Atheism requires as much faith as religion?

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.

As a point of interest, I was reading a US Christian forum, where the majority was very strongly in favour of assult weapons. I find it interesting that the two go together, a Bible in one hand, and an assult weapon in the other.

When I was a kid in school, I was taught that America was built by taking the best ideas from the rest of the world. Other than some very big mistakes, like slavery and segregation, I believed that.
Nowadays, we are sometimes too prideful to say that another country has a better idea than us and sometimes I think we are smart not going down the same path as others. Unfortunately, we mostly rely on our news programs and they are quite unreliable! Every month or so, someone on one of the news programs gets busted for lying, skewing the data, or ignoring an issue that makes their party look bad. People complain that news organizations should not be in bed with a political party, but that falls on deaf ears.
Travel is the best way to broaden your mind! I have been to Sydney several times and loved it each time. I even stayed at Kings Cross!
I have been to Perth and I loved it! Beer cost a lot more but I loved the people and the weather! Most of the people that I hung out with, were also travelers and knew that Americans were not what they saw on TV.
What to do about the homeless? If I had the answer for that, I would be king of the world! First, I think you have to find out why they are homeless and deal with it from there. If a person wants to be homeless, can I take that freedom away from him? If they are mentally challenged, then surely they should be put in a home and cared for. If they are just down on their luck, then they should be helped! I don't understand why we don't push education in the country!
It would be nice if you could know which people to help and which are too lazy to worry about.
When I was at Uni I ran into some Swedes. Curiosity got the better of and I had to ask them they where here (I mean here of all places). To which I got an answer that blew my socks off.

Apparently in Sweden if you can gain entrance to any university in the world and that uni is a leader some field or other, then the Swedish government will fully fund you.

The idea is that when you return to Sweden you bring back the best from around the world.

BTW Why were you out here, holiday?

A gun is a instrument it's use could be as a weapon.
Yeah.

And its use COULD be to hammer nails.

Right?

In order to justify the denial of a constitutional right, the government would need a lot more than a profile, biometric or otherwise--that's the difference between a right and a privilege. Our laws allow denying even the right to vote to convicted felons, but the rest of us enjoy all of the rights guaranteed by the Constitution. I doubt that denying any rights based on profiling would survive a court challenge. That's why it makes more sense to define rights more precisely than to deny them to any class of citizens.

I just looked.

They are legal in some states.

Not mine.

And I'm sure you won't get this, but I'm not an anti-gun nut.

If you tried following along without your confirmation bias, you would know this.

And outside of being the same kind of liar that everybody is (I.E., No. That dress doesn't make your ass look big.), you owe me an apology.

I won't hold my breath, though.

There's a brain scan now that shows a specific area of the brain that doesn't register in psychopaths.

An interesting part of this finding was that the man who discovered it did a scan on himself and found the he was actually a psychopath.

After the scan, he recognized the properties of psychopathy in himself that he hadn't realized before.

The Constitution doesn't guarantee the rights of citizens. The Constitution limits the rights of the government. The citizens have all the rights. How was that forgotten?

That's correct.

In aviation, I'd think, once you get off the ground you be on yo own. When they say, "I'll talk you down", that's just talk.

In NY where I lived for too many years the Building and Zoning Dept of the Town I lived in had an official policy of if its not covered in the code its prohibited. Now matter how simple the issue was it was prohibited and you were held hostage until they adressed whatever it was you were desirous of doing.

A good start to those abuses were the actions perpetrated by the Federal Government to wage their war against the Southern States in the War for Southern Indepedence.

Good one. Hipflask of JD in pocket, KJV held aloft, gun holstered on hip, holding placard "We are a christian nation". They are great comedy value.

I have repeatedly offered evidence, you have repeatedly poo poo’d it, ignored it, tried (and failed) to talk it round, made excuses, attempted re-direction and outright lied.

If you really want me to re-state the sources of my evidence I will but I feel it will be a complete waste of time because you will go round and round again in the pathetic attempts of yours to discredit DOCUMENTED evidence based on nothing more than you personal belief.
