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.

I did not take your comment in regards to how David Nelson would view Muslims was in that nature, I found it to be the exact opposite.

All of these Topix atheist regulars just flat never grew up. Emotionally they are all still stuck in their adolescence.
That second link I posted did a good job of describing them.

I am a topix regular. I'm not still stuck in my adolescence. So the comment that I posted was to make a point that you cannot put a judgement on a group of people just because you meet some that you don't like.

ROFL! O.K., as long as we only stare at the goats, if you yell at them, sometimes they faint. Enough people have swooned from mystical/pseudo science/religion as it is.

Point is you cannot go into the details EVER - because you're creationist liars with no proof of anything.

Tricksters fraudsters with no hope of salvation even if your cult was true.

By now you have committed so many falsehoods, its a joke to see you still here.

This is in response to David Nelson being critical of the Atheist here in this discussion. I think it is nice of us, not to place these atheist with atheist we meet, or other atheist. We are being fair with those we meet taking them for their word instead of treating them like these dishonest meatballs here. It would be wrong of use to assume all atheist have the reading comprehension of these pin heads, and just babble on pointlessly.
Everytime a creationist posts here and doesn't post proof of god, they are showing theit stupidity.

Because most the time they want to tell people what to do and how to behave:

eg. go to hell, dont get married, keep slaves!

all those things your cult introduced and ALL without proof.

You should be ashamed of yourself.

And correct your book while you are at it - atheists are NOT fools.

Creationists are just LIARS.

Atheism says nothing about mass murder so creationist LIE again.

They try and slander atheist that show up the falsehood of their cult here.

This comes from a superstitious creationist.

"You self delusion and davesworld antic pants have no baring on my memory but you are free to delusion yourself as much as your emotional outbursts can stand"
You really want to show your ass. And you do. You also left out a comma and a period in that sentence. You also started it off wrong. Should have been "Your" instead of "you".
"I don’t care what or where you developed you godbit make believe. And you have no idea of my intellectual understanding of atheism, that my deal little fool is the whole concept of atheism that the godbot will never understand, it is not the structured religion of godbotism but it is the individual understanding of individuals."
Again, you instead of your preceding godbit, which should have been your usual godbot.
My "deal little fool"?
Missing comma. Two, actually.
"Intelligent man? Obviously does not take after you then? Are you sure you are the father? It is said that DNA testing is showing considerably less genetic link between the claimed father and the child than was supposed. Was you wife a naught girl?"
She could be quite a "naughty" girl. But he is mine.
"What emotional issues, you keep guessing based on you own projection but you never – ever offer any substantiation of your outlandish comments."
Is that one or two sentences? Plus missing a comma.
"Your deliberate ignorance certainly does show"
Missed your period?
"You don’t seem you understand the concept of debate, you make the claim that a mythical entity exists, it is therefore up you to substantiate that claim, or shut up about it"
? You missed a second period?
"Not me trying to prove anything, Einstrien did a pretty good job of that with E=MC^2"
Uh oh. You missed three periods. Oh, you also disrespected your god, there.
"Why do you have a fascination with my ass?"
Because you have it in everyone's face.
Fumble fingers and scattered brains. But you got a fine ass.
Your uncontrolled lust and wishful thinking is just that, uncontrolled lust and wishful thinking.

Since how long have you been qualified to diagnose dyslexia? Oh hang on a moment, you have claimed in the past to be an engineer, not a doctor. So this of course explains your ignorance.

And how long have you been on the payroll of the grammar and spelling police? What… WHAT… you mean you do it for free, jezus christ on a crutch, how pathetic.

It seems that you have nothing objective to moan about so you choose to take the p|ss out of disability. Although you may not realise it this is the perfect example of your deliberate ignorance. You may be interested to know that it was your type of ignorant attitude that drove me from the church. Well done.

I find it comical when people think they are getting to someone when in all actuality they have no point. Dave here thinks he has some sort of special powers. I personally think he's bipolar. One minute he can't stop talking about death and hell, and the next minute he's talking about loving woman's asses. However, you're right... he in general is not funny at all, he's actually quite depressing.
He certainly does not have the best of personalities and you are perhaps correct in the assessment of him being bi polar but personally I think it’s just living in davesworld that is turning him into a raving lunatic.

I have been on topix close on 3 years now and in the past it was possible to have a reasonable (if sometimes distinctly odd) conversation with him. His mental deterioration means those days are long gone.

This is the asme thing people used to say about thunder and lightning, and eclipses of both the sun and moon.

For EVERY event attributed to God or any other mystical power, science has ALWAYS stepped forward and given the correct explanation. If you want to play this game of "it's so complex and I can't understand it so God must have done it, then your God becomes an ever receding pocket of scientific ignorance. When science finally achieves abiogenesis, and they will, another God answer will be pushed aside by science, just as so many in the past have been pushed aside.

If you're thinking of delving into the horror story genre....don't. I doubt you could scare anyone but a 6 year old....or a theist. People who go around bothering little children usually wind up behind bars....be very careful, or just stfu.
Not a horror story, sweetness, it is hard scientific fact.

When your consciousness is aware the end is here it is going to go bananas. Spurious signals caused by neural network failures will disrupt your thinking process. That is just a fact from the materialist view of existence and consciousness. We know that from making machines.

The body can be totally disconnected, but there is a lot of activity going on in your head. Your higher level consciousness, your awake human functioning brain shuts down and your deeper consciousness kicks in, Just like going to sleep or knocked out. But instead of that brain having memories formed, or blocked, when you wake up you will be stuck with it until it is all gone. You can consider it your emotional center. Your will to live, your base existential engine without the waking consciousness controlling it.

The brain and increased consciousness and awareness is built outwards. This may be the secret to the religious experience, a phenomenon where the human brain makes a connection to the basic brain and writes a peaceful exit if not preparing for a new spiritual journey.

I really don’t understand what you are projecting here, methinks you confusion is getting the better of you. Have you seen the doctor about your deteriorating mental state?

It seem that you are displaying your rampant lust for all to see, what is that to do with my emotions?

Followed by a simple question regarding your qualification to make medical judgements, no emotion there, just a pure fact finding exercise. The fact that it shows you to be an ignorant moron is not an emotional response on my part but it does seem to have elicited an emotional response from you.

Then another question derived from your abuse of my disability and my curiosity as to whether you are paid for being such an ignorant prat. Simple curiosity, aain nothing emotional. And again it seems to have elicited an emotional response from you

Then an observation of your post that had nothing to offer this thread so I defined the obvious, you have nothing to offer. Fact, not emotion.

Followed by another statement highlighting you obvious ignorance, fact, not emotion.

And finally a statement of fact.

And it seem that you still have nothing to offer. It must be hard to live in davesworld eh?
