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.

Very weak response.
You don't know if "gravity"exists, either. Something makes you stick to the chair, though.
And after Thousands of years of arguments the consensus is one does exists. It even made "gravity".
In other words. You don't know.

Of course she would. Just like the kid sticks the fork in the socket. It's called disobedience. It can be called rebellion.
What it cannot be called is what you are calling it.
Victimhood runs rampant among the ranks of the Topix atheist.

Ever notice the paranoia they all express?

There should be a psychological study of their rants.

In my opinion, virtually nobody but a believer could write a post like this. Who else would blame the carcinogenicity of asbestos on scientists, or describe a single disease responsible for a small fraction of the total number of deaths each year as if it were a holocaust? You seem to be taking both apologetics and daytime TV lawyer ads too seriously,

You have a tendency to the woo woo, don't you? That magic squares and stuff is the same as neo-paganism. Mistaken resurrection of ancient knowledge and practices without the understanding of what they were and entailed.

The church has made a lot of enemies. It has fired upon many of us, especially gays and atheists. I've explained why I feel that such people have not just a right. but a duty, to fire back.

You made quite an assumption and assertion there.
Eve had no way to discern between the serpent and God?
Uh, wilderide, whose Garden was it?
Who said don't eat it?
Don't forget the serpent was subservient to Adam and Eve in the hierarchy established by God in that locale. In fact, Adam and Eve were the designated caretakers of the place.
So, if you Daddy says don't stick the fork in the outlet and your little brother, or the family dog, says it is OK, go ahead, it will be Daddy's fault?
You have some strange perceptions of maturity and responsibilities.

Yes and I told you posting in topix make you look stupid.
But you did anyway.

Geomancy (Greek: "earth divination") is a method of divination that interprets markings on the ground or the patterns formed by tossed handfuls of soil, rocks, or sand. The most prevalent form of divinatory geomancy involves interpreting a series of 16 figures formed by a randomized process that involves recursion followed by analyzing them, often augmented with astrological interpretations.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Geomancy

A geomancer practices a form of magic known as geomancy. Geomancy is a practice of divination and elemental combat native to several humanoid races of Azeroth. It is similar to shamanism in that disciples of geomancy wield the powers of the earth and a lust of knowledge towards the secrets of the earths spirits.

Many races and factions on Azeroth have geomancers, including pandaren, kobolds, quilboar (including the Death's Head group), troggs, the Grimtotem clan of tauren, and even the Twilight's Hammer clan.

Geomancy is a non-damaging Fairy-type move introduced in Generation VI. It is the signature move of Xerneas.

Whiny baby candyassed Topix atheists.

They wanna go out and be grownups and do what they want, but they scream if God doesn't wipe their little asses for them, kiss their booboos, and keep the meanies away.

Oh, yeah. That is just the type you want in an eternal afterlife.

But a phrase often used to describe Adam and Eve before the Fall is that they were like babes. And you don't hand out strict punishment to babes, because they don't know what is right or wrong.
But this God of yours smacked them down...hard.
As for your last sentence...precisely. Eve was an unwitting victim. At the time of the "crime" she didn't know any better. And God delivered a smack-down anyway. So, yes, he was the cruel overlord.
The only reason you interpret it differently is that is how you have always been taught to read it, and you have been taught never to question it. Sad, really.
Correct. God threw a rattlesnake in the crib then beat the babies for being bitten.

Such a loving parental figure. No wonder some Chritians think beating a baby is justifiable.

<quoted text>You make some very good points and made a good illustration However I would disagree in one regard If someone does not address the person but the act, does not single out a sin, and understands they are also a sinner and their sins are not 'better' than I don't think they are a bigot At that point it simply is a difference in opinion regarding what they consider moral when it comes to sexual acts. Someone may not agree with them. They may not agree with their reasoning. But it still would be simply a difference of opinion at that point in my opinion But again, that is only if a person is not the target, if an act is not singled out, and the judging is not hypocritical But I do agree that bigotry can easily be dressed up as religious belief
OK. Thanks for that. But how do you separate a person's nature from the person? The acts to which you refer are not independent of the person.

It certainly wasn't religion that caused its widespread use starting in the late 1800's.

It was science.

Uh huh.

You didn't read my last post on the subject yet, or further down in wiki.

You are kind of slow, scar.

Masons were geomancers. As were the pyramid builders and others. Feng shui is also geomancy.

It is understand how energy and forces work and flow. Tuned macroelectronic circuits.

Get your nose out of a book and get some magnets and string.
