I’m willing to change my mind with good points, but no one is born an atheist or a theist because babies can’t comprehend a situation that complex, although that is the reason that most of the strongest theists were indoctrinated extremely early. If you teach a child there’s a god next to teaching them not to play with knives, they will take them equally seriously. And those beliefs are enforced even more when they do play with knives and get cut.

“Atheist” simply means…“a person who has no belief in god(s)”. The atheist does not not need to comprehend/be an expert on theism…and thereby deduce that they are therefore not a theist, and conclude they must be an atheist…

“Atheism is, in the broadest sense, the absence of belief in the existence of deities.”

Similarly, from birth, a child is a virgin. They do not need to comprehend the ins and outs of
sexual intercourse…to be a virgin… ;D

Lawyers for past and present clergy…attack grand jury report…:

Lawyers for current and former clergy in six Pennsylvania Roman
Catholic dioceses
named in a pending grand jury report on child abuse
have ripped the massive document as full of “gross mischaracterizations
and falsities…

In their filings, the lawyers
revealed new details of the extensive probe, including the disclosure
that the report names at least 90 abusive clergy who officials suggest
belonged to the Pittsburgh Diocese alone.

That’s
more than the number named in the sweeping 2005 grand jury report on
abuse in the Philadelphia Archdiocese, an inquiry considered to be among
the most thoroughly researched clergy-abuse reports nationwide.

In
more than a dozen separate legal attacks, the lawyers question even the
legal basis for the two-year grand jury investigation, which produced a
report nearly 900 pages long chronicling abuses and cover-ups in six of
Pennsylvania’s eight dioceses
, including Pittsburgh and Scranton.

The lawyers…say the law establishing
statewide grand juries limits them to going after mobsters and corrupt
politicians, not clergy or church officials who harm children.

State prosecutors under
Attorney General Josh Shapiro were “not permitted  to use grand juries
as freewheeling instruments of reform. This is what legislatures are
for,” the attorneys assert.

One
lawyer, Efrem Grail, wrote that prosecutors “cannot use the grand jury
process in a manner not authorized by statute, for publicity, or as a
focus for elected officials’ pet” projects (!).

Joe Grace, spokesperson for Shapiro (the
attorney general), fired back later Friday. “There isn’t a morsel of truth to their allegation,” he said in a statement. “Their desperate claim speaks volumes.”

The
grand jury report, on ice pending the result of the state Supreme Court
appeals,  explores abuse going back decades in the Allentown,
Harrisburg, Erie, and Greensburg Dioceses, as well as Pittsburgh and
Scranton.  In 2016, the Attorney General’s Office released a report on
the Altoona-Johnstown Diocese. Two
tough reports on the Philadelphia Archdiocese came before that. Thus,
the release of the new document would mean every diocese in Pennsylvania
had been scrutinized.”

“"There isn’t a morsel of truth to their allegation,“ Grace said in a
statement, the Inquirer reported. "Their desperate claim speaks
volumes."Speaking earlier this month, Shapiro stood by the report as
"accurate,” and called the legal filings “nothing more than a desperate
attempt to stop the public from learning the truth about their abhorrent
conduct."  https://www.pennlive.com/news/2018/07/priests_church_officials_named.html

“The current delay in the release of the long-awaited report has engendered outcry from victims many of whom charge that powerful forces, including the church, are trying to block the release of the report…” https://www.pennlive.com/news/2018/07/priests_church_officials_named.html

The girl’s sister alleged the the pastor led the teen through the center’s rear entrance to a room, where he then raped her.

Who Wrote The Gospels?

Who Wrote The Gospels?:

Let that sink in…

The bible god chose 12 disciples…who were either illiterate fishermen…or so unimpressed with what they had supposedly witnessed…that not one of them wrote down what they had witnessed…

40 – 60 years after the death of bible Jesus…unknown others started writing stories about Jesus…in a different language and location to the bible Jesus and his disciples…which started the literary journey…of the evolution of the conflicting Gospels…

So the “witness of god”…the Gospels…the very basis of belief in bible Jesus…by bible believers…were never written by witnesses of the supposed events…!

(Hearsay! Your Honor…I rest my case!…Case dismissed…!)

Watch…https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rhM5lbVBgkk  and https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3lBHmpaYUHI

Side note: Paul, who supposedly wrote the majority of the New Testament…was never a disciple or eye-witness of bible Jesus…

Born free…

But then they were herded…corralled…branded…continually fed fabricated fodder…

But for what purpose…?

To be fleeced for life…!

Take the journey…and free yourself
once again…from conditioned/enforced servitude…to a sectarian religious institution…who peddle religious superstition for cash…!

If you have to force your unprovable sectarian religious irrational beliefs on others…you are conceding that they are not self-evident…not self-convincing…not real!

And you are demonstrating that you are a bully…an immoral oppressor…a disrespecter of the rights and freedoms of others…to (rationally) choose to not believe your irrational, unverifiable, baseless sectarian religious assertions…

Dan Barker…ex-fundamentalist minister…articulates to Oxford University…his journey from being deluded with religious fantasy…to embracing the reality…that god(s) are myth…:

“Dan Barker says that he used to be a firm believer in the gospel. He was
evangelical. He tells of parables and fables whose story is meant to be
fictional but the moral tale is what matters. He goes on to highlight
that modern day Christians understand the use of metaphors in the Bible
that everything should not be taken as pure gospel, but says where do we
draw the line between what is real and what is myth?

Following this he states there is no hard evidence for god, that some
tales in the bible can be questioned with simple logic. Also religions
become secular over time…”
