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.

I can see why some need to think there is a God. Some need that thought since most humans are not Evolved enough just yet to know truths or even truths about who a dollar bill has certain things on it.

Most young guys like 20 or younger are Atheists now so religion is gone in the States in 20 years like Western Europe but for the next 20 years, some are going to still need the fake stuff and the government knows it.

Some of us have certain ways we knew early in life the truth but not saying how that was since not getting in trouble here with that info so will stick with science on the topic there is no God.

Be ready for first contact soon. We broke light speed three times now! Yes, humans have visitors for a long time now watching not harming and about to make contact in next ten to 20 years publicly and with it, religion is gone so people grow up for sure and learn this Galaxy has lot of life in it even some on the Solar system and most is positive but some is not but that is tended to by visitors protecting you for thousands of years already.

As for other Galaxies, they are teaming with life too well more advanced than this large Galaxy that becomes tiny when going into the Universe and then other Universes in Quantum Physics.

BTW, I can say it since no one here would believe it but I have a design of a ship almost ready to travel warp speed for humans yet some materials needed are not found on earth but magnetism and aluminum are. It takes three sections of wings once anti-gravity kicks in on earth plane level then larger wings close, mid size boost speed once in Space then close and tiny wings reach under light speed since speed of light is limit of light only and then they close and boom, it is light 8 cubed! That is moving. Ship is cigar shaped but all is great since no worry that anyone here would believe much of that truth.

Main thing is to get past the religion BS in humanity so humans can get moving in real progress and be ready for a big future where there are no wars. This is why, I selected the Star Trek image since it is so funny how that one TV series had it all right so one brilliant human who had a little help from will just say friends imo that were out of your world but can look just like you and are not out to harm you or do testing on you in space ships lol That is not what it is. You are being watched in a good way and you had help many times in the past and your technology is not fully human. You are using some things a little fast like the Net but sex addiction seems to be a problem which is why I have nickname sexual type when is not important other than to relate.

Any real Atheists who know you are not alone in the Galaxy feel free to PM me.

I'm not giving out State secrets and fear nothing of any nation since no reason to but I go by your laws.

It aint necessarily so wrote:
Have you ever studied moral theory - so-called metaethics? You're describing consequentialism, one of three major ways of thinking about ethics. The other two, deontological ethics and virtue ethics, deal with obedience to rules, and good intentions.
From http://www.philosophybasics.com/branch_ethics...
"Consequentialism (or Teleological Ethics) argues that the morality of an action is contingent on the action's outcome or result. Thus, a morally right action is one that produces a good outcome or consequence. Consequentialist theories must consider questions like "What sort of consequences count as good consequences?", "Who is the primary beneficiary of moral action?", "How are the consequences judged and who judges them?"
This is contrasted with deontological ethics and virtue ethics:
"Deontology is an approach to ethics that focuses on the rightness or wrongness of actions themselves, as opposed to the rightness or wrongness of the consequences of those actions. It argues that decisions should be made considering the factors of one's duties and other's rights (the Greek 'deon' means 'obligation' or 'duty')."
"Virtue Ethics, focuses on the inherent character of a person rather than on the nature or consequences of specific actions performed. The system identifies virtues (those habits and behaviours that will allow a person to achieve "eudaimonia", or well being or a good life), counsels practical wisdom to resolve any conflicts between virtues, and claims that a lifetime of practising these virtues leads to, or in effect constitutes, happiness and the good life."
I haven't exactly studied it.

I'm interested.

Most of my education in this area came from watching TV shows, mostly science fiction.

I can see value in each of these constructs. What I follow is my own.

It's offensive to ask someone if they are gay?
That suggests there is something wrong with being gay.
You want gayness to be accepted as normal, but take offense at the suggestion of something normal?
What a moron you are, Darwin's Dogpile.
I disagree with your take, Buck.

The suggestion is implicit in the question.

I was about to reply to your question, but I'll leave it to IANS, who I am sure shares my perspective and can articulate it much better.

It's a wonder, and more than enough for me.

I did enjoy the PM about me watching too much Sci Fi but like I wrote back, I watch very little Television yet I do like your Star Trek because it's inventive and your cell phone idea came from that as well as other things like your 3D printing which is soon to be 4D.

I already know your future for the 2020s and that is your wireless electricity that is coming and how your homes and other structures filled with wires and outlets will be like finding a phone booth soon. That is very close to being your reality so no more cords and useless wires everywhere.

If I needed money, I would know which stocks trading for 50 cents that will be $300 a share in five years but not going to do that since not needed but I know the technology that is coming this century through your 29th. All your past, present and future is happening all at once including the Galactic war in your future that earth and allies are losing yet there is hope for that but for this century, getting your world order established as one government like your Star Trek series is needed and it starts with the Americas being as one while Russia and China merge but end of this century no more wars, no more military needed for other nations at least. A new kind of military will be needed for your future and not for one nation against another since there will be only one earth no nations.

It's not aliens that played with your future time travel and got things mixed up for this time. That was you and who says humans are not aliens to this planet? Your DNA is that of Mars and other places combine so you are not even natural to this planet.

There will be no WW3 as governments already found out because it will not be allowed.

The seeing eye in the Pyramids tends to that and it is in the currency you still use for a little longer before you become cashless society in 20 years.

What do you think is on bar codes you use? Mark of a beast? lol. No, there is no such thing but things that are much more important yet it is getting humans ready for first contact since that is near now you broke light speed.

Most here never knew light speed was broken and that I am sure of so will post one of your links.

We all know that you're a Creationist Cult Member now, so you can take your hatred and intolerance to another forum instead.

No such thing as god, never has been and nothing you can do about it.

Except maybe threatening people with imaginary hell.

Sorry, Dave, but since we're discussing wisdom. and since you feel free to be candid about me, I'm sure you won't mind if I return the favor and tell you that you are neither kind nor wise. You are fool. This post of yours is the evidence of it yet again, as was your insipid definition of wisdom a few posts back. You are a horrible judge of people, most especially yourself.
You somehow miss the obvious. Evidence doesn't matter to you, or you can't recognize it when it goes by you. Buck and I agree on almost nothing,and yet we have each been kind to the other.
But you're in a coma. You're mentally sluggish. So you just miss that, and make inane comments instead.Your judgment is horrible,
And I can't remember a single constructive sentence from you commending or encouraging somebody else ever. You give nothing.
.
Any time you'd like some more feedback like this, just let me know by giving me one of your nasty little critiques of me, OK?
Or, if you have enough intelligence and self-respect to recognize the consequences of these exchanges for you, maybe you can just put that ugly habit of yours to bed altogether. Your choice. You really don't need anybody pointing out your failings. I promise you that you are the loser. It's remarkable that you haven't discerned that yourself yet.
So what do you say?

Poor IANS.

He gets on his soapbox and rails against the system, religions, or whatever or whoever currently disturbs him.

Then he rails when those in his audience critique him and his delivery method of his message on how to save mankind..

Even if it did, which it does not, there is no evidence for the existence of any deities.
