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.

What man created time?
Well I could attempt to pull that one out of my ass, but I won't...I could google it, but I really don't feel like reading through all that garbage cause it will go back and forth on there too, since there is no specific person that "invented" it.

Let's just say that even if "god" created day and night...man would have had to have invented a tool to measure time so that we could use time as we needed to. That should make sense to you. I haven't ever read in the bible where "god" created the clock.

LOL!

You are more maniacal in your non-belief than the overwhelming majority of them in their belief. Irrational even.

Socrates had some seriously highly placed enemies in Athens. That is why he died. You best believe there would have been some official propaganda and gloating over his death. Much publicizing of what happens to those that oppose.
Show me some.
Why would one man like him be so worshiped for his ideas unless he was elevated above other men by scholars?
There are a lot more writings about Jesus, and he has had much more impact on human history.
I am not educated on the subject of Socrates enough to discuss in depth about him...however I don't agree that there were more writings about Jesus....at least not in secular history. There have been similar arguments that have floated around about Jesus and Paul. I just don't look into depth about those things because I don't feel like it is neither here nor there as far as my beliefs go.

O.k. so I've heard christians say before, that Noah would have been like 12 feet tall back in the day, and if that is the case then why are we not 12 feet tall now?????? That is called evolution. Like it or not. That is evolution. I don't believe that Noah existed, but if he did, then how else would you explain this??????

I didn't either until I got on here dealing with rabid anti-Christians and started looking things up.

The truth is you can't even get the truth about something that happens now, much less years ago.

Everyone wants to sell you something.

You pick your truths where you find them. You have to live with them. The regimented souls like fundies and Topix atheists ain't got brains to do that for themselves.

"The truth is you can't even get the truth about something that happens now, much less years ago."

At the risk of you getting angry with me, I can say that I agree with you to some point...however I think that science, and archeology can give us many answers from the past, and in the now it's much easier to find truth as the time is in the present. I totally agree that a person has to choose their own truth...I am just not one of the people that have chosen the biblical creation (god) as mine. I find it impossible to believe that the bible is authentic in its current state, or at all. Again that is just my opinion. I still find it hard to believe that anyone would, and I still think that religions should stay a personal practice and not one that is publicly forced onto non-followers. I feel like even the Topix atheists have chosen to agree with science over faith. I personally see nothing wrong with that simply because I trust science because science has given me answers that can be explained rationally. Any huge questions like, where the universe came from, and where we will go when we die will never be answered by proof. I feel like those are impossible questions to answer unless you were there, or until you get there.

I agree about the Bible and other religious works, including Socrates. Like I said, everyone is trying to sell you something. That goes for this nebulous "science" you trust. It is a house of cards built on some assumptions and driven mostly by money. It is an industry. It has become a religion.

In of all of them are bits of truth written between the lines.

Atheists and fundamentalists both seek the answers from man. That is inherently impossible and likely to empty your pockets.

Agreed. I don't worship science though. I am curious what your straight opinion of science is though. Do you feel like the things that science has helped us understand is all for nothing? I'm not just talking about space, and the universe...I'm talking about medicine, and technology as well.

It is all good as it improves quality of life when applied properly. However, like technology and science throughout history, they can do these things without fully knowing how they did it. False models that kind of work. It just appears they know what they are doing.

But you have people, the quest for power, status, and money involved. That is not so bad if they are really doing something, but you have the hucksters selling theories that kind of drowns out the real thing.

Nuts and bolts versus bullshit. Topix atheists subscribe to the bullshit.

What non biblical writings about Jesus would that be Dave? Ones written decades if not centuries later?

So churches in town, many in foreclosure is proof that Jesus existed?

Wow you are an ignorant [email protected]@cker.

Very well said. There is not a single secular eye witness account of Jesus. Not one.
