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.

Try frying hamburgers in bacon grease on a open griddle. Very good!
Fat American breakfast:
Stack of flapjacks, soaked in maple syrup
Coffee, two refills
OJ
Three eggs
Hash brown potatoes
Tomato
Steak, Ham sausage or bacon or all 4.
Cheesecake, topped with whip cream and cherries
And... A large diet soda
America is so fat that if the 'porkers' started running they'd leave a trail of potholes in their wake.
Alas, much too often, poor food consumed in large quantities :-(

If God was disproved already and you know it, why do you keep asking for proof of God?
I think it is because you are a dishonest, lying , ass-sniffing atheist bigot.

All 'atheists' are confused ( and angry). It's what defines and controls them.

In every country they are allowed in, Christians are voluntarily feeding and caring for others. And pray is an integral part of that.
You didn't know that???
You do know the Christians have an ulterior motive don't you? They are not feeding and caring for others out of the goodness of their hearts are they? Those missionaries are there for one reason only and that is to convert as many as they can. Be honest for once in your life at least "Pastor"...

Hmm, this is a very surprising post from you Khmer.

No Smile? How disappointing.:-(

I did enjoy your link however which was surprise.

Of course it does not sway me from my lifelong convictions, but I'm certain that youve already determined that long ago.

The only way I'll ever except the presence of any God is to shake its hand personally, but gods may not have hands to shake. who knows?

I do suggest that you take a few minutes to view this stunning video. The title alone may infuriate you, but we're talking super scientists discussing this, and the conversation and charts are quite compelling.

That's fine as long as you realize you can't spell "accept" and that you realize your inability to see that God exists is your downfall and why you will be in Hell.

Your welcome...my husband and I have both shared the same experiences with missionaries. While there are some I admit do good work, they have an ulterior motive. Many are forcing their belief system on groups that already have a belief system in place and putting them in grave danger. Their helping and feeding them comes with a great cost to the people they are supposedly trying to help. In the 60's the Church my husband went to sponsored groups of missionaries to Panama...out of their mouths at a slide show presentation "We were there to save the Heathen Catholics". In the late 80's and 90's the Church we went to sponsored groups to Venezuela, their most important mission in their words "build a church" and save the Catholics.

I was raised Catholic so I guess according to you people I need to be "saved" too!

I mean come on...why does every one have to believe the same you do?

Straw man. The Titanic accident happened in real time. No one got to build a lifeboat out of gopher wood. In the Noah story, god's genocide is premeditated, but Noah doesn't try to talk god out of it.

Religitards believe god drowned every baby not on the ark.
And they still worship the baby drowner!

Does that belief contribute to religious child abuse?

If you were on the Titanic and was given an opportunity to get yourself and your entire family in a life boat and you refused. Would that have been GodÂ’s fault or yours for not making an effort to save your family?

Why would I deny the Great Commission? Moreover, who is trying to hide it?

Now, do a Google search on Churches in your community. ALL those Churches are not just sending missionaries to do good works, they are doing good works and helping other in YOUR community! And you CONDEMN that???

And you sit there hypocritically judging them while doing NOTHING but spouting bitterness.

Welcome to the ambassador of the 'rational atheist' oxymorons...

I don't expect you to let facts sway your convictions.

1. The very foundation of the Christian faith is personal choice to accept God.

2. Jesus said their is a specific way to become a Christ follower.

.....30Aug14.....You are fulla schidt to the eyeballs.

Even if you profess to be an atheist ( no such thing ), why don't you miscreants
go and feed and care for others to convert as many as you can to your so-called
atheism.

Ps:.....Guess not. That would require physical work, and that is something
self-professed atheists don't have much time for. They are as lazy as the
day is long.

Just sayin'

.....30Aug14.....and just how insecure you are ' cuntlinguist' as a self-proclaimed atheist
( no such thing )... to include a ' disclaimer ' so as people looking in might think that your
spelling is atrocious. Your amusement...bah..humbug.

.....30Aug14.....While Heeenglish is NOT the native language of Tuco Blondie, its pretty
easy to keep up with most of these self-proclaimed eeejits.

Ps:.....and this other excuse for having reasoning included a ' disclaimer ' so as not to
draw attention to other members thinking that he made spelling errors. What a joke.
