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.

Christianity cannot erase man's need for pleasure, nor can it eradicate the various sources of pleasure. What it can do, however, and what it has been extremely effective in accomplishing, is to inculcate guilt in connection
with pleasure. The pursuit of pleasure, when accompanied by guilt, becomes a means of perpetuating chronic guilt, and this serves to reinforce one's dependence on God.

Christianity, with some exceptions, has never explicitly advocated human misery; it prefers instead to speak of sacrifices in this life so that benefits may be garnered in the life to come. One invests in this life, so to speak, and collects interest in the next. Fortunately for Christianity, the dead cannot return for a refund.

Through inculcating the notion that sacrifice is a virtue, Christianity has succeeded in convincing many people that misery incurred through sacrifice is a mark of virtue. Pain becomes the insignia of morality - and conversely, pleasure becomes the insignia of immorality. Christianity, therefore, does not say, "Go forth and be miserable". Rather, it says, "Go forth and practice the virtue of self-sacrifice".

In practical terms, these commands are identical.

In exchange for obedience, Christianity promises salvation in an afterlife; but in order to elicit obedience through this promise, Christianity must convince men that they need salvation, that there is something to be saved from.

Christianity has nothing to offer a happy man living in a natural, intelligible universe.

If Christianity is to gain a motivational foothold, it must declare war on earthly pleasure and happiness, and this, historically, has been its precise course of action. In the eyes of Christianity, man is sinful and helpless in the face of God, and is potential fuel for the flames of hell. Just as Christianity must destroy reason before it can introduce faith, so it must destroy happiness before it can introduce salvation.

BOEHNER: OBAMA STUBBORNLY REFUSING TO END CRISIS I CREATED

WASHINGTON (The Borowitz Report)—Speaker of the House John Boehner (R-Ohio) said that he was disappointed after meeting with President Obama at the White House on Wednesday afternoon, telling reporters,“The President is stubbornly refusing to end the crisis I created.”

“Government is about teamwork,” Mr. Boehner continued.“I’ve done my part by putting together an entirely optional crisis that has shut down the government and will throw thousands out of work. Now it’s up to the President to do his part by ending it.”

Mr. Boehner said that he was “flabbergasted” that the President was looking to him to bring the current government shutdown to an end:“So after doing all of the hard work to push the country to the brink, I’m supposed to pull it back, too? How about you pitching in a little, Mr. President?”

The House Speaker said that he hoped he did not have to manufacture another entirely avoidable crisis over the debt ceiling in order to stir the President to action.“Quite frankly, orchestrating these unnecessary stalemates takes a lot of energy and I could really use a rest,” he said.

But Mr. Boehner seemed pessimistic that the President “got the message.”

“Because of my actions, thousands of federal workers have already been furloughed,” he said.“How many more people do I have to throw out on the street before the President wakes up?”

I think it's just you, thinking that people are thinking that about you.
I'm not thinking that, and I don't think most others are either.
Those are all real words that have been typed to me, Catcher1. Not necessarily on this thread but on others. I understand. I came to Topix when I was 17. Old people don't like being schooled by a teenager. They don't like it at all. Even though I'm not a teenager anymore, I'm still viewed as one.

I like young people too. At 5'8" I'm as tall as I'm going to get. I tower over little children.

My cousins love it when I take my leg off and make it move with my phone app. It has a chip in it.

You'll be a very good grandfather. I was gonna say great grandfather but that didn't sound right :)

You’re at peace with yourself. This is something that I’ve noticed. A person at peace with themselves is more social and pleasant than one who’s not. I always saw you as someone in their 20 or 30’s.

That’s a compliment to you because you’re very mature in your thoughts and demeanor. You belong here and hope you always stay.[Tipping Hat].

Thank you Eagle 12.

I'm vegan but my girlfriend eats meat. She was hungry and I was driving so we went to an Arbys drive through. I ordered whatever meat sandwich, I can't remember the name of it now, that she wanted and the guy who was talking to me through the giant meat eating menu sign repeated the order and told me how much it would cost. He said, "Is there anything else"? I said, "Thank you so much, that will be all".

When I drove to the window, he took my money and said, "You are the most polite person I've met this week. Thank you for that".

I said, "Awww thank you. Now where is my MEAT SANDWICH YOU MEAT SERVING MTHFR?"

Then I smiled.

I see you are both disgusting and bitter.

I'm so sorry for your loss (of sanity).

You hypocrite.

Welcome to Hell:

Matthew 5:22

King James Version (KJV)
... but whosoever shall say, Thou fool, shall be in danger of hell fire.

New International Version
... And anyone who says,'You fool!' will be in danger of the fire of hell.

New Living Translation
... And if you curse someone, you are in danger of the fires of hell.

English Standard Version
... and whoever says,‘You fool!’ will be liable to the hell of fire.

New American Standard Bible
... and whoever says,'You fool,' shall be guilty enough to go into the fiery hell.

He'll die with my respect. Even if he doesn't know that, it doesn't matter.

When you sit down in a restaurant, you'll be thinking of my foot. My toenails are red today. Italian?

And you don't think you're being ignorant. I see both sides being ignorant. Atheists just can't prove how earth came from nothing, and Christians can't prove God is real.
But hey, no one cares who's ignorant and atheists are like "Oh the earth came from nothing. I mean how intelligent is that.
I know exactly how the earth was formed, as do most people. There is irrefutable evidence that you can find at any college or university, any geological institute (and many other scientific institutes) and most museums, even the internet - if only you chose to educate yourself but hey, that means learning and learning ain’t what you do – right?

But hey no one cares that ignorant godbots claim goddidt by magic out of nothing one Wednesday afternoon in October 6000 years ago with absolutely no evidence so they guess based on the word of bronze age goat herders and escaped slaves.

And as for god not being real, how about E=MC^2 which shows that no god as described in Revelation 19:6 (KJV) can exist in this universe at the same time as matter, and you are matter.
