Atheism requires as much faith as religion?

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 evidence? You have provided nothing other than babble belt and discovery institute clap trap and been out bid by three Popes against your archbishop.
Oh. You provided a Pope saying the Church accepts "Darwinism"?

I didn't see it. Could you post it again, please?

Remember, "evolution" and "Darwinism" are not the same.

I await your post. Surely you aren't lying about it.

I see your archbishop and raise you 3 popes
Where did you get that definition from encyclopaedia Britannica for godbots? Certainly not a dictionary, hang on, just looked it up, sorry to disappoint you buck but the discovery institute does not count an academic source of definition
And even at your best attempt there is nothing in your own definition about materialism and atheism in there, more made up BS?
There you go again, I did not say any Pope does not believe god created life. This must be where you are getting confused, abiogenesis and evolution are two separate things, don’t worry though it’s typical of godbots to confuse and combine them.
As for the rest, all fluff and earwax and by you own definition unrelated to my statement
And you can use capital letters as much as you like, it makes no difference to the fact that I have seen your archbishop with 3 popes…
Did I say embrace??? Or is that another buckism wot u jus thunked up.
I said “accepts” so you lying BS just makes you even more of a liar.
Darwinism?

"Moreover, the Church teaches that the process of evolution is a planned and purpose-driven natural process, guided by God"

Nope. Still waiting for your post showing the Pope accepting Darwinism.
__________

"Archbishop of Washington, Cardinal Theodore Edgar McCarrick, told reporters at the National Press Club last week a contemporary Catholic "need not say that creationism is the only answer -- that in six days or seven days, God made the world," according to the Associated Press.

McCarrick said this concept of "theistic evolution" – agreeing with Darwin's evolutionary theory, given that one accepts God’s guidance in the process -- was the view of the late Pope John Paul II."

Said McCarrick: "As long as in every understanding of evolution, the hand of God is recognized as being present, we can accept that."

Still no Darwinism.

I thought you were going to mention intelligent falling:
"Evangelical Scientists Refute Gravity With New 'Intelligent Falling' Theory - KANSAS CITY, KS—As the debate over the teaching of evolution in public schools continues, a new controversy over the science curriculum arose Monday in this embattled Midwestern state. Scientists from the Evangelical Center For Faith-Based Reasoning are now asserting that the long-held "theory of gravity" is flawed, and they have responded to it with a new theory of Intelligent Falling. "Things fall not because they are acted upon by some gravitational force, but because a higher intelligence,'God' if you will, is pushing them down"

Have you heard about intelligent freezing?
"Some militant secularists believe that water freezes at 32°. The enlightened know that water freezes whenever God wants it to. This transition from water to ice is too complex to happen naturalistically at some random temperature."

MICROSOFT DISCOVERS SOFTWARE EVOLUTION

Press Release:

Microsoft, Inc. announced today a new method of producing innovative computer software programs. It's called "Random variation and selection" Instead of incurring the billions of dollars in costs for having intelligent programmers and developers design new software programs, Microsoft decided they could get new, innovative systems by just randomly modifying old programs. A couple of low paid geeks will then select the modified programs that work best. The selectors, curiously, are blind people.

As pointed out, Adam and Eve did not know the difference between good and evil. God had made them that way. Without a knowledge of good and evil, then they didn't KNOW they were doing wrong. But God punished them anyway.
But this God of yours is supposed to be all knowing and all merciful. This story shows him to be neither.
So what was he doing? Did he intend for humans to be vile sinners all along? Because according to the story, that is what he got.
Capiche?
Capisce.

You're not Biblically trained or educated.
N-th generation. Kinda like the n-th degree. That is, generations unlimited. From the mathematical use of "n" meaning an arbitrary number.
Oh. I've never seen it spelled that way, with the hyphen. Just "nth".

Correct.
But there is no direct observation and measurement of dark matter. All we have is it's supposed effects.
So if you see a rabbit's paw prints in the dirt, you automatically assume that a rabbit's been here.
Try doing that with no evidence of rabbits.

"Microsoft to Buy God

REDMOND, WA Microsoft Corporation today announced its intent to purchase, copyright, and upgrade God Himself. The new product would be named, predictably enough, "Microsoft God," and would be available to consumers sometime in late 1998, well before the millennium.

"Too many people feel separated from God in today's world," said Dave McCavaugh, director of Microsoft's new Religions division. "Microsoft God will make our Lord more accessible, and will add an easy, intuitive user interface to Him, making Him not only easier to find, but easier to communicate with."

The new Microsoft Religions line will be expanded to include a multitude of add-on products to Microsoft God, including:

Microsoft Crusades: This conversion product will bring all worshiper accounts and prayer files over from previous versions of God, or from competing products like Buddha or Allah.

Microsoft God for the World Wide Web: This product ties Microsoft God with Microsoft Internet Information Server, making our Lord accessible from the World Wide Web using a standard Web browser interface. It introduces several new Web technologies, including Dynamic Salvation and Active Prayer Pages (APP). Donations for the poor can be donated via a Secure Alms Server.

Microsoft Prayers: Using a Windows-based WYSIWYG interface, this product will allow worshipers to construct effective prayers in a minimum of time. A Secure Prayer Channel technology allows guaranteed delivery of the prayer to Microsoft God servers, and Prayer Wizards enable users to construct new types of prayers with a minimum learning curve.

Microsoft Savior: This product will allow worshipers to transfer their sins to its internal Vice Database. After a preset interval, the product will erase itself from the user's system and establish a clear line of secure communications to the user's Microsoft God server. Additionally, Microsoft is expected to announce a line of complimentary products for the new Religions line, which will enhance the functionality of the Microsoft God server product by providing a customized user interface. These interfaces will be based on popular religious sects, allowing worshipers to interact with the new God product in much the same way as the previous version. This line is expected to include Microsoft Protestant, Microsoft Catholicism, Microsoft Judaism (incompatible with Microsoft Savior), etc.

Competitor Netscape Communications denies rumors that it is planning to release a competing product, Netscape Satan, that would attempt to render Microsoft God installations inoperable." - anonymous

I bet you didn't know the Pope is an atheist, God was disproven by E=mc^2, and dinosaurs had no DNA.

Which definition?
There are many.
Add - to combine two or more numbers together to form another final number - as in mathematics. i.e. If you add 1+1+1 together you get 3, not 1
Add - to place something with another object after a request or need for the object or substance. i.e Please add substance to your posts.
BTW - I only did that to prove that you already knew the answers, but were being deceptive by asking. That shows you are not being honest - even in the smallest way.
Why should anyone believe you.
IMO - you are no different than shrink, except in some small ways - you are more polite and intelligent.
Of course I was being deceptive in that, I know the definition of add.

I was taking a cue from the Topix Atheist! handbook.

Yes, you did, actually.

You said the Pope, and the entire chuch, accepts Darwinism.

That is saying they accept that God did not create life.

Chrissy Stalin, if you had simply admitted your use of the term "Darwinism" was wrong from the start, you could have saved yourself all this lying.

But then we would have missed the entertainment of watching you twist.
