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.

You only say that because humans are ignorant of exploring and explaining the human spirit.
No doubt someday somebody will figure out how to actually test for and verify that the Spirit actually exists.
And on that day it will become a scientific issue. Not before that.

That would be fascinating! I'd be more than happy to accept such results, once independently verified.

Would you be as willing to accept the results if it proves there is no such thing?

Dave understands the claims he puts forth. You do not.
I recall a certain claim of yours that a 10' stick could be divided into infinite segments of length greater than zero.
That's wildly wrong, and stupid, of course. Because then the stick would be infinite length, not 10'.
But you don't even understand that it is stupid.
And we won't even broach the subject again of your claim that infinite bacteria exist on earth.
Nothing is or can be infinite in space or time. Not the universe, not anything in it.
If you ever get that, then you can start to understand math and physics - maybe.
Ignorance can be infinite.

I never knew that until you and Dave came along.

How's it going, bucky?

Heh heh. Interesting article with lots of reality. There are three other parts before this one.

I had exposure to Asian and other foreign wives at an early age. My own and those of guys I served with. Some worked well. Others you could see what was happening.

I was in an outfit that had a big job going on in Korea. Hundreds of brides came back with them. There was a large segment of these women whose first English words learned, other than those dealing with currency, was lawyer and alimony after settling in.

I knew two guys in Turkey that married local women. Married, they had access to the PX and commissary. There were customs limits on Turks on what they could buy. Electronics and such. Very, very high priced on the local market. Very, very cheap and only obtainable through the PX for military personnel. Very nice profit when sold on the black market. When their tours were over and time to go home, the wives cried they couldn't leave their family. You go, leave me PX card.

Ain't love grand?

I keep asking you the same question.

Where is your proof there is “NO” God?

Since you are so sure there is no God. Share with us your proof.

Back to belief and belief systems.

The most fanatical fundies see no middle ground when it comes to their spiritual beliefs. Atheists even theists that don't believe the same as them are the same.

Topix atheist see no middle ground in their non-spiritual beliefs. If you reserve judgment on the existence of a deity, then you are one of those fanatical fundies.

No middle ground. Fierce belief in the truth of their beliefs, or non-beliefs.

You tell him, Buck.
Poly reminds me of a kid that learns brain surgery is something where you just cut and reconnect some things in school one day, then comes home real enthused and talks his little sister into being his practice piece. Hopefully he doesn't get too far before that Oh Shit! moment happens.
The boy ain't got enough experience to temper his "knowing".
Cool! You brought back you butt crack character! I was getting tired of you other puppets.

The 'subjective spiritual' aspects of humans were center stage for thousands of years and got us exactly nowhere. Without testable hypotheses and repeatable results, all you have is personal *opinion*, not actual knowledge. But you don't know the difference between the two.

Damn Poly! you have finally come to your senses, I've been telling you this about abiogenesis for some time now.

Sorry, but moderate is just another word for enabler. Theists almost always have a delusion complex, which is a dangerous thing when untreated.

That day arrived many years ago.

Several repeatable published experiments indicate phenomena that would require the re-thinking of present scientific models.

Of course, it's easier to pretend they don't exist.

It's not science till some atheist scientist says it's science.

I get that. Reminds me of the Pharisees.

Delusion complex?

Like believing real time and distance can be infinite?

My cousin believed he was a chicken.

Uncle Hazel and Aunt Viney Crick would have told him otherwise, but they said they needed the eggs.
