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.

Agreed. You are barely educated. That is why you believe fairy stories are real.
You are no more than a child throwing a temper tantrum when someone tells them Santa isn't real.

<quoted text>The same way I know that Peter Pan's NeverNever Land doesn't exists. The same way I know that "pixie dust" doesn't exist. And I know that the naturalistic realm is the only realm because at this point in time, science has failed to detect anything other than this reality. So "For this moment in time" I KNOW that this is the only realm.
Oh.

So you just "know"? Maybe, call it intuition? A gut feeling?

You'll excuse me for not taking your word for it.

<quoted text>The person that jumps in front of a speeding car to save the life of someone they love, even though it may mean death for them is proof that love exists. The parent that would do ANYTHING to save their child is proof of love. Are you a parent? Would you not do anything within your power to save your child? If so, what is the motivating power that makes you act this way.
Like many thing, the evidence can be observed. The person that devotes their lives to healing the sick and saving lives does so because of his/her love of mankind. OBSERVATIONS, prove love. Can you NOT tell the difference between two people who hate each other and two that love each other? Are not the differences observable and obvious?
Yes, I would do anything to save the life of my child. But that doesn't prove love.

I asked you to prove love to me, not give me two dull and drab paragraphs of nothingness.

Hey if you can't do it, that's cool...

This guy who calls himself “No Shiite,” would be easy to hate. But he’s this spastic narcissist because of his upbringing. This guy has been beaten and hated his whole life so that’s what he emits when he writes.
It’s sad, really sad that a person like him doesn’t know what it’s like to have family and friends love him. However he does know and understand hate. I just wanted him to know why he has had so much tribulation in his life. Some of it is not his fault. He has been shaped and molded that way and pushed out into society.
As far as you my friend I have not had the chance to read much of what you've posted. This I know that No Shiite hates you and I would say that’s a big plus in your corner. Give me some time and I'll try and see what comes to mind.[tipping hat]
My, my aren't you a seething ball of judgmental hate, speculating about someone you don't know. Christians are creepy.

Dude, if you can't even spell "Peter" or "never" correctly, you really don't get to sit here and say that you're intelligent, because you're really not.
I consider an a lie as well.

Prove God loves us like your religion claims.

Based on your argument here, it is just a wild assumption with no proof whatsoever.

Huh. You claim to be very highly educated, several college degrees, an archaeological and history expert, a master computer technician, you even claim to be a college professor and a high school teacher.
You have also claimed; "I believe in God and I believe in Jesus".
So, not that I believe you at all but, you say that you are very highly educated and you believe in "fairy stories".
And really? "Fairy stories"? I think a person that has the self-proclaimed education that you have would know that they are not called "fairy stories", they're called "fairytales".
Fairy tales is two words, nitwit.

“You are barely educated”
You were not on the radar screen but now you are being painted. What I’m about to say is not meant to anger you but it probably will. That statement,“You are barely educated,” holds more truth to your own life than anyone here on topix.
If one word could described your life that would be “underachievement.” You have managed to survive but that’s the extent of it. It had to be your way and your time.
As a result you have a meager existence. You realize now that you had much more capability and potential but you were not disciplined enough to shape it into something.
Are you less of a person than anyone here on topix? I’m not saying that at all. You could have went further in life but you chose not too. My friend be who you are in real life and try not to put yourself on a pedestal.
Leave the pedestal for the Olympic medalist.
Wow, what a charmer you are. Speculating about another stranger, eh? Christians are creepy.

Not sure what you mean about my defect.
I have found it profound to note the different types of response we see in the Bible.
Look at the distinct responses of Jesus.
Note the response in the Epistles to those who have no desire for truth.
Elijah mocking the prophets of Baal.
Stephen's response spurred on his stoning.
I would submit that a sugar coated response is sometimes not the Christian response.
You'll have to forgive me , I'm just contentious . Hence I'm here and not on 'facebook', are you really going to stick to your guns and label hermaphrodite as a birth defect ..?

See , Unfair once you start using scripture to bolster your position , you know I no recourse, but to concede ..( Jesus never sugar coated , and regardless of what I said earlier, You never should either .)

I don't believe in the fairy stores of you and your church and I don't believe in the Bible.

I believe Jesus was a righteous teacher who (with John the Baptist) fulfilled Leviticus 16 ending Temple Judaism.

Then by all means don't take my word for it, ask a scientist. Ask any scientists if Peter Pans NeverNever Land actually exists. Then ask his/her if there is a substance called pixies dust that not only allows you to defy gravity but fly off into space with no life support systems. Make sure you let him/her know you are serious and seeking a serious answer. See what they have to say after they stop laughing, assuming they ever stop!!!! Let me know how you make out Skippy!!!
