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.

Mental disorders require secular counseling. Its what god delusionists need as well.

<quoted text>No dumb ass. I asked YOU about whales on the Ark. You're the idiot that thinks he can "disprove" the Ark story because "whales wouldn't fit on the Ark."

*hint* Whales live in the sea.......

Also you're the imbecile that said that Ark is fake because dinosaurs wouldn't fit...

Any other words of wisdom?
You believe the flood happened and the ark existed.

You have no right to call ANYBODY dumbass, dumbass.

<quoted text>Have you ever considered writing a book of fictitious stories, with you as the hero in each story? In it you could include all your pseudo-science bullshit to create unbelievable situations from which you always manage to escape. Kind of like McGiver. I wold buy your book just to read about your harrowing sea escapades. Let me know the release date, thanks!!

What constitutes a "fact" is a lot more complicated than what you portray. You are unlikely to understand that.

That's a fact.
It's wrong.

How do they treat people like this to get them well?
It depends on the personality disorder. Dave is probably incurable, but it's nice of you to worry about him.

What would possess a man to pretend to be multiple women on topix?
I just donít understand this person known as Catcher1 playing different roles as women. Flirting with you other Atheist as if heís a woman. You do realize youíre talking to a fellow atheist and a man?
If one of his characters goes away. Another new one comes and takes her place. Theyíre always young and attractive women so he would want you to believe. Young beautiful women have better things to do with their time.
They have boyfriends, school, work, friends and family. They donít have time to be on here with a group of Baby Boomers. Hey, if you want to talk to another man pretending to be a woman, knock yourself out.
But I find it waaaaaaaay too freaking weird.
Catcher is only Catcher, Eagle. He isn't anyone else.

Aside from some private info I have, you can tell from the post count. High post count like yours, mine or Catchers, and they don't have socks. Low post count, probably a sock.

Heck, Hiding, let Eagle remain in distress in his fantasy.

Logic my dear boy, pure logic
Whales and many other salt water aquatic animals cannot survive in fresh water
What comes out of the sky why itís raining?
And how much fresh water would be needed to cover the earth to a depth of 8.855 kilometres?(7 metreís higher then the highest mountain as specified in the babble)
I actually worked it out the other day to quote to a creationist, it was around 4,500,000,000 cubic kilometers of water which happens to be around 3.5 times the amount of water that exists on the earth. he has not responded.
And would such an amount of fresh water dilute the salt water?
And having diluted the salt water what would happen to the whales after a year emerged in water with less that 28% the salt content they need?
And yet we still have whales and sharks swimming our seas which just happen to contain slat water of enough salinity to sustain their life.
Or of course you could simply shrug your shoulders, ignore the scientific and natural necessities and say it was magic
um..... What?

A whale couldn't survive for a year on a boat. Are you forgetting that?

Are you also forgetting that God made it rain?

How do you know it was raining fresh water? Were you there? Did you take some samples?

My point is your whole thesis is based on assumption, not facts.

Your scientific analysis is flawed.

Not only are you a sexist moron but you delight in mocking medical conditions Ė you can only be christian
Making stupid statements is a sign of a weak mind
Blindly following a god book is a sign of a weak mind
Depression is a medical condition that can have several triggers. The cause is unknown and can in no what be associated with a weak mind. It is the more intelligent person who is statistically more likely to suffer depression so we can pretty much guarantee that you will never suffer from itís debilitating effects
Depression IS a sign of a weak mind, a weak person.

Boredom is a sign if a weak mind.

Gluttony is a sign of a weak mind.

Depression isn't a "disease" any more than being fat is a "disease".

You're pathetic.
