<quoted text>Hypocrite seems so appropriate when you contradict what you say. Can you think of a better word? Sorry I do not have sentence long name calling tangents like yourself that have no actual application to the subject.
Common sense is a misnomer.
and for once, would you please supply a rational reference and reason,80 as to your benign OVER usage of the H word?

Thank you.

Watch these numbers change over the next 10 years.
Atheists are becoming more vocal and more active in our communities.
Like any minority group, we have to educate the public so that they don't fear what they don't understand.
Btw, MY answer to both of those questions would be "fundamental Christians."
There is no reason to believe things will change over the next 10 years. The study clearly shows that Americans are in total disagreement with what Atheism represents.
They are more disliked now than they were 30 years ago.

Every single study that has ever looked at the issue has revealed massive amounts of bigotry and prejudice against atheists in America. The most recent data shows that atheists are more distrusted and despised than any other minority and that an atheist is the least likely person that Americans would vote for in a presidential election. It's not just that atheists are disliked, though, but also that atheists seem to represent everything about modernity which Americans dislike or fear.

Lead researcher Penny Edgell said that she was surprised by this: "We thought that in the wake of 9/11, people would target Muslims. Frankly, we expected atheists to be a throwaway group." Nevertheless, the numbers are so extreme that she was led to conclude that they are "a glaring exception to the rule of increasing tolerance over the last 30 years." It's not that bigotry and discrimination against Muslims is appropriate, but at least it's not hard to understand where such attitudes would come from.

Every group except atheists is being shown much greater tolerance and acceptance than 30 years ago. "Our analysis shows that attitudes about atheists have not followed the same historical pattern as that for previously marginalized religious groups. It is possible that the increasing tolerance for religious diversity may have heightened awareness of religion itself as the basis for solidarity in American life and sharpened the boundary between believers and nonbelievers in our collective imagination."

Bill's opinion is a republican opinion. He patted Bush on the back for every move he made. He pushed the agenda for war in Iraq. He pushed the agenda for the patriot act.
At least Msnbc people complain Obama does not repeal it. Msnbc is liberal, but they don't cover for Obama on every move as fix did for Bush.
O'Rielly sounds even MORE logical to me now-especially since it looks like this opotus is determined to absolutely drain the givverment AND health care providers now as well.

I knows of a statue in Manhatten fo'sale...fo' the general public the opening bid is 10 mil. Fo'yo...1 mil.... Cause o' some of dem dare "speshull discounts" wink wink....

Thus, the national debt has increased by $6.1 trillion under Obama the largest increase to date under any president and a reflection in part of the deep recession early in his first term. The next-highest was the $4.9 trillion added to the debt during the eight-year presidency of George W. Bush.

If anyone is bliss to the definition of hypocrite, It's you.
If anyone is bliss to the correct application of words in a sentence; Again, It's you. Ignorance is indeed Bliss!

Speaking your delusion at it doesn't change it at all.

It's sad that you hate yourself so much.
Perhaps someday you will forgive yourself ...then you can dispense with your fantasy.

Clueless one...
It was your Catholic's, and their brand of exorcism that made "Holy" water... Jesus never needed Holy water to rid
people of demons!
Everything is made clean by blessing it...

<quoted text>Without imagination one would think like an animal. It is what separates us from other animals. With evidence and the ability to connect the dots(imagination) we would have zero technology.
We know the earth has been here for four and a half billion years. That is a great amount of time. We know through hard evidence life has been here for over three billion of those years. That is a great amount if time. We know with hard evidence species have come and gone many times in this span of time. Many if not all of the species are strikingly similar to others. They look to be related in close ways in a pattern that looks as if one species lead to the other.
Now your imagination may be hindered to connect the dots in this pattern. Likely due to indoctrination, from all appearances.
"Without imagination one would think like an animal"...
I thought acting like Animals was the root of your claims?
You cannot have it both ways!
Either your actions are controlled by your being an animal. or
it's your imaginations that prove you evil!
Oh wait! The Bible says a LOT about your vain Imaginations!
I'll go with that!

I was in a restaurant a couple months back and a family prayed over their meal.(I have no problem with that, btw.) Your post just got me to wondering - would the blessed bottles of Heinz 57(r) and Tabasco(r) left on the table then be defiled by Muslims and atheists who ate at that table later? How should the wait staff have properly disposed of it, then? Would it be considered a hazmat to Catholics, mummies and vampires?
I don't think it passes over to others...
Or... we'd bless all the food in the world, and not have to say it every time!
"have to say" not the proper term, as we Give thanks for ALL we have!
