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.

Of course it does! The *composition* of life and its connection to the chemicals of the early earth is a HUGE clue to how life arose from non-living materials. The geological history limits the time scale for the transition.
Do you have the idea that life was something *added* to matter? That is simply wrong. Life is a particular *organization* of matter. Every single atom and molecule in your body is 'dead matter'. But the way it is organized makes *you* alive.
Of course it doesn't . hows that for a rebuttal.

The phrase DEAD INANIMATE MATTER doesn't make sense, and neither do you. Do you think carbon atoms are alive?

I was speaking of the bible myth god naturally as that is your imaginary friend of choice. Stop dodging the question.

Your bible clearly shows how this god you have accepted as your imaginary friend demonstrates his morals and his meals are unacceptable to say the least.

I hope you can see the illogical nature of your argument.
Which is little more than a suppression of the truth.
The sin in you, controls you, so that you cannot even reason clearly and logically and see the absurdity of your argument.

A pretty sparkly logical fallacy is still a logical fallacy. Intent does not make truth. Thank you for admitting that you use circular argument logical fallacies.

Remember the movie "Caveman" with Ringo Starr? There was a truth buried in that. That truth is cavemen would have tapped out rock beats the same as today. Or played stringed instruments the same.

But scholars would lead you to believe what we have today is a linear progression of "learning". Thousands of years before man could develop the ability to tap out La Bamba.

A myth that has existed for two thousand years and has even shaped the world you live in, and how you think.

Now, what other mythical universes do you also live in? You are worth something? You are a constructive part, and not just an annoying boil on the butt, of universal man?

Topix atheist morality.

Oh, Bible God did all of these evil things. Killed people left and right, allowed diseases, etc, etc, etc. BAAAD God!!!

I wonder if they hold themselves to the same standard. They are killing parts of themselves, and others, just to maintain their existence. If cells have your DNA in them, then they are part of you. Do Topix atheists have any compunction about letting parts of themselves die so that they can live, maintaining their existence? Or taking a shit so they feel better?

You don't get to use the word "scholars" considering you don't have any respect for academics.

A myth with you have no proof of which you continue to lie about with no shame or remorse. You're trying to sell us on a book that says with hateful ignorant prejudice that were fools and abominable.

Get a reality check you mentally ill creationist.

Nice try trying to excuse the decades of evil things that happened while you claim an all seeing and all loving god existed...

The fact is you're a liar and there is no way you can defend your fictitious virtual teddy bear.

Awwwww see Dave was that so hard to admit you are a Christian? All that nonsense about you being a deist! Laughable really.

There are older myths and to say that the Jesus myth has shaped the world I live in is pie in sky nonsense even by most theist standards.

Better luck next time gramps.

In your Christian senile mind I am sure this sounded good. To people of reason it sounds like a sheep temper tantrum.

We hold ourselves to a far superior moral standard compared to your Jewsus god.

"Scholars", of your sort, are nothing more than glorified encyclopedias. Intelligent people can use them as sources of information, but know better than to accept their spin on things. After all, they are only humans.

But you won't understand that.

Where have you ever seen me claim an "all seeing and all loving god"?

You are too emotional and lacking in the ability to think for yourself to separate fact from fantasy.
