Thank you.

But why would I want to make consenting sodomy illegal?
I don't own a motorbike but I don't want to make motorcycling illegal.

Since you agree, join the move to make sodomy illegal again.

A lot has been said about scientist & atheism. There are many Christian Scientist that have outstanding careers. Take Robert Bakker for example.

Robert Thomas Bakker (born March 24, 1945) is an American paleontologist who helped reshape modern theories about dinosaurs, particularly by adding support to the theory that some dinosaurs were endothermic (warm-blooded).[1] Along with his mentor John Ostrom, Bakker was responsible for initiating the ongoing "dinosaur renaissance" in paleontological studies, beginning with Bakker's article "Dinosaur Renaissance". Scientific American. April 1975. His special field is the ecological context and behavior of dinosaurs.

Bakker has been a major proponent of the theory that dinosaurs were "warm-blooded," smart, fast and adaptable. He published his first paper on dinosaur endothermy in 1968. His seminal work, The Dinosaur Heresies, was published in 1986. He revealed the first evidence of parental care at nesting sites for Allosaurus. Bakker was among the advisors for the film Jurassic Park and for the 1992 PBS series, The Dinosaurs. He also observed evidence in support of Eldredge's and Gould's theory of punctuated equilibrium in dinosaur populations. Bakker currently serves as the Curator of Paleontology for the Houston Museum of Natural Science.

An Ecumenical Christian minister, Bakker has said there is no real conflict between religion and science. He has advised non-believers and creationists to read the views put forward by Saint Augustine, who argued against a literal understanding of the Book of Genesis. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Robert_T._Bakker

And still 93% of members of the NAS have no personal belief in god

Same sort of figure applies for members of the Royal Academy

I also agree religion should yield to science.

Most people of faith embrace real science. It is not something we are afraid of.

Now we differ on speculative pseudo science. Science that is unproven and is imaginary.

Probably by your reckoning but really I am through atheist and out the other side, it’s not that I believe there is no deity, I know it.
Prove it. The christian abuse of the word love is a very poignant topic on this thread at the moment.
Probably biogenesis but really unknown and I am really comfortable in myself with not saying “doh... don’t know so I guess it must have been my god ____ wotdunitwiv magic”. And there you have a choice of over 2400 creator gods you can use to fill in the blank.
Yes several times, 3 times cover to cover and too many individual chapters/pages/verse to count. Have you?
No, it will teach lies and hatred and genocide and violence and rape and slavery and theft and subjugation... you want verse numbers?
Petty much like most other places but more crowded and with more rain than many
Yes, and Burger King and KFC so don’t worry, your obsession with obesity inducing food can continue if you cross the pond.
Depends which country I am in.
I think I understand what you mean and the answer is yes. Note here is a much needed geography lesson, the UK is in Europe
I don’t
Blessed by what, a bronze age myth or a terrorist who was crucified for his crimes or juts your personal wish?
If you still follow the babble then I really doubt your last statement but there is hope.

That's a shame. I'd prefer it if you also dismissed pseudo sciences such intelligent design and homeopathy.

Not sure. Some of them seem awfully old?

Today we have less crime.
Less teenage pregnancies.
Less religion.

The old guard's demographic will fix its intolerant self soon enough.
