Quote from: trdsf on January 13, 2022, 06:45:46 AMAh, right into the predicted tu quoque. You seem to really be fond of the sound of your own typing, to have thrown up so many words to say nothing at all.You did no such thing. I asked for studies, you pointed to videos and a nonexistent page at The Atlantic. You may be shocked to learn this, but there's a difference between 'data' and 'oh, this sounds good' -- and in any case, The Atlantic is not a scientific journal.You don't seem to know much, period.And there is is.There is no such thing as 'the atheist religion'. Claiming it is makes no more sense than claiming that not collecting stamps is a hobby.(emphasis added)Your way of thinking is demonstrably wrong. Following a philosophy may be a perfectly rational matter. Your definition would include the scientific method as a religion. And while there are religion-like traits among various secular groups (usually involving a cult of personality around a leader -- compare North Korea, Trumpists, and Stalinism), they are still not religions.Regarding the highlighted section -- that's right up there with the smug arrogance of the extremist evangelicals, and right now I don't see much difference between them and you. The absolute self-assurance of blind belief has the same stench, regardless of the belief.

The last thing the ancient books of â€œ wisdomâ€ (snorts) wanted to doâ€¦.at least those of a religious nature was for man to evolve. They wanted them to remain in place, dutiful to the word and maintain the word and the wayâ€¦.and to pay them and give them the power to fuck you over.

Quote from: Hydra009 on January 13, 2022, 10:26:06 AMDo you ever wonder why people say two different types of things definitely exist but can ever only ever demonstrate the existence of one of them?
Quote from: Greatest I am on January 13, 2022, 10:38:41 AMNo. I do not visualize an immaterial copy of me.
Quote from: Greatest I am on January 13, 2022, 10:38:41 AMNo, given that most of us just accept our dual nature.
QuoteTelepathy, in my case, gave me the evidence and proof I needed to prove that concept to be real, in a certain way.
Quote from: Greatest I am on January 13, 2022, 10:15:47 AM???What is an atheist church, stupid?What blind belief are you putting into me with all your personal garbage?Be clear, or just fuck off, if all you want to do is go personal.RegardsDL

Quote from: SoldierofFortune on January 14, 2022, 10:21:43 AMIt is a philosophical problem, you imbecile, not mine; and how is it yours the realm of philosophy?
Quote from: t.e.smith on April 20, 2022, 09:21:09 PMI see nothing wrong with it as long as it is done politely. In fact we do have an obligation to spread the truth and help people leave religion.
