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.

So you're saying that elderly individuals should be above criticism here on Topix?

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.

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??

Would it be ok to attack Zeus or Thor?

As for your question, go ask a Roman citizen or a wiccan?

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

The automobile industry has evolved. We have evidence that it evolved over time in museums and personal collections all over the country. But each and every vehicle from the beginning to what we have now has been designed, blue printed, engineered and manufactured.
I have not dedicated my life to running around looking for evolutionary evidence. If I’m wrong about evolution and I acknowledge that is a possibility. I believe that every creature that has allegedly evolved has been designed and engineered.
Every engineer that designs something builds prototypes, experiments, refines, evaluates, adjust, makes changes, then has his design mass produced. Once it’s mass produced more refining, evaluations, adjustment, tinkering, and remodeling occurs.
God is no different than any other engineer. Perhaps has built prototypes. He’s had lots of time to make adjustments and tinker with his design. Anyway you look at creation with evolution or without it. I believe God created the heavens and the earth, and all living things.
Yes ~ good analogy :)

<quoted text>HAHAHAHHA....that was good. In fact, in many sects of Wicca, Zeus and Thor are two of their gods.
it was good coz it's true, don't take the Mickey out of my belief, pls!

apparently, the hindu 'god' Indra is meant to be like Zeus, but i don't know too much about zeus to comment.

nah, all my atheist friends are still atheists, but my best freind said she's becoming a buddhist! somehow i don't think it's going to happen!!

<quoted text>You are so right and it is like these atheists and there so-called Christian friends think it okay to attack God, Christ and the Bible.
I call some fake Christians, because they treat God and Christ as not real. If their parent, spouse of child were attacked, then they would be angry. But, I say to them, how is it that they as Christians can regard God and Christ as less.
True ~ I know many who take their lies with them to Church, and they go every week, doing the right thing - and they take their lies home again, live them all week and go back to Church the next Sunday, thinking they can fool GOD!! LOL, there is no fooling GOD, HE is indeed within :)

don't call my belief irrational, Thor makes perfect sense to me! look at him from my perspective, then u will become gay!!hehehehehehehehee

if i believe something created us, why is that an irrational belief?

If a person who has an irrational belief, is respectful to u and your belief/disbelief, why can't u tolerate thier belief??

This wasn't fair, young lady.

Some respect must be earned. I don't respect every belief out there. I respect the right for people to have beliefs, but not necessarily the beliefs themselves.

Do you respect the belief that beating children is the only way to discipline them? I don't.
