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.

OK, enough, stop. It was really good for the first 3 hours. I'll call ya.
Ouch.
If I was Superman I'd try to keep my options open.

I don't care if u give a shit or not, what I do care about is u thinking u know what my belief is, leave it out if u don't have enough knowledge of it. Don't use my magical beliefs in the wrong way, to get your opinion across, because it doesn't make sense.
Don't u atheists get annoyed when Christians keep telling u atheism is a religion? I have found that most of u do, because you say, we have no belief. The same with me, it's annoying when people keep telling u what your belief is.
"Don't use my MAGICAL BELIEFS in the wrong way?" You admit that you believe in magic? Good for you. You ask that I don't use your magical beliefs in the wrong way? There is NO right way to have magical beliefs. Grown ups don't have magical beliefs. Children yes, adults no. If you harbor magical beliefs then you are delusional. There is no arguing the situation,adults who believe in magic and worse, shape their lives around this belief, are mentally ill, that is a FACT. They suffer from a serious mental illness called DELUSIONAL DISORDER. I'd seek professional help if I were you!

{do not deserve to be treated with respect}

People of all faiths and belief deserve to be treated with human dignity and respect. You may not believe what they do but to be disrespectful only shows us the menacing side of humanity.

Why not practice what you preach, then?

Your denigrating personal comments about Hispanics, directed to me, were not respectful. You placed all Hispanics in a very bad light--you know, riding donkeys, speaking Spanglish, having chickens indoors.

So then you accept David Berkowitz, Jeffery Dahmer, and pretty much every serial kill, mass murderer, and terrorist. You think they should all be allowed to continue because it's "just what they believe?" You don't see the problem with this?

If you want to know something about the Bible, a Christian is last person to ask.
