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.

Yes and... KJV published in 1611
Sorry buddy but the English language in all its variants goes back much further than that. Other languages, including Sumerian and Latin (the bases for the word love) go back far further than the NT what was compiled in the 300AD and the Tanakh from which you OT is selectively copied.
Do not try making specious claims to big up you self esteem and god book because most human beings are not as stupid as you and can see through your deceit the moment you open your mouth and words come out.

Hot COFFEE HOUSE

H- hide behind, Hot Coffee
O- offer one and sit down
T- talk, with delight found

C- coffee cup from which I sip
O- overture of digestion, very quick
F- feeling better and here I sit
F- forensic negative in a pith
E- easy place for a donuts to dip
E- ergonomic well grained hit

H- here your worries drown
O- only one, now sit down
U- understatement of the year
S- steadily sipping with-in your peers

Please post in the original languages, so we can observe your expertise !
If you can not post in the original language or have knowledge of the limits of translation into modern English will understand.:-)
You need not be defensive .
Again, you questioned the passage, state your case or admit you are full of sh/t.

Are you convicted that an ancient text, the Bible no less, nails modern perverted behavior?

You're an idiot if you think that. Humans are humans all humans are both highly sovial and highly emotional beings. Belief in god has nothing to do with the reality of human emotion.
This is something inescapable and part of our very being. So you look pretty silly saying atheist's don't love. All humans love ,hate and experience the emotions. Or do uou think atheists are some other species? Because the homo sapiens are all the same, whether you like it or not.
Love is a biblical term. Atheist donít believe in the bible so they donít believe in love.

Itís natural selection, environmental pressures, survival of the fittest for you.

That's why I white-sheeted him early on.
You are probably too young to remember playing marbles. But when two kids are playing and one keeps getting beat. The losing kid takes his marbles and leaves the game. This childish white-sheeting as you call it means you have taken your marbles and left the game.

Anytime a non-lawyer like myself can humiliate a top gun like yourself. Well, I take that as a compliment. Your white-sheeting has had no effect. Itís ineffective just as you are. Always a pleasure my good man. You have given me the highest compliment by accepting defeat.

Losing an argument? I really do not give a toss how high you coffee makes you, you asked a question, I answered your question, you repeated your question. Your idiocy is not my problem so get over yourself.

Who, in this context, is "we"? The voices in your head?

15:28 But if she be cleansed of her issue, then she shall number to herself seven days, and after that she shall be clean.
15:29 And on the eighth day she shall take unto her two turtles, or two young pigeons, and bring them unto the priest, to the door of the tabernacle of the congregation.
15:30 And the priest shall offer the one for a sin offering, and the other for a burnt offering; and the priest shall make an atonement for her before the LORD for the issue of her uncleanness.

You simply don't know your animal sacrificing bible.

Sanskrit contains many words that mean "love".
Since Sanskrit predates the OT by 1000 years and the KJV by 3000 years, no. You are wrong.

Scientists tell us that there are many properties our universe displays such that if they were even slightly different from what they are in fact, life, or at least our kind of life, would not be possible.

The universe seems to be fine-tuned for life. For example, if the force of the Big Bang had been different by one part in 10 to the 60th, life of our sort would not have been possible. The same goes for the ratio of the gravitational force to the force driving the expansion of the universe:

If it had been even slightly different, our kind of life would not have been possible. In fact the universe seems to be fine-tuned, not just for life, but for intelligent life. This fine-tuning is vastly more likely given theism than given atheism.

ó Alvin Plantinga, emeritus professor of philosophy at the University of Notre Dame, 2014
