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.

Damn. Look at those total movements on the right. Those are takeoff and landings. Atlanta alone was over 2600 flights a day.

Just the fraction of those that are higher altitude flights, like commercial airliners, dumps a lot of stuff in the stratosphere. What they don't is dumped below it.

But that couldn't possibly contribute to AGW, could it?

No politics in science. Nope.

So you are saying that humans have no concept of logic built into them?
That they learn this?
If that is true, those not taught formal logic are incapable of logic.
Of course, transcendentant knowledge exists (laws of logic, recognition of absolutes), so your argument for education supplying the basis of all knowledge falls down quickly.
Take as long as you want to answer.:-)

You mistake aptitude for inherited knowledge.

Just as I quoted in my subsequent text...

...Ad hominem.

Is that really the best you can do?

Lets try this again:

To know "anything absolutely" you have to know "everything absolutely".

Atheism denies God, and cannot know anything absolutely.

Therefore it cannot making any absolute knowledge claims, that includes a denial of the existence of God...

...It refutes itself and cannot be taken seriously as a challenge to Gods existence.

Case closed.:-)

God reveals Himself to humanity through the absolutes He created.
Those that deny God realise this, so they deny absolutes rather than accept God.

And the only response left to those clinging wildly onto its pretentious claims is of course ad hominem.

Even some of the best wines are being put in boxes. Modern science has found a way to preserve wine better than corks that rot, and air in partially filled bottles.

That way you can limit your intake, and not feel compelled to finish that second bottle before posting. It will keep its flavor.

How are the laws of logic related to aptitude?

Your response makes no sense.

False analogy.
What? You acted as if observation was the Key! The only thing that you know about Pluto and the BBT is what the scientific community has told you. What credentials do you have to be able to call one a lie and the other valid?

But watch out for this one:

The atheist claims that absolute knowledge us unknowable....

....then makes absolute knowledge claims.

Again displaying the absurdity of the atheistic position.

This suppression of truth, denial of truth, whilst appealing to the truth, as revealed to all by God, shows the internal conflict inside the heart of every atheist.

It is like trying to run away from your own legs...

Do you have a rational argument to make or do you expect everyone to just bow down and accept your arbitrary opinion?

But let us look at your argument.

To imply something is "dumb", means you have an authority of absolute knowledge to point to.

Can you share, as an atheist, where you get this absolute knowledge you are appealing to?

Are you omniscient?

Pluto can be observed empirically with the aid of a telescope...

The big bang cannot.

False analogy...

Thanks for the tip, but I'll pass on that.

So, you are absolutely sure about your absolute god?

You do know that the god you worship was invented about 3,500 years ago, right?

Are you saying that nothing of the Big Bang can be observed? No evidence at all? Is that what you are claiming?
