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.

The Evangelical Atheist parallels with religious fundamentalism are obvious and startling: the conviction that they are in sole possession of truth , the troubling lack of tolerance for the views of their critics and the fact that atheists can never prove their view.

A start. Try measuring volumes and expanding those shapes, especially adding them together and figuring volumes. Look for that perfect center line. After a while you will see the difference between the true physical world and the math illusional one. Putting that math to paper as drawings turns the mental into the physical.
To be less vague. Doing that sort of thing introduces the idea of separateness within a whole. That perfect centerline dividing something larger. It is a shared line when dividing, but when you add two shapes of the same theoretical volume, they can't merge, You have two theoretical lines adjacent to each other. That is the clean math stuff. Reality is a lot fuzzier. There is no clean math explanation for existence.

Even your "particles" are really fuzzballs. Swirling energy, not "hard" and clean lined "objects".

All theist lies from a creationist who doesn't have any proof of god.

Do the world a favour and stop pretending to talk about science, grow some balls like a real man and prove your god.

Pansy ass theist twit.

Amusing.

Go stick you head back into the tube and gain some more knowledge. They will tell you how smart you are for understanding the world as they tell you it is.

No one else will tell you that you are.

I mean seriously you really sounded ignorant back there.
I think often you type in anger because we are factually destroying you so much, and that leads to so many of your major melt downs. I pity you actually. If this was high school you would be the LD kid barely keeping up with division, arguing math theory with kids in calculus II.

No I don't.

You're the one that's doubting.

Since you two seem to be so hell-bent on proof, logic would dictate that you keep your minds open that God *might* exist unless proven otherwise.

But you don't.

You've come to your own irrational conclusions, without proof.

Way to go, "freethinker"...

Every person naturally knows that we came from somewhere they can't understand. Not giving God his due for the impossible (in human terms) existence is their first mistake. Instead they busy themselves with proving that something CAN come from nothing.

You are exactly wrong in your premise.
Example of truth:

Every scientist knows that,
we came from processes we "can" understand.

Now when you follow from this premise your whole storyline falls apart.
