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.

He did as well as the fiction writer had him do.

Again half wit you can't assign attributes and feats to a god until you prove there is even a god there.

Saying that we do not know what is not yet known is not assuming anything.
That was a very good try though!
Oh, so you are admitting you don't chit!!! So why should we listen to someone who lacks so much knowledge?

Wait, let me guess your default answer, I don't know.

Did I get that about right? Yep.

Oh.

You're assuming the 6 days of creation was an actual 144 hours.

I didn't know you were a creationist.

Yawn you can accept scientific observable data or deny it and make yourself look like an ignorant jackass.

No laws attempting to rule over people's lives are being created because of black holes.

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?
HINT: the answer is "it doesn't" now go take your nap, junior.
It was you experts in all things that pointed it out by using the bible how old Earth is.
The simple challenge that destroys YOUR credibility.

It seems to me that you are assuming that nothing exist beyond the natural, and then are proselytizing...
Perhaps you are confusing someone who says that he has no belief in a god for which no evidence has ever existed is also a person who is prosytizing aobut some belief. I don't believe. If I am given something which I can see some evidence of them I might believe. If the evidence is proven then I would have no choice because I owuld then know rather than believe.

I have not been pushing the scientific theories on Topix, though I may have mentioned some things which science has proved, one of which is evolution. We do not have all of the steps or even a first step, which I doubt there is a first step, in evolution but man has proved that evolution occurs and has occurred.

I'll play your game! Just as you do.

I asked you first to show your evidence for your god.

Show us how knowledgeable you are.

We have writings from early second century mentioning Catholics.

<quoted text>That is simply a lie. The rebellion was after the fact. The RCC did not come into existence until 380-450 AD, at least 340-410 years after Christ. The first Christians were Jews who had this 340-450 year start on the pagan catholic church. These Jews who became Christians had their religion from the first tablet and law which Moses gave to them. The papacy is no more and no less than the pagan church that reigned in Rome with the Romans when they killed Christ. You can not say much it seems with much knowledge. It is apparent that you are too lazy to conduct a search and study.

I am not a Catholic and do not support them, but your statement is like saying that it would be best if all gays resigned with the latest gay to die of AIDS. As much as I am opposed to the Catholic doctrine they have more right to exist than gays do. By sheer numbers you lose in that argument.

Would it be a rational position, in your view, to think the Pyramids are the result of random weather patterns?

The 6 day creation and resting on the 7th is an myth coinciding with the Jewish sabbath or day off for god lol! It's a poetic account linking Yahweh to man showing that indeed god was made in man's image.

Why do you limit your god? Are you saying he could not have done it in 6 actual days?

In no ancient translation of genesis does it even hint at anything more than 6 actual days. Not does any ancient documented debate state that it was anything other than 6 actual days with one day to rest. The poetic myth gives a charming wannabe comparison and the cycle of how things went in those days.

In ancient days such poetic license was approved and appreciated.

But in modern days poetry just doesn't cut it when people are trying to use the ancient bible myths to rule over others yes?

DNA’s definition as a literal code (and not a figurative one) is nearly universal in the entire body of biological literature since the 1960&#8242;s.

The book Information Theory, Evolution and the Origin of Life is written by Hubert Yockey, the foremost living specialist in bioinformatics. The publisher is Cambridge University press. Yockey rigorously demonstrates that the coding process in DNA is identical to the coding process and mathematical definitions used in Electrical Engineering. This is not subjective, it is not debatable or even controversial. It is a brute fact!

What were the six days of creation? Were they Earth days? Were they god's days? Does god even have days? What does he base his days on?

When god said that he rested for a day, how long did he really rest? Is that why Eve ate the forbidden fruit, cause god was resting for millions of Earth years?

When god called the light Day, and the darkness he called Night, how long was that day?

Your god must flip back and forth between an Earth day and a god day quite often. Didn't he realize how bad that would confuse people?

No atheism forum?

http://m.topix.com/forum/religion/atheism

Show us observable proof for god, until then the atheist is on solid ground and you know it.
