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.

<quoted text>Senile Dave strikes out again! Being an atheist simply means you do not believe in a god, it has no other connections or identity.

You would think by now you would finally put this together and stop making such a braying jackass out of yourself.

Oh well at least you are great for a laugh as our punch line :)
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]

2.3% what a joke your religion is!

You claim all humans are born atheist.
Ok that means at one time you had 100% of the human population. The current percentage of the world population that is atheist is at 2.3%.

That means that 97.7% of your congregation has left your faith!!

WTF is wrong with you guys?
97.7%!!!!!!!
Do you realize how many people that is?

Man you're not just losing them at that rate there running from you! LMFAO

I am especially proud of my volunteer work and donations to the humanist cause. Every year I go to the Philippines and spend thousands on food,water, clothing and medicine for the needy there. After a horrific typhoon and flooding there I was there amongst others 14 hours a day handing out supplies, giving life saving injections and treatments to those who lost their home. I stood and watched as homeless children lined up easily 3 miles deep for a package of crackers sandwich fruit and bottle of water. Unwanted children who were born because the Christian ran theocracy light government makes it nearly impossible for a woman to obtain birth control. My wife is in pre-med classes and wants to practice medicine there free to help those poor children. Here in the states I collect donations for running in marathons with the money going to children's charities and cancer or HIV awareness programs.
I have seen first hand time and time again the damage and heart breaking situations brought on by theists. The same theists who come crawling to us to help fix their mess! Oh but while we are fixing it are we thanked? Nope. We barely get the figurative broom in hand and they are shrieking at us for not believing in their imaginary friend.
Honor? I guess it is a relative term. The dozen of urban low income students I assist for free with their biology and pharmaceutical homework at two different colleges locally would probably say good ole KJ is an alright dude.
Now if coming on topix and giving the theists a little taste of backbone, the theists who try to intimidate and silence non believers because they think we should all be meek and humble and tolerate their abuse and repeated logical fallacies makes me vile, Without reason, Disrespectful, In someone's opinion? So be it, hmmm I will chuckle about how vile And disrespectful I am Friday at U of L for the 6 hours I am assisting the students there as a volunteer. Or perhaps this summer as I am passing out thousands of dollars worth of free medicine and other essentials trying to save some more homeless from dying. Yes I was walking by a group of people there and they were huddled together praying loudly and crying. I looked in and a young girl was on the ground dying of dehydration. Instead of getting her water and rushing her to the hospital they stood there holding hands and praying! I grabbed my cell phone and called for an ambulance and started trying to get her to drink. Slowly she sipped the water as the praying continued. The ambulance came after almost an hour and reluctantly took her to the hospital, the paramedic said she was good as dead and best leave it in the hands of Jesus same thing the crowd thought. She died 18 hours later. They didn't even know her name and couldn't figure it out.
I guess I'll somehow deal with being called disrespectful.

Poor Topix atheists. They are so clueless about their "non-belief". It reflects their lack of understanding and a certain difficulty in understanding language. This does appear to be a hardwired issue in their brains. Their neural nets are incapable of making associations beyond literal translations. One reason they have such trouble grasping allegories and metaphors. They can't collate the thoughts, ideas, and perceptions the normal human mind can do in an instant. Keeps them stuck on stupid.

If they weren't so juvenile and obnoxious they would be more pitiable.
Poor Dave you live your life though topix. Nothing better to do then wake up and log on and judge others.

Maybe if your life was not so miserable and depressing you wouldn't be here trying to convince us of how superior your pseudo-intelligence is and actually live a life.

Have you been rejected in the real world that many times you are afraid to go out there.

I would feel sorry for you but you are an arsehole!

Yeah, I got to admit, not being able to threaten people with an eternity of torture kinda loses your captive audience.

Should I bother to point out your numbers are totally invalid if you consider countries where education is common, and high, and employment is lucrative?

hehe. no, that would mean pointing out that about 90% of your pals are barely literate. oops :D

Also Dave if your knowledge was real and intelligent you would not be the only one privileged to it.

Why don t you attack theist for their irrational thinking... That's right they believe in a god, who cares what about all their irrational think that goes along with it, which I know you would disagree with, just as long as they believe in a god!

Calm down, read what I wrote. I didn't say your god exists. I didn't even say he didn't exist. I constructed an hypothetical where he did exist - I can make an hypothetical about talking unicorns if you like, would you like? okay.

Just imagine, if you were walking through the forest one day, and ambling softly between the trees was a pink unicorn. He trots over to you and says in a slightly irritatingly squeeky voice: "clown, I am your god, worship me". Then he turns around, kicks you in the nuts, and runs off. What is your next action?

There you are. are you going to accuse me of believing in a talking pink unicorns now? please do. Watching you struggle is pretty funny.

When you have suffered all of the head injuries that Dave has and chopped off your own fingers such is to be expected.

thanks for playing dave. Never before have I seen such an overt declaration of the existence of pink talking unicorns in anyone who is not a 9 year old girl.

Someone took "my little pony" a little too seriously methinks.
