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.

Not to mention these mammals are extremely intelligent with their own language.
Sharks are preprogrammed biological robots. At sea world you don’t see sharks doing tricks. They’re just not trainable. Dolphins and whales are the opposite. They’re capable of doing a lot of things including communicating with humans.
How many sharks have you seen play basketball? I’ve see dolphins play it at sea world. I’ve never seen a shark do that.
You're both mistaken. Whales are very well adapted, but have "evolutionary baggage" because of where they came from. That's what Blacklagoon is talking about. It's not poor adaptation, though, it's a phylogenetic history that, as time goes on, will continue to be selected against (although it's more accurate to say that mutations that damage the genes that produce these ancestral traits, like the hind limb buds, will not be selected against - I'm probably writing above your level here, Eagle, sorry).

Sharks are not machines. They are organic, intelligent creatures, too. They have been observed engaged in sophisticated pack hunting. A group of sharks will surround a school of fish in the same manner that dolphins do. They keep them schooling, trapped, in the middle. Then, one by one, the sharks will swim in to eat their fill and then return to the line.

Whales and sharks do not normally compete for the same food. So they're not in direct competition all that often. Each has created a niche, a way of exploiting the environment for energy and each does this so well that they remain extant, surviving and reproducing. It's true that sharks attack whales for their babies and weak, but it's also true that whales attack sharks and that whales have complex solutions to ward off the predation of sharks.

I haven't seen the newest Batman yet. I think the Batman movies are better than the Spiderman movies.
That's what I thought before I saw the 'amazing spider man' movie. I think it's ALOT better then the older ones, I really didn't like Tobey maguire!!!!!!!!!

I wouldn't pay any attention to the Troll of Many Names. Hit him with a rolled up newspaper if he humps your leg.

The new ones are collectively called the Dark Knight Saga.

Most of the older ones were not very good, especially Batman Forever and Batman & Robin. They were yuck.

<quoted text>No, the problem with the old ones had to do with the fact that they were made into dark movies.
Dark and light has to do with lighting.
i didn't like them coz they weren't serious, dangerous and they weren't mature, if u get what i'm saying? it's like, if i want to watch something like that, i could watch a hindi film!

i didn't pay attention to the lighting, i will now tho.

You also have to remember that Eagle was trying to claim that the first 46 chromosome hominin was "Adam."

<quoted text>See, this is the point, you are comparing Batman and Spiderman movies, and Toby Maguire to Arnold, Jack Nicholson, Sharon Stone, Jim Carey, and that means that the stars were carrying the Batman movies.
that's not true, i never heard of Andrew garfield, but i loved watching him on the screen. he's not even really my type but i really loved watching him! i don't really like any of those actors!!

also, it was nice to see irfan khan in it, but his acting wasn't that great, maybe being in american film scared him!

Yes. That poster is the Troll of Many Names.

Uma Thurman was pretty hot as Poison Ivy. But that's just Uma Thurman. The character was silly. I liked her a lot in the Kill Bill movies. She was also in one of the best movies ever, Pulp Fiction.

“We the undersigned, Christian clergy from many different traditions, believe that the timeless truths of the Bible and the discoveries of modern science may comfortably coexist. We believe that the theory of evolution is a foundational scientific truth, one that has stood up to rigorous scrutiny
and upon which much of human knowledge and achievement rests. To reject this truth or to treat it as ’one theory among others’ is to deliberately embrace scientific ignorance and transmit such ignorance to our children. We believe that among God’s good gifts are human minds capable of critical
thought and that the failure to fully employ this gift is a rejection of the will of our Creator.... We urge school board members to preserve the integrity of the science curriculum by affirming the teaching of the theory of evolution as a core component of human knowledge. We ask that science
remain science and that religion remain religion, two very different, but complementary, forms of truth.”

Nightserf, read this post from Givemeliberty,#138316
Does this kind of conduct deserve respect?
For me, it's not about respect, but kindness--and focus. But you go farther, saying that you love everyone here. As a Christian, you might consider the words of Paul:

Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.

If that does not describe your behavior, can it be described as love?

<quoted text>No, we are saying the same thing. Toby Maguire and Andrew Garfield were virtual unknowns. Andrew Garfield first really came out in the Social Network. At first I thought he was a bad fit for Spiderman, but when I watched the movie I forgot about his role in the Social Network.
The other actors were older and before your time, they had name recognition. The problem when you fill a screen with big names often is that you pay for the name and not the quality of the script and directing.
yh we saying the same thing, i get it now!

i don't know what social network is?

Andrew Garfield was amazing in my eyes, nobody could have done the role better!

I know the other actors, but i only want to see arnold in terminator not in bloody batman doing a stupid role! and jim carrey in ace ventura pet detective. jack nicholson was ok in batman but he done better roles and sharon i'm not a fan of!

Yeah, the Robin character was a bad idea and they soon let it go. The problem with the older Batman movies was that they made the arch enemies of Batman the stars and they treated Batman as a side kick to them.
lol, also robin made batman look more gay then he already did in that gay bat costume!!

I'm sure Hiding is very beautiful! she has beauty and brains, so she scoring more points than me!! i don't think i could ever be like that!! what's your problem with Hiding, if u don't mind me asking?

I never said i follow the bible, i don't believe in it!! I'm a sikh and my sikh faith has taught me to respect good people and i was always taught in christian school that jesus was a good person. I can't change the image i have of jesus in my head, that image helped me soo much, i don't know what the bible says jesus was really like and i don't care either!!
I've never sat down and read the bible like i did the koran or GGS/vedic books, i have read verses here and there, that's all. Everything i known about christianity is from christian school. And then when i went to uni, i made atheist friends/'boyfriends', who would keep telling me to stay away from christianity and christians coz they nuts, but i was like noooooooo they're nice people, but then christians started telling me i'm going to hell coz i'm sikh and no matter how nice i was if i didn't convert i would burn in hell.
Just out of curiosity, have you peeked in the Sikh forum?

yh, i don't think she's pretty either, like i said beauty is in the eyes of the beholder!!! in my eyes, catherine zeta jones in zorro was beautiful, she didn't look as good in other films tho. also i think jessica alba is stunning!!

not all indian actresses are pretty either!!! u watch bollywood films then? who's your favourite actress?
