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.

Why?

You are infinately more powerful than an ant. Are you resposible when they get flooded out & die when it rains? Is it your fault they're too ignorant to not make a home outdoors?

It just demonstrates how poor your morals are to us folks.
I'm sorry that you have no proof that God doesn't exist.

Stop lying and pretending that you do.

<quoted text>Ya, I got it. Just wanted to clarify that he believes in a god.

Not a true atheist, is he?

And to have a god that is a word? Strange....

Reason:

Noun
A cause, explanation, or justification for an action or event.
Wrong "reason".

Your definition would be appropriate in the sentence, "The reason for your ignorance is religion."

You said "But in our country, religion gets a free pass. It shouldn't."
That implies you want to alter the 2nd Amendment...
...do you mean the 1st Amendment?

And, no, it doesn't imply anything like that. Your reading comprehension is atrocious. My statement was clearly and undeniably about criticism.

Because it's a bad idea. Why should bad ideas go unchallenged?

I didn't say it was your fault. But some Christians DO use it to get their Christian beliefs into other people's business. That's a problem.

<quoted text>Holy Shit, you're so far out of your league and just to stupid to realize it. I fully understand how the dispassionate and machine like mind that you possess would assume that composition and music in general, was reduced down to mathematical equations. You sound completely dumb ass when you make comments like, "orchestral music requires math because of the amount of instruments involved." You have no f--king clue, too funny.
Once againJazz sounds like shit to the uneducated and musically illiterate mind. Jazz has never been, not will it ever be, the popular music of the day. The listening experience take a sense of history, and musical awareness, coupled with an appreciation for the art form. You do realize that jazz is the only art form that belong to America. You don't have the intellect for Jazz, or for any sophisticated form of music. Stick to your one Chord wonder, and leave the adult mimic to the adults.
Jazz sounds like shit because it usually is. Once in a while it comes together. Kind of like your abiogenesis.

You react so badly when someone is out of your step. Tsk.

Topix atheists have such limited perspectives. Gee, if I told one their wife was the worst piece of ass I ever had they would fly into a reactive rage and never consider the fact may be I just didn't inspire her to perform like they did. Ego does get in the way of human relations.

<quoted text>Why do you atheists always ask the stupidest questions?

That has nothing to do with the fact that you are arguing against something you claim to be a non believer of.

Why?
You keep saying we are arguing against something we don't believe exists.

You keep trying to convince yourself that we argue against god.

I'm trying to make clear to you, thoroughly that infinitely dense skull of yours that we don't argue against god. We argue against religion.

Religion exists.

God does not.

Atheist bigotry exists as well, Aero.

Don't pretend like it doesn't.

You're doing an awful lot of shouting for something you claim to have no belief in.....
I would say that you can't possibly be this stupid, but that would be a lie.

So which part of ToE has been evidenced? If there's 100 parts to ToE,.005% of them have been evidenced. Why teach it as pure fact?

I said ideas should be criticized and you accused me of wanting to overturn the Constitution.

If that isn't shit reading comprehension, I don't know what is.

Thanks for proving my point. Religion gets kid gloves.

Criticize an economic idea? Ok.
Criticize a political idea? Ok.
Criticize a scientific idea? Ok.
Criticize a practical idea?
Criticize art or media? Ok.
Criticize a religious idea? "Why are you so intollerant?"

Religion has to make itself immune to criticism because it can't hold up to any.

Ya, and? Some atheists DO use their beliefs and push them on other people. Republicans push Democrats, Democrats push Republicans.

That's a free society, baby!

If you don't like it, oh well. That's the way it is.

You can't always get your way.

Do remember to thank your god for childhood leukaemia. Despite your lies about Atheists like me, I'd hate to take the praise for everything.

HA HA HA !!!!

You really don't know what you just wrote, do you? Here, I clarify it for you:

"we don't argue against god"

---then---

"Religion exists.
God does not."

If that ain't an argue against God, what is?
