Go to: Why the 'New Atheists' are Right-Wing on Foreign Policy

This whole thing does strike me as remarkably confused. Even though religion obviously doesn't account for the whole picture in Israel, it certainly is at the root of the problem. If the Jews had made just any old strip of land their refuge and sanctuary, we might not be thinking that religion is the problem. It's precisely because they made THIS strip of land theirs that's making us think God has something to do with it. Their entire justification for making this sliver of territory theirs is premised on the belief that it's given to them by God at the exclusion of everyone else. That's a religious claim, unlike simply, say, asserting "we were here first." Even if the Palestinians' religious proclivities are incidental to their outrage, it's almost certainly true that the Isrealis made this conflict religious by invoking some nonsense from their holy book to justify their present residence.

This kind of boring, basic Atheism 101 stuff has a place, I guess.

Go to: 'Atheist bus' more like a bandwagon on highway to hell

Wow. I didn't realize that people only take care of their children because of Jesus. I mean, without Jesus, we'd let our kids die, right? I guess all them other animals that take great pains to protect and nurture their offspring must have Jesus in their lives. Wow, man...Jesus.

It would be nice if academics as a whole, not just scientists, got a little noisier, if only to help soften the sound of cant ceaselessly gurgling up from the seemingly bottomless maw of religious megaphones here, there, and everywhere.

Hey Everyone!

I want you to all pray with me!

I ask God to grant the IRS the wisdom, fortitude, and strength to crush the seditious preachers in one swift, shock-'n'-awe-style blow. May there be lawfulness and taxes for all! Amen.
