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.

That's right dear. From the UK, I walked to 26 US states, Bhutan, Nepal, New Zealand, Chile and Africa and forty other non-European countries.

I was back for tea.

Look at the Arab world now. Soveriegn Countries that are being annexed by the west for Oil and strategic military bases.

What is happening to the Arab world by the west is disgusting.

But do you know why the British and American public don't stand up for Muslims like they did for the Vietnamese. Its because of views like yours.

If Muslims were to shut up once in a while and let the real horrors of what is happening to them be known without radical clerics declaring Jihad on the british public, or crazed Imams asking for Sharia law in Britain, then the Britsh people would fight your cause for you.

The Brits are fairly politically savvy and aren't afraid to say when something is wrong. The British people showed their defiance when Iraq was initially attacked.... but nutjobs like Abu Hamza, poppy Burning weirdos and Anjem Choudhary ruin it for everyone else.

It makes me wonder if there is a reason these people get media coverage and are allowed to remain in the UK. Maybe their abbhorrence is what allows us to keep making ridiculous foreign policy in the Middle East

A fairly common attack, a bit of warmed over Dawkins, but not express as well ..
Seems an attempt to express frustration at Not being in Control of all our lives. Thank God she is not in control :-)
Atheists, Agnostics, Christians, Jews and Muslims most often learn from each other in peace and tranquility. Peace
We're not sure why you keep spamming the forum, but you are definitely a Creationist Cult Member who knows that they are lying.

I did not say that, it is your own interpretation.

It is state's duty also to monitor the moral standards of its people.

when is all this chatter going to end? 2038? right now I'm scared about those suppositions that there are other universes more or less as in the Algebra world and that our own universe is FLAT. Now where have I heard that story before? Stop the world I want to really get OFF.

Creationist Cult Member says "fairly common attack" but then glaringly offers no "fairly common rebuttal".

Shady people these Creationist liars.

The Creationist liars strategy is always either one of:

1. Flat out denial (but no counter evidence)
2. Changing the subject or arguing off-topic.
3. Spamming the forum once they've embarassed themselves.

Not as amusing as you, a Creationist Cult Member referring to your own book as the "buybull".

Indicating that you have.

Now that ......I have shown that there are enough flaws in scienctific theories to make more than enough space for a god to slip right on through ! And also now that I have won every debate I have had on this thread using pure logic and (believe it or not, Science itself !) I am wondering how you atheists can still maintain your belief system ? When you have no arguments and no science to back you up ! Your as void as your beliefs :)

When did you refute Evolution and Big Bang convincingly on this thread?Would you recapitulate your arguments that supposedly made you win this debate?Self-approval doesn't count as victory
