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.

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!

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.
Thankfully as a society we have progressed beyond the musings of the bible into a more progressive, secular, humanist society.
<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.

You are demonstrably emotionally impaired, which interferes with any intellectual abilities you may possess.

But go ahead and tell us what science is.

When was that? The Bath School Bombing was committed in 1927, back when there was school prayer and everybody lived an Andy Hardy existence. It killed 38 students, more than Lanza or that Virginia Tech loser. Here's a link: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bath_School_Disa...

There's is nothing wrong with being a private person and Henry David Thoreau would agree. The need for companionship is a popular consensus among the mob, not a dictum.

Being a private person is usually a developed taste.

A lot depends on the choices of who or what to associate with.

Yes we will run with those who are able to demonstrate observable data vs people who puke out flowery speech.

Your sister meatball would approve.
