I must have come over to your house and forced you to read IAB, and that must be why you think I am "forcing" anything down your throat.

No, you could not say the same about my opinion (that it is regurgitated). I have formed my opinions by keeping an open mind and thinking for myself. You and bordo respond straight out of the conservative playbook and it is easy for any rational person to tear holes in it.

I defy you to find any news channel, anywhere, that has taken up the Atheism banner. I can find you hours upon hours of Fox News clips that "inform" people as to what their opinions are without giving them any idea as to why they should believe it.

But if you think I`m a hypocrite, then please quote me saying one thing and then doing the opposite.

bordo, you don`t have a very deep understanding of things do you? It is amazing how wrong you can be in so few words.

The L.A. seal and public schools are paid for by the government, which means (according to the Constitution) they shall not favor a religion. Has nothing to do with Atheism, or 3%, or 100%, or .000001%, or the Christian Cross, or a Satanic Pentagram, or the Muslim Crescent.

Would you like me to explain why Atheism isn`t a religion? Maybe you can explain to me why you think my taxes should pay for your Christian Cross on the L.A. seal? Unless you`d rather explain your disdain for the U.S. Constitution? My guess is that you will pick none of the above and choose instead to spout some more of your not-very-well-thought-out ideas.

While you can probably point me to Fox News (the likely source of your regurgitated opinion), I`d be happy to point you to actual court decisions that back me up!

Also,




The fun part about this is if I were to sneak this into a bunch of illustrated bibles, put them in all in a vault and then wait till WW3 wipes out civilization, future Humans will definitely think Jesus had a pet dinosaur, and religions will be based entirely on the concept of Raptor Jesus. That`s why it`s entirely arbitrary. Why don`t you believe in Baal? Because you happened to be born today.

My point is, religion is arbitrary and can therefore spin out of control (and it has). Science has some form of self-control and at least some degree of absolute fact, which is why it`s preferable. Also, what good has religion brought to the world that any other organized effort couldn`t have done?

Hey NottaSpy, you can present all the facts you want. I`m talking about things like forcing, under threat of law suit, Los Angeles to change its official seal because it has a cross that covers less than 3% of the whole on it, acting like nuns being forced to watch gay porn every time there is a reference to belief in God in the schools and doing everything you can do to wipe out all acknowledgement of religion from the public square.

Yarrrpirate, you appear to have cited the Crusades, Muslim terrorists, and, in general, religious war as an argument against religion. Did you ever stop to consider what exactly war would be like without the influence of religion(and philosophies that resemble religions), especially common religions? If Europe hadn`t been settled down by a Christianity you can bet it would`ve been just as bad as the worst of the crusades, the Norman invasions (Not religiously motivated for the most part, but that`s part of my point), or most any other senseless, murdering, genocidal hell of which you can think. The same goes for most parts of the world. As much as you say that religion`s downfalls exceed its benefits, you don`t seem to really consider what a world without religion might have been.

yarrrpirate: 300 years of science may have helped, But it took a cold war with an atheist oriented communist Russia to push America to plant it`s flag on the moon. It was the biggest `First!` in the history of mankind and was not merely done in the name of science alone, It was a propaganda win that America still enjoys the spoils of today.

Again, kids: belief is not the same as religion. You can`t ban faith, as it happens on the inside of a person`s mind (sci-fi!). When people who take their faith to ridiculous and psychiatrically ill proportions gather, they form a cult. When they convince others to their cause either by persuasion, lies or violence (or all three *Gasp!*), they form a religion.

So, to sum up, faith != religion.

@ Selfluminous: I`m going to dodge your ad hominem and strawmen, just in time to question you referring to an article, when the post in question is actually a picture. Either you have mental associative issues, or the picture is part of an article, that you have failed to link to (maybe it`s in a previous comment?).

I say you are the one who is shallow, dropping such a heavy statement without explanation, making it meaningless. My point, had you interpreted my final sentence (after the 2 pictures) correctly (sorry if I was unclear!) is that while religion is nice and can have benefits, the bad overshadows the good, and a utilitarist says no no. It would be a cute and lovely thing to have if everyone could get along, but like a 5 year old with his dad`s shotgun, Humanity is just too dumb as a species to handle it.

@yarrrpirate: about the 2 pictures you used to describe religion and the other picture for atheism: your brain makes associations in such a shallow manner.

@ whoever said "Atheism is a belief if bald/black is a hair color": i have a better analogy "Atheism is a belief if atheists have ball(s) to admit that there is something they believe in" no offense, just a bit sarcastic.

For people who like the idea of religion as a penis, so what is it like to have no religion?

