What would you say to a Christian monitoring this website?

Here's what I would say...

1. Welcome. Notice God isn't striking you dead for being here.

2. The voice in your head you think is God is actually your own. You give God way to much credit for the problems you actually work through. He has the exact same success rate as that of random chance.

3. Not one word of the New Testament was written by an eyewitness. Saul/Paul had an hallucination up to 20 years after the alleged resurrection and finally wrote 6 to 13 letters around 10 years after that. The 4 major gospels were all written (based on Paul's letters) 50 to ~150 years after the resurrection by people starting a new cult. It is not the Word of God. It is a Work of Man written generations after the supposed events and then translated and revised over centuries.

4. Check out this website too. It will open your eyes to the Work of Man. It's not that God works in mysterious ways. It's the ignorance and superstitions of ancient men that created all the mysteries.

5. Do you believe that 2500+ years ago some Jewish priests had the tools, knowledge and wherewithal to determine how the earth was created? They created a magical story that has no basis in reality. Can you really believe in a talking snake? How did God snap his fingers and create billions of galaxies, but he couldn't stop 19 hijackers on 9/11?

6. How moral is a book in which the 3rd person in the world kills the 4th person? The world murder rate at that moment was 33%. He killed his own brother because God like dead animal sacrifices instead of fruits and vegetables. What was his punishment too? He got to live for 900 more years? Also, how moral is a book in which by the end of it, we all have to die?

7. Hoping you live forever is a coward's way of facing their own mortality. How ironic is the belief in that when you die, you live forever. Live this life like it's the only one you have, because it is.

8. At it's core, religion is a business. It is run by people whose livelihood depends on self-perpetuating the myths and selling you something that doesn't exist. They need you (and your money) a hell of a lot more than you need them.

9. Think for yourself. It's what the bible and it's salesmen do not want you to do.

10. Don't worry. Faith is just the belief in something in which no proof exists. But please, keep your faith out of our lives and we'll keep our science out of yours.

"What's that t on your necklace stand for?"
The necklace? That's just a dead guy nailed to a cross - it's a symbol of love and compassion.
Lenny Bruce was fond of pointing out that it would have been an electric chair if Jesus had come along in our time.
And just forget about a lethal injection needle. It would ruin the whole torture worship angle.
Loved the Bruce. Another quote, "We gotta quit quoting the bible and start saying something"
And brutality. :)

I would tell them to go away. They have managed to ruin other facets of my existence, stay the hell out of this one.

I fell on this corner of the web by accident so unless a theist is directed or actively seeking atheist sights, I doubt there are many surveyors.

If, on the off chance, a theist happens to read this: Howdy. Stay awhile, you might learn something.
Welcome to reality.

If you can't handle reality...

... welcome back to religion.
Just make sure you obediently follow any and all revisions we make to your scripture.
Ignore the fact that it is us Atheists who amend your scripture...
...And never ever question our orders.

If you're not with us, you should at least be obedient.
I was once recovering from religion and if i had found this post at an earlier time it really would have helped my realize a few things sooner. In my life i was born catholic, baptized baptist, join a pentacostal church , even went mormon , and jahovas witness , and through studying those religions i wish someone had pointed me in this direction from the beginning so i would have to say i welcome all christians to hover on this site and maybe thier eyes will be opened as mine were .
When I started this post, I wondered if I'd get a reply like this. I'm glad your eyes are now open! And Welcome to A/N!
I would say nothing.

I really don't care about the personal superstitions of others,unless they get in my face. Although pretty pompous and arrogant at times, I lack the hubris to presume to tell others what they should or should not believe.
