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.

Would "religion has no value add for science" be more accurate?

I have to admit, paying any attention to your post here did make me look stupid.

I would say no, and suggest you do some reading. I could understand not liking religion, I, myself am a Pagan. You have to stay true to the discussion. Religion itself is a science. Throughout the years well educated people have gathered, and researched for advancement. I find it od to read people post, that have such a scornful hatred for religion. I would say it was blinding them, but I don't have that high of an opinion for these haters. I think they are idiots that think they know everything. The belief in knowing everything is a common cause of being stupid.

Religitards are most likely to think they have all the answers, which is a common cause of being stupid.

The above? Is not an argument, fact or point.

Just whining and belittling of the poster instead.

It's your only move, it seems.

Yes... we know you have zero counter-argument here.

My point is valid: religion is the **opposite** of science.

Science seeks to **understand** the universe.

Religion seeks to re-fabricate it in it's wish-fulfillment image-- and will **deny** any and all facts that contradict religion's claims.

The two cannot co-exist peacefully-- religion will **always** be forced to **deny** science, as science proves over and over, that religion is just a big lie.

Nor does it support you in any way. Naturally.

Yes... he does not "do" arguments.

The entirety of his posting-style is to belittle, name-call and scream "IS NOT" over and over.

Is anything in the above provable or an actual... argument?

No?

The video is bullshit.

It's very first point? Wrong-- it's the same bullshit "you cannot create something from nothing" non-argument.

The Big Bang does not **claim** "something from nothing".

That is a strawman religious bullshit ploy-- and it IGNORES a fatal flaw:

From whence came their god, if you cannot make something from nothing?

If they can excuse their god as "always was" then so can we-- the universe always was in one shape or another.

The video it bullshit-- just like you.

You are confused about the difference between obedience to men and obedience to a deity.
You are also confused about compassion. You have too many morality issues to be a truly objective scientist. You observe and measure by your own yardstick. It isn't calibrated to the greater reality.
How can anyone get confused about the definition of compassion????

You probably think that is a witty question to ask. That is something you would have to ask yourself, not me. You are the one stuck on a god working that way, I'm not. Perhaps you are use to hearing voices, I myself would never trust a voice in my head.

I will ask you a question. If you had an adult son and you were out with him, and he got into an altercation with someone, would you kill him if he pulled a knife or gun with the intent of killing that other person just out of anger? There is no threat to his life. Would you kill your own to protect another human being?

You live a sad little narrow-minded life-- a wasted one.
