I noticed your video on “prove it” and I find it, as well as most of your content laughable.

First of all, “Prove that God doesn’t exist”? Prove me that the Flying Spaghetti Monster or that the Invisible Pink Unicorn doesn’t exist and I’ll use your method. The Abrahamic god has no function he must perform, since we know that, for example, evaporation and condensation creates the rain, and not God opening up a window in the heavens, as it says in your book.
And you consider the theory of evolution laughable (even though gravity is a theory with just as much fact and evidence to back it up, whereas the only reason you believe in creationism is because of the Bible), and yet, you believe, in the face of overwhelming evidence, that a bearded man in a bathrobe took a handful of filth and tossed it at the ground to make a man? And next you believe that he ripped out a rib and turned it into a woman? If I were a thinking person, I’d take the theory of evolution over this obviously impossible belief that man was “intelligently designed”. As well, what if there’s another race on another planet that worships a volcano god, who they think created them in his image? Would you be persuaded by that?

Furthermore, I have a problem with the reliability of the holey book (pun fully intended) itself, because of its over 320 pesky contradictions, and there are sure to be plenty more.
The science in the Bible is awful, and its history even more so. The Bible states it took the Jews 40 years to travel from Egypt to Canaan. Problem? That was, even in those days, a ten DAY trip. Furthermore, the Bible says that the Earth is flat, has four corners and rests on pillars. Also, according to the holey book, bats are birds, children with foreskin are damned to hell, as are anyone who wears polyester (because it CLEARLY says in the holey book that you can’t mix fabrics), anyone who doesn't believe in his invisible ass despite there being no evidence whatsoever for his existence, etc.
It contains parables where God orders genocide, and yet, supposedly put rule six (don’t kill) on a stone tablet. The Inquisition, the Crusades, the massacre of Native Americans, the Teutonic Knights, witch burnings, the Holocaust, boy-raping and condom-hating- Apparently, your god approves those incidents.

And my last issue with religion is this: The rule of the church is over, and people will not tolerate someone forcing their religion on them. You, as a religious fundamentalist, must realize that the “God Hates Fags” tactics will not work with a modern separation of church and state. Ou may look like Santa Claus, but I’m going to give YOU a Christmas present- A few thinking, working brain cells.
I intended to send this to a certain MegaSage007, and later a certain shockofgod, but they have enabled contact lock and cannot send them this if they haven't added me as a contact. I therefore say all Christian fundamentalists who read this- Try and soundly refute it. Give me a good laugh.

While I agree with some of what you have to say, and am no longer a christian, the technique of this paper is not very effective. If your wish was to convince someone their beliefs are wrong, that is, and not just insult them back.
"The Inquisition, the Crusades, the massacre of Native Americans, the Teutonic Knights, witch burnings, the Holocaust, boy-raping and condom-hating- Apparently, your god approves those incidents."
Many christians do denounce these actions and find their commission deplorable. And many philosophically interpret those actions as "god allowing them to happen (they think nothing can happen unless god allows it)" but not "approving" those actions (this does sound a bit silly to me, but the fact is (most?/probably 99.99% of) christians do not support those actions).
You will be hard pressed to find contemporary christians who agrees with things like witch hunts anymore, and the majority of the christians in the Blue States of the US support same-sex marriage and LGBT rights (this may surprise christians, and unfortunate LGBT individuals who have to live in the Red States, but it is true) and most churches in the Blue States accept members of the LGBT community in their congregations, and some of us are even christians because of it.

As for the Holocaust; many of the perpetrators of the Holocaust were Atheists, many were Odinists, and many Nazis were also Protestants; it is impossible to simply blame the Holocaust as an act perpetrated by christians, or atheists, or whatever.

There were also a few misconceptions.
"The Bible states it took the Jews 40 years to travel from Egypt to Canaan. Problem? That was, even in those days, a ten DAY trip."
Meh, I know you probably don't want a sunday school lesson, and nor do I want to give one, as I am not a christian lol, but it took them 40 years because god was punishing them by making them walk around in circles after they started worshipping idols or something.

As for the flat earth; it is true that the Bible says the earth is flat (the word translated into English is "circle", which is a flat shape), but I do not think it specifically counts the number of pillars (it does mention them though), and it never mentions corners if I remember right.

Overall, this is not that poorly written, but does have some typos.
"Ou may look like Santa Claus, but I’m going to give YOU a Christmas present- A few thinking, working brain cells."
"You may look like Santa Claus, but I'm going to give YOU a Christmas Present-- a few thinking, working brain cells".

If you really wanted to attack the religion, there are many biblical verses you could have used WAY more effectively than these. For example, in Numbers 31 Moses says that god told him to kill the women and children, but spare the women who "hath known a man by lying with him" (the implication of course being that the other women are going to be (sex) slaves for the Israelites).

These were really not the best points to bring up for a theological/moral debate about christianity. It is an okay start I guess, and your conclusion was nice, but it definitely needs work.
What do you think?

I Christian Fundamentalists actually believe the stuff above, then they fail at either reading the Bible, Understanding the Bible, or possibly both.

Yes yes so true I agree as a person who goes to church to keep the family happy (which seems hypocritical I know but be nice) I never bought into the stuff as i got older. I'm also a person who has no real problems with LGBT rights either. My stand point is if they're happy then that's fine there should have never been an issue where you'd take the rights away from a group of individuals because your ancient book says you shouldn't agree with their sexual preference.

I abhor creationism because they try to infiltrate out minds with "HERP A DERP IT"S A SCIENCE!" no it's not. Creationism is what happens when a group of fundamentalist try to contiune the USELESS rivalry with Evolution (which I completely believe in because it's provable). Some people tell me to believe in the bible because they say that god does exist. Well walking the earth thousands of years ago were multiple Messiahs who could heal the sick, raise the dead, make the blind see, etc. I say go back and read the entire book and look at how....freaking bizzare some of these stories are in hindsight.

Thanks for the feedback! Yes, I hate fundamentalism because it keeps an entire nation back and this results in horrific stagnation- As well as minorities such as LGBT's and foreigners getting backed into a corner.

So true so true I wish they'd cut the crap and realize that we live in a modern society that is no longer overrun by religions. I have no faith in humanity but It warms my heart to see that "Mans" society is at least trying to be tolerate of others opinions and differences.

Yeah sorry if I'm wasting your time. Behind politics and video game controversy, this is one of the subjects that "Rustles my jimmies."
