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.

Personally, I find the statistical evidence that religion is steadily declining in developed countries more interesting. It appears to be declining naturally in the face of education and science.

Some support for Christianity sometimes seems to be based on social or other pressures, rather than silly superstitious beliefs like 'Christ is our savior' or 'Mohammed is the messenger of Allah'. I don't think most people are crazy.
From a comment on this article...

"My brother and his wife are basically pretending to be Christians and attending church every week without fail, all so that they can improve their chances of getting their daughter into what they consider the best school in the area, which happens to be a church school in a suburb of Bristol. Their friends are also doing the same thing for their own kids. What I find fascinating is the possibility that religious groups running church schools take advantage of parents' anxieties in order to gain the hearts and minds of the next generation."

Catholics are a subset of Christianity but they aren't Christian, they're catholic.

Why else do they have a different name & different religious practices?

I've spent a lot of time in Africa. Amazing place, amazing people. And yet I don't like the hatred of gays or the huge amount of domestic violence down there.

-Tell the people there is an invisible person who created the universe,the world and all the living things and they will believe you.

-Tell the people you saw God and he gave you a task half of the people believe you.

-Tell the people you believe more on facts, on what you see that's reality none catholic will believe you and will doubt you for what you are.

A priest will tell you about mysteries he encounter like ghost, jesus and mother mary in his dream and a few miracle for some donations -people won't hesitate

A person who has evidence that his child is dying and needs donation to survive, people still tell you to get a job/earn yourself.

-People doesn't need to learn the 10 commandments, a well raised Child will know what he/she must not do in life.

This year, our church had a 14% increase in membership. We are having to add on to the building for the 4th time in a decade. I've had over 2 dozen folks join just by showing them this forum, illustrating how atheism is such an awful cult and that Christianity should be the remedy to rid our world of the hatred of atheists.
