that which nothing lesser than, can be conceived. If you can imagine a god that is impotent, but only exists in your imagination, that is not the least of gods that can be imagined.
A God that really exists, but is impotent is conceiveably the least of all Gods! Ergo, God exists, but he's totally irrelevant!

To followers of the three major western religions Abraham is a pious man, trying his best to do what his god expects. To me; Abraham is obviously a classic Paranoid Schizophrenic in serious need of some major psychotropic medication.
