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.

There's this guy, Counter_Strike.
You'd have a good time with him.
I read a few posts over there.

Can Counter_Strike speak English?

No , not just the right chemicals in the right amounts. But also in the correct location. THAT's the hard part.
So you believe that all these chemicals came together in an ancient primordial soup stirred by winds and tides or whatever and this was the right location in the proper amounts to create life?God you have faith in miracles! The faith of a religious zealot.

Doubtful.

Picture yourself sitting on a stadium bench with people siting next to each other. A relative equilibrium of forces emanating from each is reached, but a change in one changes the transfer down the line. Anywhere from a push to the transfer of heat. The universe is made the same way according to mainstream physics.
Each particle in each atom is locked in place by the position and state of each and every other particle in the universe. Gravity and EM are universal in their reach.
Balance two 4000 ton weights on a perfect frictionless balance beam. Then drop a feather on one of them. What is supposed to happen?
And he starts with "picture yourself".

I guess you somehow missed his flood of insults, copy and pasting the same Eric Hovind nonsense and dodging questions for days on end. Fun? All I am saying is it was funny how Derek vanishes and he appears posting as rapidly and wildly as Derek.

I could be wrong... but i don't think he is Derek. Derek is mean and floods the board with cut and paste BS from websites he doesn't even read. Mtimber is fun. I disagree with most if what he has to say but he keeps himself under control and i respect that.

Do you hate many Mac? I find that emotion a total waste of energy, and found it much easier to tackle the situation that borders on extreme emotion, take it on the chin as such, and move in whichever direction the chin takes. It always takes me away from anything that could border on dislike, and that is why I could quit my last job so easily; GOD would not want me hanging around with a woman boss that was going to suck my energy dry. Worked out perfectly, too; didn't expect a job just before Christmas, but of course, hospitality needs people in these peak hour periods, so I also got a few public holidays to boot :) Ah, yes, easy to understand why we can trust GOD when we have our trust in GOD ~ man(kind) in general, well, are man(kind) in general.

Many of us have met many years ago, through an old forum, What do you think of Jesus; God, thread. We got hassled by a lot of posters and started a couple of different threads, and finally, JW, started the one you are referring to now.

Luckily for just over 40 of us, we found FB (or FB found us) and we have taken our friendship and blossomed it into something that is prettier than a flower. We have shared deaths of loved ones amongst us, known only through forums, and we have shared deaths of our own loved ones, and deaths of our beloved pets and animals.

We have, for no other reason than our Faith in GOD and JESUS, not only found each other, we have built our Family with numbers and with genuine care. Only one member that I know of has had to be removed..... and we have been together in FB for some time now.

I hope you posters who want to make it tough for Christians stay out of that forum, it is weak at the moment and hard for newcomers to have much reason to stay. Anyway, thanks for telling others about that forum, JW started it off in a grand way, and it is still going :)

Nope.

I don't hate anybody.

Hence, no need of a deity to justify it.

Two guys walk into a bar. One looks at the other and says: "Did you see that?"

And the other guy replies: " No, I didn't"
