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.

Proof? Try reading your book cover to cover.

HA HA HA!!!!

"Let's read it cover to cover, only we'll skip 19 verses in Genesis so I can try to make a point."

Skipping 19 verses isn't cover to cover, dude.

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.
AHAHAHAHAHAAAAA!!!

Let's evaluate your so-called cover to cover expose here.

You start at Genesis 3, go to Genesis 4, jump to Genesis 34, back to Genesis 6, then to Genesis 7, jump to Genesis 19 then off to Genesis 38.

Hmmm...

3, 4, 34, 6, 7, 19, 38

Seems legit.

How does that lessen his argument? Can you demonstrate that those websites misinterpreted the Bible? Or are you just deflecting attention? LOL.

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.
The Palestinians disagree with you. They will continue fighting until they get their homeland back. The Israelis are a terrorist regime. It's not going to end well for them.

It’s not a one it’s a jar of yeast extract spread (or goo depending on your tastes). I will try here not to be prejudiced... honest.
See http://www.ilovemarmite.com/default.asp
It is banned in Denmark, is illegal in Canada
There is a similar Australian product called Vegemite, there are serious verbal battles (even on TV) over which is best that are completely lost on me (no more comment on that). It seems that Vegemite is banned in the US, chances are Marmite will not be too far behind... Just looked it up...the US will not ban Marmite because the British government have threatened to revoke Ruby Wax’s visa if they do. Oh yeah... please ban it.
Really, it’s just a hoax but I believe Marmite is available on US Amazon as well as some specialist shops (no not that sort of specialist)... specialist British food product shops. I have a friend who told me that he found a cafe in California that imports and sells Richmond sausages and proper smoked back bacon ... Good old English breakfast rules OK...
I've tried Marmite, but Vegemite much more often. Not a huge fan of the taste, but hey it's good for you.

Great reasoning.

The christian was trying to disprove evolution by providing evidence for evolution.

Some of the debunking scientists were also christians.

Were they lying?

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.

So you don't think I should post things from this holy book? That I selected only 'atheist friendly ' scripture?

The book is indeed ghastly if you take the time to read it. That's the sad thing 50% of it is decent stuff the other 50% isn't.

Incoherent?

That is a perfect description of the Bible and the people that follow its teachings.

"No man ever believes that the Bible means what it says; he is always convinced that it says what he means." ~George Bernard Shaw

I've studied religions, as a pastime for several years. Jainism is superior in my opinion.

After 911 everything changed.
A modern wake up call.:-(

"We love death. The USA loves life. That is the difference between us two"
~ Osama bin Laden

The whole thing is a steaming pile of Shiite but Sunni or later, some religious wackos will arm themselves with a nuclear weapon...

A haunting voice from the past...

"We knew the world would not be the same. A few people laughed, a few people cried. Most people were silent. I remembered the line from the Hindu scripture, the Bhagavad-Gita; Vishnu is trying to persuade the Prince that he should do his duty, and to impress him, takes on his multi-armed form and says,'Now I am become Death, the destroyer of worlds.' I suppose we all thought that, one way or another."
