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.

The arguments are intended to promote rational thought and skepticism about god claims, not to fight the god. Part of disempowering the church is showing the logical inconsistencies and moral failings of its central character, the deity.
How do you get that we believe in this god from that activity?
I don’t think you or your compadres are making a difference. Some battles and wars you just can’t win. But as we saw with Saddam Hussein administration. Iraqis were claiming victory right up until Saddam was pulled from a hole in the ground.

Saddam came out of that hole like he was Punxsutawney Phil on groundhog day. So you are in the ground my friend and you’re going nowhere fast.

<quoted text>I probably should have put a qualifier on my statement and only included the three major religions as dangerous, Christian, Muslim, and Jewish. I don't consider Buddhism and Janism as religions as there is no mythical God figure attached to them.
No, of course I would never resort to violence against any religion, that goes without saying, nor do I support anyone or any group that does.
to see and hear, I would believe. I would have serious questions .
Oil is a liquid and so is water. Mix the two and you’ll see separation. Muslims and Christians don’t mix either. Even though you are trying to containerize the two religions.

I hope you are sincere about being a non violent individual. Because I really do wonder how many militant Atheist here on topix have felony records or crimes buried in their past. The forest and desert is full of dead bodies that haven’t been discovered.

You never know Doctor who is feeding off your radical extremist views. Even if you are not a felon, your words could be motivation for some deranged militant Atheist. Taking out his hate and aggression on some little Christian girl riding her bike in the neighborhood.

There has been these crazies in society such as Jeffrey Dahmer. A self confessed Athesit at the time and a serial killer with 17 known murders.

Now you have mentioned many times these radical terrorist they flew the planes into the WTC. Not once do you mention United Airlines Flight 93. Todd Beamer, a 33 year old student, father, faithful employee, Sunday School Teacher who lead the charge to take back the aircraft from these thugs. His famous last words,“Let’s Roll.”

No you don’t want to mention Flight 93 or the heroics of those passengers who defied the terrorist. As far as your serious question goes. It’s a hypothetical and not applicable to me. But I will answer that question with a scripture. I’m sure you know Wayne Newton, Mr. Las Vegas. Well Wayne has a son named Ricky Newton, who lives in Houston Texas. Ricky is a Christian and this is also his favorite Scripture. And this scripture will answer you hypothetical question.

Romans 8:38-39
Amplified Bible (AMP)

38 For I am persuaded beyond doubt (am sure) that neither death nor life, nor angels nor principalities, nor things [a]impending and threatening nor things to come, nor powers,
39 Nor height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation will be able to separate us from the love of God which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.

You don't see a contradiction in that short comment?
As you being a Medical Doctor you’re well aware that the majority of heart disease is due to smoking, and poor diet habits. Not in every case we both understand but the majority.

Most of us have owned an automobile. Some cars last for years and others are junk after 10 years. Longevity depends on the owner and the preventive maintenance done on the vehicle. The human heart is no different. It all depends on the owner in the overwhelming majority of the cases.

So there is no contradiction.

How cute.
If what you say were true? No atheist would ever be a successful ...**anything**...
... but that's clearly false:
Most actors are atheists.
Most musicians are atheists too.
Proving you are simply full of shyt as per your usual.
What would really be the use, your reading comprehension skills are too lacking for you to understand what is posted. Most of your post are too far off to refute. This one is a great example.

You are seriously clueless- I've never made that claim.
In fact? I've said the exact opposite on multiple occasions-- there are millions of different religions.
Which is ample proof that NO GODS are behind ANY.
Because any religion backed by a GOD?
Would soon overshadow all the rest.
That is YOUR VERSION of God, and one you stress so greatly. I can't believe you don't believe, in fact I don't. God grants free will, therefore, you will have many interpretations. The idea you don't believe in something and you "insist" it is an exact way. You betray yourself. It is too funny how many post you do it.

Now if you could refrain from calling me all the names and berating me for having and sharing my personal answer that would be wonderful. Thank you again.
If you were to observe closer, it is my response to my beliefs being questioned. I said I have faith, therefore I don't owe proof.

Then you understand how we feel about the Christian church encroaching into government. I don't particularly appreciate it turning the Pledge of Allegiance into a prayer, nor the currency into religious tracts.
I'll give you this, we do agree that "In God We Trust" should not printed on our money. In my case I say is disrespects God.

How timely to run across this almost immediately.
Do you feel that skeptics don't have the right to try to get that phrase expunged from the Pledge? Why would a skeptic pledge allegiance to a government that excludes and disrespects him with such an inclusion? Where's that government's allegiance to him?
No I don't, I do support their right to leave the country. How many of them would go into an atheist nation, then become theist. These people just like to disagree. This tread shows you that.

One nation under God. The pledge and US History as it is taught, I all part of a winning formula.
You moron dont even know history,or else youre Lying for Jebus,again

The Government of the United States of America is not, in any sense founded on the Christian religion

The U.S. Constitution

The United States Constitution serves as the law of the land for America and indicates the intent of our Founding Fathers. The Constitution forms a secular document, and nowhere does it appeal to God, Christianity, Jesus, or any supreme being.(For those who think the date of the Constitution contradicts the last sentence, see note 1 at the end.) The U.S. government derives from people (not God), as it clearly states in the preamble: "
We the people of the United States, in order to form a more perfect Union...." The omission of God in the Constitution did not come out of forgetfulness, but rather out of the Founding Fathers purposeful intentions to keep government separate from religion

Nonsensical drivel from a satanic worshipper. Of course we know satanic cults favor Atheist and Atheism.
Atheists refuse to believe in any unsupported entity and that would include Satan. God, Satan, Angels, Demons, Werewolves, Bigfoot, the list if long for imaginary being and things that people who exercise skepticism refuse to believe in. reason and logic along with critical thinking are also important.

I think we are making a dent in the armor of religion, especially among the younger generation. Do some research on a new and fast growing group who call themselves the "Nones"
