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.

I donít see God the same as you. He has been very kind and generous to my family and myself. I have been blessed beyond measure. He is my savior and my God and in him do I trust forever and ever.
We have the same rights to express our thoughts freely, too. It's not a one way street.

My family has also been fortunate beyond reasonable expectations. No god required.

You are more than welcome to worship him, but really, you make your god sound more like a lucky rabbit's foot than an omnipotent deity.

Just saying.

I haven't noticed any like that in other accounts of creation.
Smooth lies work better. Ask any politician.
The Torah is a work of men, translated and handed down from generation to generation. Most Jewish theologians admit this. Only (certain)Christian denominations claim the Bible is perfect and without error (dictated by a Pope just like Limbo).

There was no steel or iron during the Bronze Age when the Torah was oral history. That was an 'embellishment" during the transfer to written texts long after the stories were first told.

The errors and contradictions show far more than that. That is why IMHO people who take "The Bible" as the "Perfect Word of God" miss the entire (inspired) point of the various texts it contains.

Sharing a post I just put up in 2 other forums due to related themes with this forum.

Here's a real gem from this month! Wonder why this story isn't getting much attention (or is it?). Sounds very intriguing and actually may well be true.. at least after first thought.
Link:
http://www.bubblews.com/news/1298334-scholars...
.
My cut and pasting begins here:
.
Two historians, American Joseph Atwill and the UKís Kenneth Humphreys, will hold a symposium in London on Oct. 19, at which, they say, theyíll present new evidence that Jesus Christ never existed and that Christianity and the Gospels are fabrications invented by Roman Caesars of the first century.
.
The two scholars claim the plot was conceived as a means to redirect violent Jewish revolt against Roman authority into a peaceful (thereby ineffectual) movement, designed to control the hearts and minds of the Jewish population, and subverting rebellion against Rome without employing increasingly resource-draining military and political tactics.
.
And, they claim, it worked brilliantly then and continues to do so.
.
What could be the motivation of Joseph Atwill and Kenneth Humphreys?

Letís see, hmmmm, could it be ticket sales?

Book sales perhaps?

These are two smart men that have tapped into the money by pulling a grand con. I say give them two thumbs up and I hope they rake in the cash.

They have figured it out that Atheist will believe just about anything. Not only that but these Atheist have lots of money for the taking. Itís like taking candy from a baby. Easy money.

Be sure to buy their books and send them money. And remember be a cheerful giver, lol.

Water: liquid, solid and gas

Water is a liquid.
When it freezes it is ice.
Ice is solid water.
When water gets hot it turns into vapour.
We call it steam, and it is a gas.

We can see water in three different ways: liquid, solid, gas.

Eagle, I'm signing off for the night.

But tomorrow you and I have to talk about your GAY parade comment.

So start thinking about it.

You are asking me whatís up with the Gay Pride Parade statement?

I donít participate in Gay Pride Parades but I also donít support KKK marches & rallies or other groups that are outside my personal beliefs.

But I do recognize individuals have rights of freedom of speech and the right to peacefully assemble.

That doesn't mean I have to support what they do or what they believe.

That's especially remarkable given your standards for belief, which allow you to believe whatever you choose, or its opposite.

Eagle, you have the mind of a child. You are not able to process information given to you, especially when it involves science in any way, much like a child. However, unlike a child, you ignore or reject factual information, that is a sure sign of some serious mental disorder. You are unable to make logical correlations, as in your feeble attempt to make a correlation between Japanese tsunami debris float in the Pacific and a year long voyage of a 400 foot wooden boat loaded with tons of animals and supplies, just shear stupidity.

I am done trying to have any meaningful conversation with you. I can carry on a conversation with a child for about 20 seconds, with you, about half that. You'll see no more replies from me, Good luck with your severe delusions!!!

Doubtful... he probably thinks that "cold" is a thing.

Just as he no doubt thinks "dark" is a thing, too-- and that you could create a "dark bulb" to "push away the light with dark"....

....!!!

Amazing!

The authors of your bible were basically **ignorant** of the above.

How **about** that-- they [bible-writers] were dumber than a modern 5 year old...!
