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.

Atheism loses another court battle

Massachusetts High Court Upholds 'Under God' in Pledge of Allegiance as Constitutional
By Anugrah Kumar on May 12,2014

Atheist parents and students wanted the Pledge of Allegiance banned in schools in Massachusetts because it contains the phrase "under God," but the state's highest court has ruled that reciting it does not violate the commonwealth's constitution or laws.
"We hold that the recitation of the pledge, which is entirely voluntary, violates neither the Constitution nor the statute [which prohibits discrimination in Massachusetts public school education]...," the Massachusetts Supreme Judicial Court said Friday in Doe v. Acton-Boxborough Regional School District.

"Simply being offended by something does not make it a violation of the Massachusetts Constitution," said Senior Legal Counsel Jeremy Tedesco of Alliance Defending Freedom. "As we argued in our brief and as the Supreme Judicial Court found, the recitation is completely voluntary, and listening to the words 'under God' does not violate anyone's constitutional freedoms."

ADF and Massachusetts Family Institute filed a joint friend-of-the-court brief in the case filed by atheist and humanist parents Jane Doe and John Doe, who claimed their children were "offended" by simply hearing the words "under God."

"Although the words 'under God' undeniably have a religious tinge, courts that have considered the history of the pledge and the presence of those words have consistently concluded that the pledge, notwithstanding its reference to God, is a fundamentally patriotic exercise, not a religious one …," the court concluded. "The fact that a school or other public entity operates a voluntary program or offers an activity that offends the religious beliefs of one or more individuals, and leaves them feeling 'stigmatized' or 'excluded' as a result, does not mean that the program or activity necessarily violates equal protection principles."

The American Humanist Association claims that the phrase was added to the pledge during the Cold War era as an explicitly anti-atheist statement to distinguish the U.S. from atheist Russia.

Group preparing to press military for atheist chaplain, source says

Published May 13, 2014
FoxNews.com

“In what some might see as an oxymoron, an advocacy group apparently is preparing to ask the Defense Department to appoint a chaplain -- for atheists.”

How strange, Atheist don’t believe in God, but they’re about to ask for an Atheist Chaplain?

What would a Atheist Chaplain do for the troops?

Give hugs? Reassure them when they’re dying there’s no God?

Reassure them there’s no hope for living or dying?

What would they tell a soldier when they find out their spouse or girlfriend has found someone else?“Hey dude, it’s only natural selection, don’t let it bother you. There‘s no such thing as love?”

Figure that out by yourself did you?
It was sarcasm to begin with, meaning the reason we went to Iraq was because of what the Iraqi did to Kuwait. Not that an evil president decided to kill Iraqi's. Or that we invaded Kuwait like Ali Baba and the 40 thieves, that was WTH Iraqis did.

USA is not the only country ran by those sickos. Unfortunately, the illuminati installed their men in almost every country of the world. Even in mine. For example, we have a minister who studied at Yale and while being there he joined "Skull and Bones" secret society, the same one which Bush family are members of. We had a freemason as a president, and we have one female minister who was a member of Order of Malta. What good can we expect from people like them? The answer is, none. Serbia is ran by those people and we have seen the results already. Misery

Yes, global warming, then there's spying on people, total control of people, GMO food, artifical deseases, banking slavery, wars, immorality, unusual deaths of people, occult...

It is simple to just say that is simply. It is not so simple figuring out the interrelationships of physical forces that gave birth to such things that you call simply mythology. Such as what can induce such hallucinations in people out under a big old sky out of the blue, so to speak.

On the physical level you have to have triggers to start processes that result in reaching conclusions. The body and physical mind are collections of processes. Your computer and your mind follow a similar if not exact pattern on that score. That burst of electrical current initiates an action. It is all in how the paths followed by that current that determines what happens. Simply put, something has to induce a difference of potential and thus current flow for things to happen such as animation or thought.

The dry air of the desert is a very good insulator of electricity and magnetism. The dry air is even better than a vacuum for magnetism. This can create "hot spots" within the greater overall transfers of energies. You yourself are one of those "hot spots". You are a relatively contained bundle of energy transfers. Your environment influences those transfers. That is why you can feel a chill or sweat. There are more subtle effects.

"Pure" water is one of the best electrcial insulators around. Better than dry air. Probably the best "naturally" occuring chemical to do so. But drop the tiniest amount of salts in it and that changes dramatically. Paths are established to transfer electrical energy. A drop of water can "come alive" when exposed to an EM field trying to reach its local equilibrium again.

BBT, Great Spirit, God or gods is the flow we exist in. The BBT is described as a closed circuit, with our existence being like that drop of water "coming alive", or that computer cranking up. The gods are the larger forces within that flow. God and the Great Spirit are what set it all in motion. The failure of neo-atheism is it doesn't understand the processes it claims supports it contentions. It is very much stuck on "it just is". A very, very simplistic approach used to justify overreactions due to internal overloads. Ego of a local circuit versus reality of a much larger one.

Or something like that.:-)

Something tells me you would get very nervous and paranoid if your woman was exposed to the influence of "The Dave Nelson". Your insecurities and shortcomings would overwhelm you. You would resist likely enhancements to your living experience out of that fear. Relax, I am sure "The Dave Nelson" would return her to you, and in better shape.

And Darwin is a madman.

Seems to me you agree with him, I'll stick to that we all were made according to God's image :)
