Naaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa aaah , I drag out atheists for their incoherent beliefs, for the maladies their faith encumbers upon their members and their subscribing to magical miracles.
ABIOGENESIS
: the supposed spontaneous origination of living organisms directly from lifeless matter
Which is totally unsupported by any scientific evidence A magical miracle
Maybe you should start your own thread, as these have nothing to do with bible study in schools.

I would love to know what science supports your creationism? Does science support the claim of Adam and Eve? Does science support the claim of god creating all life and kinds? Does science support the claim of a six day creation? Does science support the idea of a global flood killing all humans and animals?
Of course science does not. Science would call these claims, magical miracles that clearly are myth.

<quoted text>Thanks for pointing that out. I obviously though you wrote this for some reason. So it did not make sense that you would claim religion is alogical.
Is this why you lied about what Webster says of alogical?

Actually, the Pledge of Allegiance is not supported by biblical teachings, but you can't tell that to the Religious Right because they already know everything there is to know - ask YaA... There are Christian sects who will not make or take oaths in accordance with scripture, but they are considered fringe groups by the mainstream.
Even as a child, I never saw the point of reciting either the pledge to flag and republic or the Lord's Prayer (which at an early age is for all intents and purposes the pledge of allegiance to cross and Christianity) every weekday or Sunday simply because grownups told me to. Given what I can only deem rampant disloyalty of politicians and dishonesty of Christians, I don't perceive that rote and oaths do a lot of good.
Kind of like "In God We Trust"?

We put Darwin on our money.

Oh,the memories
Remember when I asked you if you knew what time it was? and you said " yes,but not right now
Then you wanted to know whether it was further to New York or by bus//
Right now it's 18:50 GMT

That's the time.

Contrast that with so many believers whose clock is centuries behind.

All life dies, and you refuse to deal with that reality. So when you make jokes like this(that make no sense) it is really ironic.
All life dies,but before it dies,first it has to live..So life can not have it's origins from dead matter
And here we differ again, I think my jokes are funny, you think my jokes are ironic..
Could be we are both wrong,my jokes may be absurd.....LOL

We do have postage stamps with Darwin on them, as do a couple dozen other countries.
"In God we trust" on money was simply a kneejerk reaction and now we're stuck with it. So people get to do all kinds, manner and sorts of nasty things with paper and coinage that has God's name on it. Seems like someone didn't quite think that through. <shrug> We're talking about religies, so that could've gone without saying.

Exercise their second amendment, of course.
What you don't realize is that the typical right winger considers Israelis to be honorary WASP Americans and the Palestinians are just some more of those lazy ungrateful brown illegals who should by their God Given nature be happy to live in slums and ghettos with strong civilized government supervision. If they weren't all murderous thugs and heathen savages, they might realize it's their own fault the liberals are making them uppity.

Mind you, we're just as bad with our national anthem.

It needs changing anyway because one of the verses circa 1745 is anti-Scottish:

Lord, grant that Marshal Wade,
May by thy mighty aid,
Victory bring.
May he sedition hush,
and like a torrent rush,
Rebellious Scots to crush,
God save The King.

If the Ukranian missile hadn't hit the plane but instead killed a bunch of kids on the beach in Gaza, the world's media could have taken the afternoon off.

Personally, I've always found the best place to work toward "diminishing" the likes of, is within ones own self.

But then, that's just my opinion.

Opinion-may have something to do with people having "free will" of personal CHOICES, and stuff.

And as for your second talking point-me thinks that would be according to whom was reading it.

I know no one has claimed that they have reduced the numbers of believers,and that is the failure of you atheists. Which is precisely what I have pointed out,,,,,,And,for the sake of those you may have deconverted,it is a great thing that you failed....
What with the maladies that atheism inflicts upon the members of that faith,as described by atheist Staks Rosch and many scientific Studies,including the Mayo Clinic and the USMC.
It may be your ultimate goal, which to date has proven an abject failure.
It may take a lotttttttttttttttttttttttttttt tttttttttttttttttttttttttttttt tttt longerrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr rrrrrrrrrrrr
than you think..
Eventually,it will become public knowledge of the maladies that afflict atheists, the poor unsuspecting souls you prey on will wisen up and your hot air balloon will come crashing down..........
I am of the opinion that the tactics used by atheists who attempt to deconvert an unsuspecting public should be investigated by the authorities.
Any faith that causes the maladies associated atheism should be considered a threat to the mental and physical being of society at large
So your main tactic to hold believers is fear tactics? Demonize the opposition? Well it did work in the crusades and inquisitions, so it just may work.
I do not really expect to change a lot of minds, but I do think it is only fair they have the information to make a decision.
I realize your team hates that, but this free country does not allow you to stop us.
