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.

<quoted text> You were the one who claimed the rebirth of Israel essentially was no big deal. I asked you to cite other examples of nations reforming after 1500 years since you know so much about history and so far all I am seeing is smoke and excuses. It is your camp which claims the Bible is nothing more than a book of myths. OTOH it is used as a basis to bring back a country after close to 1900 years. Well which is it? Do your so called examples above come any where close to 1500 years? This is perhaps the most clear example of present day prophecy . Justin writes about the fall of Jerusalem in his first apology as history.[47:35] Then writes about things yet to happen. Then cites Ezek 37 as a basis for the reformation of Israel as you go through chapter 53. The problem is not with the actual evidence because when it is presented all critics do is minimize. Do they have any precedent from history where any other country came back after that long a time and it was predicted by so many from a so called book of myths? You know as much about the Bible as you did about the book Atlas Shrugged which you admit you did read yet felt compelled to do a type of negative report based on some business man from Sears. Not on actual evidence from reading the book. What a joke.
It's just a self fulfilling prophecy as pointed out here:

Don't you think it's pretty stupid of you to have just said who you work for?
That makes it even more surprising that you can get away with spending the lion's share of your workday posting on Topix instead, of, uh, well - posting on Topix. No "mom & pop" operation would be able to overlook your thievery of their time and money.
Not to even mention your wife and child-bashing - and clubbing terrified motorists' windshields.
But thanks! for the fine Christian example you are.
You're welcome, Catcher.

Now kindly don't mistake this as an invitation to open a dialogue. Your "troll meter" ranking is far too high for me to be interested..........or care.

Clearly I touched a nerve.

I'll risk your troll meter since you ranked a 10 on the bigot/idiot meter...

I'll go when I decide.

It aint necessarily so wrote:
<quoted text>
We have a duty to speak up about the church and on behalf of life without religion. The more we do, the more that other unbelievers will do the same, and the more that people who are simply conforming to group pressure will feel comfortable living without religion.
Our immediate goal has to be to disempower it politically and socially in order to get it out of the lives of unbelievers. That means getting it onto the tax rolls, getting its god off the currency and out of the pledge, and removing its influence from the legislatures and laws books, and from the school boards and classrooms.
The next goal should be to protect children from the church.
Children? I always find that your most valid point.

I disagree. He's a vicious stalker nut with serious penis envy issues.

He lives in Melbourne and is a demented stalker in the rw.

Ask Aggro or Ade. Lol.

He's not still here is he?
