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

Homonyms are Christian kryptonite. Well, so is critical thinking, but that is for another post.

I think you mean that man needs to be saved from a god that can't stomach him as he was created.

It's not clear why we alone were given standards that we couldn't meet. I'm sure glad that dogs weren't told that if they disobeyed that they would be tortured forever. I like dogs, and am sure that they are doing the best they can just like you and me.

Whether you know him or not, he contradicts your statements.
Richard Charles "Dick" Lewontin (born March 29, 1929) is an American evolutionary biologist, geneticist, academic and social commentator. A leader in developing the mathematical basis of population genetics and evolutionary theory, he pioneered the application of techniques from molecular biology, such as gel electrophoresis, to questions of genetic variation and evolution.
In a pair of 1966 papers co-authored with J.L. Hubby in the journal Genetics,[3][4] Lewontin helped set the stage for the modern field of molecular evolution. In 1979 he and Stephen Jay Gould introduced the term "spandrel" into evolutionary theory. From 1973 to 1998, he held an endowed chair in zoology and biology at Harvard University, and since 2003 has been a research professor there.
Lewontin strongly opposes genetic determinism, especially as allegedly propounded by researchers in behavioral genetics.
Funny, but your lover RR has declared Wikipedia suddenly unreliable and here you cut and paste from this unreliable source without attribution.

And, what are you, some kind of Commie? From your source:

"Lewontin has at times identified himself as Marxist, and admitted that his ideological views have affected his scientific work."

You're a Commie!

Christian Creepiness:

"During the ceremony, the fathers present their daughters with purity rings, and the duo become boyfriend and girlfriend.

"You keep this on your finger and as of this point you are married to the Lord and your father is your boyfriend," the father says as he hands his daughter the ring."


Hopefully this sentence is just terrible structure and not the real intent of the words:

"Having sex with, kissing or touching a man (other than their fathers) before marriage is strictly prohibited."

Yep, Christianity has nothing to do with mind control and women are just as equal as men. Where are the purity balls for the boys?

Wait, what?

"You keep this on your finger and as of this point you are married to the Lord and your father is your boyfriend," the father says as he hands his daughter the ring."

Married and a boyfriend? Why, the little slut is already an adulteress.

Oh, and those "Purity Balls" don't work and are further evidence of the harm of a Christian dogma.

"The National Longitudinal Study of Adolescent Health data supports the conclusion that teenagers making virginity pledges, including those promulgated through purity balls, usually do not adhere to the required standard of chastity, and are less prepared to utilize safer sex precautions in mitigating the risks of sexual activity when it does occur. The percentage of teenagers in a given area who have made virginity pledges is positively correlated with the frequency with which sexually transmitted diseases occur."

On another note , I watched the program "Secrets of the London Tower".
It really made me want to go see it, maybe some day I can.:)
Not sure it’s worth the trip, the “tour” is not like the TV but if you are over here anyway. It may be worth spending an hour.

I remember being pointed out the spot where prisoners were executed, I spent the rest of the talk looking for blood on the cobbles. The highpoint of the tour…

I would have to compare you to Dianna , only maybe a bit less royal and much less American.
I could imagine a Dianna like blond English lady driving a Jaguar, who commands some respect, like a Thatcher or something.:)
I though you meant for a moment, Diana the Roman goddess of the hunt – I was flattered

But not sure I like the idea of being a Diana princess of Wales, it seems she was a very troubles woman.

And definitely not a Thatcher

I was in Soerento in Italy, A yacht anchored off shore. My hotel balcony overlooked the bay and the yacht . A young couple flirted and frolicked on deck. It was not some weeks until after my holiday that it came out that the couple were Diana and Dodi
