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. Because the newspaper always prints the good news.
While I agree it's a failing-not fallen-world, I see the bulk of the damage and inability to progress to be caused by religion. Not just yours, but practically all of them.
You, and the many people like you, will never learn to accept that yours are not the only beliefs and that your beliefs don't work for everybody.
Look what they've done to you.

i can agree to a point, but i would say that MOST of the damage IS caused by YOUR religion.

the only way to escape the snares of religion intirely, is to be redeemed by Jesus Christ!

The world keeps getting better. The major thing slowing progress is religion.
Fortunately, in much of the world religious wackos like you are not allowed to commit mass atrocities anymore.
You should move to central Africa, you would love it.
i categorically reject your corrupt world-religion and instead submit myself to the Theocratic System of Christ, Kingdom without end - AMEN!

LMAO!

Ben's never heard of Proto-writing.

That does not stop the anthropological zealots from conjecturing what they thought. Many of them did leave a "written" account of certain affairs or happenings. Rock drawings and "art" are quite common from early man.

Is it possible his story about the 5 atheists in a foxhole is true? maybe--but improbable.
Atheists have a daunting hill to climb and a boulder to push up that hill which is almost unbearable.
How would you know,are You atheist?

Atheists can deal with life's problems better and easier then religious people mainly bc we are more honest with ourselves and others

I was once fascinated with an atheistic religion Buddhism. So I follow closely the belief that the physical universe people and animals was just happenstance.
Modern science is making that kind of belief a mockery. So really an atheist today to believe in accidental/random/chance philosophy of this universe and human existence is truly religious. Atheism requires >more< faith than religion. Modern Atheism is a religion.
You're confused misinformed or a Liar

Atheism is NOT a religion and needs NO faith

Do you get the Rufous hummingbirds passing through there?
Amazing how much aggressiveness and fearlessness can be packed in such a tiny package.
I lived in northern New Mexico and we would get swarms of different species passing through. Lots and lots of hummingbirds until their migrations got settled down.
Yes we do.
We get 8-10 species of hummers here every year.

now can we please just agree to disagree about everything and move on from these circular aguments?:-)
I don't use circular arguments.

Now if you are going round and round in your mind, trying to figure them out, I can understand how you would place them in this category.

You shouldn't. You should go and research your belief, instead of believing it is accurate.

I agree to disagree.

Without being able to 'read' them, they tell us nothing. Much like Linear A.

There appears to be a strange similarity in rock art from all around the world, and in changes in it.

I'm taking pre med classes and I'm doing very well in them. I have to apply to medical schools. It won't be a problem. I scored a 2250 on my SAT and I was high :)
MCAT shouldn't be an issue.
I did work in a morgue for awhile but I wasn't allowed to experiment.
;-p
Good for you, the world always need good Medical Doctors.

There's not much inspiring about Ben.

Actually, I don't think there's anything inspiring about him.
