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.

Topix Atheist are not objective. And most canít handle a honest debate. Even with that consideration I enjoy engaging them.
Anytime you pit honesty against untruth the untruth goes awry every time. Theyíre predictable and often revert to personal insults. Because they know their position is false and is propped by deceit.
tru dat!

Interesting the slimer accepts there is a lot of bad stuff in the bible that churches should not promote.

Your devil story is retarded.

If your god was all powerful it would have already defeated the devil in the past.

I appreciate a God who spared nothing, not even His only Son to redeem a corrupted race of people who were initially created in His image to be His own family.
YOU, sir, are choosing to side with His arch nemesis, taking a position of accusing Him of wrong-doing rather than delighting in His mercy and grace through Christ!

Numbers 31:17-18King James Version (KJV)
17 Now therefore kill every male among the little ones, and kill every woman that hath known man by lying with him.
18 But all the women children, that have not known a man by lying with him, keep alive for yourselves.
Deuteronomy 20:13-14King James Version (KJV)
13 And when the LORD thy God hath delivered it into thine hands, thou shalt smite every male thereof with the edge of the sword:
14 But the women, and the little ones, and the cattle, and all that is in the city, even all the spoil thereof, shalt thou take unto thyself; and thou shalt eat the spoil of thine enemies, which the LORD thy God hath given thee.
Deuteronomy 21:10-13King James Version (KJV)
10 When thou goest forth to war against thine enemies, and the LORD thy God hath delivered them into thine hands, and thou hast taken them captive,
11 And seest among the captives a beautiful woman, and hast a desire unto her, that thou wouldest have her to thy wife;
12 Then thou shalt bring her home to thine house, and she shall shave her head, and pare her nails;
13 And she shall put the raiment of her captivity from off her, and shall remain in thine house, and bewail her father and her mother a full month: and after that thou shalt go in unto her, and be her husband, and she shall be thy wife.
Judges 21:10-12King James Version (KJV)
10 And the congregation sent thither twelve thousand men of the valiantest, and commanded them, saying, Go and smite the inhabitants of Jabeshgilead with the edge of the sword, with the women and the children.
11 And this is the thing that ye shall do, Ye shall utterly destroy every male, and every woman that hath lain by man.
12 And they found among the inhabitants of Jabeshgilead four hundred young virgins, that had known no man by lying with any male: and they brought them unto the camp to Shiloh, which is in the land of Canaan.

Ehm... no... Evolution is a great leveller... and it is not evolution that supposes blacks are less evolved than whites, it is bigoted white godbots who make that supposition because they know no better and then include that idea in the creation ďscienceĒ sites to make it official for the hard of thinking godbot like you.
Evolution does however suppose that the Langkawi bent-toed gecko is more evolved than you because its evolution can be observed occurring now... As evolution also shows the hunble bacteria is more evolutionary advanced than you, it evolved resisance to antibiotics in juts a few years. Whereas your evolutionary clock stopped back in the bronze age when you claim your god drowned every living thing on this planet but close buddy and some of his oppos.
As to why I ďsubscribeĒ to evolution, well... because it is proven factual in several various ways, as opposed you your god dunitwiv magic guess that hasnít. Evolution is tested by several various and independent methods and shown to be 100% factual. Including of course the method that you agree is 100% accurate 100% of the time in all matters other than your faith in which case you claim it is 0% accurate 100% of the time... DNA... yet another lie for you god. Do you not realise that the very fact that you are forced to lie for you god discredits your faith?
And I see you continue the often failed godbot trait of lying name calling because you are just a loser and have nothing else to provide. Note for the poorly educated around here, I am not named Gertrude but feel free to lie and vomit hatred in the name of your god if it helps you get a stiffy.
LOL! oh of course your so-called 'scientists' have adjusted the the ludacris theory of evolution to fit social norms, but initially it came from darwins observation of the aborigine peoples whom he supposed were a link between humans and apes. later on when it became unacceptable to assert such things, they started using the term "missing link" and the search is still on! ;-)

Girls, girls, this confusion of yours is why Paul wrote women should be silent in the Church.

1. Once again, you ignore that Christians are not under the Law.

2. But more importantly, you are avoiding the issue that only Muslims are doing such things. That fact exposes only your bigotry.

Do you see any horseshoe crabs operating any fishing boats? Like one of them being the captain?

This animal hasnít changed in 500 million years. Donít get mad at me because they havenít changed according to the fossil records. Itís just the way it is.

Other animals have seen some moderate changes. So evolutionary wording can apply. Evolution has certainly been a part of knowledge and the language of mankind.

But personally I donít see any concrete evidence that says we evolved from primates. Iím just not buying everything evolutionist are putting out there. Like I said itís pure fantasy to believe whales evolved from hoofed land animals. Itís a Walt Disney type tale that applies to the tail.

I believe mankind was created purposely by a designer. I also believe many of the animals today were purposely created like for example the humming bird. Others evolved over time. I think itís entirely possible there were prototypes of mankind as God tinkered in his garage sort of speak. But in the end God created and the first example of CPR was applied to Adam to start his pulmonary system.

50 years ago Atheist thought it was a joke when they read where God removed a rib from Adam to create Eve. Today we know the rib bone has stem cells. And we understand the possibilities of what can be done with stem cells.

Thereís been a innumerable number of atrocities over the centuries to many people because of intolerant bigots. Some are occurring right now not that far from where you live. And in history many of those atrocities were done to Jews and Christians in Europe.

In 2 hours via jet aircraft you could be right smack in the middle of a war zone where atrocities are occurring right this very minute to Christians, Jews, and Muslims.

I didnít have anything to do with burning of witches. Iím a former fire fighter and I have been burned in an aviation fire. I wouldnít want to see anyone get burned alive including witches. Iím not denying atrocities occurred throughout history. But itís asinine to think it hasnít happened to Christians and Jews because it has happened in far greater numbers.

More creationist sloping shoulders... Macro evolution is simply lots of micro evolution, proven fact. Get over it and educate yourself.
Why should horseshoe crabs be anything more than they have adapted to be? Iíll tell you why, because such specious arguments are all creatards have.
And science is studying the evolution of individual species to remedy that lack of understanding. However on the general level evolution is a proven fact and what you Ďfor one believe or notí is of no consequence.
I too have seen a lot of art, artefacts, fossils etc that are real... it is my hobby, hence my avatar which you essentially have just said does not exist (I assure you it does, I was on the team who discovered it) but I suppose such factual evidence would be beyond you Ė for one.
Wales... why is it a joke, you think itís funny,. You should try looking at the babble and god doing it with magic from nothing Ė yes, read and more to the point...understand the babble for a real good laugh. Back to DNA... Hippos (4 legged animals) are the closest animal genetically to whales. There is fossil evidence also helps justify it. However what you have is faith that it is not so, no evidence is going to convince you because of personal belief and incredulity.
Only science, how about cosmology? How about history? How about anthropology? How about...
Honey, anything (science or otherwise) that you are unwilling to understand that proves you godbook to be at the least, specious you reject out of hand and bash you head against a wall.
Nothing in our Bible comes as close as ridiculous tale as a four legged hoofed animals turning into a whale outfitted with a sophisticated sonar system.

I mean even the Cinderella Story is more believable.

But you freaking Atheist will believe just about any pseudo tale from science.
