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.

I guess once you get past his racism, bigotry and intolerance of anyone not like him quoting his fox news talking points Dave is probably a great old senile guy.

You guys seem much more emotion based rather than rational based "freethinkers".

Even to the point of claiming "science" as an atheist invention, and as "proof" there is no deity. All science can or has done is provide a methodology of assemblage. It certainly hasn't disproved a creator.

BTW, all modern science was started and enabled by theists.
Do you ever ask yourself why you have to lie so much?

No.

No.

Did Stewart?

I dunno. Did he?

Did I say science has disproved a creator?

No.

"All modern science was started and enabled by theists."

If that's true, then it happened in spite of them being theists, not because of it.

Anything else I can clear up for ya, Dave?

Translation:-
"I don't understand Math, Physics.... therefore goddidit."
In short you you are just plain too dumb, too lazy to learn.
You claim to be a teacher so do you claim to be knowledgeable about math and physics?
If so then you should be able to shoot me down in 5 seconds, but you dont. You just post stupid crap like this because you cant prove me wrong....all you are is just another left wing teacher who takes kids in the school and sends them out dumber than they went in and indoctrinates them with atheism and a sense of entitlement.
You are truly a parasite bitchard.

Poor Topix atheists.

They don't know what they believe in, don't believe in, or even what they are against. They just yammer, and quote comedians in support of what they don't know.

It all stems from reaction to one old book, and the civilization built around it, not any great intellectual insight. The disaffected. So they screech a lot.

They want a new world built upon that same civilization.

But alas, they lack the brains or maturity to maintain one, even if they could create it.

Topix atheists seem to be more concerned with a shrink wrapped version of marxism as in the Frankfurt School variety.
To follow their marxist beliefs they must declare themselves enemies of God, it is mandatory.
Hating God is just a means to an end to them, if it were an end in itself then they would have more ability to prove the 'non existence of God' but they have proven nothing.
Buddhists and Jains are non-theist but the Topix atheists hate them as well. Why? Because they have a definite sense of morals and behaviour as well as good and evil.
It is not 'relative' to them as it is with atheists.
Communist/Atheist China quite happily slaps around Buddhists and the atheists of the west say nothing.
This is the sort of 'nothing' that Topix atheists believe in.

They never had the spark of true intellect struck within their heads. They got so very dependent on others telling them they are intellectual because they follow the line they are being fed, acting upon their emotions, that they can never strike it on their own.
