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.

so you say rape is immoral. i agree.your still not dealing with not only my claim, but the very claim youyourself made in relation to the rest ofyour comment. again, the problem is that they are followingsomeones morality. when the nazi leaders were being triedfor their crimes against humanity, the the defense they gave was that they were following the constructs of the moral framework they had in their culture. this in reality is exactly whatyour comment logically allows. ok, so if the nazis took over, and killed off or indoctrinated every human being that they found andsomehow managed to get 80% of the global population to agree with them, whould that indeed be a better moral frameworkfor the world thatn the free moral framework our culture allows? this is the danger of the ideayour saying. if morality is justsomething humans come up with by consensus, it would be no better than coming up with a majority vote about chocolate being better than icecream. your just asserting this, yet you havent given a defense ofyour argument nor have you pointed out a flaw in the logic of my argument. just saying that culture determines how we live does not answer the challenge that we do live insome ways and that morality needs a basisfor being objective. this is a complete red herring. this argument if true is an argumentfor the existance of God, and has nothing to do with the 10 commandments. what we are talking about is the nature of morality and what its ontological foundation is. what youve done is actually argued in a circle.youre begging the question when you say morals are human made and god has nothing to do with it, because when i use morals as evidencefor God you just make the same assertion. making claims about why one holds a believe is an ad hominim attack and not an argument. its fallacious. i havent attackedyour psycological motivesfor being an atheist, and i expect out of human decency that you extend to me the same courtesy. i dont care if you destroy my arguments, as long asyoure actually arguing and not insulting.

I agree you simply cannot allow uncivilized animals dictate what is fair game. Their myth of the epileptic prophet deserves no special treatment whatsoever. Their barbaric behavior will bring them more harm than good in the long run.
Islam is preposterous and makes the other Abrahamic religions seem intelligent by comparison.

And that's not easy to do!

You are not going to be able to treat people who believe in Islam on the same level you treat Christianity. The reason? They’re not going to tolerate it. They hate you anyway and your prejudice is all they need to blow your freaking legs off. You know what? They don’t care if you disagree.

I would advise you to leave them alone unless you want to be scooting around on your butt the rest of your life.

.....Force once BobLoblah agrees with you.

Ps:.....Countries that practice democracy and have 'Freedom of Speech' have the right to write and produce what they like.

If some other country doesn't like it, tough.

Meanwhile, BobLoblah has spend over 14 years in Muslim countries and has seen exactly what these hypocrites do in disrespect towards Western religions, demographics, and cultures.

Muslims (Palestinians in particular) danced on rooftops on 11Sep01 in excitement of the Twin Towers falling down.

....they even wipe their dirty arses in 'your' flag.

I am going to do my best NOT to run away and hide. You may want to appease them, it worked great in the 30's on Germany, you go ahead and try, but you never will make them any happier than I.

Well you have these divisions in Islam all believing they and only they are one with Allah. Basically even if the entire world became Islamic tere would still be wars and such. Probably more so actually. Hitchens gave a great presentation on this. Either the people of Islam will have to accept to live peacefully with others or they will eventually push to hard on the wrong group at the wrong time and the result be near genocidal for one group or the other.

I look back here in the last 24hrs and see the comments of childhood leukemia. Why does God allow such to happen to children? First of all our bodies are fragile goods. They can be damaged. That is especially true for unborn still developing during pregnancy.
When I looked for the causes of childhood Leukemia. I found the causes to be man made or at least that is what’s believed.
----------
Known and Suspected Causes of Leukemia
Both pre-natal and post-natal exposure to ionizing radiation (particularly X rays) can cause leukemia in children. Pre-natal exposure to X rays has been greatly reduced with the adoption
of ultrasound for screening in pregnant women

Several studies link pesticide exposure by both
parents and children to leukemia. The pattern of disease suggests that some damage to chromosomes may occur before the child is born
(3). Children born to parents employed in certain
occupations that have chemical exposures are
more likely to have leukemia (4). Chemicals,
specifically including benzene, have been shown
to cause leukemia in adults
A recent review of 48 epidemiological studies
concluded that the strongest evidence for a
relationship between a parent's exposure tochemicals other than pesticides and childhood
leukemia was for solvents, paints, and
employment in motor vehicle-related occupations
(5)
These studies tend to look at the occupation of
fathers more often than those of mothers, despite
the fact that exposures of mothers are likely to
be at least as important. For occupations of
the mothers, the review concluded that the most
significant were employment in personal services
industries, in metal processing, and in textiles.
All three categories had significantly elevated
risks. For occupations of fathers, employment in
painting led to increased risk of leukemia in a
child..
Some studies show that exposure to electric and magnetic fields (EMFs) is associated with
increased risk of leukemia.
There has been some evidence for an
association between leukemia and smoking by
parents, though the largest study performed to
date did not find that smoking by parents, either
before birth or afterwards, increased risk of ALL
or AML in children (6)

Did u read this atheists?? It is MAN's fault that we have so much disease and other issues.
We were given the freedom of choice, and people choose to do what suits them
At the moment without even considering consequences. This is why God provided is with such a reliable source, rich with information and wisdom on how to live. If u choose to ignore it and do things YOUR way, then shut your yaps and deal with the consequences. Don't cry 'wolf' when the world collapses.

Dime a dozen miracle worker?
Have u ever met someone who healed people on the spot, walked on water, brought people back to life, multiplied fish and bread to feed 5000 people, expelled demons, was crucified, dead for three days and resurrected on the third day in sight of 500 eye witnesses?
Not to mention there were hundreds of prophesies made about him at least 400 years prior, by many different writers, who lived at different times in 3 different continents.
A dime a dozen?
The Jews were so caught up in expecting an 'earthly' king, that they didnt recognize that the messiah was a different and more powerful kind of king. He came as a humble man, and endured much torture for the sake of mankind- that was also prophesied about.
U obviously need to sit down and open up some books before you open your foul, venous mouth.
