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.

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.

Topix atheists and agnostics are already enlightened, at least in comparison to you fundies. Enlightenment is people waking up to the fact that intelligent people reject unproven beliefs in religion, and adopt the use of the scientific method, and reason.

While I am on a roll this morning, my omniscient and oh so enlightened fellow creature that likes to pose and use fancy foreign languages for "that's life".

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.

You aren't intelligent enough to realize what a blithering idiot you are.

Even that statement you made there came out of something written for you to recite.

Jy was hier??! Wonderlik! Dit is inderdaad een mooi land. Ek bly in Durbanville, sowat een halfuur se reis met die motorkar. Jy ken miskien die name - Canal Walk, Tyger Valley, Grand West ensovoorts.
Ek is eintlik afkomstig van die Noorde, naby Pretoria. Was jy al daar? Wonderlike plek! Gebly op die dorpie Hartbeespoort.
Ek wil ook Belgie toe gaan! Wil al die chocalate kom opeet :)
Ek is darem nog jonk - net 26 jare, daar is nog baie tyd
In het noorden ben ik nog niet geweest. We zijn nogal in de kanten van Kaapstad en Bloemfonteyn gebleven en hebben ook de Kalahari gezien.

België is een fijn land, lekker eten en drinken en veel mooie steden die allemaal dicht bij elkaar liggen. Wij moeten niet zo ver reizen als jullie ;-) Wel koud hier, en veel regen...

Ik zal ooit nog wel eens terug gaan naar Zuid-Afrika, maar ik ben nu 24 en net afgestudeerd, dus ik moet eerst nog een paar jaar werken en sparen ...

How do you know that?

Can we see your evidence please?

Do you have evidence that life does not exist on Europa for example because if you have then I am sure the space agencies that are funding a proposed mission to Europa would be very keen to hear about your evidence

How about Mars, Id life exists there then it will close to the poles, as yet these areas have not been explored so the question of whether life exists there or not is open

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?

They haven't even really scratched the surface on this planet yet.

If you were an intelligent creature you would know I am a very long ways from being a fundamentalist. Religious or atheist.

How can these people have such a twisted view? It's really beyond me, how people can be so evil! Don't say it's because they believe in God, because I do, the whole of blumin India does, but never really are you going to find hindus, sikhs, buddhists, jains....telling you that if you not one of us you will go to hell! Why are the 'western' religions like that, though? Have you ever thought that this may be a problem of the west?
Hindus, Buddhists, and Jains are all pretty cool, never had much problem with them. Don't know any Sikhs though. If often say, if all the religious people were like Jainists or Amish, there'd be no problems in the world.:P

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