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. Full Story

ah how well you recognize self. you know the old adage? it takes one to know one?

unlike you, i'm not asking you join yorself to any organization

your bias was projected in your 2nd, 3rd, and 4th lines with the terms religious nonsense and imaginary friend.

imhotep quote "1>Humanism respects all life." obviously not in your case; which negates anything you don't agree with; especially things that might be theistic.

imhotep quote "2>It has no bias based on religious nonsense." religious isn't exclusive to theism. it is basically doctrinal and can be sectarian in relation to a party, cult, person, or movement.

imhotep quote "3>It has created no laws based on religious nonsense" this is religious because it claims exclusivity; which is religious or cult like.

imhotep quote "4>It affirms decent human behavior without the need of an imaginary friend." decent isn't a term usually used by those who hold respect for someone who won't ape their every action, belief, or linguistic acrobatics.

you're a proselytizer

Atheism requires no faith at all but I wish i had Jean-Paul sartre's attitude to religion, a man so thoroughly atheist he deemed the whole subject beneath his intelligence to consider. Simply religion is divisive and restricts us as a species, simple as that. Check out a book that's causing a bit of a buzz in the Uk called 2082 the chronicles of hope. On the website the 1st chapter for the 1st book is on there for free, there's a speech in there by an atheist politician that's genius
all doctrine is religious if it isn't followed without question.

linguistic gymnastics can't save you. they'll catch you in your own devices.

man is the only beast who builds a trap
sets it, and catches self in it.

turn me on

my nipples are rock hard

Mami raps right
So I pulled out my d*ck and told her to
Speak into the mic
You love me, you hate me
To those that love to hate me
I love that you hate me greatly
I appreciate your love

you know it ain't love. doggin it

Welcome to the forum Ray!
I am a Secular humanist.
My parents and most of my family were not religious. Religion seldom came up in conversation - And when did it was usually in a card game when Someone had a bad hand and mentioned 'God' as a expletive. ;)
After 911 things changed worldwide...
Not to mention the RCC's pedophilia problems, Again worldwide.
I live my life so that when my feet hit the floor in the morning Satan shudders, cowers in fear and says "OH For Christ's sake... he's awake!"
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.

The only thing that is consistent about theists that come in here, is that when they find out they've been following a myth all their lives...
...instead of admitting it and using the knowledge wisely, they CHOOSE to Lie, Attack, Slander, Belittle, Propogandise.
Its the only characteristic they seem to consistently show - dishonesty.
it seems to me like you may be consistantly lumping all your eggs in one discriptive basket. the generalizations you make rely heavily on the assumption that people cannot disagree honestly about important matters without without one party being dishonest in some way. this does little to describe anything more than your view on theists, but its not to say that that is the reality of matters.
