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.

Buckethead doesn't strain. Better definition of notes to my old ears. You can really notice it on good equipment. Being over six and half foot with long slender hands gives him an edge, too. He does that all with a bucket on his head and an uncomfortable mask.

My hands cramp just watching those guys. BTW, did you notice how he seemed to get stronger at the end of that 20 minute Look up There?

Bucket can shred with the best of them if you like that style, plus a variety of other styles. Jazz and New Age.

He is the guitar Jesus with the hands of God.

I said only a soulless Topix atheist could deny it. Sure enough, they started.

They are going to Hell.

Don't fret yourself. You will get the religion before the trumpets sound. Your base is good, but your picking of choirs to sing with will ring false to you as the crescendo of your life approaches.

Or something like that.

Tell me oh arrogant creationist, what right do you have to judge other people's lives? And don't give me the crape about your no proof god doing the judging. It's you. Take some responsibility for your ridiculous beliefs for once in your life.

Atheists are the opposite of Theists instead of faith we look to facts and the real world. So no it requires NO faith at all .....

This too simple for the determined dogma slave to comprehend. Nice try. ;)

Theists insist on becoming immortal. LQTM

"Faith is believing something you know ain't true." - Mark Twain

"The way to see by faith is to shut the eye of reason." - Benjamin Franklin

"And if there were a God, I think it very unlikely that He would have such an uneasy vanity as to be offended by those who doubt His existence." - Bertrand Russell

"Creationists make it sound like a 'theory' is something you dreamt up after being drunk all night." - Isaac Asamov

"Gods are fragile things; they may be killed by a whiff of science or a dose of common sense."
-- Chapman Cohen

"The good part of Christmas is not always Christian -- it is generally Pagan; that is to say, human, natural." - Robert G. Ingersoll

A reformed Christian, eh? LOL! No need for long rambling comments when the truth is obvious. Since atheists believe they came from nothing, they ARE nothing and therefore have nothing of value to offer.
An ex Christian! Who woulda thunk?
Amazing Atheism, how sweet the sound,
That saved a wretch like me....
I once was lost but now am found,
Was blind, and STILL can't see!
LMAO!
Agnostics, as a general rule are quite reasonable, rational, and willing to change their views and perceptions IF they feel it is justified. Agnostics don't condemn anyone to hell or label them as "unsaved" for not holding the same views as they do.

Despite all the rhetoric of fundamentalist Christians that "unbelievers" are shallow, self centered, prideful, selfish worshippers of nothing but themselves, and deceived by their own minds, there exists an almost comical paradox:

Christians engage in just as much self gratification and self exaltation as they say unbelievers practice.
Christians create two objects, themselves and the object of their worship.
Thus is both vanity and idolatry. When a Christian praises the object of his worship, his "God", he is really praising his ideas and views about the object of his worship.

The centerpiece of this religion, the Bible, means whatever a believer wants it to mean…and nothing more.

Nice sales job but the goods your selling is tainted.
My observations tell me that Atheism brings to a large portion bitterness, anger, mood swings, hostilities, sadness, spitefulness, oppression, depression, belligerency, atrociousness, close mindedness, hatefulness, twisting of facts, mendacious, bigotry and unhappiness to name a few.
There seems to be this raging inferno that burns so hot in some Atheist that the only peace they get on earth is to condemn people of faith. Where is all this freedom your talking about? They don’t seem to have any peace. Why be so miserable? But I’m telling by reading these threads that’s what’s being displayed.
Who in the hell wants to live like some of you Atheist? You are freaking miserable. Like a horse with a broken leg. It would be different if Atheist were happy and peaceful people but we see something different.

Lets put that to the test.
Name me a moral action towards another human being that can only be done by person of faith. I think you can't
Now let me name a moral action towards another human being that can only be done by person with out faith. I can't apart from maybe
the denial of faith but this isn't common ground between us.
Name me a evil action towards another human being that can only be done by person with out faith. Again you can’t
Now let's both of us name a evil action towards another human being that can only be done by person of faith. The suicide bombers are entirely religious, childhood circumcision (or perhaps more appropriately genital mutilation) is entirely religious I’m sure we can think of many more.
If Atheism realy brings a large portion of evil our answers would not be the same as the above.

Golly, but I just can't read this without thinking just how happy and fulfilled you are in your religion.
