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.

Of course not.

We were simply reading from Deuteronomy 64:7.

I was just getting ready to follow up with Mark 18:23.

<quoted text>NO really? What was the context of that post? If you are referring to the one by me then it should be easy to figure out, for at the end of the comment that I made about "god" and storms, I said that god must be afraid of storms.
Way to pay attention.
Nope, I don't think that was it at all. In fact I don't remember that one, I may have missed it, but topix has not been on my to do list very much lately. Too much real world to deal with.

<quoted text> Can you prove that a creator isn't needed ? You think with the knowledge and wisdom you have as a human being but you cannot create anything you see or don't see. Your wisdom is limited to what you see and don't see as God's wisdom and knowledge is beyond our ability to think as he does and that's exactly what he tells us in Isaiah 55: 8-11
For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the Lord. For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts.
For as the rain cometh down, and the snow from heaven, and returneth not thither, but watereth the earth, and maketh it bring forth and bud, that it may give seed to the sower, and bread to the eater:
So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it.
Cut it out.

When Science is confronted by the inexplicable, it is telling that it never resorts to the existence of a God to explain what it cannot - tacitly Science knows that God is not a creditable explanation for anything .... to God science says no .

Gays will be in Hell after their death. That's an important thing to remember.
I'm not tolerant of them , as you might can tell. Neither is God.
He forgives them if they repent, but He will throw them into Hell if they just keep on doing what they are doing.
Then he shouldn't have made them gay, should he?
And he shouldn't have made you a sinner?
And he shouldn't have made Jesus a bastard?
Let's throw him in hell!

The judging is the only way to make them, know their god is real, well except for the lying. By lying they try to prove the bible gods words, "all men are liars" as truth.
By doing the judging themselves, they give life to the god who does longer animate.

"As we can see, after 350 years of saying Jonah was in "hell," the New King James finally admitted he wasn't there after all. He was in Sheol, like everyone else who has died. Many people have come out of the grave. The Bible is full of examples"
It is a bit of TLDR.
Are you suggesting, that something as novel as using the truth, could actually work here?

Yes I agree but civilised behaviour has its dictates. There are extremes out there, perverts and religious nuts who get either sexually aroused or drop to there knees and pray. You can encounter both on these very pages.
Last week I watched a repeat of a program “My Breast and I” with Jenny Frost. She concluded the documentary in New York where public nudity is not illegal. The complains by christians and the goggle eyes of the gawkers said it all.
I haven't seen that one, I will have to check it out. How sad that.

I figured that if it was kept close to their version of "truth" then it may help.
