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 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.

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.”

“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.]"
Ahhh ~ straight from the Atheists mouth!!

Thanks for sharing :)

So Lance did something bad.... He must be an atheist!:sigh: Get a clue retard! The closest he has ever come to that is saying he had a distrust of organized religion because of corruption. He has never claimed to be a non believer in god though and has even went in cancer hope tours with various church people and held hands wiping tears and sharing/ leading in prayer with cancer victims.

Get a grip retard! It's rather childish that you want to dun anyone who has done something bad an atheist.

I think Lance could have a great future ahead of him but its not in sports but in Jesus Christ's @sshole.

Take your pills schizo and after that and 28 more stays in the looney bin like you stayed before then maybe you will see how stupid it is to worship a retarded zombie Jew with no historical evidence like Jesus.

Those voices in your head are not angels ok? Now get your crazy on!

What's to know about your retarded religion? You have stupid people praying to a zombie Jew who acted like a retard at the temple and got himself all crucified. Then like damn near all the Hellenistic gods, born of a virgin, child prodigy, performing miracles etc etc he rose from the dead performed some last miracles are ascended into heaven. Well according to myth anyways it happened that way. No wonder Jesus is a retarded god!

Perseus and Hercules from 500 years earlier did it better though and we actually have much more historical proof for Hercules than Jesus.

In our brief lifespan, we are free to make our own purpose. Most people throw that choice away by hoping for something eternal. For my way of thinking, it is silly to find a higher purpose in floating around "somewhere up there" with nothing to do for ever and ever, veging out or singing songs or just sitting there playing with their spirit navel.
Life is here now. It is often a struggle, and sometimes downright delicious. That is a grand enough purpose for me.
Life is a beetch and then you die...all your struggle of no consequence. why bother? You may as will spend your life as a couch potato for all living is worth by your estimation.

Yahweh/Jesus is scared of iron chariots and is so retarded he thinks you can build a tower going into his living room.

If you are going to threaten me with a deity could you at least chose a semi-intelligent one?

"that we here highly resolve that these dead shall not have died in vainthat this nation, under God, shall have a new birth of freedom"
--Abraham Lincoln, 19NOV1863
In 1951, the Knights of Columbus, the world's largest Catholic fraternal service organization, began including the words "under God" in the Pledge of Allegiance. In 1952 they adopted a resolution urging that the change be made universal and copies of this resolution were sent to the President, the Vice President and the Speaker of the House.

The phrase "under God" was incorporated into the Pledge of Allegiance June 14, 1954, by a Joint Resolution of Congress.
