Full story: Webbunny tumblelog

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.

And why do you suppose atheists in the west focus on the Abraham religions so much?
Because they have emotional issues?

I wish Topix had an edit feature.
A program to weed out meme bots before allowing to post would also be nice.

That way we could save Topix atheism forum space.

Well, first of all, providing you with an example is not critical thinking, so that right there suggests you don't know what critical thinking skills are. But aside from that, let's take just one example: prayer in public schools.
When the majority wanted prayer in schools and the majority of kids prayed anyway, prayer in schools was not religion promoting itself...

Because they're trying to find God but don't know where to look. Had prayer stayed in schools, you'd know this.

Poor loony. Standing in the park serenading the squirrels while everyone else is listening to Buckethead on the other end.
Be sure to keep enough peanuts in your pocket to attract an audience.:-)
Played last Satuday to a packed house, all young people, they loved the music, swing/Jazz.

Had a premier of one of my compositions last night, about 200 in attendance, seemed to enjoy the piece very much.

Funny, not one of those hundreds of people were listening to pukebucket, all listening to me and the people I was playing with. I didn't see any squirrels either, so I had no need of nuts. But I do thank you for your concern, now you should probably go back to your children's music!!!!

Some of this is a side effect of talking down to your level.

The Creature from the Black Lagoon.
A form arising in the mud from a distant song. To collapse after the last note is played.
Did that form pass on the music correctly? Is it a keeper song? Does it have future potential in a larger ensemble?
Only the composer knows.
I don't write "songs" arrangements or extended works, not that you would understand the difference. Being illiterate in any subject is kind of sad, especially when you pretend to know.

Freedom of religion is a principle that supports the freedom of an individual or community, in public or private, to manifest religion or belief in teaching, practice, worship, and observance.

We even have a statue for our freedom in our "secular" capital...

Tsk.

Such limited perspective. So much you have to pull your intellect out of that informational packet they gave you.

Can't think past the strictly literal.

Loony, a suggestion for you to expand your mind. This is sincere, and will open up perspectives you didn't know existed.

Instead of just thinking you are a god, try imagining actually being one and how you would do things then. The universe is your orchestra, and they ain't all the best players possible, but you are stuck with them.

No poofing allowed.

Even Jehovah had to work until he got tired. In the beginning.

You might gain a little sympathy for the conductor.

Off to get glasses.

Right.
Common sense and intuition should tell you that intelligent design exists because you use it everyday. We all do.
From a wristwatch to a battleship to a skyscraper, humans employ intelligent design all the time.
But when it comes to something as complex as the universe, earth, humans, and all life - nope, you can't imagine that.
Must be by accident.
Creator maybe?

Designer?

God?

Dude!!
