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.

Oh hell, you don’t say, I use “The God Delusion”
by Richard Dawkins to steady my table.

But Dawkins book has another function. When we run out of toilet paper, I have to pull it out and rip off two or three pages and use it to wipe my a**. Its a little course but hey, that's atheism for you.

{worst examples of design by your almighty designer}.
Here I disagree with you again. I think whales and dolphins are magnificent breathtaking creatures. They are the elite of the ocean creatures.
They tell me our submariners can hear them singing for hundreds of miles in the ocean. I don’t know if they are singing the Blues or Country & Western. But they’re damn sure singing some type of heartache song.
I just hate the thought of countries hunting these magnificently designed intelligent creatures. They have such beauty Doctor. They couldn’t have been designed any better. I’m surprised Doctor at your statement and you being a seaman.
Sharks.

Sharks are often thought of as the felines of the sea, and rightfully so. Their diversity and capability in the water has made it possible for them to exist without much change over millions of years. They can kill almost anything, if they have the mind to, and even in a feeding frenzy manage to protect their own. They have been known to topple ships, and more myths about them are known to any sea culture. Even the fresh water sharks can take you out.

Let's not forget the giant squid.

Giant squids grow large enough to consume killer whales, those are the really big ones in case you don't know. Yet they maintain the agility of their smaller counterparts. Darting through the water like leaves in the wind.

Oh, but what about the piranha!

Love these buggers, capable of stripping a cow to the bone in minutes. They are ravenous fish, which swim faster than pretty much anything. They feed in packs, strategically stripping their prey by ripping it apart while they eat it, bite by bite. A single piranha is little to no threat, but a pack of them will devour anything.

You don't get out much, do you?

Good on you. Richard still gets your money. He gives loads more in charity than most believers. You couldn't understand his words anyway.

You did, you just worded in a manner that makes it "feel" better to you is all, so you can pretend you didn't. If something is fact then it does not need interpretation nor is it allegory, those are both contradictory to fact.

If you want truth, here it is, the bible is the most gory, violent, hate filled book of smut on the planet. Even the Koran, or however that's spelled, has less blood, guts, torture, killing, raping, and genocide in it. The god in the bible is a monster, who even Cthulhu would be hard pressed to match on a good day.

Look, I don't like hurting people, ok! I personally don't agree with some things written in the Bible, but I have met nice christians too, so for them i don't want to say nasty things to their religion. If that is what helps them become better people then that is fine with me. I said before that we are responsible for our own actions, we need to stop blaming religion for everything. God gave us a brain, we should use it!!!

I see it a whole lot differently, than you.
I applied for a job, when I was 16.{Details are not required for the story}
I had a dream that night about not getting the job.
A day or so later, every detail of my dream came true.
A few nights later, I had another dream about the job.
A day or so later, every detail of my dream came true.
Can you explain that? No.
Nearly 40 years has passed and I never experienced another dream that came true like those two did.
A scientist would study such an event and a believer would claim that god did it and they are sure that there is a reason behind it.
For awhile some time ago (in my notes LOL) I was writing about certain dreams, describing their main image as such, and when the 'event of my dream' occurred, I was giving the links to the sources and how the event fitted in with the cryptic image.

I stopped doing it after about 7 (listed somewhere) because I realised all I would be doing would be making people scared of something somewhere would happen.

We all have the ability to work out the standing out point in the dream; and keep it in focus. We can actually be aware of ourselves in our dreams; I studied dream control for awhile and it works. Simply a matter of concentration and focus. The focus I used when I was aware I was dreaming was a scar left on my hand from a drip many years ago ~ and when we are in control, dreams take on a whole different aspect. You can take it where ever you want :)

I believe the information is probably already stored in our DNA, we are only repeating that which is just somewhere a little bit ahead of ourselves, somewhere down the track.

When something triggers of the realisation that you are exactly where you knew you were going to be gives you an awe inspiring Spiritual feeling of the grandest kind :)
