"Well evolution for starters. As a species our DNA wants to replicate itself and pass itself down to offspring. How does homosexuality help accomplish that goal?"

right, have you ever considered that homosexuality might just be a facet of nature you don't like? Have you ever considered that maybe its becoming more prevalent as our populations grow unchecked? Also, if you quit offering oral sex to strange men in bathrooms, you might have less homosexuality shoved down your throat. the lights are on, but the closet door is shut.

Lack of belief is not a belief. It doesn't matter how many times anyone says that lack of belief is a belief, it won`t become true.

The theory of "god" cannot be disproven, or disproven, until there is factual scientific evidence one way or the other, which is impossible given the superpowers this supreme being is capable of. This argument will go on forever, can we quit talking about it outside of church? Anyway, if there was solid evidence that god didnt exist, it would not be a belief, but the fact remains that the only guarantee in life is that you exist, everything else could, conceivably, be a figment of your imagination, i choose to believe that what i see is real, but cannot stretch my mind to believe in the immaterial, i mean, your parents lied about santa, and the easter bunny, too. Are these that much more ridiculous than an omniscient "space ghost?" still, i will never try to take religion from someone else. Religion makes people happy, gives t

The essence of religion is also a lack of belief.


What reason do you have to say that? The essence of religion is accepting things as true without evidence, i.e. belief. Faith.

Athiesm is a belief in the same way that not playing sport is a sport. I`m not writing a book - does that mean I`m an author? I`m not an acrobat - does that mean I`m an acrobat? I`m not an elephant - does that mean I`m an elephant?

It`s a silly idea.

Mainly for anyone who thinks Heureux has a point:

Before making a serious decision, do you consult an augurer to determine the will of the gods from omens such as the direction of flight of some birds?

Do you sacrifice to Neptune in thanks for a safe journey by sea? Or to Juno Moneta for prosperity?

If not, why not? A significant proportion of the world's population believed in those things (and many others), so according to Heureux`s central line of argument about religion and science those things are as real and true as vaccines, antibiotics, the computer you`re using right now and all the innumerable other results of science that hugely improve our lives.

So if you agree with him, why don`t you do them? Them and the millions of others things people have believed in for the multitude of religions that exist or have existed.

"Atheism is not necessarily a belief. The essence of atheism is *lack* of belief."

The essence of religion is also a lack of belief. The essence of atheism is a belief.
