Here is the irony of your assertion, if we did revere them as "gods" then at least we know they exist, we have evidence, facts, and compelling proof of their existence, which is much more than your god has.

As it happens we all laugh at you instead.

In fact even the fundies do too.

I see that you didn't investigate the link, which reveals that Richard Dawkins' PhD thesis is best compared to a middle school science project.

Even if that opinion of his work was true, it's still a step up from the kindergarten level fables in the bible. Meh.

I prefer the truth about Jesus above the mythologizing of dullards like Albert Einstein http://everythingimportant.org/Einstein_worsh... or the hero worship of non-scientists like Charles Darwin.

You are presumptuous, and very arrogant. So let's just destroy your source, shall we?

The website you liked is nothing but a collection of assertions with no valid evidence backing it. The bible is also nothing but a collection of assertions with no solid evidence backing them, thus anything based on it inherits this quality. You discount science not because it's wrong but because you simply do not want to put in the effort of learning anything. That is the reason people will use the bible and ignore everything else, laziness.

A truly wise person will learn about as much as possible before making any attempt to form an opinion on any matter, you have not done that.

As the Scriptures assert, the judgment of hypocrites are the judgments of self. Evidently, you failed to discern that most of that page was copied from the website of the Brookhaven National Laboratory (Take Your Sons and Daughters to Work Day, April 28, 2005). It is also plainly evident that you didn't listen to the song (written by a physicist) which was written to propagandize children and initiate them into the cult of Einstein worship. The quotes from Einstein himself and the other references could be confirmed by a little research. Must a website do all your thinking for you? If so, then you are the cultist that I think you are.

Since I am the person in the opening paragraph relating my experience in graduate school, I could easily be persuaded to disclose the professor's name that shamed me by his worshipful praise of Einstein, which exceeded my devotion to Jesus Christ.

The website Eugene linked to is his very own. Lots and lots of really whacky stuff in there. I wonder why that is?

The answer to your why is that you can't cope with the child abuse sanctioned by the elite heroes of science.

I think I will let God decide, if He exists, which one of us is evil and prone to LYING.

Personally, I think YOU should be more worried than me since I don't constantly LIE to little children and about who and what I am.

Plus LOTS of self-aggrandizement since everyone else he comes in contact with recognizes him for the pompous, arrogant, ignoramus that he is.

You should see some of the conversations he's had on various math and physics forums. His humiliation would be sad if it were happening to someone other than Eugene.

What about the BILLIONS Christians, Jews, Muslims, Hindus, Buddhists, Confucianists, Daoists, Shinto, Pagans, Wicca, etc., who understand and accept the biological Theory of Evolution as the best scientific explanation we have for the diversity of life we see on planet Earth, past and present, and who would also probably think you're mentally disturbed (if they had the misfortune of interacting with you).

Why only atheists?

Then as you are a known and confirmed liar, you are not blessed.
