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.

And I will admit that there are many, many contradictions in the Bible. Thank yo for admitting that.

But I think that going right to the start and showing it has problems from the get-go is a worthwhile point.

So why don't you tell us your favorite contradiction in the Bible?
When someone does not understand something, it is easy to place the basis for that lack of comprehension outside of oneself...

Hence your contradictory argument.

Next time you get stuck, ask the one who inspired it to explain it to you. That or continue in a determined ignorance...

<quoted text>I could absolutely advice him on many of his creations. And i won't even charge him a consultation fee. So God, listen closely:

1.) Equip humans with the same advantages you gave whales and dolphins, one hole to breath from and the other to eat. This way thousands of deaths from choking while eating will be eliminated.

2.) You started with a good idea but never finished it, our skeletal structure should continue down from the sternum to protect our vital organs, did you lose the directions numbnuts?

3.) You failed to supply us with an effective defense mechanism for all those billions of parasitic organism you thought was such a good idea to flood the earth with. Don't you care about our safety and wellbeing? Guess not!!!

4.) Whats with wiring our eyes backwards and upside down, you stoned again? Not a very good job on the joints either, they wear out much to soon, and......Why the loss of bone density as we age, are you just trying to be a prick?

5.) Knowing full well the gravitational effects on the planet, who in their right mind would create a being that is basically a huge fragile bag of liquid, a mer fall can kill us. You really don't give a shit do you? See George Carlin was right!!!

Thats all for now, you really are a complete hack at creating, why don't you try your hand at some really cool natural disasters, you know like flooding the entire planet.........Oh wait, you already did that, and just to constantly remind us what a prick you are, you supplied us with rainbows.
Instead of whining, how about thanking Him for giving you the privilege of breathing...?

You do seem concerned with the moral absolute not to lie, you know that is a moral standard that is derived from Christianity.
As a proclaimed atheist, why do you keep making Christian moral judgements...?
I am not an atheist.
I am not a Christian either.

You need to widen your theological research.

You need to expand your education.

Honesty was respected long before Jesus was born. It is respected and expected in almost every culture on the planet of the last 6000 years.

Sorry, but lying isn't a Christian moral standard. Lying was frowned upon before Christians came about. Look what happened to that Jesus dude for lying about being the messiah.

I love these pseudoscience/conspiracy sites. They come up with some interesting perspectives. Watch some of the oddities on the video.

HAARP is real and based upon patents by this man.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bernard_Eastlund

http://www.padrak.com/ine/HAARP97.html

Basically HAARP uses a technology to burn holes in the ionosphere using EM waves. It heats the ions and they expand, plus it changes the polarities of them. You can channel energy by creating differing polarities and providing a conductive path for them to follow. It's like being in a bubble and bouncing streams of energy to where you want. You phase a positive spot there, and a negative over there, then provide a charge carrier, like those chemtrails may be, to provide a path it can start to follow. Kind of like creating lightning, but on a much wider scale. This is done from the ground, and can be done on a global scale.

This is not theoretical science. You will note there is considerable investment in it already. Something works.

http://rezn8d.net/2012/10/22/haarp-2013-budge...

You learn things from studies of this nature. That is how technology works. This is digging into the real goody of how this planet operates.

BTW, you are in the middle of that, so to speak. It's a law of thermodynamics thingy.

I'm not get sucked back into your never ending repetitive nonsense
Find someone else. I knew responding the first time was a mistake
Methinks you need to walk a bit further yet. Just sayin.
