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.

If you didnt have a bias outlook, you would realize in the OT that ''Judgment'' for idolatry and disobedient was executed on the spot. As for the NT we now have "Grace" longsuffering that any should not perish, but that all come to repentance.

Your problem is simply RELIGION

The Christian view that all intercourse outside marriage is immoral was based upon the view that all sexual intercourse, even within marriage, is regrettable.

A view of this sort, which goes against biological facts, can only be regarded by some people as a morbid aberration. The fact that it is embedded in Christian ethics has made Christianity throughout its whole history a force tending towards mental disorders and unwholesome views of life.

The Church had devastating impact upon society. As the Church assumed leadership, activity in the fields of medicine, technology, science, education, history, art and commerce all but collapsed.

Technology disappeared and the Church became the most cohesive power in Western society. The extensive aqueduct and plumbing systems vanished.

Orthodox Christians taught that all aspects of the flesh should be reviled and therefore discouraged washing as much as possible.

Toilets and indoor plumbing disappeared. Disease became commonplace as sanitation and hygiene deteriorated. For hundreds of years, towns and villages were decimated by epidemics.

Europe entered the Dark Ages. NUFF SAID!

So since you agree with the passage you cannot cherry pick scriptures anymore.
It's okay, Ditch diggers like you misread the bible all the time.
<quoted text>
HA! I knew it. You DO think that verse is talking about correcting the bible.

You're not schooled in the bible at all - you have an elementary understanding of it, which is typical of atheists.

That verse is talking about correcting yourself, not the bible.

See? This is why you're an atheist.

You're so ignorant of the bible you don't even know when it was written.

You could at least google it and pretend you know, before showing off your ignorance.

Really, you have faith that leprechauns are not real?
faith 1. Complete trust or confidence in someone or something.
2. Strong belief in God or in the doctrines of a religion, based on spiritual apprehension rather than proof.
I am going to guess that when you use the word 'faith', in the case of the leprechauns, you are using definition number 1 and you are trying to tied that directly to definition number 2.
Sorry, but that is not permitted. You must be consistent in order to be taken seriously.
I am being consistent and honest. I have faith (or complete trust in something) that leprechauns don't exist.

Just like you atheists have faith (or complete trust in something) that God doesn't exist.

Don't be afraid of the word 'faith'.

But I don't have complete trust that there is no god. I don't have complete trust that there are no leprechauns.

Just because I have seen equal evidence for both, I does not mean that I know that they don't exist.

I will tell you that the Judeo-Christian-Muslim god does not exist. The bible proves that.

I found this incisive commentary accurate - congrats to : P_Smith. ;)

Forum: Teacher loses job because of atheism

P_Smith | Sunday Apr 21

And the only people who have to obey a religion are those who belong to it.

Isn't it interesting how the religitards want tyranny of the majority when their own group is the majority (and the ability to oppress others with "laws"), but then whine about "respect!" and "rights!" when their own group is the minority (e.g. muslims in the US, christians in Egypt).

Yes, but you completely ignored this:

But I don't have complete trust that there is no god. I don't have complete trust that there are no leprechauns.
Just because I have seen equal evidence for both, I does not mean that I know that they don't exist.

and this:

Once you catch up, I will gladly provide the evidence for my last statement.

Let's revisit your book shall we?

When debating the "truth" of the Bible, what usually gets lost in the shuffle is a very important consideration.

Just what all is in this hotly debated Bible?

A good question is: Who would want to defend this book in the first place?

It sounds so homey and sweet, and you can imagine Dad smoking a pipe, seated next to the fireplace, while his adoring wife and children listen to him read from the Good Book.

But there's a problem with this cozy, homespun image. Dad's going to have to do a hell of a lot of speedy, judicious editing as he reads.

The Bible is presented as the ultimate guide to moral principles, high standards and ethical living.

That book is everywhere, at least in the USA. You can't turn on the TV or radio or pick up a newspaper or magazine, or look in the window of a bookstore, let alone walk into one, or open a book catalogue, without being bombarded with the word "Bible."

The so-called History Channel is now featuring shows about David and Goliath and Noah's Ark, and it presents these biblical yarns as history.

Even the Discovery Channel is bending to the pressure. So, as long as society is flinging the Bible at us, and our politicians are quoting from it relentlessly, and Christians smugly and conspicuously carry the book with them everywhere, and Televangelists wave it dramatically, declaring it to be the "world's best-selling book for a reason,"

It may be the world's best seller, but not one in a thousand knows what's really in it you included.

Behold, with a great plague will the LORD smite thy people, and thy children, and thy wives, and all thy goods. And thou shalt have great sickness by disease of thy bowels, until thy bowels fall out.--2 Chronicles 21:14
