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.

Nope. That is fantasy.

I recommend Haldol.

Now would you like to advance your theory on man from a pile of freakin dirt?
Doctor, you need to bone up on DNA. There’s four types of DNA.

True, very true Doctor. Even Baboons can have social groups. But the difference is Baboons don’t go to church. Same as Atheist.

Work at a supermarket and one of my hobbies is vising and buying things at flea Markets all over stockholm county
I didn’t know flea markets were in Europe. They’re big business here in the US too. A lot of folks make their living buying items and selling them at flea markets or swap meets as they are sometimes called.

We even have reality TV shows surrounding these types of sales like “Storage Wars, and American Pickers.” A lot of these items purchased at storage auctions and by Pickers end up being sold in flea markets.

Garage sales is another big business in the US. Every once in a while someone will find something very valuable and purchase if for almost nothing.

Yes I know how many types of DNA there are. Your idea that God ripped a rib out because of the DNA present is laughable. You have further demonstrated how stupid your God is. This is FACT: Hair, blood and skin cells are highly porous. It is easy to extract DNA from these types of cells. Bones are calcified. It is VERY DIFFICULT to extract DNA from bone cells. Besides being unbelievably cruel and immoral, the God you worship is also incredibly stupid. The easy way for him to create a women was to simply extract a hair from the man. Instead he precedes to rip his rib out, thereby confirming his addiction to cruelty and gratuitous suffering. Thanks again for helping to prove how monstrous your God truly is.

True but you need a soul to move on. I take your word for it that you don't have one.
"You need a soul to move on, is a POSITIVE CLAIM and needs to be supported with evidence (see below) I can wait!!!!!

"When debating any issue, there is an implicit burden of proof on the person asserting a claim. If this responsibility or burden of proof is shifted to a critic, the fallacy of appealing to ignorance is committed"

Doctor, please, go back and think about what you were taught in pre-school. What is found inside of bones? The bones produce what?

Doctor, your spring is too tight. The Vietnam war is over. You need to relax. The VC aren’t going to cross the perimeter tonight. Take your 45 and drop the clip then eject the shell in the chamber. Put that damn gun away.

It’s going to be cool, just take a deep breath and chill, it’s going to be alright. We’re not on the Ho Chi Minh Trail. Charley is not going to get us tonight. You’re in Boston. That’s long way from Nam.

It’s going to be ok, that’s it just relax.

Bone marrow that contains DNA, so God instead of the easy way with a hair or a speck of skin, now needs to not only tear the rib out of the man but then break it open and extract marrow. More evidence as to how stupid your God is. Which do you suppose is more painful, tearing out a rib or extracting a strand of hair? Which is obviously the most efficient? Which is easier? Your Gods a dope. Now on to your hypothesis on how the science works in order to get a fully formed male from a pile of dirt, yes yes, it needs to be blown on. What are your thoughts as to what affect blowing on a pile of dirt might have in creating a human? I can't wait for this answer!!!! If its anything like your, Whales don't have gills and have to surface to breath because God wanted us to thrill to the beauty of them broaching!!!!! Too F--cking funny. You certainly outdid yourself on that one.

I prefer to not think about that time. The horrors I witnessed and the good friends I lost are most painful. I really would appreciate it if you would not go there, thanks.

No one is saying your stupid Doctor. We all have different levels of experience and expertise. Bones my good Doctor do what beside offer skeletal support? There something inside bones not found anywhere else in the body.

And that something does what for the human body?

When you answer that you have the reason why God used a rib bone. I personally believe it was a fragment of a bone. 50 years ago when people thought about Adam having a rib removed it was funny.

But today, if you are a medical student or MD you have a clearer understanding what a rib bone can do. Did you know Doctor a rib bone can regenerate? That’s right it can grow back. Also guess what else is in a rib bone? Stem Cells.

Sorry about the Nam thing. But you are wound up too tight. Relax Doctor. I'm not your enemy. I'm an American like you. You know freedom, freedom of speech, freedom of religion, freedom of choice. I don't hate you because you are an Atheist. In fact I don't hate you at all.

Church has been more than religion but a place where the kids made life long friendships. Most people are social creatures by nature. Most of us enjoy some company and friends. We socialize and have fun.
A place where men can gather up and tell their latest hunting stories. The women get together and chat about losing weight and their latest recipes. It’s a community gathering. Like a big family reunion every week.
It’s fellowship and community involvement. Your probably not interested in American History. But in the early days of America the church was also the school. Then the place for the local government to meet.
So life is also good with religion.
Yes, we are social animals. That does not make religion good though. People used to get together for all kinds of reasons, a house raising, barn dances, saloons, quilting bees, political meetings or just going into town on a Saturday for supplies.

BTW, buildings were in short supply at one time. That doesn't make any difference either.

Lol, reminds me of C. Hitchens. He was about 8 or 10 and his teacher took the class for a walk. She remarked that she was so thankful that God had made the sky a beautiful blue and the grass green to please his children.

She went on to speculate how horrible it would have been if God had decided to make nature in repulsive clashing colors.

That was the first time Hitch realized that she had it backwards, it wasn't something he could fully articulate yet, but it started him thinking;0)
