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.

You need the education. There are people now planning on attempting to place life on Mars. Without humans animals would evolve differently. The whole game would change. Wolves and deer everywhere.
Wolves and deer on mars?

You do know people now do make androids and clones, and they are working on improvements everyday. Honestly, you need to really buy some modern science magazines.
Ergo aliens exist and are androids/clones. Logic! Right?

I absolutely can tell :)

I have a new picture now. I like it better than the old one. You understand that the way I perceive people here affects the way I interact with them, right?

There is a word to describe this:
Egomania. Look it up-- you suffer from it.
You are not going to answer the questions? Why am I not surprised?

Of course.

I expect we all do that.

Religion - its a mental illness. This is the first time this creationist has admitted he's never seen god either !!!!!
Why do idiots ignore the evidence??
You use these two words an awful lot,“mental illness.”

I think you are looking into a mirror and projecting.

So what were you diagnosed with? ASD?

It’s ok you can tell me, I won’t tell anybody.

As your bible claims.
Answer his question Bob, delve deep into your vast knowledge base. Impress the hell out of us. Don’t dance around it but a real straight forward answer.

If I had to write Genesis it would go like this,“In the beginning was Bob, then there was nothing.”

Because nothing is what you deliver when asked a really straight forward question.

Yet?
Your inept and feeble godling cannot manage to muster up sufficient god-juice to fix dying babies all over the world.
Why?
Nor can your uncaring god prevent kids from being abused by Men Of God™ on a daily basis.
Why?
Nor is your god able to see that enough rainfall happens in parts of the world, so that many children starve to death-- needlessly, if there had been enough rain.
Why?
Apparently your little personal god only sees fit to make the occasional miracle...
.... just and **only** for your **personal** benefit.
Why?
Why?

Why would a 35 year old male fall in love with a 14 year old girl?

Now that would be a real good question for you to answer Bob.

According to our resident Atheist here on Topix. Atheism is the lack of belief in deities. If so animals are Atheist.

That would mean a cow is an Atheist and same goes for vegetables.

So when an Atheist sets down to have a meal, he/she is partaking in cannibalism? Eating another Atheist?

I’m just trying to make sense of it all. It just sounds so sick.

Cannibalism is eating your own species, it may include eating a subspecies. Now ask yourself , Eagle are you a cow or a vegetable?
I'm guessing you're a mineral.

Oh I too once though we were the aliens.. on the moon, and mars.
But then came the realization.
If we do not encounter or find no sentient living owners, then we can claim it as our own.

So far we own the whole universe.

We will only become alien , when we actually meet one.
