you'll even find atheists in prisons.
it's not the title, or the aptitude.
it's more about attitude.
the clothes do not make the man, even a sharp dressed one.
I agree that you may find atheists in prison and that the clothes don't make the person but you bring up Stalin. I bring up Hitler. read Meine Kaumpf. Hitler was not an atheist. For every atheist you can find that has done wrong I can offer you 100 Christians.

I feel most religious people fail to realize that atheists, deists and agnostic people hold a high set or morals, they believe in the same ideal rules as the ten commandments. In stead of"Thou shalt not kill" the atheist might say. People should not kill, people should not rape, people should not steal, etc. The lack of understanding is the fear that we can clearly see here.
We do not sit around criticizing the bible unless confronted by religious people who are trying to force the dogma down our throats. I am not an atheist, rather I choose to be agnostic leaning on the side of a deist. I would ask all Christians to leave us be, we are free to believe what we want to believe. Your prayers for us will not be heard. If you believe in the literal translation of the bible. Once a person questions his or her belief they can never be taken through the pearly gates. So while we appreciate your prayers I fear they fall on deaf ears. Ultimately you are wasting your time.
Most atheist believe in life and the understanding and meaning of it. They believe in physics, and hard evidence. Is there anything wrong with that? Can you chastise man for wanting the facts and basing his life on solid rock. Mathew7:24-27 24"Therefore everyone who hears these words of mine and puts them into practice is like a wise man who built his house on the rock. 25The rain came down, the streams rose, and the winds blew and beat against the house; yet it did not fall, because it had its foundation on the rock. 26 But everyone who hears these words of mine and does not put them into practice is like a foolish man who built his house on sand. 27 The rain came down, the streams rose, and the winds blew and beat against that house, and it fell with a great crash."
If we examine the bible for the message and teachings we can see some good ideas. We can also find repression and oppression. I believe if you take out all the bad, and mystical and replace it with just the teachings you will find the real meaning of the bible and not the dogma presented to control the masses. I would ask all the critics to look at Thomas Jefferson's Bible. He took out all the mystic, supernaturals and superstitious and left only the teachings of Jesus Christ. Or what some may define as the true message of the times.
How does a government control a large variety of religious people and practices? They must bend , twist and and censor. Doing this helps the people to come to a common ground. In a time and place where numerous religions clash there is always a compromise. I also encourage all Christians to watch Zeitgeist(you tube). It is not a sin to know the argument of your enemy, to know the message of your enemy provides you with the knowledge to confront them to challenge them. There is nothing wrong with faith, just the byproduct of faith the occurs in radicals, the radicals are of all religions and non religions.
LOL. Another post that has nothing to do with Hippocrates.
"Hippocrates,(born c. 460 bc , island of Cos, Greece—died c. 375 , Larissa, Thessaly), ancient Greek physician who lived during Greece’s Classical period and is traditionally regarded as the father of medicine. It is difficult to isolate the facts of Hippocrates’ life from the later tales told about him or to assess his medicine accurately in the face of centuries of reverence for him as the ideal physician. About 60 medical writings have survived that bear his name, most of which were not written by him. He has been revered for his ethical standards in medical practice, mainly for the Hippocratic Oath, which, it is suspected, he did not write."

It is known that while Hippocrates was alive, he was admired as a physician and teacher. His younger contemporary Plato referred to him twice. In the Protagoras Plato called Hippocrates “the Asclepiad of Cos” who taught students for fees, and he implied that Hippocrates was as well known as a physician as Polyclitus and Phidias were as sculptors. It is now widely accepted that an “Asclepiad” was not a temple priest or a member of a physicians’ guild but instead was a physician belonging to a family that had produced well-known physicians for generations. Plato’s second reference occurs in the Phaedrus, in which Hippocrates is referred to as a famous Asclepiad who had a philosophical approach to medicine.

Aww, thanks!=)
Meno, a pupil of Aristotle, specifically stated in his history of medicine the views of Hippocrates on the causation of diseases, namely, that undigested residues were produced by unsuitable diet and that these residues excreted vapours, which passed into the body generally and produced diseases. Aristotle said that Hippocrates was called “the Great Physician” but that he was small in stature (Politics).

I am a Christian that goes to church every Sunday. I am just 16 years old and I sin just about every day. Sometimes it seems like god isn't there but all I ask is for you to give him a chance. Trust me. It's worth it.

I'd love to meet other atheists and people that have fallen out of religion. It's so hard to find around here. We should start a forum or something. Or someone send me some information :)

Maybe you should give Allah a chance or Zeus, Thor or Ahura Mazda?

I like how us atheist people get told we are going to an imaginary place of fire. Just because I am not a beliver. Not only do I not belive in the christian god, I do not believe in the muslim god, nor budda, nor thor, I damn sure don't belive in a devil. But here is one thing I am proud of, and that is knowing that I don't have to follow a book to validate to myself that I have morals. I don't need an instruction manual for life. Again, just remember, be kind to one another despite beliefs. Help one another. Helping hands make a larger difference than praying lips.
