Everyone whos arguing, Episcopaleanism is where its at. Evolution is obvious, the bible is fiction, hopefully our minds dont cease to exist after we die like athiests think, thats too much for my mind to understand, theres no heaven and hell, just a higher sense of being after this life. Hopefully

And so we see both sides; the believer and the atheist get agitated, aggressive and even abusive (including a member of the moderation staff) when their faith must stand up to any scrutiny at all. "I don`t need to prove there is no God, and you are an a** Hole / did you take being a dick 101..." etc. And as I pointed out, it was a believer that was honest enough to admit they are operating on faith. Good for you and I think the snarling atheists here (and the world over)could take a lesson from you.

Still, most of the scientifically acquired data fails to point towards the existence of a deity, and our real faith lies in the fact that there is always a reasonable and logical explanation for everything that happens in this universe, which isn`t really faith; it`s knowledge based on experience. Perhaps not our own experiences, but those of professionals which can be repeated by anyone with the inclination to do so.

It`s the Christian routine of argument, isn`t it?

1. Get called out on how everything is the Bible is bullsh*t and verifiably false.

2. Fall back on a much more vague account of God, i.e. Creationism falling back on Intelligent Design.

3. Argue that God is just as unprovable as is the lackthereof.

Newsflash: if you don`t believe in the bible, then the God you refer to is not a Christian God, hence, you are not a Christian. You are right, in a sense, Shrodingle, neither argument has solid data to prove and disprove the existence of a deity. WE, however, do have such evidence to disprove the existence of YOUR deity. The real difference is, we don`t need to prove anything. The burden of proof is not on us, and if we are wrong, we most certainly will not be going to hell.

@stonker and imlaramarie - I`m well aware of what he means, my point is that an atheist doesn`t need to prove anything when all he does to be an atheist is simply to disbelieve in the existence of any gods.

@Schr0dinger:

Dude, really?? Since when is Atheism a "faith"? What self-proclaimed atheists have you been talking to? Age 50-59, really? So, you`re saying you had to work at being stupid all these years?

You seem to think all atheists are scientists, which is not the case. However, some scientists are atheists, which is exactly the case. It is not a goal for an atheist to necessarily prove anything unless of course they take on the challenge to do so. That`s just it, true atheism encapsulates the term of "indifference". The truth of the matter is that I, as an atheist, am indifferent to your conceived notion of deity and choose to brand you a moron for little other reason than to rag on a moron. Whereas a theist would argue because they are butthurt, offended or feel a sense of conviction to do so. (slaves to their own faith)

I`m with Scgr0dinger on this one. Not really sure why people are coming against him; he makes a valid point.

Let`s be honest with ourselves. None of us have undeniable proof either way. I personally believe in God STRICTLY on Faith. I do not try to argue with those who do not believe in God because it`s a waste of time. If someone wants faith they have to find it on their own. You can`t argue them because the argument usually turns out pretty illogical. Faith has no logic and that is what makes that difficult. If they are intelligent argument will do nothing. Faith is something that is discovered by the individual or (sometimes) brainwashed into someone. It can`t be argued into a person,

@animacha He isnt asking atheists to prove they dont believe in god.

I hope the poostorm directed at Schr0dinger is because he`s being a bit pompous and not because of the point he`s making. The way I see it nobody on either side has proof there is or isn`t a god (or gods) or a life after death. So far science has scored all the points but science also knows things get very odd around the edges. We won`t solve the mysteries of the universe if we keep putting science before religion or religion before science.

Albert Einstein put it better:
"Science without religion is lame. Religion without science is blind."

And as a matter of fact, I have had very intense discussion on just this subject with some very smart people on both sides of the issue. In the end they both plant their feet firmly on faith. Neither side has a shred of evidence and both are unhappy with anyone that disagrees with them.

So young man, I have "payed attention to the argument" as it were. I just have yet to be shown any proof.

And Ericka225, I agree dear, but please learn where the comma key is.

ultimakewl, tru tru i see your point (forgive short typing habit hard to break) And i full well agree with what you said that not everyone who is not part of a religion is hopeless, depressed, exc.. What i was saying is that when people who do need something to believe in to be happy keep being told that its pointless and its stupid it whears them down. What i was saying is it is of no harm to you to let them have it. For example if someone was diagnosed with canser of the brain and they were told that there was noting medical science could do for them that they were going to die but they were religious and did believe that there is miracles or somting better out there after this life i would think would be better than giving up hope and just waiting to die even if that was going to happen anyway. I love this site and i like comming on here but i see stuff like this all the time and everyone blames religion as the route of all evil its not not everyone is like that stereotype people

I love the comments on this site. Often they are as entertaining as the content if not more so.

