Go to: What Would the World Look Like if the New Atheists Won the Day?

critica's Avatar Jump to comment 6 by critica

Not all religions preach violence, but all religions preach a respect for faith. Faith is belief without evidence. When you believe things without evidence there is no way to check the validity of what you believe, and if believing without evidence is respected then there is no way to condemn those who do morally repugnant things in the name of their faith. Faith provides no mechanism for moral decision-making, for self-examination, for discerning what is true. That is why it is dangerous.

Well, said, Cartomancer..

Moreover, the jettisoning of the requirement that your ideas be supported by rational argument means you are free to behave as you wish using only faith as justification - and perfect justification at that.

Christ, once again. My rights to discriminate against others are being discriminated against. Boo bloody hoo. Grow up.

Go to: [UPDATE] Legislation to repeal Louisiana Creationism Law

'Cavemen' indeed. They would take us screaming back to the stone age, wailing to their mad gods while we degenerate into a species befuddled by mysticism, distrusting our own minds. Enemies of reason and of civilisation.

Go to: Evangelicals' free school would include creationism on science curriculum

"if creation is true, then man is a fallen creature and we need a saviour. If evolution is true then man is an evolving creature and we don't need any saviour".

brilliantly said.... why would anyone prefer the former?
