Atheism requires as much faith as religion?

Full story: Webbunny tumblelog

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.

Speaking of NASA; NASA has stumbled across some computer generated evidence that the Bible is true. A man named Harold Hill, a NASA consultant and president of the Curtis engine company, describes how NASA computers were looking back in time when they issued an alert that something was wrong. There seemed to be a day missing from the calculations. The scientists puzzled over this a long time until someone in their midst reflected that in the Bible, there's a story about the day the sun stood still for the Hebrew leader Joshua. This solves the puzzle, almost.
According to the computer, not an entire day was lost, but 23 hours and 20 minutes. Now there's a new problem. What about the other 40 minutes? That's when the same employee remembers that there is another story in the Bible about a day when the sun moved backwards 10 degrees which, according to the employee, is an arc of 40 minutes...so the entire question of the missing day is solved!
This is true! I swear to god!

<quoted text>Well, as a scientist, your performance is to some extent predicated on your ability to separate scientific fact from personal religious belief. It's ok if he wants to have personal beliefs - he can believe in voodoo for all I care - but if those beliefs start to compromise his ability to think objectively, that's a problem.
I can agree with you on that thought based on the word you used,“If.”

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?

.....and so you have answered BobLoblah's question by saying dat you do Not drink piss.

"Two major goals of laboratory evolution experiments are to integrate from genotype to phenotype to fitness, and to understand the genetic basis of adaptation in natural populations. Here we demonstrate that both goals are possible by re-examining the outcome of a previous laboratory evolution experiment in which the bacteriophage G4 was adapted to high temperatures. We quantified the evolutionary changes in the thermal reaction norms—the curves that describe the effect of temperature on the growth rate of the phages—and decomposed the changes into modes of biological interest. Our analysis indicated that changes in optimal temperature accounted for almost half of the evolutionary changes in thermal reaction norm shape, and made the largest contribution toward adaptation at high temperatures. Genome sequencing allowed us to associate reaction norm shape changes with particular nucleotide mutations, and several of the identified mutations were found to be polymorphic in natural populations."

"We outline similarities between this well-studied system and several recent examples of adaptive evolution associated with heritable mutator phenotype in a similarly small proportion of survivors of selection in nature and in the lab."

"Laboratory selection for desiccation resistance, which has been imposed on five replicate populations of Drosophila melanogaster for >200 generations, has resulted in enhanced survivability during periods of extreme water stress. The ability of these populations to persistently resist the fatal effects of desiccation is correlated with evolved physiological traits, namely preferential storage of carbohydrates (associated with reduced lipid reserves) and a dramatic increase in blood volume, which has led to a significant increase in extracellular sodium and chloride content, as well as body mass. When compared to other populations of this drosophilid species, these adaptive traits are unique."

You rub piss on your joints for arthritis?!?

Might I suggest NSAIDs? Start with ibuprofen - you can easily take 2 tablets per 4 hours but, if you have a doctor monitoring you, you might be able to take more.

I don't think the piss will help you, Boblbalyahg. Those people who pour it on you are just stealing your money.

Or you could try acupuncture.

What Eagle is not telling you is that this person insisted on trying to convert those around him to his strange beliefs, much like Eagle insists on posting his delusions about evolution rather than addressing them.
All that person's coworkers said that his behavior was grossly inappropriate.
We don't know all the facts Hiding.

Here we have a established scientist that has advanced to the top.

Leading a team of other scientist.

He worked for NASA 15 years. This wasn’t a probationary employee.

Ok. So I just left my hotel room to venture out into the scary American City nightscape to get my beer. The first drama I see is a young lady, mumbling to herself, taking off her clothes outside a cafe. Yeah, she's young enough to be cute, but she's freaky scary and sounding like an old homeless lady (what do you call them again?). Then she tosses her pants at a wall and screams "I'll kill them!"

I avoid her, wondering if it's drugs or schizophrenia, and venture down the road to find two young women holding hands, both with short cropped hair. I think "hmmm...not Korean, so they're lesbians! HL would be so glad to see them!" and then, with that in mind, pass this coffee shop/small bar I could never quite figure out - it's always full of men who never glance in my direction at all. Ah! Finally, it dawns on me! Gay bar!

Then I find the beershop. One Guiness, two Sierra Nevada - yum!

Leaving there, I narrowly avoid a young Latino man who is apparently showing off his anger to a homeless, nearly toothless, black woman by dancing a little jig, bum faced toward her. She starts screaming hateful vengeance while he walks away, a skip to his step.

I walk around her, she starts shouting something like "I'll kill him!" smoking too, and we're right beside the original crazy girl who is now saying "I'll find the axe. The axe."

I try to find a "Hiding-safe" spot on the corner, but a guy on a skateboard blasts by - so he needed the corner down-ramp - and when I move back to the corner, trying to appear invisible, a powered wheel chair'd person drives up - I have to move again.

And some guy, smoking, turns and looks at me and says something. Walks a bit away. Turns back. Says "you can't hide."

I'm like "F*ck! Dave found me!"

Run back to my hotel room, drinking my beer, listening to a couple screaming bloody murder at each other - I don't think they're insane, just angry.

Ah, Guinness.

America, I love your country!

Oh, and the beer salesperson gave me a free bottle opener. That was neighborly of him :)
