#155 Posted by EboyLOL (5358 posts) -

then why do you call yourself an atheist?

battlefront23

1) I never called myself an atheist... I'm an agnostic.

2) Buddhism doesn't have a 'deity' per say, it can be religious, or it can be a guide to life.

a global flood 9Km deep, unlike creationism, is a testable hypothesis which makes predictions. We can see if these predictions are true, and evaluate the validity of the hypothesis. We have analyzed these predictions and have found that they are not observable and contradict the flood hypothesis

Because it's ridiculous to label a candidate for any sort of office as unqualified because of their personal beliefs, which are not meant to coincide with their powers of office. It's amazing how 52% of people in America are willing to throw away a reasonable candidate just because they belive in something different, or nothing at all.

This isn't a matter of defending atheism, it's a matter of defending qualified candidates that are discarded of their chances at getting into office simply because of a lack of faith.

Well if all belie systems, un MY opinion, Christianity makes the most sense.

Im a christian, but not because it makes the most sense to me. Im a christian because it helps me as a person. Honestly, atheism really does make most sense to me, but it doesn't help me as a person. christianity does. believing in a God who loves me so much that he'd send his only begotten son to die for me and save me from eternal damnation.

Good question, I'm not sure. I mean it's good that at least they believe in God, but creationism is a pretty big deal for Christianity, and if they don't believe in that, then I don't think they have a very strong belief in Christianity or at least fully understand it and its principles.

Why would I want someone who doesn't believe in God leading this country? Someone that is letting God lead his or her life is going to make better decisions than someone that isn't letting God guide his or her life. All we need is a president that will take away religious freedoms and persecute those that believe in God. Is that what you all want? If you don't believe in God then that's your choice, but an athiest will certainly not make a good president due to the fact that this person will make decisions based on public pressures and feelings. They won't know how to discern a situation and ask God to help them make the best decision. That's the difference between an athiest and someone who believes and follows God.

I don't think an atheist president would go as far as to hinder the rights of someone who is religious. If anything, they would seek to bring balance to the political board by not being biased in favor of Christiantiy, which has been prevalent for too long. I'm not saying being Christian and in a position of power is bad, I'm just saying that it's borderline unconstitutional to bring it into politics, as separation of Church and State is meant to apply to everyone. However, lately I'm starting to question if we even look at the constitution as much as we should.
