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.

The Supreme Court of the United States is going to take up the case of same sex marriage. What does this have to do with atheism? Apparently a lot since most if not all the topix atheist are liberals. The Supreme Court could swing the pendulum in either direction.

When the Supreme Court rules itís going to set a precedence. It will become law of the land until the Supreme Court takes it up again in a few years. Something tells me thereís going to be a lot of unhappy campers after their ruling.

Precedent, Eagle.

When the Supreme Court rules, it will set precedent.

Not precedence--precedent.

You'll have to hold your breath for the result..

Liberal and conservative has nothing to do with allowing gay marriage, it's a Republican versus Democrat argument. No true conservative wants more laws, therefore, no true conservative would want any laws banning something that influences personal lives and has no impact on anyone else. Liberals should, but they don't for some reason, want more laws forcing gay marriage or something like that. Bans are more laws, more government, and more intrusion in our personal lives, that goes against every conservative ideal, and why I do not support bans.

Republicans are just idiots with god delusions, most Democrats are just lesser idiots with god delusions, a few of the Democrats lack the delusion. Most atheists are probably just choosing Democrats as the lesser of two evils because we're not stupid enough to think that anyone with a god delusion is actually fit to run a country, much less tell anyone how to live.

Thats a misconception. Atheists have beliefs about lots of things, just like everyone else. The difference is that those beliefs are based on reality, and not on supernatural things.

That's been my process for the last 20 years. It's like choosing between suicide and a firing squad sometimes.

It's similar over here. I vote against, not for.

Another apt descriptive. Yes, it does seem like those are the real choices lately. Even I became too comfortably numb to the reality of it and just kept the routine hoping no one mistook me for the next target on their practice range. Medical emergency sort of shocked me into realizing that this country is messed up because too many of us kept going through the routine for the same reason, just hoping we don't get screwed. Now I tell people, vote third, or fourth, or fifth party on your local elections, chance the balance of power, put some people who might actually do their jobs into all the offices, otherwise this country is completely lost.

Most people don't even vote for their school board members, the largest spenders of local taxes and managers of education (first bastion for/against creationism, etc.). Usually it is no more than a popularity contest among the idle rich and powerful.
Oh wait! That is all of American politics.
Never mind. Pass the blindfold, I can't watch anymore. <head on desk>

Did you know the Amish don;t teach religion in their schools here and that they are open to the public ?

Great video.

Very compelling, but it won't sway the hardcore believer.

It will just piss him off. Truth does that to the desperately faithful.

<quoted text>Well..... Kinda, sorta, a lil bit.

Religion is a pursuit or interest that someone ascribes a lot if importance to. Evidence is not a driving factor or motivator, which is why religion requires faith.

Your description of science is close enough. It seems though, that many atheists kinda have a "belief system" instilled in their minds. Like science is a perfect & flawless system to have faith in.

I won't throw a fit, maybe shit, but not a fit.
Name one atheist-hell, name ANYBODY-who thinks science is a perfect and flawless system.

You're lying for Jesus again.

Jesus kills a puppy every time you lie.

Why do you hate puppies?

Science can not provide answers to all if our questions. It's a bug part yes, but it's not the whole.

There can be no scientific method applied to any non-scientific topic.
You don't want truth.

You want to be rescued from death.
