    Atheism isn't the basis for my morality it's a metaphysical position I hold on the existence of God.

    Life should teach you to love, if you don't get the lesson you aren't paying attention.

    My guess is that you just aren't paying attention to why you should be moral rather than worrying about where morality is based...

    Do christians lie?
    Do christians steal?
    Do christians take the lords name in vain?
    Do christians kill?

    It's a no true Scotsman fallacy then, because there are plenty of Christians who have murdered someone.

    Perhaps Christians are the superior moralists and there just aren't any of them around. :D

    Christians are perfect and flawless. ThatĀ“s why JesusĀ“ sacrifice was pointless.

    I didn't really notice you before. If people's comments are really childish I don't bother replying.

    That's another atheist lie. Christians have never murdered anyone, but atheists have murdered millions--abortion, Stalin, and Pol Pot.

    Well if Christians don't lie as you say, then you aren't one either.

    So this conversation is obviously pointless.

    I don't honestly care if such a charlatan as you feels you are morally superior to me.

    The point to consider here is straightforward.

    You don't get to play around with the definition of "Christian" to fit with whatever population you feel is... clean enough when your argument is using general terms for religion.

    Otherwise I can just say "No Respectable Atheist(TM) has killed people" and then proceed to write out every single cliche atheist dictator that killed people because "...they were never Respectable Atheists(TM)!"

    Of course you did. You even went so far as to visit my profile. :)

    If by "childish" you mean hard to refute, I can understand that. If you mean "childish" as in ... well ... immature, that hasn't stopped us from responding to yours, so what makes it so difficult for you do to so?

    Why don't you define who you would consider a christian?

    And, you are a christian, correct?
