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 separates creationists is that they try to argue back with more lies! Definition of dumb!
Yeah, they need a reason and have to work hard to look so stupid.

They ain't naturally blessed like you.

It has always amused me how North Carolina as*holes were the very first to call others as*holes for whatever reason. More so than any place else in the South. A very sanctimonious crowd that lives there. Or quite the collection of as*holes. Or both.
May a green caterpillar kiss your as*hole, as*hole.
I made an extended trip to NC just a few weeks back and went to some places I've always wanted to explore.

I thought the people from there were great. Really nice. I had no complaints.

Maybe the problem you experienced had to do with you, and not them.

It's sorta like when someone gets a speeding ticket, and says they really weren't speeding. You tend to give the benefit of the doubt.

But once they get a bunch of speeding tickets, you tend to think its a problem they have, and not - "thoseassholecops".

See?

Funny how these dolts think.

Because we don't buy into their three big myths they want us to stop using computers, tv's, and modern medicine.

<quoted text>What percentage of the time is that wrong?
Nearly 50%.
So I don't really think you're an authority on "Pluto's place", twart.

50%. LMFAO

What a dolt!

"Is Pluto sometimes closer to us than Neptune?

Because Pluto has an orbit around the sun which is very elliptical, there are times when it crosses Neptune's orbit and is actually closer to the sun than Neptune. This happened recently during a twenty year period from 1979 to 1999. For now, Pluto is back to being farther away from the sun than Neptune. It will be more than 230 years before Pluto and Neptune trade places again. Pluto slips inside of Neptune's orbit once every 248 Earth years for a period of twenty years."

That's less then 10%.

What a nut job.

Oh and it will be 230 more years that I'm right with my comment.

Ya you sure showed me. Bawhahaha

Quite clearly you feel the need to defend your image of "God" and polish it shiny, forcibly re-interpreting the OT to produce a clean, moral and all-loving image.

[QUOTE]I do find it bizarre folks like you find slavery as depicted in Scripture so repulsive while you practically ignore it everywhere else. Justin addresses a despicable type in His first apology 27

<quoted text>
And you rant against slavery in the Bible and ignore this???
"

1. You're confused.

2. I'm pointing out to you that your deity cannot be the source of all human morality. How "God" is imagined changes throughout time and history and depends on cultural context.

3. When slavery was widespread, the Bible was used to support slavery. The OT depicts a deity who clearly endorses slavery and is, in no way, opposed to it.

4. Yet you claim that now the deity is against slavery, and you point out that the Bible was also used to argue against slavery (thank you, Quakers).

5. Clearly, you fail to understand that your personal beliefs are the product of late 20th century Christianity and Western history up to that point. You fail to realize how very different Christians in different centuries "knew" and "experienced" God and that they were very, very different from you.

6. "God" and Christianity are not constants. They are products of human culture. Your deity is a socially constructed being. It does not exist apart from you. You have been trained to interpret experience such that for you "God exists - not unlike believers in all other religions experiencing their deities.
" I am disgusted in how willfully ignorant you, and people like you are. Your deities are your personal, imagined beings"

Your 3 BIG Myths:

1) the Big Bang when nothing exploded
and created everything.

2) rain falling on rocks and settling in a mud puddle and spontaneous self generating life sprang forth.

3) plants evolving into plant eating animals.

And when I snap my fingers you will wake up and believe these 3 myths as if they were fact.

"SNAP"

An "atheist" can't make a claim, period, by their own definition of themselves. Non-belief is passive. Making a claim, or choosing among theories something they consider a truth, isn't.
Classic atheism is a part of the growth process, a questioning that leads to a better understanding. Topix atheists are not of that caliber. They are trained apes looking at other trained apes, and trying to exploit them with high sounding words their very basis of "non-belief" render bullshit. They see only the shiny stuff and think "I want". By the very nature of their imagined existence they can not see beyond themselves. They are pure physical constructs with nothing but self interest. They don't believe in a higher intelligence or morality. They can't.
Theists look at another human being, no matter the color or configuration, or even animals, and see a soul trapped inside a body like themselves making do the best they can with what they have. They still have to function on the physical, but they have an awareness of the higher. It is that sort of belief that unites mankind and gives him a purpose to strive for, like reaching out to this higher force. Topix atheists have nothing to strive for but their own desires. Which made them monkeys on a leash held by smarter monkeys.
The early days of the internet there were debates between Atheist and Gnostic Atheist. Since then they all sound the same. I think many of them have jobs at colleges. The tree primates in our evolution tree is strange. I do believe in evolution, but many of us, think this detail is wrong. It is strange none of the Online Atheist do. Overall there are many strange things about them

My best friend and one of the finer people to have lived was from NC. "From". He never looked back after leaving it.

Oh, speeding tickets and as*hole NC cops.

In 1969 I and a mile or so of other traffic was stuck behind some NC as*hole doing about 10 miles below the limit on Route 13 in Gates County for 20 minutes. FINALLY an opening in oncoming traffic became available and I did a very fast passing of that individual, to get around him and allow the others to have a chance to pass. A NC State Trooper got me one mile over the limit. Now, I was more than that until I saw him in my rear view, but I'm quick. However, he did inform me the state of NC would let me pay a fine and I could go about my way. Which I did.$5 fine,$15 court costs. There were a few other out of state drivers being afforded the same courtesy I was at that time. Was probably his cousin Jethro driving that camper.

You assume again. I find it hard to believe both of you have such poor comprehension skills.
When I post. "You can not prove The universe was started with or without a creator" I give you reason a.------ reason b.------ and reason c. The answer is in the statement. "(You can't prove The Universe was started) with or without a creator"
The answer was as I showed you. You can't prove period, how The Universe was started. Even if you don't agree with that answer. Which I off course don't see how you can't, even Stephen Hawking, whom clearly would love to drive your point home states that. You are a waste of people's time for this reason.
That is why I believe you multi log on ID. No great plot, nothing against me or people you talk to. It is because you have built walls around yourself, and now you have too much time on hands. The great conspiracy is you need to go out.
The universe was "started"? Really?

You "know" this... how?

What if the present state is just a different phase or form, from a previous phase?

And that the universe always was, and never HAD a start at all?

All your blathering and wall-of-senseless-words?

And you didn't mention THAT possibility.

Fail.
