Atheism requires as much faith as religion? bearvspuma : The only problem with this rationalization is that ita s assuming all athiests are so because theya re intelligent in the ways of science and reasoning and all people that believe in a form of god are unintelligent.

Actually, the word used in the oldest Greek texts of the gospels means "unmarried girl", not virgin.

<quoted text>I think I'll jump in here, I can help myself from responding to nonsense.
First off I don't believe in "nothingness" I don't even know what "nothingness" is, do you? I have numerous things I believe in and for everyone one of them I have supporting evidence, can you say the same?
Can you define "nothingness?" or are you just talking out of your ass?
In order for you to believe a virgin was impregnated without physical contact with male, or by any other natural means, as in artificial insemination, you are required to believe in magic. Saying we have nothing to compare it to is simply a bold faced lie, we have REALITY to compare it to, the naturalistic realm. When using reality as a comparison, we have no examples of a female becoming pregnant without sexual contact or artificial means, as a matter of fact medical science will tell you no such event has ever been documented throughout medical history.
You may claim this event happened, but once again, you MUST use magic, Godmagic as a cause. I stopped believing in magic a long tie ago, you seem to still hold on the childish idea that magic is real, why is that? Religious poisoning? I think that is the only answer, so, GROW UP will ya!!!!!
Magic is based on trickery and or the occult.

I donít believe in magic but I do believe in miracles since I have actually witnessed miracles.

In that case we have the bibull to blame for all single moms in the world
BTW Virgin meant unmarried girl.

yes, yes, i'm quite sure you think you witnessed a miracle, however all indications are that there are no such things as miracles. There has NEVER EVER been a confirmed miracle, otherwise any true miracle would have been front page news world-wide, it would be al over the media. Just think about it, finally the evidence that your God actually exists, every Atheist on the face of the planet would have to eat crow, Religion and the existence of God would be put in a very bright and fulfilling light of truth.

A message from God emblazoned across the face of the moon, leaving indisputable evidence for his existence........A real miracle.

In an instant, every case of childhood cancer on the planet disappears.......A real miracle.

The sudden realization by every person on the planet that we are along in the cosmos, and love and compassion are things to be nurtured and cherished..........The most beautiful of all miracles.

But this is what we get instead:

The face of Jesus on a peanut-butter sandwich.

Someone finding a lost wedding ring after praying for it.

An unexplained illness disappearing (Called self-healing, plenty of documented cases)

Jesus is said to have cured a blind man, how about the poor blind sap just down the road, why not just cure blindness?

With NO documented reliable account of a miracle occurring, all reason and logic point to miracles amounting to nothing more that a delusion, or an event were alternate explanation become possible.

Except the unknown author of "Matthew" attributes the prophesy to Jeremiah.
You'd think that if you were going to spin a yarn about prophesies being fulfilled, you'd get the prophet right.
Your assumptions are wrong. Read Mathew 27:9 more carefully. Notice the word ďspoken.Ē

ďThen was fulfilled that which was spoken by Jeremy the prophetĒ

Since this prophecy was a spoken prophecy carried down through the years verbally. How can you prove it wasnít verbalized by Jeremiah?

If you are going to claim a yarn was spun. You should at least have spun yarn for proof.

So in the case of the Virgin Mary, all of the laws of nature were suspended? Don't you find it a bit curious that she never mentioned the experience to anyone?

You have a story told in an ancient book about an event that medical science says is basically impossible, there is no explanation other than the term immaculate conception, a purely religious term, meaning virtually nothing. And this you believe, simply because of a story in your holy book, no evidence, just a story. Yet you refuse to believe in something for which there are mountains of scientific data, physical evidence, a process that can be witnessed, and for which the most reliable of all sources, DNA point to the irrefutable facts of evolution. Sigh..........such is the poison that religion brings to mankind!!!

There's so much that we share

It's a small world after all

It's a small, small world
There is just one moon
And one golden sun
And a smile means
Friendship to every one
Though the mountains divide
And the oceans are wide

You must member this the person who thinks:-

1. Noah's flood was real.
2. Seven people half of whom were related to each other repopulated the world without using insect because in those days there was no law against incest.
3. The best part of 1 million people wandered though a desert for 40 years and carried all their rubbish (including their dead).

Thinking is not one of his fortes.

Correct, it's a small world for people who believe without evidence, and shun reliable demonstrable evidence. It's a SMALL world filled with mythical beings and magical places, were the laws of nature mean nothing, it's a very small world compared to the world that actually exists, were everything is real and can be explained, were there are limitless possibilities thanks to science. Yes you are correct, you live in a very small shallow world.

Thinking is not one of his fortes.
Nor is reason, logic and the most vital trait of all, skepticism.

He believes all of this without question, yet rejects scientific evidence that confirms the facts of evolution. A poisoned mind for certain.
