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.

1. Is worshiped
2. Open a book, Italy circa 1920-1944
3. Again... Open a book. Google His dad's book
4. Jim Jones was an atheist carrying the Bible and preaching ? you're a lunatic.
5. The only frauds are theists
6. Juvenile you should know better
7. Stalin...
The religion and political views of Joseph Stalin. Stalin was raised devout in the Greek Orthodox Church. His parents hoped he would become a priest. He became a religion-suppressing atheist instead.
Theists hold up Communism and Nazism, along with the regime of the Cambodian tyrant Pol Pot, as evidence of murderous “atheist” tyrannies that have caused the deaths of tens of millions. While it may be true that Communism portrayed itself as “godless,” it did not wage war in the name of atheism, nor were its founders and leaders raised as atheists. They were, in fact, preponderantly Jewish and Christian. Communist Manifesto writer Karl Marx was born a Jew, the grandson of two rabbis, and was converted to Christianity at age 6. Leon Trotsky, whose real name was Lev Bronstein, was born and raised a Jew but later declared himself “an internationalist.”
Josef Stalin’s “very religious” mother named him after St. Joseph, and wanted him to become a priest. Stalin himself supposedly claimed that his father had been a priest, and he was purportedly “damaged by violence” while being “raised in a poor priest-ridden household.”
As a youth, Stalin spent five years in a Greek Orthodox seminary, after which he purportedly renounced his religion. In his later years, Stalin apparently embraced Christianity once more.
As Stalin biographer Edvard Radinsky remarks,“During his mysterious retreat [of June 1941] the ex-seminarist had decided to involve the aid of the God he had rejected.” Radinsky likewise chronicles a number of religious comrades in Stalin’s immediate circle. It is evident that, whether for good or bad, religion played a significant role in Stalin’s life.
"It is evident that, whether for good or bad, religion played a significant role in Stalin’s life."

And so did Atheism.

Jim Jones was an Atheist. Good luck rewriting history because it says something different than what you are claiming.

There are no true Bible experts because no one can interpret it. I took the time to read it - that was enough.
In order to understand any given mythology , you first study what it's about.
Everyone knows what Christianity is about...
Some believe it others don't... if I don't.

“Religion is an insult to human dignity. With or without it, you'd have good people doing good things and evil people doing bad things, but for good people to do bad things, it takes religion.”~Steven Weinberg (physicist and Nobel Laureate)
“Religion is an insult to human dignity." ???

Shouldn't you tell that to all the kids religious charities feed every month? Then tell them you don't have anything to give them because Atheism doesn't believe in giving to the humanities.

The message of hope would be posted. The message of hopelessness wouldn't. And hopelessness is what Atheism is all about.

I believe that "I am so sorry" are great words of comfort. For empathy or sympathy religion is not needed. Your heart is what says who you are. Peace.
That might work if you were stepping on their foot or if you took the last slice of pie that was meant for them.

In a 1976 phone conversation with John Maher, Jones alternately stated that he was an agnostic and an atheist.

PULLEEZZE...

You believe in a book that has talking animals, wizards, witches, demons, sticks turning into snakes, food falling from the sky, people walking on water, and all sorts of magical, absurd and primitive stories, and you say that we are the ones that need this religion? Wow, simply wow!

What do you expect or hope to accomplish on the behalf of your faith?

Are you here to criticize people who refuse to believe the nonsense you hold so dear?

If the Prodigal Son's a parable, and if Adam and Eve are metaphors, then maybe thy God is just figure of speech.

If the answers to prayer are merely what God wills all along, then why pray? No need!

The next time believers tell you that 'separation of church and state' does not appear in our founding document, tell them to stop using the word 'trinity.'

The word 'trinity' appears nowhere in the bible. Neither does Rapture, or Second Coming, or Original Sin.

If they are still unfazed (or unphrased) by this, then add Omniscience, Omnipresence, Supernatural, Transcendence, Afterlife, Deity, Divinity, Theology, Monotheism, Missionary, Immaculate Conception, Christmas, Christianity, Evangelical, Fundamentalist, Methodist, Catholic, Pope, Cardinal, Catechism, Purgatory, Penance, Transubstantiation, Excommunication, Dogma, Chastity, Unpardonable Sin, Infallibility, Inerrancy, Incarnation, Epiphany, Sermon, Eucharist, the Lord's Prayer, Good Friday, Doubting Thomas, Advent, Sunday School, Dead Sea, Golden Rule, Moral, Morality, Ethics, Patriotism, Education, Atheism, Apostasy, Conservative (Liberal is in), Capital Punishment, Monogamy, Abortion, Pornography, Homosexual, Lesbian, Fairness, Logic, Republic, Democracy, Capitalism, Funeral, Decalogue, or Bible.

Nice fantasy you have there

Try frying hamburgers in bacon grease on a open griddle. Very good!

Fat American breakfast:

Stack of flapjacks, soaked in maple syrup
Coffee, two refills
OJ
Three eggs
Hash brown potatoes
Tomato
Steak, Ham sausage or bacon or all 4.
Cheesecake, topped with whip cream and cherries
And... A large diet soda

America is so fat that if the 'porkers' started running they'd leave a trail of potholes in their wake.

I am curious how Jeff Dahmer and Alfred Kinsey fall into your "leader" category and how you do not consider Jim Jones a christian? Just because Jimbo led his followers to drink the kool-aid did not make him an atheist - he considered himself a christian, a son of "god" type christian.
Damn, that is one of the stupidest claims I've ever heard.

Seriously.
