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

.....What you have to say about Oil & Gas engineers and their operating methodologies and happenstances is said in 'generalities' and oftenTimes is taken out of context by people that no hardly anything about the business. To refer to the very small minority as 'smart asses' will be reflected on the industy's finest as a 'Whole'.
Ps:....The smart asses applies to less than 0.5 per cent. This tells me that you have NOT met toooooooo many.
Some 38,000 wells had been drilled with fault in the Gulf up until the Horizon problem, and that's a damn fine record.
By the vey, can you give BobLoblah an example of an 'accident investigation, that you participated in.
.....Just curious. Yellow.

First I appreciate safe oil well drilling operations. We need oil and gas. Bob, Iím from Houston Texas. I never worked on a oil platform but I did work in the Petro-Chemical industry for 32 years as a Production Shift Superintendent and in Production Engineering.

I have conducted thousands of accident investigations. Most of them were minor but a few were in the major category. One that comes to mind was the decomposition of a chemical in 8 x 55 gallon drums. I had argued with the engineer that this decomposition needed to be done in the lab first. Then a procedure written up on how to do it.

He fought me on this and the operator pumped 8 drums of this toxic chemical into a glass lined 3,000 gallon reactor. The reactor contained about a thousand gallons of 15% caustic before the charge of the 8 drums. It took a few minutes but the reaction started a dynamic exothermic reaction.

Alarms began going off on the computer control system. We had printers that would print every alarm. The printers started going crazy. The reactor pressured up and blew off the 200 pound man way cover. A geyser shot out of the reactor like old faithful.

It was a freaking mess and the wind carried this material to our main power grid coming into the facility. The main fuses on the power grid blew out and causing a complete shutdown of all systems. This little incident cost the company boo coos of money because all process units shutdown.

No one was hurt except the pride of one arrogant engineer.

<quoted text>You are literally impervious to any information that conflicts with your world view. You've been given many, many good pieces of information on evolution and you just cover your eyes and basically say that since you don't understand it, it can't possibly be true. Cmon man. It's getting annoying. Waxing poetic about the beauty of the dolphins doesn't prove that they were designed (not to mention you completely ignored the information that contradicts your design hypothesis).
Atheist have to believe in evolution. They donít have a choice. A Christian doesnít have to believe it. Some do and some like myself donít. Itís completely optional to us.

I had it in high school but it was brief and we moved on.
Those that dedicate to a specific science major in college get more evolution indoctrination. Especially those in archeology, biology, anthropology.

My Son will soon graduate with his second graduate degree and this one will be in science. He had the evolution courses recently. And they failed at the university level to sway him to believe in evolution.

Tim, millions of people believe in it because they were taught that. And millions donít believe it like myself. We have been talking about whales lately. Thereís very sparse fossil evidence. Some fossils but not enough to show a transition from a deer to a whale.

Evolutionist will take one fossil, a jawbone and hand full of other bones then jump for joy. Claiming this is the link. The undeniable evidence. Theyíre going to have to do a hell of a lot better than that.

Human fossil evidence is even more sparse. A bone here, a fragment there, another fragment. Pile on top of that a lot of hype and you have evolution.
