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.

So?

It's one possible explanation.

You just don't like it because there is no "gawd" involved.

As result, it's stronger than **anything** you have proposed.

Do you have ONE (1) FACT that would back your silly claim of "god"?
Just one-- that's all anyone asks.
No?
I am very happy with my beliefs. If you want to sell me a different package. Please offer something good.

Atheism, no soul. I have felt yearning. That's enough proof for me. I have a soul. I move on into another existence after this life. In my case I come back as another person.

No soul, no afterlife..... Atheism does suck. You're not throwing great parties.

Atheism sucks so much, if you could prove it, which you know you can't. I still wouldn't want to be it. If you ever did prove it as fact, and thank God you can't and it isn't. That would humanities worse day. Being slaved by Extra Terrestrials wouldn't be as bad. Spreading atheist is worse than not picking up after your dog, after deliberately giving him diarrhea. I don't think I could exaggerate about how bad atheism is. I would take any religion over it. It is unbecoming, putting it mildly.

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?
My parents created me. My husband and I created our children (I was there from start to finish) and so it goes.

Your life may be meaningless (another subjective opinion on your part) but mine, fortunately is filled with purpose. I've had a good time so far, the ups AND the downs, it's all part of the experience. When I'm gone, there are plenty of others to carry on and this world will keep on spinning for a long, long time. Kind of nice really, I enjoy being a part of it.

I had not heard of NDE's at the time, so there was nothing to read. Sure I'm subjective, it's MY experience.....so is your experience and your interpretation of it.....subjective.
[email protected]* GET OVER IT!
The only difference between a dream and a reality is which one you wake from, sweetness.

I never heard of them, either. This was 20 years ago.

You know yours was subjective. What makes you so sure everyone else's was, too? Not to mention your absolute truth proclamation that death is just going to sleep?

Your big deal so what attitude is whistling past the graveyard. You have to go through the experience again. You just hope you are right.

Internet TROLL Chunkyboy

Why do trolls do it?

I believe that most trolls are sad people, living their lonely lives vicariously through those they see as strong and successful.

Disrupting a stable newsgroup gives the illusion of power, just as for a few, stalking a strong person allows them to think they are strong, too.

For trolls, any response is 'recognition'; they are unable to distinguish between irritation and admiration; their ego grows directly in proportion to the response, regardless of the form or content of that response.

Trolls, rather surprisingly, dispute this, claiming that it's a game or joke; this merely confirms the diagnosis; how sad do you have to be to find such mind-numbingly trivial timewasting to be funny?

Remember that trolls are cowards; they'll usually post just enough to get an argument going, then sit back and count the responses (Yes, that's what they do!).
Trolls don't have friends. On the internet, because they interact with human beings, they can convince themselves that they are important, the centre of the universe - that, to them, is better than any friendship.

Don't forget, the troll thinks he is always right, and therefore better than other folk. In real life, exactly the opposite applies. the troll has no friends and virtually no interaction with other people.

If he's a teen (many are), then he lives in his bedroom, trolling, playing computer games with 'friends'(who he doesn't know at all), and joining roleplay sites, where - of course - he is a hero, or a powerful villain, who is respected in an inverse ratio to the respect he feels for himself.

If he's an adult, then he has serious social issues. He may work, where people think he's a weirdo, and avoid him, he may sponge off his parents or be 'looking for work', which means he blames everyone for his problems. Except himself.
Most people who are out of work are nothing like the stereotype; most want to work, and gain their self respect through work and being part of the world; but the troll IS the stereotype whining scrounger, to whom the world owes a living.

Almost every troll is male; I don't know why this is.

The troll has few social skills, and most have never had a girlfriend, many never will.

There's a clear pattern among trolls; they are much more likely to ignore posts known to be from women. And when they do respond to women, they are much more likely to be brief, abusive, condescending and patronising.

This is almost certainly more due to fear than misogyny - they just don't know any women. Except Mom. But their attitude rather reduces their chances of reproducing, which is probably a good thing.

I do believe we will both get what we ask for. I think you know the same. Your real question should be strictly for yourself. Why do you want it all to end? I assure you, you'll get what you ask for.

That is why I am not an atheist. What you request in your beliefs, it sucks. IMO, worse than hell.

I was asking that question of Igor.

Purpose is a good answer. Although it covers a lot of territory.

A woman's or a child's smile,and their need for him, has kept many a man going doing things he didn't want to do, or were killing him. You have to look past the immediate and this life for that sort of thing. You don't get that from Topix atheism.

He did answer the question you poor imbecile. Much better than I did, as a matter of fact.

Are you afraid that someone's having a better time than you are?

I held my 6 month old granddaughter this past weekend, she already knows her purpose. She's a happy baby most of the time and someone cares enough about her to take care of her when she's cranky. She sat in my lap and laughed at the antics of the cat. It doesn't get much better than that.

You can enjoy your family, you can love your work, or just enjoy the sound of rain when you're warm and dry in your own bed. Not enough for you? Hey, go contribute to the cure of cancer or visit someone in the hospital....you know, something more noble sounding. Whatever floats your boat;0)

When I'm dead I won't enjoy life anymore, maybe I'll be grateful for surcease of pain....who knows how it will end? I'll stick around and find out.
