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.

Just remember if you do decided for your ass to give birth to your head. Push, push, push, breath slowly and count to 20. If you hear a loud “Pop,” that’s nothing to be frightened about.

How do you know? The universe is a big place.

It's interesting though that you think the entire universe was created for mankind when almost 100% is,and always will be,inaccessible to us.
What possible relevance could a star or a planet 10 billion light years away have for mankind?

What if life is discovered on other planets? We can't rule it out even in our solar system,discounting Earth. We haven't scratched the surface,but you are arrogant and ignorant to declare that you know that life doesn't exist outside of the earth.
Does your religious faith depend on there not being life on other planets? If life is discovered on other planets? would you deny the evidence like you do for evolution? or would you stop believing in your book of myths and fables?

12Sep12....Your Pope is most pleased to present a former listing of devils to be cast out of TOPIX Forums.

A review will let you know who they are.

A later listing is to follow from Your Pope

Seems like our Father Merrin is doing quite a job
under the instructions of Your Pope.

May the Peace and Blessings of Our Lord Jesus Christ be with you ALL.

POPE BENEDICT XVI wrote:

Your Pope wants to keep you up-to-date on our 'Father Merrin's latest developments.
Our 'Father Merrin' has been involved, for someTime now, in his latest Dig. It is taking place just outside of Cairo, and not very far from the Valley of the Kings burial grounds for the ancient Pharohs.

Our 'Father Merrin's latest Dig has given UP nine (9) stone tablets which have the most clarity of engravings ever discovered. However, the writings are difficult to decipher and their stories and sayings are taking 'longer than usual' to understand. None-the-less, our 'Father Merrin' will persevere...Your Pope has utMost Trust in our 'Father Merrin'.

Just two (2) days ago, our 'Father Merrin' transmitted to your Pope copies of the engravings. Amazingly, each tablet bears the likeness of a large 'phallus'. It can be easily discerned to be a 'phallus' as it looks so much like some of the characters found hereIN this Topic.
But the Most marvelous thing is that the 'head' on each 'phallus' bears a likeNess to humans.

Our 'Father Merrin' has purposely Numbered each tablet starting at NO. 1 and continuing on to NO. 9.

It is most interesting that the likeness on the head of 'phallus' on tablet No. 1 is VERY MUCH like
none other than 'la strega kaitlin'.

At first your Pope thought this to be odd, but on reflection....its Really & Truly NO surprise.

Our 'Father Merrin' awaits confirmation of his names applied to the 'phallus' on each tablet, in order to make his way to their tiny rooms.
This confirmation to our 'Father Merrin' from your Pope will happen very Soon.

Blessed are the Clean of Heart, for they shall See GOD.
__________

Your Pope wishes to keep you up-to-date:...

Additional incoming Information to your Pope from our 'Father Merrin' indicates that the head likenesses on the phalluses of the other Stone Tablets have been identified as follows:.

.....Tablet NO. 1.........la strega kaitlin

.....Tablet NO. 2.........thinking

.....Tablet NO. 3.........cpt jack sparrow

.....Tablet NO. 4.........hiding from view

.....Tablet NO. 5.........black lagoon

The additional four (4) Tablets will be identified soon and your Pope will indicate to ALL the FAITHFUL the FULL list of deviates who comprise the LIST.

Blessed are the Clean of Heart, for they shall See GOD.

"Imagine a puddle waking up one morning and thinking, "This is an interesting world I find myself in — an interesting hole I find myself in — fits me rather neatly, doesn't it? In fact it fits me staggeringly well, must have been made to have me in it!" This is such a powerful idea that as the sun rises in the sky and the air heats up and as, gradually, the puddle gets smaller and smaller, it's still frantically hanging on to the notion that everything's going to be alright, because this world was meant to have him in it, was built to have him in it; so the moment he disappears catches him rather by surprise.:

You bring up a good point. The bible does talk about a new heaven and a new earth.

So far we have not located life as we know it on another plant.

YOU are denigrating others' language skills?

YOU? YOU?

For starters, check out your first sentence. How many times have I told you that there is a difference between a plural and a contraction. Australian's is a contraction. You needed to use the plural.

I'm starting to get very frustrated with you Mr. S.

I'm going to make you stand in the corner wearing a dunce cap.

Geez.

How can one as intelligent as you are. Not even ponder how all life just self started from dead material? Sure it may can be done in a Lab at the hand of a scientist, maybe. Can life self start from a sterile, dead, lifeless environment?
Nowhere in the Universe is there anything close to earth. This place is unique. There are lots of dead planets but only one that has life. If life is so easy to self replicate. Why is there just one place like earth?
Even Mars which we know had rivers and lakes. Is a dead and lifeless planet. Then when one considers the complexity of life here on earth. All the animals with their unique abilities. The bombardier beetle which is a flying chemical weapons plant. The Venus fly trap that has built in relay logic. The horseshoe crab that has not changed in 500 million years.
I think there is plenty of evidence of a higher power.
Still no actual evidence to back up your god claim, just a lot of ranting.

If I type slower, would it help you understand?-- Gaps in our knowledge does NOT prove that any deities exist, let alone your particular version.
