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.

Nothing I said there was rude you schizo. Take your medicine already and get over the fact that we don't believe in your retarded god.

Hitler called the Jews Christ killers and he was going I make them pay. It's just a fact. Sorry if the voices in your head disagree.

i get that, that's funny! we always take the piss out of ourselves.
Where did u get these jokes?
Did u here the one about a sardar ji going to see the pope or something?
I Googled it and thought it very funny.....

***About a century or two ago, the Pope decided that all the Sikhs had to leave Italy .

Naturally there was a big uproar from the Sikh community.

So the Pope made a deal.

He would have a religious debate with a single chosen member of the Sikh community.

If the Sikh won in the debate, the Sikhs could stay.

If the Pope won, the Sikhs would leave.

The Sikhs realized that they had no choice.

So, they picked a middle-aged man named Manjeet Singh to represent them. manjeet asked for one condition to the debate - neither side would be allowed to talk. They could only make gestures to make the opposite side understand their view points. The Pope agreed to this.

The day of the great debate came.

Manjeet Singh and the Pope sat opposite each other for a full minute.

Then the Pope raised his hand and showed three fingers.

Manjeet looked back at him and raised one finger.

The Pope waved his fingers in a circle around his head.

Manjeet pointed to the ground where he sat.

The Pope pulled out a wafer and a glass of wine.

Manjeet pulled out an apple.

The Pope stood up and said,

"I give up. This man is too good. The Sikhs can stay."

An hour later, the cardinals were gathered around the Pope asking him what had happened. The Pope said, "First I held up three fingers to represent the Holy Trinity.

He responded by holding up one finger to remind me that there was still One God common to both our religions.

Then, I waved my finger around me to show him that God was all around us.

He responded by pointing to the ground and showing that God was also right here with us.

Then, I pulled out the wine and wafer to show that God absolves us from our sins.

He pulled out an apple to remind me of original sin.

He had an answer for everything. What could I do?"

Meanwhile, the Sikh community had crowded around manjeet Singh.

"What happened?" they asked. "Well," said manjeet, "First he said to me that the Sikhs had three days to get out of here.

I told him not one of us was leaving.

Then he told me that this whole city would be cleared of Sikhs.

I let him know that we were staying right here."

"Yes, and then???" asked the crowd.

"I don't know", said manjeet, "He took out his lunch, and I took out mine!":

I guess you'd have to first understand hillbillys before you can understand the joke.
Why did 18 sardarjis go to a movie?
Because below 18 was not allowed.
A sardarji was filling up an application form for a job. He promptly filled the columns titled NAME,AGE,ADDRESS etc.
Then he came to the column Salary Expected : He was not sure as to what to be filled there. After much thought he wrote : Yes
I carried on and read a few..... good prompting LOL. I had a Sikh lady (Jasmine) staying with me for 3 months and we got on well. She brought me back a pack of Tarot Cards, a Scarf and a nice hand made bag from India after a holiday there. I had told her there was some jewelry in the family from her grandfather, like a ring or something, and she didn't think there was. She talked to her Mother about it, and found out there was a watch he had left. She brought the watch back with her too, and also lent me a book, Eat Pray Love, written by Elizabeth Gilbert, that perhaps it is time for me to read!! Just got it out of the Cupboard of Treasures 'cause I couldn't remember the name :O)

Racist against the dead? Bwahahahahahahahahahahahahahah a! Schizo you are something else! And generally we bury the dead in the ground so what is your problem? Was your so called burned to death sister cremated and not buried? If she was cremated I am sorry but in that case after death she would just be ashes in an urn.

<quoted text>I think people have forgotten that JESUS was hated by the rich and powerful and accordingly, tortured and executed, and it wasn't for not standing up for what was right.
**This is the only account of Jesus using physical force in any of the Gospels and is related to the topic of "but to bring a sword." The narrative occurs near the end of the Synoptic Gospels (at Mark 11:15–19, 11:27–33, Matthew 21:12–17, 21:23–27 and Luke 19:45–48, 20:1–8) and near the start in the Gospel of John (at John 2:13–16). Some scholars believe that these refer to two separate incidents, given that the Gospel of John also includes more than one Passover.[4]
In this episode, Jesus is stated to have visited the Temple in Jerusalem, Herod's Temple, where the courtyard is described as being filled with livestock and the tables of the money changers, who changed the standard Greek and Roman money for Jewish and Tyrian money.[1] Jerusalem was packed with Jews who had come for Passover, perhaps numbering 300,000 to 400,000 pilgrims.[5][6]
Creating a whip from some cords, "he drove them all out of the temple, with the sheep and the oxen, and poured out the changers’ money and overturned the tables. But he said to those who sold doves,‘Get these out of here! Do not make My Father’s house a house of trade!’"[Jn 2:13-16]
Israel Museum model of Herod's Temple, referred to in John 2:13.
"And Jesus went into the temple of God, and cast out all of them who sold and bought in the temple, and overthrew the tables of the moneychangers, and the seats of them that sold doves, And said unto them, It is written, My house shall be called the house of prayer; but ye have made it a den of thieves."
—Matthew 21:12-13 ****
We should spread the word of love, and we should turn the other cheek, but we don't have to allow people to mock and ridicule us purely because they have no comprehension of that which is inherent within. All of us.
2 Timothy 3:12 Yea, and all that will live godly in Christ Jesus shall suffer persecution. KJV
And we do need to live GODly, as such, but the persecution of man(kind), if replaced by the love of GOD, is not a curse, but an honor :)
Did you know that Satanists won the right in a Florida school to offer prayer over the PA system, just like the christians have been allowed to?

And I'm left wondering how they stripped the dead down to bones. Takes a while for that to happen naturally.

Did they eat their dead?

<quoted text>Atheists share a common goal to let everyone know how persecuted they are. How Christians shove their beliefs down their throats. Paradoxically, these pseudo geniuses are oblivious to the fact that since they label themselves atheists, no religion has been forced upon them. They are excercising their constitutional right (freedom of religion) not to practice any faith at all. Hello, is anybody in there?
When we go to public school and prayers are offered or crosses hung in classrooms, or when we go to city hall or a courtroom and the 10 commandments are displayed, we are being told that the government favors Christianity over all other beliefs and non belief as well.

That means that the government thinks less of atheists, and indeed those of ANY other religious beliefs, than it does of Christians.

"In god we trust" does not belong on our currency and "under god" does not belong in our pledge.

<quoted text>Are you just dumb. These are living cells, living molecules and atoms. If not then they could not receive signals. You are stupid, we do not have a secular government. I suggest you read the Schemff vs Abbington School District supreme court decision. It says that the government is neutral, neither secular or religious and it can not favor or promote either.
The idea that the atoms that make up living things are different than the atoms that make up unloving things is as ancient as the bible.

I'm watching Deep Space Marvels right now on how life may have formed on Earth.

It's fascinating. I bet you couldn't even watch it.

Even when they break pottery?

I suppose they never broke a single clay pot or wore out a tool.

Either that or they took all the shards with them, right?
