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.

We can observe space Dave, surely you can do better.

That is anything beyond what the matter and energy we are constructed of can touch or see.
You can not touch or see space, yet it occupies most of our space. It is even within you. All you can detect is what matter isn't there. You can assume some things work though it, such as dark energy and dark matter, but you can't touch it or see it. But science says "they know its there". It has to be because their material observations don't add up with out it.
The very same thing happens with religious beliefs and spirituality.

All you're doing is misrepresenting each verse & taking it out of context.
You're displaying intellectual dishonesty.
Why?
There's that "out of context" excuse. In what "context" is the killing of innocent people morally correct?

The dishonesty comes when people make excuses for bad behavior, in any context.

That can often be avoided, well, almost always be avoided actually. Go ahead, dare you to find one case in which it cannot.
