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.

Yeah, our peddos rarely make it out. Good.

<quoted text>Very interesting thanks.

I always thought Easter came from the Babylonian goddess Ishtar aka Inanna. The eggs and bunnies are symbols of fertility.

Inanna was both fertile and a protector of children.

Apparently, she was quite frisky like a bunny as well.

1. Dear Leader isn't going to like being called Scotty.

2. How pathetic is your life that you crave the alleged destruction of Earth and the majority of its inhabitants so that you can be whisked to some imaginary place to wash the feet of a Semitic hippie for eternity? Funny thing about eternity. 500 billion years and you're not even halfway through.

You clowns haven't really ever thought this through.

Another deflection. How and why? Imaginary Heaven is allegedly without sin and the Satan character had direct, observational knowledge of the Jesus and Yeahnoway characters.

No, not like all of us did.
My oldest son is nearly 18 and he hasn't done any of the irresponsible things I did. Hell, he hasn't even kissed yet. I've got him more interested in his education rather than getting his dick wet.
My dad raised me wrong, he never discussed the birds and the bees with me, never warned me about pregnancy, never taught me shit about women. When my son was born, I swore to him that I'd do better.
So far, so good.

given the treatment from his father, he is unlikely to tell the truth about any of his encounters.
Most likely a Liar, just like good ole dad
but --- if it is true that he is 18 and still "a virgin" then the probability is that he has a sexual identity issue.
Or he is as ugly and vile as his father. That's effective birth control.

My Dear father was an Atheist. Hard core Atheist nearly all of his adult life. He was always trying to convert me to Atheism. When he was diagnosed with stage 4 lung cancer he remained an Atheist.
Until he had a life changing event six months before he died. I wonít go into the details other than he left Atheism and had the proof he needed.
Itís like treasure hunting in a way. If you never go treasure hunting you will never find treasure. Some professional treasure hunters go years without a find but they keep searching. Until that one day they find a sunken 18th century ship laden with gold & silver.
Most Atheist want someone to bring them proof. If you never go on the hunt you never reap the bounty,
What was this treasure. Paradise ?

A "Kingdom of God" as a physical place like our current Universe, but where everything is "Unified with God", and nothing ever suffers.

This idea is of course very familiar to Jehovas Witnesses, Seventh Day Adventists and various other extremist Christian groups.

It is also completely and utterly illogical.

Any person capable of the most basic critical thinking should be able to see very easily that such an idea of a physical paradise where there is no suffering is a completely illogical concept.

Even if one accepts the mystical doctrine that "all is one", I still do not understand how it can work.

I would like to know how it is physically possible for a world with no suffering to exist. And I would specifically like to know whether carnivores would continue to eat herbivores, and how both could exist in a world with no suffering.

I am not interested in talking about metaphysics or fantasy-physics or any bald assertions about God.

I am interested in the logical consistency of claims about paradise.

I wonder whether 'the faithful ' have thought critically about the paradise they claim to offer, or whether all of their argumentation about physics and metaphysics leads to nowhere but a concept of paradise which is fundamentally illogical and impossible to begin with.

Infinite nothingness is the perfect description of the lead character in your immoral book of deception and idiocy. That's how a deceptive idiot like you is developed over there in Berks County, a place with so e of the highest per capita mental illness in the country. You blend.

It is different, how do you logically conclude that different = impossible?

Weren't some of the earliest Tanakh manuscripts found written in Greek?
Yes.
While the majority of Dead Sea Scrolls were written in Hebrew, the collection also includes many Aramaic and Greek texts, as well as some Arabic texts and a small number of Latin fragments.

Earliest Christian manuscripts were written in Greek and Egyptian.

Are you aware of a way to interpret the phrase "Congress shall make no law" to mean "teacher may not lead a prayer"?....
In public schools, the teacher is State employee.

States have Congresses.

A teacher leading prayer is establishing religion.

<quoted text>Good luck with your plans. I think the difference between the UK and the US is that "the powers that be" recognised that public opposition to same sex marriage had evaporated and just got on with the job of making things equal ASAP. We were able to pull forward the effective date by 3 months because the other side just stopped fighting it.
The indoctrination of society has been quite amazing, you don't even recognise your own indoctrination...

That's your second straw man in a row. Children should be taught how to think critically and not be indoctrinated into something to which they are threatened and can not question. Period. There is plenty of time to introduce your immoral Dear Leader.
