Kapanalig Sa Wala - Literally, one who also have faith in nothing, is a play on words and wasn't really intended to mean something. It was made in jest to call the atheist camp when I was still actively debating god in one of the demised public forums out there. I think walang pananalig (faithless) would have proven to be more precise but I think the intended humor will be lost.

I'm just curios about the way you guys pursue your belief. It looks like you're really zealous in being a member of the religion called "atheism" in the guise of science.

Well I just pray that the power of the blood of the Lord Jesus Christ that was shed on the cross will overcome the power of the devil that has blinded you and one day you will experience His healing power like what I've experienced.

atheism is not a religion. nor is science. everybody, including theists appreciate science.

btw, try as you will, prayer doesn't work.

that is the best escape that an atheist can say tsk, tsk, tsk, but in reality it is a "RELIGION", you may be blinded right now. you can honestly say that its not but pause for a moment and look for the meaning of religion, perhaps you will be enlightened my dear friend.

You are the one who has misunderstood. You don't believe in the god Zeus, right? Do you call your non-belief on Zeus a religion (non-Zeusism)? So if you follow your logic, you don't believe in Shiva or Vishnu or any of the Hindu gods too, right? So you have 1 more religion under your name (non-Hunduism), and so on. Atheism is the non-belief in ALL the gods for one reason or another. Science has got nothing to do with belief in god. What you have against me is a straw man. A basic logical fallacy.

You are the one who is confused my friend. Did i say science has something to do with belief in god? What i said was "atheism is a religion in the guise of science." i made a pretty clear statement, right? And please don't resort to elude the issue by hiding under the comfort of "basic logical fallacy". It makes me laugh when I hear atheists say "there is no god" because of such discoveries......citing the "so called" "works" of scientists who are atheists such as darwin, dawkins, etc. but when confronted with the staments based on discoveries of scientists who are proponents of "id" would simply hide, cover and get away without resolving the issue by declaring that "id" is religious. And you which i presumed to be a devout atheist that appreciates "reason" would simply elude, escape and cover under the shield and comfort of "logic" and what makes it even funnier is that i don't even find the essentials of logic on your explanation. he he he.
well anyway

God bless you my friend.

thanks a lot for allowing me to be able to have short discussion on your blog.

God Loves You.

If you wish to argue about anything, you cannot throw away logic out your window. It's the foundation of good arguments.
