It's not the same thing then-you'll have to apply that into the "altered state due to outside interference" category.

You been watching some old cowboy and indian movies, where the cowboy kid was raised by indians for awhile-goes back out into the whiteman's world a few years, returns back to the reservation for a visit and partakes of one of them there tribal traditions of zonking out to peyoteland and calling it a "spiritual experience", or something?

Mm nope, not the same thing.

<quoted text>So you are also against evolution in schools? Then my last sentence was not out of place after all.
No wonder you see religion as harmless, as you are one of those trying to harm education. Harming education is harming others in my opinion.
I argue with the root of problems, and in this case it is religion. Don't like it? To bad, I don't like your guys fight against evolution teaching in schools. I don't like your fight against homosexual equality. I don't like a whole lot of things you guys do in the name of your faith.
You see, you and I have a different view of what is civilized. I see civilized as allowing for more equality, not less. I see civilized as teaching what science finds. Evolution is what science has found.
I see treating homosexuals as evil is animalistic.
I think you're confusing Science, with sociology, and you may have some priority deficiencies, DUDE.

Schools are for academic LEARNING first. I have NO problem with biology, physics, chemistry etc. being taught. That is how it should, and what should be taught in secular Science classroom-as Science classroom are NOT meant to be implemented as out of control barroom brawling/gambling/salacious outlet type atmospheres either.

I see "civilized" as minding ones manners, treating ALL others with humane respect, including the many different beliefs of the same, and that includes NOT trying to hatefully demean, twist and distort the dignity of ANYone not bothering anyone else...not just SOME.

AND let me say while I am at-on your "equality" remark; I do NOT believe in extreme socialism either, Especially some sort of warped entitleMENTAL, warpedly self-exaulted czarish, commietic type socialism--personally finding that it quickly DEGRADES whole societies to dysfunctional and apathetic levels.
Example-
If a whole "equalized" class takes a math test in a more MERIT based environment, each individuals efforts (or LACK thereof) are awarded accordingly, fairly and justly, based upon the grade they've rightfully EARNED.
Cheaters are disqualified automatically-Shame on Them--because they would NOT have actually earned such based upon their own merits to start with. Anyway...

Let's say you have studied long and hard and put the actual work into preparing for such a test, all on your own...and maybe there's a few others in your classroom that have as well, but only a couple/few more. The rest vary--some have applied SOME effort, some have done almost nothing that required any real effort at all.
The test is distributed, and the grades range from let's say a 98 percent, to a 40 percent, median being around an 80...and the test giver decides just because they don't like the range of the grades, they're going to just go ahead and shave off a few points of the higher scoring test takers, and give it to the slackers.

So let's just say for further example (since you have claimed to study for years)...

You scored a 98...I'll be the test giver....and I'm taking 18 points OFF your grade and giving it to a couple of the 40 percenter slcakertics that put absolutely NO effort into earning ANY of it.

Now think about that a minute or two..and then tell me...

How well do YOU like how that makes YOU feel?

<quoted text>Yes, I agree it is usually in the eye of the reader and not a single thing to do with a holy ghost. Thanks for making my point.
Your point varies slightly from Mine.

MY point was, the reading is in the eye of the beholder AND I also believe THAT anyone's frame of mind while reading ALSO has a lot to do with how we interpret things...and SOME no doubt, DO read with "holier" minds than others, while others read from "holier than thou" attitudes lol.

Will you PLEASE learn to stick with speaking for ONLY yourself, and NOT twisting OTHERS opinions to suit just your own- for trees sake?

In fact the whole point of the list posted was to defend atheism, not indict religion. In case you have been missing the latest round of arguments, Curious has been on a mission to indict atheism as bad.
Personal preferences and opinions-easily duhmed down by the lump and labelduhmness,collectively label it all DUH same probably resulting from the toxic plague of ignorance, and stubborness of merely mortal humans.

I have found no stats that show believers are criminals or bad people any more so than atheists or vice versa. That is the point.
Exactly.

Yiagio can tell you about that.
He has confessed to ingesting bad liquor while watching movies with his friends.
And yes,,,,Birds evolved from dinosaurs;
It's fashionable today to claim that birds evolved from dinosaurs, although again, there is little agreement on which dinosaur lineage was ancestral to birds. The claim persists in spite of the fact that birds and dinosaurs differ markedly. Legs must become wings and scales must become feathers. Dinosaurs had solid bones, yet bird bones are hollow. Reptilian dinosaurs were likely cold blooded while birds are warm blooded with an extremely high metabolism. Dinosaurs had lungs similar to mammals, while the bird's breathing scheme is totally different. At least dinosaur eggs were similar to birds eggs
Any birdbrain can attest to that inane opinion
Necessity is the mother of invention and there are those who need to invent the unbelievable in order to justify the ludicrous
"Necessity is the mother of invention and there are those who need to invent the unbelievable in order to justify the ludicrous"

And THOSE types, are the ones that are seriously OFF in the heads, no matter the race, creed or whatever!!!

Sure. I'm being hyperbolic, to some degree. Of course some people include religious elements in their Christmas celebrations. But I don't, and virtually all of the commercial Christmas stuff leaves it out.
My point is that the holiday is owned by everyone in Western culture. It is not limited to Christians and doesn't have anything to do with Christ for all practical purposes.
That's how these things evolve. We still call Thursday by a name that honors a god nobody believes in anymore.
Yeah, it gets pretty disgusting watching some of the druids on their quests of stomp, pillage and plunder in the stores at Christmas time.

But I for one, still enjoy seeing a nice, NON gaudy manger scene along with the SOME rest of the oh so commercialized, over hyped, over priced displays of materialism.:-).

According to Genesis, god doesn't really create the things that make light until after he makes light. And of course the order is different depending on if you're going with creation myth 1 or creation myth 2, both of which are in Genesis.
The Bible is no more scientifically accurate than a first grader's drawings of giant robots fighting sharks.
Well that's just kind of logical..when you think about the order of evolutionary advancement.

I would say... Everest was under water, and only grew after the waters subsided, all the smaller critters drowned quickly, and mankind fought hard to survive, climbing trees, hills, grabbed boats, and logs, and maybe floated for days!
We've found ruins, with dead peoples bones scattered all over, and artifacts found in coal layers dated by shady means to say they're older than they are!
Genesis 6 is the story of Noah... read it!
We are far worse today... we all deserve punishment!

Yes, so does that mean islands are "countries", or just "territories"?

I disagree, because Statistics are more often based on gathered FACTS, rather than "popular polling choices" of mere opinion.

There is a HUGE difference, ESPECIALLY in areas like SCIENCE.

Seriously, I don't think "religion" of any type should be taught in the public schools, for one thing it opens the dangerous door to Islam insisting they also teach the Koran! No, I think school should be for teaching "the 3R's" and all face/religion should be taught at home, in church services, or standing naked on a mountaintop with your friends to greet the sunrise which God hath made! Weather permitting, of course [grins]
