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.

A Church = religion. A God = Theist. You can have a religion without a God.
On the contrary... there are people who say that they are atheists who have decided to have a building that they call a church. That does not make atheism a religion, that means that the people who are wanting to have an atheist church have ignored the definition of religion and decided to do whatever it is that they want to do. No different than christian's making up their own rules, and branching off from Catholic, to church of christ, to baptist. The problem is that the definition of religion is completely contradictory to the definition of Atheism so anyone who tries to say that atheism is a religion is being clearly dishonest.

Atheism is still not a religion, try as much as you might to lie about it.
It just shows how deep your brainwashing has gone, that you cannot accept atheism's own definition of itself - its not a religion.
Why they can't understand this is beyond me.......the A means..NOT as in Amoral, NOT Moral...Asymmetrical.......NOT symmetrical.....Atheist....NOT theists.

Being an Atheist involves one position and one only. A lack of belief in any God or Gods. Atheists can be Republicans, Democrats, Green Party, conservatives, radicals, pro-life, and come from every walk of life. The ONLY thing Atheists have in common is their skepticism when it comes to a belief in God.

Theist..........Belief in God

Atheist.........lack of belief in God.

They can attempt to make more out of it that there is, but it just frames them as desperate, delusional, and illogical moonbats.

<quoted text>I don't understand why one of the 10 commandments didn't deal with gullibility. "Thou shalt NOT be Gullible."
Come to think of it there is no commandment about Rape of child abuse, but the first four deal with this self-centered God of there's.
Lets replace those meaningless first 4, with:
1.) Thou shalt not be Gullible.
2.) Thou shalt commit rape.
3.) Thou shalt not abuse in anyway, a child.(oops, to bad Catholic priests)
4.) Thou shalt not be willfully ignorant. or....Thou shalt not let fear prevent you from understanding reality.
Four is a toss up, I like them both.
I like them all. How about, "Thou shall not let fear foster ignorance in that you are afraid of facing reality"....or some such;0)

I'm not death. Why would you be afraid of me?

Your fear is your own mortality. When that final check out time comes. When any and all ties to this world will cease absolutely. No tomorrow to wake up to. No plans,dreams, or hopes. No worry about bills, appointments, progeny or anything.

ALL GONE. Totally evaporated as you make that very last conscious thought

Even if you go into that imagined eternal sleep, you won't know it when you get there. A lot of final thoughts. They won't be good. You evolved to survive to the bitter end. It won't be like going to sleep for the night.

The thing is "you" may still exist and will be homeless, lost, and alone.

No Dave I'm afraid irl that you wouldn't be able to shup.
So I would be forced to stuff a sock in your mouth and tie you up.
I would then get in trouble, possibly getting thrown in jail.

Topix atheists.

They think it is great sport getting on here and telling theists they are stupid for believing in an afterlife, that they are weak and scared.

Whistling by the graveyard.

What a joke.

On them.

Those agonizing and terrifying final moments they will go through. Their tough guy consciousness will be the very first thing to go.

Oh, yeah, dying is just like going sheepy night night. Oh, here I go into my eternal sleep. It's been fun. I've done so much. If those theists only knew how easy it was.

For nothing.

You can wake up from nightmares.

Sheer shrieking terror no one but themselves will hear.

Momma Nature and evolution shuts your body off, then she shuts off your physical brain.

I'm not laughing at them.

Your gonna die, Aura. And you don't know when.

There are more than the religious preaching gloom and doom, but at least they preach a possible escape. Your group preaches "knowledge" is some sort of escape. It is to divert your from the reality of your physical existence WILL come to an end, and along with it, all of your thoughts and "living".

Blinders.

That "knowledge" won't do you a damn bit of good.

Look inside yourself for "knowledge".

Face your fears.

The atheists feel left out of getting fair time. They should worship their own way on their own day. The Devil is dancing with the prospect.
