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.

Maybe the IRA yes, but the other splinter groups that still want to maim and murder their way into the drug trade? Absolutely not.

Yup, Noraid funding has come to a virtual standstill, I am glad to say.
Do you think they would be so subdued if they were still getting regular donations from the US?

I wonder what's atheists' explaination for the REALITY that billions of lifeforms exist on earth,.......and yet there's....NOTHING....living on any of the other planets in this solar system?? Hmmmmmmm...
The same explanation that alien solar systems seem to be as different from ours and each other as Earth is from the rest of the solar system. In fact there maybe billions of different types of solar systems and planets. Whether there is life in any other solar system , on any other planet or moon anywhere else or within this solar system is simply not known.

You suppose you know the answer , but really you do not.
Because we have barely scratched the surface in exploration of a great big universe.

But you know that no deity or higher intelligence than us could possibly be responsible for that universe. And preach such to the masses.

I would prefer not to damn anyone to hell. It's not my place to send people to hell. People do a good enough job getting there without my help.

You made your own way and created your own destiny.
Uh huh.
Catcher is so smart and omniscient he made the forces of an impersonal universe, and billions of of bodies and minds competing bend to his will.
I have suspicions you are smarter than that, but then again.
Like everyone else you have been run down a maze. Some gates were left unlocked for you to push open if you made the effort. But you thought it was your own force. You have been enabled, and you thought it was you.
One gate can lead to green pastures through a desert. Another can lead to a desert or a slaughterhouse through green pastures. Be wary of being fed too well too early.

Happy Thanksgiving.
Smart, yes.

Omniscient, hardly.

Happy Thanksgiving.

Not for me, I am in Canada for a few days.

Actually, that's not what he says, even I don't say that. We just say that your deity, your god, is a bunch of mythology due to a lack of evidence.

This is why your dishonesty is so vile. You do actually want to see your "enemies" tortured forever, that's why you push this belief onto people. It's more sadistic than that, because even you don't believe it, you just want to scare other people into agreeing with you simply so you can make them all be just like you.

This is the day of thanksgiving at least here in the United States. A national holiday as we reflect and give thanks. If you have employment, education, family, friends, good health, you have much to be thankful for.

Happy Thanksgiving to everyone!!!

I am a prophet, I predict that millions of people will eat turkey for dinner tonight, and there will be a wave of lethargy sweeping across a giant nation.

I'm more accurate than the bible, my prediction is actually before it happens.

I am thankful, I'm thankful I had the strength and fortitude to make my life what it is. I'm thankful for the mistakes I made because I learned from them. I'm thankful your god isn't real as well.

Wow, you are way off. Digestive problems actually, caused because I'm "too skinny" to have digestive ailments so they failed to diagnose one small problem until it because a big one. Try harder.

I'm more accurate than the science hypocrites, my prediction is actually happening.
So, you are blaming gay people for your being a vile person. Makes sense, people who are different than you shouldn't exist, should they?

<quoted text>No, actually you are confused. Lack of evidence does not make God a mythology, it makes you confused. So, what you are saying that Black holes are a bunch of mythology based on lack on evidence.
How does there not being any evidence to support your myths make me the confused one? I'm not the one believing in something in spite of a lack of evidence, that's all you.

<quoted text>Why do you hate yourself and your parents? You should be thankful that you have parents.
No, you are vile and hateful, you actually choose to be tortured forever, our belief as you say is a preventer of all being tortured. It's even more sadistic than that, because you actually believe in hell, but you would rather go there if you can get your parents to go to. You just want others to be stupid and hateful like you, and to hate their parents too.
I AM THANKFUL THAT I HAVE TWO LOVING PARENTS AND A LOVING FAMILY.
Aw, you're projecting again. It angers you that your parents lied when they told you that they loved you, it's alright, you're an adult now ... mostly.

You are a perceptive person, though. I am impressed. Truly.
Be careful of the pack you run with. Once you get into motion with them it is hard to stop.
Observe nature.
Then.. for the holy magnetron? What becomes of the poor souls that you lure in the name of the magnet? Are we torn asunder by the wrath of EM?

One born every minute, and distributed among various persuasions and agendas. How Topix atheists are made, along with those they rant against.
You get your best deals off season and through places like Amazon that broker various suppliers. You can also save on the gas.
eBay has turned into the biggest scam because people think they are getting a deal. It is ridiculous the prices I have seen paid on there for junk or things I could have got cheaper at a store.
Topix atheists think they are getting enlightenment.
You're right man. Black Friday is a hotbed of atheism.

If you are who you are,then why not be proud of your hatred. I am proud that I love my parents and family.
You are still a child....mostly. What adult hates her own parents? None.
You're a cute little troll.
