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.

"God" and its variants is the Germanic word for a deity. Wodan is the Angla-Saxon (Germanic) Head God.
Therefore proves that "God" is Wodan.
You believe in Wodan. End of story.

Don’t know much about atheists do you
Here I suggest you look up the definition here
http://dictionary.reference.com/browse/atheis...
or here
http://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/ath...
Please note, there is no god to reject
Please note, The choice is yours, you can do what you want with your carnal desires and if that included masturbating to the babble then so be it
Please note, Again the choice is yours, if your think your god did not want you to advance yourself in this world then you have a serious problems but it does explain why godbots resent advancement.
Please note, what hell to reject? Several babbles do not even mention hell, particularly the older (more original) ones. It is a fairly modern christian scare tactic because that cannot get their “followers” by normal means of discussion

Which atheist meeting did you learn this lie from?
None, I learned that when I still went to church, certainly the latter part is WRITTEN in the babble but feel free to ignore it, it’s what godbots are good at, ignoring the bits if babble that don’t agree with their wet dreams.

As for the god bit try any academic paper on the origins of the word god, hell even most dictionaries will give you the basics. Or if you find actual research to painful try googling “origins of the word god”, I am almost sure you are capable of that.

You see it’s called truth. That’s real truth which is factual, not christian “Truth” that is interpreted to mean, it sounds like I should believe it so it must be true.

And the way you too can learn real truth, real facts is by educating yourself

You are welcome to buy whatever you want, it will make no difference to your ignorant and ill informed loathing of atheism. If you feel you need to spread such lies and abhorrence because you want to believe in a god then don’t be surprised when those you show hatred to respond in kind.

As to lashing out, how? You are the one who spelled “AmeriKKKa” I never even mentioned it. So why do you associate christian scare tactics with America?

When you can come up with any evidence for the existence of any god then he/she/it will rise above the realms of myth. Until then the entire history of human civilisation identifies all gods (except yours of course –(note that little bit of sarcasm)) as myth

Gay people do have an agenda: to be treated equally before the law. Horrible, isn't it?
You should get out more.

"In May, 2004, the NGLTF (National Lesbian and Gay Task Force) announced a new alliance with the Woodhull Freedom Foundation (WFF), a sexual liberation group that seeks to abolish laws against prostitution; overturn “age of consent” laws protecting children from adult sexual predators; and seeks to legalize homosexual sodomy in public restrooms and
parks. The WFF also seeks to ban all abstinence-only sex education materials in our nation’s public schools."

Outdated rhetoric?
Excuse me, lovey, I am not as tied to fashionable thinking and rhetoric as you are. I kinda learned to think for myself a long time ago. With it goes the terms, etc. The difference between understanding things and and just regurgitating words.
BTW, you have some alphabet soup or something stuck on your chest there. Here's a napkin.
:-)
Have fun playing your role, dear.
Hi, Dave. Good to hear from you.

A few new facts shared with us by Atheos Topicanix since you were here:

1. The Pope is an atheist.(Christine)

2. Stalin was not an atheist.(Christine)

3. All people are atheists.(Wilderide)

4. The National Gay and Lesbian Task Force has no agenda.(Wilderide)

5. "Equal Rights" means abolishing age-of-consent laws so gay men can have sex with little boys.(Wilderide)

That's about it. Oh,...dinosaurs had no DNA.(Blue Baboon)

No, you claimed the Church and the Pope accept Darwinism, not the much simpler proposition that evolution occurs.

Then, instead of admitting you were mistaken, you have spent weeks trying to defend the claim that they accept Darwinism, which is a materialist proposition.

The Pope and the Church are not materialists or atheists.

They would have to be so for your claim to be correct.

So, in essence, you are claiming the Pope and the Catholic Church are atheist.

And thus I mock you.

I cited 3 – that’s THREE – T – H – R – E – E - popes that accept evolution and supplied links to letters they had written proving this.

You are the one with the social Darwinism fetish, don’t blame me for your word games.

And then you had to lie that I claimed the pope was atheist, and despite the REPEATED request for evidence the only way you could save face was to continue the lie and ignore those requests.

And now after several weeks of your bare faced lying you have changed your plea from “ChristineMc^2 says the pope is atheist” to “in essence, you are claiming the Pope and the Catholic Church are atheist.”

And you have the gall to mock me?

You must be a godbot of the highest order and considering the mockery that godbots vomit as a matter of course, being ranked above the rest takes a special and profound degree of mockery.

Hell this is almost as groundbreaking buskism as when you claimed that youtube was evidence of god

I though you said you were bottling out of this Stalin/religion argument? So we have another buck lie

The discussion was satanism, not Stalin and not buck word games.

If you can’t keep up then you have problems.

But you want to counter a life and considerable incontrovertible evidence with a few years, nationalism and hearsay then go for it, it’s what you have been doing for a couple of weeks now and getting nowhere.

I have read Dialectical and Historical Materialism and I remember nowhere that said “I am atheist” or similar.

And as I remember the only reference to god was by someone else.

Just looked up a transcription and could find no reference to you claims.

You claimed the Popes accept Darwinism. They do not.

Your claim is false, and nothing you cited supports it.

If you cite 100 Popes agreeing that evolution occurs, you will not have supported your claim that the Popes accept Darwinism.

That would require the Popes to be atheists. The Popes are not atheists.
