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.

I've done that at 70 mph on 2 lane roads with a canal and ditch on either side. For several miles.

Not habitually, though.

My tastes as well as my expectations have evolved, I can see your still stuck in the Neanderthal error of music. I seek excellence and realize that complexity often equates to beauty. Now...after me....row row row your boat, gently down the stream..........Your in here. I sang the first how many measures, and in what time signature? I'll bet even a simple children's song eludes you.
Why is it you never respond to simple questions? I'll try again, What deity do I worship if science is my religion? Don't make shit up now like you usually do. Show me were science states that
"everything is perfect and nice and stable." Go for it!!!!!!
Your quest for complexity creates your own little universe. It can result in your universe being a small room with rounded scissors for cutting out paper dolls to share it with.

Evidence:

Noun

The available body of facts or information indicating whether a belief or proposition is true or valid.

I have evidence that God is real.

I can't demonstrate that evidence to you.

But that doesn't negate the evidence.

THe burden of proof is on your shoudlers....
You make the argument that there is a god. The burden of proof is on your shoulders.
Why? You're under the assumption that I give a shit whether or not you believe me....
We have no proof for these gods hence there is no logical reason to believe for rational people.
"We" being ignorant atheists?

Sure.
I know you guys hate the burden of proof but it is what it is.
So prove I'm retarded. You make the claim damn near every post.

Prove I'm from Riverside.

The onus is on you, asshole.
Provide some proof and I will happily consider it.
What?!? Proof is something you still would have to consider?!? Proof is not up for debate, f_cktard.
Until then live your comforting delusion, it's fine with me.
I suffer no delusion.
Just don't expect your betters to join in it.
"betters"?!?

LMAO, oh ya..... The typical atheistic ego that tells them they're smarter because they rely on "proof"...

Except you still need to consider proof....

Shut that c0ck holster you call a mouth, boy.

There it is, folks.

Thanks, idiot.

Everyone knows I had an NDE, right?

I posted this a long time ago, but will repeat.

Being just a simple ordinary human like most people, the experience did have a rather profound psychiatric impact on me. But one of them was really strange, and occurred very soon after.

A profound sympathy for an omniscient and omnipotent deity. I mean more sympathy than I could have for myself.

Perhaps it was the being parked in eternity for a while, but the experience really brought home just how stark raving mad such an entity could get if it didn't have something to do or something to interact with. Something unpredictable would be absolutely the cat's pajamas. Such an achievement would also be quite the genius effort for such an all powerful entity.

The Supreme Being wants its creations to grow up so it can have something to talk to.

Sorry but figment of your imagination doesn't count as evidence.

You made the assertion there is a god, it is your argument hence the burden of proof is on your shoulders. Just keep it in the home and church and out of the public square and government and I could care less what sky wizard delusion you imagine.

It's good that you don't care about being a miserable failure in debate. Ignorance is bliss they say and if so you must be very blissful.

We as in everyone including you can produce any observable evidence for any god. That being said it looks more likely than not it is just a work of fiction.

Your childish temper tantrums prove how your faith has retarded you. I never claimed you were from riverside so the onus is not on me. Sorry that was really stupid on your part. Surely you can better?

Yes smart people who are your intellectual betters require proof to consider before believing in monsters under the bed, the kraken or god amongst other silliness.

See humanity created all gods. They did this as a comfort measure for when they were alone, or dying, or awestruck. Most importantly thy created god to control others and answer what they couldn't understand. But humanity is growing up now no stopping it. And the time has come for more and more of us to put away childish things.

Possession of such is assumed for the female species of human material construction. In the genetic blueprints or something.
You claim to be a woman, and claimed to be a girl.
Actually, no, many have them removed due to medical issues. If that is your only qualification for being female, then you are at least admitting that all transgendered who get surgery are female.

Thus you are insulting a large portion of the female population while accepting the transgendered people for what they claim to be, ultimately being a hypocrite.

My accountant said you were a great asset, he said if I adopt you I would get a huge tax break and be able to claim for all sorts of things.
