Atheism requires as much faith as religion?

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. Full Story

Thatís one whale of a tale.
Iím sorry Doctor, I simply can not believe in tall tales of whales. Like I said, I just donít have the faith that you do to believe in such grand imaginations on the scale of a childrenís fantasy.
Theyíre mammals no doubt but many land creatures arenít mammals. So both land and sea contain mammals and non mammals. What it comes down to Doctor you have a greater faith.
On a more personal note Doctor, were you parents believers of Christ. Please take a minute and tell me about your Mom and Dad.
"Grand imaginations" are one thing, observable evidence is quite something else. One on side we have piles of evidence, you can touch it, see it, study it, examine it from every angle, that would be the information of the evolution of Whales. On the other side we have....well, not much. We have the words that are contained in a holy book, a book who's authors we are not sure of. A book that is obviously completely ignorant on matter of science, and i this case evolutionary science. Yet you make the most unusual choice of ignoring factual information and settling with a book of unsupported ideas, Without meaning to be rude, I do believe this is called WILLFULLY IGNORANT. It takes a "Grand Imagination" to accept that mankind appeared after a mythical being scooped up some dirt and blew on it. Then yanked out one of his ribs and a fully formed women magically appeared.

In time of need I have seen atheist say "Oh, God, please don't let this happen."
It's their ignorant version of prayer.
I have said similar myself,ďOh god, Oh god, Ohhhh goddddd

That does not mean I was praying, it just means I was deifying the man giving me the pleasure I needed.

Had I not been brought up with the word god, perhaps Allah or salt biscuit I would have used another word.

Bacteria reproduce every 20 minutes. There are billions times billions times billions times billions of the little guys around. Do you think that's what keeps God busy? He's always like "oh, no! I need another one over there! And over there! And there! And ther! Ther! The..! T..!" pretty soon, no more time on His hands. Only bacteria.

Finally, on Sunday, He climbs into bed, aching arms and knees, and says "Gosh darnit. I should have listened to Thor when He said evolution was the way to go..."
I read an article a couple of years ago that said one of the reasons we have mineral deficiencies now, and sometimes need mineral supplements, is that in pre industrial days, is that we don't eat enough dirt.

Back then, people ate vegetable pulled from the ground, maybe brushed them off or have them a quick rinse, and ate them.

In adddition people ate plenty of fruits pulled from da trees dat were 'tainted' with birdSchidt of sorts.

My good Doctor, you have more faith than I do. I just can't believe a wolf like animal was running in the ocean and then turned into a whale. Iím not going to belittle you my good man. You have just got all caught up in the evolutionary net of nonsense.

You inspired me to go and review the so called evidence. Just as I thought, someoneís wild and fantastic imagination. They take a fossil and magically associates it with whales. Itís a Carney high pitch sales job done on the public.

To believe in evolution one must believe in magic. Because that is what it would take for a four legged creature to morph into a whale. I donít mean to be disrespectful to you my good Doctor, but you believe in fairy tales.
