John, why do you keep stating that this is "your forum"? This is a discussion site, and the topic states "Atheists on the march in America". I don't know the background from which the person who initiated this topic started it, but it could very well be a Christian who is concerned that atheism is taking over, or more correctly, beliefs are diminishing, which is actually the case. It is a topic for discussion. People can have views right across the spectrum on a topic, and those who like to discuss things come to these places to discuss whatever topic interests them.Nothing vs something is the start point. Your forum. I'll wait or laugh at years of posts for nothing.
I am interest in religion, and gods, from the view of how they have been a major influence in humanity in the past and are still influencing man today, even though not any of them have been verified to be true. Those who seem to be pushing religion at us today seem to have some pretty evil agendas, in that they use their beliefs to justify hatred and bigotry.
That kind of thing is what causes a lot of the problems in the world, and man needs to find ways of solving worldly problems using worldly means, because believing and praying to invisible beings to solve these problems has never had any effect, and never will.
Yes, there is much wrong doing in the world, not in the name of religions, but still worldly means to stop this wrong doing is still the only way that these things are ever going to change. Praying to God, or denigrating people because they don't follow a god, is not and will not fix anything.
