* By the way, you spelled *accept* wrong in the first round.

"Name to me one moral or ethical action or behaviour committed or carried out by a believer that could not have been committed or carried out by an atheist. Can't? Then perhaps try to name one immoral or unethical action or behaviour that has been committed or carried out in the name of God"


"The Bible may, indeed does, contain a warrant for trafficking in humans, for ethnic cleansing, for slavery, for bride-price, and for indiscriminate massacre, but we are not bound by any of it because it was put together by crude, uncultured human mammals. Is it too modern to notice that there is nothing [in the ten commandments] about the protection of children from cruelty, ynothing about rape, nothing about slavery, and nothing about genocide? Or is it too exactingly "in context" to notice that some of these very offenses are about to be positively recommended?~God is not great"


"That which can be asserted without evidence, can be dismissed without evidence."- Christopher Hitchens

"We can pray over the cholera victim, or we can give her 500 milligrams of tetracycline every twelve hours" - Carl Sagan

"You can do what you decide to do " but you cannot decide what you will decide to do." - Sam Harris

"...There is no God"- Psalm 14:1

"The simple believe anything, but the prudent give thought to their steps." - Proverbs 14:15

"If people are good only because they fear punishment, and hope for reward, then we are a sorry lot indeed." - Albert Einstein
