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.

Funny how war crimes hearings are looking more and more likely to the extent that Netanyahu has asked US lawyers to defend Israel on court.

God did what he wanted and made the oceans out of salt.
What?

The oceans are made out of 2 parts hydrogen (the most abundant element in the universe) to one part oygen, i,e, H2O (water), they contain about 3.5% salts and around 80 other chemical elements including uranium and gold.

Just keeping you on subject inspite of your lie that our responses were not about God's judgment on the evil Gazan schemes. You denial is not a rational response honey.

You already know about the rockets in UN facilities, why waste time.

The lind was a rational explanation of the Israeli/Palestinian situation. Are you confused?

I can see you have no grasp of science, E=MC^2 works, it is proven to work and you actually use it in several different ways to post you denial of it – so hypocritical
Do you have any evidence that god creating anything? NOPE, what you have is belief that god created the universe and you let that believe limit you education. Belief is not evidence... get over yourself.
And more lies from you because I specifically quote Revelation 19:6 (KJV) note that “K J V”– it means King James Version and is the definitive babble from which most other modern English translations are adapted. I really do not give a toss about some cloned and bastardized NIV book that somehow seems to omit everything from the original book that offends the sensibilities of a certain group of godbots.
Here is a comparison between you cut down and bastardised babble and the KJV http://www.ecclesia.org/truth/m-m.html I hope it helps you relise how limited your religious education is.
Where is your evidence that E=MC2 proves God cannot be omnipotent?

Are you really that thick or have you have never met a circumcised jew? Half the Jewish population have had their genitals mutilated. Oh wait a moment, perhaps you think that’s OK because they are men?
As I told butt crack a couple of posts ago, I suggest you google Eritrea and do a little research
Eritrea: Religious Distribution (2002) indicates that Christianity makes up 63% of the population with Islam making up 37%.
Eritrea: female genital mutilation of 35 to 39 year olds is 92.6% and of 15-19 year olds is 78.3%.
Do the maths
FGM is a cultural and tribal act and is not bounded by religion. I really do think you have been allowing the babble to interfere with reading those ‘learning’ books.
Circumcision is a medical procedure, not genital mutilation.

Get a grip.

So you don’t actually know much about what happened outside you back yard do you?... Fair enough
It is not written in any mythology that jesus exited at all. In fact other than the babble there is absolutely no mention of him.{SNIP}
Wrong. There are quite a few Roman historians that wrote about Jesus.

Were they in the Bible, Chrissy?

The Vatican has called on Muslim leaders to denounce unambiguously the persecution of Christians and Yazidis in Iraq – and hinted that it is considering breaking off dialogue with Islamic representatives if they fail to do so.

In a statement on Tuesday, the department in charge of inter-religious dialogue said: "The dramatic situation of the Christians, the Yazidis, and other minority religious and ethnic communities in Iraq demands that religious leaders, and above all Muslim religious leaders, people engaged in inter-religious dialogue and all people of good will take a clear and courageous stance. All must be unanimous in their unambiguous condemnation of these crimes and denounce the invoking of religion to justify them."

In a departure from its customary language in the highly sensitive area of inter-faith relations, the Vatican statement asked: "Otherwise, what credibility will religions, their followers and their leaders, have? What credibility could the inter-religious dialogue [which has been] patiently pursued in recent years have?"

Did he do what he wanted when he created disease, birth defects, ebola and the like?
Not very smart for a God, I would expect the world he is alleged to create to be perfect rather than imperfect; but god does have a "bad hair " day every now and then I suppose.
After all... you're here aren't you?
Do you enjoy selling Jesus on the Internet and failing miserably?
I believe there's a term for that called flagellation.
Ask any Catholic... They will tell you all about them.
The more education a person has the less religiosity. I don't say this to be demeaning to you only that I think you do not understand science.
Science questions everything, it experiments, it relies on accurate results, science is never satisfied.
I will admit that it is possible for some people to be born with their brain 'hardwired' for a God... and logic/reason cannot not sway them. I believe they yearn for immortality.
I wonder why religious people like yourself bother to attend an atheist forum.
To what purpose does this serve?
Is it idle curiosity about atheism or a method to attack those who do not share your faith?
I consider myself agnostic and would never waste my time posting anything in any religious forum.

All living biological things die. It’s a part of the life cycle that you learned in school. Be it flowers, trees, grass, animals, and humanity there’s will be an end to life and it comes through illnesses.

Illness has a way of taking the cockiness & arrogance out of someone. Putting that aside mankind has made great strides in treating diseases and many diseases are preventable. Man has also had more to do with killing himself than God did.

Some people do a much better job than others in taking care of their body. Some do a very poor job as those who smoke for example. Other examples mans overt use of asbestos pre 1990’s in just about every building product known. Scientist knew it would cause cancer but it was used anyway.

Sexually Transmitted Diseases which could include Ebola & AIDs can be prevented by abiding by the laws of God established in the Old Testament. Lack of discretion and multiple sex partners has killed billions. But you want to blame mans indiscretions on God?

This forum is open to everyone providing they follow Topix rules. You don’t own it and I don’t own it. God has been worshipped since the beginning of mankind. Adam was the first man and first biologist. Therefore he was the first scientist. You are a descendant of Adam and Noah’s children.

I enjoy sparring with Atheist. The downside is most Atheist are predictable and unable to think for themselves. They do a very poor job of reading & comprehending. Very seldom if ever does an Atheist answer a question. The reason? They can’t and that’s what makes this enjoyable.

The only war crimes involved in this conflict are by Hamas.

That's what muslims do. That's their reason to exist.

Israel has shown incredible restraint, and superb humanitarianism.

Netanyahu should get the Nobel Prize for Peace.

Hold your breath till Israel is convicted of something.

Israel is going to have to occupy Gaza. The Palestinian Authority has proven they can’t govern the people. Israel is going to have to annex the whole damn area. I feel sorry for the victims on both sides especially the children. But Israel has no choice but to take it over and bring peace to the region.

On another subject, what a freaking mess Iraq has turned out to be. ISIS are a bunch of thugs and it just makes me mad what they are doing to the Kurds. This is why we need to keep and bear arms in the United States. If the Kurds had been armed they wouldn’t have been a easy target.

It’s been one botched decision after another from the State Department. I didn’t want us to get into a war with Iraq the second time but Saddam didn’t help matters. He would still be in power if he had mislead the UN inspectors. It looks like we are going to have to stay in the region.

We should close down some of our European bases and just make a permanent base in Afghanistan and the same in Iraq. We will have to do what Israel is going to have to do in Gaza, take it over.

Scooter, your book is a hell of a lot more far fetched than ours.
Take your skate board back home. You have a game of angry birds waiting for you.

From the examples in your comments it is obvious you do not understand a thing about evolution and yet you seem to relish parading your ignorance so others can see it. You remind me of people who still believe the Earth is flat. The fundamental characteristic of ignorance is being unaware of one's own ignorance.

You seem to believe that USA has the right to take whatever land it wishes from around the world and make bases out ot them as it pleases. And just where did you get this idea? And you still wonder why most people from around the world dislike, or downright hate good ol' USA? How would you feel if China did just that in Hawaii or Alaska?
