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.

"Bastard" gets used a lot to convey pity. It's not always a mean thing to say.
For example, if someone lost all his money at the poker tables, you might say, "Oh, you poor greedy bastard. Lost all your money again?"
Oh! thanks!

There's no evidence to show that the entire Universe *wasn't* created Last Thursday (with all of us created with fake memories), but I would hope that you would consider such a belief to be irrational.

That's why beliefs need to have a rational justification. The burden of proof is on the person who has the belief, not on the person who points out that the belief isn't supported by any objective evidence.

The difference being, of course, that Christians are supposed to love their neighbor. Atheists are under no such obligation, and therefore, unlike Christians, aren't acting like hypocrites when they don't.
Guess you missed that.

Everyone. Unless you've invented your own Bible.

So you're claiming to be an angel now?

Yeah, that what I thought, ya got NOTHIN!! I think your demon God is upset with you front having the strength of your own convictions. I can't tell you how many times I've posed this question, and to how many Christians, and non, have had an answer. It's almost as thought you realize the evil done and can't come to grips with it so yo ignore it. What cowardly Christians you all are, too funny. LMAOAROTF

Ok now, you can go back to your childish conversation about Batman!

Xyzhoturutsmail wrote:
NO, the burden of proof is on the one who sets the standard.
No. Otherwise, you're engaged in an "Appeal to Popular Belief" logical fallacy.

The burden of proof is on the one who is making the existential claim. In this case, the claim is that a god exists. So the burden of proof necessarily falls upon the theist, not upon the atheist.
Xyzhoturutsmail wrote:
So, if you suggest that the entire universe does not have evidence of being created last Thursday, and you have a fake memory then two things follow. One, you do not know if your fake memory was just created a second ago and the universe was created today and two, you have no idea or evidence to support the universe evolving 11 billion years ago.
Again, if there is no evidence to support a Last Thursday creation, then it is irrational to have a belief that the Universe was created Last Thursday.

Meanwhile, there *is* evidence that the Universe dates back to nearly 14 billion years ago (I have no idea where you got the 11 billion year value from).

And there is still no evidence that a supernatural skydaddy magically "poofed" everything into existence in a 6-day period.
Xyzhoturutsmail wrote:
There is no rational justification for a belief that the universe just expanded from nothing into the universe 11 billion years.
The Big Bang theory doesn't claim that the Universe expanded from "nothing", so you're engaged in a straw man argument.

With singularities, gravitational variations in time, quantum mechanics, the theory of relativity at risk, a Jurassic rat being alleged as humans oldest mammal ancestor 190 million years ago and Sebida being discovered as alleged to be 2 million years old, you are dealing with your beliefs and not facts.
None of that is evidence for a "god". I'll assume you meant Australopithecus sediba (not "Sebida"). In any event, we don't know yet whether A. sediba is an ancestor to modern humans or another branch, but neither option seems to make a point for you. So what is your point?

You might want to try reading the Bible, instead of listening to this person who calls herself "everyone".
I didn't say that I was listening to anyone called "everyone". I said that, according to most versions of the Bible, Christians are supposed to *love* everyone, and yet the Christians on this thread are hardly acting in a "loving" manner by their choice of language.

clearly it was the atheists who did not believe, in the Bible, who were flushed in the flood
You mean that worldwide flood for which there is a complete lack of scientific evidence?
Xyzhoturutsmail wrote:
The word of God and scripture was written long before anyone had a chance to be a Christian.
Weird that a god wouldn't give all of his "children" the same option to be Christian. I guess he doesn't believe in fairness, eh?
Xyzhoturutsmail wrote:
angels do not have freewill, so I would be worse all being here and acting on a freewill which God did not give me. The 1/3 angels tried that
If angels don't have free will, then you must be claiming that your god *forced* them to rebel and then punished them for what he forced them to do. Gee, he's just a wealth of fairness, ain't he?

<quoted text>:) Sad. Actually, you do care about what the Bible says. It was you who tried to make a poor and lame analysis using shellfish. That is because you wished to make a point using shellfish.
If you wish to talk about mouth things like eating pork, eating lots of sugar, eating shellfish, eating rats, eating dogs, or even inhaling nicotine, the be sure to talk about mouth things when you talk about mouth things.
Sorry, if you are upset because you whining childish game did not work, also please don't announce that you are done, just be done.
Now, if you wish to talk about sexual sins, that is covered in Leviticus 18, and those are homosexuality, pedophilia, incest, bestiality and necrophilia. You have no idea what my position is on eating shellfish, so why are you lying. You already said that it did not matter, so what is your problem?
The way you post is like, you trying to discuss science in a math class. Don't do that.
No, I hope that one day you realize that your lack of faith is too weak to manipulate. Until then, you doing not have the moral material to define faith.
Sorry, fella, you wanted a bash session and to pretend that all the world hates gays and that is not true.
Gays have the right to choose to oppose same sex marriage, get therapy and to choose Christianity over homosexuality.
As for you, it is your right to choose whatever path you choose, and not to be surprised at the end result.
It is just not going to work, when you try to inject shellfish, get upset, then pretend that there was hatred towards you. The days of gay pity parties are over, and the days where you tell the world that the streets of America are not safe for gays are over too.
Try another tactic, this one of yours is not working.
God is here to bless all and all shall profess Him as Lord. That is fact.
<smile>....<God made away for you>
I didn't pretend there was hatred toward me. I'm not gay. Enjoy your life of hatred, troll.
