Atheism requires as much faith as religion?

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.

Do you know what an idol is (apart from our super stars of course LOL)
"a. An image used as an object of worship. b. A false god. 2. One that is adored, often blindly or excessively"
I do know what it means within the Hebrew and Greek definition/meaning/intent, and it includes *anything* fashioned in the shape of a plant, creature, being, living thing, or even an imaginary or fantasy character.

Some within the Abrahamic religions even go as far as to include pictures in that classification.

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.
Ever seen the move,ďThe Good, the Bad and the Ugly?Ē

Thatís title resembles the bible, it tells it like it is and was. It doesnít hid the bad and ugly. I personally accept all of it and donít pick and choose.

Don't you find it interesting that this passage indicates there are other gods besides Yahweh?
Other Gods meaning man-made Gods.

So, if we destroyed all crosses and statues of this Jesus person in a giant bonfire and laughed as they all melted, that would not cause you ill? Most christians, if you so much as spray paint on it, you're "desicrating" it.
That wouldn't bother me one bit except for those on the graves of our soldiers. Anyone messing with those crosses are going to wake up to stripped sunshine.

Yes, the cross with a statue on it is an idol.
Perhaps to some it is and others itís not.

I like most statues as art.

The art represents a story.

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

People pray to graven images..... if I was praying to my lawn, or tree, then not only would I be strange, but I suppose I would have made an idol out of them. Some pray to wooden and graven images, as I am sure you are aware!!

It would bother me if someone destroyed the white cross that is at the head of my Mum's grave site; it is all that sits there until the estate allows the release of funds for her head stone. Agree with you though ~ we have placed these crosses at our Soldier's graves or places of memories for them for a reason, other than to be burned by some nincompoop who doesn't believe they mean anything!!

Well, again, I don't see how any one can agree with it in total when it contradicts itself, both in facts and in ethics. If you accepted the entire Bible, you would be living with an inhuman amount of cognitive dissonance. Not to mention some very outdated mores. For example, do you support slavery?

Careful! Yahweh get's upset when you add to or take away from the Bible! The Bible never calls them man-made in that context.

Also, don't you find the idea that God could be jealous, and by extension insecure, an interesting passage?

Ever wonder why they stopped building pyramids? Obviously it was not because they could not stand the test of time eh?

***The Three Pyramids of Giza

They stand majestically close and yet strategically apart, surrounded by burning heat and raging sand storms for centuries. They withstood the march of time and the passage of ancient Egypt. The Three Pyramids of Giza is the epitome of human endurance,perseverance and resilience. How long will it last? Will mankind outlive the pyramids or will the pyramids outlive mankind. Your guess is as good as mine. Take care.
