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.

Nobody's trying to prove that either.
We are simply, as simply as possible so that even you can understand, that free will and an omniscient god are logically contradictory.
That means that they can't both exist simultaneously.
That means at the same time.
What you're not understanding is that free will and an omniscient God are very compatible.

You can't look at your life, you might call it destiny or fate, as a linear thing. It's impossible for humans to fully imagine, but try to imagine endless possibilities of every action you make. Your day would have been different today if you forgot to set your alarm last night. Your life today would be different if you chose a different set of classes in school. Your life today would be different if you didn't get with that one girl, or if you did get with that other girl.

God can see all those possibilities and instant, at any given time. God is not responsible for your actions, you choose the left or the right road when you approach the fork in the road. If you took the right path and your day went smoothly and you found a bag on the ground with a lot of money in it and you were able to help some people out, you'd say that was wonderful and that's just chance. But if you took the left fork in the road and hit a giant bump and flattened your tire and you didn't have a spare, you get all pissed off at God because God didn't tell you to take the right road.

I'm skeptical but you understand.

Why would a 'rational atheist' oxymoron want to argue faith when asked a factual question???
Snicker.
Let's change it up a bit and ask you the same phrased question, but substituting "atheist" with "Christian"?

Why would a 'rational Christian'()an oxymoron) want to argue faith when asked a factual question???

That is more of an accurate question than yours is.

I don't argue "faith" because we all have "faith". I do discuss the ramifications of a false belief in an incomplete religion that has cause people to have false "faith", because many never researched their belief system outside of their belief system.

GO on Ki - answer the question. You can dish it out, but you seem to have a hard time accepting it if turned the other way around.

Hmmmmm....you are starting to sound faithless.

Of course, you need to distance yourself from Phelps in public.

But we've been reading your posts for quite a while now, and you've exposed yourself repeatedly.

You're obsessed with your religion, brainwashed from birth.

Your dad was (is?) a blatant racist, and the apple doesn't fall far from the tree.

Your posts are often racist, homophobic and misogynist, and you feel proud of your vicious nature toward others.

And you are nevertheless self-righteous, because you think your god approves of your bigotry.

Except that you apparently don't go out in public and picket your filthy stuff (you can't be there and at your computer at the same time I guess), I see little difference between you and Phelps.

I hope that's clear, Redneck.

Don't leave your welfare income to become a Bible teacher, just leave your welfare income.
Snicker.
I've never been on welfare, so please don't make up things about me. Actually I've been quite successful in love and jobs.

Do you find comfort in making up things about others? Does your belief system call on you to do this?
- FYI - your tactics of intimidation only work on those who can't feign intimidation. But it does show lack of control, which also can be justified in a trait of confusion. Understandable. After all, you are claim to be a so-called "Christian" (in which you have yet to show that you are. Your posts are very clear.)

Let's see....that would make strike two against you.....*sighs*.....and I really thought you had something to offer in the form of a discussion.

Death comes to everyone. Underline that. Death is the issue. And that is the reason why it does not matter how much knowledge there is, Religion will always be a top subject. Because religion is the only subject that deals with death and God. Science deals with life on earth and knowing. Science cannot compete with death. And that is why Science cannot compete with God. because most people believe after death, then God.
Only stupid people believe in afterlife

atheists are smarter,

if people lived forever the heaven would get Overpopulated eventually,then what?

Okay man, you need to throw me under the bus and put me with the likes of Fred Phelps, fine.

Correct. But, the illusion of free will might be worth giving so that people felt important, and to decide their fate,... godlike.
As an illusion, it is persistent. It isn't something we can remove from ourselves. The most we can do is be aware of it, but that's enough. Every time we have a better picture of reality, we improve our ability to navigate it, to solve problems, and to overcome our perceived limitations.

Come on, man, be honest, you may not agree with the way Phelps and his people go about promoting their "beliefs."

But you certainly share in many of them.

You've made that amply clear over time.

Dodging and dancing and changing the subject will get you nowhere, Redneck.

You are Phelpsian in many, many respects.

Jesus Christ was no cult leader in Christianity is not a cult, it doesn't fit the criteria.
It might fit the Topix Atheist! criteria, but we all know that's extremely biased and doesn't count.

Messianic cults were present within Judaism at least 200 years before your leader was alleged to have been born. He wasn't the first nor the last.

The Jesus! was a cult leader. It took hundreds of years for the "religion" to evolve and emerge from out of the cult.

You know, there are still Branch Davidians to this day, and there are still people that are Branch Davidians(not all)- and some call themselves Koreshians - that still believe the Koresh! was "god".

Sound familiar?

here's the deal Rosy hon: i'm not insinuating that homosexuality is the entire problem in the demise of a society, but i will say that it is definitely a contributing factor and when it's generally accepted and even PROMOTED, it's a sign that the structure is in serious decay things are about to implode.
this will effect those who champion the cause MORE than those who oppose immorality, so you go for it with all your heart, gur!l;-)
