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.

I can actually levitate my mind to a place no Theists can go. Not sure what you are besides someone who enjoys making pointless smart ass comments. Theist maybe?

Here is one clue there is no such thing.
If you possessed a soul that could see without physical eyes, like
in a OOBE suggests you could. Then it would be useless to close your eyelids , because you would still see everything. This shows that OOBE's are nothing but a brain condition. Also.....
If you possessed knowledge independent of brain tissue.
When people suffer severe brain trauma , they would not lose memories and would not need therapy to regain motor function.
There are many lines of evidence there is no such thing as a soul.
A large piece of evidence is that not once in 200,000 years has anyone been able to positively communicate back from the state of death. Scam artist and charlatan mediums don't count.
If something exists after death, it can't effect the physical.
Doesn't exist within the physical, so it doesn't exist in our reality.
LMAO!!!

"Doesn't exist within the physical, so it doesn't exist in our reality."

Spoken like a good little brainwashed atheist.

Perfect. Thank you.
"I don't believe in either one."
That's all you had to say from the get-go.
I did.

Now can you explain why you believe in human souls but not house souls when you've admitted they both hold the same amount of evidence?

<quoted text>Yes, and your reply to this post was equally amusing. Personally I don't think you've ever ventured onto the ocean. Just waxing poetic, or so you think, about your wasted life.
My appreciation and total understanding of music has served me well for the 68 years that I've been on this wonderful planet. I have made a very good living, raised a family, and achieved almost all of my preset goals through music. I sit writing this post on my beautiful 32 foot sailboat, complements of my success in the music industry.
Gaining knowledge of any kind is a good idea,,thought you knew....oh well, you can lead a horse to water but......you know the rest!!!!!!!
Very nice memories.

All totally meaningless when you can't remember them anymore.

I do wax poetic a lot. Comes from observing life and seeing the music and prose that exists in it. Hard to do that when you toot your horn so much.

So, you think what you have done here will bear fruit for eternity, surviving the winds of universal and man made changes? Just what do think mankind will blossom into?

Your notions of theism and its capabilities is extremely limited.

Your mind can go no further than this earth and what is in it. Theists can actually go beyond the universe.

I never said that, you did.

Can you categorically prove that a soul does not exist, beyound all reasonable doubt?

BTW I hear the flat earth society is looking for new members. Sounds like you'd fit the bill.

You admitted they both hold no evidence and neither can be disproven. So why do you accept one and not the other?

I don't need to. The burden of proof is on YOU, RR.

I'm an atheist like yourself, but when I read drivel like your comment on "anti-soul" energy, I immediately switch to smartass mode. I've read your prior posts and concluded that you were levelheaded and rational, something sorely needed on this thread, then suddenly you start this sophomoric rant about untapped energy that only atheists and freethinkers have access to. Really? Very disappointing.

It's pretty disingenuous to compare an open practice that is defended as ethical to an illegal, underground practice.
A few Atheist bring up biblical slavery all the time. Never say a word about ongoing slavery. The fact is they don’t give a damn about slavery. If they did they would be an advocate against it, but their not.

I’m the one that has to remind people that slavery is ongoing issue even today in nearly every country in the world. Lackadaisical attitudes works for slavery and not against it.

The same fear you would have if you did something wrong and your father found out about it, that kind of fear, the fear of a loving father who has to correct his child. Do you disapprove of a loving father doing his job?

Your complaint is nonsensical.

Biblical slavery is brought up because the Bible is claimed to be morally perfect. That has nothing to do with modern day slavery.

I'm not the one claiming something exists that there is absolutely zero evidence for it's existence. So who's the brain washed person here? You were told there is a soul, and are brainwashed into believing it.
