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.

Sure, I've called you a chicken before.
Chook is an Aussie term, widely used here and occasionally even by me.
Let me know if there are any other simple concepts I can explain to you cry baby chooky.
It's hard to dumb things down as much as you need them so I will keep this short so you don't get confused.

Have you used the word 'chooky' on Topix before that post? Lemme guess, in some other room that nobody's been in right? LOL

You try to copy every poster whose ass you kiss. It's hilarious.

Seen posts links to cartoon pics so you start doing it

LeLe starts making certain claims so you start making the same ones verbatim

Any atheist uses a phrase or word as an insult against Chriatians and you are using the word a minute later

About 90% of your posts minimum are nothing but you chiming in to tell someone "I think what you think" be it against a person they are arguing with or a point they are making or an insult they have made.

That's pretty insecure for someone like 60 on an anonymous Internet site. Your picture should be two over-sized lips for butt smooching on a sheep!

Here ya go lol:

Chook:
An Aussie slang word for chicken that's commonly used as a 'nice insult,' especially when somebody has done or said something really obviously retarded that's only worth laughing about. Similar to that of a 'dag.'

Morgan: I got hit by a bus yesterday
Ted: oh yeah, what happened?
Morgan: I was standing in the middle of a road
Ted: ha, ya bloody chook

-or-

Chook:

A handsome, loving, cuddle extraordinaire who always makes you laugh when you're feeling down. A person who's smart, generous and adorably dorky. Someone who always knows what you're thinking and is always your partner in crime. They're happy to travel with you to the ends of the earth, or just to the end of the couch. They're the 'Mario' to your 'Luigi', the 'cup' to your 'cake' and the love of your life.

Wow. Cry baby chooky doesn't comprehend why an Aussie would only use Aussie slang with another Aussie.

If not for the few coherent Murikans here I would think you all get as easily confuddled.

atheism is the product of the minds of FOOLS

it is impossible for anyone to gaze out upon the universe and not understand that something, somewhere was responsible for it; Unless you are a FOOL

RR can't even understand the English Dialect he was raised in.

RR states that the State of California documents that he has the literacy level of a 12 year old.
Topix documents that his emotional and intellectual level is about the same.

It aint necessarily so wrote:
<quoted text>
Blind faith would be believing that the Genesis creation story is factual because the bible says so. Believing an article in Scientific American is justified. The difference is their track records, which is evidence. Also, the two types of belief are different in their degree. Faith in the bible is not only not justified by evidence (blind), it is absolute. The trust in Scientific American is tentative, supported by reports in other sources, and would disappear if their standards fell.
You probably should stop comparing the two. It never world out well for religious faith.
=========
Notice that another prophecy of science was just confirmed - the second one this decade (the Higgs boson being the first).
When you find something like gravity waves exactly where you expected to find them with devices designed to look precisely where they were predicted by theory to be found, you have evidence that takes you FAR beyond blind faith.
“Think of how many religions attempt to validate themselves with prophecy. Think of how many people rely on these prophecies, however vague, however unfulfilled, to support or prop up their beliefs. Yet has there ever been a religion with the prophetic accuracy and reliability of science?”- Carl Sagan

homosexuality has been the downfall of many civilizations; not because of sexual behavior done in private, but because when it's accepted as appropriate behavior in general, it perverts all common sense & moral decisions in every aspect of life
How does that work? American society has begun accepting gay marriage in the last several years, for example, and I for one haven't had my common or moral senses perverted by it as you predict. Nor do any of my friends or acquaintances seem to be any different either.

In fact, not only is there no evidence of the moral catastrophe you predict in tolerant Americans for being tolerant, I can't imagine how such tolerance could make anybody a worse person - unless their religion incited them to be meaner. Many of the religious seem to be angrier and worse people because of it, but that's it.

And of course, that wouldn't be due to tolerance for a group, but due to the intolerance of the church for that attitude. Is that the deterioraization that you're speaking of - the church getting into a lather over the rest of us trying to honor the Golden Rule?

It's my opinion that this mean spirited hostility is a big turn off for most people not already strongly affiliated with the church and in its sway, and will hasten the diminution of the church, just as its many scandals have. and its frontal attack on science probably has had. You can't very well claim the moral or intellectual high ground with so much baggage.

Why not? Your standards for belief are lower than that.

Science has an uncounted number of successes under its belt. Your bible and church not so much.

It's an amazing coincidence how your god always seems to make the choice that would be the case if there were no god. Whenever and wherever he could manifest in some clear way, he chooses not to. That's a pretty strange strategy for a god that we are told wants to be known, loved, and worshiped by man.
