That is one of the reasons I don't send my daughter to a public school. Unfortunately, this country -including people like Maher and many other posters here - and other parts of the world are living a new religion. The religion of "me-ism." THe other big one "consumerism" These usually go hand in hand. THe me-ists are so involved in themselves, and think there is no one greater. They feel they are accountable to no one. This is very dangerous. People feel entitled to do whatever they want because they don't think there are consequences. They worship THEMSELVES. FOOLISH. Foolish people indeed. May there eyes and hearts open up.
That's a bit of a stretch. My family is predominately Catholic (I'm the black sheep), and I also have good friends that are atheists. Some of my family members border on materialistic, but most of my friends are quite charitable.

The majority of posters that agree with Maher strike me as intelligent and reasonable. They just do not believe in God. So what?

Did God have any special religion in mind? The one true church (RC) or does He lean towards the Lutherans? Perhaps He favors the Baptists?

Please ask Him and get back to us.

The Jews I can tolerate: They keep their imaginary friends to themselves, and they don't want you anyways.

It's the christians and catholics who are the worst. They want to tell you how to live and what to believe. They want to brainwash you with their fairy tales. THEY are easily the most obnoxious people on earth.

Science is magic.

Scientists dont know much. They come to conclusions about alot of things but are proven wrong more then they are right.

The best scientists in the world believe in a higher power.

Just because you cant see it doesnt mean it doesnt exist.

Can you see the microorganisms that are crawling all over your body? they look like bugs under a microscope, You drink them every day in your water too.

Hell, time its self is an illusion.

Bill Maher rocks! Those of us from the Atheist and Agnostic persuasion have always been in the the minority in this country.

I am happy that Bill is willing to go out on a limb and poke the 800 lb gorilla that is organized religion and religious belief.

Another unmoralistic person attempting to be a comedian. Complaining about and joking about religion is one thing but when you talk about, on Conan the other night, Gov. Palins daughter getting "Knocked up", yes a quote from him, he shows his true colors. How anyone can call him funny is beyond me. You just don't kid about things like that. What goes around comes around.

News flash from the AP wire:

There is no god. God==all ages Santa Claus

Jesus was a ficticious character in a fairy tale

That "holy experience" you had was just gas from the beans you ate the day before.

Faith is best placed in YOURSELF and in deserving others, not in imaginary friends and ficticious characters.

This guy couldn't organize his brain to have a "real time" cognitive thought.....There is nothing funny in his comedy.... He's just a left wing Rotweiler on a long leash that can get into your livingroom if you don't keep the gate locked on the television.....

Liberalism has no rules.

They will kill anyone who isnt down with "liberalism" as seen at the RNC.

I dont care anymore, these fiznuck heads are worthless. they dont care about anyone....

these peices of junk destroyed peoples buisnesses in the name of liberalism. They care about small business? they want to be "liberal"

The UK is a good example of liberalism... Non-Muslims cant even burry a family member on the weekends because its reserved for Muslims only.

Tolerance = death to a society with rules.

I do not have the time to start from scratch and try to educate every doubter I encounter on these boards.
The facts are out there. There are literally thousands of websites, textbooks, and research papers available online.
I could post hundreds of these links, direct you to the Evolution threads here on Topix where real scientists and researchers post regularly.
But what good would that do? If you have to ask if gravity is superstitious because it can't be seen, then your knowledge of basic Biology and of the scientific method are so weak that all those big words are sure to intimidate you there too.
But here are a couple, just in case you do care to read up:

I find it hilarious that you pontificate on the superior merits of your knowledge of the origins of man and use an illustration of a discarded Darwinian theory for your avatar:“ontogeny recapitulates phylogeny” Abandoned long ago. And now, open minded scientist in many disciplines, especially microbiology sign on to the conviction that there is evidence for intelligent design. Joke is on you.

You have every right to believe that as an American.

When you sit on your death bed I bet you think twice about it tho.

To say God doesnt exist just makes you arrogant.

Science has proven God right..

I have found Darwin to be illogical.

Darwin him self thought his theory was illogical.

If evolution is fact then we are aliens. We went from primitive tools to the internet in 200 years. more so the last 50 years.

Evolution in theory takes time.

Maher is an idiot. He makes money off of publicity, negative or positive. The networks, producers, etc. are all making money from this garbage and that is the bottom line. If it be from this kind of caca or other, he will continue to put this stuff out there. If promoting religion would make them more money, that is what they would be doing. They are all laughing all the way to the bank. Just ignore these schmucks and they might go away.
