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.

You see, the atheist cannot account for absolute truth.
He can only deny it, whilst appealing to it.
All the time demanding that it go unchallenged and be accepted.
Yet without absolute truth, the atheist cannot make any argument, because they have no foundation upon which to base an atheistic argument.
Totally intellectually bankrupt, yet claiming intellectual superiority...
What is absolute truth?

Are you seriously this stupid? I mean wow I know you think historians aren't scholars and that Catholics don't believe in Jesus but seriously?

The fact that there are people that do not believe in god is proof for atheism. You don't believe in Allah so to a Muslim you are an atheist.

Seriously man you really need to think before posting. Your stupidity is painful to watch.

Because I said so.
Actually, they would twist it off.

Though their jaws are tremendously strong, they probably wouldn't be able to bite an arm clean off. Alligators and crocodiles remove meat and body parts by twisting. They grab on and start rolling until and edible sized chunk is torn off.

Just sayin'.

A little observation on egos, notably the over developed kind.
It is like driving down a dark highway with your brights on. You can only see what your light shines on.
Education and other such training makes those lights brighter. It also make it harder to see the dark on the side. Your eyes adjust for that extra brightness.
You miss a lot, and assume a lot.
You get an educated and civilized person going into a more primitive, or educated and civilized in a different way, and they can develop a tendency to assume a higher station in life to these poor unfortunates that weren't educated their way.
Of course, they assume the locals can see such as a given. However, they have been doing pretty well their way for generations.
Some of them are nice and gracious by their customs. Others are eager to see what wealth they can get out them. They both smile. Up to a point anyhow. The problems come when the egos try to revamp the system they invaded.
It is very hard for a superego to see the world for what it is. It is even harder to see what lies beyond it. Anything they see will have to fit into their headlights.
It sure beats driving in the dark without any lights.

Your belief in science is a substitute. It is an opiate. Science is OK, it is the scientists you have to question.
You will love this one.

I don't listen to pukebucket for the same reason I don't go to an art museum looking for paint by numbers exhibits. 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!!!!!!

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.

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.

I have evidence that God is real.

I can't demonstrate that evidence to you.

But that doesn't negate the evidence.

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.

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.

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.
