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.

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 :)

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.

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.

That's a good thing - for me. It shows that you're running our of steam....
You believe in the invisible sky wizard Yahweh/Jesus so stop lying.
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.

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.

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...

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.

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,

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!
