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.

Like i said no worries: you will come back to God on your deathbed and ask for forgiveness for your blasphemous statements like most of the atheists and godhaters do when they say goodbye to this world. They want to continue to live in the other world as well :) but will God put them in Heaven or hell it's up to Him.
I agree. Don't you think it's odd that university professors can spend an entire career mocking god then when the rug is pulled out from under them, thier wife left because they cheated and now they have aids, that they go sniveling back to what they think is faith in some church and ask for prayer for god to heal them? When thier entire life was spent mocking faith?

You are whining. Again.

You are unfinished product.

Diamonds went through hell becoming diamonds.
Your computer went through various levels of assembly, and got baked.
Quit whining and take it like a man.
I haven't been sleeping, Dave, just had other things to do, and lost interest in spending every day with people who refuse to use their own brains, but would rather repeat rote that they have heard, and I have heard, since young. There still is not a shred of evidence to support any beliefs relating to deities and supernatural events, and there is much information to prove that what man has held as truths throughout the ages is, in fact, not true at all.

are you calling faith in God for healing a "Christian Science" doctrine???
bros and sista's, number four seems like one of them whom Paul speaks of in 2 Tim 3: 5 when he says "having a form of godliness but denying its power. And from such people turn away!"
they have nothing but self-righteousness and religion/superstition to offer!:-)
Okay , fine ..God is the healer of all our pain and anguish , but sometimes He works through modern medical practices ...

iraqi never asked for Military intervention it all about our ill US hegemonic worldly aspirations! You lair!
Read up clueless....
"Since the Bush-Cheney Administration took office in January 2001, controlling the major oil and natural gas fields of the world had been the primary, though undeclared, priority of US foreign policy... Not only the invasion of Iraq, but also the toppling of the Taliban in Afghanistan, had nothing to do with 'democracy,' and everything to do with pipeline control across Central Asia and the militarization of the Middle East."
F. William Engdahl –Biography F. William Engdahl is an award-winning geopolitical analyst, strategic risk consultant, author, professor and lecturer.
..Well , then we can all safely assume F. William Engdahl is an idiot ..

We're in Afghanistan because Al Qaeda knocked our block off , and we're kinda hoping to insure that doesn't happen again ...And , of course the 100 plus nuclear weapons in the Pakistani armory also gives us impetus to stabilize the Af/Pak theater ..

and , YES ..Nouri al Maliki has asked for United States military intervention in battling Al Qaeda ...that, you would label such pleas as "Stockholm syndrome" ..

Is not surprising since most of your understanding of global politics appears to be mere verisimilitude .

Sorry idiot. But doctors don't put someone in madhouse just because he's Christian. Why? because it's a totally normal thing.

It's atheist trash like you who should be locked up there. Let's now examine some of the atheists: Marx- madman Stalin- madman Darwin- madman, Rotschild family- madmen, Rockafellers- madmen Bush family- madmen Obamas- madmen, etc, etc etc.

The Idiots guide to Gulf War one and two ..

1) The First incursion was ostensibly to liberate Kuwait , but we all know it was Iraq's massing of armor near the Saudi oil fields , that provoked an armed response ..

Now , recall ...We never signed an armistice and we were enforcing a no fly zone that was being disputed ...ergo...We were still in a ' hot ' War ..

2) Gulf War Two ...I see as President Bush as finally just saying " enough is enough ! "

funny factoid ) Operated Iraqi Freedom , was first tagged Operation Iraqi Liberation ...but, someone in the Pentagon said " Hey , check out this acronym O.I.L ....

Many smaller/poorer Nations have no way/limit capabiilty in protecting themselves are usually bully by our US Militaristic Superiority and many nations we had invaded had not got out Poverty still with a third rate infrastructure...US /G6 nations plunderrape/mass murdered many in third world /under developed countries like of Africa, Latin America....
My point is these African and Arab Nations still claiming to be suffering because of European colonialism are all " Lairs" (sic)

Germany and Japan were turned into parking lots ..and they have rebuild , The Hindus aren't still claiming colonialism hobbled them ...We can't help that Arabs and Africans can't choose wise leaders ..

I'm pretty happy with the Latin Americans , It's not their fault cocaine is so awesome ; everybody wants it ..

You claim everybody hates America , then you claim America has lap dogs ...You make no sense , it's like you're from Bizzaro World ..
