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. Full Story

Precisely.
Atheists consistently say they do not believe in deities.
Theists on the other hand are all over the place, and can't reach agreement.
Check out the Why Should Jesus Love Me thread.
It's a hoot to watch the Christians fight with one another over scriptural interpretation and other nonsense.
Topix Atheists are stamped from a mould.

Wouldn't be much variation in thought there due to cponstruction. In fact, such was already done for them.

Of course, that small minority of people believes they are the ones "in the know", you know.

You are missing soomething and don't know it, Catcher.

Looks like RR disagrees with you.

You guys take it from here.

But as I said, the Jesus thread is an excellent place to watch a Christian cockfight.

Seeking "the truth" requires different perspectives, and a fleshing out of them. A sort of "scientific approach".

You clowns just recite from a book someone recently wrote for you. No questioning of it.

Hardly "original" thinking.

BTW, "science" does not disprove a Creator. It is just an analysis of how something presently works. Yet you clowns say it does. Only in your own little and constrained minds.

Try thinking more deeply about thinking and existence. On your own.

The exact date of Jesus' birth is unknown. It's somewhere between 4BC and 3AD.
No one has birth certificates back then, Jesus was no exception to that.
The simple fact remains there's no evidence to support the existence of Jesus.

There is more than ample evidence of this in practically any library and it's all over the Internet.

Seek out the true origin your faith.
There's nothing to fear from seeking this knowledge.
You will find that all the desert religions are loosely based on the Egyptian. Christianity itself is "borrowed" From older cultures.

The Egyptian god Horus, Jesus and another God Mithras, all share more or less the same legend.

There are entirely too many coincidences between these three.

HairyBetty, what strikes me as comical is that atheists insist on more biblical literalism than theists.
Always looking for those technicalities.
Both atheists and christians are obsessed with God.
It is an ego trip - in both cases.
Christianity developed from taking the wisdom of a special man, Jesus, and weaving it into yarns that require material, like blood, sin, hell, a man-like god on a throne, etc.
That's material faith. Entirely egoic.
The atheist thinks there is nothing but material. Material is his god. What he thinks he knows, what he holds in his hand, these are god
when have you become atheist,Joe?

Curious. There is way more variety of thought in theism than atheism. Topix atheists all say the same thing.

Agnostic and atheist are not mutually exclusive terms as they deal with different things. As has been explained to you. Atheist just means you do not believe in a god. Agnostic means you do not know of one exists.

So one can easily be an agnostic atheist.

Who is a topix atheist Dave? I have never heard of such a thing, can you provide a link?

It's okay George Burns look alike, we know you can't answer because I have as usual outwitted you.

Ya, I know the difference between atheist and agnostic.

The point was there are people out there that *call themselves* atheists AND still think there may be a god.

Being an atheist has nothing to do with knowing or now knowing there is a god. That would be an agnostic or gnostic.

God at this point is just as likely as pink universe creating elves.

Sure there may be such a thing, but until we have some kind of observable proof there is no reason to believe.

Sadly you demonstrate once again you do not understand what an atheist is.

You do your own "thinking" and have drawn conclusions with said "thinking" within the parameters for such set in you by others.

You don't know how to get out of the box you are in.

I have all my fingers, although three have been altered from their original state.
