Atheism requires as much faith as religion?

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. Full Story

You are an awesome display of atheist maturity, brainpower, and wit, Bob. A credit to the atheist species. They must be an evolved species to produce such an improved version of man's mental powers. All atheists should come up to your level.
You have spoiled us. We will have to ask those other wannabes why they don't come up to your level. Cheap copies reflect on you. How can they presume to call themselves atheists with you around?

You lie-- again... why?
You've been tutored on this subject endlessly-- by people more educated than you, by people smarter than you (that would be pretty much everyone).
Yet-- you keep repeating this obvious lie?
Why?
Atheism is **no** faith at all-- none--
-- and without faith-- there cannot be belief in gods.
If atheism is faith? Then bald is a hair color.
Butt crack shows up just as Robert Stevens disapears using exactly same wording in his arguments..

The rise of militant skepticism clouded the picture, however, beginning with its popular attack on religion.

The aim of Richard Dawkins, as stated in his best seller, The God Delusion, was to subject "the God hypothesis" to scientific scrutiny, the way one would subject anti-matter or black holes to scrutiny.

In fact he did no such thing with God, for the scientific method requires experiments that can be replicated and facts that can be verified. Dawkins offered no experiments to prove or disprove the existence of God. What he actually did was to subject religion to a barrage of scorn and ridicule, attacking it on the rational improbability - as he sees it - that a deity could possibly exist.

IANS, your secular humanism and faith it will win out IS an organized religion. Just another sect formed from the Christian ethos with a different perspective. Just another evolutionary branch of that Church.
It is not the first of its sort, which is why it is allowed. They all blend in to form something new. But you won't get rid of God and Jesus. They are the very pillars of even your morality.
Not for the morality of non-believers.

Got it.
In a nutshell.
This atheism and secular humanism enslaves man to his circumstances. His position in life. Nothing higher to aspire to. No escape. No self worth.
Lots of nice words about equality and fraternity, but reality is you are stuck. Ego killing. You are just a commodity for other men to trade in.
You do not have to have a belief in a deity to have self worth, nor do you have to have it to want great things in life.

You would like to believe your atheist Utopian society will be a classless society, mo matter how many people there are.

It won't be. You will be taught your true worth from childhood. There will be no limitations on your masters.

Make your reservations for the elite section now.

I will admit what you say is probably true in your case at this particular time in your life. And you may be on the summit enjoying the vast view. Enjoying all the life has to offer you.

You are liken to a train rolling down the track independent and free. The fresh air is hitting your face and lifting your hair. You feel powerful, independent, free and happy.

But how will you feel when your train is derailed and your life seems to end up a train wreck? What healing will atheism bring you? What will your self worth be when you look around and you are all alone?

My Dear, a lot of people have experience the train wrecks in life. They have questioned their self worth. Then in a world full of people they feel alone. Will the nothingness of atheism be there for you? That is a question that time will answer.

Think what you will... my statement stands, and it in no way brought the subject of a classless society up.
