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 see it as a sign of mental weakness , a lack of ability to form a intuitive counter argument , and last but not least a sure sign of immaturity. Mimicry is the act of a desperate and depraved individual.

You're the one claiming he is not real. How about some proof. But we all know you can't prove anything. He is not real to you and that is where it ends.
I have the $100 right here under my monitor.

All you have to do, is prove your god is real, and the $100 is yours.

But you are too much of a coward to even TRY.

Why?

Because-- YOU HAVE NO FAITH!

You admitted you have none, over on the snake threads---

-- you are just a cowardly believer-wannabe-- with no more faith than I have!

You dare not test your faith-- it's worthless.

I pity you, I really do.

But as soon as you can prove your god is real? That $100 is yours.

For you lack all the requisite properties of consciousness you see.

For starters?

You have no self-awareness.

But worst of all? You have no free will-- you are a mindless, per-programmed drone.

Sad.

If you stop here, you got it. All individuals are transitional.
Unlike you, I have held Australopithecus, H. habilis, H. erectus, archaic H. sapiens, H. neanderthalensis - unlike you, I've spoken with experts in the field and traded ideas with them.
Unlike you, I cite real science sources.
Right now, in paleoanthropology, the biggest problem is what to do with all the transitional fossils. We have so many, they've broken our arbitrary species categories. The picture is one of relatively smooth genetic transition from H. erectus to H. sapiens, with side branches of H. neanderthalensis and a few others - and genetic exchange between various highly mobile populations.
You'll never be able to present a compelling scientific theory. You'll never be able to deal with real evidence.
The very best you can muster is to copy and paste from irrelevant creationist sources who have no voice whatsoever in science. That shows how meaningless your opinion is on anything science.
Anything else you want to lie about?
Facts is what is destroying your religion. First lets see that most of the great names in science were creationists:

Physics: Newton, Faraday, Maxwell, Kelvin
Chemistry: Boyle, Dalton, Ramsay
Biology: Ray, Linnaeus, Mendel, Pasteur, Virchow, Agassiz
Geology: Steno, Woodward, Brewster, Buckland, Cuvier
Astronomy: Copernicus, Galileo, Kepler, Herschel, Maunder
Mathematics: Pascal, Leibnitz

Steven P. Novella:is an American clinical neurologist, assistant professor and Director of General Neurology at Yale University School of Medicine.

There is a total lack of undisputed examples (fossilized or living) of the millions of transitional forms (“missing links”) required for evolution to be true. Evolution does not require a single missing link but innumerable ones. We should be surrounded by a zoo of transitional forms that cannot be categorized as one particular life form. But we don’t see this—there are different kinds of dogs, but all are clearly dogs. The fossils show different sizes of horses, but all are clearly horses. None is on the verge of being some other life form. The fossil record shows complex fossilized life suddenly appearing, and there are major gaps between the fossilized “kinds.” Darwin acknowledged that if his theory were true, it would require millions of transitional forms. He believed they would be found in fossil records. They haven’t been.
----
You are part of a Crackpot pseudo-science. The fossil records refutes evolution. You have been trying to find some missing link to humiliating failure:
http://macsmind.com/wordpress/2010/04/another...

I have no respect for you as a scientist. none.

Either post the name of the scientists or universities to back your claim or state its your opinion.

You don't hold any weight here. To me you're some crackpot atheist and I have no evidence you're even in college. Just because you say it on topix? LOL.

Post your credentials for your opinion. If you can't, state your sources atheist.

You're lying again, Boss.
The truth is you don't know anything about the fossil record. Have you ever even picked up a single fossil in your life? Have you ever in your life taken a science course?
Go, find me one single science source to refute my claims. Just one. Find a scientific research paper that argues humans are not evolved, but specially created by God.
That's laughable! It was hard to type, I was laughing so hard.
I seriously can't imagine anyone being as scientifically illiterate as you, Boss. What do you do for a living that you can know almost nothing?
If I was pursuing a pseudo-science fairy tale studies like you are, I would know nothing either.

Plenty of scientists refutes your claims. just because its on a piece of paper does not make it true.

You believe the book the three little pigs. Its on paper. Prove a wolf can huff asnf puff and blow your house down LOL.

Quite an interesting change in your personality, for a while you were discussing, almost civilly, matters of importance. Now suddenly you have locked up and resorted to simply ignoring everything presented to you.
It's tough having your world view shaken by reality, perhaps you should take a break and watch a movie like The Matrix.
it was late. I was rushing to go to bed :)

Actually I did watch a movie last night. Columbiana. eh, ok. Some badass female taking revenge for the killing of her family. alright for a friday night.

You have a special branch of Christianity that promotes dishonesty and lying about science. You do it all the time, it's second nature to you.
I'm not an atheist because you're dishonest and uneducated. I'm an atheist because I thought very critically about religion and am educated.
Your opinions on religion convince me that:
1. you really are clueless about even your own religion
2. you have poor schooling and probably no college level courses
3. you don't know what science is or how it's done
4. you don't know the first thing about history
5. you don't know the first thing about theology
I find this really strange. If I was a Christian, I'd be reading as much as I could about theology and trying to learn the original Hebrew, Greek and Aramaic languages - and cultures - so that I could understand the context of the Bible more.
But you don't care about these things. The poster G_O_D is quite accurate when he tells you that you're not a Christian. You not only fail to understand anything about scholarship, you believe in some caricature, some parody, of the Bible.
It's like Bible for the unthinking. Bible for those who can't face reality. That's not faith, Boss, that's infantile.
<quoted text>
KK just did and all you could do was write "you're wrong!" without even bothering to look at the material she presented.
We know why you did that. It's because you're incapable of reasoning through evidence - you have no foundation whatsoever to build from so the only defense left to you is abject denial.
I really feel sorry for you, Boss. You're a product of the American neoliberalist policies to destroy education in your country. As an anthropologist, I'm enlightened by your example, but wow, I pity you.
You're an atheist because you chose to be an atheist. Take responsibility for your "no God" doctrine.

What you're convinced about concerning me is irrelevant. YAWN. You're some internet random person. stick to your writing about your religion.

What is really funny is a atheist telling someone that believes in God what they think about them believing in God..LOL. hysterical.

Don't be concerned about me and my reading of the bible. That's is none of your business. You're the one claiming science backs your believes. Science proves you wrong. And all you have then is..."they are not real scientists" <grin>. Sure, because their findings refute the teachings of your religion.

Your views on my Christianity is irrelevant. I'm not here to recruit you. Christianity is quite strong, it does not need you. You can post I worship trees...so what.

Actual Scientists, not crackpots like yourself did the reasoning, the research, the critical thinking and the analysis.

They looked at the evidence and found what you believe to be pure nonsense.

You're not even practicing anything, you're just a child in a classroom.

There problem is that they argue about God, then they supply human limitations to Him.
They can't even pay their bills, but they think that they have a plan about how God should be.
You're amazed? I'm amused <grin>

Atheists are fun. They are like a mattel toy where the toy repeats back to the toymaker...you don't exist...you don't exist. LOL.
