Don't dictate beliefs

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

If I don't allow preachers or scientists to tell me how to live my life, why should I give that priviledge to an atheist?

Simple. Atheist's practice the same intolerance, hate and bigotry they claim religion does.

If science did not feel a need to destroy nature in order to understand it, then it would not feel compelled to kill anything hoping to discover reasons for human diseases. Common sense dictates that if you want to know what human health is all about, you begin by studying humans who are healthy. Better to endeavor to understand the dynamics of being, the mind-body relationship then to destroy life.
Draining swamps, cutting down entire forests, degrading the landscape with strip mining, polluting the atmosphere, waterways and soil with toxic chemicals, and pushing species out of their natural habitats among other destruction, would not be necessary if human over population and gluttony weren't completely ignored.
Modern humankind unchecked is like a plague of locusts devouring everything in its path. Aside from reducing our numbers, we need to recover, and reclaim much more of the American wilderness. About 50% would be a fair and reasonable compromise. We have yielded too much too easily. It is time to start shoving cement, iron and machinery in the opposite direction before the entire nation, before the whole planet, becomes one steaming, stinking overcrowded high-tech ghetto.
So you are saying that killing a bacterium to cure a disease is immoral? Because, yes, bacteria do cause disease.

I don't take prescribed medication. What you THINK can literally make you sick and can also make you well. What you THINK can have a greater influence on the outcome of an illness then the medication you take.
It is environmental groups, people who care about the earth who are pressuring science to find non-destructive, less aggressive, more benign sustainable ways to meet the exorbitant demands overpopulation creates.
If you get bitten by a mosquito with malaria, what you *think* will be irrelevant. You are simply benefiting from the fact that disease is a LOT less common now than it was 100 years ago. And *that* is due to science.

Every single post that bigot has made he has done so on the atheism forum. He is obviously one of our Christhole trolls who changed his screen name after being humiliated so many times on his old screen name.

I swear these Fundies change their screen names more than a cheerleader changes her clothes during basketball season.

So you admit you are bigoted towards people who do no believe in god. Sounds religious to me. No surprise there as you celebrate the states where atheists can not run for office.

Not so long ago we had bigots like you celebrating minorities not being able to vote let alone run for office. Or women not being able to vote or run for office.

It's an excercise in futility. Killing bacteria doesn't cure disease.

Who are you kidding! You have more identities than Imelda Marcus had shoes! LOL! There is no mistaking your trademark (BHAAAAAAAAA) or your bigoted style. Ranting like a drama queen under different aliases about some fictitious war with woo practitioners doesn't make you right, it makes you an intolerant flamer.

What diseases specifically? Cancer, heart disease, stroke, respiratory diseases (COPD), and diabetes have all increased over the last 100 years.

Our digestive system is filled with millons of bacteria that provide crucial assistance in digesting food. The problem with science's solution (antibiotics) is that is kills bacteria indiscrimately both good and bad, causing a host of other problems. Subsequently, there are many new diseases and threats to human health due to science's interference with biological processes it doesn't understand.

"Antimicrobial resistance is not a new problem, but it has worsened dramatically in the last decade. During that time, the pace of development of new antimicrobials has slowed down while the prevalence of resistance has grown at an alarming rate. The increase in the number of drug-resistant bacteria is no longer matched by a parallel expansion in the arsenal of agents used to treat infections.

In this situation, doctors and their patients are more and more helpless. All age groups are affected. The elderly, the very young, the chronically ill and people whose natural defences are weakened by disease or medical treatment such as surgery are at greater risk of drug-resistant infections, but healthy people in the prime of life can also be attacked. Resistance to antibiotics and other drugs means that people with infections are ill for longer periods, and are at greater risk of dying, and that disease epidemics are prolonged.

Staphylococci, which can contribute to skin infections, endocarditis, osteomyelitis, food poisoning and other serious disorders, have developed resistance to all antibiotics except vancomycin. If vancomycin-resistant strains were to emerge, some of the most prevalent hospital-acquired infections would become virtually untreatable."

There's no such thing as god. Just give up.

We all know how this plays out. Everyone ends up taking apart your creationist propoganda and makes you look like a fool - then you attack the atheists and call them names.

Just go back to your cult, ask them why they can't prove god even though they've had centuries to do it, and do something with your life.

I hear that faint annoying little buzzing.
