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.

You think you need faith to NOT believe in something? That is severely religitarded.

For the benefit of vocabulary control, let's call it faith.

Belief has various other meanings.

For example, I believe I saw her yesterday.

Or, I believe I'll have another beer.

Or, gee whiz, I don't believe you would do that!

Or, you're a liar, I don't believe you.

This is one of those statements that sounds kinda profound, but when you really think about it it's nonsense. Of course part of being skeptical is being skeptical about your conclusions.

Wrong, Wavy.

Atheism is to believe something - it is the belief that no god exists.

Your statement didn't sound the least bit profound, Tiny Tim.

Not for a second.

So Sigmund has you beat.

In fact, you sound stupid as a sac of dog shit.

Are you skeptical about that?

No religitard, it is to recognize that there is no evidence for god. That is why the faithful say that they have faith in god despite the fact that there is no evidence that god exists. So simple even a Christian should be able to understand it.

Topix atheist escape from reality.
Having someone else entertain, or think for, them.
They can't find any joy within reality.
Gee, never heard of them or any of their music. They must have never made it very high in the charts. You should listen to "Summer Breeze" by Seals & Croft, good 70's music.

Ho hum.

You're still in denial Buck.

Atheism is a simple disbelief in what theists lie to society about.

Its based on hard evidence, including the evidence that your creationist cult's god is scientifically impossible.

Its also based on the previous record of your cult - having never proved anything it has ever claimed, and in fact its claims being overturned by hoards of scientists, researchers and even the courts!!

Its laughable that your try to defend creationism, after it was exposed as a fraud in 2005 during the election.

It also failed to get creationism taught alongside science in Kansas. The person who fought and won the case was a student - not even anyone senior.

Because that's just how easy it is to disprove your weak, failed cult of liars.

My point you are wanting to see visible proof of a spirit that is invisible in most cases. Because God is not seen by the natural eye doesn’t mean he doesn’t exist.
I didn't ask you for visible proof. Skeptics like me ask if you have any evidence of any kind at all, and if not, how you can decide there is a god, and how can you decide which one it is. It sounds like guessing to me.

When you can prove your god, you won't have to try and fail to insult the poster that exposed your weak and cowardly cult of liars.

No I'm not, it's just you don't "read too good".

If your all powerful god exists, yes because the story goes that your god created all things. But that's not nearly good enough. If your all powerful god exists, it is an evil POS.
