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.

Thanks for sharing your opinion.
Thanks for showing us on CNN you're proof that we [as Christians] are wrong. Could you show us when you televised your proof??? I missed the most watched episode of your evidence.

I see reading comprehension is your major malfunction. You have been done with this thread for a while but keep coming back to dance for our amusement.

Okay, then you can make one appear, and we will believe.
Make it interesting though, call your deity to appear, an then hold your breath until he shows up for us. Now that will prove who has faith. I have faith you will not be able to hold your breath and you will be quite literately GASPing for air before he shows up.

Sure.
Anyone that says "I've read the bible, cover to cover. I understand it." is nuts.
That's like saying you read a neuroscience book and now you're a neurosurgeon.
The bible takes a lifetime to study and know. Most people never do.
So, the thing's incomprehensible without the assistance of a salesman.

Does that not strike you as odd?

I mean, a deity ought to be clearer, no?

Most atheists like you claim they have proof that God does not exist. As of yet, I see nothing but proof that He does exist. You are empty (and full of anger).

You should really upgrade your standards of what is considered proof.

Wrong.

I do not know of a single atheist who claims to prove that god does not exist.

Also, I, at least am not angry.

Here's how it works:

There is no evidence supporting the existence of a deity.

Therefore, there's no reason to believe in one.

Therefore, I don't.

Fallacy in logic, absence of evidence is not evidence of absence.

You gotta have a better argument than that, there are many things you believe without evidence.

Believer: God.

Everyone else: Kewl! Show me.

Believer:*sputtering* BLASPHEMER!!!

You have messed up the argument. Absence of evidence does not apply in this case - you're trying to make "absence of evidence" mean "evidence of existence".

Won't fly. Think leprechauns.

I have not invoked a Deity or Leprechauns existence. I pointed out that your argument is using faulty logic and easy to refute.

Got anything else? Doubt it...

Yes it is, if the evidence should be there. If God suspended laws of physics to interact with this universe we would be able to detect it.

Funny how the non existant and the invisible always look alike.
