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.

OMG!

Really!

I bet they saved the foreskins first.

And if thy foot offend thee, cut it off: it is better for thee to enter halt into life, than having two feet to be cast into hell, into the fire that never shall be quenched: Where their worm dieth not, and the fire is not quenched..--Mark 9:45-46

There is no text more barbaric than the Old Testament of the Bible--books like Deuteronomy and Leviticus and Exodus. The Quran pales in comparison.

Allah Akbar

It does you even more perverse

God orders Abraham to kill Isaac as a burnt offering. Abraham shows his love for God by his willingness to murder his son. But finally, just before Isaac's throat is slit, God provides a goat to kill instead. 22:2-13 ? Well God set the first example)!

Abraham shows his willingness to kill his son for God. Only an evil God would ask a father to do that; only a bad father would be willing to do it. 22:10.(What intelligent decision)

"Because thou hast done this thing, and hast not withheld thy son, thine only son."
Why did God love Abraham so much? Because he was willing to murder his son for him.(Greater evil hath no man than this, that he is willing to kill his own son for God.) 22:16 (because he was both heterosexual and homosexual)

Dinah, the daughter of Jacob, is "defiled" by a man who seems to love her dearly. Her brothers trick all of the men of the town and kill them (after first having them all circumcised), and then take their wives and children captive. 34:1-31 (fair is fair logic?

"The terror of God was upon the cities that were round about them." 35:5
(no one can fear imaginary)

"And Er, Judah's firstborn, was wicked in the sight of the Lord; and the Lord slew him." What did Er do to elicit God's wrath? The Bible doesn't say. Maybe he picked up some sticks on Saturday. 38:7

After God killed Er, Judah tells Onan to "go in unto they brother's wife." But "Onan knew that the seed should not be his; and ... when he went in unto his brother's wife ... he spilled it on the ground.... And the thing which he did displeased the Lord; wherefore he slew him also." This lovely Bible story is seldom read in Sunday School, but it is the basis of many Christian doctrines, including the condemnation of both masturbation and birth control. 38:8-10

If I pray to God he kills people whose wives I want. is that okay!?

After Judah pays Tamar for her services, he is told that she "played the harlot" and "is with child by whoredom." When Judah hears this, he says, "Bring her forth, and let her be burnt." 38:24

Head cheese sandwiches for everyone?
Or tasty bacon/human bits for seasoning.

Joseph interprets the baker's dream. He says that the pharaoh will cut off the baker's head, and hang his headless body on a tree for the birds to eat. 40:19

God brought a seven year, "very grievous" famine on the whole earth for no apparent reason (except maybe to make Joseph wealthy). 41:25-32, 54

I'm still looking for a church marquee that ever advertises any of these verses for bible school..

I'm noting what the Bible says.

If you have issue with it, take it up with the Author.

Genesis 6:5-7 (NASB)
5 Then the LORD saw that the wickedness of man was great on the earth, and that every intent of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually.
6 The LORD was sorry that He had made man on the earth, and He was grieved in His heart.
7 The LORD said, "I will blot out man whom I have created from the face of the land, from man to animals to creeping things and to birds of the sky; for I am sorry that I have made them."

Leviticus 18:21-25 (NASB)
21 ~'You shall not give any of your offspring to offer them to Molech, nor shall you profane the name of your God; I am the LORD.
22 ~'You shall not lie with a male as one lies with a female; it is an abomination.
23 ~'Also you shall not have intercourse with any animal to be defiled with it, nor shall any woman stand before an animal to mate with it; it is a perversion.
24 'Do not defile yourselves by any of these things; for by all these the nations which I am casting out before you have become defiled.
25 ~'For the land has become defiled, therefore I have brought its punishment upon it, so the land has spewed out its inhabitants.

Now note verse 3:

Leviticus 18:3 (NASB)
3 ~'You shall not do what is done in the land of Egypt where you lived, nor are you to do what is done in the land of Canaan where I am bringing you; you shall not walk in their statutes.

