Can you not read. That creatard left a bit ago. His last post was he had enough or something like that. Do you always whip dead horses while you ramble. lol
... and now you have returned pretending to not be a creatard and with a new name. It's pretty obvious.

Yet state atheism remains the Mother of All Murderers on Steroids with about 150 million dead men ,women and children to its credit during the 20th century. The atheist Red Army, true to form raped its way across Europe during WWII. The statue in Berlin to the Russian soldier as been given another name by German women.They call it the tomb of the unknown rapist.
//////////
The Atheistic Red Army in action
THE Red Army's orgy of rape in the dying days of Nazi Germany was conducted on a much greater scale than previously suspected, according to a new book by the military historian Anthony Beevor.
Beevor, the author of the best-selling Stalingrad, says advancing Soviet troops raped large numbers of Russian and Polish women held in concentration camps, as well as millions of Germans.
Alexander Solzhenitsyn, the Nobel laureate who was then a young officer, described the horror in his narrative poem Prussian Nights: "The little daughter's on the mattress,/Dead. How many have been on it? A platoon, a company perhaps?"
How many German women were raped? One can only guess, but a high proportion of at least 15 MILLION women who either lived in the Soviet Union zone or were expelled from the eastern provinces. The scale of rape is suggested by the fact that about two MILLION women had illegal abortions every year between 1945 and 1948.

State atheism is a plague on humanity.
yet you have been shown time and time again that it was people of faith that did all that killing.

why do you have to keep posting that lie? perhaps we should start a thread a bout why cult members like you have to constantly lie to try and support their cult?

I and my family are practicing Christians. I understand and believe in the Jeffersonian principles regarding the separation of church & state. Because this nation is and has always been the world's melting pot, it's only common sense that we as a nation have a public education system that is religion-neutral. Yet at the same time I'm not a big fan of the ACLU and their heavy-handed bullying tactics.

Sorry, but that's not the case. You already lost this one. In court. Multiple times. Creationism is illegal as it's religion. Evolution is not because it ain't. Period.

You keep saying that every time. Right before you lose another court case. You've lost every evo-creo court case since 1925.

Your opinion has long since been proved wrong.

Fair is fair.

It would give the children a chance to make up their own mind.
Except ours has evidence. And is religion-neutral. Yours has no evidence and violates the First Amendment. You have no right to instate theocracy until you first destroy the US Constitution.

They already HAVE that choice. Any parents who don't want their kids to learn science can tell kids to lie on their tests. Or they can flunk science. Or they can homeschool them. Or send them to a private school where they teach the Flinstones as a science documentary. Or take them to any church they want that spews any old BS about the "evils of evilution". But they DON'T have the right to push their baseless religious opinions onto other people's kids, period.

Wrong. Kids CAN pray during break and lunchtimes when they don't have to do schoolwork. TEACHERS cannot pray in class or lead others to while being paid by the Gvmt.

You don't realize the more we are stiffled, the harder we push back.
Also, as far as taking away tax exempt status from religious organizations, could actually be your 'downfall'.(What you do by evil, God uses for good.)
By allowing these millions of groups, who were once silenced from their political views, once again to have freedom to do get deeply involved, changing this nation back to its roots.
It is going to allow them to crush their opponents at the voting booths.
A bit more than a single hurdle, bucko:

In one of his many wet dreams about the wonders of theocracy.

In reality they already tried that line of argument in court and lost. Every time.

'imagine2011' is a fantastic demonstration that fundies are incapable of learning from their past mistakes.

You should consider looking up the actual scientific definition of 'theory' so as to not come across as an uneducated hick.

He can. Unless he's being disruptive. You can't drop to your knees in a crosswalk and block traffic either.

Let's go over some debunked claims.
Shroud fans have said that no one knows how it could have been made. The fact is more than one way to reproduce the Shroud using 14th century technology exists.
The claim that the shroud was "contaminated" by fire. Debunked by people who calculated how much the shroud would have to have gained in mass to date at a 14th century date.
The next claim was that the cloth dated was a patch. That is extremely unlikely. They had to hit an invisibly repaired patch or hit an obvious patch, neither one seems very likely.
The more you add up the facts the more obvious that the Church was right in their first guess, the shroud is a fake.
There's another difficulty.

Wrap a towel around your head. Now flatten it out.

The impression will include the sides, stretched out...

I'm not putting that well, but the point is, the perspective's all warped. The only way one can get an image that looks like a portrait, rather than an impression, is, well, paint a portrait.

I didn't know McDonalds had such contracts.
