Yep.

There is no end of it, too--

-- it's a damn shame we cannot harness that BS for something useful.

Like making beer (from the heat) or fertilizing crops (from the bs)...

... alas, all that Conservative BS is good for is making certain rich men even more wealthy.

Understood, However most of the time you hear the word it's opposed to Someones rights or proExploitation and fast becoming synonomous With "Religious Nut". For My own self I prefer "Traditional" to denote values I hold personaly so as not to identify Myself with those seeking to impose thier Beliefs on Others. funny how things Change used to be "Progressive" was a good thing now it's practicly a curse word with the Right Wing. Ain't language funny that way?

Jack has a good point. The conservative emphasis on traditional values carries the implicit notion that there is a single set of such values. But in a diverse society, there is a wide range of tradition, and the values that go with them vary just as widely. When taken to a universal level, the phrase loses most or all of its meaning.

There ain't nothin' funny about my Christian beliefs. Well,'cept maybe the fact that my LORD and SAVIOR was a 33-year-old virgin carpenter. Who the HELL even admits to being a male virgin at 33?

Then there's the business 'bout Mary opening her legs to Yahweh and bein' artificially inseminated like some bizarre livestock experiment such as the ones the FFA toys around with here in Texas.

I'm afraid that many of the conservative traditional values were formed when America considered itself a "melting pot" where people from diverse backgrounds made an effort to blend in, average out. Now the country is simply a vessel in which diverse groups expect to maintain their cultural identities, not melting, melding or even respectful of one another. The end result of a functional "melting pot" society would be a single set of values and a perpetuation of that societies identity. This no longer seems to be the case. We've become more of a "giant pot of soup" place with the various ingredients lending their flavors. Is this "soup" palatable? I think it sucks. There's a certain permanence and strength associated with the "melting pot" concept that I just don't get from a bowl of soup. But, that's just me.

No need to avenge anything. Christians are not Muslims.
You can slander our God on our beliefs it doesn't hurt our feelings.

Actually, it is you "fundamentalshit christians" who have been proven wrong time and time again.

Heck, you guys can't even find the big wooden barge after 4400+ years and your "science and history textbook" tells you EXACTLY where to look.

Further, most of the people who disagree with Skeptic are NOT atheists, they are agnostics and Christians who also AGREE with him about the validity of the Theory of Evolution and global climate change, but who think he's a little over the top with his anti-religion schtick.
