Thank you for once again providing example of why your reasoning is substandard.
Kindly explain how in retrospect hanging black men from trees is evil, but labeling homosexuality as a disease is not.
note the word "explain". Bible babbling is not considered a reasonable use of intelligence.
Slaves running from their masters was ince considered a mental illness, isnt it all just a farce?

1) RATIONALIST: Why do you believe in God?

1) BELIEVER: My religious book says so.

2) RATIONALIST: How do you know your God exists?

2) BELIEVER: My religious book says so.

3) RATIONALIST: Why do you take a day off each week to pray to your God?

3) BELIEVER: My religious book says so.

4) RATIONALIST: Why do you say the universe has been created from nothing?

4) BELIEVER: My religious book says so.

ROFL.

So what and whom do you trust?
Multiple sources is the way to go IMHO.
What say you?
It's not about what or whom you trust, but about the method to use.

Multiple, indipendent and unrelated sources saying the same thing is a good point.

Sometimes you can read many articles say something on a matter but almost all give different results. Then, IMO you should look at the one who made the affermation and gave something to support it, i.e. evidence(s).

Beliver: I don't give a fetid dingo's kidney if you do or do not believe in G-d. Why is it so important to YOU that I don't believe?

Rationalist: Because, I'm so insecure in my opinion that I don't feel comfortable unless everyone around me believes the same. Group-Think makes me feel less vulnerable in my opinions.

rabbee: because here are we actually again, in always TheTorah. i know this is true, because G-D did actually come and tell me about the woman thingy again. and this is the near end of the sixth day of G-D, again in always TheTorah.

and i saw G-D even before i saw, TheBook about us all here in IT again. so i can confirm, the actual accuracy and precision of being here in TheTorah again. even if you all deny, your grandmother and grandfather all here in IT again.

and it is not G-D, that is making the mistakes here in TheTorah. but it is all of you, making the same old mistake of not being here in IT again. as foolishly, you are all making the same genocidal mistakes, and naturally expecting different than diluvium results.

there is only about sixty years left, before G-D departs again for the day of rest. may you all make your peace, with G-D here in TheTorah before then.

I know Jews are not usually guilty of this, but in my day to day experiences, it is usually the believer(typically the prostylitizing type) that exhibits the issues that you are projecting onto the strawman rationalist. I suspect that, like you, most atheists (barring the few activist types) just want to be left alone and not preached to. Wouldn't you agree?

rabbee: well we are not really as interested, in your religious studies as you are. you could spend 24/7, and we would not mind. contrary to your, the popular belief. we are more than capable of getting along, religiously without you.

I am sorry you will have to be more specific as to what "all" is.(I am not naturally tuned in to the same frequencies as you.)

Happy Full Moon!

I am not convinced that this is the most burning of issues. Most of the vocal atheists I know (here in the U.S.) appear to responding to the provocations of the Christian right.

I just read an article discussing how North Carolina state legislature last year outlawed the use of scientific models by the State to measure sea level change. With denial like that, do you actually blame atheists or other people from pushing back?
