You don't believe that!
I don't? How do you know? Or are you just calling me (and drummer, I guess) a liar?

Gosh Todd! And you too drummer! Why are you even here?
Why would you pretend to care about other's pain if it made no difference in the end?
Perhaps because caring about other's pain DOES make a difference NOW
Why would you pretend to be meaningful if the universe has no meaning? Now, here's a question for you: Why do you have the 'right' to try to enlighten me about your faith, yet you deny me the right to do the same?
Where did I say the universe has no meaning? I just said "God" isn't the meaning.
Why would you jump to support non-existence of God if truth really doesn't matter anyway?
Where did I say truth doesn't matter? And how did I jump to support non-existence? I merely replied to NickD with MY opinion.
Wouldn't you have better things to do if you were really sure that there is no God?
Agreed! Since I don't waste time on religion, I have more time to spend supporting fellow ch'rs.
Your actions are contrary to your words.
I think you mean MY actions are contrary to YOUR words. Here you sum up the fatal error of all religious fanatics....since I reject your underlying concepts, you draw inaccurate conclusions. One needn't 'beleive' to have compassion. In fact, NONE of the 'Christian attributes' have faith as a pre-requisite. Compassion, caring, honesty, fairness, truthfulness, etc, etc, etc are all traits just as easily possessed by atheists and agnostics as by Christians.
Now, here's a question for you: Why do you have the 'right' to try to enlighten me about your faith, yet you deny me the right to do the same?
