The danger in teaching the Bible is that this book has the power to create faith even in an atheist. If it is allowed to be taught there is a strong possibility someone could be converted to Jesus Christ. Under the current world views is it possible to allow such a powerful tool for good to be taught in public schools and that before the young minds of the future?
the bible has no power at all. and it most certainly does not create faith in an atheist, you fail to understand what an atheist is. you are confusing it with the fact that children are born without faith or the ability to reason and question the authority of parents and teachers. they are not capable of rationally arguing for or against religion in any way. therefore they are prime targets for indoctrination, convince them that your version of religion is truth, and by the time they are old enough to question, they will be reluctant to accept anything else. an atheist has already dismissed such nonsense as religion and superstition, already found faith to be useless.you imply that atheists are simply without faith, we are without faith because we have already discarded it and found it to be worthless.

We know that an unbeliever does not attend a religious service out of curiosity.
It is very likely that the unbeliever is there looking for answers to the BS he /she has been fed by Atheists.
Possibly,the unbeliever has read the studies that have concluded that unbelievers have a higher rate of mental and emotional problems,are more likely to abuse drugs and alcohol and more likely to commit suicide.
Knowing that unbelief is the cause of those problems,they are probably looking to save their families from such a fate...
After all,if one really loves their family,you really want the best for them
we seem to be getting studies from very different sources, which ones are you reading, or was that what you heard in church, i would like to see these studies, please post them.

Am I "fretting?" No. That is you projecting since YOU would worry about YOUR child if they didn't follow your teachings.
I never influenced my son concerning religion.
Go to church or not.. it was up to him.
He never has attended church by his own choice.
He and his wife also choose not to have children so there will be no Christians coming from this family.

"Self serving?" Only stating facts, honey. You seem to be poorly informed so I thought I would share some facts with you.

Of course they do. I was raised Baptist but went to a Methodist and Lutheran church services with my besties when I was in high school.
Wanted to see what the difference might be. Curiosity.
Two years ago when I went to Italy, I attended a Catholic mass just to see what it was like. Catholics really know how to do rituals..much better than Protestants.
No matter who is preaching it...it's all BS.

Yes, I wanted my son to grow up thinking for himself.
He did. He came to his atheist conclusions all on his own.
I am very proud of him.

Anger over self defense...
What about this senseless act???

You won't recognize me. My name was Antonio West and I was the 13-month old child who was shot at point blank range by two teens who were attempting to rob my mother, who was also shot. A Grand Jury of my mommy's peers from Brunswick GA determined the teens who murdered me will not face the death penalty...too bad I was given a death sentence for being innocent and defenseless.

My family made the mistake of being white in a 73% non-white neighborhood, but my murder was not ruled a Hate Crime. Nor did President Obama take so much as a single moment to acknowledge my murder.

I am one of the youngest murder victims in our Nation's history, but the media doesn't care to cover the story of my tragic demise, President Obama has no children who could possibly look like me - so he doesn't care and the media doesn't care because my story is not interesting enough to bring them ratings so they can sell commercial time slots.

There is not a white equivalent of Al Sharpton because if there was he would be declared racist, so there is no one rushing to Brunswick GA to demand justice for me. There is no White Panther party to put a bounty on the lives of those who murdered me. I have no voice, I have no representation and unlike those who shot me in the face while I sat innocently in my stroller - I no longer have my life.

So while you are seeking justice for Trayvon, please remember to seek justice for me too. Tell your friends about me, tell you families, get tee shirts with my face on them and make the world pay attention, just like you did for Trayvon.

Thank you.

You think everyone needs to believe in a mythical sky daddy who is going to punish him/her if he/she doesn't behave? Ridiculous.
If Yahweh appeared tomorrow and said, "Hey, do whatever you want to do! No punishment ever!" are you going to go out to steal, rape, and pillage?
If so, you were never a moral person to begin with.
Ethics and morals come from being able to empathize with others.
To treat others the way you want to be treated.
No religion is necessary for that.
The most ethical people I know are atheists.
They know that they are responsible for their actions.
They don't get to simply apologize to Yahweh and get "forgiven."
Wrong!

See the stark difference?
And your claim about 95% of dating methods pointing to a young earth is a compete lie. I thought lying was considered a sin to you? Maybe you think it is the truth, so that is your loophole.
Who says it's a complete lie???
You, or the People that told you it was a lie???

The most ethical people I know are just that-ethical, with some morals and integrity enough to walk the walk (not just fake and phony speak of them) as well, and are tolerant of OTHERS and their DIFFERENT beliefs (providing they are not harming others) in a world full of imperfections-those that can exist in better ways, with out having to go around HATING on ANYthing (INcluding BOOKS that others might like to read-and that others read FAR differently) as well--as in NO labelDUHMlabel required-just PEOPLE as they are...not as they merely WISH (UNrealistically) people were.

And those that can accept sincere apologies-are truly the blessed ones...because HATRED is TOXIC.

Why do idiots answer rational questions with stupid questions--because it is too difficult for them to actually have to think, and form rational answers to rational questions?

Made ya actually think huh.

<quoted text>Do you believe the tower of Babble story? Do you believe different languages are due to god causing confusion among the people as this story claims?
This whole concept makes no sense to me. Now it sounds like you think god is magically making some speak in tongues to lower the confusion.
First, why would god intentionally try to make the people confused?
Looking at any map of differing religious populations we can see the language barrier could be a large reason for the differing religions. Thus if god wanted all to be of one religion, it defies logic to think he would put in place any road blocks to this goal.
That's all rational, until anyone inserts the reality of that "free will" stuff...hense IRRATIONALITY.
(so ummm seems like mankind over milleniums hasn't always follered just one pattern of thought now doesn't it. WHOA! Imagine that. Who'd've thought it!

Oh but that would mean a nation having to look at crime REALISTICALLY, rather than racially and politically twisted and baited by LOSERS, that could even begin to "overlook" such a vile, heinous of such contempt!
