Don't dictate beliefs

No one else can say otherwise? That is basically saying those who do "believe in God" are better? Hardly.

Science gave me my home, lol? No, I bought my home.

There were many fields of labor and talent other than science that went into the making of my home, as well as most of the rest you mentioned.

And I thank God for making it all possible.

Also, my health is fine – with zero credit due science. I take no medications from science. When and if I ever do, I hope they won't be produced by FRAUDULENT scientists. Sadly, there are many cases in litigation due to bad medications.

God provides the very air you breathe. Try going without it for 5 minutes and see how well you do, lol.
They can't get that it's bad science that we would like to stop. As far as good science no problem. Just stop selling out the truth to keep your dreams alive.
Evolution has billions stuck into it trying to keep it a float. That ship is sinking and the sooner science jumps ship and abandons evolution the better off we all would be.

For one thing, they falsely declare that religion is evil.

It was in the news where a Christian group defended an 89 year old atheist's right to display a sign in his window which claimed religion was a “fairy tale”.
Would atheists defend Christians if Christians displayed signs saying science was based on fraud and fairy tales?

Judy isn't considered very “reputable”, lol.......to say the least.
But then, she may be a typical scientist, who knows?

You just posted another testament to the strength and reliability of science. See how effective science is as they weed out the fraudulent behaviour of others?

Perhaps they realised that "love" is not consigning billions of people to everlasting.

Or perhaps it was because they decided that "love" is not manipulating to arrange for the death of your son.

You only care about that law because it opposes scientific research. If it was say, a person who bombed an abortion clinic in the name of your religion, you wouldn't care, would you?
Well look at that:
www.washingtonpost.com/blogs/blogpost/post/pl...
So trying to help scientific advancement is bad for you, even when no one is harmed in the process, but bombing, and killing, for your religion is meh. Nice double standards there ... or is it a complete lack of standards?
We all know what Dim's religion thinks about scientific research.

Just look at the way Christians dealt with Galileo and his findings.

They're trying (and failing) to do it again with Darwin, but here we are over 160 years on and Darwin's great theory goes from strength-to-strength.

Unfortunately for you, the chances of thousands (possibly millions) of pieces of evidence being abandoned in favour of superstitious mumbo jumbo are non-existent.

No. I don't think that he believed it either. Much like L.Ron Hubbard didn't believe the trash that he put out.

Agreed. I wish these fundies would read the evidence for evolution. Such as Richard Dawkins' "The Greatest Show on Earth". But they are too afraid too.

Per the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, religious discrimination has doubled in the American workplace in only 13 years.

Isn't religious freedom protected by the Constitution?

It's SUPPOSED to be, but apparently not lately ...

Maybe atheists who dictate their own beliefs have something to do with that.

So why are atheists accusing Christians of dictating beliefs?

"However, subsequent attempts to replicate the findings by other researchers failed to establish any link with chronic fatigue syndrome."

Science wins again.

You just don't get how this game is played, do you.
