Go to: Real debates about faith are drowned by the New Atheists' foghorn voices

daveau's Avatar Jump to comment 69 by daveau

I would wager quite a bit that more than 22% of atheists in the US know what Easter is about...


Yes, Easter is a mythologized celebration of the Vernal Equinox.

...there are only so many times you can argue that religion is a load of baloney.


Yes, that is true. In our limited lifetimes, we cannot begin to approach infinity.

Go to: Prints Show a Modern Foot in Prehuman

Go to: Obama creates faith-based office with wide mission

I don't care how secular the initiative is, I still don't want my tax money funneled through a religious organization. It only serves to legitimize them.

Go to: Atheist bus adverts could lead to watchdog ruling on God's existence

I've sought advice from some of our key people here, but I'm afraid all I've got out of them so far is peals of laughter.


I just love that line.

This could wind up being a very big deal no matter what is decided.
