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.

<quoted text>You're just flappin your gums again as usual, never really understanding what you're talking about. You are once again posting in ignorance. North Korea is basically a Christian based country, not an Atheistic one. The primary religion in North Korea is JUCHE. Juche is a religion and 24 million adhere to it making it the 5th largest religion in the world.
Juche is modeled after Christianity, thats why it is considered a "Christian based" country. Instead of God the father, the Juche religion worships Kim II-Sung North Korea's first dictator who died in 1994, yet continues to rule as North Korea's "Eternal President." Juche teaches that upon death you will be reunited with Kim II-Sung and be with him forever, not unlike being with God in heaven.
Before Kimm II-Sung, North Korea was the site of an early 20th century Christian revival. There were so many Christians and churches in the now capital city of Pyongyang, that is was called "The Jerusalem Of The East."
Kim II-Sung recognized the power of Christianity and wanted it directed at himself, so he took Christianity and remover God, Jesus, and the holy spirit and set up himself his wife and son as the trinity and called it Juche
This is STILL the religion that predominates North Korea, every household MUST have a special wall were pictures of Kim II-Sung MUST be hung and prayer to twice a day.\\
Now does this sound anything at all like Atheism?
Educate yourself before posting false information, you'll look much less..........being polite here) intelligent.
Kim-Jong Un is an Atheist Doctor. And he fed his Uncle to the dogs. It's well known for some time about the Human Rights Violations in North Korea. And that good ole boy fellow Atheist of yours likes to starve his people while his fat *ss eats steak every evening.

Yeah, he's one of yours so stop trying to say he something else, he's Atheist. Don't it make you proud?

There is public support for such actions here as there are a few dog owners that are quite irresponsible. Had a Great Pyrenees on the corner that terrorized people for three years before the county did something. After it and its collie like buddy attacked a bicycle rider going to work.

I recently almost had a dog kill me cat. It was a stray that we allowed in our yard. I thought I had everything under control but the dog busted through the screen door and damn near got my kitty cat. I ran in the house just as the dog's mouth was about the crush the cat's body. I jumped on this big ole Boxer Pit mix mutt and grabbed him by the jaw, rolled him over and pinned him to the ground. I held him there until my son could get the cat unglued from the screen door and my wife to get a rope and a collar.
Long story short, we sent his ass to the pound. And honestly, whether or not he got adopted is of no consequence to me.
I understand what you're going through with those pesky mutts. But please, if you feel you have to shoot them, don't wound them. Kill them so they don't suffer needlessly.
Not long ago my brother’s dog attacked a little girl that wondered onto his property. It’s some kind of a part Pit Bull mix. He lives out in the country so he decided it was time to put a end to the dog’s life. He had his son come over with a 1911 45 handgun.

My nephew shot the dog point blank in the head. The dog went down, one shot, one kill. So they loaded up the body of the dead carcass and threw it in the back of the truck.
Then drove off a couple of miles down the road and dumped the body in the woods.

They came home and washed the blood out of the truck and that was that. Until about three days later the dog was on my brothers front porch, alive and well. Apparently the bullet hit the side of the dog’s fleshly part of its mouth and went out the other side.

The concussion from the blast wave knocked the dog clean out making it look like it was dead.[laughing], I renamed the dog “Lazarus.” Because it came back from the dead after three days. They decided to let Lazarus live after their botched execution.

The dog was fine and no long term injury from the gunshot.

Got some denial going there Darwin.
Two elements combined, and are once again, that brought the AIDS epidemic on gays.
1. Immoral sex.
2. Anal sex.
Now, explain why AIDS is spreading in Africa among heterosexuals, but did not in the USA. Originally heteros were primarily contracted AIDS by infected blood from gays.
Hey, by the way, I like Darwin!
At it's most basic essence, marriage is a cross culture constraint on evolutionary mating behavior. Ss couples are a defective failure of mating behavior, making ss marriage an oxymoron.
Smile.
What do you define as "immoral sex"? If your definition is based on the Bible, then I reject it. The Bible is one of the most immoral books around. Using it as a standard of morality is a big mistake.

And you seem to be in denial that HIV is passed on by heterosexual sex as well. You seem to be focused only upon anal sex. Is there some personal passion going on there?

Plus you seem to have a view that the sole purpose of sex is for procreation. If you would pull your head out and actually think about your own experiences, do you have sex solely, or even predominantly, for the purpose of procreation? Or do you mostly have sex for the purpose of bonding emotionally with your mate?

And you are bringing up evolution to support your argument. Even though your view of evolution seems quite a bit off, the fact you seem to be supporting the idea of evolution makes you almost unique among the theistic posters on the thread.

Another explanation is that the dog was a fundamentalist christian; the bullet went through the skull with no meaningful effect since the skull was empty to begin with.........:

I absolutely detest lap dogs.

I am not going to kill them, or leave them with deep wounds to get infected. If they get wounded their owners can get them patched up. 3 pumps and a pellet at 50 foot or more will hurt them, but not as much as them killing my cats. Had a Chow a long time ago that charged a yard cat she grew up with less than 10 feet from me. Punctured the cat's lungs and it took a couple of minutes to die. The Chow was put down a few years later for similar behavior.

I spent several years keeping dogs confined to the yard even if they didn't want to be confined. That goes against everything I believe in, but is a necessary thing when living in a residential area. I didn't choose those dogs, just some I wound up having to take care of.

What I keep thinking of doing but haven't yet is cast wax pellets. 10 pumps and that will light the little bastards asses right up and shouldn't break the skin.

I can't get the sight of that fat assed Chihuahua mix trotting off yesterday. What a lovely target.

The sound of squealing Chihuahuas appeals to me.

I’m not saying you weren’t stalked because these things do happen. I also have been stalked as a method of intimidation by a deviant who thought he was a mafia Godfather.

I made it be known in the community this man was stalking me. And I also made it known to him. If anything was to happen to me or my family he was going to be the main suspect. The entire community was aware what he was doing.

I also let him know. If by any chance guns came into play. I was not going to shoot to kill. I’d plan to aim right for his navel because there’s already a nice clean hole to start with. Then the bullet will travel to the spinal cord and permanently sever it.

The stalking stopped.

LOL. You probably think this because you don't know any more about atheism than Buck does. Rather than it some serious thought and try to learn the perspective of another, you meekly accept the definitions given to you by your religious authority figures.

Here's a news flash...the things your religious authority figures tell you are self serving.
