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.

Do you truly not know the difference between an electromechanical system and a biological one?
Biological systems chance all by themselves, you prat.
They also do quite a bit of remanufacturing chemicals to grow, sustain, and replicate themselves. You can find elephant dung on the ground, and even elephant parts on the ground. But they are not recyclable. Those components have to be manufactured in house.

In addition to the wiring and construction schematics buried within relatively few molecules. Each seed of life is a full service manufacturing plant, plus a raw materials acquisition system. Sometimes they have to walk or swim a long ways and even engage in hostilities to obtain such. How big is an elephant's DNA?

Pretty fancy random engineering.

I bet you don't even know how to change a car battery.
I do--I've rebuilt engines in my day.

I have also rebuilt antique batteries-- do you know how to do that?

I doubt it-- I would bet you don't even know the difference between a primary battery and a secondary one.

Do you?

I would also wager you have no clue how a battery even works-- what makes it release electricity, or what gives it the ability to seemingly absorb the same.

It's sad, really...

You are still batshit insane.
You always have been-- you likely always will be.
It's kinda cute, though, that you care enough to respond.
A purely selfish action on my part. I enjoy laughs. You are handy.

Damn, and you were so close.

You actually put your finger on one of the differences between artificial and manufactured.

And then you shot right off the dratted screen.

----------
One more time, since you are so dimwitted:
I do not have faith in gods. I am therefore? An atheist.
I do not think it is possible to know the entire universe-- wherein may exist gods of some sort. I am therefore? An agnostic.
To sum up:
I'm an atheist-agnostic.
Or, if you prefer, I am an agnostic-atheist.
Either way is accurate.
Your lie? Is not accurate.
Blob face the truth, your 80k posts are a result of a seething wounded ex Christian. You are driven by rage about something you cant change. sucker.

Your physics is kind of strange, mac.

You seem to think protoplasm has magical powers.

Sounds like a transducer of EM to me. Or something like that.

I could star in it.

My root runs deep. It can get into the real goodie. Opens places the average man never goes. Why I learned to be such a gentle and considerate creature.

You know, I read things like that and just gotta ask where's the beef?

All of this fancy replicating, converting, splicing, repairing by chemical means.

I guess they just wander about until they get lucky?

Do chemists just throw things together, or do they have to have a plan? And maybe arms to move things from here to there.

Amazing how smart them little mollykools are.

They can create life and chemists can't. Truly amazing.

I wish all the women I knew were as stoopid as Topix atheists. They believe everything you tell them.

Get help---before you kill someone again.

And?

Your jealousy is duly noted and recorded.

How cute-- you are jealous of the number of my posts.
