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.

Nope.
You're welcome to believe whatever claptrap you want to believe.
Keep it out of our public education system, out of our politics, out of our science and out of our laws.
How many people have been burned at the Christian stake because their CORRECT science went against biblical dogma?
How much farther would we be advanced if other great thinkers hadn't been afraid-rightfully so-of meeting the same fate?
....See , now we're at loggerheads , if God is our Creator and everything we have comes from Him , who in their right mind would exclude Him from our daily lives ...?

You are mistaken , we weren't vicious killers astronomers and philosophers weren't murdered for having different points of view , the ones murdered were actively and unrepentantly preaching a different gospel ..does government have the right to quell rebellions ..?

That's very true. I've posted links several times offering evidence that Christian schools produce far more intelligent graduates than secular, state funded schools.

They choose to ignore that, they always do.

I don't subscribe to Norse mythology ....never , have I uttered " Odins balls " when under duress ...

Indeed not-- both are equally fictitious.

And both are equally selfish; a true reflection of your typical Genuine Christian™, from who's image these gods were fashioned.

A truly sad little man, Redneck, is someone who is a bald-faced liar and cheats his employer out of an honest days' work for an honest days' wages. Your lies and dishonesty are your own.
An even sadder little man, Redneck, is someone who has such a severe compulsion to post on Topix that he spends upwards of 12 hours a day doing it, to the virtual exclusion of all else that is worthwhile, valuable, and within the scope of an emotionally and mentally health person.
You are a fraud, and so deluded that you think two distinctly different people are one and the same.
Pitiful small man..........
Indeed-- R.R. is a sad specimen.

He is a tribute to his sad little hate-cult.

Thanks!
I have been dutifully appointed to expose fraud in the workplace; all of us pay, by way of higher prices for goods and services, when people cheat their employer out of a decent days' wages. It is no different than employee theft of a business' inventory, or shoplifting, or embezzlement; they're all costs the business have to make up somewhere.
It is particularly appalling when those committing these thefts are hiding under the guise of "high Christian morals".
Public service announcements will continue sporadically until further notice!
One of many reasons why I'm self-employed-- my time is *always* my own.

Sorry, but it looks like your Christian brethren have beat you to that, all in the name of hate the sin, love the sinner:

Just out of curiosity, are you seeking to unseat the Redneck for most ridiculous and vulgar poster on this and the PTAG thread?
And old story (from 2012), but typical of your average Genuine Christian™.

That is one of several reasons why it's just another hate-cult.

I wonder if that "pastor" is still leading that church into sin?(hate) How hypocritical of him-- his own Jewsus commanded him to **love** his enemies-- not fence them in with the intent to **murder** them...

God can deal with it by removing sin from the earth.
That also means removing everything which is attached to sin.
Which essentially means your own destruction.
That being the case, and that you also want it wrapped up, are you still willing that God stops holding back his justice, that He should give up on you and end it all?
Wow... your god is 100% evil.

You **know** that, right?

You worship an evil monster-god?

"No man ever believes that the Bible means what it says; he is always convinced that it says what he means." ~George Bernard Shaw
Hell?
Any person capable of the most basic critical thinking should be able to see very easily that such an idea of a physical paradise where there is no suffering is a completely illogical concept.
I would like to know how it is physically possible for a world with no suffering to exist. And I would specifically like to know whether carnivores would continue to eat herbivores, and how both could exist in a world with no suffering.
I am not interested in talking about metaphysics or fantasy-physics or any bald assertions about God.
I am only interested in the logical consistency of these ill logical claims about paradise.
I wonder whether 'the faithful ' have thought critically about the paradise they claim exists, or whether all of their argumentation about physics and metaphysics leads to nowhere but a concept of paradise which is fundamentally illogical and impossible to begin with.
LMAO!

You used "the faithful" and "thought critically" in the same sentence.

LMAO!

If these people could **actually** think critically?

They would not be religious, would they?

LMAO!

The Maniraptora line shows it to be so, as does the dna of all avian species.
But many new species that blur the lines between the two species have been unearthed in China in recent discoveries. When you get to those that you can't be sure if they are truly a bird or really a dinosaur , there is no doubt where they came from.
Indeed there is not-- the line between bird and dinosaur is unbroken, if you look at the DNA trail.

These are **facts** that prove the evolution of dinos into modern birds.

There is no getting around them-- without lying, of course.

Even though scientists can't find the "switched-off" genes that control dinosaur-like traits?

Huh...
