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.

Haha ha DAVEY BOY as if you hold any semblance of knowledge, other than pseudoscience. You have been shown repeatedly that string and magnet science is a spamming leap in hilariousness, but falls far far short in any attempt to explain anything real.
Tell us Davey of the telluric current you absorbed at coral castle giving you the cabal of arcane knowledge you found after ingesting the fungus of magnets.

If my yard was bigger than your yard, would light cross it faster?

If light intensity drops with distance does the energy level of photons also drop?

You changed from a definition of "space" to one of "length".

Space and length are not the same thing. You claimed space is a "measure" of the distance light travels. "Length" is a measure of distance, no matter what scale is used, and has nothing inherent to do with space or the speed of light.

Light's speed itself has nothing to do with the medium it crosses. The difference is not unlike
light crossing a bathtub full of water vs , light crossing a bathtub full of water dumped out on the floor spreading out.

You explained nothing, but you do a little a little wiggly dance of denial. You just have to stick to football. You know about that.
When we talk about light speed, dimension is reduced to length or distance on a curve that intersects at some point in the future. At c the distance and time is zero, slower the time is in the future. and space is between.

Oh. It's at "c".

I skipped right over "c" and was standing at "z".

You are obviously pasting together snippets from various internet blogs and have no Idea what you are saying, which is fortunate, since you aren't saying anything.

You really have no idea about the physics.of space/time, that's why I may as well be arguing with your football. Since you and the football have the same knowledge of cosmology.

No, Buck.

I think what you're trying to say is that your football career is infamous.

<quoted text>Not certain as to "you folks" ?
In this case, "You folks", refers to people who think that if their religion is not taught as science in the public school classrooms, their prayers are not recited at government functions, or that laws are not based on their religious beliefs, that the Atheists are pushing their non-believe on them.

In simple terms, no one has taken your god out of public schools, that is a silly claim made by the church leaders to get idiots fired up.

I didn't say that Atheists are not happy. Atheists are no longer willing to be treated like second class citizens, or allowing christians mythology to be forced on their children.

I did say that coming out as an Atheist is rather difficult; once it is out there, then you have to start putting up with, "YOU"RE GOING TO HELL!", "WHY DO YOU HATE GOD?" and "JESUS DIED FOR YOU!"

I know! Everyone adds, removes or changes the words here and there so that their god is created in their image.

<quoted text> I just have God relentlessly pursuing the Israelites
Just think about that for a moment. A supreme being that is omnipresent chose to revel himself to one very small group of people. Does that not give you pause?

If he is not dead, he gave up nothing. You cannot sacrifice something that you cannot lose.
Lab28 wrote:
<quoted text> Oh and calling them His friends. You have Jesus saying "follow me" You have him rejecting people who cast out demons in His name saying "I never knew you". You have Him telling the thief "Today you will be with me in paradise."
Ever wonder about that? Jesus descended into Hell on Friday and then ascended into heaven on the third day, which was somehow not even two days later on Sunday.
Lab28 wrote:
<quoted text>There's also John 3:16, most famous of verses, which speaks of intent for Jesus' coming. Mind you, this is what I can snatch off the top of my head, this stuff is implied throughout. So, this becomes a conclusion that can be drawn by looking at the Word of God holistically: God can't be around sin, but He wants to be around you.
Good cherry picking! One can claim the bible implies anything they like!
Lab28 wrote:
<quoted text>I never said it wasn't. And I don't think there's anything wrong with that. In my opinion if you choose not to decide you still have made a choice, therefore atheism is a religion.
Then you do not understand the meaning of the word, "Religion".

re·li·gion

1. the belief in a god or in a group of gods

2. an organized system of beliefs, ceremonies, and rules used to worship a god or a group of gods

3. an interest, a belief, or an activity that is very important to a person or group

If you use definition 1 or 2 to describe your beliefs, then you must use 1 or 2 through your comparison. Like many modern fundies, you are using one definition that describes you and then you switch to another to describe me and then claim that since the same word was used, your statement is true and that is incorrect. You people do it with belief and faith as well.

I'm a bit more skeptical. I say something cannot be both "A" and "non-A".
I think I'm on solid ground with that.
Nah. You need to learn more quantum physics.
