One of my friends does not believe in God, but one day the sewing machine needle got stocked in his finger and he screamed out. “Jesus Christ” We have to take a bad situation and make a laugh. We have to ask him. Why didn’t you call for Rasta? Why in blaze you have to call our Jesus? When people say they do not believe in God. What they are doing: Is posing a challenge. A challenge to God, and to those who say they believe in God. “ Ok! I do not believe in God” So prove to me that God is! They are trying to get a dialog going. The bible said that even Demons believe in God. Therefore, men who say they do not believe in God are only lying to themselves and to others.
Taking a commonly used expletive and trying to convert it into an argument is lame.

There is no God and I use the expletive J C quite a lot. It was the expletive I heard my uncle use when I was a boy and that's all there is to it.

Religion is just organised superstition and always has been.

Dr. James --- Just because the bible says something, doesn't make it true. It also says "god is love" (1 John 4:8), but when you look at the suffering in the world, clearly this is a lie - god, if he/she/it exists - is certainly not love. Better to believe that there is no god at all.

Not really. Maybe a few (such as Richard Dawkins perhaps) are, but most are just simply saying that they do not believe in God...........

One evening in Bethlehem a long time ago, a woman, Mary, gave birth to a baby in a stable, her husband Joseph close by. Just then, a star appeared overhead, heralding the arrival of the Three Kings, Wise Men of the Orient. As they entered the low stable entrance, the first king hit his head on the lintel of the doorway. In pain and shock, he shouted out "Jesus Christ !!"

Joseph looked up and said "That's a great name. We were going to call him Fred !"
