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.

According to our resident Atheist here on Topix. Atheism is the lack of belief in deities. If so animals are Atheist.

That would mean a cow is an Atheist and same goes for vegetables.

So when an Atheist sets down to have a meal, he/she is partaking in cannibalism? Eating another Atheist?

Iím just trying to make sense of it all. It just sounds so sick.

Cannibalism is eating your own species, it may include eating a subspecies. Now ask yourself , Eagle are you a cow or a vegetable?
I'm guessing you're a mineral.

If we do not encounter or find no sentient living owners, then we can claim it as our own.

So far we own the whole universe.

We will only become alien , when we actually meet one.

Well Iím just going here with what I have been told. Yes, I know it sounds ridiculous but this is what Atheist are saying. Cows and vegetables donít believe in deities so that makes them an Atheist according to Atheist.

So anytime an Atheist eats he/she is involved in eating another Atheist. Maybe for the sake of sanity Animals, vegetables and infants are not Atheist.

I donít see how another Atheist could eat and digest another Atheist.

You are a bit older than me. I was born in the mid 50ís. But retired after I was completely vested in my company retirement after working 32 years. I spent that 32 years working with specialty chemicals. Then I went on and worked a few months as a Police Dispatcher.
Presently I help with a family business that started in January. On the Social Security issue, you did indeed work for those benefits. You deserve them and that is what it was intended for.
I think thatís the most I have ever heard you say about yourself. Actually I have never seen God either. But as I stated earlier I know without any doubt heís real. I know thereís a disconnect in you understanding that statement. Thereís a void of understanding.
I have seen him do miracles that were so astonishing that I just canít share them with you. If I told you would swear I was lying. I seen them with my own eyes. Not every day did I see miracles but I have seen a few over the years.
We are two aged men with different backgrounds and experiences. I donít think youíre insane or crazy but you just simply never have reached out or seriously searched for God. Itís probably going to remain that way until you cross over to the other side.
I don't want to burden you with my family horror stories, but they are the exact reason that "I know there is no biblical god". OK, aliens may abound, but neither your or I, know of their presence or impresence. I recognize the god of abraham as a fairy tale, until you provide some proof. Like I said, if I were to tell you my horrors that were never answered by any god, you would understand my position. When I do pass, trust me: If there is any god, it had better be someone powerful, otherwise, I will knock it out in one punch.

I became a beliver in Atheism as a child.I was born in a religious family and read the Bible and was sent to bible school. But that did not mean that every thing I read by mankind is true.Take a look at the prison population of the world we have good people and bad. Religious people and non-religious people are in there for sum evil crime.And this something that is not confine to just the acts of man.

Unfortunately for you, philosophical reasoning does not affect the
tree of life as far as species. Ideological concepts do not cross
a physiological barrier. Alike concepts held in the brain do not make a being the same species.

I like corn, Deer like corn...eating deer is not cannibalism.

But even you have to know that..but maybe not.

I knew that and you could never wreck my day, Mac :)

I've always been the youngest one here and I know how some people view that. "Stupid little girl", "How could you know?", "Your views don't really matter".

It's never been about age. It's about perception.

It's about ingredients.

Ohhh. I understand now. So you're saying that we send the robots to mars, who then time travel back to the present, who are actually the robot greys that we are seeing now and certainly exist and are in no way a sort of mass delusion? Right? We created the aliens!

The alien overlords chuckle at your claimed ownership of the entire universe. They abandoned such archaic concepts eons ago in the pursuit of a more egalitarian society. They're nice overlords.

Possession is 9/10ths of the law.

In short order I own it.

Aliens are scarcely in disagreement.
