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.

Racist bigot right wingers like you tend to gravitate towards the likes of Bush.

So you voted against him?

The overwhelming majority of Bush's backers were Christian. I notice you ran away from Christians standing in the way of medical advancements and all the lives lost to that. You also are still unable to name another group of people called by the racist term you used to describe Latinos.

Since you keep cowering from that I accept your surrender as I so often have to do for your failures.

Which fundies and which wars?

Bush isn't my hero, for one. And for two, MANY different groups of Americans backed him in the war effort, not just Christians.

Derp.

Several Protestant churches the discovery Institute for starters....

Still unable to grasp the Jesus DNA joke? Wow I mean Gilbert Grape could have put that together by now.

Myself being multiracial would never say such a thing about African Americans.

And again reject, millions of deaths per year that could have been prevented if not for Christians. Most people could have figured that out, I keep forgetting how low your IQ is ditch digger.

That's YOUR mentality.

The expenditure of the [Roman Catholic] Church is estimated as $170 billion in 2010. Of this, 57% was spent on health-care networks, 28% on colleges and universities, 6% on dioceses, parishes and schools, and 2.7% on charitable activities.

Now that's just the RCC, which is roughly half of Christianity.....

Wanna combine ALL of Christianity?

Wanna name one single atheist group that donates $73 BILLION dollars?

No?

Imagine that.

Your 'point' was that there are over 60,000 versions of Christianity.
You're wrong and you know it.
Technically, since all Christians are suspicious of the doctrinal purity of the guy in the next pew, there are nearly 2 billion different Christian cults-of-one.

Do you expect all Atheist to join groups, have regular meetings etc. Then we'd be just like religious people! Most Atheist in this world don't belong to any Atheist organisation.
People who don't believe in God donate and also do great things for their community's, silly.
There are also religious people who have done great things and if you were all more like Jesus and Mother Teresa, the world be a great place.
Charitable behavior gets big perks in the afterlife, according to Christian and Islamic theology. Philanthropy, in these creeds, is a highly profitable long-term investment, a down payment on ecstatic immortality. Quite the bargain!

But atheists? No heaven awaits them. No pearly gates, eager virgins, harping angels, fluffy clouds, or succulent oasis. No reward whatsoever. Atheists have no faith, no expectation of benefit from a deity. So, atheists are probably selfish, right? Pitiless, parsimonious. Totally stingy misers, not passing a penny off to the poor…correct?

WRONG! Atheists, non-believers, secular humanists, skeptics—the whole gamut of the godless have emerged in recent years as inarguably the most generous benefactors on the globe. That’s right. Hordes of heretics are the world’s biggest damned philanthropists. Both individually and in groups, heathen infidels are topping the fundraising charts.

First, the facts.

The current most charitable individuals in the United States, based on “Estimated Lifetime Giving,” are:

1) Warren Buffett (atheist, donated $40.785 billion to “health, education, humanitarian causes”)

2) Bill & Melinda Gates (atheists, donated $27.602 billion to “global health and development, education”)

3) George Soros (atheist, donated $6.936 billion to “open and democratic societies”)

A century ago, one of the USA’s leading philanthropists was Andrew Carnegie, atheist.

Regarding “group efforts”—Kiva.org, the micro-financing organization that has distributed $261 million to people in 61 nations, has “lending teams” that post their generous efforts online. The leading team on November 22, 2011, is “Atheists, Agnostics, Skeptics, Freethinkers, Secular Humanists, and the Non-Religious.” These 18,127 benevolent blasphemers have lent $5,623,750 in 187,920 loans. Their simple motto is:“We loan because we care about the suffering of human beings.”

Trailing behind in the #2 slot are the “Kiva Christians” who have loaned $3,211,250. Their supernatural rallying cry is,“We loan because: Pure and undefiled religion before God the Father is this: to care for orphans and widows in their misfortune and to keep oneself unstained by the world.(James 1:27)”

I’m gleeful that the irreligious are the most altruistic because I was incessantly told the inverse by credo-worshipping commenters after I published my article “Tax the Churches and Give the Revenue to Hungry Children.” Pious posters informed me that my secular proposal would seriously damage charitable causes, because it would hamper the vast, sublime generosity of the devout. Ha! The numbers above suggest that their contention is just the usual sanctimonious drivel. A favorite slogan of atheists is,“We Don’t Need God To Be Good” and the philanthropy figures I’ve presented indicate that is exactly the case, indeed, we seem to be “BETTER without God.”

You're an assumptive, bigoted bastard like my grandpa was. He hated all black people for no reason other than they were black. He knew none of them, but presumed to know them all.

For your information, I did not vote for Bush.
