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.

They had great managers - Mourinho, Ancelotti, Avram Grant, Louis Phelipe Scholari are all great coaches. Great players too - From Schevchenko, to Ballack, to Drogba, to Queresma, to Carvalhio to Hazard. BUT no continuity. Look at Ferguson at United. They churn out trophies by the bucketload, because there is confidence in the system. As a proud United fan, I am prfectly happy to take four straight losses, because in a season or two I know Fergie will win a treble in a season or two

-Eau de Dave-


There once was a man they called Dave.

In dire need of bath, haircut and shave.

He talked of strange gadgets, made of strings

Rocks and magnets, whilst spinning tall

Tales bout' EM and Plasma's - his madness.

Those wispy miasma's, unseen thingies

Dave worships, he blathers and screams at LED screenies

"I'm a genius!, and possess an immense internet PENIS!"

That he insists is mainly for lots of feminine cats?

To which the atheists reply, using

Dave's gimcrackery salad words:

Thanksgiving:

The majority of us the Government of this Representative Republic that vote and the nonvoters that sit on their dead hands and whine are thankful; the President, Governor, Representatives of US the Government, County Commissioners, Township Trustees, Mayors, City Council, School Administrators and Board Members they elected; Defies 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.

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. 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.

And supports candidates for public office paying Media Stockholders billions of dollars derived from constituents donations to advertise their agenda.

And 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 Illegal drug users and Illegal 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 for all stimulus packages, tax abatements, tax incentives, tax refunds, tax credit, and tax exemptions.

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. That 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.

Defying USA Labor Law, the Constitution, and Realities demands is bankrupting USA. Makes free, fair, and affordable commerce IMPOSSIBLE; 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.

An individual has to be warped to take the life of another person, but these people felt that their religious beliefs justified their choice.

Michael Frederick Griffin shot Dr. David Gunn three times while shouting "Don't kill any more babies". In the trial Griffin was reportedly brainwashed by John Burt, a director of a pro-life group, former member of the KKK and a born-again Christian.

Paul Jennings Hill, a former minister was executed for murdering abortion doctors.

Eric Robert Rudolph confessed religious motivation in the killing of two people in his anti-abortion and anti-gay plan.

James Kopp murdered abortion Dr Barnett Slepian. He was a member of a Roman Catholic anti-abortion group.

And then there is the murder of late-term abortion Dr. George Tiller. Scott Roeder, the killer was said by his wife to have "started becoming very religious in the sense that he was reading the Bible".

So far as I can tell these people were not affiliated with any atheist organizations. Why should they not be Christians in your eyes anymore because they broke a commandment?

<quoted text>How do you make the connection if God is not present in hell, you question the existence of hell?
God is not present on the sun, but you see the sun everyday don't you?
Omnipresent means just that. So although God is not on the sun, the sun is in the presence of God. And just because God's Spirit will not be in hell, hell will be in God's presence.
Again, goes back to my question to you yesterday. If you believe God is Omnipotent, then how can you believe some of the bible and not all of it?
You say God is Omnipotent. That means God is powerful enough to inspire His creation mankind to record EXACTLY in the bible what God wants us to know. And to intervene into the affairs of mankind to make sure ONLY the authentic books are included in the bible.
That is Omnipotence. To say you embrace some of the bible, and not all, you're conceding you do not believe God is omnipotent....and you could an atheist.
God is within every atom and every cell.“He is in the creation and the creation is within him”.

I only believe in the parts of the Bible that do not contradict my faith, my faith does not believe that the entire Bible is correct. Why would God make a place to burn his own children, what a heartless God you believe in!

Yes, we deny the hell and heaven that the Abrahamic religions talk about.

“In the cave of intuitive wisdom I sit, absorbed in the silent trance of the Primal Void. I have obtained my seat in the heavens.||1||”(Guru Granth Sahib, p.97)

“What is hell, and what is heaven? The Saints reject them both.”(Guru Granth Sahib, p.969)

“By mere talk, people do not earn passage to Heaven. Salvation comes only from the practice of Truth.”(Guru Granth Sahib, p.141)

“Make good deeds the soil, and let the Word of the Shabad be the seed; irrigate it continually with the water of Truth. Become such a farmer, and faith will sprout. This brings knowledge of heaven and hell, you fool!||1||”(Guru Granth Sahib, p.24)

“Without the karma of good actions, heaven is not attained.”(Guru Granth Sahib, p.952)

“One who speaks lies shall fall into hell and burn.”(Guru Granth Sahib, p.142)

“The Guru’s Word saves one from falling into hell.”(Guru Granth Sahib, p.177)

“Don’t wish for a home in heaven, and don’t be afraid to live in hell. Whatever will be will be, so don’t get your hopes up in your mind.||1||Sing the Glorious praises of the Lord, from whom the most excellent treasure is obtained”(Guru Granth Sahib, p.337)

“Greed, emotional attachment to Maya, possessiveness, the service of evil, pleasure and pain – those who are not touched by these, are the very embodiment of the Divine Lord.||1||Heaven and hell, ambrosial nectar and poison, gold and copper – these are all alike to them. Praise and slander are all the same to them, as are greed and attachment.||2||They are not bound by pleasure and pain – know that they are truly wise. O Nanak, recognize those mortal beings as liberated, who live this way of life.||3||7||”(Guru Granth Sahib, p.220)

For your belief, I am an atheist!
