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.

i don't even know you, Chris, and i suspect that we're continents apart; however could i possibly make a "sexual advance" on you???
are you one of them crazy over the hill women who like to think that everyone still desires them? maybe you can hire a gigolo to help you out with that some time:-)
Written you moron, written, or are you not aware that when you post on topix your text becomes publicly visible.

Are you a gay boy trying to hide your proclivities from your fellow godbots by making sexually desirous comments and innuendo to anyone in a skirt?

chris said - "if a killer goes on the rampage his religion is never mentioned by the press, unless he is a muslim"
ummm.....duuhhh....maybe that's because NO ONE ELSE IS KILLING FOR RELIGION EXCEPT THE MUSLIMS???
over here in america, we're getting shipments of muslims from somolia now because some christians pushed back and finally won some victories against their brutality so they get to come here for religious asylum!
LOL - it just couldn't get much crazier before Jesus comes back to smash it all in bitty pieces!

I already told you, it doesn;t upset me at all.
On the contrary, it amuses me.
If your idea of fun is lashing out at everyone in uncontrolled fits is fun, I find it amusing.
It is not my delicate sensibilities that are being upset, but yours.
You told a lot of things, most don’t make much sense and I really don’t care what you tell me. You tell me that god is real (without evidence) that jesus walked on water (without evidence), that the world was flooded to more than 28,000 feet above current sea levels (without evidence) etc… etc… etc. Honey all worthles lies

As I remember you were the one who began the lashing out, our conversation lasted for one post each before your venom hit, I have a rule, only on chance, just because you blew it is not my problem, wallow in your own vomit.

Yet another bout of deliberate ignorance, how very apt. Because I offer fact that upsets your belief in supermarket hate sheets then you are upsetting my sensibilities – you really are delusional.

Oh yes I do and you are indoctrinated beyond redemption

Christine, have you ever told a Muslim that he is a godbot?
What do they say when you tell them that you are an atheist?
You would do neither if you were living in a Muslim country without being executed for it.
Yes, only this morning in fact (Note it is now 16:45 here)

They wish to discuss my ideas, unlike so many christian godbots who simply close their ears and sing la,la,la,la while denying facts the Muslims I know (and those I have met) are open minded and willing to learn.

Are you really that naïve? Do you actually have no idea of life in a muslim country or are you just reciting what your supermarket hate sheets have told you?

FYI, there are just 15 of around 50 muslim countries that have full sharia law which included execution for blasphemy. Calling someone a godbot is not blasphemy, in any religion and being an atheist is not a crime outside of christianity.

Funnily enough, the majority of that 15 are backed and sponsored by the US, go figure.

I'm sorry the bloke went through that. It's a verbal cage fight @ times on here. I put up with it because there are some people I do like to have a yarn with. Others...need a good kangaroo kick in the guts.
Sometimes I think that if there was a God, the first thing he would say if he came down here to Earth is: "Hey kids! Stop fighting!"

