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 coversation is a symptom of the mental illness of creationism.
Atheism is not a religion or an organisation, its merely the conclusion after all the religious liars in the world have been exposed by hard science.
This is why atheists don't own whole hospitals.
Atheism is not a reason to care about other people. Atheists do care about other people, but their atheism is not the reason why they do it.
If you like, atheists have higher morals - they don't need childish religious stories to make them behave. They do it anyway.
Atheists find the world scary when the only thing between murder and a christian is an imaginary god and a dying cult that builds buildings every 30 minutes from each other with gigantic crosses on top of them (and lightening conductors).
Atheist don't own hospitals because they are selfish and uncaring. Every time a natural disaster comes around guess who’s funding 99% of the Red Cross and Salvation Army? You people won’t even give blood. Oh sure one or two per hundred thousand Atheist might.

Then you people get on here and talk about how sorry Christianity is while we’re spending billions on medical research and healthcare. Not to mention feeding the homeless and helping those who are abused.

So what is your pitiful reaction,“your lying.” Oh for crying out loud is that the best you can do? Like a two year old who can’t face up to the truth. Get real carbuncle.

By that logic, you would also have to work hard to not believe in the Easter Bunny.
All atheism is is the lack of a belief in deities. Its not something one really has to work at...
Atheism is a cult like following in which it's creed is, Me-Myself-I.

Our President John F. Kennedy went to Germany and said these words,“Ich bin ein Berliner.” Meaning I’m a Berliner, a free man representing the free world.

Freedom always sticks in the crawl of Atheist. They would prefer there was no freedom.

To you atheist around the world and including Europe.

"Give me liberty, or give me death!" is a quotation attributed to Patrick Henry from a speech he made to the Virginia Convention. 1775

I never have figured out why you Brits are so willing to give your teeth to the Cops. When they say,“get off the street,” you just stand there and look at them.

You know they’re going to bash your freaking head in. Another thing why do you people love tear gas so much. A three year old can’t have a birthday party unless half the neighborhood is gassed.

Even the dad gum nursing home patients get tear gas.

What’s up with you guys? That’s why the Earths ozone is depleting. It’s because of the billions of tons of tear gas the Brits are using on themselves.

Another thing, why do you trample over little old ladies and children in those soccer games? Three hundred or more people, mostly women and children are trampled to death at every game. Ya’ll like freaking steers in a stampede.

Thanks. On the third paw? I really don't need convincing that none of the major religions have managed to locate any proof for their various gods and demi-gods.

If there really was proof of gods?

It would've made the news.... as a bare minimum of standards.

I missed the NFL game this evening between Dallas Cowboys and the St Louis Rams.
But I did look up the score and it was reported Dallas 31 and the Rams 7.
Now I retrieved that score from the internet just like I retrieved the information on the number of bibles printed and or sold.
Note: It has been my observance in life the team that loses never likes the score. And my team the Rams lost today, lol.
I had me a look around the internet. 6 billion is a grossly inflated figure, and was, at best, just a guess.

Mainly due to the **fact** that there are so many conflicting **version** of the bible.

Versions that, when compared side-by-side, prove even the basic stories are seriously flawed.

Be that as it may?

More than 90% of all bibles printed, were given away-- likely to people who won't bother to read them.

Contrast this with actual...**BEST**SELLERS** which are purchased to be READ.

Rolling papers for weed? Hope not in a non smoking room.
I don't smoke myself--- I'm seriously allergic to all kinds of smoke.

So I've never tried any kind of smoking product.

But I have been friends with people who love them their weed, yes.

Many of them report that those gideon bibles made for the best doobies.

I cannot say, myself-- allergies prevent me from even being in the same room as cigarette/mary-jane smoke.

But I do admire someone finding a **positive** use for something so vile (bible)

I don’t know if you ever wear cowboy boots. I love them but can’t wear them because they hurt my feet.
But there’s nothing like smelling a fresh new pair of boots still in the box. The same for nice leather bibles. They have smell that is sooooo good.
It’s better than sniffing Freon and it won’t hurt you either, lol.
Actually? Freon is completely inert-- there is zero reason to sniff it.

You could get the same effect, from "sniffing" pure nitrogen or helium.

Unless you get the temperature well over 1000 degrees, freon is like wax--- non-reactive.

As for that nice leather smell? Well, yeah-- a lovely leather bound book of Charles Dickens **does** have a nice aroma.

And in contrast to your bible?

People actually **read** Dickens. Because they **wanted** to.

I find that 99.9999% of bible-lovers? Never read the damn thing.

This is likely why they still think it's a "good" book...

Thank Science!

For under **religion**? People just turned to useless **prayers**.

And, naturally, they **died** from bee-sting allergies.

Babies, even...

... apparently god is too busy fixing SPORTS SCORES to pay attention to the distress of babies dying from fatal allergies...

Would I go to an all funded Atheist Hospital?
Many Jewish hospitals in the East Coast are pretty much pure atheistic.

So there you go.

I find it interesting that **most** supposedly "religious" hospitals have been sold to **profit-making** corporations.

They retain the trappings of "religion" because such fraud soothes the tiny minds of people like... well... you.

But make no mistake: their god is PURE GREED (or profit).

It has become a serious problem in the USA, in the last 20 years.

In Europe we have publically funded health care, and a parallel private system for those who can afford to pay. This in my opinion is a lot fairer system (and has nothing to do with religious myths). All taxpayers pay into this through the tax system, and it means people arent going to die in the streets through not being insured, which is what I believe can happen if you rely on insurance or private donations. I would prefer to have a system which is reliant on a quality public service than put any trust in religious charities (which are proven quote often to be run by charlatans).
Oh Noes!

People who are not **wage**slaves** are getting HEALTH CARE?

Jewsus won't not HAVE it, they tell us!

Yep.

In the USA, there are few and far private (religious) hospitals left.

The majority are fully owned by **corporations**, and have been converted to PURE ENGINES OF PROFIT.

It's disgusting, really: these abominations are making MONEY off of people's SICKNESSES.

Atheist don’t have anything, nothing because like I said as a organized caring group. They don’t participate and they will never participate in any serious organized effort. Oh sure there’s and individual here or there but as a group, not.
Yet in the typical hypocritical fashion the Atheist consistently bash Christians after we spend billions on medical research and healthcare. What they spend as a group is non existent, nill.
You Atheist have no hospitals other than the secular one’s the government provides. And secular is not Atheist as much as you want to try and claim it. As a group you are uncaring, and unconcerned. Your mission is to remove one’s legal right to freedom of religion.
I really don’t know why your forefathers didn’t embrace Stalin. He had the same goals. Bash the heads in of the religious and worship the communist flag.

Do you know what the top largest charities in the world are?

No?

Hint: they are **not** religious.

Here's a second hint: Bill and Melinda Gates (atheists).

Actually? There are a large number of purely **secular** charities in the USA.

In fact?

The **best**(that is, the least fraud) are pure secular organizations. Including hospitals.

The best **research** hospitals are **secular** ones too.

I find that interesting.

Apparently, among the Godbesotted?**RESEARCH** is forbidden...
