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 might want to reevaluate that statement...
Jesus does not like liars and I'm sure you wouldn't want to offend.
The earliest documented institutions aiming to provide cures were ancient Egyptian temples. In ancient Greece, temples dedicated to the healer-god Asclepius, known as Asclepieia.
Institutions created specifically to care for the ill also appeared early in India. Fa Xian, a Chinese Buddhist monk who travelled across India ca. 400 CE, recorded in his travelogue that
"The heads of the Vaisya [merchant] families in them [all the kingdoms of north India] establish in the cities houses for dispensing charity and medicine. All the poor and destitute in the country, orphans, widowers, and childless men, maimed people and cripples, and all who are diseased, go to those houses, and are provided with every kind of help, and doctors examine their diseases. They get the food and medicines which their cases require, and are made to feel at ease; and when they are better, they go away of themselves."

There you go.

Genuine Christianity™ has exactly nothing new to contribute.

What a surprise.

The earliest know to Europeans, because who gives a shit about the other half of the world, right? You're basing all of this on limited knowledge. Atheism doesn't give people hope. People do. All the hope in the world won't help much if it exists because of a delusion.
Indeed.

Hope in something that is entirely false, is a trap-- and when the falsehood is discovered, causes far more harm, than not having the false hope at all.

Really? Interesting. And not *that* surprising-- there was limited interaction between North American and Europe before Columbus.

I disagree. Your incorrect assumption of Matthew 6:6 tells me that you don't understand it very well. You read it verbatim, sentence by sentence without caring about any kind of structure or context. In other words, you only read the surface and then scream "No! It's all a lie!!"

But if you want evidence, go back and look at the time span in between the bulk of my posts. You'll notice a big chunk of RR, then a void, then another big chunk, etc.

RR didn't used to have two hour time spans between posts....

Correct. It's an utter lack of belief or faith in bullshyt (god). You cannot base morals on a **lack** of belief.

You need something else, like Secular Humanism.

It’s a belief that embraces nothingism.
Lie. Atheism is not belief in "nothingism" (which isn't even a word).

Atheism simply means the person does not fall for the god bullshyt.

That's it.
Eagle 12 wrote:
There’s no code of conduct or benevolent duty with being Atheist. Nor is there any required standard of principles for them to follow.
Correct-- except for the not-believing-in-insane-concep ts-like-god part.

You keep leaving that out.

I suppose because you *do* believe in the insane god-idea.

That explains why you keep getting it wrong...

The belief in nothingism produces no compassionate felling for their fellow man.
There is no such thing as "belief in nothingism".

More of your insanity?

That seems reasonable.
Eagle 12 wrote:
For example Atheist have no code of conduct that bans lying, deceitfulness, treachery, treason, false accusations, deception, theft to name a few. Some Atheist certainly are law abiding and good citizens. I’m just saying Atheism as a whole has no code of conduct.
Look up Secular Humanism.

It's a superior moral code to your evil bible in every way possible.

The lack of benevolent Atheist organizations in any serious numbers is evidence that Atheism is a self centered belief system. Atheist have no code of conduct or sworn duty to promote benevolence.
Secular Humanism.

<quoted text>No, Luke says not to judge others, because you will be judged by God with the same criteria you judge others. "For with the measure you use, it will be measured to you."
I know. I'm not trying to pass internal judgment on anyone. You have never seen me write anything like "you are going to hell" or "you will burn in hell".

You haven't seen that from me and you won't see that from me, because I understand that Jesus forbids humans to pass eternal judgment on others.

If I was reading Matthew verbatim then I'd need to be fluent in Greek. As it is I'm trusting in the accuracy of someone else's translation into English. But aside from that, you are saying I'm wrong without presenting your case of what it does say and mean. So I have no reason to believe that you have an alternative explanation.

It's just the way it is. Can you start believing in Santa Claus again?

Same thing here. I'd need a major head injury to start believing in fairy tales again.
I never believed in Santa Claus, so to say I could start believing in Santa Claus "again" would not be possible.

Since you don't believe in Santa Claus, which I assume you're comparing to your lack of belief in God, do you spend an equal amount of time arguing with people about the existence of Santa Claus or the validity of his "list"? Do you argue with people that he doesn't actually check it twice?

I really don't care which of the insane asylums (church) you belong to -- it hardly matters.

More likely-- you are **such** an assholeabuser, that you've been kicked out of them all.

That fits all the available facts.
