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.

Well Senile Dave for all your Grandpa Simpson like rambling I notice you were unable to answer my question....
Oh... the rambling was your way of trying to change the subject because your facts couldn't win out.

When have I said I was a topix atheist? You're going to have to dig that post up Dave.

Now I am an atheist because I see there is no observable evidence whatsoever for the theist's claim of a god.

Dave certainly I would out score you on an IQ test or a scored debate.... Easily.

We can see this by your inability to answer my question, let alone factually prove me wrong on anything.

That's a funny way of saying I have stumped you.

Banged your head into anything lately Dave?:))

We should urge Dave not to play around with dangerous machinery, especially the wood chippers and Bush hogs.

Poor GML. His view on the world is so far back in that cave he can't see nothing unless it walks in.

Your first sentence makes you a Topix atheist. If you can't see it, it don't exist.

However, those with more developed minds have an awareness that goes beyond the visible, and can understand the intricacies of creations. Which then leads to us being creations. You are stuck on our just popping into existence.

I would have no problem getting into MENSA. Several tests over the years makes that door wide open to me.

I have not been trained in formal debate. That is something for kids to play with. If you didn't understand my point, and such caused me a problem, I would just remove you and keep moving on. I am an evolved man.

Poopsie, start barking one yip per second. In over 220 years, if you don't get real hoarse, you would have yipped for each person alive in the world today. That is a lot of people. Very few of whom that are impressed with your talents, or have reason to believe you know a damned thing. For one, they are busy with their own lives, and base it upon their own perceptions.

It is funny about Topix atheists. They think a formal education equals intelligence and wisdom. Not so unless they are used to further learning. Otherwise, they are just trying to buy the stairway to heaven. Even though they believe their passing poop will leave some mark on mankind and make it better. It won't happen, the shoes will return it to the dust.

Does it bother you knowing that one, at the least, of those poor Filipinos you help has more on the mental ball than you do?

One of the criteria for me buying this place is the lack of trees in the yard. Thus no more need for chainsaws, wood chippers, and bush hogs.

BTW, sharp tools cause less accidents than dull tools. A few moments putting an edge on something can preclude months, years, or a lifetime wishing you had.

However, Old Dave is getting wiser and more selective assessing the risks in what he thinks just has to be done.

I think you are confused. An IQ test is not a measure of how many your got wrong.......and not answering you is a sign of your inability to create something that needs to be challenged.

Honestly GML, I can not recall a single post of yours, other than this one I am posting in regards to. You see, you are forgettable.

Sorry Dave your nursing home edition readers digest insults only make yourself look lame.

You seem to think that age and head injuries automatically make what you have to say correct or meaningful. When you are able to present facts backing them up you have a case. When you don't have the facts you don't and end up just another dithering old fool.

Again I would certainly outscore you on an IQ test. For example...

You use the term topix atheists but are unable to demonstrate that this so called topix atheist even exists. I am not a topix atheist and have never identified myself as such. Do you mean atheists that post on topix by chance? Even then many of us are night and day different on many positions so even then your rants about topix atheists doesn't really make sense.

You seem to have problems even being coherent Dave. Work on that first okay old timer?

On a scale of 10 - I give it you a 2
because I've never seen a 1.

Yes indeed you are clearly defined.

Atheism requires as much faith as religion?

I don't know about that, but what I do know is too many times I've found both sides to be equally obnoxious in insisting others follow their beliefs.

I've had just as many atheists eager to preach at me and go into a frothroll about how there is no God, and I had better agree with them OR ELSE! Then I walk down the street and get the same thing in revese--i.e. someone in my face insisting God exists and I'd better agree with them OR ELSE!

To me they're two sides of the same coin--one's a bible thumper and the other is just an un-bible thumper. They're rude either way and I have yet to ever say, "Oh okay, I'll follow along like a good little sheeple and agree with you, just because you say I should."

That's because they enter our forums with a holier than thou attitude.

These are people that believe snakes talk donkeys talk, wizards, angels, witches and devils you name it...exist!

What brings them to our forums to begin with?
You only have to read the nonsense that they post.

And what I find particularly hilarious...
They are perhaps the worst example of a Christian that any Christian church or congregation would want to claim.

They would actually have to attend Sunday preschool For remedial theology.
