I have a question that needs to be answered to help me argue better against the bible. Can someone e-mail me to give me some help.
May 23, 2018
Ok you can contact me as you wish. Or shall I ask the question here? I really want to put this person in their self-righteous place.
Thank you very much for the birthday wishes.

Thank you Stephen, I haven't heard from Atheist Universe lately so It's good to hear from you.
Jul 24, 2018
I'm not familiar with the Atheist Universe site, although I know I visited some time in the past as I occasionally get posts in my Inbox. Currently I'm a big fan and participant in Quora where I get to communicate with atheist and theists, and being a confirmed anti-theist I find that format very enjoyable. Have you visited Quora?
Hi, thank you )

Just to let you know I'm alive, it was a close thing a few times and I've been in hospital for a few weeks the place seems to be much better run now, i heard in the last year or so they had a big overhaul of how it was run. I'm pleased they have changed it and not just ticked a few boxes.
I'm still not very well but at the moment I'm hanging on. I have to say the staff were amazing. My brain hasn't been very switched on for a while and I only realized yesterday that I've missed 5 weeks of my life and I hadn't noticed. Still in grateful to be here and at some point will hopefully be well enough to read through some of the things on here that I've missed.
Hope you are doing well.
All the best Suzanna

Stephen: I don't know who monitors or moderates Atheist Universe, but I think we got a troll in the camp, by the name of Joy or Joyce or Stella:http://atheistuniverse.net/profile/JoyceGyimahRather variations on the old Nigerian Prince routine, I suspect, with her profile conveniently set to PRIVATE. Please have a look or pass this on to someone who can check this person out properly.

Thanks Stephen. Just back from a short break. Once again, thank you.

Best to you my friend.
Many thanks, Stephen!

Thanks, Stephen, much appreciated. So... how active is A.U.? I'm on at least one, maybe 2-3 other similar sites, but only one of them is really active to any degree. It's my hope that A.U. is more active.

Thanks, Stephen. Kitty massage looks good....I should try it.

I'll try to check in more often; not a very high bar though. lol

Thanks Stephen. Great you are Londoner as well. Kind of put a nice smile on my face. Stay safe however.
Mar 22, 2020
Yeah, I agree with you, that's our only option.
Sure, bar restriction to only 4 per customer on a number of items that I barely notice in shops, no empty shelves in Haringey neighborhood and no lines of humans in front of supermarkets. I applaud the supermarkets led by Aldi for putting all customers first with their restrictions on the supposedly essential items though.
Ok, thanks for the add, will look forward to seeing what's here.

Hi Stephen - Thanks for your comments. I don't really mind people who are prepared to argue their case to me for a god of some description becasue there is no real arugment. I never went to university although I did study various religions with the OU later in life along - with other things to do with the human condition - but, even without the Higher Education of some, I seem to find it incredibly easy to argue the Atheist case - because the case for a god is so weak. It quite surprises me really that their case can be torn apart quite so easily (even by someone of my limited education) once you dispense with 'blind faith' which, in the end, is all they can end up arguing. I have even had discussions with those that have studied and made a career in the church - and in the end it all comes down to the same thing - you just have to 'believe' without any evidence apart from that which has been manufactured in the past by others of faith in order to obtain and keep power over the (what was then) uneducated masses. They will always argue that the Big Bang cannot be the origin of everything - because it's stupid to believe that something can come from nothing and then they go on to argue that their god came from nothing in order to create us - which really is the definition of arguing against yourself. Now, I don't know if the Big Bang is the answer - nor do scientists - that's just the best explanation they have at the moment - until knowledge improves on the matter - at which point they will look at the evidence and see where it leads them. This is the complete opposite of what religion tells us to believe - that god came from nothing to create the universe and that, despite any evidence to the contrary - we must continue to believe that - oh yes, and if we don't, we will roast in the burning pits of their imaginary hell for eternity - so speaks their all powerful and 'forgiving' god. Anyway - if evidence ever comes along to prove me wrong - I will follow that evidence - as all rational people would. Take care now. Pete BG

Hi, and thanks for your welcome!
Noticed your photo about how "Jesus was a socialist"... reminds me of American right-wingers' objection to universal healthcare because of the "moral hazard" that people would be getting "undeserved" services they didn't individually pay or insure for. Chances are a healthy* majority of those right-wingers are Christians, whose entire religion is founded on the biggest moral hazard of all, according to their beliefs: salvation and a blissful afterlife freely given, not through any merits or work of people's own, but as a completely unearned and free gift! If it was good enough for their Jesus...

Thanks a lot, Stephen. As it happens, this one is the big 7-0, LXX, Three Score and Ten ... and as it happens, I'm doing well for all those years.
