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.

What is you problem with religious people? What have I done or said to you, that you keep calling me delusional? huh? some atheists are fanatics too, it seems!
ok, kitten and u guys goodnite! it's too late now, i have to get some sleep! sweet dreams guys!!:)
It's concern for the human species and general safety of humanity. When a person who maintains a delusional state congregates with others who support that delusion it eventually turns into violence or progresses into something worse, and then we see the Salem witch hunts all over again. Crowds of delusional people will hide and mask even more dangerous behaviors and exceptionally unstable individuals, preventing us from finding them before it's too late. Do you prefer we wait until murderers kill, then have to put them to death because they are beyond help?

Delusion also opens the door for many other abusive behaviors, such as drug and alcohol abuse. Of course I haven't even gotten to the fact that religion teaches people to be weak, useless, and incapable as a method of it's indoctrination.

Perhaps instead of looking to mythology for false strength and support, you should find where your own personality is lacking, and correct that. Of course what you do with your life is not really the important factor. In the US many people are denied the ability to help themselves because of religious notions, ideas, that are intended to keep them weak. That's the big issue I have with it, and I will not rest until I see those injustices ended, or religion gone from the planet.

OMG! Your're a atheist nut! Why can't you nuts live in peace?

Being very close to atheists, I always thought that they were very nice human-beings, but meeting you i found out that not all of them are. Honestly, you are the first atheist nut i have ever met!

I don't drink, smoke or take drugs!! But what are you on???

so are you going to have me killed? you going to be an atheist Hitler and start killing religious people?

You shouldn't have responded to that post if you didn't understand it.

Also, you're looking a lot like Eagle in this one.

Land mammals predominantly move their tales from side to side. A deer is the same, with side to side movement but when alarmed it will raise itís tale up as a warning.
An exception might be the beaver which uses itís tale for swimming. A skunk will raise itís tale vertically in order to spray. There is no indication that whales evolved from neither skunks or beavers.
Whales and dolphins as you have previously pointed out have this very powerful specially designed tale that propels them forward with a up and down movement.
My question to you Doctor, where are the transitional fossils that show this spectacular change from a tale that moves from side to side to a whales that moves up and down?
One jawbone or one bone doesnít constitute a slew of transitional fossils. There should be hundreds of fossils that show each phase of the transition. But thereís not but a few sparse examples. Very sparse examples are known Doctor.
If you are going to win me over with evidence, it slim pickings out there Doctor.
Tail.

It's "tail".

Unless you mean that they tell stories.

Can you give us a timeline?
It would be easier for you to do that since your fear keeps you on here more than me.

She never said she wanted to wipe YOU off the planet.

She was talking about the system of religion, not the people who follow religion.
