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.

Atheism requires exactly as much faith as it takes to not believe in leprechauns.

Your job as a cult member is to spread your hateful cult through pretending to be polite to people that your bible openly judges as fools.
Bro. Clownie presently standing at ground zero of the Great Pyramid of Wisdom, Knowledge & Truth, has a suggestion for you...

While in your natural position of bending over...
(1) Reach behind your buttocks
(2) With both hands ... grab hold of your scrawny neck
(3) With a mighty tug ... pull your fat head out of your @ss
(4) Take a deep breath of fresh air
(5) Yes, that is daylight you now see
(6) Now, you may give your dumb atheist knuckle-heads an un-muffled cheer

Yours truly,
Bro. Clownie (God's magical elixir with all the answers for those heathens who have their heads stuck up their arse)

P.S.- The T-Town Clown has to apologize for forgetting to tell you to use some KY or Vaseline before you attempted to remove your pumpkin head from your arse. Sorry!!!:)

The physical consciousness most certainly does.

Glad to see you specified that as a belief, and not an absolute truth.

Space is half the circuit of this existence, Poly. Your ground state. Like a charged capacitor, the energy is released back into the source when the juice stops flowing in that direction, but it does so in the opposite direction and same force. You create a mirror image.

Undemonstrative hypothetical nonsense, your specialty. You would call it bullshit, I call it your faith.

What's your opinion on Near Death experiences?
It's a known fact that the brain when deprived of oxygen will hallucinate, a dying brain will create all sorts of seemingly very real images, the most famous is the light at the end of a long tunnel.

So you value life. That's good. Now if you could live forever in a state of completely healthy existence, would you want to?
Have you really thought this whole living forever thing through? We all have goals and objectives to aspire to, at least most of us. Whatever it is you want to accomplish, whatever goal it is you have in your sights, will be accomplished, what now is left for you. Another goal, another achievement? This will also be fulfilled eventually, then what? More goals? And when you run out of goals, when you run out of things to achieve, when you have done all that you ever wanted to do, what now will you do? Eventually you will have accomplished everything you could possible think of, and eternity will belay have begun. You accomplished all in a thousands years, thought up more goals, and conquered them in the next thousand years. Stretched before you a hundred thousands years, then a million, then millions more after, this to me is what hell really is. Why anyone who has thought this through would wish for this hell, is beyond me!!!!! Good luck, I certainly hope you have many goals and achievements lined up. Of course they will all do you NO good, ands you will eventually run out. As Woody Allen once said..."Eternity is a really long time, especially near the end."

Unlikely. The atoms of the Dean of Clowns would reject Clownie hard enough to put him through a wall.
