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.

<quoted text>Wrong. Unlike science who claims the universe started 13.7 billion years ago.
They set the start time. Therefore they are stuck with the Nothing to something problem.

God never makes this kind of claim. God claims to have always existed and will always exist. See God is outside of Time!

He created time he is not bound by it.

SaidI: Man made time. Before our brains grew and before we learnt much we didn't need to have time. The more we evolve the more we learn the more time has become important to us.
God didn't make time what would God need that for? Oh it's time I made another universe, time I threw more rock at the moon, time to swirl my finger here to make another black hole. He certainly wouldn't need time.
There was obviously something, gases and other stuff, that was capable of exploding, stuff that created energy, particles, etc. I'm sure you've now read about on here, no not giving links to prove this, I don't need to. It's obvious.

You can't have everything. Where would you put it?

Is there another word for synonym?

You know when you're sitting on a chair and you lean back so you're just on two legs then you lean too far and you almost fall over but at the last second you catch yourself? I feel like that all the time.

Why do supposed "Godly" people continue to imply that people who don't believe, are liars? The amount of times I've now seen the word "lie". You should all know what LIE means. Do you lot really think that Darwin, all before him and after him, who have studied the nature of this world, have perpetuated a mass lie? If man can do that then nothing at all is real, true, honest.
How can a God that is all powerful, capable of creating all the universes, all of this here on earth, become unable to speak to us. What a load of rubbish. Really listen to yourself. To me and other's on here, no doubt your describing a fairy tale.
Norse, Greek etc. are myth? To me there the same thing as what your saying. I can understand why we needed Gods in the past I can't understand why anyone needs one now. Your an adult believing this stuff? I find it very strange.

Pascal's wager, you have a higher chance of angering a god than an atheist, ultimately, considering that of the thousands of proposed gods, most it is said don't care if they are worshiped, as long as a different one is not.

<quoted text>It is unfortunate dag nabbit we have to suffer the effects of such a simply constructed mind as yours ejaculating all over my daughter's face before they are mature all over these forums.

You whipper snappers can't see an all encompassing life force, deity, or whatever you want to call it from your physical young un perspective. You couldn't see it directly without cataracts, nor could you feel it directly of your pants are dry. nor could you hear it directly without my hearing aid. As a physical manifestation that would be like floating down a catheter. You don't feel the full force of the catheter. just the forces diverted trying to get you to have a bowel movement.

The Biblical myth reveals an all powerful force that created something. It used to communicate with it. Then this thingy felt separate, and it lost the ability to communicate directly. This powerful force became frustrated with trying to reach this dense object in its midst, an object that couldn't see it directly. It finally dawned on it that it would have to manifest a part of itself as one of these dense objects to tell it how to get back home. The light was still in the window.

However, some of these dense objects get real dense, and will never see the light. When they dissolve back into the river they don't do it as the coherent, or semi-coherent, assemblages of this life energy they were formed from. The current washes them away you could say.

Now, go switch on your Johnson, Butch, get to thinking, and come back to us again.

I, don’t know, you got me stumped, why do “godly people continue to imply that people who don't believe, are liars?”

Is it because godbots would not know the meaning of truth if it poked them in the eye?

Is it because they are brought up from childhood being indoctrinated in a lie so they come to expect lies from everyone?

The problem is that despite the facts they see faith and belief as truth, and tend to be totally unaware of the difference between faith and truth, therefore anyone who has anything to say that contradicts their faith must be by their own definition, a liar.
There are dome “godly” people who are aware of the meaning of truth and emphasise/distinguish the word with a capital letter “Truth” which when being translated from christian speak means belief. Then there is the word “truthiness”, a newly proclaimed word in the christian language that means to them –‘it’s what I believe and it sounds true so it’s truth enough for me’,- so really we have another christian speak word for belief.

If they don’t know the meaning of the word truth then why should the word lie be any different to them?

Oh yes, and another way that godbots think they get away with lying is by prefixing with “I have heard”

Do you not realise that christianity teaches that satan is the father of lies? Why do you worship your god so openly?

I have early memories of gong to church as a family when I was four. I loved the singing, the pink wafer biscuits and the orange cordial in Sunday school. I find I get the same feeling when I'm in any group singing. But it didn't last long my Dad was Atheist my Mother "hopes" there is something. I do act in a respectful way of people I have worked with that are religious, try not to blaspheme. Imagine signing up for Scientology, with all we know yet people still do. There is a few local kids that became Muslim. One kid who's Dad is a Muslim has spent most of the kids life in jail, became one. He didn't appear to believe in God before, and it didn't help him stop his drug dealing, taking, fornicating etc. what's the point? With all we know about the earth they are joining a religion that thinks we've only been here a few thousand years. It astounds me. So thankful my parents weren't religious, and my Father wanted us to look.

LOL. ;)

One tequila, two tequila, three tequila, floor.

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!'.
