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.

Even low earth orbit is deleterious to a human's health. Bone mass loss and other things that go to hell when they are out of the gravity well they were constructed in. By just a tiny amount. The gravity is still about 90% where they hang out. Free fall is not real lack of gravity.
The body and mind were designed to work here.
For all their big talk, the physicists can't even provide a physical environment to maintain the forces we were designed for.
I'm not sure you really understand free fall, but that's tangential to this discussion.

However, we can and have designed a habitat that accounts for the proper physical environment. Google the "Stanford Torus". This project included required launch rates and schedules, costing, physiological design considerations, etc. and was all planned in 1975. As a member of the now defunct L5 Society, we lobbied for consideration of these ideas, but science has never been that glamorous in America, so we never got too far.

No.
A rock cannot exist and not exist in the same place, the same time and in the same sense.
Because that would contradict the universal logical law of non-contradiction.
But you now have a problem.
Because you have claimed that man created the laws of logic.
So before mankind existed a rock could exist and not exist at the same time, in the same place and in the same sense.
This is what your atheism reduces you to.
Absurdity.
Isn't it about time you abandoned the illogical?
You are using language to even pose the problem, but language is a human invention. Logic is a part of how we use language and so is an invention of humans also.

So, when we talk about a rock existing or not before there were humans, we use human language to pose the problem, so can use the laws of logic.

<quoted text>Your metaphor suck, really they do!! You have no idea who I am. You're no better than those who condemn people to hell without knowing them as a person, but simply because they hold an opposing view.
I view life through the lens of logic and reason. I deal with reality, my view, unlike yours, is not clouded with imaginary beings and magical events. I outgrew that. As they say, I stopped being religious once I reached the age of reason.
Because of my Atheism, and what medical science tells me, I do not believe in an afterlife. I'm pretty sure this life is all we get. So, realizing this, I try and make every moment really special. Life to me, is NOT a brief interlude, a mere resting point, before the main event like Theists believe. They miss the true beauty of this world knowing they have much more to look forward to. So.....you are completely and utterly full of shit. To use your piss poor metaphor, I drive extremely SLOW down the highway, taking in everything. Try it, lose the imaginary being bullshit and view life for what it is,
Your rationality is affected by some deeper issues as exemplified by your passion on the subject.

Those special moments will come to a screeching halt. You might not even have the opportunity to realize how insignificant they truly were.

So, tell me, how is it going now that you have entered the Previously Important Person phase of your existence?

Oh, and in regards to your music criticism. It is most fortunate for the vast majority of humans that we are not under your influence like those in your previous important person phase, and thus be forced to appreciate your aesthetic values and determinations of what is special and what is not.

Have a nice day.:-)

Cause it wouldn't work was the likely cause. But a great source of income studying it for a while.

Free fall is nothing but scooting out of the way of a direct line of acceleration. However, you just move into another line on a continuous basis. A tangential resistance. Believe or not, there is also a straight line aspect to that movement. Your motion has to actually counter gravity. Instead of a perfect circle, you have a series of straight lines. Sort of sawtoothed, but very fine. It could make it appear as a wave.

You still have the force of gravity. It's a law or something.

A trip to Mars means the sun will be the strongest attraction for a good ways.

Gravity works on the molecular level on humans. One of the things that keeps it together and functioning properly. You can not duplicate that on a spacecraft. Just not enough mass and directions being tugged on.

Its your duty to sh*t the f*ck up and demonstrate some morals by not lying to us about a god that simply does not exist.
I've never lied to you about a god that doesn't exist.... Get a grip.
You people are annoying, just f*ck off back to your caves and spreading your ridiculous mental illness to sane people.
I'm sorry, are you forced to be here, reading everyday about God?

I think that shows your innate curiosity that God is real. You're looking for answers.

That's a good start.

That won't provide historical proof for Jesus will it Dave? It is a standard Christian argument, one you being a Christian you are well versed on. Still it is a logical fallacy. We all know you gush over how you perceive the Jesus myth has in your words and opinion shaped the whole world! Lmfao!
But your opinion doesn't count as fact. The Jesus myth has hindered not helped mankind. It has stymied free thinkers since it was forced down the people's throat by Constantine.
Christians can't even figure out if Jesus was born in Mary and Joseph's house on Bethlehem or if they were living in Nazareth and stopped off in Bethlehem because Mary's water broke and she gave birth in a barn. Ah yes Jesus born beside piles of horsesht! Fitting no!

What is being projected from me again? Something about being sad?? Regardless of your lack of the English language Dave made the statement not me. I being a good sport am willing to give Dave a mulligan, a chance to take it back but he has to state that he wants to take it back. Otherwise he will continue to own it and will be reminded, frequently may I note, about his fetish for tying up men and sedating them.

You are already looking like a jackass for saying an unknown Arab man walked uninvited to your dying Dad's hospital room and converted him to believing in Allah.

Your Pope wants to speak directly to you, my people as you so deservedly need to hear from Your Pope.

Yesterday, Your Pope tendered his resignation as HEAD of the Holy Roman Catholic Church and has made arrangements for a New Pope to be installed within a month.

Your Pope has taken such actions personally, because Your Pope has become fragile and the Holy Roman Catholic Church always needs its HEAD to be astute in Body and Soul 'all the time'.

For those of you who are a little lost by Your Pope's actions (a Pope has not resigned in nearly 600 years), do Not despair. Your Pope knows that your Holy Roman Catholic Church wil continue to be as it has always been.....with Truth, Honesty, Humbleness, and Kindness in the Name of Our Lord Jesus Christ. Filled with members who want to help and assist the Needy, the Desperate, the Blind and the Insane in all countries and towards all cultures, and to Keep the Commandments of Christ, Our Lord, ONE in Being with the Father and the Holy Spirit.

And so, Your Pope wants to thank you all for your kindness over the past eight years and especially for your Prayers in times of Need by Your Pope.

Carry on in the Spirit of Our Lord. Forgiveness is your greatest Goodness. Do Good to those who hate you, Bless those who persecute you, and most of all Love One Another.

GOD Bless You All.

Et nominee Patri, et Felio Dei, etSpirituo Sancti, Amen.

Your Pope in Obedience to Christ.

Pope Benedict XVI

I'd just like it if we had actual secular historical proof he existed.

Jesus Ben strada the so called evil Egyptian sorcerer messiah made proper historical note by actual living secular historians who lived when he did and seen the man.

Jesus of Nazareth? Nope.

Going into full meltdown now after you let it slip about you dreaming about tying men up and sedating them? You said it, own it.

Dave just say you take it back and want a mulligan, you are only making yourself look worse otherwise.

By offering you a mulligan I am being beyond generous and kind. Your dithering is so bad today I am starting to pity you.

Oh, Chunky, you make me so hot.

Male or female, or whatever you really are, reading your words just gives me a huge erection and the desire to share it with you to shut you up.

I bet you do that to all the guys.
