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.

Atheism is not a religion. There's nothing you can do about it.

Your statement is illogical.

Considering the voluminous amount of data we have acquired regarding evolution in a relatively short amount of time - and the complete and total lack of evidence that any god ever existed (its all about faith, after all)- it is far more logical that one would have faith that science will be able to fully explain creation in the future.

It would be great if there were proof of some god, but it isn't there.

Atheism is still not a religion, try as much as you might to lie about it.

It just shows how deep your brainwashing has gone, that you cannot accept atheism's own definition of itself - its not a religion.

Save the no true scotsman fallacy as a defence for your failed creationist cult.

You assume that there's a creator with zero evidence - a symptom of the mental illness of creationism

Nope you're just another creationist bitter at having your creationist cult kicked the sh*t out of publicly day in and day out by people with jobs and real lives.

That's right we take care of you in our spare time, that how effortless it is to show you proofless wonders up in forums you try and fail to troll.

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.

Lol, what else can you expect from intellectually stunted theists? It is sad that they are guilty of repressing themselves.
Yeah... I knew Robert Stevens was a loonie-tunes but I had no idea just how **much** of a loonie-tunes he really was.

Until his past life regression bullshit.

I'm actually surprised he hasn't tried to promote homeopathy...

Dawkins is an atheist, but just because he says something does not mean that all atheists immediately believe it.
Thats because atheists only share one conclusion and that is that they don't believe in what people who are brainwashed by cults believe in.
Its that simple.
When you liars can prove that the answer of the universe commands you to the follow a human written book, you will cease to be regarded as mentally ill.
Actually you are more religious than he could ever be. Trust me on this. Opps that word.

I think it's a lack of social skills. They've turned it into a religion, and this is their Cathedral. This group is the most hopeless.

Actually? Most secular humanist churches have qualified.

But so have the Universal Unitarian churches, many of whom welcome atheists as members.

But these are not **atheist** churches, per say. There are none such, as atheism is simply a lack of belief in gods.

There **are** churches who require members to **be** atheists to join, however. They **always** have various lists of things they hold important beyond the basic requirement of not believing in gods, though.

It's amusing that the godbots cannot seem to understand this.

The above loony-tunes is not an argument in support of anything.

Just a sad attempt to be insulting... classic True Believerô.

Non-believers are served with humanist, skeptic, Brights, rationalist, freethinking and secular groups and orgs. Horses for courses. People can usually find something in their area.

All the law is saying (US LAW) is that atheism if declared deserves the same protection under the constitution, that religion does. Therefore freedom of religion is also freedom from religion.

All this was brought up because an atheist in prison wanted to form a study group, but was denied. What the law did , was say an atheist has the right to go to the prison library on Sunday, instead of church. If you can call "study" a religion then atheist prisoners won the right to in court.
