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.

That's because they want to have their beliefs to themselves, I'd say. Rather than being under the thumb of a church.
You really couldn't blame them.
Religion: "the belief in a god or in a group of gods"

No, I don't blame them for trying to distance themselves from organized stupidity, but it is still religion and still stupid.

That's great! Now if we could convince those other believers out there to keep their religious beliefs out of government, we would being doing great!

Where in the bible did god say he wanted a relationship with us?
It's implied throughout. But specifically:

"No longer do I call you slaves, for the slave does not know what his master is doing; but I have called you friends, for all things that I have heard from My Father I have made known to you.-John 15:16

"Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous! Do not tremble or be dismayed, for the LORD your God is with you wherever you go." -Joshua 1:9

Then I will live among the people of Israel and be their God,-Exodus 29:45

While I can't agree with your berating comments about God's children who chose to reject Him, I can say that the "prove there's a God" thread has more of the same to offer as this one, only faster.

To believe that the very basis for someone's entire worldview can be separated from what their decisions are based on is a complete disconnect from reality. Until we are governed by machines you aren't going to see a true separation between church and state.

Yep, the evidence differs - mine exists, yours doesn't.
I chuckle at your defeat.
Will you never learn to avoid taking me on? It always ends in embarassement for you.
Wrong, both exist and your lies only mean you are lying to big up you own egotestical (correct spelling) delusion as can be expected from a no brain like you.

Honey we can all claim to win by cherry picking only the bits that suite us, the hard part, the part you have real difficulty with is all the rest, i.e. the facts.

Chuckle all you want, it makes no difference to your delusions and it may even get you an appointment with the prison psychiatrist

Say what? You have never beaten me. You have of course made the claim you have beaten me (lies) every time you open your mouth because you cannot abide the fact that a mere woman has kicked your a$$, sorry honey but delusion is not reality.

Example, I provide three popes to your one archbishop to prove you wrong
In retaliation for your defeat you made up BS and lies about a claim I never made

Example, your refusal to consider Stalin’s early and late life because the few years of the revolution suites your delusion far better.
You refusal to acknowledge the facts that contradict your dream made you a laughing stock

Example, your refusal to consider the Vatican and the facts in Hitler’s religion because the 1960’s and 70s BS made up by good christians to ease their conscience suites your sensibilities better.
For that you provided pages and pages of copy and paste from the very books that make a mockery of history

Or how about the apples of eternity?
That was a buckism used to attempt to wriggle out of the facts, a buckism that backfired on you

Or YouTube proving god?
Today you are supposedly older and wiser, you refuse to talk about the fook up in your life, you have even been known to lie by denying it actually happened.

Or how about GM is alright for jews and christians but not for muslims
Why is this? Because you don’t like muslims. IN retaliation for that defeat you made up lies and ignorant abuse about my body

What does all this evidence boil down to, you are not as bright as you believe (dunning kruger syndrome comes to mind) and you are a poor loser

Try to be right about one thing. Just one thing. C'mon, you can do it!
That is not what you used to tell me and others, have you changed your views and forgot to tell everyone else?

Creationism is a belief, a faith, and part of several religions.

Note you will never see an atheist creationist – see above

Impossible.
Expanding for 13.7 billion years (or any finite time) at any speed results in a travel of a finite distance.
If it accerated to 13 billion times faster than that speed, for 13 billion times 13 billion years, the result would be a finite distance.
And that distance would be no closer to infinite distance than with the expansion's first movement.
The expansion would be no nearer to infinite distance than the expansion occurring when you inflate a soccer ball. No closer.
Congratulations. You found another way to lose this argument. Bravo.
Why is the universe, as measured from the BB event 46 billion light years across and yet that event happened only 13.7 billion years ago?

Perhaps another little snippet to confuse your tiny mind, faster than light travel? Does it jar with your logic (and I use the word in the loosest possible sense) like expanding infinity and infinite apples?

No one is saying the observable universe is infinite, but space is infinite as indicated by measurements of the WMAP experiment.

LOL I haven't lost the argument bozo, you just are too clueless to understand.
The distance is only finite within the event horizon, anything beyond it is at infinity.
Yes you will only travel a finite distance, but to get to the target you will have to travel an infinite distance.

Wrong.
If something is expanding, it cannot be infinite.
No sequence of addition can be infinite.
What is the expansion immediately preceding its becoming infinite?
Add 1. The result is the next finite value, not infinite.
Take that value. Add 1. The result is the next finite value, not infinite.
Repeat this process forever. When will it become infinite? Answer? Never
When you have repeated this sequence for the age of the universe, the resulting distance of expansion is,...
Finite.
Repeat the sequence a billion times longer than the age of the universe, and the resulting distance is,...
Finite.
Speed it up. The result is,...
Finite.
After doing this, how much nearer to an infinite expansion are you?
Answer:
No nearer.
Wrong

As long as all groups get to use the public property, fine. They have done that in several cities and boy do the christians cry when anyone else gets to say their peace.

Christians put up a sign saying, "You need Jesus!" and all is well, but when Atheists put up, "Jesus is a myth"!!! Wow, what a bunch of cry babies christans become!

I suppose I could find something from Melville that I could cherry pick and come up with alleged implications, I would have to have a more direct set of verses, in context.

Even if you have a, "personal relationship" with god/jesus, that is still a religion.
