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.

Throwing around some ignorant blame, are ya?

Question one was: Who instituted slavery in The New World?

Your answer is "Christians all"? Not only does that not make sense, it isn't true.

As for questions 2 & 3, "a" Christian isn't "all" Christians.

Unless you care to argue whether or not all atheists are like Stalin.

Do you?

The native Indians had slavery before any Christians got here.

It's not my definition of atheism, it's THE definition of atheism. I don't get into the Topix Atheist! practice of defining words as I see fit. Words have meanings, I suggest you use them.
Ideology? Why are you saying that? We were talking about religion, not ideology.
Wilderice has taken the dilution of definitions to a new level.

Atheism went from the common dilution of "lacking belief" to now being "skeptical".

Under Wilderide language, you could believe every god might exist, but be skeptical of claims about those gods, and qualify as an atheist.

His line of argument does not qualify for reasoned response. The only appropriate reaction is mockery.

Huh. It seems you're right.

I fell into the trap of seeing the word "slave" and instantly envisioning some blacks on a boat, mid-Atlantic, or kneeling down in a cotton field.

Dammit.

You were inattentive.

The Dutchmen in question were indubitably Christians.

The Pope in question was a Christian.

Columbus was a Christian.

Or are you being deliberately obtuse again?

Wilderice and Christine say the Pope is an atheist.

I had the same assumption, that the Pope is Christian. I learn new things on Topix every day.

Yup. I guess to him, an atheistic theist might be an actual term.

Ahh I get it, you think dressing up as a schoolgirl is fine but not dressing up as an alter boy?
But you are correct, priests butt fooking alter boys is pretty disgusting even by high standards of disgusting set by some priests. Of course it happens though so you can’t hide behind your babble and blame topix atheist on this one
Ta, Christine. I'm a firm believer that it's much better to laugh than cry, even if it is rather black humour.

And you promote his cause, you have promoted his cause here on topix, perhaps you didn’t realise he was atheist back then. So strange how you didn’t object to his stance on screwing little chidden but you do object to his lack of religious belief.
Interestingly, the filthy scumbag Brett Peter Cowan was a Xian. Or he dabbled with it when he lived on the Sunshine Coast in Queensland, just before committing rape and murder on the 13 year old Daniel Morcombe.

<quoted text> You are just like the abuser. Unpredictable. Everyone walks around the house on eggshells hoping to not offend the abuser who can be gentile and likable for the most part but then go off at the drop of a hat over any perceived slight or no slight at all. You are enemy centered and subject to severe mood swings just like the abuser and your posts reflect that. Indirectly blaming Christianity for 9/11, you really show your true colors and I believe you believe the poison you spew. At best it is a bimbo eruption and at worst well it is just venom. Thanks for revealing your true colors and I have been around long enough to remember the harassment heaped upon that Christian woman a while back. You folks were like a pack of rabid dogs to her as I recall. If there is any justice you will get yours. Whatever she was she did not deserve the abuse she received here. So don't go getting so sanctimonious now about abusers. Just go look in the mirror.
Playing the victim...LOL

.. boy, oh boy, oh boy, the Christian men on this thread are really in a tether ..
.. tremendous change has occurred in western societies. Expecting women to adhere to ancient religious and moral codes that demean their gender will only make them reject all Abrahamic religions. Don't you get that ??..
.. you probably don't endorse female genital mutilation or sanctioned rape but some cultures do. It is for these women, the females living in countries like Afghanistan or Uganda, that I weep ..
.. in an effort to make this about me instead of women, you utilize character assassination. Do you feel so threatened by my views that you seek revenge and think, "If there is any justice you will get yours". What's that all about? Are you offended by my critique of religion or does it threaten your perceived superior position ??..
Waris Dirie's autobiography was upsetting enough, on that score.

That was Sol Invictus (the Unconquerable Sun). Dec 25 was also the birthday of the god Mithras, popular with the Roman legions.
