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.

I recommend against a nation following your idea of rights coming from people.
I recommend the opposite. Calling the rights natural, objective, or god-given elevates them to a status beyond questioning

That has always been true and always will be.

You need people of a certain temperament and value system in charge for a society to flourish. I recommend against choosing faith based thinkers with ancient systems. I think the humanists do a much better job.

More family values from the sick book.
Deuteronomy 22:28-29
New International Version (NIV)
28 If a man happens to meet a virgin who is not pledged to be married and rapes her and they are discovered, 29 he shall pay her father fifty shekels[a] of silver. He must marry the young woman, for he has violated her. He can never divorce her as long as he lives.
This only applies if the rape doesn't happen in a city, otherwise they are both to be killed. The bible makes me want to puke!
This is what it really says,

Deuteronomy 22:28-29
King James Version (KJV)

28 If a man find a damsel that is a virgin, which is not betrothed, and lay hold on her, and lie with her, and they be found;

29 Then the man that lay with her shall give unto the damsel's father fifty shekels of silver, and she shall be his wife; because he hath humbled her, he may not put her away all his days.

I'm sorry to belittle your near death experience by calling it a monkey tripping on acid.
However, the moment you came to, and started babbling about how almost dying has personal meaning to you and significance, this was the moment you should have been slapped into reality.
They should have grabbed you by the ears and shouted in your face "No, you f*cking idiot, you've just been in an accident and have brain trauma. The human mind is a complicated washing machine of emotions, realities and thoughts. You did not meet god, you were tripping out and need to sit the f*ck down and recover from your accident son. Cos that's what the brain does when it goes through extreme experiences. You make the meaning yourself you twit."
And then you wouldn't even be in this forum you'd be moving on with your life. F*ck people get paid to deliver these types of ephiphanys and you're getting it for free in an Atheism forum...

Atheism is simply the absence of belief . Based on what I have read, researched and critically analysed myself, I don't believe there was more to the bible than a story written by primitive folk, with questionable anecdotes. There is no empirical evidence of a god or the supernatural, Just faith by believers. I'm Atheist because of the lack of evidence.
Masoretic texts, the canon of scripture from where the Hebrew bible came was the inspiration for the editions leading to the New Testament. It is interesting to research because it had altered quite a bit from the Hebrew Bible.
There were many gods believed to exist predating the bible.
We have come along way in two thousand years with education about our world. I'm not convinced that billions of believers necessarily make it so .
I'm not here to put down believers, I agree there are idiots who try to point score, its pathetic and it prevents people having a rational discussion .
"Atheism is simply the absence of belief."

That’s significant because a fresh steaming pile of horse sh*t lacks belief too.

Besides this site distorts Scripture. For example.
<quoted text> It does not say sex slave. I answered this before. Under Hebrew law if he has sex with her she is no longer slave but wife.
<quoted text> It does not say they are to be raped and turned into sex slaves. You are pathetic.
.. BM, why do you refuse to debate or respond to my posts ??..

Because you have no evidence, you have to puff up your religious tales with size, omnipresence and magic.
Its like your small d*ck syndrome all over again, except you apply it to imaginary deities.
In science there’s

“matter & anti matter”

then of course there’s,

“it doesn’t matter.”

The third category is where your opinions fall in.

Amusing.

You haven't got a clue as to what you are talking about, but you just prattle on like you do. You must have read the neo-atheist manual.

Get familiar with finality.

Or live your life life like a developing turd that gets flushed. Waste product after others have used your energies for their purposes.

But you fancy yourself an enlightened intellectual.

Very amusing.

It goes to show how self-important the religious mind can become when under delusion, thinking that surviving death was 'meant to be' and has 'significance' outside your vile ego.

Poor Topix atheists. They don't have a clue they have nothing to offer to the human living experience other than getting drugged, drunk, and sitting in front of the boob tube watching science documentaries. And nodding to each other knowingly, acknowledging how what a clued in select few they are.
How thrilling and fulfilling a life they wish to share with real people.
Topix atheists are a phenonema that may reach the status required for a study by the scientific community.
