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.

I'm not a Christian. Funny how Christians can't seem to follow their own religion. Why is that?

Ah right to the US lawlessness of people like James Holmes doesn’t count – right?
The fact that although the murder rate in New York is declining that city alone averages almost 500 homicides a year doesn’t count – right?
Jovan Belcher is not really a role model of the perfect sportsman, so he doesn’t count right?
What you believe is of no relevance
No you don’t know so stop casting aspersions until you do know

It just burns you up inside knowing that the Christian population is growing at a faster rate than the world population, huh?

In 2010, there were 2.30 billion Christians in the world, an increase of 300 million from two billion in 2005. The increase in the Christian population was at a slightly higher rate than that of the world population, 1.3 percent per year, when the total world population increased by 1.2 percent per year.

D'oH!
This might be seen to imply that Christianity is increasing instead of declining? Perhaps (statistically) it is in places like China?

Personally, I find the statistical evidence that religion is steadily declining in developed countries more interesting. It appears to be declining naturally in the face of education and science.

http://www.secularism.org.uk/news/2012/01/gov...

Some support for Christianity sometimes seems to be based on social or other pressures, rather than silly superstitious beliefs like 'Christ is our savior' or 'Mohammed is the messenger of Allah'. I don't think most people are crazy.

From a comment on this article...
http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/magazine-17190113
"My brother and his wife are basically pretending to be Christians and attending church every week without fail, all so that they can improve their chances of getting their daughter into what they consider the best school in the area, which happens to be a church school in a suburb of Bristol. Their friends are also doing the same thing for their own kids. What I find fascinating is the possibility that religious groups running church schools take advantage of parents' anxieties in order to gain the hearts and minds of the next generation."

A law ordered by your God to all his people.

And Catholics really are Christians believe it or not.

Catholics are a subset of Christianity but they aren't Christian, they're catholic.

Why else do they have a different name & different religious practices?

Why am I asking you questions? Go huh your bear.

Oh, so you don't count them when you say things like "There are X billion Christians"?

Damn, you just cut your demographic by 50%...
