Atheism is a religion - it is a belief that God does not exist.

Look at the love of God, sending His own Son, so He will die for us. How much He loves us to allow for such sacrifice. God that dies for us. Such love, such goodness, such mercy.


You show me what you call a Messiah, I show you what I call "some dude who got nailed to a cross". Just because you believe, doesn't mean that everyone is publicly denying that they believe in what you believe despite secretly believing every word of it. They might just simply not believe. Did you not think that was a possibility?


Christ warned about this. One instance comes to mind, when you go to a town that you are not welcomed.

So until you can prove it. He does not exist.


ITP: Humans made the earth round by proving that it was


Um idk if you're intentionally being facetious here, but if you can't prove it at least to a degree, you might as well say he doesn't exist in the same way we say bigfoot doesn't exist. God as a general concept is nonfalsifiable, but that doesn't mean we should believe it.

Just learned something, I don't think it came across to me before. By Adam we died, by Christ we were saved. One destroyed while the other (Christ) saved from the death.

The consequence of the original sin, put us under the influence of the Devil. The sin itself is wiped away by Baptism, but the consequence remains.

What is great, is that God promised a triumph over the devil, so by believing in God you are in a victorious camp, if you like war stories.

Trust your former atheist sister:

Jennifer Fulwiler is a writer from Austin, Texas who converted to Catholicism after a life of atheism.

How the Search for Truth Led Me from Atheism to Catholicism

One thing I could never get on the same page with my fellow atheists about was the idea of meaning. The other atheists I knew seemed to feel like life was full of purpose despite the fact that we're all nothing more than chemical reactions. I could never get there. In fact, I thought that whole line of thinking was unscientific, and more than a little intellectually dishonest. If everything that we call heroism and glory, and all the significance of all great human achievements, can be reduced to some neurons firing in the human brain, then it's all destined to be extinguished at death. And considering that the entire span of homo sapiens' existence on earth wouldn't even amount to a blip on the radar screen of a 5-billion-year-old universe, it seemed silly to pretend like the 60-odd-year life of some random organism on one of trillions of planets was something special. (I was a blast at parties.)

Just because some people can't wrap their puny minds around their own insignificance in a cosmic sense does not make it any less true.

Great final quote.
What detours I might have been spared, had someone spelt these things out to me.

Why don't you just do us a favor and instead of bothering with the content of your posts, just put links to Wikipedia's page on the relevant logical fallacy instead?