And finally, who else realizes that this article is actually making fun of atheists ?

I don`t visit this site all that often, but man, oh man can I see the trend of religious argument.

I always know when I see something that involves the old "religion vs. atheism vs. agnosticism vs. whatever" argument, there`s gonna be a [email protected]$$ debate in the comments...and yet it`s like I have this sick curiosity to know what`s being said. O_o...

As for me, I don`t really know what my beliefs are. Still rather confused. I`d like to believe there`s something beyond our current life experience, but I`m not really sure what. I do know that I don`t believe there`s an omnipotent man in the sky that makes things happen, though. However, at the same time, materialist atheism (the idea that there is nothing beyond the physical) is depressing to me. IMO it`s kind of like saying that life is meaningless (but it`s not nihilism). Like I said, it`s rather confusing for me... :-\

The difference, in this case, is that atheists don`t tend to cram their beliefs down other people`s throats.

Sure, you may go to youtube and look at a clip of Dawkins telling religious people that they are misguided.

Sure, you may go into a debate with an atheist, and he will surely call you misguided.

This is all true, but this is not the issue. These things are easily avoided. What isn`t so easily avoided is people standing in the corners, carrying signs telling you that you will go to hell if you don`t believe as they do. What isn`t so easy to avoid is people actually managing to have Intelligent Design presented as a scientific theory in schools.

On a related note, the main reason why atheism is not a religion is that it says absolutely NOTHING about how to live your life, or what morality is, or, in fact, answers any philosophical question. All it says is that there isn`t a god. Atheism isn`t a religion, it`s the opposite to religion.

@CrakrJak, the moon landing wasn`t done in the name of religion. Nor was any other scientific discovery or achievement. That`s key, right there. The only thing religion has been good for is showing science how things aren`t done.

@ Davymid. Ah, but I was just about to post that!




The only reason I didn`t, before, was because I was busy going to my university to study for my master`s degree in astronautics, which I am doing instead of beating my back with a whip, rocking back and forth in front of an inanimate wall or avoiding pork.

Tomorrow, I`ll learn about nuclear rocket propulsion and orbital mechanics instead of spending most of my Sunday listening to a tape recor... Uh, preacher blabbing about sci-fi fantasy.

The congress opens it`s days with a prayer from a revolving group of priests, pastors, reverends, rabbis, imams, etc... The president swears his oath of office on a bible and there are several references to God on many of America`s monuments.

"Atheism is a belief if bald is a hair color."

Actually the better analogy would be if "black" is a hair color. Because it isn`t technically a color (it is the absence of color), but acts in every way shape and form as if it is one.

This analogy works in many ways. Yours has too many disconnects. After all there are many types of atheistic worldviews, but only one bald. (Unless you include various levels of baldness, in which case they have hair color just the same).

for the most part the moral teachings of religion are what should be seen as common sense. surely we should know that treating others badly is wrong. stealing. murdering. are these things that relgious people would be doing if they didn`t have faith? i get that belief in a higher power brings comfort to a lot of people, i really do. i wish i could bring myself to that belief on occasion. but i can not. how about we have a little faith in our fellow human beings to do the right thing, not because they will get punished if they dont, but because they are good people. which i think, mostly, people are.

Atheists should be out telling religious folk that they are misguided and believing in false gods and profits.

Religous people should be out telling people they are sinning and will go to hell.

@genericuser - Maybe a few Christians follow these guidlines but certainly not most. Sorry it`s true. Look at how many americans object to gay marriage for religious reasons! Yet if you ask them for a legal reason why gays shouldn`t be able to marry they can`t give you one. Christians bring their religion into the public sphere all the time for a million different reasons and they always feel that their god justifies it!

Religion is something humanity created because they wanted answers to questions we don`t have and will NEVER have answers to. I think atheists are the smart ones here because they don`t let a book dictate what they can and cannot do and they don`t waste their time following a "god" that may or may not exist; only to have people tell them that they have to have "faith". Faith still doesn`t prove God is real. It`s just false hope.

just like to point flaw your argument, you say science is confined to the physical world so it can not undestand or disprove god because he exist out side this `box`. yet you later say that he exist both in out of the physical world, so if god does exist he must have some effect on the physical world and,if this as you say is the realm of science then surely science should detect this effect? Im unconvinced.

