    Why I am atheist....

    According to the Bible, there will be a war in heaven, and Satan is cast out then, with 1/3 of the angels. That's in Revelation, which hasn't happened yet, presumably. According to the Bible, Satan presently dwells in the heavenly realm. The Bible teaches that he does have access to God...

    Why I am atheist....

    We don't know that at all. And no religion has as it's criteria for entering heaven the mere belief that one does not "reject God." Christianity, for example, requires acceptance of Jesus Christ and a belief in a generic God is not sufficient, and most denominations require more than just...

    That is correct. However, just because we exist does not mean we have a "purpose," either. And, existing without knowing one's purpose is the same as not having a purpose.

    Why I am atheist....

    That's nice. But since any claim to know the mind of God, assuming a God exists, is an arbitrary claim. The idea of him making us so "eventually" we can join him in heaven assumes that God experiences time in the way we do and that he is in some way limited by temporal concepts. Couldn't god...

    Why I am atheist....

    Sure, so where do we go when we die, again? Sheol? Hell? Do we go to Sheol first, hang out there until judgment day, and then get thrown into the Lake of Fire? Is that torment? You know, technically, reading the Bible in order of the books, Satan isn't even in Sheol or Hell - he's in heaven...

    So, the parts of the Bible that describe it as sheol - the death or the grave - and not as a place of unquenchable fire - are..... wrong?

    Why I am atheist....

    I don't know. People get scared. They don't want to "go to hell" or anything. Who would? The trouble arises when one tries to figure out who goes there and who doesn't. A lot of people in these discussions say "well, I believe in God, just in case" - kind of a Pascal's Wager type of deal. I...

    Why I am atheist....

    Sure, that could be what it is. That's one interpretation. Agreed it's symbolic. We have no idea what a lake of fire is. So, after all that, what is "hell" again? Is it just that old testament place for the dead - shadowy locale, not of torment but of just a place of spirits apart from God...

    Supreme Court clears way for House to get Trump’s taxes

    It doesn't show the details, though. Sure, and an emolument is a payment or title or something like that from a foreign STATE, not from a foreign company giving a loan. So is everything you say about Trump. However, we have emails regarding the business deal, and the testimony of one of the...

    Your favorite 21st century U.S. President

    One more than you listed. George HW Bush would have been added, and that takes us back past November, 1992. To get to 40 years ago, we'd add Reagan, and then for 50 years ago, we'd add Carter, Ford and Nixon.

    Exactly. Is it death? Is it a pit? What pit? What's the pit like? So, what is the correct understanding?

    Supreme Court clears way for House to get Trump’s taxes

    A tax return won't show "loans." Also, if Congress were worried about "income from foreign powers" they don't need to prove Trump was gaining such income to make a law about it. Congresspeople getting "income from foreign" sources is not uncommon. They can stop it today, if they want to...

    Why I am atheist....

    If there actually is a "biblical Hell" we still do not know what it is because the descriptions of hell in the Bible vary. Is hell the "Lake of Fire" referred to in the Book of Revelation to John? Is hell the Gehenna of the Old Testament, which was more like just a world of the dead where...
