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.

Now if coming on topix and giving the theists a little taste of backbone, the theists who try to intimidate and silence non believers because they think we should all be meek and humble and tolerate their abuse and repeated logical fallacies makes me vile, Without reason, Disrespectful, In someone's opinion? So be it, hmmm I will chuckle about how vile And disrespectful I am Friday at U of L for the 6 hours I am assisting the students there as a volunteer. Or perhaps this summer as I am passing out thousands of dollars worth of free medicine and other essentials trying to save some more homeless from dying. Yes I was walking by a group of people there and they were huddled together praying loudly and crying. I looked in and a young girl was on the ground dying of dehydration. Instead of getting her water and rushing her to the hospital they stood there holding hands and praying! I grabbed my cell phone and called for an ambulance and started trying to get her to drink. Slowly she sipped the water as the praying continued. The ambulance came after almost an hour and reluctantly took her to the hospital, the paramedic said she was good as dead and best leave it in the hands of Jesus same thing the crowd thought. She died 18 hours later. They didn't even know her name and couldn't figure it out.
I guess I'll somehow deal with being called disrespectful.

And this self-described worldly and well hung individual's life seems to be centered on Topix forums.

" The dozen of urban low income students I assist for free with their biology and pharmaceutical homework at two different colleges locally would probably say good ole KJ is an alright dude."

"biology and pharmaceutical homework"=sex and drugs. He gets the sex, or cash, they get the drugs.

You didn't ask for evidence, you asked for proof that prayers were not answered. Perhaps you live in some parallel universe in which the starving children were fed with manna and quail delivered from heaven, but in the real world, they died slow agonizing deaths of starvation, by the tens of thousands, in spite of millions of prayers going up in their behalf. We have only three choices - we have proof here that either the prayer were not answered, or we have proof that this God is the capricious unfeeling bastard child of the gods of Poverty and War.

Or we could allow that there is no God entity that actively involves itself in human affairs.

I opt for #3. The other two choices are too horrific to contemplate.

Funny that I can build a house better than you.

Funny that I build a dresser better than you.

Does that make me smarter than you or you smarter than me?

Nope.