The consistent thing I see amongst "Atheists" and "Believers" is their blind faith in something they can not prove. Both are wandering in the dark and neither has a single answer/provision/point they can prove. And through it all they are unable to recognize that they are indeed birds of a feather. Both stand staunchly by their faith with absolutely no evidence. At least the believers understand they operate under faith. The atheist is not even that honest with themselves. They crow on about logic and proof but apply none of it to their own position.

It`s a SAYING! This has NOTHING to do with guns, actual gunpowder or redneck revolution. It`s not actually recommending that you keep a store of dry gunpowder so that you can rise up against the evil government. It`s recommending that you are always ready for the second coming, i.e. don`t wait until tomorrow to repent as the end of days could be today. If the truck owner had put "keep the car running" instead would you be saying "Christians are a bunch of redneck 4x4 gas guzzelers who are destroying the planet"?

cba to read through the masses of typical iab religious debate, so this has probably been said.

Keep your powder dry is a saying. It comes from the days of muskets where you would have to load them with gunpowder. If your powder was damp then the gun wouldn`t fire. So you`d keep your powder dry at all times, just in case there was an attack. Keep your powder dry means always be prepared.

To be fair terrorist estimates vary wildly. I took what I feel is a good figure (the ones I used for simulation building for some of my research), but in the interest of full disclosure, you can argue that figure up to:

300K Americans, (or 0.1% of the population) would be needed to match the current terrorism situation.

This assumes the highest possible figure for terrorists (1.2M) and the lowest possible figure of 1.2 Billion Muslims, rather than 1.5.

The 1.2M is, in my opinion, absurd, but whatever.
Glenn Beck thinks it`s 150 million, but he`s *insane*. 75 times the entire Chinese army. Thanks for that Glenn.

Putting those figures into the CIA and FBI models, that gives you a total of around 37 BILLION PEOPLE worldwide who are potential terrorists. That`s no typo.

So yeah.
Low figure ~20K.
Mid 120K.
High 1.2M.
Beck high: 5 times earth`s population.

7) Arabs react to this attack by taking over Texas with 100k troops. (Telling their people Texas will welcome them with open arms, as they always talk of seceding anyway).
8) Arabs ride this wave of good will, anger, and ignorance, and decide to take over Virginia and New York to boot.

Now, what is the American reaction?
Multiply it by 5 (Muslim population > American by 5).

You now have the history of the Arab world, and a comparable reaction.

You think you`d have 1K guys with guns and ready to go? The ME reasonably should have 5K.
However, at 1K, that`s just 0.0003% of the population.

To match current terrorist estimates, America would need 24K people to go rogue. 0.008% of the population.

I`ve not inserted an equivalent of American funding during the cold war to fight the USSR in my above scenarios.

That`s first. Secondly, we need to look at the scenarios and the comparables.

First: Americans and Muslims both say equally (6% of Americans, 7% of Muslims) that targeting civilians is justifiable (Zogby)


Muslim Terrorism comes from 3 places.
Israel. Afghanistan. Iraq. This accounts for 98% of all Muslim terrorism.


Lets assume:
1) You have (almost) no military.
2) Illegal immigrants pour into Arizona until they equal the native population. They then demand the state be independent and controlled by them.

* What is the American reaction?
History suggests, war.
In this scenario, you lose. Does everyone in AZ (including now 3M refugees of the old inhabitants) behave?

3) There is some violence over the next 60 years.
4) Arabs fund the new settlers.
5) Arabs place troops throughout the USA, mainly in support of New-Arizona.
6) There is ONE major attack against the ME.

Oooh didn`t realize the conversation had already teetered into terrorism.

I might not be able to hang in this conversation very long, so I`ll try one summary write up.

1) Islamic Terrorists are not more widespread than any other type. America, technically, has more terrorists.
2) Islamic TerrorISM is more widespread. The groups are more active.
3) Suicide bombers have a higher efficiency rate than regular bombers. (Suicide bombers kill more per terrorist than 12 IRA members planting conventional bombs).

"Why is it in the news so much" is answered partially by the above.
Note: It requires no change in "number of evil people" in a given population to create the disparity.

From above, you can easily see that a terrorist group of 10K, can achieve what the IRA would have needed 120K to do simply by attack style.

