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.

<quoted text>Very childish song. Of course the music is really juvenile, all diatonic, not much substance.
Elvis wouldn’t have sang that song. But school children did for their Mom’s and Dad’s. I remember hearing it when I was a kid and that’s why I looked it up.

It kind of fits here since you Atheist are trying to be the school yard bullies.

I remember when my son was going to college and he was taking a music history class. The professor brought in a this guy who played and sang some of the old folk songs in early American History.

After this guy sang his first song two thirds of the class got up and walked out. The professor was teed off to say the least. Music from a different time period is different than music of today but it’s still music.

Myself, I still love the deep African American Blues when it’s from the soul. I just love it along with some classy Jazz.

How about a scripture for all my Dear Atheist friends?

“Order my steps in thy word: and let not any iniquity have dominion over me.”

—Psalm 119:133 (KJV)

This Land is Your Land
words and music by Woody Guthrie

Chorus:
This land is your land, this land is my land
From California, to the New York Island
From the redwood forest, to the gulf stream waters
This land was made for you and me
As I was walking a ribbon of highway
I saw above me an endless skyway
I saw below me a golden valley
This land was made for you and me
Chorus
I've roamed and rambled and I've followed my footsteps
To the sparkling sands of her diamond deserts
And all around me a voice was sounding
This land was made for you and me
Chorus
The sun comes shining as I was strolling
The wheat fields waving and the dust clouds rolling
The fog was lifting a voice come chanting
This land was made for you and me
Chorus
As I was walkin'- I saw a sign there
And that sign said - no tress passin'
But on the other side .... it didn't say nothin!
Now that side was made for you and me!
Chorus
In the squares of the city - In the shadow of the steeple
Near the relief office - I see my people
And some are grumblin' and some are wonderin'
If this land's still made for you and me.

Before the Bible "Cain" killed his brother "Able."
"Able" was a good guy, he didn't even cheat in poker.
So I would say you are correct in that Adam and Eve didn't teach Cain to respect his brother. It was the first case of road rage but without the cars.
For one thing?

Eve was a clone of Adam, right? A rib-"woman"?

That would mean ... Eve was really.... Steve... a man.

(St)Eve would have had XY chromosomes, identical to Adam's.

Since that is patently impossible?

The entire edifice falls apart at the seams.

And I'll leave you one from your kind, loving, caring, and compassionate God. Maybe this is why he refuses to answer the prayers of amputee's, after seeing this, he obviously hates any kind of deformities.

21:16 And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,
21:17 Speak unto Aaron, saying, Whosoever he be of thy seed in their generations that hath any blemish, let him not approach to offer the bread of his God.
21:18 For whatsoever man he be that hath a blemish, he shall not approach: a blind man, or a lame, or he that hath a flat nose, or any thing superfluous,
21:19 Or a man that is brokenfooted, or brokenhanded,
21:20 Or crookbackt, or a dwarf, or that hath a blemish in his eye, or be scurvy, or scabbed, or hath his stones broken;

I actually think the Rule Of Law, i.e. the Constitution, is a brilliant idea.

Years ago, I was close friends with a police dispatcher. She was quite interesting, and had lots of cop-stories to tell.

These days? I know a couple of the Tulsa police-- good people.

There were a lot of nice prisoners too. They are really interesting people when they're not drunk or stoned. I remember this one dear old lady with white hair coming in every week during visitation. Her son had robbed a bank.
She was just a sweetheart. He had done something really bad but Mom still loved him. I hope he got out after serving his time and spent some quality time with his Mom.
Why did he rob the bank? Bill collectors drove him crazy and he thought that was the only way out.
Desperate times creates desperate people.

The current ReThuglicans are hell-bent on re-creating desperate times for people making less than 50k.

Unless Adam had 46 XY chromosomes and 46 XX chromosomes,
which if um , if it did. It would made Adam either a chimera or a hermaphrodite. But we know this is a ridiculous contention.
Because there is no documented species that evolved this way , because the condition is an isolated and a rare circumstance.

So yeah.
We atheists **will** tell you to go f--- yourself.
Lets take your last statement first. This demonstrates you are a moral weakling. Non believers are in denial regarding their responsibility to their fellow human beings and their responsibility to God.

Atheism in the disease called denial. Atheism is like alcoholism. As long as the alcoholic continues to deny their alcoholism they can continue to drink in excess. As long as the atheist is in denial about God they can continues to behave in ways which are reprehensible and hypocritical expecting moral behavior from others and exempting themselves. How big does one have to be to be fixated on the sins of others and at the same time blind to their own?

There is not now, nor has there ever been, any proof that any of the gods ever worshipped actually existed.

If you or anyone could provide such proof, that would be great.

When you finally have proof of god, your ignorant creationist mental illness will matter more.

Atheism is not a religion, it is not a disease. It is the conclusion after mentally ill people have failed for centuries to prove the gods they have claimed are real.

Creationist trolls like lightbeamrider are cursed because they lack the mental ability to understand or accept a world without their imaginary friend.

So they bully and abuse atheists in the atheist forum every day and try to disrupt their conversations.

This is how bitter the creationist cult losers are. They can't keep their cult to themselves, and actively come in here and stir sh*t up.

WHy do you cowardly liars do this?

Are you that afraid of science and education? Are you that petty?

Science has proven your cult and your gods are nonsense, yet you persist with lies upon lies.

You are the reason nobody believes in your cults anymore - you are animals, who have decided to be dishonest and "sinful" according to your fantasies.

I see you're back to being stupid again. It is IMPOSSIBLE to be in denial over that which does not exist. The best you can do here is say someone is in denial over a belief. The same way someone is in denial about werewolves.

You pose a stupid analogy, alcoholism is part of reality, God is NOT part of reality.

No one has a responsibility to a fictitious being, don't be absurd.

A better analogy would be comparing those who believe in things without evidence to a serious mental disorder called DELUSIONAL DISORDER. This is a condition were a person cannot tell the difference between what is real and what is only imagined. Those poor people in mental institutions who claim demons follow them a round and speak to them, are not different from those who believe an invisible being speaks to them and tells them what they should or shouldn't do.

"When ONE person suffers from a delusion, it is called insanity, when MANY people suffer from a delusion it is called RELIGION." Like that!!!!

Yeah anyone is stupid who is not an atheist according to the some of the more militant and fundie atheists.

Atheist assumption does not equal fact.

We are not talking about werewolves. One does not have to believe in werewolves in order to believe in God.
You pose a stupid analogy,
There is that word stupid again. How hard is it for an atheist to be cruel? It would seem cruelty comes natural.
alcoholism is part of reality,
Atheism is not?
God is NOT part of reality.
Atheist fixed assumption which allows atheists to be moral weaklings.

So not only are Theists stupid they are delusional. Sounds like Stalinist tactics.

Werewolves, pixies, gods - whatever. The difference is that the former superstitions are largely discredited. The latter is gradually being undermined by education and science and is increasingly being seen for what it is.

Religion = superstition
Get over it
