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.

They are who you are, not me. I don't believe in your myths, and I don't believe you.

Naw, they never say nothing to liberty about being rude. In fact, Clementia is even PM-ing him.....
Ah Well ~ the lady that was staying in my home (of the Sikh Faith) is a real lady and Christians and Sikhs get along quite OK, in India, I guess. Her language was impeccable, although she did speak Indian quite a bit and perhaps a bit loudly, but never once did I hear her swear ~ she was, I presume, the modest type :)

Are Christian's more moral and Superior in Intelligence over other races, or even Atheists, or over other religions?
Why did you pick Christian over other religions or beliefs...?
It is within me I guess ~ however, Christianity is not a Religion, more like a Faith and a following of Christ :)

I am twice Christened however, have no Church or Religion I call my own...!

<quoted text>Sorry you don't like all the meanings of Faith, but you have confident belief in something, whereas mine lies with my Creator, yours lies with science and their ideas and things. I have Faith in our Historians and Scribes, although I do believe that man(kind) has influenced some of the writings, so I read them with love in my heart, and care in my eyes. I care for the Father who gave us life to the point where I would like to make Him happy; and am happy with that path. You have Faith there is no need for Faith, thinking that your belief is only called a belief, but as you can see confident belief does equal something other than 2 words:)

Faith is ......

***faith - definition of faith by the Free Online Dictionary, Thesaurus and ...
www.thefreedictionary.com/faith
Confident belief in the truth, value, or trustworthiness of a person, idea, or thing. 2. Belief that does not rest on logical proof or material evidence****
I totally agree.
Here a post from another thread that I so do enjoy.

"Atheist sure have a hard time keeping your beliefs straight.
Yet alone just the definition of the word atheist.

Merriam - Webster

athe·ist\ˈā-thē-ist\
noun
: one who believes that there is no deity

"who believes". That's a positive assertion. Seeing as there is no proof of your belief It's FAITH.

Faith:
"Synonyms: devotion, piety, religion"

Ah yes Atheism is a Religion.

Have a nice day and don't forget to go to church.

From: The Columbus Dispatch:

Church, without God

“Stan Bradley likes Bible stories, admires Martin Luther and uses expressions such as 'heavens, no.'

The Lithopolis man is president of a local congregation and rarely misses a Sunday service. Occasionally, he goes to his wife's church instead.

For these and other reasons, Bradley considers himself religious.”

He is also an atheist.

continued:

“Like Bradley, some atheists participate in organized religion for its social and psychological benefits.”

continued:

“Churches are great places to find friends, support and youth education, so nonbelievers and believers alike join congregations to fill those needs, he said.

He has spoken to elderly and sick people who can no longer go to church and they say they most miss the feeling of community.

Recent research from Harvard University and the University of Wisconsin backs him up. It found that religious people tend to be happier than nonreligious people, not because of belief but because of the friendships found at church.”

http://www.dispatch.com/content/stories/faith...

“religious people tend to be happier than nonreligious people”[I have said this all along, and my posts are still on the board to confirm it. Now you hear it straight from the atheist, lol.]"

In fact I did not bring that up, or even know of it. But it is also a fact that those who believe in god believe there's a devil. Or the other way around, but I don't believe either of you has any sense.

The fact is that many many more have died in wars with no religious goals then have died in religious wars. This is a proven fact.
