Atheism requires as much faith as religion?

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.

Moses didn't write squat.
The Book of Daniel wasn't even written by Daniel."

LMAO!

Again, this part:

<quoted text>You have a great deal of trouble wit both definitions, MUSICAL-------something you know absolutely nothing about, and GENIUS..........when related to music is meaningless since music is a foreign realm for you. Until you understand music on any level designating anyone a GENIUS is pointless.
I vibrate an air column the guitar vibrates a string. One is pure mechanical, no wonder you like it. The other is a HUMAN experience. Flesh against steel, breathing life into the music, feeling the vibrations inside of you, controlling the flow of air, a mush more personal experience that simply plucking a string and then relying on a non-human medium, electricity, to produce the music. Put pukebucket and myself in a room, WITHOUT power, no electricity, see who can make music. No electricity of pukebucket means NO special effects, no reverb, no gimmicks and no music.
Yes I'm sure you could listen to pukeman over and over again. Further proof that the infantile mind is easily occupied.
You have no idea what and how poetry is incorporated in to music, so stop embarrassing yourself.
Stick to your magnets and string, the more you attempt to shops how much you now about music, the more stupid you sound. Once again, your WAY out of your league here. I've forgotten more about music than you in a lifetime will ever know.
Oh, I forgot.

KNOCK KNOCK

Is anybody, or anything, in there?

Your whole damned body is chemicals. You can even ask a Topix atheist.

Electricity makes it "alive". Gravity and the nuclear forces just kind of sit there like knots on a log.

Jeez, you think you are something magical?

CPR to a baby is done through the nose AND mouth, fool.
Adam wasn't a baby, so who cares? The only fools here are the people who think Genesis describes CPR because magic breath went into the nostrils of a dirt-man and turned it into a living person.

Gen 2:21
So the Lord God caused the man to fall into a deep sleep; and while he was sleeping, he took one of the manís ribs and then closed up the place with flesh.

Look at this amazing example of God injecting Adam with anesthetic chemicals to prepare him for surgery and the detailed description of wound suturing! Such incredible medical knowledge!

There is no pulmonary resuscitation in Genesis. The passage does not resemble CPR. YOU are being dishonest.
<quoted text>
There is no mouth-to-nose resuscitation. There is no mouth mentioned at all and no resuscitation is occurring. The passage involves God turning a non-living formation of dirt into a living being (MAGIC), not reviving a living person by giving them air artificially. And certainly nothing about starting the heart.
<quoted text>
You tried to claim that Genesis mentioned "starting the heart" and "starting...blood flow". You know there is nothing like that in there. You're dishonest.
There is no CPR in the Bible.
Ok, whatever, but Iím not asking you to think outside the box. No need to argue any further. I made my point and you tried to make yours. Isnít this a great country?

You just lost your right to call yourself a free thinker.
He uses super god breath to turn a dust figure into an adult human. What part of that ISN'T magic?

The term freethinker doesn't mean you're supposed to be gullible and believe everything.

You go to a lot of trouble to make no point.
WAG4! You don't mind if I call you WAG4 do you?

The myth does predate the American Heart Association guidelines for CPR, that is true!

Jules Verne's, "De la Terre ŗ la Lune", predate the Apollo missions to the moon by 104 years!

What's your point?

The job was just a little too crazy for me. One minute your dealing with a car flipped over on a rail road track on fire, people inside and the train coming. The next minute you have two year old asking you how to do CPR on a goldfish.
I have had enough drama in my life. Someone else can do it.
No thanks! No WAG dancing for me!

If blowing air into ones nose bringing a lifeless being to life is not Pulmonary Resuscitation, then what is it called?

Please donít tell me you are from that small town in Southern Russia. Dumbshitskyville.

Aside from all the negative advertising you are doing here for religion. Donít forget that a large part of the hospital system here in the US and abroad is religious based. The Catholics and Methodist have some of the most advanced hospitals in the world. Saving thousands of lives every years.
Not to mentioned most of the religious hospitals are also research and teaching facilities. I donít know the exact number of religious hospitals versus secular but I bet itís over 50%.

Holy crap.

So many of these Topix atheist science experts think gravity, the nuclear forces, and EM come in buckets. They are used to do wondrous things that only man can do. Just pour a little here and a little there, and throw a few numbers in with them.

Totally oblivious to the fact they are made of the same damned stuff. Their wondrous selves are above that.

Oh, their wondrous selves were made from natural causes. What is natural? The existing scheme of things, Which was caused.

Is it done nose only reject? Because that is what the bible says, nostrils only and Adam was not an infant.

This is typical apologetic nonsense, take something we have or do today and try to make it fit with something in the bible. Very clumsily may I ad.
