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.

Right.

If it's not intended for children, usually that means society is ashamed of it.

Thus, my point.

What is goof enough for children is actual a universal moral standard. Sociology 101. There is a reason why evolution makes us feel "ashamed" by certain actions.

Prove it.

The burden still remains with you, an anyone that makes these claims. The dead do not have to defend themselves. You have to defend your accusations of those that cannot speak for themselves.

I am proud of the charity work I have done, are you proud of Hitler helping your bible statement about Israel returning? This is what you stated before yes? You celebrated all those innocents killed at the command of Hitler because in your words it helped return the state of Israel.
So Hitler in his own way was doing the work of your god yes?

Typical ignorance.

Christianity 101. All that is evil can only exist by an act of free will. This does not negate the power God may exercise to make something good emerge from a tragedy.

Just as family members who might lose a loved one to cancer, to make something good turn out of it by starting a new cancer-aware program.

A logical atheists would know this, and would not make this error. A rational atheists takes the time to learn the theology, before making such foolish remarks.

Why?
Absent love, there's me reason to want to fall in love.
Absent sex, there's me reason to want to have sex.
Absent beer, there's no reason to want to drunk one.
But we all do.
Okay, I know you're literate enough to know what "absent" means in the context in which I used it.
Don't be obtuse.

The obvious problem with your analogy is that love, sex, and beer all exist.
Belief in a deity is just projection, pure and simple. Every deity reflects the values of the believer, every single time. Pretty obvious.
And again, just because:

You know your deity's man-made when it hates all the same people you do.

No, it suggests that the deity in question created us.

After all, evolution also hates pretty much everything Christians do. Immoral people obsessed with petty desires are not desirable to the overall survival and expansion of the species.

Evolution doesn't hate anything, ya halfwit.

And your second sentence, well, makes no sense.

You like to use that term "we". You need to get on the stick, because your peers are going to mature and leave you behind.

People using science usually put to death by the religious leaders. Yes in that way they have been a part of each other.

I am almost at the point of really feeling sorry for you. Seriously you have no idea how ignorant you sound do you?

What happens when a seed starts to come to life? Should be the same for plants or animals. You need an energy surge to begin the process.
You and a rutabaga have a lot in common.
Become a product of a seed and look back at your very beginning. You would see much the same process.

So hitler killing all those Jews who he dubbed Christ killers was a good thing in your eyes. Just like a family member dying of cancer sparked the cancer treatment center?

This just goes why Christianity is the worst possible form of morality imaginable.
