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.

I'm a Christian & an American and I don't fit either one of those allegations. And nobody I know dies either.
That must really save on funeral arrangements.

It's really cute how atheists feel a need to put human limitations on God.

Oh, you mean "towards who" ... well, take your pick. Muslims, atheists, gay people, black people (historically), pagans .... eventually everyone becomes a target.
No. Who, as in who are the theists you're talking about?

So then your Jesus didn't perform any miracles? Because performing miracles is "super" human.
Jesus wasn't human so He could never be superhuman.

The Nicene Creed states that Jesus was both fully human and fully God. Do you not follow it?

Your opinion based on your intolerance of atheists is meaningless. I got to the Philippines every year now with the wife and before that I went every 2-3 years. It's a beautiful place to visit and the people are being held back because of the religious zealots there.
You wish to claim I haven't been there and haven't done charity work? Prove it. Go on Daffy it will be a hoot!
And again jut because I stand up to you religious bigots on topix because of your intolerance does not make my volunteer work and donations go away no matter how much you stomp and scream with tears running down your red face.
<quoted text>
You want the respect of being believed?

Why?

You don’t believe anything a Christian post here on topix.

Why should we believe you especially since your tree brings forth corrupt and spoiled fruit.

The truth doesn’t line up on you with your exaggerated claims. A benevolent person is not going to be a raging hateful as*hole.

Matthew 7:16
King James Version (KJV)

16 . Ye shall know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes of thorns, or figs of thistles?

Luke 6:43
King James Version (KJV)

43. For a good tree bringeth not forth corrupt fruit; neither doth a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit.

<quoted text>
It's not a matter of forgiveness.
If you make a mistake in good faith and nobody is hurt, you might need to be monitored to see that such mistakes are rare for you, not common. If you make a mistake and hurt somebody, they should be compensated. If your mistake was due to gross negligence, you need to be put on a supervised probation with remedial training, or else lose your license. If you actions were criminal, you need to be prosecuted by the law.
<quoted text>
I agree that the disciplinary boards should have non-physicians on them. The people judging the performance of the physicians probably need to be specialists in the same field, but the panels deciding what to do about the bad eggs should contain a mix of interested members of the community.
<quoted text>
I don't.
The medical board isn't there to make doctors more polite.
If they abuse hospital personnel, the hospitals will deal with them, possibly with a loss or suspension of privileges. If they abuse their employees, those people can decide if the job is worth keeping.
Nurses are just one kind of health care professional that works closely with physicians. Pharmacists, X-ray techs, hospital social workers, physical therapists, and others are in the same position as nurses when it comes to evaluating physicians. They are qualified to rate physicians' professionalism, but not their technical expertise.
Hope that helps.
[Tipping hat] Thank you.

So a Christian website is a neutral reliable source? Lmfao!! Even if the info was correct, which it's not, all you are clinging to is a bandwagon logical fallacy argument. Your mom dashed this when you were 9 and she said.., if everyone else was jumping off a bridge would you do it to?
