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.

Probably just ignored a stupid question from an insignificant creature.

True Believersô are usually rather incurious.
A serious historical study of ALL religions is very revealing.
What appears on the surface a huge puzzle, is really a very common thread, based on geographic location and societies.
One could say RA was the basis of the desert religions.
Worship? Why?
Religion has inserted itself and its inane beliefs into civil law in many countries, including this one. Zero proof of what they claim. The three desert religions in particular - hate each other and have been waring against one another since their inception

I can accept that.

No it's a legit question as not all Christians believe Jesus was god. Many believe he was merely the son of god and completely separate. They passionately believe in Jesus just not that he is god.

You have lived a sheltered Fox News life so you don't know this.

It's still an ignorant queston. No matter is a Christian believes in Jesus or not, God is still God. And for the Christians that do believe in Jesus, Jesus IS God.
So asking a Christian "Which god" is an ignorant question.

In the pursuit of a totalitarian state learn the difference. Stalin sunk a fortune into his cherished Russian Orthodox Church as you have been shown and is to this day as back then considered a hero and saint to them. He killed people who his delusions told him was plannin his assassination. Nothing to do with atheism. And you know this. All of your examples are due to totalitarian states nothing to do with atheism. Unlike hitler who said he was going to punish the Christ killer Jews.

The reign of terror in the French Revolution had to do with dethroning a king and killing his cronies. The overwhelming majority of those people were devout Christians. Note there were certain priests marked for death but not all of them. Actually only a small handful.

Again nothing to do with atheism whatsoever.

And you know it.

Do some reading on the Reign of Terror (1793-4) in France...
The enactment of a law on October 21, 1793 made all suspected priests and all persons who harbored them liable to death on sight.

LOL! I did not tell my teacher that it was 9, she told me. Back then, an elementary student did not talk back or contradict the teacher.

She taught us that we should question authority.

The next Sunday, when I was in Sunday school, I started asking all those questions that I had and was afraid to ask.

After a few questions, the teacher got a bit upset and told me not to question god. I was sent to the preacher who very quickly told me the same thing.

Is your god afraid of questions form a fifth grader?

Right! And they are not allowed to ask any questions! And if they do, they must accept the answer, no matter how stupid.
