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.

You should have listened to double fine because you are really making a jackass out of yourself and I think it's from your self admitted mental illness. You have borderline personality disorder I would bet.

You rely way to heavily on these made up (lies) emotional claims of yours. Get help get on your medication and maybe even check yourself back into the mental ward. No really you should because we are watching you melt down.

It is research and comprehension and seeking that which we want to find. My life has been absolutely filled with amazing things and yet my life should have been miserable. I have written on a book on why my life should have been miserable, but have proved why it wasn't miserable but GOD enhanced.
You judge me as a fool, and yet from a child of 8 I was helping an old lady who was in her 80's, and in return, I was given a Shetland Pony, Fury, and I have many tales to tell about that horse.
She died sitting in the ward of emergency at the hospital, of a massive heart attack. I was heart broken, and can still feel the pain of thinking of 'Nan' dying in her wheel chair, maybe alone.
Nearly 50 years later, my Mother unexpectedly died in my arms in the emergency room of a hospital, of a massive heart attack. That was June 9th this year and why I went to Peterborough to visit the graves of my loved ones.
I was ridiculed for caring for a Sister who had been burned to death ~ and jokes were told and laughed about her rotting in the ground.
I love GOD ~ and JESUS and the ANGELS, and thank GOD continually that I am not like those who can joke about 2.5 year old girls being burned to death by boys playing with matches.
However, I have a dried rose that I received when I went to see Anthony, our equivalent to John Edwards, and received messages from my Sister that were also proven, because I had not known what he told me, but it was proved by my Mother later on the phone.
I was also told that her short life was a sacrifice, and that she did it to be further Spiritually enhanced in her next life; a life you don't believe in.
I seek that knowledge and find it; you deny it and lose it!! And you have lost it, because everyone has it!!

That's why you don't take your psychiatric medication because the voices tell you they're all these evil poisonous pills trying to take the angel voices out of your head.

If those using the church and religion were motivated by power and control and committed atrocities frequently mentioned this is their mirror image.
Lenin used atheism as a tool,his motivation being power and control. If one doesn't care for judging all Atheists by Lenins actions one should afford Christians the same courtesy.
Here we agree. People of today are responsible for their own actions, not those of previous generations even of those who shared some aspects of one ideology or the other. While we can and should--must--learn from the past, using elements of it to denigrate people today is nothing more than a pseudo intellectual variation of childish playground taunting. This whole argument about which monsters of the past were atheists and which were believers is nothing more or less than a childish exercise in shoveling hoseshit and flinging it back and forth at each other. Can't we all grow up just a little bit? Can't we talk about things that actually have meaning?

I lost all respect for most of the Atheists on here. They slam the fundie for not looking at the facts, basing their beliefs on feelings and indoctrination; and then they do the same damn thing.

<quoted text>Imagination overboard LOL!! Still can't explain how a chicken became a chicken or a rooster became a rooster and that the chicken can produce eggs, but the rooster can't!! But they have proved that the chicken came before the egg! And why some birds fly but others can't! Evolution is supposed to be the ability to adapt to survive the dangers presented to each species, and yet the Lion has not overcome man(kind) and nor has the Elephant, all of which also evolved from the same 'original' life form as per that posting. And they think I am silly!!!
It seems more likely to me that whatever species eventually evolved into chickens was laying eggs long before that happened. Roosters are chickens, as are hens. I'd have to look into it, but I suspect that the difference is the same as with humans, i.e., XY as opposed to XX genotypes and that fertilizing hens rather than laying eggs is just a variant on the two roles in human reproduction.

Except for species that were modified by human breeding techniques, birds that can't fly have other have other attributes that allowed their species to thrive in the conditions in which they evolved.

Species don't need to overcome one another, only to survive and propagate.

You're not silly so much as unlearned. If a relatively uneducated musician can answer these questions so easily, why can't you?

Scientists are allowed to change their minds; they can kill us with their drugs and chemicals, and they have and still do, and it is put down to progress.
They are only learning what was known in the first place! And if you don't think that evolutionists believe that every life form we see evolved from the first organism, then debate it with them.
And if you don't think Darwin's theory was evolution was prevention of extinction, what do you think it is? And if you have no thoughts, don't even consider yourself 'ignorant' on the subject, you are not even that competent to be called ignorant.
The article is absurd. If "a protein found only in a chicken's ovaries is necessary for the formation of the egg," then only chickens should be able to lay eggs. So are all birds chickens? Were the dinosaurs that laid eggs with similar shells actually chickens? I was rather surprised that the dateline on the article was not April 1. Too many species that are definitively NOT chickens lay eggs with shells for this article to be true.

With all due respect, the articles you've posted don't add to your credibility at all. The pattern--or lack of on--in the articles you cite implies that you believe articles too easily, ranging from legitimate science to junk science and seem unable to distinguish the difference between the two. You would benefit from greater skepticism and a more rigorous methodology in evaluating what you read.

PRINCETON, NJ -- More than 9 in 10 Americans still say "yes" when asked the basic question "Do you believe in God?"; this is down only slightly from the 1940s, when Gallup first asked this question.

Despite the many changes that have rippled through American society over the last 6 ½ decades, belief in God as measured in this direct way has remained high and relatively stable. Gallup initially used this question wording in November 1944, when 96% said "yes." That percentage dropped to 94% in 1947, but increased to 98% in several Gallup surveys conducted in the 1950s and 1960s. Gallup stopped using this question format in the 1960s, before including it again in Gallup's May 5-8 survey this year."

That's my point ~ how often and how regularly things change..... and whether or not you think it is legitimate, you are probably partaking in their killer chemicals.

And with all due respect to you too, at least you had the sense to realise I was posting stuff written by scientists, where as some of the posters in here thought it was my own stuff.
