Atheism requires as much faith as religion? bearvspuma : The only problem with this rationalization is that ita s assuming all athiests are so because theya re intelligent in the ways of science and reasoning and all people that believe in a form of god are unintelligent.

Nice backpedal, if I wasn't paying attention. You very clearly said that prayer is disruptive.
You then went on to imply that disruption in public school violates the United States Constitution.
Weird.
The way I read the post, the point was that prayers that disrupt the educational process are not constitutionally protected, not that they violate the Constitution. The difference is not even all that subtle. Since they are not so protected, school policies that limit or forbid disruptive prayers are valid and may be enforced.

Saying grace at the cafeteria table is thus protected, while loudly reciting the 23rd psalm during math class is not. The student who does the former should be left alone while doing the latter can (and should) result in disciplinary action.

“Superstition does not belong in the place of learning.”
Here’s the problem with your statement. Atheism for some reason is accepting of the occult.
All Disney & children stories based on magic would be banned if that were the case. Neither would Harry Potter books would be allowed.
Of course all these books based on fantasy, superstition, folklore, and the occult are accepted in secular schools. But the Bible? Ohhhhh nooooo they can’t have the Bible. That would mean fairness and shelving the biases.
Hypocrisy doth abound my friend.
My mother taught me all I needed to know about RELIGION .
"You better pray that will come out of the carpet."

The position of the atheist is that the theist has not successfully met his or her burden of proof.

Proof, with regard to gods rests solely with the side claiming their existence.

When phrased to focus on faith, the claim typically centers on a fundamental misunderstanding of the meaning of atheism.

They have erroneously convinced themselves that atheism means absolute certainty that no gods exist.

They reason that to be absolutely certain without proof is a form of faith.

Atheism is not about certainty at all; it is about doubt.

Therefore I remain dubious until evidence surfaces to the contrary.

Not only are schools teaching safe sex, they're teaching sex to a crowd that is far too young. Thanks to the Liberals, they're handing out free condoms in school and demonstrating how to use them with phallic fruit. Not only that, 13-year-old girls can go get free abortions without their parents knowledge or consent, again thanks to the Liberals.
Apparently the 13 year old girls weren't watching the phallic fruit demonstration.

Second, Ahh I see, you have nothing in response to you need to vomit childish sexism.
Third, Lies. Christian countries with the christian heritage have traditionally been the most expansionist and intolerant and still are. All three of the abrahimic religions are noted for there intolerance.
Fourth, what you think is irrelevant, figures are available, do a google.
Fifth, and traditionally churches still have no idea when it is supposed to have happened, this is admitted despite your time machine attempts to go back 350 years or so from when the date was set to the time period claimed.
BTW, Easter is a hijacking of the northern European festival of Eostre, again documented and reluctantly admitted.

<quoted text>PROBLEM:
The record levels of CO2 have NOT increased the global mean temp even one tenth of one degree. In fact it has not risen by even one half of one tenth of one degree. That pretty much means it ain't gone up in the last 15 years when the amount of CO2 has steadily increased in the same time. The empirical evidence does not support your claim.
What else ya got to fling at the wall?
So I guess we should start building some REAL gas guzzlers and stop putting in catalytic converters. Burn all the oil we can find. Fire up some more coal fired and oill fired power plants.

Burn, baby burn! It's all good!

Yay!

Weird.
I'm pretty sure I said "maybe" the students prayer was being disruptive. There's no constitutional claim there. Disruptive is disruptive.

I then went on to say that a Christian prayer over the PA system WOULD be unconstitutional.

I stand by that.

What's the view like with your head up your ass?

There is not now, nor has there ever been, any proof that any god ever existed.

No faith required to believe that statement.

Ms. Buck Crick provides comedy relief for the thread only.

I have yet to see anything posted by this individual that warrants any attention whatever.

But, I do find her remarks at times quite funny and, it makes my day to have a good laugh.
