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.

You seem to be a bit psychotic, but I don't discriminate. I'll try this with you one time.
God is not omnipotent, He is not all-powerful.
Then?

Your god isn't a god at all!

He's just some super-powerful **bully** who constantly demands you stroke his bloated ego.

Wow.

You are even more of a moron that I thought previously.

Woah there, lil lady.
ALL churches are tax exempt.
Understand?
So?

None should be-- they cannot prove their silly and sometimes ugly claims.

So, in order to keep from being sued for fraud?

They have to claim it's just for entertainment reasons-- like movie theaters.

And we know that all entertainment **should** be taxed.

Until and if they can **prove** their gods are real?

That is only Just.

And your question depends on several things-- are dogs capable of love as we humans experience the emotion? Or is it something similar?
Without actually scanning the brain of the dog with a Science Fictional machine, to see what the dog is experiencing?
We cannot say one way or another.
But.
There are certainly many similarities to the behaviors of dogs, and the behaviors of humans who say they are in love.
Many, many similarities-- too many to just dismiss the dog's behavior as simply that of an animal.
It could be helpful to remember that both dogs and humans are **mammals**, and both ultimately share an ancestor back in the past.
As such, it's hardly surprising that mammals share similar instinctive drives (such as "love") that would manifest in a strongly similar way.
WTF?

That's the most intelligent post you have ever made.

You are not a genuine christian.

A **real** follower of the words of Jesus?

Would **welcome** Obama care as answering the **command** to **help** the sick.

You are just another hypocrite, as we all suspected.

Your Topix trophy is in the mail.

Your continued failure to counter my points is duly noted.

So you stoop to name-calling, and attempts at character assination.

Because, that's how your Jesus did it, right?

Jesus would call his detractors ugly names, right?

Moron.
Or as Reba says; "Mow-ron".
I see you are still following Jesus' example.

Because he called the many people who defeated him, names.

Right?

I made a point to you that you obviously didn't like.
You're nothing but a troll.
Go to a titty bar, dude.
You need "something".
I stopped reading at the first sentence-- so that is what I replied to.

Since you started with a blatant lie?

I felt no need to read further.

As for the titty bar?

What **is** it with you god-robots, and your obsession with **sex**?

So can reading a comic book.

It still does not make Spiderman real.

No more than it makes your equally fictional Jesus real.

.. a cat lover! Most excellent ..

.. do you believe your cat loves you or do you have faith that your cat loves you because (s)he's a mammal ??..

.. we really don't know if our pets love us, we just enjoy thinking they do ..

.. you may say the same concept applies to someone who believes in God ..

.. so, is it faith or belief ??..

I can give you his reply before he does.
It will be a dodge based on word-meanings.
He will say that "atheism" means only rejecting specific god-claims, and is therefore, consistent with skepticism.
His argument will rely on the mischaracterization of the two main terms in the discussion.
Getting off the hook, to him, is simply a matter of controlling the vocabulary.
It's a common rhetorical trick. Propagandists use it all the time.
We attorneys have to do that too, for competent representation of our clients.

Vocabulary control matters.
