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.

Those things:
---
It tells me to NOT try a force junk science into the classroom,
it tells me that homosexuals are NOT second class citizens,
it tells me that science needs to continue its journey of discovery without interference,
it tells me that I am no more special than the next person simply because he belongs to a different club, and
it tells me to NOT fly airliners in to buildings,
nor encourage children to blow themselves up along with innocent people.

Christianity teaches those things.
Sellers of ignorant Religious Cults that can't present any evidence have no rights in the classroom.

Those kids are not yours to f*ck with.

Religion needs to keep its mental illness in its own living room and stop trying to f*ck with society.

Much like the prisoner who cannot be trusted to be part of society - the religious liar cannot be trusted to educate others.

In the future there will be regulation against this type of indoctrination - much like fraud regulation.

religious information can cause brain damage and needs to be regulated.

Oh my. What you are saying is believers in Ahura Mazda would be out in the cold.
How many people do you estimate that would affect? How would they live?
On a finer point - who gives a shit?
And godbots like you

Your faith would be shattered by fact, once it become fact it can no longer be faith, you would not believe, you would know and then you would be as good as me.

However that chances of such an occurrence are just about impossible so keep the faith, I’ll keep the knowledge.

Certainly not me, I was replying to you post so it must be you who gives a sh|t

All you've "explained" is that DNA didn't exist until it was named and E=MC2 proves God can't be omnipotent.
I laugh at the superior intellect.....
This is correct and butter did not exist as butter until it was named butter

Ahh thanks for admitting that I have explained that E=MC^2 shows that gods cannot be omnipotent. I believe this I the first time you have lowered yourself to such a conclusion

Yes dumbos often do, it’s a side effect of the dunning kruger effect

So where do you think he is?, in your pants?
Honey the tradition is that god/heaven is up, the underworld/hell is down, the it stems from the Greek belief that gods lived up on Olympus and the Greco-Roman belief in the underworld
Your tradition may be the skydaddy thing, but it isn't mine.

You may look up when you're pissed at God, I don't look up when I pray.

And it's very creepy when you call me honey.

Atheism means arrogance, disrespect to the creator. An atheism thinks due to his knowledge that he is the best and thus gets intoxicated by pride . It arises generally when one is intellectually superior than others. Due to intellectual superiority illusion takes over his ego thus he becomes deluded that there's no creator and everything belongs to him. He forgets the Truth that everything is God's creation and even all intelligence belongs to the supreme Person.
So no matter how intellectual you are without god you are nothing more than a fool who is deluded by material energy(maya).
Thus to prevent oneself from intoxication of pride complete surrender to Guru and God is required. Thus one can stay peaceful devoid of false ego.

Chant and be happy

Is there an argument here?
You are right, I shouldn't have compared the Iliad to the Bible. The Iliad is of much higher literary quality. And is a far more interesting story.
But they are both myths.
I was right, you are very biased in which myths you believe.
The Iliad isn't Zeus' bible.

Zeus has no bible.

Comparing the Iliad to the Bible is an argument from ignorance.