No but they are pretty typical in somewhat one sided examples of the atrocities that are instigated by religious intolerance. Rather like the intolerance of the IRA, NLFT and those good christians the KKK and anti abortionists in the US are guilty of. Funny how you never want to bring up those atrocities.
Nope I am not outraged, as you can tell by my whimsical comment and honey, contrary to your lying mumbo jumbo I take the pIss out of Islam just as much as I do with christianity. However, I consider I do it fairly and am unbiased in that humour, I base my comments of fact, unlike some gopdbots I could name on topix who base there hatred on hearsay and sensationalist press.
You made the statement and I provided a counter and highlighted the fact that you were lying in your ignorance and it also seems using clairvoyance in you hatred. As for why you need to search for muslim outrage, perhaps because the usual sensationalist hate sheets you usually read are too journalistically sh|te to publish it. There is considerable muslim response, quite possible far more than good old american response but, hey, if you want to be blind to facts them feel free to wallow in your own ignorance.
I lie? So tell me who has been fighting in Afganistan for the last 25 or so years? First christian Russians followed by christian westerners? Have you asked if they want help or are you simply imposing that help because you are christian?
Ahh you mean like the only war the mighty US has won on it’s own since the Mexican-American War was against a group of Caribbean island hill farmers in Grenada? You want to big up then get your facts straight. FYI the mujahideen kept the might of russia on the hop and did exactly the same for the NATO forces more recently, you may not like their methods (neither do I) but unless you can claim victory in Afganistan then tough
The sickest religion is all a tough one and the accolade goes jointly to all 3 of the abrahamic religions but on a personal note Muslims have never hurt me or mine, Jews have never hurt me or mine, christians have.
You don’t know anything but you can guess which is why your consider I sold out, because you are guessing at the facts and inserting your own prejudices into my life but hey, you are a godbot and so it’s understandable
Lol, talk about taking blonde 'rational atheist' oxymoron to a new level!!!

Honey, I wasn't talking about ancient history, we are looking at today!

IRA was a political fight 20 years ago

NLFT last exercised violence 13 years ago

KKK was over 50 years ago

anti abortionists have killed less than ten people to protect unborn children over 30 years

You can add all the casualties of these Christian rejects and still not equal ONE act TODAY of Islamic violence IN ONE LOCATION OF MANY!

Oh, here is some interesting info for you, please note the point about atheists...;

http://www.wikiislam.net/wiki/Muslim_Statisti...

As to my source of info, you are right, I did use a 'hate sheet'; Al Jazeera

However, are you denying those situations do not exist? Really?

No one agrees with your defining of 'Christian' wars.

Nor would any rational person agree that the US needed help to kick Allah's ass again and again. Or save one twisted Islamic country after another from Muslim despots.

Oh, I'm a redeemed cynic who remains barbarian.

In your case, I'm on a Crusade.

Smile.

Atheism requires no faith whatsoever. That is one of the biggest misconceptions about atheism. Atheism isn't a belief; it is an absense of belief in a god. What an atheist is saying is, "Well there is no evidence for a god being real, therefore, I have no good reason to believe God is real". They are not asserting that there definitely is no god. They are saying they don't believe in one. And they have good reasons for not believing in one. Atheism requires no faith for this reason; they have evidence, reason, rationality, and logic on their side. All these things point to the fact that there probably isn't a god, so the atheist therefore doesn't believe there is a god.
On the other hand, most believers are saying that God definitely exists, but have not a shred of proof to back it up.
Bob, as far as I know Atheism is definite about the non-existence of any deity. However, the Agnostics are uncertain about the existence of such. Agnostics seek information/ evidence of such existence.

From Wikipedia:
Atheism is, in a broad sense, the rejection of belief in the existence of deities. In a narrower sense, atheism is specifically the position that there are no deities. Most inclusively, atheism is the absence of belief that any deities exist.

Your Wikipedia citation confirms my contribution Thinking. I was just trying to highlight the difference between atheists and agnostics.

So, your reasoning says there is no God because there is suffering?
Is that correct?

Do you have any evidence that the late jc did any such thing. Remember that the babble compiled by committee 350 years after events, edited and bastardised to the extent that it had to be re-compiled in the early 1600s, not from the original but from babbles available at the time is not evidence.

However there is actual contemporary evidence that the guy you call christ was a terrorist and murderer who was crucified for his crimes. Using this (multiply sourced) evidence those people are MORE christian than you.

And since when was it your decision who is christian or who is not? Jeezoos fooking christ on a crutch, you arrogant T\/\/AT

So funny how a good, charitable, christian minded godbots ALWAYS deny the faith of another christian if their actions discredit what they believe christianity is all about.

So tell me, should you, the guy who lusts after and covets another mans wife be considered christian? Funny really there is no commandment aginst terrorism yet there is one about what you consider to be normal christian behaviour
