Do you feel the US will ever become a secular nation?
Yes, I believe so.

It was a secular nation. The Christian right in this country would like to make it a theocratic oligarchy.
Some other modern secular nations would include Sweden, Denmark, Japan, etc. Modern secular nations routinely score better on livability indicators such as low felony rates, low teenage pregnancy, high math & sciences graduates, etc. The U.S. isn't one of these.
Usually the more secular a society, the more better it is. That is because humans learn how to understand, approach, and deal with human nature in a rational way, rather then through the ideas of cavemen and skydaddies.

Your numbers are incorrect in your bandwagon fallacy argument. Over 30% of Americans age 18-30 claim to believe in a god.

This is a free country, Not an atheist forum.
More than 9 in 10 Americans still say "YES" when asked the basic question "Do you believe in God?"; this is down only slightly from the 1940s, when Gallup first asked this question.

I've tried to get John to debate, but he won't. He just posts the same 3 or 4 posts again and again.
Except you haven't Rose. Provide any accountable position of belief that meets the evidentiary standards you hold others to. You, seriously don't expect me to debate nothing or whichever ridiculous assertion of the day you throw out?

Get your nothing out of here!

The more secular a society the more people butchered. There is no rationality, logic, or evidence for your nothing. Poof, the giant spaghetti nothing assembles something from nothing in an ordered way that defies mathematical possibility LOL.

We get you don't believe in God. What do you believe in this arena? Nothing is the answer of course. You have no evidence for any possibility but focus in your own weird way on one....with transparent specificity.

Time and again you loons avoid any debate choosing instead to impotently attempt marginalizing something you don't believe in.

Rename the forum Nothings march for an agenda shirking all intellectual honesty.

So John why should anyone accept god as anything more than a product of someone's imagination?

Another day I ask this and another day of ineptitude from the believers. Answer the question or get your nothing out of here!

Oh look, its another post from John with no proof of god in it. I bet the next one also has no proof of god in it.

When will John realise that he's lying about god?

As usual nothing but an attempt to steer the narrative to a God you don't believe in. This is an atheism forum. I've asked what you believe bigots.

Since you like to futilely mock a prime mover I offered to debate the reasons and evidences to believe in a prime mover vs any accountable position you care to explain. You don't want any part of that either. I don't debate nothing, but keep trotting it out lmao.

Give me Liberty- great name. Big supporter of our freedoms and amendments I suppose. Nah, probably another Obama kook.

Stump an antitheist! Ask them what they believe. True science that is repeatable and observable.

Nope, the narrative is about the unfounded *belief* in a god. You know, the one you can't seem to find any evidence for?

There is no evidence for you Drew. Oh, I forgot about the Eiffel tower you gave as an example LOL. I have evidences and reasons from various disciplines that led me to my belief of something larger than us. What led to your bigoted brand of nothing?

Hmm, another antitheist that fears engaging in a debate. Back to you Drew. Tell us nothing.

Because *you* can't seem to identify any.

Why is that?

Did you look for some and come up empty-handed? And you're too embarrassed to admit it?

No, John, you obviously don't. Otherwise, you'd share it here.

You're empty-handed, and too embarrassed to admit it.

Your forum Drew. Assume all you want, you obviously want no part of my challenge. Just keep repeating your nonclaim. Everyone should have a hobby.

Nothing bless.

It seems no one's forum.
Believers and non believers share.

Topix's forum, John.

You're as much a guest here as I am. Of course, unlike you, I have enough self-respect for my arguments to register my name, while you're so embarrassed by your position, you choose to remain anonymous.

Funny!

Another bunch of tangents ducking your nothing. Still no evidence or accountable position in an atheism forum.

Evidence supports claims. Atheism isn't a claim.

Of course, you know that *your* claim is groundless. That's why you can't produce any evidence for it.
