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.

Of course the virus doesn’t want that. It wants to remain control of your mind. So it remains an active defiant virus trying to reduplicate itself in others. I know that if you had the deep cleansing. You would be a new creature with a pure heart of gold.
There you go again, you keep equating living organisms with machines, do you ever learn anything? anything at all?

If anything, a god delusion is akin to having AIDS, we might be able to cure you, but it's terminal to your intelligence.

How can one deny "nothing?" We believe in no gods, the word atheism is a definition for a nothing, an absence. If you can make up stuff about "nothing" more power to you, it's still made up because nothing means just that, nothing. We don't believe in any god, we're just one up on you is all.

Your athi-rules said nothing about God.

1. There is something called "Faith"

2. The cure for faith is science

3. Science is the opposite of religion

4. Religion exists.

5. Faith, as defined above, is the most dangerous and wicked force on earth

Well, at least you got one thing right...

Bible thumper is a pejorative term used to describe Christians in general, especially someone perceived as aggressively pushing their religion.

I don't know any of those.....

And "atheists are the honest people"?!?

LMAO!

Topix atheists sure don't have that trait.

... oh so you abridged it, still making up a lot of stuff about nothing. I give you credit, it takes skill to make up stuff about a literal nothing.

Here's your atheist doctrine.
1. There is something called "Faith" which can be defined as unjustified belief held in the teeth of the evidence. Faith is primarily a matter of false propositional belief.
2. The cure for faith is science: The existence of God is a scientific question: either he exists or he doesn't. "Science is the only way of knowing – everything else is just superstition" [Robert L. Park]
3. Science is the opposite of religion, and will lead people into the clear sunlit uplands of reason. "The real war is between rationalism and superstition. Science is but one form of rationalism, while religion is the most common form of superstition" [Jerry Coyne] "I am not attacking any particular version of God or gods. I am attacking God, all gods, anything and everything supernatural, wherever and whenever they have been or will be invented." [Dawkins]
4. Religion exists. It is essentially something like American fundamentalist protestantism, or Islam. More moderate forms are false and treacherous: if anything even more dangerous, because they conceal the raging, homicidal lunacy that is religion's true nature.[Sam Harris]
5. Faith, as defined above, is the most dangerous and wicked force on earth today and the struggle against it and especially against Islam will define the future of humanity.[atheists]
Moronic, I know. But that's atheists for ya!
I really feel sorry for you.

Atheism is the lack of belief in god/gods. Anything beyond that is something else.

Perhaps you would like to direct your frustrations to something called anti-theism.

Bible thumper is also used by many christians as a self descriptive in some locations down south, south east. I don't hear it up here. So ... why are you all defensive when someone who doesn't agree with you uses it?

I call you creatard, which you are, it's an apt description and even follows the psychological guidelines for the use of the word retarded. You think it's insulting, because you know it's accurate.

Bible thumper is likely the same scenario, you know it's accurate because you use that mythology as a bludgeoning tool.

No one who is interested in human history, past and present, can ignore the Catholic Church, either as an institution which has been the central figure in the civilized world for nearly two thousand years, decisively affecting its destinies, religious, literary, scientific, social and political, or as an existing power whose influence and activity extend to every part of the globe.

Did I ask of you attended your church? Effing retard running and hiding as expected. One more time coward. What church do you belong to? Grow a sack and say what wacky cult you belong to.

Although seeing as how you like more and more Christians do not attend church just backs up the fact why churches are closing at an alarming rate. Thank you for your contribution to that.

Oh and Catholics are Christians.

Btw why are so many believers on here terrified to say what brand of Christianity they belong to?

Maybe because they're Pentecostal.

That looks about right for RR there. Pentecostals are always bashing the Catholics and the pope.

Plus he seems like one of those shouting in tongues dancing like an epileptic retards.

That has always baffled me why so many of the believers on here flat refuse to say what brand of Christianity they belong or perscribe to. It terrifies them to do so. Rather pathetic I must say.
