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.

I wouldn't. The number 5 is an abstract concept in a formal system. As such, it has nothing to do with the 'real world'(as opposed to our models of that world).
You seem good with math.

What does "5 is an abstract concept in a formal system" mean, in Redneck terms?

So even though you can't prove the number 5 by scientific methods, the number 5 does exist.

Dumb@ss you still to this day argue that Catholics do not believe in Jesus. I mean holy fck if you are unable to grasp that Catholics are Christians you ar certainly unable to understand most of what is posted here.
So again what church do you belong to? Some holy roller idiots yes?
<quoted text>
So, please explain how it came about that Catholics all became Christians. I mean, some Jews, Muslims and Hindus became Christians. Not all Baptists, Presbyterians, Methodists and Protestants are Christians, but you believe that all Catholics are Christians.

Where is this truth, since most South American Catholics adamantly protest that they are not Christians. They do not pray to him, they pray to Mary, Thomas, and many dead saints. Each one has a specific purpose. Golly Liberty, those folks even have their own Bible, altar and incense.

It means that he is not good at math. For him.like science, with math, he still has never proven one concept.

Most of them live in a world of assigned value. So, the number 5 is assigned a value and they do not seek the actual valuation, formula and proof to arrive at the number idependent of the assigned value.

It exists within a formal system of axioms and not in any 'real' sense.

"Emotions" and "numbers" are both concepts.

Emotion is a state of the brain. Numbers are abstracts that relate to that which is countable. Emotions can be related with numbers too. A brain scan produces numbers which relate to brain states.

Just keep counting the church closings. The younger generations aren't picking up the torch. You're screwed.
How do you equate that with me being screwed? All you've done is proved that the scriptures are accurate. The increase in the misery index is on the rise......that is due to the adoption of atheism as a religion. You are the one that is actually screwed , and you've done it to yourself.

You need to wake up and realize how wrong you are.
