How can you allow this to turn into not stop just hating on religions. People should not be made to feel like they have to defend their beliefs to the atheists just to have a conversation. How can you let them just sit there and spam their hate?
Pretty disgusting to me, and it angers me to violence.
And so, we return to the topic of propensity for militancy among religious folks.
I remember seeing the meme using hate and Darth Jesus, but I can't look for it right now, so this will have to do. The pope meme isn't as good.
Can you please continue this discussion into a PM thread instead? The discussion is putting people of and spreading a bad mood around the forum. It's bad for the mapping community. Debating about gods existance is good and interesting, but the way this thread has turned out is not very pleasant.
This is what usually happens when people see they're at an edge. Truth is, people will consider for themselves, and it takes time.
This happens almost always on street debates, it's quite funny.
I know there are people who hold their beliefs close to their hearts, atheist or not. I think the way to go is just present the evidence we think would help say what we want to say, and avoid personal attacks or putting down what people believe.
Obviously atheists finds stuff funny, even to the point they don't think what they say feels actually as a mockery to another person.
My suggestion is this:
Put all your proofs or reason why you believe or not believe, then let things be without getting into another person's nerve. And the reason is simple, we're here to discuss and share our perspectives, not making fun or proving anything about ourselves.
Just my two cents.

Whatever you do, wholeheartedly, moment by heartfelt moment, becomes a tool for the expression of your very soul.
Last warning, pall. You're way out of line. If you don't see how, PM me and I'd happily take three hundred posts of discussing it, but cut the crap - you don't need to understand that you're out of line for us to not tolerate your behavior.
Cant argue with someone that keeps throwing up pictures for an argument. I see you`re every bit deluded and uneducated about what you think Christianity/Bible is, now and even since the very start of the thread. If you`re such a closed minded book, why bother to participate in the thread?.
Your memes dont offend me as much as it gives me a chuckle @ how you think.
I can alteast say I came out of this thread with sound understanding of the atheist mind and how it works and what their belief systems are. Some validity sure here and there. But, apart from that, I cant honestly add anything more favorable to say.
Sure Benny Hinn is probably a faker and false preacher. There`s a lot of Nutjob `Christians`(People who think they are, yet deluded and warped in mind which their actions demonstrate) out there too. The Bible prophecy regarding fake preachers, corrupt versions of the gospel being preached etc, is once again correct. Coincidence?. Hmm maybe not, all things considered.
I have been away for several days and was hoping to come back and continue particular discussions but this has crossed several lines. Personal attacks and threats are not okay. Using athiesm to "enlighten" through intellectual attacks on anyone religious is not okay. Using religion to "brand" non-religious or opposing religions as blasphemous and corrupt is not okay. For now, everyone needs to take a break and remember that this is a community for cooperative works. Mocking those you disagree with does not fit within this goal.
