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.

When you study the core beliefs of secular humanism of moral relativity, the end justifies the means, and total lack of eternal justice. Then you begin to understand their definition of right and wrong, morals, and empathy. They are meaningless, because they believe in nothingness, based upon a dust to dust finite universe and life exists only because of instinctive behavior of avoidance of pain in a quest to survive. But ultimately, nothing really matters.

Talking to an atheist about right and wrong or evil vs. righteousness, you will find that they have no real comprehension or understanding, they only try to look for every direction and argument to make those traits meaningless.

Secular morality is by far superior to biblical morality. It was secular morality that did away with slavery, incest and child molesting all of these were common place in biblical morality.

Exactly. And yet science would have you believe that dead matter produces life, that something from nothing is a valid idea.

You atheists are a pathetic lot. Easily reduced to a quivering heap of incoherent sniveling over the mere mention of God. Chronic bellyachers, filing lawsuits under the guise of impinged civil liberties because of your delicate feelings. "Oh, but judge, but judge, I saw a cross and it filled me with fear and loathing." "The words ‘In God we Trust’ on american currency hurts my feelings." "I just can’t sleep knowing there is a manger scene at the courthouse." "The sight of the Ten Commandments makes me wet my pants." "I have to pay for the cost of therapy due to recurring nightmares about a monster God trying to get me."

We hear your rage against religion and see it for what it is, a product of your own wild imagination and insecurities.

Science does not invoke belief. It does however give explanation where none exist.

You also attribute laws made to to force adherence to the constitution, to science. this is not so either, scientist's do not deal with the law of the land, but in fact deal with natural laws that are in nature above any human law to intervene.
The notion is as silly as King Midas marching to the sea,
and commanding the tide to halt.

Wow, so the existence of people who don't believe in your deity nor follow your religion really scares you that much. Your entire rant is one strawman fallacy after another.

It must be hate or fear that drive you to lie so much about a whole group of people like that. And since your religion supposedly teaches you to not hate, it must be fear.

1) Show me *one* atom in your body that is alive. For that matter, show me *one* molecule that is alive. Yet *you* are made from these pieces of 'dead matter'. So, yes,'dead matter' can produce life.

2) Ever hear of quantum fluctuations? They are an observed phenomenon where something does, indeed, come from nothing.

No, we are simply sick and tired of religious nuts thinking they can control everything in a *secular* society. You get to play your religious games in your churches, synagogues, and at home. For that matter, you can but a *private* building and do whatever you want with it: put up crèches, crosses, and any religious symbol you feel like. Nobody is attempting to take that right away from you. I would even fight to support it.

BUT, you cannot ask the *government*, even in the guise of public schools, to promote your viewpoint. You cannot have your religious viewpoint dictated to others at *government sponsored* events. So, no, you should not be able to place the Ten Commandments inside a courthouse. You can place them in your church. You cannot have Christian prayers said at school functions. You can do that at home or in church. We have a *secular* government that cannot and should not take any stance on religious questions whatsoever. The government represents *everyone* whether they are religious or not and should keep strict neutrality in regards to anything religious. And that even includes the central question of whether deities exist.

It’s not typical for one to leave tools at a campsite. Neither is it the norm to leave pottery laying around. These type of items go with the campers when they break camp.
