Atheism requires as much faith as religion?

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. Full Story

I haven't seen any case of the ID science guys, Behe, Minnich, Meyer, staging fake photographs to support their theory.
Seems ID guys are not only smarter than the Darwinists,...but also more honest.
I think using the word "false" is being too kind.

"Maliciously lying with intent to deceive and perpetuate the lie of the Theory of Evolution" is more apropos.

And you are mixing the state up with the man, such an easy mistake you make.
Let's get this straight.

You say that Stalin's state efforts to restore the church is evidence he was a Christian.

But Stalin's state efforts to make the state atheist, even surpassing the atheist state of Lenin, and destroying the church, is not evidence for his atheism.

On the latter, you say that's "mixing the state up with the man", which is a mistake.

On the former, you do the same thing, and there it is legitimate.

You're out of your league, Chrissy.

I suggest you discuss things with Blue Buffoon, who thinks dinosaurs had no DNA.

That not news, thatís olds and complete wrong in that it deliberately focuses on one period, cherry picks and omits the final figures.
It omits the FACT that before Stalin died he was instrumental in restoring the priesthood and 25000 churches.

"blacklagoon" said that as far as science is concerned, DNA didn't exist until it was discovered.

Yup, dinosaurs had no DNA.

It's amazing what the Topix Atheists! can teach us.

Talk about putting things in literal terminology. I actually quite like the recent Pope. As an atheist he isn't the extremist we see in the media. Which I enjoy.

Yes. Topix atheist, amateur biologist, and all-around fink, Blue Baboon.

And have you met Christine - who says the Pope is an atheist?

And what about WildeRide - who says EVERYONE is an atheist?

You can learn a lot around here, man. No shit.

...We have this one guy, Darwin's SumpPump, who claims to be a mathematician and a calculus professor. He says that a donut is infinite in length. He says you can slice a pizza into infinite pieces, of area greater than zero, and put the infinite pieces back in the same box.

It's a nut house, man. I was in prison for 12 years, and the people there are smarter than Topix atheists.

<quoted text>
How does that work? American society has begun accepting gay marriage in the last several years, for example, and I for one haven't had my common or moral senses perverted by it as you predict. Nor do any of my friends or acquaintances seem to be any different either.
In fact, not only is there no evidence of the moral catastrophe you predict in tolerant Americans for being tolerant, I can't imagine how such tolerance could make anybody a worse person - unless their religion incited them to be meaner. Many of the religious seem to be angrier and worse people because of it, but that's it.
And of course, that wouldn't be due to tolerance for a group, but due to the intolerance of the church for that attitude. Is that the deterioraization that you're speaking of - the church getting into a lather over the rest of us trying to honor the Golden Rule?
It's my opinion that this mean spirited hostility is a big turn off for most people not already strongly affiliated with the church and in its sway, and will hasten the diminution of the church, just as its many scandals have. and its frontal attack on science probably has had. You can't very well claim the moral or intellectual high ground with so much baggage.
LOL!

here's a clue pal: a deceived person doesn't know that they're deceived or else they wouldn't be deceived, now would they?

for those of us who aren't deceived, dealing with deceived & moral barbarians in every day life with driving, commerce, entertainment...etc just plain doesn't work anymore.

Just to show you what kind of liar Buck is, he stated just now that...

What I said is that a path of infinite length can be mapped onto a circle (and hence the torus...or in Buck lingo a donut) by the mapping

x = cos(t)

y = sin(t)

for t = 0 to infinity

I also gave Buck links showing the circle has an infinite fundamental group...which is just another way of saying what I said above.

And what I said here is that...

Sum(1/2^n) for n = 1 to infinity = 1.

Yes, an infinite number of non-zero terms can add to a finite value...something Buck claims can not happen. As you know, we are talking about convergent series here.

Being an EE, you will know a fair amount about convergent series since you probably use (and were certainly taught) Fourier Series.

And, get this. Buck claims to have made straight As in calculus...despite not knowing, or even grasping, the above facts.

You might also note that Buck seems to think calling me names makes his argument more valid.

Oh yes, I understand that math behind it. It was one of the hardest classes I took. Math Lab did a wonderful job of doing all that math for me though. ;)

I don't take what many people on this site take to heart. Most of the people on here are defensive and try to make bold claims with absolutely no source. Believe me, I do not take what Buck says seriously.
