<quoted text>But it doesn't take faith to discount the superstitious campfire legends of ancient sheep kissers. It takes reason, hence Atheism is the opposite of religion by your own definitions.

I am especially proud of my volunteer work and donations to the humanist cause. Every year I go to the Philippines and spend thousands on food,water, clothing and medicine for the needy there. After a horrific typhoon and flooding there I was there amongst others 14 hours a day handing out supplies, giving life saving injections and treatments to those who lost their home. I stood and watched as homeless children lined up easily 3 miles deep for a package of crackers sandwich fruit and bottle of water. Unwanted children who were born because the Christian ran theocracy light government makes it nearly impossible for a woman to obtain birth control. My wife is in pre-med classes and wants to practice medicine there free to help those poor children. Here in the states I collect donations for running in marathons with the money going to children's charities and cancer or HIV awareness programs.
I have seen first hand time and time again the damage and heart breaking situations brought on by theists. The same theists who come crawling to us to help fix their mess! Oh but while we are fixing it are we thanked? Nope. We barely get the figurative broom in hand and they are shrieking at us for not believing in their imaginary friend.
Honor? I guess it is a relative term. The dozen of urban low income students I assist for free with their biology and pharmaceutical homework at two different colleges locally would probably say good ole KJ is an alright dude.
Now if coming on topix and giving the theists a little taste of backbone, the theists who try to intimidate and silence non believers because they think we should all be meek and humble and tolerate their abuse and repeated logical fallacies makes me vile, Without reason, Disrespectful, In someone's opinion? So be it, hmmm I will chuckle about how vile And disrespectful I am Friday at U of L for the 6 hours I am assisting the students there as a volunteer. Or perhaps this summer as I am passing out thousands of dollars worth of free medicine and other essentials trying to save some more homeless from dying. Yes I was walking by a group of people there and they were huddled together praying loudly and crying. I looked in and a young girl was on the ground dying of dehydration. Instead of getting her water and rushing her to the hospital they stood there holding hands and praying! I grabbed my cell phone and called for an ambulance and started trying to get her to drink. Slowly she sipped the water as the praying continued. The ambulance came after almost an hour and reluctantly took her to the hospital, the paramedic said she was good as dead and best leave it in the hands of Jesus same thing the crowd thought. She died 18 hours later. They didn't even know her name and couldn't figure it out.
I guess I'll somehow deal with being called disrespectful.

The reject who says we are made of god-stuff wants to bash science?
Let me explain something to you half wit, even if we don't have all the answers we don't assign those unknowns to an imaginary god. Instead we keep researching and progressing.
You ilk thought the world was square flat and rested on top of pillars.
<quoted text>
And scientists thought there were canals on Mars. As I said before, Professor Braindead....most of what we call science is no more than verified but inferential knowledge, grounded on unverifiable assumptions. "If this...then that" A likely story. Probably true, but by no means, certain. That sort of indecisiveness isn't going to change. One would be a fool to accept the doctrines of science as gospel truth. Why betray common sense for the sake of any theory, or doctrine? Why deny the truth of living experience out of deference to some body of nebulous scientific knowledge, no matter how complex, coherent and conclusive it might seem to be? I hurl this truth in the teeth of Copernicus, Laplace and Newton and all their dutiful, unquestioning, leaden eyed, successors...that daisy chain of white smocked clones. What's the gain in your campaign to rid the world of Judeo-Christian theology if you merely and meekly accept another vague ideology in its place?

I don't need to lie Bob. I'm just fine exposing you. Once again you made some claims but bring no evidence. Do you have an accountable position of belief that meets the evidentiary standard you hold others to. No. That's why you write about evidence, but never have any. Thanks for nothing!
You lie, even now. My first response to you, ansere4d all of your questions.

You not only ignored that? You ignored the hundreds of similar posts, and you ran away for weeks.

Lying is the only thing you do.

Backed up by pictures and videos on my Facebook page of my charity work and as has been stated before you have not offered a shred of reasoning to say it's not true.

Thanks for making me look good and yourself like a jackass.

Nope, an idiot theist interpreted what journalists interpreted and wrote up from a press release by Nasa is what happened.

You wouldnt know what science was if you picked up a textbook and willed yourself to read, because you a) stupid. b)willfully ignorant & c) a proven liar, lying about god.

I notice there are links and claims@ from you loons. Nothing knows why. It's clear you have no accountable position or evidence that meets the criteria you hold others to. You are cowards and bigots.

LOL you have no concept on what a creator means.
Yes, of course I have an idea what it means. It's a pretty simplistic idea, after all. But the fact is that you haven't *proven* the existence of a creator. You make claims that some creator made the laws of physics, but you have not shown how that is possible, or whether it actually happened. You have shown no way to distinguish between a universe that simply has natural laws and one that has been created to have laws. In the absence of such a difference, it is simpler to take the known existence of natural laws as fundamental.

And even with your assumptions, your claim that a crystal of salt is designed is false.
