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.

President Barack Obama will visit Boston on Thursday, three days after a pair of deadly bombings at the Boston Marathon.
The White House announced Mr. Obama will be attending an interfaith service dedicated to the victims of the bombings. He was scheduled to travel to Kansas on Friday for a speech, however the White House said that trip has been canceled.

We were discussing the burnt offerings of human females to God. The claim on the atheist side is that God ordered / demanded it for war victories.

Faith = Belief

Atheist believe there is no God.

Atheist have faith that there is no God.

Faith = religion.
Religion = Cult

Atheist is a cult.

ATHEISM IS A RELIGION as deemed by the courts.
John Calvert, a lawyer and intelligent design proponent declared:

The Seventh Judicial Circuit of the Court of Appeals of the United States held that ATHEISM IS A RELIGION. Therefore, it cannot be promoted by a public school. Currently, public schools are often unwittingly promoting atheism through a dogmatic and uncritical teaching of materialistic theories of origins.[15]

::::::::::

There is a general consensus that:

A person who believes in a specific God is a Theist.

A person who actively denies the existence of God is an Atheist.

Note: see Merriam-Webster

athe·ist\ˈā-thē-ist\
noun
: one who believes that there is nodeity
A person who feels that we have no method by which we can conclude whether a deity exists is an Agnostic.

“The word cult in current popular usage usually refers to a new religious movement or other group whose beliefs or practices are considered abnormal or bizarre.[1] The word originally denoted a system of ritual practices. The word was first used in the early 17th century denoting homage paid to a divinity and derived from the French culte or Latin cultus,‘worship’, from cult-,‘inhabited, cultivated, worshipped,’ from the verb colere,'care, cultivation'.”~ Wikipedia

“Dogma is the official system of belief or doctrine held by a religion, or a particular group or organization”~ Wikipedia.

Organizations of atheists ritually denounce the existence of God. They have become an organization, dedicated to the activity of removing all relic’s of Theism from public places. Their dogma is based entirely on their notion or belief that God does not exist. These organizations work tirelessly towards this effort.

It is no longer possible for an individual to simply state they are an atheist, by reason of personal belief, and not be affiliated, by membership or indirect alignment with these organizations.

These organizations have an official system of belief and their doctrine is to end the belief of theism on this planet.

They are exclusive, ritualistic, and have a belief system which generates activity within and beyond the boundaries of the organization. They are a Cult.

He didn't save Jephthah's daughter did he?

Nope he sat back and let her roast while her Father was dubbed a hero to this day in your religion for sacrificing his daughter to your god, and you know it.

He always posts about a world leader but only when they are doing something with a religious group as he thinks appeal to authority logical fallacy is a winning strategy for some reason.

Basically he is evangelizing non stop on here for his church.

Sure.

Anyone that says "I've read the bible, cover to cover. I understand it." is nuts.

That's like saying you read a neuroscience book and now you're a neurosurgeon.

The bible takes a lifetime to study and know. Most people never do.

OT is exclusively a Jewish book the - Pentateuch
NT is a rewrite, modify of the OT - Bible
Both are pure mythology.
There is no papyrus, no Dead Sea scroll no written Egyptian or Roman or Greek history that recognizes Moses or Jesus ever existed or walked on the face of the earth.
For this tale one must consult either OT or the NT
Apologists have always been necessary to explain the nonsense contained within these.
Not only is the Bible the most popular selling book world is also the least read!
"Both are pure mythology."

Thanks for sharing your opinion.

Faith in the belief that deities don't exist. That's what.
