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.

English isn't your first language is it? Some of those aren't even real words.

Btw I unlike you have read the bible several times. I am well versed in the apologetic arguments regarding the iron chariots. Ahem. God stopped at the iron chariots because the Hebrews sinned right? That's what you were thinking yes?

Huge problem though. See the passage doesn't mention God not helping because they sinned not does it even say they sinned. It says he couldn't help them in the valley because the enemy had iron chariots, not because they sinned, not because one ate some shrimp, not because a soldier didn't say Oy Vey at the right moment just iron chariots. But wait it gets worse using that apologetic argument because if they sinned what was the point of helping them in the mountains?

See when you weave your apologetic lies and wild speculation you find yourself making excuses for God. If God was unable to express the iron chariots thing properly relying on others to clean up his mess, then he certainly isn't worth worshipping even if he existed.

<quoted text> So you expect God to write down every single thing he does when he can't even get you to read what little he does write about. Do you know he raised the dead, and your whinning about him not putting down replacing an amputees arm The iron chariots you talk about is so easy to comprehend so it would be an insult to you if I explained it to you. Listen man just study and you'll find out all about the iron chariots and what he's trying to explain to you about this in the correct perspective, you can do it if you'll just study snd when you get the right sndwer you and I will be proud of your accomplishment.

That's easy.
Once, while visiting her at Leisure World, I heated some coffee in her microwave. I entered "60" and hit start. She had always entered "100," which is converted to "1:00" - same thing - but with one more keystroke.
My mother carried on about how clever and efficient I was for several minutes, even telling a friend of hers in front of me. It was Seinfeld-esque.
That's a mother's love.
That's easy.

Now, tell me friend, why should we accept your story as a mother's love? You have not proven that the story is true or that you even ahve a mother. But, then let's say that no proof is required, then my story about God is just as valid on top of 100s of stories that are way more powerful.

If yo say that my stories about God existence and love have an explanation, then likewise your mother could have been lying and besides she could be some stranger who found you on the streets at age 1 and assumed the identity.

So, that was easy, you have no proof.

Francis Collins is an evolutionist (in your words).
He wrote a book on evolution!!!
And in that book he said "people who don't believe in evolution are not educated."
You didn't read his book on evolution, did you?
You left this on the table.
Hidingfromyou:
I am a foolish liar. You said that you do not know any gays. So, all those people you mentioned you never introduced them to me! Have you ever sat down with a gay friend and talked to them about me?
I have many issues with my parents and the abuse they visited on me. Have you ever talked to an insane person about why they are not stable and how they struggle with relationships? Yeah, that is me. It's hard to deal with all my baggage.
Sometimes I think about men. Like the butcher at the grocery store was gay too. No, like you said, you do not know any gays who like me, but I wish they would. Actually, I am sorry, I need mental help. All I can think to talked about is homosexuality and pedophilia, my lovely only two childhood experiences since I was very, very so young.
Does anyone know what kind of help I can get? I much need help. I am so sorry for troubling you all. Every word I type is full of pain. Misery is all I know.
Why are you still posting to me, the liar?

<quoted text>You become offended, but in fact, many see a cartoon vserion of evolution. Consider this, based on evolution theory, a black hole must have caused a Big Bang to explode into our universe, which then banged further into our world. But, since we no that the gaseous and elemental formations in space, the black hole and even in stars is quite different from earth, then earth must have been without form and ability to sustain life. It must have had a gaseous combustible atmosphere. So, now earth is here, no life and no form, no air, no water, no plants, no cloud formations in the air, no rain, no day and no night, since light could not exist and no time. Now, explain what happened from this point.
Evolution theory has nothing to do with black holes, the big bang or how the earth was formed.

I have never heard of a hypothesis of a black hole causing the big bang. Where did you hear that?

Why would the earth be without form? If it is a planet, it has form. Why do you think earth had no water? I know of no science claims that hold this. Why would it have no day or night? If the sun formed before the earth, it would thus have a day and night.

How can we move on from a point that you claim, when no science agrees with your claims?

If a god or gods were involved in the creation of the world we find ourselves in, they weren't yours. Yours didn't use a big bang or evolution. Neither did Marduk or Odin.
preterism wrote:
What did my God use?
Magic, by my reckoning. It's in Genesis 1 and 2 if you want to read about it, summarized below. That story is no closer to correct than the Marduk and Odin versions. See for yourself:

[1] MARDUK (Babylonian) "The mighty Marduk took his club and split Tiamat’s body in half. He placed half of her body in the sky and made the heavens (space). He created the moon to guard the heavens, and set it moving back and forth, on endless (time) patrol (energy). With the other half of Tiamat's body he made the land.(matter)" http://mesopotamia.mrdonn.org/marduk.html

[2] ODIN (VIKING) "Odin, Vili, and Vé killed the giant Ymir. The sons of Bor then ... made the world (matter) from him. From his blood they made the sea and the lakes; from his flesh the earth; from his hair the trees; and from his bones the mountains. They made rocks and pebbles from his teeth and jaws and those bones that were broken. Maggots appeared in Ymir's flesh and came to life (life). By the decree of the gods they acquired human understanding and the appearance of men, although they lived in the earth and in rocks. From Ymir's skull the sons of Bor made the sky (space)... The sons of Bor flung Ymir's brains into the air, and they became the clouds. Then they took the sparks and burning embers that were flying about after (time) they had been blown out of Muspell, and placed them in the midst of Ginnungagap to give light to heaven above and earth beneath (energy). To the stars they gave appointed places and paths." http://www.pitt.edu/~dash/creation.html

[3] JEHOVAH-JESUS (Christian) "In the beginning, God created the universe. At first the earth was shapeless and covered in darkness, and God's spirit hovered over the waters. God said, "Let there be light". And there was light. God divided the day from the night, naming them ' day' and 'night'. This was the first day and God saw that it was good. On the second day God made the heavens to separate the water from the earth and on the third day he raised the dry land up from the waters below the heavens and commanded the earth to bring forth all plants. God saw that it was good. God then made the greater light for the day and the lesser light for the night, and he saw hat it was good. This was the fourth day. On the fifth day God commanded the waters to fill with living creatures and the air to fill with birds. And he was pleased with what he saw. On the sixth day God commanded the earth to bring forth all kinds of living creatures and he saw that it was good. God then said " Let us make man in our own image". So God created man and woman in his own likeness and gave them authority over all living things. God looked at everything he had made and was very pleased. On the seventh day, God rested." - Genesis

How so? Who says other animals get no pleasure from the hunt and capture of an animal?
It stands to reason humans get pleasure from it because his instincts drive him to hunt for food, thus the pleasure chemicals is what gives him the drive to do so.

Is abortion a part of evolution, and if so, then would ending abortion also be a part of evolution? What about husbands who beat their wives, because physically they can, is it inteference in evolution if a judge sentences the man for acting on his natural selection strength? What about AIDS and suicide is that part of evolution?
If abortion leads to the extinction of man or a physical change in man, then yes, it is evolution. Be it artificial or natural. It is still evolution. I do not see it making any of these changes, so the point is irrelevant.
Same goes for wife beating and judges.

In fact, it is only the atheist who keep evolution mytha alive. The scientific truth is that scientists question abiogenesis and none of them dismiss an idea of a creator or a God who wold have started it all.
Many theists believe in evolution. In fact, the Catholic church now officially says evolution is true. I am quite sure they are not atheists.

If you wish to believe a god started life, fine. Just do not call it science. It is religious faith.
