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.

It is quite obvious you know nothing about Einstein.
"It was, of course, a lie what you read about my religious convictions, a lie which is being systematically repeated. I do not believe in a personal God and I have never denied this but have expressed it clearly. If something is in me which can be called religious then it is the unbounded admiration for the structure of the world so far as our science can reveal it." ~Albert Einstein
"Thus I came...to a deep religiosity, which, however, reached an abrupt end at the age of 12. Through the reading of popular scientific books I soon reached a conviction that much in the stories of the Bible could not be true.... Suspicion against every kind of authority grew out of this experience...an attitude which has never left me." ~Albert Einstein
"I do not believe in immortality of the individual, and I consider ethics to be an exclusively human concern with no superhuman authority behind it." ~Albert Einstein
"I cannot imagine a God who rewards and punishes the objects of his creation, whose purposes are modeled after our own -- a God, in short, who is but a reflection of human frailty. Neither can I believe that the individual survives the death of his body, although feeble souls harbor such thoughts through fear or ridiculous egotism." ~Albert Einstein

Christian Mythology doesn't understand math.

Examples
1+1+1=1
0+0=something

Have you ever wondered how many light-years God just sat around thinking about doing something until he came up with your religions idea?

If there are no other gods this would be like being in solitary confinement would not?

Nothing to do but stare outside your own mind. I guess he got lonely or bored.

And decided to take his anger out with his creations.

He's even lousy at fatherhood.
Look how he treated his son!

Are you that stupid?
You just shuffled your "infinity" back to the end of the equation. You inserted infinity into the conclusion by inserting it into the premise.
Your theory now takes this form:
1. The universe expanded at an infinite rate because dividing infinite distance by 13.8 billion years = infinite speed.
2. The universe expanded to infinite distance because infinite speed x 13.8 billion years = infinite distance.
You prove the infinite universe by inserting it in the proof.
No ... a swing and a miss.

It's like this, Expansion at greater than the speed of light , creates a infinite distance between matter and energy and the expansion of space/time itself.
Even if you can calculate the distance as being a finite distance between the expansion and the observer , that rate cannot be matched, by any means.
So the distance between them is infinite.
In the case of our universe, inflation and then expansion caused a singular point to become the observable universe , but the universe expanded from an infinite number of points around it's horizon. All the equations are finite , but general relativity can make a finite distance infinite because of E=MC2 .

To compound this problem the expansion has occurred so fast , that future time exists way beyond our light horizon. It has already taken place , but because of the celestial speed limit, we cannot observe it till the light reaches us. But there is also a limit to what will ever be observed, that is the cosmological event horizon, and everything beyond that point.
Is absolutely beyond the largest number we can ever count to.
Therefore it is at infinity, and there is nothing you can do to change that.

Republican critics of Obamacare rose up in anger today, claiming that, after two months of fixes, the healthcare.gov Web site is now “unacceptably fast.”

Leading the howls of protest was the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform chairman Darrell Issa (R-Calif.), who accused President Obama of designing a Web site that operates at a “blistering, breakneck speed.”

“With pages loading in milliseconds, this Web site is insuring people before they know what hit them,” Rep. Issa charged.“Clearly, this is what the President and his team had in mind.”

Additionally, Rep. Issa said, at such high speeds “it is questionable whether this Web site is even safe for consumers to use, particularly the elderly.”

The California Republican said he would call for hearings this week to investigate the dangerous new velocity of healthcare.gov , telling reporters,“If anyone can slow this thing down, it’s me.”

What is the largest number before infinity?

Why can't you add one more to it?

You dodged the question.

In this sequence of expansion, what is the largest finite number?

If it expanded from a volume of near zero, there has to be a transition from finite to infinite.

What is the largest finite number that corresponds?

Why can't you add one to it?

It didn't have to become infinite from near zero, it already was.
The observable universe expanded and created the finite distance we see, but extends past the
light horizon, to where at the outermost limits an infinite number of expanding points are expanding also.

"What is the largest finite number that corresponds?"

There is no finite number before , there is always another addition or subtraction.
There could be a infinite series of numbers to which all of them are not enough.
Get the terms straight, an "infinitesimal" expanded infinitly into an infinite number of points expanding. It was never finite to begin with. It was infinitely reduced in reverse of what it is now.Instead of counting up, it was counting down...

You should remember that any religious building, church, mosque, Temple or synagogue sporting a lightning rod shows a startling lack of conviction and confidence.
When lightning strikes a church and burns it down why is it rebuilt? Wasn't this God's will to destroy it.?
You theists are truly hilarious and unintentionally funny but too deluded to comprehend why we find you amusing.
Religion is a disease. It is born of fear; it compensates through hate in the guise of authority, revelation. Religion, enthroned in a powerful social organization, can become incredibly sadistic. No religion has been more cruel than the Christian.
The interesting thing about that one, is that it wasn't originally the Xian God who fired off lightning bolts. It was the Roman head deity, Jupiter Optimus Maximus.

He can be quite intelligent (sometimes), certainly above the average level for a godbot. His problem is that he is clueless how to harness that inelegance. Can you imagine where he could go if only he was not so deliberately ignorant?

It was finite in volume, or distance.

You are trying to mix two different infinities, neither of which you have.

You can't go from infinitely small (infintesimal) to infinitely large without passing through finite numbers.

What was the largest finite number? Why couldn't you add 1 to it?

You are not equipped to discuss this.
