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.

Why not attack Atheism directly, instead of trying to claim Stalinism is Atheism?
Atheists ask people to read and think, not kill one-another over the politics of belief.
Most wars have been fought over land.

You can learn that by reading.

Its supposed to be the thought that counts, but that's what's absent in religion.
Thankfully your opinion that you adore and think so much of. Means nothing to anyone. But thank you for sharing it with us.

I wouldn't. That's all Dave working out his issues regarding shame, regret, and resentment. My posts push those buttons even when they have nothing to do with him.
You are are so mistaken.

You would like to think you are pushing my buttons to feed your ego. Dave has too many miles for that to be. What you are seeing is Dave trying to puncture that very thick bubble you blew around yourself and get you in touch with reality.

Atheists' hate for the Declaration and the Constitution is second and third to their hate for the Bible.
Ya got that bass-ackwards as per your usual idiocy.

Atheists think the **godless** Constitution is a perfect example of **secularism**.

It's you hideous sheeple-of-faith, who wish to do away with the **godless** Constitution and replace it with whichever "holey" book you are worshiping *this* week.

Get real.

We ask Atheist to lose their conceit, arrogance, narcissism, ego, vanity, self righteousness, hatefulness, bigotry and selfishness.
Atheist ask religious people to be like them with all the personality defects that are listed above. And to be closed and narrow minded. In addition to accept speculation sciences as being a fact.
Atheist also ask that religious people accept that they (believers) are less than human. Similar to the way the Nazi’s saw the Jews pre WWII. Atheist ask that believers give up their constitutional rights because the way they see it they have no rights.
It’s such an obvious choice. Be arrogant like you or continue with our inalienable right to freedom.
The above was written by a conceited and extremely arrogant narcissist who's ego is so huge, he actually believes the Ultimate Creator of Everything cares about little old insignificant him.

Sad.

Or you can continue to be willfully ignorant.

You have that freedom.

If you want to at least pretend to appear even remotely credible, stop using yahoo search.
You're welcome.

Really? What took them so long? The Christian bible was the same when these rights were recognized than when they were suppressed. The only thing that had changed was human culture.
And as secular humanism continues to gain traction, new rights are being recognized and acknowledged. Christianity is incapable of doing that. "Natural rights" don't evolve.
No, it had nothing to do with the Bible or human culture changing.

The concept of god-endowed rights allowed the abolition of slavery.

Lincoln based his entire opposition to slavery on it. The abolition movement based their opposition on it.

ML King Jr. based his appeal for civil rights on it.

The distastefulness of these events to atheists does not change the history.

I think we've also reached the end of this discussion. We've each posted our opinions, and there is common starting ground from which to proceed. I am an atheist, and an agnostic, and have taken no leap of faith there.
No, you are not an atheist and an agnostic.

That's impossible.(married bachelor)

You are an atheist.

ONE more point. Both the atheist and the theist take a leap of faith past reason and knowledge.

The advantage in rationality of the theist is the number of ways he can be inaccurate, but his theism still be the more logical choice. There is a myriad of ways to be mistaken about perceived qualities of a deity, but still be right about the existence of A deity.

With the atheist, it's one shot and done. There is no room for error. No deity means no deity, and to be correct, he must be 100% correct. No margin. No wiggle room.
