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.

"Huh?" is right.

All you offer are your opinions with no citations credible or otherwise to support them, and you don't come off as an impartial or knowledgeable source of information in this area.

We should be taking zero from the 1%. That's the point. Earn your fair share, the American way.
I wonder who promoted that idea to you.

How much do you think Bill Gates would have made if he had been born and educated in Cameroon? Forget that he would likely have be hypoliterate and had no access to computers. Suppose he overcame that, and then tried to develop and market his product in that infrastructure and economy? Do you still think that the American people are not entitled to even a percent of the profits from that success?

Lobby for your ilk to have a Christian/Catholic appreciation day. Now proceed in your backwards babbling.

For those that can't enjoy Christmas without Jesus.....well, perhaps you're out of touch.
When it comes to being altruistic, there's definitely no requirement for Jesus. However, people who need Jesus to be altruistic are, quite possibly, dicks.
Hi Khatru. Even without religion, we can still have the old:

Peace on Earth
Goodwill towards men

You've got it backwards. In fact, people that smoke only pot not only don't get lung disease, from "Study: Smoking Marijuana Not Linked with Lung Damage" at http://healthland.time.com/2012/01/10/study-s... , "Marijuana smokers performed better on tests of lung function compared to nonsmokers and cigarette smokers"
<quoted text>
Then perhaps you should stop looking down your nose at what you disparingly call "druggies." I've told you before that you're trusting the wrong people. You've bought into their self-serving paradigm, which profits from criminalizing pot and pushing tobacco. The carnage from each is staggering.
We really, really, RE
The only real gripe I have with pot is that it's usually in a mix with tobacco. After smoking this for years, you are addicted to cigarettes.

Well, that's what I found when I tried to quit.

I'm divided on it. The libertarian in me says that all illicit drugs should be decriminalized. I'd like to put that to the test and see how it works before I give it my firm endorsement. If the carnage is minimal, I'd prefer it to this cruel, unjust, and devastating War on Drugs, which probably causes much more damage than a more permissive policy.
I am considering alcohol prohibition as its subsequent reversal now. The damage done by prohibition far outweighed the damage done by whatever little alcoholism it prevented.
If they did that, it would either be a complete Wild Wild West with everyone dealing and using. Or else there would be plenty who didn't and life would go on the same.

To make something illegal or forbidden is to glamourize it.

They still do have prohibition of alcohol in some Middle Eastern countries.

I wonder if that's because there are not so many holy trollers. That Viking was a real joke, I certainly laughed at him.

Hi Rosa

Yes, they're good words and as a message they certainly aren't limited to any one religion.

All we now require is to settle down and put some Hunters and Collectors on.:-)
