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.

DarkShorts, if you can't type other than in a phone text mode, stay the hell of this thread.

Your parents should have kicked your little ass and made you go to school.

And you're probably driving. Shit man.

Those that want to be employed by the government should be paid for it, shouldn't they?
Did my comment somehow lead to yours? Mine was about privatizing prisons.
A common delusion is that government does things better, aka, prisons and health care.(That's the linkage to your comments)

For health care, I can't speak for you, but I gather most doctors would not want to be a government employee. Those doctors who presently are employed by the government make less money, and have less desirable working conditions.

Patients who are forced to avail themselves of government health care don't like it either.

The care Indians get on reservations is not what most Americans aspire to.

The private sector is a far better arbiter of the exchange of money and services. This is irrefutable. There we find incentives for efficiency. In government, the incentives are perverse - they mask inefficiency for the primary goal of power and longevity.

I do not hate Giftmas (it's proper name).
Giftmas is all about getting together with your extended family, and reminding each other why we *are* a family.
And along the way, helping the keep the US economy running smoothly, as a nice by product of our activities.
I also like to attend the local productions of traditional Giftmas music-- many of which rival the professional productions of major cities-- only here in Tulsa? They admission is almost always free. Many productions of The Messiah, for example, have standing room only in attendance, so you arrive early to get a good seat.
I also often enjoy local productions of Charles Dickens classic A Christmas Carol-- another of my favorites.
The lights are pretty spectacular too-- I like driving around the city, looking at the lighted decorations.
It's especially amusing to see the juxtaposition of the fictional "manger scenes" alongside an equally fictional santa and his reindeer.
I do so enjoy the season of Giftmas.
But not so much, the **fake** whining of god-robots such as yourself.
Where you try to pretend you are being all "persecuted" and shyt.
Riiiiiight.

With all due respect, it's simply not safe living among too high a fraction of neighbors that think like that. Half of the country buys into that message. You trust the wrong people. You trust our enemies, yours and mine.
All the country used to think like that, and we prospered.

What is not safe is living among people who think the government should continue its relentless march to control more and more of our lives, under the guise of providing more and more protection and service.

The government is only force. It will take your money, your property, and if necessary, your life.

I cant cut a tree without a permit, cameras at almost every intersection mete out tickets by the ten thousnds a week, 85 dollars each. The cops are always ready to condescend and pummel you at the slightest question, the state is the biggest employer, they get guaranteed 8% even if the markets are down, full health and pension even to their second families after divorce. property tax of 30k a year, an average house 15k. Pay late its 12% intrest , higest electric rates in the world due to bungling. The list goes on and on. Im leaving when my youngest gets out of school.

Your fascination with people's azzholes is legendary.

And quite telling; obviously you have some serious latent homosexual tendencies here.

But that's okay... gay marriage is becoming available everywhere these days.

Right on the money, Bongo.

We cannot convince American people of the superiority of freedom any more.

They deserve what they get. And they are gonna' get it.

The people in the big election swing state of Ohio, I hear, are disappointed they are losing their health insurance.

Of course, everybody in the private sector is totally honest and would never cheat to improve profits.

And they don't need to be regulated, either, because they're all just so goddamned honest and ethical.

I realize this inquiry is a long shot.
a fart is a form of turd gas. after that marsmallow makes the long journey you gut pulls all the good stuff out including that wonderful smell but he gas has to be dealt with. i would suggest you hook a vacuum hose to your anus and the gas will be disposed of.

what does thsi have to do with a atheism being a religio?
