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.

Consider that the god originated as a pagan war god, food is a very strong possibility.
Blood sacrifices.

Christianity put an end to that.

That IS the one positive thing that can be credited to it.
Jebus might have saved me from becoming a sacrifice . And the Christian Armies put them that practiced this abomination to the sword and ended it forever.

If not, simply admit that you are here chewing on your cud.
I can't be bothered to find the reference again, but no, I am not "chewing my cud." All the bibles' stories were ripped off from other religions.

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

If you really are atheistic, then nihilism is your ultimate philosophical destination, how does antagonism towards anyone make sense with that in mind?

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.
In other words, there is not now, nor has there ever been, any proof that any of the gods ever worshipped were, in fact, real.

This coming from someone who believes in a god that he can't even prove is real and believes that all the other thousands of gods ever worshipped over the millennia were fake...because his fake god said so.

LOL

Dude, it doesn't take Perry Mason to point out the obvious flaws in religion.

Your perspective on the subject is sadly lacking.

What are you trying to prove? There is no supernatural or dimension other than this physical one, or that you are possessed by some emotional issue?

He can touch our hearts and on the same level it is your choice whether or not to have faith.
If you choose not to have faith, he can choose not to touch your heart.

Sounds like you have a problem with the religion you were in - not God.
this should go down in the encylepedia as a text book example of ignorance and idiocy
on another note creationist need to learn that just because every detail of the universe hasnt been ironed out or unraveled with science yet doesnt automaticly means that your mythological being known as god exsist by defalt
You say my post was a text book example of ignorance and idiocy.

Nope.
I do believe in a higher power that brought forth all creation without exception.

You have no supporting evidence for this assertion of yours, therefore, your god is nothing but your alter ego. Thus when you support stoning children and pedophilia then justify it with "god commanded it" you are really saying that you wanted it to be commanded.
