Atheism requires as much faith as religion?

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. Full Story

Nearly 50%.
So I don't really think you're an authority on "Pluto's place", twart.

<quoted text>Yep. Tzarina is on a spamfest in a couple of groups. He has been posting the same cr*p repeatedly for quite a while, even after being soundly refuted. The posts about the Big Bang and the 'edge' of space show a *complete* lack of understanding of the fundamentals of the BB viewpoint. The others are just as bad.

Once again, there was no 'edge' to the BB expansion. The expansion occurs throughout space.
Poly such a way to talk about the guy that boxed you in.

You're still in that box. Does that piss you off that you and your science fail and can't get out of your box.

So you do the next atheist thing, insult the victor. Nothing new.

50%. LMFAO
What a dolt!
"Is Pluto sometimes closer to us than Neptune?
Because Pluto has an orbit around the sun which is very elliptical, there are times when it crosses Neptune's orbit and is actually closer to the sun than Neptune. This happened recently during a twenty year period from 1979 to 1999. For now, Pluto is back to being farther away from the sun than Neptune. It will be more than 230 years before Pluto and Neptune trade places again. Pluto slips inside of Neptune's orbit once every 248 Earth years for a period of twenty years."
That's less then 10%.

What a nut job.

<quoted text>There is no BB theory problem, where do you get the idea that there is a problem?

1/ Yes – wrong the time on earth is slightly different from the time on the sun.- There is no centre of the universe or rather everywhere is the centre of the universe.– It is now understood that each galaxy is formed around a giant black hole. Astronomers are currently studying the gas cloud reaction to the entity in the centre of our galaxy.

Everywhere science can show the universe is 13.7 billion years old according to the time base used on earth.

2/ Only weird if you don’t understand it, I suggest that you do some research on this topic before making yourself look even more foolish. The universe is around 46 billion light years across. Expansion is independent of the speed of light, space is expanding so nothing has violated the limit imposed by the speed of light

The CMB only needs to work with the age it is.

3/ This is your theory and nothing more, we have been here before and I have explained of the fundamental laws that govern this universe and how they did not exist (certainly as we understand them) at the beginning point of our universe. It seems that you have done the typical fundy and gone round in circles hoping for a different answer. Prior to the resolution of those laws it is unknown if time existed or not therefore how can you make a claim that nothing can exist without time, you make you own paradox without even understanding what you are doing. Oh wait a moment, is this another case of special pleading? Your babble stories don’t work with scientific understanding so you need to make BS up to cover your tracks.

Wrong, time is proof of time and the babble is evidence of folk stories and superstitions created by bronze age goat herders and escaped slaves
"There is no BB theory problem, where do you get the idea that there is a problem?"

Your right no problem with the theory at all. Of course it could never happen because just before the BB you MUST have time. Time existence breaks all the laws of physics. But your BB theory is solid. Except that the BB happened 13.7 billion years ago and it would take about 1 billion years for the universe to fall to the state where it could start producing stars and science has found a 14.8 billion year old star. Bit of a problem there. But the theory is sound as Myths goes.

So you are saying that God could not have forbidden slavery at that point, even just for Israel?
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?
I thought the whole point of giving the commandments was to say what was allowed and what was not. Clearly, slavery *was* allowed.
So?
And God approved of it, at least under certain proscriptions.
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?
No, we have contempt for the Bible because the Bible is an evil book. We simply point out that evil. It condemns itself with its immorality.
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>
No, we care about slavery in the first place.
And for those who don't? Why is yours more valid then theirs?
We care about humanity in the first place. That is *why* we condemn the Bible and the evil within it.
Moralizing atheists is both sickening and hypocritical. Why don't you just admit you hate a God you do not believe exists.

When one is pushed from the front, the "Bum" as you call it. Is the first thing that contacts the ground. That's not a obsession but gravity and the bio mechanics of the human body. You need to try harder Bob at being spiteful.

I agree but the lamppost as you identify it. Is really a strong tower. And we do lean on it from the inside.

Thank you for your input.[Tipping hat]
