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.

<quoted text>
Our selves are not part of the larger scheme of things. Or the smaller scheme of things. At the galactic and subatomic levels we are undetectable. So what? Over eons and nanoseconds, we don't make an impact. So what.
We exist at the scale of a few decades, and experience a few thousand square miles of the surface of a specific planet. At remote addresses and scales of existence, we don't matter. We aren't detectable. So what?
And a god wouldn't change that if it existed. Do you think that you matter more because of one? You probably matter less if there is a god.
<quoted text>
What authority?
Who is claiming authority over my life. No god has - just some churches claiming to speak for a god.
***We believe that God created the universe, the earth, and all life over billions of years. God continues to sustain the existence and functioning of the natural world, and the cosmos continues to declare the glory of God. Therefore, we reject ideologies such as Deism that claim the universe is self-sustaining, that God is no longer active in the natural world, or that God is not active in human history.
We believe that the diversity and interrelation of all life on earth are best explained by the God-ordained process of evolution with common descent. Thus, evolution is not in opposition to God, but a means by which God providentially achieves his purposes. Therefore, we reject ideologies that claim that evolution is a purposeless process or that evolution replaces God.
We believe that God created humans in biological continuity with all life on earth, but also as spiritual beings. God established a unique relationship with humanity by endowing us with his image and calling us to an elevated position within the created order.

Hey do Shock of God next or that creepy dude with a sheet of paper and a pen who draws a circle that represents all the knowledge in the universe and then wants you to use the pen to fill in the amount of knowledge we have of everything and then gasp and say but look at all that open space! Isn't it possible that god is somewhere in that?
I mean the, limited knowledge argument will just get you laughed at by people of reason but hey maybe you take requests for your future humiliation?
You were going to use this yes? Wow Isaiah 13:16 dash their infants to pieces, next rob their house and lastly rape their grieving wife crying for the loss of her infant before killing her to. Goodness that one scripture speaks volumes about your god's absolute morality yes?
In that it's absolutely barbaric.

You make your own purpose. Mine is to seek evidence. Since you present no evidence all your claims about your religion are dismissed as mythology.
Does the "evidence" in your life reflect your morality? That's what you should really be concerned about.

Scienc teaches that you can claim that anything is true if the only basis for believing it, is that nobody has proved it isn't.

<quoted text> Okay nutcase, we get it... but don't really care. I believe in God and am gay. What a hypocrisy, ey? NOT! Bob, we all know your gay, you just don't act on your sexual urges.

So you believe in gods and goddesses, ghosts and angels, gods on earth and heaven, the devil and hell, and that has something to do with sexual orientation?
What a sicko you are.

WasteWater calling Twiigs_n_b3rriez a sicko? What an honor!
I am thrilled with the attention, no matter how random. That is my only goal in life. Has been since I was a gay infant wanting my butt wiped that special way.

But YOU are the sicko WasteWater!

You pretend to support gay causes, but only the limp-wristed light-in-the-loafers boa-wearing gays.
A beautifully oiled-up body builder makes you vomit.
And any rough stuff or even sex in the fun zones makes you flat out bigoted. You are quite happy to discriminate against gays with multiple partners and lack of condoms, saying AIDS is God's way of keeping vermin down.
Sick, sick, sick sicko!

<quoted text>
What would you know of the teachings of Jesus, he wrote nothing himself. You only know how others interpret his teachings.

Jesus corrected the Jewish doctrines of the Old Testament by introducing a new system of ethics, which was disbelieved by the Jews. Jesus and Jews were not exactly best buds. Why do you think he never taught in synagogues? The first time he tried the "Pharisees went out, and held a council against him, how they might destroy him." Further, why would a Jewish God send his only begotten son to reform the Jewish hierarchy of that day? Yet this is exactly what transpired! The New Testament is the Old Testament reformed.

Your user name is interesting. Brings up an important aspect of life as a human being.

Going through life alone is something no one wants to do. People have a need for companionship.

You will never get rid of a Jesus for that reason.
