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.

Calling someone "dear" works on so many levels.
It really smokes out the closet jobs, doesn't it?

Everyone else I encounter takes "dear" at face value or sees the irony, depending on the relationship.

I drove past the A43 yesterday to visit my parents in the Banbury area. They already had signs on the M40 proclaiming no through traffic at Silverstone.

I nearly made it to Silverstone this year. I was at Singapore last September. Not a classic race, but a great live spectacle nonetheless.

Quali and the race days looking fine. The showers down here in the Chilterns will clear up by drinkies time tonight. You should gave a great time.

Opinion. Please donít group everyone as thinking the same as you, it is a very christian attitude and quite ignorant and hurtful to those who donít think as you do.

I have no god to lie for, I personally abhor lying and have no tolerance for liars so I do not lie.

Christ is a lie. In such ďemulationĒ christianity is at the very least blurring the boundaries of belief but more usually deliberately confusing the meaning of the word belief to mean truth (or with a capital Truth) or even truthiness, i.e. lying.

I think you misunderstood me and if I wasn't clear enough, then I'll be glad to rephrase or clarify at your request.

Now as for your assertion that Christ is a lie, would you care to explain in what way you believe it's a lie?

Are you saying He never existed? If yes, why?

Are you saying He wasn't the Messiah?

Are you saying He didn't rise from the dead?

Answers to these questions would be helpful in sharing dialogue with you. We can also explore the philosophy of belief and truth if you wish to.

Get an old VW. Leave the battery disconnected.

Your child's go kart might come in handy, too.

Bicycles. Bicycles with trailers. Little red wagons.

We would recover faster than that, though.

Nothing like an act of God to get people motivated.

MC shows his art of sing wrote:
MC is the best Protoss player around the world. He is even nicknamed the Protoss president.
MC sang songs passionately in the seventh HomeStory Cup tournament. He performed just like a hot star! Awesome! We all suggest him to be a singer rather than a player. Letís enjoy MCís singing.
video here: http://www.gameguyz.com/news/game/mc-shows-hi...
Holy shit, this is just horrible, do you know anything about music? His intonation is frightful, he gets so sharp when he tries to sing loud. his intervals are not true at all. He has absolutely NO sense of melodic phrasing. To make matters even worse, it a terrible song he's TRYING to sing. Grow up, will ya, listen to some real singers!!!

"Your presupposition is based on naturalism though. Yes, people typically stay dead and do not rise again, but if God is real, wouldn't we expect Him to have that kind of power?"

No, I would expect if God is real that he would make a sacrifice that is genuine, one that people tied to naturalism could understand and accept, not one mired in supernatural mumbo jumbo.

The event left you in a Christianized world. Your entire overdeveloped sense of morality is a product of that. Now get humble and realize that The Force works in ways you can't understand.

Serenade the flying fish. They can't throw fish at you like the porpoises will.

"Again you have made another good point, but you're thinking of the sacrifice in linear natural terms. I'll explain. Yes, Jesus is one person of the trinity but there's a key difference during His earthly ministry. Jesus chose to limit His powers at times. Just because a powerful being can do certain things does not mean that they will do them."

"What Jesus did was take God's judgement onto Himself during the crucifixion. This is the theological sacrifice. He lived the life we should have lived, and He died the death we deserved to die,(under judgement) and He did so that we wouldn't have to. He defeated death for us."

Of course I'm thinking in linear natural terms, thats what people grounded in reality do. Thats how critical thinking people operate. Are you suggesting we think of this supposed sacrifice in supernatural terms, the supernatural were NOTHING is real? Wouldn't you think that knowing how his creations perceive things, God would have made a genuine sacrifice, one that the common man could understand and appreciate?

A Theological sacrifice? Wonderful!! Theology, the study of that which is only imagined.

Who is to say how I am to live my life? I am the only one who has that power, life's decisions belong solely to me.

No One DESERVES to die, life is beyond precious. All intimations are that this is the ONLY life we have. There is no evidence of an afterlife. I do know what a comforting thought it is to know you can never truly die. The arrogance factor here is astounding. With the entire cosmos in entropy, suns, solar systems, entire galaxies dying, our own sun on its way to total distraction, YOU are so special, that YOU will avoid the cosmic inevitability, and live for ever, Shocking!!!!
