Go to: Atheist wins "The American Bible Challenge"

Floyd's Avatar Jump to comment 4 by Floyd

Matt Dillahunty from The Atheist Experience in Austin, Texas would be perfect for this if he wanted to do it. Someone ask him, I'm too lazy.

Go to: So what's the goal with theism?

Floyd's Avatar Jump to comment 15 by Floyd

I had to laugh when OP mentioned prisons and mental hospitals for theists! Nobody is suggesting anything like that. I disagree with those who say religion will never disppear. I'm optimistic that eventually it will. Given everything we now know about our world and the cosmos, there simply isn't any reason to believe in Gods. Aided by the power of global communication and knowledge-sharing, the end of faith seems inevitable. As an analogy, I was watching "Guess who's coming to dinnner?" on TV the other day and it was amazing that only 45 years ago a mixed-race marriage was seen as shocking. Progress can be made quicker than you think.

                 Isn't it required any more that a journalist does some research before writing about a subject? Like reading his most famous book? It isn't rocket science, eh?And confusing Julian and Aldous Huxley, even I wouldn't do that and I learnt English on my own.          

I'm assuming you're being funny.

The media is stupid and journalism is dead.

Go to: Jon Stewart Rips Fox News Christians For Comparing Obama Birth Control Mandate To Nazi Germany (VIDEO)

                 And this is from a few days ago, the house Democrats have walked out of the congressional hearings since then as the "first witnesses" were all male! (apologies for not getting US terms correct)How tough is it to be a simple fiscal conservative in the US when your rest of the party likes the company of  crazies, gay and women haters! What happened to the party of freedoms?

I know exactly how you feel Alaskansee, and I'm not even American. The tragic truth is that the Republican party has warped into the Christian party, so everything is clouded by religion. Christians can't help themselves from sticking their moral beaks into everyone else's business. I guess Ron Paul is your only hope. (yes I know he is a Christian too, but he absolutely will not let his religious beliefs influence his policy).
