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.

Uh oh, here's some Christians that would call you a devil worshiper for quoting Evanesence:
To me, that song (Bring Me To Life) is about finding God, or being rescued by someone from some dark place like a drug habit or bad relationship.

Leading you down into my core
Where I've become so numb, without a soul
My spirit's sleeping somewhere cold
Until you find it there and lead it back home"

To me it's a good song to use for my alarm.

Certainly not in the way you, other Topix atheists, and fundamentalists believe in it. You all are of the same makeup, prone to believing in magic.

Any religious cult I would be involved in would be for the purpose of sharing "heaven" with tender young things like you. "Heaven" is not a fulltime state of being.

Little one, I started out as an "atheist", rejecting the dogma of books and rule of the self proclaimed interpreters of God's will. Plus I am a technician, very cause and effect oriented. Over the years I got past the emotional rejection you and others suffer from and looked at the act of existence from a technical perspective, which iincludes the emotions and thoughts involved, and how they come about. A rather dry and unemotional outlook.

Based upon the physical laws we know we are bipolar flows of energy, which means we sprang from a pre-existing structure of it. I basically look upon us as components of a larger neural network, so to speak. Topix atheists would have a harder time understanding that than theists due to their due to their ego and thus limited perspective. That makes them long on denying that which they don't know. They blurtate on here out of iggorance. They can't allow themselves to feel humbled. "Mankind" becomes their "God" because association with it gives them a greater sense of import, especially if they think they are "cool" and "in the know". This will affect their ability to meld into the greater scheme of things.

Yoda wannabe, I looked at your profile and saw your fascination with Sagi A. Of course this will be because of the imagined black hole there that you have seen on douchementaries.

Wow!! Cool!!! A supermassive black hole!!!

End of thinking process. You got bedazzled and impressed. Now you can carry that around to keep you warm and fuzzy feeling.

Now let's talk perspective.

Crank up your light saber and see how many somersaults you can do before you get dizzy and disoriented. You may need to find a tall building before you reach that point, though. But what you will be doing is following the force of gravity and changing directions relative to its direction of "pull", which your material construction is keyed to as a reference point on this planet, it being the locally strongest force. Warps your senses tumbling like that. Tends to blur your vision as things pass by so fast. But you still have your sense of self.

Now, where is Sagi A supposed to be? The center of the galaxy, right? The strongest pull of gravity on this locale? A pretty strong force if it holds this solar system, eh? Would certainly have an effect on you individually.

What is the earth doing relative to that direction of "pull"?

Somersaults.

Wear a parachute if you wish to try the tall building, and do try to keep your presence of mind to pull the ripcord when you realize you lost your sense of perspective.

Dancers have a technique to keep from getting dizzy doing pirouettes called spotting.



In the universal scheme of things look beyond yourself for a reference point. The further away the better.

Oh, all of this metaphor and allegory to explain something simple to simple minded Topix atheists.

More of your "dizzying" intellect, but Dave you need to slow down and let your fingers catch up with your brain. You know people can see this stuff you write.
You don't want them to think you're crazy do you?

Well, those Christians disagree with you? Whom should I believe, the Christian who spent Easter Sunday on Topix ignoring his Jesus, his job, his wife, and his kids or those other Christians who call Evanesence Satanists?

Let's concentrate on your final bit of hypocrisy, shall we?

You say, "... while I do think abortion is pure evil God will have the last word."

Really?

Because if your god is real? Your god is directly responsible for most of the abortions in all of human history!

Seriously-- if your god is actually in charge (as gods are wont to be), then looking at the **FACTS** of the matter:

According to medical studies, approximately 3 of 5 fertilized human fetuses are naturally aborted for one reason or another.

Since we are speaking of a divine agency here (god)? Then it means that these 3 "naturally" aborted fetuses did so, because your god **allowed** it.

Or worse-- your god's will at work-- your god **caused** it.

Either way?

Your god is responsible for 3 out of 5 abortions from the beginning of human history to the present.

Your god, therefore, is the **most** prolific abortionist of all of history.

You may wish to rephrase your future sayings on this subject-- your god obviously has no problem with it at **all**...

All that junk at the beginning is cool and all, but no one cares about your backstory. The fact that you continue to try to use a nonsensical Christian would-be insult just proves how stupid you really are. Worse than what Christians did? Hardly! Name one thing that ANYONE is doing today that is worse than the crap that Christians did during the crusades, I dare you.
I will now make a prediction.

<grin>

The prediction is this:

His excuse for all the evil that those historical Genuine Christians™ did in the past?

Will be one or more of the following logical fallacies:

1) they were not Real Christians™

2) They were over zealous (see #1)

3) Things Were Different Then (i.e. slavery was not really that bad, "back then")

Can you imagine the reaction when the Redneck opens his mouth in class and spouts his idiotic "beliefs"? On PTAG, he just suggested that venereal diseases may have been created by God to keep people from doing bad things, or punish them for immoral behavior, sort of like Pat Robertson's views that hurricanes are god's way of punishing us for accepting homosexuals in society.
What's the point of responding to this sort of idiocy?
The scary thing is that there are people like the Redneck out there, running around unsupervised.
It's worse than that: these barely-conscious individuals...**vote**.... meh.
