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.

You once again are lying. You are obsessed with God or else you would be enjoying your so-called liberation from religion, but nope, you're right here ARGUING with Christians out of staggering fear that you are wrong.

You failed, again.

“It must be quite galling for religious people to see atheists like me going about their business without a shred of guilt or self-loathing, and not in the least inclined to pray or to do penance of any kind, and not in the slightest bit worried about any form of eternal punishment. I have to admit if I was religious I'd probably think to myself: "How come I've got all this weight on my shoulders while these bums are getting a free ride?" – Condell
No guilt eh. Yes even atheists when they do something very wrong yes you do feel guilt and you work at fixing the problem just like Christians. We live our life like Jesus and this helps keep your mind on doing the right thing.

What is "very wrong"? Atheists and Christians may disagree here.

How do Christians fix problems, when they try? Atheists do not pray, for one thing.

Secular ethics and morality are not the same as religious equivalents. If you are looking for human universals, that's a good discussion to have. What is true of all of us? This is a harder question than finding the subjective truths, and differentiating between them.

If that's what you're looking for from me, you've strayed far from your path.

They've substituted prayer with actions of hatred. We have school and public shootings to prove that.

Atheists are universal terrorists. One took action by shooting up people who were simply wanting to watch a movie in a theater.

He was an atheist performing the deeds he was encouraged and coached to do most likely by atheist students and professors in his college.

Wouldn't surprise me if he was an atheist poster right here.

Hi JR.

If this is your way of asking me to go to the movies with you, the answer is no.

How was the atheist response violent? You were merely asked if you were truly going to follow in Jesus' footsteps. The poster did not threaten you with nailing you up to the cross personally.

By the way, there are some extremists that do go to that extent voluntarily.

And when it comes to violence that is usually the "Christian" side. I have never threatened any theist, but I have been threatened and I have seen theist joke about attacking atheists.

I don't have "belief in atheism."
And I don't require any faith.
I just don't believe in the supernatural. I don't believe in hexes, ghosts, astrology, witches, gods, Santa Claus, the Easter Bunny, none of that sort of stuff.
This shouldn't be difficult for you to understand. You probably don't believe in most of the supernatural stuff I mentioned, and as for gods, you don't believe in any of the over 10,000 gods that have been suggested in different places by different cultures over the years, except for one of those gods. So in effect you are an "atheist" about all gods except one of them.
I'm an atheist about that one too. So really, we aren't that far apart. We agree that 9,999 of the alleged gods don't exist, we only disagree as to one of them. Just one out of 10,000.
I wasn't even writing to you..... is that hard for you to understand?

Just because you are brainwashed doesn't mean the rest of us are.
You just don't get it ~ it is events in our lives that enhance our beliefs..... I guess you just don't have the events at all! I can only feel sorry for you as you are missing out on much :(
