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. Full Story

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.
So, because magnetic fields exist, and because we have iron in our blood, we are under remote control? That's quite the leap. You're stating a couple facts - the core of the earth is iron, the earth has a magnetic field, we have iron in our blood, and then connecting them in a way for which you have no a shred of evidence. Claim dismissed.

Maybe this is where Dave gets his "science" from:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Daleks_%E2%80%93... .

The Daleks plan to remove the Earth's iron core in order to pilot it like a spaceship. That all sounds very reasonable and well thought out (!).

Matter appears to exist, to other matter. It is a closed system of energy transfers.
Matter is not "solid". It is the energy that gives the appearance of separation and "solidity". Our space is a foam, if you believe the Big Bang.
You may trust cosmologists and astrophysicists, but I don't believe you understand what they have discovered. Perhaps you have latched onto the projections of some of them to reinforce your religious beliefs, or are drawing your own conclusions of what they have discovered to accomplish that same end.
Forces you can't see drive this existence, not what you see. That includes the assumed four fundamental forces.
Study up on the subject a little more before you speak with such certainty, because you are showing a lack of understanding of the actual physical processes. Your understanding appears very topical.
The four forces are really magnets!

It disturbs you that you are just a fancy holograph? You would like to believe that your will is greater than the forces of the universe?

We use those principles in our technology.

Ever try the magnet and hanging rock thing? Add just the smallest bit of iron to the rock and see how it bends to your will.

In journalism school (I know something about this), the first thing you have drilled into you is:
Read your copy, read your copy, then read your copy.
.. don’t think of what you critique as “dumbing down” your writing. It is, but don’t think of it that way ..
