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.

Nice showing off your total lack knowledge. Do you have a clue on how clueless you really are?
That explanation is so lame I can't even laugh about it.
Apparently you can't spell about it either.

You just admitted she was buried in the ground so what's your problem schizo? You know atheists don't believe in god or the immortal soul heaven and hell so why would you even ask atheists about the state of your so called dead sister? What did you think we would say retard? That she was in heaven with Jesus? Are you seriously that stupid?

A dead girl who was buried not cremated is rotting in the ground. After all these years I would say she is a skeleton and maybe her dress might be somewhat intact. Like a Halloween decoration!:)

You're welcome.

No, my sister (Gillian, a beautiful 2 year old girl, golden hair and blue eyes, so you might get a picture of her) was burned to death by boys playing with matches. She lays buried in the ground and it was her death and grave that you were so cruelly laughing about. No need to apologise about a cremation, and of course I felt you defiled her ~ there is no way she can defend herself against your cruel words and laughter, and just because you think her Soul does not exist, does not simply wipe it away.

I love my life! I adore each and every day :) I have wonderful family and friends not to mention a heart breakingly beautiful wife.

Hey you could use your sister for Halloween! Have her excavated and carefully sanitized even save as much of the dress if possible. Then have an animatronics guy or gal string her up like a puppet and she could sing and dance for your guests or even better yet say The Lord's Prayer pr sing jesus loves the little children! They can arrange and program this. It would be amazing and heart warming for all!

This is a special Disney moment I'll let it sink in.

You are very welcome Serah!:)

<quoted text>Got something to say? Amazing intelligent posting, thank you so much for the information you have passed on, I am going off to analyse this new information and digest it as I should. What is your problem exactly? Might be better bringing it out in the open, so we know why you hate Christians (Or others who have Faith in GOD to a degree) or do you just hate life? And blame us?

Of course a retard like you doesn't know what retard means. It means slow or to impede which is exactly what belief in god does to you.

For example remember how big of a retard you made out of yourself first saying your dad was this miserable brutal atheist who forced his atheism down your throat then later saying he was this wonderful sweet man who everyone adored. And not to mention your strange story about an Arab walked into his room and thy made him a Christian for some reason.

You're just too damn retarded daffy :)

I’m touched, Lance prayed out loud. Just what did he say in this prayer since you know so much about it? Let me guess,“Dear Lord, thank you for this day and don’t let me get caught cheating.”
I see similarities in Lance that I see in many other Atheist. As I stated before narcissism and of course this double standard many Atheist live by.
By the way the word “retard” is a bit outdated. It went out of the mainstream circulation about 30 years ago. But it’s ok that you remain outdated because it tells us something about you.
I prefer you the way you are because you represent the worst in Atheist and I want people see the sarcasm, cynicism, and scornful comments. You are doing a good job pushing people away from Atheism. Keep up the good work.

People do what they are going to do. Believers just say their imaginary friend god guides them. You worship Yahweh/Jesus/Allah and delude yourself into thinking he is really there.

You keep talking about terrorists. You do realize that the terrorists are devout believers in your god right and they say he is telling them to kill people.

Wrong. God is not in control of you or your actions or your thoughts. He gave that to you so you'd have free will.
That in no way removes His omnipotence. Just because He can control you doesn't mean that He does.

Yes, again. God knows what you will do & will not prevent you from doing so. You can do X, Y, Z, LMNOP, X123c...... It's all up to you.

Hey look! It's the retard who loved the TV miniseries the langoliers! He thinks because the same actor who played Balkie the Russian cousin on perfect strangers also plays Craig the character who mentions the langoliers that langoliers therefore must be a Russian word!

It's not.

Bwahahahahahahahahahahahahahah a!

Good logic there retard! Thanks for making us laugh at you!

Poster Widereride is right as war mongeering US does torture! You smell like a Grunt... hypocrite much?
WHY YOU xTAIN fUNDIE , our AmeriKKKa sOLDIER BOYs LIED SO MUCH?

Amnesty International for World Human Right!

describing the torture suffered by Brazilians at the hands of the military and the US-run Office of Public Safety (OPS) in the 1960s

Tortures range from simple but brutal blows from a truncheon to electric shocks. Often the torture is more refined: the end of a reed is placed in the anus of a naked man hanging suspended downwards on the pau de arara [parrot's perch] and a piece of cotton soaked in petrol is lit at the other end of the reed. Pregnant women have been forced to watch their husbands being tortured. Other wives have been hung naked beside their husbands and given electric shocks on the sexual parts of their body, while subjected to the worst kind of obscenities. Children have been tortured before their parents and vice versa. The length of sessions depends upon the resistance capacity of the victims and have sometimes continued for days at a time.

Torture doesn't save lives. Torture just makes the person being tortured say or do anything to save themselves. It's well known within the intelligence community that torture is not an effective way to get valid information.
Moreover, torture just turns us as a society into something as bad as those we call our enemies. It's a perfect example of the ends not justifying the means. When our society condones things like torture, then it is no longer worthy of defending.

James Becket, American attorney, in Greece for Amnesty International

describing the torture suffered by Greeks under US-supported dictator Papdopoulos in the 1960s

"
People had been mercilessly tortured simply for being in possession of a leaflet criticizing the regime. Brutality and cruelty on one side, frustration and helplessness on the other. They were being tortured and there was nothing to be done. It was like listening to a friend who has cancer. What comfort, what wise reflection can someone who is comfortable give. Torture might last a short time, but the person will never be the same.

<quoted text>Wrong and wrong.

Something that is all-powerful is not necessarily in control of everything. Something all-powerful has the power to decline control of anything or everything.

Free will and foreknowledge are compatible. Your mistake is the fallacy of misplaced causation.

You pretend to be fluent in philosophy, but you do it poorly.
At least he does it honestly.

You should try it sometime, binky.

<quoted text>How do you like this, Silk Panty Boy?

In his inaugural speech, B. Hussein Obama characterized the struggle for freedom as moving from slavery with Lincoln, civil rights through Dr. King, to now the rights of gays to marry.

In 2008 he ran for president saying that "marriage is between one man and one woman", and opposed gay marriage.

But now portrays himself as a champion of that continual struggle for freedom, as if he's a link in the chain from Lincoln to King to now.

Does hypocrisy bother you? Did Dr. King oppose civil rights for blacks 4 years before the march in Selma Alabama?

No, Dr. King was an actual champion. Obama is an empty suit that happened to be black and articulate. The Chicago boy-hacks poured the rest into the empty vessel. The country bought it, and now we have it.

The first post-American president.
You confuse hypocrisy with growth, binky.

You should try it sometime.

Grow up, binky boy.

He said something all-powerful, "by definition", is in control of everything.

Your view of free-will and foreknowledge is simply wrong. It is the choice that determines the foreknowledge, not vice-versa. Time would not be linear to an all-knowing entity. If the choice were different, the foreknowledge would be different.
