• ### Why do street preachers like protest at gay parade?

Best answer: Well the group in that video are real life trolls. They want to stir up trouble, to make people angry so that they can then say, "Look how angry these people are". That may not be true of all preachers at gay parades, but it is clear from the video that it is of them.

• ### Does it even make sense to disprove something?

Best answer: Yes, it does make sense. You can disprove a false proposition as long as it is a testable one. It is quite easy to disprove that the square on the hypotenuse of a right angled triangle is equal to half the squares on the other two sides, for example, or that there is not a perfectly ordinary elephant in my house.

It is quite easy to disprove that the square on the hypotenuse of a right angled triangle is equal to half the squares on the other two sides, for example, or that there is not a perfectly ordinary elephant in my house. It may even be possible to disprove a specific god, if that god has some testable properties. However you are right about a generic god, which is too vague to have such properties, and theists are very reluctant to state any testable properties of the gods they believe in.

• ### Does the atheist lack of belief stem from their lack of understanding about God's nature, rather than lack of evidence as they claim?

Best answer: I don't think I have much trouble understanding God's nature. It is exactly the nature of what one would expect of an invented god, even down to reflecting the prejudices of those who believe in it.

• ### Atheists, are you happy that Pope Benedict XVII died?

Best answer: You mean, Pope Francis died, a new pope was elected, he chose the name Benedict and he also died all before the news had time to report any of this? Or did you just mean Benedict XVI? His death does not appear to be in the news yet, either.

• ### Were the Angles & Saxons already converted to Christianity when came to Britain?

After the collapse of the Roman Empire (c 400CE), the Anglo-Saxon invasion took place (c 410-560), bringing paganism back to most of Britain, though what is now Wales, and probably some other parts, remained Christian. Later St Augustine of Canterbury brought Christianity back to the rest of Britain (c 590-660). There was actually a bit of a dispute between the Celtic and Roman Churches about when Easter should be celebrated, as they had developed different customs.

• ### Doesn't the Bible tell Christians not to lie? Why do they tell so many lies about atheists?

Best answer: It is only a lie if they know it is not true. Sadly, I think that in many cases, they genuinely believe the moronic things they say about atheists. I know it is hard to believe, and I may be wrong, but it does seem like it.
