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're a liar.
I'm skeptical of science.

For example, when faster than light neutrinos were reported, I was skeptical of that. Turned out to be justified skepticism. I'm skeptical of the new finding about detecting the signature of gravity waves from the Big Bang, as are all of the scientists who will be attempting to verify the findings. I'm skeptical of the accuracy of the machine I use and I'm skeptical of the accuracy of the measuring instruments that I use to verify the accuracy of the machines I use.

I could go on, but you are a waste of time, so that will have to do.

Question everything.

I am not sure the Bible proclaims free will. My understanding is that free will was an invention of early Roman Catholic theologians to account for certain aspects of their view on sin.

Judaism is full of Rabbinical discussions of the contradiction between freewill and omniscience. The issue (as in most of Judaism) has never been "set in stone".

You are correct though that the RCC "set in stone" that there is both and that (although impossible) it isn't a contradiction. The RCC was wrong. It is a contradiction. They simply make shit up and say "It is possible because God is omnipotent". Its a moronic stance like most religious dogma.

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.
I don't argue 'faith' with known facts because it's a conflict of terms.

I submit that both believers and atheists argue faith from a point of ignorance. Deliberate ignorance on the part of atheists who use arguments that the answers to are available to anyone willing to look.

Moreover, when I bring up aspects of faith that have facts embedded,'rational atheist' oxymorons like you can only mount scoffs, shunning, silence and shit slinging. Or, as in this case, change the subject from a scientific affirmation of God to a personal attack embedded in bigotry towards Christianity.

Just a note. There is a difference between faith and denial.

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.
Please don't make things up about what I've said.

I've never 'claimed to be a Christian'. I have claimed to be a redeemed cynic who remains barbarian. How would you know a Christian anyway, you can't even distinguish between success in love or work.

Now, I posted an article about the Big Bang indicating the existence of God. All you have been able to do is mount (poorly so) a bigoted, hateful troll attack against me along with a vain attempt to change the subject.

Do you understand that rather than putting my faith on the line, that article cuts your claim of 'rational atheist' off at the knees and confirms your status as a 'rational atheist' oxymoron???

And yet you give up that which you could keep (the ability to think) in order to gain something that is imaginary.

And you lie to yourself that you are wise to do so.
