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.

You see, I'm not an atheist.
But, how then do you know your religion is the true one?
If everyone thinks there's is right, then most everyone is wrong.
How can you not care if you have the right one?

Thanks for admitting that you have no evidence.
Yes, and yes-- exactly.

They [godbots] have no evidence.

They are self-admitted insane people.

Speak for yourself, butthole. I have a need to believe.
So you admit you are insane?

You have a pathological need to believe in something for which there is no evidence, which is, by definition, insane behavior?

There are some lovely drugs that can help you with this affliction.

It is that innate awareness that anal sex is unnatural, harmful and gross that you are calling 'homophobic'. Homosexuals possess that awareness whether they admit it or not.
You will never change that sense. You can't repress it. Even if you demand that people not speak about it, they WILL think it.
It is that single, simple point of reality that I keep provoking homosexuals with. The demand to be honest in all things. And that is not a little thing. Denial is deadly.
One reason is, it requires denial in more things. which brings us to the monstrous assertion that a duplicate gendered couple is the same as marriage. Or even more outrageous, two lesbians are better parents than mom and dad!
This is the core of my position on here.
I challenge anyone to give me an honest, rational response.
Your obsession with azz-sex is duly noted, Mr Flaming Gay-homosexual.

Nobody cares who you choose to boff, silly-billy.

You did not read my WHOLE post, moron.

I addressed that in the line about enjoying the fruits of a relationship.

Are you seriously a moron, or were you just deliberately trying to LIE?

I'm betting you wanted to LIE-- it's what you do best after all

----------

It's always better-- there are only a couple of things worth doing on your knees...

... proposing marriage is one.

... enjoying the resultant relationship is another.

The rest of the time? Being on your knees is more akin to slave-work...

So you DO believe in Thor, Set, Zeus, Imhotep and all the rest?

Or are you an **atheist** with respect to those gods?

Hmmm?

What's that? You were just **lying** again?

We know.

Smirk.
That you are a flaming gay-homosexual?

Yes, we get that already.

And no, it's not an insult-- it **is** an observation of your obsession.

I see nothing wrong with you being a flaming gay-homosexual.

I do pity you, in that you seem to hate yourself so. That's unhealthy-- even for a hategodbot like you.

No that's not the definition. Maybe the Topix Atheist! definition, but that doesn't count.

Insanity. n. mental illness of such a severe nature that a person cannot distinguish fantasy from reality, cannot conduct her/his affairs due to psychosis, or is subject to uncontrollable impulsive behavior.

I appreciate your response!

Human anal sex, straigh and gay, has been a part of nature for ever. Your claim that it is unnatural is, by definition, wrong..
On a physical basis, anal sex is clearly wrong. The anus does not function as a receptacle for intercourse. It is why you have a vagina and an anus.

Moreover, it's sole design is to evacuate waste, hence the sense of 'gross'.

You are right, anal sex is present in nature. But it is the exception to the rule. Often used as a means of domination. Hence the human insult, "Sit on it".

<quoted text>
Nope, people don't 'possess awareness' of your wrong statement. Why would they?.
I find it hard to take that as an honest statement. Not only based on what I point out above, but the fact that the discussion of anal sex is clearly so uncomfortable in this debate about marriage. But fact of the matter is, this post came as a response to someone affirming homosexuals, but finding this aspect 'gross'.

<quoted text>
But, you are not being honest when you state falsehoods as true. There is noithing unnatural about anal sex (or oral, or boob sex or hand jobs...). It is you who is in denial about this, not others..
Those acts don't equate to anal sex. Those options did not spark the national investment in 'safe sex' did they? Nor do they erupt as an issue like anal sex does.
.
Six_Of_One wrote:
<quoted text>
How did you jump from the wrong claim that anal sex is unnatural to claims about how marriage is defined or the subjective comparisons of different people's parenting skills? What you said here is NOT rational by any standard.
.
That's strange, in discussions about homosexuality and marriage, those issues are often tied together...

The argument is that homosexuality is a normal orientation that equates to heterosexuality in all things. Except intercourse. Except the union of diverse/duplicate genders. Except procreation.

I appreciate your sincere effort, but I respectfully disagree.

We know.
One cannot be atheist "with respect to other gods".

One is either theist or atheist.

I believe in God, which makes me theist. No definition of theist says a theist must believe in all gods or is partially atheist. One cannot be partially atheist or partially theist.

Unless of course you wanna drag out the Topix Atheist! "atheistic theism" again.

Do you?

Yes, it is insanity to believe in anything for which there is zero evidence.

Even **you** would agree, that a man who talks to his hairbrush, and asks his brush for advice, and believes his brush answers his pleas?

Even **YOU** would believe such a man is insane.

But if you remove the hairbrush, it suddenly becomes NOT insane?

Hardly-- it's an even worse level of insanity.

Do you?
If you believe in ONLY ONE god, out of the MILLIONS created by humans?

You are, by definition, MOSTLY atheist.

In fact?

You are about 0.01% THEIST.

And you are 99.99% ATHEIST.

Just so you know.
