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.

On Dave TV.

"Why does gravity accelerate? Matter displaces space. More matter, more displacement. Bigger hole for space to fill. As objects, and their holes, get closer, there is less space for space to overcome."

HAhaHahHaH

Tell this to HL..... lmfao.

As objects, and their holes, get closer, there is less space for space to overcome.

But but .....

"In the absence of friction that hold us in place, we would rotate."

Yeah you are looking dizzy there Dave!

But what?

"You can move an object at right angles to gravitational pull, or you can make it think it is being moved."

Yeah but you just think you are still rotating!
HAhA HAH!

That is all opinion, mostly by folks who view Scripture as fiction until proven fact. Biblical mythers.
Yet the biblical details claiming the David rules an empire isn't an accurate depiction, the agreed upon consensus is that based upon archaeological evidence, and if David existed, the region of influence barely qualified as a small tribal kingdom.
Some suggest that David may have been a lifelong vassal of Achish, the Philistine king of Gath.
Some suggest the universe created itself. Does not make it true. Some suggest atheism is logical. A negative position which cannot be proven based on an appeal to ignorance.

It's the opinion, backed by reference from wikipedia, that I've supplied numerous times. Work done by archaeologists and experts in the field. You should supply the other opinions that refute or offer alternative explanations then, shouldn't you?

So far, all you really do is say - "NUH UH!".

LULZ...

If you can't rebut the information, then you are doing nothing more than protesting.

That's fine, concede the point. As it is you've not refuted it.
scaritual wrote:
Hardly the descriptions put forth in the biblical account, which makes you wonder just how accurate anything is in the bible.

Is it nothing but embellishment after embellishment?

Would apologists admit that if it were?

Doubtful.

As a matter of fact, apologists don't, in spite of the evidence.

"Today more than 90% of scholars agree that there was no Exodus from Egypt, 80% feel that that the Conquest of the Land did not take place as described in the Bible, and about 50% agree that there was no powerful United Monarchy." - Professor Israel Finkelstein, The Bible Unearthed.

Not to mention there are hundreds of Muslim made movies, tv shows, plays all mocking the Jews their beliefs. Even children's tv shows over there bash the Jews! It looks like they got a small taste of their own medicine and couldn't take it.

Just exterminate them all. After all they cannot accept criticism a joke , a stupid movie, being called on unjust or humanitarian matters, foreigners in their country , anything that upsets their view of Allah, poking fun at Mohammad , taking pictures of then licking their camels ass, Jews praying at the dome of the rock, Jews being in Israel, Jews minding their own business. And Jews Period. Americans anywhere else , Americans anywhere in America , America....The fact they are paid attention, the fact they have not been paid attention.
Seems to me... some people are.. just fucking impossible to get along with.

Can you read?

The court held that the prosecution failed to prove beyond a reasonable doubt that it was a forgery. As in, not guilty, but not necessarily innocent. I know that this distinction will be too hard for you to understand.

And the court did not declare it to be authentic.

Looks like evolution could have been on the fast track. A certain mind over matter aspect to force adaptation without having to wait for random mutations.

You have no idea how emotion based your logic is.
Science has flourished under Christianity. Almost non-existent under pagan civilizations such as Rome. Explain that.
Yes, Dave, and you arrive at your conclusions via a robotic, cold logic that relies on mathematical equations and not at all on your desire to see evidence of god in everything around you.

There's no point in arguing about this idiot politician. He agrees with you, so you will back up anything he says, no matter how stupid and unacceptable.

Another double standard. Once again if a Christian responds emotionally to being called uneducated, liar, bigot, etc..
they get berated non-stop. I say equal treatment across the board. I Christians are retard for following a zombie god , then the Jews are retarded for following an even more outdated vengeful asshole of a god, and the Muslims are [email protected] braindead for killing people over a criticism of a prophet let alone their camel riding desert dwelling murderous allah. We can't forget about the Wiccans which are just fairy loven nudist tree [email protected] hippies or the Atheists and their nihilistic belief system and egocentric condescending attitudes.
