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.

.. you enjoy trying to hurt people, don't you ??..
I just find in revealing that someone who has consistently looked to bring trouble in my direction over things like how one responds, to being more intelligent and a better writer than me, and my stream of consciousness seems to be someone who is very insecure in those areas herself.

I didn't say boo to you when I started posted in here again and you went right on the attack and lied to a staggering degree to do so, trying to claim I physically threatened you. So the victim act doesn't wash

And maybe instead of trying sooo hard to portray yourself as superior intellectually where I have shown you plagiarizing a half dozen times you should just be yourself? You know I didn't go into that post thinking "hey I should check to see if she wrote this". I read it and it was so obvious you hadn't that I decided to look. Too much putting on fronts and airs for an anonymous chat room. So silly

Nope, they were pharaohs, their own gods. Your Dear Leader interfered with their Dear Leader. There is no distinction.

I stood in line for the original Star Wars AND Star Trek movies.
I crossed the line lol.
I miss the days of both the classics and 'cult favorites'. The Marvel movies have been a nice touch to pump some blood into an industry that seems to be running out of ideas and still can't top movies from 40 years ago. In one way its cool they have stood the test of time but wish there were more great movies to keep adding to the list. Very few in recent years

So what if Stalin thinks Jesus existed, you do too.
You just admitted it, you think He was an anarchist, murderer and terrorist.
Does that make you a theist? Does that make you a Christian?
Why are you attempting to compare me to Stalin?

I did not study for the priesthood

I did not open 25000 churches

I did not re-instate the church institutions

But Stalin did.

That's because they don't do any scientific research. They take articles or papers on other true scientists and sit and think and write what they think is wrong with the ideas and principles in the work. That is all they do. Rewrite with a religious slant, all honest scientists body of work. They do NO work. Just tear down. And then say they are scientific.
Scientific my foot. You cant make a discovery when you do no work.
So I agree, a complete FAIL
Exactly.

Yeah, just what I thought. No one jot, one tittle, one iota of an example where ID has led to scientific discovery or improved our lives. And, you already admitted it wasn't falsifiable. Fail.

I know that psychology is the scientific study of the human mind and it's functions, it isn't just about emotions.
And I don't need wiki to verify that.
The point being, emotions can be studied. We know quite alot about them and how they operate. Not everything, certainly, but a great deal.

And back to the original point: you seem to get hung up on the idea that anything which cannot be directly observed with your eyes therefore cannot be empirically studied, and that's not the case at all. So the comparison between supernatural claims and things like emotions isn't a legitimate one.

According to the myth, which you cowardly won't admit to following, Dear Leader in the sky drowned an entire planet. Hell, you clowns even make kid's toys, because, after all, genocide is wonderful, warm, and cuddly.

18.3 million percent worse. Hahaha. I wonder which smells worse, when you talk out of your mouth or out of your ass. Hey, convict, your farts mush just woosh after all the stretching you got by all those big joints in the joint

<quoted text> And what is your explanation as to why your spontaneous beliefs are irrational and magical?
When I was a little kid I was afraid of the dark, and thought there were monsters under the bed or hiding in the closet. I had no proof that there were of course, because there weren't any. But I earnestly believed there were. I was projecting my fear of the unknown. Ghosts and spirits are the same thing. People make up stories about things and they sometimes develop into larger myths and legends. It's just magical thinking, part of our psychological make-up. My guess would be that humans developed a propensity for magical thinking as a survival technique. A slightly paranoid person who thinks there might be predators lurking in the dark will take extra precautions to protect themselves, and will survive longer than someone with a more careless attitude. Now of course that propensity has outgrown it's usefulness.

So says creation com and other apologist sites, no evidence of course but since when has evidence had anything to do with religious lies are anything that buck want to believe?

So lets take your god, the book of god says he murdered the entire living population of the entire world minus about 18 million animals and a small handful of close human buddies.

99.9999999999999999999% of the population of the world, that my dear is going to take some beating even by the most determined despot.

It is estimated that 809 million people have died in religious wars throughout the ages. The conflicts include crusades, inter religious conflict, religious sects conflicts etc.

That too is going to take some beating, true, not all christian atrocities but hey, when your child has just been murdered in the name of god who’s taking a poll?
