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.

Are you sure? I did get some negative stuff from him, in response to a few posts I did a couple of days ago-- the negative was god-laced.
If he was being sarcastic or I misunderstood, then I will apologize.
I would swear I saw him post god-positive stuff the other day.
I don't recall posting to you at all.

<quoted text>Same dude. I don't take the blacks word that they are against anglo saxon genocide, so I don't vote for them. I mean, they're black, so obviously they want to get rid of all white people.
That's how life works, right?
No need to worry. I don't want to get rid of you. I just would never vote for one of you. Just like you would vote for a worm meat over a good soul bearing theist.

<quoted text>The chinese government does this to protect it's own power, not out of any desire to destroy religion in the name of atheism or any such nonsense. As blacklagoon said, china has a history of popular religious uprisings, and while I don't agree with persecuting a group of people to protect one's power, it is something that all governments are guilty of.
The stuff you deny, and then you wonder why I would not vote for one of you.

<quoted text>Luckily, we are moving past the days of religiously inspired social codes of conduct. Technically, we've shed most of the biblical moral rules long ago (stoning virgin's, etc) and are now just shedding the last bits of moral baggage.
You really crack me up. I would love to just drop you off in The Russian Federation, where you could be with like minded people. You'd be like a domestic pet released in the wild. Perhaps then you would get why we don't want your agenda here. And you know you slip onto ballets, and never break 5%, 5% ark ark humor. A atheist country is a bunch of savages fighting for a meal. Go ahead, marry a pretty woman from one of your utopias, then move in. See what happens.

<quoted text> Jesus was a man without sin and spoke uprightly. An atheist is just a an atheist but a dangerous atheist is one who was once religious. They know the scripture better than most and certainly have an agenda , biased to say the least.
Thanks to The Christian religion excepting any group of bone heads to nest under their tent. We now have Bibles that do call Jesus a zombie, and goes as far as saying you should not follow a zombie. The standard Christians have gone to make a dollar is sad. Due to some of the clergy that are bigot clergies, that are allowed to work in Florida, I am no longer a Christian. For many years I was a Christian in name only. I still do believe in the teachings of Jesus Christ, however as a whole, I think it is only one small part of The Big Picture.

Bongo, I think they are as they do believe they are. That is primates without souls. they admit this themselves, but find it offensive when soul having people accept them for their word on this issue. I love that they expect me to argue against this notion that they are sub human. Or funnier. I will get violent about it. As if I even have time to do such, if it was not against the law, to begin with.

He is such a marsh mellow, he thinks it's cool to insult people that disagree with him, then when you strike back you are a bigot. He seeks the politically correct fairy. Bunk him worm meat are not a minority. We don't agree with their agenda, and we accept them for what they, themselves tell us they are.

Come on, River, you know me.

I have no belief in the supernatural: no gods, other deities, witches, ghosts, hexes, astrology, Santa Claus, fairies, step-on-crack-break-mother's-b ack, nada.

I would call that hate-speech, no matter how "pure" your intentions.
Since you cannot show you **are** a Genuine Messenger from Godô?
I can only take you at your face value:**YOU** were intending to be the instrument of my torture.
Of course, I dismissed your threat as yet another empty promise.
But the fact remains?
YOU WERE WILLING TO SEE ME TORTURED TO SOOTHE YOUR EGO.
That's hate, bub.
Bob, there's a grey-boxer posting as just "Catcher". That's NOT this here Catcher-1.

You are scared of death, Timmy. It is an unknown to you. I did experience that check out line. This consciousness writing this post completely walked off the job. I was no longer Dave Nelson, but I was something else. Total wipeout of this existence on a conscious level. I woke up in a darkness far removed from here, and something I was hiding from. I had no religious belief. The closest I ever came prior to a spiritual or religious frame of mind was several years earlier when out of the blue while driving at work. I got the conscious idea an atomic bomb could explode 10 foot above my head and I would survive it. I survived over 20 tons at 40 mph in my very lap later.
My supreme being doesn't get jealous. It has no reason to. Nor does it have the sense of morality you wish to impose upon it. You see, you are the one stuck on the Christianity as written in a book. I see the stories as metaphorical, not as the absolutes you do.
As I said, you can't comprehend my perception of what it is. I can't tell you what it is, but I can tell you what it ain't. And that is whatever you think it is.
Whatever you say, dave. You're the smartest, most important human ever. You will overcome death through sheer force of will.
