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.

Does that sound like anybody we know?

They would be a lot more believable if they didn't quote others, or use the same terms and formulations in their arguments. It's like they agree with what their teacher said.

None of them are the slightest bit original in their argumentation. They are almost interchangeable."

If not, you have no frame of reference to dictate how it can or should go.
You're like a virgin teaching sex ed.
Sadly, I've never had a god experience.
I suck at attracting nonexistent entities... but I'll keep at it cuz that's what humans do, right?
Who needs common sense and logic when superstition and myth can get you the exact outcome you're looking for.

It is your opinion that God is nonexistent that prevents you from experiencing Him.

Utilize your common sense and logic. Tell me how that's got you convinced that God is nonexistent.

I do, and I am not alone. Torture rules out perfection, as does the need to be worshiped. I really can't imagine how anybody can feel otherwise.

LOL. I see you still haven't learned anything in all the time you have been on Topix. Still pushing this false definition of atheism.
Now I am not saying there are NO atheists that fit your description. What I will say is that of all the atheists I know, NONE of them fit it however. All the atheists I know hold to the position that there is no evidence for any god and therefore belief in any god is not warranted.
Now I realize the difference between this and what you think atheism is can be rather subtle, and you don't do subtle. But take my word on it, there is an important difference.
Ask yourself this...does it take faith for you to have a lack of belief in Vishnu?

It's their latent or active homosexuality driving their hatred of Christianity.

Gee, there are Christian churches they can go to that will even marry them if they find the right guy there.

Hello Ians. First time I've been here in quite a while.
I've been away from the atheist forum for nearly a year myself. I was posting on Why Should Jesus Love Me for most of 2013.

I recently came across a book suggested in Jerry Coyne's blog titled "The Authoritarians". The author is a social psychologist in Canada. The book is primarily about the far right wing of the Republican party, but also explores their connection, differences and similarities with fundamentalists. It was a moderately interesting read. I am sure you will notice many of the personality types he talks about from your experience on Topix. I certainly did.
You can find the free PDF here...

If you skip the notes, which are mostly there to provide greater technical detail, it is a pretty quick read.
Thanks. I may take a look. I'm already pretty convinced that the conservative politicians and their backers are a disease, but I've also become pretty apolitical.

Take care. Hope all is well with you.
BTW...I see you are still having to put up with Buck. How sad.
Buck and I haven't interacted in a year, so I find him easy to tolerate now. But I know that that is very much subject to change. He is already becoming more hostile and openly disrespectful, which is boring and unacceptable.

We'll see how long we can converse. I'll tolerate his idiosyncracies - even celebrate them with him - but not his abusive side. Unfortunately, we seem to be headed there.
