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 worship yourself.
Worshipping one man, or man-child in your case, is enough.
I don't worship, period.

And don't start playing word games.

If you do, I'm going get into one of the two cars that I worship, and take the 91 out to Riverside, and shoot two of your chickens until they're dead.

We'll see if they can stand their ground.

There's the bias. You believe that Plato left books. For all you know, they weren't written by him, just attributed to him.
There's more evidence that Jesus the man existed than Plato the man.
My question is, why would a person so easily believe one but not the other?
Jesus was just a man?

Good to know.

Lol, are you serious? God got tired? I guess that's why he rested on the seventh day too. God felt pain? What emotional pain? Maybe god needs a psychologist. God grew in its understanding? I thought god was supposed to be all knowing. Why would he need to grow in his understanding?
Why would he go to the trouble of creating something if there wasn't something he felt he needed to create it for?

Gods don't have to perfect, or even all knowing. They are higher up the food chain and pecking order than you.

The anniversary of JFKs death is just in a few days. Which brings to mind why did Lee Harvey Oswald kill the President? We know he was a communist sympathizer. And believed in Marxism. Nowhere could I find where he was a man of religious faith.

Isolated and full of hate. He became an assassin by opportunity. I personally believe he was an Atheist. That doesnt mean all Atheist are assassins. Nor does it imply all ex Marines are murders of their Commander in Chief.

But it does tell us how extreme and dangerous some people can be. I was a child living in Glendale Arizona. The news came over the intercom that day. All us school kids gathered outside and watched as our flag was dropped to half mast.

I don't assert that there is no god, but I call myself an atheist because I am not a theist. Is that OK with you?
<quoted text>
I'm a real atheist, and intend to spend a fair amount of time here if the conversation remains sufficiently stimulating. Is that OK?
Its all good and ok, im not disturbed by it. Some folks maintain there is no diety or possibility of one. You still fit the atheist moniker but maintain a diety is possible and upon its appearance youll change your mind.

God played with his dinosaurs for neary 180 million years. Then he trashed them. Gods are fickle.

Your writing is getting and more absurd. Please, don't try to be clever...

The reason such an explanation does not apply to usage of the term "atheism" is that we can trace the history of the attempt to dilute the term for rhetorical purposes. An effort to change the meaning of a term, which applies to millions, and whose meaning is clearly understood, so as to service an agenda of one side in a controversy, is far from the innocent evolution of language you pretend.

Don't try to kid me.
Who could kid you? You and you alone understand this atheism semantic conspiracy, and it will be you that saves the world from bad usage.

Well that's strange.
Atheists don't understand God or Scripture.
Imagine that.
I am hoping you are not suggesting that believers DO understand 'God' or 'Scripture'. The 40,000 or so different denominations and sects within Christianity, plus the 2 billion or so differing individual opinions amongst all claimed Christians would tend to suggest that there is not much understanding going on.

The beauty of building a belief on totally 100% unproven stories is that it gives everyone the freedom to make up whatever they want in each interpretation.
