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. Full Story

An outdated wiki page written by a Christian. Notice it says Christ not Jesus. To believe the Tacitus forged passage is legit you have to say Tacitus had accepted Jesus as Messiah since he calls this person Christ.

An imperial roman would never have written such a thing. And he didn't as earlier pre 15th century versions of his work do not include the Christ passage.

Poor daffy! Even his wiki page says Christ and not Jesus. I bet you think there was only one Christ back then eh?

Bwahahahahahahahahahahahahahah a!

That's a typical atheist response, you know.

"I disagree with you! You're an idiot that lets your stupid religion interfere with your reasoning!"

What's your excuse, blackie? You say those scientists have "verifiable evidence" of the age of Mars.

What friggin evidence?

Just answer THAT!

Ironic how people who don’t believe in God define who is and isn’t a Christian. As if to say you are some sort of authority on the subject.
Under your analogy Denis Rader known also as BTK was a true to the core Christian since he attended a Lutheran Church. Never mind that he was a mass murder. To you he was a fine example of Christianity.
I guess you would count Judas Iscariot a example of Christianity too. Even though history see’s him as the betrayer.
If I may use your words,“hallucinatory raving of an utter lunatic.” That phrase of yours would fit Denis Rader and you very nicely. Christianity requires more than occasional attendance but obedience to Christ teachings.
It doesn’t matter how the average infidel defines Christianity. It’s how God defines it.
You do realize you're making my point for me, yes?

The only qualification needed for one to be accounted a Christian by other Christians is the mere declaration that one is.

Yes, Rader counts.

Judas was almost certainly fictional, and the term "Christian" wasn't in use in his alleged day, anyway, so I'm not sure about him.

As for Revelation, have you _read_ the stupid thing?

"And I stood upon the sand of the sea, and saw a beast rise up out of the sea, having seven heads and ten horns, and upon his horns ten crowns, and upon his heads the name of blasphemy."

Seriously? That's either a major psychotic break or some VERY strange mushrooms.

Perfect, thank you. 8 proofs for you that show those laws were for ancient Israelites, not all Christians in every day & age.
But you said that there were not laws! Now you say, "Oh yeah, they were laws, but not for us."

So the 10 commandments are not for us, so tell all your christian friends that they do not belong in public buildings.

We don't have to listen to anything that was not given directly to the christains.

Crom is a Cimmerian god from the Hyborian age.

He was an indifferent god.

He was created by Robert E. Howard.

He was killed by Howard in 1936. Bullet to the head killed them all.

I think you stretched your brain too much in the past doing those convolutions.
As a human being you see yourself as something special. You pay li[p service to just evolving from matter, but you really feel at the top of the heap. You are special, you can investigate and determine and pass judgments on everything else, even though you just happen to be made up of materials aligned in a certain way. You really aren't in touch with what you proclaim. You think too much for your capabilities. Gets you stuck in loops.
I see humans beings, myself included, as being constructs serving the purpose of something higher on the ladder. My ego is under much better control than yours.
As I said before, I am a technician. I recognize machinery. We are machines. Worrying and guessing about what constructed us is beyond our abilities. The environment provided for us by this higher force will determine what we do.

Do you realize that was the earliest trace of protection for slaves in legislation, and it stands in strong and favorable contrast with the old laws of Greece, Rome, and other nations?
Do you also realize that everyone except the King was considered slaves?
But you still didn't answer my question.
Why do you assume God condones beating someone to death?
ASSuME?

Why do you feel the need to explain your god or the bible when atheists have long rejected both?

Why are you threatened by people that do not share your beliefs in Gods?

I prefer the humor found in the book!h

You're just not very smart are you. You can't even follow the conversation. You berated science for there BELIF that Mars was 4.6 billion years old. Although nowhere in the article I presented did they use the word believe. Hence...they "Believe" with verifiable evidence, you "believe" with NO verifiable evidence. Got it!!!!

Continually saying Atheism is a religion, really makes you look stupid. For some reason you think it irritates us. I actually find it comical that you try and put Atheists on an even scale with Theists. Its as though you are saying, "OK we believe without any evidence, we're embarrassed by that and feel real foolish that we believe in myths and magical events, but you also believe without evidence, so your in the same boat as you." Any intelligent person KNOWS that Atheists simple lack a belief, By calling us a religion, you now have to show what deity we worship and what our doctrine consists of.

BTW I have answered your question numerous times about the age of Mars, both on this thread and on others. You either can't read, or comprehend, or your just avoiding the information because you cant refute it. Either way, you look stupid, once again!!!
