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.

Why not just admit that you have no evidence of god and are talking lies?
First, God wasn't the issue.

Second, if evidence is really your standard, why didn't you answer my challenge for the issue?

The only thing you 'admit' is that you are a ignorant, bigoted,'rational atheist' oxymoron punk getting his ass kicked by a near senile old jackass.

The bottom line?

The complexity of diverse gender unions, the complimentary nature of diverse gender sex and the birth of the combined DNA of that union are vastly distinct from a ss couple.

Ss marriage is an epic oxymoron and there is not one damn thing you can do about it.

I'm looking all around Dusty, even at your marrage, and all I see are inferior mutually sterile, pointlessly duplicate gender halves of marriage. Clearly not equal!

The only thing I see is that God damned ss marrage.

Smile.

Meanwhile, back on topic...

Has anyone ever explained this alleged 'faith' that atheists are supposed to have?

Anyone?

Innumerable times. The belief in the words and observations of others who say they have the facts and correct interpretations, and the belief they have put it all together in their own heads properly. They poo poo everything but what they perceive as "the Truth".

Insufficient attention to information and detsils. Going off half cocked. Like the post you just made.

Pay attention.

Vaya con dios - slave of dogma, I have better things to do.
Of course you do, have better things to do. You donít want to know what you have to look forward too. You may not believe in heaven or hell but you better believe in misery. Because misery is all you have facing you in your future.

Would you like me to elaborate? The people that work in these long term facilities make minimum wage. They could care less if you have a dry diaper or have drool all over your shirt. It doesnít bother them you went two weeks without a bath. And they kind of get use to the stench of neglected humanity.

Theyíll really going to appreciate your demands as you try to talk the best you can considering you had that stroke. Theyíll know what your saying. They just wonít care.

The food you will be served will be to die for. It will look, and smell like it came from the sewer. But you will enjoy the bingo games and the thrill of winning fifty dollars in quarters every once in a while. Only to find the next day all of it missing from your room. The employees will count that as their monthly bonus for not taking care of you.

Oh yes Sir you have so much as an Agnostic to look forward too. Especially the young people that will walk by you in the hall and not even acknowledge that your even human. You wonít have a soul that cares if you live or die in squalor. Thatís your future to look forward too. And you have a lot to look forward too. The religion of hopelessness magnified in agnosticism.

Look its another religious essay with no evidence of god in it!
Eaglet has nothing of value to share via any reply.
He/she has revealed in a reply, that he/she has a psychopathic personality.

The greater the feeling of inferiority that has been experienced by the Eaglet... the more powerful is the urge to conquest and the emotional agitation leads to the narcissism we see in his/her posts.

Eventually, sheer frustration to present a lucid reply descends to juvenile patter which is very evident in the post.

I dismiss these posters when this occurs...

Like their bible, they are ozone layer dogma fanatics with a literally hopeless agenda of vainly attempting to promote their mythology as fact.

Attacks on God?
Denials of the existence of God used as a weapon?
Spare us your petty victimization.
If God really was attacked; I'd be confident to let God defend itself.
To the contrary spare me your textbook dodges and denials.
The very name you post under is nothing more than your sophomoric attempt to achieve just that goal. My post merely pointed that out.The only victim here is honesty as evidenced by your rather lame attempt at categorizing my post as claiming victimhood. Sometimes its necessary to be more than a one trick pony if you want to remain relevant.

You know why Iím talking about this?

I have been to a long term care facility and looked into the eyes of an Atheist. There was no light, no hope in those eyes. And this man had been a strong capable independent man his whole life. Suddenly helplessness overcame him as Atheism left him without any hope.

That Atheist was my father. We removed him from that facility. I took a leave of absence from my job. And my Sister and I cared for our Dad in his home until he died. Not one Atheist came to see him as he struggled with life & death.

You see Atheist and Agnostics donít care for their own. They leave their wounded on the battlefield. They only care about themselves. We took care of our Atheist father. Our sweet dear and precious Father realized that there was hope. And light came back into his soul. As he on his own free will abandoned the hopelessness of Atheism and embraced the God of all Gods.

I had never in my entire life heard my Atheist Father say a prayer until that day he abandoned hopelessness. I wonít go into the details of his conversion. But I will just say this, it was him and God. I didnít convince him to convert to Christ because I was forbidden to talk about God to him.

Religion was forbidden in his house or around him. He was a hard nosed dedicated Atheist. His conversion was just between him and God. And in the end light overcame the darkness.

When you donít have God you donít have anything.

And if emptiness is what you want then thatís what youíll get. Oh sure unbelief is portrayed as being wonderful while you are young and strong.

But what happens when your weak and frail. Despondency is all you will have to look forward too.

Atheism & Agnosticism the self centered religion of hopelessness.

Heh heh.

Your intellect has comedic value. If nothing else.

I know you won't grasp this, either, but just for laughs. One more time.

Atheists have to have faith in their mental abilities, or supposed abilities of those that "enlightened" them.

The difference between thinking you know something, and "knowing". The "knowing" is never more than a guess.

Encore, please.

Was Robin Williams an Atheist?

He wasnít really known for any religious belief that we in the general public are aware of.

I guess I would classify him as being non-religious.

How tragic his final moments were. All he could see is what his unbelief had given him, hopelessness.

Had he had hope he could have lived out his life encouraging others as he traveled on his final path. But Robin didnít make it cause he took his own life leaving behind family and friends.

You see hopelessness gives nothing and takes everything.
