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 isn't hatered of god (you can't hate something that does not exist)
Overall I would agree with your statement, however my claim stands those that post online are most often God haters. Those that post gawd prove this point right away. With in my complete post you responded to, I claimed online Atheist do not represent all atheist. Even though when address on this they do claim they do, and I am making up forms of atheism. An atheist that does give it little to no thought, would never try to change your mind unless you directly requested it. That is an atheist. I would respect that person's debate that he or she has no faith. If you wish to structure society with your beliefs, you belong to a religion.

Your mental issues disallow you to understand that no cosmologist or any other scientist can tell you how the universe came to be, as in ultimate causation.

Only the methodology of how it got assembled.

It is your imagination that they say we popped into existence from nothing, and your belief in such magic.

For some Atheist 5 out of the above 5 are true. Note in 1. The word especially not as you claim the word only would belong there.

Uh huh. That's why I told him its in his imagination.

Your reference to matter and energy is a little skewed. It can not be created or destroyed in this universe that started with the BB. According to the science of our time. But then the creation of it may be in question due to the further expansion of this universe.

The observations and determinations by modern physicists is we are a seed that went through a sort of imbibition and then started expanding, "growing" if you wish, and getting ever more complex as it goes on.

Something planted the seed or laid the egg.

Nope, but there are unanswered questions.

We once thought lightening was supernatural. But nope it happens when...
negative charged electrons in a cloud are attracted to positive charged protons in the ground, and enough of them accumulate in a spot to overcome the insulating resistance in the air between them.
Then they jump toward each other, sending a surge of electrons into the ground. We see the flash of energy and while this charge heats the air along their paths. Causing it to expand rapidly making the sound of thunder.

You need dust and particles in the air for the bolt to hit ground. Sets up a path of lesser resistance. Why it forks so much.

That is the most common lightning. Blue sky lightning does the opposite and is 10 times hotter. You can get hit 20 miles away from the storm. That can appeal to your supernatural instincts.

That was a conversion. A release of energy within mass. Unwinding atoms.

No-- but your constant belittling of me, your constant miss-use of my name, your constant telling me I'm sub-human?

That **is** hate-- and it's what you do.

Bob and many online Atheist don't get. If you hate God, you believe in God. It is so unfair on many levels they represent atheism to so many people.
I do not hate god, you idiot.

I do detest god-lovers, though.

Why?

The fictional god they imagine is always-- without fail-- a reflection of their worst attributes.

A monster, in short.

Your imaginary god is no different.
