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.

Perfect, thank you. 8 proofs for you that show those laws were for ancient Israelites, not all Christians in every day & age.
But you said that there were not laws! Now you say, "Oh yeah, they were laws, but not for us."

So the 10 commandments are not for us, so tell all your christian friends that they do not belong in public buildings.

We don't have to listen to anything that was not given directly to the christains.

Hey, maybe it is the same god!! June 5th is our holiest day; that is the day that Jet Black had a son! You know; with a name like blacklagoon, your forefather's must have known of Jet Black!

Relax, man. This is a thread, not a phone call.
A wee bit odd. Look through the last 12 hours and see if you see a pattern. I bet you don't.

Crom is a Cimmerian god from the Hyborian age.

He was an indifferent god.

He was created by Robert E. Howard.

He was killed by Howard in 1936. Bullet to the head killed them all.

because they know they can be impolite without having their skulls split,

I think you stretched your brain too much in the past doing those convolutions.
As a human being you see yourself as something special. You pay li[p service to just evolving from matter, but you really feel at the top of the heap. You are special, you can investigate and determine and pass judgments on everything else, even though you just happen to be made up of materials aligned in a certain way. You really aren't in touch with what you proclaim. You think too much for your capabilities. Gets you stuck in loops.
I see humans beings, myself included, as being constructs serving the purpose of something higher on the ladder. My ego is under much better control than yours.
As I said before, I am a technician. I recognize machinery. We are machines. Worrying and guessing about what constructed us is beyond our abilities. The environment provided for us by this higher force will determine what we do.

Do you realize that was the earliest trace of protection for slaves in legislation, and it stands in strong and favorable contrast with the old laws of Greece, Rome, and other nations?
Do you also realize that everyone except the King was considered slaves?
But you still didn't answer my question.
Why do you assume God condones beating someone to death?
ASSuME?

Why do you feel the need to explain your god or the bible when atheists have long rejected both?

Why are you threatened by people that do not share your beliefs in Gods?

I prefer the humor found in the book!h

Lo, I have given thee cow's dung for man's dung,and thou shalt prepare thy bread therewith.--Ezekiel 4:15

Wasn't that RR twirling at the end?

You look at these buffoons and if you are a believer think they are the authorities on all things scientific.

WTF does my faith in God have to do with the age of Mars?
That's a typical atheist response, you know.
"I disagree with you! You're an idiot that lets your stupid religion interfere with your reasoning!"
What's your excuse, blackie? You say those scientists have "verifiable evidence" of the age of Mars.
What friggin evidence?
Just answer THAT!
You're just not very smart are you. You can't even follow the conversation. You berated science for there BELIF that Mars was 4.6 billion years old. Although nowhere in the article I presented did they use the word believe. Hence...they "Believe" with verifiable evidence, you "believe" with NO verifiable evidence. Got it!!!!

Continually saying Atheism is a religion, really makes you look stupid. For some reason you think it irritates us. I actually find it comical that you try and put Atheists on an even scale with Theists. Its as though you are saying, "OK we believe without any evidence, we're embarrassed by that and feel real foolish that we believe in myths and magical events, but you also believe without evidence, so your in the same boat as you." Any intelligent person KNOWS that Atheists simple lack a belief, By calling us a religion, you now have to show what deity we worship and what our doctrine consists of.

BTW I have answered your question numerous times about the age of Mars, both on this thread and on others. You either can't read, or comprehend, or your just avoiding the information because you cant refute it. Either way, you look stupid, once again!!!

As usual, you missed the point.
I'm not surprised.
Take a Rover, stick in in the Sahara, take some photos, then you'll ASSUME you know all about the Earth, right?
I asked you 4 questions. Since you said you "knew all about the robot on Mars" I'd like to know exactly what you do know about the project. No sense discussing something with a person who is totally clueless. So answer the questions I asked and we can move on.

BTW I have answered your questions about the age of Mars, you refuse to acknowledge the fact that I did, or play dumb when you do answer. I think it only fair you answer my questions about what you know of the rover on Mars. There might even be two or three of them, what do you think?

Oh, and is that all the robot does it take pictures?
