Yes, Atheism requires as much faith as religion. I would like to ask an Atheist a question.

What evidence did you found that made you become an Atheist? I'm just curious.

When I first viewed the Grand Canyon in 1963 it left a incredible impression on me. I knew at an early age this canyon took millions of years to be created. The Bible by the way doesnít list the age of the Earth. I went back in 1996 with the family and it was just as beautiful.

It is the Atheist that try with little success to hold believers to this ridiculous 1960ís version of the Earths age (6000 years). We are no longer in the 1950ís and 60ís Doctor.

I believe in evolution on a microbiological level. Thereís no denying it. But the proof that man evolved is mostly imaginary science in my opinion. And I donít care what others think about my view.

Out of all the science disciplines. Evolution is the only one with an enforcement arm. If you donít accept it as fact even though it is taught as a theory you will fail your class. In many cases lose your job if you are working in a science related field.

You can disagree with any other science and be totally accepted. But if you question Evolution you are going to be introduced to the East German Police. Dragged out into the hall and beat nearly to death.

Well Evolutionist are going to have to beat my a** because I donít accept something by force nor by imaginary science. The Atheist have the audacity to point the finger at believers for believing by Faith.

When it comes down to it Atheist have more faith than believers. Because they take the word of some marijuana induced dope head that says man evolved. If you ever look past all the hype and look at real proof itís pretty damn scarce on man evolving.

Well you shouldnít be because it probably is bringing in revenue for the State and supplying jobs for some people.

Good luck on getting them to answer that one with any level of intelligence.

There seems to be a high proportion of topix creation believers from Kentucky. I'm glad to hear everyone isn't a total biblebot from there. Because I did wonder.

For me it started with my mom's death, that made me start questioning my faith (cliche I know). I was in the baptist denomination. I did some research on the similar stories about Jesus from different religions that are older than christianity that have almost the exact same stories and I decided then that I could not be a Christian because I would have to have faith that the story of Jesus is the correct one in order to follow the faith whole heartedly...as far as my belief in a god...I do not personally believe in a god, but if evidence for a creator were ever found I would not deny it.

If you studied religion academically , bear in mind this does not mean religious study. It means to study religion from a anthropological pov, not judging them on any truth's to belief, but as an unbiased historical documentation of human religious and superstitious beliefs since the dawn of history. You will find that atheism is not a belief that requires faith. It is the knowledge of what religion really is, and what it has done to societies over history.

I mean think about it, the ancients who lived before the advent of Abrahamic beliefs built societies and flourished. Some of them were bad, some of them were good. Take the Greeks for instance, they had no concept of the god you believe in. Does that doom them all to an eternal hell for being evil?

You will discover religions, all of them were based on concepts of mythology nothing more. The Abrahamic beliefs are no exception, they are just the concepts "you" were trained to believe, nothing more. It doesn't make them any truer than the beliefs the ancient Greeks held. They are true to you only because "you" believe them.

The question is simple so try to answer it honestly.
Did god create us, or did we create god.

That's not too bad on a scale from 1-10... I'd say I'm about an 8. Maybe tomorrow will be higher :-)

Have you ever did any of your own research on the subject of evolution of man?

Looking at the actual evidence and not the artist conceptions, speculation, assumptions, and guesswork?

Tip: Try not denying evolution or condemning atheists to hell and your questions will get a faster response.

The evidence is that you're all liars that cannot provide proof of the god you made up.

You know this and that's why you write books and build buildings to keep the lie going.

You're at the same time too stupid to understand how science works and how is already had disproved your own little world you made up and believed while growing up.

Now as an adult to protect that fragile psychological cage, you tell lies about god to keep your ego from caving into the realisation that god isn't real and that there is no absolute form of justice in the world.

Or you could just tell the truth and admit you're atheist and don't believe in made up rubbish.
