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.

Was it faith or science that "officials" used to get their information? I don't think your example works in your favor.

'Atheist always want proof. I think Hell is going be plenty of proof. I donít wish it on anybody. By the time Atheist get to Hell they'll be believers but it will be too late.'
Proof is very comforting unlike myths which are sometimes entertaining but mostly just laughable... like yours!

Says the 90 pound weakling who posts images of his alter-ego on a publics forum. Me thinks he tries way to hard to impress. Rough and tumble convict, vicious football player, bar fighter, lifetime criminal. Anyone who goes this far out of their way to assume the role of "tough guy" most usually ends up being a 90 pound wimp. A 90 pound wimp with delusions of grandeur. I personally am shaken in my boots!!!!! LOL

But lets review his assertions before we carry on the repeat performances , and spend wasted time on useless assertions of demented bull shyte. Humble even tried to produce the math to prove himself, but failed. As you fail . You both are in league with a failed hypothesis , that you will try any number of relentless bull crap to restore .
But you always end up empty handed and with excuses for your failure to present anything meaningful
Hb tried hard, much harder than you Dave to substantiate the beliefs you two share.
But n the end, he had only his clutch of his nuts to show for a naught. Zippo that's whAT you GoT.

I will wait until you sober up and hopefully turn that into a more coherent post before doing any meaningful response.

Buckethead wrote and played a song for a famous entertainer. One that had some evident identity problems which our Topix atheist can surely relate to.
Really pretty little song. Listen to the very end.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v =dADAxP7x3K8XX
Ahh...it's NOT really a song, but endless rambling in the same tonality. This does NOT do justice to Michael Jackson. Michaels music was original, "groove" orientated, harmonically interesting. This piece starts with an endless soprano ostinato of root fifth one at the octave and back to the fifth, over and over again. The music is extremely diatonic, absolutely no key changes, it would be like sitting at the piano and playing only the white notes. Still no melody, this guy could compose a fully formed melody if you threatened him with Buck Crick. I'll kill for a shift in total center, for a secondary dominant chord, for anything out of the key. Lock me in a room with this and I'll tell you everything about our troop deployments and gun emplacements. I'll give you relaxing, of course there is really nothing to focus your attention, hypnotic music, elevator music, nothing of substance. Even the quick arpeggios at the end were overdubbed to make it sound as though he was playing something complex. Please no more, I'l tell you what you want to know!!! Poor Michael, I hope he never hears this "tribute" I'm sure he can't hear anything, when your dead, your DEAD!!!!

BTW, I' sure you think this is wonderful. I have no problem with what anyone listens to, but to post this as though I'd somehow be impressed and change my mind about the music, was foolish on your part.

Dave understands the claims he puts forth. You do not.
I recall a certain claim of yours that a 10' stick could be divided into infinite segments of length greater than zero.
That's wildly wrong, and stupid, of course. Because then the stick would be infinite length, not 10'.
But you don't even understand that it is stupid.
And we won't even broach the subject again of your claim that infinite bacteria exist on earth.
Nothing is or can be infinite in space or time. Not the universe, not anything in it.
If you ever get that, then you can start to understand math and physics - maybe.
Any sum can be divided infinitely.
As matter of fact, past time has become infinite because the expansion of space. Space/time expands faster than light so it's really infinite.

To augment your advancement and advocacy of the atheist movement you should really contact some mainstream new media to do a story on the battles being fought here. Have them peek in and see what is going on. Perhaps they may even contact you to get the skinny on it, as you have to be one of the more eloquent spokespersons for atheism. You can provide them with background, which will give you the opportunity to become better known. For myself, and I am fairly certain others on here feel the same way, I think you have to be as good a representative of your non-belief as they can get. Sincerely.

Well I tell you Doc, I donít know Buck personally or anyone here on topix for that matter. But I wouldnít want to fight him in the days of his youth or even today. I agree he is projecting his power house days from his youth.

I believe he was and still may be capable of kicking someoneís ass. Buck realizes his days of his youth have come and gone. As it has for most of us topix posters.
As one gets older our strength is not so much in muscle power but in wisdom that comes with aging.

People like Buck have had some very unique life experiences as you have. His testimony has a place and use in society. Especially to the youth of today. Both of you went in two different directions. And both of you have something to say to young people.

September 11th - The day Allah 'won' and Jesus 'lost'.

Our civilization is not Christian. It does not come from the skies. It is not a result of inspiration but the child of human invention.

My 'respect' vanished as I watched the 'Day of Prayer' in Washington Cathedral, where people of mutually incompatible faiths united in homage to the very force that caused the problem in the first place: RELIGION.

It is time for people of intellect, as opposed to people of faith, to stand up and declare to respect people for what they individually think, rather than respect groups for what they were collectively brought up to believe.

Simple task... Are you up to the challenge Dave?

Provide evidence that your God is the only true God in a way that religions other than yours cannot do.

Provide evidence that your holy book is true in a way that religions other than yours cannot do with theirs.

Until this time, and it will be an eternity - you are only one of many religious cult members - each claiming more or less the same immortality or enlightenment as others.

I was gong to join the band, but considered that a wimp thing to do. Yes, I saw some Bush time. Joined the band after my tour. Spent the remainder of my service time between teaching and playing at the Navy School of Music in Norfork VA. and Fort Dix New Jersey, the last 4 months of my service.

Perfectly stated. Passion, power, technique off the scale, and creativity without peer. And a wonderful composer, and inspirational teacher.
