From the actions of some on here-they have absolutely NO regard OR respect for the beliefs of others, and THAT IGNORANCE is NO excuse either-NO matter the race, CREED or color.<quoted text>
You do know that Thomas Jefferson cut out all the magic from the Bible and pasted the remaining bits into his own version, the Jeffersonian Bible...right? I'm not saying the man was an atheist but please don't make the ignorant mistake of saying he was anything at all like a Christian in the sense that you understand it.
He rejected the divinity of Jesus, for pete's sake.
Also, since when did atheism have anything to do with rejection of ethics? Did I miss that memo? From my reading and study on this topic it seems that atheists are very concerned with ethical questions and spend a metric f*ckton of time talking about it.
All I ever hear from Fundies is that atheists are Satanic and "god did it".
(and anyone that's read any US history realizes what a grand plantation lord Jefferson was as well. SO there.)
