Atheism requires as much faith as religion?

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. Full Story

LOL. Look an idiot who things that if someone's an atheist, they must follow and believe all the discovery channel science shows.
This is what i'm talking about. Putting my faith in someone that believes the crap that you do and still feel that we, as a society will still continue to improve over time is much more tougher than thumping a book that is based on fear and magical powers.
Don't know why "Christian's" always have to run their mouths about atheists. Don't you people have the Muslim's and Satanist you have to pray for and save? Don't forget to protect the Jews. That who your whole religion was stolen from.
{LOL. Look an idiot who things that if someone's an atheist}

Me things you are an idiot. Why me things that??? Could be the thing you said. If you are going to call someone an idiot. Get the thing right.

It's a bloody forum. A informal place to share thoughts and opinions. But you may continue your side freak shows. Itís so entertaining.
For you Eagle, it's a place to show your lack of education and your unwillingness to make any effort to listen and learn.

All you want to do is try to be humorous with sarcasm.

It's not working. Its not funny.

You just look foolish.

When you go to a business meeting. How do you get up to the table? Do you use a barbers chair and a booster?
Your first "statement" is not a complete sentence.

In your second sentence, it should be barber's, not barbers.

And do you think your question is a funny one?

Or are you sharing your "thoughts and opinions"?

Don't worry...happens all the time.
I can be more boring, but I don't have time right now.
I'll just ask a question. If a person had a brain tumor that made them have fantasies about having sex with dead people, is that person evil? Without that tumor, they would be considered "normal" and "mentally healthy".(There's a reason I put those words in quotes)
We have bonfires in America all the time. We don't need a special day for that.
Honesty, I donít think youíre boring! Listening to girls at Uni who randomly and constantly keep complimenting themselves; that is bloody boring! I think you guys are interesting, trust me I wouldnít be here if I didnít.
I would say that person is not well and needs to see a doctor, but his/her fantasy is evil. I think you are making this simpler than it is and I donít actually understand your point? Itís like youíre saying Hitler only killed Jews because he had a tumour in his head which made him do that. So you want me to feel sorry for Hitler? You want me to tell the Jews to forgive him as he was unwell? Itís what youíre saying that these evil people use in court, they always say we didnít know what we were doing, weíre mad and then they get sent to a mental institute instead of prison. Most of these people are evil because they know exactly what they are doing; Iím not going to feel sorry for them.
I tell you what happened in India, itís a true story from my auntieís village. This woman got married and she wasnít able to have a baby, so she went to an Indian priest and he said you have to kill a male child and wash yourself over his body. She and her husband abducted an 8 or 10yr old child from my auntieís village and did exactly that, the police found the boyís body mashed up at the bottom of the well. No way, NEVER am I going to feel sorry for thoseÖÖÖÖ..you believe it or not but to me they are evil in my eyes. These people were not mentally ill they didnít go mad and kill their own child for no reason; they killed someone elseís child to get one of their own. They knew exactly what they were doing!

REALLY? we only have 3 bonfires in india and 1 in english culture that i know of!

Prayer helps? I don't understand. How does that work? Does god take a tally and if enough 'true' christians pray for the same thing, he grants it? If one really good christian prays really hard, he grants it? What if one really good christian prays for something, but 100 so so christians pray for the opposite; what does god do then?
For instance; the storm, how many christians prayed that it would hit New Jersey, instead of going out to sea?
Which gets the victims more?
1. Send $5
2. Pray
3. Send $5 and pray.
If I pray for all the victims, will god help them all equally or will he help the best christian first, the so so christians next, then the ones who claim to be christian, but secretly are not, then all the other beliefs, then Atheists? Or does he leave some people out?
I lost power for 7 days, after a storm. The entire neighborhood, which includes two christian churches and a synagogue, lost power, as well. Was it my fault that we were without power for so long? Or was it that not enough, good christians, prayed for us?
In your particular example I would say just send the money.

I just canít help but wonder how many arrogant people disregarded the warnings. I lived in Houston and experienced Hurricanes. Every year I would put together a disaster kit with enough provisions for 10 days. This was done months before Hurricane Season started.

I took it very serious because there was always a chance I would be stuck at work. My work was near the coast. I wanted to know my family had everything they needed to survive including first aid supplies.

We have early warning these days. Plenty of time in most cases to get ready and evacuate if necessary. The problem Civil Authorities come against. People donít believe. They donít have faith that what they are being told is the truth.

God gave us a noggin right? The people of New Orleans didnít take it Katrina serious enough as well as their leadership. They were very poorly prepared. Is that Gods fault?

My opinion is since these type storms rarely ever happen in the North East. That preparations at all levels was not adequate. People get complacent. Government makes a half ass effort every year just so they can say they have a plan.
Is that Gods fault?

Every family in America needs to have a disaster kit. With enough food and water for at least a week. We are all subject to some kind of a disaster. Now to the issue of prayer. Since you donít pray and donít believe in prayer. You will never see what prayer can do. Thereís no need to try and sell you on the power of prayer.

It would be a waste of time. In my life prayer has worked many, many times. In your life it doesnít or wonít work because of unbelief.

I bet when in comes to a disaster youíre not prepared right now. I donít live in Hurricane country anymore but I have a disaster kit that even includes a 8 person tent. Even if I lose everything, Iím going to have the basics which includes a dry place to sleep.

<quoted text>You question is based on you not understanding evil and trying to put it in your terms and not God's. If Jews had escaped the concentration camps and were freed, then came back and killed millions of Germans would they be evil? Okay, if 65 years later, Jews were still going into Germany and killing Germans because of the millions of Jews that were killed would that be evil?
Now, we have Adam and Eve, they brought evil into humankind, so was Cain evil when he murdered his brother, by simply acting upon the nature that he inherited? So, are white people evil, because of slavery in America, apartheid in South Africa, dropping two Atomic bombs on Japan and the extermination of the Jews in Germany?
yes, to me all those things are evil! don't you think they are?

Dont many families in India kill the female children because thay are useless? Dont they give them away to other family members as slaves so they can focus on the male children?

Did you know in New York you can make the decision at 13 y/o to kill your unborn child but not at any age can you make the decision to supersize your soda?

What kind of a world do we live in Clementia?

I won't even bother to point out all your mistakes in this post.
