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.

Possession of such is assumed for the female species of human material construction. In the genetic blueprints or something.
You claim to be a woman, and claimed to be a girl.
Actually, no, many have them removed due to medical issues. If that is your only qualification for being female, then you are at least admitting that all transgendered who get surgery are female.

Thus you are insulting a large portion of the female population while accepting the transgendered people for what they claim to be, ultimately being a hypocrite.

My accountant said you were a great asset, he said if I adopt you I would get a huge tax break and be able to claim for all sorts of things.

Youre the one claiming to be female, what does every female have?
But you dont, I was and still am right in pointing out that you are just another poof in a dress.
When I posted your own words in which you said you are 'asexual' you said that it meant you did not desire sex. I said to go without sex meant you are either chaste or celibate, you then farted out that 'asexual' applies to you because it is used 'emotionally'.
You are either male or female? True? Or a hermaphrodite.
You accused me of projecting when I brought the hermaphrodite issue.
You claim not to have a vagina.
That just leaves one possibility left......
You are just another POOF!

It will be an intellectual exercise to watch this video and get a deeper understanding of some issues, like religion. Topix atheists can ignore it. People with brains may get something out of it. Get through the intro and a few minutes after he starts speaking.

Of course the graphic presentation and events he makes couldn't be exact, but look at the representative nature of it.

You can't help but note when looking at his planetary alignment how much it also represents this.

That was a long time ago.

I have posted about my own noticing how the earth cores would also make the earth look very much like an eye.

We could stand to start looking at things differently.

I found this Blog interesting.

I think he got my name wrong though its not Langan it's Langoliers.

"I just finished the book "Outliers" by Malcolm Gladwell. Among the topics are one on Christopher Langan who has an IQ of 195, which is supposed to be the highest in the world. After finishing the chapter I googled him, and found out that he has been studying physics on his own for pretty much his entire life but only went to college for one year.

What interested me was that he has been working on something that he calls "Cognitive-Theoretic Model of the Universe". While I don´t understand much of it (few does) I was surprised to see that he actually believes in God. Not only that, he claims that it is possible to mathematically prove that God exists and that we have a soul. At first glance I was amazed of this, since I´m a complete atheist (and swedish - none of use are believers). But I can´t help thinking that, since his mind are more powerful than anyone else´s, maybe he has seen further than anyone ever have. This scares me a little bit, b/c obv if he is correct I really don´t want to die for obvious reasons "

When, how and where did god reveal himself to humanity? Does he do it every few years so that everyone can experience it? How does this happen?
We'll wait.
In many ways.

Through the transcendent absolute laws in the universe.

Through the Bible,(ever wondered why the Bible bothers you so much?).

Through your conscience.

So that you are without excuse.

Of course, you have been suppressing that truth, as all atheists do.

It is not a matter of knowledge, it is a matter of the will...

<quoted text>Only a Theists could pose such a stupid question, absolutely stocking!! Explain what being an Atheists has to do with art. Do you think art is important and if so why? Do you feel that art in any form can only be considered important if religion is involved?
Art is one of the things that separates humans form the rest of the animals on the planet. Art is the result of an actively creative mind. Creativity is what has advanced our species in many different areas not just art. Science, medicine and the general understanding of the world in which we live. Creativity expands ones mind, moves you forward, opens doors you thought never exited. To create something, anything, that has never exited before, is more rewarding than you can imagine. No God or religion is necessary for any creative endeavors.
Atheists are just a smear on the windscreen of the universe, a chemical accident.

Why should art be important, why should creativity be important, when you are just a process of chemical accidents that has no free will?

Again you must show proof for your god before you can assign properties to it. That is logical.
Why don't you just copy and paste your link to the transcendential argument apologetic page you are stealing from?
It would save time. It's a piss poor argument that relies on jumping to conclusions and special pleading.

Truth is self attesting, that is obvious.

Do you disagree with that?

Atheism proves nothing, it is the logical progression of reason.
While atheism sometimes ridicules the Organized Superstition aka religions and those delusional or gullible enough to believe their dogma, it remains the future.
Religion will become extinct. A curiosity.
Religion cannot 'evolve' it is stuck on intractable dogma. What will 'evolve' is the desire to maintain its power over the dim witted.
If atheism is the logical progression of reason, then please account for the absolute laws of logic that transcend humanity...
