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.

There is no sin in the bible forum. You either do what you belief to be right, or you don't care about what you belief to be right, and don't.

All of them Dave , you know non belief in America is a small but growing percentage. But 30 years ago probably like 1%.
Most everyone I know is religious, and most ridiculously so.
See Jesus on the cheese toast, and floating in the coffee religiousnutty.
The mass media is responsible for the Jesus on the toast phenomenon. It is also responsible for the rash of UFO sightings and Topix atheists.

Fill an empty mind with bullshit and watch them reproduce.

Har har. How witty.

Rope a dopes.

A little bit of knowledge can be a dangerous thing.

The dumbest humans are not the lowest IQ's. It is those just above the average. The ones that can just make it into college.

An appeal is made to their natural counter culture rebelliousness and reinforced with you are so smart because you believe what I say. Then they get led by the nose the rest of their lives. Said nose is lifted in the air by the leash with a little whisper in their ear telling them how much superior they are to those others.

The smarter and dumber laugh at them. They have sense.

In the beginning the description of it may have been accurate in a metaphorical way, but the description of it was quickly perverted to advance the interests of a particular group. That wouldn't make the original any less real, just discredited.
Man has a way of doing that. Including secularists and the noble ideas they profess.
OH, the bible.

Why is it that many atheists are antagonistic against a God that does not exist and does not by implication challenge their reality?

Isn't antagonism towards a non existent being a sign of pure madness?

Not near as madding as believing in the non-existing ones.

One who wanted the mere mortal humans to know that he was real.

No, I didn't, I don't believe athists are antagonistic against any gods. Maybe towards the ones who believe in them.

So works of magic would turn you into a believer?

Or something to appear and tell you to follow them?

Sheep would, too.

There is nothing in them except food value.

A supreme deity would likely want something more.

He created a garden and something to talk to.

This creature was in the presence and under the protection of this Creator.

This creature listened to something else and lost total trust in its creator.

Then it got chunked out into the wilderness, but not naked.

Perhaps this creator made a mistake, but you will be the one to pay for it.

Not a literal story, but maybe something like that.

If there was not a creative force to create the creature, there would be no creature. Denying the existence of a creative force and its continued maintenance of you, at least on the environmental level, is on the stupid side.

Funny, the bible calls followers sheep.

What exactly does it mean when they call them sheep? Does that mean that they regard them as nothing more than sheep, or does that have an even scarier implication than I think? Does that mean they merely think of them as puppets in their religion?
