Go to: Civilian Pastor Attacks Atheist Soldier - Reverend Bryan Griem Claims Atheist Solders Are "Big Fat Chickens"

I love the fact that many believers are totally oblivious to the hypocrisy of claiming the existence of a being - God/Gods - who's life has meaning intrinsically, but then saying that our meaning in life must come from outside ourselves - from God/the Gods. Why can't our meaning be intrinsic as well?

Go to: Science and cinema

House is an asshole. He's a science-type-guy. Sheldon Cooper on The Big Bang Theory is also portrayed as a jerk. But every kind of authority figure gets their negative portrayal in cinema - and that includes clergymen as well (the Dan Brown movies). I think most humans are ambivalent towards (perceived) authority. Although, there's probably more films showing religious fellows in a positive light then scientists.

Yes, context does matter, but money and country pledges - which should take into account ALL Americans, including secular ones - are not the appropriate contexts. As much as it may disturb obstinate believers, superficially, a secular government is the same as a government ran by atheists/agnostics.

Look at it this way: we're all gonna die when the universe probably rips itself apart anyway.
