Atheism and cowardice

Nov 18, 2011 | Posted by: roboblogger | Full story: Conservapedia

Have any of the New Atheists toured [[Islam]]ic countries giving lectures in which they condemn [[Allah]], [[Muhammad]], Islam, or Muslims? Have any of them debated Muslims in Islamic countries? Have any of them been interviewed on Al Jazeera? Have any of them written entire books in which they condemn Allah, Muhammad, Islam, or Muslims? Have they ... (more)

Religious indoctrination is child abuse.
Don't inflict religion on a child before they're legally allowed to drink.
Are you then sure imposition of atheistic worldview to your kids is not a form of "abusive" indoctrination?

No, denying your children from what one know positively affects oneself is a form of child abuse. Parents naturally go with what they believe is best for their childre, and no one would call you an abuser for denying your children a theistic worldview that has proven to help kids in positive ways. It would be child abuse for parents to go to their churches while leaving the kids behind. It would be child-abuse for parents to live one way while trying to hide it from the children. On simply have to live honorably and honestly, and nothing is preventing the kids from thinking for themselves when they grow up.

Well, since most people on the planet don't believe in your god, why not have a christian child, a buddhist child and a hindu child instead of all three the same religion?

So, are you responding to my post or are you still talking to yourself? I have no idea what your point is here.

OK had to look this up.:-)
Enjoyed your post and watched another episode on youtube

"Father Ted is an Irish sitcom that was produced by Hat Trick Productions for British broadcaster Channel 4. An Irish-British co-production, written jointly by Irish writers Arthur Mathews and Graham Linehan and starring a predominantly Irish cast, it originally aired over three series from 21 April 1995 until 1 May 1998, including a Christmas special, for a total of 25 episodes."

Have you read my posts to Quantum Bob, do you really know my position enough? If you are speaking on behalf of Quantum Bob, answer to the points of mys respond instead of cheap accusations. My initial post to Quantum Bob was just a friendly FYI post to clear up the thread-entry point assumption. If doing that would cause some atheists to respond in such hateful way, then you have only prove that some atheists are worse than other atheists, and I have always been in nice conversation with other atheists here (in Islam forum).
When you're brave enough the prove the god you're here to lie about to us, your halfwit opinions about atheists might matter more

Atheism is not a worldview, its a fact. If you can provide evidence for the alternative, you will look less stupid here.

You're in the wrong thread - you're looking for the "I'm a weasel with no proof of god or any proper arguments about atheism, but I'll chat self-righteous bullsh*t anyway to prop up the creationist trolls"

The claim that "it is fact" comes right out from your worldview too, you know?

If you are so keen on insisting that I prove "God" (which is a nonsense request by definition, and which I see as your convenient one-size-fits-all distraction form real argument), would you then prove your claim that Atheism is a "fact"?

I never claim theism to be a provable fact (I would just as well return to my atheist past if I hold that view), so there is no bravery necessary to admit there can't be a proof. I have discussed this at length with other atheists in the past, tell me why I should waste my time with you after seeing your "sincerity" in responding to posts?

UK has given us this genius holding an apple in my avatar. One who contributed so much in defeating Hitler (on top of his many computational and mathematical advances), but sadly was persecuted to his suicide by the very country he helped save - for being a gay.

Avatar picture taken from the statue of Alan Turing in his memorial at Sackville Park, England - as "atonement" for UK's sin of not loving their hero.

But of course, that can be used by atheists to launch attack
against theism...

I have an issue with religious ghettoisation caused by indoctrinating children into the same faith as their parents.

You said that enforcing no religion until say 16/18/21 was inflexible.

I suggested an alternative methodology.

How was that not relevant?
