Go to: Nonbelievers flex their political muscles

I'd love to see this take off, but it'll likely get dismissed as more stridency and "oppression" of religious practice.

I'm really getting sick of the atheism "stridency" and "oppression" crap. It's like getting mad at the picked-on kid for finally standing up to the bully.

(That second sentence may sound kind of tacked-on, but I just thought of the analogy today and couldn't wait to use it :P )

Oh wow. I grew up only a couple towns over from Putnam. I'll have to go back to Glimpse of Gaia and order something... for someone...

I've been hugely into music since my early teens. And even though I was atheist before hearing them, Bad Religion has been very helpful with my being comfortable about it.

This is from their newest album "The Dissent of Man":

Go to: Do kids have to be taught about the supernatural?

I wonder, could a specific religion (i.e. Chrisianity) have ironically altered the results? What if, instead of "Princess Alice", they had a guy dressed as a preacher claiming to be able to watch them... via Jesus or something... If the test was performed here in the U.S. it's likely the majority of the children are probably Christian. It causes me to wonder if it was the lovely condescention of Chistianity to cause the kids to brush Princess Alice off as nonsense because it isn't their specific brand of nonsense and therefore didn't take it seriously.

... intended to help the young know the truth of things, or, more accurately, the truth as Richard Dawkins understands it.

So, religious zealots are against moral relativism, but they're for factual relativism?
