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.

What you believe is irrelevant and of course your comment makes this obvious. I am not here to think how you want me to think but how I want to think. Just because the facts as can be clearly seen throughout history and in many cases documented do not tally with your sensibilities is not my problem however you really should not invent make believe about other people just so you can feel better about yourself.
What gives you the right to claim that I hate religion, I really have no feeling either way, I do however hate liars (including lairs for their god) and morons who make BS up because they have no comprehension of how the other person sees things but of course a guess is better than actually taking note of fact in the eyes of a godbot – No?
Wrong, you may be challenged as a believer in your godbook, that in no way means that it has any effect whatsoever to someone who has no belief in your godbook or you god belief. To me such a statement is tantamount to challenging the tooth fairy or goblins or little green men or other such childish myths.

I really don’t think you have a grasp on the situation, when anyone goes on a killing spree then someone gets killed. But I suppose it’s ok for you to excuse a christian who does not shout praise jesus but if someone shouts praise allah then it’s all wrong.

And you also seem to be saying that christian bombs don’y kill people as much as muslim bombs, perhaps it’s shouting praise allah that make them more deadly?

History - ever heard of it, History? Or how about facts – but perhaps you have evidence to show that Galileo , Queen Elizabeth (I assume 1st but 2nd too) and Churchill were not christian.

I really would be interested to see these facts, like I would be interested to see the fact thgat you7 god exists, despite the fact that for 4000 years no one has been able to provide any such proof.

Or perhaps you are juts beating you gums because that’s what gets you off sexually?

Of course I know it, probably far better than you. Since the time of Henry the VIII so that must make it ok for them to indiscriminately murder and kill women innocent children centuries later in your book? Fair enough, just so long as we understand each other.

Actually, no, not me and mine because at the same time my family was Scottish and persecute in exactly the same way, funny how there is now Scottish republican army goi8ng around killing innocent women and children eh?

Ahh you have been reading the please American sensibilities books as opposed to real history books. Do you really have so little education? May I suggest you do a bit of real book learning may help.

It is far to in-depth to go into in 4000 words, so tough on that one but needless to say. Once Stalin had removed the corruption (look it up) from the Russian church and consolidated his power (look it up) he began rebuilding the church and its institutions,(look it up)

<quoted text>Look if Christianity was fake ..at least one of the Apostles would have recanted ...and, show the authorities were Jesus's body was hidden ..none ever did .
..( also , I admire you honesty ..but, do you have a photo of yourself where you are just a wee bit younger ...the one in your image profile makes you look kinda old .)...
What makes you say that? How do you know what anyone 2000 years ago would do? You make crap up about me and I live today and I have never met a godbot who will recant anything even if proven to be a liar.

Christianity is not fake, it exists as is apparent by people like you, however the story upon which it is based is baseless, without evidence and there is quite of lot of contradictory evidence despite the attempt of christianity to destroy it. The inclusion of the apostles in the babble did not happen until about 350 years after the death of claimed christ, please advise how dead people can recant anything?

And the photo, much better than a grey cut-out but in actuality it is there for a good reason, it’s what so many godbots deny, a transitional fossil.

Just the same as any other colour – it’s changing and maintaining the new colour that’s the problem. Of course you always get the dickheads like KiMare who think it’s funny or racist or some other such shIte who drip into stereotypes because they have nothing better to say but you get used to it and treat them as the numpty bigots they are.

"Numpty" lol.

Yeah that's work for my hair, the maintaining. It grows faster when it's blonde for some reason. Haha. I've had mine blue and fluorescent pink as well. Pink attracts numpty type attention. Frikken pelics.

it seems that you're unable to connect the dots, Rosa:

EVERYONE has 20/20 hindsight so we're all appalled by the holocaust against the Jews.

the lesson to take away from the past nazi fascism, is NOT to duplicate it in other places nor against other people groups:-)

I suppose that statement could hold some truth and has probably been argued to death on here so I won't add to that part.
Here is the thing about religion....
When I die, how I lived here will no longer matter UNLESS there is an afterlife, or heaven and hell. So which risk am going to take while I am here in this life? Do what I want, sin and deny God, and take my chances there is no afterlife?
I ready live my life more or less as a moral person obeying the basic principles of the Bible.
I don't go to Church very often, usually when I visit my folks. I rarely pray. I couldn't tell you the last time I read the bible.
So what is wrong with believing in a higher power? I already live my life in a manner in which I believe will get me into heaven if t does exist. So, when I die and it turns out the Atheists were right I won't know it and will have no regrets about how I lived here on earth. But if it turns out the Christians were right I will have eternity in hell to discuss with al the other Atheist about how wrong we were.
So in the end I will take my chances and believe that God does exist, that heaven and hell are real, that the Bible is his word, and I will live my life accordingly. If that bothers you Atheists then get over it!! I am not trying to convert you and I don't care what you choose to believe. The God I believe in gave us free will as does our Constitution to believe in whatever we want to, or not believe in. Leave me alone and I will do the same to you in return.
just a sincere question and i don't mean any harm:

would you still be patriotic to your country even if the antichrist was its leader and forming its laws?

i'm just asking because the germans were fiercely patriotic and that's why its leader was able to become so very fascist and still have the masses behind him:-)
