Atheism requires as much faith as religion?

Full story: Webbunny tumblelog

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.

Atheism DOES require faith.
Exactly! It is pure blind faith! They have never proved anything! NEVER! But we follow blindly, just because we don't what to listen to your gods.

Lol, Dave. Nice link.
Really, I'm not sure if coffee or chocolate is good for me or if they cause cancer. It does seem that every other day a new scientific "study" is telling me something different....

Black holes are not part of the dark matter. That is one aspect that we do know (if it were, the effects on the background radiation would be quite different).

Belief in anything without proof is faith. The closest thing to proof, has become new captures with new equipment by paranormal investigators. Believe them or not, it's still closer to proof than an atheistic philosophy.

Black holes are proven in the sense that there are compact gravitational sources that are so small that they cannot be anything else. Similarly, the location of dark matter can actually be mapped out using gravitational lensing techniques. The main issue with dark matter is its composition, not whether it exists. Even there, we know it cannot interact strongly with electromagnetism and it does interact via gravity.
These are no 'faith' in the sense of religious faith. This is using actual observations, comparing it to our models of how gravity and electromagnetism (as well as particle physics, etc) to understand what we see. Past the initial speculation, we have many follow-up observations that confirm that both black holes and dark matter exist and many of their properties.
You mean black holes aren't soul sucking, super dense alien ice cream makers?!?

Riverside Redneck told me they were!

Go on, poly. Excuse it all you want. Black hole & dark matter have NOT been proven. So then how could they "explain" anything? How could they be "evidence" for anyhting? Atheists don't have faith in the religious sense, but they DO have faith...
Writing to you is like beating a dead salamander.

1. Einstein's theories predict black holes
2. Einstein's theories on relativity have not been shown to be incorrect, ever (in fact all GPS systems rely on them every moment, so his theory is tested every time someone uses a GPS device)
3. We can measure how stars move
4. We have found massive objects that manipulate stars, are extremely small and utterly dark
5. These things do exactly as Einstein's theories predict: they suck in matter and energy, spray matter and energy away, shine in X-ray production (except for the hole, which is dark) and so on.
6. For all intents and purposes they are black holes

Yet here you are saying "no, we can't prove it! We can't, we can't, we can't!"

Well, that's cute and sweet of you, baby, but your protest isn't worth noting.

Hiding, you can post all the genius' conjecture all you want.
You can also insult me all you want.
What you can't do is:
Prove black holes.
Prove dark matter.

I wasn't actually insulting you above, but describing how hard it is to communicate with you, since you don't seem capable of understanding how science works. This might constitute insulting you, if you think that you actually understand science or learn quickly.

But now that I know I can insult you all I want, with your permission, wooohhoooo!

Good point. That's why I posted links to archaeologist's discussing their findings that the pyramid laborers weren't slaves. You subsequently denied this without any evidence.

I'm curious, does the Bible actually say "The Jews built those damn pyramids"? I ask for two reasons:

1. If not, there's no reason (for you) to argue that the pyramid laborers were slaves
2. Egypt had slaves, they were just doing other stuff. If the Bible doesn't actually say that the Jews were building the pyramids, why can't you assume they were household slaves?

Doesn't the Bible claim that Jews lived in houses as slaves in Egypt? It says something about putting the mark on the door of each house where a Jewish family lived so God, who is supposed to be omniscient, wouldn't kill their firstborn son?

The laborers who worked on the pyramids seem to have lived in dorms, not houses.
