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.

What's wrong with you?!
All of the above?

Are listed as **virtues** in most religions, if the situation is according to the god's will.

This is **especially** true of Genuine Christianity™

.. but also of islam.

See?
You cannot refute what I just said-- so you resort to a Jesus Attack.
Because, you know-- Jesus was so fond of personal attacks, right?
Right.

That means you are an atheist but could change to become an agnostic.
There's no such thing as an agnostic atheist. There can't be.
Are you this stupid, or did you take special stupid lessons?

I am an agnostic-atheist.

I have no faith in any gods: atheist.

I hold that you cannot know the entire universe, to determine if all possible god are real nor not: agnostic.

You really need to start asking the people who **call** themselves atheist, instead of going to the Liars For Jesus websites, who have no clue.

You like to dish it out-- but you refuse to take the same treatment in return?
Classic hypocrisy.
And you are also a hypocrite:
You **made** more than **one** blanket statement that was erroneous and insulting to the atheists herein.
Say it again: you are a **hypocrite**

That individuals are endowed with rights by virtue of each person being created by a creator, and thus those rights accrue to each person equally, regardless of status or birth. That is a religious concept
This sounds like what people that believe in a god came up with on their own without help from their religion. If you think that I am mistaken, can you refer me to the relevant bible passages that led those men to think those thoughts?

And do you think this affirms the value of religion or Christianity? Do you think that implies that we should try to protect the Christians' declining church from shrinking further? If not, is there any practical aspect to this argument? What do you think it implies if you are correct?

Agreed. It's pretty damn hard to be skeptical if something you don't believe in.
For example, I'm not skeptical about Santa.
I wonder if the agnostics here are...
You are **not** skeptical about Santa? So you **believe** in Santa?

Wow.. you **are** nuts.

So what?
You just admitted that you operate 100% in a state of self-delusion, unconnected to reality in any way.
Your final two sentences reveal this for certain--especially "no facts necessary"..
That says it all, right there:
"no facts necessary".
Indeed.
The fruits of a faith-based self-delusion-- no facts necessary.
.. by chance, did I offend you ??..

Take a deep breath and breath out sloooooowly, "evoluuuuuuuution."
Your like the little boy who stands in the middle of a field and shouts, "The Earth's not really turning, it's everything else in the sky." Older people come up to him and whisper, "thats not really true little boy, the Earth spins on it's axis." "NO it doesn't, claims the little boy, it's a lie, everything goes around the earth, the earth stands still." Finally the older more educated people just shrug their shoulders and move on, leaving the poor little boy in the middle of the field shouting his ridiculous claims, and the only ones listening are the animals and birds, the birds, if they could understand the rantings of this poor uneducated little boy, would only laugh as the adults had done, for even they know the Earth spins on its axis.

At some point the adults stop laughing and sorry and pity slowly spreads over their faces, realizing for the first time that there is simply no hope for this lost little boy who denies factual information, no hope whatsoever!!!

I'll pass, too. I think such a meeting would probably be boring. Atheism doesn't need a meeting. I've been to a few, and they weren't the best use of my time.

An hour posting on Topix is probably an hour better spent than at a meeting of unbelievers. The believers here are my only direct link to religion. And the unbelievers here are usually more articulate, informed and interesting than people can be in a meeting.
I've been to a few atheist meet-ups.

Sometimes, the time was well spent/well invested.

Most of the time it was just a gab-fest, without much direction.

That's okay too-- but hardly grounds to build a community around.

The truth is as you well know, simple atheism is too small an idea, too limited a scope to ever be much of anything apart from a default, starting point.

To really move forward, there **must** be a positive statement of intent, such as what Secular Humanism does.

And I've not located anything like that, hereabouts-- apart from a couple of Universal Unitarian groups. Alas, they are nice--but they love them their rituals and silliness.(**again** with the songs I do not like so very much).

I'm just not into ritual for ritual's sake-- and without a god to placate? What's the point anyway?

What? Are you just a sock-puppet for Butt Cheeks, now?

Sad.

The Buckster always runs away from anything I write-- all he **ever** does? Is use filthy names and such at me personally.

Much as I demonstrated above.

Only The Buckster isn't laughing-- he's serious.

I'm all about the laughs-- you True Believers™ are so funny.

That's what I'm asking you.
Evolution is an uncaring process.

Apparently?

So is your god... for your god's "handiwork" is indistinguishable from evolution...
