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 like Europe a million times better than the US, and I have seen more people with missing teeth or fake teeth than even in Mexico. lol Seriously. The US people just have this huge problem with projection.

Also, good to know, I am a bit bored forcing myself to take a break from code and all.

Here's a question about the current progression of this threads' topic (which might prove to be somewhat telling about the TRUE motivations behind this threads' origination):
How did this thread go from a discussion about Atheism to one about homosexaulity*...?!
*(hint: Perhaps because it was ALWAYS one about homosexuality/Atheism and homosexuality are one in the same)
Perhaps, except for the fact that it's almost always the so-called christians that bring it up.

And it ALWAYS the christians that beat it to death.

Assault weapons have no purpose other that to spay death to many. I know there are many out there but a ban would man fewer, and that never hurt. maybe a buy back plan would eliminate more, I realize your not going to eliminated them, but some attempt MUST be made to reduce the numbers.
I can't ever remember feeling so helpless and sad over those poor children and their parents. The other school movie shooting were terrible I know, but there is just something about little innocent children that seems especially cruel. Helpless to prevent and all hope lost that this will not be repeated has left me sad beyond anything that has ever happened to me.

<quoted text>I suggest you listen to the media and the stories about the gay boy, because he was an angry gay atheist adult 20 year old male.
Once again, you are another gay, who used the Matthew Shepard murder, Harvey Milks, and Stonewall incident to run your political agenda and now you want to hide from the fact that another gay atheist was being himself, mentally ill.
You gays and gay supporters decided that homosexuality was not a menbtal illness, now you want to hide from gay pedoohilia child abuse, gay mass murders of children,, Sandusky, Dahmer, and the lsit goes on and on and on.
Grow some balls, and accept the truth now.
I wonder just how many of us here on this site would be shocked to read in the paper tomorrow that YOU had strolled into a gay bar and massacred everyone there? The newspapers would be showing the kind of posts you just wrote above and saying "someone should have warned that this person was so deranged." I would examine myself very closely if I were you, you are obsessed, and sever obsessions like you have for gays is extremely dangerous.

Can there be a gnostic theist?
Can there be two different kinds of gnostic theists, whose beliefs contradict each other?
Do you know that God exists? Do you believe that God exists? Do you believe you know that God exists? Do you think it's possible that there are no deities at all? Do you think it's possible that a whole bunch of deities exist, like 100?
I guess you'd call me a gnostic theist - I KNOW that God exists.

It was a flawed analogy, but the others hold.

If atheism is akin to just not collecting stamps then theism is akin to just collecting stamps....

A flawed analogy, TwB.

A you don't have to believe in stamps in order to not collect them.

It's a strawman.
There are no atheist beliefs. Atheism tells you what you don't believe. It says nothing about what you do believe.
If you don't get this, there's no point in taking you any further.
Atheism acts as a crutch. It gives folks a prepackaged worldview and saves them from having to think for themselves or to seek answers to or even ask life's difficult questions.

Atheism is the opiate of the egotistical.

Then you are lying or delusional, no less dishonest than those who say that no god could exist.

<quoted text>A decent social environment is were one doesn't talk in public about have vagina juice on his mustache, nor wallowing in juvenile bathroom humor and fart jokes. Seems as though you never made it out of the 5th grade. Hope that answers your question.
That's YOUR opinion of a decent social environment.

IMO - Your opinion is sounds like a pretty lame place to live. What's so undecent about bathroom humor & vagnial juice on a 'stache?

You can't understand that what you find decent is relative?!?
