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.

No it was a Jewish judge in the OT. I guess you have never read it.
<quoted text>
If it's in there I'm sure I've read it but it escapes me. I concentrate on the Law and the Prophets. You're also blaming God for the actions of human beings. We are like God in that we have free will. When one human being murders another, it's not Gods' fault.

Wrong.
Saying "wrong" doesn't make me incorrect. If the future is known, it cannot change, for if it can change, then it is not known.

<quoted text>I am not a Christian, Skeptic and do not accept any of their doctrine. Every time a Christian invents a new theology, they have to rewrite the bible to fit their delusions. The bible (OT) is the word of God and the most accurate English translation is the OKJV. All the other English versions are Christian interpretations.
I don't believe you

<quoted text>That is not true at all. When you look at your past, choices that were made, did you have freedom of choice? Yes, but no matter how many times you look at the past choices they remain the same. You now do not have freedom of choice over your past, but you still had freedom of choice then. Choice is a now thing, not past and not future.

Here is a game: Move your hand up or down, keep changing. The second after you have moved it in the chosen direction, change your mind. Go faster. Not faster enough, faster. Darn, you never seem to catch up to the choice you made.
Good.

So there is no omniscient god.

Congratulations.

<quoted text>The first Christians were told they needed to literally eat Jesus' body and drink his blood to be "saved". God does not approve of human sacrifice and the consumption of blood is expressly forbidden. Psalm 16:4 "Their sorrows shall be multiplied that hasten after another god: their drink offerings of blood will I not offer, nor take up their names into my lips". It's a sin to even speak the name of another god.
Catholics believe in transubstantiation.

I.e., the host eaten at communion is the ACTUAL body of Christ and the wine is the ACTUAL blood of Christ.

<quoted text>Dave, I used to think that you were just a goofball, but now it seems you are legitimately crazy. Are you so scared of death that you have to invent these afterlife fantasies? Do you really think you're going to become a roving EM ball after you die, free to "possess" people and live through them?
I had a dress rehearsal for it. Not scared as you think, but aware of what happens. You are the one in total ignorance.

Read up on your laws of conservation of matter and energy. You claim your consciousness is but a result of mass and energy being channeled in a particular manner. A personalized nuclear and EM signature. You claim to understand physics. Do a little thinking.

You can see the body laying there, a collection of mass with the energy it channeled switched off. Dead mass, so to speak. You may have experienced the energy that carcass emanated before it switched off. That EM signature is what animated it. You can see the carcass, but you can't see the energy that was there. It collapsed.

Life dies too quick for it to be strictly a material phenomenon. A level is reached, a switch is thrown, and the body is dead meat. Your belief would require a very long time for the mass to quit producing and channeling energy, and thus consciousness.

I've mentioned space being the ground state of this material world, mass being just a foam blown up in it. Collapsing the foam just sends it somewhere else.

Failed antiscience liar-troll with no proof of god babbling on endlessly about his hallucinated cult bullsh*t.

Already been confronted about having no proof of god whatsoever.

Dave believes that jesus rode on the backs of dinosaurs and that fossil arent really there.

Only an idiot denies evolution - physical evidence.

The world would be a blissful place if everyone had your mind.

Find a museum of old cars or computers or most examples of technology. Tear them apart and see how they were assembled. You will see evolution.

Now search for the original factory and designers.
