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.

Like I said, when it becomes a group, it becomes something else.

If you identify yourself as part of a group, then you lose your individual identity, You become a gang.

Don't bring your insanity to my land of the free, which is granted by virtue of my religion, and then try to assume gay insanity on us. Gays have the right to be gay as far as their door and skin reaches, when gays reached into my house and into my skin, then it is time to shut the gay closet door shut along with their hate.
What about all those gay friends you speak of? Do you "shut the gay closet dooor shut" on them? Whatever that means. It's time for you to open your gay closet door open.

Chewy toy?

I still like you. And btw, I have nothing against men. It's not their fault that they were born that way.

Good try.
"That was" is implied.
But I like that you are showing an interest in grammar.
It's about time!
Another improper sentence.

"Good try."

The teacher has a double standard. Itís ok for him to use improper grammar but itís not ok for me.

How did your friend figure the strength of a supposed 26,000 year old woman?
PUUHHH-LEASE
You honestly know next to nothing about this stuff, hey?

It's easy: you look at the bone density, muscle attachment sites and joint sizes.

Strong muscles compress bones, increasing the density (you see this not only in the mass of the bone, but in the cellular structure). Muscle attachment sites are either large (powerful muscles) or small (weak). Joints are mechanical in nature; there are mathematical relationships between the size of the parts and how much force they can take.

The above is how we know that neanderthals were so strong, they could crush the bones of your hand with a handshake. They were stronger than contemporaneous humans - but the woman my friend dug up was a human.

Near death experience. Doesn't count. Nothing even vaguely supernatural happens in reality, but upon dying -yahoo!- the metaphysical carnival begins. Hope you reincarnate in Camden, New Jersey.

Yup. Naive... That's all you've got? Because I'm for from naive, young man. I look at things objectively, I don't blindly follow like you people do.
You're pretty naive about science and religion. Look at your comments - you actually believe that your inability to imagine something and your lack of knowledge of something are arguments against that thing.

They're not. It just means you don't know what you're talking about (defining features of ignorant and naive).

It's all good, don't worry about it. I've already forgotten about it.

It's really quite simple. Death scares the shit out of you, so you'll cling to anything that will ameliorate the fear. Nothing new here.
