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.

It is also "written" that the God you worship murders little babies and destroys unborn fetuses.

Sorry Your demon God is just another fictional character, you have no proof that he/she/it is NOT. Gullibility is a horrid thing, you have it in spades. LOL

Why do you print this juvenile crap at all? Do you really think we're going to read this, suddenly start trembling, fall to our knees, and accept Jesus as our savior? For most of us, religion is a been there, done that situation that failed to take hold. Once one is aware of how silly the religious trappings really are, there's no going back.
I just want you to know people do change and have the right to change their view. No need to get all upset because a fellow atheist converted.

This is a good example of how most new "atheism" is a socio-political movement and not a "non-belief".

Read the comments. "Two" atheists hit the nail on the head.

Fred's Story:
HOW FRED BECAME AN ATHEIST:
Raised Catholic and came to realize the God his priests were talking about had the ability to peer into his most private thoughts and convict him of "thought Crimes." He then found out after reading his bible that this God was unbelievably immoral, condoning slavery, Genocide, infanticide, and involved in blood sacrifice, and promoting the rape of young girls. his final straw was this God murdering innocent little babies, that was it for Fred. He immediately converted to a life of free thought, critical thinking, and extreme skepticism. The light of truth and facts can be a wonderful place, the place of Atheism. Lucky Fred!!!!!!!!!
If there is no God as you and your buddy Fred claim. Then all these atrocities were done by mankind. We must assume Fred is of the human race. So Fred’s fellow man did all these horrible things. What’s Fred going to do now?

Leave the human race?

Atheist are always praising evolution. Not once have they claimed evolution is responsible for all these horrendous diseases that plague mankind. Nope, they blame that all on God. Even though they say he doesn’t exist.

Let’s all interlock our fingers and sit down and chant,

“evoluuuuuuuuuuuuuuuution.“

“evoluuuuuuuuuuuuuuuution.“

You are right of course..atheism can be a belief. One not based on anything rational or logical, But then we are still talking about BELIEVERS, not atheists really. Which are of course non believers. In my world those who have become nonbelievers have done so from a logical and rational perspective, you wont trick them.

You don't have to. They trick themselves.

"Resist the majority."

Be different just to be different. Makes you feel better. Feeds the ego.

If they believe, then disbelieve. You can always find an excuse.

Like it has been continually pointed out. When you start advocating your "non-belief" it becomes a belief.

Why are you on here? To preach the message of your "non-belief", or to defend it? Or is it just to be obnoxious exclusively?
