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 believe it ... especially if they're unconscious. But I fail to see why a display of stupid is a good thing, care to explain why we should be impressed with your stupid?

Who said you should be impressed?

If I only read stupidity that is impressive, I could never respond to you.

Interesting, so you think someone actually reading what the scientific minds post on here is "stupid" but hitting people for no reason is "smart." .... very interesting.

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.
I have been abrasive to you because of your narcissistic behavior. Your ego needed to be deflated because it was and sometimes still is the size of the Goodyear Blimp.

I will relinquish when you stop being a needling narcissistic bully. A troubling side with you is your need to role play as women. Iím not sure what would cause a man to act that way.

Anyway I would prefer a more amiable relationship with you but so far you havenít found it in your heart to stop acting like a jerk.

The opening of the United States Declaration of Independence, written by Thomas Jefferson in 1776, states as follows:

Gah, you really are as vile as they asserted. I gave you the benefit of the doubt and you spew nothing but horrible ad-homs toward someone just because they asked you a very simple question. You are disgusting.

No, the Nazis blamed the Jews for a mythological figure's death.

That's nice. Doesn't change that you're a vile bigot who thinks their religion should get special privileges.

Unless they disagree with you. Then they're unequal.

Ironically, Thomas Jefferson was a deist. Not a Christian or any other religion. He, and many other founding fathers, were free thinkers.

Thank you for your comment. The following was taken from Wiki:

Wiki:

Jefferson rejected the orthodox Christianity of his day and was especially hostile to the Catholic Church as he saw it operate in France.

Throughout his life Jefferson was intensely interested in theology, biblical study, and morality. As a landowner he played a role in governing his local Episcopal Church; in terms of belief he was inclined toward Deism and the moral philosophy of Christianity, though when he was home he attended the Episcopal church and raised his daughters in that faith.

In a private letter to Benjamin Rush, Jefferson refers to himself as "Christian" (1803): "To the corruptions of Christianity I am, indeed, opposed; but not to the genuine precepts of Jesus himself. I am a Christian, in the only sense in which he wished any one to be; sincerely attached to his doctrines, in preference to all others; ascribing to himself every human excellence...

The same argument could be used for pot smoking.
