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 never got grape juice.

And the wafers suck.

Hmmm.

Maybe it IS the violence and sadism.

Good thinking :)

I have heard the battlefield earth novel is better than the movie. I caught the movie on Netflix for laughs, check out the nostalgia critic's review on it.

:)

P.S. scientologists are batsht insane and even many of Hubbard's own friends say when it came to Scientology Hubbard was a wicked man because he didn't even believe in it but just wanted to take advantage of the weak minded.

Why would any go to the trouble of making a replica of a mythical vessel? We know that no such vessel could have possible been seaworthy, we know that science has shown that no such event could have possibly taken place, so why would anyone waste time and money on what amount to a children's story? Why don't they make an exact replica of Santa's workshop replete with elves and flying reindeer?

How about using that money to help the poor and sick in India. The one's that Mother the demon Theresa failed to help. She thought suffering brought people closer to God. In the end she realized how evil she was and denounced her faith.

Hitchens won awards for his charity work. Shelves of awards. How many have you received?

I guess as usual you just pull stuff out if your Christhole.

I respect what you are saying. I don’t know if there were any improprieties. I just find it hard to believe what a slob would say,(Hitchens). Who never in his entire life did anything for anyone other than himself.

Thank you for responding to me doctor.[tips hat] Scientists make mistakes with science. We can't be sure our science is more accurate than the bible.

Next time I'll tell you about the Emperor who had no clothes. It shows atheist don't understand.

Bless you.

As usual you rabidly defend believers while attacking non believers. Well it's just nice that you stopped pretending to be an agnostic. That was humiliating for you.

I'm not sure she contributed to the plight of the poor and sick in India. I don't think she made them sicker or poorer. Perhaps she helped them in her time or perhaps she didn't. I don't think she made them any worse off.

She was just a woman.

I don't know how Hubbard's estate works but I don't want to buy any of his books in case one penny goes to scientology.

No wonder US tax coffers are so empty when you've got Travolta and Cruise evading paying taxes to the country that has given them everything.
