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.

In an ultra-high vacuum chamber chilled to 10 degrees above absolute zero (10 Kelvin), Seol Kim and Ralf Kaiser of the Hawaiian team simulated an icy snowball in space including carbon dioxide, ammonia and various hydrocarbons such as methane, ethane and propane. When zapped with high-energy electrons to simulate the cosmic rays in space, the chemicals reacted to form complex, organic compounds, specifically dipeptides, essential to life. At UC Berkeley, Mathies and Amanda Stockton then analyzed the organic residues through the Mars Organic Analyzer, an instrument that Mathies designed for ultrasensitive detection and identification of small organic molecules in the solar system. The analysis revealed the presence of complex molecules – nine different amino acids and at least two dipeptides – capable of catalyzing biological evolution on earth.

Wow! in an incredibly sophisticated lab , using mans most brilliant technology the experiment was a sucess..........it produced amino acids and dipeptides.

Uh , is that life? NO, all it proved was that these type things couldn't happen on a wet rock billions of years ago. Wake up!

POPE CANDIDATE AXED OVER TRASHY FACEBOOK PHOTOS

VATICAN CITY (The Borowitz Report)—The brave new world of social media torpedoed the chances of a leading papal candidate today, as a Dutch cardinal struggled to explain newly surfaced Facebook photos showing him on a 2007 spring-break romp in Tampa.

Cardinal Bonifacius Steuer had been on the shortlist to replace Benedict XVI as Pope, but his fellow cardinals abandoned him after the startling emergence of the photos, which chronicle Steuer on a seventy-two-hour nonstop-party rampage in Florida.

In the Facebook photo album, which Cardinal Steuer labeled “Tampa Phun,” the Dutchman appears at a dizzying array of frat parties and strip clubs, throwing gang signs at the camera and steadily drinking from two Old Milwaukees mounted on a beer hat.

Tracy Klugian, a job-placement specialist who helps papal candidates navigate the labyrinthine Pope-selection process, says that Cardinal Steuer’s downfall should serve as a cautionary tale to all Pope candidates who are active on social media.

“If you’re serious about becoming Pope, look at every single photo you’ve posted on Facebook and Instagram,” Mr. Klugian says.“If there’s someone on your arm who makes you look fallible, crop them out.”

While Mr. Klugian believes that the cardinals’ decision to blackball Steuer was a little harsh, he says that “at the end of the day, they couldn’t live with pictures out there of a Pope in a funny hat.”

Well, wash your hands good. That wasn't an apology I handed you.
You need to get a better grip on your projections, Catcher. Less messy that way.
When you modify a verb, in this case "wash", the modifier must be an adverb, in this case "well", not the adjective "good".

Not very well done, dude.(Did you notice my use of "well" to modify the verb "to do"?)

Did you go to school at all?

1. the puddle goo church version.
There was a great explosion billions of years ago that caused the universe. The earth formed and it was a hot molten mass of lava, somehow, know one knows how ,but water came to the earth in tremendous amounts to the point that 70 percent of the earth was covered. Then! in these primordial seas the miracle of life began,and through the billions of years starting with bacteria type life, all life emerged through the primordial puddle to evolve into man.
2. A creator caused the universe to begin and created life.
Thats pretty straightforward.You either believe it or you don't.
..or you can believe that an uncaused explosion resulted in the universe, physical and natural laws, and all life.
or you can go with science thats posits always existing multiverse,

You will have to explain yourself, because science does not have a field of study in theism or lack of it period. So state your case exactly.

Atheist's do not reject Popes, in fact he can be "the Pope" as long as he wants. Atheists refute there is a higher authority the Pope communicates with. In short the Pope is the representative of a fictitious deity.

Personally I try to avoid the concept and word belief.
Which is similar to faith, or thinking things can be so without evidence. I reserve faith or belief both to be something I trust to happen in real people I know. Such as "I believe you will do the right thing".

Amusing. By my belief in a higher existence I automatically can look down at you. You are stuck to the ground, so to speak.
As far as your perception of our relative positions, if you weren't hanging upside down in that hole you would see the truth.
As far as your sense of worth referred to in previous posts, it is based soley on demand. As I suggested before, if you wish to give a concert in a park the same time as Buckethead, be sure to keep plenty of peanuts in your pocket for the squirrels. Who knows, that might even attract other old codgers and nut cases wanting to feed the squirrels, adding to your audience. Would help your ego.
Too funny, you sit in the corner wiping droll from your chin and proclaiming the cosmos was created by an invisible sky wizard. The one who created our species by scooping up some dirt and blowing on it. I'll be content with what cosmologists and astrophysics tells me, at least its based on the neutralistic realm. Most intelligent people will take naturalism over myths and magic any day.

I don't have time for mundane concerts in the park like your pukebucket dude, I have more important work that I'm doing. BTW, what ups with you and squirrels with nuts? This is about the third time you've brought this up. Are you sure you're ok? I know the delusional things must get to you after a while, but this hangup with squirrels and nuts should be a concern for you. Check it out with your nearest psychiatrist. Do it sooner than later.....just saying!!!!!
