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.

So true.. the religious fail miserably as they have no evidence, but tons of zeitgeist.

I enjoy the rants of those who believe in these superstitions because they are unintentionally funny, and entirely too obtuse to understand.

"Properly read, the Bible is the most potent force for atheism ever conceived."
~Isaac Asimov

I have asked these two questions repeatedly - no one has ever answered them and the reason is obvious...

Stump a theist!

Ask them WHY they believe in gods, in particular the Christian one.

Consult your clergy, ask this and report back to this forum the answer you received.

Ask your clergy for evidence that proves your God is the one true God in a way that religions other than yours cannot do.

Ask your clergy for evidence that proves your holy book aka The Bible is true in a way that religions other than yours cannot do with their alleged Holy Book(s).

You post as if you have experience. I disagree in that you have no clue on where, what or why "Hell" exists - if it does.

Please provide your link that substantiates your claim that "Hell is horrible".
- claiming such nonsense to cause reaction and fear is not really helping others overcome personal difficulty.

Please be specific with your citation, and be sure to include the person you are quoting.

Thanks!

Who taught you this?

"If any man come to me, and HATE not his father, and mother, and wife, and children, and brethren, and sisters, yea, and his own life also, he cannot be my disciple".--Luke 14:26

You realize that your god is actually a sadistic cretin who enjoys peeping on people in hell, it really pisses Satan off. That's because God won't let him look at the 72 virgins in paradise.

Thank you for sharing your mythology...

I have a question for Atheist.
When someone close to you such as a family member or close friend dies suddenly why bother grieving?
Do you grieve when your grass is cut?
If you are an Atheist thereís no difference between cut grass and the loss of a loved one. Both are cut down in the prime of their life. Both have no afterlife according to Atheist.
In order for people to grieve they must have loved. And love is a religious term and experience. Atheist experience natural selection and natural lust but not love because they donít believe in love.
If youíre a family member of an Atheist or married to one. Itís nice to know that you arenít loved and never were loved. If you suddenly and unexpectedly die itís also uplifting to know that youíre no more than a blade of grass that has been cut down to wither away.
Atheist canít love and Atheist canít grieve unless of course theyíre really not Atheist.
Your comment?
This has to be the most stupid reply on Topix. You must live on a different planet from the rest of us. Why do you Christians grieve, since you think the dead are moving on to be with god? Shouldn't you be celebrating? Shouldn't you just commit suicide so you can be with them and god?

As an atheist, I grieve because I will never see my loved one again. And don't you dare insult another human by saying they are no more than grass clippings. Love did not begin with Christians. Love is universal on this planet no matter your religion or lack of one.

You are just the most ignorant out of bunch.

US film and stage actress Lauren Bacall has died at the age of 89.

Her Hollywood career spanned seven decades, with a memorable debut aged 19 opposite her future husband, Humphrey Bogart, in To Have and Have Not.

More than 50 years later, The Mirror Has Two Faces earned her a Golden Globe Award and an Academy Award nomination.

Born in Brooklyn, New York, in 1924, she went on to become one of cinema's biggest stars, best known for her husky voice and smouldering looks.

A Twitter account of the Bogart estate, run by Bacall's son, tweeted: "With deep sorrow, yet with great gratitude for her amazing life, we confirm the passing of Lauren Bacall."

She reportedly died after suffering a major stroke at home in New York.

Bacall was awarded an honorary Oscar in 2009 in recognition of "her central place in the golden age of motion pictures".

Circumcision is a medical procedure, not genital mutilation.
Get a grip.
Circumcision is a procedure performed on the male genital area, it has very little medial use except in the case of Paraphimosis, Balanitis, UTI, STI and cancer. Its religious or cultural usage has nothing to do with any of these conditions. It mainly remains a religious or cultural procedure so are you saying all Hebrews and Muslims suffer from infection at birth?

You are in need of some more homeschooling.

P.S. you also need to consider it from the religion point of view Ė If your god the creator did not want men to have foreskins why did he arrange that every male was born with a foreskin?

Wrong. There are quite a few Roman historians that wrote about Jesus.
Were they in the Bible, Chrissy?
There is one passage in Antiquities of the Jews, a work by Josephus that is shown to be a forgery.

Tacitus referred to the execution of a person, named christus sometime around 80 or 90 years after the execution Ė wow

Pliny (about 100 years after jesus) said that the christ cult of Hebrews met once a week to sing to Christ, they also stated that they should never do wicked deeds or to lie. What happened?

After that we are getting into 200/300 years after events.

There are far more references to Tiberius Iulius Abdes Pantera/Panthera/Pandera (spellings change from hand written copy to hand written copy) being mentioned as the father of the prophet Yeshu ben Pantera (you know him as jesus) in the Tanakh and in roman military texts, I have even seen his gravestone.

Father of jesus?... documented accounts of jesus father from multiple sources (including the Tanakh from which your OT was selectively cloned) as a roman soldier of Greek descent who raped a Hebrew women named Mary (who in turn cried god dunit to escape stoning) and then was transferred to Germany as punishment.... But I thought you guys claim jesus was the son of your god?
