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.

Remember the old jingle, "Schaefer is the one beer to have when you're having more than one."? there's something to that. Weak American lagers may lack any character worth mentioning, but their alcohol content is also lower, so you can drink more of them without getting sloppy drunk. Me, I'd rather have one or maybe two really good beers (or glasses of win) than a six pack of Bud Light, but I have friends who prefer the latter. At the end of the evening, we both drive home safely.

What you are talking about is censorship. The government controlling religious beliefs so as to represent your own ideology. What happened to separation of Church and State?
When did he ever mention government intervention?

You build and knock down straw men like a disgruntled crow.

It's not censorship. Free speech has limits. We do not allow hate speech, for instance, and some things that your religion preaches constitute hate speech.

Stop having such a persecution complex. No one wants the government to control whether or not you can believe in skydaddy, I am simply of the opinion that hateful rhetoric and hateful beliefs should not be able to hide under the guise of "religious freedom." You are not free to hate and discriminate based on what some old book tells you.

Listen: you are never going to understand the universe around you without Dave. Not only does he provide a fully developed EM alternative to contemporary physics, not a single one of his 'theories' requires time and energy consuming, wasteful experimentation. Dave is the future of science and represents one of the greatest thinkers of our time. Of all time. F*ck you, Socrates. Einstein? Einstein who?

I think you have got your facts all screwed up. America does allow hate speech under freedom of speech.

{I am simply of the opinion that hateful rhetoric and hateful beliefs should not be able to hide under the guise of religious freedom.}

I see, so Atheist would be the only ones that can have hateful rhetoric and hateful beliefs hiding under the guise of freedom of speech.

I guess you think the ole Constitution needs to be thrown out with the ole book. That way the Militant Nazi Atheist can take over the country and dictate what one can believe.

And those of us who refuse to believe what the Nazi Atheist party dictates? I guess it’s the gas chambers for us?

In fact Christianity has saved millions through our hospitals, giving food to the hungry, clothing and shoes. Building schools and drilling fresh water wells in poor schools. Reaching out to the homeless. Drug and Alcohol rehab centers, and prison outreach.
Lives saved by Atheist Hospitals, and generous giving?
Zilch……
Those that died under Atheist leadership, ohhhh only about 180 million.
You love making assumptions and presumptions. Sadly, no matter how many facts that you see, you will still believe in your stupid made up nonsense.

No. Not so much actually. There's something about piss that just doesn't agree with me. I don't know, I might be strange here, and I know it's your drink of choice, but I just can't imagine piss is all that tasty.

Do you drink it for health reasons? Some people - incorrectly - think it helps you lose weight. Others think it has some kind of medicinal properties. There're a few cultures where the people take magic mushrooms, get high, and then drink their urine because the metabolites of magic mushrooms also make you high. Reindeer will actually drink the piss of humans who've ingested drunks like magic mushrooms for these reasons - aggressively.

So why do you drink it, Boblablahaha?

Seriously. He displays an effortless ability to understand the universe - but will be share his world changing paradigm shift with the world? No, of course not, for he is too humble for that. He fashions himself a modern day Socrates, playfully questioning our perceptions, daring us to dream, daring us to think, and daring us to install a massive industrial electromagnet in the garage. To dave, a true visionary.

There is no difference, micro/macro was made up by creationist snake oil salesmen. Things either evolve or they do not, and there is no demonstrable limit to how much things can change. So you are using a fallacy here, a lie fed to you by people more interested in draining your bank account by selling you false hope, false dreams, and fantasies. Nothing more.
You need to learn more about something before you can debunk it, you know so little about evolution that you cannot even comprehend the basics of it.
Oh the ole,

“I know everything and you know nothing.”

That one is a bit worn and it shows your narcissism too much. You best go back into the dressing room and come out with something more smashing darling. Not that ole worn out stuff that makes you look much older than you are.
