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.

lol you are hilarious. i like a lot of your jokes, and i mean that litterally. you are very right, the RCC has to answer for the pedophelia, and the muslims have to answer for 9/11. and by answer i mean they must account for the actions and properly deal with these issues. im not particularly religious, although i am a christian. im here because i find very reasonable complants about religions, and i want to better myself by challenging my world view. even if i discuss with passion, im still here to be friendly and just increase my knowledge. by the way, i tweeted that jesus joke, it was pretty funny.
I'm glad you enjoyed it!

You can learn a lot here.

But some irreligious posters may pick on you and I would advise you just ignore them.

Whether we agree or not it's really not important.
We each learn something from the other.

And since you enjoy your like I do I think you'll find this one a classic get ready to tweet it!

Wilson's Nails

Wilson runs a nail factory and decides his business needs a bit of advertising. He has a chat with a friend who works in marketing and he offers to make a TV ad for Wilson's Nails.

"Give me a week," says the friend, "and I'll be back with a tape."

A week goes by and the marketing executive comes to see Wilson. He puts a cassette in the video and presses play. A Roman soldier is busy nailing Jesus to the cross. He turns to face the camera and says with a grin "Use Wilson's Nails, they'll hold anything."

Wilson goes mad shouting: "What is the matter with you? They'll never show that on TV. Give it another try, but no more Romans crucifying Jesus!"

Another week goes by and the marketing man comes back to see Wilson with another tape. He puts it in the machine and hits play. This time the camera pans out from a Roman standing with his arms folded to show Jesus on the cross. The Roman looks up at him and says 'Wilson's Nails, they'll hold anything'.

Wilson is beside himself. "You don't understand: I don't want anything with Jesus on the cross! Now listen, I'll give you one last chance. Come back in a week with an advertisement that I can broadcast."

A week passes and Wilson waits impatiently. The marketing executive arrives and puts on the new video. A naked man with long hair, gasping for breath, is running across a field. About a dozen Roman soldiers come over the hill, hot on his trail. One of them turns to camera and says 'If only we had used Wilson's Nails!'.

Need more? Here you go!

The drunk in the cathedral

A drunk staggered down the main street of the town. Somehow he managed to make it up the stairs to a cathedral and into the entrance, where he crashed from pew to pew, finally making his way to a side aisle and into a confessional.

A priest had observed all this, and figured the fellow needed some help, so he entered his side of the confessional. After the priest sat there in deathly silence, he finally asked, "May I help you, my son?"

"I dunno," came the drunk's voice from behind the partition. "You got any paper on your side?"

Yours in Christ - Allah willing - Shalom!

Hey, RR is striking a six-month-old.

You don't want to risk killing a baby.

RR is very considerate.

Atheist does to require a belief, the belief that deities don't exist.
Since that is NOT knowledge, it's belief, opinion, faith, trust, confidence, persuasion, credence, whatever you want to call it, it's not a fact that deities don't exist.
Since FACTS are defined as...."A thing that is INDISPUTABLY the case" and since the existence of deities is certainly disputable, the by definition, it is a FACT that deities do not exits.

Since a FACT is......"A piece of information used as EVIDENCE" ( your lest favorite word) And since there is no EVIDENCE for deities, it become a FACT that deities do not exist.

You'd do well to try and really understand the following. I do understand that no amount of logic or reason can penetrate the damage that religion has done to your thought process, but give it a try.

"When considering any matter of philosophy, ask yourself ONLY what are the FACTS and what is the TRUTH that these FACTS bear out. NEVER let yourself be diverted either by what you WISH to believe, or by what you THINK would have been socially acceptable to believe, but look ONLY and SOLELY at what are the FACTS."

Once again ditch digger, atheism is not believing in a god. Show observable proof and we can go from there.
