@xCYBERDYNEx: He WOULDN`T be tolerated in any other country besides the US. Tolerated and allowed are different things. We have free speech here in Norway to, but notting remotely close to a O`Reilly

Your wiki segment is irrelevant, Hitler strongly professed a belief in a divine creator.

I thought it was Bill`s job to prove Christians are idiots. Since he clearly knows nothing about how anything works.

Yep, the freedom to speak your mind is absolutely horrible. First world problems I guess.

6th person "NO ONE WILL EVER LISTEN STOP ARGUING ALREADY"
No, because no one will ever listen, the arguments won`t stop. If even one side actually listens, there would be no conflict at all.

Bill O`Reilly is such a dumb drat. I loved when he said "my hypothesis is...", because hypothesis and the scientific method is taught in just about every science textbook. ever. looks like someone has read you know what.... hah

Oh MAN!! Why is Bill O still ALIVE?! The man is awful. Its not even that he`s too stupid to live - he is patently not stupid. He is ignorant, bigoted and dangerous.

I hate it when Theists play the `Hitler (or other evil dictator) was an Atheist, so that makes ALL ATHEISTS EVIL` card. It`s ridiculous. Bill O`reilly is a twat.

"You may require orders that you perceive to be divine in order to not be a drug addict, but it is not true that everyone shares your weakness in that thing.

But that`s much better than theists who argue that religion is a constraining influence and that is a good thing. They are disturbing because their argument (if they believe it themselves, which I doubt) rather strongly implies that they want to harm other people. If they didn`t, why would they consider their religion to be the thing that stops them doing so?"

Well said.

imo they are both basically trolls that want attention, though o`reilly is certainly the bigger and less intelligent one. Also O`reilly screaming "HA!" at 0:58 is hilarious.

2nd person: "Bullpoo, everything was made by a super powerful explosion that popped out of nothing!"

3rd person: "Well, Hitler was Religious!"

4th person: "Well, Stalin was Atheist!"

Lets teach both sides objectively and let people decide for themselves instead of trying to force our own truths upon them.

And for the record, I am Christian, but I don`t expect you to be.

Anyway, I`ve tried to read one of Dawkins` books against religion. It was so bad I couldn`t, but I did read most of it! He`s as big an ass as O`Reilly.

I don`t understand what his "logical connection" is between believing in God and doing evil things.

Hitler was a Roman Catholic. Let`s not pretend there`s never been evil or violence associated with Judeo-Christian reglions.

Anyway, can we stop posting O`Reilly interviews? It`s pointless. Extreme right thinks "haha O`Reilly`s great and so smrt", extreme left thinks "haha, look at how stupid ALL conservatives are", and the rest of us realize that it is just one sad old man, willing to spew a bunch of bs the he knows is bs just to make a lot of money.

O`Reilly isn`t dumb. He`s a damn evil genius who knows how to exploit television to live the life of fame and wealth we can only dream of. So what if he fools the dumber half of America into thinking his show has intellectual merit? Have you seen his ratings?! This guy is good.

[quote]Enough with Stalin people. He wasn`t atheist FFS. He attended christian seminary as a child, and never during his lifetime he negated orthodoxy.[/quote]
In my childhood I attended Catholic mass and Catholic school, and have never officially excommunicated myself from the Catholic church, but I am an atheist.
Stalin was also an atheist. Let`s not pretend.

OTOH Hitler often proclaimed his Christian beliefs, several times in Mein Kampf for example.

I don`t know why Dawkins bothered to go on. There`s absolutely no point trying to reason with someone who clearly lacks a school-level understanding of physics, chemistry or biology.

It`s like let`s pretend he killed all those people in atheism name... Are you serious? Ok then, how about JFK who started Vietnam war that killed 9 million civilians? Did he started that war in Christ`s name `cos he was a catolic?
@liberkaos- Breivik was also a Freemason,and they consider themselves to be a elite, so go figure... As far as i know in order to become one of them, you must believe in divineeeeeeee creation (or Architect) ;-/

Wars mainly in the name of Jesus and God? Crusades, Spanish Inquisition, Thirty Years` War (to name the majors).
Wars mainly in the name of Atheism? Stalin and possibly Napoleon, because they wanted no idols greater then themselves.

