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 know, but she'll have to kill me to do that. I'm not living in a world that doesn't allow me to believe in my religion!!! The saints are the only people that are good on this planet, i'm never going to stop loving them, i'd rather die then live without love!!!!!!

If i can accept people not believing in God, why can't she accept people that believe in him? atheists are murders and rapists too, i don't say, OMG the atheist is a rapist coz he doesn't believe in God. Noooooooooooooo, he's a rapist coz he doesn't understand love!!!! Just coz people say they love God from their mouths, that doesn't mean they love him from their hearts!

Eagle, how can you say that you love them, when you think they (including me) are going to hell and not worthy of God's love???? Or have i understood you wrong, like i did with kitten???
Sweets, I do love everyone on this site. How could I say I hate them when I really don’t.

I do my best to not tell people they’re going to hell. It’s not for me to judge people where they are going.

2 Peter 3:9
King James Version (KJV)

9 The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance.

You are already in hell. To purposely live in such ignorant darkness and fight to remain there is a sure definition of hell.

Btw you know the concept of hell and even the name hell was stolen from the Greek gods right?

The NT writers couldn't even come up with a new name!

Sheesh!

Eagle...there were atheists before the theory of evolution existed. It's not a requirement for disbelieving in silly imagined deities.
I could explain to you each and every fossil hominin, what evidence was used to place it, why and how professionals do that.
But each time I take the time to explain it to you, it falls on deaf ears. You are willfully ignorant. As Timn writes, anything that contradicts your beliefs is white noise, no matter how rational, logical, evidence based.
Which means you really don't think like we do. It's like you're living in a different universe where the rules of logic don't apply. You're an example of what Sam Harris means when he says (something like) "you cannot reason with someone who doesn't respect logic or who cannot think rationally. They're not interested and they don't care."
I thank you for your deepest sincere thoughts. I dedicate the following scripture to you my love.

Romans 8:38-39
King James Version (KJV)

38. For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come,

39. Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.

Caution, your answer may be used against you,
http://www.tandfonline.com/doi/abs/10.1080/13...

I haven't got a clue why they would think so. Why did Christianity develop along the lines of worshiping one human sacrifice and a virgin birth? No idea. Culture is like that. People pick up on some idea and it becomes relevant to them.

The thing about low tech cultures is that they aren't stupid, Dave. The worm thing isn't any kind of science going on - these are just people who are constantly infected with parasitic worms. There's no getting away from infection, unless you have good sewers and pavement. So they have myths and magic that deal with worms. But people in low-tech cultures make deductive observations, too. They've come up with all kinds of medicines for ailments. The Luo actually have de-worming medication they make from herbs to control the worm population in their bodies. Unlike our medicine, though, theirs won't clear the body of parasites. They act to decrease the parasites rather than destroy them all.

Open public streets to the playing out and glorification of fantasies. You be the judge. Take your children to watch.

Such deductions, over a long period of time are also behind some spiritual beliefs and morality, including gay sex.

Told you it would be used against you.

The idea behind the Christian virgin birth and sacrifice was God realized it was to big for us to see. Therefore it melded with us, imparting part of itself directly within human form that then had to deal with the physical world. God went slumming. This gave a face to the message it had been trying to pass on, but was too big and vague for mankind to see. God set man loose way back, and this was the way he tried to call some back home. Reuniting with the creative spirit.
