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.

I didn't eat the shells. Only animals can eat the peanut shells.

"Biled" peanuts is what they are called.

Good eatin'. "

I actually showed you a collection of verses that show the very thing I claimed. The bible is a book about _______?
Man's relationship with God. Think of it this way. If Shakespeare wanted Romeo and Juliet to know he existed he would have to write himself into the play. The entire bible has God constantly interacting with man.
This includes you who were once far away from God. You were his enemies, separated from him by your evil thoughts and actions. Yet now he has reconciled you to himself through the death of Christ in his physical body. As a result, he has brought you into his own presence, and you are holy and blameless as you stand before him without a single fault.-Colossians 1:21-22
What possible motivation for this could there be? I want you to use your brain for this. I want you to put that verse up against every assertion you've made about an evil man made God, and tell me what the motivation for those verses are.
I'll tell you this, if I were to write a book about an omnipotent power in order to keep people subjected to my authority. It sure wouldn't be the bible, and I certainly wouldn't be carrying a message about the rulers of this world clamoring in fear when that omnipotent power came back.
State run atheism in Korea works really, really well. That's the book I'd write.
You might be interested to know that promising people eternal bliss in exchange for (oftentimes) nothing more than lip service belief, while simultaneously threatening them with perpetual torture for disbelief is a (not so) surprisingly effective technique for gaining, retaining, and ultimately controlling followers.

Also, it's not quite accurate to call the NK system "state run atheism." While it is true that most North Koreans are atheists, they effectively worship the Kim family. They are an excellent example of a cult of personality gone horribly wrong. North Koreans even display some of the strange quirks typically associated with religious belief - they praise the Kims for all the positive things that happen for them, much like religious people praise deities x, y, and z for things like making the green light in time. They keep little pictures of the Kims on their walls and they view them as, essentially, mythological figures - they believe all manner of ludicrous stories about them, such as the hilarious notion that the "original" Kim invented the hamburger.

Yes, you showed me that you can cherry pick the bible and I said, "Of course! I can too and I can come up with a collection of verses to support or condemn anything I want."

First, Kim Jong-un calls himself North Korea's Supreme leader, that is not Atheism. He is calling himself, god. Absolute power corrupts absolutely; it is not just a cool saying. I could name many more 'christian' leaders who either thought they were god or god's top leader on Earth. None of them worked out very well either.

If we are done switching out meanings of words, showing that humans are easily corrupted, and cherry picking the bible, I would love to continue the conversation. But if you wish to continue these things, I am done.

All of it.
Including all the stuff you also disbelieve in.
What you are describing is belief. You are just calling it something else.

You "disbelieve" a proposition. You therefore believe the contrary.

Hey Buck, how about this?
I'm just throwing it out for discussion.
Maybe infinity is sort of like believers say God is--not subject to our physical/material/logic laws. Outside of the material world.
A superdidoopy Peter T. Hooper thing.
So infinity can be both "A" and "non-A" simultaneously and there's nothing we can say about it.
"outside the material world" is consistent with what I'm saying.

No physical infinite.

Infinity is an abstract concept with no application to the physical world.

Real mathematicians understand infinity is only a theoretical math concept.

Nothing more.

Correct.
5 miles is a quantity of miles. 5 of them, actually.
5 miles is not a quantity in itself.
Glad I helped.
<quoted text>
I see. Quantity is a measureable amount. 5 miles is not a measureable amount of distance.

I didn't know that.

Thanks.

Lovey, what you fail to understand is how much of what you consider facts is nothing more than conjecture and circular logic used by math heads. You are not seeing real direct observation and measurement. Much of those theories can be readily discarded using basic math principles and real physics.
Wrong, some what I consider facts is deduction based on scientific measurement and observation, the rest is just fact.

But hey if you can prove Einstein wrong with E=MC^2 then feel free to show us how, much more intelligent brains that yours have been trying for over 100 years and gave never managed it.

And what you consider facts (god dunitwiv magic) out of nothing (read the babble) is nothing more than bronze age camp fire dreams of goat herders.

nope - not at all valid to say that CHRISTians are liars (in general cuz i can't speak for all who claim to be 'christian':-)
Did I say christians or did I say godbots? I hold no prejudices, I simply have no tolerance for liars.

Godbots make claims without evidence, they know they make claims without evidence and wilfully promote the deception therefore they lie

<quoted text>
In the English language, which is what you are trying to speak, you moron, distance is quantity.

Merriam Webster:

distance; n.: "the degree or amount of separation between two points, lines, surfaces, or objects"

amount: n: "a quantity of something"

quan·ti·ty noun \&#712;kwän-t&#601;-t &#275;\ "an amount or number of something"

Distance is the quantity of separation between two points. It is expressed as a number of units of length, i.e., inches, feet, miles, light years.

Distance is quantity.

You religious atheists have no limit on your willingness to lie to support a point.

Funny how you can cite definition related to definition when it suites you but deny that same facility to me because it does not suite you?

Omnipotent = Infinite power

Power =/requires energy

Energt cannot be created and destroyed but can convert to matter and vice verse

Any subtraction or addition (In your own words) implies quantity therefore both energy and matter they cannot be infinite, signally or together .

Therefore even if infinite energy could exist (which you deny) then E=MC^2 is definitive proof that the omnipotent god as described in KJV Revelation 19:6 cannot exist at the same time as you.

Also funny how you claim infinite cannot exist yet you are comfortable with the concept of omnipotent god

You contradict yourself repeatedly in the attempt to show you have bigger balls than the average bear.
