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.

I enjoy listening to you rationalize your reason for hitting a women, all the while knowing you're nothing but a cowardly thug. I'm convinced that if a real man wronged you as any women, might have done, you'd not only not hit them but tuck your tail between your cowardly legs and run.
Ok, now put on your buttcrack hat, and tell me about all the bar fights you've been in, and how many men twice your size you have beaten to a pulp. Any man that would strike a women is a coward incapable of facing a man in a fight.
Give the Redneck credit, he's really a brave guy.

One time, he smashed the front windshield of a car with a club.

The driver was in the car, totally unable to defend himself.

Watch how he tries to spin this one.

I have no idea what you meant to say. That is because Newton's "Every action has an equal and opposite reaction" has no application to what you were writing about.
Sure you did and sure Newton's law does.

There is a direct connection between an action and a reaction. YOU even mocked what I meant when I misstated it.

For instance; Your hate and bigotry is making you obtuse...

LOL, getting desperate aren't you?
People don't use condoms because of the Catholic Church (most Christians in Africa are not Catholic), they don't use condoms because they are atheists and don't care about abusing women or anus'.
However, your claim was violence, not sexual behavior, equating Christianity and Islam.
Waiting...
Name one atheist organization running a food kitchen in your community.

1. The population of Africa is over 1 billion. You listed 16% as Catholic.
2. I said in YOUR community. You came up with TWO in the whole country. I came up with 42 Churches in your community with a quick search.

<quoted text>You made two false statements, one you denied that condom use is NOT forbidden by the Catholic Church, and the other, that Atheists don't use condoms. You're either a liar, or stupid, most likely both.
The catholic Church as of 2009 had 158 million members in Africa, thats approximately 158 million people NOT using condoms during sex, thereby spreading HIV. Therefore, the Catholic Church, to the tune of 158 million, is solely responsible for the spread of HIV in Africa. It is Therefor responsible for ALL of the misery and death caused by HIV.
I listed two of the communities I have lived in, there is one here in the community were I now live. I gave you two, but could list all of the Atheists and secular organizations that do charitable work. Better yet, get off your fas lazy ass, and google them for yourself.
First, it would be polite and moral to admit you misrepresented Catholics in Africa and tried to deceptively divert from my challenge about a benevolent atheistic organization in your community. Right?

Second, read what I wrote again. I made no such claim. I said most Africans don't use condoms because of Catholicism. Most CATHOLICS don't use condoms.

Third, I will guarantee that most atheists don't use condoms. But my point was, the immorality has to do with the rejection of God and the abuse of women. The opposite of what you claim.

Fourth, if there were an atheist benevolent organization in your community, why didn't you just say so???

Smirk.

Yes you do "paint" with a new magical instrument, one that strips all of humanity from the "painting' A series of numbers assigned sounds, these sounds are devoid of expression, the time frame they are played in are constant and unmoving, no room for individual expression as you would get with a rhythm section of humans, were the "time" is a SHARED, experience. It moves almost undetected, yet it moves, ebbs and flows, breaths, something robotic click tracts can never accomplish. No mater what you do, the music will always be cold and impersonal, like any other machine. It performs a function perfectly, flawless in its presentation, and that is the problem, humans are not perfect, there is always some flaws in a performance, slight intonation differences, time lags, missed phrasing, but thats what makes music human. Anxiously waiting to hear if the strings make that incredible 4 octave run in thirty second notes, will the horns waver on that long sustained hight note, will the trumpet nail that high note after the octave leap. With your electronically generated music, none of that is a concern, it will be flawless and automatic, thereby removing ALL of the human elements from the performance.

A cold hard calculating realm of electronic sounds,devoid of all human elements, this is your future, enjoy it. I'll be jamming with real humans, instantly creating melodies and harmonies, some will be wrong, some will work, other not, but its the experience thats important, something you have yet to learn, and it appears it's something you will never learn, I do kind of pity you. Good luck amateur!!

There are NO significant prophesies that can be "clearly" seen today. Tell me what you think they are and I'll have no problem showing you how foolish they are.
And I am right, the bible is a complete worthless work of fiction, that would also include your God.

I see you conceded the issue about Creation.

I think a whole culture that has maintained it's identity for over 3000 years and an world-wide Church are pretty clearly seen. LOL.

Well hello Lesbo!

Provoke a response, did I?

1. Here is the background of the Ten Commands;

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Movement_for_the...

2. The violence in Central Africa was self-defense after Islamic terrorists barbarically attacked Christians. When it crossed into vengeance, it clearly violated Christianity.

3. It was the Christians attacked in Syria. Also Egypt, Iraq and Iran to name a few more.

4. 9-11 was Muslims.

Violence is woven into mankind.

I asked you to show me the prophesies that can be "clearly seen" today, so far nothng.

I would also enjoy seeing your three significant creation "facts." Understand that a FACT is something supported by evidence and not just because a ancient book says so.

So lets see your prophecies and your creation facts, I can't wait to see these.

What you supplied was a refutation based upon an unclaimed exact copy of your religious mythology. It was a straw man argument/refutation.
No one claims Christianity is an - exact copy - of a previously existing mythology.
Concepts and elements within the other mythologies are pointed out, and it's noted that the Christian mythology shares similarities or common themes with an older mythology - which is a trademark of mythologies, they borrow from older mythologies - that existed before Christianity.
That's a disingenuous Christian tactic in responding to those observations that Christianity shares similarities with preexisting mythic beliefs.
Christians alter the observations made by scholars that point out those common elements, trying to change those observations to a claim of Christianity being an exact copy of other mythologies.
That isn't the case.
You still divert the issue?

The claim was made that the god modeled the virgin birth. The next site exposed that and other issues as a deliberate misrepresentation. Something you are perpetrating too.

I do kind of pity your poor students.

It's appalling how willingly you shortchange them in the world of electronic music education.

I doubt you would reject medical advancements
Especially when the robotics replaced human parts.

Apparently you prefer to ignore these advances stick with the old take two aspirin call me in the morning attitude.

The imagined "purity "of the old way is better than the robotics.

Wow! Just wow

In a musical world of black tuxedoes you remain a pair of brown shoes.

I believe this is a trumpet song you might be familiar with especially if you know how to triple tongue, which I found the Tot tic Ka rather simple to master myself how about you?

Still I admire your musical enthusiasm.

Why do you assume he was "totally unable" to defend himself?

You think maybe he was immobilized by his seatbelt?

Or maybe he did what you would've done. Ran your big fat mouth because the car is moving, threaten to fight, run away like a coward then shit your pants when the SoCal traffic comes to a halt and you see the dude you were talking shit to coming at you.

Ya, that'd be you. Totally unable to defend yourself....

You don't know much about Newton's Law, do you. It is talking about forces in physics, that if A places a force on B, then B places an equal force on A. Nothing more.

As usual, you don't have a clue what you are talking about.

No hate. No bigotry. No mocking. Correcting a misconception is not mocking. Disagreement is not hatred nor bigotry.

And you are one serious hypocrite, with all your SMiles and SMirks to talk about hatred in others.

As usual, projection.

Personally I prefer artists that a lot of people aren't even familiar with.

Pink Martini
Diana Krall
Manhattan transfer
Tower of power
Charlie Parker
The magnificent Renée Fleming
Many others of quality, I have to admit it's good to see a young man like Michael Buble perform quality material
You're right, I've never heard of any of those.

Here's Snoop Dogg live on Letterman. Listen to how shitty he sounds without all the computer fixing his production company does.

You can tell pretty quick whether or not someone has talent by listening to them live. Snoop has no singing talent whatsoever.
