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.

<quoted text>Don't say you Christians. A lot of posters here are simply deist and not Christians. In fact, Christians may disagree with other Christians. If you believe in a deity, then you are not an atheist and since you follow a religion, your statement is likely that of the topic heading "Atheism requires as much faith as religion".
yh i got it!

i know i'm not an atheist!!

Ahem. You're the theist coming to the atheist forum to troll so you get what you deserve.
Anyways what's the big deal? You are the one who not only believes in Yahweh/Jesus but you also worship him! And his book the holy bible says very clearly he loves the smell of burning flesh especially the burning flesh of little girls.
We clearly see this in the story of Jephtha where your god had two months to stop that little girl from being tied down and set on fire screaming. But he stayed silent and enjoyed the show.
After all he loves that burning flesh smell! No ambulance or attempt to heal/save/comfort Jephtha's daughter. Just a nice show and smell for the god you pray to.
Sweet dreams

We clearly see a lot more in the Bible than you do..... and this is a question about atheist's needing faith in a top stories forum about religion. Your faith is the belief of nothing and no after life; my Faith is totally different.

Just because I am a Christian does not mean you can try and write hurtful things without proving that you are cold hearted.

Sweet dreams also to you

I challenge you to find a single atheist who would approve of roasting a child.
I challenge you to find a single Christian who would appreciate it; and I also challenge you to find a single Christian who would write cruel postings to others that had written about their little sister being burned to death.....

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 :)

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?

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

<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?
