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.

That's where your little theory blows chunks.
No. The theory of evolution stands on it's own. The logical extension of the theory leads one to consider common ancestor.

Bullshit.

If that were true, you atheists wouldn't spend so much time arguing with theists and arguing about religion and arguing whether or not God is real.

If you really truly didn't care, you wouldn't be here.

We wonder if you atheists spend so much time arguing whether or not the Loch Ness monster is real.

If the all powerful being was decent, it would.

If it was cuntish or didn't exist, then all bets are off.

I think I've just paraphrased Epicurus.

There goes that magic thing again.
Your whole "truth" and "prudence" is the acceptance of dreams as reality.
Show us life made totally from raw chemicals either naturally or in the lab.
A supernatural entity creating man from a lump of clay is magic, poorly written magic at that.

That is, unless you have real verifiable proof of this event. Not speculation and wild hand waving, but independently verifiable evidence?

No? Okay ... magic.

Agreed- because of evidence.

According to Professor Brian Cox's latest programmes, the chance that we came from "multiple common ancestors" (for wont of a better term) is around 1 in 10 to the 40th power.

Do you realize how much you are just repeating buzzwords and not really thinking?

BTW, if and when man does create life from raw chemicals, then you lose.

If we can create it by design, then something could have created us. Simple as that.

As far as abiogenesis is concerned, we have a long way to go to say there is a high level of confidence in any particular working hypothesis, but every working hypothesis has a thousand percent more evidence that any supernatural magic explanation, since magic has 0 available evidence.
Would you change your tune if some scientists or group of scientists came up with a way to test for the supernatural and discovered that it is in fact real?

Would you change your mind if some sort of "God test" implied that God is real?

I, for one, would. But I don't expect that there will be any testable hypotheses for a supernatural nor any evidence for a deity.

Then you are not a freethinker.

Centuries ago, someone like you would probably sit there and say "humans will never fly, that's impossible!".

No, the point is that some things are cohesive, even things you wouldn't expect - like gas & fire, science & religion.

If you weren't such a blockhead, you'd understand that.

Not really RR

We find theists extremely delusional and highly entertaining. We know you feel Jesus with you as you type. Yes... Your obsession shows! And a good 'straight man' is hard to find

God bots seem to find atheists irresistible. Why?

We ignore all that most theists believe, yet find their self inflicted mental illness, oddly fascinating, worthy of satire and critical skepticism.

Jesus walks into a hotel, throws three nails on the counter and says "can you put me up for the night"

Segway to...

Jesus and Moses were strolling by the Red Sea, when Moses nudged Jesus and said, "Psst. Hey, Jesus, I've still got it."

Moses turned towards the Red Sea and lifted his staff on high. The angels began to sing, the gentle sea breeze turned into a raging gale, and the waters of the Red Sea were parted. Moses lowered his arms and, with a smug grin on his face, turned back to face Jesus.

Jesus scoffed. "Moses, my boy," said the Messiah, "I have still got it." And with a flourish of his robes, Jesus stepped onto the waters of the Red Sea and began to stride across without so much as a ripple.

But to Moses' amazement, halfway across the water, Jesus suddenly began to sink. He splashed into the water and began to choke and flounder as the waves tossed him around. Moses grumbled at Jesus' sillyness and parted the water once more. Moses helped Jesus back to shore, as the Saviour hacked up salt water.

When they had finally reached shore, Moses slapped a consoling hand on Jesus' shoulder and said, "Don't worry about it, Lord. Last time you tried it, you didn't have holes in your feet."

;)
