I'll take a few seconds out of my Halloween party to deal with a few fast answers...

First, off, to Amanda...There is no agreeing to disagree. Because if the christians had their way, they'd run the country and burn atheists and every other "heretic" at the stake for not worshiping their non-existent deities.

Secondly, to Jason,
The mention of Jesus of Nazareth specifically in the works of Josephus were proven to be a forgery over 150 years ago. This is the only document that is not a biblical text to mention Jesus of Nazareth in that exact fashion. Proof that the church will edit documents to add some sort of proof of the truth of their religion. This sort of proof is just as false as your hope in an afterlife. Tacitus and Pliny the Younger, along with Pliny the Elder only mention "christ", "Christos", and "Chrestos" respectively, and these are mere titles which mean "anointed one." These could apply to anyone who was anointed in some way or another.

To everyone else (I will get back to your list of facts there, SK, don't worry.), Christians dismiss 9.999 other religions and their deities due to the idea that they're absurd, or because they think the bible says no other gods exist but theirs (which is definitely not the case). They never stop to think that when you strip away the details, the skeletal outline of beliefs that you're left with is exactly the same thing as every other religion, and is exactly as absurd.

From now on, I suggest that when you respond with an attempt to counter what a verse in the bible says, state which version you're reading from. By the way, the bible isn't open for interpretation. Not with the way you insist that so much of it is literal, then turn around to say that some of it is open to interpretation. Not even close. It's all literal or it's all vague interpretation. There's no middle ground.

John 3:16 is a nice mask for christianity, but saying that it is christianity in a nutshell is bonkers. Christianity can't be put in a nutshell, as it is, like with any other religion, very dogmatic. There's more to it than just believing in a man who never existed.

You claim I'm intolerant but christians and members of most monotheistic religions are the most intolerant people on the planet. Intolerant of other religions, intolerant of people who may have a different sexual orientation, intolerant of "heretics" and "blasphemers."

I don't differentiate. As I've stated before, I'm focusing on christianity here because it's the biggest threat to American freedom and Civil Rights.

Religion is vile, and while you can never truly get rid of religion, you can, through education, diminish its following until the amount of people left practicing it aren't even noticed. Remove the hold that religion has on the world, and you remove one of the biggest dividers of the populace.
