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.

A flood of biblical proportions more than likely really did occur around the time Noah built his ark, says one historian, and he has proof.
Robert Ballard, who famously found the wreckage of the Titanic in 1985 and was more recently involved in the search for Amelia Earhart’s plane, says there is a very real possibility that during Noah’s time period–about 12,000 years ago–massively iced-over lands collided with the sudden rising of the Mediterranean Sea, creating a wall of water which would have wiped out everything in its path with a force 200 times greater than that of Niagara Falls.
“Where I live in Connecticut there was ice a mile above my house, all the way back to the North Pole, about 15 million kilometers; that’s a big ice cube,” he said.“But then it started to melt. We’re talking about the floods of our living history.”
Ballard has been working on an underwater expedition to prove such a cataclysmic event occurred, and says he found an ancient shoreline 400 feet below the surface of the Black Sea. Carbon dating on shells discovered there prove there was an event powerful enough to bury the shoreline around 5,000 B.C., which is the time some say Noah lived.
“It probably was a bad day,” Ballard said.“At some magic moment, it broke through and flooded this place violently, and a lot of real estate, 150,000 square kilometers of land, went under.”
Ballard doesn’t hold out hope of actually finding an ark, but he does believe there are many treasures beneath the sea around Turkey and is making plans for more expeditions there. So far he’s found pottery and an ancient shipwreck which still held the bones of its occupants.

Unfortunately the man is NOT a scientist, and for that matter not a very good historian since he is unaware of the date of the last ice age. The ice age that put a giant ice cube one mile above his house in CT. The last ice age began in the Pliocene era about 20 million years ago.

He also fails to realize as you do, that the Earth is a CLOSED SYSTEM, we can't make "new" water, what we have is all there is. Granted should the water locked in ice in both the pole's melt in would flood major cities along coastal areas, but there simply is NOT enough water on the globe to flood the entire surface of the globe. That would take somewhere in the order of 3.5 billion cubic MILES of EXTRA water.

I am surprised at you for not knowing basic facts concerning the planet you live on.

Geological evidence of a world-wide flood would be a single identifiable world-wide layer of sediment. There is no such evidence, it's a myth, please don't embarrass yourself by posting batshit crazy people's take on an event that never took place.

Time is of little concern. I can write them in about 5 minutes.
Clementia is a lovely girl,
with burning eyes of flame,
a tornado in a dress when twirled,
she rocks me like a hurricane.
She sweeps me off my feet,
she hurls me into the sky,
in the thunderhead we meet,
as lightning strikes I cry.
My tears become a torrent fall,
precipitating anguish across the land,
I cannot reach her after all,
I become buried deep in the sand.

In my religion or culture people like you are not called atheists, that's why i get so confused in english. In those days people who said, from their mouths that they don't believe in God didn't even exist, maybe there was 1 or 2 people in India, but i even doubt that. An atheist in my religion is a person who doesn't believe in 'God' from their hearts. They are the baddest people on this planet. "Those who have love from the bottom of their hearts are true, those who have one thing in their heart and another on their lips are a burden on this earth." -GGS They say we believe in one God, but then the kill other people because they have greed, jealousy or fear in their hearts. labels are not always good, coz u end up judging the thing before u know anything about it. I told u i'm 'religious' u thought i would be a nut like them (i'm a nut in my own way), but if i'm not the same religious as them I shouldn't havebeen given the same label, u get what i mean? It doesn't make any difference to me if atheism is a belief or not, my opinion of you will not change, whatever makes you guys happy. yh, i see what they try to do.

I was going to say white crayons but then I thought that if they were using black paper then I thought crayons are non-toxic, then I thought that water is non-toxic, then I thought water is clear, then I thought.. any way white on white works.

White is the least used Crayon in the box according to Crayola. It's a conspiracy by the paper companies. They're all racist.

That one.
And what's included in that "system" other than the "belief" that there is no god?
