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.

No evidence for god , why are you wasting your time in the Atheism forum trying to defend your fraud?
It's downright fun trying to communicate with people that have the minds of goats.

Do you believe in God?

Did you know that in December 2013 human trafficking, especially of young girls is sadly high? Forget the same old crap you here on tv of whoever is for or against something and trying to relate it to slavery of a bygone era. What church stands against this? Or people being addicted to drugs? Point is evil is on this earth. Some do the best we can where we can. Btw this is the first I've heard of what you speak and while I'm only one I'm against it. Here is some info:

I think when you openly accuse any Christian that does wrong of wrong-doing in "the name of" Christianity but not saying the same towards atheist's wrong-doings is a double standard...
Nope. many theists openly admitted/admit that they are killing in the name of God..

No atheists has killed anyone in the name of Atheism.

The issue is much more complicated than your ideological mantras.

As you will read there are some rather stiff penalties imposed by the religion, yet the practice continues due to power and control. Secularistic societies, even the "democratic" ones, are full of the power and control freaks. Takes ambition for such to run for office. Remove the religious restrictions and guess what will happen.
Yet our secular society has less crime, less people in prison as well as less homelessness and child gangs.

We also don't have religious people killing groups of people or picketing funerals.

We also have national, free healthcare, for everyone.

I suppose you think that's just terrible.

You are a moron or a liar.

I am just trying to figure out which.

There are hundreds of millions of Christian Communists that prove you wrong. Communism is an economic and political doctrine that has nothing to do with theism or atheism.

I like that word, subvert. A few weeks ago I was reading an account of a woman that was ultimately put to the flames and burned alive because she was a Christian. This was in England hundreds of years ago btw. The church leaders at the time gave her one more chance to 'repent'. She refused, called them subverters of the truth of Christ and then she was killed.

So.
Explain how, if having your god is so useful as a "moral guide", why so many pastors and priests are caught raping little kids.
Hmmm?
Exactly **how** does that work again? Your god is supposedly this magical inspiration, right?
Yet?
So very many of your "men of god" have been caught raping little kids...!
Why?
Pedophilia is a concern in all organizations including secular ones.

Let me give you an example.“The Second Mile,” was a nonprofit organization for underprivileged youth, providing help for at-risk children and support for their parents in Pennsylvania.

Founded by a popular assistant coach at Pennsylvania State University under Joe Paterno. This was not a religious charity but a secular one. The entire nation was shocked to find the founder was sexually abusing youth in this charity. His name was Jerry Sandusky.

We hear all the time in our secular school teachers in our public schools violating their trust and sexually abusing teens and children. Bob it’s a concern everywhere. It shouldn’t ever happen in religious organizations but it has happened. The same goes for secular public schools and every organization.

In every grove of apple tree’s there’s going to be a few bad apples. But what is important is the yield of good apples far outnumber the bad ones. All the bad apples have to be tossed to rot in the earth.

Atheist communism does far worse in terms of murder than any religion ever has.
Put that in your bong.
Militant Atheist always overlook the hundreds of millions that have died under communism.

They love to point out the deaths in religious wars but totally deny the millions under atheistic communism.

But we are accustomed to their hypocritical assertions which is so common among militant atheist.

Not a single Christian Church has condemned the Christian atrocities currently occurring around the world but most noticeable in Africa.

I bet there are tens of millions of American Christians who would like to see the death penalty for anyone who isn't a "real Christian".

<quoted text> Hey funky gal, although Pastors and Church people who prey off failed people repulses me, The ideal is to help those who have failed, are fearful, wounded etc. Jesus did say he didn't come for all the "good healthy" people, rather to seek and save the lost. The great physician. Can you dispute that many were helped and went on to live a better life?
I'm not sure how much time you've spent with the homeless. Many of them are struggling with mental illness without the family or financial support to help them. Many of them are addicted to one drug or another. Many are teenagers and young adults who escaped abusive situations. They don't need Jesus. They need a society that understands the issue and stops trying to sweep them under the rug as if they don't exist.

The USA is a secular society, Little lost Luci. Mucho, mucho larger and more diverse than your "our society".

You provincials are so limited in your perspectives.

I am willing to bet you have more than your share of nutcases in OZ, religious or otherwise.

In my honest opinion, because homosexuality isn't 'normal' and some people that are gay find it embarrassing.
It aint necessarily so wrote:
You think gays are closeted because of themselves, not because of Christian doctrine regarding homosexuality?
No sir, that's why I'd didn't write that.
As far as homosexuality being abnormal, please note that across the animal kingdom, it is seen far more commonly than religion.
Fail.

Mankind has surpassed the animal kingdom in many different ways. Language, art, science, religion, etc. All naturally. You can't compare what animals do to what humans do.
Christians have defined homosexual as abnormal, and have shamed and guilted many into self-loathing and hiding themselves from their families, friends, neighbors, employers, customers, coworkers, and constituents.
Just Christians, huh?

I think that's your bias talking.

Loose Fur is of the same mold.
Total immunity to evidence.
Loose Fur denies the atheist motivation of mass murderers like Stalin, then states the same atheist motivation for herself.
I don't know how to get through to them.

I think your "immunity to evidence" is spot on.
