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.

Does it trouble you that its dying in the 1st World?
No, not at all. Because it isn't dying.

YOu have a tough ladder to climb. First you need to get an atheist to doubt their position. Then once they doubt you have to work them all the way up to believing that the earth is 6000 years old.
We're not f*cking stupid and we will never submit to your ridiculous cult. You are wasting your time in this forum creationist dave.
You are wrong. About the stupid, anyhow.

From your own link:
2006 Christianity: 74.8%
2031 Christianity: 64.8%
It sure is convenient when you prove yourself wrong!
Try again, sonny Jim.

Look at the "Medium growth projection for 2006 and 2031" part.

Estimated rise of 12.1%

While it takes a certain level of intellect to reject an appealing world view of life after death and a loving father figure in the sky watching over you, this does not mean that intelligent people still can't choose, due to their lack of moral character, to go with the feel good personally appealing world view over a world view guided by reason.
If Faraday was a theist then he was a hypocrite like evey other theist, holding his death denying dogma to zero standard of proof and when a scientist does this it is even more hypocritical for they know full well what proper reasoning is for they use it every day in their work.
Your use of Faraday proves how intellectually dishonest you are. It would be like me using the very bright Bernie Madoff as a means to justify stealing.
You have some serious issues about perceptions being influenced by emotion. Menopause?

Ah, poor Topix atheists, they have nothing to live for other than expressing their angst. In the most obnoxious ways, way too often.

It's really cute how atheists feel a need to put human limitations on God.
Funny how theists project their emotional states onto their god, no?

Why do you believe God is a father figure in the sky watching over you?

That's 0.0005% of the population of the the world converting. Not a very fast growth, it's slowing down in more educated locales, and increasing a lot in places like Africa. Which does not bode well for you, because a starving person will convert to any religion for a slice of bread.

You really have absolutely no idea how math works, do you? You should go back to first grade and learn math.

You have no evidence to suggest this is true.

No, it's cute how theists think that "making shit up" is a valid argument.

...yeah, because of population growth. The religion itself is dwindling.

A smaller portion of the population believes.

Is that an admission that you agree there is no evidence to suggest it's true?

And yes, I do have evidence to suggest it isn't: it conflicts with scientific knowledge. It also conflicts with all our experiences in this world in which gods never show up to be documented.

You still haven't provided us with a single reason to believe Jesus was a god or performed any of the miracles in the Bible. Why not?

Ask the people getting blown up in Israel or crying outside the wailing wall if they think they are free.

Speaking of freedom, keep the girls free!:)
