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.

Greg Sutton was closely inspecting the back legs of a planthopper nymph — a small green, flightless insect — when he noticed something odd.
There was a tiny row of bumps on the inside of each leg where it met the insect's body. The bumps looked just like the teeth of gears. And when the planthopper jumped, they acted like gears too — as teeth meshed, the legs turned in synchrony. Sutton says his finding, published this week in Science, is the first mechanical gear system ever observed in nature.

"So we were asking ourselves,'How in the world did they get such precise synchrony between the left and the right legs?' " Sutton says.
That led to a closer inspection of the nymph's anatomy and the discovery of the gears.

The discovery of synchronized mechanical gears on the planthopper insect found in the UK is problematic for Atheist. Solid evidence of intelligent design.

That is true, because you do know yourself. Tonight I may go into detail. I have a higher priority to do my exercising right now. I find it sad you would wish to persuade me from my belief in having a soul to your belief in not having a soul. Perhaps you don't.

I don't care if you think you have a soul or not. Believe whatever you want to. Your belief doesn't change facts or definitions or any of the things that religions teach that is false or that could and has been harmful to societies.

Your style of writing makes it difficult for me to understand what you're saying. If trying to explain to me, in detail, what you are trying to say will make you feel better then that's fine, but I'm pretty sure that I've established that it is your goal to do exactly what you accuse others of doing, and I feel no need to argue ;-)

I think The Online Atheist is a cult of mental illness.
* Poor Comprehension skills
* Lack of trust
* Over rating the issues of Atheism
* a very strong belief in the last word being correct because it is the final statement.
* repeating questions, even if they were answered.
* finding competition in beliefs
* Believing everyone that disagree with you is really a Christian
* admit being wrong
Nothing in the above list of insults is an actual... argument.

How very Jesus of you.

You see this soul topic is not your cup of tea, but according to studies on the topic, such is possible. Could we please keep it real, you're not big on the topic of Destiny and/or journey of souls. You're just trying to get me to change my views, and that won't happen. AND! I don't wish to change yours.

It is not that complicated, you do know yourself, I'll cover this more on my next answer to "I_see_you"
Apparently it is VERY complicated otherwise you wouldn't be dancing around instead of substantiating your claim. I asked a very simple straight forward question, about this soul thing, how you define it, simple. Everything I believe in I can define very easily, why are you having so much trouble with this extremely simple question?

Let me try again, maybe this time you'll have the courage to answer. How do you define this soul thing? How do you know that you have one and someone else does not? Now, and this is VERY important, what methodology do you use to determine if you or anyone else actually has a soul?

You are adamant that this soul thing exists, you seem to have infinite knowledge about it, yet you are unable, unwilling, or maybe just to embarrassed to share this knowledge, why is that? Is it perhaps that like your God thing, it too is something only imagined?

The difference of opinion is personal perception. Can't you see that you abuse those two words. I felt I was clear about it being a difference of opinion, not that the person I disagreed with was wrong. In such a case you "Prove it!" would be a fair statement.

How can you tell if someone is gullible?

Answer: give them "scientifical" -sounding words and they will easily believe bullshit, so long as there are "scientifical" words attached.

First, you silly person? You have to prove this idiocy known as "soul".

Until you do that? You are just a small, barking dog yapping at the heels of people smarter than you.

If you say so. My story is I just don't now have the time. I have mentioned books here for you to read. I'll be fair about this, I won't read your books about atheism, therefore how could I complain.
