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.

Don't get all nervous. I was just telling you how to get proof of your fairies being faux. I did advise against it as I elaborated upon in the next post concerning that, and in the post about lightning.
Basically,everything has to be somewhere, and if it ain't broke, don't try fixing it. Particularly if you can't see it.
Now, you live here in a world of light. What you see and perceive as real is just a minute fraction of the volume of the universe. Matter is a foam and is spread in a web. You can't see what may lurk in the dark. BTW, this dark also comprises most of yourself. So things can travel through it undetected by your material light based self. If what we call matter can weave forms, then the other half of the system can weave forms, too. Except the other half is more like 95%. You can call it "space". It grew with the expansion of the Big Bang.
I believe you said you were in combat. Did you get in the habit of smoking near the perimeter, or under lights in camp visible from outside the perimeter. I'm sure you didn't, because you are still here. There be dangers lurking out in the dark. Even when you were in the light.
If you live only in the light, then you are naked and lovely to whatever lives in the dark. Things that may come and eat you from the inside out. They can come from all directions. Ain't no way to defend against them if they want your ass. So you need some sentries out in that dark.
Just saying.
And don't laugh.
Leave some treats for your fairies if you don't have something bigger to protect you. Avoid blood.

<quoted text>Atheists don't know how to define faith, as it requires the ability to have it to define it. You see constant attempts by them to define it to their own view on here. Their arguments based upon their definitions are hollow.

They see to see it as only a blind obedience to a way of thought dictated by a hierarchy. That is why they like to cite Hitchens and other leaders of the atheist movement, and claim science supports their views. All without the ability to question their own blind faith, as instilled by their leaders.

The only freethinking exhibited by these Topix atheists is the little badge issued to them by the movement saying I'm a freethinker. It came with the list of talking points and hymn book of favorite anti-gospel rants.

Sorry, faith is an anchor or fulcrum to work from. If you don't have it you just get blown by the wind. True, it can be misguided and fail, but then again it also works for some. The ambitions have faith, that why they get somewhere. Gamblers do to. A few of them get there.
Faith covers a lot of territory. You need a certain amoun tin yourslef to even survive. Faith in something looking out for you helps that faith in yourself.
Sure beats being a neurotic liberal nervous wreck.:-)
Presumptions, and nothing more. Blind faith is synonymous with gullible, which is actually "getting blown by the wind," without evidence you have blind faith.

Lent is approx. six weeks of religious observance for dubious Christians attempting to atone for their sins by eating fish sandwiches.

Hebrews defines faith as “the assurance of things hoped for, the conviction of things not seen” Hebrews 11:1

"Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen."

The fact is that everybody has faith of sorts.

Evolutionists have faith in their version of origins, subway passengers trust a train driver’s skills, and children believe they’ll get gifts at Christmas.

All of us are relying on something unseen.

Yawn you constantly use Fox News links not to mention conservative wiki and you quote all their silly arguments word for word.

And you know it.

You believe in the invisible sky wizard Yahweh/Jesus so stop lying. You believe in that invisible sky wizard and you know it.

Man up for once. Just once.

Atheists know that God is REAL. But they don't want to give up their sins in exchange for the Lord's holiness.

Why should anyone care what he book of Hebrews says anymore than the stories of Perseus?

They're all ancient myths except Perseus hasn't been rewritten and changed as many times :)

That sounds very hypercritical and arrogant Dave.
Wouldn't it be better to recognize and learn from your own mistakes?
But yes to learn (anything) is a plus.

That isn't evolutionary though, that's just wisdom.
What I learn many times from others is...
No matter how bad it is for me , at times of bad times.
Someone else has it worse.

Interesting paper on the solar wind, magnetic fields and things. Powerpoint presentation.

Understand there is a constant stream of charged particles and magnetic fields from the sun to here. Charged particles are plasmas, very electrical and magnetic oriented. There is a fixed grip on our magnetic field. Modified by variations in the fixed current and CME's. We are very tied to the sun by more than gravity.

Get some magnets and string and play with them. Remember good ol' EM induction.