They had not just committed these abominations, they had enacted 'statutes' or laws legalizing them. Just what we have done.

It seems like you donít give a hoot about me.
Is it really important you need cream for your coffee?
The snow thatís fallen is quite deep. Canít you see?
Why canít you do like me and drink your coffee black?
Itís cold enough out there to give me a heart attack.
We are going through a whopper of a cold spell.
Not only is it cold, itís also windy as hell.
I take one step outside, and I will instantly freeze.
Besides, black coffee has far fewer calories.

Bible Passages no Christian wants to talk about or discuss. I wonder why.
Does anyone have any ID why these delightful verses are never discussed in Sunday school?
EX 20:26 "Neither shalt thou go up by steps unto mine altar, that thy nakedness be not discovered thereon."
LE 15:16-19 (KJV) "And if any man's seed of copulation go out from him, then he shall wash all his flesh in water, and be unclean until the even. And every garment, and every skin, whereon is the seed of copulation, shall be washed with water, and be unclean until the even. The woman also with whom man shall lie with seed of copulation, they shall both bathe themselves in water, and be unclean until the even. And if a woman have an issue, and her issue in her flesh be blood, she shall be put apart seven days: and whosoever toucheth her shall be unclean ...."
LE 21:20, 22:24 (References to testicles, or "stones" in the KJV.)
NU 31:17-18 "... all the young girls who have not known man by lying with him, keep alive for yourselves." (Note: How did they determine which girls were virgins, and what did they do with them after they kept them alive for themselves? This is not a pretty picture.)
NU 31:31-40 32,000 virgins are taken by the Israelites as booty of which thirty-two are set aside as a tribute for the Lord.
DT 21:10-14 With the Lord's approval, the Israelites are allowed to kidnap "beautiful women" from the enemy camp to be their trial wives. If, after having sexual relations, a man has "no delight" in his wife, he can simply let her go.
Ain't christianity fun?
Actually it's laughable and disgusting
EX 20:26 Iím not sure why modesty would even come up in this forum. In order to understand this scripture you would have to understand the apparel used by the Priest. No one in that day got any enjoyment of seeing the two half moons of a Priest and other dangling things if you get my drift.

Leviticus 15:16-19 You donít believe in hygiene? You donít freaking bath or shower dude? Wash your bed linens? Thatís what the scripture is talking about.
You should at least bath once a year even if you are an Atheist.

Leviticus 21 is talking offering the best to God and nothing less. Did you know the US military has a standard. Every potential service member has to pass a physical. The government wonít take anyone and everyone. Most companies want people in good physical condition to work for them. Take the local TV stations for example. How many news reporters have you seen that are disfigured? TV stations hire people that are easy on the eyes. You don't seem to be bothered by that now are you.

NU 31:17-18

In this reference you are making assumptions that these girls captured would be molested. Nowhere does it say that or even elude to that. Because their life was sparred doesnít mean they were rapped or perverted in some manner.

I seriously doubt they did gynecological examinations at the battlefield as which you are trying to elude too. The most likely identified their pureness by apparel and dress.

All these points have been argued here multiple times. Itís all old stuff from Atheist web sites. You are portraying yourself as if you went and dug this information from the bible. No, itís copy and paste. You are even too ashamed to leave the source of the Atheist site. You are a clone. This is all plagiarized material you have and itís old.

What's funny is you don't even know what the heck you're posting. Are you telling us Atheist don't freaking bath? Wash their clothes?

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.

G.O.P. chief Reince Priebus ripped President Obama on Sunday for consuming three meals a day while on vacation in Marthaís Vineyard.

ďWith international crises boiling over in Iraq, Syria, and Ukraine, itís unconscionable that the President is having breakfast, lunch, and dinner,Ē he said.

The White House defended the Presidentís eating habits, noting that his predecessor, George W. Bush, frequently supplemented his three meals a day with an afternoon snack, but Priebus was unmoved by this argument.ďIt sends a very dangerous message to our enemies to see President Obama eating,Ē he said.
