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.

According to Harris, raping the pooch is moral, if it helps humanity to flourish.
His definition of humanity is a starkly mad, brief one.

No, you are wrong. Something does not come out of nothing, not in the quantum "world", not in any world.
Again, you pop off without a effing clue of what you're talking about.
Before you make such statements, you should talk to someone with experience in math or science.
I would help you myself, but I have no patience for assholes.
Says the guy that thinks talking to himself is talking to a physicist!

Buck, you couldn't even say "quantum fluctuation" let alone know what it means.

So your standard for being a good secular humanist is "being no worse than Pat Robertson"?
That's quite a recommendation.
Did I say that?

No.

Another of Buck's style of argument...put words in your opponent's mouth.

This is a variation on the straw man. Create a straw man and beat it up rather than address the real point.

BTW...I notice you ignored COMPLETELY the part where I say that "he has said some things I greatly disagree with".

But then, we have come to expect things like that from you.

Nice rebuttal.
Notice the spacing.
Yep, and accurately representative of most of the sad bastads on here. But, then again, that may be the universal atheist greeting...gofkyermuthr. He's probably done quite a bit of joyful, rigorous mthrfkg himself.

So "Harris is evil" By definition evil means "profoundly immoral, or malevolent. Wickedness and depravity. How does Harris fit any one of these definitions? Is it simply because you disagree with him, or do you have some concrete information that points to any of these traits?

You have any scientific evidence to support that? Because if you don't then you won't accept it, right?
Of course I do, there are polls that support that fact, there are devices that can verify if a person is telling the truth or not, and in the end logic and reason point to the fact that lying about ones belief is totally pointless, unless the person is under duress. Your welcome!!!

Since the supernatural does not exists it would be kind of difficult to disprove it. In the end the burden of proof is on the person that claims the supernatural exists. Would you like to give it a shot skippy? I can wait.

Ah, but the group I was pointing at was not doing those things.
The story I related was in response to a statement along the lines, "Christians do wonderful things for others and atheists don't." I believe RR said atheists don't have soup kitchens for example.
And I didn't say that all Christians fail to help others.
And even you point to the "buying a ticket to heaven" attitude that many have. In the story I mentioned, the Christians may have thought they were scoring points with their God, but they certainly weren't doing anything to help their fellow man.
"even" me? lol

Different Christians have different motivations for charity, some is to drum up new business, the snoopy taxman, others...who knows, maybe the superstitious fear of lightning bolts, but all that is done publicly is done for the eyes of other men, not God.

My main point is that every ideology has good and bad members in them, but all you do is point out the bad ones, even going so far as to call your own mother a godbot. That was shameful. Like "her" belief ever kept you from "being" or thinking any way that you wanted to. Like her ideology kept you from making some great scientific discovery?

I called a scientist and asked him about your Infinite Donut Theory.
I told him the infinite donut guy claims to be a mathematician. And he was joined by a guy (Polymath) who claims to be a physicist.
My scientist friend responded, and I reprinted his response for you here:
__________
Dear Buck,
As you know, from your vast experience and superior intelligence, there are dingbats in every profession. I think you probably played ball with some of them. Didn't one of your teammates shoot himself in the balls while practicing his quick-draw? Anyway, I digress.
No, Buck. I think you know very well there is no such thing in the physical world as infinity, or an infinite quantity, or an infinite measure of anything, or anything that is infinite, or anything that could possibly be infinite - now or ever. No mathematician or physicist, even the dingbats of the profession, would be dumb enough to espouse the "Infinite Donut Theory".
So they are lying to you. They are not a mathematician and a physicist. They might be phys. ed. teachers. Couldn't say. I can say they are idiots. Why don't you just kick their asses?
Your friend,
>>>xxxxxxxx, Ph.D.
I didn't see anything but delusional drivel then. I still don't now

BTW...you might want to check on the spelling of "ad hominem".

He drools at the thought of taking away peoples' will power, handicapping their minds in any way he can conceive, and he conceives of many ways. He's a deviant and a liar, lusting after the lives of those that "he" calls liars. Apparently, he considers his own lies as harmless, unlike those people that he stereotypes. He's an ideology bigot, who cringes at the thought of minds that he can't control, a classic megalomaniac. If anyone deserves a chemical lobotomy it is him; him and those that contribute to his "cause".

Hey don't assign any blame to me.

The highly educated population of these United States of America decided that Obama was definitely better than Sarah Palin and John McCain.

The same brilliant innovative people also decided overwhelmingly that mitt Romney was a very poor choice for president.

I don't vote anymore - there's nothing to vote for - no one to vote for.

The decks already stacked.

Less than 1% control this country. The news media today is in the infotainment - propaganda, business!

Does it really matter which parties in charge or which is more corrupt?

Do you seriously think they represent you?

Keep your money offshore like Mitt Romney.

Hide much income as you can like the wealthy - it's patriotic and very American.

Sighs...

Be careful the NSA is probably monitoring what I type right now and is already investigating you!

Good.

BTW - don't always think that what other people post is "crazy".

As far as I am concerned, you align with "crazy", because you continue to lie to others - repeatedly - about your half-belief in Jesus as if it was complete.
