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.

Don't try a smokescreen tactic. Answer the question...
If a Muslim told me that their god touched them, I wouldn't believe them, but I'd know they believe it.

Now answer mine. You wrote

Which is a baseless claim, yes? Your opinion, yes?
Unless you can provide evidence of a Muslim with that claim, or preferably many Muslims.

And you'd also have to provide evidence that I don't have said monopoly.

Or you can just admit its your opinion and a claim you have no evidence for....

They were theists.
They were Islamic.

The two brothers suspected of bombing the Boston Marathon appear to have been motivated by a radical brand of Islam.

I never said that Muslims aren't theists, we weren't talking about Muslims in general we were talking about the terrorists in Boston.

You both worship the god of Abraham. The god who wanted Abraham to sacrifice his child as an offering to him.

Fair enough. Allah touches their heads also. You don't have a monopoly on deity groping.
I was rather sarcastically asking why your experience with god is any more valid than their experiences with god? There are an estimated 1.2 billion Muslims in the world. Do you really think it's a baseless claim to suggest that many of them had the same experience as you, that their god touched them and spoke with them? That's the monopoly I referred to. Again, I'll simplify this: why is your god real and their's false?.

Oh.... Now it's "IF", is it?
So then you don't know of any Muslim that claims to have their head touched by Allah?
So you're a liar?
Excellent dodge as usual. He asked you a very straightforward question, why are you unable to answer him. Or are you just unwilling? Personally, I don't think you have a answer, you're trapped in a paradoxical situation. Poor you!!!!

There's no evidence to suggest it wasn't.

You've yet to provide sufficient evidence, or ANY evidence, to confirm your claim.

Thinking, river believes in one god, god the father, god the son and god the holy spirit. 1 + 1 + 1 = 1

Now the muslims only believe in one god, god the father. 1 = 1.

The muslim god demands that non-believers be murdered.

river's god does not and here is the biblical proof: Deuteronomy 13:13-19. "you must attack that town and completely destroy all its inhabitants,"

As you can clearly see, they are two completely different gods.

The muslim god selected Abraham to begin the new religion. By sheer coincidence, river's god did too!

The muslim god called on Abraham to sacrifice his son. By sheer coincidence, river's god did too!

The muslim god sent a flood to kill all but 8 people and... Yes! By sheer coincidence, river's god did too!

Clearly you can see that they are not the same god!

So much wrong with such a notion too, for one, that's not a very powerful god he worships if there is not enough for everyone. Also, how does it last forever if there are limits?
More analysis paralysis?

Your deduction is a guess from your negative atheist thinking. I have no idea what limits there are. The parable of the coins says that the guy with one coin had it taken from him and given to the guy with ten , after wich he was dispatched by sword.

What if you get in front of your god and he tells you that the only way you could deny reality was to be willfully ignorant and that your god hates willful ignorance. That you were lying to yourself and he hates liars. That the bible was a rest of your reason and your willingness to learn and you failed.
What then, bongo. Batty, this is ridiculous, we all know what what God tells us in the bible, why do you prevaricate?
