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.

Did you trust the word of clergy and your faith to arrive at this conclusion?
Or did you in fact try to use scientific observations someone made to offer as evidence that this it is so?
Do you believe it's true ? Does belief have anything to do with it?
Or is it a mathematical problem ?

<quoted text>This is where you fail. You claim that there are steps in science that we can view, test, retest and verify, then you suggest that there is proof. Well, that proves that you have no scientific intellect. Only alcohol and math contain proofs. Really, you say that in science you can talk to many who have walked up the stairs, please just talk to one. You are also confusing science and scientists. God is not more absent in science than your allegory of steps would exist without a designer.
Before you continue, please show me one science proof. There are none.
When atheists attempt to use science they are being dishonest. You are attempting to set science up as in opposition to God, when it is not and can not be.
Many parents have said the same thing about training their child, only to have their child blown up in Sandhook, abducted like Polly Claus (sic), or runaway as often happens. So, no, you have faith and your faith is in that your message was received and that life will not swallow up your child.
As for waking up, your waking up 18,809 times is just your fuel to give you faith that you will wake up tomorrow, when you may not. Besides, why should we believe that you have waken up 18, 809 times, you have no evidence and why should we believe your word.
You see, with Christians not only do we walk up the platform you call religion, we verify, document, and observe God each step of the way and on each platform we move forward to. Unlike you, we also walk up the science platform, we use air conditioning, we use medicine, we use cars, airplanes, we use hospitals and when those things fail you, such as medicine, we reach for God, and on the platform that I am on, He responds and heals.....which is verified, documented, and observed..
You see, it is your choice to believe the evidence just like it is mine not to believe that you have awakened 18,809 times or that you are 51 with a birthday in Sept. or Oct. born in 1961.
You may 'verify' and 'prove' the steps in your knowledge of God, but you have not shown that to others so they also see it. With science facts that are proved, not only have they been found and proved, but they have been shown to man to be true, and man understands that. Some science theories based on extrapolating beyond what is now proved, of course, has not yet been proved, but the point at which science has arrived tends to point in the direction of the theory being a fact.

With God we still have had no evidence presented to the masses with which we can agree that from that we might extrapolate the existence of a super invisible being.

Talking of Black Holes which have not actually been proved, but are suggested by what man has observed about the universe, is not the same as talking of God based on what some men wrote in ancient books, which have already had parts of them proved to not be reliable. Error is understandable, but with yet no proof of any of the Bible, we are still 100% in the dark on the existence of God.

Even if we could accept that Jesus did exist on this earth, which is not likely possible this long after his alleged death, that still would not prove anything of a supernatural basis that is attached to the stories written about Jesus.

thx.
Now you know why there are 3 major religions stemming from the same god. And why there are so many sects of each.

Every sect fully believes that they are the ones who know exactly what god meant and wants.

Maybe we should take a closer look at how the religion started, how the stories were written and how they were put together?!?!

Naw, too much work.

Is accusing a person of drinking too much, or of not searching for God, proving to us that a God exists? I have heard or read about many people stating that one hasn't found God because that person hasn't "looked", but these words are empty unless you can prove to us that you have found God that way, which it appears you have failed, since this is still an open question worldwide.

You are trying to use an illogical accusation to cover for the fact, IMO, that you have nothing to give us.

I cannot prove that a god doesn't exist, and I have stated that many times, as has most of the other people on here who do not have a belief in a god. But if a god exists, then give us the proof and we will look at 'your proof' and decide if it is legitimate, or admit that we still are uncertain because we can't see it the way you describe it.

You sure know a lot that isn't true.

Here is a simple challenge that destroys your credibility by pointing out your false assumptions.

Please identify where in scripture does it state the age of the earth?

<quoted text>I just got here, but I do not see anyone asking you to or requiring you to believe. That would require you to have rational thinking.
You see, the irrational person believes in black holes, evolution, speciation, the laws of physics in time and space, and then responds with proof of why you believe as events in the Bible by a God you do not believe in.
Crimes against humanity, so when did God become human? Do you kill ants and kill grass and weeds? Well, God calls useless sinners as no more than weeds growing among grass with one purpose to snuff out the life from the living.
The main issue here is that you can not judge, decipher or attribute ANYTHING to a God you claim does not exist.
If you accept that God does exist, then you except that He is God and not human, and you are but an ant in His design of things. If you don't like ants being killed, then don't step on grass. All that is here is for God's purpose and your life may be expiring, since it does have a time stamp.
It seems to me that you are assuming the existence of God, which you have not shown any proof for existence, and then are proselytizing. What value is telling us what God does or wishes, when we haven't established between us that this God exists? Especially as most here who don't have a belief do in fact know the jargon of believers, and most likely know as much about what is in the Bible as do believers. It is not like the Bible was just published. We seem to get a lot of people quoting the Bible to us, as if they are providing something new we had not heard before.

You want proof!?!? Here's proof!

I have this aunt, who has a friend, who has a cousin, who knows a guy, who knows a girl, who had a tumor the size of a basketball! Her church prayed for her and when she went in for her first radiation treatment, they couldn't find the tumor!

Now if that ain't proof that god exists, then I don't know what is!

Actually the non-Catholic churches grew out of the Catholic Church which was first established in Rome. Some of the most talked about fathers of Protestantism were Catholic Priests until they rebelled against their church. Whether the current Roman Catholic Church is exactly the same as when the Christian religion first started, not having been a Roman Catholic, I would not be able to say with much knowledge. Obviously the introduction of the papacy was a later addition. It would have been healthy for the RC church and the world if that papacy had ended with the resignation a short time ago of the most recent ex-Pope.

It gives dates from jesus on back to the six day creation. A little research and math is all it takes.

The universe is what approximately 13.75 billion years old, the Earth is approximately 4.54 billion years old. Kind beat that whole 6 day thing all to hell.

Saying that we do not know what is not yet known is not assuming anything.

I know that is what you are saying, but you claimed the Bible stated it.

I have done my research, now stop dodging and tell us where in the scripture does it stated the age of the earth.

This is a fallacy that you have fell for and never had to back up your BS.
