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>Fear? That would imply a sense of danger, something likely to cause pain or something or someone is a threat. None of that was a motivating factor in my striving for success. Ego was the motivation. The fact that I can do something better than the next person, be a better player, make myself more valuable that the next, compose or arrange something more interesting or more complex than the next, this is what drives the people in my profession. We are constantly trying to "oneup" the guy next to you, either with our playing or our writing. We hold "cutting" sessions, the idea is to climb on stage with another player, in my case another trumpet player. Whoever plays first, sets the parameters, "here's how fast I can play, how high, how intricate I can weave through a chord progression. Then it's my turn the better you, or "Cut" you. That's the mindset for all musicians whether they do it with their playing or their writing.
BTW, I am certainly not concerned about your imaginary audience, and NEVER get stage fright. You may conjure up any being you like, but remember they ONLY exist in your extremely vivid imagination.
Trumpet player?

There is absolutely no evidence to suggest that those omnipotent God can in fact restore life. We certainly DO know that he is unable to restore limbs as there has NEVER been an instance where he has done such.
Well, this is where we disagree.(Yes I finally registered so this is my username now) I believe there is evidence that God has restored life. Now whether you believe that evidence amounts to conclusive proof is another matter entirely. That evidence is the resurrection of Jesus Christ.

If the gospels of Matthew, Mark, Luke, & John are true eyewitness reports (as I believe they are) then yes God has restored limbs when Jesus cured lepers. Leprosy is a very nasty disease that causes people to lose limbs. And if there is going to be a world-wide resurrection of the dead at Christ's second coming, then we can expect that we will be given new bodies that are superior to what we possess now.

People make up all sorts of beliefs, but one should be extremely skeptical when things are made up with absolutely no supportive evidence.
Yes people should be skeptical. But not all things are made up. In truth, Christians are called to be open minded (even if fundamentalists don't believe it). Open minded does not mean being gullible. It means considering both natural and supernatural processes. We should consider natural processes up to the point where natural processes cannot sufficiently account for a majority of the data. At that point we are to begin looking to see if there is a supernatural explanation, but without forcing it to fit our beliefs.

<quoted text>
I think you misunderstand me. I am saying that people who call themselves Christians and still commit such acts are either pretenders, or are terribly confused about what they're supposed to be doing and not doing as Christians.
I do not consider the IRA (or any other terrorist organization such as the kkk) to speak for, or define the actions and beliefs of Christianity. Any person or group who develops an understanding that violence towards others as a means of achieving a goal is okay, is terribly deluded, and even more deluded if they believe Christ would endorse it. They may try to justify it with biblical chapter and verse as you point out, and they may actually believe it, but in truth, they are engaging in "proof-texting" which means they're twisting and interpreting it to fit their goals or concepts rather than understanding it within it's historical, theological, and literary context as the author presented it.
Ö.
Oh I understand you perfectly, you are doing exactly the same as so many other christians have done for hundreds of years, you are trying to disassociate yourself from aspects of christianity by denying that the faith of others is as valid as your own faith. And of course you are trying to discredit me with guesses and lies about my personality, how very christian of you, but I donít suppose you will ever see the hypocrisy of your claims.

What you consider is besides the point. It is not up to you to decide the faith of others just because you donít like the way they interpret your version of faith. This same attitude is responsible for millions of deaths throughout the ages, it is also responsible for the schisms in christianity that has produced over 40,000 different sects, each believing they alone are right.

And it is nothing to do with christ but the belief in what you perceive your christ to be. In fact he was a convicted terrorist himself.

But of course you ignoring and pretending that the parts of the babble that you donít like are not relevant is quite pathetic cherry picking on your part. You donít like parts of the babble then create yourself a new religion and omit the parts you do not like and stop clinging to the backs of others like a parasite. Do not go around denying those who adhere to the bible their right to faith.

I feel no need to lash out at anything, all I am doing is putting forward TRUTH, you donít like than then thatís fine, feel free to deny truth, after all you have been doing all your life so itís nothing new to you.

Again, it is NOT up to you to decide who is christian or not.

So you admit NDEs or your wacky dream / hallucination are not proof of anything supernatural and are merely chemical reactions in the brain?

Very good, glad I could help educate you.

You sure are infatuated with other men's penises and balls. Like really really infatuated. You were the one who confessed to closely examining the junk of atheists vs believers for size remember? Sorry, you don't get to change the story now.

You said Dave was gay remember? Because he uses the term thingies and you said whoever uses that is gay.

Dave has admitted before to enjoy chubby men in bed, perhaps you can keep him company while fatass Buck is at the buffet?
