Quote# 58263

I consider atheism a faith-based religion for a few reasons. For one, you believe that there can be an effect without a cause, i.e. the universe exists with no cause outside of itself. Atheists believe that on faith. Atheists also believe in mythical creatures for which there is no evidence, i.e. all the transitional forms between lizard and mammal, for instance. Thirdly, atheists believe that natural selection can turn fish into eagles, which again is faith. Thus, atheism is faith based.

Where did god come from?

"Atheists also believe in mythical creatures for which there is no evidence, i.e. all the transitional forms between lizard and mammal, for instance."

Show me the giant man with a long white beard who lives on a cloud.

"Thirdly, atheists believe that natural selection can turn fish into eagles, which again is faith."

If your myth is true why is there still dirt?

There. Fixed.

Also, we believe that technology can turn mineral-laden rocks into sheet metal, which again is faith.

An athiest is not required to believe any of that shit. The only things atheists have in common is that they aren't buying the shit that you are selling. You are a salesperson...and a bad one at that. Do salespeople often attack those who don't buy their products?

I'm tired of you morons who can't define your own damn god trying to define what other people believe (incorrectly) and then you attack that misrepresentation.

Your god is a straw god.

Your false dichotomy is not impressive either. Maybe the universe just always existed. Maybe life always existed -makes more sense than your invisible man or your poof notion (because Creationism doesn't even qualify as a theory).

Actually, atheists don't believe in God.

erm, no. That is god you are talking about.

For one, you believe that there can be an effect without a cause

The echidna wants to have a word with you.

Thirdly, atheists believe that natural selection can turn fish into eagles

Erm, no. Again. Your misunderstanding of evolution and atheism does not count a valid argument.

[I consider atheism a faith-based religion for a few reasons.]

All of them would be wrong. But please continue.

[For one, you believe that there can be an effect without a cause, i.e. the universe exists with no cause outside of itself. Atheists believe that on faith.]

That isn't atheism. In fact, that's creationism.

[Atheists also believe in mythical creatures for which there is no evidence, i.e. all the transitional forms between lizard and mammal, for instance.]

There is evidence for transitional forms. Therefore, they aren't mythical.

[Thirdly, atheists believe that natural selection can turn fish into eagles, which again is faith.]

This is a gross oversimplification of the ToE. So much so that I am left with the feeling that you are either profoundly ignorant or willfully lying.

[Thus, atheism is faith based.]

At least you're trying to make a logical argument. Keep working at it.

About the only faith we have is that the scientific method isn't misleading us.

Fine, no problem with you thinking whatever you like, however contentious you may be in the process. But still, there is no God, nor are there any angels. And, no matter how much you hit babies with a hammer, demons and devils still don't exist.

The bible contains errors and is inconsistent.
The bible is a poor guide for life.
The bible is immoral and unethical.

Love and peace, Pule.

No, that was the world's various religions. For instance, taking a dinosaur fossil and imagining it as a lion with wings- a griffin. Peter Griffin would appear much later in a small Rhode Island town.

I consider atheism a faith-based religion for a few reasons.

Hmm... now, would these be reasons or would they be what you BELIEVE are reasons?

I'll betting on the latter...

For one, you believe that there can be an effect without a cause, i.e. the universe exists with no cause outside of itself.

Oh dear... allow me to fix that for you...

For one, I believe that you believe that there can be an effect without a cause, i.e. I believe that you believe the universe exists with no cause outside of itself. Theists believe Atheists believe that on faith. Meanwhile, Theists believe that there can be an effect without a cause, i.e. a god of some kind. Theists admit to believing this on faith while saying that believing something on faith is a bad thing. Yes, I am being contradictory here.

See how it works?

Atheists also believe in mythical creatures for which there is no evidence, i.e. all the transitional forms between lizard and mammal, for instance.

Ah... out with the fixin' hammer again...

Atheists also believe in accept mythical creatures for which there is no fucktons of evidence, i.e. all the transitional forms between lizard and mammal, for instance.

Spot the difference yet?

Thirdly, atheists believe that natural selection can turn fish into eagles, which again is faith.

*sigh* out with the hammer again...

Thirdly, I believe that atheists believe that natural selection can turn fish into eagles, which again is faith. Really, the Atheists accept the evidence that I reject

And...

Thus, atheism is faith based.

Stop! It's Hammer Time!

Thus, I reject reality and believe that atheism is faith based when it really isn't... and stating that it is, is breaking the 9th commandment so I'm going to hell

Yes... much better.

Atheists as a whole believe no such thing. The only thing all atheists have in common is a lack of belief in gods.

Though no one has ever said that nor is that how evolution works.

I consider atheism a faith-based religion for a few reasons.

*SIGH*

For one, you believe that there can be an effect without a cause, i.e. the universe exists with no cause outside of itself.

That has nothing to do with atheism Atheism is living your life without theism or a belief in god regardless of wether a deity exists or not.

Atheists believe that on faith.

*SIGH* say it some more then maybe even you will believe it.

Atheists also believe in mythical creatures for which there is no evidence, i.e. all the transitional forms between lizard and mammal, for instance.

Sorry, that is biology, and they are not mythical Creatures. Biology has nothing to do with atheism because maybe a god did create everything..but proof please. Until then it didnt happen.

Thirdly, atheists believe that natural selection can turn fish into eagles, which again is faith. Thus, atheism is faith based.

That is not how evolution works, and that has nothing to do with atheism.

2/11/2009 5:23:00 PM



Uh, wrong. We require EVIDENCE, which is essentially what faith lacks.

I consider atheism a faith-based religion for a few reasons.

Because you're an uneducated twit?

For one, you believe that there can be an effect without a cause, i.e. the universe exists with no cause outside of itself. Atheists believe that on faith.

No, those of us who actually care about education tend to accept what the Scientific Method has shown us. So far, scientists haven't found the exact answer yet, but they're working on it. Who knows? It might be god after all.

Atheists also believe in mythical creatures for which there is no evidence, i.e. all the transitional forms between lizard and mammal, for instance.

While we certainly haven't found all the transitional forms (fossils are a lot rarer than you've been led to believe), we have found more than enough to prove evolution.

Thirdly, atheists believe that natural selection can turn fish into eagles, which again is faith.

We have the fossils. We win.

Thus, atheism is faith based.

As I said, you're an uneducated twit.

"Atheists also believe in mythical creatures for which there is no evidence, i.e. all the transitional forms between lizard and mammal, for instance."
Apparently the entire non-mammalian portion of the Synapsida is mythical...

No, wait, they're not.

2/11/2009 7:12:27 PM



And you would be wrong.

"I consider atheism a faith based religion..."

which proves you know jack shit about atheism.

"For one, you believe that there can be an effect without a cause, i.e. the universe exists with no cause outside of itself."

One question: What is God's cause? Pleading special consideration doesn't count.

"Atheists also believe in mythical creatures for which there is no evidence, i.e. all the transitional forms between lizard and mammal, for instance."

All consideration about accepting evolution not being a prerequisite for atheism...

Mythical creatures that we have fossils of. By the way, we do not need transitional FOSSILS to link lizards and mammals, idiot. We have a transitional whole CLASS for that. We call them BIRDS!

"Thirdly, atheists believe that natural selection can turn fish into eagles, which again is faith."

Quite a far leap there, witless wonder. You turn ignorance into an art form.

Fish into eagles? They* needed to become amphibians first, then saurians, and then evolve some feathers.

*thousands of generations of "them".
