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.

Contrary to the atheist beliefs, God does exist !
We are living and breathing !
This did not begin with the "Big Bang Theory'!

So you want is all to ignore the technology and the progress and the science that allows you to post the on topix, live past age 30 and fly to another continent and go back to the bronze age and worship the camp fire demon of goat herders because you say so.

Great, now where does the queue end?

I'm often annoyed by the facile content of Radio 4's "Thought for the Day" but today it was really OK. But then it was delivered by a Buddhist.

Bloody monotheistic religions!

Believe in many gods or no gods and you will kill a lot less people...

You can manipulate and pervert the law and words all you want. This reality remains:

Ss couples are vastly inferior to the complexity of diverse gender, sexually complementary, procreative marriage.

And there is not one damn thing you can do about it.

The Bible is by some measures the world’s most popular christian manual. It is also shameless; a grotesque compendium of sensational ridiculous stories, unverified viral memes, anonymously sourced goatherder gossip, thinly veiled sexism, and hypocritical moralizing.
Here is Matthew routinely ignored for centuries and churches constructed. Why?
Gentle reminder...
Matthew 6:6
And when you pray, you shall not be as the hypocrites are: for they love to pray standing in the synagogues and in the corners of the streets, that they may be seen of men.
Truly I say to you, They have their reward. But you, when you pray, enter into your closet, and when you have shut your door, pray to your Father which is in secret; and your Father which sees in secret shall reward you openly.
But when you pray, use not vain repetitions, as the heathen do: for they think that they shall be heard for their much speaking.
It's easier to fail in prayer to god privately than to fail publicly as a group(congregation)
Who knows there could be a closet rehab show on television!
I welcome your opinion for it is an act of freedom to be able to express it openly. I hope you allow me to do the same.

The Bible is a composition of 66 books. 39 in the Old testament and 27 in the New Testament. It is and the most printed book in world history. It remains a best seller.

It has romance, conflicts, history, poetry, patriotism, science, military tactics, love, hate, employment guidelines, ethics, historical facts, art, idols, religion, worship, spies, traitors, scandals, music, songs, hypocrisy, medical procedures and law just to name a few. Offering a past view of cultures thousands of years ago.

And this very popular composition of books is printed in nearly every language in the world including Braille. No surprise that some struggle with its composition and complexity. Good news one can still find in the library many less sophisticated and complex books written more on a third grade reading level. For all those who we can say lack the sophistication and reading comprehension to understand and appreciate the Bible.[tipping hat]

I guess not, most probably you have homed in on the title and gone into raptures because you do not actually understand the concept.
He also wrote “The Case Against Christianity”,“Atheism, Morality, and Meaning”,“The Impossibility of God” and “The Improbability of God”
I wonder are you going to site them as meaningful too?
Red herring.

Not only do you claim dyslexia when it suits you but you also have a problem with the meaning of English (correct spelling) words. I have already had this discussion with buck and provided 2 (T W O) thesaurus links to prove my point. Perhaps you should find and read that post before opening your mouth when some fool can stick there foot in it
Correct spelling matters to you, dose it?

I agree with you on wikipedia as I have often told you when you have cited it and then you objected strongly that it is open to manipulation. Hypocrit.
Yes it is open to manipulation however the references aren’t... They can be added to or removed but they are often academically validated and accurate.
As for the media reports, several contains links to the tea party minutes and documents to which they were referring. Perhaps you should follow those links and read them too.
Nah. You're completely unreliable, I would assume any websites you link to are too.

The closest you ever get to offering evidence is character assassination, insult, inuendo, lying about people, and making things up.

You are a craven and defenseless liar.
