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.

"Philosophically, as a materialist creature, the bourgeois man was irreligious; thus, to establish an existential distinction between the supernatural faith of the Roman Catholic Church and the materialist faith of temporal religion; in The Autarchy of Culture: Intellectuals and Fascism in the 1930s, the priest Giuseppe Marino said that:

Christianity is essentially anti-bourgeois ... A Christian, a true Christian, and thus a Catholic, is the opposite of a bourgeois.[13]

Culturally, the bourgeois man is unmanly, effeminate, and infantile; describing his philistinism in Bonifica antiborghese (1939), Roberto Paravese said that the:

Middle class, middle man, incapable of great virtue or great vice: and there would be nothing wrong with that, if only he would be willing to remain as such; but, when his child-like or feminine tendency to camouflage pushes him to dream of grandeur, honours, and thus riches, which he cannot achieve honestly with his own "second-rate" powers, then the average man compensates with cunning, schemes, and mischief; he kicks out ethics, and becomes a bourgeois.

The bourgeois is the average man who does not accept to remain such, and who, lacking the strength sufficient for the conquest of essential values -- those of the spirit -- opts for material ones, for appearances.[14]"

Interesting observations.

There was no need for me to advance my knowledge in that subject.
And now I've forgotten most of it. You know, if you don't use it, you lose it....

I high school? Is that like in the movie how high?

Woo. A capitalized "Physicist".

Must be something really special.

And can use tools, to.

Now, tell us, why can't you carry on a rational discussion?

Because you are irrational and limited in vision.

That name is inscribed lots of places. Supposed to be everybody's god.

Not mine, though. It's packaged differently. But you aren't capable of understanding that. Evidently the word triggers random neuron firing and irrationality in you.

Here's a challenge for you.

Impossible 4-D Quadrilateral.

Try making one of these things out of wood. My brother asked me to make him one out of wood for him, I made a cardboard one as a template and then recreated the pieces in Mahogany. It nearly drove me mad,got there in the end but a difficult task to say the least.

One of the curious things about godbots is the avatars they choose. Quiet a lot of you have a military theme, why is that? Do you think you are a bunch of bad asses or are you just trying to compensate?

Yes I do.

Just because a person doesn't know calculus doesn't mean that person isn't smart or doesn't have common sense.

You're the "Physicist" and you don't know this?
