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.

Your mom wanted a girl, so she beat you until there was nothing there.
When your dad saw you peeing sitting down, he looked down and said "that's my girl".
On a scale of 10 - I give it you a 2
because I've never seen a 1.

Yes indeed you are clearly defined.

I find you unusually incurious, abnormally unintelligent, amazingly inarticulate, fantastically uncultured, extraordinarily uneducated, and apparently quite proud of it.

I don't know about that, but what I do know is too many times I've found both sides to be equally obnoxious in insisting others follow their beliefs.

I've had just as many atheists eager to preach at me and go into a frothroll about how there is no God, and I had better agree with them OR ELSE! Then I walk down the street and get the same thing in revese--i.e. someone in my face insisting God exists and I'd better agree with them OR ELSE!

To me they're two sides of the same coin--one's a bible thumper and the other is just an un-bible thumper. They're rude either way and I have yet to ever say, "Oh okay, I'll follow along like a good little sheeple and agree with you, just because you say I should."

That's because they enter our forums with a holier than thou attitude.

These are people that believe snakes talk donkeys talk, wizards, angels, witches and devils you name it...exist!

What brings them to our forums to begin with?
You only have to read the nonsense that they post.

And what I find particularly hilarious...
They are perhaps the worst example of a Christian that any Christian church or congregation would want to claim.

They would actually have to attend Sunday preschool For remedial theology.

<quoted text>Are they?
To track down prey, avoid predators and find their way home in the dark, most bats depend on echolocation. They broadcast high-pitched sonar signals and listen for the echoes of sound waves bouncing off objects they’re looking for or obstacles in their path. Bats’ brains then process the auditory information within those echoes as visual maps.
Which gives some of them an advantage in night hunting.

Still not blind, nimrod.

You do know that one of the only two sub-orders of bats does NOT echolocate? And therefore relies on eyesight?

Sheesh.

Your ability to form even a semi-rational thought would be proof any of those exist. I've known many asses that can carry on a more intelligent conversations than you.

Despite the tiny eyes and nocturnal lifestyle, none of the roughly 1,100 bat species is blind.
“All bats can see and all bats are sensitive to changing light levels because this is the main cue that they use to sense when it is (night time) and time to become active,” said Paul Faure, of McMaster University’s Bat Lab.

Jesus walks into a hotel, tosses three nails on the front desk and says, "Hey, can you put me up for the night?"

Right now I'm having amnesia and deja vu at the same time. I think I've laughed at you before.

Yeah I just remembered...

We know you are tired of being hassled by you're unreasonable parents.
Now is the time for action!
Move out and pay your own way while you still know everything!

you know,, its sad, but you are mostly right. most christians that come here have one of three attitudes. they want to argue, they have some kind of misguided feeling of rightiousness that makes them want to convert you, or they legit want to test their mettle. i happen to be a combo of the first and the last. lol

im new to this particular discussion and so ill make my point breif. i dont particularly believe that atheism takes more faith than theism. what i do believe is that like any thought system, one hits a philosophical foundation that often times requires faith in one form or another. so i would say that belief and non belief have a fairly equal level of faith in the mix. i can support that more if someone would like.

Welcome to the forum Ray!

I am a Secular humanist.
My parents and most of my family were not religious. Religion seldom came up in conversation - And when did it was usually in a card game when Someone had a bad hand and mentioned 'God' as a expletive. ;)

After 911 things changed worldwide...
Not to mention the RCC's pedophilia problems, Again worldwide.

I live my life so that when my feet hit the floor in the morning Satan shudders, cowers in fear and says "OH For Christ's sake... he's awake!"

The only thing that is consistent about theists that come in here, is that when they find out they've been following a myth all their lives...

...instead of admitting it and using the knowledge wisely, they CHOOSE to Lie, Attack, Slander, Belittle, Propogandise.

Its the only characteristic they seem to consistently show - dishonesty.

I woke up a little constipated and grumpy, and then read this post by you. The chuckle relieved my constipation. Looks like a beautiful day out there now.

I know it isn't considered good form to laugh at the mentally disturbed, but the Creator does work in mysterious ways.

Thank you for your contribution to society.
