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.

Polly, I understand physics pretty well. But there is a difference between your physics and mine. Yours is a study of number relationships, mine is a study of processes and interaction. Mine turns into intuition, yours is staring at a chalkboard. If the need arises for a quick fix to keep surviving, which do you think would likely survive?

Honey, you need to go back and read some of your past posts. Maybe put your glasses on upside down.
If you want to cuddle I will shave.:-)
So tell me, what has pointing out lies and deceit got to do with destroying christianity? Honey, that’s just showing up your sad personality traits, it’s not my fault that chrsitianity (and related cults) attracts so many deviants.

However if you feel you can redeem your blatent lies and link to any of my posts that attempt to destroy christianity then I challenge you to do so.

And being a testosterone overdosed chauvanist prig does not mitigate your davesworld BS. Never mind a shave, how about a bath – in bleach or better still, hydrofluoric acid?

The "Word of God", far from being inerrant, has always been a work in progress.
Interpret this RR
And I will take away mine hand, and thou shalt see my back parts: but my face shall not be seen.--Exodus 33:23
See? Out of context. If you read Exodus 33:20, you'll understand why Moses had to see God's back and not his face.

And please don't be a "tee hee hee" 5 years old and think "my back parts" means ass.
What if there is a deity and you're worshipping the wrong one?
What if?
You are a POSTER CHILD for atheism... we thank you for your unwitting support.
I'm glad you've convinced yourself that your so right.

Really?
What am I missing here?
"If any man come to me, and HATE not his father, and mother, and wife, and children, and brethren, and sisters, yea, and his own life also, he cannot be my disciple".--Luke 14:26
You are missing plenty. AND taking more scripture out of context.

What does Jesus mean when HE says to hate?

Is there a biblical dictionary somewhere?

In this context, yes there is.

In Genesis chapter 29, the story of Jacob, Rachel, and Leah. If you read, study and understand Genesis 29, you'll understand that in this context to be "hated" is to be loved less than another.

I don't expect you to understand.

You're atheist goggles are too thick.

I know how to Google, that was not the question.
How are you defining the term "dead"?
Look, I know atheists like to play with words and sometimes make up definitions as they go along. But that's not how the rest of the world works (you know, the other 99% of us).

There is no "how do I define dead", there is just the definitions of dead.

On this topic, dead means no longer living.

There's that "out of context" excuse. In what "context" is the killing of innocent people morally correct?
That depends on the context.

Can you elaborate on these innocents?

Non sequitur, but have you seen Weekly Wipe reviewing "Wonders of Life"?

Bearing in mind Charlie Brooker is a strong Brian advocate, I thought it was really funny to parody how dumb people could misinterpret his work.

Dyslexic The Genesis disease.
Facts are that people with Dyslexic have bigger brains. And most Genesis have Dyslexic.
Dyslexia - The Strange Genius Disease
Dyslexic people are intuitive, highly intelligent and creative individuals who are visual, multi-dimensional thinkers. But because they think in pictures, they have troubles when it comes to letters, numbers, symbols, and written words.
http://news.softpedia.com/news/Dyslexia-The-S...
Dyslexics have a larger brain than "normal" people. It is about 10% larger in the right hemisphere.
http://www.coulditbedyslexia.com/know.html
I don’t take sofpedia as a source but thanks anyway, It does say what I already knew, I am particularly good at what I do (3D artist and animator) because I am Dyslexic and so more spatially aware than average.

I was not diagnosed until I was 14 and prescribed tinted/prismatic glasses. The day I received them a new world opened, letters came together to make words and I began reading avidly (still do), went on to college, then uni, opened a business (with my husband) that is still small but successful and international.

I hope you have a handle on it, it can be a problem when faced with people who don’t understand. It’s the reason I am not christian, when I was a child the congregation at my church, even the minister ridiculed me. I saw the minister a couple of years ago, he tracked me down after 30 years to apologise. Nice of him really and being as cynical as I am I suppose it now helps him sleep at night.

Even today in this supposedly enlightened age there are a few people who love to mock disability, no matter what that disability is, funnily enough I still find that it’s christians (or claimed christians) who seem to get most enjoyment from displaying such disdain.

When the world and your existence really gets to you, what aches? Your head, your body, or a combo called the soul?

The "animal" keeps on surviving, but something else takes all the joy out of it. What is it that can dampen the will to live in human beings?
