'RELIGION SHOULD BE TREATED WITH RIDICULE, HATRED AND CONTEMPT' Atheism, or 'antitheism,' which was once considered taboo in America, has gone somewhat mainstream in today's society.

Christianity: The belief that some cosmic Jewish Zombie can make you live forever if you symbolically eat his flesh and telepathically tell him that you accept him as your master, so he can remove an evil force from your soul that is present in humanity because a rib-woman was convinced by a talking snake to eat from a magical tree.

Makes perfect sense.

It is quite amusing.
It's as if a defense attorney tries to have thrown out, his client's confession on Day 1, but then tries to use that exact same confession on Day 3 as part of the defense....
The basic idea/premise of science is either accepted as the most likely, or not.
If accepted-- then it's conclusions must also be accepted as most likely.
Even of said conclusions go against your favorite fantasy-delusions.
Time after time, I have read the musings of scientists, who have admitted that the direction their researches have lead, were not a direction they though reasonable in the beginning...
... yet, the data points firmly in that direction, leading to the inescapable conclusion that their initial notions were ... wrong.
Being surprised by scientific study of the facts is one of the consequences of following the facts.

And here's the kicker...

"The good thing about science is that it's true whether or not you believe in it."
Neil deGrasse Tyson

Even if the theists prevail, the discoveries of science will still apply.

Although, in all fairness not so long ago, I suspected a divine intervention when my Windows machine did boot up.

Do you watch TV?
Mr. Leno continues to lead the late-night ratings race, ahead of both Mr. Letterman and Mr. Kimmel, respectively, according to Nielsen figures provided by NBC.
US – Jay Leno may not be the most popular TV personality, but a recent generous gesture might see his number of supporters increasing.
The late night talk show host has reportedly offered to take a pay cut in order to ensure the job security of his staffers.
NBC, broadcaster of Leno’s show, The Tonight Show, have already laid off about 20 employees, and have plans to continue culling jobs.
Seems a good guy
That's one hell of a non-sequitur...

So basically, what you mean by this is that it's impossible for anyone of faith to believe that science is true?

Atheists criticize Christians because they want to be acknowledged by the true body of Christ, but they can't stand to be part of it.

how do theists become this openly stupid? It is a mystery. Sometimes I wish I had the shamelessness that theists have, its must be chanelled from a deeper source of ignorance.

Theology has no place in the Public School System. It would represent the open wound through which the virii of religion would invade the body politic.

No doubt. After all, ignorance is the only path to their eternal salvation. Why risk your eternal soul absorbing a few facts?
