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.

Thank you my friend for your kind words. It goes to show you Atheist are far more tolerant than what people think. I mean you could have said something disparaging. But instead you showed us that Atheist have a moral disposition in dealing with their fellow man.
This is probably why Madalyn Murray O'Hair was murdered by her fellow co-worker, David Waters. A nice man who also had a moral disposition like yourself. He kindly removed $54,000 from the American Atheist Accounts for his own use.
Then he felt so badly about this fund dispersion by his hands. That he felt the need to show Madalyn, Jon her son, and her granddaughter a good time. So he did them a favor and murdered them. Then chopped them up into small pieces. Kind of strange how Atheist deal with their fellow man, strange indeed.

What's a chiwawa?
“Chiwawa” is slang for “Chihuahua.”

Or like

“Post two” is slang for “supposed to,”

“Fixin”-“about to”

“Waybackin”-“Back there”

“Furpice”-“a long ways off”

Not to be confused with

“Furpease”-“For peace”

<quoted text>Thanks for making the point once again that believers are less intelligence than non-believers, with you misspell of Chihuahua. It takes almost no intelligence at all to look up a word you are unfamiliar with. Lazy or stupid? Both maybe?
This kind of comparison research has been going on for decades with race versus intelligence.

Do you believe whites are more intelligent than blacks?

Your fellow white Caucasian Phd Scientist do based on their research.

Do you believe Americans are more intelligent than Vietnamese? You know the Vietnamese showed us in Vietnam they could kick our a** and they did on many occasions even though we had the technological advantage.

I don’t believe any of it Doctor because the research has so many variables. The researchers can literally generate any kind of result they want.

All this research about intelligence versus race or religion is just bull sh*t.

Doctor, you need to divorce yourself from all this bigotry. Humanity is humanity, people are people, and we are all cut from the same cloth, Whites, Blacks, Asians, Atheist, Muslims, Christians……………..

I have made many mistakes in my life my friend. Some of which were so miniscule like a little insignificant misspelling in a topix post and others were humdingers.

But I never killed anyone, or hurt someone by one of my mistakes.

How about you?

I have several parrots, including an African grey, which I have owned since the day she hatched. That's 18 years ago.
She has at least a 150-word vocabulary, and puts together some sentences (on her own, not mimicry) that constantly surprise the heck out of us. She somewhat runs the house, including the other parrots and dogs as well. Sometimes she's too mischievous......
Several years ago, a friend stopped in to visit and brought her dog. After a brief visit in the living room, everyone headed to the kitchen, forgetting the animals for the moment. After a couple of minutes, there was the loudest screaming imaginable, the grey shrieking "(my name), help, please help!. Now! C'mon!" The dog had jumped on the sofa and was trying to get to her.
There's also a double yellow-headed Amazon female, 45 years old, does some great operatic bits in addition to a pretty well established vocabulary.
Both birds have excellent diction and distinctly clear speech.
You know there’s a lot of Atheist that claim animals can’t speak in human language.

I’ve had birds and know they are very entertaining friends.

No, because earthworms are very useful in the garden.

Wasssy reminds me more of this creature. Not only are they both bloodsucking parasites, but they both like to go into bedrooms where they are not welcome.

how i knew God is present :
1. when i was a small kid, i did not believe in God. when i was an older teen, i started to pray to solve some problems. i noticed that most of my prayers were answered. that was the start of my believe in God, but a little doubtful too.
2. but on June 30, 2011, i saw a real Miracle. that was the time that my belief in God became stronger. there is no more doubt about it.
if you don't believe in Miracles and God, well, that is your problem, not mine.
Whatever you do don’t tell these people about that miracle.

They will only ridicule & make mockery and try to use it against you.

I have witnessed miracles myself and have seen the vast majority of my prayers answered. And those prayers that weren’t answered were for a reason.

Keep your miracle from them.

Doctor, "good" and "evil" are biblical terms and you don't believe in the Bible.

Nope.

The two opposing forces, originated in ancient Persia and was a concept Zoroaster concocted over 5,000 years ago. Ahura Mazda (good or light) and Angra Mainyu (evil or dark).

Before that time, dark and light were thought to be one. As we all have both within us and the theory is to accept every aspect ourselves in order to achieve balance. A concept found in Taoism and Buddhism, both of which are older than Zoroastrianism.

Between the origins and medieval times, when christians recycled the concept, Ancient Greece and the rest of the world embraced the terms, which were given western meaning (language wise) by Socrates, Plato and a few other philosophers. Good and evil.

I can't really think of any aspect of christianity that is even remotely original other than the blatant encouragement of ignorance, yet even that can be found in others.

The bible is the op shop of religions and belief is not required to acquire knowledge of any kind, if anything, it is preventative.
