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.

Ha HAHA, Too funny, the sound waves creating some kind of religious symbol. We all know how these patterns can be manipulated. Difference thicknesses on the plate on which the sands rests can create whatever pattern you desire. Haver the design you want under a very thin plate laying over the pattern. The sand waves will move the sand into what ever pattern is below the plate. Please don't tell me you think this is actually real!!! You simply can't be that gullible.

Lacking a belief is not a belief. Please do not fail at English.
Unless you have solid evidence that God doesn't exist, you only believe that He doesn't exist.

I'd say the main thing it's shown is that you can't distinguish your beliefs from alien abductions or house-souls.
Neither can you. You only believe souks don't exist, you don't know it.

If its beyond our hearing then it can't be detected, unless by some scientific methods which he never indicates. That sound waves can create pattern on a flat surface is understood, but to jump from that to the universe was created from sound, and then try a make a connection to a holy book is an absurd leap.
What you are tuned to is your limitation. The process works. Also, don't forget harmonics. I thought you were a musician. You can tune another string on another register just by making a piece of paper vibrate when you hit the right harmonic.

Your playing affects other people? The playing on the universal scale affects you.

As far as the future that you are eluding too. There will be more wars and conflicts just as there has been since the beginning.
History has recorded over 200 million deaths under Atheist leadership. We all know Atheist leaders do not have a clean record when it comes to human rights.
If you will remember Jesus feed the five thousand. Atheist leadership embraced communism and starved the millions.

They don't really know how the interior of the earth is constructed. However, from the data they have gathered based upon other physical data and processes, they believe there is a layer of what you call magma, then a layer of liquid iron, then a core of solid iron. Really hot stuff. The mantle is thought to be a plastic like stuff that is not "solid" like the crust. Kind of a semi-liquid or something when it has someplace to go, and becomes your magma.
You could kinda call it a lake of fire if you wish.
What do you call the sky? Birds and various creatures live in it. Why can't a deity live in it and beyond? The sky is just everything above the ground, including distant galaxies.
Your head needs a reset.
Well I sorta disagree because, nobody ever points to around your knee height in reference to the sky. The sky is starting at least
at the height of tall buildings.(skyscrapers)

No, blind faith is gullibility, in other words, it's not belief it's lying to yourself. Belief requires evidence, without evidence you are only hoping, and hope is not fact. The default position is that until evidence is presented then it does not exist, otherwise you'd have to believe in leprechauns, fairies, big foot, alien abductions, even Spiderman.

After all your trolling and 18 posts a day with some reader's digest insult towards atheists and you then post this? The irony meter just exploded.

I seriously doubt that God will allow Himself to be discovered by any means of science.
There is evidence that God exists, you just can't find it with a PhD.
Any god that hides that good, doesn't want to be found.
If a god cannot be found by any means of science, for what ever reason that may be. It doesn't exist either absolutely, or by it's own choice positively.

So you admit to believing in the invisible sky wizard. Yes Dave thinks his god is up there in the clouds waving at birds.

Believe what don't exist? Souks?

And how many times do you need it explained to you that without any observable evidence there is no reason to accept something?

So, if there are no tall buildings, the sky starts at the ground?

Up in the clouds, in and across the universe and beyond.

I stole a motorcycle once and hid it.

I didn't want it to be found. But it existed.

I had a vial of crack cocaine in my room in the lock-down psych ward.

Didn't want it to be found, so I smoked it. Had no choice, but they didn't understand.

That's not true.

Some things are rightfully believed to exist by logical inference.

Your campaign to appear smart is falling on its face.

Orrie, how do you find something that is part of you as well as you being a part of it? How do you separate and observe?
