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.

True. But their non beliefs are only concerning God. I can sit here and write that I believe in leprechauns, I think Casper was really a friendly ghost, he wasn't evil-he was friendly. They wouldn't argue either of those at all.
That's what these atheists here don't realize that the only thing they're "skeptical" on is God.
When somebody advocates putting the Ten Commandments of Casper in a school or government building, I'll be all over them. So far, it hasn't been a big problem.

It doesn't matter what an AMerican's religion - or lack thereof - is, we're all Americans and all out for very similar goals.

Stop trying to divide us.

It's a shame you don't see that.
You're the blind one.

That post is proof of that.

That kind of thinking helps atheists feel better about their beliefs.
....er, um... non-beliefs.
Oh, you guy(s) got us! Atheism is a religion. We have faith that there is no god. You guy(s) are so smart.

Nope, that was the conversation.
You can see at each step what the comment was that the reply was addressed to and it goes step by step.
If you'd care to find any side comment that fits into this discussion, please cite your reference.
You are a bunch of discombubulated in your logic, or whatever it is. Plues, the burden of proof is really not on me. It is on those that claim life can come from raw chemicals. If it didn't, then the default is it was created by something, just like our experience with matter. We can shape and transform it. It doesn't do it all by itself. They will at least have to create conditions that existed at the time, and get at least a spark. No maybe could haves.

If itís someone masquerading as a Christian then itís horrendous. This is why they never mention these Atheist Leaders you mentioned. Theyíre ok with it.

Evolution doesn't even address abiogenesis, but you've already been told this a thousand times, so I don't expect you'll ever get it.

HA HA HA!!!!

Can you explain how the human eye could've randomly evolved from a single celled organism.

Yes it does. I've showed you that a hundred times...

Oh boy.... Didn't you JUST ridicule ID as being only a hypothesis? And now you defend abiogenesis as if its fact?!

The proof Atheist need can be found ďIn the beginning.Ē

Thatís the mystery that you need to resolve. Itís not in the theory of evolution but how everything started.

Self starting and self creation of life in the beginning is not possible. The reason I say that it has never been done by scientist, ever. It has not occurred on Mars.

This Earth is so unique we have founding nothing like it in the solar system that is remotely close to where we live. Scientist donít have a clue if there is life elsewhere.

I tend to believe there is life elsewhere but like the Earth they had a designer or life architect. The bible does talk of a new heaven and a new Earth.

They could be, but they're not.
As long as idiots like you and buck and Dave refuse to acknowledge the existing evidence of evolution, religion will remain the enemy of science.
Eh?

I acknowledge the *existing* evidence of evolution. But it's so full of holes, patches & guesswork, we can't call ToE fact.

It is a fact life organic life forms can evolve.

It is not fact that all organic life has evolved from a single common ancestor (or even multiple common ancestors).

That's the bullshit you've been fed, digested, but haven't shut back out yet. You'd just live it if people like Buck, Dave & I would just follow along & play sheep with you mindless morons.

Do NOT call yourself a freethinker, Aero.

When Casper helps to form the most powerful, happiest & prosperous country in history - then you might just enjoy the Casper Commandments every now & then....

Sounds like evolution's theory is dependant on the origin of life...
Life being on this planet is dependent on the origin of life. Duh. The question is, was it through biochemical interactions or supernatural magic.

You are no skeptic. You are no free-thinker. You're indoctrinated.
I didn't say we would. I asked what your reaction would be. So, show us you have such an open mind. What would your reaction be assuming we actually did find clear evidence that there has been life on Mars?

I'm an optimist.

You're apparently a pessimist.

I like to believe that Americans are indivisible. We are ONE nation, ONE people & most of us have the same goal in life - to be happy, healthy & worry free.

But go on, keep fighting the good fight to separate us as much as you can.

Be a good little sheep atheist.
