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.

yh, i read the koran when i was really young, i had f*cking nightmares!!! honest to God, i was scared!!
coz i went to christian primary school, we were always told good things about jesus. He was a good man who didn't harm anyone, so how can the Bible be bad then? Jesus even said to God, " Father forgive them, for they know not what they do." How can a man who is asking God to forgive his enemies be bad? I really don't get it.
you dont know your Jesus very well do ya?

Hell is REAL. And you're well on your way. Satan has BLINDED your mind that you might not REALIZE that your soul is LOST without the Lord Jesus Christ. And that's....for REAL.

It's not like that with sikhi/vedic religions, we told to think about things! The GGS asks questions like, "how were we created, why were we created, what's the point" and then it tries to answer those questions, but then even GGS says, nobody really knows the answers to those questions but maybe as God increases our intellect, we might one day understand things abit better.
Sikhism is against every kind of ritual done for God. To understand God, understand your own heart and then the heart of other's and you will see God!!! Without love (or as Tide calls it, empathy) rituals done for God have no meaning at all.
verses from GGS about rituals in all the religions;
The Vedas and the Scriptures (ketab: bible and koran) are only make-believe (the rituals only, not the bani tho, that's true), O Siblings of Destiny; they do not relieve the anxiety of the heart. If you will only center yourself on the Lord, even for just a breath, then you shall see the Lord face-to-face, present before you.|| 1 ||
O human being, search your own heart every day, and do not wander around in confusion. This world is just a magic-show; no one will be holding your hand.|| 1 || Pause ||
Reading and studying falsehood, people are happy; in their ignorance, they speak nonsense. The True Creator Lord is diffused into His creation; He is not in the image the dark-skinned Krishna of legends.|| 2 ||
As I stated “With a lot of religions” not all, but as with all religions it must be contained and monitored to keep it in check.
If one becomes a mindless follower of the flock it can transform into something totally different.

You must think for yourself at all times, and watch for the slow and subtle changes.

No one should become as a god even the god you look for and worship.

He makes several good points though. I'm assuming your not gonna watch it, so here are a few:
Why do human fetuses grow a coat of hair while in the womb only to shed it shortly before birth? Why would god make that happen?
Vestigal organs on whales - evidence of rear legs. Creationists apparently say that these bones are "penis struts," which is hilarious.
Why do we have (broken) genes that code for egg yolk?
Why do we have genes that code for vitamin c, even though our bodies don't actually make it?
1. vestigial
2. vestigial
3. pseudogenes denote ancestry
4. co-evolution with fruit plants

That is the point. With a lot of religions you should not think for yourself, but only do as you are told.
The red light at the intersection tells you what to do. Everybody tells you what to do. If you go to the grocerie store do you think you can do whatever your please without consequences? You can think whatever you want but it is always better if your thoughts conform with reality.
Yes there are numerous good religious people, but for most religions it is their way or the highway.
It society it is their way or prison in may cases. It's not like you can cruse down the interstate at 110 mph without other taking notice.
It is religious beliefs that cause a lot of problems and death in the world to day as it has been for centuries. It is only when one understands the need for religion and the obedience of the followers does one see the truth in religion. The old saying the blind leading the blind is the foundation of religion.
You say “god gave us a brain” but most religions people refuse to use it.
If your post is an example of someone who uses their brain than i am not seeing it. Your analysis is hostile and one sided and indicative of a mind the size of a mustard seed.

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.
A little course?

Ask these people why bacteria is so important;
Yeah, the Japanese "medical research" aka torture of patients was every bit as bad as the Nazis. I apologize. Those people should have been tried for crimes against humanity, along with the emperor. They weren't, and that was a failure of justice on the part of Western powers.

In terms of bacteria, you cannot live without them. Some of the genes that your immune system relies upon are only found in bacteria. Some of the genes that you rely upon for digestion are only found in your gut bacteria.

This is an example of "coevolution." We evolved with these bacteria. Since evolution is efficient, it will only allow for one set of genes in a system of gene pools (human + bacteria gene pools is our system), many of the genes were lost in the free living animal (us).
