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 want to mention that I am involved in this new movement that is a little broader than atheism. it's called monotheistic-fundamentalism. Although it accepts god, but other god like figures like satin, devils, angels, demnond saints etc. It also does not accept the union of a god and a mortal producing a demi-god.
In addition, god is not defined. eg: god is good. Maybe god is not good...maybe god is everything including bad. monotheistic-fundamentalists believe that we are not in the image of god, and when we try to describe god we huminize something that is not humans.
Yes, Athiest go on faith in saying god does not exist because it cannot be proved. Monotheistic-fundamentalism equires no faith because it accepts evrything that is known and unknow. But it leave no room for making things up to support a matter of faith. It's a cool religion. www.monotheistic-fundaentalism.com

:) I used to ponder how voices could travel via a telephone from one side of the world to the other, and learned about under sea cabling! Still a bit hard to digest... but it works :)

***Jan 9 (Reuters)- A break in an undersea cable brought down phone and Internet lines across eastern Libya on Wednesday and forced the closure of the airport in the country's second-largest city Benghazi, the government said.

The cable was cut when it got tangled in a fishing boat's equipment, said the minister of communications and information, Osama Syala.

Prime Minister Ali Zeidan said the cable connected Benghazi to the towns of Mesaad and Brega and technicians were working to repair it.

Libya has been restoring its telecom network slowly since a war in 2011, when leader Muammar Gaddafi cut off mobile communications between his base in the west and the rebel-held east.

Until the cable breaks LOL!!

There is no possible way for any of us to know how we ended up here. Religion is full of fairy tales, science is full of theories... So, in my opinion, it is futile to argue about it. Let people believe what they want if that's what makes them feel a little better about dying... Because that's what it all comes down to in the end. DEATH! The unknown! Do we continue on? Or is it really the end?! The only one's who know the answer are not here to give it to us. But in my opinion, if there were nothing after life, then life itself is meaningless. And there is a reason for everything. IDK, if this came out the way I intended(I'm half drunk)=) But if you can find any living thing on this planet that does not have a purpose, then my theory is debunked!

What do you mean by, "godly day"?
Point taken.. But, I do not quote the Bible that way, nor believe in it verbatim. I think common sense will answer that question...

ps.I hope you wouldn't do any of those things... Again, Have a Godly day...
