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.

There is only one cure for it; be sexually moral.

You'll never even worry about contracting it or any other STD.

Now that was a good essay. When I read the Quran, what struck me was how many of the stories are similar to the ones in the Bible. Yet the 2 religions have been @ each others' throats, right back from the time of the Crusades...and it goes on.
Thanks, Rosa.

Faith is a beautiful thing. What a great way to make important decisions.
Have you ever seen a religious billboard with a message like this?

"With faith, anything is possible."

How intellectually constipated do you have to be to think that's a good thing?

Not at all.

Hey, I can't help it if people like "Snake Boy" choose not to read the entire Bible...
I can't help it if Topix Atheists! don't, either.
You and almost every other theist believes what they believe by faith. You and Snake Boy have a faith based belief about what the Bible says.

The Topix Atheists! don't have such faith based beliefs.

You are arguing, as is typical for a faith based believer, that your version is correct, while another is incorrect, with no justification greater than that of your opposition. You both believe by faith.

What does that tell you about faith?

Awwww, they can't kill people who oppose them anymore, boo hoo.
Yes-- that must really grate on their nerves, that they can no longer burn "witches" at the stake, or impale heretics.

So they sling feces instead.

It's kinda sad to witness, really-- the level of cognitive dissonance required to maintain such a warped view of reality.

That's a hypothesis. Repeated experimentation may be necessary.

Sheeeeeet.....

What you call intellectual constipation, I call simplicity.

Life is meant to be simple. Simplicity brings happiness. Complication brings stress and unhappiness.

Let go. Simplify your work and simplify your life.

Indeed.

You literally have to ignore all of reality itself, to be so mentally bankrupt.

This is a repulsive post and a horrible way to speak. Have you ever watched someone die from AIDS? A straight person? A child?
You are scum.

Yeah it's sad, it's also very useful, if they're not going to wake up, the least they can do is provide marvellous examples.
