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

That is the Big Bang theory. I didn't read it all the way through, but have read elsewhere that it contracted a bit, which is when matter started forming. The initial heat was spread over the expanse and a condensation occured, then an expansion began again.
One more time. The heat happened before it could be produced with matter in its present form. Seed or activated component.
Before the cooling and separation of matter from expansion of the singularity, it is surmised that gravity was linked to the other forces. So in this state called "superforce" all, matter was in the form of energy. And The strong, weak, nuclear forces were combined with electromagnetic energy and gravity into one.
compressed infinitely into a infinitesimal or aka: singularity.
It isn't surmised in BBT what caused this or caused it to expand into the hot dense state of inflation, but starts recording it from this condition. But it is believed to be linked to zero point energy. But the initial heat is the superforce.

I don't c in this day and time how anyone can reasonablly believe in the rambling of the bible much less any other religion. People laugh at Muslims and a 100 virgins theory. Is a virgin having a baby more believable than that. Or a man named mosses made a boat big enough to hold to of all the creatures on the planet. We do not have a boat in existence today that could hold and supply enough food for that many animals plants and organisms. What a joke. All religion is to absurd to believe.
The only true belief is that of the native Americans. They believe in what is around us and to respect it. That being our mother earth and all its inhabitants. We came from nothing and we go to nothing. We as a people r not the soul beings of this planet we are merely part of it. It's all part of a flow of energy in life and death. There is a positive and a negative. It's a force unseen and unknown. All we need to do is take care of self family, community, nation, and most importantly our mother earth for it is not a part of us but we are all of it. We come from the earth and are returned to the earth and I believe the flow of life and energy will bring me home again.

Mother Earth was born and maintained by larger forces and transfers of energy. Yes, as physical beings we are formed from what formed her. Our intelligence as physical consciousnesses was passed on to us from her, and to her from other places. It is the awareness of this larger scheme that created religions, including modern cosmology, seeking the ultimate source.

There is nothing wrong with that, as it is natural. But we are all blinded by the light we were born into and made from. The answers will come from within and when the lights go out.

If the name is offensive to native Americans, and I owned the team, I would change it.
I'd hold a naming contest, season tickets to the winner.
We should try to get along with one another.
I think out of respect to the American Indians the owner should meet with the groups that have a concern. Itís a public relations issue that should be carefully dealt with.

Perhaps charitable contributions from the NFL Team to American Indian charities would be in order. The wrong action to take is to dig in and say youíre not going to change the name. That action comes across as being insensitive and uncaring.

The idea would be to embrace the American Indian community and not disregard it. Changing a Teams name is going to have cost associated with it. If a name change is ever decided it could happen 3 or 4 years into the future so money could be budgeted over several years for the expense.

Well said. I just find it amusing that every religion thinks that is it and everyone else is crazy. There is a larger scheme in what is our existence. I'm aware of that. Everyone thinks that no religion means that u have no soul purpose in life yet I am at most peace with life more than the people that suppositvly have religion.

You're very good at making unsupported claims, some would actually call them lies. Now lets see if you are a bold faced liar or not. PRODUCE the documentation or any other pertinent evidence that more Atheists are Atheists because of government policing than by choice. I challenge you to prove to all of us that you are not a liar. I do believe you are a cowardly liar with absolutely no proof for your ridiculous claim.
Atheism IS coming to America, it has been here for some time now and is growing among young people.

ow many atheists are there?
It depends on your definition of the term. Only between 1.5 and 4 percent of Americans admit to so-called "hard atheism," the conviction that no higher power exists. But a much larger share of the American public (19 percent) spurns organized religion in favor of a nondefined skepticism about faith. This group, sometimes collectively labeled the "Nones," is growing faster than any religious faith in the U.S. About two thirds of Nones say they are former believers; 24 percent are lapsed Catholics and 29 percent once identified with other Christian denominations. David Silverman, president of American Atheists, claims these Nones as members of his tribe. "If you don't have a belief in God, you're an atheist," he said. "It doesn't matter what you call yourself."
OPPS, here we come, are you ready????????

There is a difference between being spiritual and being religious. Religion is following the herd. So is being a Topix atheist and denial of the spiritual nature of man because they read it in a book. Both are blinded by the light and their pride.

I would think the creative force is big enough to accept many different beliefs of what it was, as long as it is acknowledged to exist.

I completely believe that a person can believe that religion has "saved" them. I do not agree, but it's their belief, not mine, and as long as they do not try to force me to believe it, or try to make laws that manipulate the way I choose to live then I don't care one bit.
