"No, everyone is born Christian. Only later in life do people choose to stray from Jesus and worship satan instead. Atheists have the greatest "cover" of all, they insist they believe in no god yet most polls done and the latest research indicates that they are actually a different sect of Muslims."

Free_At_Last says:
"Religion is the Devils greatest achievement. In the guise of religion he has pulled off his most audacious coup. He has flagrantly masqueraded as God. He has had us bow down and worship him. He has had us commit every type of evil in the name of holiness. He has passed off his bigotry as Gods opinions. He has had us segregate humanity into the believers and non believers, the saved and the damned. He has convinced us that God likes us but not them; and convinced them that God likes them, but not us. And then, in a stroke of dark brilliance, he warns his faithful flock of sheep: 'Be sure you do not pay heed to anyone but me, for the Devil is a wily wolf and he will surelly trick you'."-Tim Freke & Peter Gandy.

IFeelFree says:
"It is an erroneous assumption of limited minds that great ones such as Jesus, Krishna, and other divine incarnations are gone from the earth when they are no longer visible to human sight. This is not so... Jesus Christ is very much alive and active today. In Spirit and occasionally taking on a flesh-and-blood form, he is working unseen by the masses for the regeneration of the world. With his all-embracing love, Jesus is not content merely to enjoy his blissful consciousness in Heaven. He is deeply concerned for mankind and wishes to give his followers the means to attain the divine freedom of entry into God's Infinite Kingdom...." - Paramahansa Yogananda

That will probably offend both atheists and Christians.

Lufer says:
"God has infinite wisdom, goodness and power; he created the universe.... He created this speck of dirt and the human species for his glory; and with deliberate design of making nine-tenths of our species miserable for ever for his glory. This is the doctrine of Christian theologians, in general, ten to one.... Wretch! What is his glory? Is he ambitious? Does he want promotion? Is he vain, tickled with adulation, exulting and triumphing in his power and the sweetness of his vengeance? Pardon me, my maker, for these awful questions." - John Adams (1735-1826), founding father and second U.S. president.

"The United States of America is in no sense founded on the Christian religion." - John Adams (1735-1826), founding father and second U.S. president.

Lufer says:
"Imagine the people who believe such things and who are not ashamed to ignore, totally, all the patient findings of thinking minds through all the centuries since the bible was written. And it is these ignorant people, the most uneducated, the most unimaginative, the most unthinking among us, who would make themselves the guides and leaders of us all; who would force their feeble and childish beliefs on us; who would invade our schools and libraries and homes. I personally resent it bitterly." - Isaac Asimov (1920-1992), Russian born American biochemist.

"There is no point in arguing with a fool. They will just drag you down to their level, then beat you with experience."

(Had to post this one, considering some of the debates on this board....)

Can't remember who it's by though!

"In every age, natural philosophy [science] had a troublesome adversary and hard to deal with; namely, superstition, and the blind and immoderate zeal of religion." - Sir Francis Bacon (1561-1626), father of the scientific method.

Lufer says:
And in response to whoknows thread, "Atheism has lost the battle with christianity,":

"Faith is most robust in countries where there is great social inequality and poor state provision--in Nigeria, India and Indonesia over 90% of people count themselves as believers. This is no accident.... Where the state fails, religion steps in.... Even today, boys in remote parts of Afghanistan attend Taliban-run madrasas for the simple reason that they get a meal there.... Religious groups wield tremendous power over the uneducated and dependent poor." - Vanessa Baird

For it is with the mysteries of our religion, as with wholesome pills for the sick, which swallowed whole, have the virtue to cure, but chewed, are for the most part cast up again without effect. -Thomas Hobbes

And Lol @ IFF. "That will probably offend both atheists and Christians."
I guess that makes you an equal opportunity offender. ;-)

Lufer: And with regard to the current spread of Christianity[!] in the third world:

...in Nigeria, India and Indonesia over 90% of people count themselves as believers...

IFF: Nonsense. 90% of Indians are Hindu. There are also a lot of Buddhists and Muslim. Only about 2% are Christian.
