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.

Unlike all other drugs that you mention - marijuana is a natural plant; requires nothing but to be left to grow and then wither and die.
I am fulfilling my duty by burning it up as quickly as possible and keeping it out of the hands of children

Just a final observation of Topix atheists and a suggestion to them.

When you "study" something to become "learned", and "in the know", you have your head stuck in a book. Which makes it very hard to "observe" what is really happening around you.

You are directed to which books to read. The "proper ones" to be enlightened with. This also applies to old religious works as well as the new "scientific" religions.

Who does the directing? What makes them so much superior to you to do such?

As a physical being you are part of a larger system. A facet, not a something new and unique. Humanity is a derivative of foregoing processes, most of which we can't see from here. The universe created us, we didn't just pop out of nowhere. You have the "physical" linkage as well as the "mental" linkage derived from such. Mankind is a rutabaga with illusions. You as an individual is just a temporary localized collection of energy. There is a larger scheme of things to fit into when that localization is ended. That is the make or break for continued "existence" on a comfortable level. Let's say you have to think big and be able to fit into a new scheme of things. You can't do that believing this is all there is, and what is in it for you. It's a conditioning process.

When you are young you are cared for. That is when parents try to protect and prepare you. When you become prime you discover that others just want your money or your ass. You will be leaving this womb eventually.

Get your nose out of the books and look around.

Upset? You're a very strange person. Is that a symptom or a cause of your delusion? The Gospels were not handed down. They have been manipulated through time with each iteration transmogrified to help consolidate money and power.

Modern humanistic morality is superior in every way to that found in the ugly BuyBull.
The twists and turns of the Christer Watusi in attempting to justify that repugnance are hysterical.

THIS IS THE PLANT OF RENOWN

But it does nothing for hunger except make you more hungry. So it cant be this plant. I don't think anybody knows which plant is mentioned in this verse.

Unless it was wheat. I got nothing against marijuana but it does not feed the land.

I have to agree-- in spite of my disdain for all things Catholic, I do like the new Pope-- he truly seems to give a crap about little people.
A welcome contrast to previous ones.
Don't be fooled. While he seems less strident than Benny the Rat or Popemobile Paul (Now there is a rampant display of a lack of faith - a bulletproof Popemobile. It's as ridiculous as Christians carrying guns for protection), if there is no actual policy change then it's just same as it ever was. It's like changing Presidents in America. It makes little difference.

<quoted text>yet , child sacrifice is explicitly condemned in the good book , and you heathens seem to rejoice in abortions ..
Condemned? Bwahahahahaha.

They entered into a covenant to seek the Lord, the God of their fathers, with all their heart and soul; and everyone who would not seek the Lord, the God of Israel, was to be put to death, whether small or great, whether man or woman.

Murder is celebrated in your immoral book. That you call others heathens and enemies speaks to your mental illness. Who rejoices in abortions? You are sick.

No-- you are 100% incorrect. Not only is child sacrifice **not** condemned? It's actually demanded of the bible-followers.
Time and time again, bible-god **commands** his people to go into a land, and **murder** everyone-- including the children.
But it's worse-- followers of the bible all too often rely on magic (prayers) instead of modern scientific medicine, when their children are ill.
And too often-- these poor kids **die** as result-- they are **sacrificed** to the bible's religion.
And there is **nothing** in the bible that forbids this-- in fact? It's **demanded** of it's followers.
So you are quite wrong.
Again.
And what of the infanticide, generally by devout Christian mothers, to prevent their children from being corrupted by "sin" and missing out on their imaginary Heaven. Those babies don't drown themselves in the bathtub.

It appears you have some issues with neuron connectivity within your brain structure resulting in the inability to collate and associate information, which of course also affects your wit production. Such disabilities do interfere with imagination and abstract thinking that most humans are capable of.

Go walking through a cow pasture with your nose stuck in a book or to your cellphone.

You may not be as happy by looking around, but you will wind up smelling better.

Bibles and science books are both written by men. Mortal men.

You can be fairly assured of the accuracy of a book describing how to build a house, but once you get past that it gets iffy.

You can read all you want about rock climbing, but you have to experience it to know it.

Just had an atheist knock at my door promoting his religion.

Not really.

It was a Jehovah.
