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.

Hey Boss that's not ad hominem: as I said, it's the fact.

Now get back to your bible.
That's why I don't mind pointing out his stupidity.

The black pot calls the kettle,“You’re nothing but an cheap black kettle with no glass. You don’t even have a top.”

The Kettle looks surprised because the pot was black too. And also was cheap with no glass. Yes it’s true he didn’t have a pot head. But he didn’t need one.

So the moral of the story, pots and pot heads need to take a close look themselves before criticizing others.
You really need to stop writing your own material.

My belief is my belief, yours is yours, stop forcing it on people. I don't think like you christians/muslims my mind is at peace.

Do you know when the khalsa was chosen by my 10th guru didn't say come and convert and be khalsa and go to heaven, they said God wants sacrifice, give your head to God if you truly believe in your God. Out of 50,000 or so sikhs only 5 got up to give their head to God. The guru didn't kill them instead he baptised them and took baptism from them and said these are the true believers in God.

Guru/God doesn't want the sheep, other religions can have them, we want the pure one's that will die for their faith, not the cowards. When death comes I hope God gives me the strength to accept my destiny. If my God wants me to go to hell then so be it!
I hope I die in my sleep, like my father.

Not screaming in terror like his passengers.

14Dec12.....

.....A Dutchman has built a replica of Noah's Ark to biblical proportions, following a dream his homeland would be flooded.

Johan Huibers, a wealthy businessman, used the ancient measurement of the cubit -- the length of a man's arm from elbow to fingertips -- to build the vessel to the dimensions specified in the book of Genesis.

The finished craft -- which has just been opened to the public on the Merwede River in the Dutch town of Dordrecht -- is 300 cubits long (about 450 feet or 137 meters), 50 cubits wide (about 70 feet or 21 meters), and 30 cubits high (about 45 feet or 14 meters).

Floods force evacuations in Costa Rica

Huibers has filled his ark, which will operate as a "Bible museum," with life-sized plastic animals and an aviary of live birds to give visitors more to interact with.

"We want to tell people about God," Huibers told AFP. "We wanted to build something that can help explain the Bible in real terms."

It is not Huibers' first ark. He completed his first, a half-scale replica of Noah's Ark, in 2004, and used it to take tourists on canal trips, before beginning work on a full-scale version in 2008.

The origin of the project stems from a dream Huibers said he had in 1992, in which the low-lying Netherlands was flooded by the North Sea.

More damage expected after floods in North Korea kill dozens

"The next day I bought a book about Noah's Ark. That night while sitting on the couch with my kids, I looked at it and said:'It's what we're going to do,'" he told AFP. "I have always been a dreamer."

He resolved to build the ark, to inspire children with the biblical story of how Noah and the inhabitants of his Ark survived the flood that, according to Old Testament, washed the world clean of sin.

Despite his best efforts, it was impossible to adhere entirely to the biblical description of the Ark. Genesis describes Noah's boat as made of "gopher wood," but experts disagree over what this is.

Instead, Huibers and his team built the boat by welding together the metal hulls of 25 barges into a single frame, which was then covered with Scandinavian pine. Weighing about 3,000 tons, the boat contains sleeping quarters, a theater, restaurant and conference facilities to seat 1,500 people.

Critics claimed that it was notair worthy, it was too bigand would not beable to fly because it was heavy. It wasa ship with wings. Wiki: Duringa Senate hearing onAugust 6, 1947 (the first ofa series ofappearances), Hughes said:{The Hercules wasa monumental undertaking. It is the largestaircraft everbuilt. It is over five stories tall witha wingspan longer thana football field. That's more thana city block. Now, I put the sweat of my life into this thing.

.....and BobLoblah has 'sat' inside this von, right next to the replica image of 'ol Howard himself.

Ps:.....'ol Howard, while being a gigolo to begin with.....Katherine Hepburn, Rita Hayworth, Jane Russell...he had'em ALL..(they were interested ONLY in getting their foot inna doors of Hollywood movieLand...hence Whores)....eventually turned himself around and while 'holedUP' in his floors of a hotel outside the US of A, he oftenTimes asked his rightHand man (Noah Dietrich) to have a priest come visit him.

Note:....'ol Howard flew his Spruce Goose for only 38 seconds and took it back down on the water. When asked why he only stayed UP such a short time,'ol Howard said ..."I told the media that if my plane couldn't fly, that I would leave the US of A forever".

What a guy. Good 'ol Howard. Not tooooooooo many Howards around today. Both Bill Gates and Steven Jobs came in a little close.

.....Nope. It didn't happen dat vey and there were many species of animals NOT in dat neck of da woods.

Ps:.....While the Great Flood happened, it happened in the area of Noah's country (not a country at the time). The landMass surrounding the coastlime (stretching 1000s of miles) gave away to the NorthWest and a great deluge of water came rushing into the area. Think of it like some kinda of Tsuami coupled with rains and winds. Aside from the animals that Noah placed on board (together with his family and relatives and friends.....who would you put on board!!!)....the remainder that didn't manage to get on board perished in the flood.

....Proof....birds continued to 'Fly'...and 'ol Saltie kept on chewin' down on wilderbeast and Sharks keptUP their feasts on Seals.

....River trout did well tooooo.

When the flood was over and the wadders subsided, Noah stepped out, released ALL the animals (no snakes), lit up a fire, cooked up some meat, boiled some veggies, went to bed and said 'Thank GOD' that's over....while thinking about his blinking at the RainBow on our Pale Blue Dot.

What I really need is super powers. In America, they are being challenged, and they are losing. Throughout American history, Christianity, our majority religion, has been changing, progressing, splintering, morphing, to the point where there are many disparate "Christian" beliefs. The religion has been under social pressure to adapt, because the alternative, remaining the same,would have meant elimination. We are getting to the point where social pressure is demanding changes too quickly. The religion isn't adapting fast enough. The religious aren't dropping unacceptable beliefs in enough numbers to facilitate a cultural shift within the religion. That creates a bigger divide between progressive Christians and fundamentalists, and a bigger divide between all Christians and non-believers/believers of other religions. The reasons for faith and religion in the generic sense have existed throughout recorded history. We needed those things in the past, many need them now, and many will need them in the future. These are not the only paths to knowledge, understanding, and beyond family relationships. If the entire world can attain the kind of peace and prosperity that first world nations have, we can substantially decrease the negative elements of faith and religion. The result of that will probably also be a substantial decrease in people who hold religious beliefs. That is the natural progression as I see it. We learn from our mistakes, and do better. What is truly good about religion, will persist, because people will recognize that it was actually good and beneficial. We can do it if we try!
