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 would think that prayer and the Holy Spirit would be enough. It looks like they trust science to protect them more. Go figure.
These are the areas where the truth about faith shines through its threadbare fabric. If faith is the substance of things hoped for, then faith has no substance. They put their trust in GPS.

I think that is fortunate.

Agree with whom? I didn't say that. Please don't post your religious ideas as if I said them. I don't expect businesses to care about anything but profits, and I reject the idea that an object of desire should be called a god or that its pursuit be called worshiping.
As for money and false gods, community churches are also businesses, which is why there are as many of them as banks, fast food restaurants and gas stations.
This also shows you don't know much about business. A good business will of course care about profits but also people. Its employees and its customers. My wife works at one of the top ones in the nation as ranked by its own employees. This is a public board and each of us can post our thoughts. It is my thinking that for man he will either serve the one and only true God or a false one. For many that false god is money ( mammon, riches) Don't like what I say? Scroll.

That happens a lot with Christians - calling hate love.

But they come by it honestly. They are taught that their god loved us so much he built a hell, staffed it with a monster, crucified somebody, and said that if we didn't worship him, he'd keep us alive after death and torture us, too - forever.

How's that for perfect love?

It's worse. Parts of the world didn't hear about the crucified one for some 600 years afterward.

That's a lot of souls filing into hell who had no chance.

And worst of all - he created the scorned woman.

Perhaps Robert Hunter. The meaning is subject to interpretation. If you do not plant love you get nothing in return. I did not write Garcia wrote those words. I simply wrote you were quoting Garcia and you wrote Garcia did sing them.

Your atheism explains nothing. Has no answers so you do believe in nothing and as a result have nothing of value to offer. How can you believe in many things and at the same time believe nothing? It is not so much a matter of faith as it is historical fact. It is like saying it is a matter of faith George Washington was the first President. If one believes in God, which is perfectly reasonable, miracles are possible and by definition rare. You exercise faith every time you get into a car where another person is driving. It is impossible to live life without some form of faith. Take a cab is an exercise in faith. So i don 't know what your problem is with faith. You have faith you will cease to exist at death. Its a displaced faith which forfeits ultimate justice. It is faith none the less.
