My blog posts on religion have attracted a lot of controversy. Religious people are annoyed by my claim that belief in God will go the way of horse transportation, and for much the same reason, specifically an improved standard of living.

Because idiots are as common as dirt-- especially in the middle east?
You are a FINE specimen of idiot, for example.
Your comments only show your stupidness and your foul mouth.

I know cursing and abusing and insulting is your "normal way of talking".

Get primitive, Muq - you know you love it.
My proof was "better" than yours!!

By "every" standard!!

I do not know where you evolved or not...you are trying to "de-evolve" and go back to that ape like ancestor, you supposed to have evolved from.

And another thing, why try and bring scriptures out to me when you will get torn down. And why bring scriptures out when you don't belive in the most high? That means you acknowledge the most high wether you think the scripture is evil or not. You say the most high dosent exist, ok, then why are you trying to prove something out of a book which you say the god of don't exist? And you don't know the bible I done proved that, so don't try and tell me about it.
If I quote "Alice In Wonderland" does that mean I believe a girl named Alice once existed and that Wonderland is a real place that I'd like to visit one day?

If I can quote said story, how can you 'done prove' different? What is it you think you are proving/disproving. Uhhh, black and white print is really....kind of black and white.

<quoted text>Yes, but there are so many dafties on Topix. Why respond and why be rude to them? I don't think it helps.
I just thought that it was a bit ignorant to imagine that black or brown skinned people had no use for sun screen. Not an idea to go unchallenged, perhaps?
Yes, I believe it needs challenging and thank you for it. Anyone who would make a statement so obviously rediculous would put one in a quandry as how to answer.

I have Italian heritage, I read it as a joke at first, then looked at the poster's name.....The man(?) himself is ignorant and rude. I don't think responding nicely or not to him will make any difference. If you disagree, he'll act like a jerk anyway.

Just depends on your personal preference and how much patience you've got. I prefer to be nice but I've not got an abundance of patience......sooooo ;0)

Didn't the last census have Christianity heading to a minority?
Was still other religions though; with, I think, more people claiming some belief over none. Was even still some Jedi's about.
An ingrained need persists for some type of belief in 'other'. With education to think for themselves I think there will be less deluded come 2038 though not defeated. Parents bring up children by their own philosophy and even when rejected on a temp basis they go back to whatever it is sooner or later in life. The only way round this would be to bring kids up in a kibbutz type scenario perhaps.
I've worked for the Census Bureau a few times, no religious affiliation questions are allowed.

There are different studies and polls showing the decline of religion in this country. I think the title of this thread shows the posit of some polls that religious folk will be in the minority percentage come 2038.

My mother declared to the day she died that, "I didn't raise any atheists." She believed I was going through a phase....I suppose. Yes, young people are one of the least religious demographics. This doesn't mean that rejection of faith is only temporary for all. Statistics are already proving this.

You mean you HOPE you will be in heaven.

You don't know for sure.

By the way - which god are you referring to?

Pay attention because I would hate for your stupidity to cause pain to someone you know.
Every person of every race can get a sunburn. Every person of every race can get skin cancer and other cancers that can be caused by overexposure to the sun.
Seriously, crack open a book other than the bible sometime.
But where does the bibble and scribble say anything about sunburn? So where does s/he/it get this misinformation anyway.....surely he's not just making stuff up out of whole cloth.....wonder if that's allowed on topix....oh gee, it's late and I'm afraid I've read too many willfully stupid posts....my bad.

I'm STILL waiting for you to explain why your ...ahem.. "hero" was a child-raper.

So far, you keep ignoring that fact.

Your Moohumud the illiterate mad bomber, was also a child-raper.

He could not POSSIBLY be a good man as a result.

Thus?

Everything he had anything to do with?

Is pure-D evil.

Sorry, but that's the facts, jack.

<quoted text> ok, I'm not from america I'm from uk, I don't follow religion its pagan, that's about the 10th time I've said that. Moab- japanese. Ishmael-arabs,indians. Japheth-persains,chinese. Ham-africans. Esau-caucasians. Israelites-negros, south americans, west indians, aboriginies,red indians. I don't have a preacher, you have to try and undermind me because you don't know what the bible is. You think its full of fairytales, that's what religion has taught you. And your right you don't go to heaven when you die, dosent say that in the bible, that's what religion teaches.
Actually I do know the bible, it is why I am atheist. And it was religion that taught me that the bible was all real.

Reality taught me that it is all fairy tales. Being a realist comes with a price, it is nearly impossible to delude myself

They have been there since 9/11. It should be a interesting conversation don't you think?

"Don't know nothing" is a DOUBLE NEGATIVE, which means the phrase (NOT a sentence) translates to knowing SOMETHING. Get an education. It's nearer the truth YOU don't know ANYTHING.
