Go to: What's wrong with human extinction?

Would the human exinction even change anything? I doubt that, since such a significant change would leave a major ecological niche wide open, causing any monkey anywhere in the world to evolve in the direction of human beings (vivid description for better understanding). The question is, whether those post-human intelligent life forms would learn from the mistakes made or take a similar path to the one the human race takes now. They'd surely (as soon as they could decrypt our books) learn from our scientific advances, which would leave them with a blind faith in everything they'd read in a book, cuasing them to believe in god, who doesn't allow other gods and other gods who claim to exist, which would for sure make their poor heads explode, creating harm that outweighs the good, that is done by saving the animals from ourselves (best to be read in a hysterical voice, emphasizing the irony that is created by moving the focus from general past very special to straight up absurd claims)

oh, it's dripping with irony. I love the part where the christian woman struggles for clever arguments. I guess that was from line 1 to the end

Everything you say on their show can and will be used against you. Or in other words: You call - they cut you off - you will have to listen to them talking about you being an ignorant sinner and how you are the perfect proof of their theories

As sad as it is

Go to: How do I define my religious beliefs when asked?

(R)evolutionist's Avatar Jump to comment 37 by (R)evolutionist

I fail to see why anyone would brand the term atheist as being negative. There are an infinite number of things one could postulate for which there is no evidence that require one to reject them but that position carries no negative connotation.

Well it's actually a fact that there are lots of people, espacially religious ones who have negative associations with the term atheist, such as them being not morally trustworthy, up to the point of being compared to hitler or stalin. The question that OP should be asking is: "Is talking to people who will not accept me as a non-believer worth the time it takes?" And in my opinion the answer must be no. I don't think that I personally could have a respectful conversation with someone who blames me for the evil in the world and expects, I'll be going to hell as soon as I die.

Of course I find myself greatly amused by such comedy, too. My question would rather be wether it can be used to spread scientific thoughts or if its doing more harm than good.
