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>I didn't say you were my judge, I'll ask one more time, your answer is important. I reject Jesus and according to your God he will send me to burn for all eternity, now......Do YOU think I deserve to be tortured forever? Don't keep hedging with your answer it's a simple yes or no question.
I have answered you twice but here is the third time.

I shall tell you a story of a man who decided he could jump out of an airplane at 5000 without a parachute. He refused to believe those who said he would die.

The man asked pointedly to the other jumpers who had chutes,“Do I deserve to be slammed into the earth at 200 miles per hour?” The others pleaded with him to put on a chute and pull the rip cord.“You have a choice!,” they said.

All the jumpers jump from the airplane including the man without a parachute. All the jumpers were saved accept the one man without a chute.

Doctor, my answer to you is this. YOU have a choice! You don’t have to spend eternity in hell. But always remember, if you find yourself in hell for eternity, who it was that put yourself there, YOU.

Jesus said,

2 Peter 3:9

“The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance.”

God has given you a way out and you have refused.

Ok you are a Major Leaguer. Ufologist are tough to beat. I agree with much of what you are saying, perhaps all actually besides one detail. I do believe men were created by a advance terrestrial beings not ETs.

The Atheist here have no belief that there is a traveling energy which partakes in their life's choices. I don't wish to argue this detail with them, because I think it is likely for themselves the statement is true, that they are without souls. Talking beliefs with them is like watching an ice hockey game being played by people that can't skate. I know you make take this paragraph as condescending, but it just what is.

I grew up with a very strong minded Atheist. He was my Father. But the long story short. Dad didn’t die in a Atheist. He came into the light about six months before he died.
Some will not be saved because they have crossed the line with God. Others there may still be hope if they want to be saved.
Thank you for all your efforts, God Bless.......
That is the story they hate hearing the most. There are no atheist in fox holes.

It was the Reagan admin that let the robber barons loot Wall St and public companies. Clinton helped. American business was taken over by parasites. Showbiz and hucksterism, smoke and mirrors since then. Manufacturing overseas and BS artists plundering the profits from the cheaper production.
You have a new global economic system based on investors and mandatory purchase of things like insurance providing cash flow for the new class of world rulers to disburse. In the long run it may be best for the large population we have, but it does need some tweaking and checks on it.
The world has become a corporation. There is not the old wealth such as gold and production of goods. Wealth is now determined by how much of the flow of Monopoly money you can divert to yourself.
You have your dream. You are a statistic, a cog in a greater machine. Matter being farmed by other matter. You have no escape.
I was talking about the sub prime mortgage scandal, anyway, regan, bush, all cast in the same mould

Just because I don't know how aliens purportedly living a few hundreds in our future are inevitably actors from decades in our past does not mean the Borg couldn't exist.

However, I do know it is impossible for an all powerful compassionate god to exist because we have evidence of avoidable suffering.

Actually according to historical perspective the foxholes of Europe contained plenty of atheists during WW1 and 2 so why do you lie for your god? Does lying make you feel better in yourself? Does it bring you closer to your god? Or is it simply that history defeats you every time and you are too stupid to admit it

Science is relentless at beating the religion out of smart people's minds.

And it does this with no violence at all, just plain old human curiosity and experimentation.

Religion has no hope in a world of super colliders and space travel. It should put its cr*p in a box and leave it be and apologise to the world for slowing it down.

You have NOT answered my question You resort to preaching and telling me I have a choice. I don't believe for a second that what you say is true. All I'm asking, and you seem to be having a terribly time answering, is since I totally reject Jesus and your God is going to send me to hell, now listen carefully.....DO YOU THINK I DESEVE TO BE TORTURED FOR ETERNITY? Yes or no!!!!

I'm here to expose you as a liar. I was in a foxhole in Viet Nam, as were others who were also Atheists. We were under attack, out number and very short on ammunition, with no help coming soon. I was convinced that I was going to die, no question. And NO neither myself nor any one else suddenly sank to our knees and begged God for forgiveness. I was fully prepared to die and face whatever came. I saw no sense in making up a mythical place just so as to be comfortable. What happen's when you blow out a candle?

A person becomes an Atheists because he is highly skeptical, because he is a critical thinker, he believes what science has observed, you don't throw all of that away, and suddenly accept bullshit, just because you know you are going to die. The stories people tell about Atheists suddenly accepting God on their deaths beds are most likely lies, or these people were never Atheists to begin with.

"There are no Atheists in foxholes" is a made up term used by Theists in a further attempt at validate their delusions.
