They aren't terribly... oh, what's the word... *bright*, are they?

#7: We have only a short blip of consciousness, then we die, and consciousness is finished.

I've always wondered why the folks who are most insistent on this point waste what little time they think they have on quixotic missions to convert the world from religion. If life is just an electrochemical blip, why trouble yourself to be so evangelistic about your nihilism? Or ... perhaps, could this instinctive zealotry be evidence be that Truth actually has a final, transcendental value, a value that is recognized somewhere deep in the heart?

Because when they hear the truth their God given conscience is still hurting them despite how hard they try to ignore it.

So they try to silent the truth.

I enjoy this-- despite their obvious animosity and enjoyment of nit picking, they are still reading. You never know how many seeds are being planted!

If i ever make it into heaven,i hope Dawkin's and Hitchen's make it there also.I can just imagine the deflated ego's lol.This in itself would be a heavenly experience :-)

The universe created itself and everything that is in it,sound's like the plot of a b movie to me.I cannot comprehend how anyone could believe such a thing.Sorry,yes i do,those who watch the Jerry Springer show and i am not joking either.

Atheist’s do not follow their thinking to the end. They stop at some point and then they are just filled with platitudes, contradictions, and antagonism. I know. I was one. For 25 years I was an atheist. Atheist’s stop at a certain point because I think they see the abyss of nothingness that is the logical end of atheism. I had such a deep hunger to find the truth about the meaning of life that I jumped into the abyss and climbed out a Catholic.
Another point, Atheist’s have a superficial knowledge and understanding of History. They are lazy, they never go to primary sources. To them if the History Channel, A&E, or PBS says it, it must be true.
