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.

I think evolution is more befiting a real God than a magic trick with clay figures.
If we believe in our Creator, then we must believe HE is brilliant above and beyond our comprehension as such. We need the nutrients of the earth, we all know that, so why would it be hard to believe that we were created from the earth? More sense than being a relative of a dark ages fishy :)

Now your temple is guarded by an imaginary host , and you a slave to

Exactly your point? I responded to this point you made or have you already changed your mind?????

"It's time to put down your bible and run away from the churches and mosques and synagogs , they are the damnation and destruction of humanity."

Exactly your point is what??

Yes he told me this. No God likes his people to be informed and no it was in 33AD as you must be referring to the false doctrine knoown as the Catholics religion. The church was established on 33AD, you would know this if you have read your bible. Go to Acts and read Acts chapter 1 and 2 and you'll know that you made a mistake in time. cThe catholic church is the second biggest deceiver of mankind, the first is the Quran.

I see hmm, I see you have no idea what happened in 325 AD, and what it specifically means about your precious book and it's contents you hold so close to heart. But as I said religion prefers you to remain oblivious to it.

God's word is for all to read. It soesn't take a priest to help you understand as the catholic religion would have you to believe that only certain people like there priest, which is false. The Church of Christ started on 33AD . 41 Those who believed what Peter said were baptized and added to the church that day—about 3,000 in alL, Acts 2:41

Because he never heals an amputee or someone born without a limb. Never a single account of God regrowing a limb for someone. Creating the universe? No problem for God! But regrow a limb on someone? Hey let's not get nuts even God has his limitations like iron chariots

God also hates shrimp. Fact.

GET YOUR FACTS RIGHT.
Why don't you get your facts straight? from a blog site, skeptics, puhleez, you have no credibility.
But, even your site does not say what you project.
Right here, it says that it is 30% atheists, and 30% I do not know (agnostics). If you followed my blogging, I have pointed out that most atheist scientists soon move into the agnostic category or I do not know. So, if you want to come at me, try to do better than some blog site, without credibility and that does not support your position.

FROM YOUR SITE:
Moving down a step in terms of scientific street cred, there was also a 2007 paper which surveyed 1,646 academic scientists at 21 top universities on their belief in god. Their findings show rates of atheism at about 30% and agnosticism also at 30%, and find that the rates are not dependent on academic discipline; academic scientists in the natural and social sciences have similar rates of atheism.
In contrast to the high rates of atheism among academic professionals, there was a study carried out by The Pew Forum on religious belief in the general population along with several other social factors, including education. 17% of American adults surveyed identified as "unaffiliated" and only 1.6% of the population said that the were atheists and 2.4% agnostic.

Backwards projection. The percentage of atheists among scientists is much higher than the percentage of atheists in the general populace.
What you should have said is that there are no honest informed creationists, a fact that has been demonstrated many times over.
Absolute denial and desperation. Why would I say anything about the percentage of scientists, since your gay bias group never mentions the percentage of gays that are pedophiles compared to the general population. I am still way smarter than Hiding, a fact she has admitted to, on many occasions. It is funny, how convenience always seems to fall in the realm of your desperation.

What you should have said is that all gays are liars and that there are no honest atheists period, a fact that has been demonstrated since the time your gang first tried your flat earth bull.

So the feeling of euphoria is spontanous?
Or does something have to cause it?
I think the latter.
When God touched me, I was whatever is opposite of euphoric & at the snap of a finger, I felt content.
it was not imagined. I'm not lying. Have faith.
It's a reaction to a chemical that cells produce as a method of survival, allowing the whole body to relax momentarily reduces the stress on the cell structures thereby allowing them to survive longer, and allowing you to survive longer. This is very basic biochem. The triggers evolved over time, of course that's plainly obvious, if a threat cause the euphoria then that animal would die quite quickly. The cause is simply chemical reactions, nothing more.

Why should he heal your amputated limb? You don't believe, so you should ask your daddy satan to do your healing. Don't come to my dad's house and ask him for an allowance either.

Fact? Why do you say GOD hates shrimps?

You think GOD hates amputees because their limbs do not grow back again? Perhaps you are unaware of the nervous system in our limbs..... Do you think GOD hates starving children too?

I have a friend missing an arm. Pray for it to grow back.
Why should we? You are missing salvation, so pray for your soul to be saved. It is better that your friend goes to heaven with one arm and you join her, than for the two of you to go to hell with all limbs intact. Remember, you are the fish, you don't get to decide.

He thinks whatever you hallucinate him to think. That's how mental illnesses work.
