    wow. Im atheist, one thing i couldn't ever understand was why there are wars over religion and beliefs in god, if you follow through with your beliefs in god and are very christian, then why would you start a war to say "my religion is better than yours"? it doesn't make sense to make war over peace.

    Funny all you Atheist support Obama who is a man of strong Faith. Obama mentions God more than my Parrish priest

    That statement believe it or not came from the Souther Baptist who did reserch on the last 5 Presidents. Obama mentioned God in public more than the others. The Democratic S.B. were using the study to promote Obama, it was posted on CNN.

    I cannot speak for all atheists but I do not support any political candidate based on his religious beliefs. I am not offended by believers. Rather, it seems that believers are offended by me.

    With that type thoughtful response I can't see how anyone would could be offended.
    I'm a Gnostic Christian(very different) who accepts all type thinking, I get it from both sides--Christians and Atheist, and it has been my experience that the Atheist are more apt to attack and criticize.
    The Radical Religious and the RadicaAtheistsst are the same in my mind.
    Fact is neither side knows with CERTAINTY if there is a God/Gods or not---unless they died and jumped on Soda Head to give us a report.

    Right--we are all operating under a belief. Neither has been proven so we have to live the life that works best for each of us as individuals. I do not support either side shoving their beliefs on the other though I am open to civil debate.

    Good for him. I guess he finally got tired of seeing people claiming to be Christan, but being so hateful and mean, and finally got the courage to put that sign up.

    Great sign. I'm not religious. But if I ever need a pastor to talk to, I'd call on/pick Tom Tate.

    Well, I'm glad the god I don't believe in, prefers me over ass-holes who believe in him. In all seriousness, I am glad that they've posted this. There shouldn't be animosity between atheists and Christians. We should disagree, and discuss our disagreements openly, and respectfully.

    I guess I can see how that would be taken as me suggesting that ALL Christians are ass-holes. That's not what I meant. Ass-holery is not limited to any religion. I would definitely distenguish between ass-hole Christians (or Muslims, Jews, Hindu, Pagan, etc.); and the perfectly nice, friendly and respectful (and respectaABLE) of each.

    I read somewhere in the bible lo those many years hence that it wasn't important for one to believe in god, but to act in a manner god would want you to behave. That is a god I can get behind, but then again, I don't believe in god. Then again it doesn't matter. I try hard to be good to people in my passing. Just don't piss me of on SH.

    I really would like to know for sure if there is a God or not. You seem to know--how is this possible? Did you die already and have knoweldge the rest of us do not? If so, teach me how you beat death--it's a really useful tool to have

    I don't take things on faith unless I know who is asking me to. I do not know God, therefore God does not exist to me. The conviction I have as to god's existence is as strong as ANYONES conviction that god does exist. There is no difference except in the side of the conviction one is on. Mine does not require faith. It requires a substantial lack of reason and logic, science and observation.

    I used to work at god and religion with years on committees at my temple. Too much work for zero reward. I would never work this hard at a job for the same. I would only work this hard for charitable reasons and I do not need god or religion and its dogma/traditions for this.

    Read what you posted. Prove Love exists, prove there is no God---you can't so your are a man of faith if you believe in these things
