    There is no physical evidence that Socrates ever existed all you have are the writtings of others alluding to the teachings of Socrates... exactly the same as Jesus.

    So fucking what!! If someone wants to believe in something then whats the issue? Are you so scared of the fact that people go to church? Are you afraid of what they believe? Or are you just trying to be smug?
    I'm not a christian and don't go to church but so what, railling against wether someone existed or not is just bizzar!! Can you prove the existance of all your ancesters? Of course you can't ergo you must not exist thus I'm talking to a raith.

    I looked up the word raith and the definition I got was a quarter of a year,and of course I've seen Raith Rovers is it? On the football results anyhow I'm not railing and your opinion so what ?Do calm down don't be a smelly sweaty sock.Your unintelligible words about ancestors didn't make sense,we are all here because of our ancestors,that's bleeding obvious,do stop showing your self up.Lucky I'm here so our American friends can see there's intelligent life on this side of the pond. It's not the questioners like me that impose their will on others,and are responsible for oppression ,torture,war and murder.If you read a little history chummy you'll see it's mostly religious powers that are responsible for this,people like me are just expressing our opinions.So do calm down there's a good fellow.

    Nobody knows anything about god,or even if there's a god.The bible is a collection of books,stories,fable and myth ,not proof it's the word of god.

    We have here an example of somebody holding up the bible as the word of god.It's hard to believe that in the twenty first century,in an age of reason and scientific discovery and progress,that we still have people,trying to peddle this nonsense.The bible merely a collection of myths and fantastic tales and I will say some good philosophy and advice.This however those not prove it's the word of god,Aesop's Fables also have wisdom as do the works of Shakespeare.Sadly these god experts have a lot of power and influence in the world.In Britain e.g. We have in the house of lords,amongst other unelected lords,the lords spiritual.A bunch of clergymen that can change Britains laws and destiny,even though nobody voted for them.The worlds full of idiots,that think they are doing God's will,but they no nothing about God,dangerous deluded people,that have to be put in check by those that have rejected religious bunkum.

    So there we have it then,too many idiots that don't know acting like they do know.The snake oil salesmen with their god this and god that,and ha ha god on their side.As I said religions come and go mankind remains,and this is our reality,we are all on this world until we die and that world is as much yours as it is mine.So beware of the god gang and the misery they will lead you to with their ignorant nonsense.

    Sorry Scottie, I was just trying to get the punk to explain himself, or why people like him are so obsessed with trying to convince others of the righteousness of their position. I really don't see the believers in God challenging the atheist to any degree save for when they are taken to court by some inane ass like "Citizen" over crosses in some cemetary, or alongside some road, etc. Then too, my original question had nothing to do with the existence of God, it had to do with why would He bless America when so many who claim to believe in Him refuse to follow Him.
