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.

Magic is for the abiogenetic crowd.
Biology is the study of how things are assembled, not the ultimate causation for the assembly process. That would fall under what is now called physics, which so far states we all emanated from a seed that sprouted. Something those that have their heads buried in the Scriptures of Scientism fail to see, as they don't know how to look up on their own and see things the way they were designed to see.
BTW, most of those that wrote those Scriptures of Science were deist or theist.
Gee, you just can't believe nobody, can you?

Swords are for , damn I forgot .



If you fail to believe , you will , and
religion has nothing to do with it.

Anyways, let me get this straight. A powerful magnet can overcome the power of gravity on the small scale... not surprising at all actually... I have iron in my blood..... therefore.... jesus?
I've been through this a couple of times before. Please pay attention.

Iron gets magnetized. It concentrates magnetic fields. It is in your blood. It is affected by magnetic fields, and it also induces electricity on the cellular level. The smaller fields follow the larger fields, but there is time delays between what happens in different sections. It contributes to animation. The core of the earth is iron. Collecting cosmic magnetic emissions on a larger scale, which are then also passed onto the smaller fields walking around on the surface. Those cosmic fields have a shaping affect on those walking bodies, including their "thoughts". They were shaped and formed within those emissions for a long time.

Everything alive has an EM signature. Derived from chemical processes and cosmic influences. Cosmic not just from what radiates from the sky directly on you, but also what is collected and retransmitted via the earth core, possibly even amplified. This is flows, not "super magnets".

At the least, carbon organisms are collections of tuned EM circuits.

DNA amplifies coding in very small thingies into much larger creatures. Almost, if not every bit, done by EM processes. Those DNA are also tuned circuits.

Gravitationally, the center of mass for you, me, and every object in this solar system is almost dead center of the sun. That is where the balance point between us and the sun is. You shift an ounce here, and you shift an ounce there.

You are flying on remote control.

Funding Schools with Borrowed Money:
The majority of us the Government of this Representative Republic that vote; reelected Obnoxious President, Governor, Representatives of US the Government, School Administrators and Board Members.
That defies 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.
Demanding 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; Fund schools; 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.
President, Governor, Representatives of US the Government, School Administrators and Board Members hold Union workers, consumers, taxpayers, and America’s grandchildren’s children, Government employees, Parents, Teachers, Veterans, Police, Firemen, and Fathers disqualified for affirmative action with white skin, Representatives deny Collective Bargaining Rights accountable.
To fund schools, Illegal drug users and Immigrants, lottery, casino, and keno losers, unemployed Union workers replaced with nonunion workers, Human Traffickers, waitresses that pander for life for $2.00 per hour, slaves in enterprise zones, low-income child labor, consumers, and taxpayers, volunteers without wages, and nonunion workers willing to work for fewer wages than they can afford life. That pays with welfare checks, food stamps, housing vouchers, and Medicaid.
Pay property tax on state appraised value of their American Dream to fund schools. Pay interest on lottery winners winnings Legislators invest in school bonds.
Pay sales tax on the more stock dividends (money) OPEC Nations, Enron Stockholders, Wal-Mart Stockholders, Hillarys, Chinese, Foreign and Domestic Investors and Stockholders (money marketers) market quarterly. In the wholesale and retail price of every product and service Human Beings use for life. And School Boards and Government needs to build, maintain and operate schools, infrastructure, and provide local and national security, and Government services. That gets only product or service.
Needed to measure and maintain the strength and growth of this UNAFFORDABLE economy and distribute money Human Beings cannot digest, burn in internal combustion engines, or burn to heat and cool their American Dream. Into OPEC Nations, Enron Stockholders, Wal-Mart Stockholders, Hillarys, Chinese, Foreign and Domestic Investors and Stockholders portfolios.
This makes funding schools IMPOSSIBLE; Makes balancing every budget IMPOSSIBLE; Makes Union workers, consumers, taxpayers, and Americas grandchildren's children life UNAFFORDABLE; and created Ohio’s $1.35 trillion budget deficit, the $40 trillion social security and the $16 trillion national debt. America’s grandchildren’s children are responsible to pay Chinese, Foreign and Domestic Investors and Stockholders interest with this debt until they are 18 years old.
America’s grandchildren’s children cannot afford life and pay this debt with the $7.25 per hour Government mandated labor wage in a hundred million years.
and thats one of the reasons why I live in Canada..LOL

Even when you aren't attacking science, you still make the fallacious equivocation of machine to biology. There is no comparison, the two are vastly different. You should stop before you make more a fool of yourself on this matter.

"East is the direction toward which the Earth rotates about its axis, and therefore the general direction from which the Sun appears to rise."

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/East

The earth and sun rotate the same direction. Earth arises in the east of the sun.

You are the fool for equivalating collections of atomic particles called biological molecules as something different than collections of metal molecules making a lever.

I thought you believed in abiogenetic evolution?

The body is classified as a machine. Look it up. You think those parts work by magic? Appears so.

I believe that all modern living things evolved from a common ancestral population of living things, using natural processes that we can still observe operating around us today.

So are you asking about evolution? Abiogenesis (the origin of life)? The origin of planet Earth? The origin of the Solar System? The origin of the Universe?

Which?

What is delusional (and often dangerous) is believing that a supernatural, invisible skydaddy magically "poofed" everything into existence in a period of 6 days and then required sacrificing himself to himself in order to prevent himself from committing further genocide against his creations.

So if it didn't happen on its own, how did it happen?

If you say that a "god" did it, then how did a "god" come into existence on its own?
