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.

I have no faith, no beliefs.
I would be happy to entertain **facts**-- something you seem to be seriously deficient in.
You have no proving facts. Theories. It is time for me to do The Church Lady's Superior Dance.

Listen to the video.

Some more sounds.



Note the correlation to EM in the first link. Note also there isn't much air around auroras and radiation belts.

I will not bring up old Dave's past posts about EM and its universal aspects.

Its because you are dishonest immoral people that you cannot prove your god when asked.

You have to fill in the gaps with lies that you shemelessly tell based on 0 evidence.

This is your lying way of life you mistakenly call a religion, when it s a poor cult, afraid, lonely and sheltered from the real world

Did you know that being scared into believing in a deity, or being shown "proof" such as you demand will leave you the same as if you hadn't?

That is failed product.

QA time is approaching. It will be painful. You are already doomed. Live it up while you still can, and don't look back. Or forward.

my my what a bunch of ignoramus'

let me explain to your tiny little closed minded Christians that a theory is not a guess, nor is it conjecture or born of faith, it is simply the culmination of evidence (sorry brainwashed christian sheep i know you are not familiar with evidence) that has been researched, proved and peer reviewed to within an inch of it' life. Once this has been accepted only then can it be called a theory.

unlike our theory of god which is a guess and come with zero, nil, nada, nowt, nothing even remotely close to something that could be tested.

and a quick note for the hard of thinking, no one ever said humans descended from the monkey.

time to read something other than the vile, evil and disgusting lessons your holy book bang on about

and to sum up

Atheism is simply,,LACK of belief in god(s).
There is no belief required for atheism.
And since faith is “belief in something for which there is no proof” such as gods,how can an atheist, who has no positive belief need faith?
Answer is we do not... Atheism requires no faith.
Many theists will say; atheists must have faith that god does not exist”. That statement is false for a few reasons.
Most atheists are agnostic atheists,
and they do not completely rule out the existence of some kind of UNdefined god(s),
but rather, they find god(s) to be improbable, see no evidence that would indicate god-belief is rational, or both.
Faith does not play a role here, facts are whats important.
And just because we dont know how the universe or life originated does NOT prove gods existence,claiming that god created all,is an argument from Ignorance Fallacy.,,a belief without evidence!
Until theists prove god exist,its only rational to remain atheist
So Faith is not necesary to be atheist

Yes, and I would rather be a certified nut than be an Atheist. It's because my beliefs are so much better than dying and becoming worm meat. If you could prove your stuff as fact, perhaps you shouldn't even share it then. As if that day would ever come. Actually it is true, for you.

Nice try, not really. Let's start this conversation when you could PROVE how The Universe was started, most likely when that happens another detail will kill your hopes. If you gave it no thought and did not discuss it. Maybe, but just maybe. You wouldn't be able to prove that any way.

"So Faith is not necesary to be atheist "

Absolutely true. The only requirement is some mental or emotional issue not mitigated by medication.

Robert, I'm sorry, but the scientific research that was done for creation has been proven as fact.... that doesn't mean that there is not more out there to be questioned and to find answers for, but the big bang has been stated as factual.

I just read about this day before yesterday... You should have a look at it. It is very interesting and pretty cool if you are interested in science at all :)

At that moment is was accepted fact, that it was the start. Now it being the start is a theory.

Sorry but string is still theory. It is interesting it is a top contender. It does not answer if Theist or atheist are correct. Perhaps when proven it would.

In science a theory is something that has been tested and proven.

A scientific theory is a well-substantiated explanation of some aspect of the natural world, based on knowledge that has been repeatedly confirmed through observation and experimentation. Scientists create scientific theories from hypotheses that have been corroborated through the scientific method, then gather evidence to test their accuracy. Scientific theories are the most reliable, rigorous, and comprehensive form of scientific knowledge. This is significantly different from the word "theory" in common usage, which implies that something is unsubstantiated or speculative.
