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.

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

Presumptions, and nothing more. Blind faith is synonymous with gullible, which is actually "getting blown by the wind," without evidence you have blind faith.
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.

You're lying.

And you know it.

That's a good thing - for me. It shows that you're running our of steam....

Christians don't believe in an invisible sky wizard, that's an atheist thing.
You believe in that invisible sky wizard and you know it.
You want me to start lying like you?!

It's the substance, dude. Not the source.

"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.

Lower your ego shield a few degrees.

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.
Who is "Atheist"?

You keep doing that.
