So it's true that if a Jehovah Witness turns atheist he WILL ring your door bell for nothing.

---MR.T on 6/22/12|
an "atheist temple", that's funny. What could they possibly gather together at a temple for? possibly to sit around and talk about "Big Bangs" or their "monkey ancestors"?
---Eloy on 3/9/11|
LOL!!! There is no Atheist Temple what happened was my web Brower froze or I hit the enter Key by mistake and yes there are atheists in Temple Texas. We are trying to organize Do you want to join us? We love apologetics or how about movie night in Temple,maybe Battle La? Hey guess what I now know what Blog page to read and monitor for Central Texas. Yeah bingo! Christ-like replies only?

It sounds like a gathering of fools.

Haden: " Tell me, what gives you the impression that atheists worship nothing?"
Duh...... Maybe it's the name ATHEIST - you know NO GOD!
---jerry6593 on 2/6/11|
alan of uk, amen..Jody, if you can't look at man, the earth and heavens, stars, sun, timing of the orbits around the earth and each other, you can't see in front of your face. So some people want to be an athiest? Just think what will happen if they are wrong. Just think what will happen if we who believe in God are right. I certainly wouldn't take that chance.
---shira3877 on 2/5/11|
You know, these people who are saying "They want to get together and worship nothing?" are really amazing me. Tell me, what gives you the impression that atheists worship nothing? We just don't worship one god, and suddenly, everyone tells us we have to worship "nothing". I worship my mom. I worship my fellow men. I seek the truth in everything, and i try to help this world out, instead of just saying prayers.

Isn't it strange how the negatives are now being granted privileges?
At work places, prayer rooms for Muslims, and the latest thing is "quiet rooms" where atheists can go to reflect. No room though for chapels for Christians.
Christian nurses not allowed to offer prayer for the sick.
Christmas greetings banned.
Smokers are allowed "smoker's breaks" away from their desks for a cigarette. No time off though for the non-smoker to go outside into God's fresh air.
Exclusive clubs for LBGT's but all other clubs have to include them.
Soon to come ... churches breaking the law if they don't employ atheists?
---alan8566_of_uk on 12/27/09|
Atheism is just as much a matter of belief and faith as a religion who believes in God. There is no proof that there is no God so it must be accepted on faith. Agnosticism does not involve religion/faith as those who profess this stance, do not know what to believe.

So have I, it is called public schools!

Hey! I attended an "atheist temple" in Jacksonville, Fl way back in the late 70's early 80's, it was called the Besteside Tavern. While not ALL drunks/druggies are true atheists, they can be BIG FOOLS. (lol) Actually, why have a temple to worship nothing? But, then again, the Athenians on Mars Hill DID have an Idol dedicated to "the unkown god." People have to worship something, they just don't want to worship the true and living God.

Cluny ... Yes you are right! Sorry about that
---alan8566_of_uk on 9/5/09|
the irony of people who declare there is no God or Supreme Divine Creator of ALL must organize themselves into a group
guess they feel left out by other religious groups so they band together in the name of "no god" to denounce God as a membership
although if I didn't believe I wouldn't need a support group to bolster my belief ...makes me wonder if deep down inside they really do question their unbelief seeing as how they must reinforce this unbelief as a group think-tank
maybe it's like a 12 step program or something ...if they fall off the "unbelief wagon" and start believing they can be re-assured from the collective whole

Atheist Temples: Worshiping the fact that you don't worship anything. Ha.
Well, as long as these genuis's are going around in circles in their temples of death they won't be on the highway's where they might make a wrong turn and kill a lamb.
10If thou faint in the day of adversity, thy strength is small.
11If thou forbear to deliver them that are drawn unto death, and those that are ready to be slain,
12If thou sayest, Behold, we knew it not, doth not he that pondereth the heart consider it? and he that keepeth thy soul, doth not he know it? and shall not he render to every man according to his works?

\\ It sounds like a self-contradictory oxymoron, if that's not a hyperbole.\\
The word you're looking for is not "hyperbole" but "tautology."
It just occurred to me that maybe this rumor about an atheist temple in Texas got started because the American Atheist Association began in Texas.
---Cluny on 9/4/09|
Jen, I too am from Texas and just visited there two months ago for a reunion. I met many Christians but I never heard anything like what is mentioned here.
At least not from the people in the Rio Grande Valley.
It seems that most people there are Catholic. The closer to Mexico the more Catholics you find. They know nothing about anyone else. They are a happy people, who drink, go to dances, party all the time, with BBQ and beer and play oldies, confess on Saturday and some times go to church on Sunday. They don't want anything else in their lives. They are happy where they are at.
---MarkV. on 9/4/09|
In defense of Texas-- The groups I mentioned exist someplaces in the US, maybe in Texas, maybe not. All should be prayed for.
---Donna66 on 9/2/09|
I'm a Texan and have not heard of it (it's probably in Austin:) ). But, hey, what's wrong with that?
We have groups that plan on hitching a ride on the next comet to an unknown planet. Some believe God is female and that they are godesses. Some believe nudity should be the lifesyle of true believers. Some are brain-washed zombies who give up all their possessions to belong to their cult.Some believe that being "born again" is achieved by certain sexual acts. (My post will probably be deleted for mentioning it)
The atheists need a place to meet like everybody else.
---Donna66 on 9/2/09|
I agree Alan...
I live in Texas Jen & haven't heard of such. If what you've heard is true, okay! :) Atheist, just like all other citizens, are guaranteed the right by the U.S. Constitution to practice their particular brand of "religion" (the worship of self).
Rather than giving them the stink-eye & verbal beat down, those of us who know the True & Living God of the Bible would do well to pray for their deliverance. Also, if you personally know any atheist, love them like Christ loves the church.
---Leon on 9/2/09|
Sounds like something the devil conjured up to attract athiests. Another cult. Stay away from it.
---anon on 9/2/09|
It sounds like a self-contradictory oxymoron, if that's not a hyperbole.
Fancy a Place of Worship, where you worship the Great Nothing!
But so what?
---alan8566_of_uk on 9/2/09|
Jen....Pardon me if I sound rude. You have a computer. Use it! This question is like going to the library and asking the librarian to tell you about a book that is sitting on the shelf.
---SusieB on 9/1/09|
They have those in most cities, and only the name changes above the door. The bylaws are in Psalms 14:1, 53:1, Proverbs 12:15, 13:16, 16:22, 24:7, Matthew 7:13, etc.
---Glenn on 9/2/09|
So what if there is one?
---Trish9863 on 9/1/09|
No it's the church secretaries desk where "Nothing sacred?" Everyone helps them selves to all of her pencils, paper, glue and all the other supplies she my have for various craft projects for Sunday School and Vacation Bible School classes instead of bringing their own.
---Phil_the_Elder on 9/1/09|
This reminds me of a Gahan Wilson cartoon with the caption, "Is Nothing sacred?"
