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.

When we can definitively measure the age of human bones to be 200,000 years old, we can effectively dismiss the idea of a 6,000 year lineage. That much is exact enough and not assumption like your assumption that you troglodyte science book trumps modern empirical science based on physical evidence. I find your belief to be at best laughable, and at worst ...you the subject of pity. For being so willfully ignorant to dismiss the evidence in front of your face, to cling to a proven tract of religious ignorance, that turns men into mindless morons with the beliefs born of ancient stupidity.
You can not "definitively" measure. Those measurements you call that were based on relativity, with a heavy dose of presumptions thrown in.

I just don't believe the ancients were all that stupid. I just watched a program regarding the building projects by the ancient Egyptians, for example. They still can't figure out how they did it all given their limited resources. All these written records is actual evidence far more reliable than bones and dating methods with built in assumptions which only a handful of people understand. The fact you rant and call others stupid only means your case is not all that strong because you would not have to resort to those sleaze tactics if they were. The fact remains, none of the ancients believed what the moderns do. Noah and the flood was actual history to them and you have multiple independent accounts! All the Kings of Europe can trace their ancestry back to Noah and they were all wrong and the moderns are the ones who know everything! Take it on down the road!

What created your god, then?

If you can claim "always was"?

We can apply the SAME DODGE to the universe itself: always was (in one shape or another).

An added benefit? It removes all of your god's EVIL in one go.

Wrong. The *mainstream* of science understands that quantum events are uncaused. The *mainstream* knows that quantum mechanics is a very good description of reality, but is an acausal theory: you do not get causality of specific events, but instead probabilities of those events happening. Further, these *are* the laws of science, so they definitely do not violate the laws of science. Finally, they are mathematical descriptions, so math does not disprove them.
In other words, you are wrong about ewvery single point of your post.
Is that a new record for a godbot?

At least three (maybe four) false statements in one go?

And that solves what?

So now you have to explain how an incredibly powerful and intelligent entity just exists outside of time without explanation but some cause of the universe can't.

A God isn't nothing, he's a something and he does need to be explained.

You are lacking a certain reality, He doesn't "need" to be explained. You may "feel" he needs to be explained.

However..

You are on the lower rung of the order of things.

Now, if you went out and stopped the next tornado in your locale by your demand, and it explained itself to you, let us know. But do keep in mind the universe is much bigger than that.

Where you people get your logic is a mystery.

If God doesn't need explaining then why should the universe?
Why can't it just exist without the need for a creator God?

Claiming God doesn't need explaining isn't logic, it's just cheating.

The ancients also supposed that bleeding the ill would let the evil spirits out that were making them sick. They thought the Earth was the center of the universe, that witches were responsible for all manner of things, that albatrosses were bad luck and all manner of stupid crap.

It boils down to if you believe there was a purpose to our creation. We ARE created, matters not how or by what.

If your life has no purpose, why do you go through the struggles? Why do you worry about the here and now and the future if it is ultimately meaningless? Gets too much and you can put yourself to eternal sleep in a hurry, you wouldn't be missing a thing except pain and anguish, right?

Answering details of your 1st half. Get me to a tread I would open up about my personal beliefs. They are just mine. Answering your last statement I do literally worship myself a piece of God is in most of us, I believe you, do know yourself you beliefs become you or vice versa. I have also all ways claimed you would never read the books I read, because they would not interest you. It's no surprise you fin my post boring. I, however find your post funny.

You can't admit the idea time is yet to begin is stupid. I really don't see how it favors atheist or theist. We could call it a theory. Like I said some times you post the funniest stuff.

Education now is, in large part, indoctrination. That is why you have men getting married to each other wearing dresses along with the young believing they are little more than big brained apes. Some may carry these assumptions to their natural conclusions. They may for example shoot up a school, kill students wearing shirts which say 'Natural Selection' on them. They may shoot an athlete because they are bored. They may form gangs and shoot each other in record numbers. They are not told they are image of God and are accountable to God for their treatment of each other. Nor do they have responsible adult male role models. That is why people are pulling their children out of public education.

You cannot disprove that God and are of the minority opinion in all human history so why trust you? It just does not seem to occur to you that if you are wrong you have made just about the biggest and stupidest mistake any human being can make in life which comes with horrible consequences.

Nope. I'll donated to a medical facility as a medical cadaver, and then cremated.
At no time are worms involved.
But your bigotry and hate is duly noted.
Your hate is strong... I can almost feel it oozing from you.
Let me get this straight, when you pass your organs will be donated. That is very nice of you. Further instructions of your organs are, that after the person that receives the passes away, if that person wishes to be buried they must first remove your donated organ for cremation. Or maybe that person would have to sign a waiver that he or she will be cremated. DO YOU HAVE ANY IDEA HOW FUNNY YOU ARE.

Actually, it is one distinct possibility that is consistent with everything we know about the universe at this point. It is even a prediction of those theories that merge quantum mechanics and general relativity, such as string thoery and loop quantum gravity.
Do you care to give an alternative theory that incorporates both QM and GR? If so, please present it and we can discuss it.
You and I have different realities. I don't have the time to co on about it, and it really is just that simple.
