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.

That's odd...I don't feel all alone. I have my friends and my family. I don't feel that my life or how it is unfolding is random, either - I am shaping my life by the choices I make. Odd too that I actually do feel a purpose in my life - to be the best person I can be, to experience joy and happiness, to love and be loved, to leave the world a better place if at all possible, same thing that most people feel.
Huh...I guess you don't actually know what you're talking about.
Do Atheist experience love?

Because love is a religious word and expression. And itís listed 310 times in the KJV Bible. And Atheist have made it clear they donít believe anything in the Bible so that would include the word ďlove.Ē

You have acquaintances, connections, fellow neighbors but friends? See friendship requires some level of love and thereís that religious word again. You know animal packs with alpha males and females. The pecking order and Iím sure you are somewhere near the bottom of this gang.

Family?, no you donít have family you have offspring or broods according to your evolutionary belief. You know survival of the fittest crap you were force feed.

The choices youíve made in your life were based on evolutions natural selection. Purely animalistic, driven by physical appetites or animal like desires. See people are just animals that showed up one day by the masses. They just evolved from worms?

Donít try to read something spiritual in your existence because you are just one in the freaking jungle hanging in the tree by your tail dude competing for food. Remember you are an Atheist that means all this evolutionary mumbo jumbo and nothing religious.

Donít be crossing over into our territory and talking about love and purpose. You are going to confuse yourself.

Are you stupid or something?
Not believing in skyfaries don't mean you don't love your wife, children and life itself.

Do you think an orangutan is sitting on top of a tree staring at the heavens at night is thinking about purpose? Heís a freaking animal just trying to survive.

Only people of faith believe in higher order and purpose. You freaking Atheist need to stick to your party line about evolution and forget about the cosmos because you arenít leaving the earths low orbit.

You are just like that orangutan you are just existing. No direction, no purpose and no hope for a future. Your little broken down rat infested trailer house is all you ever gonna have Bubba. Thatís your heaven on Earth Bubba, itís as best as itís going to get for you.

Not a tour, but I did have a guide, an Amazonian native.

You sound so brave, dude.

Nobody in their right mind goes there without a local guide.

You have adventurers, and you have tourists that think they are adventurers. The latter follow beaten tracks.

You are a tourist.

You carved out an illusory very tiny spot in a vastness and complexity you can't concieve of, and which can come crashing down literally at any moment. You live in a very artificial environment. A house of cards waiting for a breeze.
You need some educating.
I used to be an arrogant and obnoxious Creationist like you, but then I realised that we are all liars who have no evidence of god.

Try asking yourself some hard questions and you'll see your stupidity quickly.

I used to think I was smart when talking about orangutangs, but the truth was that I didn't actually understand science or Evolution.

And things that I don't understand scare me, just like they scare you.

We've never been able to prove our creationist god since time began being measured.

Lets follow our morals and admit that we lied to Atheists, eh? They will respect that.

Atheists would believe Creationists more, if they weren't so extremist in their opinions.

Good answer.

I say that to all the little kids that answer my questions.

I say that because even if the answer is stupid, you are still participating in the question and answer session.

Your answer was stupid but it was still good that you answered. Now we know who needs help and who doesn't.

Thank you for your participation.

Theists have a bond with the universe, and a belief something is in control of it. They are serving some purpose in the greater scheme of things.
An atheist is all alone in random chance and larger forces. There is no ultimate purpose for their existence, or suffering.
Which do you think will crack faster when things really go wrong?
Theists have a bond with the Earth just as atheists do.

Remember when you were 20, Dave? Remember jumping? There was this guy in my high school that could dead leap 38 inches. He could jump from a standing position over 3 feet in the air. Guess where he landed?

You are bound to Earth, Dave by forces much greater than you.

That kid that could jump 38 inches will have less muscle mass later in life and will be hard pressed to get out of his chair.

You can't beat the force, Dave.

Wow! You really have proven that atheists can be good without God.*rolling eyes*
Funny how you chose to ignore the bobnobgobbler sock comment to which I replied, perhaps because like you he claims to be christian (of sorts), he certainly bats for the child abusing catholic priests. And because he makes his claims that all illness is the caused by fooking monkeys than thatís great with you?

Christine shakes her head at the dumb ignorance of some godbots
