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.

<quoted text>Praise Jesus. His design was so intelligent he put on foreskins so mohels would have to perform non-consensual mutilations on infants while suckling the blood from their newly shorn phalluses. It's such an intelligent design. Whoops, wait, not that flap of skin! What was I thinking? Cut it off! Ewwwwww!
Speaking of which. Who was Jesus' mohel? After all, Rabbis are scrupulous record keepers and you'd think after having that bright star light up your work space and being able to smoke all that myrrh, the old nebbish would have written something down about the condition of the Royal Peen.

I don't expect you to know the difference. Talk about something you understand. Maybe jerking off?
That's not how it went down, Schmenge. Whoops, sorry, going down is a trigger word for you, eh, con. We never had that conversation. You inadvertently admitted it because you aren't smart enough to paint yourself in the corner.

Thanks. That's the Wilderice we know - blurt out an assertion, get it knocked back in your face, then deflect to a different complaint.
All is well in Topix Atheist Land.
Sorry Captain Pigeon-Chess, but nothing but your BS was "knocked back in my face". Like I said, if you want to believe in ID, reincarnation, astrology, or whatever, go for it. But expect to be mocked if you bring it up. Sowwy.

There is nothing wrong with critical thinking skills BTW. You really should consider it as an alternative. It's alot better than delusion. Really. It will mean giving up the pretense of knowing everything, but it opens up the possibility of learning and growth.

Wait, but I though Buck said that ID was backed up by the scientific evidence. Doesn't he know that a scientific hypothesis must be falsifiable? That's pretty basic stuff.
Hmmmm. This is really undermining Buck's credibility.
He already has zero credibility. The Great Reincarnating Energy of Piscataway has spoken.

Notice how he won't give the name of his esteemed scientist nor did he offer any evidence. Just silly, delusional assertions. What a crappy way to waddle through life. Oh, that and pretending to be a tough guy on the internet. That's even more pathetic.

That's not something I've researched, but an interesting thought.

I would suspect it's true if morbidly obese.

Okay sheesh, let me rephrase the question since you didn't understand it.

Why would a person be ashamed of being gay?

The judgement is meant to remind us that we will have to answer for what we do in life. The judgment isn't for God, it's for us.
Look at how societies act without God, look at the cesspool of a place America has become without God prevalent in society. People that don't believe in God don't even consider eternal judgement so there's nothing to control their actions or curb their every whim.
I think if you would look at some statistics on irreligion, you will see the evidence that not having God prevalent in society does not cause societies to become cesspools; in fact, just the opposite seems to be true.

Three links:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Irreligion_by_co...

http://www.therichest.com/expensive-lifestyle...

http://www.cilalp.org/spip.php...

The Gallup analysts Steve Crabtree and Brett Pehlam say the level of religiosity is interconnected with the average standard of living. In rich countries with high literacy levels, low homicide rates, low poverty rates and so on, religion is not regarded as very important. In total all over the world 82 per cent of people consider religion important.

My friend, the bits and pieces of your life experiences are coming together. I will not debase you for we are all members of the human race. My very own brother was a hopeless alcoholic. His wife died about 4 years ago from drug & alcohol addiction.

Mark, whom I have mentioned before was able to break free by the grace of God. His life was incredibly dysfunctional for over 20 years. Now he is dealing with the repercussions of his addiction by watching the dysfunction in his sons lives. They have not broken free.

I have my doubts a secular drug and alcohol treatment would have helped him. I don’t think it would have been powerful enough to have made a difference. When I say he was hopelessly addicted, I just can’t stress that enough. He has been living free and clean for over 6 years. Today he is a productive and law abiding member of our society.
For people like that, it's the sharing of a common delusion that helps.

AA would be much more valuable without the proselytizing. The ones who kick habits believing it was only through "the grace of god" are cheating themselves of the pride they should have in a great personal achievement.
