I'm pretty sure materialism and naturalism aren't forces and can't create anything.

This guy fails, even by Christian standards!

Pick up a dictionary, knowing definitions of words is good.
Religion: Belief in a deity. Atheists don't believe in a deity, therefore atheism not a religion, Christianity is.
Materialism: a preoccupation with or stress upon material rather than intellectual or spiritual things, not a religion
naturalism: a theory denying that an event or object has a supernatural significance; specifically : the doctrine that scientific laws are adequate to account for all phenomena, again, not a religion
Or was that too hard to follow

This guy is full of Shit (note the capital "S")

So, if religion=a search for a creator of the universe.
a)atheism=no creator of the universe(no intelligent alien doing that)
b)Christianism=there is an intelligent creator borrowed from the Judaic conception of that entity.
So, atheism is a religion but Christianity not?. WTF?

You are in desperate need of a dictionary:
Religion: 1. beliefs and worship: people's beliefs and opinions concerning the existence, nature, and worship of a deity or deities, and divine involvement in the universe and human life; 2. system: an institutionalized or personal system of beliefs and practices relating to the divine.
Atheism: unbelief in God or deities: disbelief in the existence of God or deities
Christianity: 1. religion that follows Jesus Christ's teachings: the religion based on the life, teachings, and example of Jesus Christ
You can call a dog a rock, you can call a rabbit a tree, but regardless of how you redefine them, the dog will remain a dog and the rabbit will remain a rabbit and you will remain delusional.
Oh, and if you really believe that Christianity is "Creator God revealing himself to individuals in real time," then you aren't a Christian.

How does this one even know how to spell the words? That was exceedingly stupid.

"Christianity isn't just some religion! It doesn't need any book of man made stories to- no! What are you doing to my KJV bible? Blasphemy! Nooooooooo!"
Sorry Homunculus, when you've ditched the ancient texts, tax-exempt buildings of worship, and grandly-clad child molestors, then you can claim you're not a religion.
2/2/2008 5:13:31 PM
Oh christ, the old atheism is a religion and christianity is not rhetoric. I fucking love how these people have no clue.

"Christianity is not a religion, as is Atheism (note the capital "A")."
I see the capital A you dumb shit. It doesn't make you right just because you use it, then point it out like you're making some kind of revolutionary point.

If your creator god is revealing himself to people in real time, then why do you people bother going to church and quoting that damned book?
2/2/2008 6:04:18 PM
Frankenstein, you inserted the wrong brain!

materialism did not create the universe. sorry to enlighten you.

"...Christianity is Creator God revealing Himself to individuals in real time. ...
Real time? Is that where one day = 1000 years (or whatever it is that fundies claim whenever they try to make the creation stories in Genesis jive with observable reality)?
Or is it more like when Jesus promised to return "before this generation passes"?

Atheism is not a religion dipshit. It's a term some asshole invented for all those people who unfortunately weren't gullible enough to believe in a magical sky wizard. It's not like us atheist have a church or a dogma or anything.
Just shut the fuck up, your black and white thinking prevents you from leading a full and intellectually stimulating life.
Besides what is this god revealing himself in real-time ? Is it usually time delayed or round-based or something ?
2/2/2008 7:47:19 PM
Okay, for the several months I've been coming here that's the first time I've ever seen a capital A on atheism. In fact, that's the first time I've ever seen a capital A on atheism ever. So you lose there.
God revealed himself to you? So he's a flasher now?

From the Fundy Book of Baseless Assertions.
2/2/2008 8:22:36 PM
Apparently it needs repeating: Atheism is a religion like baldness is a hair color.
2/2/2008 8:39:40 PM
Atheists claim "materialism" or "naturalism" is the creating force of the universe...
Atheists believe there is no creating force of the universe. Giving nothing an "ism" name doesn't make it something.

Mon Cher Homunculus - not to me! Not to me! So for me there is nothing in what you say that bears on reality, in any way, shape or form.
