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.

You have bitterness that goes beyond Atheism. A personal vendetta with the same God you say doesn’t exist. A blood feud that’s personal with you.

Your life has been on hold because of your spitefulness.

Swallow your pride and humble yourself before God. You need deep seated healing in your soul and you know what I’m talking about. God will forgive you and heal your brokenness.

You just can’t afford to carry this hate around forever.

I'd like to share your optimism that organized religion will cease to be relevant in the near future, but humans are still far too primitive and superstitious to consider abandoning their faith at the level you envision. As long as the fear of death persists in the human psyche, the masses will cling to any instructions that gives them solace from the uncertainty of death.
Interesting take, you could be correct.:-)

Fear of death is decidedly the proverbial 'glue'
That holds the entire charade together

Immortality(a powerful goal)is a not too much of a stretch UNTIL, One seriously the concept of heaven.

Not one religious person views heaven/paradise the same.

Each have their own 'personal' dream without considering that even the most everyday questions here, morph into a conflict of logic.

Example:
Your daughter dies prematurely, by default, she achieves heaven. Some 20+ years fly by and mom dies also achieving heaven. Can the daughter marry and bear children? Are there working toilets?
What is the common food diet there?
If anyone in your family achieves heaven, will a 16th century family member know you?

Therin lies the problem with heaven, much like the problem with Evil, which this god deemed necessary.

Heaven, is a individual concept, and quite unresolvable in the larger context.

Hell is there to scare the bejesus out of you, and meld your mind to the fantasy offered, regardless of which religion you are raised into.

Take from the church the miraculous, the supernatural, the incomprehensible, the unreasonable, the impossible, the unknowable, the absurd, and nothing but a vacuum remains.

The vendetta is not against God,the vendetta is against proponents of organized religion who some feel marginalized or victimized by. Whether or not that is justified or not is another issue.
The attacks on God or denials of the existence of God are just used as a weapon to annoy believers.All of this is pretty obvious.That is clearly the case for some of the more extreme posters.

Who deemed Creationists the only way to interpret the Bible?

The first verse describes the big bang. Something scientists just confirmed this year.

Sounds like a fact to me...

From a historical viewpoint it is impossible to determine Hitlers true beliefs on religion as was influence by Catholic Church, Social Darwinism, Racism and Friedrich Wilhelm Nietzsche writings.
Hitler was a notorious liar on all subjects. "Hitlers Table Talk" may be of some value
http://www.archive.org/stream/HitlersTableTal...

Trolls of one variety or another, will often try to prove his beliefs, on a thread.
This would most likely not stand up in a graduate seminar at Oxford or Harvard.

It seems you got it all figured out. I haven’t met an Agnostic yet that doesn’t think he’s the smartest person in the room. And you an infidel are teaching us about heaven? Friend, about the only thing you can do right is wipe your own a**. That’s assuming you do that correctly.

If hell is a concept then you can tell us about it when you get there. I don’t send people to hell nor do I wish them to go to hell. But I also don’t send people on the train to Chicago. They pay and get on it by themselves. I don’t send them anywhere.

You are on the Southbound train my friend and I didn’t put you on it. You put yourself on it and when you wake up in flames you will have no one but yourself to thank. Oh sure it’s all a joke to you now because you are standing on your youth. But if you live long enough you won’t have your youth forever. It will fade away like it has on all those sitting in the nursing homes.

Life is like a vapor. It is here today and gone tomorrow. If enough days go by you will see as you get older. Nobody will give a sh*t about your philosophy. Nor will they care if you are sitting in your own piss at the long term care facility you’ll be residing in.

What goes around will come around. All the elderly that you are too good to acknowledge and visit in the local long term facility. Will die off lonely one by one with their past long forgotten. Just like it will for you. You’ll wonder while your diaper is full of diarrhea why young people are so disrespectful and arrogant. Never stopping to say hello or treat you like a real person. Then you’re going to remember these days where all you could think of was yourself. Life will come full circle for you my friend. It always does and it’s certainly will for you also.

So enjoy your cocky arrogant philosophy on life. That long term care facility will be waiting for you to check in and become the nobody you always were. You have absolutely nothing in this life to look forward too except the little freaking arrogance you enjoy right this very minute.

Every body that came to me when I was working in the morgue was dead. No exceptions.

There was no indication of religion or lack of religion. I didn't even know their names. They were assigned an alphanumeric code. One character designated male or female. That character was decided before I took them. It didn't matter to me.

Some were very old and some were very young but most were somewhere in between. Shuffle 'em in and shuffle 'em out.

Next.

"When your mother has grown old
and with her so have you,
When that which once came easy
has at last become a burden,
When her loving, true eyes
no longer see life as once they did
When her weary feet
no longer want to wear her as she stands,
then reach an arm to her shoulder,
escort her gently, with happiness and passion
The hour will come, when you, crying,
must take her on her final walk.
And if she asks you, then give her an answer
And if she asks you again, listen!
And if she asks you again, take in her words
not impetuously, but gently and in peace!
And if she cannot quite understand you,
explain all to her gladly
For the hour will come, the bitter hour
when her mouth will ask for nothing more."

Adolf Hitler, "Denk' es!" (Be Reminded!) 1923, first published in Sonntag-Morgenpost (14 May 1933).
