And if someone is a theist, personally that's not what I do. I DO reserve the right to call them ignorant if they are an anti-science creationist though.<quoted text>
Hey now you are catching on. It is just as silly to bithc at, to label someone, to call them ignorant, and/or run because they believe in God.
And why not? They have the freedom to call evolution and all those accept it stupid or atheistic or whatever, even though they're wrong. Apparently they can say wtf they like but if anyone DARES to disagree then they feed us the biggest whine-fest EVER.
Because they think that someone saying "no" to them is like personally hanging them on a cross, just like Jesus.
No, actually we follow science because we have an interest in science. THEN we find out that a VAST movement of religious fundies want to throw science out the window not just for them, but for EVERYBODY, because they don't like the fact that reality says it's a bit different to what the Bible sez it is. Naturally we're a bit peeved when they attempt to push their BS onto others, and have every right to be. And for two very good reasons:You follow Darwin and his is your hero. The last 150 years has shown/told you that.
1 - Science. It shows they are wrong. Period.
2 - Even more importantly, religious freedom. It doesn't just apply to Christian fundies, as much as they wish it to be just like it was back during the Dark Ages.
If only you could, eh.They follow God and he is there savior. The last 4000 years has shown/told them that.
It is amazing all the stupid crap humans will argue over just because someone believes/sees things differently. ie; popularity, money, race, religion, science, etc etc.
If what someone follows/believes does not effect my life, then I have no problem with it.
Live and let live.
Well once you've figured out what the First Amendment means then maybe everyone can do that. Until that time, you're still part of the American Taliban.
