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.

In reality, that's for anyone who would prefer not to use the term, for whatever reason.
"6–18. Administration of oath of enlistment
A commissioned officer of any Service will administer the Oath of Enlistment in DD Form 4 orally, in English, to each applicant. Make a suitable arrangement to ensure that the oath is administered in a dignified manner and in proper surroundings. Display the U.S. flag prominently near the officer giving the oath. The words “So help me God” may be omitted for persons who desire to affirm rather than to swear to the oath." - Army Regulation 601–210 Personnel Procurement, Active and
Reserve Components Enlistment Program
For instance, I didn't use the term, and it wasn't due to atheism.
I've tried to explain this to him (in simpler terms) on another thread; he rejected it then, too.

Arr Arr makes the rules, and no one's allowed to prove him wrong. He's got jeezus in him, y'know.

Do you like surprises?
To a person, those who have near-death experiences report losing all dread of death and concerns for mortality.
I guess it could just be a fortunate coincidence.
Here's a poem, by Rumi, that comes close to expressing my world view:


ONLY BREATH

Not Christian or Jew or Muslim, not Hindu,
Buddhist, sufi, or zen. Not any religion

or cultural system. I am not from the East
or the West, not out of the ocean or up

from the ground, not natural or ethereal, not composed of elements at all. I do not exist,

am not an entity in this world or the next,
did not descend from Adam or Eve or any

origin story. My place is placeless, a trace
of the traceless. Neither body or soul.

I belong to the beloved, have seen the two
worlds as one and that one call to and know,

first, last, outer, inner, only that
breath breathing human being.

Hey dipshit, you told me to ask God how Joseph felt.

You didn't ask me to report the answer.

Well no, actually. If I wanted to write "I don't really know or care how the universe works", I'd probably write it as "I don't really know or care how the universe works".
No, you wouldn't. That would be a sign of concession.

You know you would; that's your answer to everything. No thought required.

Hitting a baby is abuse.

What part are you having trouble with ?
I didn't change my story. You are a proven liar once again.

You don't.
That's very telling....

It depends on who the spanker is. Lots of you christly-types use it as an excuse for beating their kids.

So, what's your excuse for hitting (not beating, but "hitting," as you called it) your wife?

However, you said: Jim wrote:
"god" is how religious liars spell "I don't really know or care how the universe works",

Provide evidence for that assertion.
Read topix posts made by religious liars.

Read news.

Let me know how you go perusing all this evidence.

Does your love affair with Buck have no limits?

Now you're parroting his name insults.

Why not stick to your own "purfesir" method of denigrating?

<quoted text>I hope it's more powerful than your argument against David Barton.

Jesus' existence is settled history. Any naysayers remaining are kooks and fanatics.

Which explains your attraction.
It is not settled history. There is no evidence for the jesus having been a real person. Enjoy your fantasies.

I spent the last three days in Miami.
I saw many Europeans there.
Some were French (some of them Parisians, some from Provence), some Italian, some Spanish (Madrid
Spanish, Barcelona Spanish),even some Scandinavians (some Danes, some Swedish).
All of them, collectively, were Europeans.
I won't belabor it, but even you should begin to get the point.
Miami, Cuba?

And that's something you cannot prove.

Oh God, not again....

Short version:

We were fighting
She bit me in the chest
I bopped her on the head to make her stop
