Atheism requires as much faith as religion?

Full story: Webbunny tumblelog

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.

You are not going to answer the questions? Why am I not surprised?

I have a new picture now. I like it better than the old one. You understand that the way I perceive people here affects the way I interact with them, right?
Of course.

I expect we all do that.

You use these two words an awful lot,ďmental illness.Ē

So what were you diagnosed with? ASD?

Good question.

As your bible claims.
Answer his question Bob, delve deep into your vast knowledge base. Impress the hell out of us. Donít dance around it but a real straight forward answer.

If I had to write Genesis it would go like this,ďIn the beginning was Bob, then there was nothing.Ē

Because nothing is what you deliver when asked a really straight forward question.

Yet?
Your inept and feeble godling cannot manage to muster up sufficient god-juice to fix dying babies all over the world.
Why?
Nor can your uncaring god prevent kids from being abused by Men Of Godô on a daily basis.
Why?
Nor is your god able to see that enough rainfall happens in parts of the world, so that many children starve to death-- needlessly, if there had been enough rain.
Why?
Apparently your little personal god only sees fit to make the occasional miracle...
.... just and **only** for your **personal** benefit.
Why?
Why?

Why would a 35 year old male fall in love with a 14 year old girl?

Now that would be a real good question for you to answer Bob.

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.

Oh I too once though we were the aliens.. on the moon, and mars.
But then came the realization.
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.