All ideas of god are all fair enough and interresting, but its no more real then european folk lore that talks of faeries living underhills! the only place god exists is in your head, although that can in its self be powerful, just look at any scipsothrenic patient. that always makes wonder why christians are considered @[email protected]

Isn`t it weird that when a person learns that his-her life is limited and the countdown to leaving this earth is a reality...they seem to get more religious. (From my witnessing anyways.) I feel lucky so far as i have 20 pills aday, oxygen machine that blows air into my lungs during sleep,oxygene bottles for when i leave the house, specialistes who i see here at home and some i have to meet at the hospital. My youngest is 11 and is now living with his father. Ya know what? I was born roman catholic put stopped attending mass in my teens. I had my 3 boys baptized and am now preparing my litte one for his first communion. What`s different for me now is that i study the bible...yep...thats new but if feel a need to understand things about my life and my savior. It ain`t a bad read ya know...and i go on the web if i need clarification about a passage. I pray every day now...and it helps me to keep focused on the good things in life and not all my medical problems. Yep....knowing death..hm

"Actually we`ve dis proven more bible bullshat than you guys have proven, sooooo. Yeah, your religion is false."

Actually, no. The most atheists have done is construct false versions of Christianity - strawman arguments - and then disprove their own fantasy.

You cannot disprove the existence of God for two reasons - one, God existences beyond the material, physical universe, and thus beyond science. Science is constrained by the "box" of physicality, God exists both within and outside of that constraint.

and two - science cannot know everything about every particle of the physical universe - most of the universe is forever so far away that light from its galaxies will never reach earth - you cannot ever know what is there.

Further, you cannot prove that the life experience of billions of human beings are wrong. You can only prove that you refuse to believe those people, and therefore, cannot ever be believed or trusted in return

@Yaezukara: God isn`t the name of God, but rather just what we call who/what you/anyone else believes in. Think of it this way, you only see God as "God" because you are shortsighted. In reality, the Christian "God", the Muslim "Allah", the Hindu "Mishra" can be all condensed under the same thing, the God of your religion, not "God" (by name) but rather God by belief status.

Therefore, if you believe in science, science is God (to you), not "God". On our money, and in the pledge, it refers to God as that which we believe in, not only the Christian "God". To put such would be unconstitutional, and to argue such a point is only redundant and hypocritical.

CrakrJak: And most would be sickened to see the US today. Yes, they did believe that everyone had the right to believe in god in their own way. They also believed that the government should be kept far, far away from any and all religious matters.

The Supreme Court`s word is law, yes. For now. In the future, with a more unbiased-towards-religion court, things will likely change. Like it or not, the government endorsing anything related to god is in fact unconstitutional. Even the tax exemptions for religious institutions are unconstitutional, though you`d be hard pressed to get the current SC to vote that way.

They are, by and large, religious men and women. And thus are predisposed to favor religion over non-religion.

Yaezakura: The Supreme Court has final say and says it`s constitutional, Thus it is. You can say it`s a `bad decision` in your opinion, But it`s not in fact `unconstitutional` because of your opinion. The founding fathers that wrote the constitution were religious men, They didn`t all believe the same way, But they did believe that we have all have the right to believe in God and that that right should not be taken away by the state.

CrakrJak: Just because the Supreme Court made a bad decision doesn`t make it right. Yes, the edited version of the Pledge (the original, written by a religious man no less, made no mention of god, and this was in fact not added until the 1950s), is unconstitutional. "Ceremonial Deism" is still advocating belief over non-belief. The same is true of the national motto "In God We Trust" on our currency.

The truth is, the Supreme Court is not impartial. In a perfect world they would be. But they are human, and have their own views. Most of them are highly religious.

CrakrJak, that`s not what he`s referring to and you know it. He explained what he`s referring to: the annoying bible thumping bastards on large college campuses and crowding busy downtowns screaming at people who are just trying to go about their day.

Furthermore, I do object to the pledge of allegiance for more than just the "god" reason, and haven`t said it in a good 7 years. It`s not illegal to have it in the pledge, but it sure is stupid.

Yaezakura: If your referring to having "Under God" in the Pledge of Allegiance, As shoving religion down kids throats. I`m afraid the Supreme Court disagrees, It recently decided that the phrases "under God" in the Pledge of Allegiance and "In God We Trust" on coins and currency are both constitutional.

#CrakrJak: There is a difference between small displays of your own faith that people are free to ignore, and trying to force religion on children through things like the public education system. There`s also a difference between a Jesus-fish bumper sticker and standing on a street corner with a bullhorn telling children they`ll burn in hell if they don`t follow what your specific branch of Christianity teaches.

It`s a damn shame that people think of religion like this. What If I want to wear my Salvation Army T-shirt ? What If I want to listen to my Christian rock in the park ? What if I want a Jesus fish on my car`s rear bumper ?

We have freedom OF religion in America, Not freedom FROM religion. Religious advertising is no different than any other, If you don`t like it change the channel or ignore it.
