Science and politics would be great if they would get their noses out of religion.

But it does remind me that I live in a country full of ignorant, backwards thinking, morons who whole heartedly believe in two thousand year old fairy tales. We are the special ed class of the world.

Right, you'd be much better off living among forward-thinking progressive geniuses who believe you can work 30 hours a week for 40 weeks a year and retire at 50 with full pay and free health care for the rest of your life, and somehow somebody else is going to pay for all that, and if they don't you'll take to the streets and smash store windows, burn cars, and attack cops with sticks (go ahead, it's not like they'll shoot you for that).

So why are you still here?

As for abolishing government schools (free education for all being a founding principle of the country, by the way) all that would do would make education available only to those who could pay for it. Bravo! True colors right there.

Typical ignorant response from someone who gets all his information from biased liberal outlets. Conservatives do not want to end FUNDING for education; they want to give the money to parents so they can choose their kids' schools. If you want to send your kid to a unionized liberal indoctrination center, go right ahead. I honestly don't give a dry fap. YOU'RE the one who wants everybody's kids to be force-fed left-wing propaganda like global warming bull$#!+, the wonders of centrally planned utopian socialist wealth redistribution, not to mention crap like this:

How about a little thing like when I travel to Europe and when someone finds out I'm American I get that look. The one that says oh you're one of those morons.


Oh my God! An arrogant, smug, condescending European prick gave you "that look?" I'm SO, so sorry! Honestly, I had no idea! You must have been absolutely DEVASTATED! How did you manage not to slit your own throat and throw yourself off of a tall building?

I can't even begin to imagine how terrible that must have made you feel. Please accept my sincerest condolences.

I have a serious question and I am not being condescending. Try to be objective. If you had lived your whole life till now and had never heard of God or Jesus or the Bible, and someone came up to you and started telling you things from the bible like dinosaurs and people lived together, or the world was created in 6 days, or 2 of every animal lived on a boat for a month, wouldn't you think they were crazy?

"also the big bang and god are both creation theories"

Absolutely. Can't argue that. Here is the difference. One is a theory supported by mountains of scientific data and believed by almost all people who devote their lives to the study of the universe and actually understand things. The second is supported solely by an ancient book of tribal fairy tales like people living in whales and being strong because their hair is long.

"only 15% of the people questioned believe in evolution w/o God's influence" OK. so your point is that only 15% of americans understand evolutionary science while the rest say that God did it. That shocks you? When primitive people needed an answer to questions they couldn't answer they made up a god to answer them. If you show a camera to a tribe living in the amazon they think it is sorcery stealing your soul.

We aren't as primitive anymore, but I think people still hold onto those ideas because the alternative is too scary. People want to believe they go to heaven when they die and they want to believe someone has a plan for us. They want to think that there is a reason for everything. I get that. But wishing doesn't make it so.

dirtysteve00, to be sure, at least speaking for myself as a bastard, obnoxious atheist, I'm having a go at anyone who votes for discriminatory laws based on their religion, and, too, those who vote, based on their religion, what to teach in secular public schools, especially when that teaching is dictated, by law to be taught as scientific truth, and, too, where, sometimes, the law literally PREVENTS evolution and other actual science from being taught or even discussed (I won't go into sourcing the sordid history of this topic as it's so widely known that movies have been made about it).

I don't know that anyone is having a go at all Christians so much as they are at believers in the literal word.

Except for the inconvenient fact that back when the USA led the world in science, we were MORE, not less religious, so your explanation cannot possibly be correct.

There is a reason that the majority of Atheists are of above average intelligence.

"Once again, atheists calling Christians 'nuts' on IAB, wow I'm really shocked and surprised...
Being a rabid atheist doesn't make you smarter, it makes you an egotistical condescending prick."

No, it does make us smarter. We were able to see through the brainwashing and move past it. The whole religious story is absurd and ridiculous. I mean seriously. A floating invisible sky wizard who magically created everything and grants wishes? Seriously? And we aren't supposed to feel superior to folks who believe that? As I said to ollie, for a person to believe something as ludicrous as that, they either have to be dumb as a post or terribly brainwashed. There is really no other option. The worst part is, you guys believe this crap with zero proof. You only believe it because your parents (who told you about Santa) and the guy in the church (who collects money from you)told you it was true.

I would say that being a rabid anything makes one a condescending prick. The difference is that rabid atheists can only be annoying by saying stuff and posting on the Internet. As you rightly point out, we're far too few to affect legislation, and, other than overturning religious nuttery, I would hope that we prick atheists wouldn't want to affect legislation. My ONLY problem with the religious is that right there. If religious folk would just keep their drating beliefs out of my government and off of MY life, they can live their's however they want, IMHO--and furthermore, I'd actually support them! The problem with religious folk is the writing of legislation to govern ALL of us. Atheists are only a bunch of annoying pricks (and I surely can't imagine why, having their bedrooms invaded by the morality policy, etc.). Which group's worse, CrakrJack?

More religious? Yes. More religion in our laws and legislation and in our schools? NO! Not even close! That's the drating problem. When did "In God We Trust" get put on our money? When did "Under God" get put into our pledge of allegiance? We may have been more religious as a population, but not in our schools or laws or as a government. And *that* is the problem. Nut job whackos trying to shove their whack job beliefs down EVERYONE's throats. If they'd just live and believe what they want, send their kids to PRIVATE schools, like you suggest, and not try to pass laws affecting everyone, I'd support them 100%.
