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.

....Your conscience is the 'God'! What God r u looking for? What do u want God to be?
I don't know if there is a God or not, but the Guru proved that their belief can bring peace, but if people don't want to believe it then they still didn't force it.
You asked me, can atheism do what Sikhism did? But I really don't know. Maybe it can, but that's your belief, it's your job to prove it.
Why don't u atheists start your own organisation or something? Try to run your own community. Your rules, your way and then see.
I will say one thing; whether u believe in God or not it does not change the person u are. This is just a personal choice, that's all!
Mostly, all young kids believe in Santa, but still some kids r good and some kids r bad, not because it has anything to do with believing in Santa but because that's just the way they are.
Atheism doesn't have any rules.

If you'd like to see the rules I strive to live by, look up secular humanism.

No gods needed.

And I don't get my conscience from any god.

I'm a grown up.

Belief is inconsequential to whether or not something exists.
You haven't demonstrated, and nobody has, that it does exist. It's a subjective reality from which you make choices. I don't live in your reality, so I can't make choices based on YOUR perceptions.
Are you choosing to go to Murder Town?
There is a reason you haven't answered this.
Hey Tide, How ya Doin'? How have things been? Ready, for Christmas?

Yh, I read that before, u told me to.

I said your conscience is the God, not u get your conscience from God.

Hey, that's my line, u copycat, I'm a grown up, too!

Look, if u can be a good human-being without 'God', then go for it!

Batty, u had any visits from bible bashers, yet? OMG, I've been acting like 007 in my own home, trying to hide from them, they always try to ruin my mood, but i don't give up either!

So in the wild you believe these beds could just strike up a conversation with a human? Asking and answering random questions?

You really believe these birds are doing far more than mimicking? Wow you just keep getting dumber. Thank goodness there is no afterlife or your Dad would be red faced right now.

I don't need to call my conscience god, but I get what you're saying.

No babble thumpers since I answered the door for some JW's with a plastic wiffle bat I just happened to have in my hand and told them I didn't have time. I was busy beating my kids.

The look was priceless.

P.S., Instead of hiding from them, answer the door naked sometime.

That's sure to get SOME kind of reaction worth the price.

The point is that Hell exists whether you believe in it or not.
If you don't choose Jesus, you choose Hell.
That's just the way it is.
Some things'll never change.
Where is it? GPS coordinates? Is there a trap door there at Judgement Day? Chutes and Ladders?

That's why everyone in the Bible is depicted as carrying staffs. My dog tried to come in with a big stick in his mouth. He was denied by the dimensions of the door. If it stops you from coming in, I guess, it'll stop you from going out too. I'm whittling mine now.

I have opened the door a couple of times and said, "i'm not well, i'm busy, i'm SIKH!!!!!!". They just send different people out, it's always worse near Christmas time, they just got nothing better to do.

And in that book, Krauss explains what he means by "nothing".
So what's your point?
<quoted text>
And we all know what a good job popular journalists do in explaining science, don't we?
If journalists mischaracterized the work of Krauss it was his responisibilty to call them on it. Of course its perfectly understandable that he chose not to considering their reporting was far more flattering than the real truth.

Krauss already has enough to keep him busy. Attempting to police journalists for oversimplifications or hyperbole is not likely to be part of his focus.

Payroll Taxes:

USA Labor Law, The Constitution, and demands of Natural Law: what Mother Nature, God, or Whatever Power decreed to be the reality of the real world, democracy, capitalism, the US Constitution, and free, fair, and affordable commerce and common sense demands.

Demands Government holds every Stockholder, corporation, farmer, business, outsourcer sweatshop, and nonprofit, tax-exempt, organization and Church accountable. To market the cost in the wholesale and retail price of his or her product and service; of workers, consumers, and taxpayer's paying all taxes including payroll tax; and wages (union contract), healthcare, pension, investment and independent business profit.

This enables every worker, consumer, and taxpayer to pay healthcare insurance premium or pay healthcare provider. Pay ALL taxes and pay for every product and service they use for life. With money derived from wages, investment profit, and independent business profit.

And enables every parent to educate, love, nurse, nurture, discipline, protect, and provide; for every child (job) they conceive. And fund schools, infrastructure, local and national security, government services, and etc.; with money derived from wages, investment profit, and independent business profit.

The majority of Us the Government of this Representative Republic that vote and the nonvoters that sit on their dead hands and whine; insist on reelecting Obnoxious President, Governor, Representatives of US the Government, County Commissioners, Township Trustees, Mayors, City Council, School Administrators and Board Members.

That defies USA Labor Law, The Constitution, and demands of Natural Law: what Mother Nature, God, or Whatever Power decreed to be the reality of the real world, democracy, capitalism, the US Constitution, and free, fair, and affordable commerce and common sense demands.

And holds Union workers, consumers, taxpayers, and America’s grandchildren’s children, Government employees, Parents, Teachers, Veterans, Police, Firemen, and Fathers disqualified for affirmative action with white skin, Representatives deny Collective Bargaining Rights accountable.

To fund Illegal drug users and Immigrants, lottery, casino, and keno losers, unemployed Union workers replaced with nonunion workers, Human Traffickers, waitresses that pander for life for $2.00 per hour, slaves in tax abated enterprise zones, low-income child labor, consumers, and taxpayers, volunteers without wages, and nonunion workers willing to work for fewer wages than they can afford life. That pays with welfare checks, food stamps, housing vouchers, and Medicaid.

Pay for all stimulus packages, tax abatements, tax incentives, tax refunds, tax credit, and tax exemptions.

Pay sales tax on the more stock dividends (money) OPEC Nations, Enron Stockholders, Wal-Mart Stockholders, Hillarys, Chinese, Foreign and Domestic Investors and Stockholders (money marketers) market quarterly. In the wholesale and retail price of every product and service Human Beings use for life. And School Boards and Government needs to build, maintain and operate schools, infrastructure, and provide local and national security, and Government services. That gets only product or service.

Needed to measure and maintain the strength and growth of this UNAFFORDABLE economy and distribute money Human Beings cannot digest, burn in internal combustion engines, or burn to heat and cool their American Dream. Into OPEC Nations, Enron Stockholders, Wal-Mart Stockholders, Hillarys, Chinese, Foreign and Domestic Investors and Stockholders portfolios.

This defiance of USA Labor Law, The Constitution, and Realities demands created Ohio’s $1.35 trillion budget deficit, the $40 trillion social security and the $16 trillion national debt.

This makes it IMPOSSIBLE for President Barrack Obama and Congress to avoid fiscal cliff and balance every budget.
