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.

In most cases it is what the original Greek meaning of the word is. Anti-religion. It serves it's purpose for a person like Stalin or Mao. Eliminating religion is taking out a primary way for The People to have a voice, with The Government. Time after time, dictators place atheism in their government, because it is easier to have unchallenged rule. As you do see, but for Lord only knows what reason, you deny.
In what I am so happy to be in, modern America. We have people that think of themselves as Atheist, but they are not actually anti-religion. They just don't believe in God. I have posted this other places, and now I will post it on this tread for the first time. ATHEIST SHOULD HAVE MORE THAN ONE VOCABULARY WORD, TO DESCRIBE THE VARIATIONS. If you find that offensive, it is because you are a fundamentalist.
Ahh, my little yellow bellied, chicken livered, spineless moron, this explains why you are totally wrong. Atheism is (even in ancient Greek times) is/was “The belief that no god exists” It has nothing to do with anti religion, that my dear is nothing but your own wet dreams. Most atheists are not anti religious they are anti fooking ignorant and hateful morons like you. If you don’t like that then stop being an ignorant and hateful moron

You also seem to have a very distorted view of the politics of nationalism.

Stalin was christian in childhood tipped for the priesthood and after consolidating his position (by genocide as taught in the babble) he did considerable work to rebuild the christian church. That my dear ignoramus is not the work of an atheist

Mao was Buddist and so irrelevant to you wild claims

And there is more…

Pol Pot spent 16 years in a catholic school learning christian doctrine before decided on a career in genocide (funnily enough, as taught in the babble)

And shock of shock… Hitler was also christian with papal backing (and a papal ambassador to the Reich) What he did he did he did for his belief in god and jesus and was never excommunicated.

Please advise what YOU THINK these vocabulary words should be – how about morality? A word that has been hijacked by christianity and it’s meaning distorted to exclude any other HUMAN BEING that does not believe in their god or their way. The fact that morality was around a long time before a bunch of bronze age goat herders and escaped slaves got stoned and had a an idea that they know more then science does today.

How about theory, another word that christianity chooses to distort the meaning. Or church, ditto, or study, ditto, or truth, ditto, or freewill, ditto, or adultery, ditto and finally how about the word atheist that some christians (like you) don’t even understand.

Honey, you make the choice to distort whatever words you want to suite your limited mindset, that does not mean that atheist need to distort the meanings of words to suit your limited mindset. If you are incapable of understanding words then that’s just tough, get educated.

Why should I find your ignorant projection offensive? All I find is that you are a clueless and ignorant moron

What I do find offensive is that you insulted the memory of my grandfather and that you are too chicken sh|t scared explain yourself or to apologise

Worries here about Euro, if USA defaults.
Many here consider US politicians puppets for the powerful. Their agenda is their career, not the people.

Healthcare argument when nobody has healthcare? ludicrous. I thought this healthcare bill passed Congress passes Supreme Court and is now the law the land what's the argument about changing and already passed law

Healthcare is socialized here you don't pay for anything.

I like the new pope. How bout you?
He says we can get into heaven
... Lol

Didn't the affordable care act passed in Congress didn't Supreme Court say it was approved and now they want to change the law they don't like the outcome?

I know exactly how the earth was formed, as do most people. There is irrefutable evidence that you can find at any college or university, any geological institute (and many other scientific institutes) and most museums, even the internet - if only you chose to educate yourself but hey, that means learning and learning ain’t what you do – right?
But hey no one cares that ignorant godbots claim goddidt by magic out of nothing one Wednesday afternoon in October 6000 years ago with absolutely no evidence so they guess based on the word of bronze age goat herders and escaped slaves.
And as for god not being real, how about E=MC^2 which shows that no god as described in Revelation 19:6 (KJV) can exist in this universe at the same time as matter, and you are matter.
Poor little passionate and pouting Christine. Her emotions override her intelligence.

You speak words without understanding them. You obviously don't understand the meaning of those formulas you put forth as self evident truths. You can only see them as words, not as processes.

Your formula is what you get in a bottle. A closed system. The same thing as a battery powered toy you are a part of. You can't see beyond it.

But something gave you that ba ba or wound you up. You are a derivative of that "first cause". No matter what it was. The formula was not the cause, just a very rough description of transfer of energy caused by it.

Not long ago there was news on the internet about the strange sounds from the sky. This has been explained "scientifically". Disturbances in the atmosphere, largely from the EM effects from the cosmos. You are living in a drum, sweetness. That atmosphere is mass and energy and the same thing as a drum head. Displace some of that mass and its bindings via valence bonding and gravity and it sends waves through the atmospheric medium. It then strikes your eardrums. There has been studies of how cosmic bodies produce "sound". It is a physical fact of physics and the transfers of energy.

So "God", the first cause of our causation, "can" talk to you. You just need to learn the difference between "communication" and "noise".

I would suggest you spend some time with an elderly gentleman in SE Colorado to learn how to do such. We could start with some gentle words whispered in your ear, then who knows, you may find God after all of this time.

Your respect? How ordinary. Why are you so presumptuous? The toenails are not whats abhorrent, its you. Did I ever tell you about the things I ate on my amazon adventure? How about while I was working in the morgue? I may think of you if I ever see some skinny obnoxious dykes ruining the decorum of an eatery.

Thank you Eagle 12.
I'm vegan but my girlfriend eats meat. She was hungry and I was driving so we went to an Arbys drive through. I ordered whatever meat sandwich, I can't remember the name of it now, that she wanted and the guy who was talking to me through the giant meat eating menu sign repeated the order and told me how much it would cost. He said, "Is there anything else"? I said, "Thank you so much, that will be all".
When I drove to the window, he took my money and said, "You are the most polite person I've met this week. Thank you for that".
I said, "Awww thank you. Now where is my MEAT SANDWICH YOU MEAT SERVING MTHFR?"
Then I smiled.

Those are all real words that have been typed to me, Catcher1. Not necessarily on this thread but on others. I understand. I came to Topix when I was 17. Old people don't like being schooled by a teenager. They don't like it at all. Even though I'm not a teenager anymore, I'm still viewed as one.
I don't believe that for a minute.

It's all in your mind.

Are there older folks here trying to give you advice? Or telling you that you lack experience to understand certain things?

The earth just self created?

As did the trillions upon trillions of stars?

All life on the earth just created?

Everything made itself.

Matter just came together and started making stuff?

All on its own?

Such irony, when you stand back and look at what Atheist are claiming, it’s just side-splitting hilarious.

Obama ran his 2nd term on Obamacare-- and won by a historic landslide.

Empty threats from an empty mind.

Just like your Jesus' promise to his sexbuddies (disciples): he would return before they died.

He did not. They died.

Empty threats.
