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.

And you still can’t explain this UN building and hospitals and schools and children targeted by Israel
You are a liar.

Israel did not target children.

Hamas targeted the children by using them as human shields.

Your support for jihadist terrorism is consistent.

The only shoe to drop is you accusing the jihadists of being Christians.

Atheism is not non-belief.
Atheism is belief - that no god exists. It is no less a belief than theism.
Atheism, from the Greek a-theos ("no-god"), is the philosophical position that God doesn't exist. It is distinguished from agnosticism, the argument that it is impossible to know whether God exists or not (Academic American Encyclopedia).
Atheism, system of thought developed around the denial of God's existence. Atheism, so defined, first appeared during the Enlightenment, the age of reason (Random House Encyclopedia).
Atheism is the doctrine that there is no God.(Oxford Companion to Philosophy).
Atheism (Greek, a-[private prefix]+ theos, god) is the view that there is no divine being, no God (Dictionary of Philosophy, Thomas Mautner, Editor).
Atheism is the belief that God doesn't exist (The World Book Encyclopedia).
Atheism, commonly speaking, is the denial of God. Theism (from the Greek theos, God) is belief in or conceptualization of God, atheism is the rejection of such belief or conceptualization.In the ancient world atheism was rarely a clearly formulated position (Encyclopedia Americana).
Atheism, the critique and denial of metaphysical beliefs in God or spiritual beings. Atheism is to be distinguished from agnosticism, which leaves open whether there is a god or not, professing to find the question unanswerable, for the atheist, the non-existence of god is a certainty (The New Encyclopedia Britannia).
According to the most usual definition, an atheist is a person who maintains that there is no god…(rejects eccentric definitions of the word)(The Encyclopedia of Philosophy).
Atheism is the doctrine that God does not exist, that belief in the existence of God is a false belief. The word God here refers to a divine being regarded as the independent creator of the world, a being superlatively powerful, wise and good (Encyclopedia of Religion).
Atheism (Greek and Roman): Atheism is a dogmatic creed, consisting in the denial of every kind of supernatural power. Atheism has not often been seriously maintained at any period of civilized thought (Encyclopedia of Religion and Ethics-Vol II).
Atheism denies the existence of deity (Funk and Wagnall's New Encyclopedia-Vol I).
Judging by your cretinous, ill informed posts about Israel, along with your idiotic insistence that Atheism as understood in contemporary terms still adheres to some ancient description, it's fairly clear that you'd rather live in fairy tale land with your imaginary friends. Maybe one day they'll tell you about how Palestine was invaded by the Israelis, right after they give up listening to your insane bullsh1t.

Dearly beloved Topix atheists. Exercise your one brain cell and realize how all of these nistakes are because if guessing games, and how such errors really, really have a snowball effect on the universal scale.

You really shouldn't take the current theories, and thus your cosmological beliefs based upon them as the gospel truth.

BTW, you will see that word "exciting" again. It is in just about every science announcement made. It is part of the rope a dope and reel them in methodology of gaining adherents and funding. If you can't dazzle with brilliance, baffle with bullshit and make them think they understand it.

The United Nations granted Israel land it now has and nation status in 1948 in what is now the country of Israel.

72% of the voting nations approved this measure with 28% opposing it back in 1948

This has been 66 years ago. It’s now history and Israel is not going anywhere.

Palestinians could have gained a lot of favor with Israel and the entire world if they would have embraced peace for the last 66 years.

Most of the worlds population is younger than 66 years old. It’s time for those opposing Israel to accept the fact that Israel is here to stay. We can not undo what has been done.

We have a cliché we use in the United States,“being a sore loser.” It’s time the sore losers accept the fact they will not be able to change history unless they use the key. And that key is peace. Without peace and acceptance of Israel there will be no changes going forward.

The United States and most of the free world will defend Israel to the death. Palestinians will continue to suffer until they release themselves from terrorism and hoodlum mentality.

We all want to see Palestinians to prosper along with the people Israel. It’s never going to happen with terrorism driving Palestinians.

"and most of the free world will defend Israel to the death...." BDS etc count the EU out and support for Israel in this war was less than in the past in the USA.

I believe Israel declared itself an independent nation in violation of that UN action. They broke the contract. Do some research on it.

After understated reception at the airport, Pope Francis met Pres. Park and spoke of the need that “special concern be shown for the poor”
Pope Francis did not disappoint expectations. From the moment he arrived in South Korea, the pope acted according to his teaching that he is called to look after the vulnerable and the needy.
The pope left the Vatican in Rome and spent eleven long hours in the air, disembarking from a passenger plane operated by Italian airline Alitalia at 10:16 am on the morning of Aug. 14.
From the moment he appeared, he exuded modesty and humility. The pope did not want unnecessarily formalities, and in keeping with his wishes, his reception was a simple affair. After stepping off the plane, the pope came toward us on a red carpet that reminded one of the tear-stained eyes of the vulnerable people who need his touch.
“It is my hope that your visit to Korea will bring comfort and consolation to the Korean people and will sweep away the division and conflict on the Korean peninsula, ushering in a new age of peace and reconciliation,” President Park Geun-hye told the pope. He responded by thanking her and promising to keep her sentiments deep in his heart.
"One Galileo in two thousand years is enough."
~Pope Pius XII

Today a young man on acid realized that all matter is merely energy condensed to a slow vibration, that we are all one consciousness
experiencing itself subjectively, there is no such thing as death, life is only a dream, and we are the imagination of ourselves. Here's Tom with the Weather...
