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.

What proof do you have that people do not have souls?

Do you have scientific evidence to support your claim?

You have no evidence for your ugly monster-god's existence.

In fact?

Just the opposite: all the god-preventible evil in the world? Proves without a single doubt, your god isn't real.

There is **no** excuse you can come up with-- to explain this evil.

I know that **your** monster god isn't real.

That's clear enough.

The most **damning** proof of all (that your god is myth)?

You.

No god who gave a crap about it's reputation?

Would suffer the likes of YOU to represent it.

No god would: you are too stupid, for one.

You are too hateful, for another.

Yep.

When "absolution" is just a magic spell away?(Jewsus! Forgive me!, they say...)

Then there are no limits to the evil that a Genuine Christianô will do...

... the Dark Ages is ample proof of that.

Yes. See above.

Where is your proof that these soul thingys DO exist?

Hmmm?

Its stupid for you idiots to deny fossil evidence. Thats just one of the reasons why your cult is so full of sh*t.

<quoted text> You dodged my questions. What is wrong with slavery? I did not say anything about God. I want to know what is wrong with slavery in a world without God? In a world without God it is man who determines these things for their time period based on their circumstances? What is wrong with that?
<quoted text> So? <quoted text> God bashing? Will you blame the tooth fairy for cavities? Slavery was regulated for the benefit of the slave. To limit abuse. The actual institution is neutral. It was universal in the ancient world. Like i keep saying you atheists do not really care about slavery. You only mention it as it relates to Scripture. It is used a a basis to bash God and discredit Scripture. You only mention it in a narrow sense. Ignoring the fact it was universal and far more brutal in pagan cultures. Answer these questions.
1) If God approves of slavery then why did God liberate the Israelites from Egyptian slavery?
2) If God approves of slavery then why did Elisha liberate the children of the widow from debt slavery?
<quoted text> So you admit you have contempt for the Bible and believe it is evil. Under what objective basis do you determine what is and what is not evil? Why is your position any more valid than say Bart Ehrman who considers it probably one of the most important books in the history of the West? For an atheist to suggest evil in an objective sense is hypocritical since you have no real objective basis and your judgements is a valid as your opinion.
<quoted text>
<quoted text> And for those who don't? Why is yours more valid then theirs? <quoted text> Moralizing atheists is both sickening and hypocritical. Why don't you just admit you hate a God you do not believe exists.
Please keep your mental illness to yourself. We do not want to be infected by your stupidity and dishonesty.

Come back when you can grow some balls and prove your god, there's a good creationist troll.

Religion is an addiction, its symptoms are:
1. Lying about god so you can spend time on your cult.
2. Lying about your god some more so you can spend more time in your cult.
3. Hating people that don't believe in your religious cult's drug.
4. Hating people that stop people from getting hooked to your cult.
Part truth, for example that religion is addictive. If you followed the news tonight. A new app is being downloaded with the entire bible. Young people are downloading the app by the millions.

Some people do lie, ok, so that is partly true. Some people donít need to lie about their faith. So your statement has fabrication in it.

Again you are painting everyone with the same brush. Because you may see someone with a blue house. That doesnít mean every house in the city is blue. It also means not every house in the entire world is blue.

I think your problem goes beyond religion and is a result of your anti-social personality disorder. This kind of poison may have been caused by a traumatic event in your life. Itís really sad that you have morphed into a hatebot.

People like you needed a physiatrist or a therapist. You need healing in your mind. Iím not talking about religious healing but mental health healing and lots of it. But some reason you remained untreated apparently. Because your need to spew your toxic venom is continuous.

I have a soul. Just because you donít see it doesnít mean it doesnít exist. Thereíre people that carry certain diseases, they have no idea they're carrying it until it comes to the forefront. Like for example asbestoses.

Just because people donít think they have a disease doesnít mean anything. Just because you think people donít have a soul doesnít mean anything either. Millions of people carry HIV and donít know they have it. They feel perfectly fine.
And they donít see it.

Viewed objectively from outside church walls, the entire Biblical system fails to make a lick of sense when it is mistakenly interpreted literally, or near literally, as a cohesive set of divine revelations. Anyone who has ever read the Bible objectively can plainly see it is nothing even resembling a cohesive set of divine revelations ó certainly not from any omnicient, omnipresent, or even wise deity, anyway.

Wrong again.

It's OK. You'll be wrong until you die and then...you'll be wrong again.

I'm familiar with death. I worked in a morgue until recently. I've been to a funeral home. I understand what happens to dead people when live people need to mourn and parade past the dead body.

I find it odd.

Cool weather means business is slow.
So I'm starting to catch up on my vehicle maintenance.
Next week? I'll be replacing all the rotors (4 wheel disk brakes) and pads. The front ought to be easy, but the rears include an internal drum brake for parking, which may complicate things.
But I'm a good mechanic---not something I like particularly, but when you own your own business, you save money where you are able.
After that? When the weather finally goes and stays cold? I'll get busy again-- heater startup season.
Good follow up on your vehicle. I can't remember if you had a truck or a van. I had a neighbor in Houston that died because his brakes failed one day when he was trying to stop. He hit the back of a tractor trailer and was killed instantly.

Every year our family here in Illinois go to a local apple farm and pick apples. It has turned out to be a family tradition and the grandkids love it. But among the hundreds of apple trees one can always find a bad apple or two.

The good apples out number the bad ones. I hate to hear when people get ripped off in business deals. But I donít know if you have observed this but life has a way of going full circle. Those people that ripped you off are going to get ripped off themselves one day.
