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.

Not that this had anything to do with my post, but I take it you want to know what, "cdesign proponentsists", means. To get the most bang for your buck, google it, bing it, yahoo it, whatever you like.
The short answer is, the creationists who were trying to force ID into public classrooms got caught lying.
<quoted text>
I am not here to make friends, I am here giving my opinion. If you haven't noticed, I don't waste a lot of time here.
It is nice to know that you think that I should be doing what you think I should be doing. I haven't read a lot of what you wrote, but I would guess, just by shear numbers, that you would be offering your opinion to someone who spends all day on here, not on me, who writes very little. But, what would censorship be, if you tried to silence like minded people?
<quoted text>
I wonder where people got the idea to kill others?
Exodus 20:13 Thou shall not kill.
Just 25 verses later, your god is telling people to kill!! You find nothing wrong with that?
Exodus 21:12 He that smiteth a man, so that he die, shall be surely put to death.
13 And if a man lie not in wait, but God deliver him into his hand; then I will appoint thee a place whither he shall flee.
14 But if a man come presumptuously upon his neighbour, to slay him with guile; thou shalt take him from mine altar, that he may die.
15 And he that smiteth his father, or his mother, shall be surely put to death.
16 And he that stealeth a man, and selleth him, or if he be found in his hand, he shall surely be put to death.
17 And he that curseth his father, or his mother, shall surely be put to death.
I just cannot figure out where people come up with the idea to kill!
"Thou shalt not kill" is equivalent to murder, which is illegal.

Capital punishment and killing in defense are not considered murder.

Stop it already with your cherry picking bullshit.

Show where he was this hailed by atheists as a person of note.

Atheist dissent must be quashed...by personal attack if necessary.

Seems like religion.
He's a philosopher, right?

Not a scientist?

You are a blithering idiot.
What about the ones other Christians call "not true Christians"?

So eat some bread cooked on top of a stack of turds already! It's Yahweh-riffic! Lol!

Oh I did admit what they did was strange like believe on some desert god that you had to telepathically communicate with or suffer. That is very strange and sad with what we know today.

So you want to follow in the footsteps of people who spoke to hallucinations, ate bread cooked on a stack of turds, ran around the city naked babbling and drooling, and wiped their christhole without toilet paper?

These are your ahem prophets!

No wonder you fail so bad! Best think about it more as you dig those ditches!

Dumb ass, you don't eat the poop, you use it as fuel, as firewood.

[QUOTE] And for your ancient people comment?

Ya, and they also didn't use toilet paper or change their clothes very often.

Many things they did back then seem very odd to us.

If you weren't in such an anti-bible tirade, you'd admit to that.

Then came to earth as the man, Jesus, that we may know him; long prophesied - fulfilled. Unlike the pagan myths about caveman history supports the biblical account of world history.

Marxist revolutionary allied with the USSR for most of the war; product of Rome's sun cult. Same as atheists, yes. They are responsible for reshaping Christian europe into the atheistic mess we see today.
Hitler the Nazis and other wartime actors on all sides were all papal knights.

We can already declare you no authority on the Bible subjects and to have no interest in the truth of the matter.

College Comparative Religion 101 is no more than Brainwashing 101 needed to sell evolution theories.

I would form that in a question but you seem to have no answers.(

Ironically, you're both wrong.
They did include all the groups of christians in the count, because they are christian, but all the churches include members who have left in all their counts as well, so as to dishonestly inflate their numbers for tax purposes.

The Bible tells us what is a Christians. The Protestant reads the Bible. The Roman Church is determined to be the 'harlot' or 'antichrist'. Cant very well be antichrist and Christian both.

He is a philosopher of science, in this case, brilliant at subjecting scientific paradigms of thought to reason.

He is also a fellow of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences and held fellowhips with the National Science Foundation.

As far as I know, he doesn't dissect frogs, if that is your question.

No, next week it'll be the same it's always been - Hitler called himself a Christian because he knew he could fool idiots like you.
