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.

In the past I lived in a couple of places with some neat zoos. Sunday morning would often find me and my family at the zoo, spending a good while just walking around and kind of communicating with the animals, or just being friendly observers. People tend to be sympathetic to the larger creatures confined, but then how else could you see and experience them.
Most in the viewing public would just regard them, while you always had those that try to get a reaction from them. Especially around the monkey cages. You can learn a lot about people by watching them around the animals.
The Creator of all things has provided Topix as a zoo to observe animals in the wild, so to speak. In this case a place for Topix atheists to come out of the shadows and screech. A place to manifest themselves to their fullest.
Fortunately, there are no dietary restrictions or social conventions to be followed in getting them to perform on here. Don't feel guilty giving them empty peanut shells. They would rather screech than eat.
Good point ~ we learn to know the person hiding behind the avatar..... they are as they are :)

I think you are correct. The problem with some of these people, though, is that they're all pooh. Wash, wash, wash awaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay~!
I definitely agree, although we are probably thinking of different people....

He claims to know what life will be like in heaven, without actually being there. Perhaps you missed that.

No, I did not. You must have misread your own post.
My own post asked him a question about heaven, since he claimed to be knowledgable about it. So how, exactly, would I be misreading my own post?

Hey don't generalize about generations.
In my family no parent ever struck a child.
I come from an educated, civilized family.
@Eagle...i don't think we should even spank kids, it's just not nice. We need to discipline them with love!!!

<quoted text>Maybe, you should meant some more atheists. Like on the 'Prove there is a god" thread or even meet these same atheists over there.
When I first came to 'Top Stories' they were nice to me too. I soon found out that they were targeting a few female and harassing them and even stalking them offline.
They make it clear that if I followed along or ignore their actions, they would be cool with me.
Well, I am not like that, I do not put up with bullies, so I let them know. They made the mistake of attacking me, and now they are simply pissed because I post their harassing posts.
Have you ever been to the Bay of Bengal? We went there for our Honeymoon. I white sands were awesome. In fact, it was sort of like a couple's treat, well if you van call two couples a retreat.
I was talking about atheists i know in 'real life'. Honestly, i've never had to argue with an atheist, we always seem to get on. they don't force their veiw on me and i don't on them, so we all happy!!!

i'll try but it's always weird not talking to people face to face. you wouldn't act the same if u were talking to someone's face!

i'm hoping to go to bengal, coz my grandad lives their. i think i would go to a cold country for my honeymoon, bengal isn't the first place that comes to mind. is your wife from there, so that's why u went?

Who are you playing games with? Your post was simply an attack on his post, which was not in paragraph form and you simply used previous information for that attack.
I'm not playing games with anyone. Are you saying that he cannot speak for himself?

In fact, even if he had been to heaven before, how he writes here on earth would be irrelevant.
Isn't his purpose to communicate? Assuming that it was, wouldn't his communication be improved by using paragraphs?(It would also be improved by using proper capitalization.) Doesn't that make how he writes relevant?

And this is relevant how, since I didn't mention the moon?

No, only the gays and atheists, or when the elderly person is one your side.
In which posting did I claim that members of any group here on Topix should be above criticism? Please identify that posting.

<quoted text>You are a clueless ninny.
So, you are saying that the same people who beat blacks, burned blacks, lynched blacks, imposed Apartheid upon them, exterminated Jews, blew the crap out of Japanese men, women and children, some how at least better not spank or hit their white little children.
So, in your puny little mind, their barbarism was left for people of other races.
I have good news for you, no matter how you pretend, deflect or ignore, those actions will guarantee you hell for eternity, no matter what you claim does or does not exist.
I just watched the film called afterlife, weird creepy film. anyway, watching that film i was thinking that digging up a grave is seen as immoral and evil, but digging up a very all one is called archaeology!! heheheheee! People in power make rules to suit them, what can we do??

SPANKING KIDS IS STILL WORNG THO!!!

Since neither one is an imaginary entity, I fail to see how they are relevant to the discussion about attacking imaginary entities.
