<quoted text>quality counts, not quantity. atheists are much more intelligent, usually - you know who excepted!(we agree about that one!) and there are some nice theists, even some who are kinda smart about other things, other than religion. and not all atheists are nice or intelligent. all it means is not believing in a god. it does not have anything to say about ethics - that requires other descriptive terms, such as secular humanist, if that is what someone is - which most of the nicer and wiser atheists are, more or less. some of the good ethics of kind atheists are not that different from some of the good ethics of kind believers - that is the good news, despite all our arguments about theology. people on both side can believe in being kind to other living beings. that helps, it is a basis to begin looking for agreement on behavior - and then let people disagree about the theology part without hating each other.(or using all sorts of ignorant four letter words to denounce others or lie about them - Skeptic is worst on the atheist side, but some socalled Christians are pretty vile in their language occassionaly, also)
I believe that there is a balance in intelligence between theists and atheists. We just tend to favor one over the other. My best friend is atheist and we never argue about our differences. But we can sure party and have a great time ( not partying a lot). I don't drink much, I eat very healthy, and workout everyday and in great shape so partying is only once in awhile. I enjoy a glass of wine here and there. There is nothing wrong with debating as long it's clean. Skeptic is history and I am waiting for him to post as me again. Lol!

If they do and even 1 student complains, these coaches and teachers can (and should) lose their jobs.

It happens all the time. Guess what, they don't get fired! Even at graduation there is a prayer. What about that?

This is coming from the person that has in the past compared atheists with hitler, child molestors, communists, democrats, liberals, homosexuals and all sorts of ridiculous labels.

He's claimed Einstein was a theist (and smacked down with evidence to the contrary).

He's claimed to be from Notre Dame university, and rejects Evolution yet has no facts to back up why.

Also you're a Creationist that believes the earth is 6000 years old and that humans rode on the backs on dinosaurs.

That's your cult - the truth - the reality that you are a foul cult liar with no shame who lies again and again and gets smacked down and embarrased in this public forum every day for the last two years.

A lot of atheists are intelligent people and can hold a great conversation using evidence to back up their claims during a debate. Others are an embarrassment to atheists because they have no knowledge of what's going on and use "f" words, make unusual claims, and lie by using others moniker and make things up. I guess every group have their black sheep. On these threads it's simple, it's Skeptic and Givemeliberty. Lol! Have a glorious evening!

So why did you call them all sorts of reprehensible names and insults while trying to big up your Creationist lies?

You squirm when cornered for your bullsh*t.

And others get put in their place because they are caught in their lies. Skeptic is a prime example. He shall use your moniker to post nonsense. Lok!

So no proof of god or that you;re not a Creationist liar, lying about god to intelligent atheists who had disproven your ridiculous beliefs time and time again with hard evidence.

In a Representative Republic, it is not the majority that rules, but the representatives.
Somebody's representing the churches, so even cannabalism still has it's place our world.
The KJV bible says that an angry god will make you eat your children, and christ on a cracker ... communion. The ritualistic pagan practice of eating the flesh of those whom one admires, or wants to be like.

Legally, sort of a gray area:

Cannibalism is the nonconsensual consumption of another human's body matter. In the United States, there are no laws against cannibalism per se, but the act of cannibalism would probably violate laws against murder and against desecration of corpses.

The British formally outlawed cannibalism in the early 1800s.[1] By most accounts, it was the spread of Western religion and law into pre-industrial societies that extinguished many cannibalistic practices.[2] In countries with established legal infrastructure—that is, in which they were economically successful enough to afford courts—cannibalism had already been made rare.
~~~
and then this:

Perhaps the strangest case was that in 2006 of German Armin Meiwes, who solicited for -- and found -- a willing victim to cannibalize. Meiwes posted an online ad "looking for a well-built 18- to 30-year-old to be slaughtered and then consumed." A man named Bernd Jürgen Brandes volunteered, and Meiwes ate Brandes over the course of the next ten months. Despite his victim's participation Meiwes was convicted of murder and sentenced to life in prison.

The idea that consuming another's flesh (or taking another person's body parts) gives the cannibal or killer some special power or ability is ancient. Tribes in South America, Indonesia, and elsewhere practiced headhunting into the twentieth century, often taking limbs and heads as war trophies and sources of magic. This theme can be found in mainstream religion as well; for example in Roman Catholicism bread and wine are believed to literally -- not just figuratively -- become the flesh and blood of Jesus upon consumption (in a process called transubstantiation).

There are many myths about humans eating human flesh. While some historians believe that cannibalism was an accepted practice in some tribal societies, this view has been disputed by William Arens, an anthropologist at the State University of New York at Stony Brook.
