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.

The 80% figure is just my council. Others landfill more, but all are improving as landfill costs will increase to a peak in 2014.
Once filled, sometimes 200+ feet deep, we can reclaim the landfill as parkland. There is an impermeable layer of clay or plastic separating the parkland from the waste. Meanwhile, the methane created by the waste is extracted, meeting ~3% of the UK's energy needs.
Germany landfills just 7% of their waste, but they incinerate 35% of their waste in order to achieve this 7% figure.

Thank you, itÂ’s a interesting subject since your land has been occupied for centuries.

Heh heh.

Atheists have lots of faith. They have faith they will die and totally cease to be when the body dies.

No fear of being naked and all alone in a new realm, not a clue about what exists in it.

Their only "proof" they have is someone else died and disappeared. Grandma died and didn't get in touch with them.

Maybe Grandma got eaten after she left.

You don't know until you get there yourself.

They be tough. They don't need no help. They got their fellow live compadres. Here.

Big universe. All alone if you are wrong. Maybe for eternity. Nowhere to go.

Look up at the night sky. Put yourself way out there. All alone.

But they have their faith to get them through this life. Even if it turns out to be wrong,

<quoted text>Why would Atheist want to bring children into this religious world?

Then when you consider that the secular hospitals are overcrowded and long waits. An Atheist would end up going to one of the fine up to date Christian Hospitals. And Christians would be delivering and handling the baby.

How awful for Atheist. Having a baby delivered in a Christian Hospital and the baby coming in contact with Christian Staff. They might even do something like pray for the baby.
What's wrong with you?

So if I have faith in pulling a threesome with the Olsen sisters, something I very much hope for, Hebrews 11:1 assures me it's a done deal? Hell, count me in the flock...
That's the neat thing. If you have assurance and confidence that you'll one day bone the Olson twins (????) at the same time, you'll likely find a way to make it happen.

Do it, bro. But take pics, please!

Goodnight, everyone.

Remember that last breath you took can always be your last one. A damned meteor can hit you in the head.

Then you ain't got no time to stop and think anymore. You done arrived at the end of the line.

You had a NDE. You quite obviously didn't cross over and return. Why do you continue to use it as an absolute reference?

No, I wouldn't mind if the nurse prays.

So long as it doesn't interfere with doing a good job with her medical responsibility.

You haven't posted from Fox News and conservative websites? You have and you know it.

You do believe in Jesus the invisible sky wizard and you know it.

I have factually crushed you dozens of times and you know it.

Like when you said Catholics are not Christian?lmfao!

Wow that had nothing to do with anything I said. Again, why should we care about what the mythological book of Hebrews says anymore than we care about stories of Perseus?

"Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen."
Don't agree?
You've probably seen me write "Absence of evidence is not evidence of absence". A smart phrase, from your precious Carl Sagan.

Jesus isn't an invisible sky wizard, how many times must I tell you that is an atheist belief?

LMAO! Are we in 300 now?

Why don't you ask a Catholic if they call themselves a Christian, then get back to me.

You really are one dense sumbitch.

You can't understand "substance, not source"?

They kinda look like Hanson, back in the day. That's gross.

Just saying.

If you want twins, and your faith allows you to have it, well here....
