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>Very interesting point, you seem to be comparing adult perceptions of life and those of children. Children love to play make believe, love to make up imaginary creatures and beings, magical places, and fantastic adventures. However, most of us outgrow those childish thoughts and accept what reality and science tell us to be true. I do understand those so terrified of death, that they recreate their childhood fantasies. Tell themselves over and over again about this magical land where one can live forever, until they are totally convinced that it is true, dispute a complete lack of supportive evidence. I find it kind of pitiful myself. You go ahead with your magical lands, I'll stick to being an adult and face whatever realities came my way, including death.
What's your opinion on Near Death experiences?

Near death experiences are all the same with the exception of going up or down. They all describe a tunnel and either a bright light or darkness.

Double Fine then had a few! Double Fine dreams of dark, moist, tunnels. Sometimes going up, sometimes down

It is highly amusing how the beliefs, conclusions, and argumentation Topix atheists have about life, existence, et al, are based upon the proclamations of others. Like stujents just learning something and arguing the finer points of what the professor just told them.

Will they ever mature? That is the question.

Gary Vey has a way of simplifying things, even though he can emphasize aspects toward possibly incorrect conclusions.

But, read this and watch the video. Then remember things old Dave has proposed on here quite unaware of these scientific principles of modern physics. Dave doesn't read physics books. He finds them confusing and obfuscatory and over complicated. But he has a grasp of how things work and just figures them out and how things can work.

You have minds that can look at something like this and go ooh and ahh and worship the things, then you have those that will go hmmmm....

I will disagree with the statement in there about those discrete particles. They are caused by observation. That math wave being fed back on.

If you were brave enough to prove your god, you wouldnt need to troll this forum Dave.

Its strange why you creationist don't realise that lying to atheists about a god you have no proof of converts nobody.

Just what am I trying to convert you to, crazy person?

BTW, the physics principle in that article did not originate in theistic circles.
