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.

Both Christians and non believers can enjoy nature. I don’t think I have the market on such enjoyment. It makes me a little sad that you believe this is all there is. I would love for you to join me when we get to the other side.
You are no doubt a wonderful person. All I can do is hope and pray that you have a revelation from God himself. It happened to my Father less than a year before he died. I couldn’t save my Dad, I tried. He was so deeply entrenched in atheism.
One night while he was in the hospital, a very special visitor came to see him dressed in middle eastern attire. It wasn’t a drug induced imagination. There was a witness. This man touched my Dad and he instantly changed from Atheism to a follower of Christ.
Before that happened I never ever heard my Dad pray. After that revelation he truly changed. I can only hope you get a revelation like he did. God Bless.

Well, atheism is a part of the communist creed.
But you are correct.
Communist atrocities were not done in the name of atheism.
More importantly, most atheists feel no affinity for communism, especially in the U.S.. It is hard to ignore the obvious truths that capitalism provides the best environment for business, that when business thrives, general prosperity follows, and that general prosperity tends to enhance comfort and reduce suffering in any population. Enhanced comfort and reduced suffering promotes peace and reduces violence. These are all good things that are impossible within a communistic structure. Modern American atheists share no kinship with the communists of the past.

I think that if you look at the history of most of the communist countries, prior to becoming communists, you will find that religion was a very power influence on the government and the population was, by a large majority, very poor.

For the communist leaders, what is the first tings to be attacked? Religion and the rich. Both were seen as tyrants who exploited the majority.

Russia is a very good example. In China, the christain religion was seen as a western power that would complete with the communist government.

China did not ban religion, just the western religions.

There has been a lot of talk in the U.S. about the 99%'ers, in the last year or so. Some people are starting to believe that the rich are too rich and too powerful for them to get a fair shake. They claim that the rich are not paying their fair share of the taxes.

While they march in protest, they pass several huge, ornate, churches, that sit in the heart of the city. Soon, they will realize that these churches do not pay taxes.

How many churches are in your city? The catholic church, the one who claims that they cannot pay their sex abuse victims, recently bought the crystal cathedral for $58 million! How long are the poor/abused going to put up with that?

Here is a true story, I swear to god!

In the early 70's, my family went on a missionary to Zimbabwe, Africa. While their, after helping the natives drill for water and teaching them about god and jesus, my brothers and I were relaxing to some music, the Doors, the Who, the Rolling Stones, whomever; anyway the chief and some of the high council came to my dad and ask why his children were calling to the devil!

My parents were stunned to say the least! They came running to our tent and asked what we were doing. We told him, just listening to music. The chief said, "Those drum sounds, that is the same music that we played to summon demons!"

We all sat around, praying to god for forgiveness and breaking all those evil records!

True story!! Swear to god!

<quoted text>Okay, missy liar, what is your security clearannce level and what does that entail. You really are worthless. You do not seem to have the mustard mouth to tell us whether counting passing the 1srt, 2nd, 3rd, and 4th grade with a D- average entitles you to call yourself a dog catcher or just a dog.
What a load of gibberish from an expected and deliberately ignorant source who offers clueless imbecility, spite and vindictive hatefulness as argument. You must be christian, yes?

Once again you are guessing because you cannot (or are unwilling) to accept facts, it’s a christian trait.

You seem to be good at guessing, your problem is that you don’t seem able to guess the right answer, it’s a christian failing

You want to argue facts the bring it on, lets have as many about you as I have offered here on topx. Then we can start comparing and arguing, whether you top trumps me on educational qualifications is up for grabs, so come on, have the courage of your blathering words or butt out.

What do we know about you from the few posts you have offered.

1 You have nothing to contribute

2 you are deliberately ignorant

3 you are a liar for the christian cause (one reason christianity is a dying religion)

4 You are poorly educated

5 You make wild and unsubstantiated guesses

6 You are vindictive and spiteful

7 You stink (your own words)

I can add that the chances are you are a lonely and semi senile old woman, the lifelong faith you hold in the christian church has left you empty, bitter and wanting.

Not a bad start for someone who has been on topix fpr perhaps less than 24 hours. Just think what the next few days will tell us about you

No it's well known, atheist are among the tightest with their money vis-a-vis charity. They WISH they had a track record of generosity. Fact is atheists make great cynics and many atheists are; and a good cynic, a Samaritan does not make.

Is that really the best criticism of atheism you can make?

Try Bill Gates, a guy who's donated more than anyone else on the planet to good causes.

Those in WWII died because of tyrants. These tyrants were con men and they conned entire nations. These Nazi’s believed themselves to be superior beings. Much like you atheist see yourselves as superior to Christians.
They believed the Jews to be less than dogs. This is counter to any civil Christian belief. The Nazi’s had a cult hold on Germany. This goes to show how dangerous a cult ideology can be to a society.
I would hate to image a society controlled by militant atheist. They would treat the Christians just like the Nazi’s treated the Jews. The only problem there are about 200 million of us here in the states. Most of us own firearms and have had military training.
So all you can do is stomp your feet and throw fits claiming we are liars. Powerless to do anything about our freedom.
Hitler was christian and did what he did based on christian teachings, he had papal backing and a papal ambassador, he tried to con nobody, his nationalism was infectious.

Stalin had a christian education and on the fastback to priesthood and in his later years embrace christianity again. He did what he did based on christian teachings

As did Radovan Karadzic and Ratko Mladic, as did the KKK, the IRA, the NLFT, Anders Behring Breivik, as did James Holmes. Genocide and murder is a teaching of the babble. That is so strange that funnymentalist christians always seem top slope their shoulders and try and escape the stigma that christianity bedstows.

Christianity is comprised of over 38,000 cults, do you want to rephrase the comment “This goes to show how dangerous a cult ideology can be to a society.“?

You mean they would treat the christians just like chriistians treat anyone who is not chritsian, nope it does not work like that in atheism but of course you would never be able to understand that

Ok so threats of firearms is the big christian thing now, sound very much like nazism to me,– jeesus f*cking christ on a cruthc, you are mental.

Close but no banana, atheism does not go far enough, that’s just a term for people who don’t believe there is a god or gods. As a theists bastardisation of the term they use it to apply to people who don’t think exactly like them

I know there is no god.
