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.

<quoted text>
The structure and context is the description of how one should pray. Starting with Matthew 6:5 and then, it is cross referenced with the lawd's instruction on prayer, in proverbs.
What's the matter ar ar? Did some profit lie to you? Or are you really as slow as people say?
Then why won't you answer me about Matthew 6:6?

You're perfectly willing to take the words "go to your room, and close the door" as 100% literal.

What about the people with no rooms and no doors? What, no prayer for them? Does that make any sense at all?

And why are you willing to take those words as 100% literal but not "don't be like the hypocrites"?

<quoted text>I know. I'm not trying to pass internal judgment on anyone. You have never seen me write anything like "you are going to hell" or "you will burn in hell".

You haven't seen that from me and you won't see that from me, because I understand that Jesus forbids humans to pass eternal judgment on others.
Any judgement. Not just eternal judgement.

Yet you judge people, on their choices, here. Daily.

You presume to know the mind of your alleged god. Daily.

You attempt to deceive in the name of your alleged god. Daily.

You ignore your alleged god's instructions. Daily.

It's all on record.

But if you want evidence, go back and look at the time span in between the bulk of my posts. You'll notice a big chunk of RR, then a void, then another big chunk, etc.
RR didn't used to have two hour time spans between posts....

I never believed in Santa Claus, so to say I could start believing in Santa Claus "again" would not be possible.
Since you don't believe in Santa Claus, which I assume you're comparing to your lack of belief in God, do you spend an equal amount of time arguing with people about the existence of Santa Claus or the validity of his "list"? Do you argue with people that he doesn't actually check it twice?
Oh, but you have it all wrong, Redneck.

Of course he checks it twice.

As previously stated, you should feel free to never respond to any of my comments.

Answer the question: which Christian sect is the correct one? Don't you know?
<quoted text>
It's the only rational answer when someone's debating strategy is to presume to tell the other person what they are thinking. Sorry, but you aren't in my head and can't argue for me.
<quoted text>
Projection.
Who says one sect can possibly fully know God?

Saying 'nope' is not a reasoned answer. I am in your head.

Nope, not projection.

Even though they've been debunked for a long, long time.
I'd say for shit like that, science doesn't require any evidence, it's just a popularity contest.
You continue to make this error:

Proselytize?
Since when has a Christian Hospital or Research facility proselytized?
Have you ever been to one of these facilities Emergency Rooms? The focus is on medicine and saving people’s life.
And how does feeding and sheltering the homeless become proselytizing?
Christians buying school supplies for kids in foreign countries and even in our own country is proselytizing?
Christians buying shoes for kids proselytizing?
Have you ever been to a Christian funded food bank?
There’s no proselytizing. People in need come and pick up what they need free of charge and leave. No brochures, preaching, just good food for families in need.
Do you realize how many atheists donate to feeding and housing the homeless?
Whats the difference between a Christian funded food bank and any other food bank? I give to the local food bank all the time. Nobody asked me if I am Christian or atheist. So how are you going to keep up with what donations come from atheists? I have donated to the Christian outreach, Salvation army, Goodwill and the local animal shelter.. So you are just full of it.

. I am an atheist.

No, but you atheistfuckers are perfectly fine with a Santa Claus play at a public school, but not a Christmas play.
<quoted text>
You don't speak out against Santa because you like seeing him instead of Jesus at Christmas time. Don't you lie, admit it.
Christmas time, not so much.

A few weeks before Halloween, then all of November, plus all of December, trees at the curb and after-Christmas sales into January, and those damned lights some people leave on their houses the wholefvcking year is kinda overkill, don'tcha think?

Yeah what the hell is going on with retail stores having Christmas stuff out before Halloween? Maybe they're going to be like the people that leave their lights on their eaves all year long and just keep Christmas stuff on the shelf all year long...

There, Siri spelled they're right.
