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.

He knows that but he can't feel better unless he make you out to be a gullible as he is.

Learn it? I memorized it as a child, or did you miss that little point I made a long time ago. I was raised Mormon, one of the things they do is encourage and practically trick all their children to memorize it. Look up the game called "Scripture Chase," I was region champion most of my childhood.
Mormon, lol I said memorize the bible, not the Book of Mormon.

So...... Does that make you a British Mormon Jew?

Since there is no evidence that there is no god, atheists use their faith (complete trust) to strengthen their belief that god isn't real.

This is not about what 'they' thought. These are god's laws, not man's laws.
Again, Jesus put an expiration date on god's laws.'Til heaven and Earth pass, not one dot shall be taken from the law.
Now, try to answer as if you concede that your loving god came up with those laws.
I knew it was pointless. Your mind is so made up you are unable to think of anything else.

Matthew 5:18 simply means that all prophecy will come to pass, just like says Isaiah 7:14.

Why do you think all laws are permanent, forever and to everyone?

I'm sure you know about the "eating pork is bad" law. And I'm sure you've used it on people. But do you know that in Acts, God showed the Apostle that all animals were now clean?

You are really stupid. The Mormons read three books, the Book of Mormon, the Doctrine and Covenants, and the King James bible. Scripture Chase for the Mormons includes all three books. Learn something about things before betraying your ignorance on matters.

Agree or not?
Go.
<quoted text>
16 All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness, 17 so that the servant of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work.

Of course I agree.

I bet you think that scripture is talking about the bible and not a person, huh? It's ok, most people misread that scripture.

Oh, and there's no evidence that there are no dragons. So you are saying you have faith that dragons are not real.

Yes. And I have faith that leprechauns aren't real. And I have faith that aliens haven't visited earth.

You see, I've got no problem admitting when something is a belief of mine - like I believe that God is real.

Atheists claim to cling on to evidence-based realities only but refuse to admit that they believe god isn't real.

It's your shortcoming, not mine.

Used to be a tavern over at Bradfordsville called "Riverside". Sat beside the Rolling Fork River.

Full of rednecks.

Is that where you got your name?

I had many a fight in there. The owner hit me over the head with a homemade blackjack once. It was a tube sock sewed full of buck shot.

Thank God I was drunk. Or I would have hurt the man.

Yup. You're also using your faith to tell you that God isn't real.

I'm glad you're admitting that.
