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.

Have u noticed that Aura is acting a bit strange these days? It's like he's a different person, or maybe it's just me.
We need to tone down the rhetoric.

You rat.

You promised to wear the uniform only for me!

You can wear the nun costume, but not the uniform.

Tide, I haven't wrote anything like that since I did my GCSE's. I used to write lovey dovey poetry in Hindi, but then I gave up, I'll try and remember what I wrote and then translate it into English. I find it really hard to think like that, now.
I watched a film called source code, OMG, I'm confused. Have u seen it?
Catcher, don't worry, Tide will protect us both!:-)
Tide, it's all on u now!! Good luck!!!
I've seen Source Code. I liked it. Did you see any of the Back to the Future movies?

Mr. Gorbachev, tear down this wall of text!

I agree. Few people are focusing on practical matters and go right for the idealism, which normally I would say is great for forum talk, but in this case it just stirs up strong emotion and gets people upset.

What are some thing we can all agree to that would make our schools safer?

At least you grey boxed when you made the post, I'd be embarrassed to use a registered name too, had I posted what you said.

Based upon statistics the majority that died in those accidents were Christian, with the possibility of some being atheist etc...

All unfortunate, no matter what their theistic belief or lack thereof happened to be.

Nice.

You might notice that no atheist said "Hopefully they were all topix Christians".(Well, except for me, right there.)

You prove once again that atheists can have higher moral standards than Christians.

Thank you.

A good article.

Something Topix atheists and too many Christians don't truly understand. Divinity comes from within, not without. Wisdom and truth comes from through us, not preached to us.

Stupid Topix atheists, they wrap their "scientists" in white robes and put halos on their head. Then bow at their feet.

Why are Topix atheists incapable of thinking in the abstract? Glorified electrons with limited circuitry.

Existence is a light shining and bouncing off thingies. Something provided the light switch.

Hey Dave!

I see that our magnetism has pulled you back in here and you're all plugged in.

BTW, the thread has evolved into a gun control discussion board.

More ignorance of Atheism AND Religion!

Educate yourself-

Atheism = belief depending on evidence
Faith = belief in the absence of evidence

Can I make it any simpler for you??

Hey Dave!

Welcome back. Again.

Interesting article. I'm wondering, though.

What gives you the idea that we don't hold science and scientists up to the same skeptical standard as we do religion?

Let me give you a couple of examples.

Super luminal neutrinos-When I saw this report, I was excited at the potential of brand new knowledge, but I was doubtful of the precision of the measurement methods and that all the factors of shooting neutrinos through that much of the earth were taken into account. As it turned out, the measurements WERE flawed, and scientists, also skeptical, found the flaws.

The Martian meteorite-Those little microbe things LOOKED like they could be once live microbes. But they also looked like they blended into the meteorite. I also wondered (still do) if something the size of bacteria can even BE fossilized. I would think they are too small and frail, but I don't know. Either way, science and scientists once again cleared this up.

LIGO-The experiment to detect gravity waves. Considering the microscopic accuracy required over a 4 mile distance, I have my doubts that even the earth's crust is stable enough for the level of precision. Same goes for the proposed space based LIGO system. Of course, I don't KNOW if my concerns are legitimate, but I am fairly certain that any potential results will be closely scrutinized.

At least there is no equivalent of the pope in science. No single, ultimate authority.

Sure, chuck.

Show us the atheist evidence that there is no God.

It's exactly the same evidence you need to show us that there is no teapot orbiting the sun between Jupiter and Mars.

One, read the Bible! If that isn't enough proof...

Second, there is no evidence that a god exists.

Psst You are done waiting.

Absence of evidence is not evidence of absence.
