"It was, of course, a lie what you read about my religious convictions, a lie which is being systematically repeated. I do not believe in a personal God and I have never denied this but have expressed it clearly. If something is in me which can be called religious then it is the unbounded admiration for the structure of the world so far as our science can reveal it."

First there is absolutely no evidence that the theory of evolution is true. It is all based on a wild guess with no evidence to back it. It was supposed to have happened millions of years ago with no one it witness it. Those who believe it will have you believe it is based on evidence like the fossel record but that too is false. The fossel record does not support the theory of evolution. The evolution process was supposed to happen gradually over a long period of time. The fossel record does not support that. That is why I can call evolution a religion. It takes a lot more faith to believe in evolution than it does to believe in a creator!
You using such words as 'falsehood' does not change the facts!
You don't even know how to spell "fossil". Argument Invalid.

I'd disagree-Derwin, for one example, worshipped plant life and birds, all his life. As a matter of FACT, he wrote and rewrote his book "The Origin of the Species" five times, in thirteen years, due to constant new findings.
You seem to be stretching the meaning of "worship" to fit your argument.

Worship within a religious context has a different flavor than *really liking* something.

By your logic, a comic book collector worships comics. A guy who goes to every UK game worships UK. A person who considers James Cameron to be the greatest director worships James Cameron.

That puts God on the same level as stamps.

Don't you anything better to do than to follow people around and post after them UNoriginally?

It doesn't look like it.

Waste of time-actual thinking people know better, and there are MANY, MANY in the "bigger world" that realize, there's TONS of data bits that could be copy and pasted as per "Albert Einstien".

However,(personal opinion here) the BEST ones have a story along with them. The quote on Faith/Religion and Science IS one of his more famous ones, even among the Scientifically Mastered degreed plus.

True ORIGINALITY is a wonderous thing.

We, that have read the Bible, all know the horror tales within.
I do believe a good and loving God holds better for those who heed in wisdom, rather than ignore out of willful (or even worse-hateful) ignorance though.
If there is a good and loving God then why did he order the murder of women and children in 1 Samuel 15:2-3? Is this not the same God? If it is not the same God, where was the good and loving God at that time? Was he just watching the action?

And that's just one story. As you point out, the Bible is full of horror. I have no idea why people think they can tease out a "good and loving" God from that book unless they are willfully ignorant of the horror.

It's got to create some cognitive dissonance in your head to believe something like that while being faced with direct contradictory evidence.

The christian cult claims that we can not disprove god, yet we have over and over again.
The earth being round not flat, germs not unclean spirits causing illness, spacecraft going much higher than the tower of Babble, the earth orbiting the sun, powerful space telescopes that show us what is out in space (no angels or heaven)
All are proof that there is no god.

Now that I can agree with.... In Science the only thing that can be accurately be called Proof is a Mathematical Proof and is a term of art in mathematics.... Other than that the Terms "Proof" & "Proven" are Individual Conclusions and never absolutes...

A single piece of Evidence may cause a individual to say a claim is proven but a 1000 pieces of evidence about the same claim to another individual may not cause they to say the claim is proven...

Take the UFO idea... I have studied 1000's of pieces of evidence and I am not convinced that UFO are extraterrestrial craft, I have even taken a photo of what could be classified as a UFO yet all that Evidence has not convinced me of the claim...

Others have seen just one light in the sky are are absolutely convinced of the claim that UFO are extraterrestrial space craft...

This would be in direct violation of seperation of church, and state, but also the right of freedom from religion. I can't wait to see the justified lawsuits because of this theocratic bill.

To the people saying are founding fathers were Christian, you need to brush up on your history. Most were deists (excluding George Washington who though Christian criticized religion) Deists believe that there is a god, but he doesn't worry, or mettle in what we do in the world. The god in the bible obviously mettled in the world by burning cities, sending a plague on Egypt, and judging our very human nature to be flawed. In other words the founding fathers did not support your longing for theocracy.

If there was just one bit of evidence that there is a god and we have life after death it would bring comfort because my belief that when we die we no longer exist, no more chemical reactions and electron flow, can be a bummer. But not even one bit of evidence for god has ever been found

At least no Evidence that can be Verified, Tested and Repeated... And that is what is required for any evidence to be considered valid...

"The Bible" is not an issue. It's the Gospel and Good News of Jesus Christ. For only those who see it as you, would have an "issue". I will be praying that you would have a sound understanding of the Bible.

It's not appropriate to teach religion in school. we live in a diverse society and can't teach all religions in schools. One has to keep these separate, it's up to the parents to inform their children on religious upbringing. I thought this issue was long solved, but i see it keeps coming back up.
