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.

Another Atheist canned answer, recycled material.
It's in your book dumbass - you should read it sometime!

You're living proof that Snow White and Dopey had unprotected sex. ;)

Reality check time for dumbass Christians:

IS THE BIBLE INSPIRED?

If it is, it should be a book that no man -- no number of men -- could produce.

It should contain the perfection of philosophy.

It should perfectly accord with every fact in nature.

There should be no mistakes in astronomy, geology, or as to any subject or science.

Its morality should be the highest, the purest.

Its laws and regulations for the control of conduct should be just, wise, perfect, and perfectly adapted to the accomplishment of the ends desired.

It should contain nothing calculated to make man cruel, revengeful, vindictive or infamous.

It should be filled with intelligence, justice, purity, honesty, mercy and the spirit of liberty.

It should be opposed to strife and war, to slavery and lust, to ignorance, credulity and superstition.
It should develop the brain and civilize the heart.

It should satisfy the heart and brain of the best and wisest.

It should be true.

QUESTION...???

Does the Old or NewTestament satisfy this standard?

Is there anything in the Bible in history, in theory, in law, in government, in morality, in science, above and beyond the ideas, the beliefs, the customs and prejudices of its authors and the people among whom they lived?

Is there one ray of light from any supernatural source?

NO!

Let's address these one at a time shall we Sir Robert?

The Vatican has spoken out on the subject of the Seven Magnificent Deadly Sins, and has come up with a modernised version of 'things to go to Hell for'.

The original seven sins - Pride, Envy, Gluttony, Lust, Anger, Greed and Sloth - have become outdated, says the Vatican, as everyone in the world indulges in those sins every day of their lives.

A new up-to-date list of sins is thought to have been the idea of the Pope himself.

To reflect the state of modern life, the new Seven Magnificent Deadly Sins, as decreed by the Pope, include sins against minorities, as well as against the environment, which is always complaining about being shat upon.

The revised list is:

Pollution.

Calling gay people names like Arse Bandit, Rear Admiral or Cackpipe Cosmonaut.

Kiddyfiddling (unless the kiddyfiddler is a trusted religious person)

Calling Muslims names like ...well...you know, and laughing at their beards.

Drug-taking if you're an athlete (forgiveable after 2 years)

Can't think of one for number 6.

Being a sloth.

Priests have applauded the revision, and say that anyone discovered committing more than four of the sins within a 7-day period, could leave themselves open to Eternal Damnation.

Father Feargal O'Birmingham, a professor of moral theology at the University of Alum Rock, said:

"The world has changed since the original seven deadly sins were written down in 1977. Sins have changed, and we must change with them. It may have been fine to call a faggot a 'faggot' 30 years ago, but that kind of thing is no longer permissible."

Don't they all Bob?

One would imagine with all the Internet information available: that... they would at least make a effort to determine what their religion is - what it originated from - why competing religious ideologies exist.

Sadly, they are so brainwashed, that "thinking" is verboten! "God will get me for that"

If religionists applied reason and science to their faith, their religion would simply die. That's why faith must oppose science for its very survival.
No philosophy, moral outlook, or religion can be inconsistent with the findings of science and hope to endure among educated people.

"Science isn't something that you need to believe in to accept, like astrology or Jesus. Science is definitely real."
Most sciences true but there are two exceptions. Mans Evolution and Cosmology.
And by the most amazing of coincidences, they are happen to be the two that contradict your bible's creation story. What are the odds that the same types of people using the same methods as the ones that developed the science that you do accept would get it wrong in the most important of areas?

Incidentally, if you want to defend Creationism from scientific progress, you'll want to begin attacking abiogenesis and plate tectonics as well, and probably archeology, too.

How are artist's conceptions a refutation of the theory of biological evolution?
Eagle 12 wrote:
That doesn’t sound like real science to me but imagination of the artist. You can’t read or go through a evolutionary course without being bombarded with artist conceptions. Why? The evidence is not there but the imagination is.
Yes, drawings not made of things that you are looking at are the imagination. Were you aware that there is other evidence apart from drawings? Are you disregarding that and attacking the theory based on drawings?
Eagle 12 wrote:
If the evidence of mans evolution is so solid why does evolution have a enforcement arm? It’s the only science that come with thugs to beat up and cast out non believers. The baseball bats and beatings are definitely real. All the scientist are forced to proclaim it is real or they will be fired. That doesn’t sound like solid scientific evidence to me.
Really? An enforcement arm? Do you have drawings to support those allegations?

Michael Behe still has his job. How did the enforcement arm let that happen?

It aint necessarily so wrote:
It's true with you. You wrote, "Ribs are the only part of a human that will regenerate. If a portion of a rib is cut away. It grows back new."
That's wrong. Did you know that the liver regenerates itself if there is healthy liver tissue to do so? Apparently not.
Furthermore, there is almost no data to support that ribs regenerate in humans, at least not in the sense that you implied. What little there is suggests that under special circumstances, periosteal osteoblasts can sometimes generate new bone and marrow. Resected ribs are generally removed with their periostea, so this has no clinical significance after removal of ribs as occurs with some times of thoracic surgery.
It looks like you're getting your science from Christian apologetics sources, like Answers In Genesis. http://www.answersingenesis.org/articles/aid/...
Let me give you a hint: if you can only find it in a Christian apologetics source, they made it up. There is nothing true about the world known only to Christians. If it is true, it can be found in a secular source.

That is incorrect. I wrote that answer myself. It was completely original. I doubt that you'll find my answer anywhere else on the Internet.

And what difference would it make if I copied a canned answer if it were a correct answer? Canned answers are perfect for frequently offered false claims.Don't you think that you should rebut the claim's content rather than its novelty?
