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.

This existence is the interaction of spirits. It is a playground, a break from doing nothing for eternity. There is good and bad in it, but it is better than nothing.
The mass media dehumanizes the living experience. It turns existence into a formula you are supposed to follow. No real individuality, and this formula is determined by a few. Who make money off of it. No one expends the money required to produce such things unless there is reward in it for them. It isn't, or wasn't before the pros got into it, a grand conspiracy, but just the way things worked out. It is being taken advantage of now by those with the axes to grind. The internet is the last great hope to keep humans from becoming a machine of just existing to serve the few..
I don't watch much TV, but the internet is probably a very good alternative. I would pick it over the TV anyday.

Yup in fact he cheered Moore on his sicko documentary even having Fox News give it a glowing review.

Do some hunting around you can find them chilling and eating dinner together.

The old goon is a businessman in it to make a buck. He flat out said he built Fox News because he thought there was a niche market for wing nuts. Not to mention his wife leans about as far left as you could imagine.

Fox also airs he Simpsons, Family Guy Nd American Dad which regularly lampoon the right wing and religion.

The Evangelical Atheist parallels with religious fundamentalism are obvious and startling: the conviction that they are in sole possession of truth , the troubling lack of tolerance for the views of their critics and the fact that atheists can never prove their view.

A start. Try measuring volumes and expanding those shapes, especially adding them together and figuring volumes. Look for that perfect center line. After a while you will see the difference between the true physical world and the math illusional one. Putting that math to paper as drawings turns the mental into the physical.
To be less vague. Doing that sort of thing introduces the idea of separateness within a whole. That perfect centerline dividing something larger. It is a shared line when dividing, but when you add two shapes of the same theoretical volume, they can't merge, You have two theoretical lines adjacent to each other. That is the clean math stuff. Reality is a lot fuzzier. There is no clean math explanation for existence.

Even your "particles" are really fuzzballs. Swirling energy, not "hard" and clean lined "objects".

All theist lies from a creationist who doesn't have any proof of god.

Do the world a favour and stop pretending to talk about science, grow some balls like a real man and prove your god.

Amusing.

Go stick you head back into the tube and gain some more knowledge. They will tell you how smart you are for understanding the world as they tell you it is.

No one else will tell you that you are.

I mean seriously you really sounded ignorant back there.
I think often you type in anger because we are factually destroying you so much, and that leads to so many of your major melt downs. I pity you actually. If this was high school you would be the LD kid barely keeping up with division, arguing math theory with kids in calculus II.

No I don't.

Since you two seem to be so hell-bent on proof, logic would dictate that you keep your minds open that God *might* exist unless proven otherwise.

But you don't.

You've come to your own irrational conclusions, without proof.

Way to go, "freethinker"...

Every person naturally knows that we came from somewhere they can't understand. Not giving God his due for the impossible (in human terms) existence is their first mistake. Instead they busy themselves with proving that something CAN come from nothing.

They try to justify themselves.
