Atheism requires as much faith as religion?

Full story: Webbunny tumblelog

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.

That is why that was the only thing you could understand in that response I made.

4th grade now, huh?

It's getting cold.

Your audience needs a concert. They are begging you.

Give them a little extra this time. Something to sink their teeth into until your next performance.

<quoted text>Millions of gullible people exist as evidenced by those who buy a fictitious being blowing on a handful of dirt to create a fully formed male. Jim Jones got plenty of gullible people to not only kill themselves but to murder their children also. How incredibly stupid do you have to be to believe in a global flood and an Ark carrying every animal on Earth? With just a little PR and some charisma I should have no problem. It might be a good experiment to see how many gullible people I could get to believe in such a ridiculous proposition. Maybe I'll start with all those who reject the facts of evolution, they're certainly stupid enough to buy my Fish Gods from Neptune.
You have to be both stupid, gullible and entirely ignorant. That's three things, really.

But faith will do that to a person: make them stupid and ignorant.

The gullibility is what lets the faith work in the first place-- it's there already.

P.T. Barnum understood it very well.

<quoted text>So you found a scientists who believes in God, very good. I can find just as many who do not, and would scoff at Kaku's position Neil DeGrass Tyson an astrophysicist, Richard Dawkins an evolutionary biologist, Neil Turok a cosmologist, all would scoff at such a childish position held by Kaku.
Indeed.

Roughly 7% of scientists in a recent survey believed in a personal god.

Among the remaining 97%, they wonder why that number is so high.

You won't understand that. Which we can add to your collection. However, you are in the majority of the planet as far as that goes.
Refer to your BBT.
But to help you grasp that, and count, your fingers are a fraction of you.
You won't grasp that, either.

Sucker.
Do I seem like I give a f**ck what these "leaders" say?

I pretty much don't-- I've never read a single book by Dawkins, for example.

You are under the false impression that atheism is a kind of "thing".

It's not-- atheism is simply disbelief in stupid crap like gods.

That is **it**.

There **are** people who happen to be atheists, who are against religious abuse-- and there is a strong movement in that arena.

But it's not organized at all, and there are no leaders.

I was one of the earlier victims of youth seeking truth and knowledge in my own way being trampled by the jackbooted reactionary establishment.

I flunked algebra because I refused to do proofs, and homework. The answers on the test were right, but the teacher was a German woman with a heavy accent and no sense of compassion, diversity in thought, or tolerance of such things.

Prove it wrong.

You fit the model description. It should be stamped next to your serial number. Take a look.

You aren't at all original in your thinking and utterances.

There may be some cases where an abortion is necessary. But abortion as birth control method is just wrong.
Of course it is. Do you know somebody who disagrees with that?

It's the woman's choice, Eagle. The Supreme Court agrees with me. If you don't like it you can always move, right?

I thought you said you did not read my posts?

So how on **earth** would you know if I was original or not?

You would not-- but you seem willing to **lie** about it.

Typical.

No. Your god is no more real than your ethics or empathy.
