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.

Giving an animal a name make a person a zoologist? Now you are really stretching. What "scientific" things did he do that you or I could not do? I can name an animal. Hell, my kids named animals when they were two. You will have to do better than that.
Does an Astronomer have to have a University degree to do Astronomy? There are thousands of armature Astronomers and some have even made some rather interesting discoveries.

The Wright Brothers whom we have discussed here before were scientist. How could they not be? They were credited with building and flying the first airplane. In their regular jobs they were bicycle mechanics. But these two brothers were also scientist who gave birth to aeronautics.

It’s not prostitution as many may profess. It’s actually being a Zoologist.

Adam in the book of Genesis was the first scientist ever and he was a Zoologist by profession. He was given the task of naming the animals on the Earth. God created the first scientist and he was Adam.
Good luck with that.

Now if you want to think of my post as a strawman.....well do so....you have every right......but understand that it was just an example of your posts to me and what you are trying to say.....
Nothing of substance.
1. So why did you lie about censoring it?

2. The fact is, your post was a straw man argument. You avoided the logic of what I posted and postulated a stupid substitution in a vain attempt to shift the focus.

3. Your posts are nothing like my posts. You chose to respond to my post and then bailed when it was clear you have no rational response.

Classic 'rational atheist' oxymoron deceit and denial.

Well,'spiritual leader'(a double oxymoron) has bailed.

Isn't there a single 'rational atheist' oxymoron who can answer the challenge?

This isn't complicated, I simply asked how the recently understood details of the big bang theory confirm what the Bible noted thousands of years ago. How did they get in there?
Genesis 1:1-5 (NASB)
1 In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.
Here we have science confirming what the very first verse of the Bible states: There was a specific moment when the heavens and earth were created.
Interestingly, the article YOU referenced noted that there are likely additional universes in existence, something also predated by the Bible speaking of Heaven and Hell.
2 The earth was formless and void, and darkness was over the surface of the deep, and the Spirit of God was moving over the surface of the waters.
This verse notes that initially the earth was without form. Wow, NAILED that fact!
But get this! It notes two even more profound facts:
~The three most common elements are Helium, Nitrogen and Oxygen. "The Spirit of God was moving over the surface of the waters."
~"Darkness was over the surface of the deep." The article notes that light was restrained for hundreds of thousands of years!
"For the first 380,000 years or so, the universe was essentially too hot for light to shine. The heat of creation smashed atoms together with enough force to break them up into a dense plasma, an opaque soup of protons, neutrons and electrons that scattered light like fog."
3 Then God said, "Let there be light"; and there was light.
4 God saw that the light was good; and God separated the light from the darkness.
5 God called the light day, and the darkness He called night. And there was evening and there was morning, one day.
If you can't explain this, then simply say so, but I really expected a 'new age spiritual LEADER' to have a better grip on this...
Oh, something to think about down the road. The article notes the possibility that the universe could one day RETRACT! Something the Bible already noted...

When did religious bullshitters Evolve?
<quoted text>
They've been with us since the caveman days, I should think. Certainly pre-Xian, they BSed about the pagan gods around back then.

"A tyrant must put on the appearance of uncommon devotion to religion. Subjects are less apprehensive of illegal treatment from a ruler whom they consider god-fearing and pious. On the other hand, they do less easily move against him, believing that he has the gods on his side."
- Aristotle

Mellow out with some coffee

Chocolate Coffee Biscuit Brown

Chocolate coffee biscuit brown
See the dusky girl in town
Coffee mocha honey skin
Amber eyes are full of sin.

Black is dark and white is light
In between for just one night
Precious saffron taste of wine
Violet scented rose divine

Guilty pleasure, bittersweet
Enchanted eve where to worlds meet
Morning sunlight shining through
Door was open no-one knew.
