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.

Watch PBS series The Abolitionists?

http://www.pbs.org/wgbh/americanexperience/fi...
I am not a Christian fundamentalist but a lot of abolitionists were.

The Abolitionists will be shown in public school classes on dvd.

Excellent series.

Shows John Brown in Church dedicating his life to abolishing slavery.

Enjoy!

Meanwhile thousands of Christians fought to continue slavery even quoting scripture to back up their reasoning.

Truth hurts.

And thousands of atheists also fought to continue slavery. After all in atheism there is nothing wrong with slavery.

God had some specific instructions for the Sabbath and you keep them everyday? You never cook or Clean? Or is it that you are ignorant to what it means to keep the sabbath holy?

You don't have any pictures, paintings or statues? Or do you not know that you are not to have them?

Cherry picking atheists.

Pictures, paintings or statues are fine to have - so long as they're not worshipped.

Oh please. Every Christian cherry-picks what parts of the Bible they accept or reject. And when it contradicts itself, which side of the contradiction they prefer.

Ans...So maybe you should sit back and reexamine your beliefs, and why you have them. You really don't have to though, you can stay in your own blissful ideologies, as well.

I can't speak of every Christian and neither can you.

He either ignorantly or deceitfully twisted scripture.

Atheists seem to do that a lot.

Do you think GOD told us not to eat on a day of the week, to look after our children, change their clothes, feed the animals etc etc? Do you think GOD wanted a baby to scream all day because it was hungry?

Man, you really don't know GOD!

Of course I do, and I wear a cross around my neck continually, with the face of JESUS etched into it. I have the Last Supper hanging on my wall, and a Nativity Scene set up all year around on the mantle piece above the fireplace. 4 of my lightshades are Cherubs....among many other Spiritually enhanced treasures.

Do I Idolise these things? Do I pray to these things? No, I Pray to GOD!
