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.

Didn't say there was. Slow growth is more likely. Like from a seed.
Now, how did this VERY sudden existence, what, down to less than 10^-34 second, that you believe in occur? Wow, must have really startled the human scientists witnessing that.
An invisible wizard caused it, would be your answer.
I will say IDK but have seen no evidence of invisible wizards.
Kinda circular this argument is.
So when I see one, you can say I told you so.
So to make it interesting, hold your breath till I see one.

Although if you really are seeing all that, it's fair evidence of monomania.
You are dense.

Find me one material thing that does not follow some sort of organization. One that does not obey a greater force directing it and causing it to combine or repel or stay separate.

Find me one self actuating particle, or one that can move because "it wants" to.

Oh, I won't be holding my breath for you.

You can't see it, so you deny it. Yep, Topix atheist intellect at work.

Radioactive nuclei.
Photons.(Consider your reflection in a windowpane.)

So radioactive nuclei move because they decide to? Guess they have more brains than we thought.

So, they would be the activators of life? The thingies that started assembling life?

What created them?

Good Friday is a day of mourning.
Easter is the day of celebration.
The day Jesus rose from the dead fulfilling scripture and conquering Sin.

That is what Christians celebrate. Talk about being out of touch with you own hatred.

Christians don't believe in invisible wizards. That's an atheist thing.

No, atheists believe in magical poofs that organize into form. A little smoke, and there we is.

They back engineered the smoke and figured how it formed. Hell, they can still see the smoke out there. Very scientific, eh?

No you do ......but wont admit it, this comes from the works in old testament. It is a part of your belief system. Now go read about the Davis temple mount and Moses on the mountain. Care to reiterate?

No, AGAIN.

A nucleus of a radioactive substance can remain "stable" for millions of years - or decay right now. No reason.

Aren't you tired of being wrong yet?

Atheist are the best at back engineering. Once God builds it they take it apart and clam how nature built it. Trouble is they can never put it back together and make it live again.
In other words their are great at breaking things and claiming "see no need for a God".

Radioactive nuclei are smart. Gee. Maybe even smarter than Topix atheist science experts.

Lovely scientific approach, mac. Oh! It just happens!!!

You are confused.

The smoke emanates from the Sistine Chapel during the Papal election.

Black smoke, vote taken but no Pope yet.

White smoke, WE HAVE A WINNER!!

The articulation of your confused musings and thoughts, that you have somehow typed on a keyboard, which end up displayed on my computer monitor.

No, I don't. Christians don't believe in an invisible sky wizard. That's an atheist thing.

Y'all just can't seem to fathom God in any other way than a magical human being...

Maybe they've smoked too many magical poofs and it's f_cked with their minds.

No 'decision' is made. Yes, the timing of a radioactive decay is porbabilistic. There is nothing that distinguishes a nucleus that is about to decay from any other nucleus of the same sort.
Radioactive nuclei are smart. Gee. Maybe even smarter than Topix atheist science experts.

Yes, it is a probabilistic event that happens according to the laws of quantum mechanic, which are a-causal. No 'decisions' are made, so no intelligence is implied. But radioactive decays are NOT determined. There is nothing that happens 'just before' a decay that is any different than at any other time. In that sense, they are uncaused.

Sorry if reality doesn't correspond with your intuitions.