If your Atheist, why would you fight in the name of it? There is nobody to impress to get you anywhere in death, because there is no heaven to you. Plus you would need to kill at least 85% of the earths popuation to end all relgion... it would be a fools goal.

I don`t care if your relgious btw, just don`t like hearing when people say Atheism promotes violence.

Dawkins has some nerves of steel... or he simply doesn`t give a f*ck what this retard and the likes of him think. Somehow, this reminds me of previous post. You fear and condemn what you don`t understand. That same christian church was holding to Ptolemy`s theory (Ptolomey is more accurate) that Earth is the center of the universe for 1.500 years. Not to mention crusades, inquisition, pedophilia... Judeo-christianism was the cancer for human spirit in the medieval time, as much as rughead islamic mullas are today. We are not all geniuses, we can`t all understand the theory of strings, or multiverses, or black hole stuff, but some elementary knowledge is required in order to catch the theory of evolution. And even today, modern biology questions Darwin`s postulates, changing them and finding a new sense in them. Science is not a big mystery, and to someo

Ok, fun fact: The slaughter 22. july, Breivik was a devaut Christian.

Look, it`s not about religion or atheism, it`s still the same pooty people with power and no morals. It`s not religion or atheism that`s evil. PEOPLE are evil, and I refuse to belive religion has stopped anyone intent on murdering people because he read a commandment.. or refused to belive in any supernatural events. They still kill, and commit atrocities.

I have actually never felt my religion to be constraining although it does govern almost everything I do. But if you really think about it because I have followed my religion I am more free then those who just do what ever they want. For example I don`t use any drugs(that includes alcohol) A lot of people would view that as a constraint, but that is false. I am more free because of it I have more financial freedom because i don`t squander my money and I am free from any addiction most people have form drugs. It is interesting to look back into my family history because a few generations back when my family was not religious, they were know for being alcoholics. Because of religion I am free of that vice.

Why would you bring an extremely intelligent atheist, who knows more about your religion and it`s origin than you do, onto you`re show just to embarrass yourself by blurting out things you have no knowledge of, and watch the information you spew out immediately be proven wrong? I feel embarrassed for Bill O`Reilly.

Religion is a constraining influence on humanity... 100% true. Cutting peoples hands off is a constaining influence on masurbation. See my point?

Religious spokespersons keep backing off into the corner and picking even more ridiculous arguements to back their case. I would rather this guy was quoting scripture and denying blatant facts than trying to argue that religions best attribute is preventing people from doing dumb poo like killing other people. The very fact that if religion dissapeared tomorrow 90% of human caused human deaths would stop should be enough reason for any bright child to realise the harm that religion has caused to the human race. 500 years ago the idea of a sky man watching you might have stopped you from killing a person you met on an empty road and taking their belongings, we have police and DNA evidence now religion is defunct in that regard.

O`Reilly is an idiot. I can`t believe people watch his show. Pompous & obnoxious. To be a well balanced person you must believe that whatever you think MAY BE WRONG, and he does not poses that quality. I wouldn`t want him arguing any point for me, as someone who believes in divine creation. However, I think the truth may be somewhere between those 2. I believe the more advanced we become in math and science, the closer we are to finding the truths of our origins.

Cola If you count all the people people Stalin killed it would be over 20,000,000. And yes that was in the name of atheism many of those people he killed was cultural cleansing of Christians, because Christians were more likely to reject him as a leader.

Actually Hitler was not a Christian he rejected that is that like calling Judas Iscariot a Christian because he was one of Christ apostles before he betrayed Christ. Just because he started as one does not make him a Christian. Believe it or not Adolf Hitler in private was hostile to Christianity and had a plan to destroy it after the war.
