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.

Dearly beloved Topix atheists. Exercise your one brain cell and realize how all of these nistakes are because if guessing games, and how such errors really, really have a snowball effect on the universal scale.
You really shouldn't take the current theories, and thus your cosmological beliefs based upon them as the gospel truth.
BTW, you will see that word "exciting" again. It is in just about every science announcement made. It is part of the rope a dope and reel them in methodology of gaining adherents and funding. If you can't dazzle with brilliance, baffle with bullshit and make them think they understand it.
Please tell me you're being sarcastic. I just got here so I wouldn't know. If you aren't, then that's just SAD.

Ebola typically spreads through contact with bodily fluids, which include blood, vomit, feces, sweat, saliva, tears — and semen, said Dr. William Schaffner, a professor of preventive medicine and infectious diseases at Vanderbilt University Medical Center in Nashville, Tennessee.
In that case, even the flu could be sexually transmitted. Probably from all that heavy breathing on each other.

The United Nations granted Israel land it now has and nation status in 1948 in what is now the country of Israel.

72% of the voting nations approved this measure with 28% opposing it back in 1948

This has been 66 years ago. It’s now history and Israel is not going anywhere.

Palestinians could have gained a lot of favor with Israel and the entire world if they would have embraced peace for the last 66 years.

Most of the worlds population is younger than 66 years old. It’s time for those opposing Israel to accept the fact that Israel is here to stay. We can not undo what has been done.

We have a cliché we use in the United States,“being a sore loser.” It’s time the sore losers accept the fact they will not be able to change history unless they use the key. And that key is peace. Without peace and acceptance of Israel there will be no changes going forward.

The United States and most of the free world will defend Israel to the death. Palestinians will continue to suffer until they release themselves from terrorism and hoodlum mentality.

We all want to see Palestinians to prosper along with the people Israel. It’s never going to happen with terrorism driving Palestinians.

I believe Israel declared itself an independent nation in violation of that UN action. They broke the contract. Do some research on it.

After understated reception at the airport, Pope Francis met Pres. Park and spoke of the need that “special concern be shown for the poor”
Pope Francis did not disappoint expectations. From the moment he arrived in South Korea, the pope acted according to his teaching that he is called to look after the vulnerable and the needy.
The pope left the Vatican in Rome and spent eleven long hours in the air, disembarking from a passenger plane operated by Italian airline Alitalia at 10:16 am on the morning of Aug. 14.
From the moment he appeared, he exuded modesty and humility. The pope did not want unnecessarily formalities, and in keeping with his wishes, his reception was a simple affair. After stepping off the plane, the pope came toward us on a red carpet that reminded one of the tear-stained eyes of the vulnerable people who need his touch.
“It is my hope that your visit to Korea will bring comfort and consolation to the Korean people and will sweep away the division and conflict on the Korean peninsula, ushering in a new age of peace and reconciliation,” President Park Geun-hye told the pope. He responded by thanking her and promising to keep her sentiments deep in his heart.

Sounds good to me.

The issue is what was that energy, what produced it, and what caused it to codense.

Manifestation requires boundaries to be made so you can have the mechanics. You don't get circuitry and linkage and processes in an amorphous blob.

You just proved that you've never read your own book!

Note: In the Bible, words having to do with killing significantly outnumber words having to do with love.

Proof? Try reading your book cover to cover.

Let me refresh your failing memory with a small portion of genesis...

Note: In the Bible, words having to do with killing significantly outnumber words having to do with love.

GE 3:1-7, 22-24 God allows Adam and Eve to be deceived by the Serpent (the craftiest of all of God's wild creatures). They eat of the "Tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil," thereby incurring death for themselves and all of mankind for ever after. God prevents them from regaining eternal life, by placing a guard around the "Tree of Eternal Life."

Note: God could have done the same for the "Tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil" in the first place and would thereby have prevented the Fall of man, the necessity for Salvation, the Crucifixion of Jesus, etc.

GE 4:2-8 God's arbitrary preference of Abel's offering to that of Cain's provokes Cain to commit the first biblically recorded murder and kill his brother Abel.

GE 34:13-29 The Israelites kill Hamor, his son, and all the men of their village, taking as plunder their wealth, cattle, wives and children.

GE 6:11-17, 7:11-24 God is unhappy with the wickedness of man and decides to do something about it. He kills every living thing on the face of the earth other than Noah's family and thereby makes himself the greatest mass murderer in history.

GE 19:26 God personally sees to it that Lot's wife is turned to a pillar of salt (for having looked behind her while fleeing the destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah).

GE 38:9 "... whenever he lay with his brother's wife, he spilled his semen on the ground to keep from producing offspring for his brother. What he did was wicked ..., so the Lord put him to death."

Whew!
If masturbation were truly a death offense few people would be alive today.

You’re coming across as being a bit incoherent. I’m not trying to be belligerent here. Just saying if you bothered to read the book outside an Atheist web site. You might actually have a focused thought.[tipping hat]

I am an equal opportunity skeptic.

I find all religions to be nothing more than organized superstition (for both control and profit).

I post my opinion and comment.

I have no agenda to promote - only religious people, in atheist forums, to taunt!
