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.

What? Are you just a sock-puppet for Butt Cheeks, now?

Sad.

The Buckster always runs away from anything I write-- all he **ever** does? Is use filthy names and such at me personally.

Much as I demonstrated above.

Only The Buckster isn't laughing-- he's serious.

I'm all about the laughs-- you True Believers™ are so funny.

Evolution is an uncaring process.

Apparently?

So is your god... for your god's "handiwork" is indistinguishable from evolution...

Yep.

All human created suffering pales in comparison to the total suffering that god -- if god were really real-- is responsible for.

I bet over the years you could tell a story or two about musicians performing with illegal narcotics in their blood. I don’t think we can blame that on God can we?
Why not? Did not your god **create** the plants from which these drugs come from?

Or is your god so inept, that he could not foresee the uses people put things to?

Hmmmm.... your god is pretty stupid...

... seriously.

Okay. But I did not see Thinking write what **you** wrote-- and I always read his posts (they are usually dry wit and hilariously funny)

So?

You did make several insulting and blanket statements about atheists-- as your starting posts in this thread, even.

And when called on it? You try to get all self righteous...

<quoted text>

Maybe some of the Christians present can shed some light on this matter. Are any of you unsaved?
Greetings, Believers usually know if they abuse the grace of God too much, they will likely not have their name in the book of life. Deep self loathing seems to conflict with easy forgiveness on demand. Often the self loathing over a matter is severe and its pernicious effects do not fit the crime. I ve noticed something recently, in my travels church after church with filled parkng lots and many with additions being constructed. To my amazement I took the time to count churches around my primary home . Within a half mile there were 9 and 2 of them were building additons. I also think if and when bad things happen in the world more people flock to the church. This is evidence of a great and mighty spirit, God. This suggests that in spite of any weakening influence to a carnal society , the church is not in downfall by 2029.
Till we all fall down, it'll do you fine,

This sounds like what people that believe in a god came up with on their own without help from their religion. If you think that I am mistaken, can you refer me to the relevant bible passages that led those men to think those thoughts?
And do you think this affirms the value of religion or Christianity? Do you think that implies that we should try to protect the Christians' declining church from shrinking further? If not, is there any practical aspect to this argument? What do you think it implies if you are correct?
Hell if I know.

But that's the history.

Remember it when someone says this nation had a secular founding.

No, not really: to take offense would imply I had an investment in this thread-- I do not, it's just a hobby, just for my amusement.

Also, see my post just prior to this one.

But a sincere apology should always be rewarded with acknowledgement, if nothing else.

Are we not civilized? <grin>

<quoted text>Your like the little boy who stands in the middle of a field and shouts, "The Earth's not really turning, it's everything else in the sky." Older people come up to him and whisper, "thats not really true little boy, the Earth spins on it's axis." "NO it doesn't, claims the little boy, it's a lie, everything goes around the earth, the earth stands still." Finally the older more educated people just shrug their shoulders and move on, leaving the poor little boy in the middle of the field shouting his ridiculous claims, and the only ones listening are the animals and birds, the birds, if they could understand the rantings of this poor uneducated little boy, would only laugh as the adults had done, for even they know the Earth spins on its axis.
At some point the adults stop laughing and sorry and pity slowly spreads over their faces, realizing for the first time that there is simply no hope for this lost little boy who denies factual information, no hope whatsoever!!!
One of the best analogy/descriptions I've seen in quite awhile.

Brilliant!

Not true, I'll admit to being wrong. For example, I was dead wrong about you having any scientific knowledge whatsoever. I really thought anyone who had been on this planet as long as you have would have, just by osmosis, garnered some scientific knowledge. I was WRONG. See, I'm an Atheists and admit I was wrong.

Indeed.

Because "goddidit" is ever so much more useful as an "explanation".

Right?

I mean--we got all our wonderfully useful medicine from "goddidit"... right? No? That was from studying evolution? Oh.

Well, then we got all our amazingly useful physics from goddidit, right? No, again?

... hmmm...

...... what **did** humanity get from the idea of "godididit"?

...what's that?

..... war?

Oh!

That's... bad, isn't it?

What a lovely little delusion you have fabricated for yourself.

The **real** facts say otherwise:

Church attendance, all across the US, is down.

The younger the group being surveyed? The **less** churchy they are.

Within a generation or two at most? Churches will be mostly vacant-- for want of the young people to feed their ever-hungry coffers.

For that **is** the bottom line: feeding money into the monster-church.
