A find it funny that Christain think it okay to force their religion down everyone throat but the minute that other people want their religion to also be teach in schools they throw a hiss fit, remove the bibles from class room and have their polilce about hand out religiom materal "review" like it this casehttp://paganwiccan.about.c om/b/2011/12/23/bibles-made-av ailable-at-nc-school.htm.
You CHristain can't have both if you want chirstain to be teach in public schools then you need to teach ALL religion, athies etc belives along with said religion creation myths.

Yet another point that has been refuted and you ignore.

You have to be a troll. There is no way that someone's mind could have deteriorated to the point where no facts were able to be absorbed.

First, you say atheism is a religion. Then you say it isn't. Then you want it taught with other religions??? I don't think you know what you want!

I, myself don't want religion taught in public schools! That goes against the 1st Amendment!!

obaviously you were thinking fast and typing in a hurry, but that was not entirely clear. if I am going to agree with you - as I might - I need to be clear about all the details of what you meant. not a criticism - I think fast and type fast and want to get on in a hurry too, especially if someone I want to converse with has commented recently.

OK..first, there is only ONE Bible. The others are religious books not Bible. And the politicians allow schools to teach such things that I wouldn't want my child to learn (I won't list them because they aren't worth the effort). Reading and learning the Bible helped found the United States of America. The principles learned from within the Bible are why so many came to live here; are why so many die trying to come here to live; are why we have "border" problems; and are how we have sustain this wonderful Nation in times of Depression and War. So, how can any of you say that it is not needed to be taught in the schools? Of course, it should be taught at home. But it obviously isn't enough because the country is continuing in a downward spiral to Hell. If we return to teaching the fundamentals (reading the Bible stories) in the classroom, parents may return to the basic principles of "Family" being the first thing on their priority lists -- not drugs, sex, rowdy times, etc. Families will learn to once again work together towards brighter tomorrows, educating their children to have brighter futures instead of accepting that they are stuck in low-income lifestyles, and learning that life is to be cherished -- not wasted by making mistakes just because you don't care about tomorrow.
We, as Americans, need to make a stand for Christianity and say that we want our children to learn about God at every opportunity! Vote that way at every opportunity regardless of who is friends with who at election time (or what party the candidate represents) and we just might have a Mighty Nation to pass on to our grandkids!

that was to Sam, and I think he was asking other people to be consistent - and telling them the proper consequences of equal rights for all subject matter in the schools (very long days, I would guess!)

santorum celebration? on the way to Michgan or Maine, maybe? I expect RP to do well in Maine - wouldn't that be fun! I think that we now can look forward to an eventual Romney Santorum ticket, with an agenda slightly to the left of the Pope and AKofI.

I think kids are born agnostic - not knowing. and also atheist in the sense of not believing. I do wonder what the first things in their minds are. I do not recall that much of my early thoughts or actions.

that was to 7th trump and I give in to the temptation to make short unfriendly replies now and then, but we should not make a habit of it, since we represent the cause of rationality, scientific method, and wisdom.

see above comment. This thread has become a place where the very simplistic views of the true believers has been answered by very substantial discussions by the non-believers, and it is a pity when you just dismiss the irrational ones with a quick insult - when it is obvious that you belong to the rational camp and could have many interesting things to write about. I am in a hurry today, but usually I like to meet new people who are rational thinkers and to see a sampling of their rational thought - not just their quick dismissals of the true believer types. please let us read more of your positive and substantive views, if you wish, that is. there are lots of interesting discussions on here - and it is much better than the big sites where there is little more than insult exchange.

In a sense, humans are half monkey. We have 98% the same DNA as chimpanzees. We have the same essential bone structure of apes. Only a few differences. Somewhat different pelvic shape. Larger brain case.
Those two things make for large changes in how we operate.
There are other minor differences. We have thinner hair and our facial features have changed a bit. Nothing to dramatic.
We have smaller jaws and jaw muscles. But no major changes.
Really, we are just talking about some size differences.
Our thumb and wrist bones have changed a little, because there is no longer a need to swing from trees.
We thus have more control of thumb to fingers.
Yes, we know it may sound degrading to you, being called half ape, but that is the fact. We are primates. The human primate.
that was to 7th trump, I think. I think we suffered a loss when it became a lot more difficult to swing from trees and vines. But there is always Cirque de Soleil - wouldn't it be wonderful if they could put on a performance for monkeys, chimps, and great apes, and get the audience reaction? I can just imagine their conversations and evaluations!
