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.

Excerpt:
Bob Jones: Big-mouthed Bigot from the Boondocks
The son of a Confederate soldier and Alabama sharecropper, the young and poorly educated Bob Jones (1883-1968) discovered a youthful talent for memorizing scripture.
With a natural flair for oratory, the "boy preacher" warmed the hearts and softened the brains of the yokels. At 15 Bob was already an itinerant Methodist and on his way to Jesus loot, an enterprise he continued for half a century, until upstaged by the new boy on the block and dangerous liberal, Billy Graham.
Proudly intolerant, Jones was a racist, anti-Catholic, anti-Darwinian, who supported the Klan. In 1927, with the tide of history moving against religious reactionaries, BJ put money into the Bob Jones College (later University), the purpose of which was to train missionaries and teach the "Christian alternative" to reality.

I don't think that I heard of him, but it does not surprise me. I have thought about going into the business myself! christians don't read their bibles, so I could tell them anything I wanted.

That's a completely false statement. A blanket statement like that with no examples to back it up suggests that you're more afraid of alternative points of views and examination of your primitive superstitions and faith.

Hey, Mr.Morality and scholar, got a request for you.

Can you show me in the Atheist Bible where I should love my fellow man and not kill him just because I don't like him?

I don't *believe* something is possible until I see evidence of it. It is always possible new evidence will come up. But when many people over a lot of time have searched and not found anything pointing in a certain direction, I feel comfortable ignoring that possibility, at least until some dramatic evidence appears.
You don't understand either concept - evidence or possibility.

Events occur every day for which there previously existed no evidence. According to you, as you do not believe these events possible, you are proven wrong every day.

I only prove you wrong once every week or so. So I'm probably wasting my time then.

Here ya go!

Anyone arrogant enough to reject the verdict of the judge or of the priest who represents the LORD your God must be put to death. Such evil must be purged from Israel.(Deuteronomy 17:12 NLT)

You should not let a sorceress live.(Exodus 22:17 NAB)

A man or a woman who acts as a medium or fortuneteller shall be put to death by stoning; they have no one but themselves to blame for their death.(Leviticus 20:27 NAB)

Whoever strikes his father or mother shall be put to death.(Exodus 21:15 NAB)

Oh shit! I'm sorry! I took this morality from the christian bible!

Just a little truthful humor this morning.:-)

Jesus walks into a hotel, throws 3 nails on the counter and asks the clerk... "Can you put me up for the night?"

Wilson's Nails

Wilson runs a nail factory and decides his business needs a bit of advertising. He has a chat with a friend who works in marketing and he offers to make a TV ad for Wilson's Nails.

"Give me a week," says the friend, "and I'll be back with a tape."

A week goes by and the marketing executive comes to see Wilson. He puts a cassette in the video and presses play. A Roman soldier is busy nailing Jesus to the cross. He turns to face the camera and says with a grin "Use Wilson's Nails, they'll hold anything."

Wilson goes mad shouting: "What is the matter with you? They'll never show that on TV. Give it another try, but no more Romans crucifying Jesus!"

Another week goes by and the marketing man comes back to see Wilson with another tape. He puts it in the machine and hits play. This time the camera pans out from a Roman standing with his arms folded to show Jesus on the cross. The Roman looks up at him and says 'Wilson's Nails, they'll hold anything'.

Wilson is beside himself. "You don't understand: I don't want anything with Jesus on the cross! Now listen, I'll give you one last chance. Come back in a week with an advertisement that I can broadcast."

A week passes and Wilson waits impatiently. The marketing executive arrives and puts on the new video. A naked man with long hair, gasping for breath, is running across a field. About a dozen Roman soldiers come over the hill, hot on his trail. One of them turns to camera and says 'If only we had used Wilson's Nails!'.

So you couldn't find anything, huh?

Seems those kind of things are codified in one book? The one that has probably saved your nasty ass hundreds of times?

Not only are Topix atheists obnoxious and stupid, they are intellectual property thieves.
