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 think that I just want to disprove ONE ancient book? So far, the followers of Apollo haven't tried to force their religion on me, so I do not spend much time on their ancient book.
Just because the followers of your god are blowing up clinics, flying planes into building, forcing their religion into public school's science classes and shit like that, you feel picked on?
The 'real reasons of life'?
There you go! Speaking for 'everybody' again. You judge for your god, speak for everyone on the planet and you tell me that I have personal issues?
You hypocrite, first take the plank out of your own eye, and then you will see clearly to remove the speck from your brother's eye.
You are a troubled idiot.

You have about 24/7 of people trying to force you to think their way and buy their wares. I don't see you ranting against them.

I recall Rick Perry's urging fellow Texans to three days of prayer to alleviate the 2011 drought. All those people locked in prayer, pleading with god for much needed rain and they received - nothing. I wonder how many people thought this will show the world that god does indeed exist? Bet there was a lot of head scratching and doubt after that debacle.
Rick Perry, a politician, was pandering to voters. We had the chance to see him on the national stage and he washed out. Kind of like the itsy bitsy spider that went up the water spout. The rains did come and washed him all out.

Your rants remind me of the Tasmanian Devil. A whirlwind of growling, grunting, hissing, spitting and garbled words.

All we get out of it is that you’re angry.

I don't think Dave's a Muslim. You've got your religions mixed up.
Christians don't blow up buildings or clinics or force religion in public schools...
You right they spontaneously blow up.

Doesn't that mean that all the people praying were, "not real christians", too?

I do like the excuse that since we do not have the holy spirit guiding us, we cannot understand the bible; yet there are far too many opposing 'christian' sects for that to be true.
When you’re biased and try to read in the bible your own twisted demented interpretation you miss out on it’s intended meaning.

Let’s go back to the first grade so you can have a better understanding.

First grade reading book.“See Spot run!”

Now we all know “Spot” was a dog and the dog was running.

But if you were giving us the interpretation you would being telling us that “Spot,” was mustard on someone’s shirt and it was dripping downward.

This is the very reason you are not allowed to teach the First grade because you are f**ked up.

Wow! I have talked to three of your characters today! Why the privilege?

So far, you have made several inaccurate statements and hurled silly insults, whilst I have remained calm. How does that make you feel?

Faceless creator!?!? Are you forgetting that he waked with Adam and sat down with Abraham? Now if jesus had visited every group of people, you may have a leg to stand on, but he didn't and you don't.
I do like how you try to make me out to be the foolish one. LOL! Nice!
The church said that the Earth was the center of the Universe. Science said, "Nope! Nowhere near the center." Yet believers are wiser!
The church said that if a woman could not get pregnant, it was god's will. Science said, "Nope! We have ways around most problems." Yet believers are wiser!
And so on... Yet believers are wiser!
We would still be living in cave and dying of simply cured diseases and conditions.
No one has to try to make you out to be the foolish one.

You say this, and yet if it had rained during those three days of prayer, you'd be throwing your hat in the air along with hundreds of thousand of believers declaring that god answered their prayers by providing a miracle. Don't tell me you wouldn't.
Well yes, I would have but God knows the heart of men. He knows that our beloved Governor of Texas is vain. And God is not going to play the fiddle for an egotistical self centered individual pandering to the voters.

If you know the bible, it talks about prayer as being private and discourages those who walk around praying to draw attention to themselves. I question Rick Perry’s motives.

I didn’t say Rick Perry wasn’t Christian. I just think he was being a politician pandering to the voters. If you watch national weather Texas has been getting plenty of rain. It’s no longer in a drought.