Hutaree: The group was allegedly preparing for what they believed would be an apocalyptic battle with the forces of the Antichrist, who they believed would be supported and defended by local, state and federal police departments. On their website, all police and military members who would support the current U.S. system of local, state or federal government were described as members of the "brotherhood", and were considered by the Hutaree to be "enemies."
From March 28 to March 30, 2010, nine people thought to be Hutaree members were arrested in police raids in Michigan, Ohio, and Indiana (in Hammond), for their alleged involvement in a plot to kill various police officers and possibly civilians using illegal explosives and/or firearms. An undercover agent played a role in the investigation that led indictments.

Concerned Christians: Between 60 and 80 members of the group disappeared from their homes and jobs in Colorado in October 1998 and were the subject of a search. On January 3, 1999, they gained notoriety when they were arrested and deported from Israel as part of an Israeli effort to protect the Al-Aqsa mosque from extremist Christian groups, codenamed "Operation Walk on Water". According to Israeli police, the Concerned Christians were one of several independent groups who believed it must be destroyed to facilitate the return of Jesus Christ. The group members said that they were law abiding religious pilgrims there to await the return of Jesus but had no plans to participate in any illegal activity.

you are implying that there is no other form of hope in a persons life other than religion. and that without religion there are no morals.
also science isnt about peace of mind its about proof, its about providing answers and backing them up with legitimate tangible evidence. science isnt about having all the answers, its about trying to find them and not assuming its some invisible omnipotent being.

people dont need religion to have hope and morals
just like not all religious people are bible thumping, gay bashing, apocalypse ranting idiots, not all atheists/agnostics (in fact probably most are not) depressed, hopeless, amoral asshats

"Origin

The allusion is to gunpowder which soldiers had to keep dry in order to be ready to fight when required. This advice reputedly originated with Oliver Cromwell during his campaign in Ireland. In Ballads of Ireland, 1856, Edward Hayes wrote:

"There is a well-authenticated anecdote of Cromwell. On a certain occasion, when his troops were about crossing a river to attack the enemy, he concluded an address, couched in the usual fanatic terms in use among them, with these words - `put your trust in God; but mind to keep your powder dry`."

19th century citations of the phrase invariably give the full version - trust in God and keep your powder dry. This emphasizes that the keep your powder dry was seen only as an additional insurance. This is made clear in a piece from The Times Literary Supplement, 1908:
"In thus keeping his powder dry the bishop acted most wisely, though he himself ascribes the happy result entirely to observanc

People in the South, have long memories, and learned well from their English forefathers.

Might I quote from the English Bill of Rights (the one from England, Not the US Bill of Rights.)

"That the subjects which are Protestants may have arms for their defence..."

Hmm, lets see...how about the Crusades, the Inquisition, the 100 years war, the slaying of pagans in North & South America and Northern Europe, witch hunts, and more recently the IRA?

Christianity`s history is soaked in blood. Read a history book for once.

Keep your powder dry so that it will light when you try to ignite it. It`s a hang over from when muskets were around. In short.. be prepared.

Sigh. You know, talking about `keeping your powder dry` (not getting your gun from 200 years ago wet, so the gunpowder will light), you aren`t helping the public image of Christianity.

NOTICE OF OFFENSE

IT IS ALLEGED by the State, that on or about the 12th of Passover, 18 BC, Jesus Christ, son of either Joseph the Carpenter OR of YHWH Creator of the Universe (alleged Perpetrator claims both to the true), DID deliberately and with malicious forethought change 37 kilo`s of Grade A cocaine seized at his residence by officers of the Drug Legion, into ordinary flour, in order to avoid prosecution, and further, did make jest of the fact that he had changed it into `self-raising` powder, `the significance of which shall become apparent in due course` according to the alleged perpetrator. He was subsequently charged with Tampering With Evidence, Driving An Unlicensed Chariot, and Being A Divine Smarta*s.

ryan99: Redneck gun enthusiast who also happens to be a Christian.

Who also *happens* to be a Christian? Mmm-hmmm. You could have just said "rightwing nutjob". Not that your way was wrong, per se, but, it`s sort of redundant. Like saying "gun enthusiast who just happens to watch FOXNews" or "Republican who just happens to be a raging homophobe". You know, like that. Rightwing nutjob is just more efficient. ;-)

Its a misquote of Oliver Cromwell "Put your trust in God, my boys, but keep your powder dry". Cromwell`s troops were crossing a river, their guns/rifles/muskets used gun powder, which does not function while wet. This may also be a member of some of the more extreme Christian movements here in the U.S.
