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.

Why is that the default?
Because it is: the burden of proof is **always** on the person making the positive claim.

You made such a claim: you claim "god is real".

PROVE IT.

If you cannot?

Your claim is FALSE.

Since, god is either REAL or NOT REAL?

If your claim is FALSE (as proven by your lack of proof)

Then god must not be real-- BY DEFAULT.

My God can give you a new heart tomorrow.
One that can know Him.
If you we're willing.
Lie.

I was more than willing for 40 years.

Your god?

Never bothered to show up-- he cannot.

Due to a severe lack of existence.

What moral standard are you using to judge Him?
Human.

And?

I would expect an actual **GOD** to **SURPASS** that with flying colors.

As a minimum standard.

Does your bible-god pass the HUMAN standard?

No.

Not even close: your god?

Accepts SLAVERY as being FINE.

Fail.

YOUR GOD ISN'T EVEN AS MORAL AS MERE HUMANS.

Your god?

Correct: your god cannot exist, if free will is real.

Atheism is a position that claims a truth.
This pretended neutrality fools no one.
You are pre committed to deny God with no rational reason for doing so.
AntiUnicornism is a position that claims a truth.

You are pre-committed to deny Unicorns with no rational reason for doing so.

Shame on you and your war on Unicorns!

So explain how the bible explicitly predicts the exact point in time if Christ's death.
If your claim is true, you will be able to do that with ease.
The bible does not speak of Jesus, in the old testament.

1) the name is wrong
2) the town is wrong
3) the parental lineage is wrong

Those are 3 damning failures proving Jesus could never have been the Jewish messiah.

And that was without even trying....

Actually? The numbers range about 80-90% not-religious among scientists.

My statement stands:**most** scientists are not religious.

The God you worship murders little babies and destroys unborn fetuses. He also endorses slavery and encourages rape. My moral standards are much higher than your Gods. As a matter of fact, my mol standards are higher than just about everyone in the bible. Your most likely are also.

That is correct, for two very good reason. First, How can it be free will when you must fear the consequences? That is completely in conflict with the definition of "free." I hold a gun to your head and say you have free will to give me your wallet or not. But if you don't I'll kill you. Free will means you give or receive something without expectation of return. Second, your God is said to be omnipotent, he knows all, can see the future, knows what will happen in the future, can see exactly what you are going to do. He can see the pathway you have taken. You come to a fork in the road and think you have free will to decide whether to go right or left, God however already knows what direction you chose, you CANNOT chose any other direction other that what God has chosen for you. That is unless you want to say that God cannot see into the future and does NOT know which pathway you will take. There is no such thing as "free will" just like there is no such thing and your God.

Very interesting. I posted over a year ago and some rotten Topix administrators with a moniker "Silent Assassins" sent viruses to me. Fortunately, I have excellent protection. I tell you, watch out for the rats in here. They learned my IP address. That is the only way they could have attacked me. I know it was them because it occurred about 5 min after my post that upset them. I am a freethinker and they could not handle it. Another free thinker I know that was attacked was Pomona Atheist. Remember him? Many christians hated him and they shut him down. I am only here to correct irrational thinking, which to me is scarey. I believe in Freedom of Expression, but religious folk abhor us. Just sayin'.

Right!?!?! This pisses me right off. The first person that ever said this to me, I turned right around and told them to dial up their so called heaven and tell my mom that this is why she died of cancer. Her prayers weren't good enough.... Then I got the good ole generational sin bullshit speech. I wonder how else a person is supposed to interpret "ASK AND YE SHALL RECEIVE." !!!! blargh...~calm now~ Sorry... hope you didn't mind my little blow up.:)
