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.

Any other questions?

I never compared emotions to God.

I compared the impossibility of proving either - especially on a forum like this.

I do no believe in god, I reject the theory's poorly crafted assertion.

Until we have observable proof that god is indeed real it is logical to assume he is the by product of ancient people's attempt to explain what they didn't understand.

Sorry I know you have been programmed to bleat your assertion free of any corroborating evidence and then wail for others to prove it wrong. But in the real world that doesn't work.

Provide proof for your assertion or people of reason have no cause to believe.

Unless you think you can prove God is a "work of fiction"......

You've been trying and trying and trying.

And getting nowhere.

I have already demonstrated much half wit. You are seriously claiming in ancient times the message of Jesus was not proselytized?

Time for you to once back up your assertion. Show this to be true.

Go.

<quoted text>STOP. Hold on....

You're gonna hafta demonstrate that they did, in 'ancient times', stand on the streets, tell others stories, told stories dramatically,'meant' to entertain, and acted dramas.

Then you're gonna hafta demonstrate that did in fact spread the word of Jesus.

Go.

I own Q squared, and just about all of his books. Peter David is an awesome writer.

The dune buggy scene was lame. Why use a dune buggy which is open to danger when you have a perfectly good shuttle with phasers to use? Because they thought it would look cool?

Okay that's fine but at least have there be a reason to use the damn thing!

I never understood why in the movies Captain Picard becomes this violent blood thirsty guy when in the show he is so intelligent and reasoning.

Look at power play, there are a dozen times he and others could have resorted to violence to end the stand off quickly. Instead they used reason and patience and saves everyone without loss of life.

First contact? He kills a crew member while transforming into a Borg even though he states before that you can go back as he himself did. The show Picard would never do such a thing.

Fck you Rick Berman!

<quoted text>My favorite part was when Q gave Data the gift of laughter. But when Geordi chimed in, I was like "WTF Geordi! Let him laugh!"

I thought the dune buggy was cool. You know that scene was filmed not far from me? It's strange that most aliens worlds have a strong resemblance to Southern California....

There's a great Q book from Peter David called "Q Squared", you should check it out.

There's also a book trilogy centered around Q.

Q-Space, Q-Zone, Q-Strike. They're on amazon and only a few bucks each, actually I recently bought them for .01 cents.....

I guess they will need to record it the next time god calls.

How do you come to grips that god before came down to make commandments about blended fibers and shrimp... But not thousands of different variations of his so called religion and all the death and destruction because of those in fighting?

Sorry it doesn't make much sense.

I do, but remember, rules of logic are statements about conceptual patterns of thought. The mind should not be compared to the universe, if this is where I think you're going with this.

A genetic change of the population. Meaning, tiny differences that add up, like hair color, skin color, etc. The genetic traits are more successful are passed to the next generation, the failed one do not. What you are looking for, the corcoduck, would destroy the theory of evolution and pretty much every theory in biology.

Psalms 23 while at first sounds sweet it's actually pretty dark and twisted!

The poem talks about god treating him like a sheep that he must unquestioning follow this god and if he does all will be great. It teaches people to abandon reason and their inquiring mind and instead like a sheep just blindly bleat along.

And we all know how awesome the so called writer David's story ended! Lol!

You need to prove the god you claim is possible / are lying about before using long words you don't understand.
