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.

So in other words, you have no evidence at all supporting your god, thus, you are delusional, your god is an imaginary friend you want other people to worship and nothing more.
Children make up imaginary friends at a young age.
Are they delusional or looking for the Jung's Collective Unconscious?

I often wondered why those very old people on their last leg, near the end their days. Who wander aimlessly around mumbling to themselves in a incoherent rambling .
Had I known earlier they were spending more time getting acquainted with their inner selves, I wouldn't been so convinced they were senile and going crazy.
Teenagers doing the same, "getting acquainted with their inner selves"are often treated with medication. To be different is feared by society? But our heros were often those who strived to find inner peace and self actualization.

Your bible claims we were "made in it's image," even then, a wizard does not have to be human, see Harry Potter for some examples, as well as Chronicles of Narnia. So you are worshiping a wizard, all that is required of a wizard is to use magical powers, or are you now claiming your god has no power?
A wizard with magical powers would be a good friend to have. Very useful, albeit not found easily in this world.

You'll get a kick out of this post of his:

I am especially proud of my volunteer work and donations to the humanist cause. Every year I go to the Philippines and spend thousands on food,water, clothing and medicine for the needy there. After a horrific typhoon and flooding there I was there amongst others 14 hours a day handing out supplies, giving life saving injections and treatments to those who lost their home. I stood and watched as homeless children lined up easily 3 miles deep for a package of crackers sandwich fruit and bottle of water. Unwanted children who were born because the Christian ran theocracy light government makes it nearly impossible for a woman to obtain birth control. My wife is in pre-med classes and wants to practice medicine there free to help those poor children. Here in the states I collect donations for running in marathons with the money going to children's charities and cancer or HIV awareness programs.
I have seen first hand time and time again the damage and heart breaking situations brought on by theists. The same theists who come crawling to us to help fix their mess! Oh but while we are fixing it are we thanked? Nope. We barely get the figurative broom in hand and they are shrieking at us for not believing in their imaginary friend.
Honor? I guess it is a relative term. 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.
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.

When one disconnects from reality in favor of communication with the inner self and is unable to function normally, they are called catatonic or are indeed suffering some type dysfunctional personality disorder.
Medication is in order.

Are you saying that Einstein said that fish drive cars? It sounds like you said that.
Oh you didn't, well I guess you need to read what Einstein said and what God said about prayer and belief. "Your prayers are not answered because you do not believe. The first requirement of prayer is the belief that God is, then that God is who He says He is, then that God can do what He says He can, then that God is willing and then you must believe that without doubt He will do it for you." It is math, and all elements of the equation must exist for it to work.
Einstein said that? Source. And if he did, it was a very stupid thing to say. No study has ever found proof that prayer works. Period.

Perhaps don't jump into discussions in the middle, and you won't have to ask stupid questions like who said what...

You don't have to be ashamed, prayer is a good thing.
Prayer is a word abused or misunderstood by christians, just like so many other words (truth, morality, church, worship and love also come to mind), I am not ashamed of such abuse, I am concerned that people like you abused words.

That it's exactly the response I expected from you. Do you know how many people I've had to correct because they don't know anything about building anything, but they googled it and watch the YouTube video and all of a sudden thought that they could do it. Then someone like me has to come along behind them and fix all the mistakes or, more often, start from scratch and just do it for them.
Good luck with that. Because you can't build a dresser with a YouTube video...
Too bad you still make assumptions with zero actual evidence. Sad to be as ignorant as you.

It doesn't rise and set.

But it APPEARS to rise and set because of the Earth's rotation on its axis.

If you were smarter than a five year old, you'd know that.
The sun is racing around the galaxy. It also wobbles due to gravity of the planets' orbiting it.
