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.

Preach! Dave, what, oh what do we do? What do we, your loyal Magnetitos, do in the face of this gay menace of flapping testicles and blindingly pale perineums?

<quoted text>Dave, the first sign of godhood is the rejection of godhood. A truly humble man you are, dave. I would be proud to call you my god. Your followers shall wear wall outlets around their necks and they shall pray during lighting storms.
Thoust are experienced in the ways of godhood, and doth knoweth of these things?

If you have any complaints to make about how things are run, please look elsewhere.

I want no followers. I would trip over them, fall, and break my geriatric hip. I am just a simple technician.

And feeling a great need to go sheepy bye.

Good night.

In that case: believe away. I don't have all the answers and I think people that claim they do are kind of silly.
In my experience most of those people are theists.
I don't know enough about Sikhism to make any comments on your creation story really, but like I said people can believe pretty much whatever they want if they don't ignore basic facts or try to shove it down my throat.
<quoted text>
Quite right. And I'll support that as long as faith stays out of my government and judicial system. I think if you're going to interfere with those you should have some evidence that what you're saying has merit.
<quoted text>
They don't know you and they don't now me. If it makes them feel better to call me names or imply I'm a bad teacher they should go right ahead.
Besides, I am part of the firing squad occasionally so it's only fair the other side gets some shots in.
<quoted text>
"Alice laughed: "There's no use trying," she said; "one can't believe impossible things."
"I daresay you haven't had much practice," said the Queen. "When I was younger, I always did it for half an hour a day. Why, sometimes I've believed as many as six impossible things before breakfast."
Alice in Wonderland.
LOL!

This is what sikhi says about creation, we can have a guess but honestly we don't know, at the moment only God knows!

"What was that time, and what was that moment? What was that day, and what was that date?
What was that season, and what was that month, when the Universe was created?
The Pandits, the religious scholars, cannot find that time, even if it is written in the Puraanas.
That time is not known to the Qazis, who study the Koran.
The day and the date are not known to the Yogis, nor is the month or the season.
The Creator who created this creation-only He Himself knows."

The limits of the created universe cannot be perceived. Its limits here and beyond cannot be perceived. Many struggle to know His limits, but His limits cannot be found. No one can know these limits. The more you say about them, the more there still remains to be said." (SGGS p5)
"So many worlds beyond this world-so very many! What power holds them, and supports their weight?" (SGGS p3)
"All are in the One, and the One is in all. This is what the True Guru has shown me.(5). He who created the worlds, solar systems and galaxies - that God cannot be known.(6). From the lamp of God, the lamp within is lit; the Divine Light illuminates the three worlds.(7)." (SGGS p907)

"For so many ages, there was only pitch darkness; the Creator Lord was absorbed in the primal void." (SGGS p1023)
"For endless eons, there was only utter darkness. There was no earth or sky; there was only the infinite Command of His Hukam. There was no day or night, no moon or sun; God sat in primal, profound Samaadhi.(1) There were no sources of creation or powers of speech, no air or water. There was no creation or destruction, no coming or going. There were no continents, nether regions, seven seas, rivers or flowing water.(2)" (SGGS p1035)
"From this primal void, came the moon, the sun and the earth....From this primal void, the earth and the Akaashic Ethers were created....From this primal void, came the four sources of creation, and the power of speech....They were created from the void, and they will merge into the void....." (SGGS p1037)

i hope that helps u understand sikhi belief!

Obama Health Care:

USA Labor Law, The Constitution, and demands of Natural Law: what Mother Nature, God, or Whatever Power decreed to be the reality of the real world, democracy, capitalism, the US Constitution, and free, fair, and affordable commerce and common sense demands.

Demands every Stockholder, corporation, farmer, business, outsourcer sweatshop, and nonprofit, tax-exempt, organization and Church; markets the cost in the wholesale and retail price of his or her product and service; of every worker, consumer, and taxpayer's wages (union contract), healthcare, pension, investment and independent business profit.

This enables every worker, consumer, and taxpayer to pay healthcare insurance premium or pay healthcare provider. Pay ALL taxes and pay for every product and service they use for life. With money derived from wages, investment profit, and independent business profit.

And enables every parent to educate, love, nurse, nurture, discipline, protect, and provide; for every child (job) they conceive. And fund schools, infrastructure, local and national security, government services, and etc.; with money derived from wages, investment profit, and independent business profit.
