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 just pay for the site upkeep and advertising, I have a firm who actually selects and posts new videos and pictures. People like to go and watch free adult entertainment streaming YouTube style to their computer or cell phone and I collect from ad revenue.
Ok I will let you get back to your favorites lost there.

LOL!

Paying for site upkeep and advertising is supporting porn ... and the real war on women.

Fess up, you hate women.

I, believe me, I would love to return to my old perverted tastes, and try and talk myself into believing that these women are empowered, and just showing us how they love what they do, and it makes them feel like a goddess.

But then I put my big boy pants on, and got a reality check. Rape is up. Objectification of women is up. Men are more piggish than ever, me being no exception until I grew up.

So fess up.

So, is it true then that you would assert that everyone that supported Christianity in its earliest days are liars and frauds?

Who were these witnesses and what did they witness?
The apostles, silly, and everyone that witnessed the event, and later put it down to paper, and wrote about it. What exactly do you think the New Testament is? It's a collection of historical records, of course.

No witnesses, no people that saw Jesus and witnessed His Resurrection, no Christianity.

There is no possible way for any of us to know how we ended up here. Religion is full of fairy tales, science is full of theories... So, in my opinion, it is futile to argue about it. Let people believe what they want if that's what makes them feel a little better about dying... Because that's what it all comes down to in the end. DEATH! The unknown! Do we continue on? Or is it really the end?! The only one's who know the answer are not here to give it to us. But in my opinion, if there were nothing after life, then life itself is meaningless. And there is a reason for everything. IDK, if this came out the way I intended(I'm half drunk)=) But if you can find any living thing on this planet that does not have a purpose, then my theory is debunked!

The problem is that you criticise givemeliberties choice not from a point of intelligence, or rationality or facts or reason.

You hate porn because you're a theist. Its that simple.

Why not just be honest about it? Like your cult tells you to be?

Just admit you are predjudiced for no other reason than the fact that you hallucinate a god and you are part of a cult of idiot's who love to judge others, while lying to each other.

It doesn't matter when it started - a cult fraud with no proof of god will always be a cult fraud with no proof of god.

Thankfully today scientist are able to stand up and make you idiots sh*t up about your claim that the earth is 6000 years old.

Before then humanity was too stupid to use it's brain save for a few clever people.

You have no proof of god, no witness to miracles and no evidence that any of it took place.

Yet you continue to lie about god and build buildings for your cult of liars.

Your cult tells us to be honest, but you can't even be honest about how fossils disprove your stories.

What hope is there for you to live successfully in a society where you can't even accept basic scientific facts?

Some porn is sick. I often see old people looking at this long haired guy in a nappy with blood coming out of his side, head, hands and feet. Really sick stuff. What if kids saw it?

I gave historical detail, friend.
What arguments did they make? I don't know, I wasn't their. For those kinds of details you'd actual have to take the time to read lot of historical material on the Church Fathers.
All claims are subject to the scientific method ... 2000 years ago. They are no longer testable, since the time is past. Thus, with historical evidence you can either accept what people back then accepted, or call them liars and prove that they lied. Or you can be a coward, and reject what they witnessed first hand, while refusing to call the liars so you avoid the burden of proof.
Those are you options.
Same holds true for ANY historical figure. If they were tried centuries ago, when who are we to call the judges and jury liars and reverse the conviction?
As for science, and the methodology, that began with the Church. The first universities began with the Church (in the West, not the whole world.) The Big Bang theory, for example, was from a Catholic priest, which was rejected mind you by the whole scientific community based only on anti-religious prejudices. Some 35 places on the moon are named for Christians.
Science did not come out of vacuum, it came from Christianity, who in turn preserved all the Greek literature they could.
Who was first to convert to Christianity? The intellectuals. First the Jews, then the Greeks, the most learned men of the ancient world at the time.
Really, this is common knowledge, my friend. There is no separation of Christianity and science, never has been, and never will be. We gave birth to it., which is fitting for a religion that claims to be the only way to God.
Or, do you just think it is a coincidence that the most advanced and scientific civilization on earth (Western Europe) and its Renaissance, Age of Reason, and Age of Enlightenment, just spawned from goo?
Christianity gave birth to science?

There has never been a seperation between science and Christianity?

BWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!

Sorry..AHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!

Oh man...and you say other people don't understand history?

Wow..

The dirty little secret is, women like to have sex and enjoy it with a capable partner. The last part hitting you a little to close to home eh?

I adore women and fight for their rights from being trampled on by Christholes.
