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. Full Story

There was an interesting aspect of the old days and its litter that was kinda beneficial.

Soda bottle deposits. Millions of kids were kept in gum, candy, and other little things from those wonderful little neighborhood stores by picking them up.

Had one of those stores on the way to school. The original owners sold it to a guy that built an addition to it. A couple of years later it was raided. The addition was a gambling den hidden behind a false wall.

People never change.

We had this large military surplus store across the street from the grade school I went to. Back in the 50's this was a little boy's dream. Every so often they would discard things from their inventory and throw it on a truck parked out back. After school you would have dozens of boys in the back of the truck scavenging for treasures. Old helmets, haversacks, miscellaneous and sundry items from the military. Oh, the treasures carried home.

No one from the store interfered. They would watch with amusement. Now they wouldn't let you on the property because of insurance liability.

That place eventually got bought and was turned into the Yahweh Temple. Black Jews. The true Jews who would reclaim the religion from the evil white man. Led by Yahweh Ben Yahweh. With armed guards on the roof. He eventually wound up in jail.

What a place. I drove by a few times and they would hand out their newspaper, which was not white man friendly, from the corner to me. Funny as hell. Some black dude full of the fire handing a white man a newspaper calling for the elimination of the white man. with a gun sitting on the seat in view. We would smile at each other and wish each other a good day.

Sorry that you have no proof of god. maybe one day when you grow up you will discover morals and realise that lying is not a good way to live. You may also realise why atheists don't believe a word you have to say.

I will leave you to continue whining at the fact that you have no proof of god.

Meanwhile you can easily go and get a DNA test which proves you are descended like all of us from a common ancestor to apes. But this fact of life is too difficult for you to comprehend or accept, because you are arrogant and willfully ignorant.

Atheists can whine and cry and predict the death of religion, but that is the religion of the future.

The reason is soul. Not dogma or organization, but expressions of the individual spirit.

The difference between listening to some math based music from a full symphony, some guy tooting his own horn, or listening to someone like Buckethead, or others that bring the rhythm and emotions in you.

I think modern youngins don't want atheists or hierarchal theists telling them what and how to think.

Jesus is the face of this personal expression. An undefined and personal relationship with the Creator. Just like the message he delivered. Happy to be alive.

To sacrifice the few for the many is to be amoral.

The current amoral scientific belief system is bound to produce destructive action, that is, the attitudes of scientists lead them to be less careful of life than they should be. They separate themselves form the natural world by viewing all life as objects to be examined. They view human life the same way, casting man adrift as meaningless biological debris. This intent automatically alienates the scientist from his own spiritual nature and turns him into a mechanic.

Rational thought is relative, hence the omission.

I already know that, Septic.

Maybe one day you'll realize that theists don't give a crap what atheists have to say.

I know we're descended from apes.
